"I've got half a million in joke (gold dust) and I'm going to finish tho caatle," the famous old desert rat said today, His blue eyes beamed as he sunk Ms fork in a plete.ot black bottom plo for breakfast. He exhibited ono of tho fattest rolls of currency ho has carried In years. fishing out a $100 bank note from .atnong Borne $1000 notes, he said: "You gotta bo/ careful about flashing these $1000 notes around hero nowaday a*" There aro -more guys than ever that are ready to 'crack you on the head." Scotty (born Walter Scott) went back into the rocks of Death Valley In mid-July with a now string of mules. "tt'S'the finest string I ever had, I brought a million back from tho rocks "I figured it's time to finish the castle, i started in 1052 and spent $2,381,000 on it and then stopped when they questioned my title years ago and the foreigners tried to take the land away. Roosevelt settled that last year, giving mo tho title. "All the rolling stock is rusted now and the first thing I'm doing is getting about $10,000 worth of trucks to start things up again. 1 gotta put up big walls to save tho castle from the spouts (desert flash floods), finish tho moat and lake, and put on tho tile and other things on the outside." The caPtlo is located In Grapevine canyon, in northern Death valley. It Is a group of buildings, Including a \vatch tower with chimes, a clock tower, a water works sufficient to supply a small city and miles of tunnels underneath. Tho main dwellings are luxuriously furnished, the, music room containing a $75,000 pipe organ, the master bedroom and furnishings costing $180,000, Tin Can Alley Is M^ ' ': ..- ' ' -fc ^^5|* ft % Street in Florida Prc«« Lnattd r<rej W13ST PALM BEACH., Fla.» Sept. Tin Can Alley is a reality, not a j name, In West Palm Beach. .Pot* nearly 10 years Superintendent aD. D. Howard of the depart* mont of B t re ota and public Improve- menla has been utilizing discarded tin cans for street building purposes, collecting tho cans from the city Incinerator. The cans take the place of about half the. amount of crushed rock that would otherwise bo used in tho street base, savins: half the cost of the roadoed. According to Superintendent Howard, they make excellent streets, and thoroughfares with a foot thick layer of tin cans rolled down to half tlxat thickness arc holding up as well as those surfaced with rock. Six months after tho cans are spread over tho roadbed and rolled, the tin undergoes oxidation and the cans arc transformed into a firm, hard mass. Tho plan was originally used in California. r if • I!

JOAD, author of "Return to Philosophy" has finished his new book, "The Dictator Resigns." "My dictator," says Professor Joad, "unliko his contemporaries belle vea that a mind freo to go wrong IH better tha.n one compelled to go right. Therefore, ho resigns and proposes from his armchair, instead of imposing from a palace, reforms which will increase tho general sum of happiness. Mr. Joad's reforms cover a wide ran go M from unilateral diftarmarne.nt to an embargo on dead animals' skins used as female wear- Ing apparel." Hollywood Another ironical study of dictators of a different sort in Max Miller'* "For tho Sake of Shadows" in which Miller warns young writers that "You can't win in Hollywood. Too many young authors are drawn hero after their first success, and hence arc lost to tho country forever. These writers become only too soon poor frenzied slaves donating their life's few hours to obtain a twper- flutty of things they do not need, do not enjoy, and which in time will be snatched from them anyway." "Sour grapes?" the publishers ask. "Well, you wiy so, for Max didn't like It when they took the title of hla famous 'I Cover the Waterfront' and built a film around it which he Bald had no relation to his book at all. At any rate, Max doesn't like Hollywood which Invited him down after the success of his filmed book, gave htm u spaclouH office, a large mahogany desk, a handful of pcn'cils, plenty of time, two stenographers and a. heavenly salary, and told him to get busy and 'ho funny.' Hr- flopped, ho thinks, on the assignment, and Tor the Hake of Shadows' tell why."

WHAT TO DO FOR ECZEMA ITCHING AND BURNING > Wash the affected part* with Rcsinol Soap and ^arm water to soften scales and crusts. Resinol Soap Is suggested because it contains no excess of free alkali, and is especially suited to tender skin. Dry by patting with a soft cloth— do not rub.

For over 40 years it has been—and still is—successfully used to relieve quickly the itching and burning of eczema. It contains soothing ingredients that aid healing. Use Resinol Ointment today and enjoy comfort tomorrow. Get a jar, also a cake of Keninol Soap, at any druff store. For free sample, write to Resinol, Dept. 1, Baltimore, Md.
