'Border Desperado Who Com-
mitted Many Crimes With Ax
Is Killed by Deputy
Klo Hondo, Tex.—When Alfredo
T.unii, Mexican outlaw, murdered Gua-
dulupe Moreno and kldnupod the
beuutiful alxteen-yeur-old widow of his
victim, a few duys ago, he committed
the last of a series of bloody exploits.
4.mm was trailed to his camp in tiie
■ haiMirral, 25 tulles from here, by a
(sheriff's posse and there shot and
lulled by Deputy Sheriff Victor Or
Zegu. With the death of Luna and
She confession he niude to Mrs. Mo-
reno there was solved the mystery of
several murders and assaults which
have been committed in the Kio Hondo
Section of the lower Hio Grande bor-
der in the last two years.
For three days Luna kept Mrs.
Moreno a captive in his remote camp,
submitting her to many tortures. Ac-
cording to her sworn story, Lunu en-
tered the Moreno home live miles from
Hio Hondo, late ut night. He awakened
her first and asked if her husband was
nt home. The latter answered for
tiimself, and Luna then struck Moreno
over the head with a pistol and then
picked up an ax with which he con-
tinued heating him until he was dead.
The bandit then grabbed Mrs. Moreno
nud placed her on a horse in front of
tiiin and fled. He threatened to kill
her If she niude an outcry. They
traveled most of the night, dually ar-
riving nt Luna’s camp.
Kept Qirl Prisoner.
The camp is about two miles from
Kancho Nuevu and five miles from
1.08 Uhiiioh. Here the girl was kept
In captivity from Thursday morning
tin Hi Saturday afternoon. During
tills time Mrs. Moreno did not eut
anything, although Lumt brought her
food. He went to the Chapu ranch
house, some distance from the camp
to obtain food, she said. It was at
the camp that Lunu told her of his

repeatedly threatened with death by

of his time telling her of the many
crimes he had committed. He said

Miss Ituth Khlers, their daughter, hut
he was foiled In this effort.
The killing of the Schroeder girl
wns described as the most atrocious
In the history of the lower border
country. The girl was accustomed to
go to and from school, about three
miles from her home, on a horse. She
failed to return home one evening.
Nothing was thought of It at the time,
us she frequently spent nights with
friends in San Benito. Next day, when
she failed to appear, a sefirch was
started. Her horse was found, and
Inter her badly mutilated body was
discovered hidden In underbrush.

flays, nnd one man, a Mexican, be-
lieved to have had some knowledge of

his brutallt.v nnd treachery.
Luna had been suspected for some
time of having been Implicated In the
Killers crime. At the time this crime
was committed, Sheriff Sam Robert-
son put Victor Ortega on the case.
Ortega expressed the belief that Luna
was the guilty man, and he spent most
of tils time after the Elder crime
searching for Luna.
Got His Man—Dead.
Robertson offered a reward of $100
for the murderer of Guadalupe Moreno,
dead or alive, and Ortega, with the
faithfulness with which he started on
the case, got his man—dead.

Ready to Receive Proposal After
Washington.—The modern "society”
flapper, with her coming-out party, has
nothing on the American Indlau maid-

party has been among the tribal cus-
toms from time immemorial.
Among the Washoe Indians of Ne-
vadn there is a dance or ceremony
known as "the girl’s dance.” in honor
•of the young girl who becomes eligible
for marriage. Her white cousin, how-
ever, would hardly care to be the star
of such a feast, for the guest of honor
la allowed to eut nothlug at all for
four days previous.
Ou the fourth night the dance starts
at about eight o’clock, and sometimes
lasts until sunrise tlie following morn-
ing. The Indians form a circle, Jolulng
hands, and move by short side steps
In o ring, humming a sort of chant
without words or meaning.
The girl, accompanied by an elder
woman as a sort of chaperon, and
currying a long staff to support her
because of the weakness induced by
her long fast, weaves In and out of
the dance. Joining in the step.
As the dance proceeds late Into the
night, the girl’s famtl) give money and
other possessions to the dunegrs to
keep them moving and to Induce oth-
ers to Join In. The greater the num-
ber of dancers the greater the popu-
larity of the family. Shortly after
midnight a fenst is given by the girl’s
relatives, and all participate.
The ceremony closes at sunrise when

amid a wild scramble. A *cnn of water

In the fifteenth chapter of Genesis,
we have the world's first great hero
cited for faith In God. Three times
nfter he has finished his remarkable
career, he is called ftie Friend of God.
"Art not thou our God, who didst

it to the seed of Abraham thy friend
forever?" II Chron, 20:7. "But thou
Israel art my servant, Jacob whom I
have chosen, the seed of Abraham my
friend.”—Isaiah 41 :8.
"And the Scripture was fulfilled
which sal th, 'Abraham believed God,*
nnd it was imputed upon him for
righteousness: nnd he was called tho
Friend of God.”—Jumes 2:23. This l»

I. What Does It Mean to Be the
Friend of God?
Friend Is one of the sweetest nnd
tenderest words In the human lan-
guage. It describes the glorifying in-
timacy of every relationship In life.
Husband nnd wife, father and son,
mother and daughter, brother nnd sis-
ter nre all enriched by the frlensl.ip
enjoyed. Charles Kingsley declared
this the secret of his life—"I had a
friend.” One had carved upon his
tombstone, “Here l.es the friend of Sir
Philip Sydney.” Many have sought
to express this summuiu bonum of the
Christian life, by writing the won-
drous condescension of God. In admit-
ting redeemed mortals to an Intimacy
that Inspires such songs as, "What a
Friend We Have In Jesus." "Jesus Is
a Friend of Mine," and "I’ve Found n
Friend." But Abraham enjoyed a still
greater distinction "He was called
the Friend of God." Think wlmt this
means! A friend trusts you and will
not hear n word against you. A friend
sticks to you In spite of circumstances,,
and loves you with all your faults. A
friend Is never offended though often
grieved. A friend understands you
without explanation nnd shares with
you the deepest confidences. Think
of being « friend of God in that way.
God trusts me, understands me. loves-
me. will not hear a word against me-
and tells me Ills secret a Hus earth
anything beyond this?
II. What Is the Basis of Such an
Why did God speak of "Abraham
my friend?" Not because this patri-
arch was perfect or sinless not tie-
cause of any great service performed,,
not because of charity, philanthropy.
But because of filth nnd obedience.
"Abraham believed God" nnd acted
accordingly. God tested him to the
full and he staggered not but dared to
believe the Impossible. Aged and child-
less, God says. "Cuust thou count the
stars? So shall thy seed be." and he
His wife laughed at him; his neigh-
bors said he was Islonary but Abra-
ham was firm In faith, giving glory to
God. No wonder God cited him for

How precious the news thnt such
