BREAK CLOSED Cpes Randolph at the Scene When Last Drop of Water Was Shot Out of Mexican Intake At six o'clock sharp Sunday evening the last drop of water running through the far-famed arid 111-famed Mexican Intake was cut off and the entire flow of the wayward Colorado for tnree years run wild, was for the second time during that long and anxious per iod diverted to Its proper channel. The dam Is by no means finished yet, for It Is proposed to raise It to the height of the present trestle and to use Its surface as the grade of the Inter- California railroad. But the . rock, gravel and dirt of which the dam Is composed, shows high and dry above the water, a good forty feet In width, and faster than any possible rise In the Colorado can overcome, the lead thus galneirock, gravel and dirt will add to the stature of this bulwark to the safety and permanence of Irrigation along the lower Colorado.

There Is a curious legend of the <devll making his confession In Cologne cathedral. He professes to repent his crimes and to be willing to endure a thousand years of penance. "My ■on," sayg the priest, "all you need Is to bow before the image of the Crucified and ask him for pardon." "What!" cries the devil. "He who swept up the chips for Joseph, he who hung on a gallows?" And he turned on his heel, with a curse.
