War Must Come.
The trend of events in Mexico is such
fiat a formal declaration of, war wil)j
undoubtedly be made within the next
forty-eight hours. In the, investment
of Vera Cruz by men from tne United
States war ships, four wero killed and
twenty wounded Tuesday, and twelve
were killed and fifty wounded in tho
engagements yesterday. The city is in
complete command of the Unitad States.
General Maas, the Mexican commander
who had been in charge of Vera Cruz
but withdrew his troops when the
Americans first landed, has gathered
fresh forces and intends to give battle.
About 2000 men from the warships aro
now stationed at Vera Cruz and with
the aid of the guns from the ships will
be able, to repulse any attack made by
the Mexican communder. The United
States minister in Mexico City Iihb been
given his passport, and the Mexican
minister at Wa3nington has asked for
similar papers. It is probable that Villa
and Huerta will drop their warfare
against each other and join hands in
repelling United States invasion.
At all army posts throughout this
country troops are being placed in
readiness for departure to Mexican
territory, the patrol on the Mexican is
being increased, and tho militia in Ne
braska and all other states is being re
cruited to the full war strength. All
Americans in Mexico are leaving that
country as fast as possible, 1,200 having
taking refuge on foreign vessels in
Tampico bay, while thousands aie

a visit of several days with her parents,

Tho infant daughter of Clyde Mc-Michael-died
suddenly Thursday after
noon, ine little child had suffered
since birth from paralysis of (la left
side and abnormal development. About
a year ago a surgeon from Omnha re
moved a plate of bone from tho skull
over the point whore there was a de
pression to rcmovo the pressure on the
brain. There wns quite a marked im
provement, but not ns great as desir
able. Thursday tho same doctor
operated again to ntill further rolicve
the pressure symtoms, as tho former
opening had almost entirely healed.
The patient went through the operation
successfully and seemingly recovered
from the ancstetic satisfactorily, but
while the family and nurse were at
dinner the child called for her mother
and as the nurse and members ot tho
family responded she suddenly expired.
The wound was in perfect condition and
there was no apparent reason for her
sudden death. The physicians in chargo
were unable to give any definito cause
for the death any further fthan to say
that the child was abnormal and the
sudden death entirely unexpected and
