FAMILY AT HIS BEOSIDE.
Despot Fought Against United States
In the Forties and French Forces at
Later Day Was Elected President
Again and Again.
Paris, July 3. General Porfirio Tlaz,
former president of Mexico, died here.
General Diaz's wife, Senora Carmen
Romero, Rubio Diaz and their son,
Porfirio Diaz, Jr., and the latter's wife
were at his bedside when the end
, General Diaz began to fail rapidly
about three weeks ago and,, while his
death was not unexpected, wing to
his advanced age and recent failing
health, the crisis came suddenly.
Colonel Diaz, in announcing the
death of his. father, said that a com
plication of disease, due to advanced
age, was the cause.
General Diaz was born in 1830. His
family were of old Spanish stock, with
an infusion of Indian blood. Left
fatherless at the age of three, he was
educated at the expense of the bishop
of Oaxaca, with the intent km of be
coming a priest, but he eventually
turned to law and then at the out
break of the war with the Unite J
States turned to a military career. He
served throughout that struggle in a
militia company. He and one other
were the only two in the country who
dared openly oppose the continuation
of Santa Ana's dictatorship. His exe
cution was ordered, but he escaped
and joined Herrora's revolt. He
speedily made a reputation as a sol
dier, and as a brigadier general he
was the chief thorn in the side of the
French forces, when, taking advantage
of the civil war in the United States,
they attempted to place Archduke
Maximilian of Austria on the throne
of a Mexican empire. Diaz harassed
the enemy constantly, and in June.
SOT, captured Mexico City with his
forces. On the re establishment ofi
the republic he was unsuccessful as a
candidate for president, but in 1S77)
he was elected to nil tne unexpired
term of the fugitive president, Lerdo.
His last and eighth election was in
To Diaz was given credit for the ad
vance of Mexico to the status of a
stable and prosperous government, al
though the autocratic methods he em
ployed were widely criticised.

Things to Consider in Buying a Car!
SERVICE Every Overland Car sold in this vicinity since 1908
is still in service.
PRICE No car today gives as much real value for the money as
the Overlancl. You can satisfy yourself on this subject by comparing
specifications with competitive cars.
r UP-KEEP No car was ever built that did not at some time or
other need some repair. Repairs for the Overland can be obtained
the same day as ordered, and at prices far below what other manu
facturers charge. This fact does not occur to the average buyer until
he needs some parts and finds it takes from one to three weeks to get
parts and in many cases at prices two and three times what the Over
ly., J ool,o AiiMmnkllo' far.tnries have declined in numbers from
270 in 1911 to 1 19 in 1915. In other words 15! factories out of 270
have quit making cars in the last four years, and well informed men
in the automobile business predict that the change in the next two
years will be still more startling, which means that it will be still more
difficult and still more delay on parts for cars that are not being man
ufactured at that time.
There is only one manufacturing plant in the world that produces
more cars than the Overland Company, which has increased its pro
duction from 400 cars in 1908 to over 100,000 cars per year now.
If the Overland car had not given far better average satisfaction to
the buyer in the past it would not have outstripped all its competitors,
many of which were in the automobile field twice as long.
