BIRTHDAY OF MR.
A very pleasant time was enjoyed
at the beautiful country home of Mr.
and Mrs. Wendell Heil on Sunday,
Match I2th, in honor of the sixty
eiirht birthdav of Mr. Heil. The event
was a complete surprise for the guest
of honor, as during his absence from
home for a few hours the large num
ber of relatives and friends gathered
at the Heil home and on the return
of Mr. and Mrs. Heil they were very
much surprised to find that the '"in
vaders" had taken possession of the
home, but in a few minutes they re
covered from their surprise and made
their friends entirely at home and a
splendid time was enjoyed by every
one fortunate enough to be present.
The afternoon was spent in visiting
and having a fine social time until an
appropriate hour, when a dainty and
delicious four-course luncheon was
served, which was most thoroughly
enjoyed. Soon after the guests de
parted homeward, wishing Mr. Heil
many more such happy occasions in
the future. Those who were present
were: Henry Heil and family, Ed
ward Heil and family, John Heil and
family, Geoige Heil, jr., and family,
W. H. Heil and family, George Heil,
sr., and family, Will Rodanz and fam
ily, John Rodman and family, Rev.

WATCH YOUR RUBBISH.
Considerable complaint has been
made of parties placing rubbish and
other debris in the gutters and along
the curbs in the recently created curb

persons dumping rubbish are punished.

San Antonio, Tex., March 19.
Francisco Villa, in his retreat near
Colonia Gracia is facing the problem
of fight or run. With less than 400
men as an immediate personal body
guard abot't him, the wily old leader
of many i desperate, murderous raid,
is beginning to feel, for the first time

From the American consul at Chi
huahua, General Funston late today
received his first information of Vil
la's whereabouts, other than reports
from Mexican sources. The American
consul wired that Villa was seen Fri
day at Colonia Garcia, a small Mexi
can hamlet near the village of Galea
na. This seems to effectually dispose
of the report that th bandit leader
had reached Las Cruces, more than
100 miles south of Casus Grandes.

Perishing sent a call to El Paso for
a dozen cowboys and other Americans
familiar with northern Mexico.
With Villa at Colonia Garcia were
400 men. These, however, are known
to be merely a personal body guard
and officers at Fort Sam Houston do
not regard the number as at all in
dicative of Villa's real strength.
Net Is Tightening.
In spite of his craftiness, the net
is closing in, according to authorita
tive Mexican sources. South of Gale
ana, Carranza is massing a body of
several thousand soldiers among the
Mexican Northwest railway to the
west. Between Villa's present posi
tion and the Sierra Madres are strong
detachments of Carranzistas at stra
getic points along the right-of-way.
Forcing south at a speed that up to
today had been relatives faster than
Villa's retreat, is the cavalry column
under Colonel Dodd, which made the
wonderful dash of 100 miles in
forty-eight hours to make certain of
the safety of Mormon colonists about
Casas Grandes and to intercept Villa's
suspected flight to the mountains
west. Close behind Dodd is the main
cavalry column of General Perishing.
Protecting Perishing's line of com
munication are infantry regiments.
The immediate future seems full of
trouble for Francisco Villa.
General Funston officially stated to
night that American troops will pass
through Mexican cities or towns when
such passage is necessary, but vvill '

"Snipers" Are Expected.
The individual "snipers" by Vil
lastas upon the advancing column of
American soldiers may be expected at
any time, was stated by army officers
at department headquarters here. The
country through which the troops are
passing is filled with former Villa sol
diers, but a clash with a considerable
body of Villistas is not considered
likely until the American troopers
move south from Casas Grandes. It
is possible Perishing's cavalry column
may overtake Colonel Dodd's command
early Sunday and the two unite for
the second stage of the march south
The announcement that Colonel
Sickel of the Twelfth cavalry will
hereafter be in command of the bor

was made late today. He will have

chase will not be over. Villa tonight
was in full flight some hundred miles
south of Perishing toward his moun
tain strongholds on the Babicora
ranch seventy miles from San Geroni
mo. Dodd was considerably nearer
Villa, but was not expected to ente
the Sierra Madres until Perishing's
column comes up.
For fifteen years Diaz rurales, fa
miliar with every inch of the Guer
rero district in which the Babicova
ranch is located, pursued Villa with

American forces face a superhuman
task in accomplishing in a few weeks

Civilian scouts worn out by the
hardships of the desert march with
Perishing's column, were making their
way back to Columbus and El Paso.
The first arrivals, under orders to
observe silence regarding their move
ments, hinted that the expedition was
Enough volunteers immediately were

The returned scouts confirmed the
successful use of the seven aeroplanes
from the San Antonio corps in scout
ing with the expedition. Their work
was done in a novel manner. Soar
ing southward from Columbus at a
speed of fifty to seventy-five miles an
hour, the machines easily caught up
with the main division of infantry and
artillery. Passing the cavalry in the
vanguard the aeroplanes sailed some
what nearer the ground to make
observations of the country in advance
of the tt 'oops. The aviator then
turned for Columbus and on alight
ing there made a report of his obser
vations which was sent back over the
signal corps field wireless to Perish
ing. The seven aeroplanes were in their
hangers at Columbus tonight. All

machines will be maintained at the
base camp. The birdmen expect to en
gage in real scouting for Villa when
a permanent base for the expedition
i is established in iviexu'o.
The operation of the field wireless
has not proved entirely satisfactory.
Four of the five outfits with the main
body were out of communication to
night awaiting repairs. Perishing's
communication with his base at Co
lumbus was seriously impaired.
Julio Sanford, American member of
the Carranza garrison at Ascencion,
arrived in El Paso with the report
that Perishing's cavalry scouts had
passed southward ao short distance
west of Guzman. He said the Ascen-
cion garrison knew of the expedition
and its purpose and that there was no
les.entment against the invasion. San
ford's claim that the American expedi
tion had not aroused the Mexicans to
revolt was confirmed by Carranza
Consul Garcia here tonight. He re
ported all peaceful in northern Chi
huahua and stated that when Dodd'
column passed the large Mexican
quarter in Casas Grandes there was
no sign of disorder.

Colonel Dodd struck into the heart
j of Villa's territory by ere of the most
remarkable marches in the annals of
American war history. Leaving Ha
chita. N. M., in the dead of night he
tutored Mexico before dawn Thursday
and by forced marches: over a desert
hilly country arrived at Casas Grandes
early today, insuring the safety of 500
American Mormon colonists, frequent
!y reported in danrer of extermination
by the Columbus raiders.
R"sting in the heat of midday and
traveling partly by the bright moon-
liuht of the desert, the Seventh and
Tenth (negro) regiments of cavalry
in Dodd's division covered the seventy-five
or on? hundred difficult miles
in time regarded as extraordinary
considering the nateure of the coun
tiy. Mormon scouts, acquainted with

While the border country was ting

Mont Rcbb's New Napkin.
Mont Robb is the genial gentleman
who manages the business of the
Farmers' elevator at this place, and,
as everybody knows, Mont enjoys a
practical joke as well as anybody, even
if he is the victim. Mont holds down
the plate (and puts down the grub)
::t the west end of l table at Wes
Clark's hotel three times a day. It so
happens that Mont is the owner of a
very pretty napkin ring which al
ways contains his "rag" for the pro
tection of his shirt front, and has been
coveted by other boarders, especially
by Prof. Severyn and Druggist
Keedy. A few days ago Mont appear
ed at the usual time for dinner an 1
carefully extracted the white linen
from his napkin ring, and the sight
that was beheld was worth twice the
price of admission, for instead of the
usual napkin Mont unfolded a miniat
ure suit of underwear, and a good
lautrh was enjoyed at Mont's expense,
and the blush that overspread the
face of Prof. Severyn was so hot as
to singe the window curtains. Union
