au t b ent ica t ed reminiscence :
"One morning, as an officer was
standing: in For street, Hevonport, his
attention was drawn to three post
chaises, with four horses to each,
drawn up at the door of the Kind's
Ajins ho' el. These were presently
driven off. On inquiring what great
p-rson h;.d arrived, the ol'icer was
informed that aii this display was the
freak of a common sailor, who had
just received ."".; h i ;n prize money, and.
having been granted but a week's
leave, his inc: onuity had devised the
most ostentatious modi,' of getting rid
of this windfall, lie had hired one
chaise and four for himself, another
for his hat and a third for his cudgel.

hoped, nearly consume the whole; sum."
Really Little Known of Poland.
Poland's history, with its fight for
freedom, justice and equality, its
struggle in defense of Christianity and
European civilization and its unself
ishness in aiding the weak, made it
famous among the woriu's nations,
both in success and adversity. The
achievements of the Polish nation In
art, music, literature, science and re
Mgi(:i are known, as are the life deeds
of its great men.
Hut the industries,- mines, trade and
natural wealth of that unhappy coun
try have since its partition been to a
great extent a scaled book to most
of the people outside of the nations
attempting to assimilate the Toles.
This was principally due to the in
ability of people from the outside to
break through the network of foreign
governmental systems in which Po
land is enmeshed. Buffalo News.
How Some Insects Multiply. .
The fecundity of certain insect forms
is astounding.' The progeny of one lit
tle insect, the "hop aphis," sees thir
teen generations born to it in a single
year and would, if unchecked to the
end of the twelfth generation, multi
ply to the inconceivable number of
ten sextiilioas of individuals. If this
brood were marshaled in line, ten to
the inch, it would extend to a point so
sunk in the profundity of space that
light from the head of the procession,
traveling at the rate of 1S4,000 miles
a secoud, would take 2,500 years to
reach the earth. In eight years the
progeny of a pair of gypsy moths
could destroy all the foliage in the
United States if unchecked. Popular

Four Other Yankees Seen Under
Guard of Bandits Who Take
Jiminez and Do Whole
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 19. An uni
dentified American was killed when a
Villa hand took Jiminez, and four
Americans were seen umler a guard
of bandits at Parral during Villa's
occupation of that town, according to
reports believed by federal agents to
be authentic, brought to the border by
Refugees further state that the dis
tiict between Parral and Jiminez has
been the scene of the killing by Villa's
followers of more than 200 Chinese.
Body is Burned.
The American killed at Jiminez
was described as about f0 years old
nd known to be from Torreon on his
way to Chihuahua City. He was mur
dered, said the refugees, in the Jimi
nez hotel, and his body lay for some
time in front of the building, when
after being robbed of clothing and
valuables it was placed on a bonfire.
x The same refugees who claim to
iiave been witnesses of the outrages
also say that two Mexican women
who had married Chinese and their
live half-caste children were found
and thrown alive into the fire and
cremated in sight of the crowd. The
bodies of seven murdered Chinese, ac
cording to the same authority, were
seen in the streets of the town.
Gipsies Robbed and Slain.
Two Mexicans who escaped from
Parral affirm that they saw four
Americans there under a Vijla guard.
They said these men had lived in the
town, adding that they heard the
Americans working at the Alvarado
mines got away. Another report
brought to the border was to the ef
fect that the bodies of thirty-five gyp
sies of both sexes were seen on the
roadside near Parral, murdered and
robbed by Villa bandits. The gypsies
were believed to be of Syrian origin.
Spares Japs and Germans.
All foreigners that Villa has caught,
except Japanese and Germans, have
been put to death, the reports agree,
and even the Germans are said to have
suffered at least in the instance of
Theodore Hoemuller of Parral. Vari
ous reports of Hoemuller's death have
been received here during the last
The Chinese are called the heaviest
sufferers. The fact that none are to.
be seen in the district in which they
formerly did a large mercantile busi
ness is taken by the refugees as proof
that all, numbering over 200, met the
fate of the Chinese caught at Parral
Arrives with Silver.
Chihuahua City, Mex., Nov. 19.
According to a report received here,
the Americans in the Parral district
left that place on the advice of Gen
eral Luis Herrera, two days before
the evacuation of the town by the
Carranza garrison. The Americans
are said to have left for the moun
tains. From a source believed to be re
liable, it is learned that Edgar Kock,
a German subject, whose fate has
caused anxiety to his friends, arrived
in Santa Rosalia from Parral, October
20, with fifty-seven bars of silver.
Both Kock and his silver fell into the
hands of the bandit leader, Julio
Acosta, when the town was seized the
following day. Kock, however, was set
free after being robbed of his treas
ure, the report says. At the end of
four days, he is said to have left
for Jiminez in the company of two
Mexicans. Nothing further has been
heard here regarding him.

WILL ASK CONGRESS
TO PASS AMENDMENT
ON DIRECT VOTING
Portland, Ore., Nov. 19. Senator
George E. Chamberlain, who left to
night for Washington, announced that
at the coming session of congress he
will introduce a proposed constitu
tional amendment providing for the
election of president by direct vote
of the people. His intention, he said,
is to get the amendment under way
promptly, so that it may be acted on
by congress and, if adopted there, by
the legislatures of the various states
in time to become effective for the
next presidential election.
"The recent election demonstrated
more strongly than ever the desira
bility of electing the president by
direct vote," said Senator Chamber
lain. "If five thousand votes in Cali
fornia had been changed that state
would have gone for Hughes and he
would have been elected, notwith
standing 400,000 more votes were cast
in the nation for Wilson than for
Hughes. Another time the present
system might wrork to the disadvan
tage of the other party."

man of the senate committee on mili

Determination of Washington Toward
the Meeting With Mexican
Washington, D. C, Nov. 19. With
President Wilson's complete approval
of his course, Secretary Lane will re
turn to Atlantic City tomorrow de
termined to bring the sessions of the
American-Mexican joint commission
to an early conclusion. It was clearly
indicated in official circles that the
joint conference is about to end, agree
ment or no agreement.
If the commission fails to formulate
a plan, it is thought that the prospect
of settling border disputes through
diplomacy will be remote. Officials
make no prediction as to what steps
the Washington government might
take in that event to insure the safety
of border towns and ranches.
Officials in Accord.
Secretary Lane is understood to
have found President Wilson, Secre
tary Lansing and Secretary Baker in
full accord with him on every point
when he laid before them last night
a review of the efforts the American
commissioners had made to reach a

It is believed the American commis
sioners will renew tomorrow tneir
original suggestion: That each govern
ment patrol its own side of the line
independently, but with the under
standing that American troops will
pursue into Mexico on a hot trail-any
bandits who attack border towns
Coupled with that suggestion, presum
ably, was the statement that General
Pershing's forces would be withdrawn
gradually from Mexico and that no
large force would be sent across the
line again unless the de facto gov
ernment permitted raiders to assemble
in such force in Mexico that a strong
expedition was necessary to prevent a
Scon to Withdraw.
Army officials believe that the
American expeditionary force soon
will be moving toward the border, re
gardless of the turn events may take
at Atlantic City. In its present posi
tion many officers hold the expedition
is of no strategic value, while the long
line of communication with the ad
vance base is a strong source o
It is understood here that the
troops would not be ordered home
while negotiations were pending.
Official advices today indicated that
all of the Americans at Parral had
made their escape and will soon ar
rive in Nogales, Ariz. There has been
much anxiety here because of persist
ent reports that Villa bandits had put
many foreigners to death when they
raided the town recently. The Amer
icans, six or seven in numbeij, are be
lieved to have made their way across
the mountains to Culiacan, Sinaloa,
and started toward Nogales over the
line of the southern Pacific of Mexico.
The advices indicate that the Villa
forces are not in actual possession of
Parral, Jiminez or any of the other
towns in that region.
Fate Not Definitely Known.
The fate of the Chinese and other
foreigners besides Americans in the
vicinity where the bandits are active
is not definitely known, but it is be
lieved several Chinese have been
Great doubt is expressed that it can
go through because it is admittedly
uneconomic in that the entente allied
nations are competitive rather than
or-ordinative. Its approval by the
Paris conference and its increasing ag
itation abroad, however, make prep
aration against it necessary. The
Webb bill, now before congress, to
permit co-operation among exporters,
will be one of the first steps urged.

DRIVERS MUST KEEP
LIGHT AT BOTH ENDS
The city council has icsued an ulti
matum to the automobile owners and
drivers that hereafter when they are
driving on the streets of the city at
night they must see that both the tail
and headlights on the cars are lit up
in compliance with the law of the
state and the city ordinances. There
has been a great deal of complaint
lodged with the city authorities con
cerning the driving of automobiles
without their tail lights lit up after
dusk and several times there has been
narrow escapes from accidents due to
this practice of running without lights.
The chief of police has been instructed
to be on the lookout for the offenders
and haul them up before the court.
It would seem that the drivers of auto
mobiles for their own safety would
see that their lights are kept lit as it
may save them a serious accident some
time that they would greatly regret.
The police are determined to see that
the ordinance is enforced and will do
their utmost to nab the offenders.
