A sea anchor was rigged up and
an effort made to retard the dirigi

an increased speed.
Nine Rockets Fired
About 8:30 o ciock that night a
ship was sighted and nine rockets
were fired from a pistol. The vessel
apparently saw the signals and di
rected, its course toward the B-12,
only to turn away. About that time
the pipeline leading to the emer

leak was discovered all of the oil
was lost, causing a considerable de
crease of ballast. The B-12 began
to rise and ascended steadily until
an altitude of 3.000 feet was reach
All night the dirigible continued
its wild dash northward, the crew
meantime consuming the small

Early on the morning of the sec

horizontal fins dropped to a verti

the big bag alternately dropped un

was thrown overboard to keep the

a ship was sighted and it directed
its course toward the dirigible, the

ordered all Americans hanged when

Villa and Marfan Lopez quarreled
after the retreat from Juarez, he
said, and divided their forces.
This statement was made by Don

owns a large store at Villa Ahuma
Best said Hipolito Villa was seri

Break With Lopez.
The British merchant gave the
first details of a break between Villa
and Martin Lopez as related by
Mexicans who said they were pres
ent. "Villas men, ragged, without
ammunition and sullen, after retir
ing before the Americans at Juarez,
held a meeting at Villa Ahumada,
Mexican friends told me," Best said.
"They voted to depose Villa, in fa
vor of Angeles, who then was at
Samalayuca tearing up the railroad
to prevent American troops from
pursuing them south.
"Next day General Quiroga wijth

Villa sent Martin Lopez to engage
them. Lopez was defeated. Villa
withdrew, reorganized his demoral

statements of witnesses."

"Lopez was apparently angered

telling them the Americans , were
friends of himself and Angeles, that
the American Red Cross would care
for their wounded and everything
would be fine for them after they
had taken the Juarez port. Lopez
announced he was through with
Villa, cursed him and said he was
going to look out for himself, in the
future and would have nothing more
to do with Villa. Villa sent for
Angeles at Samalayuca, but left for
San Lorenzo de Carmen before we
heard whether Angeles reached
Villa's camp. Villa also threatened
to burn the ranch buildings at Santo
Domingo, but Lopez stopped him,
Mexicans told me."
Villa agents deny Villa intended
to kill Americans, calling attention
to the fact that more than two
weeks had passed since American
troops dispersed Villa's forces with
no reprisals having been exacted.
Loss Of Appetite.
As 'a general rule there is noth
ing serious about a loss of appetite,
and if you skip a meal or only eat
two meals a day for a few days you
will soon have a relish for your
meals when meal time comes. Bear
in mind that at least five hours
should always elapse between meals
so as to give the food ample time to
digest and the stomach a period of
rest before a second meal is taken
Then 'if you eat no more than you
crave and take a reasonable amount
of. outdoor exercise every day you
will not need, to worry about your
appetite. When the loss of appetite
is caused by constipation as is often
the case, that should ne corrected
