Twelve Hours of Fighting on Plains
Near Conejos and More Soon
.At the Federal Front. Conejos. Mex.—
Twelve hours of brisk fighting on
the desert plains 300 miles south of the
American border, between a force of
^.000 rebels under General Orozco and
an equally strong body of federals.
under General Huerta, resulted Sun
day in a decided advan’age to the gov
The fighting began at daybreak and
at nightfall the sandy mesas between
here and Yermo, fourteen miles north,
where the insurrectos were gradually
forced back, were covered with dead
and wounded. ,
Nearly 500 are believed to have been
killed and wounded on both sides. A
courier reported that Geueral Trucy
Aubert. the dashing federal command
er. had been shot in the leg.
The rebels abandoned ten c2naons
and much ammunition in their retreat.
General Joaquin Tellez, who had
beer, stationed in the rear of Huer>a's
vanguard, at noon was sent around to
the eastward to flank the rebels and
cut off their retreat. Tonight federal
headquarters claim the rebels are
completely surrounded and that the
second day of fighting will prove
equally decisive.
This town, occupied Saturday by thq
vanguard of the rebels, was riddled
with bullets, when the federals gal
loped into it at sunset. Over to the
foothills to the north the insurrectos
could be seen retreating.
General Huerta has been receiving
many telegrams of congratulations oa
the outcome of the day's fighting.
Should the advantage gained Sunday
be followed by equal success Monday,
the federal leaders are confident it
will mean the annihilation of the In
surrecto army. j
General Huerta considers it prob
able. however, that the rebels will
make their iast stand at Esealon. their
central base, fourteen miles to the
north, where they have built fortifica
tions and trenches in the last ■ fort
As they retreated the rebels de
stroyed several bridges, but the fed
erals were equipped with pontoons
and will not be seriously affected.

Appears on Board Steamship After
Vessel Steams From Daiquiri—
Husband One of Craft's Crew.
Baltimore. Md—Cool and possessed,
and just 2® years old. Mrs. C. U
Boggs, an American, was arraigned
before Immigration Commissioner
Stump for being a stowaway on board
the steamer Remembrance, which ar
rived at Sparrows Point from Dai
quiri. She was liberated.
She accompanied by l>er bus
band, who had been a passenger on
board the Remembrance as one of the
crew. Boggs proved that he was an
American citizen, and as his wife was
the spouse of a citiien she received
her freedom. The two left the immi
gration offices and disappeared as
mysteriously as the wife had hid in
the hold of the vessel.
The Remembrance steamed from
Daiquiri after taking on a cargo of
iron ore. Boggs had signed as one of
the crew at Colon. Panama, and it is
thought that he then assisted his wife
aboard the vessel and secreted, her in
the hold.
The vessel was two days oat from
Daiquiri when Mrs. Boggs appeared on
deck, aEd Captain Xesbitt was at a
loss for words to ask whence she had
come. When men are found on board
vessels illegally they are forced to
scrub decks and do other arduous la
bor. but Mrs. Boggs waiked the decks
throughout the voyage, watched the
crew work and enjoyed the salt air ot
the Atlantic.

San Francisco.—Mme. Ricardo, a
lion trainer, known as the "singing
girl In the tiger's den," is speechless
as the result of an attack upon her

When the grizzly bore her husband
to the ground the woman screamed
for assistance. Ricardo remained
quiet, covering his head and face with
his arms.
Mme. Ricardo attempted to sing the
next day. but found that she had lost
her voice. Physicians fear it may not
return. Ricardo escaped Injury.

On, Learned Judge.
A California judge decided that
there Ib no judicial authority to keep
a man from making love to his wife,
although it could stop his beating her.
Tbe remarkable cause of this remark
able decision was that a woman in
Los Angeles had applied for an injunc

sisting on being attentive to her. This
judge was not a Solomon, but he real

Doctor Was Fooied by His Own Casa
For a Time.
It's easy to understand how ordi
nary people get fooled by coffee when
doctors themselves sometimes forget
the facts.
A physician speaks of his own expe
“I had used coffee for years and really
did not exactly believe it was injuring ^
me although I had palpitation of the
heart every day. < Tea contains caf

and is ju&t as harmful as coffee.)
“Finally one day a severe and al
most fatal attack of henrt trouble
frightened me and I gave up both tea
and coffee, using Postum instead, and
since that time I have had absolutely
no heart palpitation except on one or
two occasions when I tried a small
quantity of coffee,which caused severe
irritation and proved to me 1 must let
It alone.
“When we began using Postum it
seemed weak—that was because we
did not make it according to directions
—but now we put a little bit of but

the Postum to boil full 15 minutes
which gives it the proper rich flavor
and the deep brown color.
“I have advised a great many of
my friends and patients to leave off
coffee and drink Postum, in fact 1 daily
give this advice.” Name given by
Postum Co., Battle Creek. Mich.
Many thousands of physicians use
Postum in place of tea and coffee in
their own homes and prescribe it to
