An Associated Press dispatch from
Mexico City, under date of February
9th, says: President Francisco Ma
dero, with his ministers and a strong
detachment of loyal troops, is forti
fied in the national palace tonight,
while General Felix Diaz, with a large
majority of the regulars behind him,
has nractical control of tho capital.
In several bloody encounters today
tho president and his supporters suc
ceeded in defending themselves
against tbe rebels, and notwithstand
ing the fact that the troops in large
numbers are in a state of revolt
which carried all before them today,
there was an appearance of genuine
optimism at the palace among Ma
dero and ministers.
To all parts of the republic, Ma
dero telegraphed reassuring news
which' he and his cabinet seemed to
believe. The state governors and
military commanders were assured
of the loyalty of the army and that
tranquility had been restored.
When the army rose in revolt it
took possession of tho public build
ings, shot down federal adherents in
the streets, released General Felix
Diaz, leader of the Vera' Cruz revolt,
from prison, and, falling into line
under his banner, practically cap
tured the Mexican capital.
Madero and members of his cabi
net took refuge in the "national
palace, where they were besieged,
but, with spine loyal troops at their
back, succeeded in defending the
palace from the assault of the revolu
tionists. Madero's family has taken refuge
in the Japanese legation.
General Diaz, who is the nephew
of the deposed president, Porfirio
Diaz, now is at tho head of a ma
jority of the capital troops, includ
ing most of the artillery, and is in
possession of the arsenal in the city
and the powder works nearby.
Madero is relying on tho loyalty
of General Blanquet, who has been
summoned from Toluca, forty miles
distant, but Blanquet has only a
thousand men under his command
and the rebels are confident of de
feating him, should ho refuse to
join the revolt.
Other Mexico City dispatches fol
low: From his headquarters in the
arsenal Diaz sent a message tonight
to Madero demanding his resignation
and surrender. The president de
clined to accede to this demand.
President Madero and his minis
ters left the national palace about
10 o'clock tonight. It is believed
they have gone to Chapultepec.
General Huerta has been left In
charge of the loyal force In the
General Angeles from Curnevaca
and Colonel Vasconceles from Chal
co have been ordered to the capital.
General Blanquet had not arrived
her at 10 p. m.
Following aro Associated Press
dispatches: Laredo, Tex, Feb. 10.
One thousand more rurales havo
gone over to tho rebel forces at
Mexico City, according to a dispatch
received hero tonight. Tho dispatch
also says that General Diaz and
General Mondragon aro fortified in
La Ciudad La, a powder and arms
factory, situated in tho suburbs of
tho national capital.
Mexico City, Feb. 10. President
Francisco I. Madero is back in tho
national palace and Senora Madero
is in Chapultepec castle. Tho presi
dent's brief disappearance from the
palaco caused a rumor that he had
taken to flight, but it appears that
ho was absent only a short time and
since then has been spending his
time in conferring with General
Huerta, Ernesto Madero, the minis
ter of finance, and other ministers.
Madero is confident that the gov
ernment will triumph, and his con
versation is characterized by opti
mistic allusion delivered with a
happy smile. Ho considers' that tho
public is with the administration and
looks forward to developments to
morrow as tho final act in what ho
regards as anothor foolhardy attempt
of General Porfirio Diaz' nephew to
place the family namo at tho head
of Mexico's ofllcial list.

The staggering effects of the news

uatarrn is a (mease or tnc mucous memurane. it is
characterized by a discharge through the nostrils or in
to the throat. It usually begins with a cold in the head.
Beginning in the nostrils it spreads to all the mucous
membranes of the body, even getting into the stomach
and lungs. The nasty discharge being swallowed, it up
sets the stomach, and from the stomach it is taken into
the blood, and poisons and deranges the whole body.
The disease is all the time inclined to work its way
from the nose back into the head down into the throat
into the bronchial tubes and lungs. Herein is its
Dr. Blosser's Discovery
While engaged in the general practice of medicine
Dr. Blosser had many patients suffering from Catarrh
whom he was unable to cure, although he prescribed
for themby the rules taught in medical books and col-
1 leges. He saw that the methods of treatment were
wrong, and reasoned that as Catarrh is produced by
breathing cold and damp air, so it should be cured by
breathing a warm medicated vapor.
After nine years of investigation he discovered a
combination of healing herbs, leaves and flowers (con
taining no tobacco or habit-forming drugs) which,
when placed in an ordinary clean pipe made into
medicated cigarettes or burned on a plate and by
drawing the medicated smoke Into the mouth and in
haling into the lungs, or by sending it out through ttie
nostrils in a perfectly natural way, would speedily re
lieve all catarrhal diseases. As shown in the accom
panying illustration the warm, healing vapor is carried
directly to the very parts affected. This remedy fights
and kills Catarrh where liquids, sprays, douches, salves
and medicated creams cannot possibly go. It It a most
reliable treatment, and is so simple ana convenient that
it can be used at home by man, woman or child.
