Montague Tancock, With Other
Americans in Serbia, Saves
Hospital from Euin. (
How Montague Tar.ccek, son of
Dean James A. Tancock of Trinity
cathedra!, Omaha, saved the Ameri
can hospital at Skoplke, in Serbia,
from the devastating artillery fire of
the Bulgarians is told in an Asso
ciated Press dispatch sent out from
London by a correspondent there.
The firing had already commenced
when young Tancock, with two other
Americans, Logan Peters and a doc
tor named Osborne, hurried out in an
automobile and pleaded with the
enemy to spare the hospital.
Had Narrow Escapes.
"The firing came pretty close about
us before the United States flag we
had hoisted was seen," Tancock told
upon his arrival in London. "We had
any number of narrow escapes and
several times had to hunt cover. We
were agreeably surprised, however,
to find that the invading officers
were exceedingly courteous and will
ing to comply m every respect to our
requests. Though for five months
during the Bulgarian domination of
Serbia we were prisoners of war, we
have no complaint to make of our
All Arrive Safe in London.
Eight Americans who were prison-N
ers with Tancock arrived witn Laoy
Paget in London a week ago,
The party included three physi
cians, each of whom originally went
to the war zone to aid in the work of
the American sanitary commission
under the direction of Dr. Richard C.
Strong, Dr. A. F. Comeilius of I?e
rea, Ky.; Dr. E. D Forrest of Provi
dence, R. I., and Dr. R. V. Brokaw
of New York. Four members of the
original Columbia university relief
expediiion in the party, were; Mon
tague Tancock ci Omaha G. B. Lo
gan and Duce Peters of New York
and Webster W. Eaton of Columbia,
O. Also returning to London was
Miss Roberta Parsons, a nurse from
Lima, O., who left London with the
English unit last May.
Left Last February.
Tim Americans were finally allowed to
leave flknplke, February 17, after which
they nere hr.hl prisoners three weeks
longer at Sofia before being permitted
to depart for ICnglani by way of Itou
manla, Russia and Sweden. Miss I'ar
sona bad been 11! for three weeks before
the order of release for the party was
received and was removed the first
eighty miles of the Journey from flkoplke
on a atretcher In an ambulance. She In
tends to return to Serbia with the Kna
ilsh unit after a time.
"We were nursing the Serbian war v1o
llme and members of the civil population
In tho large honpltal of 750 beds main
tained by the' Berblan relief fund at
Bkoplke when the Bulgarians took the
place on October 22, lHst," said Miss Psr
aons. "The members of the large Turk
Isli population, on seeing that the Bul
garian! were coming In triumphantly,
took the guns of the Serbian wounded
and shot down Serbian soldiers. After
the Bulgarians took the town we con
tinued our work es prisoners, but about
he only difference waa that Instead of
treating only Serbians we turned our at
tention also to a large number of Bul
gars and Austrlana as well, the Bul
garians permitting u to continue our at
tention to the Serbians aa well.
Queen Visits Lady Paget.
"On the whole, we found that the Bul
larfans treated us with the greateat con
sideration, seeming to pay a great denl
of attention to English public opinion.
On being transferred to Hofla the queen
paid several visits to Lady Paget and In
quired ss to the welfare of ui at our ho
tl. We were given a special train that
took u right through Roumanla, and
Russia, to Stockholm."
Duce Peters of New York told how the
resources of the Columbia relief expedi
tion, Including their twonty-flve motor
ran, were promptly absorbed by the
Serbian army, the equipment coming aa
a Kreat boon to the hard-pressed vet
erans. The twenty-five Serbian Inter
preters sent by Prof. Pupln and the other
m-gn Miners of the expedition were
romptly drafted Into the army. The

Border Country is
Full of Rumors
Of Many "Raids
Deining. N. M.. May 15. A re
port that the American border patrol
was fired on last night by Mexicans
operating in superior numbers south
of the line at Antelope Wells, and
that the Americans were obliKed to
back up, caused much excitement at
Hachita, N. M., today. Several fami
lies already have been brought in by
cattlemen. The report has not been
officially veri'ied.
K! Paso, Tex., Hay 15. Private
messages received here tonight from
Sierra Blunca, Tex., said that reports
had been received there that a force
of Mexicans were marching on the
town. Sierra Hlanca is about JlOO
miles east of F.I l'aso and approxi
mately thirty miles from the border.
No verification was obtainable.
Marathon, Tex,, May 15. An
other raid into American territory by
Mexican bandits waa made Friday
night at McKinney Springs ranch,
sixty-seven miles south of Marathon
and twenty-three miles north of Ho
(iullas along the Marathon-Bon,uillas
road, according to II. F.. Stafford, an
attorney of F.l Paso. Mr. Stafford ar
rived here late this evening from llo
quillas to which place he had accom
panied Major Langhorne last Satur
day as a guide. There was no shoot

In the Nebraska slate meet at Lincoln,
Coach Mulligan is devoting his time

Omaha had an easier time taking first
honors In the state meet than many of

supposed to hsve been weak In the

Frank Hoxey, Wizard, Discovers
Pistols. Knives and Keys in
"Adequate's" Pockets.
Trank Hoxey is an enterprising sales
man, whisc line ronsistu principally of
disinfectants and germicides, which he
sella exclusively to Jails. l'or fifteen
years before entering the disinfectant
business, he was a prominent figure In
the sIsko world, as a magician and
slclght-of-hand performer. Omahana will
remember him by reason of his vaude
ville tours, and more recently, the sen
sational bits of entertainment he offered
during the convention of the National
Sheriffs' association here four years ago.
"Adequate'' is n little weasened Third
ward agubond negro, who at present la
sojourning for a "dniiblv-thlrty" In the
rourity Jail, having felt the combined
weight of justice as administered by
Magistrate Kosier end the patrolman on
the beat, both of whom reached the sim
ultaneous conclusion that It waa time
for "Adequate" to go to work or jail
Knler Mr. limey.
Hoiey appeared at the Jail to sell dis
infectants. "Adequate," now a trusty,
gave him only a passing glance.
Pretty soon Hoxey, to be a good fel
low with thn sheriff and deputise who
pass on the merits of his goods, com
menced lo enterlalu them wllh cards,
dice, coin and oihcr tricks of sorcery.
"Adequate" approached Just In time to
be vlctlmlr.ed.
"Now, Mr. Pherirf. this fellow here la
r ntemplatlng a Jail delivery!" suddenly
exclaimed Hoxey, seizing "Adequate."
"Go 'long, w'lte folks! to' awl's weak
in de held!"
Hoxey Jammed an empty hand Into
'Adequate s" bosom and came forlh with
a revolver He fished again and found
a bunch of jail keys. Once more and
he had a wicked clasp-knife. Another
giasp and he pulled a pistol out of the
now thoroughly frightened negro's waist
band. "Oh man dawd! Mletah Thill Do'n
put me In de da'k hole! Ah do'n know
wha dls y'er w'lte man got dam wep
plna. Ah nev'r have a rarah sence dat
time wld niggety Wllklns!" roared the
victim of the wlsard's wiles.
"Adeqiiale's" misery was so genuine
and pal hetlo the deputies didn't have
the heart to tease him further,
"All right." .Mrghane promised, "We'll
let you go this time, but rememlier, we've
got you spottsd es a had antor."
"Adequate" shuffled hurriedly away,
and when he got around the corner, com
menced to search himself vigorously, and
muttering perplexed exclamations.

The receipt of the German reply to President Wilson's demand that Ger
many "immediately declare and effect an abandonment of its present methods
of submarine warfare against passenger and freight carrying vessels" has
aroused a storm of diverse opinion in this country. Many interpretations are
given by newspaper editors.
In THE LITERARY DIGEST for May 13, 1916. there is a complete pre
sentation of American newspaper opinion of every shade upon this very import
ant document, and it ranges all the way from the New York Herald's statements
that the answer is "insulting" and "dishonest, " and "its attempted cleverness
is mere chicanery to the opinion of the New York Evening Mail, which hails the
reply as "a great victory for President Wilson," and asserts thatthe answer
means that "every merchantman that sails the seas is now as safe as if the
submarine had never been invented. " ,
. Scores of representative papers, however, repudiate the idea that Germany
should bargain with the American Government over the destruction of Ameri
can lives.
