Rtiss Legions Again Approach
,'r- Passes of Carpathian Mountains
' London, June 24. Tonight's Rus-sjan statement confirms what already
had been learned from Austrian admissions, that the Russians are over
running Bukowina and are making a dash for the passes of the Carpathians
as they did eighteen months ago, when they reached Kirklibaba pass, over
looking Austrian Transylvania. A report frbm Bucharest states that the
Russians have taken possession of two railways leading from Roumana into
Bukowina. V -. , ' .
By means of forced marches along the Roumanian, frontier, the Rus
sians have reached, .the extreme south of Bukowina. And. at Kuty on the
north and Gu'ra .Humora on the south have approached the thickly forested
spurs ot the Carpathian mountains. - !
. The Russians in their pursuit of the Austrians thus far have crossed
four riyers-rtlie Dniester, Pruth, Sereth and Suczava.
Two Troops of Tenth Cavalry Vir
tually Exterminated When De
- Factos Treacherously Attack.
LITTLE BAND IS SURROUNDED
San Antonio, Tex, June 24. The
two troops of the Tenth cavalry
under Captain Charles T. Boyd were
practically wiped out by the attack
uf Mexican .forces, . under General
Gomel at Carrizal June 21, according
to indications given in fragmentary
reports received by General Funston
from. General Pershing tonight. .
General Pershing's message stated
that seven survivors in all, including
those who arrived last night, have
reached the main column. All were
enlisted men,, but the report did not
say whether there were any noncom
missioned officers among them.
Charge From Flank.
'According to the stories of the sur
vivors, as outlined in General Persh
ing's report, a mounted force of Mexi
cans made a charge from the flank
a. the conclusion o a parley between
Captain. Boyd and General Gomez at
the same time that a machine gun
opened fire from the front as General
Gomez reached his lines.
Captain Boyd had ordered his men
to dismount as the machine gun
opened fire and" the combined effect
of .the-Mexican charge, the machine
gun fire and the rifle fire from the
Mexican garrison of Carrizal, which
had- almost ' surrounded the little
American force under, cover of the
parley sought, by General Gomez to
discuss Whether Captain Boyd should
be allowed to passithrough the town,
stampeded the horses. No details were
made known to General Pershing as
to whether the Mexican charge was
Their Fate Sealed.
With : their mounts gone, caught
withput meansof. escaping, ringed
about on three" 'sides' with the fire
ol an overwhelming force, the iate of
the little detachment is believed by of
ficers here to have been sealed. It is
declared that only the most stupend
ous effort backed by desperate valor,
could have extracted Captain Boyd's
men from the trap. '
The reports from Mexican forces
place. the number killed, including two
officer at from twelve to forty. It is
reported seventeen were taken captive
into Chihuahua City.
The accepted percentage of wound
ed to those killed in modern war
fare would place the wounded at from
thirty-five to forty at the lowest esti
mate. Not Oyer 130 Men.
The strength of the two troops is
not known here, but it is estimated
that they could not exceed 130 men,
allowing , for those sick and on de
tached service. With but seven sur
vivors reported as arrivng at the main
column, the number of those ac
counted for at least speculatively is
pitifully small. '
The report from General Pershing
stated that the stories of the survivors
were confused and did not conform
in all details with the reports made
by the first arrivals from the battle
field. General Pershing reported that
there was a scene of wild confusion
when the Mexican opened fire and
their cavalry charged.
The stragglers apparently were cut
off in an effort of Captain Boyd to
extricate his men from the jaws of
the trap which was closing on his
command, or fled before he outcome
of the battle could be learned. Gen
eral Pershing; according to reports,
has received no reports from the two
.battalions of the Eleventh cavalry
which he sent to rescue the remnants
of Captain Boyd's j expedition. He
stated that he had taken no measures
to. support the. squadrons of the
General Funston said tonight that
he had received no news regarding a
report that General Bell had crossed
the border at El Paso and that no
confirmation had beert received of
rumors of reported andit raids near
Hachitaj-N. M., and Brownsville.'

That eastern Nebraska is cspecfal
ly adapted to grape-growing, is point
ed out by Albert IClVwi's, president
of the Omaha Fruit Growers' asso
ciation, in a discussion of sonic points
in regard to growing grapes.
Mr. Lewis says:
"Grapes are one of the finest fruits
grown in the state of Nebraska.
There is no better soil or climate
adapted for grape-growing than east
ern Nebraska, although it has not
been . generally known until late
years: The high priced land forced
the small farmer into fruit growing,
consequently the grape industry is
growing more each succeeding year
because of it being very productive
and one of the surest fruit crops
"The grape is a plant that requires
deep study and careful handling to
gain the best results, yet it is just
as essential to cultivate a vineyard
as it -would be to cultivate any other
growing crop to obtain the same re
sults. After the 1st of May grapes
should be cultivated once a week un
til the last of July, and every vine
hoed by hand twice in a season, be
ginning the 1st of June and the sec
ond hoeing the latter hart of July.
. Level Land Preferred.
"In painting a vineyard select t.
south slope or a' level piece of land,
the latter being preferred,' plowing
deep, and if it be of heavy clay soil
it should have a dressing of well rot
ted barnyard manure. The next will
be the variety. Speaking from experi
ence, I would choose Concord and
Moore's Early, the two standard va
rieties, which have proven good.
"Grape vines that come from a
nursery, if they are No. 1 stotk, the
rdots will be from fifteen inches to
two feet in length, tied up in bun
dles with 100 vines in each. Lay
the bundle of vines on a plank or
barn floor, take a sharp spade and
cut the roots in half yith a slant
cut. This is done so the vines will
make plenty of fiber roots. Cut the
top back to two or three buds; they
should be planted in rows north and
south, eight feet apart and six feet
in row. Planting this distance apart,
it will take about 800 per acre, de
pending on the amount of space left
for turning row. .
"One year from date of planting
trim back to two or three buds the
same as when planted. This trimming
should be done in the month of Feb
ruary or March. Second year's
grown, trim for fruit, leaving three
of the best canes; trim these to, about
two and one-half feet high; cut all
other canes to ground. Put posts to
every fourth vine and line up 'with
two wires. Trimming in this way,
the Concord will bear on an average
the first year one eight-pound basket
of fruit per .vine; second year bearing,
trim so as to cut all old wood out as
near as possible, leaving -two long
vines to reach top wire, and one or
two short ones for second vire, trim
ming in this manner will renew the
wood and keep the vineyard Up.
"The Concord grape vine, after it
is 3 years old, will . bear from one
to four eight-pound baskets of fruit
per vine as season permits."

Nuns Tell of Hatred Roused
Against Americans in Mexicol
Laredo. Tex., June 24. Traveling the entire distance in their sectarian
garb, seven Josephine sisters, in charge of Mother Superior Dolores, ar
rived here today from Mexico City, enroute to the headquarters of the
Josephine order, at Baltimore. The sisters, who have been connected with
a convent in the Mexican capital, said their train was met by infuriated
Mexican mobs at many stations, and they believe their robes saved their
Mother Dolores, a Spanish nun, declared the anti-American propa
ganda in Mexico was inflaming the lower classes against Americans, and
the government of the United States. Several Americans, she said, were
taken from the traiu at Gonzales, near San Luis Potosi, by Carrauza au
thorities. She did not know the charge against them or what was their fate.
The feeling against priests and nuns in Mexico City, Mother Dolores
declared, was being continually aroused by Mexican officials, who made
threats against them.
