General Murguia Denies
German Propaganda Is
Permitted in Mexico
Juarez, Tlex., July 7. Gen. Fran
cisco Murguia, commander of the
northeastern military zone, denied,
that Germans were being permitted
to violate Mexico's neutrality, in a
statement given the Associated Press
"There is nothing to th.esc reports
of unusual activities, among the few
German refugees in northern Mex
ico," General Murguia said. "Neither
are they being permitted to conduct a
campaign of propaganda in the
General Murguia said Villa and his
band of 30 followers had been driven
into the Durango foothills and were
no longer a factor in the north.
He said a tour of Mexico by a
delegation of American editors would
do much to reveal the true conditions.
I J By Daddy-The Beautiful Stranger
Land Where the Sun Plays.
(In a previous adventure Peggy went to
Blrdland. where shs planned the kidnaping
of the Ulant of the Woods by ths King ot
the Wild tieess and his army. The King
at that time gave her a pressing Invitation
to visit him In the far Northland.)
f SUN, you are so
wish you would stay with us
the whole night through," murmured
Peggy, leaning back in her porch
swing and looking dreamily out over
the lake where the glowing orb of day
was slowlv sinking.
Swish! Something landed on the rail
beside her! Peggy jumped upright.
The something was an excited young
Gander, a soldier of the army of the
King of the Wild Geese. In his beak
he tarried a wild flower
"Come quickly to the land where
the Sun is awake all night," he
honked, dropping the flower in her
hand. "The King of the Wild Geese
has a secret to tell you. Princess
Peggy, and sends you this Snow Drop i
from SAtta Claus land to bring you
to him. Eat7 it, and you will rind it ;
even more powerful than grass from
a fairv ring." ' j
"Oh, but it's getting dark," cried 1
-JMotint your airplane and has en j
inted the Gamier. 'If we don t :
let the Sun get away from us.
we can keep in the light until wc
reach the Day-all-night kingdom.
Peggy hesitated then cautiously b,
the head off the Snow Drop. Presto!
Air;un she was a tiny elf, and again I
her toy airplane was transformed into
a buzzing, powerful flier, which car
ried her into the air so fast the Gan
der had to chase desperately to catch
her. Up higher, she found that the
Sun, instead of sinking, seemed to be
"Why, the Sun's coming up again,"
she cried in surprise.
"No, we've travelled on the wings
of magic to th far Northland,"
honked the Gander. "Here at the top
of the earth the Sun plays in summer.
He doesn't set at night, but swings
around ami around in a circle like on
a merry go-round. He has so much
fun he can't take time to sleep, but
pops into bed and pops rrglit out
Sure enough, instead of getting
darker and darker as at home, it was
getting lighter and lighter and the
Sun was swinging higher and higher
in the sky. Peggy was so fascinated
by tliis queer sight that she was sur
prised when the Gander suddenly
"Here we are. Dive!"
Yankee Learns Not to Charge
Into a Barrage and Not to
Go Beyond Objective Set
By Associated Press.
With the British Army in France,
july 7"Hcy, Yankee, take it a bit
easy and wait for mw' You ain't
running no bloody hundred yards
dash, vou know."
The speaker was a giant Australian,
loose of limb ind with face bronzed
by years of constant exposure to the
sun. His companion was equally
sturdy, his brawn acquired on his
father's farm in a far western state.
ft was dawn of July 4, and these two,
with many others from Australia and
America, were just pushing out across
the still mist-shrouded field that
stretched away along the Sotnme
valley toward the strongholds of the
Germans, whom they were that day
to vanquish in the first Anglo-American
attack of history.
Just ahead of them was a curtain
of breaking shells from hundreds of
British guns in the rear, clearing way
for their advance, and the Yankees
were having their initial experience
with a barrage tire.
"That barrairc" continued the
Australian as he cleared a shell hole
with a living leap, landing beside his
companion, "that barrage ain't no
blinking bar to be leaned against.,
OIT on their right other men from
the United States were eagerly
pressing forward with rifles grasped
tensely and faces expectant. Out
ahead somewhere they were to have
their initiation into real warfare. They
did not know exactly what it would
be like but they were running to it
with an impetuous disregard for the
death that mtglit be waiting lor mem
Too Much Speed.
Suddenly one boy, who had passed
ahead of the others staggered back,
clutching at one arm which hung
helpless by his side. "I was just
telling you so," muttered the Austra
lian to his companion,
"Why why, it's Tom," stammered
the other with a catch in his voice.
It was the first time he had ever seen
a man hit in battle and this was one
of hi9 own pals.
"Too bad, but those things happen,"
remarked the veteran tersely.
"He can be glad he ain't dead. You
fellows have ftot to learn not to
charge into a barrage. It don't help

son in warfare as it is waged today.

From somewhere far ahead '.bri

barking and bullets came singing.

veteran said with a grin, "you fellows

Down they swooped to the edge of
a; sparkling lake, where they found
themselves in the court of the King
of the Wild Geese. The King was

a sad and dismal shadow of the dash
inp, daring air chieftain who had
helped her in the adventurous kid
naping of the Giant of the Woods,
lie cheered up as he saw her and in
stantly dismissed his court.
"Cornel" he honked to Pcfrgy, and
away he flew to a neighboring lake.
Alighting on a wild, deserted-looking
shore, he looked carefully around.
"Now I can tell you my secret."
"I'm dying to hear it," declared
The King came close and hjspered
in her ear.
"I'm in love!"
"My goodness, Js that all?" ex
claimed Peggy, much disappointed.
'"Isn't that enough?" retorted the
King. "Did you ever have the measles,

good, all right, Shorty," he replied
through clenched teeth.
The bullets kept coming in waves,
but the American did not dodge again.
On they went down the shell-torn

FAMILY TO FLEE,
Pair Also Accused. According
to Report, of Revealing to
Italians Plans of Recent
London, July 7. No light has yet
been shed on the mysterious rumors
concerning Emperor Charles and Em
press Zita, of Austria, which Dr. von
Seydler, the premier, recently found
necessary to deny when his attention
was called to them by a group of
Austrian deputies. The premier de
nounced "these base and absolutely
senseless tales" and declared that any
one caught spreading the rumors
would be punished severely.
One report circulating among cer-i
tain continental papers is that .the
royal pair is charged with revealing
the plans of the recent battle along
the piave to the Italians. Another
renort is that the emperor and em-
hiress planned to flee from Austria.
The origin of the rumors is not
given, but a theory advanced is that
the Austrian public is indignant at
Emperor Charles' peace overtures
through Prince Sixtus of Bourbon,
which was a sensation in diplomatic
circles of the central empires.
According to messages from Vien
na, the visit of the deputies to Dr. von
Seydler was preceded by a public
meeting of the Christian social party
last Sunday, which was attended by
Cardinal Piffl, archbishop of Vienna,
and where the rumors concerning
Emperor Charles and Empress Zita
were denied. The Austrian state cen
sor prohibited publication of details
of this meeting.

Vice Admiral von Capelle Teli:
Reichstag Estimates of Losses
Have Been Exaggerated
by Allies. -
Amsterdam, July 7. Submarines
are increasing in number and quality,
according to Vice Admiral von Ca-.
pelle, in the debate in the reichstag,
He said reports of losses have been
exaggerated by the allies.
Von Capclle's statement camejrre-
iponse to a reference to a report ol
the French under-secretary that two
thirds of the U-boats had been sunk
while twice the number which Ger
many is able to build also are being
"These figures are incorrect," said
Admiral von Capelle, "as is also the
recetii statement by the British min
ister 0? marine that since January last,
the number sunk exceeded construc
tion. The facts are quite the reverse.
All reports about U-boat losses spread
by the enemy are exaggerated. As far
as the number and quality of our
U-boats are concerned our weapon is
increasing in. strength.
"Many of you gentlemen recently -attended
a lecture by one of our sub
marine commanders who had just re--turned
from the barred zone. He de
scribed in detail all the defensive
measures which our enemies employ
against the U-boat His utterances
showed that our splendid U-boat
crews have stood their ground hither,
to against all these measures, and I
have every reason to believe they will
continue to do so in the future.
"Official publications by the admir
alty staff are the most reliable bases
for judging the military results of the
submarine war. If now, about 18,000
000 tons which were at the disposal,
of the enemy already have been de
stroyed, the sinking of an average of,
five big vessels is still reported daily,
this is a guarantee that the efficacy
of the submarine war remains un
altered.". Von Capelle cited the statement by
Vice Adnrral Sims that the ascending
curve op construction would loon
cut the descending curve of submarine
sinking so that the allied powers
would be fully able to replace their
"Almost simultaneously," he contin
ued, "Edward A. Filene, president of
the shipping committee or the United
States chamber of commerce, said:
'Spring of 1919 will have arrived b"S
fore our curve of shipping construc
tion cuts the curve of U-boat sink-
ings. All statements published in
! newspapers about a decrease in sink
ings are based on hopes and dreams.
"This sounds quite different; al
though Filene, as an American, cer
tainly would not say too little. I
hope that next spring, if the war con
tinues then, that his hopes will prove
to be Incorrect."
