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 here. "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 north." 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. "Bitwmland Adventure I J By Daddy-The Beautiful Stranger CHAPTER I. 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 beautiful I 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 ri ?in.j. "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 again." 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 honked: "Here we are. Dive!" NZAC TEACHES I VITAL LES Yankee Learns Not to Charge Into a Barrage and Not to Go Beyond Objective Set for Him. 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., youngster." 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 X k.l,.c T Un, tm,v vn,i feel-you want to get at 'em but tnere s time, oia son, mere s tunc -ui it." The American, fell in beside the Australian and pushed ahead thought - fully. He had had his first vital les- son in warfare as it is waged today. i , "'usl lcfl "1S "r. u it hnn, ahead too fast so that h woul, tret cautrht in that crashing line of steel. Tom just learned by burning i his fingers that fire was hot and ' other American boys were getting the same hard fact driven home to j them, strange as it might seem, that : there was such a thing as too much ! speed in rushing the enemy. i From somewhere far ahead '.bri German machine guns began their barking and bullets came singing. The western boy ducked sharply as a screaniine- nellet swished nast his eaniinir nenet swisnea past ms "You dodged that one all right, ear j j.. i. -r..i. t i. " veteran said with a grin, "you fellows are mighty quick." The American blushed under his1 ERICA SON IN WAR 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 moping on a throne of moss looking 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 Peggy eagerly. 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, mumps, whooping cough, a stubbed toe, a sore thumb, a new woolen un dershirt and the toothache all at the same time?" "No, I never did," replied Peggy. "Then you cyit appreciate how I feel," sighed the King. "I'm in a lot jj , k d miserable Peggy's hear softwith pity ..p0OI King," she said soothinR!y. .

(Answer to previous puzzle ANDES.) tan and smiled ruefully. "Oh, we are 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 slope through barbed wire-Jhat tore their legs cruelly at times. Then came the first German trench defense in a runway where several gray coats were firing with rifles at the advanc ing troops. "Hit-them, Yank, at it," yelled the Australian, and he hurled himself over the parapet. The Yankee was down among the Germans like a whirlwind, and then there began a furious lunging and parrying with the bayonets There were four Germans in that pit, great strapping fellows, with plenty of fight in them. The American was in a battle rage and he fought furiously, but with the same headwork that characterized his veteran comrade's methods. It was all over in a mo ment and the enemy lay crumpled in the ditch. The American had ac counted for two of them; he had held his own. . "Good fellow, Yank, you certainly can light," the Australian said. "But hell, man, don't never stab another boche through the chest. You'll bust your steel and there'll be the devil to pay. Get 'em in the throat." Silences Rapid Firer. Just a little distance ahead wa$ a machine gun nest and a bullet from that direction grazed the Americans cheek. It angered him. He deliber ately charged the nest and hurled a bomb among the gray coats. Another i.wi dill anntlipr hand erenade WCOt spinning into the midst of the enemy with the precision of a base ball thrown by an expert. Little spouts of earth shot up and the rapid firer was silenced. Two Germans appeared from the nearby cove-with their hands held high. "Kamerad," they cried. The American whirled and fixed his bayonet. "No, Yank, no," the Australian shouted. "The blighters are trying to surrender. Let 'cm alone. We will turn 'em over to be sent back. Pretty creatures, ain't they, these cussed sausage eaters?" tii- allied nair continued their adventurous journey and the story of tjie early moments-of their fighting was the same as that at the end. "This is where we rest," the Aus tralian asserted as he wiped the sweat from his brow and leaned against the breastwork. "But why," the American de manded, "why don't we continue? Wc could get ahead easily now. We've got the boche on the run." "I know, Yank, so we could, the Australian replied as he stared specu latively toward the east, "but Haig told me, personally, yesterday that he wanted me to stay right here.

The King burst into enthusiastic, excited verse: "Her bonk la Ilka the gurgle of a brook; I find a world of rapture In her look. My heart she's caught as If upon a hook; I'm mad as any hero In a book.' "I should say you were," agreed PeSKy- "Father says there's no hope for a boy when he starts writing mushy poetry." "There's no hope for me," cried the King, almost breaking down. "My ro mance is a tragedy." "Doesn't the Beautiful Stranger love you?" "Alas, her father is a member of a band of bandit Geese, deadly enemies of my tribe, and he has promised her in wedlock to the chieftain of the out law flock." "Oh, it's like 'Romeo and Juliet exclaimed Peggy, now all excitement over the King's love story. "But don't you go and take poison." "I'm not such a goose as that," re plied the King. "But, Princess Peggy, unless I save my beloved, my heart will break. Will you help me?" "Of course I will," promised Peggy. "Where is she?" "I do not know.

According to Report, of Revealing to Italians Plans of Recent Battle. 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. The Customer Thought He Had Cause for Complaint Recently a farmer with a fretful cast of countenance entered the gen eral store of a country town, and without pausing to chat with the oracles and prophets perched on the barrels and boxes, made straight away for the proprietor. "What seems to be the trouble this mornin', Josh?" asked the pro prietor, noticing what seemed to be trouble coming his way. "Got some thin' else to kick about?" "I don't like to kick, Sam," re sponded the farmer, "but I do wish ye'd light a lamp when ye go down, in yer cellar. That butter I got here last Tuesday turned out to be patent axle grease, an Xeel" interjected the grocery man, showing some concern. "What did it do to them summer boarders at your house?" "What did it do to them?" re sponded Josh, with a reflective sigh. "Why it lubricated their teeth and throats so derned slippery that they swallered about four dollars' worth o' high-priced grub instead o' 20 cents' worth." Philadelphia Tele graph. .

GAIN IN U-BOATS IS REPORTED HUN NAVY LEADER 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 destroyed. "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 losses. "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." Doctors Marvel at Grit 4)f American Wounded The medical ,folk salute ; the wounded from thtv fighting around Chateau Thierry, says the Stars and Stripes, official paper of the Ameri can forces in France.

Such work does not call for anaesthesia. And in all that week, there was only one outcry. That was from a man with a slight skin wound. Through the receiving room in the Red Cross Military Hospital No. 2 in Paris, 225 of the wounded passed in one night and there was not a mur mur from any of them. Onj infan tryman, who was shot through the ; abdomen, crawled into the dressing , station 27. hours after he had fallen. On the dressing, table he smoked a cigarette and talked airily of what had befallen him and told how an other doughboy had administered -first aid arid then disappeared in the shuffle. A major saw a man walking grog gily out past the point from which the litter boys were operating. He was cradling hit arms. ' "Are you wounded?" he called out to him. "I've only broken my arms" was the answer. "I caa hoof it." One infantryman was shot through both arms and both legs, breaking the bones of his thighs. He was shot in the abdomen and shot in the hip. He talked enthusiatically about the battle with the doctor who was dress ing his wounds in the field hospital. "What's this fellow got, lieuten ant?" asked some one peering over the surgeon's shoulders. "Guts," sairT the lieutenant, respectfully. Faith.
