Must Have Been Hum Marksmen
Gen. Castro and Gen. Mercado of
the federal regulars, saw that the
assault was to be nothing less than a
massacre, as the federals only had
left fifty rounds of ammunition for
each man. Generals Castro and
Mercado therefore gave the order to
evacuate. All the federal soldiers

Major McNamee immediately or-
dered all cavalrymen to meet all
emergency. Women, children and
wounded "soldiers had been crossing
in numbers but the apparent advance
of the rebels gave reason to believe
a great rush across the border was
imminent. For five hours the sharp
flashes of the rebel fire had been een
drawing closer to the federal en-
trenchments. The whole scene was
bathed in moonlight, partly on
scured by dust and powder smoke.
Almost too Many Officers
Among the federals were' nine gen generals,
erals, generals, Castro, Mersado, Orozco, Man Manuel
uel Manuel Landa, Ynez Salazar, Antonio
Rojas, Bias Orphina, Lozaro Alavis
and Roque Gomez.
Defeat of the federal army at this
point marks the most important re rebel

It leaves the rebels in possesion vir virtually

Mercado, Castro and Landa were
the only remaining commanding of
the federal regulars. The other
generals commanded volunteers and
had been threatened by Villa with
death should they be captured.

On this little hill top of Ojinaga

make a last stand.
He said he never would give up
unless his men ran short of ammu

days, ending last Sunday, he fought j
pluckily against odds. The rebels
fired more than 1,000,000 rounds in into

head of the revolution, appeared on j
the scene that the reverse came for
the federals. i
Gen.. Villa arrived only a few days
ago. His presence, together with
the coincidence that the federals had-!
only fifty rounds of ammunition left
for each man, seemed to take from
the fecjri general
their last vis

The enforcement of the law rests

HI CHEN'S HAIR NOT
WORTH THE DUTY
Washington, Jan 12.- The recent
decision of the treasury department
that a lock of hair clipped from the
head of Charles Dickens did not con constitute
stitute constitute in itself an antiquity, resulted
in its shipment back to England.
. The treasury held that although
Dickens, if living, would be more than
one hundred years old, it was clearly
evident that the lock of "hair could
not lay claim to any such age. An
antiquity, as viewed by the treasury
officials, must be at least a century
old. The Dickens relic had been sold
in London for $200.

The Star is sorrowfully obliged to
come to the conclusion that William
Randolph Hearst ..would print any
sort of a He in order to attain his
ends. His principal end seems to be
to sell papers.
A number of. years ago Hearst
sent a man to Florida to obtain
"color", for an article denouncing the
convict lease system. The man
didn't come here to investigate. He
came, to obtain information on men
and localities in order to give some
show of probability in denouncing a
system that it had already been de decided
cided decided to denounce, whether it de deserved
served deserved it or not, and not with the
desire to reform it, but to sell pa papers
pers papers or rather" magazines.
One of this emissary's tricks was
to win the confidence of certain
young men connected with a convict
camp by representing himself to
them as their friend. In this belief,
they allowed him to take a picture
of. them in a group. Said picture was
labeled ''convict guards" and was
printed injthe magazine with the ac accompanying
companying accompanying article, which called at attention
tention attention to the fact that the young
men in question were a tough-looking
set. The truth was that some of
the boys were not guards, but com commissary
missary commissary clerks, and they were all bet better
ter better men, and better looking, than the
hired liar who wrote the article.
After he story was printed, a refu refutation
tation refutation of it, containing a number of
indisputable facts, was sent to the
magazine;; but it was returned with a
lot of objections as unfair as the
article that caused it.
There is reason to believe that
most of the sensational articles that
appear in the Hearst papers and
magazines have no better foundation.
They appeal to ignorance and pre prejudice
judice prejudice and disgust moderate and well
For the last three years, the
Hearst papers have been printing
the most terrible stories about Mex Mexico,
ico, Mexico, and the treatment of Americans
in that country. If these stories
were true, or if they had been be believed
lieved believed on this side of the line, they
would have caused war months ago.
The latest! is a story in the Cosmo Cosmopolitan;
politan; Cosmopolitan; for February. It is of an
American, his wife and little son in
Mexico, and winds up with the
butchery of the man and child and
the abandonment of the woman to
worse than death at the hands of a
Mexican official and his men.
Of course, nothing of the sort ever
took place; and a man who would
write or publish anything of the
sort as an incentive to drawing his
country into war, is as bad as any
man who plots murder against any
of his fellow citizens.
It is said that Hearst has large
property interests in Mexico, and is
trying to bring on war because under
American control his property would
be more valuable. Whether this be
true of not, its best for everyone

with bliss was mellow, and you
might search throughout the town,

The lawyer owns my stately nome,
and there he lives in splendor, while
up and down the world I roam, in
search of legal tender. He sits at
evening on my porch and rests in my
old rocker, and smokes in peace a

with me, upon my bootless journey;

A year ago, though mighty fat, no

Walk every day, and do it hard, if

out of town, in country lanes, and

He gave me pills, this good ad advice,

when he announced his price, Jhree

We entered first the fortifications of
Cabana, which occupies an elevated
site on a hill rising a hundred feet
out of the sea across the harbor from
Havana. The magnitude of Cabana
arouses one's curiosity to know
something of its past, for within its
fortifications we found ourselves In a
vast labyrinth of teeming endless
windings and turnings, thru narrow,
high walled passages and vaulted
halls, covered ways, courts, barracks,
prison cells, tree-lined roads, drill
grounds, one beyond another. We
were told by the guides that when
Spain regained possession of Havana
1763, she at once eet about
