STRENGTH OF MEXICO
We clip the following from the al-1

According to recent and rather
authentic reports on military condi conditions
tions conditions in Mexico the combined
strength of all men under arms in
the republic does not exceed eighty-
three thousand. That estimate is
far short of the claims of Huerta and
of the constitutionalists. Huerta
boasts an army of eighty thousand
and in moments of high imagination
when his heart is merry with wine,
he raises the figure to a hundred and
fifty thousand. Carranza and Villa
have been scarcely less elastic in
reckoning their own forces; some
times they have claimed fifty thou

and transmitted by them to the
state department shows that Heurta
has about forty thousand soldiers on
whom he can depend, while the
leaders of the revolution command
approximately forty-three thousand.
The latter include not only the
troops of Villa and Carranza but all
the Zapatistas, the Pueblo Indians
who are in revolt, and divers revolu revolutionary
tionary revolutionary bands in the far south that
have no connection with the consti constitutionalist
tutionalist constitutionalist movement.
These forces are scattered through
the country, for the most part in
small detachments and with scant
means for mobilization. In Mexico
City and its environs, Huerta has
some fifty-five hundred armed men.
In northern Mexico, the constitu
tionalists have forces ranging from
one hundred to six thousand. Huer-
ta's garrisons in that territory have
been almost wiped out. He has re
cently suffered disastrous losses at
Torreon and San Pedro, and the
constitutionalists paid heavily for
their victories. It is doubtful, in indeed,

I had no faith I should find her
there, but I fought my way through to
the tent. It had been knocked half
over, the camp stove overturned, the
long bench smashed into kindling
wood. With sinking heart I flung
back the sagging canvas, and cast one
glance within. As heaven witnesses,
she stood there, the blanket still
wrapped about her, her hands grasp grasping
ing grasping a rifle, her face turned toward
me. Unconsciously her lips gave ut utterance
terance utterance to a cry of relief, and her ex expression
pression expression changed. I sprang forward,
"Rene, you are here!" I cried out.
"Why did you stay?"
"It was the word of monsieur," she
answered simply. "Monsieur said stay
till he come."
"Yes, yes, I know; but I never
thought of this; never dreamed of
such a defeat. But there is no time to
waste in talk. There is nothing to do
but run for it now. Come, lass!"
Before she realized what I was go going
ing going to do, I had flung away my rifle
and seized her In my arms. She was
a light, slender thing, and I held her
tight in the folds of the blanket,
scarcely feeling her weight. She made
no effort to resist, y etcher eyes be bewildered,
wildered, bewildered, half-frightened looked into
my face. I gave them no heed, my
whole purpose concentrated on the one
effort to save her, to .fight a passage
through that mob of frightened men.
The spirit of panic had gripped me
also not for myself, but for her!
Here was my duty now; not back yon yonder
der yonder where those regulars stood grimly
In line, and died with their shoulders
touching; not where I had fought all
day in the powder-cloud facing those
forest demons but in the mob of fu fugitives,
gitives, fugitives, battling and cursing for their
lives. The road was littered with guns
thrown away, with discarded blankets
and powder horns I dared not took
back, straining every muscle, stagger staggering
ing staggering forward over the ruta. The roar
of guns behind grew faint in the dis distance;
tance; distance; the spit of rifles from the
thickets ceased. Exhausted, breath breathless,
less, breathless, reeling from fatigue, I put her
down, and, with arm -bout her, stood
an instant looking back.
They were coming, a dark mass
bearing down upon us, but ahead of
them, wild with terror, his harness
flapping at his heels, his head flung
from side to side, charged an artillery
horse full tilt. In his mad terror he
saw and knew nothing. He came
straight at us, running as if crazed.
I flung the girl into the side of the
road and leaped recklessly for his
head. My hand gripped the mane,
then the leather rein; I was flung
from my feet, jerked into the air, but
hung; my moccasins touched ground
again. I was dragged forward, ren rendered

weight told. I got fingers on his nos nostrils,
trils, nostrils, and he stood still, panting and
trembling. Clinging to him, warned
by shouts to hurry, I stripped the har harness

back. Even as this was accomplished
the head of that shrieking mob was on
us; one brute grabbed her by the arm
seeking to pull her down, and I struck
him with all the force I had. Then I
ran forward, clasping the horse by the
bit. crunching our war. heedless of
who opposed or blocked our passage.
And they made way for us; even in
their blind terror, they swept aside
to escape being trampled under the
animal's hoofs, and left before us a
I looked eagerly for some place in
which to turn aside, saw the faint
trace of an Indian trail, seemingly
leading down the bank of the stream,
and, with instant decision, turned into
it. I walked the horse now, and Rene
sat up straight, and fastened her dis disarranged
arranged disarranged hair. The narrow trail led
through dense thickets and about a
slight hill; in five minutes we were
out of sight of the road, alone in the
wilderness. To the right through
trees was. the glimmer of the river.
The horse panted heavily, and the way
was rough. There was blood I noticed
now, on his Cank, and he limped slight slightly
ly slightly as be walked. I staggered and
reeled from weariness, feeling reac reaction

on until we must have covered two
miles, wandering in and out among the
low hills. No sounds reaohed us, and

promising concealment, I released my
grasp on the bit and staggered back
against the bank. Mademoiselle
slipped from her seat and hastened to
"You are worn out, monsieur,
"Worn out, yet, but nothing has
touched me save a blow or two. I I
think we can rest now."
Then it occurred to me, a thought
that had swept into my mind once
before we had no provisions, no
cnance to get away ana we dare not
shoot, nor build a fire.
"What is it, monsieur?" ;
"Why, we have nothing to eat,
Rene," I admitted reluctantly. "It is
a long journey to the Ohia, and how
are we to keep from starving? Faith!
but I am near that now."
She stood before me, slender, erect,
the blanket draped about her, her eyes

all the most ordinary thing In the
world. "I knew ,not what would hap happen,

the women ran away, and I would not

it would be best that I take some. You
do not blame me, monsieur?''
"Blame! you are a jewel; but I see
nothing of it! Where

I please you."
She flung aside the blanket, drop dropping

black ammunition bag strapped across
her shoulder. I remembered now feel feeling

I Staggered and Reeled From Weari
vaguely wondering what it was. She
unclasped and opened it.
"Monsieur must eat," she said grave
ly, "and sleep. Then he will be strong
I tried to do as she said, munching
a few mouth'fuls. Her actions, her
words, her manner toward me, both
bewildered and angered. She had as
sumed the part of a servant chosen
it, as if she would thus teach me my
own place. In every possible way she
showed me she was not there from
choice, but necessity. I lay back, toy
ing with the food, my appetite gone.
The wounded horse had been down to
the river and drank; now he was paw
ing the snow in an effort to discover
feed. Over in the east, but some dis
tance off, a rifle cracked ominously in
the silence. My head fell back against
the bank, and I was sound asleep.
It was two days later when we toiled
up a long hill, and came out upon the
summit. I no longer needed to lead
the horse, and was plodding along
wearily behind. Much of the snow
had melted, leaving the soil soft, and
the trees appeared bare, phantom-like.
against the sky. Rene rode silently,
wrapped in her blanket, for the air
was chill and damp, her head bent,
her eyes straight ahead. I have no
remembrance that we had spoken for
p.n hour. Beyond the hill summit
there was an escarpment of rock, giv
ing an open view -ahead. As I gazed
off, over the trees below, my heart
gave a great bound there, scarce a
mile away, flowing between leagues of
forest, was the broad Ohio, its waters
silvery in the sun. I turned to her
"At last, Rene," I cried, forgetting.
"We are safe now; see! There is the
She lifted her eyes and looked.
"Why do you ever speak to me in
that tone? You answer me always as
if you were my servant."
Your servant!" She was looking at
me now. "Am I not, monsieur?"
"Of course you are not. You are
free; whatever put that in your head?
I haven't known what to think, what
to do since we have been together.
Back on the Maumee I I thought you
"I do love you, monsieur."
. "You you love me," I stammered
"And yet bear yourself as you do?"
"Yes, monsieur; how else could
do? You are white; I am an Indian.'
"Is that all! You think that makes
it different? Rene, I love you; out
yonder is my home; I would take you
there; I would say to those who know
me here is my wife."
"Your your wife!" There was
doubt, questioning in her eyes.
"Yes, of course; how could you

How could I believe? I was an Indian
