It was a strange looking army
that left Bermejillo, General Villa's
base, on that Sunday afternoon
which made history in northern Mex Mexico.

hatted high-hatted vagabonds in command of a
glorified brigand, moved down the
Mexican National railroad track to
the attack on Torreon's outlying
towns. The flankers of Generals
Benavides and Herrera spread out
for miles on each side of the track.
A troop train carried the artillery,
and the white enameled hospital
train brought up the rear.
y -Villa himself, his suede uniform
discarded for the bandit garb his men
loved so well, rode at the head of
the line on his pinto pony, grinning
through his snaggled teeth and shout shouting
ing shouting maledictions in Spanish to the
mules of the supply train, or stopping
to give a sandalclad peon soldier a
light from his corn husk cigarette.
Off to the south was Gomez Pal Pal-acio,

that squat, adobe town was the
Mountain of the Cross, which mark marked

in the north Torreon.
Fear to Light Fires
At sunset they squatted beside the
mesquite brush of the desert and
munched their tortillas, fearing to
light fires, for the attack was to be
at night and without warning.
Rifle magazines were crammed full
of cartridges, ammunition belts
which girded the men two, three and
even four times were inspected and
filled from long boxes having a red
"W" stamped on them, the inevit inevitable

federal fighters squatted behind a
great corral made of sun-dried brick.
Five machine guns were mounted on
the wall. General Benavides rode
at this wall with his trim .brave Za Za-ragosa

with its ranks cut to pieces and more

And thi3 is how it was: Confident
that the federals would flee, as they
had done at Juarez, Chihuahua, and
at Ojinaga, the rebels, old men,
boys, soldiers of fortune from for foreign
eign foreign lands and even ammunition ammunition-belted
belted ammunition-belted women, had rushed the Brit Brit-tingham

ed boomed behind them, the machine guns,
dead ahead, clucked their cackle of
death, and the rifles spat viciously
in the loopholes of the corral.
From Sierra de la Pila, the moun mountain

cio Palacio to the west, the federal cannon
dropped their bursting sharpnel
shells among the rebel troops with
a deadly hail of bullets.
A little group of outriders gained
an adobe house squatting on the
edge of the town like a great loaf of
brown sugar. A federal gunner
found the range and dropped a shell
through the thatched roof of the
house, and the dry, powdered dust
flew in the air like an exploding
mine. Not a man came out of that
A flanking attack was tried by the
rebel cavalry under Maximo Garcia
They shot out from the right of the
column, the hats of the vaqueros fly flying

as they galloped and the tricolor of
their flag snapping in the breeze.
Again Finds Range
Again the graduate gunner on old
Mount Pila caught their range and
dropped shell after shell at their
horV noses. Riderless ponies
vert wild and continued the charge.
The rebel infantry charged and re recharged

to plead with dapper, little General
Angeles to bring up the artillery,
rode back to the firing line in a

The rout was stopped, but the rat-
i tie of rifles continued from the cor-
ral, and charge after charge which
left men three deep in front of the
dun-colored building failed to drive

General Maximo Garcia had been
killed in the cavalry charge, Gener General
al General Trinidad Rodriguez had been
wounded and Raoul Madero, brother
of the martyred president, had been
injured when his horse had been
shot from under him.

Redmond Pleads and Iacifiee
John E. Redmond, the leader of
the fight for home rule, told the
house of commons that "the country

A 45-acre field of watermelons at

rich and had not been in cultivation
for several years and great results
Mr. Green, who is as well posted
as any man in the country on the
vegetable crops of the state, says
there are 800 acres or more of toma
toes around Anthony alone, that they
are looking well and growing rapid

the first planting to take out plants
and replant in places where plants
are missing, thus giving a good stand
in the fields.
The cantaloupe acreage around
Anthony is not less than 1000 acres
and everything considered the fields
look good and the plants are com

A summary of the conditions o

it will not be very late and while

large and vigorous plants are com

Since the market was painted, the

their stalls, ice boxes, etc. There is
very little improvement in Heintz's

fifcgers. It proved deep and ragged
enough, but nad penetrated nothing
vital. If I could staunch the flow of
blood, and bind it up so as to prevent
its being reopened, there should be
no serious result. I went at this as
best I could In the dark, and, by sense
of touch, groaning at the pain,
swabbed out the wound until it prac
tically ceased to bleed, and then bound
it up with a silk neckerchief and
strip torn from my 6hlrt. It was rude
surgery, but effective. Shut out thus
from the air the wound merely dully
ached, and I found myself able to
move with much greater freedom. Oth
erwise I was surprised to discover

I got to my hands and knees, deter

tion was better than merely to lie
there inert. I had to creep forward
and found barely room for the passage
of my body. My wound still hurt suf
ficiently to make me cautious of every
movement, and consequently my ad
vance was slow. There never was
blacker darkness ; it "was like a weight
pressing me back, and the silence was
like that of the grave. I could hear
my own breathing, but my hands and
knees made no sound on the earth
floor. Whatever of savage fury was
occurring above, no echo found way to
where I burrowed below. To all ap appearance

line; at least I could discover no evi

constructed it, then he must have
known something of engineering, and
been in possession of instruments. The
work could not have been done by
blind digging. Still, it might have been
originally an open ditch, banked and
lined with timber, and then covered
and the earth tamped down.
I stopped to rest a moment, sitting
cross-legged, my bead barely escaping
the roof. Suddenly from out that in
tense darkness before me, came a pe peculiar

silence, and the contracted walls,
could not tell whether it was cough
or groan, grsff exclamation or growl.
Perspiration beaded my forehead, my
hands like ice, as I stared ahead lis

movement. Could I have dreamed the

fever of my wound? No! Surely not;
I was sane enough; my ears were not
