AMERICAN TROOPS WILL HOT

Washington, June 20. The Ameri American
can American note was handed to Eliseo Arre-
dondo, Mexican ambassador designate
this morning. It flatly rejects Car
jranza's demand for the withdrawa
of United States troops from Mexico
The note rebukes the Carranza gov
ernment for the discourteous tone and
temper of its last communication.
LONG LIST OF OUTRAGES
The long continued outrages
against American citizens are taken
up and reviewed.
TROOPS WILL STAY
The note declares the American
troops will be kept in Mexico unti
the de facto government performs
its duty of pursuing bandits who
ought to be arrested and punished by
tne Mexican government.
IF THIS MEANS WAR, MAKE
THE WORST OF IT
The communication concludes with
the statement that if the de facto
government continues to ignore this
obligation and carries out its threat
to appeal to arms against the Amer
ican troops, the gravest consequences
"While this government would
deeply regret such a result," says the
note, "it cannot recede from the set
tied determination to maintain its na national
tional national rights and perform its full duty
in preventing a further invasion of
the territory of the United States
and in removing the peril which
American residents along the inter
national border have borne so long
with patience and forbearance."
RECOUNTING BORDER RAIDS
The note recounts several typical
border raids declaring that Carranza
adherents and even Carranza soldiers
took part in looting, burning and kill
Requests that Carranza stop the
laids failed to bring results. The ban
dits enjoyed the freedom of the towns.
They even received, according to ad
vices, protection, encouragement and
aid from the de facto government.

the note, the perpetrators of which

punish the United States had no other
recourse than to employ force to dis disperse

CARRANZA A STICKLER
The necessity for immediate action
caused American troops to cross the
border without permission. Carranza

E THE WORST OP IT
T AT A MEET-
At an informal meeting Monday
night of a number of representative
men' from the city and county plans
were discussed for the proposed bond
issue for permanent roads. The con
sensus of opinion was that the senti
ment of the people of the county
should first be sounded, and that, the
sentiment being favorable, an elec election
tion election should be called by the county
commissioners. With an election call
ed, t le plan is to give the people
some iling defienite ; to vote upon.
Figures will be prepared to show just
what effect the- bond issue will have
on taxes, it being believed that the
issue will bring about no increase in
taxes, but rather tend to decrease
them. A competent engineer .will be
employed .to prepare specifications
and supervise construction. Every
section of the county will be provided
with a road. Bids will be called for,
and the contracts for construction
awarded subject to the vote of the
people. The people will know, there
fore, just how the bond money will
be spent, where it will be spent, and
under whose direction, and will be
able to vote accordingly.
A committee consisting of L. W.
Duval, Jake Brown and D. E. Mclver
will appear before the Marion qounty
democratic executive committee when
it meets in Ocala on Saturday, June
24, and will ask the committeeman
from each precinct to arrange for a
meeting of the people in that precinct
for the purpose of getting at the
sentiment with regard to the proposed
bonds. Each precinct will be asked
to send three delegates to a meeting
in Ocala about the middle of Jul v.
instructed to express themselves for
or against bonds; the people of the
precinct having in the meantime
been supplied with figures showing
how the taxes will be affected, and
with a map showing proposed roads.
A dinner, or barbecue, will be given

this city, which will be held at the
fair grounds. At the meeting the

W. D. Cam, chairman of the county

night thought would be the best to

SECRET OF A FLOWER.
How Did the Trumpet Vine .Discover
the Bared Stump?
If some one advanced the theory that
this plant had some unknown power
of reasoning you would probably reply
that "plants can't reason because they
have no mind." You may change your
opinion after you hear this story,
related by Royal Bixon, who writes
entertainingly about how near like hu human
man human beings In their actions plants are.
" The story is about a trumpet vine,
the favorite of many an old fashioned
garden. About twenty feet from where
it grew was an old pine stump with
the bark on. One day a fire was built
about the foot of the stump, and the
bark was burned off.
Immediately the trumpet vine sent
forth a long trailer across the garden
to the stump. It raised the tendrils,
felt the. smooth surface of the stump
and started to climb. Before long the
whole blackened surface was hidden
beneath the leaves and blossoms of the
With the rough bark on the stump
provided no surface for the clinging
tendrils of the vine. After the fire de destroyed
stroyed destroyed the bark the vine found a
place to climb.
How did the plant know that the
fire had prepared -the stump? "We don't

One of the most exclusive of clubs
was the X, whose last surviving mem

to comprise ten members, never got
beyond nine, because no tenth was
