General Pershing Does Not
Look For Early Capture
of Mexican Bandits.
Columbus, N. M., March 26 -
A speedy termination of the
American exped:.tion into Mexico;
is hooked for by General Persh
ing, commander of the forces in:
the:field, according to advices re
ceived here tonight. It is asserted
that following a staff conference

the people of the United States
should not place too much con
fidence in reports that Francisco
Villa, the factional leader, whose
command attacked this town sev
eral weeks ago, aad been bottled
up either by American forces cr
Mexican troops. The nature of
the country it was pointed out
renders it difficult for any force
to surround effectually a small
band in the wourtain passes with
almost impassable trails offering!
a means of escape.
While it- was understood that
Gen. Pershing does [not attempt
to predict the length of time
American troops may be in Mexi- I
can territory, it was intimated
that the period may extend into
Other reports also received to
day from unofficial sources, indi
cated that with (deleted) troops
in the field, American military
authorities believe a sufficient
number of men of all arms of the
service have been concentrated
at La Ascencion, Casas Grandes,
Colonia Dublan and other Ameri
can points to meet any emergen
cy that may arise. Several thous
and negro infantrymen and two
squadrons of cavalry, who have
arrived in the last few days are
to remain on station here, it was
asserted. The cavalrymen will
assist in the bor'der patrol and
the infantry will garrison Colum
Capt. Richmond Smith, in com
mand at Boca 'Grandes, reported
by wireless that his men had

authorities to cooperate with the

Several towns where Mexicans
are employed in mines have ap
pealed for protection. Among
these are Deming, Hachita, Lords
burg, Rincon. Silver City, Santa
Rita and Morenci.
General Pershing said he is
making a personal investigation
of conditions in these townis: and

which have been expressed, the
State has available for duty a
full regiment of militia and a
battery of artillery.

SOLVEO PUZZlING CASE
Shadow Lifted From Home
of Prominent Merchant.
HOPE LOST TOO SOON
Mrs. D. G. Free Regained
Health in Almost Miracu
lous Manner by Tak
A home made happy, a lift
given renewed strength and
relief from suffering which had
continued six years and which
had reduced her health almost
to that of an invalid-that is thE
result of Mrs. D. G. Free's tak.
ing Tanlac, The MasterMedicine.
According to the statement giv
en by her husband, who is pro
prietor of the D. G. Free Furni
ture Co., of 1430 Assembly St.,
Columbia. "I have spent at
least $1,000 to secure relief for
her, but Tanlac is the only medi
cine which has given her relief,'
"I sometimes believe Tanlae iZ
the medicine the Lord sent her,'
added the grateful husband. "]
shall always be glad to reccom
mend Tanlac for it is a wonder
ful medicine. I intend sending
my mother several bottles for
she needs it.
"My wife suffered terribly
with indigestion and for siN
years she was supposed to be
threatened with dropsy, of the
stomach, which caused her con
stantly increasing suffering. She
had no appetite and was con
fined to her bed the greater part
Df the time. She employed ser
vants to do all her housework.
When she began taking Tanlac,
Mrs. Free was a physical wreck,
and seemed steadily becoming
worse. Despite all that medical
science seemed able to do for
her. I was spending an average
f fifty dollars per month for
medical services for her.
"We had finally come to the
onclusion that her case was be
yond relief. I was in a despar
te frame of mind. Seeing Tan
lac so extensively recommended
for stomach troubles. She de
cided to try it and the irmme
diate i-esult was wonderfuh~
"4Mter she had-.ta!.O tvlo bot
ties, tne servants were discharg
ed, and Mrs. Free again is doing
her housework, something she
has not done in years. Her ap
etite is good now, and she
eats anything she wants, She is
regaining weight rapidly, and
her pallor has been replaced by a
rosy color. And she is in fine
"It is almost unbelievable thai
ny medicine could bring such
wonderful results; but Tanlac
aas done so in the case of Mrs.
Free, and it can not be praised
too highly. 'She is now taking
her third bottle."
Commenting on this endorse
ment, T. W. Galyon, State agent
f Tanlac, said: "Such statements
s this, telling of marvellous
reliefbrought by Tanlac, should
onvince the thoughtful of the
edicine's merits. Tanlac, which~
is a combatant of disorders. A
tonic, appetizer, and invigorant,
is what hundreds of ailing per
sons need. It seems to build up
the entire system, and creates a
healthy appetite, promotes di
gestion and assimilation of food,
vitalizes the blood and brings
back good health."..
