San Antonio, March 24. In a full re
port on the incident of Mexicans firing
on the United States troops stationed in
the "Big- Bend" country, the statement
is made that those firing the shots were
evidently laboring under a misapprehen
sion, and that no offente to the United
States was intended.
It is the opinion of Capt. Andrew E.
Williams, Third Cavalry, now stationed
at the Presidio, in command of Com
pany H. that the shots came from in
surrectos, and that the United States
troops were mistaken for Mexican troops.
He camo here in person to report to Brig.
Gen. Duncan. No one was injured.
Capt. Williams in his report to Brig.
Gen. Duncan said that the federal forces
across the ricr from the Presidio are
constantly being harassed by the retxl
forces, frequent shots being exchanged.
This information has led Gen. Duncan
to believe that the United States deputy
marshal, who forwaraed the news of an
overt act on the part of the Mexican
troops to San Antonio, was prompted
more by zeal than discreUon.
Iieut Taylor's message to Gen Dun
can said that Sergt. Long and four men
"reported to him on the 22d -that they
had been fired upon by the federals op
posite the town of Ojinaga, and that they
liad been forced to take to cover to avoid
danger." The lieutenant carefully inves
tigated the complaint and submitted to
Gen Duncan that "there was no evidence
to show that the Mexican troops had
deliberately fired upon the patroL"

The pictures depict actual scenes which

In addition to showing rtnnj of the
army maneuvers, of both the infantry
and the cavalry, the films give the spec

the moving films, and AVishington people

Critics who declare members of the
Y. M. C. A. to be "kid-glove Christians"
received a refutation at the Boy Scout
display In the Arcade Building last
night. About 230 scouts participated, and
gave practical demonstrations of the
knowledge in woodcraft and general
open-air activities Indulged in by In
dians, woodsmen, and military de
fenders. A distinguished audience saw exhibi
tions in every branch of "scout craft"
known to the organization, and no fea
ture of the performance failed to claim
Its share of the applause. The old claim
that tho lighting of fires without the
aid of matches Is impossible was shat
tered, as the scouts scorned the methods
known to civilization oy securing sparks
in seven minutes and flames In eleven
minutes, using only th6 old Indian
method of rubbing a hard stick with an
implement in the shape of a bow. Julian
Jlovey, leader of the Beaver Patrol, was
the scout to make this record, and was
nniowcd closely by the other competi
tors. Within five minutes of tho starter's pis
tol the troop from Peck Chapel had a
regular army dog tent erected, but were
beaten out by the Y. M. C A. troop in
striking the tents. Realistic "fights" with
clubs and spears by memtjers ot the
Friendship House and Brookland Baptist
troops were given, but no winners were
announced, as the boys fought only with
members of their own patrols and were

Greatest Value in Player-Pianos
at popular prices to be found anywhere.
Artistic Standards of the Aeolian Company
The New Technola Piano
Fidelity to the highest artistic ideals an ability to give the greatest value
at a minimum of cost these are the fundamentals on which the Aeolian
Company has built the largest music business in the world.
In this Company's latest achievement The Technola Piano these
fundamentals are represented in their fullest degree.
The Technola Piano is the first artistic player-piano ever put upon
the market at a popular price. Four years were required to build the
Technola Piano. The leading experts of nine famous factories have
co-operated in its development. All the skill, the experience, and the
craftsmanship of the world's greatest musical instrument specialists are
embodied in this new instrument.
Lacking the Aeolian Company's almost unlimited facilities, the
economies resulting from its enormous manufacturing operations, and its
wonderful organization, no manufacturer could begin to produce such an
instrument as this and sell it at so low a price.
A Statement from the Technola's Makers
The manufacturers of the Technola Piano are recognized throughout the entire world as the
leading specialists in player-construction.
They arc responsible for sach renowned instruments as thc Stcinway, Weber, Steck, Wheclock,
and Stuyvesant Pianola Pianos, the Aeolian Orchcstrclle, and the superb Aeolian Pipe Organ.
Based on their practical knowledge of the whole player industry in Europe as well as in Amer
ica they make the unequivocal statement
That no player-piano at anywhere near the price of the Technola approaches it
And that no player-piano at any price (with the single exception of the Pianola Piano)
surpasses the Technola.
The payment of $20 places this superb instrument in your home. Monthly payments of
$12 are then charged on the balance. The cost of music for the Technola Piano is slight.
A small sum annually gives access to the Aeolian Music Circulating Library the largest
and most complete institution of its kind in existence.
The Technola Piano is-made in two styles one at $450 and another model, playing
both 65 and 88 note music rolls, at $525.

THE AUCTIONEER'S CRY.
I stood and watched the auctioneer, who bought things cheap
and sold them dear. He had a large, abysmal mouth, the which he
pointed to the south, and from its dark recesses poured a flood of
eloquence that soared. He'd dam the torrent now and then, and
look upon the throng of men, and slam his fist the desk upon, and
thunder: "Going gong gone!" What is there in that chaste
refrain that makes it linger in my brain? I see the village sport
go by, with dark blue breath and bloodshoe eye, to try and case his
load of care by taking some of Fido's hair; I sec him put his watch
in pawn, and murmur: "Going going gone!" Here's Emma
Jane on Cholly's arm; she doesn't mean a bit of harm, but she's
acquired a notion wrong that life is but a dance and song. The
peeler says her joyous feet arc wearing furrows in the street
"I'll pinch her," says he, "some fine dawn." Another going
going gone ! So many hit the downward pike ! The kind of folks
that all men like; the bright, the thoughtless and the gal, all hiking
down, the same old way! We'll lecture them, and hand them
tracts, and load them down with helpful facts, when they are safely
'jailed at last, but who will warn, as they go past perdition's glaring
road upon, these mortals going going gone?
