Villa, outlawed Mexican bandit raidk
ed United States territory today. With
j 500 men be attacked Columbus, killed
at least 16 Americans ana nrea many
i -buildings 'before he was driven Dack
^ across the international border. iNo;
less than 250 troopers of the Thirteenth
United States cavalry, 'followed
W tke Villa band into Mexico. Reports
f late today to Col. Slocum, commanding
'American troops here, stated that
Villa had made a stand 15 miles south
ef the border, where spirited fighting
was in progress. In this engagement!
V a private was killed and Capt. George !
Williams, adjutant, of the Thirteenth !
J cavalry, was wounded.
The small detachment of troops un_
ier Maj. Frank iTompkins and Capt.;
Imer Lindsey, fighting dismounted,!
saiade a letermined stand against the '
renewed Villa attack, and at last report
were holding their ground.
Tie raid on American territory
proved costly to the bandit chieftian. j
The bodies of 18 bandits, including
Pablo Lopez, second in command, had
been gathered and burned before noon
aBd troopers reported an undetermined
number o~ dea still lying *n the j
brush. Led to the attack under the .
slogan "Death to the Americans," Vil- j
la's followers fought with desperation.
*Fust before dawn they crept along j
r ditches skirting the United States cav- |
alrv camp and rushed the sleeping i
town, iiring heavily.
The first voMey brought American
troopers into almost instant action.,
While a portion of the raiders engaged
the cavalrymen others began apply- j
i ing the torch and shooting American
civilians who ventured from the build j
ings. Lights in homes and public I
buildings immediately became targets
for snippers posted at Villa's direction, j

IS TRUE SUCCESS? M [
Perhaps the commonest mistake
about success is that it is or the few
and is a matter or external accumum- i
tion; I believe on the contrary, tDat
success is possible for everybody and
is a matter of inward achievement. '
This is only another way of saying
what the Great Master said, that "a
-man's life consisteth not in the abunrance
of the things which he possessed,"
and what Canon Farrar said, j
namely, that "there is only one failure [
possible in li e, and that is not to be i
true to the best one knows." And ;
tbis last clause reminds me of an in- j

Here then is my description of sue- j
jr ?ese, and I shall make it the text of all j
' 5 am going to say:
iThat man is succeeding in life wno
has a worthy ideal and struggles to-1

iNow this definition implies a lot of '
things. It implies that the successful

Now it is hard to decide which one
of these qualities should be emphasized
first, but I am of the opinion it
should be energy. If a boy is willing
io work and make himself work, lie
may start out wrong but is likely to
get right lateV on, while if he is not
willing to work and drive himself,
:t.-4osen't matter how fine his ideals
way be, he is not likely to amount to i
anything. He is like a fine engine on

The Mystery of a Duel.
Having fought his duel and saved his
honor by firing a shot in the air. the
editor of a French provincial newspaper
went back to his desk, and the incident
had quite left his mind when he
felt something strange in his thigh.
He looked and found that he was bleeding
profusely. A doctor was called,
who discovered that a bullet was im
bedded in the editor's tbign some two j
inches deep and required extraction.
"Why was this not taken notice of on
the spot where the duel took place?"
lie asked. The editor was as much in
the dark as the doctor. At the moment
of the duel he had fired into the air,
and his adversary also took a distracted
sort of aim. The editor felt nothing
as he left the field and had shaken
hands with his antagonist as a sign of
reconciliation. How a bullet came to
be lodged in his thigh was simply one
of the mysteries of dueling.
