their action on the liver, should know that large
doses rarely prove as satisfactory as small ones.
Large doses simply purge and pass out of the sys

seldom removing the cause of the trouble, or im
prove the general health. On the other hand,
small doses deelop the alterative effect of the
medicine, do not irritate or constipate the bowels,

accumulation of bile by directing its no into the
proper channels. 1 herefore it is advisable to com

WRITES FROM MEXICO.
C. T. Erringer, Former Paris
Boy Tells Interesting Story
of Mixican Revolution.
Says 'fhrse-Fourths of Popula
tion Is In Sympathy With
Efforts Against L)iaz.
In a series of letters to a Paris
friend, T. Clarence Erringer, a former
Paris boy, who is now a resident of
Chicago, traveling in Mexico and the
Southern American states in the inter
est ofja well known automobile firm,
tells graphically some of his experi
ences in the land of the Montezumas
during a period of the revolution
against the Diaz regime. The follow
ing are extracts from some of the let
ters, which deal mainly with personal
experiences and views of the writer:
"Chihuahua, Mexico Dear li. Have
spent the morning doing Chihuahua.
This is a beautiful city with a popula
tion of 38.000. 1,500 being Americans.
The city is looking and preparing for
a "scrap," and it looks to me that it
will come soon, as the rebels are grow
ing stronger daily and capturing all
the towns within a radius of 100 miles
"Early this a. m. I visited the
States prison. Not being visitor's d&y
I flashed the card of my friend, Mr.
Friss, the war corespondent of the El
Paso, Texas, Herald, and the captain
of the guard took off his hat to me and
detailed a special guard to show me
through. They certainly have an up-to-date
prison here, being far ahead of
Joliet and other American institutions
in every respect. In each cell, which
is well ventilated, they have running
eat, and each cell is provided with a
soft bpd to sleep on far different
from the jail at Juarez. In this prison
at present are six hundred prisoners,
onlv two of whom are white.
"I was introduced to the Warden and
extended every courtsey as a news
paper man. 1 told him I expected to
go over to Guerrero to witness a little
fighting, and they told me to drop off
at Pedernales, '"hero a battle was sure
to come off tomorrow. Therefore, in
stead of going to Guerreio, as intend
ed, I will go to Pedernales early in the

Mexican customs officials in Juarez.
They held me up ( n account of some
articles of clothing I had with me.
stating that thty could not pass me.
The train was held fifteen minutes
during the aigument. I told them
th"y could take the samples and well,
finally, Mr. Friss, of the Herald, ex
plained, as l couia not taiK "Aiexi -
cano, " and they pasted an 0. K. label
on mv grips. Now, I suppose I will
I have trouble going into the states.
However, so far so good.
"1 visited an old Mexican church.
I built seveial hundred years ago, also
plazas innumerable. The city is sur-
I rounded by mountains and has some
i beautiful Mexican homes. I visited
the home or the uovernor, ana l astire
you it is a veritable palace. I would
give the world to have you with me, to
enjoy tnis wondrously beautiful coun
try. It is simply beyond description.
"Today is a holiday, or fieast, and
the city is in ga!a attire; hands play
ing; citizens singing on the streets;
soldiers coming and going, and every
thing very muoh alive, as it there was
no danger or death lurking near. It is
amusing to see thewomen making and
selling bread in the streets; beggars
innumerable asking for one centos or
anything they can get. You know a
1 Mexican dollar is only fifty cents in
our money, so my living is very cheap
costs me $1.50 a day, and I see it all.
"Mr. Friss is a very fine fellow. He
was formerly connected with the Chi
cago Tiibune. He said if the fight
j was not over by the time we reached j
reuernaies we wuum lime a uuaiuun
on the side of the mountain, and wit-
ness the wnole engagement with no
i challce of being shot or wounded. I

I expect to go up to Brownsville, Tex
as, as soon as we cn get away from
the fight, and will let you know what
happened, as far as I had a chance to
see or near of it. Sincerely,
"T. C. E."
"JRancho Santiago ti miles East of
Pedernales, Mexico. Dear B. 'This
is as nearly correct a statement of
what I have seen of the Mexican revo
Ijtion, as witnessed by a traveling
man, as one of that 'long-suffering
tribe' could make.
"I arrived in Pedernales on the
morning of the expected battle, the
object of my visit being to learn the
true condition of tne revolution in
Mexico. Upon arriving I learned of
the presence here of Mr. C. D. Hager
tv.the Associated Press correspondent,
also a Mr. Harris, official photogaph
er. "The revolutionists received me very
kindly, and offered me an escort to the
Rancho Santiago, near the scene of the
fighting. Upon arrivial here I learned
that an attack was to be made by the
Federals on the ranch that night, and I
was advised to make a hasty eixt to
the ranch of an American by the name
of Farragut, who kindly gave me
shelter for the night. The next day,
there being no attack made that night,
.1 went over into the Federal lines,. and
witnessed scenes that are almost be
yond description. In Sunday's red-hot
engagement the revolutionists fought
General Navarra to a finish, although
inferiaor in numbers. Seventy-four
are known to have been killed, fourteen
of them hping rebels. Every man in
the littel town of Cerro Prieto was
brought before the Mayor to prove his
innocence of participation in the re
volt. Thirty could not do this, as fasf
as their identity became known they
were taken out and shot like dogs.
Five of the insuriectos who ran out of
ammunition and surrendered were
bayoneted. One of the number, who
had fainted from a bullet wound in the
temple, a flesh wound only, and a bay
onet thrust on his ribs, was left on
the field for dead but daring the night
revived sufficiently to make his escape.
"The most serious loss sustained by
the revolutionists occurred in an
'adobe' in which they had taken re
fuge. A shell wrecked the place, kll
ing and wounding several, but not be
fore they had accountd for a number
of the enemy. I counted thirteen dead
near the ruins of the 'adobe.' They
had all been stripped of their clothing
by the Federals, and thrown into the
road. This is a common practice for
the soldiers to do, not only to secure
the clothing out to concegj their ident
ity. "Last night a famous bandit by the
name of Pancho Villa, with about
twenty-vfie of his followers, forsook
the path of patriotism for the old line
of endeavor. They beat up and rob-'
had a Chinaman who acted as myinter
prete the day preceding; extorted
52,000 Mexican money from a nearby
anchman, and threatened to kill the
ftstion agent at Pedernales becaube he
refused to give them two horse shoes.
The agent left his station todsy and
fled to Chihuahua, but not until affSr
the bandits had pillaged his brother':
store and threatened to returnthe next
day and kill him.
"The leader of the revolutionists at
this point is a man by the name of
Herrara ; with General Navarra, lead
er of the Federals
"The day of my departure for
Chihuahua the revolutionists informed
me that they, with their army cf
1,500, would advance on General
Navarra that afternoon, and that they
had no possible escape with his army
of 1,000 men, as thty had them 'but
"The revolutionists now hold the
following tomis: Isabel, Palomas,
San Antonio, San Andreas, Rosario,
Minica, Cusihuirachia, and other small
towns. I am informed by Herrara
that if they win this battle they will
take Chihuahua. The revolutionists
are far better fighters and generals
than the regulars, mot of them being
of the educated class of men, and con.
sisting of merchants and others who
have large interests at stake.
"From the different interviews I
have had with the citizens of Chihua
hua, Monterey and Torreonh I find
that about seventy-five per cent of the
population are in sympathy with the
revolutionists, but dare rot express
their opinions publicly. There is net
the slightest doubt m my mind that
the revolution nas only begun, and will
finally result in the complete over
throw of President Diaz and his
government. his revolution is un
doubtedly the result of an unlimited
Jraft despotism and oppression of
the masses by the classes.
