MORE FICTION ON
THE. JUAREZ BATTLE
Texas Magazine Prints One
Story; Douglas Paper
At last It has come. The battle of
Juarez has been woven Into a romance.
In a recent issue of the Texas maga
zine, the famous battle of May S, 9
and 10, ls retold in all of its vividness.
The story ig called "The Hero of
Juarez," and tells of the adventuros of
a Texas cowboy, who was in command
of a Madertsta company and who led
the attack on the town. Gen. Navarro.
"Gen. Madero." and "Red Shirt" are
each given a prominent part in the
story. But the dODe is a llttln twisted
regarding "Red Shirt," as ho is made a
cigar store Indian character by the
formal treatment of the author. As
father of the girl In the story, ho
stands in the center of the international
.bridge and defies the bullets of the
federals. It Is a fln story as romantin
stories go, as little or no attention has
been paid to names, dates, facts, or
particulars of the battle that occurred
across the creek.
Another article, equally as fictional,
about the same battle Is printed in a
Douglas, Arizona, paper, crediting "Tex"
O'Reilly with being "the man who op
erated the machine gun for Madero" In
the battle of Juarez. O'Reilly was not
within several hundred miles of the
battle of Juarez when it wag fought and
Madero did not have a machine gun
when he made the- attack. The story
reads well, however.
