many motion picture reels now being
prepared. The Selig Tolyscope com
pany is at work on a series of scenes
that show Uncle Sam's soldier boys in
every arm of the service infantry,
cavalry, artillery, and the signal corps;
in setting up exercises, in making and
breaking camp, in drills and skirm

the troopers quite outdo the feats of
ordinary circus riders. A reel will be
devoted to the entrainment of all
forces, includiug artillery, and their

his companion abducted her and ruin

brother died. Villa journeyed to tne
garrison town and killed the lieuten
ant, but the companion escaped. Villa
then sold his ranch and with a small
body of his men escaped to the moun

in revenge for the death and ruin of
his sister. He became a bandit, and
