(Received at Anderson 4:1 2 p. m. Monday)
Washington, April 27-4:10 p. m.-Diplomats here have
little hope that negotiations for mediation between the United
States and Mexico will have a successful conclusion. They say
that the mediators have an almost impossible task before them.
Officials of thu government, however, are hopeful.
It was announced that arrangements have been made for talc
mg all Amerscans from Mexico City. General reports were that
all is c. ?ot there and at Vera Cruz.
Am ba?"' dors of the three mediating governments were in con
ference tr ji late Monday afternoon. It waa said that no plans
off proem ire had been decided upon.
NOTE-lt had been stated in Saturday night's ui;-j?atches
that an effort had been made by Brazil to get the United Sta'.es and
Mexico together on peace* terms. President Wilson cxp-Pjsed his
entire willingness, and Monday's dispatches state that Huerta also
will accept the offers of the South American4 mediators. But con
gress is very warlike.

It is, however, by no means neces

by plowing under merely the roo?? and

For early pasturing, criaron clover

drawback being the limited period in
which it can be utilized for this pur
