That tlo* rebels hax.- been very
sin.ngly reinforced is tha report of
Federal seerot agents who have bOW
keeping in tOUCh with tha movements
of rebels. Every garrison in Northern
Mexico haB been depbted to send men
'and ammunltion to Villa at < ijinaga.
j and the greatest effort Paneho Villa
has made will be in th. new attack on
Ojinaga lf the rebel chlcf still is un
Not less than ten thousand rebels
will be in the attacking army, an3 the
attack cannot long be d>-laye.l, for the
rebels have only a temporary camp
now and have made no preparations
for remaining tben any length of time.
Villa reaehed the rebel camp yester?
day, a<'< ording to a dlapgtch roachlng
h.re, and while local rebels are anxious
I thay insist that the rebels' delay in at
I tacklng ls due to Vil'.as usual care in

In ojinaga the Federals admit that
I ihe attack on the town by rebels per

i if ?ubordlnata ofheers led the men.
Villa's jiersonality counts very
I strongly with his men. They will go

not wlth hlm. and this provokad a report
that thelr romance was at an end.
Mrs. Knox, jr.. is livlng alone in Phila

his parenta In Valley FOTga Penn.
Knox Wtus asked about the matter yes
terday on the Bermudian, but he arould
say nofiilng. His mother. too, would not
reveel whether the young couple had
agreed to separate. Mrs. Knox. sr., .-aid
that Bhe and her son would probably re?
maln In Bermoda for six weeks.
Knox was attending the Morris Heights
School la Providence. when he met Miss
May R-'ler ln thu fall of 1909. She, B
tail, beautlful young woman. was em
ploped I" -*? department store there.
Nelther waa twenty-one.
In March, 1910. Knox asked for a short
leave of aTisence from school. so 8hat he
might vtstt a friend ln Hartford. It was
graattd. Knox th.;n met Miss Boler by
appointment, and they w.-nt to Boston.
They deelded t<> have the marrlage per
formed at Champlaln, N. Y.. and thither
they went. but they could not get a
llcense, so they croased the lake to Bur?
lington. \ t . wbere they found no obstacle.
The young 8888**8 father, then 8ecretary
of State, xvas very angry when he earned
of the marriage, and he refused to for
t-ive xming Pliilander at the time. I^ater
he gave in. The young man ln the mean
tlme got employment ln n. Detroit auto
raebtle faafaey, The young couple then
made thelr home on the Knox estate, at
Wayne. Penn.. and it was belleved that
they were happier than ever until yes
ter,la>'n development. Kven close friends
Of the palr had no inkling of trouble. for
there were callers at the Wayne house
yesterday who expressed auriirt.se when
InfOrmed that nelther Mr. nor Mra. Knox.
Jr., was there.
Tradesmen ln Philadelphia say they
aere lnformed recently that th?- Knox
family would not accept responslbility for
