United States Troops to Pur
Not Step to Intervention
Not to ASuffer at H
(Washington, March 10.?American
troops were ordered across the Mexican
border today by President Wilson
to take Francisco (Villa and his bandits
dead or alive.
Under the direction, if not actually
the leadership, o: Gen. Funston, who
ended the Phillipine insurrection by
taking Aguinaldo single handed, American
columns are expected to be moving
into Mexico before tomorrow
night. They go to meet about 3,000
guerilla iroups iu <t muuuiaiuuuis n.gion
from which Carranza soldiers
taave fled.
Whether this long de-erred armed j
action, which begins purely as a puni
tive measure to clear northern Mexico
of menacing bandit bands over!
which Gen. Carranza has no control, |
shall grow into a general armed inter- ;
vention or occupation in Mexico, depends
in a large measure upon Gen.
Carranza and the Mexican people.
It begins witb President Wilson's
declaration that it is entirely in aid ;
of the Carranza government and without
thought of aggression. This statement.
DreDared Dy the piesiden* *ilm
self, was given out at the White j
'tVn adequate .force will be sent at
once in pursuit of Villa with the single
object of capturing him and putting a
stop to his forays.
"This can be done and will be done
in entirely friendly aid of the constitute !
ed authorities in Mexico and with i
scrupulous respect for the sovereign-:
ty of that republic." j
President Wilson's decision to de-!
part .from the policy of watchful wait-!
tng, hastened toy the iColum'bus massa- i
ere yesterday, was announced today i
after it had been unanimously ap- j
proved by the cabinet and adminlstration
leaders in congress. ixhe presi- J
debt's position was explained fully to j
the latter, who agreed that he should
not 'be embarrassed at this time by
discussions of minority which might,
arouse trouble in Mexico.
After a 'brief cabinet meeting, at
which the president was described as
being as determined to eliminate Villa
as he was to eliminate Huerta, Secre
tary -Baser nurried to the war department
anVas his first act in office sent;
orders to the border.
Soon arterwards the army general'
staff assembled and conferred over
the plans, long drawn and perfected !
since the Meixcan situation loomed up j
as a disturber to the peace of the
United States.
v Gen. Funston telegraphed, urging |
\v utmost secrecy as to the army's plans.
\ The border is honeycombed with Mex'
ican spies and it was agreed that the :
expedition would 'be pushed to sue-j
ces^ (by keeping Villa and his men j
-ignorant of its movements. It is pos- j
sible .that no correspondents will be '
permitted to accompany the columns. j
At any rate a strict censorship will be j
imposed. >
Former Secretary Garrison, familiar j
with the army's Mexican plans by his
connection with the crisis of two years
ago, came to Washington and offered
his services to aid his successor. They
were at once accepted and Mr. Garrison

Gen. Carranza, in a telegram to tlie
. state department, expressed regret at;
, the Columbus massacre, but made no
j comment on the proposal of sending
| American troops to hunt down the
! bandits. Eliseo Arrendondo, his am- j
' bassador here, was officially inform- j
j ed o: the American government's J
. action. He only replied that he would \

previously expressed his personal
opinion that the movement would not
be opposed.
j State department officials declined
to say what their attitude would be
if Gen. Carranza took hostile position. I
They said the United States would!
settle that question when it arose. If!
an offer of cooperation of Carranza j
trooDs is made, thev said, it could i
hardly be refused. Today Gen. /Car-,
ranza ordered 5,000 troops from various
garrisons to move on the Villa
.forces. The effect of their advance
probably would foe to keep the Villa
bandits near the border, but Secre- j
tary Lansing announced during the j
day that no matter how far into Mexico
it was necessary for American
forces to penetrate, or to what num-1
bers it became necessary to increase
their force, the United States would
consider the expedition a punitive one,
solely for the suppression of outlaws.
For such an expedition there is ample
precedent in international law and i
in fact in the relations a: the 'United j
States with Mexico.
How many of the 12,000 troops now j
on the iborder will 'be employed lias j
not fully been determined. The general
plan will be to distribute the infantry
to guard the border towns,
while the cavalry will be released for
scouring the mountains, deserts, sagebrush
and arroyos. In order not To \
weaken the defenses o: border towns i
il may uc juectxssary iu xuuvc uiLitrr ;
troops from interior posts to the border.
No prospect of using the NationalGuard
exists in the situation tonight
but any larger scale of operations
might involve it.

The Progressive Farmer !has never,
for the average Southern farmer, takei:
any stock in the agi'ation for livestock
as a substitute for cotton, and
Vv e are glad to see the fact is coming j
more and .more to be recognized mar j
livestock farming should have a place |
on every .farm, but seldom, if ever,!
can livestock farming exclusively be
made the most profitable. Just as
all-cotton farming is a badly balanced,
unprofitable business, so is it unsafe
and certainly conductive to the
maximum possible profits to attempt;
to raise livestock exclusively. The
best results are to come only when
livestocks, legumes, grain and cotton
are so combined L.hat all food and feed
for man and beast are produced and;
soil fertility is maintained. This and ;
this alone can rigntly "be called good !
.farming and good farm management.

In the Nature of Things They Simply
Can't He!p Being Numerous.
Iu the south especially and in Ken-;
tucky more especially a man becomes ' i
a colonel at about forty-seven unless !
he is of a willful, rebellious, obstrcper-1 i
oils disposition ami inclined to standi
up for an admitted but rarely exercised 1 ;
right not to become known as "colo- j
nel." A man who is nut sudden and j
quick in quarrels and who can be put; ,
upon cannot escape becoming "colo-1 .
nel." Many men whose courage is 1111-1 (
questioned prefer not to engage in; ,
street fights in opposition to an estab-! ,
lished custom. It is the rule rather i
than the exception to submit ?<?<>(] na ' ,
turedly or with concealed impatience j ,
when the first three gray hairs appear . ^
at the temples and the use of the title ;
begins by popular consent.
There are. of course, many colonels! ,
under forty. When a governor is inaugurated
he has the power to appoint i ,
staff colonels. A governor who does '
not appoint as colonels such of his con (
stituents as he knows by name is lacking
in tlie jtuncriliousness which distin-!
guishes the practical politician. Thus
many young men who would have been, .
"leftenants" if they had adopted a mil-! (
itary career are made colonels in civil
life. Another predisposing caus^ of,
premature colonelcy is the tendency of j
some men to become far early In life.'
A man who measures as much as forty j
inches at the waist line and has not:
been convicted of felony is entitled, j
even obliged, lo be called "colonel'* before
he is forty.?Louisville CourierJournal.

it Brought an Actress the Most Perilous
Moment of Her Life.
"The only time I ever was a thief
saved my life," said Rose Coghlan
once. "My sister-in-law, Louisa Thorn-1
ton, was playing in 'Colleen Bawn' in
Scotland. I was Anne Chute, one of 1
the bridesmaids, and I always dressed '
in Louisa's room with her.
"This particular night she was ill,
and her understudy went on. Now, it (
happened that I had longed and longed
to wear a certain costume of Louisa's, i
It wasn't one bit suitable for a girl of;
my age in a bridesmaid part, being;
made of heavy white corded silk with ,
a long court train and all the fixings, j
but I adored it.
"I dressed up in it and went out to;
wait for the cue with the otner gins.j
Just as we were ready to go on some
one behind me said. 'Rose, your dress
is on fire!' i
"I think that is the most fearful, :
word that can sound in a theater? j '
'Fire!' My train had caught fire from
one of the little gas footlights, unpro- j
tected then.
"The girls in their light dresses were'
trying to get away from me, and the' :
nearest man. Hardress, was handcuffed.
I crushed my train in my
hands to smother the creeping flame
and backed off down the steps under
the stage. A man down there threw a 1
heavy cloak over me, and I fainted. 1

dress saved me."?New York World.
The Tyrant In the Field.
There have been few commanders so
tyrannous as Lopez, the ^dictator of
Paraguay, when in the. war of 18G5-70
it fought single handed the neighboring
countries of Argentina. Brazil and
Uruguay. Lopez, says Mr. W. H. Koebel
in his "Argentina." was wont to
carry the theory of victory or death

were executed for mere remarks
whose tone fell beneath the standard
of confidence that Lopez had set up for
himself. One, for Instance was shot
for having announced In the course of
his duty that the enemy was strongly
intrenched! Another met his end on account
of ai\ unguarded speech to the
effect that the Paraguayan army was
accustomed to count the enemy's losses
and forget its own."
Yawning is a peculiar act and one
that has never yet been properly accounted
for. It is not by any "means a
siirn oi iau^ue omy% miuuuuu it i* i
sometimes produced by overexertion.
But an attack of yawning comes on
much more quickly if one is intensely
bored, and certainly a stuffy atmosphere
tends to produce it. It is also
noticeable that when one-has gone con-;
siderably past one's men I time the tendency
to yawn frequently becomes ir- !
resistible. A very peculiar feature of |
this complaint is its infectiousness:
one person can easily set half a dozen

Real Sympathy. i
An old farmer down the country giving
instructions for his will directed a ^
legacy of $25,000 to be given to his
wife. Being informed that some distinction
was usually made in case the 1
widow married again, he doubled the J
sum, and when told that this was eon- 1
trary to custom he said, with heartfelt
sympathy for his possible successor. <

Widows With Offspring Should Be Sure
to Make Their Wills.
Sometimes the failure to make a will
involves more than a loss of time and
money. You are a widow and without
a will, leaving children who are
not yet of age. Now. you may not care
who looks after your property, but you
do have a lively interest in the person
who looks after your children. If you
had left a will you could have named
therein the guardian for your children

that still further complicates matters.
