William Kleinsmith, age 25, residing on a farm three miles north of Evans ville, died in the Wesley Memorial hos pital in Chicago, early in the morning of June 26, after undergoing an opera tion for appendicitis.

Seven head of cattle belonging to F. Woodstock, who lives on the C J. Pearsall farm near this city, got out of the pasture early Tuesday morning and after going about 80 rods north of the Main street crossing, three were killed and one injured by being struck by pas senger train No. 512, due here at 5:06 a. m. Mr. Woodstock refused to touch the dead cattle, o Mr. Colton, in be half of the railroad, sold their hides to Eugene Williams. Mr. Woodstock val ues his loss at $lB5. Owing to the fact that the cattle were on the railroad company’s property within the city limits, it is not thought that the road can be held responsible for the loss. Milton P. L.

The finding of a suit of boy scout clothing on the banks of Rock river near Johnson Creek Saturday leads to the belief that a drowning took place there. On the bank were a canoe, green painted paddles with the name Bleeker, a shirt, necktie, coat, shoes, but no trousers. There was also a bag of salt, potatoes, and other camp uten sils. The necktie was blue and the wearer about 16 years old. Monday the Jefferson Boy Scouts went to the scene and dragged the river in that vicinity without success.

For years the following state ment from an Edgerton resident has withstood the sternest of all tests. J. M. Ogden, E. Fulton St., Edger ton, says: “For more than a year I was annoyed by pains in the small of my back. The attacks came on sud denly, lasting for several hours and then disappeared, only to return again in a few weeks. I sometimes had headaches and the kidney secretions were unnatural. A few boxes of Doan’s Kidney Pills drove every symp tom of kidney complaint from my sys tem and I am now enjoying much bet ter health. ” PERMAFENT BENEFIT More than three years later Mr. Og den said: “I haven’t had occasion to use any kidney medicine since I took Doan’s Kidney Pills.

ASKS DIREGT NEGOTIATION Thinks Two Governments Can Come to Understanding Without Media tion—Blames Americans for Carri* zal Attack —U. S. Troops May Be Brought to Points Nearer Border. WASHINGTON. Secretary Lam sing has received Carranza’s reply to the last two American notes. Eliseo Arredondo, Carranza’s am bassador-designate, received the 2,000 word reply. The note covers the following points: It reiterates Carranza’s ability to protect the American border without the aid of the United States troops in Mexico. Doesn’t Answer Wilson. It urges that the presence of Amer ican troops is largely responsible for the unsettled conditions and declares their withdrawal is necessary to elim inate a cause of friction and difficulty. It does not. reply specifically to the demand made in the last note for an explanation of Carranza’s intentions, but goes into a general discussion of the Carrizal attack from the Mexican viewpoint. Finally, it states the Mexican gov ernment has expressed itself as to the principle of mediation and asks the United States to record its views, add ing that direct negotiations between the two governments should be suc cessful without mediation. Peaceful Situation in Sight. WASHINGTON, D. C. —Events are working toward a peaceful solution of the Mexican problem. Both President Wilson and General Carranza are showing a conciliatory disposition, the former by acts, the ’alter by the character of the commu c!cations he is making unofficially to this government. Under instructions from the secre tary of War, General Pershing, in command of the expedition in Chihua hua, is gradually drawing north. In formation of this procedure has reached Mexico City, and according to official advices has created a good impression in that capital. To Leave Mexico Soon. It is untrue that General Pershing has geen ordered to retire to Ameri can soil. What he has done —and it develops he ha s acted in accordance with specific directions —has been to fall back and establish anew line, running from Columbus, N. M., to a point within 100 miles of the border. While officials are exceedingly reti cent, the general belief prevails that the President hag determined to leave Mexico within a comparatively short time. Secretary Lansing declined to confirm or deny the report that the American forces are to be withdrawn. The farthest south General Persh ing’s main force is Dublan. The towns of Namiquipa, Santa Clara and Cruces have been evacuated and occupied by Carranza troops. El Valle is to be evacuated, if not already abandoned. Carranza Wins Delay. General Carranza has made it clear that it is impossible for him at this moment formally to respond to the American note demanding a state ment of his intentions. He will reply eventually, and Secretary Lansing has acquiesced in the delay. Carranza is anxious, however, and the authorities are aware of his attitude, that some sort of a solution which will be mu tually satisfactory shall be reached promptly. In order to maintain him self in the presidency it is necessary for him to insist publicly on the with drawal of the American troops, but he has not given any instructions to attack except in case of an American movement south, east or west, and will not do so pending a discussion between the two governments.
