CORRESPONDENCE
Evansville
Marked by simplicity and impressive
ness, the marriage of Ewart O. Evans
of Genesee to Miss Gladys Clifford of
this city took place at the home of Mrs.
Gertrude Eager on Main street, Tues
day evening at 7 o’clock, Rev. Chas. E.
Coon officiating.
In the municipal court at Janesville,
Monday afternoon, Nicholas Burgeson
of this city pleaded not guilty to the
charge of petit larceny, preferred by
Byron Reese, also of Evansville. It is
alleged that Burgeson stole 24 pounds
of milk, valued at 30 cents. The case
will be tried July 18.
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. He was taken to
Chicago Monday morning. Kleinsmith
was a prosperous young farmer and
well known in Evansville. He is sur
vived by his wife, who was formerly
Clara Malkow of Evansville, one son
Alvin, two brothers, one sister, and his

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.

Wednesday morning 14 of our boys ran
against teams from Shopiere, Orford
ville and Rock Prairie. Each team
started from their home town and ran
to the city hall in Janesville, each man
of the team running a half mile and de

the town chairman to Mayor Fathers,
to his successor in the race. The Junc

full eight miles and started the race at
the seven mile mark near R. L. Cary’s.

others ran in the following order: Elroy
Hinkley, Dwight Hinkley, Geo. Green
man, Myron Warner, Albert Pinnow,

Edwin Davy, Fred Roberts, Walter
Gasper, Carroll West. The total dis
tance was made in 39 minutes and 45
seconds, an average of a little over 2

mile. West made the last lap in 2:15,
the fastest in the race.

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.

One Who Shows No Favor.
A merciless judge is Father Time.
Before him the weak and the wanting
go to the wall. Only the truth can
stand. 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

den said: “I haven’t had occasion to
use any kidney medicine since I took
Doan’s Kidney Pills. The benefit they
gave me has been permanent.”

Should Sloan’s Liniment go Along?
Of course it should! For after a
strenuous day when your muscles have
been exercised to the limit an applica
tion of Sloan’s Liniment will take the
soreness and stiffness away and get
you in fine shape for tomorrow. You
should also use it for a sudden attack
of toothache, stiff neck, backache,
stings, bites and the many accidents
that are incidental to a vacation. “We
would as soon leave our baggage as go
on a vacation or camp out without
Sloan’s Liniment.” Writes on vaca
tionist: “We use it for everything
from cramps to toothache.” Put a
bottle in your bag, be prepared and
have no regrets. 2

CARRANZA NOTE
IS CONCILIATORY
• - ■■■
Reply to Wilson’s Two Com
munications Received.
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.

“That Farm Looks
Prosperous”
People always make remarks like that when
they drive by a trimly-painted set of buildings in
the country.
Asa matter of fact; it may be that the rather
shabby place a mile back was really slightly
better land, but APPEARANCES were against
it!
There is invariably a PROSPEROUS LOOK
that comes with the use of
TINTED GLOSS PAINT
This is as it should be. If PERSONAL
tidiness and cleanliness are desirable in men and
women, be sure that they are of equal importance
in respect to BUILDINGS.
And GOOD paint —such as LUCAS
TINTED GLOSS PAiNT—costs so little,
after all, AND ACCOMPLISHES SO
MUCH!
Come in TODAY, if you can, and let’s talk
over that paint problem of YOURS,
