Tho Americans have all loft Tampico and but few are now in Mexico City. The British and Germans have taken refuge in the British legation, whoro they -are pro-1 pared to resist any attack made upon them. Tampico was taken after several days of tho fiercest fighting of tho revolution. The rebels had secured artillery an dwerc placed upon an equal footing with tho federals. Huerta has protested to the medi ators because the United States has' seized the island of Lobos on which is a lighthouse. Huorta had ordered that the light be extinguished. National tribute was paid tho ma rines and soldiers who wore killed in the fighting at Vera Cruz on the ar rival of the bodies at Now York. The seventeen flag-draped coffins were landed at Battery Park, New York, from which point tho parade started. At the City Hall 800 school children sang "Nearer, My God, to Thee." The final ceremonies were held at the Brooklyn navy yard. President Wil son had gone from Washington to take part n the ceremonies. He rode in the parade and stayed until the end. Richard Harding Davis and other correspondents arrested by Huerta's orders have been released. Frederick W.

Edes as mem bers of the Alaska engineering com mission, another long ste'p In the di rection of a successful government railroad in the northern territory has been taken. The commission to which the two men have just been appointed is to have charge of the location of the new government railroad in Alaska. Lieutenant Mears was the chief engi neer of the Panama railroad and was suggested for this new work by Colo nel Goethals. Mr. Edes was former ly chief engineer for the Northwest ern Pacific railroad in California. He is the man who located and built many of the most difficult stretches of mountain railroad for the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific. Both men will leave at once for Alaska to begin their new task. President Wilson recently received a letter from James Dietrick, a rail road contractor, who has just com pleted largo work for the Russian government in Siberia. Mr. Dietrick says the cost of construction and equipment of the Siberian railrouds exceqds $500,000,000, an average of $25,000 the mil6. The trans-Siberian railroad and its branches not only pay, he says, but have furnished enough in profits of operation to carry out new construction. He says Siberia is a country very much like Alaska, and certainly is no better place for the location of rail lines. "Alaska with a railroad starting from some good harbor and built across the country to the Bering straits will serve to open it up and develop that vast domain, just like the railroads have been the means of PRELIMINARY BOUT.

Fearing Zapata's rebels, should they enter Mexico City, Sir Lionel Carden, British ambassador, has or dered nil British subjects to leave Mexico City. German ships which carried arms for Huorta to bo delivered at Pucr.to Mexico, have returned with their car goes undelivered. Walter C. Whiff en, representative of tho Associated Press; a Mr. Sutton, photographer for tho Washington Post; Oliver M. Hueffer of the London Express, and another English corre spondent named Rourke, were arrest ed and imprisoned at Mexico City, but wore later liberated after a protest by tho British ambassador. Dr. Ryan, representing the state de partment, who was sentenced to death at Aguascalientes, has reached Puerto Mexico, and with 600 other American refugees, has sailed for the United States. Huerta is said to have mined the principal buildings in Mexico City for the purpose of blowing them up and wrecking the city when it falls. W.hile suffering from sunstroke. Colonel Taggart's orderly, named Parks, entered the Mexican lines with two magnificent horses. He is said to have been executed. Directly after the occupation of Vera Cruz, Huerta sent Hernando Farias, Alebrto Gonzales and Eduardo Alfredo Arizmendi to Zapata to make overtures for an alliance. As answer Zapata killed Farias and Arizmendi and cut off the ears of Gonzales. Cuornavaca, forty miles from Mex ico City, has been taken by Zapata. peopling and developing Canada and Siberia," says M,r. Dietrick. "Alaska's wheat and other farm products will within a year after the railroad is in operation bring in more revenue to the farmers who will fol low the construction of the railroad than the cost of the railroad. The crops will increase, mining and other business proceed with rapid strides, and tHere is no doubt that the reve nues will meet operating, upkeep costs and fixed charges and furnish profits which can be devoted to branch line construction. Many parts of this vast domain will soon require rail connec tion with the main line." The original purchase price of Alaska more than half a century ago was $7,200,000. The government has spent, all told, on account of Alaska, $35,816,074. The production in Alaska from 1867 to 1011 was $429,523,630. Revenues of one kind or another paid j into the federal treasury from Alaska during this period aggregated $17, 117,354. Since 1911 the value of Alaskan products has increased suf ficiently to make the total more than a half billion dollars. With a ruil road constructed cfrom one of the open harbors on the southern coast to the interior of Alaska, the annual production of Alaska should increase by leaps and bounds. Alaska is said to have more coal than Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio, more copper than Michigan' and Arizona, more gold than California and Colorado, more tin than Wales and more fish than all other American waters combined. The area of tilla ble land in Alaska has been variously estimated at from 2,000,000 to 9,700, 000 acres. PLACE FOR HIM. "JoYies, tho lawyer, is becoming deaf, is henot?" "Yes.

TTTITTI the coming of tho first VV warm days and the call of the- what la known In tho Juvenile court of tho great eltiea as tho "runaway era." ' Every day there are long lists of boys and even girls who have dis appeared from their homes, leaving their parents distracted with worry, and who are usually found not so many miles away, enduring the dis comforts of night out of doors and tho uncertain meals with unconcern, because they ore tasting of the de lights of freedom and wandering, for which they have longed. It is a real wanderlust that fills the youthful hearts during the spring, a desire for the unknown, to bo outj under the stars and free to roam I where they will, but when they are j brought home they cannot always ex plain this Intangible something that throbs in their little hearts and they cover it up with sullen and contra dictory statements. It isn't only the lads and lassies ' whose homes are shadowed by pov- j erty, or whoso parents are unkind' that run away. Nor is it always big I boys, for the wanderlust creeps Into j tho hearts of old and young alike, I and the wise mother will prepare fori It and let the children taste of the ' Joys of outdoor life as much as pos sible to keep it from reaching the point when in sheer desperation they run away. Ah! you grown folks, didn't you ever, when you were little, sit on the front step and plan how you would run away and come back "years and years later," laden with, gold and fame, to your rejoicing family? Didn't you ever on the first warm days, when the trees were budding ana the air was heavy with spring lassitude, fret at the studies that kept you indoors and sigh to be up and away and wandering far afield? You know you did, so did I, so did all of us la whom the spirit of Im agination dwells, and, for that rea son you must realize that Just that same lure exists for your boys today. The lure that something that lies beyond the, end of the home street, beyond the circle of 'the school and the homes of his playmates some thing that Is called "the world," and which, seen through boyish eyes, is like the mighty rainbow with the pot of gold at the end. If In pursuit of it they run away, however, the glamour fades, but then they ore generally afraid to come home or do not know the way, and so the grimy blotters of the police courts record their names among the missing. It can all be avoided if the wise mother gives a boy or girl a chance to go out into the world of out of doors. Send them Into the woods to search for the first flowers. Encourage them to form a little "walking club," or let them have a real Indian camp some place, and cook and "mess about" a bonfire and come home dirty and happy and tired. After all, the only thing needed is to keep your own youth in your mem ory, for no matter how fast the years slip by, the boys and girls have the same wistful longings now as we had in the years of long ago. Creamed Eggs Boll six eggs 20 minutes. Make one pint of cream sauce. Have six slices of toast on a hot dish.

Robinson of New York City, editor of several medical publications and president of the American Society of Medical Sociol ogy, declares that piano playing ie one of the best cures for nervous ness; in fact, a real preventive. "David," he says, "did excellent work when ho soothed Saul's murder ous propensities with the aid of selec tions on the harp, hut more good would have been accomplished if he could have prevailed upon Saul to take lessons from him and play the harp himself. "A tuneful melody, a satisfying chord, detracts the nervous person's at tention from the cause of his worry. A dreamy mood is Induced In which the little tragedies of life no longer appear quite so gruesome or so over whelming."

In connection with the death of Dr. Whltelaw of Kirkintilloch, Scotland, an interesting story is told of his early career. Being called up one night he was walking along with the messenger when he was set upon and knocked down in a lonely part of the road. His pockets were rifled and he was left lying on the road severely In jured. One of- the articles stolen was a clinical thermometer with which he had that evening taken the tempera ture of a patient. He remembered the temperature registered, also that he had not shaken down the mercury before putting the thermometer back in his pocket nnd he communicated these facts to the police. Some time afterward a thermometer registering the identical temperature was discovered in a pawnshop In Glasgow and by this means the police were enabled to track the doctor' B Bailants and to tfrrest them. 1HE "FEDERATION OF THE WORLD" Ex-President Taft, in a lecture in New York, nrndirf-prl Hint- wriliin Kfl years there will be a World's High court to settle an uitterences between nations, just as the ordinary courts settle differences between individuals.
