TEXAS BORDER PATROL

American Troops Fired On, But Pur

Brownsville, Tex.-The American
cavalry patrol and about half a o,,zen
Mexicans had a running fight Sunday
near I.a Feria. about thirty miles up
the lisj (Grande from Browns\ihie.
The Mexicans tried to ambush tthe
Americans, but failed. There were no
known casualtvs on either side.
Major Edward Anderson of the
Twchlth Cavalry, in enarge of patrol
district along the river front about
La Feria, reported that Lieutenant
John A. Considine of Seattle. Wash..
and three men of the Sixth Cavalry,
while on patrol, saw the Mexicans
ahead. Considine counted three. His
men thought they saw two more hid
ing in the brush. These Mexicans
opened fire at short range when the
cavalrymen suddenly came upon
them around a curve in the road.
Lieutenant Considine slipped from
his horse, leading his men to the road
side, and they advanced on the Mexi
cans at a run. The Mexicans ran into
the prickly brush when the Americans
had a long running fight, firing in the
direction of the noise in the brush as
the Mexicans went through. Rein
forcement closed in from several di
rections, but the bandits escaped.
Armed Mexicans, who appeared
from the American sidc of the river to
be bandits, were seen to be gathering
this week near Rio Bravo, Mextei, a
short distance above the place of the
last Mexican raid. Estimates of the
number of these alleged bandits went
as high as 530. Along the river in
that section American army patrols
are strengthened and prepared.
