Yes, I mean what I say. It pre

expel catarrhal discharges in the bron

therefore there would be no cough. Don't
you catch the point?
After the cough begins Peruna will

of the expectoration has been removed is
to do great injury. After the expectora

will stop itself. That is the only proper
way to stop a cough.
Occasionally a cough depends upon an

Tea plantations in Ceylon have been
in existence only 30 years, yet the
annual exports of black tea amount to
nearly $20,000,000 in value. Formerly
coffee constituted Ceylon's main in
dustry, but after a disease of the plant
in 1880 its cultivation was discontin
ued. Many planters, however, re
couped themselves by tea and rubber.
Thanks chiefly to the former article,
the island's old prosperity revived.
Today Ceylon boasts 1,500 plantations.
Plant necessary to tea cultivation is
costly but very labor-saving. The
work itself is not hard; only the cli
mate makes it irksome. What is
wanted mainly of employes is to
watch machinery and feed it from the
stock of tea leaves awaiting treat
ment. The workers are not Singhal
ese, but natives of southern India. A
laborer's wages vary from eight to
sixteen cents a day, while a foreman's
salary averages $200 a month.--Har

Ambassador to Mexico.
Mexico City, by Courier to Vera
Cruz.-It was the federal forces that
precipitated hostilities during the ar
mistice Sunday. Operations were re
sumed without warning and the rebels
fired upon the federals who were seek
ing to advance their lines upon the
west side of the arsenal.
The movement was observed by the
outposts and the word was passed to
Captain Delgado, commander in
charge of the rebels' west wing. He
at once gave orders to check the ad

provoked a return fire from the fed

Immense water mains lying in the
streets ready for installation were

Foreign Diplomats Surprised.
The American ambassador and
other foreign diploamtic rebresenta
tives had received assurance early in
the day that the armistice would be
extended to 8 o'clock Monday night,
as the removal of the foreigners from
the line of fire had not been com
pleted. An accurate approximation of
the number of dead and wounded in
the eight days' fighting is impossible.
Government army officers admit 350
killed and 400 seriously wounded on
the fedelial side. The.Diaz adherents
acknowledge losses of 80 killed and
100 wounded. Ambulances of the Red
Cross Society have ceased attempting
to remove the dead and are devoting
their entire attention to the wounded.
The dead are being gathered by the
city street cleaning department wag
ons and burned.

Code messages and all messages

Nevertheless, several dispatches of

the vigilance of the censorship, and

Diplomatic Messages Through.
The Mexican government was un
able to shut off the official dispatches
of the diplomatic corps, but as these
are sent in cipher, considerable de
lay is being experienced because of
the time occupied in translation, and
the fear is expressed that many
things may occur in the Mexican capi
tal detrimental to the foreign resi
dents before the exact situation is
learned by the home governments.
Brief dispatches giving a general
idea of the situation prior to the fresh
outbreak of hostilities were received
by the censors and allowed to pass
along to their respective destinations,
but the government apparently is de
termined that not a word of the fight
ing which has torn the city asunder
for eight days shall be communicated
to the outside world, if that can be
The government has not only shut
the world off from the City of Mexico,
but, so far as the public is concerned
has shut the City of Mexico off from
the world, including the whole of the
lexican republic. News dispatches
sent Saturday night from the United
States to the City of Mexico were
either refused or held up, the inten
tion evilently being that the residents
in the capital shall not be informed
of the measures which have been un
dertaken by the American and other
governments to protect their interests.
Move in Favor of Diaz.
While Madero has been reiterating
his declaration that conditions in Mex
ico outside of the capital are satisfac
tory, advices from various centers in
dicate that there have been impor
tant movements in favor of Diaz.
Confirmation of the breaking of the
armistice and the resumption of hos
tilities has been received from Laredo,
Mexico, where wire communication
was established with the City of Mex
ico early Sunday afternoon, and again
as late as 9 o'clock Sunday night. On
both occasions the message stated
that a battle was on.
Official advices from Ambassador
Wilson tell of the narrow escape of
the British minister, Francis W.
Strong, from federal bullets while on

Americans Are Leaving.
Hurried preparations were made in
Mexico City Sunday for the flight of
American women and children from
the stricken city to safety within the
borders of the United States.
As soon as the armistice had been
declared, the American embassy staff
and the committee appointed by Am
bassador Wilson began the work of
assembling the panic-stricken women
and children at the embassy. Many
who hitherto had paid no heed to the
warning of the ambassador to leave
the city now were eager to embrace
any measure which meant their de
liverance from the panic which has
followed in the wake of a week's dis
It was pointed out that the easiest
way to safety lay via Vera Cruz, only
a short distance by rail. Once ar
rived at the port of the capital city,
the refugees would have full pr0tec
tion pending continuance of their jour
ney by steamer to American soil, prob
ably Galveston. Three American
dreadnaught already lie at anchor in
Vera Cruz harbor. With the guns of
three sea monsters leveled toward the
city, refugees would have little to
fear, but if necessity should arise the
fugitives could be taken aboard ship.
While preparations for flight of the
women and the younger members of
the American colony were going for
ward, the work of removing all for
eigners from the danger zone was en
tered upon in earnest, and hundreds
sought safety in the vicinity of the
American embassy, where every kind
of a shelter was employed as a place

The following is a list of casualties
to Americans since the revolt in Mex

Ohio, agent for the National Cash
