Tho- hour was sad, I left the maid,
A llno'riifo farewell taking,
tTor aighs and tears my steps delayed,
1 thought her heart was breaking;
In hurried words her name 1 .litest,
1 breathed the vows that bind me,
And to my heart in anguish pressed
The girl I left behind me.
Then to the South we lore away,
To win a name in atorVi
And there, where dawns the sun of day.
There dawned our sun of glory;
Both biased in noon on Richmond's height,
Where in the post assigned me
I shared the glory of that fight,
Sweet girl I left behind me.
The hope of final victory
Within my bosom burning
Is mingling with sweet thoughts of thee
And of my fond returning;
But should I ne'er return again,
Still worth thy love thou'lt find me,
Dishonor's breath shall never stain
The name I'll leave behind me.
Full many a name our 6mtier bore
Of former deeds of daring.
But they wero of tho days of yore,
In which we had no sharing;
But now, our laurels freshly won,
With the old ones shall entwined be,
Still worthy of our sires each son,
Sweet girl I left behind me.

" CHIHUAHUA CITY, Mex., June 24.
"Mexico is a civilized country and will
wage war in a civilized manner."
General Jacinto B. Trevino, Carranza
commander at Chihuahua City, made
this assertion todny in denying reports

nor will they be," he said. "That is not

WASHINGTON, Juno 24. The war

These decisions were reached at a confer

pending the receipt of additional reports
from General Pershing and officers who

sacre. It has been definitely determined to hold
General Carranza responsible for the at

will be called sharply to account as soon
as the complete report of what transpired
at that place Is at hand, and will be
