the state prison department is the only

avoid anything savoring of a physical

The arrival 'hero of W. A. Blakely,

HUERTAT0 DECIDE HIS OWN FATE
Little Hope Expressed That Mexican
President Will Yield.
Washington, Aug. 25. The Mexican
situation, as viewed by United States
plTiclnls, wll be af Its crisis today or
tomorrow. They believe that unless
President Huerta accepts the Ameri
can mediation proposals Involving his
retirement from office tho negotiations
to all practical effects will be terminat
ed! A high official of the administra
tion put It this way:
Provisional President Huerta has until
Tuesday to accept our plan.
Unless Huerta does give In to the
American demands before President
Wilson begins his address to congress
at noon on Tuesday there is now little
hope amgjiKofllcInls that he will yield
at all or that the present revolution in
tho southern republic will bo settled
peaceably through the good offices of
the United States.
Should Huerta maintain until Tues
day noon his policy of flatly demand
ing recognition by tho United Stntes
nnd flatly refusing any suggestions
not predicted upon this, President Wil
son will give to tho joint session of tho
house and the senate all the Informa
tion on the situation and his own
views as to the duties which devolve
upon the United States.
President Wilson has completed and
discussed with Secretary of State
Bryan the first draft of this address.
Tho president and Secretary Bryan
have, however, kept to themselves the
character of the views to be expressed

"HILLY, THE KID."
Of the many successes in dramatic
plays which have been produced the
past six years, those with, their
scenes laid In tho western country
have appeared to have appealed more
strongly to tho fancy of theatre
goers. One of the best of theso is
"Billy, The Kid," with its ) scenes
placed In the great Southwest, near
the Mexican border, and It Is said
to tell a story that appeals to all
classes of amusement lovers. The
plot Is well conceived, there aro
Innumerable strong dramatic situa
tions and there Is plenty of comedy.
Some of the scenes are said to be
especially realistic and the produc
tion on a very elaborate scale.

"A NO. 1," THE FAMOUS ROVER.
Now Claimed the Fellow is ISeing
Sought for by "Uncle Sam."
The Susquehanna (Pa.) Transcript
has the following regarding "A. No.
1," the famous tramp, who visited
this city on several occasions and 'has
acquaintances here among some of
the best people:
Tramp "A. No. 1," known to fame
for his life work of sending home
boys who start on tha road, has, It Is
claimed, offended the law. It isn't
usual for "A. No. 1" to transgress
the law. He never did when he was
in Susquehanna, and he has been
here, often in his peregrinations of
500,000 miles or more during his
Perhaps he really didn't know that
he was offending the law when he
placed his "moniker" on the Hart
ford, Conn., post office building, but
Uncle Sam is strict about such things
and the federal authorities at Hart
ford are looking for him.
"A No. 1" is a tramp, but he has
always kept within the law. He has
respect of police, railroad detectives,
town constables, and what William
Allen White calls "the authorities
Sitting in the shade of water
tanks along the steel ways or beside
bridges and fences, "A No. 1" has
perused literature. He has read and
he has written. Ho has written at
least one book a year, giving Inti
mate pictures of tramp life.
The proceeds of theso books the
tramp puts to good use. Many a boy
with the wanderlust strong within
him has been turned back from the
road by "A No. 1." That is the life
work that "A No. lhas chosen. He
watches for lads that leave home
and he tells them the real truth
about the road that seemed so fair
to them. And if they have no money
he shares his own with them and
sends them back to their mothers.
Ho has traveled half a million
miles at an expense of ?7.G1, it is
said. Not long ago he was In Sus
quehanna and railroad men here
treated him well.
Everywhere he goes he puts his
cabalistic 1'moniker." This is a cus
tom with him, a sacred rite, but
when It comes to putting such a
mark on Uncle Sam's official build
ing It Is an offense. So "A No. 1"
has. committed tho first crime that
he has been known to commit.
That snlittinrr Headache will
get almost instant relief if you
take a Neura Powder, io and
