THACHER MEDICINE CO.,
At the Conference Between Generals
Scott and Obregon Carranza
Agent Chooses "Lesser of
El Paso.—Marked progress toward
an agreement was made by the Amer-
ican and Mexican conferees consider-
ing United States troops dispositions
in Mexico, according to unolhcial but
authoritative advices. It is believed
now the matter may be threshed out
in the next day or so. The proceed-
ing was due to the fact that General
Obregon had concluded there was no
possibility of altering the intention ot
the Washington government not to
withdraw General Pershing's expedi-
tionary forces immediately.
The attitude of the Mexican min-
ister of war is described by a Mexican
official who took part in the first con-
ference in Juarez who is closely con-
versant with the entire situation and
Employed Famous Tactics.
At this meeting, which began at noon
and lasted well Into the night, General
Scott is reported to have employed the
tactics which he successfully employed
in his negotiations with Villa, the Ger-
onimo incident and other affairs and
which won for him the reputation of
being the official peacemaker of the
He is said to have indicated to Gen-
eral Obregon these things:
"That the United States is the best
friend Mexico has.
After Villistas Only.
"That President Wilson only wishes
to see Mexico rid of Villistas and as
soon as this is accomplished the Amer-
ican troops will be withdrawn.
"That it appears the attitude of the
United States government has not
been properly understood since, far
from seeking intervention, that is the
very thing it wishes to avoid;
"That, finally, the majority of the
American people and even the military
are in accord with President Wilson's
desire to avoid intervention."
Taking Raid Precautions.
In addition to giving General Obre-
gon this information General Scott as-
sured him the United States govern-
ment had been informed the Villista
element still is very strong in Chihua-
hua and Durango and it felt that it
must take every precaution against
the repetition of such incidents as the
Washington, he Is asserted to havq
said, planned to pursue to the end the
task it had begun by sending General
Pershing Into Mexico and naturally
desired the co-operation of the Car-
ranza government since that would
hasten the day of withdrawal.
Concentration at Colonia Dublan.
It was reported in authoritative
quarters that any agreement calling
for the co-operation of Mexican and
American troops in the dispersal of
the Villista groups would provide that
General Pershing's forces should con
centrate at Colonia Dublan, the present
base near Casas Grandes.
It was pointed out that this spot was |
well placed as to climate, that it had I
an abundant water supply and that it |
would be easy from there to maintain I

Carranza Troops Blocked.
Douglas, Ariz.—An attempt of a body
of defacto cavalry, the advance guard
of General Arnulfo Gomes to enter Chi-
huahua through Pulpito pass was
blocked by American troops, accord-
ing to a reliable report received here
from American sources.
The Mexicans, according to the re-
port, were under command of Col.
Jesus Maria Aguierre, and had pene-
trated eighteen miles into the pass
before their movement was discovered
by a United States military aeroplane
which reported the presence of the
defacto troops to the American com-

silk. Gather top edge with pink twine
and draw to a circle. Roast before

To Pass Compulsion Bill.
London.—Premier Asquith has an-
nounced to an expectant parliament
that the government had at last agreed
on the much disputed recruiting ques-
tion and had decided to introduce a
bill for immediate general military
compulsion for the duration of the
war. The p'remier claimed the condi-
'Ion he had all along stipulated as the
only justification for such a step,
namely, general consent of the nation
now had been obtained.
Teach Things of Value.
Where one has never made the ex-
periment of leaving off coffee and
drinking Postuin, it is still easy to
learn something about it by reading
the experiences of others.
Drinking Postum is a pleasant way
out of coffee troubles. A Penn. man i
"My wife was a victim of nervous-
ness, weak stomach and loss of ap- |
petite for years; and although we re-
sorted to numerous methods for re-
lief, one of which was a change from
coffee to tea, It was all to no purpose.
'"We knew coffee was causing the
trouble but could not find anything to
take its place until we tried Postum.
Within two weeks after she quit coffee
and began using Postum almost all of
her troubles had disappeared as If by
magic. It was truly wonderful. Her
nervousness was gone, stomach trou-
ble relieved, appetite Improved and,
above all, a night's rest was complete
"This Bounds like an exaggeration,
as it all happened so quickly. Each
day there was improvement, for the
Postum was undoubtedly strengthen-
ing her. Every particle of this good
work Is due to drinking Postum In
place of coffee." Name given by Pos-
tum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
Postum eomes In two forms:
Postum Cereal—the original form—
must be well boiled. 15c and 25c pkgs.
Instant Postum—a soluble powder—
dissolves quickly In a cup of hot wa-
ter, and, with cream and sugar, makes
a delicious beverage Instantly. 30c
nd 60c tins.
Both forms are equally delicious
and cost about the same per cup.

(FROM THE PEORIA JOURNAL.)
| The Nebraska State Journal calls at-
| tention to the fact that Uncle Sam's
| opening of a 4,000-acre tract In the
North Platte Irrigation district for set-
tlement practically winds up the "free
| land distribution" of tho nation. It
"Free or cheap land has been
j the American safety valve. A
population straining for self-bet-
j terment has had its own remedy—
j to go west and grow up with the
j country. With the government
j reduced to advertising an opening
ot forty-three farms, the safety
valve may be considered forever
closed. The expansive energy for-
merly exerted outward, must hero-
after work Itself out intensively.
Increasing !an-i speculation, with
rapidly rising prices of land and
proportionately increasing dissat-
isfaction among the landless would
seem Inevitable. Tha tone of our
politics and the intensity of our
social problems cannot but be vi-
tally changed under the strain of
dealing internally with a social
pressure which hitherto haswhad
the wilderness to vent itself upon.
" 'Land hunger' will soon become a
reality in this rapidly growing country
and the constant pressure of popula-
| tion. increasingly higher than the ratio
j of production, is bound to bring us
j face to face with economic problems
| that we have heretofore considered re-
J mote. The far-sighted statesman and
| publicist must devote his thought
earnestly to the consideration of these
| questions if we are to escape the ex-
tremes which curBe the older nations
| of the world."
I In the above will be found one ot
j the reasons that the Canadian Govern-
j ment is offering 160 acres of land free
j to the actual settler. There Is no
dearth of homesteads of this size, and
I the land is of the highest quality, be-
j lng such as produces yields of from 30
J to 60 bushels of wheat per acre, while
! oats run from fifty to over hundred
bushels per acre. It Is not only a mat-
i ter of free grants, but In Western Can- |
' ada are also to be had other lands at
: prices r--"-'-- from $12 to $30 per j
acre, ti- ui^orence In price be'ng
largely a matter of location and dis-
tance from railway. If one takes Into
consideration the scarcity of free
grant lands in the United States it Is
not difficult to understand why there
has been most material advances in
the price of farm lands.
A few years ago, land that now sells
for two hundred dollars an acre In
Iowa, could have been bought for sev-
enty-five dollars an acre or less. The
Increased price Is warranted by the
inn eased value of the product raised
on these farms. The lands that today I
can be had in Western Canada at the I
low prices quoted will In a less time |
than that taken for the Iowa lands to I
increase, have a proportionate In- |
crease. In Nebraska the lands that j
sold for sixteen to twenty dollars per
acre seven years ago, find a market at
one hundrod and seventy-five dollars I
an acre, for the same reason given for |
tbe increase in Iowa lands. Values
In these two States, as well as in oth-
ers that might be mentioned, show
that Western Canada lands are going
at a song at their present prices. In
many cases in Western Canada today,
there are American settlers, who real-
ize this, and are placing a value of
Bixty and seventy dollars an acre on
their improved farms, but would sell
| only because they can purchase un-
improved land at such a low price that
in another few years they would have
equally as good farms as they left or
such as their friends have in the Unit,
The worth of the cro>i grown In
Western Canada Is of higher value
than those of the States named, so why
should the land not be worth fully as
much. Any Canadian Government
Agent will be glad to give you infor-
mation as to homestead lands orwhers
you can buy.—Advertisement
