Washington—Consular dispatches re-
ceived by the Washington government
from various points in Mexico indi-
cate that while temporarily disorgan-
ized by the defeat sustained at Celaya,
General Villa and his forces have by
no means been removed as a forinid
able factor in Mexico's civil war.
Officials at the state departnent are
guarding closely the reports received
from consuls in the territory occupied
by General Villa, as it is not tjesired
to give out military information, but
it is known that plans for another bat
tie with General Obregon, the Car-
ranza commahder, are proceeding rap
Villa's chief difficulty, it was learned
officially, is his lack of ammunition
and until he replenishes his supply he
probably will not risk another engage-
ment. When he met Obregon at Cei
aya, Villa had sent forces to attack
Matamoros, Nuevo L,aredo, Tampico
and west coast towns; greatly deplet-
ing his main force. Indications now
are that he intends to concentrate all
these forces in central Mexico for an-
other supTeme effort against Obregoii.
Villa Army Closely Pursued.
The Carranza forces are reported to
be well supplied with ammunition and
pressing the Villa army closely north
of Irapuato. Carranza officials here
claim the Villa movement has been
given a crushing blow from which
It will never recover.
General Dieguez, the dispatches
said, had taken Guadalajara and would
act as Obregon's special guard. Villa's
losses at Celaya were placed at 6,000
killed and 5,000 missmg.
In the meantime many rumors of
counter revolutionary movements have
been current, though they are not cred-
ited by the American government.
Many former sympathizers of Huerta
have been in Washington, but most of
them deny that Huerta intends to take
the field again. Manuel Calero, former
ambassador to Washington, under the
Madero administration, visited the Ar-
gentine and Chilean ambassadors dis-
cussing the Mexican situation in gen-
eral. It was said his visit was without

How Englishman Raised Money
New Idea for the Collection of Reli.ef

Course No One Spoke of
I came across Crawshaw in the road
unexpectedly. I would rather meet a
rate collector than Crawshaw. He is
the most dangerous beggar in Eng-
He would induce a blind crossing
sweeper to guarantee half a crown a
week to a Belgian relief fund. If only
he were chancellor of the exchequer
people would almost like paying in-
"Good morning, old man," I said,
trying to dash past him.
"Just the man I was looking for,"
said Crawshaw. "I want you."
"My dear fellow," I began, "I can't
"I don't want your money," inter-
"Well, you've got all my spare blan-
kets, underclothing and old novels."
"I want you to come to a little din-

I looked at him suspiciously. "You
intend to entice me into your house
and produce a subscription list."
"My dear fellow, I'll do nothing of
the sort. It's just that I want & few
of my friends to have a good time.
Look in about 7:30. You'll come?
I found a genial company assembled
when I arrived.
"Now we're all here," said Craw-
shaw. Come in to dinner, you men."
Two or three guests confided to me
on the way that Crawshaw owed us a
good dinner after all he had got out
We seated ourselves at the table,
and then I noticed an empty bowl in
the middle. It bore this inscription:
"Anyone desiring to make a remark
about the war will drop a shilling in
for the sodlers' comfort fund."
"My Idea," said our smiling host.
"We want a nice, convivial dinner
with an evening off from the subject.
We shall returfl to it tomorrow with
fresh intelligence and enthusiasm aft-
er a brief relaxation."
"I turned'to my neighbor, Spoor, and

gan on the weather. "Bit windy, isn't
"Good anti-Zeppelin weather, I call
it," said the incautious Spoor.
"A shilling, please. Spoor," remarked
Rogers was across the table. I
could see him fidgeting with knives
and salt oellars. All at once he broke
out: "In our platoon today there was
a man missing, and in consequence
a blank file. Now in such a case—"
"You pay a shilling," interposed
For a moment an awful silence pre-
vailed. I could think of nothing ex-
cept the war- All at once William

"I met an officer on leave from the
front today," he began, "and he was
telling me just what Joffre is up to."
Now Chapman is nothing if not a
strategist. He listened with impa-
tience to the exposition of Joffre's
idea, and then,, hurling half a sov-
ereign into the bowl, proved conclu-
sively that Williams' informant was
absolutely in the wrong.
It was at this point that I reraem-

heard from Italy's mobilization. !

I appealed, "will you compromise? A
sovereign each for the dinner?"
"Done," said Crawshaw.
"Good. I always mistrusted you.
I came without a penny. Lend me a
"I'm not in this compromise," cried
Chapman. "I've said all I've got to
say. You'll run me In for nothing
It was at the end of the meal that
Crawshaw rose. "Thanks awfully,
you fellows. There's twelve pounds
twelve in the bowl. Eleven of us
have given a sovereign, and Chapman

"Crawshaw," grumbled Chapman, "I
know you've a family. I know you're
too old. I know you're physically dis-
qualified. But you ought to go to the
front. Not only would it raise the
spirits of the poor people you leave
behind here, but your very presence
in the trench with a subscription list
would make the enemy run."—London

There s a Reason—in fact, a number of reasons.
Grape-Nuts is a concentrated food, hence a small portion goes a long way.
It is made of wheat and barley, and contains all the nutriment of these grains,
including those invaluable mineral salts so often lacking in ordinary food, but which
are indispensable for normal growth and maintenance of body and brain. One great
£lVcn'n ,or'^nating Grape-Nuts was to supply this lack of mineral elements, and it
fulfills its purpose admirably.
Grape-Nuts is a delicious food, and digests quickly, generally in about one hour.
Compare this with the 2\ to 3 hours required by bread.
