PTTERTA MEXICO, July 18. Unwill
ingness to leave-behind any friends
who want to accompany mm into
and failure to select a vessel to carry
them beyond the reach of the constitu
tionalists, has resulted In the post
ponement by President Huerta of his
departure for perhaps several days.
With contemptuous disregard for his
enemies in the interior, who 'would
shove him off Mexican soil If they were
able General Huerta shrugged his
shoulders and laughed at the difficul
ty, which will force him to remain in
the country some days longer; but most
of the members of the party snowed
much disappointment because they
could not get out before tomorrow.
A' message received late tonight from
President Carbajal refused the use of
the Mexican gunboats for that purpose.
The message explalnd that it was not
deemed wise at this time that the Mex
ican warships should be used for such
a purpose, but said the government
would pay for the use of any vessel
that Huerta might charter.
People Show Only Curiosity.
Huerta spent a dull day. the greatest
break In its monotony being a call on
the captain of the German cruiser
Dresden. A small crowd gathered to
watch him alight from the train and go
aboard the' cruiser lying a short dis
tance out, out when the stubby old man
in plain clothes, accompanied by Gen
eral Blanquet In full uniform and three
members of his staff, walked to the
landing where the Dresden launch was
waiting, there was no evidence of emo
tion other than curiosity.
Someone lifted up his voice in a thin
"viva," but the answering call was
thinner stllL The spectators were the
idle element, and they were there to
see, and nothing more.
Formality Wholly Lacking.
Huerta went over the side with the
requisite number of sailors at the rail,
but there was no salute. Anything re-

Kansas farmers will hold 100,000,000

of 1913. according to W. H. Mitchell,
National vice-president of the Farmers'
Society of Equity.
Mr. Mitchell is organizing the farm
ers of Kansas and urging them to hold
their immense crop for higher prices
Sixty-cent wheat In Kansas has be

holding the grain. Mr. Mitchell saio.

Grain bins of frame and cement con

being piled on the ground by farmers
who refuse to accept present prices
The Farmers' Society of Equity Is
campaigning for dollar wheat, but the

Harvest Hands Savin Money,
The money order sections of the
nostoffices In Kansas
nrove that this year is an exception
with the harvest band, as well as the
wheat-growing farmer, for the harvest
hand is sending his money home, inie
Is probably due to two causes. One Is
that the harvest hand has learned the
nf monev. and the other, the
farmer has learned that he must pro
tect his helpers to be sure of getting
them when they are needed.
For years the popular diversion with
a certain crowd of men who followed
the harvest was "harvesting the har
vest hand." Gamblers began in Kan
sas and worked with the harvest to
the Canadian border. Some of them
even worked in the fields, to be better
enabled to separate the harvest hand
from his money. There was every sort
of game that would be easily trans
ported and quickly hidden. The lay
outs were not of the fancy kind, but
they brought quick action on the
wagers made, and the quick action re
sulted in shifting the money from the
worker to the gambler.
