Cranberry Juice Falls
From “ Water Wagon”
Portland Cranberry culture, which
thrives at North Beach, Wash., In the
district served by the fifth division of
the O. W. It. & N. company, has a
most consistent booster in the person
of "Captain” Build, superintendent of
the division.
On a trip to Ilwaco last week "Cap­
tain” Budd was presented with four
bottle* of the cranberry liquid. He in
turn gave the beverage to friends re­
siding at the Hotel Imperial, urging
them to parake thereof frequently,
as it waa |x>sitivA)y non-intoxicating,
was a rejuvenator, carried only good
effects, and in general was the coming
“ dry” favorite.
But when kept in the hotel tempera­
ture for a few day* the cranberry juice
became fieeish, switched from a non-
hilarious fluid to a roisterous, foment­
ing, capricious extract and blew corks
and contents over walls and ceilings.

Washington, I). C.— Although Gen­
eral Carranza had not replied up to
Tuesday night to the demand of the
United States that he either ratify or
repudiate the protocol drawn by the
Mexican-American joint commission,
the expiration o f the time lim it was
not made the occasion fo r formally de­
claring the negotiations at an end.
While the time expired at midnight,
officials were inclined to take into con­
sideration that a reply might have
been delayed and indicated that a fa v­
orable reply, even though a day or
more late, would not be rejected, inas­
much as an adjustment of internation­
al difficulties was the chief object.
Refusal to accept the terms o f the
agreement, under which troops would
be withdrawn from Chihuahua, means
the closing o f negotiations through the
joint commission for adjustment o f the
questions at issue between the United
States and the de facto government ot
What effect the new situation then
presented would have on the policy of
the United State* is not known, but it
was said at the State department that
any further move would be made
through the usual channels and not by
the commission, which for more than
three months attempted to effect an
amicable settlement.
Dr. John R. Mott, one o f the Am eri­
can commissioners, conferred
Secretary Lansing in the course o f the
day, and both expressed the hope that
Carranza’s reply would be favorable.
The more general opinion among
government officials, however,
that the Mexican executive would not
alter his repeated declaration that the
American troops must be withdrawn
unconditionally and any further discus­
sion o f international subjects could not
take place while foreign troops violat­
ed the sovereignty of Mexico.
I f Carranza persists in his refusal
there w ill be nothing for the members
o f the joint commission to do but to
hold one last conference to close the
record and say good-bye.

Villa Takes San Luis Potosi.
El Paso — A report was received
Wednesday by sources known to be
close to Francisco Villa and by govern­

captured San Luis Potosi Tuesday.
Many foreigners who left Torreon be­
fore V illa attacked that town recently
went to San Luis Potosi. No details
were available.
San Luis Potosi is southeast o f Tor­
reon on the National railroad line be­
tween Aguas Calientes and Tampico.
Tampico is believed to be V illa 's ob­
jective in order to obtain a port
through which he can import arms,
ammunition and suppiles.
V illa was
reported to be between Torreon and

preparing to launch an attack against

In anticipation of this attack. Gen­
eral Francisco Murguir was reported
to have ordered General Francisco
Gonzales, former commander in Juar­
ez, to proceed south at once with his
entire brigade to reinforce the Chi­
