Scott and Funston appeared determined and at Unjos spoke animatedly, Another Meeting Likely. Sub-secretary Amador, after the conference, announced that no decision had been reached and that another meeting probably would be held. Much Interest was taken tonight In word reaching here from'Marathon regarding a story told by a minister, name unknown, who reached there, returning from an automobile tour through the district raided last Friday night. According to this man's utory, the body of one of the bandits was found near Glenn Springs Sunday and on It were papers which Identified him as a Carranza follower. No further report came to Gen. Funston from the raided district In the Big Bend country. The only news of the day was the arrival of two troops of cavalry from Fort Clark and two from El Paso at Marathon, where they started southward on a nlnety-flve-mlle march. _ Gen. Funston refused to Indicate wheui- er a second expeditionary force Is to go Into Mexico near Boqulllas. Considerable significance was placed In his reply to a question asked him. He was asked If a report from Washington that troops may already have crossed waa true. "Not Yet" Over Line. He replied that he believed they had "not yet" gone over.

WASHINGTON, May 8.--President Wilson* went to the circus tonight.

"When the party entered-tho^ big tent the crowd of several thousand rose and cheered. As he passed one of tho rings the President took off his hat and laughingly made a motion as if to throw it in.

Burglars entered the hardware store of Charles Koehrlng, 878 Virginia avenue, sometime between the closing of the store Saturday night and yesterday morning by breaking out a glass, in a roar window. The intruders made their exit through a rear door which they opened from tho inside. Koohrlng, the police nald, was out of the city and It could not be learned whether anything was taken.

Scott .and Obregon. In the.meantime, both at the War and State Department It was stated officially that Gen. Funston has full authority to send his troops across tha border on any hot trail. Secretary Baker conferred with President Wilson this evening, but he said later there had been no developments In the situation. He declined to discuss wjiat steps had been taken by Gen. Funsr ton or what recommendations he had made. Only meager details of the raid have, reached Washington, The latest was a consular report from Eagle Pass saying that three civilians and three soldiers had been killed and two soldiers wounded and that the four remaining men of the'little squad of cavalrymen were missing. The missing troopers may have Joined -the psose which folowed the trail of the bandits toward-the border. · No More Troops in Sight. Officials would not comment on border advices, saying Gen. Funston had re- strengthened. The question of catling out a portion of the National Guard Is not under immediate consideration, however, and as the only other means of adding materially to the border guard would be to employ coast artillery troops as infantry for that purpose, there Is nothing to indicate that Gen. Funston's force is to be increased, Senator Borah issued a statement urging, that additional troops be ordered to the border and that any man or party in Mexico which sought to embarrass the task of protecting American Interests' be treated as enemies of"~tHe~eoiTntry. :~ "It must be apparent to any one at all familiar with the situation," said the senator, "that Carranza can not restore order in Mexico; he can not establish a go-vernment, and what concerns us most, he can not protect tho .border." Tho Glehn Springs raid has eerved to make clear the attitude of the State Department regarding Gen. Carranza's note suggesting the withdrawal of the Amerl. can expedition. It was stated officially that the agreement suggested by Gen. Carranza In the first exchanges of notea for a reciprocal right to cross the border on any recurrence of the Columbus rad, still was assumed to he in force. Only the status of the present expedition Is involved, it was said, in the present diplomatic situation and the Scott- Obregon military discussion at El Paso, The right to pursue outlaws who engaged In subsequent raids was clearly stated in the original proposal from Carranza, and If Funston's men go across in pursuing tho Glonn Spring raiders, they will be covered by that agreement, regardless of the status of Gen, "Pershlng'a expedition. ' City of Mexico Notified by Raid. Secretary Lansing forwarded representations to Carranza through Special Agent Rodgers at tho City of Mexic» last night when the news of the Glenn Springs raid was confirmed. The do facto government was notified of the facts of the raid and it was indicated that Mr. Rodgers was\ Instructed -to inform Mexican officials that the United States assumed that they would take, prompt steps to capture and punish the raiders. The region below the border from Glenn Springs, and from which the, bandits are said to have- come, Is Included in that over Which Cafranssa has declared himself to have control. No additional information as to the Identity of the bandits was received. Beyond the report of the men of the Httla garrison that cheers for both Villa and Carranm were heard there is nothing as yet to say to what faction they belong. MISSING TROOPERS RETURN.

It was learned here that after the raid on Glenn Springs the bandits split their forces Into two bodies, one holding toward the Rio Grande and fording the river at Boqulllaa and the other, about forty In number, working southeast and reoroeolng the river at San Vicente. It was here that they were observed by a Mrs. Hart, a school' teacher, who reported *.hat the bandits, mounted, crossed the Ri Grande about 6 o'clock Saturday night ind disappeared into Mexico. Hair Often Ruined By Washing With Soap Soap should be used very. carefully, if you want to keep your hair looking its .best. Most soaps and prepared shampoos contain top much alkali. This dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle antf ruins it. The best thing for steady use is just ordinary mulsifled cocoanut oil (which is pure and greaseless) and is better than the most expensive soap or anything else you can use. One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp thoroughly. Simply moisten the' hair with water a,nd rub it in. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, which rinses out' easily, removing every particle of dust, dht, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair tii'e ''scalp "soft" and .the hair fine and silky,, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to manage.
