News from Mexico states that Bri- } tish and German refugees are crowd* . ing into Vera Cruz, and that extraor* dinary demonstrations against Ameri ca are taking place. In many towns the Stars and Stripes have been tram* pled in the dust, and all manner oi insults have been offered to the na> lion. The position is regarded as extreme ly critical, as the whole nation has risen agahist the United States. Crowds of Mexicans parade the streets of the various towns, shouting "Death to America!" The Mexican newspapers are inflam ing the, public ■with details of imag inary battles''-in which-Americans •in* variably lose. The censorship of outside news is very keen.

LATE CABLES. "HERALD" SPECIAL SERVICE. (PER REUTER.) PREPARING FOR WAR. NO FORMAL DECLARATION YET. AMERICAN SENTIMENT. WASHINGTON.'26th Anril. A formal declaration of war between the United States and Mexico 1ms not yet been made. Every available war ship of the United States navy, how* ever, is now bound for Mexico. Tho President is making unexampled pre parations for war, which is recognis ed to be inevitable. The Texas Guards have been ordered to patrol the en tire border, as little reliance can be placed on General Villa's protestations of friendship. • Throughout the United States sentl ment strongly favors war. The indi cations point to an outburst of war fe ver similar to that preceding the Spa nish-American conflict. The House of Representatives almost wholly favora a war, and is likely to mako repre* sentations to that effect to Dr. Wil son.

THE MAN WHO WILL NOT PROPOSE. The despair ot the mother with daughters to many, the thorn in the flesh to their fathers, the very real tragedy to ihu girl whose heart lie tias won with no oOlcial title to haVe» done so, the man who will not propose Is a blot upon the race of creation, a being to ue as speedily nnd sternly crushed out of existence as may be, tor procrastination—owii besetting sin—must never be exhibited in deal ing svith him. 4 The man who will not propose is ohe ot the strikingly bud products of modern fashions. Ho "was an absolute impossibility iu the days when papa's consent bad to be gained ere a gal lant dare proceed to seriously court a lass. More than two danccs in an eveuing, an offered bouquet, the most casual homage, would rouse a watchful rather, and "What are your intentions, young man?" utterly annihilated the impossible gentleman who might not nave proposed.
