Turkish city of Iotlp, in Macedonia,
which, lieu 5 miles to the southeast
of UpUub. it Is said that, the Turk

Speech This Week.
Oyster Bay, N. Y., Oct 28. Colonel
Pooievelt's flfty-fourth birthday went
by very quietly. Only the members
cl his Immediate family sat down to
the anniversary dinner. It had been
generally made known tht he was not
well enough to receive visitors, so
that few disturbed htm.
One of the many presents which
marked the day for the colonel was
a canvas, the gift of an unknown Bos
Another gift which the colonel ex
hibited with pride was a large paint
ing of a bull moose. It is the work
of Carl nungiti3, the well-known pain
ter of b! game, and was executed
Feveral years ago.
Of the scores of congratulatory tel
egrams recelrcd, one from John I
Rulllvan seemed especially to appeal
to the colonel. It read: "Every good
wish to you on your fifty-fourth birth
day, and God's blessing as well all
jour life." The colonel lost no tlmo
In acknowledging It This Is his re
ply: '"Good luck to you, John. Am
tery much pleased by your telegram."

campaigning save the one Wednesday
