THE BALKAN STATES
Alt rough the Great Powers hare Com?
manded that the Balkan War Cease,
the Allies do not Cease Firing.
London, March 29.?Although the
great powers have commanded that
the Balkan war cease, the fighting
continues. The allies, taking heart
by success, received the ultimatums
politely and reply that they agree
with these in principle but can not
accept all the detall?.
The spectacle of the six groat pow
ers working in harmony on the dread
ed Near Eastern question is matched
by the equally strange spectacle of
the Balkan states defying them.
Meanwhile the concert of the powers
remains as strong only as its weakest
link, and since Russia can not be ex
pected to use her army and navy
against her Slav brethren to losen
their grip on the Turk, the proceed
ings have been reduced to a diplo
The allies have accepted the powers
peace terms as "a basis of negotia
tions," but cling to their determina
tion to exact an indemnity and refuse
to muzzle their guns until the Turks

allies may march into Constantinople

The Montenegrins are protesting
through the diplomats and the press
and by every means against the pow
ers' decision to lnclude?Scutarl In the
new state Albania. Their argu

privo Montenegro of a city necessary
to its prosperity, to create a new and
The entire Bulgarian cabinet is pro
ceeding to Adrianople with King Fer
dinand, and will celebrate a Te Deum
in the ancient Turkish capital while
the gallant Shukri Pasha and his gen
erals arc prisoners of war in Sofia.
The Bulgarian casualties in the last
day's fighting at Adrianople are esti
mated at 14,000 killed and wounded.
The first regiments which advanced to
the attack lost 50 per cent, of their
officers and men in killed and wound

RURAL ACTORS ARE TALENTED
Humble Thespian* In Poland Depict
Stories With Realism on
Warsaw. Poland.?There has been a
surprising Increase In the number of
peasant theaters, which are making
their appearance In every part of
Poland. These institutions are run al
most entirely by the peasants and are
made to pay. Only pieces dealing with
their own life are attempted and the
result Is most realistic, especially as
the Pole has a strong dramatic In*

the larger cities.
The actors mostly train themselves,
choosing one of the cleverest men In

*?-. - aFir.L-~
.iii hbi? ,
When Planted With tho
LEDBETTER "One Seed"
COMIC in and sco tho only real cotton planter. Tho planter with a
positive, precise forco feed, that will take Huty cotton seed, just na
it comes from the gin. and plant tho seed Inn straight, narrow line?
one at a time, equal distances apart?as regular as buttons on a card.
Other planters can t>e set to plant "thick or thin," but this plnntor
will plant thick?a bushel or more of seed to the acre?without bunching,
or thin-down to a bushel to six acres?without skips.
Bach plant stands alone with its own fow inches of growing room?cuts
the work of chopping down to one-half, ami you can take your own timo
about chopping plants keep on growing ami make stocky, vigorous bushes.
When you plant your cotton with a Ledbetter "One-Seed" Corn and
Cotton Planter?ono ?ecd at a time, evenly spaced -you can plant tho best
seed that money can buy at no more cost than ordinary seed, because nouo
are wasted in useless bunching. And you get 5 bales of cotton on the same
land that grew only 4 before, because there are no skips in the row.
When the Ledbetter "One Seed" Corn and Cotton Planter is set for
planting corn it is strictly a corn umntor, without an equal for that purpose
dropping without fail a single^/^frain at any distance desired from 8 to
?IS inches. And the same Is equally
true when set to plant other seeds,
such as peas, beans, canteloupes,
watermelon, sorghum, millet, oe;.
With peanut attachment it plants peanuts, I i,
or small, shelled or in the shell, with equal success.
A double guarantee is behind every planter, that of
the manufacturers, The Southern Plow Company,
Dallas, Texas, and ourselves.
