describes the situation at Adrlanople

visions are 10 scarce that the military
authorities have requisitioned all the

Conditions have been rendered
more grave by the number of sick who
crowd the hospitals, where the at?
tention is Inadequate. Thus the death
rate is very high. The Bulgarians
have allowed medicine and Red Cross
workers to enter under the escort of
a Bulgarian detachment. |
The commander of the foi tress has
declared he would rather see all die
of starvation than surrender the
town; that is why all who can are en
dsavoring to escape. The Bulgarians
believe even independently of any ac?
tion the powers may take, the ques?
tion of Adrlanople soon will be
it is understood Constantinople has j
accepted the views of Rcchad Pasha, i
who recently asked to be authorized
to reconvene the conference, he being j
here for the next sitting. The difficulty j
now lies In the determination of the
allies not to participate unless they
are notified In advance what Turkey
intends to propose,
They don't wish lo revive the dls
cusslon of unacceptable terms but de- |
sire to have i? ai a 04 rtalnty that Tur- i

pronounced ai the irreducible mini?
mum of the allies?Andrlanople?after
whh h it Will be p< sslble to discuss
the frontier line, which must leave
thai town in the hands of the allies.
in other words, the allies do not wish
to play Into Turkey's handi by re
entering the conference room wthout
a definite programme which may had
to definite conclusion of p< ace at this
lime. Before the meeting the Turks
and allies must have unofficially I

allies meet for the flrts time on neu?
tral grounds, i.-. looked upon as an ex- ,
eel lent opportunity for the plenlpo- t
tentlariei to take the Aral step in the
direction of an unofficial understand-I
ing. It is suggested also that the
British foreign secretary, sir Edward
Grey, in his > apadty as honorary
pr sldenl of the conference, mlgttit
take the initiative, thereby obviating
the necessity of either of the parties
appearing to make the Brst advance, j
This could b< accomplished only if the 1

PHILADELPHIA BANKERS VIEW

Pari of Pennsylvania Company,
which Xew President Plans to Ex
Tin- possil llity of the absorption of
the Atlantic Coast Line Railway Sys?
tem, by the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company, is suggested by an intlu
ential Philadelphia banker, accord?
ing to a story in tin- Philadelphia
North Annrican. It Is pointed out
that the new president of the big
transportation company In the course
"f rearrangement, and In view of the I
recent decision of the United states
Supreme Court, divorcing the Union
Pacific and the Southern Pacific, will
seek to expand the Pennslyvanla by
acquiring the Atlantic Coast Line
properties, which include 12,334 mile
of line .
The story as told by the North
American is as follows:
"That the Pennslyvanla Railroad
Company will have spread its do?
minion over the whole South before
the current year was the view ex?
pressed confldentally today by an In
j lluential banker, whose associations
j open to him many avenues to early
I inside information. His belief is that
j the Atlantic Coast Line system of
12,334 miles will he annexed to that i
of the Pennslyvanla, which now com?
prises 11,407 milei of line.
"Certain recent developments seem
to indicate that some gigantic re?
arrangement of the transportation
system of the United Stat. s is planned
by Samuel Rea, who has just become
head of the Pennslyvanla Railroad
system, pit dged te inaugurate and
carry forward aggressively o policy

LAD SHOOTS OLDER BROTHER.
s :i;lit War <>h! Lee County Boa
Kills Twelve War Old Brother.
Bishopville, Jan. ?Holly SwaUs*
the 8-year-old son of J. 1>. Swa"s. of
.' lcot. this county, shot and Killed
Livers, his ! 2-year-old brother late
Tuesday afternoon. It seems from
the facts gathered from persons from
thai section that the youngest broth?
er Is somewhat unbalanced in mind
and thai his older brother was up on
a si cher teasing his pel cat and the
little fellow resented It and sind him
? ;'houi w irning.
Mr. L. N. Welch, of Wlsacky, was
a visitor to th ? < ity Friday.
" I had been troubled, a little, for nearly 7 years,'* writes
Mrs. L Rncher, in a letter from Peavy, Ala., "but I was
not taken down, until March, when I went to oed and had
to have a doctor. Hedidal1 he could for me, but I got no
better. I hurt all over, and 1 could not rest. At last, I tried
Cardui, and soon I bc^an to improve. Now I am in very
good health, and able to do all my housework."
You may wonder why Cardui is so successful, after
other remedies have failed. The answer is that Cardui is
successful, because it is composed of scientific ingredients,
that act curatively on the womanly system. It is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It builds, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take Cardui. It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druj^ifets.
