Money is Power I
Labor is Power !
You work a week for $ J 0.00.
That ten dollars repr?seme a week of your life
work? You are a week older, and as the weeks,
months and years go by your strength is gradually
exhausted; you have put your strength into dollars.
What nave you done with these dollars? Have
you spent them as fast as you earned them? If you
nave, you are poor indeed; but if you have spent only
a part of the dollars and kept some of them, you have
in these dollars stored irfp'etfergy and stt'engtrPto*
provide for you in your old age?
How much better still is your position if you have
put these saved dollars to work for you !
A good way to do this is to deposit them in some
good, strong bank?
The Westminster Bank,
Westminster, O.*
is a good place to put these dollars.

Triplets Named for Candidates,
Washington, Nov. 4.- Mr. and
Mrs. .1. II. Kyler, of Denison, Texas,
sent a telegram to President Taft,
received to-day at the White House,
announcing tho hirth of three sons,
William Howard Taft Kyler, Theo

Wilson Kyler. In the President's
name Assistant Secretary Brahany
to-day sent a telegram to the par

Porto linn Formally Applied for Me
diation-Fear Great Massacre.
Constantinople, Nov. 3-The Porte
has applied to the powers for media
tion with a view to the cessation of
hostilities and for tho negotiation of
peace. Application has boen made to
the embassies here and by circular
to the Ottoman repr?sentatives in the
European capitals.
The Turkish army ls retreating to
the last lino of fortifications outside
the capital. This was announced in
the first bulletin admitting defeat in
the great battle, which the govern
ment issued to-night.
Constantinople is in a fever of ex
citement over the alarming reports
from the field of battle. Foreigners
and natives alike are suffering from
tho tension caused by the series of
military disasters, and, although the
city is In a state of siege, crime in
some quarters ls unchecked. Many
families are leaving the city.
The people fear, first, an outbreak
of moslem fanaticism by the turbu
lent elements, the lower classes, and,
second, a rising of hordes of madden
ed soldiers, who aro being driven by
Hie Bulgarians to make their last
stand a few miles outside of Con
stantinople, and then perhaps to fall
back on tho capital.
Massacre and Pillage Feared.
There is a large and unruly ele
ment of the population which would
be glad of any pretext for massacre
and pillage. The presence of more
than 10,000 refugees from the war
zone, who have lost all their posses
sions, adds to the danger of the sit
uation. Rumors aro current that the
Young Turks Committee may rtart
rioting with the object of overthrow
ing the government, but there have
been no tangible proofs of such a
plan. It is doubtful .whether a ris
ing would be directed agaist foreign
ers as much as native Christians, but
the danger to foreigners is very real.
If tho Turkish army sustains com
plete defeat the lives and property of
thousands of foreigners, as well as
native Christians, will be in Immi
nent peril.
Turkey Awaits Powers' Reply.
London, Nov. 4.-The prospect
that a considerable portion of the de
feated, Turkish, army will ho ohio .to
form behind the lines of Tchatalja,'
the last fortifications before Constan
tinople, is not altogether excluded,
but it is doubted whether the Turks
will be able to maintain there any
serious resistance to the Bulgarian
In the struggle with the allies the
Turks lost, more than half their artil
lery. In fact, the Servians alone
claim to have captured no loss than
300 guns. This will certainly mili
tate against any prolonged stand at
Nothing from Powers.
Up to tho present hour there is no
sign that anything bas come of the
Porte's appeal to the Powers for me
diation. No replies have been receiv
ed at Constantinople and there is lit
tle doubt that when they are receiv
ed they will embody a declination to
consider the idea of proposing an
armistice. Apparently Bulgaria ls
in no mood to negotiate peace now.

San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, Nov.
ll.-The seaport of Aculpeeo, on the

Lone Survivor (Tings to Rigging of
Wrecked Craft.
New Inlet Saving Station, N. C., '
Nov. 2.-A lono survivor of the crew I
of the Now York schooner John Max
well, driven on the treacherous Hat
teras Shoals during the night, while
bound from Norfolk to Savannah, and
broken In two by a raging sea, clung
tenaciously in the rigging of the
wreck when darkness fell to-night
whllo life-savers from this and near
by stations watched helplessly for an
opportunity to rescue him. A Uni
ted States battleship from the South
ern drill grounds and a revenue cut
ter to-night are steaming full speed
to reach tho spot in an attempt to
savo him.
Six lives had already been lost in
the wreck, five of the men having
disappeared in the huge waves before
dawn to-day. The sixth sailor hung
onto tho rigging until late this after
noon, when, benumbed by cold and
exhausted by the lashing of the
waves, ho was forced to release his
hold and was swept to death in the
seas. The lone survivor, through
glasses, appeared to he an aged man.
An all-day battle was waged by the
life-savers, but tho tremendous sea
and forty-mile gale made it impossi
ble for them to launch their boats.
Repeatedly during the day the life
savers shot a line over tho Maxwell,
but the man in the rigging appar
ently was too numbed hy cold, or too
exhausted, to attach lt to tho rigging.
Failure to get the line fastened so
the breeches buoy might be sent out
prevented a rescue in this way. The
coast guardians again and again
tried to put their ll fe-boa ts to sea,
but each time were repulsed by thc
relentless waves.
It was not until afternoon that the
idcntly of the vessel became known.
A pleeo of wreckage hearing the
nanto was washed ashore. Pinier the
force of the terrific waves the craft
broke in two and is fast going to
pieces. She will be a total wreck
with her cargo of coal.
Capt. Fred Godfrey Saved.
Norfolk, Va., Nov. 3.--The sole
survivor of tho three-masted schoon
er, John Maxwell, wrecked on tho
shoals off New Inlet, N. C., is Capt.
Predorlck Godfrey. The other men
on tho Ill-fated vessel, seven In num

Noted Confederate S< Idier Called to
Reward-Loss to State.
Bennettsvllle, Nov. 3.--Senator
.lohn B, Oreen died o? his home here
this morning at 1 1 o', lock. Por sev
eral days his death bed been expected
and life had been sustained largely
by stimulants. The cause of death
was myocarditis. Por many years
Senator Green had been ono of the
county's most useful citizens and he
held a place in the hearts of every
one who knew him that is seldom
won hy any man. His death ls a gre. t
loss to the county and State.
As a Confederate soldier, in the
summer of '61, John B. Green re
sponded to the call of the State and
became a member of Company B,
24th South Carolina Infantry, and
with his company was mustered into
service in December of that year and
assigned to duty at Charleston. In
J>ine, 1S(?2, this company became a
part of Hie Confederate forces and
WSi assigned to service with the
a rui., of Tennessee. Private! John D.
tireen became captain of his com
pany, and at Hu? time of his death
liad in his keeping the captain's
sword carried by the first captain of
his company and hy the several offi
cers succeeding him, until il. was re
ceived by him He was in service at
Franklin, Chickamauga, Kennesaw
Mountain, Peachtree Creek and on
many other hard fought fields, prov
I himself every Inch a soldier.
Capt. Green was elected sheriff in
1892 and assumed tho duties of his
Office on December 13 of that year.
On more than one occasion presiding
Judges declared Sheriff (Deon to be
ono of tho most ellicient sheriffs in
tho State.
Two years ago. by an almost unan
imous call, Sheriff (?reen tendered
his resignation as sheriff and an
nounced his candidacy as State Sen
ator. No one thought, of opposing
him, and for two years he served the
county as Its Senator. His record
there was that of a broad and fair
minded patriot, desiring and striving
lo do that which looked for the bet
terment of his county and State.
