LONDON, ENG—The official an
nouncement by Berlin of the attack
by German forces on the Serbians is
the first that Germans are on the Ser

several weeks that the Germans and
Austrians were planning anew cam

of going to the assistance of the
Such a move would doubtless be di
rected first at Serbia in an attempt
to force a passage through that coun
try to the Bulgarian border. Turkey,
having made promises of territorial
concessions to Bulgaria, it has been
reported that the latM* nation would
not oppose the passage of German and
Austrian forces to the * tirkish fron
tier. The prediction has been made
that thiii move would bring Roumania
and Greece into the war. These na
tions, as well as Bulgaria, have called
out additional troops recently.
British Forces Sent.
Official announcement was made in
England in July that British forces,
the strength of which was not given,
had been sent to Serbia. A large Brit
ish force, under command of Rear Ad
miral Ernest Troubridge, according to
unofficial advices from Belgrade in
June, has been in Serbia since March.
It is also known that the Serbians
are being assisted in the field by the

PETROGRAD A dispatch
from Kiev to the Bourse Gazette
quotes the director of the Southwest
ern railways as saying that the evac
uation of that town was “proceeding
normally” and that there were on
hand enough cars for this purpose.
Military critics assume in the ab
sence of official information that the
Russian forces have abandoned Viina
and are retiring to the south.
London, Sept. 22. —The Russian
army menaced since the fall of Viina,
by the Germans encircling movement,
is estimated variously at 250,000 to
500,000 men. The conditions under
which the Russians are attempting to
extricate themselves furnish a strik

the capture of Warsaw. They may pre
cipitate one of the greatest, if not the
greatest battle which has been fought
on the eastern front.

OUR PUBLIC FORUM
Hon- Elihu Root
On Woman’s Sphere
The question of Woman Suffrage is an issue before
j the American people. Twelve states have adopted it,
four more states vote upon it this fall and it is strongly
urged that it become a platform demand of the national
political parties. It is therefore the privilege and the duty
IlßKiplllll' of every voter to study carefully this subject. Hon. Elihu
Root, in discussing this question before the constitutional
convention of New York, recently said in part:
llilllk j| ||)jw “I am opposed to the granting of suffrage to women,
ililllllfe ikj|||| because I believe that it would be a loss to women, to all
women and to every woman; and because I believe it
Hlk would be an injury to the state, and to every man and
every woman in the state. It would be useless to argue
this if the right of suffrage were a natural right. If it were a natural right,
then women should have it though the heavens fall. But if there be any one
thing settled in the long discussion of this subject, it is that suffrage is not a
natural right, but is simply a means of government, and the sole question to
be discussed is whether government by the suffrage of men and women will
be better government than by the suffrage of men alone.
“Into my judgment, sir, there enters no element of the inferiority of
woman. It is not that woman is inferior to man, but it is that woman is
different from man; that in the distribution of powers, of capacities, of quali
ties, our Maker has created man adapted to the performance of certain func
tions in the economy of nature and society, and woman adapted to the
performance of other functions.
“Woman rules today by the sweet and noble influences of her character.
Put woman into the arena of conflict and she abandons these great weapons
which control the world, and she takes into her hands, feeble and nerveless
for strife, weapons with which she is unfamiliar and which she is unable to
wield. Woman in strife becomes hard, harsh, unlovable, repulsive; as far
removed from that gentle creature to whom we all owe allegiance and to
whom we confess submission, as the heaven is removed from the earth.
“The whole science of government is the science of protecting life and
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In the divine distribution of powers,
the duty and the right of protection rests with the male. It is so throughout
nature. It is so with men, and I, for one, will never consent to part with
the divine right of protecting my wife, my daughter, the women whom I love,
and the women whom I respect, exercising the birthright of man, and place
that high duty in the weak and nerveless hands of those designed by God
to be protected rather than to engage in the stern warfare of government. In
my judgment, this whole movement arises from a false conception of the
duty and of the right of both men and women. .
“The time will never come when the line of demarcation between the
functions of the two sexes will be broken down. I believe it to be false phi
losophy; I believe that it is an attempt to turn backward upon the line of
social development, and that if the step ever be taken, we go centuries back
ward on the march towards a higher, nobler and purer civilization, which must
be found not in the confusion, but in the higher differentiation of the sexes.

But Mr. Dawe Says It’s Just as
Good Today as When It
Was First Made.
Eight years ago Mr. Dawe testified
to complete relief from kidney ills.
He now says that there has not been
the slightest return of the trouble.
Edgerton sufferers will take a deal
of comfort in Mr. Dawe’s statement.
Read what he says:
John Dawe, retired farmer, Broad
way and Fulton Sts, Edgerton, Wis.,

ney several years ago. The first
symptom was a dull pain in the small
of m> back. I sometimes had dull head
aches and felt languid and little like
getting around. I had frequent desires
to pas 9 the kidney secretions. Though
I to6k treatments for quite a while I
didn’t seem to improve I finally I used
Doan’s Kidney Pills and they strength
ened my kidneys and cured me.”
(Statement given July 22nd, 1907).
A PERMANET CURE

can’t speak too highly of them.”

The patient smiled feebly. “Doc,”
said he, “on fever days my head’s so

I shake so I can’t hold an opinion.”
