COLONEL ATTACKS MESSAGE
Finds It Filled With Illogical and
OYSTER BA V Colonel Roose
velt issued a long and bitter attack
against President Wilson’s message.
He finds the message to be filled
with illogical as well as meaningless
sentences which he challenges any
man, including the President, to ex
plain and asserts that the document
reveals Mr. ’Wilson a man without
convictions, who, in the present in
stance, is using words to “cover a
policy of dishonorable action.”

k GENERAL SDRVtr OF
Friday, Dec. 3.—A Berne telegram
states that at the recent meeting of
the Austrian and German emperors
it was agreed between the rulers that
the partition of Serbia was to be con
sumated at two solemn ceremonies,
one at Nish and the other at Belgrade.
The country is to be apportioned be
tween Bulgaria and Austria.
Russ troops are reported to have en
tered Bulgarian territory.
Berlin reports 1,300 Serbs captured.
Teutons have occupied Monastir.
The demand for the recall of Cap
tains Boy-Ed and Von Papen, military
and naval attaches of the German em
bassy, by the U. S. is expected to
strain further the relations between
the two governments.
Saturday, Dec. 4.—The reports con
cerning the British reverse near Bag
dad agree, and show that without rein
forcements the British forces, outnum
bered four to one, will be in the same
position as before the campaign in
Asia Minor begun.
Roumania’s attitude still draws most
interest in the Balkans. London has
become too skeptical regarding Balkan
policies to announce anything favor
able in the declaration by Bucharest
that after Monday Roumania will com
mandeer any foreign ships in her
ports. Generally the attitude of Rou
mania is regarded as favoring the en
The Serbians continue to resist the
Austrian advance near the Montene
grin border. The Teutonic forces are
rounding up as many isolated units as
possible, and Berlin reports the cap
ture of 2,000 more prisoners in the
day’s mountain fighting.
Sunday, Dec. s.—An iron-clad pact
between the entente allies, including
Japan, pledges each of the signatories
not to conclude a separate peace dur
ing the present war, and when terms
of peace are discussed no one of the
five nations will demand any condi
tions without previous agreement with
the other powers.
The Rome Tribuna correspondent as
serts that the purpose of Emperor
Williams’ visit to Vienna was to se
cure Austria’s co-operation in a Teu
ton-Turco expedition into Egypt, and
that Emperor Franz Josef refused
such aid, contending that all Austrian
troops are needed to defend the west
ern front against Italy.

A Merciless Judge.
One Who Shows No Favor.
A merciless judge is Father Time.
Before him the weak and the wanting
go to the wall. Only the truth can
stand. For years the following state
ment from an Edgerton resident has
withstood the sternest of all tests.
J. M. Ogden, E. Fulton St., Edger
ton, says: “For more than a year I
was annoyed by pains in the small of
my back. The attacks came on sud
denly, lasting for several hours and
then disappeared, only to return again
in a few r weeks. I sometimes had
headaches and the kidney secretions
were unnatural. A few boxes of
Doan’s Kidney Pills drove every symp
tom of kidney complaint from my sys
tem and I am now enjoying much bet
More than three years later Mr. Og
den said: “I haven’t had occasion to
use any kidney medicine since I took
Doan’s Kidney Pills. The benefit they
gave me has been permanent.”
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don’t sim-
Ely ask for a kidney remedy—get
loan’s Kidney Pills —the same that
Mr. Ogden has twice publicly recom
mended. Foster-Milburn Cos., Props.,

Three Types of Feet.
Three types of human feet have
been noted by a British naturalist. In
the most common designated, the L
type, the first or great toe projects
beyond the others; in the much less
frequent S type the second toe ex
tends beyond the first, as well as the
others; and in the rare E type the
first and second toes, longer than any
others, are of equal length. The S
type, which seems to be a more youth
ful form than the others, is more com
mon in females than in males.
