THEALUES
Victories of Servians Have Aroused Ad
miration id Europe—Adrianople
Is Now in Bad Way
Belgrade, Oct. 28.—The Servians have taken the town
of Mitrovitza, on the railroad north of Uskup, and Veriso
vitzdk has also fallen into their hands, according to a dis
patch from the Servian base at the frontier. Fifteen quick
tiring cannon and a quantity of ammunition were aban
doned by the Turks during the retreat. The Turkish army,
after abandoning Uskup, retreated toward Yeles, many
throwing away their rifles in the flight.
MILITARY TRAIN CAPTURED.
Servia, Oct. 28.—Bulgarian troops captured today a
military train in the vicinity of Eski-Baba carrying troops
and supplies from Constantinople to Adrianople.
Condon, Oct, 28.—That the Bulgar
ians have cut the railroad between
Constantinople and Adrianople and iso.
lated the latter is indicated in a spe
cial dispatch from Sofia.
In addition to the capture of Eski
. Baba by the Bulgarians they have
bgcn pushing forward, according to
latest reports from the eastern side,
in the hope of entirely destroying the
Turkisii army defeated at Kirk Kliisseh.
At the same time the Invaders are car
rying out a wide sweeping movement,
reaching almost to the shore of the
Black sea, and still other columns com
pleting the circle around Adrianople.
Despite their perils the Turks have
not lost hope of retrieving themselves.
According to dispatches from Constan
tinople sufficient reinforcements have
now reached the front to assume the
offensive. It Is stated that three Turk
ish columns are moving toward the
nortli and those columns will be sup
ported by other Turkish troops being
taken by water to Turkish ports of the
Black sea.
Meanwhile European military circles
are sounding the praises of the Ser
vian army. The Servians, from whom
Europeans did not expect much, are
now in possession of practically the
whole of old Servia and in connection
with the Montenegrins, hold the best
part of the district of Novipaszar.
The Greek army is now making
■toady headway. Its capture of Pen
toplgedla is considered of utmost im
Mttjjtsnce, for with Pentoplgedla in
(Meek hands the wRile country to the
north is open to the army and also
left open to Janlna, the Turkish base
in the far western region.
The Montenegrins, hampered by rain
and the stubborn resistance of the
Turks are still hammering at Tara
kosch and Scutari.
The allies since the beginning of the
campaign, have taken 10,000 prisoners
and 250 field guns, according to care
ful estimates.

still developing the turning move
ment.

commander of the Turkish forces has
issued a proclamation declaring that
the troops of the garrison have hero
ically accomplished the mission re
quired of them and have now with
drawn Inside the fortifications, which
they are prepared to defend with the
courage demonstrated by their fathers
at Plevna.
According to information emanat
ing from reliable sources the sultan
has expressed a desire to accompany
the generals to the front In order to
encourage and Inspire the troops by
his presence. At an extraordinary
council held at the palace all the
leading statesmen advised the sultan
to relinquish this plan.
Eighty per cent of the officers who
participated in the fighting on Oct.
22 and 23 were killed or wounded.
The Turkish eastern army is
stretched out between Visa and Adri
anople and is engaged In checking the
advance of the Bulgarians, who are
trying to push back the Turks and at
ths same time to cut the communica
tions with Constantinople.
No reports were received yesterday
regarding the position of ths western
army, telegraphic communication with
Uskup and Salonoki having been cut.
As a consequence the embassies are
without Information from the consuls.
Communication with Adrianople Is
working compartlvely well, although
the embassies' cipher telegrams are nqt
accepted.

IN WORLD'S SERIES

the world's Berles baseball games will
be given serious consideration by the
national baseball commission this win
ter. August Herman, chairman of the

the scheme which would limit each

ru, ney, according to Herman, will be
deducted from 6) per ce.it of the first
four games, the balance to be distrib
uted equally among the players of the

NOT NOW CRITICAL

reason— we seldom or never tret inside their doors,
i' ET US try a few experiments in this paper. Let us
all visit some different store today-some store that
we have never patronized or seldom patronized before.
There are stores that have been advertising for years and yet for some reason— or for no
"Oh, I never go to that store,
never been inside of that place.
Again and again you hear some woman or some man say,
Their prices are too high." Or you hear the remark, "I have
They haven't got what I want."
Now, remarks like these are not entirely fair to the advertiser, and certainly they are not fair
to ourselves.
The people of this city lose hundreds of thousands of dollars every year by not experiment
ing a little on their own accord.
Habit and prejudice are the hardest things in the world to overcome.
Nearly every day there are stores advertising.in this paper and offering remarkable prices'
which you do not take advantage of because you simply arc in the habit of going some place else.
And every day there are other stores offering you wonderful new things which you never see,
because you are afraid the prices-are too high.
If you only kfiew of how hard every advertiser struggles to overcome some habit in you, to
get some conviction on your part, to create somcovermastering desire, you would certainly try to
help that advertiser out by giving him a chance to prove his usefulness.
There are little advertisers in this city with retyarkable values, and an extraordinary concep
tion of good style and jjood taste, who have tried for years to get you inside their shops. Look at
their advertising in this paper today and remember that the effort they are making is in your
behalf as well as theirs.
There are big advertisers who are constantly trying to widen the circle of their influence
and in that way to become of greater use to this community.
Give them a hearing when you look through this-paper today. Throw your habit out of
doors and give them all a hearing if only for once.
Why, there isn't a reader of this paper who couldn't profit largely by a study of all the adver
tising instead of simply following some small part of it from day to day.
Try i( today—experiment a" little. Include all of the advertising in your shopping plans and
let none of it depende upon your habit.
Go out and explore a little. Get out of the rut.

his story, he claims, the verdict of the
jury would have been different.
Becke» denied that "Bald Jack" Rose,
who was the state's chief witness, was
his "graft collector," declaring Rose
was his "stool pigeon," who furnished
evidence on which he made scores of
raids. He gave an account of Ms
finances in an effort, he said, to show
that he had not hoarded gamblers'
tribute.
Becker said Rose never asked him
for money for his services. Eventually
lie learned why, when Rose told him
that he and Rosenthal were going Into
the gambling partnership, Rose re
minding the lieutenant of the services
he had given and asking Immunity
irom raids.
T said I would not molest them any
more than I would any other gnmbllng

Washington. Oct. 28 — President Taft
made public today a statement in
which he declared the "four years of

thought the people were being success

"Cleveland undoubtedly was sincere,''
says the statement, "in his belief that
the 'alarming and extraordinary busi

special message on Aug. 8, 1883, was
due to tlie Sherman Silver Purchase
act, but the fact remains that after the
act was repealeed the business situa
