Latest War News From the Front. 'Ihe G(reek crisis and thelit oeral'' of diplwOiatic relatin'! beHtween IRus ia anid lI ulgaria are the i )bsOt in fiat iies of the war. 'lThe Rlussilon, IFit nch, Il.lr;sh antd It:alian miniisters at SouFia, soon after the presentiat lion of Blulgaria's reply to the ustian ul l tiate tu, riequested their passports from the Bulgarian govern.l ntii on the grounld that the reply was unsatisfac tory. This was followed by a similar request by the Serbian minister. Although there is hea:tvy liihtin on the western and eastern battle fronts. the latest moves on the diplomatic chessboard in the lialkans--moves which admittedly will ha e an impor tant bearing in the great world war gamne---are holding the attention of the universe. Divided by the avowed determina tion of the king of Greece not to as stnt to the ultimate policy of P're mier Venizelos and a majority of the parliament that Greece should come to the aid of Serbia, her treaty ally. the populace of the Hellenic kingdom has taken sides for and against the war, K!ng Constantine and his follow ers for the moment at least being in the ascendanr.cy. The Greek cabinet has resigned and a coalition ministry, headed by Alexander Zaimis, and in which Veni zelos, the "master of Greece," will have no portfolio, is probable; llul garia has declined to accede to Rus s!a's ultimatum that she have done with the Teutonic powers and the breaking off of diplomatic relations between the two countries, and prob ably with all the entente powers and Serbia, has resulted; King Ferdi nand's government is reported to have sent an ultimatum to Serbia demand ing Serbia's acquiescence in Bulga ria's demand for the cession of Mace donia; French troops will continue to land in Greece to proceed through that country to the aid of Serbia, and, if need be, against Bulgaria and the Teutonic allies, regardless of the Greek crinlu-these are the main de velopments id the Balkan 'situation. There is little change in the mili tary situation on any of the various war fronts. Reports which remain un confirmed are to the effect that an Austro-German force variously esti mated at from 100,000 to 600,000 men, with 2,000 guns, is proceeding through Southern Hungary to attack Serbia. Military observers in London, how ever, assert that it is probable a fig ure between these statements would be nearer the truth, declaring that there is no evidence of any very great withdrawals of Teutonic troops from the Russian front and that the west ern front every day is demanding new drafts. The observers say that the Germans are not in a position to withdraw many troops from the Russian side, as making desperate effort to assume the the armies of Emperor Nicholas are initiative in the fighting. On some sectors Petrograd reports that the Russians already have succeeded in doing this. Besides, it is asserted they have now held up Field Mar shal ton Hindenburg's drive against Dvinsk for several weeks and inflict ed very serious losses on him. Von Hindenburg is now reported to be re ceiving reinforcements with a view of making another attempt to force his way through the oater defenses of the city. In the west the big gunsa are boom ing, seemingly preparing a way for a continnation of the offensive of the allies, which the Germans doubtless Swill try to forestall by an attack from their side. In Champagne the PFrench have captured the village of Tahare and the summit of the hill Tahure in Sthe German secbnd line of defense. The Italians record another advance toward Rovereto, which has so many times been reported as evacuated by the Austrians. The Bulgarian premier. M. Radosla voff, has declared, according to a Ber line newspaper: "We confront war and must defend out national interests. We must wrest from our enemies everything they took from us two years ago." General Savoff, the former Bulgari an minister of war, is quoted as say SIng: I "Every Bulgarian who breaks away Sfrom Russia commits an act of trea son toward his country." Allied troops have landed at Sale Sniki, Greece, and two powerful Rus r naln squadrons have appeared off the > Bulgarian port of Varns, on the Black sea. Whether Bulgaria has complied wfth the Russtian ultimatum that she openly break with the central powers and dismiss the German and Austrian officers with her army, is not known, but her fhilure to do so Jis considered 5 certaa to result in the creation of a yet another soae in the world war.

Brownsville, Tex.-The American cavalry patrol and about half a o,,zen Mexicans had a running fight Sunday near I.a Feria. about thirty miles up the lisj (Grande from Browns\ihie. The Mexicans tried to ambush tthe Americans, but failed. There were no known casualtvs on either side. Major Edward Anderson of the Twchlth Cavalry, in enarge of patrol district along the river front about La Feria, reported that Lieutenant John A. Considine of Seattle. Wash.. and three men of the Sixth Cavalry, while on patrol, saw the Mexicans ahead. Considine counted three. His men thought they saw two more hid ing in the brush. These Mexicans opened fire at short range when the cavalrymen suddenly came upon them around a curve in the road. Lieutenant Considine slipped from his horse, leading his men to the road side, and they advanced on the Mexi cans at a run. The Mexicans ran into the prickly brush when the Americans had a long running fight, firing in the direction of the noise in the brush as the Mexicans went through. Rein forcement closed in from several di rections, but the bandits escaped. Armed Mexicans, who appeared from the American sidc of the river to be bandits, were seen to be gathering this week near Rio Bravo, Mextei, a short distance above the place of the last Mexican raid. Estimates of the number of these alleged bandits went as high as 530. Along the river in that section American army patrols are strengthened and prepared. RAILROAD SUFFERS BIG LO88.

But the men must possess vigorous bodies and keen, active . minds. Success-making mental and physical activity relies largely upon right living wherein the right kind of food plays a most vital part. In many cases the daily diet lacks certain of Nature's elements. essential to energizing and upbuilding the mental and physical faculties. Most white four prod' ucts, such as white bread and many other commonly used foods, are in that class. A food especially designed to offset this lack Grape-Nuts -made of wheat and malted barley, supplies all the nutriment of the grains, including the mineral salts sturdy builders of brain, nerve and muscle. Grape-Nuts is thoroughly processed, ready to serve from the package, fresh, crisp and delicious. Then, too, there's a wonderful return of the power to "do" and to "be" for the small energy required in its digestion. After repeated set-backs thousands have found a change to right eating means forging ahead.
