CHEYENNE WELLS TIMES
H. Y. Tarwater, Publiaher. CHEYENNE WELLS - COLORADO POWERS INSIST UPON PEACE AUSTRIA CONBENTB TO JOIN IN REQUESTING ALLIES TO AL LOW MEDIATION. BULGARIANS DEFIANT BULGARIANS ASKED TO FOREGO VICTORIOUS INVASION OF CONSTANTINOPLE. Weatern Newapnper Union Neva Sei-vlca. London.—Judging by all precedents In the present war, the news from Constantinople la the herald of another Turkish defeat, at the Tchatalja lines, where a battle has been on for the last two or three days. The Turkish admission that so many wounded are arriving at the capital as to show that the Turks are offering fierce resistance, has great signifi cance, but may be regarded as prepar ing the public for another disappoint ment. It may be quite possible that this will prove the last great battle of the campaign. There are indications that Bulgari ans may forego a triumphal entry into Constantinople. According to some re ports, Bulgaria will bo content with ilnding suitable winter quarters for her army while peace negotiations are go ing on. The question of mediation has made another step forward in the announce ment from Paris thut the Austrian gov ernment has agreed to join with the other powers in transmitting Turkey’s request for mediation to the nllies and in inquiring on what terms the allies are disposed to accept mediation. The revelation of the danger to Eu ropean peace lying in the antagonistic interests of Austria and Servia appears to have quickened the sense of the powers, and probably of the Balkan Btates also, to the Imperative need ol working in amicable co-operation to procure a settlement of the Balkan problems acceptable to all. Another factor making for the speedy cessation of the war is the ap proach of severe winter conditions, which would give to the campaign an exceedingly arduous character. There is still talk in Vienna of send ing an ultimatum to Servia, and oth er warlike reports; but it is believed Germany is exercising an ameliorating influence in the direction of persuad ing both Austria and Servia to con sent to a postponement of the settle ment until the whole matter can be dealt with by the European confer ence. ONE DIES IN GUN FIGHT. David McCullom Also Shot When Troii ble Mesa Feud Reopens. Durango, Colo.—Samuel Truby, a Trouble Mesa rancher, died at Mercy hospital In Durango from a bullet ■wound received during a rifle battle in Cox cafion, In southeastern Monte zurna county, near the New Mexico line.

OTHERS KNOW US TOO WELL Suy to Daeslve Ouraalvea, but the Rest of the World la Generally Too Wlae. Senator Pomerene has a happy knack of driving home a statement with an epigram. . ▲t a luncheon Senator Pomerene described a would-be litterateur. “Thankß to whisky and strong cigars,” he said, “the poor fellow has failed to make good. He earns a pre carious living by newspaper work, but, though he Is 60 now, none of the wondrous novels and thrilling stories that he used to prate about have ap peared. "And yet, In his shabby apartment, over a bottle of cheap liquor and a box of cheap cigars, he will boast by the hour—poor, gray, wrinkled duffer —of his unfinished MSS. Oh, they will appear yet! Yes, he will yet Il lumine the world with the light of his genius.” Senator Pomerene sighed and con cluded: "Ah, if we could deceive others as easily aB we deceive ourselves, what reputations we’d all have, to be sure!” No Btrangers Allowed. Frank H. Hitchcock, the postmaster general of the United States, takes the deepest interest in even the smallest details of the postal service. One eve ning he was at the Union station in Washington, when he decided to go into one of the railway mail-service into one of the railway mail-service cars to see how the mail matter was being handled. Being a tall man and very athletic, he easily swung himself from the platform into the car, but he did not find it an easy matter to stay put. A burly postal clerk grabbed him by the shoulders, propelled him toward the side door, and practi cally ejected him to the platform be low. "What do you mean by that?" ask ed Hitchcock indignantly. "I mean to keep you out of this car,” replied the clerk roughly. "That fellow Hitchcock has given us strict orders to keep all strangers out of these cars.”—Popular Magazine. Bcotch Query. A bluff, consequential gentleman from the south, with more beef on his bones than brain in his head, riding along the Hamilton road, near to Blantyre, asked a herdboy on the roadside, in a tone and manner evi dently meant to quiz, if he were "half way to Hamilton?” “Man,” replied the boy, “I wad need to ken whar ye hae come frae, afore I could answer your question.”—Exchange. An Underworld. “You say you saw New York’s un derworld?” said the horrified relative. “Oh, yes,” replied Mrs. McGudley. "And I consider it very neat and in teresting. I think every large city ought to have a Bubway system." Don’t brag about yourself; Jolly others into doing it for you. NO MEDICINE But Change of Food Gave Final Relief. Most diseases start in the alimen tary canal—stomach and bowels. A great deal of our stomach and bowel troubles come from eating too much starchy and greasy food. The stomach does not digest any of the starchy food we eat—white bread, pastry, potatoes, oats, etc.— these things are digested in the small intestines, and if we eat too much, as most of us do, the organs that should digest this kind of food are overcome by excess of work, so that fermenta tion, indigestion, and a long train of ails result. Too much fat also is hard to digest and this is changed into acids, sour stomach, belching gas, and a bloated, heavy feeling. In these conditions a change from Indigestible foods to Grape-Nuts will work wonders in not only relieving the distress but in building up a strong digestion, clear brain and steady nerves. A Wash, woman writes: “About five years ago I suffered with bad stomach—dyspepsia, indiges tion. constipation—caused, I know now, from overeating starchy and greasy food. “I doctored for two years without any benefit. The doctor told me there was no cure for me. I could not eat anything without suffering sevens pain in my back and sides, and I be came discouraged. “A friend recommended Grape-Nuts and I began to use it. In lobb than two weeks I began to feel better and inside of two months I was a well woman and have been ever since. “I can eat anything I wish with pleasure. We eat Grape-Nuts and cream for breakfast and are very fond of it.” Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
