London, Oct. 28.—The Ger man army which crossed the Danube at Orozva has joined hands with the Bulgarians, who invaded Serbia near Pra hovo, and the central powers now have an open road through northeastern Serbia and Bulgaria to the Aegean sea and Constantinople. They are thus in a position to send guns and munitions by river end railway to their Bulgarian and Turkish allies, who will be greatly strengthened there by. The invasion of the northern portions of Serbia by the Aus tro-Germans continues while Bulgaria is putting forth strong effort to secure control of additional sections of the Belgrade-Saloniki railway. So far as the north is con cerned, Serbia, it is feared by her allies, is doomed, but in the south, reinforced by the British and French who are now fighting by her side, Ser bia is using all of her strength to throw the Bulgarians back. After the French victory at Kirovolak, the Serbians, a cording to the Athens report, were able to reoccupy Veles, an important railway and road junction just south of Uskup, where a big battle is still progress. It is argued here that if the Bulgarians can be held in the south until Anglo-French rein forcements, which are now on the way, arrive, Bulgaria may yet be robbed of Macedonia, on which she has set her heart. But the allies will also have to attempt to block the German road to Turkey and their big attack may be directed else where. Mankato, Minn., Oct. 28.

Raymond Bruce, of the Am erican restaurant, located on Blanche street, this city, will be made to appear tomorrow before Justice Stoddard upon information filed by States At torney Waldron and Sheriff Smith to answer to the charge of having illegally sold intox" icating liquors in the city. His bond has been fixed at $200. Bruce will in all probability plead guilty. In spite of the fact that ex ample was made of bootleg gers at the last term of court, States Attorney Waldron, Sheriff Smith and his depu ties have kept a close watch in order that the state prohibi tion laws are observed. The last instance is the one which has been under surveillance for some time by the officials and will in all probability further exemplify the fact that a close watch is constantly kept upon all violators of the law. If reports are true, it will not be long before several oth" er violators will be made to appear to answer to similar charges made by the officials who are not unmindful of their official duties. Tom White, the chef who was at his work at the time the officers entered, thinking that he was about to be placed in custody, made a hasty exit by way of the rear door. He did where, after imbibing freely of spiriti frumenti, is said to have made the boast that he ers' hotel, where George Gard was the one who sold the liq uors. It is quite unlikely, however, that he really did act as salesman. If he had, it is quite likely that he also would have been called to answer to a charge. M.

A Newspaper that Cause* Comment in a Town that is Talked About School Teachers Capture Medora Town Capitulated Without Res' istance, and Citizens Enter tain 'Marms' RiSht Royally. A bevy of "school marms" from the Beach schools, to the number of ten, descended up" on Medora Saturday morning, capturing the town and all therein contained at one fell swoop. Realizing the futility of resistance, the town gallant ly capitulated, swung wide its doors and a royal entertain ment for which the old "cow town" is famous, followed. Automobiles were furnished by hospitable citizens, and an expedition of exploration fol lowed to the country tributary to the historic village. The burning coal mine was one of the interesting places, The cavernous depths of the Nichols coal mine, with the genial Nels himself as guide, was explored.

In those days the old cow town housed a motley throng. It was the hunting mecca of the rich, nobility from*abroad, and romantic naturesgener al who found there a retreat from the restraint of quiet places—or from the grasping tentacles of an outraged law. Some of the latter citizenry gazing with envious eyes upon his neighbor's cattle, sought, under cover of night, to in crease their personal fortunes by the simple mathematical process of subtraction, a pro ceeding frowned upon ^nd dis couraged by a mysterious com mittee noted for the quietude, sureness and dispatch with which it performed its duty. In such cases, the morning' sun often shone upon a quiet figure suspended at length from a convenient tree-limb, while the wind softly hummed a last requiem to the departed through the leafy boughs. In those days, the law was not confined to books. With Miss Verachik as g' :le, the party visited the IV. quis DeMores mansion, where they were guests of Judge and Mrs. Foley, old pio" neers of the town. The Judge has been caretaker of the De Mores estate for many years, and though the house is never the scene of jollity and merri ment as in the old days, and 'though in all probability the family never again will occupy it as a home, its equipage has ?een kept for years intact as on the day they went away.

Enter tain Large and Apprecia tive .Audience .at .Opera House. The Sara Ruth Bates Co. that entertained at the opera house on Saturday evening rendered a very pleasing en tertainment. The music, both vocal and instrumental, was worthy of special comment. Miss Bates rendered several very interesting readings, chief of which was a sketch, "The Silent System." Among the musicians, Miss Curtis, violinist, clearly dem onstrated that she is an artist. Her rendering of the Russian lullaby and La Polonaise were especially well received. Mr. Barbour's baritone voice, which is a near approach to a tentor, was worthy of ment. com" JUST OUT OF COLLEGE, FIVE-REELER BY ADE. This feature can be classed with the very best and it pro vides good, wholesome enter tainment whic hpleases every' body. The action is fast, fur ious and funny, and the cast includes Eugene O'Brien, who plays the college graduate, Amelia Summerville, who plays the boarding house comes the resourceful pickle merchant. This comedy con tains a laugh every minute. The story is well seasoned about the college youth, who has acquired, though little learning, an impenetrable coat of brass which enables him to gc in and beat the old man at his own game of pickles, thereby winning the girl and the paternal adoption into the business, and the film registers the spirit of youth and good fun for which Mr. Ade is fam ous. This picture is booked through the same firm that handles The Spoilers, The Es cape and The Christian, and Mr. Smith of the opera house promises a real treat. THE BLINDNESS OF VIRTUE—6 ACTS.

He came here about three months ago and has been staying with his sister, Mrs. Moran, who lives on the south side. A short time ago a benefit dance was given which netted him $11. Suddenly he disappear ed, and has not been seen or heard of.

A graphic story of the battle for life waged in vain 300 feet be neath the surface of the sea by the 21 men who perished in the navy submarine F-4 last March at Honolulu is told in the final report on the loss of the vessel submitted by a board of inquiry headed by Rear Ad miral Busch and made public today. Examination of the wrecked hull after it has been brought to the surface and placed in dry dock convinced the board that the disaster was caused by a leak resulting from a cor roded battery lining, and the failure of the boat through poor diving qualities to res pond promptly to the rudder change which should have re turned her to the surface. Dis carding the theory once ad vanced that chlorine gas brought quick relief in death to the crew the board, from signs within the rusted and battered hulk, pieced out in its report a dramatic account of how the doomed men strove desperate ly to save themselves as their vessel sank to the bottom, fifteen met death in the en gine room, where they sought »efuge at the last.
