Trice, the well known and prominent real estate man, passed away at his home on Park avenue, Sunday evening at 10:30 oclock, after an illness of seven weeks. He had been troubled with Brights disease, the cause of his death, since January, 1914. The funeral was conducted from the home yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon at 2:30, the Rev. W. T. Sul livan of the Presbyterian church hav ing charge of the service. The fun eral was largely attended.

Col. Trice had been in the real es tate business for 37 years and was known as one of the most successful operators in the west. He used the term, “Land Advocate” for the title 01 his calling. His method was todevei ope the unimproved and unsightly places and make of them desirable homes and farms stocked with bloodec animals before offering them for sale. He was largely instrumental in devel oping Red River county, Texas, in this way, and also at other places where his name is still honored. He believ ed in the gospel of paint, of flowers and all things that would make a town, or a country beautiful, sanitary and healthful, a desirable place in which to live and be happy. He came to Ashdown in February, 1913, and en gaged in the land business here. His activities were scon cut short by ill health, yet he was able to carry out some of his plans of development in the country he had selected, as he of ten said to fight one more battle and win one more victory. Col. Trice has won many friends here, who will extend to his sorrowing family tiielr deepest sympathy. Charles Yancy Trice was born at Cameron, Mo., October 28th, 1853. He was one of a family of fourteen child ren, and is survived by six sisters and five brothers. By his first marriage to Mias Paralee M. Steen were born two children, Harriett Antoinette, now Mrs. O. C. Sheley of Independ ence, Mo., and a son, Don Trice, or Kansas City, Mo. Tci his marriage to Miss Lena Kstelle Drake, were born three children, Helen, Katherine and Ruth, the latter dying at Lamar, Mo., June 22, 1901, at the age of eight years. Misses Helen and Katherine are at home, Miss Helen being the primary teacher in the Ashdown Pub lic school at Ashdown. Col.

London, Oct. 18.—The entente allies have effected a landing at Enos, on the Aegean Sea, in European Turkey, close to the Bulgarian border, and have seized the railroad at that point, ac cording tc- a dispatch from Athens to the Messagerro of Rome transmitted by the Central News. Berlin, Oct. 18.—The Serbian forces in the Macva district of the Save Drina front, in Northwestern Serbia, where strong resistance has been offered to the Teutonic invaders, are now be ginning to retreat, it was officially an nounced today by German army head quarters. Berlin, Oct. 18.—Italy’s co-operation with her allies in the Balkans may now be considered absolutely certain says the Correspondenza Italians. This probably will begin with naval action ir the Aegean Sea. London, Oct. 18.—Serbian and Anglo French iroops have occupied the Bul garian town of Strumitsa, 30 railed north of Saloniki, according to official telegrams from Athens. This follows slowly upon news that Serbians with allied assistance have repulsed a Bul garian attack at Vilandove, turning advance of the Bulgarians Into a re treat beyond their own border. Thus the Anglo-Frencli-Serbians action in the Balkans has leaped out of the field of surmise into a vivid foregi^nd of fact and is asserted by London mili tary observers to have been crowned at the cutset with success. The arrival of French troops at the psychological moment when the Ser bian struggle with 40,00$ newly ar rived Bulgarians with Vilandovo and tlundovo still hung in the balance, nas dramatic qualities which for the moment have completely eclipsed the military exploits in other theatres. The chief military importance of the allied-Serbian success is the de feat of the Burgarian project of cut ting the Saloniki-Nish railroad, which is known to have been the Bulgarian objective. It is not clear whether British troops co operated with the French in this operation, but a mes sage from Athens stating they had left Saloniki Saturday for the Serbo Bulgarian frontier indicated they at least were near the scene of the fight ing. -o OGDEN LOCAL NEWS~ Ogden, Oct. 18.—Bcok Phillips was here from Ashdown Friday afternoon.
