ON THE HIKE
Four Charming Young Ladies Make
the Trip About as Quick as the
Boys Could Make It.
Yesterday four young ladies, mem
bers of the Christian Association
Athletic club of Omaha, hiked into this
city from the metropolis, two of the
party covering the distance from Oma
hn, wh'le the two others started on
their trip from Fort Crook. Two of
the ladies, Nina Williams and Lelia
Lipp, did the whole trip from Omaha
to Plattsrnouth in good time and re
quired only four and one-half hours
to do the lifteen miles from their home
to this city, while Miss Hannah Berg
gren and Miss Charlotte Wand
schneider covered twelve miles in three
and one-half hours. The trip was one
filled with pleasure to the ladies and
they did not in the last hurry them
selves, but swung along under the cool
of the October breeze and although
there were several offers made of rides
along the way the ladies refused them
and made the entire distance on foot,
and returning to Omaha left here at 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon, after
spending a few hours here with Miss
Berggren's parents. The young ladies
are members of the athletic club, and
for their efforts they will receive a
credit of their athletic work at the Y.
W. C. A. and a trophy of their walking
expedition over the hills of old Ne
braska. All of the party when here
were in the best of spirits and have
had a fine time in the walking tour and
were more than willing to take up the
job of hiking back to their home in
How to Prevent Croup.

It may be a surprise to you to learn
that in many cases croup can be pre
vented. Mrs. II. M. Johns, Elida,
Ohio, relates her experience as fol
lows: "My little boy is subject to
croup. During the past winter I kept
a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy in the house, and when he began
having that croupy cough I would give
him one or two doses of it and it
would break the attack. I like it bet
ter for children than any other cough
medicine, because children take it wil
lingly, and it is safe and reliable,"

FOR ATTACK ON
Rebel Hordes, Clamoring for Food
and Water, Are Assembled
BATTLE MOMENTOUS EXPECTED
Douglas, Ariz., Oct. 31. General
Francisco Villa began moving his
troops into position tonight for an at
tack on Agua Prieta, Sonora, opposite
here, regardless, he personally declar
ed, of any consequences or effects from
the United States.
"If necessary I will fight the
United States army assembled along
the border." he asserted, after hear
ing this afternoon for the first time
that the American government had
given permission for Crranza to
transport troops from Laredo and
Eagle Pass, Texas, to reinforce the
garrison at Agua Prieta.
Four of these troop trains arrived
tonight, bringing the total fighting
men in the garrison commanded by
General P. Elias Calles, to approxi
mately G,000 men.
Villa, according to reliable esti
mates, has 10,000 soldiers. He claims
to have 18,000. The battle may begin
at any moment perhaps tonight o
The border line was closed, but ar
rangements were made by United
States immigration authorities to ad
mit under guard thousands of more or
less destitute refugees from Agua
Villa's forces appeared within five
miles of Agua Prieta shortly after 2
o'clock this afternoon. Fifteen hundred
cavalary advanced from the Slaughter
ranch, eighteen miles east of her,
along the border.
Three thousand other troops, mount
ed and afoot, and driving pack animals
apparently loaded with machine guns
or mounted cannon, were tonight at a
point four miles east of Douglas and
about the same distance south of the
Villa With Cavalry.
Villa himself was with his cavalry,
forming a flank guard which passed
along the border today. It was during
this march that he learned that Car
ranza reinforcements had been trans
ported over American territory, and
launched a verbal attack on the United
States which he declared would turn
into a physical attack if necessary. He
"This is the way the United States
repays me for the treatment and pro
tection I have given foreigners in
Mexico. Hereafter I don't give a d
what happens to foreigners in Mexico
or in my territory. I am through with
the United States. I can fight my bat
tles. Let them fight theirs."
Fighting at Torres.
Nogales, Ariz., Oct. 31. A battle
has been in progress since 4 a. m. to
day at Torres, Sonora, between Car
ranza forces commanded by General
Dieguez and a Villa column under
General Flores, according to reports
received tonight at Nogales, Sonora,
opposite here. No details could be
General Dieguez, who recently cap
tured Guaymas, on the west coast of
Mexico, has been advancing with his
troops toward Hermosillo in an effort
to drive Villa detachments toward the
international border. Torres is a short
distances south of Hermosillo.
HERE AT HOME
Plattsrnouth Citizens Gladly Testify
and Confidently Recommend
Doan's Kidney Pills.
It is testimony like the following
that has placed Doan's Kidney Pills so
far above competitors. When people
right here at home raise their voice in
praise there is no room left for doubt.
Read the public statement of a Platts
Mis. Adam Kurtz, Plattsrnouth,
says: "I suffered intensely from my
kidneys and back and I couldn't stoop
or stand erect. I had a dull, nag
ging pain through my back that rob
bed me of all energy. My sight be
came effected and dark spots appear
ed before my eyes. I got Doan's
Kidney Pills from Gering & Co.'s

BATTLE IS ON
NOW IN THE
Russia Believed to Be Hurrying
to the Rescue of
SERBIA STILL CENTER INTEREST
London, Oct. 30. Serbia remains
the center of interest in the war. Ex
cept for the French contingent stif
fening the Serbin line in the region of
Strumitsa, the allied reinforcements
nave not yet reached her hard pressed
and retreating armies, and only the
mountainous character of the country
is saving these troops from annihila
tion. Serbia's tiny neighbor and ally,
Montenegro, meantime, is being ham
mered by the Austrians, who are ex
erting renewed pressure along the
Drina near Vishegrad, in a movement
co-ordinating with the general Teu
tonic offensive in the Balkans.
Following the Russian bombard
ment of the Bulgarian literal, Rus
sian troops are now reported to be
crossing the Black sea preparatory to
an attempted landing, with a view to
attacking the Bulgarians in the rear.
These reports come from German
sources, however, and are not con
firmed, nor is the report of a big
naval engagement in the Black sea
between a Russian squadron and
Turkish war ciaft, headed by the
Goeben and Breslau.
Russian Troops to Aid Serbia.
The rumored movement of Russian
troops to aid Serbia is generally
credited in England and given the
most prominent place in the late edi
tions of the London evening papers.
A guarded reference to the under
taking was made in a Petrograd dis
patch printed this morning, which re
ferred to the Russian emperor "jour
neying south to give a send-off to
large forces of all arms."
Seibia circles in London are still
making urgent appeals to the allies
to rush troops to their country's sup
port, but the very fact that the Ser
bians have been able to hold out up
to the present time has created a cer
tain amount of optimism.
Neither of the great battle fronts
in the east and west have furnished
any marked developments. Petrograd
reports tonight that the Austro-Ger-mans
are evacuating Volhynia, leav
ing a vast quantity of ammunition
Details Lacking of Naval Battle.
Almost coincident with the report
that the Russians are sending trans
ports with troops through the Black
sea for the purpose of making a land
ing on the Bulgarian coast, comes the
unofficial statement that a naval en
gagement between Turkish and Rus
sian warships has taken place in the
waters. A message received in Ber
lin from Bucharest reports that the
Turkish warships Mindullu, Sultan Se
lim (formerly the German cruisers
Breslau and Goeben), and Hamidieh
attacked a Russian squadron of three
battleships and several cruises and
destroyers in the Black sea. No fur
there details are given.
The Bulgarians are said to be pre
paring special trains to transport
German troops over the Bulgarian
railroad to Constantinople through
Thrace. Already war munitions have
been dispatched to the Turkish capi
tal. Executions, for Espoinage.
The execution by German military
authorities in Belgium of njne per
sons convicted of espionage is re
ported officially from Berlin, accord
ing to an Amsterdam dispatch to Lon
don. Ten other persons, including
three women, were sentenced to pen
Russian resistance in the Riga dis
trict evidently is holding firm, as the
Germans admit a retirement south
across the Missa near Palaken after
they had advanced on the northern
bank of that stream. Palaknen is
about eleven miles directly south of
Riga, which shows the nearness of
the German approach. The Germans
retired after they had repulsed two
strong attacks and were facing a
Berlin reports that nothing of mo
ment has occurred on the western
front since the issuance of the prev
ious official statement. Paris declares
the Germans were beaten off in vio
lent counter attacks made in an ef
fort to regain positions near "La
Courtine" in the Champagne, which
the French took on Friday. The
gain of a trench secVion at Boysen
hatche in the Artois also is claimed
by the French.
