Teuton Advance in Rumania Forces
Russ Out of fialatz and
London. Jan. 7. Calatz and Foc
sani appeared tonight to be domed to
imminent occupation by (Jermany's
from the smith and west. The Rus
mania. Cialatx apparently was under
bombardment 1-y Teutonic cannon.
Focsani is menaced by strong forces
from the south and west. The Ruc
sian onieial statement gave some hint
of the prodigal massing of men and
desperate attacks which the (Germans
are ee:ting hero.
Despite the (ierman success on the
front an 1 Calat and Focsani, it was
pointed or.t by military experts that
the oilicial statement from both sides
apparently indicated a successful re
sistance by tho Russians to what is
probably tho most serious German
rat naee to tho allies' forces in Ru
mania the attempt to flank the Russian-Rumanian
armies by a thrust
eastward fiom tin; Slonika Cituz and
Tr m a - A-;i.lloys.
Tito Rii-rian statement detailed a
sliglit withdrawal, but a later stop
page of the enemy advance.
Some idea of the ferocity of the
fighting over all this Rumanian and
Dobrudjan terirtory is hinted at in
the use twice in the Petrograd state
ment of the descriptive phrase, '"bay
oneted and prisonerod."
i;inK?y Fiifhtin;.
Previous Ilerlin statements have
been profuse in such terms as "storm
ing in hand to hand battles."
Tho Petrograd statement declared
the Russian forces . voluntarily aban
doned Prai'.a. The Berlin statement
asserted that Russians destroyed "a
majority of the Rumanian factory es
tablishments" in that city indicating
that the Germans found the town of
scant valio to them.
Along the northern frontier of Dob
rudja the advantage 'in the fighting
will be Ct'i tinctly with the Russian de
fenders. The terrian i broke into
numberless rivers, ponds, lakes and
swamps, capable of easy defense and
offering the hardest sort of obstacles
to the attackers. Presumably the Rus
sian retirement from liralia was to
long prepared defensive positions
along this line and this line, it was
pointed out tonight, will probably be
along Russian soil.
Apparently there has been fierce
furhting along the northwestern front
south of Riga. Here the Russians ap
pear from the official statements to
have achieved a considerable measure
of success.
The residents of the territory in the
vicinity of Eight Mile Grove held a
wolf hunt this morning and were
quite lucky in their efforts, as five of
the animals were bagged by the boys.
The attendance was not large, but the
members of the party did some good
work in rounding up the wolves. On
Monday, January 15th, Jack Philpot
has arranged to hold another hunt,
and this will be held five miles south
of the Eight Mile Grove precinct line.
All the farmers are invited to get into
the big hunt.

Washington Hopes for Information as

Reply to Wilson Note Scheduled This
Week, Numerous Reports
Washington, I). C, Jan. 7. Indica
tions increased in allied diplomatic
circles here today that the allied re
ply to President Wilson's peace note,
while following in the main the reply
to the central powers, will have some
additional features calculated to make
it more clear whether a continuance
of the negotiations is desired.
If the allied governments are deter
mined to press the war to a military
solution, it is expected that they will
leave no doubt that futrther exchanges
at this time will not be welcomed; if
not, the reply is expected to leave
tho door open for additional corre
spondence. The meeting of the allied premiers
in Rome today was regarded here as
of great importance because the en
tente governments were expected to
ake the opportunity to discuss their
whole fundamental attitude toward
peace and particularly America's part
in securing peace.
The decision reached is expected to
be final so long as the military situa
tion remains unchanged.
Whether the entente reply to the
American note will be forwarded to
the central powers is an open question
It is said such action would be en
tirely permissible diplomatically. The
reply is expected by the end of next
week, reports to both the state depart
ment and the allied embassies being
indefinite as to the exact time, but in
dicating its imminence.
There has been no indication
whether Spain's unfavorable reply to
the president's note saying the present
movement is deemed inopportune for
peace efforts would be made public by
ine state department. It was received
here shortly after its publication in
Madrid. Officials say the text is sub
stantially the same as that contained
in cabled reports.
Somo person or persons in the
south part of the city hus in the past
few days been busy distributing
poison around in that section of the
city, with the result that several val
uable dogs, including the one belong
ing to EJ Mason, and the latest vic
tim is the fine thoroughbred spaniel
of Dr. Sandin, which was poisoned
last night. The animal was a very
valuable one and Dr. Sandin is offer
ing a reward of $10 for the arrest
and conviction of the person admin
istering the poison. This is a very
grave offense in the eyes of the law
and makes one liable to imprisonment
and in addition, is just about as con
temptable a piece of work ah human
being can possibly carry- out.

Dean's Kidney Pills have stood the
test. Mr. Tower endorsed Doan's
over three years ago and again con
firms the story. Could you ask for
more convincing testimony?
O. II. Tower, carpenter, Vine street,
Plattsmouth, says: I suffered from a
dull, heavy pain in the small of my
back. It got so bad I had to get on
my knees and straighten myself up
gradually after I once got down.
There was also difficulty with the ac
tion of my kidneys. The kidney secre
tions were much retarded in passage.
Doctors told me I was troubled by
stone in my bladder and gave me only
temporary relief. After taking one
box of Doan's Kidney Pills, I noticed
the trouble was beginning to disap
pear, and in a short time my health
began to improve in every way."
(Statement given April 10, 1912.)
On February 23, 191G, Mr. Tower
said: "You can continue using my
name as you have in the past when it
comes to recommending Doan's Kid
ney Tills. I am a strong believer in
this old, reliable kidney medicine."
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don't sim

With many people taking cold is a

every morning when you first get out

sleep with your window up. Do this
and you will seldom take cold. When
you do take cold take Chamberlain's
