received here admit that the battle j
between Moorish tribesmen and tie

27 was a disastrous defeat. The
Moors cut off the communications
with the Spanish outposts and the
main force of the Spaniards was
driven back under the walls of the
city. Fighting continued desperately
in streets of the city. The Spanish
killed and wounded numbered almost
3,000 which takes no account of the
men at the advance posts who evi-
dently were cut off and abandoned to
their fate. (
Mellilla is full of wounded men.
Spain, embroiled in a war with the
fanatical and courageous Moors, its an-

has been desperate fighting in the

cities where barricades have been

Washington, D. C.—The world's
aeroplane record for two men, as to
both time and distance, was broken in
a beautiful flight of one hour, 12 min-
utes and 40 seconds—upwards of 50
miles and at a speed averaging about
40 miles an hour, by Orville Wright at
Fort Myer, with Ueut. Frank J. Lahm
of the army signal corps as passenger.
The former record was made last year
by his brother, Wilbur, joint inventor
with him of the machine in which both
achievements were performed, at Le
Mans, France, with Prof. Painleve, of
the French Institute, as passenger.
That flight was one hour nine minutes
and 31 seconds.
The cheering which heralded the set-
ting of a new mark in the conquest of
the air was led by President Taft in
person, who had sat an intensely in-
terested spectator throughout the
I flight, and who insisted at its conclu-
sion upon personally congratulating
the brothers upon their success. This
success was all-important to the
Wrights in that it completed the first
of two crucial tests of t'jeir machine

Topeka, Kansas.—An organization
known as the Topeka I'nion league
has been formed with branches al-
ready existing in several of the other
large cities of the state, to oppose
the strict enforcement of the pro
hibitory law. Recent attacks in the
courts on the Topeka club, a local so-
cial organization are said to be re-
sponsible for the formation of the new
league. Plans are now under fcot to
oppose in the coming campaign candi-
dates favorable to the strict enforce-
ment of the law. The club also will
work for the enactment of legislation
to wMow liquors to be kept and used at

Branch organizations are said to ex-

Newton and Hutchinson.

KING OF THE AIR.
Washington, D. C.—Orville Wright
attained the zenith of hard earnea
success. In the ten mile cross coun-
try flight in the famous areroplane I
built by himself and his elder brother,
Wilbur, and accompanied by .Lieuten-
ant Benjamin D. Foulois of the army
signal corps, he not only surpassed
the speed requirements of his contract
with the government, but accomplish-
ed the most difficult and daring
flight ever planned for a heavier than
air flying machine. Incidentally he
broke all speed records over a n.eas-
ured course and established beyond
dispute the practicability of the ero-
plane in time of peace or war.
Wright's speed was more than 42
miles an hour. He made the ten mile
flight in 14 minutes and 42 seconds,
including the more than 20 seconds re
quired for the turn beyond the line at
Sputer Hill, the southern end of the
course. He attained a height in cross-
ing the valley of .Four Mile run of
nearly 500 feet, and the average alti-
tude of his practically level course
was about 200 feet.

gives the particulars. He says:
"I naturally watch the effect of dif-

with pneumonia and during his conva-
lescence did not seem to care for any
kind of food.
"I knew something of Grape-Nuts
and its rather fascinating flavor, and
particularly of its nourishing and
nerve-building powers, so I started the
boy on Grape-Nuts and found from
the first dish that he liked it.
"His mother gave it to him steadily i
and he began to improve at once. In
less than a month he had gained j
about sight pounds and soon became |
