here being characterized by tb<

Roumaniani Deal Hard Blows.
Fighting on three fronts, the Rou-
manians have dealt hard blows at the
armies of the central powers. In Do-
brudja, or southeastern HoumaDia,
Roumanian troops aided by Russians
have driven the Bulgarians from the
fortified town of Bazardjlk, or Dob
rlc, which was captured by the Bul-
garians on September 4. The Bui
g&rians also were forced to evacuate
another town in Dobrudja.
In northern Transylvania the Rou-
manians are continuing their offen-
sive in the region Csiz Szereda, have
occupied Olah Toplitza and a number
of other towns. Bucharest records
the repulse of an Austro-Hungarian
attack south of Hemadla, north of
Orsova. on the Danube.
Turkish troops are aiding the Aus
tro-German forces of the Archduke
Charles Francis around Hallcz and in
the Carpathians. Violent fighting
continues between the Zlota Lipu and
the Dneister below Hallcz. Berlin
records the driving out of Russian
detachments that had penetrated Ger
man trenches and the capture by the
Turks of 10,000 Russians. Petrograd
■ays the Austro-German attacks were
repulsed in this region and that stub-
born fighting continues.
Slavs Closer to Hungary.
Russian troops fighting on the Car-
pathian heights is Bukowina, are
pressing closer to Hungary. Berlin
admits a retirement before strong
Russian attacks northwest of Kapul
and this may mean the Russians
again have entered Hungary as th(
fighting there has been Mose to the
Hungarian border. Petrograd says
the Russians have stormed a seriei
of heights south of Baranoft and have
captured 500 prisoners.
What Cost Falkenhayn His Job,

many received at Berne,'' says a dls
patch to the Wireless Press, "the dis-
missal of General Krieh von Falken

cess in the west, the Busslans in Gal-
Icia, according to Petrograd dis-
patches, have bombarded the defenses
of Halicz, southeaat of Uemberg, so
heavily the Austrians are blowing up
the forts and have started a retreat.
The big bridge across the Dniester
river was destroyed. The Russians
have occupied some of the forts
around the city.
Continuing their advance in west-
ern Dobrudja, the German and Bul-
garian forces have captured the old
Bulgarian fortress of Silistria which
lies on the eastern bank of the Dan-
ube, about twenty-five miles north-
enst of Turtukal, and sixty miles
southeast of Bucharest, and about an
equal distance south of the Constanza-
Bucharest railway line. The capture
of the fortress is announced by the
Berlin war office, which adds that the
Roumanians and Russians fighting in
Dobrudja apparently have suffered
very considerable losses during the
last few days.
On the other hand, however, the
Bulgarians are evacuating Varna, the
principal port on the Black Sea, and
near the mouth of the Danube, ac-
cording to a semi-official news agency
dispatch from Odessa.
Other Allied Successes.
The Glnchy success was not the
only one of the day for the entente
allies in the west. On a front of more
than h quarter of a mile the British
gained 300 yards east of High Wood,
and northeast of Pozierea captured
€00 yards or German trenches. In
these engagements the German Cas-
ualties, according to the British offi-
cial statement, were extremely heavy.
French Capture 7,700 Germans.
German attempts to retake posi-
tions in the seighborbood of Berny,
on the Somme front were repulsed.
The fighting in this district has been
confined to small areas. The French
have captured a small wood east of
Bellov-En-Santerre. The French war
tofllce says 7,700 Germans have been
captured since September 3.
Likewise, the French, forcing the
-attack in the Verdun sector, cap-

Provisions In Amendments.
The amendments, all applying to
conditions during existence of a war
in which the United States is not en-
gaged, would authorize the president
"Whenever any country, dependency
or colony shall prohibit the Importa-
tions of any article the product of the
soil or industry of the United States
and not injurious to health or morals,
the president shall have power to pro-
hibit during the period such prohibi-
tions is in force,the importation into
the United States of similar articles,
or in case the United States does not
import similar articles from that coun-
try, then other articles, the products
of such country, dependency or colony.

United States mails and express, tele-
graph, wireless and cable facilities to
citizens of any belligerent nation
which does not accord to American
vessels, citizens, companies or corpora-

ent country enjoy in the United States
or its possessions."

Villa May Attack Pershing.
San Antonio.—The possibility that
Francisco Villa is making his way to
the northwest with the intention of at-
tacking some portion of Gen. J. J.
Pershing's expeditionary force was
considered at Major General Funston's
headquarters. General Funston said j
he had received a telegram from Gen-
eral Bell at El Paso containing the gist
of a report from General Gonzales in
Jure* in which the lattar confirmed
the definite location of most of Villa's
withhold clearance to vessels of such
belligerent nations until "reciprocal
liberty of commerce and equal facil-
ities of trade" have been restored.
The bill creates a tariff commission,
recommended by President Wilson to
consist of six members, not more than
three of whom shall be of one political
| party, the first members to be ap-
pointed for terms of two. four, six,
eight, ten and twelve years.
To Prevent Dumping.
A section of the bill is designed as
a safeguard against the "dumping" of
foreign goods into the United States
at cheap prices after the war.
In sections amending the existing
tariff law the bill provides for in-
creased tariff rates on dyestuffs to be
applied after the European war in or-
der to encourage unbuilding of tha In-
dustry In this country. The duty on
Intermediate dyes would be 15 per
cent advalorem and a special duty of
a pound; on finished dyes, 30 per
cent ad valorem and a special duty of
five cents a pound. Another amend-
ment fixed the duty of print paper
valued at above five cents per pound
at 12 per cent advalorem. Senator
Martine offered an amendment, which
was defeated, to place all print paper
on the free list.
The bill as finally agreed upon pro-
vides for an increase from 1 to 2 pet
cent on the normal income tax wltb
an exemption of $4,000 for married and

WHEN FOES MEET IN AIR
German Lieutenant Tells of Engage-
ment in Which French Aviators
Lost Their Lives.
"One afternoon a French flyer ap-
peared," says a German lieutenant.
"It circled over Douaumont and then
rose high above the clouds. For a long
time it seemed to be just hanging in
the air. And then—from our side there
arose a buzzing, a fierce sharp buz-
zing, and It made straight like a bee
line for the little French flyer, it
went through the clouds and disap-
peared. Nothing could be seen. The
clouds covered all. Five minutes of
suspense passed, and then a shot, and
after that a roaring. We waited
breathlessly, and then two little black
spots were seen breaking through the
clouds. Tiny little spots, and these
spots were the two French aviators.
They grew bigger as they fell. A mo-
ment after the men came the flaming
machine. It came down roaring and
crashing, its wings were yet on fire,
and the red, white and blue of the
tri-colors looked like a revolving
American barber pole. Everything
crushed to the earth, a hopeless man-
gled mass. Again a spot broke through
the clouds. It came swift and straight,
without any spectacular showing, it
was Boelke returning home."
Farm Lands Increase in Value.
The value of farm lands of the Unit-
ed States is estimated at $45.55 per
acre, as compared with $40.85 a year
ago, $40.31 two years ago, $38.10 three
years ago and $36.23 four years ago.
The census reported the value of
farm lands in 1910 as $32.40, and in
1900 as $15.57 per acre.
In recent years the value of farm
lands has been increasing m the rate
of about 5 per cent a year, or approxi-
