London, Aug. 14.���A Reuter dispatch from St. Petersburg says a message has been received from Vilna
stating that a German aeroplane,
which was making observations of

occupants, four German officers, were
killed  according to  the dispatch.
London, Aug^ 15.-1:15 a.m.���A despatch to lleuter's Agency from its
Brussels correspondent says:
"Excitement prevailed here this
iFriday) afternoon when It was reported that tbe Germans were about
to advance In great force into Brussels and Antwerp. This report was
immediately denied and officials give
the assurance from military quarters
that there was nothing in the disposition of the German right wing to indicate that a march on Brussels and
Antwerp waB Intended-
Great Events at Hand.
"Nevertheless It is evident that the
decisive events are imminent and it
is doubtful whether the official publication in Brussels papers of a proclamation warning civilians to abstain
from acts of hostility against the
enemy, as these may entail terrible
reprisals on the innocent population
and the decision of the government to
cease the publication of Official bulletins on the situation are likely to reassure the public.
People Without News.
"The appeal to the patriotism of
the press means that for some time
tlie people will be totally without
news. The town is given over to
rumor. An issue of Le Soir, giving
the news of an alleged German advance was suppressed by order of the
authorities and the offending item
was deleted before further sale of
the paper was allowed. It must be
remembered, on the other hand, that,
owing to the smallness of the country and the proximity of the great
city to the actual battlefield, the general staff is obliged to exercise extreme caution in order to maintain
the secrecy necessary to the success
of its operations."

Austria Will Have Another
Account to Settle With
Great Britain-
London. Aug. 14.���The Exchange
Telegraph company's Home correspondent sends the outline of an official announcement from Vienna to
Rome, notifying the Italian government of Great Britain's declaration
if war on Austria.   The note says:
"Austria has declared was against
Servia, an independent state, and for
i cause which did not affect international politics and cannot be con-
_k!*red as the cause for the present
Kuropeaii  war."
Great Britain's note to Austria, the
statement continues, fails to point out
the fact that Austria was obliged to
declare war against Itussia, because
Russia's mobilization threatened Austria. It Is denied that Austria sent
troops to the frontier, a fact, the
statement says, which France already
know from the Austrian ambassador.

For centuries the Turk has been a menace to Europe.
In former ages he overran the entire southern portion of
that continent. He founded an advanced civilization in
Spain and he hammered at the gates of Vienna. He taught
the Christian nations the tricks of war and the arts of
peace. He won much territory and lost much, but it always took a great man to beat him, a Eugene or a Sobieski.
Later years have seen the Turk confined to a small
portion of the southeast. His glory is greatly dimmed
and his efficiency much reduced, but he still is the ever-
ready trouble-maker of Europe and in the present war
crisis he is not conducting himself as the exception that
proves the rule. i

The Discovery of "Fruit-a-tives" Has Brought
Health and Happiness to Thousands of
People all over the Dominion.
"Fruit-a-tives" Is the Only Medicine   Made
from Fruit Juices.   It is Pleasant to Take
and Acts Gently on the Whole System.
FRUIT Juice consists of 01% water and !���% solid material.
This solid material consists of about 8 parts sugary substance
and one part of an intetiselv bitter substance, which is the
medicinal or curative principle of fruit. In order to get the full
benefit of frttit in the ordinary way, one would have to eat huge
quantities of fresh fruit. By the discovered process of making
"Fruit-a-tives". the bitter material in fruit juice is made to grow
or increase and thus a stronger fruit juice is created. Then, this
stronger fruit extract is mixed with valuable tonics and antiseptics
and made into tablets. Thus, we have concentrated and intensified
fruit juices, and the practical use of Fruit as a medicine is brought
within reach of all. ._,___       , ���
I ike fruit juice, "Pruit-a-tives" act. on the great blood purifying organs
of the bodv���the liver, bowels, kidnevs and skin-and stimulates all these parts
to renewed activity. "Fruit-a tives" is the most powerful liver stimulant in
the world, and by it the kidnevs and skin are stimulated to do more work.
The splendid nerve tonics and antiseptics incorporated in "Fruit-stives" make
this medicine the finest of nerve restorers,  while germs in the stomach and
bowels are destroyed. 	
"Fruit-a-tives" will cure Indigestion or Weak Digestion, Dyspepsia,
Kidney Disease, Constipation, Biliousness and Liver Trouble, Backache,
Rheumatism and Rheumatic Pains, Sciatica, Lumbago, Neuralgia, Headaches
and all indications of Impure Blood.
Remember, that "Pruit-a-tives" is the only medicine in the world that
is made of fruit. There is nothing else as good, because there is no other
preparation anvthing like "Fruit-a-tives". If you cannot get "Fruit-a-tives"
right in vour neighborhood, we will send you a supply postpaid, on receipt of
price ��� 60c. a box, 6 for $2.50, trial size, 25c. Fruit-a-tives Limited, Ottawa.

log house at Crescent beach.
"Syringa Lodge" is one of the handsomest homes on the beach at this
popular summering place and is built
of peeled cedar logs. Its large living
room has a wide lire place of rounded
stone and three large doors opening
on the broad veranda, and upstairs
there are four bedrooms each with a
sleeping porch. On Monday the
guests assembled on the veranda
where Mrs. J. U Dunn, of Vancouver,
presided over the tea cups, and had
to assist her the daughter of the
hostess and a number of their friends.
The guests included Mrs. Thomas
Walker. Mrs. XV. T. Reid. Mrs.

In the evening Mrs. Gilley again entertained her friends, over one hundred of them assembling on the beach

choruses whiled. away the time while
the guests popped corn, roasted chestnuts and toasted marsh mallows.

hits off the local color of Belgrade
very happily indeed:
Wonderful  Picture.
The   sunset   sky,   against    which   1
first  saw   Belgrade,   was  like  a   crimson   and   orange   and   purple     moth,
haired with colors as hard and clear

white on its hills, all its windows on
fire with light;  a  long  white mound, j
and there in a semicircle above  wat- j
_r and a great plain, with a point of]
mud   running  down   into  the    water.I
Beyond the city, as you enter Servia,!
there are  valleys  in  which  the  trees!
grow as thick as grass, bulrushes tuft- I

courses,  great   fields  of  melons   with i
their dry stalks, und often a  kind of1

and l.'owers and green leaves. Fine
savage old men in tatters wander
about the outskirts of the market, all

Advertising succeeds when what is advertised
deserves to succeed, and attractive advertising cannot succeed otherwise. To be afraid to advertise is
almost a confession that what one really fears is the
quality of the goods or else the management of the
store or business, as this alone can endanger the
money invested in publicity.
" Compared with the difficulty of buying for the
retail trade, the difficulty of advertising the goods
thus bought, so as to sell them, is trifling. The grocer, the druggist, the men's furnisher and the general
dealer have to estimate, from their own observation
and intuition, what the people of their town are likely
to buy if it is shown���a matter requiring considerable skill. A mistake will land them with goods for
which there is no market, in some cases with goods
that will go out of fashion if they do not move them
within a limited period.
There is room for all sorts of miscalculations.
The quality may be wrong, prices may be too high,
the buyer may not fit the fancy of the prospective
customers. Every dealer has to meet and combat
these dangers. Greater business ability, judgment
and courage are required for this than lor merely
letting the public know what goods are on offei'l
The retail advertising problem is two-sided. A
retailer wants to increase his trade with his existing
customers and he also wants to make new customers.
Thoughtful and well-planned advertising will accomplish both ends. With a good article or a good store
to advertise there is no reason at all why operations
on quite a small scale should not be promptly profitable.
It is a great mistake to think that success can
only be won with a large initial outlay. No beginner
would be justified in ordering full page or half page
advertisements, but this is not a serious handicap.
A $200 advertisement may leave no more profit by
the time it is paid for than  a
though it will sell more goods.
$5  advertisement,
If a store is well managed the new trade brought
by every advertisement will more or less be permanent. The work is naturally half done when the people are brought to the counter, but they must be
so treated when they come there that they will come
again and keep coming.

Unless instructions come to the
contrary Frank Van Horst, convicted
cf murdering a Japanese fisherman in
the Gulf of Georgia, will be hanged In
the court yard of the provincial jail
on Wednesday morning next at 8
Sheriff Armstrong, who has charge
of ail arrangemi nts, is expecting
won! from Ottawa any moment to
proceed with the preparations for the
grim ceremony. Van Horst, who has
a criminal record on both sid<s of
the international boundary, was found
guilty In the last Vancouver assize
court of murdering the Jap by slaying him in his fishing boat, and
afterwards throwing the body overboard. Van Horst with a man named
Lester, who died in th. Vancouver
jail some month . ago, were escaping
from arrest to Vancouver island.
Lester, before his death, made a d -
position that Van Horst killed the
Jap for fear of him giving information as to their whereabouts. The
murderer was afterwards captured on
one of the small islands in the gulf
near Kriday harbor and turned over
to the provincial police by the Washington  state authorities.
Another hanging is scheduled for
September 1 at the provincial jail, although it is very likely that a commutation of sentence will be received
from Ottawa before that date. This
is the case of Trunk Bavacqua, who
was found builty of slaying his partner operating a rond house In Squamish district on the Pacific (Ireat
Eastern railway route.
Extenuating circumstances were
brought out at the trial held In Vancouver and It is very probable that
the jury's recommendation for mercy
will be answered by the Ottawa authorities.

Victoria, Aug. 14.���That the forces
arrayed against Germany are overwhelmingly superior, and she must
-ventually be borne under by the
sheer weight of onslaught, is the opinion of Lt.-Col. Andrew Haggard, 1).
S. O., who spent yesterday in the
city, having come down from Cowichan lake for a brief business visit, j
Col.   Haggard,  in   a   survey   of  the |
alignment of forces In  Kurope, spoke i
interestingly   of   the   progress   of  the
war  thus  far.     lie    Is    certain    that!
France will this time givev.a far different account of herself t'.iat was the
case in the Franco-Prussian war. Her
military organization today is infinitely superior to what it was in 1870.
Strong   Fortresses.
Col.   Haggard   was    privileged,    in
1872, shortly ufter he    entered    the
British    army,    to    inspect  the  forts!
which   had   been   erected   by   France |
along  her   border  after   the  close  of!
the war.    Even then they were splen-j
did   for the  purpose of  defence, and'
when one remembers that they have;
heen Immeasurably strengthened and.
improved   since  that  date,   it  will   be'
understood   that   they   today   present
an almost  impregnable barrier to the !
onslaughts  of  the  Germans.
The Germans, being well aware of
the strength of the French fortresses,
essayed by a bold coup to throw their
armies into France by way of Luxemburg and Belgium. They have been
checked at l.iege by the Belgians. And
a further and more serious check undoubtedly awaits them on the soil of
Belgium now that both France and
Creat Britain have thrown armies into
that   field  of operations.

Troubles Began Early.
I    Ills  troubles  began  early    In    his
j reign, as a few months after he came
to     the    throne    dissensions    arose
throughout  the   land   which   iuti
j lowed by external aggressions.
In 1853 the list, of tragic incidents
I which have marred his reign  began
Martin, i when an attempt was made to assassinate   him.     Early   one   afternoon   in
j February   of   that   vear  the  emperor
! was taking his daily walk on  tiie an-
! rient bastions which used to encircle
Vienna, attended by a single aide-decamp,   Count O'Dorrell. The two men
hud  stopped  to view  the  movements
of  the  soldiers     who     were     drilling
Suddenly a  man ran up the na: row-
steps leading to the bastion and dealt
the  emperor a   violent  blow   with    a
knife.    The  blow   was  aimed  at  the
neck, but it struck a bone behind t ie
ear   and   did   not   Inflict     a     serious
wound, although the concussion caused   partial   blindness    for    a     time.

The hopes of the emperor now   be-
came  centered  on  the  crown  prince,
who grew to manhood universally be- j
loved by all bis subjects.   Always of a
shy and retiring disposition, the young
prince   spent   much   of   his   time   in |
shooting and became a taxidermist of
no mean ability, mounting up the re-
suits of his  shooting  expeditions  for
the   National    Museum.     He   married
the  I'rincess  Stephanie,    the    second ;

at Meyerling not  very  far from Vien-

of t'.ie baroness.    All sorts of rumors
were afloat as to how the couple met
death, and it was finally given out as
suicide, hui  as suicide was so abhorrent  to  the  Catholic  church   the   empress refused to believe that  her son
had taken his life.    However,  no effort  wa:, made to find the murderer
and  the  case   Is  still  known   in   Austria a.s  the  "Meyerling   mystery."
The death of the crown prince had
an alarming effect on the empress,
who was devoted to her son. She never appeared at court after his death,
