SUPREME THRUST AT SERBS Servia, with her army more or less rehabilitated, is described in London as attacking the dual monarchy from the south with renewed vigor. Austria declares that the latest Servian attempts have been repulsed. Nevertheless credenc'e is given in England | to the reports that Germany is plan-; ning to throw troops to, the assistance of her allies in a third attempt to crush the country of the Serbs.

The mobilization will be continued until 600,000 arc ready for the field. It is exoected that Switzerland will be asked to take charge of Roumanian interests In Germany and Austria, the Petit Parisien says, but it adds that the Cabinet has made no definite arrangements as regards this. .\USTRIAN POSITION CRITICAL The present positions of Au-stna-Huiigary, according to observers who today are giving expression to their views, is most critical. Threatened from the east and from the south, and wiih lloumania preparnig to cast her lot with the allies, the war is bniifi brought to her front door.

Lord Hal-dane, however, so far as suoh p de-1 berate- and careful : statesman is l.kely to express his mind tor the whole world to lieari clearlv gave an affirmative an.swer to questions as to whether, after a few months' experience, voluntary recruiting appeared adequate, and whether it procured men as fast as they cc>uld be equipped. Lord Haldane made a special point of the fact that "compulsory -�service is not foreign to the constitution of this country." This of course IB- a truism in the same wav as would, be the affirmatloo that the press g�g has never been aiiolished Ott; Monday evening the iLib- * eralsv''ct iiethbridge will meet > in i-the Sbns hi England hall, -rpptils' V ed.
