Mystery surrounds the movements of Von Mackenzen's vast army, and whether it is being held for a new coup against the Russians, or wheth- er he is transferring it across to the western frontier, is uncertain. Suf- fice it to say that the genera! move against the Russians towards War- saw has practically ceased for the present. More fierce fighting at the Dardan- elles is reported as a result of which the Allies have gained some ground. fact. It is this 'puliltc-lHMUimiied' at- titude on tho part of some people who are continually harping on their rights and who forpet thoir obltga- lions that is responsible more than anything else for the suspicion that i6 'too often entertained iu respect to corporations."

Here, says Hit Chicago Daily News, are some of the things Britain is doing: "1. Holding tho seas for the ships of her Allies as well .is for her own. "2. Protecting the coasts of her Allies as well as her own. "3. Strugs-'lins in co-operation with the French to smash the Turks and win the Balkans for the Allied cause. "4.
