The following day saw the declara (ion by Great Britain .of a state of war with Germany, and two days iat- er the French invaded southern Al ice. These events were quicklv followed by an affirmation on the .part of Italy of her neutrality, by an Austrian in- vasion of Serbia, and by the.sending by Japan of an ultimatum to Ger many. This had to do with the Ger m LIIO uuim, pied Jaroslay, after several days .of ferocious fighting. German cruisers-which liad been stationed in foreign waters at the.op- ening of the war, bad by this time given a good account of themselves.

Italy In On May Italy declared war on Austria-Hungary, after having de- nounced early in the the Triple. Alliance treaty.
