The Austro-Gerraans have made little advance of real import- ance, and their movements in the strange and difficult country have been attended by frightful losses of men. The slowness of their advance has given the allied troops which landed at Saloniki time to concentrate and these are now moving forward aid the Serbs, and also to check the Bulgarians coming in from the east It is believed by some that the Allies ivill confine themselves to the Bul- leaving the Teutons tc the Serbs. The neutral, attitude of Greece and Rumania has been a disappointment to the Allies, but the belief is still en- tertained that these nations will ev- entually combine against the Teutons.

AGREES WITH THE MAYOR To the Editor of The Herald: pleasure I read Mayor llardie'3 letter to Henry.Ford, H Is deserving and to the uoint.
