to be oh hla way to, tho Eastern theatre
It Is In tho east that well-informed
persons expect the next great hnttlos to
occur, and tho arrival of tho Kaiser thero
may be 'a signal for a renewal of the great
German offensive against tho Rueslnris,
which was halted by the Servian cam
paign i. .
Germans In gcnoral bellevo the var
will be won In Iluisln. The deadlock In
tho west Is one tha can be broken bv
neither Teutons nor Allies without enor
mous losses that uoihl make victory In
such operations ar empty one, according
to some German experts. They point out
that the length of the front In Russia
makes tho Eastern theatre of war the
only ono In which there can be any exer
cise of military strntogy.
The belief Is growing in Berlin that
there will be no campaign against Palon
lea. By Its victory in Serbia Germany
accomplished Its two-fold purpose of
making Bulgaila Its ally and stopping
the transportation of ammunition to Rus
sia from Salonlcn. Nothing further would
he gained by tho capture of Salonlca,
tho experts say.
Tho enlistment of Bulgnrla as an ally
of tho Teutons and the severance of
communication between Salonlca and
Ilurslu Is a blow at the Ruslans that has
been little appreciated except In Berlin.
Tho Czar's nrmy'got a largo part of Its
ammunition supplies from England and
Franco through Salonlca, Noiv It Is de
pendent upon Its own exertions and upon
the supplies that enn be carried oer the
Trans-Siberian railway or taken In

T. Mellor Tyson, of 1506 Spruce street,
seeks to break an agreement made by

Brother and sister have left each other
the bulk of their estates. Between the time
of his tlrst attempt to end his life and his

each to the German and Rush Hospitals,
and one to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.
