Hostilities Suspended on Whole
Jassy, Roumania, Thursday, Dcc. 6.
--It has been decided that the liou
manian troops shall associate them
selves with the Russians in the pro
posed armistice, - though the ou
manirns !!ave rejected every attempt
at fraternalization, says an oflicial an
nouncemnent made here today.
Hostilities were suspended today on
the whole front.
There have been several reports
from lierlin and Vienna that the liou
manians had joined with the lussians
in the negotiation with the Germans
for an armistice, but official confirma
tion heretofore has .heen lacking and
on Wednesday an of11lal denial of
them was issued in London.
The loumanian troops are holding;
positions along the Western Moldavian
frontier and the line across Southern
Moldavia to the Black Sea at -which the
Germans and Austrians were halted
at. the conclusion of their drive in
Russian troops are interspersed with
the Roumanians, and the withdrawal
of the Russians from active operations
would make It almost impossible for
the ltouman ans menaced by the lul
garians from the south as well as by
the German and Austrian armies of
the east, of vastly superior size, to
carry out an independent military pol
('hunherlaln's ('ough Iemedy.

colds and croup, but. is also pleasant
and safe to take, which is important
when medicine must be given to chil
dren. Many mothers pave given it
their unqualified endorsement.
