FOREIGN WAR SITUATION All Europe on Verge of War--Eagerly Awaits Action of Great Britain-Austrians Have Invaded Servia Russia Is Mobilizing on German Frontier and Troops of the Kaisar Have Entered Belgium at Two Points. Defying England-France Ready and Martial Law Declared. \With Germany opposed to Russia, and both eager to tight, Austria HIungary and Servia, the recent orig.inators of the "war cry," are now standing at bay awaiting to see the "backing'" they can each draw from the various powers before plunging into what now bids fair to be the most deadly conflict the world has ever known. The arriy will be Austria, with her -1,320,000 soldiers; Germany, 7,000.000; and Italy, 1,370.000; as against Russia, 4,71i2,300; France :',s"i7,700; and Great Britain, 1,072,017; with the other nations neutral. Great Britain mobilized ier armies Tuesday and France is inobilizing her armies to the last man, while martial law rules the land. London, Aug. 3.-All the great European nations except Italy, and most of the secondary pow ers, are mobilizing with all their energy. Italy, whllich declared her neu trility, will begin to mobilize of licially tomorrow, although the process lprobably is well under way. Great Britain's mobilization is nearly completed, but she has not announced that she will j',ii in the general war. To-night war ottficially extend ed between Austria and Ger nany on one side and Russia, Servia and Montenegro on the otler. There had been no offi cial declaration of war between Germany and France on either side, but to-night the German amulbassador in Paris received or ders to demand his passports. The most important event in the past 24 hours was Germany's de nmand upon iBelgimr:i in the form of a 12 hour ultiimatum that the G-rman tropj,'s be permitted to cross lHelg;ium to the French fron tier, c Iul'lel w Ithl the promise that Htbelgian interrity should re mnoin ijinim aired a:it the endl if the war and t!ll t lB,!giium would be com1pensIte 1.

Sir Edward (;1:1x , 3i'itish Sec retr:;'y f 'r ' lrei il i Aif',ir,'-, ma:ide a statement in the Il''u e of Corn mons indicating that Great Brit ain's interests and obligations could not permit her to submit to the violation of the Belgian terri tory. This virtually left the de cision as to whether Great Brit ain should make war to the public opinion. There is no doubt that British sentiment is for war. The appeal of the pacifists get no hearing. Not one man in a hundred in London seemingly wants th na tion to remain neutral. Germany, through her diplo mats, has tried to keep Britain out by a virtual offer to refrain from using her navy against France as the price of Great Britain's neutrality. But the English people clearly are con vinced that their honor and vital interests compel them to protect Belgium, France and other na tions which are their closest neighbors. There is a report tonight that Holland has been invaded thru the province of Limburg, The people of Dutch kingdom, re solved to go to any extremity, are said to be opening the dikes and flooding the country, which would make the passage of an army impossible. The British Admiralty an nounces that the mobilization of of the navy was completed in all respects at 4 o'clock this morning. This was due to the measures taken and the voluntary response of the reserve men in advance of the royal proclamation. It was announced officially in Paris tonight that a German force had invaded France near Cirey. Details were awaited in regard to the battle said to have been fought yesterday between Ger. man and Russian fleets off the Aland Islands, and said to have been a German victory. Whether the Russian vessels merely re tired after a reconnoissance, as was considered probable, or whether there was serious fight ing, remained in, d6.ubt. Several telegraph and cable lines still hhld back news of the fighting along, the Franco-Gerraana frontier, and few details of ea. gageineits between Russian and G(erman forces are available. Mon take notice! Do)n't buy your fall shoes until you give ours the once over. The Boston Store. how Is Your County Fair? Once again we urge the im portance of the county fair. "But why a fair?" some one asks Oh, well, why any effort for the good of the country or state? For though the fairs. both coun ty and state, are for the most part organized as private associ ations, they gennerally repre sent praiseworthy p'ttriotism on the part of the backers. and too often their reward is only the privilege of going down into their pockets to meet some- de ficiency occasioned, in part per. haps, by your failure to make an exhibit or to attend. The answer in brief as to why you shou'd have a fair is, for the )public good-And for giving in dividuals new ideals and for stimulating community pride. But these fairs are social or ganizttions as well, and so help ful in this respect that it is questionable whether in any other way they serve so large a purpose. Bringing together the representatives of every town ship at some central place like the county seat leads the people to know one another, a knowl edge as powerful with the com munity as the "know thyself" with the individual. They are likewise educational. The aver age fair, county or state, has something for the visitor who goes with his eyes open and mind alert. Moreover, our fairs are put ting larger stress on these edu cational features each year. The midway is lessening, the gamb ling devices and those who play there are on the decrease, and the drinking places have gone or are going. This new order of things means much for the larger fairs, but more for the smaller ones, which have suffered from the false impression that special at tractions beyond their financial reach were necessary to their success. Numerous most* suc cessful county fairs were held last year with their agricultural, educational, and livestock exhib its for their sole drawing cards. If your county isn't ,in line with the progressive counties with fairs, why not you and your neighbor get busy at once? By a little determined etiort on the plart of all classes, you may have a fair yet--inay at least make a good start in 1914, and do better next year-Progressive Farmer. Stops Pain, Heals Wounds. Royaline Oil is STRONGER THAN THE OTHER ANTICEPTICS. That gives it GREATER POWER TO EASE PAIN, inside or outside, man or beast. Also makes it go further and give LARGER VALUE FOR THE MONEY.

AgaiLa.a i..iýdr Illay London, Aug. 4.--(;eat Britain declared war on Gerrn :ny to-night The momentious decision of the British government, for whicbh the whole world has been waiting, came before the expiration of the time limit set by Great Britain in her ultimatum to Germany de manding a satisfactory reply on the subject of Belgian neutrility. Germany's reply was the sum mary rejection of the request that Belgian neutrility should be re spected. The British ambassador at Ber lin thereupon received his pass ports, and the British government notified Germany that a state of war existed between the two coun tries. All Europe is in arms, and Asia may take a hand. Japan is making ready to live up to her alliance with Great Britain under certain eventuali ties. The Dominion of Canada is pre paring to aid Britain with men and ships, and Australia is tak ing active steps to do her share. It is reported that French war ships captured the German cruis ers Goeben and Breslau and sunk the cruiser Panther. 'The House of Commons voted $525,000,000 for emergency pur poses, an'd the German imperial Parliament have provided for a fund of $1,250,000,000 to meet the expenses of war. Sheriff Sale-No. 2465. S.
