Situation Serious for Allied Cause.
London Oct. 12. Servia is now being
attacked from the north and east. Tbe
Austro-Germans after tbeir capture of
Belgrade and Semendria, are advancing
southward, while tbe Bulgarians, have
forces to endeavor to interrupt com
munications north and south of Nish,

tack the Serbians on the flank if they
are driven back by the German Field
Marshal Von Mackensen.
ine situation is admitted to oe a very
serious one not only for Serbia, but for
the whole allied cause. It is asserted
that the Serbians, are inflicting very
heaVy losses both on the Austro-Germans

chance of making any prolonged re
