London, Oct. 22. Serbia's military po
sition is critical. Hammered by superior
forces on two sides, her armies are threat
ened with being crushed as no army has
been crushed during the war. Not only
are these facts admitted in England,
France and Russia, but tney are reflected
in the official Serbian statements.
The key to the escape from this posi
tion is the speed with which France and
England can throw forces north from Sa
loniki to relieve the pressure from the
Austrian! and Germans in the north and
the Bulgarians in the east.
Greece still hesitates, but unofficial re
ports say ahe will decline England's offer
of the island of Cyrpus aa the price of
joining the allies.

Russians seem to be in the ascendency

New York, Oct. 22,--Arlington, Va,
talked by telephone with Paris, France,
yehterday. Honolulu, 8,700 miles from
Paris, also heard the operator talking
from Arlington.
lo X. U. Webb, a telephone engineer,
fell the honor of being the first man to
span with his voice the space between
the old world and the new. Sitting in
the powerful navy wireless plant at Ar
lington, Va., at an hour previously desig

phere would then be cleared of static and
electrical disturbance, Mr. Webb hort!y
after midnight talked with H. K. Shreeve

He paused a few seconds and then be
gan to count: "One, two, three, four; j
one, two, three, four." Pari did not
know what wsa coming; they might not
hear, him clearly, if at al). So he count
ed again and again. The jumble of niean-
ngles figures was repeated aeveral times
more and next came the enunciation of
several test sentence which he had jot-
tea down in advance. J liese were re
peated, too. More counting, and finally
the farewell, tnree time:
"Goodbye, Shreeve!" a aue. "Good
bye, Shreeve! Goodbye, Shreeve!"
A cable message to the American Tele
phone & Telegraph Co. yesterday from
Pari said Webb "Hell.," and "good

when Frank Austin, aged 30 years, a
farmer, was shot through the heart and
stomach, dying a. few moments later,
Austin ana banford Stevenson were
driving through Kden notch, when they
thought they saw a rabbit.- Austin got
out of the wagon and went to the back
to pull out the gun. As he did so the
gun accidentally exploded. After the
accident Stevenson tried to get Austin
into the wagon but could not do so. He
then went for help. When he returned
the man was dead. "
Authorities were summoned and the
body was removed to the young man's
home, about a mile and, a half out of
the village, where las grandmother, Mrs.
Henry Curtis, keeps house for him. A

Having Their Innings in Fair at Howland
With the auspicious opening of its fair
in the Howland hall last evening, tlie
Harro Athlctia club is having its first in
ning in this season of bazaars and very
prolific of revenue was the opener, too,
In a bulky schedule of fairs and tho like
that aro planned for the coming autumn
ana winter months, tho B. A. C. three
night jollitioution, tlie second annual af
a . X ..... . . .
lair ot its kind, promises to set a still
pace for thostv that are to follow. Last
night a crowd of people swarmed the sev
eral booths which are attractively ar
ranged in the north end of the hall and
at the height of the evening there was a
capacity company of dancers. Mere worn
an is doing her bit in making the bazaar
a success, as was evidenced by the pres
ence in tho booths of B. A. C. fans of
the type that roots most ardently in the
face ot the heaviest odds but seldom
plays the national game. ..
J'atron of the fair began to appear bv
T:M o clock, when the doors were swung
open, but tho crowd did not reach its
height until the program began and it did
not shrink perceptibly when the hall was
cleared and Carroll's orchestra musicians
struck into the first waltz in the dance
order. Manager David McDonald of the
club s baseball team, forgetting that the
habits of the gatckeper are not the hab-
ts of a ticket merchant in a strictly
stormproof dance ball, started in to sup
ply each patron with a rain check, but
his lapse- was quickly noticed by others
on the committee and a small-sized con
gestion at the door was soon dissolved.
The crowd got its admission.tickets with
out any trouble after that. .
Striking color and electrical effects are
conspicuous features in the line of booths
erected 'for the sale of almost everything
nyone could wish to purchase at fair
i me. Colored crepe festoons, B. A. C.
banners, evergreen and autumn leaves
enter into the color scheme in each booth
The sale of confectionery is in churge of
Mrs. Alfred Morgan, Mrs. Bert liartlett
and Misses Mary Smart and Ethel Mor-
an. ahe fancy work booth is presided
over by Airs. Henry Petrie and the mis
cellaneous department is in charge of
William Riley and Alfred Morgan. Miss
nme Nichols and Mrs. Silvio Giudici are
looking after the apron counter and the
ice cream venders are Miss hmnia Ger-
betti and Miss Ruth Woodcock. Dante
duzzi is the head salesman among the
dolls in left field and James Parker is
the man behind the nickle till at the
hooting gallery.
An orchestra overture In the opeuing
entertainment was followed by vocal go-
ith Charles Gibbons and Miss Teona
Lamb as the principals. Harry Clarke in
Harry Lauder act, George Troup, jr., on
s violin and George Murray in a aeries
Indian club stunts were the other fea-
res. The participant were loudly ap
plauded and each responded gracefully
with an encore.
Dancing wa the one diversion that
kept the fairgoers on their toes from 0
'clock until after midnight. The floor
managers were William Johnston, Wil
liam Stuart, Bert Bartlett, Frank Leith
and David McDonald. The general com
mitte, to the members of which a good
deal of credit is due for the time and la
bor which they have given, is composed
ot ilavia MeUonald. Henry Petrie. Bert
Bartlett, James Gallagher, Dante Peduz-
zi, Francis Leith and Alfred Morgan.
jo-nlght the booth will be opened for
busines early. A detail of cadets from
Norwich university will be the feature
attraction in one of their drills and there
is dancing to follow. The committee re
ceived a message from Norwich late yes
terday to the effect that the detail se
lected for the drill will ! nearly twice
as numerous as the corps which gave a
drill at last year's B. A. C. fair. Th
fair will close SaturiSv evening, when
dancing will be the main drawing card.
