LONDON. Nor. 10. French forces

the Serbian legation In Athens from

BERLIN, Nov. 10. (By Wireless
ta Sayville.) A defeat for the
French and British troops in south

scribed as enormous, la reported in a
dispatch from Sofia by way of Buda

South ef Nlh the railway is undoubt

far as Vales, since Leskovae has been
reeently taken by them, but south of
Vales in the neighborhood of Krlvolak,
the situation has taken a turn daeldedly
more favorable for the allies. The Bul
garians are still persistently attacking
this point, but flalonlkl dispatches report
they have been driven back no fewer
than four times, and the net result of
the Bulgarian' desperate attempt to work
themselves behind the Serbian army has
been heavy losses without their gaining
a foot of territory. 1

The loan by the allies to Qreece, defi

thought, tend to cement friendly senti

the entente powers in Greece do mere

ments to quicken that country's benevo

Reports differ as to the probability of
the dissolution of the present Greek cham
ber, some stating that dissolution -is Im
minent and a decree en the point of being
promulgated, and others that former Pre
mier Vsnlselos and his party are pre
pared to support the Skouloudls cabinet.
General opinion seems to be that all the
elements are anxious to avoid a political
contest under the present disturbed con

BayvUle. "The third Italian offensive
la the Isonao district ean bs considered
to have definitely failed," says the
Cologne Gesette's correspondent at
quoted by the Overseas News agency,
"since only feeble attempts to advance
are still being made by the Italians.
"During this last struggle the Italians
havee uffered Immense losses, besides
having had .S7 men captured, among
whom were lot officer. The Italian sao-
rtflces in killed and wounded and prison

Auatro-Hungartans having maintained
all their positions."

age from Temeavar. Hungary, across
southern Hungary, northeastern Berbla
and northwestern Bulgaria, is reported
In a despatch from Sofia given out by

Of this number 770 passengers, a num
ber of them Injured, are reported to have
been landed at Blserta, while a later mes
sage stated two of ths Ancona's boats
with fifty-four of ths crew had landed
at Cape Ron, Tunis, about trrenty miles
east of Blserta.
The Ancona, according to the local
agents, was scheduled to sail from Naples
yesterday. After leaving Naples the
steamer would pass through the Tyrrhe
nian sea and enter the Mediterranean be
tween Sardinia and Sicily. The meager
dispatches Indicate that the Ancona was
sunk within the comparatively small tri
angle, the points of which are the south
ern end of Sardinia, the western end of
Sicily and Blserta, Tunis. '
Austrian and German submarines have
been active in this region of late, ac
cording to cable reports.
Aarents Cable for Mt.
As soon as the local agents learned of
the sinking they cabled the home office
st Naples for a complete passenger list.
At present nothing Is known here con
cerning the personnel of the paaeengera.
but Mr, Sol art thought the number of
first rabln passengers eighty-three as
given In a cable report today, was too
high. He said ths Ancona had accom
modations fcr only fifty first cabin pas
sengers. On the last three trips from
Naples to New Tork, Mr. Solarl said,
more than half of the Anoona's passen
gers have been women and children,
owing to the fact that few men of mili
tary age are leaving Italy.
The Ancona had not been used as a
transport during the present war, the
agent said, nor has the vessel csrrled any
munitions. It has been a favorite steamer
with opera singers and musicians coming
to this country. Tltta Ruffo, the baritone,
was reported aboard the steamer, but this
waa discredited by his ' brother In Chicago.
Probably Itearntar Course.
The message from Malta stating that
four passengers and forty-one of the
crew of the Anoona have been lAnded
there, falls to aid In fixing the approxi
mate position of the steamer when It was
sunk. Malt Is about tor) miles southeast
of Cape Bon, where two of the Ancona's
The. fact that the large number of sur
vivors have been landed at Blserta, east
of Cape Bon, la taken by steamship men
here to Indicate that the Ancona was on
the regular course when sunk. Tills
course, it wss said, lies closer to the
Afrlcsn coast than te that of Sardinia.
" Stopped by British,
for several months before Italy's en
trance Into the war the Ancona waa en
gsged In carrying home Italian reservists
from this country snd supplies for the
Italian government. On one of its trips
from New Tork to Naples, late in
August last year, the Anoona was
stopped by the British at Gibraltar and
twenty-four Germane and one Austrian
wsre taken off the ship. Late last sum
mer the Ancona left here for Italy wltU
7l.0oo bushels of wheat, I.OflO tons of bay
and 500 horses for the Italian govern
ment.' On ths aame Voyage It carried X
Italians In ths steerage who went bark
because It was said at the time that they
could not get work in the New York
The Aneona had been In the Italian Una
service for sis years and without its
cargo was valued at more than 11,000,000.
The Aneona played a prominent part
In the rescue of passengers - from the
burning Fabre liner Han t' Ann In mid
Atlanllo last September 11. It came to
the Sant'Anna's aid and took oif more
than SuO issengers. The Sant'Anna
carried more than I.O04 paasehgers, but
succeeded in checking the fire and pro-
reeded to the A so res without further as
sistance from the Aneona.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. The
American steamer Zeelandla was
forcibly searched by a party from a
British cruiser last week while lying
In the port of Progreso, Mexico. The
American consul there reports the
cruiser now Is lying outside, pre
sumably waiting to seise the ship.
On the faoe of such a report as the
consul sent, even though Incomplete, the
official conclusion here Is that the Brlt
Inh naval authorities not only violated
Mexican neutrality, but far exceeded
their rights in forcibly searching an
American ship In a neutral port.
Movement of lUelaadlsu
The Zeelandla figured much of late in
reports of the Invest'gatlons of British
agents on the trail of ships supposed to
be fitting out In the United Statee for
sitae on oil-carrying ships from Mex
ican fields, where the British navy draws
a great proportion of Its supply of fuel
On October 7 ths Zeelandla, formerly
a Hawaiian ship, mysteriously left Pen-
sacola, Fla., at night for Tamplco, Mex- i
Ico, carrying a large stock of provisions
and manned principally by Germans. An
American flag painted on Its hull had
been painted over and it was reported
that while at sea it flew the German
colors, although thla was flatly denied
by Its ownors.
The ship moved from Tampieo to Cam-
peche, where British sgents located H
and reported that It bore a large quan
tity of rosin, for whioh thera was no
ostensible use in Mex.oo, although It ia
used largely for making shiapnal. They
also reported their suspicions that it
bore a large quantity of copper and
the British view was that ths ship was
waiting for an opportunity to slip out
with the cargo for earns port where it
would find its way to Great Bntatn's
Will Make Thoroagb. Inquiry.
Nothing further of its movements wss
reported It had been forcibly searched
reported until today when the American
oonsul reported It had been forcibly
searched In port by a party from the Brit
ish cruiser which had been lying outside.
What the searchers found the consul
did not report, but Inasmuch as he re
ported the crulsor still lying in wait It
waa supposed here they found something
which they believed would justify fur
ther action when the Zeelandla puts te
The forcible searching of an American
ship In a neutral port probably would
constitute one of the most serious issues
to arise between the United States and
Great Britain in the controversy now in
the channels of diplomacy over the Brit
ish navy's conduct toward American
ahipplnir. While awaiting- further details
here oliiclala were silent.. A thorough
Investigation will be made.
Owners Deny British Charges.
NEW YORK, Nov. .10. The steamer
Zeelandla, which is reported to have
been searched by a, boarding party from
a British cruiser at .Progreeo. Mex., Is
owned by the Flske Trading company of
New York. The owners said today they
had received no report from Captain
Devanchler for a week.
The manager of the Flske company
again denied that the Zeelandla had
taken on board several officers who es
caped from the Interned German auxil
iary cruiser Kron Prlnse Wllhelm at Nor
folk, Va., or that the vessel had been
fitted out for the use of Germans in pos-

The supreme court has reversed the
decision granting 12.999 damages to Mrs.
Robert J. Hawthorne for the death of
their 'son. Charles, who was killed by a
Wabash train near Strahan August IX
1911 This case was unique in that the
mother did the suing Instead of the

the feature on which the trial waa baaed.
The young man's body was found on the

Many epidemics of disease in cities are daily
being traced to the milk supply. Germs thrive in
milk. They thrive in milk that has been pasteur
ized as well as in unpasteurized milk.
Chicago Health, Bulletin No. 8 says that ten cases
of typhoid fever were traced to one milk-wagon driver
who stayed at work after he felt sick. This driver
wiped the top of each milk bottle with a piece of
cheesecloth and so spread the disease.
It's not enough to have milk start pure for your kitchen.
For you to be protected it must be pure when it reaches you.
Pasteurization of milk on the dairy farm is good so far
as it goes, but all dangers in milk are not overcome by
that process. There are still the exposures to contamina-'
tion in bottling, handling and delivering the milk.
Your surest protection from the dangers of impure
mux nes m
Cottacre Milk is Derfectlv sterilized, and delivered to
iu in perm-nroof nackaces. It isn't exDOsed from the time
t ia racked under the most sanitary conditions until you
open it in your own micncn.
And it is as good in every way and for every purpose
as bottle milk. It has more than twice the food value of
bottle milk. Cottage Milk is the richest milk from the
best dairying regions of the country, with nothing added
and with nothing taken out except water.
It is more economical, more convenient and more uni
form than raw milk, as well as more sanitary.
Cottage Milk solves every problem connected with
milk supply. Get some today and see how superior It ia.
