Roumania is expected tofol low a campaign marked out by Allied experts but whether they will proceed against the Bulga rians or tustrians is not known. The fact that Roumania de 1 dared war on Austria the same day that Italy declared war on Germany shows that a premed itated plan of the Allies was| followed. Germany has declar ed war on Roumania in retalia lion. Athens despatches show that Greece is stiired by Bulgarian occupation of Greek tcrntory and tlie population is demand ing the support of the Entente. There is little known of the battles on the Macedonian front though the Bulgarians claim gains and that they are pushing into Albania. Bad weather hinders opera tions on the Sonmie front. The Germans attacked again at Verdun and assaulted the French at Fltury. Berlin states that lighting is already taking place between Roumanian and Teutonic troops on the Transyl vania frontier.

Censor's Museum
Ingenious Contraband Devices
Disguised Rubber
LONDON lins many interest-
ing museums, but it is
doubtful if llif must interesting
of tin-in is open to tlie public, la
the neighbourhood of the Law
Courts there is hcollection that
h.is been gathered together
since the beginning of the war.
When first shown into the
rooms tli.it contain it you would
doubles! think that you were
looking over a stock of samples
culled from the bags of a nuin
ber of commercial travellers
who dealt in everything from
cheap jewelry to bacon.
This is the museum of the
Censor, and all the exhibits re-
present attempts that have been
made to frustrate the watchful
ness of the British Navy. Some-
where across the sea in a neu
tral country there has grown up
an industry that is essentially
the product of this war. With
great pains and ingenuity the
men who do these things seek to
m ike things seem what they are
not. That is their one object in
life. They reduced the thing to
a fine art, so that now tiiey can
make a pound of lard appear
like a copy of tilt Springfield
Republican or a packet of pure
rubber look like a bundle of
narcissus bulbs.
There is out specimen that
has not even been disguised. It
is a parcel of I 51!i. of bacon
T/Trt't is not very unusual, but
this bacon is not asother bacon
1that is evident. The man who
\vas sending this to Germain
thought so much of his gift thai
he s<-nt it letter-post and pasted
stamps on it to the value of 15s.,
n. for every lb. of bacon in the
package. Somewhere in Ger
many there is a family still
waiting in very much the same
way that mother I lubbard sdog
had to wait. All these innocent
bundles of newspapers are not
what they seem. The neatly-
rolled ends are but cleverly
made plugs of paper and wood.
Pull one of these plugs out and
you will find a long sausage
shaped bag ofcalicocontaining
anything from sliced ham to
Para rubber, from rice to to
bacco.
Hidden Rubber.
In many cases the stamps on
these packets by far exceed the
value of the stuffs inside. That
is, they exceed their value as
we regard them. The meie fact
that the postage is paid points
undoubtedly to the fact that in
Germany and Austria they are
looked upon in a different light.
Many of these parcels have dup
licate covers. They are address
ed to someone in a neutral
country, whose business it is to
pull off one cover and re post
them to the German or Austrian
address revealed below. Think'
ing that letters were fairly safe,
these same enterprising people
overseas evolved a scheme for
sending in each letter a sheet of
pure rubber. Doubtless if these
had arrived in either of the en
emy countries they would have
been sent to a central depot, and
ultimately would have emerged
as rubber tires or some other
commodity which the Germans
lack.
In one corner of the museum
there is a collection of quite an-
I other kind. It is not without its
I artistic merit, but the exhibits
aiesuch that they leave the av
erage Englishman, seeing red
and itching to get his hands on
the man who was responsible
for them. These are the medals
struck to commemotate Ger
man victories on the sea and
land and in the land of fancy
as well. The Lusitania medal
is here, in all its horrible crudity
On one side is the representation
in high relief of a ship sinking.
I The vessel is supposed to be the
I Lusitania, but it is some new
I ship, the product of a fertile
'German brain, for it bristles
I with guns, and looks more like
a battle cruiser than a passeng
er liner. There are words en
graved telling of the glorious
achievement of the man who
sent those hundreds to their
travel heneath the sea. There
is also the date of the great vie
tory. Other medals there are.
One is to commemorate the
victory of the battle cruiser
squadrons in their attacks on
the Hartlepools and Lowestoft.
It must be a queer mind that con
ceives the idea of perpetuating
in bonze the massacre of a few
helpless men, women, and child
ren.
Iron Crosses.
There are two iron crosses.
They are the original article
and were being sent from Ger
many to child of the Father
land forcibly exiled in a coun
try oversea through the in son
siderateness of the British Fleet.
The consigner was the maker
of the crosses, the head of the
fiim that supplies them to the
German Government, and in a
covering letter he naively sug
gests that if the- recipients can
not wear the decorations in the
country they are living in with
OUt raising doubt as to how
they won them in this war they
aro to say that they were given
them in the war of 1870! So
much for the Emperor's highest
military decoration for valour.
Boots are apparently needed
in Germany, for there are num
erotlS parcels that have been
intercepted containing footwear
of all sorts. In several cases the
kind giver has wrapped the
boots carefully in a piece of
best sole leather, so that the
value of the gift is greatly en
hanced. Indeed the same thing
that is noticed in the case of
the bacon obtains here, for the
postage is letter postage and
abnormally high for the goods
sent.
All these things, neatly laid
lout and ticketed are merely
samples of large contraband
cargoes that have found their
way into the wrong hands. They
are not confiscated, but will
some day get to their proper
destinations, only at present the
British Government hflS"intern-
ed" them. Needless to say, there
are some parcels that will not
be quite themselves after fTie
war. A pound of lard wrapped
in newspapers is not guaranteed
to keep its first freshness for
very long, and the bacon and
meat will perhaps be Assets
when peace comes again to F u-
ropt. The other goods, however,
are merely detained and some
day the rubber will all go to
make tires, the medals will be
hung on stalwart German chests,
the boots will tread the pave-
ments of the Unter den Linden,
and the rice and oatmeal will
be taken out of their clever
hiding places to assunge the
hunger of little Hans and Fritz
and Gretclitn.

Tie- lull on the Eastern front
continues but the renewed
offensive by the Grand Duke

I. ghting in tin- region of Lake

Tui lw and Russian military
critic-, predict the resumption
of the (ii i d Duke's advance

Tic usual period of com

Entente Allies.
Berlin:Roumania declared
war on Austria yesterday.
London: -There is no indica
tion as to the immediate effect
Ion military operations in the
Balkans by the entry of Rouma
nia into the war.
Roumania is expected tofol
' low a campaign marked out by
Allied experts but whether they
will proceed against the Bulga
rians or tustrians is not known.
The fact that Roumania de
1 dared war on Austria the same
day that Italy declared war on
Germany shows that a premed
itated plan of the Allies was|
followed. Germany has declar
ed war on Roumania in retalia
lion.
Athens despatches show that
Greece is stiired by Bulgarian
occupation of Greek tcrntory
and tlie population is demand
ing the support of the Entente.

tions on the Sonmie front. The
Germans attacked again at
Verdun and assaulted the
French at Fltury.

is already taking place be-
tween Roumanian and Teu-
tonic troops on the Transyl
vania frontier. The statement
also says that the British and
French made repeated at
tacks on tin; Somme but that
all were repulsed. T be Rus
sian attacks on the Volhynia
front weie repulsed. The Bui
garians are still advancing
to the Macedonian front.
