methodic progress of the Allies toward
Constantinople continues unabated In
Italy and nlso In Rumania.
From tho latter country comes tele
graphic Information denoting the eager
concern with which further undefined and
disconcerting surprises on tho part of

hended In Bucharest.
Tho Independent Itnllnn press and the

holding that tho motives which hereto
fore havo hindered Italy from overstep
ping tho limits of her neutrality havo
been profoundly modified by tho Anglo
French expedition against Turkey and
by tho outspoken corollaries which will
necessarily flow from that source.
They express confldcnco that the Cab
inet will so regulate Its attitude as to
bring It into harmony with this new
factor nnd see that Italy loses nothing
by the change In tho situation.

Dr. George H. Toop Preaches Lenten
Sermon on Faith.
The Hev. Dr, George Herbert Toop,

Apostles, made a plea for a rigid self
examination on the part of Christians
today, at the noonday Lenton services In

Doctor Toop drew a comparison between
the loss of faith followed by the loss of
his strength by Samson and Christians
losing their faith. He said that Samson
did not know tjiat when ho had cast God
out of his mind hla strength was gone.
In tho same manner, he said, many
Christians lose faith and. In forgetting
the fundamentals of religion, forget that
all things come from God.
