Paris, Sept. 11 4:40p. m.
The French military authorities
who heretoforthave confined the
information made public ooucern
mg the military operations East
of Paris to laconic statements
very general in character, today
gave a lengthy dfsoription of the
meet important battle since the
begining of hostilities.
Evidently the left wing of the
Allied armies facing the north
east has borne the brant of the
preliminary engagements in which
the British took such a prominent
part so well that they are the
object of highest compliments on
the part of French military men.
The combat aosordiug to official
announcement, seems to be de
veloped into an abandonment of
at least the advance positions
held by the Germans wh?, it is
announced, are retiring along a
a greater part of the line. This
retirement is said to have been
for 46 miles at some points.
Furious onslaughts, somtim?s
by the French and again by the
German, occurred about the cen
ter of an extensive line in the
Tioinity of Virty-Le-Francois.

Paris, Sept 12 11:34 p. m.
The following cffisial ommunica
tion was issued tonight by the
French war effice:
4 N .twhhstrudiug the fatigue
occasioned by five days of inces
sant fighting, our troops are vig
orously pursuing the enemy,
which is in general retreat.
"This retreat appears to have
been mere rapid than the advance.
This has been bo precipitate at
certain prints that our troops
hav gathered up at the general
quarters, notably Montmirail
charts, documents, ai d persona
papers abnadoned by trie enemy,
and also packages or letters
whioh had beeu 'received or were

"In the district of Fromnteres

teries of mortars and a number of
caissons of ammunition."

today commenced a series of vio
lent attempts .to break through
the French center have found
their efforts futile, and, ev&cuat
mg Virty-Le- Francois, the pivot
ol their offensive and where they
had fortified already strong natur
al positions, they have retired
This retirement was made im
perative by the continued retreat
of the German right wing, which
is somewhere northwest of Rheims,
and the defeat of an army corps,
which was operating just east of
Virty Le Francois, around Revig
ny and Sermaiz v and which, in
its buiry to join the retirement,
left a quantity of war material
behind for the French to pick up.
The Germans in the Aronue
district likewise have began to
fail hack, so that the pressure on
the forts acuthwest of Verdun,
which a Berlin, report said the
Germans had commenoed to bom
bard, should be relieved.
French Win in Ltrraine.
In Lorraine, too, the French
claim to have won farther sue
cessses to have been enabled to
straighten out their line along
that frontier. They have occupi
ed territory east of the forest of
4Cbampenonr, Gerbeviller, Resain-
viiler, and Saint Die, thus getting
in ckser touch with their tro.jps,
which, since the early days of the
war. have held a bit cf German
territory in froct of Colmar.
Apparently the Germans, who
i(-ut, the btsfc of their army farth
er west to take in the advance on
Pans, have found the mountains
of McBeile and Vosges, where the
French were in strong possessions,
too hard a nlit to crack.
Belgians Rettke Town.
The Belgian army has become
ac.ive again, and according to cf
filial reports tonight, is advanc
ing, from the forts around Ant
w rp. It apparently has divided
into sections and has reoccupied
both Aerschot and Malines, where
there have been so many' engage
ments the past few weeks, and hc
-ven got so far southeast as the
battlefields of August and coming
down on both sides of what re
mains of Loavain, has cut com
ma icationi between that town
and Brussels ou the west, and be
tween Louvain and Tirlemont on
the southeast. Another army is
harra9sing German forces advanc
?r.g southward to France.
While the Belgians have only
about 80,000 troops it is a mobile
fcrce and can cause trouble to the
wegkeued German army of occu
pation in Belgium.
Russians Battle Fiercely.
The Russians continue to strike
at the Austrian left in Gahoia.
and, according to Petrograd re
ports, they have sucoeded in
smashing it. The object iu con
centrating the attack on this wing
of the Austrian army is obvious,
for the Russians have desired
more than anything else at the
present time to pat the Austrian
navy entirely out of the fight be
fore more German reinforcements
cjuld come to its aid.
Actiiity in Southern Seas.
Australian and New Zeland
seemingly have designs on all Ger
man Islands in the South Pacific
After the occupation of Gtrman
Samoa by a New Z)land force, the
Australian navy occupied Her
bertshoebe, German headquarters
in New Britain.
Tha Australians have a useful
squadron headed by the dread-
naught Australia, and probably
will be heard more in the Pacific.
The Archipelago they now occupy
.has a population of 200,000 and
was asigued to the German sphere
of influence by an agreement with
Great Britain in 1885.

What's more, they are doing that
during hot weather.
Consumption is a waiting dis
ease. As long as the disease is
progressing, the victim loses flesh.
When the patient begins to im
prove, one of the first symptoms
is a gain in weight. A gam in
weight means that not only is the
course of the disease cheoked and
this wasting away or "oonsamp

the battle is completely reversed,
that tubercle . bacilli are on the
ran and that the physioal condi
tion of the body is being rapidly
Every Saturday morning each
patient at the Sanatorium is
weighed. They scon learn the
meaning of a gain in weight, and
a gain of a pound or two over the
previous week is musio in the pa
tient's ears. Some of the patients
at the sanatorium, . of oonrse,
gain faster thaa others. Some
gain as much as four or five
pounds a week. Others barely
hold their own, and a few in the
last stages may gain a little ope
week and lose a little next week,
and so. it goes . The total gain of
all the patients amounts to from
100 to 120 pounds a week, or about
three tons a year.
The great surprise to many peo
ple who visit the Sanatorium for
the first time is the general heal

To the credit of the state high
school board of Minnesota, be it
noted that they have refused to
violate the constitution of that
state at the behest of Archbishop
Ireland. When his nibs insisted
upon their violating the state
constitution by allowing the so
callsd sisters to wear their papal
uniforms while teaohing in the
schools, the board stood by the
state Jaw and adopted a rale more
explicit than ever . Now, if they
will discharge every enemy of
publio eduoation from service in
the publio schools of Minnesota,
their good work will be complete.
If the paptists are given a share
of the school fund, as they de
mand, the Jews, Infidels, Ration
alists, Buddhists, Mormons and
every sect conceivable can con
sistently demand the same thing.
The result would be such a .divi
sion of school funds as to destroy
the publio school; and that is
what the papes are working for.

Paris, Sept. 11. 4:80 p. m.
An idea of how the Germans were
harrasied by artillery fire during
their retreat was obtained on a
visit to the fields near Meaux, the
scene of a severe fight yesterday.
The German infantry had taken
a position in a sunken road on
either side of whioh were stretch
ed, in extended lines, hummocks,
some oi tneni natural and some
the work of German soldiers.
Besides many bodies were 40
or 50 empty cartridge shells while
fragments of clothing, caps and
knapsacks were "scattered, about.
This destruction was wrought by
batteries three miles distant.
Straggling dumps of wood inter
vened between the range had been
determined by an officer on an
elevation a mile from the gunners
He telepnohed directions for the
firing and through glasses watched
