russians from tho north is para'lelcd
by tito advance of tho Teutonic allies

Warsaw. The -wisdom of abandoning
Warsaw and thus strengthening the'
Russian line, dally -becomes a more
definite, subject .of speculation
among the allies.
A Russian retirement from tho
capital before it ls completely in
