WRECKAGE IN PARIS CAUSED BY BOMBS DROPPED BY GERMAN AVIATORS FROM AEROPLANES
In the main the effect of aerial bombardments has been far less than was expected. Damage in Paris has been trifling and there has
been complete absence of panic among the people. As a scout, the aeroplane seems to render its most effective service.
ANTWERP HAS MANY SCARS AS THE RESULT OF GERMAN BOMBARDMENT FROM THE AIR
Here a more determined assault has been made by the Germans from the air than at Paris. Nevertheless, reports agree that
aerial assaults fail to inflict damage enough to be a factor in war. This form of attack amounts, usually, to murder

PRINCE OF WALES TO JOIN

Will Be Attached to Staff of General
LONDON, Sept. 14.
The Prince of Wales will leave In a few
day for the allies' front in France. lie
will be attached to tho staff of Field
Marshal Sir John French. The Princo Is
an offloer in the Grenadier Guards.
The German retreat In France has be
come virtually a general 'rout, the
rally of their armies in the region
of the Argonno being again repelled.
Tho German Crown Prince is still
stubornly resisting the allies. Tho
armies of Generals von Kluk nnd von
Buelow- aro retiring from the terri
tory where the fiercest fighting of
the war took place, abandoning tho
strategic positions gained through
great Iqss of life. Tho allies ,are, ian
tho offensive alori2the"cnllre line.
Pnrls and London, longln gloom over
tho successes of the Germans, today
rejoice. In victory. "Unparalleled In
extent and Intensity," wires Joftre,
commander of tho allies, to tho poo
plo of France In describing the Ger
man defeat. City after city which

they fell before the invaders have
Valenciennes, Amiens, LIHe, Lunev.llj,
Rheims, St. Die, Raon and a score of
cities, where thousands of Germans
laid down their lives that tho flag
might wave over the Hotel do Villes,
have again been taken by the French.
To the region of tho Argonne the rem
nants of tho six German armle-s are
moving with all the speed possible to
the fatigued soldiers. At this point
alone rests the salvation of German
arms in France. The allies are con
fident of victory. The flight con
tinues. Tho British and French have crossed
the Aisno, tho allies' centra la north
of tho Morne, while in tho east St.
Die has fallen. Toward the Valloy of
the Meuse, the last outlet Into Ger
many, tho allies are pressing the Ger
mans. In Belgium the Invaders have been
more successful today, pushing back
tho Antwerp army to the city fortifi
cations. Other reports, however,
state thnt Brussels will be retaken by
the army of King Albert and that the
country will be freed from the enemy
within a few days. Meanwhile, Itus
slan reinforcements for the allies are
landing at Ostend.
In Austria the Russians are moving
toward Vienna. Panic relens in the
capital. The doom of the dual mon
archy seems Inevitable, as tho whole
army of the north has been crushed.
Two hundred thousand prisoners have
been taken, the Carpathians crossed
and all roads cleared to the Invaders
Servla on the south Is moving toward
Budapest. A hrldgo has been erected
across the Save.

at tho southern end of th region of

the last to give way before the tre.
