. Two armies In Southern Polnnd are
dealing heavy blows to tho Austro-Qer-man
troops In tho government of Ktelce.
The city of Ktelce has been recaptured by
the forces of General Ruzsky.
Taken by tho Germans when their heavy

KIclco as far as Lopuszno, while another
advanced over tho Lysa Oora Heights to
strengthen the forces oppoalnguh") Aus

Tho rapid advance of thesa two armies
rendered tho Germans' position In and
about Klelce untenable? and they have
fallen back from this former bnse to a
front running through Oleszno, Kurzetow
and Sccemln. Tho projected Ivangorod

PARIS, Jan. 23.
Tho fighting In 'tho new battle of
Flanders has become so fierce that a
gain of even a few yards by the allied
forces Is regarded as Important. An
ofllclal communique Issued by tho French
War Oftlce this afternoon emphasizes the
fact that a gain of 100 yards has been
mado In the region of Lombaertzyde.
In an attempt to establish their posi

the town of Berry-au-Bac.
A. German attack to tho northeast of

RUSSIANS PRESS ADVANCE
AGAINST EAST PRUSSIA
Cossack Outposts, However, Are
Halted Near Klkol.
PETROGRAD, Jan. 13.
Sanguinary encounters between the Cos
sack advance ot the great Russian army
now menacing the German fortress of
Thorn and Oerman forces southeast of
Klkol were reported In dispatches from
the front today.
Under a murderous Are from a German
Infantry regiment, the cavalry was forced
to retire, it Is admitted here. The Ger
mans wheeled light artillery Into position
to support -tffe riflemen. The Cossacks
were permitted to advance to within a
short distance from the German Intrenrh

was poured Into their ranks.
The outposts having clashed, retrograd
confidently awaits news of the beginning
of one of the greatest battles fought In
Northern Poland since the beginning
of tho war. Earlier in the week the
Russians were sweeping toward the Prus
slan frontier without meeting any serious
resistance. The Germans will make a
stand near Klkol, about 23 miles south
east of Thorn, it is now believed, ind a
general engagement all along the tf-mlle
battle line will begin there.
Russian scputs today reported that the
army of General Francois, moving from
the Mlawa region to attack the rear of
the Russian army moving on Thorn, is
making slow progress. Heavy reinforce

aid, and It Is thought possible In Is await
