Attack on Czar's Base in
Galicia in Move to Break
Down Cracow Advance.
VIENNA, Jan. 25.
Austrian iujauUs have driven the Uua-
slang from their trenched eouth of Tar
now, nnd a fierce battle Is raging for
pon---lon of the Gallolan city.
lUistlan forces hold Tarnow, doiplto fu
rious attacks, according to an official
statement Untied here today announcing
the capture of the trenches.
The Auttrlan army of defense In mld
Oallcla has adopted offensive tactics at
several points, the most important of
which is Tarnow, on account of the
strong intrenchtnenbi of the Russians
there and the city's value as a railway
Tarnow Is ohout 10 miles due west of
Cracow, and marks the Czar's advanced
position In the campaign against Cracow,
It has boen used ns a Itusslan base of
supplies and transportation both In the
t-ra-cow nnd Hungarian opcrntlons.
Itesumptlon of furious aggression on
the part of Austria in this region Indi
cates a determined endeavor to frustrate
further advance on Cracow by beating
back the Ru-nlan forces at a time when
the General Staff haa Its hands full with
the drlvo against Thorn, In North Po
land, and the attempted Invasion of Tran
flVfanln. "Artillery battles and skirmishes continue
at points on both the Qnllclan and Polish
fronts, the official statement adds, and
in the Carpathians the Russians have lost
several trenches south of the passes.
Official statement also Is made that the
Russians aro working with a big force
on their third lino of defenses, eastward
of Gorllce (In Qallcla, midway between
Cracow and Przemysl) and are surround
ing It with wire entanglements.
Their first line Is weakly manned and
gives the Impression that the Russians

front nro thinking only of acting on the
Some kilometres in front of the Aus
trian artillery line well-built Infantry
positions extend to the palace grounds
Strategists here consider that the ter
mination of the campaign Is In sight, and
also forecast the abandonment of the
Frzemysl siege In view of developments
both In northern nnd southern Poland,
which, from now on. It Is thought, will
monopolize Ruwlan attention.

personal message of congratulation on the
victory won by his fleet yesterday over a
Oerman squadron. Tho entire English

over Norfolk. The statement Issued In
Berlin today, saying that a British
cruiser was reported to have been sunk
In the battle, was declared by English
naval officials to be an attempt to mini

Its declaration that the English casualties
had been few.

developed instrument of its type
When self-playing pianos first became a
probability, the sole ambition of inventors was
to procure an instrument to render auto
matically every power of human fingers and
every interpretation of master musicians.
The Pianola became the first successful
player to accomplish these ideals. Patent after
patent was procured by the Aeolian Co. To
day 312 patents protect the Pianola.
On the Pianola you can- render in the
most amazingly simple fashion exact repro
ductions of the best human playing. Through
the Metrostyle and Themodist you can simply
produce every accent, every shading and
every bit of melody.
More amazing still you can purchase a
genuine Pianola at prices much less than is
asked for "imitations."
