the Eastward?Battle Has Haired
London, Oc:. 19.?The attempted advance
of the German forces along the
coast of Belgium and Northern France
apparently with the aim of establishing
themselves in English channel
ports so they may menace England,
lias reached a critical point.

now reaches from Armentieres j
through Roulers to Xieuport, on t?lie
coast about half way befowen Os'tend
and Dunkirk. According to the French
official announcement today German
Iheavy artillery has bombarded the
front from Xieuport to Viadilo, which
is about ten miles from the coast.
The forces of the allies also have

sout&iward of Armentieres toward
Lille on a line running roughly to Arras.
The report tell of house to 'house
fighting in which the allies are ad(vancing.
The battOe has raged aro-uni
Arras without respite 'lor ten days,
and on the pan of t-e allied troops
"with a perseverance and a spirit
which never for a moment has been
Germans Are Brief.
The German official report covers
these operations more tersely. It says
the attacks west and northwest of
Lille have been repulsed with heavy
losses to the allies.
The situation is still much in tf'.:e
dark. English and (French papers
gather encouragement from reports
published from t'neir side. From the
German point of view it is possible the
Germans have improved their position,
and with the force that besieged Ant
werp and reinforceents 'from Ger- j
many are attempting along the ccast !
another sweeping increment.
In Plus field of action it appears in- j
evita-ble that there soon must be some
decisive results. The country's flatness
seems to have made it impossible for
the two armies to entrench and face
each other without important change
5n position for weeks, as they fcave
done across Northern France. ,
(The announcement that the Ger- '
mans have taken siege guns to the
neighborhood of Belfort may mean
they plan an attempted advance on
both ends of what has become virtually
a long fortified line.
German official reports say the exodus
from Ostend is being repeated in
the flight of inhabitants from Dunkirk
Confirmation of this assertion has
not been received here, but it is- wholly
possible the proximity of the Ger
mans lias created a panic at those
Great battles continue in the eastern '
theatre between.toe Russian and Austria-German
forces. Reports from both
sides are brief and contradictory.
Petrograd claims the Russians have
won partial success in severe fighting
. foe. ore Warsaw and Przemysl. Vienna
declares the Auatro-German armies
ha've made advances in both' regions
ana that the Russias casualties at
Przemysl numiber 40,000.
TLe Third Act.
The present advance of the Germans
along the Belgian and French coasts
is looked upon by military obesrvers
as the third act of the European war
in tO.e western theatre.
The first act was the German attempt
to sweep upon Paris with the
Capture of the French capital as the
climax of the advance.
The second act was tl.ie ariies' offensive,
assumed after Gen. Von Kluck
']-ad stretched his army on the German
west wing over a longer line of
communication than he could hold.
The allied army pressed the Germans
"hack, compelling t'.:e entire line to
recede to maintain an unbroken .ront
and a Dossible line of retreat.

When we came to Greenville, Tennessee,
we tad nothing to eat; so A1
and I went on another foraging expedition.
At a little cabin, after talking
a little, a man asked us in. We
asked him if he could let us have some
flour. He said he could, if we would
not tell where we got it. We promised,
and got out our hag. He gave us
20 pounds. All the money we had was
an old biW, out of date; but 'iie took
mv twenty aoiiirs, ana, m aauiuou
to the flour, gave us five pounds of
the sweetest mea>i I ever ate. After
leaving that place we came to another
house. I told A1 we might get
the folks there to bake us a pone of
brea-d. We went up to tie door, and!
the ladiy kindly consented to faelp us
out. Soon she had. bread ready, out
of our flour, and meat out o'f our meat.

and revolvers. Tto-ey lay several
; weeks behind tihe army, taking no'

disheartened because oft he easy man- !

Damage Not So Great.
| As the correspondent drc^e through
miles o:' the streets cf A::t*.v'er;; .' :
city seemed to have suffered less than
had been believed. Indications of
daage wrought by tJie uernian snens
were observed in all quarters, but the
destruction usually was confined to
j individual houses at widely scattered
| i.U German headquarters it was said
this fact was due to the definite plan
of the Germans to convince Antwerp
with a minimum of damage that further
resistance was useless. The
heavy 12 and 16-inch guns, it was
stated, were not used against the city
proper, but shells from tbe smaller
1 mortars were dropped sysxemancauy
throughout the place.
i How accurately the public buildings
were avoided seems to be proved by a
shell hole in the pavement at the side
entrance to the city hal1. and in the
destruction of a house across the
street from that building. The churdh
of our lady, the pridie oi" Antwerp, has
a 'hole eight or ten feet in diameter in
one transept window, and in an adjoining
wall 30 feet aibove the floor.
Otherwise this edifice was not damaged.
I Effect of Big Gnns.
i Thp pffpo-r nf thp hii?r 2:11ns on Ant
werp's outer .oriifications was more
S'triai-g than at Liege. Two armored
turrets at Fort de Wavre, St. Cat'nenine,
were put out of action with a
single shot, their steel beds being
broken in two and the heaivy masses
of metal o.urled five or six yards away.
In another fort the concrete embankment
was pierced like an egg shell
(and the steel turret uprooted.
! German staff officers say r^at wnen
the River Xethe was crossed the Belgian
defence virtually.collapsed. 'When
they pushed in through their girdle o.1
inner posts and past'the undefended
city wall they found that the retiring
garrison had 'blown up tfte bridge
across the River Scheldt and also had
interpos'ed a belt of flame against the
inv.iders by firing the oil tanks and
covering the surface of the river witi"J
Antwerp's populate has fled and the
streets are deserted. Many of the
houses which were demolished by the
eGrman shell fire are still smoking
: Scenes o. devastation are to be wit|
nes-sed in the warehouse district along
jttie river bank. In addition to wrecked
buildings piles of packing cases lie
broken open and their contents strewn
| about the streets. Millions of dollars-'
i worth of merchandise has been ruined
j in this district.
