London. Jul;.' 1?0. - Tho Auslro-Ger mnns continuo pounding tho Russian front and niilitai-y orillos say nothing but a miracle can save Warsaw. Thq German oflieial statement, beginning its recital at the northern tip of tho battle line, records progress of tho Germans to within about fifty miles of Riga, then following the great battle arc- southward, chronicles further successes northeast of Warsaw, cul minating In the capture of Ostrolcnka, ono of the fortresses designed to shield Warsaw.
