ANDERSON, S. C FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 23, 191S. NUMBER 166. RVSSIAI FIERCE ADVAN TEUTONS HAVE MADE NO SERIOUS BREACH IN LINES DEFENDING CITY j . . ??.^ . NO IMPORTANT G?iNSREPORTED It is Believed, However, Germans Are Awaiting Opportune Time to Advance. London, July 22.-Too Austro Germane continue to press tho rus sian forces dofcudlng Warsaw and while . they have made progress at some points they have made no ser ious breach in the well fortified lines defending the city. The Russians have drawn back to Bridgehead directly west of Warsaw uni into the fortress of Ivangorod further southeast on the Vistula. At these points they probably can of fer moro stubborn resistance. The two attacks being made from the north along the Narew river by Von lllindenberg and that which Von Mackensen is directing from the southeast, between the Vistula and TOug* rivers, apparently have been /held up, or Germans arc awaiting the opportune moment to move forward and catch the Russians armies if they evacuate Warsaw. . The Berlin offt cial statement does not record an ad vance fox .Mackensen, and although it stales tho Russian* havo ceased their counter attacks along Warsaw, it doesn't mention any success by Hmdenberg. Grand D?ke Nicholas, although' de livering stinging counter attacks'and inflicting heavy losses on the Anstro Germans, must consider thu safety of -his anny more than the possession of Warsaw. Near Bhavll, on the Dubissa river and on the Narlampol Kovno road the Germans claim successes, but noth ing ls said about tho fighting nearer Riga, for which another German army is beading. Argonne and Vosges still are scenes of fighting in the wost. Ac counts from opposing sides are con tradictory' as ever, but lt would ap pear that the French are the aggres sors in Vosges and' have made some progress, and that the Germans made a partially success offensive in Ar gonne. ?

London, July 22.-Desperate fight ing continuos between thc Teutonic ar mies pressing on toward Warsaw anr the Russian defenders. Tie issue is In tho balance. Vienna and Berlin claim new advances along the entire ' front. Petrograd, while not denying . Teutonic gain? in nome sections, as Berts lines aro being held, or else hurl ed buck at vital paints. South of Lublin, where a serious breach would mean the cutting of. the Lublin-Chelm. railroad line and a di vision of the Russian armies to the north end soutfi, Russian resistance seems the ?irongei. A Potrogrtid Internent claims the Teutons have tbeda<"heM there. Counter attachs have dWlv?n the' Germane back along . tho Hne:of tho river Narew, north of . Warsaw, the Russians assert. They also claim that their linea on the left hank of the V?stala, southeast of War saw, are holding. In thc Baltic.prov inces the advancing German outposts are barely 20 miles from Riga. Along the Austro-Italinn front Rome claims the gafin of part of the heights commanding Goriza and the Isonxo bridge (rom tho right hank of bhe ritler, ??ut the latest Vienna re port declares all attacks on Gorlzln bave been checked and that the height capturei by th?
