STILL BOMBARDING GORIZIA Italians Continue Throwing Sheila Into Austrian Town, Causing Heavy Damage. London, Nov. 27.—The situation in Serbia continues a most serious one. The invaders in the west daily are continuing their advance and pushing back the Serbs and Montenegrins. The entire plan of Kossovo now is in their hands, according to Vienna. In the south, where the situation is somewhat beclouded through lack of information, unofficial advices say the French have captured Brousnik, west of Krlvolak, from the Bulgarians, with whom they had been at grips for sev eral days. This same dispatch adds that large Serb forces are marching toward Prilep with the intention of protecting the railway line running south from that town to Monastir. On the Austro-Italian front Gorizia and the sorrounding territory still isi under the heavy bombardment of the Italian guns and sanguinary infantry attacks by the Italians have been made at several points. All of the latter, according to Vi enna, were repulsed. Vienna says that the damage done in the town of Gorizia, which is be ing systematically shot to pieces, amounts to $6,250,000. The British forces in Mesopotamia, which a few days ago were compelled fo retreat from the region of Bagdad because of lack of water, are now in possession of the entire battlefield, with the Turks in retreat, according to London. The Turks lost at least 1,300 men taken prisoners, while the British had 2,500 men wounded. The number of men killed on either side is not known.
