This is the first specific announce?
ment of the abandonment by Russia of;
her sphere of influence in Persia and
of her decisirn not to Interiora further
with the internal administration of
Persia. Russia'? sphere wag in the
north of the country, England's in the
south, and before the overthrow of
the Romanoff dynasty Russia practi-,
cally controlled tho internal affairs
of the nation.
Russia's action removes an obstacle
to the negotiation by Persia of ar-!
rangements for the supervision of her
financial affairs by a foreign adviser.
It is understood that both the Britiih
and Russian governments have been
sounded on this point by the Teheran
government, but no response from
either tho London or the Petrograd
Foreign Office has been received.
The dispatch from Teheran also
atated that Grand Duke Dimitrleff
Pavlovitch, who was refuted to have
been connected with the removal of
the monk. Rasputin from Russian af?
fairs, is a rlaitel there, and had been,
graciouEly entertained.
500 Big English Ships
Sunk in Last 6 Months
BirminghaVi, England, July 18. Mr.
Kellaway, Parliamentary Secretary of ?
the Minister of Munitions, after ex
plaining the imperative need of labor
dilution, told a gathering of munition
workers that this country had lost over
60??. ships, most of them of heavy ton?
nage, in six months.
He said that unless a good part of
that loss was made good by increasing
the output of new ships the country
must inevitably be starved into a shame?
ful peace.

Battle Front
London, July 30. -The Russians arc
finally attempting to make a stand on
their own soil. Though the Germans
have crossed the Zbrocz River, which
forms the border between Eastern Ga?
licia and Russia, at patatal points and
in considerable bodies, Berlin reports I
that the Russians are holding the ;
heights east of the stream and offering i
fierce resistance. The night bulletin '
indicates that at this point the Teu?
tonic advance has been halted, at least
for the time being.
Between this battlefield and the
Dniester River the -Russian front Is ?
still being withdrawn, probably to the
frontier, and the Austro-Germans hart
passed beyond Korolowka, which is lit?
tle more than ten miles from the bor?
der. South of the Dniester, however,
Korniloff's Seventh Army Is showing
more fight, and it appears to be the
intention of the Russian commander to
hold, if possible, Czernowitz, and a
broad strip of Bukowina as a defensive
belt before Besssrabia, one of the
chief Slavic granaries.
Below Zaleeszezyky, on the Dniester,
near its confluence with the upper
Sereth, the Germans admit they en?
countered a "bitter" defence which,
however, did not save the Russians
from being pressed back. Southwest
w*ard the Teutons are making progress
along the Cheremosh River, and over
the Bukowina border are moving up the
Sushawa and Moldova vallevs, but more
slowly and with greater difficulty.
Battle Line Resemble? "8"
Over the great stretch of territory I
from north of Tsrnopol to the Ru- !
manian border the ba'.tle line now lies
in the shape of a huge reversed "S." I
The northern and eastward swell of the
line crosses the Russian frontier for'
about twenty miles and the reverse
swell on the south swings around and
bulges out westward beyond Czer?
nowitz and then down into the Car?
The German advance in the north,
where the eleventh Russian army was
disastrously broken, has been much
swifter than south of the Dniester,
where the seventh army, the best ?if
the Russian fighting forces, conducted '?
a more orderly retreat. Therefore, the
German troops across the Russian ,
frontier stand at the point of a huge
salient, which there may be danger in ,
extending. So the comparative slow
I ing down of the Teuton advance, which
i is noted in to-day's bulletins, may be ?
I due quite as much to German caution
' at to Rust?an recovery.
There is also a political aspect to th?
! situation. An invasion - * White Rus
i tia at this time might be an embarass

ficial peace overtures which the Im?
perial German Chancellor is aiming at

Rumanians Driving Ahead
It is not likely that the Teutonic for?
ward movement in Galicia has been
much hampered by the Russo-Kumanian
offensive into Transylvania, though at
the last reports this ?**as continuing
upon a normal course. A bulletin from
the Rumanian General Staff at Jatsy
deelarei that on Friday General Av
erescu had pushed kil aiffhtta**rMlla
front several miles ahead between the
t'as.n and PuT.u valleys, storming six ;
villages and capturing many prisoners
and a number of motor batteries. Dis?
patches from Petrograd say the Russo-|
Rumanians are proceeding circumspect
j ly i-o as not to expose themselvct to a
! counter blow.

On the Rumanian front, the embassy

alao against any possible miscarriage
of their own plans, so as not to com?

the Russians have been uniformly suc
eessful ?ver since their drive began,
without a single reverse.
The tear?-i?_:n Office informed tho em?

has left Petrograd for the front to

Death by Gas ?Bombs,
Saved by Red Cross
Removed From Frontier Town
Bombarded by German
Paris, July .10.?Four hundred ?mall
children, threatened with death by
asphyxiating gas bombs dropped by
enemy aviators, were successfully re?
moved to-day from a small French town
near the firm?; line to a place of safety
by the American Red Cr?s? in response
to the first emergency call received at
the Parisian headquarters.
The first word of the children's con?
dition reached headquarters late Thurs
riff" afternoon, and the nex' day the
Red Cross sent doctors and nurse? and
a truckload of condensad milk, cloth
lug and dnifca for their relief. Tha
children were bathed, fed and provldei
with clean clothing. They were giver
medical attention and finally tram
ferred to a ?afer locality.
A? the German aviators are usin?.
gas bomb? and because it I? impos?
sible to equip children properly with
gas masks, It. has been considered
necessary to take them out of the dan?
ger zone. Many mothers who are busy
harvesting crop? have been unable to
give adequate care to their children,
and the Red Cross has now taken them
under it? control temporarily.

Monroe Clothes
for LESS
Right now, when the papers are full of "Reduc
tion Sale3," is a splendid time to make comparison*-)
between Monroe Clothes at $15 and others at any?
where near the price.
Compare, for instance, the Shantung silk suit^
that you'll find on sale elsewhere at the "reduced"
price of $20 with Monroe Shantung silk suits selling
regularly at $15. Only those near-sighted persons
with an utter lack of value appreciation will hesitate
to choose the Monroe suit as tho best buy. Put any
Monroe suit to this test?you'll find it an experi?

Low upstairs rent, no middleman's profit, a
one-price policy the year 'round, no "special salea"
?these are the three big reasons why Monroe cus?
tomers are satisfied customers, why there are over
100,000 wearers of Monroe Clothes in New York
City to-day who won't switch.
Come up to-day and make us prove our claim.
