The new line o( battle now being formed in France runs along the Valley of the Aisnc, where General Von Kluk's forces arc defending themselves
acainst the English on his extreme right, and the various French armiesin the centre and on his left. The second, third and fourth German armies are falling
back on the Aisne from Chalons and Rheims, while further east the fifth German army, under the Crown Prince, has been compelled to move northward
and eastward from the Argonne district outside of the range of the Verdun forts. The sixth German army, operating on the Lorraine frontier, is moving
back to its base at Metz. South of Verdun the French have relieved Troyon, attacked by the Germans, and are forcing the Crown Prince's rear guards to the
north, threatening the German centre with an enveloping movement.

Communications With; Germany Hin
dered When Wireless Machinery Fails
Communications between this country
and Germany received a serious setback
today when the wireless plant at Tucker-
ton, N. J., was forced to shut down owing
to an accident to tho machinery.
While the naval officers in charge of
tho station would not divulge exactly
what tho nature of the breakdown was,
It Is understood that tho soncrators had
burned out because of the high pressure
at which tho plant has been forced to run
night and day. In an endeavor to dispatch
all the messages accoptcd for transmis
sion. As tho Tuckerton station Is ono of
two in the United States furnishing direct
communication with Germany, it has been
practically swamped with work since the
cables ceased operation.
The generators affected by the breslc
down are the most vital part of tho send
ing machinery. As all the machinery In
use at Tuckerton Is of Gorman manu
facture. there may be much difficulty In
replacing tho destroyed parts so that the
plant may be kept out of commission for
some time.

MOSCOW, Sept. 16,-Tliore Is ,lu j,.
presslon of tho national spirit in Russia
There nre no striken, ,10 rotS( no revohi;
tionary propaganda or pessimism, hut
Instead an all-pervadlnR cheerfulness ami
natural unanimity, which even tho most
optlmlstlo could not have foreseen.
Tho peasants go to the front with great
enthusiasm, nnd radical nnd conservative
alike chocr them on. Newspapers of
all parties are one, and Liberal organs
aro as loyal as those of Kxtrome Right,
There Is tho same unanimity among Pole,'
and Jows, and oven Jewish volunteer
regiments have been formed.
The only sympathy with Germany n.
In Uie breasts of iho Finns. The only
Instinct to fall Into brlgandago and re
bellion Is among the Mohammedan tubes
men of Caucasus. All Is well, nnd if
success crowns the Russian arms, tht
empire will become bound In a happy
allegiance, to the Czar as never before.
On the other hand, if the Germans gain
tho upper hand, and Inflict vaBt slaughter,
the presence of millions of armed liui.
slans In western Russia U prcgnnnt with
danger for all who havo property and
culture and position there, This war Ii.
a matter of llfo nnd death for Russlnn
civilization, as It 13 for all tho other
States onsagod.
Tho air Is full of hope. All vodka shops
havo been cloned for a month, nnd Russia
has taken on tho nppenrance of sobriety.
It has been Impossible to obtain alcoholic
liquors of any kind, and ns a consequence
drunlcennoafl has disappeared from tlia
streets, nnd with It tho great army of
beggars, who only be that they may
gather a few kopeks for a bottle.
The absence of vodka has made a great
blank In tho peasants' lives, but that
blank has been filled up by war nnd (lit
Intorest of war. Ordinarily the peasants
feel they have nothing to do but drink,
but now It Is otherwise. It is aa If In
war they found a real reason for exist
once as If In death they found the ob
ject of living.
My ears ache with tho sound of wom
en's sobs. All the way from the peacotul
und happy villages of tho Altai the
sounds of wailing and crying broko upon
my ears. Here, however, In Moscow It
Is different; some ono has wiped away
their tears, and the women, with sun
shiny, If tear-stained, faces, aro fever
ishly working- for the thousands ot
wounded who havo come back for their
Already there aro MOO wounded In
Moscow, and they increase ut the rate
of five tratuloads dally. The streets are
thronged with Red Cross nurses. In
every house women are thinking of what
they can do personally for tho wounded;
how many they can take to nurse.
Alas! Wo nro only at the beginning
of sorrow, and for tho thousands of
wounded today there will be tens of
thousands and hundreds of thousands a
week or a month hence. Kvcn all the
care and thought of thoso at home will
bo too little to meet the suffering, nnd
many poor soldiers will die without the
touch of ono skilled or riontlo hand.
Xiuve for tho soldlcis In hysterical. At
tho railway stations whero the wounded
nrrlvo await largo crowds of women w-l'li
baskets of Klfl.S and when the huge
cross, which marks tho ambulance train,
comes In and stops, thrro Is a new and
sweet Invasion, all the girls running
along tho corridors with cigarettes, tea,
sugar, cakes and newspapers. Kvcn the
German wounded participate in the sen
rrnl hnspltulily, nnd you frequently hear
Russian women say of n wounded enemy
before her: "Poor one: Is il his fault In
la flKhtiiiff ur?"
The Germans, for their pait, are veiy
.suspicious, asking if tho tea Is not vit

Ing: "When nro we to be hanged?"
