LONDON. Sept. 25.
Slight gains for the Allies at Pe
ronne and before St. Quentin on the
German right in the last 24 hours are
offset by advantage gained by tho
Kaiser's troops against the French
right, southeast of Verdun.
The Germans are undoubtedly rush
ing reinforcements from the garrisons
left in Belgium to bolster the defenses
of General von Kluk and. despite tho
optimistic reports from the roar of the
Allies, apparently are succeeding in
holding their positions there. Dis
patches received the day before yes

ronne four days previous by the
French and English. Today's dis-

patches assert Just as Jubilantly that
the Allies have occupied Peronne.
That the Germans have, on the other
hand, made substantial advances
against the French right is shown by
the olHclal statement of the French
War Office this afternoon.
"The Germans have occupied tho
, heights of the Mouse and are marching
i In the direction of St. Miliiel," says the
statpment. This can mean nothing but
that Verdun, long the object of a -stubborn
attack by the Germans, is now
attacked on three sides, with the rail
