Novogeorgievsk Falls, According
to Official Announcement
Made in Berlin
Berlin. Aug. 20, via London, 12.20
P. M. Official announcement waa
mad* here to-day ot the capture of the
important Russian fortress of Novo
georgievsk. with more than 20,000
men. The statement follows:
"The fortress of Novogeorgievsk,
the enemy's last bulwark in Poland,
has been captured after stubborn re
"The entire garrison, including over
20,000 men, and an enormous stock of
war material, fell Into our hands.
"The emperor left for Novogeor
gievsk in order to elvs the thanks ot
himself and the fatherland to the
leader of the attack. General von
Beseler, and his troops."
The capture of Novogeorgievsk has
been foreseen since the fall of War
saw. When the general Russian re
silient Grand Duke Nicholas, the Rus
sian commander-in-chief, elected to
Jeave a garrison In the fortress rather
than evacuate this position, as it was
recognized that the only question was
how long the defenders would be able
to hold out.
The grand duke's decision, appar
ently. was due to the strategical po
sition of the fortress. So long as the
Russians retained It they were able to
stop communication on the Vistula
rtver. Novogeorgievsk is nineteen
miles northwest of Warsaw and is sit
uated at the junction of the Vistula,
Narew and Wkra rivers.
For nearly two weeks the fortress
had been completely invested and sev
eral outlying forts were captured
earlier this week.

Snake Bites Send Many
Persons to Hospitals
By Associated Press
Houston, Tex., Aug. 20.—Evidence
of the unusual destructiveness of Mon
day's hurricane was seen in Houston's
hospitals to-day, which house between
fifty and one hundred persons, either
injured in the storm or suffering from
illness contracted in long exposure.
Most of these patients are from towns
along the coast.
Many of those in the hospitals are
suffering from snake bite —a real dan

water drives snakes upon the few
objects above water.

Woman Seriously Hurt Is Belief;
Hit Bridge Coping at
Three women and the driver of a
jitney, said to belong to C. D. Hauck,
of Fourteenth and Derry streets, were
thrown to the roadway, but escaped
uninjured, early this morning when
the machine struck the end of the
coping of the bridge across the creek
Just above the station at Dauphin.
So far as known, all escaped serious
Injury, although one of the women Is
reported to have a broken hip, but this
could not be verified. The front axle
of the machine was bent double and
the spring smashed.
Every effort was made to conceal
the identity of those in the machine.
From witnesses who heard the crash
it was learned that three women and
a man were seen to pick thefnselves
from the dust of the bridge after the
machine rammed the stone wall. Some
say the quartet started to walk toward
the city, while others assert a passing
auto was stopped and an injured
woman placed In it.
The license number on the wrecked
machine is said to be 121938. At the
State Highway Department it was said
this tag was issued to Mary Keiss, of
Wllliamsport. The Jitney license on
it was issued to Mr. Hauck, who is the

name of the driver of the machine
were futile.

tory of the European events leading up
to the present war. and gave voice to a
ringing prediction of German success
in the military events of the future.
On this topic the chancellor, after a
reference to Germany's allies, said:
"We ourselves have taken almost all
Galicla and a large part of Poland.
Lithuania and Courland, and our lines
everywhere, far advanced into the
enemy's countries, stand like walls.
We ourselves have strong armies free
at our disposal for new enterprises.

One of the marked features of the
European conflict that distinguishes
it from the wars of the past is the
absence of smoke on the firing lines.
Owing to the use of smokeless powder,
no smoke is made when a rifle is dis
charged, while the heaviest artillery
throws off nothing more than a thin
mist that is invisible a hundred yards
away and disappears within a few sec
onds after the gun Is flred. Only when
shrapnel or a shell explodes in the
enemy's lines is there anything visible
in the way of smoke, the whole pur
pose being to conceal the position of
the guns throwing the projectiles while
making the points where projectiles
explode clearly visible. The expres
sion, "the smoke of battle," so faith
fully descriptive of the wars of the
past, has little meaning when applied
i to a modern war.—From the August
