"After having lost much time and

too great attention must not be paid
to the operations in our immediate
vicinity. An evolution ordered in a

Is not necessarily a retreat. The en

had the results of rendering our ad

DESPERATE FIGHT
IN NORTH BELGIUM
Iondon. Aug. 2". 2 HO a. m. A dis-
patch to the Daily Express from the
Hague says: "A bulletin posted here
states that the iermans and Celgians
are fighting bitterly at Hiest and
Aerschot on Lieir way to Antwerp
This news Is causing the greatest un
easiness here For the first time in
the present crisis ihe Dutch realize
the terrible peril which the Germans
have brought to their very doors, for
Germany's advance on Brussels can
have no other object than an attack
on Antwerp C ompetent military cir
cles hero believe that the march on
Brussels was resorted to only as a
sequel to the complete failure of the
German plan of sudden attack on
France. Had Liege not resisted, Ger
many might have remained faithful
to her original plan.
"But Uepe held up the whole Ger
man army for ten days during which
the Belgian government poured am
munition and men into N'amur, thus
preparing for a much longer defense
than was the case at Liege Should
the German armies be heal up at N'a
mur and there Is little doubt but they
will, the keenest disappointment will
be felt In Germany A Belgian diplo
mat told me today ;
"They will never get Namur, Liege

"The Dutch are anxious about the
attack on Antwerp because it would
threaten the Scheldt river which Is
partly a Dutch waterway

ed The Hague barracks. Her consort.
Prince Henry, who before their mar
riage helri a high position in tne Ger
man army, has no active command In

ations. The Dutch people are grato
ful for his discretion."

PRECOCIOUS WILLIE.
Reference was made to precocious
youngsters at a recent dinner in
'ashington. and Senator George C.
Perkins of California was reminded of
a boy who came under that head The
boy, whose name was Willie, the Sen
ator said, lived in a happy home, to
gether with his father, mother and a
sweet sister ot 20 summers or so.
One evening a veteran of the Civil
War was a guest at the house, and af
ter dinner the entire family sat in the
parlor and listened to a recital of the
veteran's adventures.
"It was no picnic. I assure you "
feelingly continued the veteran " "In

"Blug'" suddenly interrupted the
precocious Willie. "That was noth

London, Aug 20, 2:30 a in Re
garding the situation at Louvain, the
Brussels correspondent of the Central
News says"
"When the Germans brought their
heavy artillery Into play In front of
Louvain the Belgian troops decided
to evacuate the place in order to save
the beautiful and historic city from
destruction Therefore they took' up
strong positions on the road to Brus

It Is no use blinking facts that, al
I though the kaiser's scnemes were bad I
ly disarranged bj the determined and
courageous resistance or the Belgians,
his officers und men are moving for-;

For the order to advance was ac
conipanied by the sancuinarv threat,
"Defeat means death in or exile from j
Germany "

Germans without any demonstration,
because of the practical good sense
of the Belgians, which teai-lie.-, them
that resistance after their army is
driven back is fruitless and because
of their supreme confidence that the
British and French will eventually
drive the Germans out of Belgium.
"The Belgian officials are warning
the people not to attempt reprisals
because that would bring reprisals on
them You can hear any kind of ru
mor in Brussels and If the Germans
are determined to attack in force
Brussels will be taken unless the al
lies decide to resist for the sake of
the possession of the town
' The Germans have been using
their cavalry with great audacity and
sometimes with more audacity than
skill They have sent their cavalry
as scouts in all directions and some
reports of battles have been no more
than reconnaissances in force, in
which the Germans used both cavalry
and Infantry and some guns, with
either one of two purposes. They
either were aiming to cover their
flank by these continuous threats or
else were ascertaining the Belgian dis.
positions with a view to an attack
in force.
Honors With Belgians.
"The honors are with the Belgians
in these combats Their bicycle
corps, pedaling rapidly on fine roads,
have responded instantly to the
alarms. The country is wholly un
