LONDON ln its summary of the war situation the London Times states: “Namur has fallen. This, in the words of the official communication, necessitates the withdrawal of a por tion of the allied troops from the line of Sambre to their original defensive position on the French frontier. “The French ministry of war, in an official statement, reminds the nation that the huge extent of front along which' the armies are engaged and the enormous number of troops upon that front make it impossible to estimate the losses. “The battle now raging from Mons to Cere will last several days, and it will be necessary to await a definite result before a sound conclusion can be reached as to the full effect of this first great engagement.’’ France Issues Announcement. PARIS The French wra of fice issued the following announce ment: “The French and English, the plan cf attack having failed owing to un foreseen difficulties, have retired on the covering positions. “West of the Meuse the English array on our left was attacked by the Germans, but behaved admirably, holding its ground with traditional steadiness. “The French assumed the offensive with two army corps. An African brigade in the front line, carried away by their eagerness, were received by a murderous fire. “They did not give an inch, but counter attacked by the Prussian guard, they were obliged to retire, only, however, after inflicting enor mous losses. The Prussian guard es pecially suffered heavily. “East of the Meuse our troops ad vanced across a difficult country and made a vigorous attack when they emerged from the woods, but were obliged to fall back after a stiff fight south of the River Semois. “On order of General Joffre our troops and the British troops with drew to the covering positions. “Our troops are intact; our cavalry has in no way suffered, and our artil lery has affirmed its superiority. Our officers and soldiers are in the best condition, morally and physically. “Asa result of the orders which have been issued the aspect of the struggle will change for a few days. “The French army will remain for a time on the defensive, but at the right moment, to be decided upon by the commander in chief, it will re sume a vigorous offensive. “Our losses are heavy. It would be premature to enumerate them. It would be equally so to enumerate those of the Germans, who suffered so heavily that they were obliged to abandon their counter attacks and es tablish themselves in fresh positions in Lorraine.” PARIS - Three hundred lo* comotives from the railroads of Bel gium were brought to Paris to pre rent them being used by the Germans Don't Mistake the Cause * Many Edgerton People Have Kid ney Trouble and do not Know It.
