PARIS The Athens correspon dent of L’lnformation informs his paper he has received from Mytilene news that after another serious battle on the Gallipoli Peninsula the allies’ right wing has advanced 2-00 yards and that the bombardment of the in terior Dardanelles forts continues. Czar Fears Attack by Roumania. BERLIN A dispatch to the Tageblatt from its correspondent at Csernowitz. Bukowina, says: “The Russians are fortifying their Roumanian border. Many thousands of men are at work digging trenches parallel with the border and building barbed wire entanglements. The op erations are being rushed with all speed.” The Russian government of Bessar abia borders Roumania on the east. Austria-Hungary is reported to have pledged Roumania to undertake the conquest of Bessarabia and transfer it to the Balkan state in exchnge for Roumania’s active support in the war. Russia, on the other hand, has at tempted to win the support of Rou mania for the allies by promising the cession of the Hungarian territory of Transsyvania which borders Rouma liia on the west. Austria Makes Proposals. BUCHAREST The Austro-Hun garian minister here has present ed to the prime minister proposals offering Roumanian certain conces sions in exchange for definite neutral ity and facilities for supplying Tur key with munitions of war. She offers to cede to Roumania a part of Bukowina as far north as Sereth and at the same time ameli orate the treatment of Roumanians in the monarchy, granting a university to Brashow, large admission of Rou manians in Hungary into the public service and greater liberty of admin istration to the Roumanian churches. An alternate proposal affects the en try of Roumania into the field of ac tion on the side of the Germania powers. Bombs Dropped on Venice. MILAN Two Austrian aviators dropped bombs near the famous palace of the Doges Sunday in the fourth air raid on Venive since the beginning of the Austro-Italian war. Other missiles fell in the grand canal and near historic buildings. Three women and children were slightly injured when bombs wrecked two dwellings. LAST GERMAN RAIDER DESTROYED BY BRITISH Konigsberg Sunk by Monitors in German East Africa. LONDON The Iliver Rufiji, v Inch flows through German East Af rica and empties into the Indian ocean, was the scene of a naval en gagement between two British river monitors and the Get man cruiser Konigsberg on July 4. The Konigs fcerg, which is the last of the Ger man sea raiders, was partially de stroyed, but not until her guns had killed four British sailors. A week later the river monitors returned and completed the work of destruction. The admiralty issued the following statement regarding this exploit: On July 4 the British river moni tors Severn and Mersey entered the River Rufiji and opened fire on the German cruiser Konigsberg. sheltered there since October. The Konigsberg replied and her shells struck the Mer sey twice. The monitors’ guns hit the Konffrsberg six times and after six hours of intermittent firing aer ial scouts reported that the cruiser’s masts were still standing. A salvo from the monitors started a fire amid ship on the Konigsberg and one gun which had been firing up to this time was silenced. During the action the Konigsberg probably was incapacitated. H. M. S. Weymouth supported the monitors and H. M. S. Pioneer en gaged the gun s at the mouth of the river. On July 11 a further attack re sulted in the total destruction of the Konigsberg. During the first attack four British sailors were killed and four were wounded by one shell which struck the Mersey. During the second at tack two men on the Mersey were wounded. JOHN R. LAWSON Labor Leader, Convicted of Murder, Gets Life. J hoto by American Press Association A GENERAL SURVEY OF THE WAR. Thursday, July 8. —The Russians seem to have brought their enemies to a halt in the district north and east of Krasnik where, for a day, it looked as if the Teutons were ir resistibly beaded for Lublin or Cholm and the strategic railroad connecting them. Fighting east of the Meuse has re sulted favorably to the Germans be tween Ailly and Apremont, where the French positions were occupied on a front of nearly a mile. North of these positions, at Les Eparges, the Ger mans admit losing 100 yards of trench. While engaged in a reconnoissance in the upper Adriatic the Italian ar mored cruiser Amalfi was sunk by an Austrian submarine. Practically all the officers and crew were saved. Engagements are reported at many points along the Austro-Italian front, in several of which the Austrians are the aggressors. The struggle to cap ture Goritz continues, and Rome claims the resistance of the enemy is being gradually overcome. Friday, July 9. —Developments have been few in the main war zone dur ing the last twenty-four hours. From Petrograd comes a story of how the drive of Archduke Joseph Ferdinand, north of Krasnik, was brought to a sudden and inglorious end. The archduke, elated by victory and seeing the chance for which the Teu tons have been looking since the war began, dashed on into a ambuscade prepared by the wily Slavs. In his ex cess of zeal his Ilank was exposed, and the Russians, concealed in a wood to the right of the road he was traveling, fell upon him. At least such is the Petrograd version of what hap pened. It is added that the slaughter of the Austrians was terrific, and that they were forced to fall back toward Krasnik, a distance of twelve miles. On the Italian .and western fronts there are no significant changes in the situation. Great Britain has added 322,450 square miles of territory to her South African possessions. General Botha has completed the conquest of Ger man Southwest Africa, receiving the surrender of all the military forces. Saturday, Juiy 10.— A Petrograd dis patch declares the Russians are on the offensive again, not merely in the Krasnik region, but farther south, where the army of General Macken ser is supposed to be operating. The claim is made that 15,000 prisoners have been taken and that Mackensen’s forces are retiring on a wide front. A notable French achievement is the capture of the Ban-de-Sapt posi tion in the Vosges, which the Ger mans have held since the middle of June. In the Woevre district the fight ing is especially severe, and Berlin claims the capture of 350 yards of trench in he Pretre forest. The main object of Italian attacks continues to be the defenses of Goritz. Sunday, July 11. —In the area south east of Lublin the Austro German forces are everywhere withdrawing and in some parts the retreat has the character of flight according to an of ficial statement from Petrograd. The invading armies in other districts are showing great activity, but it remains to be seen whether this activity in dicates serious aggressive intentions or merely is designed to suggest tlieir existence so as to disturb the plans of the Russians. After battling 120 days for the hill country between Bethune and Arras, the French forces are in possession of all the eminence? looking out upon the plain of Flanders. The Italian forces which are press ing northward through ruerod country toward Innichen, where vhq'r ohective is to cut the Franzjenfssf • 'nilread. one of the lines serving T ■ ent, have begun the bombardment of the Landrc fortifications.

But once they get the good tobacco taste they want to help other men. That’s why they tell one another about it A little chew of pure, rich, mellow tobacco —seasoned and sweetened just enough—cuts out so much of the grinding and spitting. THE REAL TOBACCO CHEW !S NOW CUT TWO WAYS|T)# W-B £UT IS LONG SHRED. RIGHT-CUT IS SHORT SHRED, ( ▼ Take less than one-quarter the old size chew. It will be more satisfying than a mouthful of ordinary tobacco. Just take a nibble of it until you find the strength chew that suits you, then see how easily and evenly the real tobacco taste comes, how it satisfies, how much less you have to spit, how few chews you take to be tobacco satisfied. That’s why it is The Real Tobacco Chew. That’s why it costs less in the end. The taste of pure, rich tobacco does not need to be covered up. Aa excess of licorice and sweetening makes you spit too much.
