ATTACK TEUTONS
SLAVS ASSUME OFFENSIVE FOR
THE FIR8T TIME SINCE REVO
LUTIONISTS COME IN POWER
Storm German Positions Along a Front
of Eighteen Miles in Galicia,
Attack Being Inspired By
Allies, Says Berlin.
London.—The Noldier* of new Rus
al it have assumed the aggressive. For
the firat time alnce tlie revolution last
March Huaaiun troops have begun an
attack on an extensive wale. Along
a front of eighteen and one-half miles
in the region of Brzezany, Galicia,
Russian troops have stormed the Ger
man positions. Berlin says Ihe Rus
sians suffered heavy losses and were
compelled to retire before the German
fire. The attack was made In the sec
tion southeast of Lemberg, where the
artillery firing has been heavy re
cently.
The Russians also made night, at
tacks on both sides of Brzezany and
near Zwyzyn, and Berlin reports as
saults between Zlota Lipa and the
Narayuvka. The artillery arm of the
Russian forces has been active and
from the Berlin report It is learned
that an Intense duel has been In prog
ress from the region of Brzezany to
as fur northward as the middle Stok
hod In Volhyuia, a distance of about
175 miles. Brezezany Is one of the
keys to Lemberg, the Galician capital.
Berlin declares that the Russian at
tacks, which it says were powerful,
were brought about through the pres
sure of the leading entente powers.
Field Marshal llalg continues to
tighten his grip on Lens. On the north
bank of the River Souciiez British
troops have captured German positions
on a front of half a mile southwest
and west of Lens. The British army
during June captured 8086 German
prisoners, Including 175 officers, and
sixty-seven guns, Including two heavy
guns, us well as much other war ma
terial.
The French and Germans continue
to battle at various points on the front
from Cerny to the Verdun region.
East of Cerny the French have re
pulsed German attacks and in the re
gion of Prunay, east of Rheims, u Ger
man surprise attack was thrown hack
with heavy losses. On the left bank
of the Meuse the fighting lias brought
no change in position.
BRITISH PREMIER OPTIMISTIC
Declares Germans Being Taught Vir
tue of Humility With Fierce Lash
Dundee.—"We have driven the
great army of Germany underground,"
said Premier Lloyd George in a speech
here June 30. "When a great army is
driven to these tactics, it Is the begin
ning of the end ; it means that we are
pounding a sense of inferiority into ev
ery pore of the German military inind.
"It is gooil for the war, is even bet
ter ftir after the war. As long ns
the Prussians have an idea of superior
ity in their minds, Europe will not he
a decent place for people to live in
peace. It will be easier after this."
The Prussian, said Mr. Lloyd
George, lias many virtues, but a sense
of humility lias never been among
them. The premier added that the
Prussian is now being taught the vir
tue of humility with a fierce and re
lentless lash.
Congressmen Play Ball.

ties broke the recent strike at tlie
shipyards in Stettin by the same
means they use«i to crush tlie April

Germany Seeking More Capital
Berlin.—The reichstag this week wilt

supplementing tlie budget for the cur
rent fiscal year authorizing the chan
cellor to mobilize a new war credit of
fifteen billion marks, bringing tlie tti
tal appropriations for the war to 04,

HAS MESSAGE FOR ALL BOYS
Young Man Draws Leseon Front
Strange Experience Which Fell
to His Lot.
"I wish I could send a messuge to
every boy in the world of a sud an«l
strange coincidence that happened to
me when I was a boy," exclaimed a
young man the other day.
"One hot, sultry July afternoon—the
hottest day we had that summer—I
had Just turned our street corner when
I met my futher.
" 'I wish you would deliver this
package for me, Joe,' he said rather
weakly, as I remembered afterward.]
Now I was only thirteen years old and
had been out playing in the hot sun all '
morning and was all in when I met
my father after playing a ten-inning'
game with our side the losers. My]
first impulse was to refuse, but one'
glance at his kind, gentle face stopped
me. 'Surely I will go, father,' I said;'
pleasantly.
'"Thank you, son,' was the answer.!
'I was going myself, but I don't feel j
very well today and I thought you.
would not refuse, ns you have always!
been a good boy to me, Joe.'
"I walked awny thinking father did'
not care much about his only son, or
he would not send me on this Jaunt]
(about one mile and a half), on such,
a hot day. But somehow the word«,
'I thought you would not refuse,' and ;
'You have always been a good boy to
me, Joe,' seemed to ring In my ears
and before I reached the end of my
Journey I was whistling a merry tune.
"Returning home, I saw our doctor's'
auto and a crowd of people at our
door. One of my aunts hurried to meet
me with tears rolling down her cheeks.
'Your father fell dead Just as he reach
ed the stoop,' she said.
"I found out later the last words my
father spoke were. 'You have always
been a good boy to me, Joe.' "
t
New Talking "Movies."
Application has been made for a
patent on a very elaborate device
which would produce a combination of
the cinematograph and the phonograph
to give us moving pictures wherein the
characters not only move but speak.
The idea of such pictures is not new,
but the difficulties of synchronizing
have hitherto pnoved insurmountable.
By synchronizing is meant the exact
coincidence of the motion picture, pro
jected by one machine, with the speech
supposed to proceed from the char
acters, which is produced by quite an
other. Unless the speech comes at
the right instant, the result is laugh
able rather than impressive. In the
proposed device the actual speech of
the character is transmitted by wire
less telephone to a phonograph whose
complex receiving mechanism Is syn
chronized with the movements of the
moving picture camera.
Much in Little.
Senator James A. McDougnl was an
orator who abided by Shakespeare's
maxim that "brevity Is the soul of
wit." He could compact more elo
quence Into a few sentences than oth
er speakers diffused through long
harangues. When urged to partici
pate in mortuary ceremonies he said :
"I doubt whether or not we should
mourn for any of the dead. I am con
fident that there should be no mourn
ing for those who render themselves
up as sacrifices in any just and holy
cause. It better becomes us to praise
and dignify them,
cities and kingdoms die, but the eter
nal thought lives on. Great thought. In
incorporate with great action, does not
die, but lives a universal life, and Ita
power is felt, vibrating through all
spirit and throughout all ages."
It Is true that
Elephant In Biblical Hebrew.
It is said by scholars that no word
In Biblical Hebrew denotes an el<*
phant, yet the Hebrews were familiar
with ivory, and the skilled workmen of
Hiram, king of Tyre, fashioned the
great ivory throne of Solomon and
overlaid It with pure gold.
