Londoir Dec. 21.- In Poland and Galicia battles are being fought between the Russians and the German and Austrian allies amid deep snow in hitter cold. In Belgium aud Northern France the Germans and the French, British and Belgian allies are contesting tho mud fields, foot by foot. , No news of any decisive gain came from either arena to-day. The Russian and German claims continue directly contradictory. ' The Germans in Poland again are making a fierce attack toward the capi tal and the Russians are opposing them on the east bank of "the Bzura River, thirty miles west of Warsaw. Grand Duke Nicholas' army here holds a natural strategic line, fifty miles long, running, roughly, north and south along the east banks of the Bzura and Rawka Rivers. The Petrograd official report claims that the German force in North Poland has retreated across the boundary into East Prussia in a northwesterly direc tion. It asserts also that the Austrian ad vance through the Carpathian passes to the north has been checked and attempts of the Przcmysl garrison to break through the lines have been repulsed. According to this report the Austrians have been driven into the fortifications with heavy slaughter. ; The Austrian communication claims successes in the Carpathians, but admits that the Russians again occupy Galicia and South Poland in force. Apparently, therefore, the' Cracow and Premysl in vestments are proceeding and have not been broken. Serious fighting between the Russians and Turks around Erzerum, Turkish Armenia, has been stopped by a six foot snowfall and the intense cold, from which the Arabs are suffering bitterly.

"Mutt and Jeff" in a New Guise. After three seasons of veritable tri umph, Gus Hill comes back for a fourth season with bis parennial success, "Mutt and Jeff." in an entire new dress. "In Mexico" is the title of the story that is to form a back-ground for Bud Fisher's inimitable characters which easily as sume he credit of the greatest and most durable success of the cartoon world. The new production is an in novation of play craftsman's work, em bodying about 11 of the real meat of standard amusement; the thrill of the drama, the side-splitting situations qf the farce comedy, the extravagance and tinselled brilliancy of the burlesque and the harmonious art of musical comedy, not forgetting a scenic production, elec trically embellished, including soma FOR THE. j&js? 6Hr!tma Festivities DINNERS, DANCES, PARTIES and all ENTERTAINMENTS . we can supply you with Place Cards Tally Cards Danes Programs Cards Score Pads, Etc.

"' " II store startling mechanical effects that over shadow all previous attempts at real ism. Contrary "Jto the general idea of producing managers to frame up their offerings for the second and third yoara cheaply and "clean op," speaking in the parlance of the profession,' Mr. Hill has spent more rnooey and greater en ergy in this season's "Mutt and Jeff in Mexico" than on any of tho previous productions, so great is bis faith in the lasting qualities of the cartoon play. In this season's entertainment there isn't a thing left but. "Mutt and Jeff." The story music, lyrics, scenery and electrical effecta are all, new. Mr, Hill has selected a cast superior in every re spect to any he' has yet been able to offer. All in all "Mutt and Jeff in Mexico" will surely live up to the title of the one great big hit of the show world and "it will go some." It comes to the Reynolds Theatre Thursday night, Dec. 24.
