FIGHTING CONTINUES WITH GERMANS STILL HOLDING THEIR GROUND Russians Victorious In East Surprise That Decisive Battle Has Not Been Fought. London, Oct. 6.—General Von Kluck reinforced with troops from the Ger man center, continues to make a de termined stand against the attempt of the allies to outflank him. General French, who yesterday re ported all Oerman attacks in this reg ion repulsed, and that the allies had resumed the offensive, announced to day that the battle to the north of the Oise, which commenced Sept. 25, con tinues with great violence, with no de cisive result, but that at certain points the French had to yield ground. The Germans in a report last night said the battle was proceeding success fully for them. Both in London and Paris, there is the greatest confidence, although some surprise at the display aad the success of the Germans In pre venting the outflanking movement. Along the rest of the line, a French communication says, there has been no change. Che defeat of the German army which invaded Russia from East Prus sia appears from Russian accounts to have been even more decisive than previously announced. According to the Russian ambassador at Rome the Germans were completely routed, with a loss of 70,000 and forced to abandon -ewrything. The Russians are now moving for ward with the object of invading East Prussia again. This victory, as com plete as reported, is of the greatest importance to the Russians, as it will prevent the Germans undertaking land and sea operations, which would have compelled Russia to turn at least part •of its attention in this direction. If Germans have not already retired from the left bank of the Niomen river at Druskeniki, their defeat at Augus towo must compel them to. Before the Russian advance in Ga lieia the peasants are fleeing the coun try, and It is reported 20,800 of them liave reached Bohemia.

PAUL NAN SLAIN IN MONTANA BATTLE 0. N. CIVIL ENGINEER MEETS DEATH IN RAID BY REPORTED I. W. W. MEN. Arthur J. Giantvalley, 1596 Marshall avenue, St. Paul, was killed at Poplar, Mont., yesterday in an attack made by 150 men upon the commissary of a Great Northern surveying party. Giant valley was a civil engineer employed by the railway and was a member of the party. Dispatches from Montana last night said that two of the at tacking party were slain and that a citizen of Wolf Point, Mont., was killed in a second raid made by the same band at that point. The dis patches said that the attackers were members of the I. W. W., on their way to Butte to attend a big gather ing of the order called to discuss al leged wrongs inflicted upon I. W. W. men by the Montana militia. The party was reported to have made the raids in quest of food. Later dispatches announced that Indian police, at the head of a posse of 50 Indians, surrounded nearly one hundred of the band of marauders at Poplar and arrested them, while the remaining members escaped to Glas cow, Mont. Poplar Is on the Fort Peck Indian reservation. Press dispatches from Butte, Mont., say that men on their war to the I. W. W. gathering have committed «any depredations in Montana and in North Dakota. The same "army" that was broke up in the Poplar battle is said to have held up and robbed threshing crews in the vicinity neajr Williston, N. D., and to have set fire to several threshing outfits. NEW BANKING SYSTEM AT LINCOLN SCHOOL Little Angeline Koehn in the Second Grade Lincoln is the first child in Val ley City to deposit money in the new Public School Banking System which has been started at the Lincoln school. She has started an account at the bank with the sum of one penny which will grow from year to year. So that by the time she is through the Eighth grade, or through High school, she will have a goodly amount. It has been a problem to the teach ers for a number of years, how to stop so much candy eating and money spending among the school children, and encourage thrlftiness. If the child ren with a penny for candy here, or a penny earned there, or five cents earned again, will be encouraged to bring it to school and deposited it, the habit will soon be formed for saving, and the account soon grow. The pennies are deposited by the child in an envelope at school in care of the teacher of their grade. Once a week these envelopes, labeled, dated and amounts, are collected by the bank, and deposited in the bank to the child's account. The teachers in the Lincoln school are doing all in their power to en courage the children, and If the par ents will also urge and encourage at home, there is no reason why every child In the Lincoln school cannot have an account. Start with a penny and watch it grow, children! MANSFIELD. Mrs. Wm. Jones will go soon to visit her parents near Moose Jaw, Canada. Mr. and Mrs. Ed.

Jones is erecting a new dwelling house on his farm at Clark it THIS I88UE TEN PACES THE WEEKLY TIMES-RECORD Continuous conflicting claims of suc cess have confused the operations dur ing the week along the western battle front. These have arisen from the two directions in which the fighting is in progress. The alliea have before them the double object of moving their army to the north, toward Belgium, and at the same time forcing von Kluck's and von Boehm's united fronts to the east, away from their chief lines of com munication. The French and British have succeeded in the first of the3e of fensive moves since the week began, but in the second they have consistent ly failed. Hence both sides have made rightful use of laconic optimism in their official reports. The more im portant success of the week has been Germany's, since it is of the most vi tal consequence that her railway com munications be safely guarded. The allies, while advancing to the north, have been shoved farther to the west, which means a greater distance separ ates them from the German communi cations at the end of the week than did at the beginning. As the allies lengthen their line to the north, heavily strengthening it throughout, the Germans must do like wise. High ability has been demon strated by the Germans this week in remodeling their southern and eastern battle fronts to answer the west's call for reinforcements. Nevertheless the time must come when the superior numbers of the allies will tell, as the battle line continues to cover more and more ground.

There is no rea son for believing them important. The week has seen all other operations subordinated by mutual consent to the struggle on the German right, and it is becoming more and more apparent that the vicinity of the Belgian fron tier will see the decisive conflict in the Aisne campaign. Russia has checked its Galacian ad vance during the week and very prop erly exhibits greater caution as her armies approach Cracow and the Ger man boundary. The comparatively simple strategy of the Galician cam paign is being encroached upon by the far more complicated plans of the march to Berlin. The Russian general staff Is now compelled to face the fact that the Germans are occupying parts of Po land in force. To start for Berlin and leave the German corps '"in the rear would be a dangerous undertaking. Hence, operations on an extensive scale have been begun against them, while the Galician campaign has been slowed down. The present week's changed offen sive, therefore, may be said to mark the beginning of Russia's preparations for Its invasion of Germany.

Work in Barnes County At tracts Attention of Mani toba Agriculturalists.
