along the wide front from Bartfeld to Ussok, the greatest gain being In
the direction of Gummeno.
At this point the Russians descended the southern slope of the Car
pathians, forcing the Austrians back with heavy losses to the line be
tween Mexolaborcz and Smolnlk. At the same time the Russians ad
vanced along the, line between Dnlda and Svednlk, where the Anari.n.,.
unable to make any serious defense, abandoned tlieir stores and trans

There was a most determined opposition on the whole front of bat

highly complimented by the Russian officers.
There are still no Indications that the Germans sent furtliFr rein
forcements to the Austrians In the Carpathians, notwithstanding tlie
ftoct that the German forces along the Niemen river, and near the Ewvt
