The Austro-Germans, in the north, ; have bsgun a more vigorous offensive and have crossed the Danube near Orosova. This brings much nearer the linking up of the armies of the Germanic allies and those of Bulgaria and the opening of the way through Bulgaria to Constantinople. Success is not being achieved with out heavy losses as the Serbian vet rans, well entrenched in their moun tains , are offering stubborn resis ance and are making the invaders pay a big price for every mi'.e of country invaded. ^ French Fight Beside Serbs. French troops are fighting beside the 'Serbs in the southeastern section and reports from Athens say that other steps are being taken by the allies to help their small partner. Ad ditional troops are being landed at Saloniki Bulgarian ports In tne Aegean and Black seas are being bombarded and i t is believed that men and munitions will be sent tc Sertva by still another route. With < ut the active co-opera;ion of Greece and Rournania it is feared here, the allies will not be able ,o do much for seine weeks.. The Russians who have been landed at Doumenness, Courtiand, have, ac cording to Berlin, re-embarked. If this is so, it is probable that the land ing was intended as a diversion in the hope of drawing German troops from the Riga and Dvinsk regions, where very hard fighting is still in progress. There is no news of Field Marshal Von Hindenberg’s drive toward Dvina southeast of Riga, but north west of Dvinsk he has made another attempt to reach the river and claims ,rT‘,J ■ ww ■■ ii —11 ■ m m ———111 ■ ——^Ti ..——i——m, rm waMumaauMwaBBnaBB^BaOTanBMUHaMMMBHBMM Full of Fascinating Interest to Every Lady in This Vicin ity; Our ILeady-to-Wear is Keyed Up to the minute We do not show impractical styles or impossible Freaks, but rather conservative, sensible garments.

Ilouskt, which has figured promi nently in all the recent communica tions has been captured by the Ger mans. The persistence with which the Germans are attacking in this region shows the importance they attach to the capture of Dvinsk and Riga and the line of the Dvina railroad before winter sets in. On the rest of the eastern front the Russians continue their isolated at tacks to prevent the Germans from establishing a line of entrenchments such as they succeeded in doing be fore Warsaw last year, after the first attempts failed. After a few weeks of quiet for the Germans the fighting on the west consists mostly of artillery engage ments. I). & G. TIME CARD Daily Passenger Service Leave Texarkana, east.7 a. m.
