Declares Protectorate Over 14,000,000
People and Takes Sultan's Last Foot
of Territory in Africa, Italy Having
Taken Tripoli a Few Years Ago
Germans Claim That Two
Out of Four British De
stroyers Were Lost
1,300,000 SQUARE MILES
Continued Retreat of Russians is Re
ported But Petrograd Refuses to Con
cede Defeat and Characterizes Move
ment as of No Importance
London, Dec. 18, 12:18 p. m. Again the Germans and the Aus-
trians seem to be on the crest of the wave of battle as the intermin
able struggle in the East continues ; again Berlin is gay with flags,
and again Petrograd declines to concede victory to the invaders
Berlin and Vienna contend, however, that the Russians are falling
back along the entire front from the Baltic to the Carpathians,
with the invading center less than 30 miles from Warsaw.
To the south, where a few weeks ago the Russians were pouring
over the Carpathians into Hungary, the combined Austro-German
columns have now forced them back and, it is asserted, have ad
vanced two-thirds of the way across Galicia and are nearing the
fortress of Lemburg, occupied by the Russians early in the cam
paign. The Russian official announcements admit none of this. They
dismiss the happenings in Galicia as engagements of no impor
tance, and they class the operations to the west of Warsaw in the
same category. It is claimed, moreover, that the extreme Russian
right near Mlawa thrust the Germans back and the Russian cav
alry swung across the southern border of East Prussia.
In the west arena, no event of great importance is reported.
Foot by foot the allies appear to be forcing the Germans out of
their trenches in Flanders and maintaining the pressure elsewhere
on the front from the sea to Switzerland.
The British press to-day makes a feature of the annexation of
Egypt and the Sudan, which takes from the sultan of Turkey
14,000,000 subjects and 1,300,000 square miles of land. This ac
tion, moreover, robs the Turk of his last foothold in Africa, Italy
having taken Tripoli from him a" few years ago.

Horses Did a Few Circus Stunts Other
Horse Features About Barre.
Zero conditions in town and outside
have had their effect on driving and draft
horses w itlnn the past two days, the ani
mals seemingly becoming inured to the
cold weather only by degrees. Since
yesterday at least three minor road ac
cidents have been replete with sensation
al features and with potential possibili
ties of grave danger for the drivers. At
the Granite street intersection of N'orth
Main street this forenoon, a driver of
one of the dump carts used in transport
ing material to the new hospital, had
his ejus too warmly bundled to hear the
upproach of a street car from the north.
It was when he started to rem his horses
across the trolley track that the Wash

and the horses, essayed a number of
tancy steps which whirled the outfit
around as man as three times, specta
tors say, before the excitement was over.
More damage and serious results were
probably averted by the fact that Con
ductor W, A. Lawson in charge of the
street car, applied his brakes swiftly

of Mrs. Francis Thompson at 1 Spauld-

lium Coutts gathered there to give him
a farewell reception. Mr. Coutts had
decided to return to his home in Scot
land and, unknown to him, hii friends
prepared to give him a royal send-otf.
For nine years Mr. Coutts has been a
resident of Barre, coming here from
Scotland. Until recently he was employ-
d at Barclay Bros.' stone shed.
When the party dropped in upon him
shortly after suppertime, Mr. CoutU
was very much surprised. At once the
njoyment ot tho evening began. Nearly
every person ot the party responded
when called upon for a song. One of
the best of these was one by James Mon
roe, for when called he appeared from an
other room dressed in woman's garments.
With Ins song he gave an exhibition of
dancing which caused a constant uproar
from start to finish. "Tippcrary," the
known war song, was sung freqeuntly.
Jn behalf of the company Alex Porter
presented, Mr. Coutts a suit case and a
gold-mounted cigar case filled with ci
gars. After tins, sandwiches, cake, coffee
and fruit were served to the company.
During the evening cigars and candy
were passed to the guests. When it
came time for Mr. Coutts to leave for

were indicative of a very prosperous
year in the affairs of the temple. Nu
merically, the order is stronger than ever
before and is well intrenched financially.
At the ceremonial, to be held either in
Barre or nearer the New Hampshire line,
the membership will receive another
edimulating impetus.
After the business meeting there was
an impromptu program of speechmaking
and a short entertainment to which a
number of the delegates contributed. J.
Ward Carver, the retiring royal vizier,
spoke appreciatively of the co-operation
shown him by other officers of the temple
in 1014 and bespoke for his successor a
hearty welcome. There was music from
an Edison disc machine and before ad
journment a delightful buffet luncheon
was served.
Plans are already in the making for a
big ceremonial of Suadah temple to lie
held here in Barre within a few weeks.
It may be necessary to defer the meeting
until the latter part of the winter, but
preparations will go on just the same.
