ITALIANS ARE FIRM AS BIG BATTLE IMPENDS ON THE RIVER PIAVE Advancing Germans Are Almost Within Artillery Range of Venice, Which Fears Bombardment, and Has Covered the Doges Famous Palace With Sand Bags. (Or Artortatfd FrrM.) i Italian Headquarters in Northern Italy, Nov. 13. A heavy and contin- nous bombardment is proceeding along the lower Piave river, marking the opening stages o! extensive oper ations on this new line. Whether a general engagement is imminent depends largely upon the enemy, as the Italians are now en trenched behind the river and fight ing defensive tactics, with the stream and their re-established forces check ing the further extension of the Aus-tro-German offensive. The engage ments thus far have consisted of epi sodes at detached points, although the shelling extends almost uninterrupt edly for 40 miles along the lower Piave. The crash of some enemy heavy guns is now heard, showing that the Austrians and Germans have been able to bring up a few of these monster pieces. No longer is a secret made of the fact that Piave is the line of defense to which the supreme command has been bending its energies steadily for (he last 10 days. The upper end of this line joins the Trentmo front, making virtually one unified front, ca'ninir in a huee arc from Lake Garda to the mouth of the Piave, near Venice. ; Protection of Venice. Precautionary measures to protect Venice continue, lest the enemy, , whose long range guns are not far off, should attempt to bombard the famous art center. The palace of the Doges has been covered with sand bagsfand the delicate facade has been The Campanile has sand bags for 40 feet around the base. The Grand canal is filled with gondolas being ,i.rt (nr trantnrtrtation OUrDOSGS. i "In the sector where a small de tachment off our troops had taken up their places in the trenches as a part of their training the enemy (as it customary -in trench warfare when fresh troops are oeueveo io nave taken places in front line trenches) fof reconnaissance purposes executed a well-planr.ed . raid and succeeeded in temporarily penetrating the short segment of the line held by our forces, inflicting a few casualties and taking prisoners.

Many of them had been paroled after the Winter palace surrendered last week and they feared! to trust themselves again in the, hands of the Bolsheviki. . ' Capture Antonoff. In taking the exchange the cadets had captured M. Antonoff, the assist ant minister of war, .whom they held prisoner. j Panic toon seized the defenders. The officers in desperation cut the buttons' and insignia from their uni forms, while others discarded their unjforms and attired themselves in the garments of the linemen. Frantic telephone calls were sent in every di rection asking for help. Finally M. Antonoff and Mr. Williams were sent to parley with Bolsheviki, who prom ised the men would be spared if they surrendered. Thisithe cadets did, one by one. Many ot tne telepnone oper ators remained at their posts through out the firing. Miss Beatty cheered and encouraged the more timorous girls and assisted in treating the wounds of cadets who had been shot by the Bolsheviki. "My God! I've Found Hir."

Mr. Piattl for the state asked. "No, sir, I was not" "Were you at your home between 3 o'clock and. the time you met Learned?' ' "I don't see how I could have been," Nethaway replied. "I met Learned and went in his car iwith him to look at some property. We came back and he left me and I got in my car and drove home. That was about 4 o'clock." ' - Nethaway testified that he left his car standing in the shade near the station while he went with Learned in Learned car to look at the land. , Hit wife was to meet him at the Bnggs station to go with him and Mr. Learned to look at the land in question, he testified. Later se was going to go to ber sisters. She did not appear. He did not worry about her - until he returned with Mr. Learned and found that she jiad not arrived yet. ..:y, Misses Wife. ' "I then drove around home. The door was locked and I took out my keys and went in. But she was not there." Mrs. Herdman in the morning ses sion testified that at the time the nego, Smith, stepped up on the porch and knocked at the door that the door was slightly open but that the screen was shut Nethaway testified that he then called up her sisters, Mrs. Bagero and Mrs. Dalby and asked where his wife was. Then he drove back to his office in Florence and "took off his coat and vest and washed his hands." rrom the office he called the sisters again and then got in the auto and started for home. There were three soldier boys on the street that I tried to get to ride with me, but they wouldn't come. Then I saw the Holseman boy and got him to go with me. I told him that I was worried about my wife be cause I couldn't find her. Then we picked up another fellow that 1 didn't know and I got him to go with me." Nethaway Reaches Scene, "We got to the bridge and I told the boys to go up each side of the track. I went up the middle of the track looking on both sides. I went clear home.' I saw Herdman and asked him if he had seen my wife. He said that he had seen a negro go ing away from the house 15 minutes ago. "Werej'ou worried about your wife at this timet." "When I heard about that negro you bet I was worried," Nethaway answered. He testified finally to the search with Herdman along the banks where he found his wife's body. Mrs. Herdman Testifies. Mrs. Jessie Herdman, wife of the telegraph operator at Briggs station, and her husband were the principal witneses for the state during the morning. "I saw Mr. Nethaway come home in his car about 3:16," Mrs. Herdman testified. "He left again in about five minutes. He left hit motor running while he went into the house. He drove away in a hurry. "We were lying down and heard a noise down the tracks. 'What was that?' I said to Mr. Herdman. 'It's only some pigeons out on the tracks he, replied.'- , Mrs. Herdman testified that the heard the Nethaway dog bark and upon looking up saw Smith walk up on the Nethaway porch and rap at the door, The dog came running up to him and he patted it on the head. He left immediately and came to the Herdman yard, where he drank from hit hand at the pump and, went away, she said, , Thomas A. Edwards testified to finding Mrs. Nethaway't hat bv a path where someone had walked up the hill through the grass. The hat was half way up the hiU between the right-of-way and the place where the body was found. The little blue and white hat was exhibited in court Nethaway Showa Strain. At this point in the testimony the veins stood out on Nethaway't fore head ad he buried his face in his handkerchief. His sister put her arm about his neck to steady him. ' Edwards testified that he later found a piece of Mrs. Nethaway's skirt at a soot near the right-of-way at the foot of the hill.

Bullets spattered against the facades of the buildings and one military ca det fell in a crumpled heap across the street from the Associated Press of fice. Another fell with a shot through the head as he was warning the on lookers to seek safer quarters. The military cadets within the tele phone exchange surrendered shortly after dusk, when their ammunition became exhausted. The citv then be came quiet except for occasional spas modic firing. Two other clashes between the military cadets and the Bolsheviki oc curred at the Fontakna bridge, where a military cadet car was captured and the inmates killed, and at Vladmirsky the military school, which was bom barded and captured only after a brave defense. The military cadets correspond to the West Point cadets in America. The committee of public safety is enoeavonng to unite the opposition elements.

This leaves no place for oil or carbon to accumulate in back of ring and the grooves in the "piston can not be worn out of parallel. 3 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS obtain their tension through a patented hammering pro cess. This tension is permanent, be cause the compressed metal on the in side of the ring cannot lose its tension, no matter how hot the ring may get. AMERICAN RINGS, therefore, never have to be replaced on account of loss of compression. 4 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS exert a uniform pressure at all points of the ring. This keeps the cylinders round and the cost cf re boring them is eliminated. 5 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS, because of their perma nent tension and the powerful com pression they create increase the motto's power by 10 to 30 per cent (actual tests). 6 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS, being absolutely LEAK TIGHT, will save from 25 to 50 per cent gasoline, and 50 to 75 per cent oil (actual tests). 7 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS, being CONCENTRIC, fit the cylinder grooves evenly at all points and prevent the collection of carbonthis means no more carbon trouble. 8 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS, being LEAK-TIGHT, prevent oil from getting into the cyl inder heads this does away with smoking and avoids spark plug trou ble. 9 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS are guaranteed npt to wear the cylinder walls. Every ring is tested for hardness of metal. If the metal proves too hard or too soft the ring is discarded. The metal in every AMERICAN RING is sufficiently hard not to wear rapidly, but not hard enough to wear the cylinder wall. It is cheaper to have the piston ring wear than the cylinder wall, as it costs less to buy piston rings than to have cyl inders re-bored. - , 10 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS, having proved them selves the best quality rings ever made, were adopted as. exejusive standard equipment and are now being used and highly recommended by Pierce Arrow, Chalmers, White, Winton, Stearns, Lozier, Mercer, Kelly-Springfield, Stejreman, Wright-Martin, Aero marine, Thomas Morse, and many other Aeroplane and Motorboat manu dctur6i9 11 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TOL RINGS are made in' all sizes to fit all motors and are sold by leading garages, re pair shops and accessory dealers, with this guarantee full purchase price refunded if results are not entirely satisfactory. 12 AMERICAN HAMMERED PIS TON RINGS set of 12 for Ford Car, $7.50.
