"Terrible havoc has been caused in our
line by shells from a-battery of eleven
guns posted In a forest near the 'Belglau
"It seemed Impossible to silence their
fire until the Ninth Lancer mad their
attempt riding straight at the guns after
debouching into the open and charging
under a hall of inellnlte and lyddite.
"I , have not been able to get reliable
figures as to the distance they rode,
but they reached their goal. They
reached the guns, killed the gunner and
put Jhe guns out of action- Then, like
their prototypes of Ealakolava, they rede

ber from the attack of other German
batteries, posted at vantage points around

the Germans gradually circled, drawing
the noose closer and . closer.
"The British decided to cut their way
through the .cordon. Bo the mn went at
It, yelling and shouting, and got through,
although th ' German v artillery' ; mowed
them .down frightfully.
'"Th German machine guns hav been
tremendously effective In all engagements
thus far. Men' who saw the' South

War Summary
The absence of official an
nouncements from the capitals of
the belligerents is the surest in
dication that the fighting In the
eart. and west continued without
decisive rettults.:
Such news dlxpatchea as es
caped the censors tend to confirm
earlier official claims and admis
sions. The Germans are punning
their right wing nearer Tarts,
while their center and left appear
to be held by the French. Russia
is pressing forward in the Aus
trian province of Galicla, after
having taken the strongly forti
fied capital, Lemberg. The Ger
mans are admittedly victorious tn
east Prussia.
. The J panose are said to have
occupied seven Islands near Ktao
Chow and to have landed addi
tional troops within marching
distance of that German strong
hold In the face of protests by
King Nicholas of Montenegro

The governor and other Ger
man officials of Samoa have been
made prisoners by the British
and sent to the FIJI Islands.
The government ot France is
now established at Bordeaux- The
foreign embassies and legations,
with the exception of those ot the
