Forts Made Useless
by .Germans' New
BERLIN, Kept. 4. Correspondence of the
Aaaoclated Press.) It la atlll too early to
baaa general predictions concerning war
in the future upon the engagenienta of
the present great European struggle. One
prediction, however, does seem fairly Jus
tified already. It la that the day of
fortresses baa passed. The new 42-centl-meter
tlfi Uncli) siege gun of the Gor
man forcca appears to have demonstrated
Its ability to demolish the strongest forti
fications ever made. Pictures of the
demolition at Liege bear striking testi
mony to the power of this new arm. A
single projectile demolished utttorly walls
of reinforced cement and steel, ripped
open steel towers and piled the masa
upon the fort'a defenders.
This new siege gun has been the sur
prise of the war. It ha been repeated ly
asserted that no nation has any military
secrets that are not In the possession of
all other important nations, but events
have proved not only that the existence
of this terrible weapon was not known
to foreign natlona, but that only a lim
ited number of high German army of

The news from Berlin corxluding
the position of the German forces has
a more confident ring. The admis
sion has been made that the German
army was short of ammunition, - but.
this shortage has been rectified and
supplied and reinforcements are
being sent forward without trouble.
A French officer who has Just returned
from the bftttle front. Is authority for the
statement that' the strain on both sides
of the line In France promises soon to
get beyond human endurance. He likens
the antagonistats to two exhausted pugil
ists and says that soon they will be un
able to inflict further punishment on
each other. If this situation develops,
tho only possible way for the allies to
prevent a weary rid disheartening winter
campaign, It IS argued here, would be a
successful assault on the German com
munications. Buch an assault, it Is ad
mitted, will not be an easy matter.
Allies Hope to Break Line.
Tha Belgian army. In harrying the In
vader, probably prevents the dispatch' of
any great part of the German army now
occupying Belgium to ' reinforce their
countrymen In France, but the Belgian
forces are not strong enough seriously to
Interfere with communications, while the
allies must break aome part of the line
or turn the German right before they
can effectively threaten the communica
tion of the Invader. ..
Fetrograd reports that General Ren
nenkampf has definitely arrested the
German advance. This movement haes been
assisted by river excursion boats changed

The Austrlans, In a perelstett effort to
save the remnants of their army and re
establish It as a fighting force, have, ac
cording to reports from Vienna, fortified
their extended new defensive front from
Dohodyei, southwest of Imberg, to
Cracow, with the center on I'rxtimysl. An
attack on tho Triemys) fortress Is ex
pected at once from the Russians under
command of Oenersls Ttusiky and Brus
slloff. One report which reaches London
from Gallcla declares that the Austrian
cavalry has been entirely wiped out. This
may account for tho fortification of the
Austrian line instead of Its continued re
treat toward Cracow.
From many points in the dual monarchy
come disquieting reports. Pola, the naval
baae on tho Adriatic, Is said to be In
revolt, while the people of Vienna, re
fusing longer to have their attention di
verted towards the west, are demanding
news of the situation in Gollila, from
which district hordes of refugee Poles
and wounded Austrian soldiers are pour

British Dread Casnalty List.
The most cruel aspect, from the British
standpoint, of the terrible battle now rag
ing In the western area of tha war Is the
dreadful apprehension with which the
British public awaits the publication of
the casualty list or the last week's fight
ing. Many qf Great Britain s most fa
moua regiments are reported to have been
mowed down in the terrific assault on the
heights held by the Germans above the
River Alsne. Tha German public may
also expect a shock In thla regard, for
the battlefields already swept over, glv

.. at the. Front.
PARIS, Sept. 1.-The principal sources
of really graphic information of opera
tions at the front are, for the moment,
accounts given by returning wounded and
prisoners and by private letters.
They all go to show that the" worst
predictions as to the bloody character of
the war are being1 realized.
The ravages In the German ranks are
due In part. It Is declared, ta furious
charges with the bayonet, but mostly to
the "j-mtllimeter guns.
A German of fleer. Interviewed on his
way to on of the Interior military pr's
ons, declared "The French cannon isn't
a war cannon. It's a butchery cannon."
One of the latest battles at Ramblllers
In the Vosges was fought on the edge
of a forest between two regiments of In
fantry supported by artillery, and so
fierce became the fire on both sides that
the two regiments were obliged to retire
at the same time, leaving the field to
grape and caniHter.
From the Sergeant Aviator Decaen It
la teamed thnt six German flying ma
chines sucoumbed to musketry fire at th
Luxemburg frontier. "We are in France
for Uie moment," he writes, "and the
Germans are retiring, burning Belgian
villages as. they pass. GasUnger, on a
Belgian aeroplane, came back from the
frontier wltji a-ball In his back; fortu-'
nately the German bullets don't seem to
do much damage; this one was stopped
by a, loaf of bread. Our squadron's going

Sswelmra ef Letter.
The following letter from a brigadier of
dragoons Is a specimen of a certain clans
of letters that have begun to arrive in
"My Pear Parents: Tf you receive this
letter It will be because I have been
killed, but don't weep for me, since my
fate will have been the noblest a French
man can dream of to die for his country
on the eve of victory. We shall be the
victors becauae we have right and confi
dence on our side. I shall have done my
duty to the end and I hope my death will
have been useful to my country. My last
thoughts will be for you."
With this letter there came another
from the cure of a little Belgian village
Riving the details of the death of the
writer of the above. It was In a Belgian
lorest that a party of dragoons were sur
prised by an ambush and all shot down
excepting three and on these three the
Prussians rushed to complete their work.
The brigadier, already wounded In the
leg, managed to master his pain ant
charged alone, and tha cure adds that
there was other than French blood shed
upon the field.
"His body Is not lost," the cure con
tinues. "It reposes In the little cemetery
of our village, where you will come to
visit his tomb after the war."
A letter from a wounded soldier to his
wife in Paris reads:
"We were in the first rank with our
lieutenant. Jean Kbrard, at the head.
He received six bullets. First wounded
In the thigh, ha got up again, collected
his men and went on ahead. Another ba!l
! struck him In the shoulder and four
others were stopped by his knapsack. He
found another later in his belt. 'Precious

I wounds dressed on returning to the place

conduct of our officers."

The arrows, which are of pressed steel,

The arrows seem to have caused more
