ing It Lord Kitchener said:
"During the month of December the

point.', but the tide of battle ebbed and
flowed with varying aucress.
"in srlfc of the unfavorable weather,

'"Notwithstanding the transfer of Ger
man troopa to the. eastern theater of the
war, they left sufficient strength to hold
their trenches tn the west.
"German aspirations in Poland have
suffered a severe check, and It Is evident
that they realize the infinite difficulty of
winter operations in '.Russia. ,
"One of the brightest spots in the mili
tary operations during December has
been the extraordinary achievements of
the gallont Servian army.
