SIXTH DAY OF ARTILLERY DUEL
LONDON, Sept. 1. Germany's
plan for driving three wedges Into
the Russian defensive lines is being
carried forward, hut not with the

Poland. Klga is almost isolated and
unless the Russians soon throw
heavy forces against Von Hlndea
Lurg's exposed flank this port must
fall Into the hands of the Invaders.
Although this northerly attack seems
to have been checked for the mo
ment, the Russian have been unable
to deve'op a counter offensive In
that region comparable with their
activities In east Gallcia, where, on
the river Strlpa, they have not only
turned at bay, but have inflicted
large losses on their opponents.
For a period of five or six days on the
western front a rain of shells from
French guns has been poured on the
German trenches. The object of this un
usual artillery attack has not bean dls-
closed, but It Is not believed her that so
much precious ammunition would be used
merely to damage ths German works
without some sort of concerted effort to
occupy the shattered trenches.
