TIGHTENING UP THE CIRCLE
Berlin, Nov. 28. Two important
announcements are made by Berlin
today in reporting continued progress
of the Teutonic invasion of Rou
mania the capture of Giurgiu on the
Danube and the taking of Curtea de
Arges on the Argechu river, eighty
miles northwest of the capital.
The capture of Giurgiu places Field
Marshal von Mackensen's army, ad
vancing from the southwest, only
thirty-seven miles from Bacharest
with a railroad running thence along
which the advance may be pressed.
In occupying Curtea de Arges
General von Falkenhayn's troops ap
patently have driven the Roumanians
from the line of the Topolog and may
even have broken near its northern
end the line of the Argechu, along
which the Roumanians were expected
to make a decisive stana. 1
Drawl Lines Closer.
Thus the semi-circle about Bucha
rest and the Roumanian armies is
gradually but steadily being drawn
closer, substantial successes are re
ported by Berlin in the new opera
tions tor tightening the grip.

been received by courier from Tap
xlaha, south of Chihuahua City, to
Terrazas, and thence by telegraph to
uarez, was to the cttect that benera!
"revino had exhausted his munition
supply and had been forced to retire.
Villa, the same report said, was in
possession of the city and Trevino
had been forced to abandon the ar

forces had gone over to Villa, ac
cording to the report.
