Two defeats of the Germans between the Canal of La Bassee and Anas are reco (led, more than 200 dead being lound after the fighting. The writer expresses the belief that the Germans lost in killed und wounded at least thiee companies. A number of officers were among, the dead. "Ihe French losses were slight," he adds, "we had seven killed and six wounded." Over 5.000 Caaualtie*. The fighting at La Creute is described as particularly severe, but insignificant as regardsconscqueriCes. The Germans began the actions with an intense artillery fire. 'I hey hurled hand grenades at a portion of the first line trenches, causing serious loss'to the allies' lines. In this assault the Germans also met with heavy losses—4,000 killed and wounded. The allies' loss numbered 1,000 killed and wounded. In the region of Peir'ies, Mesnil if) I Maatige* the Germans attacked four points simultaneously, but he allies remained masters of their positions. Violent engagements occurred in the Argonne on January 27, 29 and 30, the allies' left giving way slightly, but the centre holding firm, although severely tried. Later, the allies counter-attacked six times, the last attack resulting in progress. The German losses were serious. Daring aerir! expeditions over the enemy's lines, during the night as well as in the day are noted. An audacious attack on Ostend.in which three German officers were killed, is also recorded.

CELLAR. DWELLERS OF R.HEIMS SUBJECTED TO BOMBARDMENT J Hut the Bombs Were Badly Made and the Dauiaee Was Slight and Casualties Few. Special Cable to Ihe Mail and Empiie. J Paris, Feb. 9.—German gunners have begun a fresh bombardment of Rheiins without doing very much injury to ihe cellar dwellers. The only casualties that have been reported iverp those of a mother and her twelve-year-old boy. On Saturday bombs were dropped into the city, but the inhabitants were very much interested to note that the devastation wrought b) these bombs was much inferior to that cflusec by the preceding ones. From this they came 10 the conclusion that the bombs were badly made.

GOVERNMENT PRESS Suwalki, Poland : —The German forces under Field Marshal Von llinderbeig inflicted such a striking defeat on the Russians opposed to them in the recent battles in the MhZUrian Lake region that the Russian lenmants are a negligible quantity in the operations) now in progress. The Russians killed and wounded in the four days fighting aie esI timated over 30.000 men. Over] 60.000 out of a total of 150.000 engaged are prisoners in Gentian hands. General Sievers commander of the Russians who composed the roth army corps by skillful use of ihe railroads at hi* disposal and sacrifice at limes of entire batta lions in order to bring off a few guns succeeded in saving the greater part of his artillery.

As during the preceding period.all
ihe positions at La ll.issee tempo
rarily lost by the English and
French were regained after sharp
fighting on Januai\ 29-30.
Two defeats of the Germans be-
tween the Canal of La Bassee and
Anas are reco (led, more than 200
dead being lound after the fighting.
The writer expresses the belief
that the Germans lost in killed
und wounded at least thiee com-
panies. A number of officers were
among, the dead.
"Ihe French losses were slight,"
he adds, "we had seven killed and
six wounded."
Over 5.000 Caaualtie*.
The fighting at La Creute is de-
scribed as particularly severe, but
insignificant as regardsconscqueri-
Ces. The Germans began the
actions with an intense artillery
fire. 'I hey hurled hand grenades at
a portion of the first line trenches,
causing serious loss'to the allies'
lines. In this assault the Germans
also met with heavy losses4,000
killed and wounded. The allies'
loss numbered 1,000 killed and
wounded.
In the region of Peir'ies, Mesnil
if) I Maatige* the Germans attack-
ed four points simultaneously, but
he allies remained masters of
their positions.
Violent engagements occurred
in the Argonne on January 27, 29
and 30, the allies' left giving way
slightly, but the centre holding
firm, although severely tried.Later,
the allies counter-attacked six
times, the last attack resulting in
progress. The German losses were
serious.
Daring aerir! expeditions over
the enemy's lines, during the night
as well as in the day are noted.
An audacious attack on Ostend.in
which three German officers were
killed, is also recorded.
Roger Gsell, a seven's^n-year-
old volunteer, wcunded bv ah rap.

turv the brave deeds of Via la and

have begun a fresh bombardment
of Rheiins without doing very
much injury to ihe cellar dwellers.
The only casualties that have been
reported iverp those of a mother
and her twelve-year-old boy. On
Saturday bombs were dropped in-
to the city, but the inhabitants
were very much interested to note
that the devastation wrought b)
these bombs was much inferior to
that cflusec by the preceding ones.
From this they came 10 the con-
clusion that the bombs were badly

Suwalki, Poland : The German
forces under Field Marshal Von
llinderbeig inflicted such a strik-
ing defeat on the Russians op-
posed to them in the recent battles
in the MhZUrian Lake region that
the Russian lenmants are a negli-
gible quantity in the operations)
now in progress.
The Russians killed and wound-
ed in the four days fighting aie es- I
timated over 30.000 men. Over]
60.000 out of a total of 150.000
engaged are prisoners in Gentian
hands.
General Sievers commander of
the Russians who composed the
roth army corps by skillful use of
ihe railroads at hi* disposal and
sacrifice at limes of entire batta
lions in order to bring off a few
guns succeeded in saving the
greater part of his artillery.
On the streets here on last Satur-
day Could be heard the sound of
artillery fiom the swampy region
to the soiith'a-t wheie isolated
Russian divisions, peihaps ten
thousand strong, has been com
pletely surrounded but were still
iffering-resistance. Sevtral thou-
sand more Russians pwbahly re
mained in scattered bands or wan-
dering as stragglers within
the regions which the Germans had
closed around Ihe woods ct swamps
between 9uwalki Augustowa and
the German fionticr.

ted Press motoring along the line
of the Russian retreat off roads
deep with snow and through deso-
late swamps of the region gained
ihe impression that it was com-
plete and in demoralization.
Abandoned guns, wrecked and
overturned wagons, sledges and
equipment had been thrown away
by the fl-eing soldiers. Dead hmses
and an occasional fallen soldier
were everywhere along the road-
side.
The Russians, in retreating,
seemed only to have time enough
to burn houses on the German side
of the frontier and destroy the
live-stock which they were unable
to dnve away and they did this so
thoroughly that in a seventeen
mile ride from Lyck to the frontier
village of Prostken, only one
house with a mof was seen. I he
Russian villages beyond have not
been touched.
The two wings of the German
army closed on East Suwalki-Au-
gustow only a few hours too late
to catch the entire Russian army.
M .. of the Units of the Russians
wi re caught however. The natu-
ral defense of swamps aided the
Russians retreat. This defeat of
the Russians northern army may
be compared to a .gigantic rabbit
drive in which men weie tl.cprev.
The lutlle to the South was
fought in a snow storm. 1 he ad-
vancing German! could scarcely
see when they came to grips with
the Russians and they found their
rifles so covered with snow and ice
that they could not fire them and
weie left only with bayonet*, but
remained al the task.

ments declare that 40.000 more
