August 12. 1916 News of the "Great Posh," as the Allied offensive is call ed, continues to be most encouraging. The Russians are still pushing the Austro-Ger mans back, and there seems every likelihood that they will continue to do so. France and Britain are slowly but surely compelling the'Germhuns' to fall back, and what ground they gain they seem to be able to hold with out much effort. Most sig nificant of all is the cheering news of Italy's splendid achievement which was contained in yesterday's cables. Reginald Archer,George ArOn all ft oats the enemy is cher, Jos.

News of the "Great Posh,"
as the Allied offensive is call
ed, continues to be most en-
couraging. The Russians are
still pushing the Austro-Ger
mans back, and there seems
every likelihood that they will
continue to do so. France
and Britain are slowly but
surely compelling the'Germ-
huns' to fall back, and
what ground they gain they
seem to be able to hold with
out much effort. Most sig
nificant of all is the cheering
news of Italy's splendid
achievement which was con-
tained in yesterday's cables. Reginald Archer,George Ar-
