WARSAWS FATE IN THE BALANCE I
WARSAW'S FATE IN THE BALANCE. I Germans Claim to be Investing Ivangorod Fortress. Russians Clear Right Bank I Russians Ctcar Right Bank of River Bug. I I Villages Repeatedly Change Hands. The fate of Warsaw is estill in the bal- ance. Fighting of the fiercest character is raging all akreg the salient formed by the Ivattle fronts on t h ree &ides of the city. Petrograd reports that the enemy have been thrown hack on the Narew to the north and in the direction of Lubiin to the south, but Berlin claims that the Gorman armies have made marked pro- gress. The counter-attacks of the Russians on the Narew are declared to have ceased, but it is obvious that the fortres&es of Pultusk aud >i ovo-Georglt"wsk have yet to be captured or encompassed, and the offi- cial communique from Petrugrad. received this morning, speaks of desperate engage- mentson the Narew front. Immediately in front of Warsaw the Russians, it is MSN- ted h" Berlin, have been pressed back on the lino Blonie-Nadarxiyn-Gora Kalwaria: this is about: 30 miles in extent at an average distance of 18 miles west ol wat- saw. This illformation tallies with the report received to-day from Petrograd. To the south, it is claimed that the im- portant fortress of ivangorod, on the i Vistula, is BOW "closely invested. To the south-east, near the all-important railway, the position ia gtill obscure, but both communiques mention ffcejowiee, a, village only U miles from the railway. Petrograd states that hereabouts the Germans were thrown baek "in some sectors" with severe losses: Berlin, whilst admitting tllat th troops are still south ot the village, maintains that on a wide sector hostile have been stormed. 4of this railway line would render the Warsaw position unten- able. it may be taken for granted that Berlin telegrams will seize tho earliest opportunity to announce, and even to an- ticipa'o. any success in t.his region. Whilst Petrograd unofficial messages rpfer frankly to the position as serious, there ,i« a curiou? note of confidence still maintained. The l*torning Post" cor- respondent says that. whilst there are still no indications of the Grand Duke's intentions, everything points to the enemy being hld up on one front and smashed on the other. But it is impossible to say on which- Conifdence is felt regarding the issue, and all efforts are IvuDg united to ensure that nothing shall be wanted by the armies in order to win a decisive vic- tory over the German*. WHAT PETROGRAD SAYS. Desperate Character of Vistula Battle. PETROGRAD, Thursday. (received to-day.)

On the Narew Front. On the Narew front, near the Rozan bridgehead, there were desperate engage- ments. Near the villages of Mrotchka and Kavka, in the course of a counter- attack, Cossacks fell upon aud sabred a German company. Before Warsaw, On the left of the Vistula our troope occupy the front Blonie (fifteen miles west of Warsaw), Nndarxyn (fourteen miles south-west or Warsaw), and the outlying defences of Ivangorod. i The-battle between the Yitula. and the Bug yesterday again assumed a very desperate character. The enemy is con- cent-rating his principal efforts in the I direction of Baljitza, Travniki, Voysla- i vitze. and Groubechoff. Several villages on the heights are changing hands again and again.

IMOTOR CARS DESTROY ENTANGLEMENTS
MOTOR CARS DESTROY ENTANGLEMENTS Myfiiene, July 10.—A c.urious little apparatus has been used by the Turco- German snipers ori the GaUipoli Penin- sula to render their shots noiseless. OUT ruon call it il"silen(Tr." It is a very simple device. It consists of two small brass tubes one within the other and i attachable to the muzzle of "the rifle. The space between the tubes is filled wit a ring of steel springs. At the momen-t of discharge the air expelled from the rifJe forces the springs outwards, and in so doing wastes its impact, an-i loses its sound. On our side we can congratulate our- eeh-es nn a performance of the armoured motor-Citrs we are using against the enemy's lines around Krithia. The cap- ture of several Turkish Frenches recently was due to the help of these cars.
