ALLIES SCORE SLIGHT GAIN IN FIERCE FLANDERS FIGHT Germans Bombard Berry-au-Bac In New Offenslvo on Aisne. PARIS, Jan. 23. Tho fighting In 'tho new battle of Flanders has become so fierce that a gain of even a few yards by the allied forces Is regarded as Important. An ofllclal communique Issued by tho French War Oftlce this afternoon emphasizes the fact that a gain of 100 yards has been mado In the region of Lombaertzyde. In an attempt to establish their posi tions firmly on the south bank of tho Alsne, the Germans have opened an of fenslvo, with violent artillery fire, against the town of Berry-au-Bac. A. German attack to tho northeast of Beausejour, west of the Argonne, has been repulsed and the ofllclal statement reiterates Its claim that the Germans have been completely checked at Foun tain Madame In the Argonne.

Sanguinary encounters between the Cos sack advance ot the great Russian army now menacing the German fortress of Thorn and Oerman forces southeast of Klkol were reported In dispatches from the front today. Under a murderous Are from a German Infantry regiment, the cavalry was forced to retire, it Is admitted here. The Ger mans wheeled light artillery Into position to support -tffe riflemen. The Cossacks were permitted to advance to within a short distance from the German Intrenrh ments. Then a galling rifle and gun nro was poured Into their ranks. The outposts having clashed, retrograd confidently awaits news of the beginning of one of the greatest battles fought In Northern Poland since the beginning of tho war. Earlier in the week the Russians were sweeping toward the Prus slan frontier without meeting any serious resistance. The Germans will make a stand near Klkol, about 23 miles south east of Thorn, it is now believed, ind a general engagement all along the tf-mlle battle line will begin there. Russian scputs today reported that the army of General Francois, moving from the Mlawa region to attack the rear of the Russian army moving on Thorn, is making slow progress. Heavy reinforce ments, however, are coming to Francois' aid, and It Is thought possible In Is await ing the arrival of these fresh troops be fore moving his main bodies.

Allow Them to Live Hon estly, in Inspiring Sermon, on "Let Your Light Shine" Church members who pretend to be Christians and llvo lives that prove them to bo hypocrites and who cause the church to be criticised by those outside It, got "theirs" from "Billy" Sunday at tho tabernacle this afternoon. Ho was preaching on""tho themo "Let Your Light Shine" beforo an audienco that filled tho Beats and standing-room of tho big structure. Prominent among thoso pres ent were delegations of visiting clergy men and officials of churches in six Presbyteries In and around Philadelphia. In his attack on "sham" Christians "Billy" Bpared no ono. Tho failure of Church members to provo themselves t6 bo real Christians ho blamed for the complaints -heard agalnst-itho churches today. Because some Christians do not llvo up to their profession they do tho churches more harm than those outside could possibly do, ho said, "If people are simply church members they probably will not shine In al -places, , but true Christians- -will," he shouted. "It Is becauso of the failure df Christians to do their duty that the church Is backed into a corner by -the 'low-browed, hog-jowlcd, strength-sapping, whisky-soaked politicians." "BE SQUARE IN BUSINESS." At the same tlmo Sunday urged the church members In business to play square with their employes and the em ployes to play square with their em ployers. While he made an earnest ap peal for honest pay, he also mads aa earnest an .appeal for honest work. "The merchant who claims to be Christian and does not pay his employes a living wnga Is a hypocrite, and his light will not shine, at all for Christ. And tho man who claims to be a Christian and robs his employer by doing as little work as he can and getting as much money ns he can force from tho boss is every bit as much of a hypocrite." That was the way "Billy" Sunday weighed the problem between tho employer and the employe. "What about you merchants who keep your clerks working long hours over counters? If you had only your chances of going to heaven dependent on tho tes timony of those clerks, would you go? I don't believe ihere ure many girls who are working for 8 per week, a dollar per day, wearing the clothes thoy are wear ing, paying the room rent they nro pay ing, and doing it all on the small salary. I don't believe they oan do It and live square. If they nro driven to make a little money on the side to exist, who's to blame? Who has driven them to do it?" The evangelist urged his hearers- men and women who profess to be fol lowers ot the Lord Jesus Christ to stand bravely before the world and let It know that they are Christians and to live suah lives that all those who see them will want to be like them. "Don't be a coward. I hate a sneaking coward," Sunday sneered. "Why any per son should be ashamed to stand up and let the world know that he Is a Christian I have never been able to understand. Why a man or a woman la ashamed of the fact that they are living decent lives I can't understand. "There's too many lobsters who refuse to allow It to be known where they stand. That's why It Is so bard to koep the devil down. If they were members ot the Elks they would allow It be known. If they were members of the K. of P. they'd al low It be known. If they were Masons or Odd Fellows tliey'a allow It be known. If they were Republicans or Democrats they'd allow it to be known.
