In the opinion of David it. Bimon, of

troubles of th farmer that he hardly will

"Fruit and vegetable have been
cheaper- the last U month than I have

Cadorna's Army Breaks
Second Line of Defense.
HOME, Aug. 3.
Heavy fighting In the Austro-Itallon
theatre of war has shifted from tho
l6ntd front to Tyrol and trentlno. The
War Offloa report severe hostilities In
the Alps with both Infantry and artillery
engaged on a big scale.
Alone tha Isonzo front the Austrian
lines have been weakened to such an ex
tent by 10 daya constant battering by the
Italians that there Is leas reslstanca than
at any other time since, hostilities broke
It Is reported on excellent authority
that thd Austrian ara making extensive
plans for the evacuation of Trieste In
order to prevent the capture of the army
concentrated in that part of the Itria
peninsula. The Austrian aro said to be
removing the machinery from the arms
faotorle at Trleeto and are also remov
ing supplies from tho military depot to
prevent the)r Oopturo by the Italians.
Tho tenacity of the defense of Gorlzta
hae proved a aurprlsa to military experts
who expected th fall of the Austrian
city long before this. The delay In the
capture of the stronghold Is explained by
the fact that Lieutenant General Cadorna
Is not disposed to saerinco his men rsck
lessly by hurling them against tho strong
defenses of the Austrian. He Is content
to adopt trench fighting such aa la In
progres in Franc and Belgium. Tho
result from such a method of warfare
would be slower, but the losses In human
life would be smaller.
On Carso plateau, In the Garltla region,
the Italian are In possession ot all the
first-line defenses of the Austrlans. A
dispatch from Udine states that the Aus
trlans In Gorilla crownland have retired
to tho valleys, which formB the second
line Of. defense on the Gorilla ctty
Montfalcon section. Tha Italian advanco
In that region amounts to J22 miles. On
the Carso plateau the Austrian lints have
bean strengthened with two army corps.
Trie recant losae on the leonzo front
hava bean enormous.
Continued from rage One
which he declared that Russia, as a
consequence of good crops, la prepared
to continue the war for soveral Veir.
"Germany must be beateh at all Costs,
else all Burops will tall under the Teu
tonic yoke," declared Pollvanoff. "With

fan." Four German aeroplanes flew over War
saw Bunday morning. One was brought
down by Russian artillery and the others
fled, tha War Office tat.

was stated that tna railroad had .teryeu

front would rtault only In less of lifu,
Considered by th Grand Duke Nicholas
to b unnecessary under th "present cir

Vistula army haa been extricated from
tha fiinttlnc drtvea ot the Austro-Osrman
armies wsra reiterated today. All tha

that whan the therrpomettr stood at Its

humidity read at 50 per cent, Instead bt
W per cent., as It had earlier In the day,
It meant it was les moist and sultry,
and therefore should have been less un.
comfortable. Such la not th case In the
matter of humidity.
Tha humidity percentage la & compar

whn It 1 very hot the air can hold tnor
