RUSSIANS 10 MILES FROM
KOLOMEA; PFLANZER'S ARMY
COMPLETELY CUT OFF BY SLAVS
PETn.oan.AD, Juno 27. "With the elim
ination of General Pflanzor's army In
Bukowlna tho attention of General Brusl
loff's forces In this section Is now directed
upon Kolome'n, the key to the defense of
Lemberg on the squth. The occupation of
Klm'polung and Ifuty has opened the way
to Kolomen, and already a result of this
last recorded victory of the Ilusslnns Is
becoming evident In the forward movement
of General Letchltzky on tho road from
Snlatyn to Kolomea to a point 10 miles
from tho latter town.
It Is evident from tho report of prisoners
and booty taken that the Austrlans de
fended Klmpolung with considerable forces.
They were attacked by Russian troops
which had covered the 30 miles from
Gurahumora In two days and were rushed
Into tho fight with scarcely an hour's rest.
According to Russian military authorities.
their assault added the last touch needed
to complete the demoralization of General
Pflanzcr's forces, which now arc entirely
cut off from communication with General
Count von Bothmer's nrmy group on the
Strypa Itlvcr to tho north.
General von Bothmer's position Is re
garded as precarious 'as a result of this
operation. Ills right flank has been com
pletely uncovered and military critics be
lieve he will without doubt be forced to
fall back along his whole line before Tar-nopol.

it Is believed the sudden opining of an intense artillery flri or. the
Germans from La Bassec to the River Sommo heralds an infantry
assault by the British, who have recently made readjustments along
their line, which extends from Dixmudc, on the north, to Frisc, on
strongly against Thlnumont works, which
was taken by tho Germans last week.
Some progress has been mnde there, but
tho attacks are still In progress.
Tho Germans still maintain their foothold
In tho vlllngo of Fleury, but their nttempts
to advance against the French trenches In
front of Souvllle nnd Belleville were lm
mediately halted by the concentrated fire of
tho French guns. Severo losses were Inflicted.
Heavy artillery firing by both sides Is In
progress nil along tho Verdun front.
At the northern end of the line, from a
point south of Artols to Flanders, the Urlt
Ish nnd French guns nro pounding the Gcr
mnn positions. At somo points the bom
bardment has been incessant for 72 hours.
German trenches have crumbled before the
salvos and at n dozen points tho Anglo
French forces were nblo to advance past
tho first German line with slight losses.

"Unlike any olher paper1
The Miracle Farm Paper
The biggest advertising phenomenon agoing is in Philadelphia.
Think: - .
The Farm Journal is crowded with advertising each month, yet
it never had solicitors. Farm Journal' space sells on sheer merit
strictly on the cold-blooded basis of results produced.
It is the biggest national farm paper over a million circulation.
It is the real farm-family magazine more women's stuff than
any other farm paper. v
It sells every subscription oh approval money back if wanted,
without argument or sour looks. .. '
It guarantees every ad being the originator (bick in 1880)' of
confidence-creating the granddaddy of "Truth in Advertising."
Its subscriptions are paid in advance for surprisingly long terms
5 years being common, with 10, 15 and 20-year periods not uncommon.
It attracts subscribers through "its loving friends" and through
printer's ink, thus assuring a select, hand-picked circulation.
It covers the country with bigger volume and lower cp$t pef
thousand than sectional papers. . rT
t No wonder other publishers consider The Farm Journa as the
miracle paper, Count the 10,000 Sinjr.hs pn the subscription list,
find how many folks of youhname read the papertheri go-'hprrje
and. put The Farm Journal onyour. listill stay up near, the tpp,
