and the Oise and that cavalry engagements continue in the
region of La Bassce, Estaires and Hasebrouck.
Special attention is directed to Ostend. There have
assembled the greater part of the Belgian army and about
two thirds of the British forces that escaped from Ant
werp. It is believed that Germany is pushing forward to
attack the city with the hope of capturing and using the
port in her operations against Elngland.
A hitter struggle to keep the Germans from the coast
is inevitable. To-day's reports indicate that the German
cavalry advance is less than thirty miles distant from
The strength of the allies at Ostend is not known. It
is possible that British reinforcements which were unable
to reach Antwerp in time to help iu the defense of that
city are now in Ostend.
Still less is known of the situation in the Eastern thea
tre of war. Petrograd is silent on recent developments.
The Russian War Office explains this silence on the
ground of strategy. Vienna claims that the Russian at
tack 011 Przemysl, the strong fortress in Austrian Galicia,
has failed. Berlin asserts that the Russian advance on the
East Prussian frontier has been checked while the Ger
mans are steadily working eastward in Russian Poland.

Paris, Oct. 12, 9.40 A. M.—The
progress of the campaign in the north
of France and the fall of Antwerp were
forgotten for a moment to-day by the
people of Paris who spent their time
discussing the throwing of bombs on
the capital from German aeroplanes, as
a result of which three persons were
killed yesterday and fourteen wound
ed. At the same time officials adopted
measures looking to the prevention of
similar acts in the future.
The first thing done was the ap
pointment of General Hirschauer tc

Creation of Aerial Squadrons
The creation of aerial squadrons sta
t tioned at cardinal points to be always
i ready to dash after the air craft of
the enemy as soon as they shall be
seen approaching the city, the arming
I of fast monoplanes with quick-firing
; guns and the telephoning of warnings
bv residents of the capital to the
! French Aero club, which is now under
! military control, were among the sug
gestions discussed. Finally, M. Cochin

i the immediate adoption of efficacious
| measures with the view of reassuring
' the people.
The news that one of the German
bombs yesterday struck the Cathedral
of Notre Dame hag been communicat

I message: "Providence has pjevented
an outrage whieh would have shocked

Military critics, commenting to-day

j Apremont region, declare it is worthy
of note that Apremont, to the east of
j Mihiel. is the route the enemy would
take if they sought to withdraw from
St. Mihiel in the direction of Lor

i means much to them, it is declared.
Paris. Oct. 12. 7.20 A. M.—The
bomb which fell on the Cathedral of
Notre Dame was filled with an in
flammable substance, as a joist on the
roof caught fire quickly. 'The flames
were extinguished, however.
