One of two things is happen- ing: the German bolt is shot and the Russians are beginning to turn, or else another great shuf- fling of forces Is going on behind the German lines.

Their left must rest upon Rina and the sea; but that part of their pro- gramme has been put back by the Russian successes on both land and sea. At present the northern sec- tion of the general advance is standing at attention. Break Russian Line Berlin, via London, Aug. The Russian advanced positions to the southwest of the fortress of Brest-Litovsk, were broken through on Tuesday by the Ger- mans, according to an official an- nouncement given out today by the army headquarters staff.
