THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The "British on lie Ciimbrai front have withdrawn from the Bourlon wood salient, to a safer and stronger position slightly to tie rear. The withdrawr.1 has been retried out with- out a loss, and the Germans in their attack of yesterday, shelled and charge-! trenches which they eventual- ly found, empty. _ On the Italian front I he'latest ef- fort of the Teutons has been brought to a halt in its early stages. The Italians have thus far repulsed all at- tacks. A ten-day armistice along the Rus- sian front has been agreed lo by the leaders ot the Russian and German armies.
