Paeis, August 26

While fierce fighting was going on at Oharleroi, Namur was being sub jeefced to a furious bombardment, which was so well regulated that) tbe first Jew shots silenced the Marchove* lette fort and the north east Maizeret fort. The Andvy fort was almost out of action. The forts on the north and the forts Dave and Saint Heubert continue their resistance*

Despite tbe barbed entanglements through which was passed an electric current of 150 volts, tbe Germans' entered Namur without encountering much resistance, By 8 o'clock on Sunday evening 3000 Belgians had evacuated the town in order to remove the rolling stock and motorcars.

Tbe German cavalry penetrated Turcoing, in the Roubaix. district, which was only defended by Territorials, This waa possibly the advance guard of a large force destined for a turning movement against the French left at Lille.

The cavalry yesterday raided the French territory towards Conde. The French artillery intercepted them and practically annihilated them near Bouchain.

Two German aeroplanes flew over Gambrai- One was brought down and two aviators killed.
