P_TBoan_D, January IS
Auatro German losses in reoent Russian advanoe on tbe southern front were nearly 200,000. The offensive though it has been temporar ily suspended hampers and balks Germans. The latter are tied down and are aware that tho Russians are able to strike again with even greater effect when tho moment is opportune. A singular feature of the flighting in the Caernowitz region is tbat tbe German regiments fell into a panic and began to run, the Austrian artillery revers ing the process to which the Germans often resorted to earlier in tho war directed their fire upon the spike helmet fugitives, but the Germans feared the Russians more than artillery and the attempt failed to stop tho rout.
