On the right bank of tho Meuso, in
the course of a detached attack on St.
Fine Chapel, French forces captured 30
German prisoners. During the last 10
days in this section, 800 enpitves have
been taken. ,

Aviator Shy 60 Miles.
Paris, July 24. A French aviator,
Antoine Mnrchnl, who started from
Nancy in an aeroplane, for Russia, via
Berlin, failed in his aerial race by a
bare 00 miles, according to word here
today. He was captured by the (Ser
mons nt Cholm, in Poland, after having
dropped proclamations on Berlin.
Nancy lies on the French Alsnce-Lor-raine
frontier. Cholm is in Russian Po
land, 50 miles north of the Austrian
frontier. Mnrclial must have flown
nearly 1,200 miles to have covered the
distance between these two points, in
cluding Berlin in between. This, in it
self, is n remarkable exploit, but even
more astonishing was his feat of fly
ing over Berlin, dropping proclamations
on the city, and making good his escape.
Hud Mnrchnl been able to fly 50 miles
farther beyond Holm he would have
lauded within the Russian lines.
