("French attacks directed for 10
days against our positions south and

why General Sarrill reports the cap

road station at Doiran and the village

abandoned by the enemy. Our troops
buried 50 French dead on this sector.
"On the right bank of the Vardar,
we captured a hostile detachment near
Nayadagn and took one machine gun,

Says She Was Dragged from

and Beaten
San Francisco, Aug. 24. Following a
talc of an abduction from a jitney bus
by threo well dressed men, and deten
tion in a room for more than 30 hours,
was told by Angelica Barnes. The po
lice are searching today for the jitney
driver to learn why he allowed the
men to drag the woman from his car.
Miss Barnes, who made frantic ap
peals over a telephone Tuesday, was
found by detectives in a Market street
hotel. the told of attending a motion
picture show Sunday night, of hiring
a jitney to take her along Market street
for fresh air, and of three men entering
the jitney. Tho men, she says, dragged
her from the car and put her in a room
on Kddy street, robbing her of $200 and
beating her senseless.
Monday afternoon the men left her a
moment and she tried to telephone for
help, but the men, returning, took the
receiver from her and knocked her
down. Tuesday, she says, she escaped.

Lovelace Brothers Self Con
fessed Murderers, Play
Happily in Jail Yard
Twin Falls, Idaho, Aug. 24. Facing
murder charges, Harold and Lynn Love
lacer aged 12 and 11 years, played hap
pily about the juvenile ward of the
county jail today. ' They apparently hail
no thought whatever of the killing ol
F. T. Hamill, to which they have con
fessed. Since their arrival in prison the boys
have been bathed and clothed iu ne.l
outfits. They have rigged up a method
of playing "one ole cat" with the jail
wall as a backstop. It is evident that
they are not doing any worrying aboui
their predicament, they have no horrol
of the Hamill killing and no concern
about the whereabouts of their mother
and stepfather. Every effort to locatt
the parents has resulted in failure.
The date for the Lovelace prelimin
ary hearing hns not been sot. It will
be held up until the district attorney
decides whether he shall go ahead and
prosecute the boys on a straight murdet
charge. Lynn, the younger, is alleged
to have actually fired the shot which
killed Hamill after the latter surprised
the boys robbing his house. Harold is
held as an accomplice.
Railroad Troubles
Make Market Cautious
New York, Aug. 24. The New York
Evening Sun financial review today
irregular price tendencies marked the
greater pnrt of today's session with
movements at times distinctly in favor
of lower levels, without, however, the
accompaniment of active selling or any
particular change in sentiment regard
ing the prospects of further improve
ment in market values. The street was
conservatively bullish for the immed
iate future but the disposition of trad
ers and commission house customers was
to proceed with greater caution pending
the outcome of the railroad labor con
troversy and apparently to await de
velopments affecting a prominent muni
tion manufacturing company which
rumors suggested was having financial
To a great extent, especially in the
afternoon dealings, speculative interest
turned from the steel stocks to the cop
per issues in which price improvements
were recorded, especially in Inspiration
which sold to a new high, and Tennes

Today 'a general market had for the
first time in. a week or more a two
sided appearance. Traders who took
profits on the advance were anxious to
bring about reactions in order to estab
