To tho east of Bethune we have cap- tured, in collaboration with the British Army, the village of Gwenchy-ies-la Bassee, which had been lost. in the region of Arras a thick fog has been the means cf making both the enemy and ourselves relax our activity. To the east of Amiens, on the Aisne, and in the Champagne there were artillery duels. In the region of Perthus-les-Hurlus we j have captured, after a lively carror- ade and two assaults, the lost positions of the line partially conquered on the 21st. The average gain is one of 800 metres. In the. last trench taken we captured a machine gun section, men and material, and a violent counter-attack wns re pulsed. We have also progressed to the north- east of Beausejour, where the e?nir.y again counter-attacked without succc I-J, A sensible advance has been made by our troops in the Bois-de-la-Gruric along a front of trenches extending about 400 metres, and the forward movement extencs to as far as 250 metres. We have blown up by mines, German lines, and occupied the excavation made by the explosion. The fighting continues around Boureilles. The important results reatised yester- day morning do not appear to have been entirely maintained. No noteworthy incident has occurred from the heights of the Meuse to Up\3J' A I sa". R ussian.
