While the British were striking this deadly blow the French
opened a strong attack north of the Aisne taking strong defenses
and making prisoners of 175 in a gain of a quarter of a mile.
On the Italian front, the situation was unchanged, according to
German reports while in Palestine the British have advanced to
within five miles of Jerusalem and the fall of the city in imminent.
Last night the British cavalry were at Bourlon Wood, just
west of Cambrai. and the British advanced lines were within four

and with them went infantry and cavalry. The artillery showered
shells far ahead of them but not in an intense barrage. On reaching

first. Jor the fleeing Boches had carried word of the disaster that was
overtaking-themnd the morale was breaking.. Taking the second
defenses the advance continued steadily onward, capturing minpr
positions here and there, clearing out dugouts of occupants, but ever
moving forward. ; The whole line west of the Canat dn Nord and the
