to ?s??? an American again. He asked me how I liked trench mud, and
said it was great fun to chase the Germans through it.
From Mont St. Blol the French swarmed down the long hill and
took T.a Targette. Prom there the French Fj.read out. and in desperate
fighting ?seized the "labyrinth" and straightened their line to Roclin
C'urt. Here they moved their lines a little tn the east, and then their
s?-?i?thern anchor was thoroughly prepared for the big drive.
\RR\S. A MONUMENT OF RUN.
Arras Is the pivotal point cf the southern anchor, and it will always
remain a monument to German stupidity and insensate love of dc-truc?
tion for the sake of destroying. It is not, like many other p'a.-cs, com?
pletely wiped out. Banchgg, for example, is levelled to the ground?not
a wall left with one stone on top of another. A'ilain St. Nar.aire is a
mere shell. An occasional wall remains f( r half its original height,
while here and there a few broken roof beams Bn_g_ie their splintered
ends feebly in the north wind. Carency lies In the cellars.
These places were all captured by the C?ermana at the beginning of
the war, and were retaken by the French in fierce fighting from house
to house. Bloody struggles have raged in the.r streets, and despite the
cannons' work one can still see where the barricades she'tered now the
French, now the Germans, from ?the searching fire of the mitrailleuses.
Aira?, on the contrary, was never ii
German po??e?sion, and the Frend
rover fought with their feet on the sol

destruction Is so absolutely senseless.

and while I sat at the table a (ierman

The meal was serve.; m a h <h-rell

with stags' heads und other trophies of
the hunt. The officer opened the doot
and showed us the next room, where
the plaster littered the carpet. The
