The "Archies" hnd been taken by

if the unwelcome visitor would reach
his lines. But suddenly the "Archies"
ceased firing, and lt wus then we saw
n British plane pursuing nt a pace
that could only have one result. The
German "side-stepped" twice by In

going through the thatched roof and
his rudder cocking up in the air. The

"Diarist ' of the Westminster Ga

Intel y of the Americans lu France and
the Impression made by them upon the
British there. "Without giving offense
to anybody," be remarks, "I hope I
may say that British admiration of
them has gone far beyond the limits
that were considered likely to be
reached, and thnt they hnvo become
strong favorites. But there Is one
point in particular which seems o
have Impressed every officer who tnlks
to me on the subject. They all quite
expected to find the Americans fine
men physically, with plenty of intel
ligence and their full share of courage
and dash and endurance; but they
agree that they have been surprised
to note the eagerness of the new allies
to seek advice. 'You have been at

In Defense of Her Flag.
How the union Jack was ably de
fended by an Irishwoman in the streets
of Paris on July 4 is amusingly told:
"Outside one of the biggest drapery
shops of Parin two ladles handled a
union jack which lay on a great pile of
flags for sale and remarked in French
on Its cheap ness. The salesman, un?
skilled accents, was'rash enough to
explain the low price by saying that
'the union Jack wasn't In season.' He
received in reply the most eloquent
discourse attainable by nn indignant
Irishwoman of unblemished loyalty:
nnd an Irish brogue speaking French
ls an engine of war before which the
most Intrepid must quail. There ls
one Frenchman who will never again
suggest thut there ls n close season
