"We read in yesterday morning's
paper wnat you had to say with refer- i
ence to investigating the cost of gal-1
vanized corrugated roofing, and we j
feel satisfied t?_'at you would prefer
all those who contemplate building
warehouses purchasing roofing from
or through South Carolina merchants,
since they can purcnase to equai advantage
and in 90 per cent, of the
cases to better advantage. We would
be only too glad to be put before the
public as the Globe Iron Roofing ana

we would appreciate it if you would

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR i
London, Nov. 12, 10:05 p. m.?The
Germans have crossed the Yser river,
according to the admission of the latest
Paris official communication, and
although the invaders occupy only a
few Lundred yards on the left bank
of the stubbornly contested river, the
allies cannot be indifferent to this
gain and desperate efforts will be
made to drive back this slight wedge.
Ypres, extending like a fortress bastion
into the lines of the invaders is
stiil held by the Britis':^ and unless
the flank attacks on this positi6n are
success ul, Bixmude is likely to prove
a barren gain for fc^e Germans who

A TREMENDOUS BATTLE
MILITARY MEN WATCH RUSSIA'S
English Government to Ask Parliament
for More Than Billion
London, Nov. 13.?While the battle
in West Flanders continues to hold
public attention because of the desperaie
character of t:-e fighting, the
numbers of men engaged and the territory
at stake, military men now look
on East Prussia as the centre of gravity
of the war.
In the latter field a tremendous battle
is developing. The Russians are
pushing vigorously a great enveloping
movement. They are engaged with the
Germans along a wide curve of 150
miles, from Stalluponen in the northeast,
through Goldap and Kruglanken,
wfeich is well within the tangle of
lakes, down, to Soldau in the southwest.
Military observers say the Germans
apparently have checked their retreat
in Poland and aro counter attacking
They say, however, fchat the xvussians
are not to be turned from their pidn,
which, is believed to be an attack on
Danzig. They argue that tht Germans
either must allow East Prussia to be
overrun a second time or bring up reinforcements,
and that they 'hardly can
weaken ?:eir army along the Polish
frontier, for that would leave Posen '
and Silesia open to invasion. The
allies, naturally, are hoping an effort
will be made to relieve East Prussia a:
a sacrifice to the German armies in
Belgium and (France.
TVzll Have Advantage.
In any fighting in their own country
the Germans will have the advantage
over the Russians, as they have
a net-work of strategic railways to
move their troops quickly and they use
more motors U:.an their opponents.
