At the Britioh Front, Aug. 24.
rho British are again attacking the
mnemy successfully today on a 30
nile front extending from Lihons,
)ear Chaulnes to Mercatel, below ar
'as. They are gaining ground every
Ten thousand prisoners have been
aken by the British third and fourth
rmies in the last two' days. Sir
aattalion coniandem, a brigadier
eneral and a brigade adjutant are
ncluded among the captives.
The British operations have grad
ially increased both in scale and in
ensity until today the decisive gains
romise far reaching results along the
0-mile front of attack.
The operations of tif'e last two
veeks were the result of carefullest
tudy by the commandcrs and of the
uperb gallantry of all rank which
as stimulated the entire British
trmy creating the spirit known in
nilitary parlance as "tails up," which
s in contrast to the term, "wind up,"
is applied to the Germans, meaning
hat the enemy is baffled and dis
ouraged. "rails up" means that the
3ritish are confident and eager to
teep hammering the foe.
Officers returning rrom leave re
)ort that the folks at home are re
oicing, but, they add, it is impossible
o be happier and more hopeful than
ire the men on the front.
This August marks the dawn of a
iew era for the British army. While
am comparatively new on this front
ny observations are sufficient to pre-14
lict that the near future will bring
ven greater achievemnents. I have
raversed the lines from- Belgium
outhward to the environs of battered

he enthusia';m and discipline of the
3ritish troops and with the youth and
'igor of the men.
Nor is the wherewithal lacking. The
ritish have anl enormous equipment.
'he troops wear first-class shoes and
niforms and their food is excellent.
They have plenty of training
chools. The efficiency and enterprise
,f the auxiliary departments, such as
viation. tanks and armored cars and
he skilful manner in which the ma
hines are used stir all observers to
he highest admiration.
I have seen the sturdy Belgians on
he northern extremity of the western
attle line. It is a short front as com
ared to the larger organization, but
erhaps more difficult than any oth
r, flooded as the trenches and dug
muts are, owing to the low and
wampy ground in that area.
The Belgians are still doing their
