T'he line of the "hattle of the north"
extends over the most historic ground
in Flanders, where, on the field of the
"Cloth of Gold" Francis I and lenry
Vill had their celebrated meeting in
1520. Owing to the sinuous character
of the line of battle the total length
of it, from the coast of Belgium to the
Swiss border, now reaches nearly 360
Belief In their final success appears
to have taken a firm hold on the al
lies. All the men display confidence
in their commanders who are doing
everything possible to spare their
troops. The allied soldiers are fighting
with vigor. They often perform
marches which seem beyond human
power. This is made evident when
small detachments are acting apart
from the mnain bddies.
French dragoons recently were en
trustcd with the task of covering the
passage of a river by artillery. They
met a body of German luessars in a
clash. Both sides charged simultan
eously and the melee lasted ten min
ites. during which the men slashed
and pierced each other with swords
and lances while the officers' revolvers
Finally the Hussars -broke ranks and
galloped off, leaving imany of their
men on the field. The dragoons also
suffered severely, but attained their
object-that of securing a safe passage
for their comrades.
French officers in the immediate vi
cinity of the firing line recently were
amazed to see two motor cars con
taining seven children, all under ten
years of age, and two grown persons

eric Wood, one of the attacies of the
\miilerican eibassy inl Paris, was inl
one or the ears with \It-. Cot dy, a Vol

Accollpalnyillg them1 were tihe! chil
dren of Cou rt Teadysky, a dis
tinguished Ilu igariani nobleman now
,il in Paris. The children had been
rescIled from a chateati in Northern
Fra nee, where they had been with
Servants ince tle outbreak of thle war,
by an expedition sent out by Myron T.
lerrick, the Aimerican ambassador.
During the trip out the iparty was
arrested several times. Their first ar
rest occurred near Compiegne. A
French territorial who stopped then
ointed out a village spire In the di.s
tance, saying "Germans are 'bombard
Ing." The party desired to turn back,
but tie soldier informed them they
nust go to the village and see the
colonel of that section.
When the party arrived the bon
bardment was very heavy. Houses
were being struck by shrapnel and col
lapsing every minute. While their pa
pers were being examined in front of
the colonel's headquarters, a shell
burst directly over head, but as soon
as the noise subsided the colonel con
tinued his conversation as though
nothing had happened.
The Ainericans had had difficulty In
finding their way through Senlis,
Amiens and Boulogne, owing to 'the
disappaerance of sign posts and the
refusal of the peasants to give thei
an' information. One place they pass
ed had been taken and retaken six
times by the I nch and Gerinans and
consequently tie iinhabitants feared to
give them directions oin the ground
that they might 'be spies.
On the eastern section of the allies'
line the fighting still continues se
vere. ,The Germans today made a
str'ong attack on Malancourt, porth
west of Verdun, which, however, was
unsuccessful. The French have even
made some progress here and also in
Alsace despite the German efforts to
hold them or force them back.
A large nuomber of Paris firemen,
equipped with a sort of oxygen hel
met, have arrived in the region of
Roye to bury the German dead on the
battlefield, where they have been lying
for thre, wveks. The. firemen brought
a large supply of disin(ectant wvit
thein In order to lessen the danger of
colintating ilsease inl handling the
bodies. Onl Ihe battle tld it is saiid
