Tho Gormnns ronowed their assault, on tho British and French linos In Plcnrdy yesterday, launching a strong attack on tho whole front botwoon tho Sommo and Avro rivers.

Local officers of tho four orders suggest that mombors of the four orders march in bodies but that employes tako position in tho parade as 11 division. The supreme tragedies of war are not enacted on 'the battlefield, but in the ,home. Above the shouts of command and encourage ment, the roar .and shock of the great guns, and all the swelling tumult of battle which bear the husband and father to a hero's grave and a martyr's glory, there rise the weeping of the bereaved wile and' the cries of little children deprived of a father's love and care. American fathers are now on the battlefronts of France. Many must fall; how many de pends upon us who remain safely at home. A single Liberty Bond will help to save a soldier's life, j'our soldiers life, and bring him home in safety to those who hold his life far more precious than their own.
