A Dally Mail editorial concerning the concen- tration of the Germans in immense strength to crush the British expedi tionary force says: "Germany has brought the stupend ous odds of three to one against the British soldiers, of whom we may well feel proud; but the situation is most critical. France has done everything in her power. Russia cannot help except by indirect pressure. Great Britain alone can find more men, and find them she must. The nation must prepare on a colossal scale and must send every man and every gun that can be spared here and now to the decisive point in France." London, Aug. 29, 2:40 A. M.

Just after reveille our cavalry pickets fell back, reporting the approach of the enemy, In force. Lay In Trenclicx. "We lay in trenches as our artil lery opened on them in fine style, and soon they returned the compliment. They were a long time finding the range. ' "After about half an hour the in fantry came Into view. They were in solid squares, standing out sharply against the sky line. You couldn't help hitting them. "We lay in our trenches without a sound, and they crept nearer and nearer. Then our officers gave the word, a sheet of flame flickered along, the trenches and a stream of bullets tore through the advancing mass. They seemed to stagger like a drunk en man suddenly hit between the eyes, and then they made a run at us. Half way across the open another volley tore through their ranks. Artillery Drops Shells. "By this time our artillery began dropping shells among them, and then they broke into open formation, rushing like mad toward the trenches. On our left the Germans fell back in confusion and lay down vherever cover was available. W' gave them no rest, and soon they were again In flight. "Then came more furious shelling of our trenches and another mad rush across the open on our front. Thia time they were strongly supported by cavalry, who suffered terribly but came right up to outlines. Good Old Way. "We received them in the good old way, the front ranks, with the bay onet and the rear ranks keeping up an incessant fire, and after a hard tussle they retired hastily. Just as they thought themselves safe our mounted men swooped down on them, cutting right and left. "This sort of thing went on through the whole day without bringing the Germans any nearer to shifting us. Ordered to Retreat. "After the last attack we lay down to sleep in our clc'-'' but before sun rise we were toll to abandon our position. Nobody knew why we had to but we obeyed without a murmur. "The enemy's cavalry, evidently down on us again In force, but our misunderstanding our action, came men behaved very well and the Ger mans gave It up as a bad job." SEMI-FINALS POSTPONED.
