ONDON, August 7-
aJ ciated F'rcss) The nervous
ness of the Germaa commanders
along the JSritish sections of the
Western front, where Prince
Kuprecht is withdrawing his
men from a number of the most
exjjosed salients, was evidenced
yesterday in a scries of local as
saults made against the Dritish
positions, assaults which partook
of the nature of raids in force,
evidently lor the purpose of se
curing information of what Gen
eral Maig might be planning.
One of the heaviest of these at
tacks was made along the Bray
Corbie road, liorth of the Somme,
in which the Germans took a
small ortion of the advanced
trench line. Local fighting in
this area is continuing, the Bri
tish taking a few prisoners.
The German account of this
raid, as1 published officially in the
VVuerte Zeitung in Berlin, reports
it as a considerable ' Rattle, $1
which hit Germans were Victor
ious, inflicting heavy casualties
' on the British and taking one
hundred prisoners. The German

The most pronounced feature
of the day on the British front was
the evacuation by the Germans
of the apex of the Lys salient,
their troops being withdrawn at
night from a deep stretch of ter

mediately occupied and consoli

The evacuated territory along
the Somme and in 1'icardy, on
the Albert front, is being organ

South of the Somme the French
advanced on the Avre north of
Montdidier in the face of heavy
opposition to their advance
guards. No efforts were made to
push the gains to any great ex
