WM received, tbls afternoon at the head
quarters of uen. Beauralns from th
Uermatia aaylnic they hart decided
abandon Ghent and neklng the Belgians
not to fire on the suburb of the town,
where whlto flags were mixed.
American troops from Ohio under the
command of Uen. Fnrrisworth played n
treat part In tlio relief of the city hy
an attack on the Kecke allent, sixteen
miles southwest of Ghent, which was
taken by storm yesterday. There lossea
were comparatively light.
In their retreat through West Flanders
the Germans wcro guilty of unnecessary
cruelties and destruction and these as
umed a more savago asnect In the vi
cinity of Ghent. Tho town of Deynxe.
nouthuest of Ghent, suffered cruelties
recalling tho German atrocities of 1914.
Thero was organized pillage by soldiers
under command of officers, .deliberate
burning of houses and theft. Bavarian
troops, under the command of Gen. von
Ostrowskl, were conspicuous In this work.
The General himself, after being rerved a
meal In a private house In Deynie, tore
down the blinds and appropriated vari
ous souvenirs from the parlor.
One hundred and sixty-three civilians,
mostly women and children, met death
In the battles and bombardments pro
ceding the evacuation of Deynxe. Thirty
four of this number were burned to
death In cellars where they were orderjrt
to seek refuge by llavarlon troops.
After giving three orders Von Oi
trowskl's soldiers 4are reported Id have
thrown hond grenadeB and Incendiary
bombs Into the cellars. The public
square In front of the church at Deynze
baa been mined by the Germans and
civilians are still barred from It.
German noldlor at one point during
ths retreat In Belgium carried off a
stock of flour, lard nnd pork purchased
by the Belgian Belief Commission mj
destined to feed the Belgian civilian
population. Sixteen non-commlsslonjd
officers entered a flour mill and ordere 1
tho German eoldlers to lond six Dox
cars with flour valued at $100,000. Trn

robbed of 48,000 pounds of lard and
11,000 pounds of pork.

tiO.VDON, Nov. 7. Little doubt Is en
tertained In London that Germany will
accept the armistice terms of the Allies.
Tola belief Is based on the Increasing
gravity of Germany's' position, both mili
tarily and Internally.
The German retreat, g-eatly accel
erated yesterday by an average advance
ot Blx miles on the entire front from
the Scheldt to the Meuse, has become al
most a route. Germany's communica
tion lines from France and Belgium also
are threatened moat seriously by the ad
vance of the British, French nnd Ameri
cans Wednesday.
Vervlns, only eight miles from' Htrson,
an important railway centre, was cap
tured Wednesday, as was Omlcourt, ten
miles from Mczlere'B and eight miles
from Sedan. The British turned the Ger.

Tho Yotelechr ZeUung says the German

asserts there is no need to lay down

employs all her strength to defend her

All that part, of "the city east of the
Meuse was reported filled with ths re

With this American Arut on the
Sudan Front, Nov. 7. The matter of
peace negotiations failed to slow down In
tho slightest degree the operations along
tho front to-day. The news that Ger
many haa taken definite tepa to obtain
an armistice reached advanced head
quarters, but was not accompanied by
any orders affecting the big drive now In
progress, and If Is expected that the
American lino will bo carried forward
without pause.
W Ith that part' of Sedan resting on the
western bank of tho river occupied, the
American army Is consolidating Its po
sitions and preparing for a further advance.
The Americans cast of the Meuwe fought
Thursday over some of the roughest
country In France, .taking the heights
outh of the Woevre forest and advanc
ing more than four kilometers notwith
standing the desperate rear guard activ
ity of the German machine gunners.
Hill 330, the great hogback between
Lion and Mnrvaux, was taken In the
morning by the Amerlcuhs. The Ameri
cans pushed through the series of woods
and over the rolling country, reaching
tho regions of 'Uandeville, IlreheMlle and
Limey. Vllosnes, Slvry and Haraumont,
to the south and east of Dun-sur-Meuee,
were among the places taken.
West of the Meuse the American
troops aro In chue touch with the rail
way line between Minor and Martin
court, where the roadbed has been de
stroyed, the material having been car
ried an ay to strengthen the German po
eltlonii nn the. heights beyond. To the
south of this Remllly was captured.
It Is evident that the Germans are de
termined nqt to yield Sedan unless abso
lutely forced to do so. They have made
b!g concentrations on the heights back
of the city and In such places as can bo
defended both above and twlow on the
river Concrete lntrenchments near the
city are strongly held, whllo all the
woods and hridges In the neighborhood
either have been destroyed or mined
.Since November 1 the Americans have 1
taken 6,000 prisoners. They have freed

It was on September 1, 1S70, that the
Germans won the battle of Sedan, which
since has associated the name of the
city with the breaking up of the French
Kmplre and the rise of the German mod

Our 31st Birthday
Comes nt n time when the very air seems prrgniiit with momentous
events and we feel, more tlmn ever before, our great responsibility to
that vast public which has mntle possible such business suet-ess as wc
have been fortunate enough to have achieved. -
Wc might, of course, talk nt great length upon the aims and objects
of our business policy, also of what wc have Accomplished and still
hope to accomplish, but it seems to us that while these things mean

This much wc feel impelled to say, however that Service, Quality
.and Dependability arc now nnd will continue to be the great outstand
ing characteristics of Drill Stores and of Drill Merchandise.
