In these two and ""a half months the Allies have captured 254,000 prisoners on the western front alone. These men wen- all taken on the battlefields, and with ver) few excep tions would be guide one men I doubt If the whole Herman annual contingent of recruits today pioduces 350,000 clasiS, one men. To the prisoners must be added the lysses in killed and wounded, and there, at a moderate estimate, would not be fewer than four limes as many as the prisoners, say l.oon.noo So In two and a half months uermany 'has lost on the western front not less than 1,250,000 men To her annual con tingent of nineteen-) ear-old boys, she hai only her recovered wounded and Ick to add; and as these are not nearly 'aufliclent to make good these losses and keep her armies up to strength, she lias therefore had to live on her capital since July 15. Bhe has had to break up twenty-one divisions In order to till the ranks ot the remainder, and at the same time to reducle the size of her battalions In thet. remaining divisions; that ts to ay. she haii had to reduce her military establishment on the western finnl by not fewer than 600,000 men. ' Vhll thts ha been ffulnir nn tile Americans have been pouring into France. Fiom reports which we have received, we, may estimate the number of American soldiers who have com pleted their training nnd gone to the front during1 this period of two and a half months at about 500,000 The balance of strength has theretote changed In favor of the Allies to the ex tent of approximately 1,000,000 men; and this process which will (ontlnue until the end of the war, the dlmunltlou of the enemy's forces. Is the key to what has been happening recently In France tnd Belgium. 5 The, Germans, being unable to make t;ood their losses, have been forced to try to reduce their commitments When S"och hurled them back ftom the Marne to the Alsne, they attempted to shoiteu their fronts on the Homme and In Flan dera: but before they could do this In their own time and In their own way, they were anticipated and defeated by ,hlr Douglas Halg. They then hoped to be able to stand for the winter In the Hlndenburg sjstem, nnd once more they have been defeated by the skill or the Allied leadership und by the splendid fighting or the Allied troops. The part taken by the Hrltlsh arm) In this flehtlnc Is the most glorious In its a :.hni. Mstnrv. Though In strengtli con. 'J? alderably less than half of th total '''"forces of the.

She does not grab up sundry articles, stuff them into a suitcase, and leave behind what happens to dome last to hand. She collects evervthin she thinks she needs, spreads it out, times too much; dumps it out, Degins again, and continues this selective process until the case, after much persuasion, comes together.

" ' lOrlwnrxA 2&c&Ms THE Army boys abroad will each be permitted by the Government to receive only one package at Christmas. This must bo sent by November 15, in a Red Cross box, with an official tag. As thc box is but 0x4x3 incites it is difficult to find things small enough; but A. l'omerantz & Co. have two valuable suggestions on sale. Thc "Fyne Point" sterling silver pencil, which icquiies no sharpening, and has a magazine holding six extra finely pointed leads. But the newest idea is the Military Ink tab Fountain Pen, for men in active service. At tho k top of thc pen is a chamber holding a quantity of inktabs, tablets of con centratcd ink, requiring only to be dissolved in water to fill the pen. thus eliminating all possibility of being without ink. And don't forget a Chiistmas Greeting card! ClOFFEE, novy so common, did . not come into vogue in France ' until 1669. when the Turkish Ambassador to Louis XIV served it to his guests on gold and silver sauc ers. Refore this Coffee Houses had been opened in England and become the gathering .place of wits and poets. Since then thc favor of coffee has never decreased, nnd it is moic extensively used in this country than in any other, proving conclusively that it is indeed an "intellectual bev el age"! At E. Bradford Clatke's, 1520 Chestnut Street, they sell the same coffee, their own particular Blend, that they have been putting up for years, in .1-pound packages. It is a rich, clear coffee, suitable for breakfast or dinner, and rather than sacrifice tho quality, has been slight ly raised in price, but orders for it continue to pour in. THE Custom Service Ready-to-Wcar Clothes Department of Jacob Reed's Sons. 1424 Chest nut Street, conveniently olaced on I the Mezzanine, is intended for men secKing out-ot-tne-ordtnary suits, and the "Reed" model shown there is the latest expression of stvlc in men's clothes. The coat is cut with a high waist line, accentuating the wearers iiegnt, anil conforms snug ly to the body from the waist line up. Below the waist line it flares gradually over the hips, greatlv re sembling in this" tho new military coats so much admired. The fionts of the coat are tailored soft, and cut almost sti night. The lapels, notched rather high, join the collar at n sloping angle that is unusually at tractive, and altogether the "Reed," with its graceful lines and comfort able fitting, is a most sensible and practical model. HANDMADE blouses, always as sociated in one's mind with Paris, are not necessarily con fined to that city. Hosts of women in America have clever fingers also, and that they can turn out as dainty hand-stitched thinsrs as anvthinar im ported is established bv Ronvvit and Teller.

They are ex quisite In their simple elegance, with round, square and pointed necks, or high collars, many hand embroidered or trimmed with real filet lace, and opening back or front. The tailored Georgette model, with soft, tucked bosom and double shawl collar and cuffs (the second of organdie), Is irresistible. IS ANYTHING more provoking than buying good materials and then having them ruined in tho kitchen? Coffee-making by the old process of boiling is rather an un certain quantity, some cooks never managing to get it just right, but often the failure is not due so much to cookie as to worn-out utensils. At the House Furnishing Store of J. Franklin Miller, 1612 Chestnut Street, there arc coffee pots and per colators galore, the newest' of which are the all-glass Silex percolators. These come with electric attachments or alcohol lamps, and being entirely of non-breakable glass arc safe and sanitary. The coffee is made on the table in thtee minutes, and it is in teresting to watch the process.
