?The American troops advancing along
the Marne have discovered hundreds
of dead Germans. The victims fell
before the heavy machino-gun lire of
the Americans? during the retreat. In
one horseshoe area the ground was
covered with dead. The Americans
buried as many bodies as was pos
sible. It is estimated that 2.000 Ger
mans fell there.
Farmers along th?* Marne report hav
ing: seen the bodies of German d-.*ad
floating down the stream. The mili
tary authorities are planning some sys
tem by which they can clear the river
of bodies.
Three days after the Germans evac
uated Chateau-Thierry, the Americans
found a lone German In Mont St. Pere,
hiding in a cellar. The prisoner said
!ie was tired of the war and was de
termined to secrete himself, notwith
standing the fact that he hat! no food,

canceled, presumably owing' to the dlf- |
Acuity of effecting an orderly retire- j
meiit in the pinched salient, and it is I
now possible the Herman command has
decided to retain the present positions
as long: as possible.
Meanwhile, the military writers point
out. the allies are using: up the Ger
man reserves in a battle where the ?
Hermans arc continuously In a dlsad- !
vantageous position, so the situation Is .
entirely satisfactory to the allies. If 1
the enemy remains in the salient he j
cannot possibly undertake any impor-|
tant offensive therefrom, and the al- t
lies could hold the salient lightly and
devote their energies elsewhere.
One. reason for the Germans' aban- i
donment of the plan for retirement Is
found in the reports of allied airmen,
which show tremendous congestion
along the lines of German communi
cation. The Germans may be merely
holding on as long as possible in order |
f. effect an orderly withdrawal, and
to remove the vast accumulation of ?
stores and munitions which has been ?
pathered In this district, ready for a 1
great advance southward.

TYPHOID WARNING
Stnte Monrrt of llenlth Meek* <o Pre
vent CouclltloiiM ii( Kormer
Sunnucr*.
With the typhoid records for June
just completed, showing a total of re
ported cases of 18-, the State Board of
Health announced yesterday that un
less the people are careful and obey
the rules of health, the record of pre
vious j ears in july and August will bo
repeated this summer.
The rases are pretty generally dis
tributed throughout the State. I.ast
May there were 1"3 cases reported; in
April. 111. and in March only sixty-live.
July and August, however, are the
months when typhoid takes its most
deadly toll of human life. With proper
attention to health regulations, the
State board points out that this July
and Au,'tits', could easily be made prac
tically free of new vases in Virginia.
There were 610 caseA reported in
July.'ltM". and ?">7 cases In August last
year. July. ISlfi. brought to light
??as*?. while August two years ago
had the terrible record of 1.106 cases.
It is to prevent a repetition of such
conditions that the health authorities
are I.ending ev^r.v effort, through pub
licity. teachers, ministers, parents and
special investigations and the work of"
inspectors, to convince th?? people of
this State that typhoid is a most easily
preventable disease; that 6imple pre
cautions in disposing of wastes front
the body, so that they cannot contami
nate food and drinking water, will go
a long way, nearly the whole way. in
fact, to rrevent the disease, and that
when cases do appear, it is criminally
neglige..t for persons not to follow in
structions as to the precautions that
should be taken to protect members 1
of the families and neighbors from I
becoming victims.
The health board also emphasizes
tile fact that it is unpatriotic not to j
do everything possible to keep down
disease at this time. With thousands i
of young men going into the army and
navy, it is the du?v of every one to
do everything possible to have them as
healthy as possible. Figures show that
hundreds of .%t**-s of typh>ld developed
soon after the men were called, and it
is reasonable to suppose that if they
had come from properir . sanitated
homes and communities, they would
have been fre? from disease This. In
fact, has been proved. Another point
emphasized is. that with so many doc- >
tors and nurses away from the State (
and going, people must keep well, for j
medical attention will not be available
should they be taken 111.
The same precautions that apply to
the prevention of typhoid in the main
are applicable to the prevention of
other summer diseases, and to i.tfan
tile paralysis. Troper disposal of the
wastes from the body and vacclnxtion,
it is pointed out. are the two great
rules to follow.
