WITH THE AMERICAN ARMIES
WEST OF MONTDIDIER, May 5
American guns are shelling Mont
didier, Canttsny, Mesnll-St Georges
and other towns and roads in this vi
cinity captured by the Germans some
Montdidier, which can be seen from
observation posts in the American
lines, has been badly knocked about,
but the church Is still standing. The
Cantigny church also Is intact, al
though it is probably used as a Ger
man observation post.
Shells Start Fire.
The American artillery blew up
what was probably an ammunition
dump near Cantigny, the Are lasting
half an hour,.
There Is great aerial activity in
this" sector. Two Boche planes were
shot down and another was captured.
The Germans have introduced a
new method of using gas. They are
throwing over glass bottles, appar
ently fired by springs, which burst
and liberate nauseous fumes.
Three Germans recently were cap
tured by a Yankee trick. Nine of
them attempted a raid on an Ameri
can post. Three of them were
caught One of these escaped, but
before reaching the German lines he
encountered another American pa
trol and was wounded and recap
tured A patrol, which encountered more
than forty Boches In No Man's Land,
fought its way safely back to the
American lines, inflicting heavy cas
ualties on the Germans.
