Jt Is as If each had been swept by a withering blast before which every object, whether a work of nature or of man, has crumbled Into ruins or become twisted and de formed, and even the very ground Itself looks us if it had heen shaken ljv a violent convulsion of nature." "To the south of the Ypres-Caraines canal, says the eye-witness, the ground, although there are some en closures. Is comparatively open. To the north of It, however, there are many woods and these have become a tu'tiKle of fallen trees Interspersed with shell ciuleis. , Troops Vp to Kmw In Mud. . To add to the hardships of such figlitinK, the troops have been attack ing on ground in which the men sink up to their knees In the mud. "Despite all these drawbacks," con tinues the observer, "counter-attacks have been carried out with the result that in nearly all cases the original line has been regained." Quoting from letters, which he Siivs were found on the bodies of Ger man soldiers, in support of his state ment, tlie eye-witness says: "There is no doubt that the feeling In Oernmnv towards the war is rhwing. They probably are as de tenniiied ns ever to fight to the. last but the early optimism and confb ilenee are vanishing. It would appear also that the drain upon the enemy'B manhood is having a depressing eliect. KrsaU Itesei vlsts Kcpurtci! Called. "It is reported that even the F.r fatz reservists who are suffering from ailments which would render them unfit for military service, ure being tailed upon and that the supply of sound Krsatz reservists has been ex hausted in some districts.

"A coiinter-iittack on the 17th also was a most daring piece of work. Trenches occupied by Ihe enemy, luiil been subjected to such u heavy lire that they would not await our onset. I As our men charged forward cheer fields I ng the ('leiinaiis were observed to be leaving the trenches and hurrying to the rear. loiiy Men Hold Isolated Troiu-U. In oneMn mh, which became in the course of the lighting, more or less isolated, forty of our men ontlnucd to hold firm until every one of them had been either killed or wound) tl. F.veiitually there were only three left who were capable of tiring and these three continued to hold the enemy at bay. In the meantime, Word Was brought to those in the rear that their ammunition was nearly exhaust ed and seven men, the strongest available, were selected to bring up as much ammunition as they rould carry. These latter found the three wounded survivors still statuUng amid the bodies of their dead and disabled comrades and still tiring steadily. The support, slender as It was, came in the nick of time for at that moment the Hermans launched another assault which, like the pre vious ones, was beaten off and the position was saved. "Our howitzers did especially good work on the trenches captured by the Germans at one point. Observers could see one lyddite shell after an other bursting in the trenchei; and hurling the defenders Into the air."

Hy day and by night, say the Dutch newspapers, big motor cars loaded with German soldiers are hurrying and through Hclgium to ' the western fronts; and the troops which had been sent to northern Belgium are going back to the trenches. The fact that some of the troops now passing through Ilelgium come from the east ern front suggests to the military tb servers that the Anstrlatis have decld- ed that they are ablet, to hold the Rus sians in their present position while the Germans are carrying out their I new offensive in the west, j German Silence Significant.
