Censorship Put Into Effect to Remarkable Degree Not
One Word Regarding British Troops or Naval Ac

May Be orPosition of Any Battleships.
The censorship put into effect by the British authorities
over the movements of the empire's armed forces, afloat and
in Belgium, is effective to a remarkable degree. Not one
word of news has come through for several days past concern -ing
British military or naval activities. Censored despatches
from Brussels and Paris have frequently referred to the pres
ence of British troops arrayed against the forces of Germany,
but one word has been allowed to come through from any
source to indicate what the numerical strength of the British
field army may be, or where the units may be located.
Equal secrecy shrouds the movements of the British war
ships believed to be holding the German fleet in check in the
I North sea.

nearly routed when suddenly the strains of the Marsaillaise ;
E r resounded in the French lines and the men rallied. With
splendid gallantry, they charged, hurling themselves on the
German troops, breaking through their lines and putting them
