The rearguard of the Morrocan rifle
1 regiment which covered the retreat of
the French center across the river on
the fourteenth acquitted themselves
)' ' with distinction. They had been posted
In the village of Crouy. At 4
i' o'clock In the afternoon the Germans
debouched In the road end advanced
toward the village. The riflemen
< s carefully concealed their quick-firers
and nosted themselves on each lids
of the road. Not- a sound was made
and nothing was allowed to show
& above the blackened ruins. The Oer
- mans thought the road was clear and
ran to the Tillage to get shelter from
if- the French artillery. When ' they
were within BOO yards of the place
: v the riflemen opened fire suddenly.
' The-Germans were surprised. There
: was no-room to. deploy and they fell
In heaps. Those who could retreated
to the brook of Braye. Reenforced
? they reformed their ranks and atfifc
tempted to turn the French position
; from the east of the village. Three
fe companies of riflemen charged. The
shock was awful. Bayonets were
twisted out of shape and then the
? dusky, soldiers used' the butts of the
were told to hold the place to 5 p. mJ
' . ?
efused to retire. They did so only
ifter a staff officer was sent to them
wice with'an order for retreat.'
During.the night the.German artllr
ery roared ceaselessly in a bom-,
lardment of Solssons but at dawn of
he" fifteenth the' artillery slacked'and
;ave place to infantry 'fire.- At 7
'clock a battalion of the line' occu-'
lylng the farms of St. Paul were
irdered to protect" the .advanced
reaches which were threatened by
he German attack. They charged
,nd broke the'German ranks driving
hem'as far as the Crouy railroad stalon
and taking 100 prisoners; Hardy,
however, had they returned with
he prisoners when they were assailed
>y fresh German forces and for 'two
lours St. Paul was subected to n furoua
The tide of battle ebbed and flowed
n the angle of a stable wall. Here
he German dead were so . numerous
hat some stood ppright, lacking room
o fall. The good practice of the
French three-Inch guns guided by
teroplanes prevented German re-enorcements
from debouching from the
vestern slope of the Vrigny plateau
ind the Germans, exhausted and discouraged,
retired in a body to Crouy
it noon.- The French retained the
nastei-y of the suburbs of Solssons
>n fh right bank of the river. Their
'ront is stronger than ever.
WASHINGTON, D. C.. Jan. 18?
"Every since the beginning of history
in western Europe, Solssons.
itorra center of the most bitter fighting
ofy recent weeks In the western
war-theater^has taken a prominently-chronicled,
part,'.' says a statement
Issued by the National Geographic
Society today. "Before the Roman
tide, directed by JuIIub Caesar,
Howed over Gaui, Solssons, then a
metropolis in a nation of twelve
titles, was the capital of the warlike
suesslones, one of the moat powerful
people in Gcul. DivHlaous, one' of
their kings, had even managed to
extend- his authority freyuUd-'tlWaea;

It lies sixty-Bve miles northeast of
Paris, and constitutes one of the
links In the chain of French Becondllne
defenses. The region.all about
Solssons is agricultural, and ' the
city's trade is mostly In grain, vegetables,
live-Btock, leather and forest
products. Manufacturers of the
place are not of great Importance;
they consist of leather, foundry
products, flannel and cotton cloth and
farm implements. There are extensive
lumber yards in the city.
"The one-time importance of SoisBons
has long been waning. The
siege, bombardment, sack and brand
of war have been repeated often iu
the experiences of the city, and seem
at last to have sapped Its will foi
further growth. One of the oldest
cities in France, there are very few
cities in the republic which have seen
more rugged service.

There are a number of famous old
abbeys in Soissons, and private building
of centuries ago. The roya
abbey of Notre Dame, now a barrack,
was found in 660; that of St
Medard, of which little now remains
was found about 660 by Clotalre I
At . one time this abbey was amonf
the most powerful in France. Its abbots
coined money, and were lordi
of more than 200 villages. One oi
two meagre fragments are all that ii
left from its ancient splendor.
"Soissons has taken part in al
the wars of France. It stood wltl

began.'an onslaught which, for-Sois
sons, has lasted, with more or lesi
lengthy periods of respite, for near
