The speech was preceded by the usual par ade and the judge with all the earnest ness of a man whose soul was wrapped up in the defeat of the kaiser said: "I have three sons with the colors and I want to say right now that I don't want to see one of them back here until ! after he has been to Berlin with his regiment. That's the kind of a peace I think we should have." He told of the treachery of the Ger man troops in offering to surrender to our boys and then annihilating them with bombs concealed in their hands, and continued : "That is the same with this peace offer. While they are talking peace to us they are preparing to am bush our soldiers."

PARIS. Oct. 9, 6:14 p. m. The bat tle is proceeding with great intensity along the whole fighting front. The Allied armies are battering away on two fronts, totaling more than 110 miles thirty miles between North Cambrai and South St. Quentin and eighty miles between points northwest of Rheims and North of Verdun. With the fall of Cambrai General Luden dorff's support commenced crumbling al)Out him.

The report states that a shipment of twenty-three boxes of excellent cloth ing. weighing1', in gross, 3,583 pounds, and consisting of 2.688 garments, in- ( eluding 187 pairs of shoes and various pieces of bedding, left this city October 7th on its way to the headquarters of the Commission for Relief in Belgium at Newark, N. J., from which point it will be shipped directly to Belgium. This is a very remarkable showing for Carson, especially considering the fact that two previous drives had netted not much less than two tons of good clothing for the same cause. In submitting its report the commit tee expressed its appreciation of the warm-hearted kindness of the people of this city and mentioned the following persons, asking me chapter to give them a vote of thanks for their splen did co-operation in rendering the drive the colossal success it proved to be: Mesdames Bigelow, Karns, Dale, Coffin, Bliss, Milton Dority, Mackey, Ligon, Frisbee.

Instead, it meant the evacuation of territories invaded since August 1914, with the intention to leave the righting of the wrongs of France in the Alsace-Lorraine matter to the determination of a -final peace confer ence. The Wilson query does not bind the president to any special course. It i was distinctly an inquiry and not a re- j ply to any peace offers. It will clear j the way for a fitting reply as soon as it t is known whether Germany is sincere. 1 ilie president telt mat a curt answer would be used by the war lords to stim ulate the people of Germany and Aus tria to fresh efforts. German leaders must now show their true colors, not alone to the world,, but to their own people. Wilson's position places tjie burden of continuing the war on Ger- many. ering tward Juniville and Marchault.

GIRLS' DOUGHNUT SHOP BOMBARDED Written for the United Press by Miss Irene Mclntyre, Salvation Army canteen girl at the front. WITH THE AMERICAN TROOPS AT THE FRONT, Sept. 17, by mail. A few flights ago we had another taste of war. We had been lulled into a false sense of security by an unusually quiet week, very little artillery, no bar rages at all. and very little air fighting. In fact, the pans in our kitchen bad not been rattled tor days, and we were ! ready to forget we were at the front, j except for soldirs and the necessity for j i . - i . i veeping oui oi ouserwuon 01 v.erman look ut All of a sudden at midnight the big,..,, r,,tv. ri. f ... ,,. ,,,,, guns of the Bodies let loose in a box ; I'dl I dc dt'vjui a mile dliu cl liau nuiu us at the nearest point.

The night was blue black, and with each retaliating shot from our guns great orange flames darted and disappeared into the black ness. We remained perfectly silent w ime we watcneu. My heart always speeds up as I watch such a sight and realize what it is meaning to our boys out there in the trenches. After an hour of the most brilliant artillery display I have. ever seen we went to bed and tried to sleep, but too many whinning shells passed over head for that. I didn't tell Mrs. Sheppard, the inspector from Boston, who was with us, that the shells were incoming, because it was her first experience un der shell fire and we didn't want to scare her to death. But my sister and I knew what they were. At the same time we were watching just where those shells were landing. Just as dawn was breaking, which is early in France, tle church bell and the klaxons sounded above the noise of bursting shells and we knew a gas at tack was on. Gladys and I donned our masks and then discovered Mrs. Sheppard could not get hers on. Investigation showed she did not have it far enough under her chin, and her nose clip could not find home. Gladys turned on the flash light while I tried to make the clip and Mrs. Sheppard's nose connect. Finally the junction was made, and we realized she was safe and ungassed. Then our relief wanted to vent itself in laughter, and we giggled until we were afraid we would blow off our respirators. I had to dress with my mask on, and it was , , 1 - .i more like an oosiacie race man any thing I have yet attempted. Before long the all-clear signal was given, and we knew the gas was gone, though the guns still sounded all around us. It was now perfectly light,! and we hurried to the kitchen to make a fire and get hot chocolate and food for any wounded w ho might come through. In a short time some boys did arrive, slightly wounded, and well enough to stop a few moments for lw5t French and Americans, resuming their attack this morning, extended the fight ing front between Cambrai and St. Quentin to a1out thirty miles, embrac ing the sector north of Cambrai.
