Many Prisoners Taken—Allies Push

LONDON British and French
troops attacked on a twenty-mile
front Monday, following the most ter
rific artillery fire ever reported, and
captured the first three lines of Ger
man trenches between the River Lys
and Boesinghe.
Ten villages and more than 3,500
prisoners were taken.
Losses on the allied side were re
ported to be very light, while the Ger
man losses were described as extreme
ly heavy.
Late reports said the Germans had
begun a counter attack at the point
where the French and British forces
join.
PARIS —Late Tuesday it was report
ed chat the Germans were counter at
tacking at the point of junction of the
French and British forces.
Six Bavarian divisions were with
drawn and replaced as they were de
moralized by the inferno of fire. At
one point the British charged through
their own barrage fire to prevent the
escape of fleeing Germans.
PARIS The Entente forces which
launched their offensive have advan
ced well beyond the shell-shattered
front-line German trenches. In many
places they have reached the second
line defenses on a twenty-mile front of
attack.
The British and French troops went
into battle under cover of what per
haps was the greatest barrage fire
ever seen during the war.
The Entente artillery is moving for
ward and the whole situation is satis
factory in every particular.
Three lines of German trenches
were captured by the British forces.
Most of the points stormed were be
tween Boesinghe and Warneton.
French and English Unite.
A vast British force, augmented by
French troops at dawn launched
against the army of Crown Prince
Rupprecht of Bavaria, between Dix
mude on the north and Gapaard, near
Warneton, on the south, a terrific of
fensive which, according to the early
reports, had carried the onrushing al
lies well beyond the shell-shattered
front line trenches of the Germans
throughout this approximately twenty
mile front, and in many places had
reached the second line defenses.
Both the French and British had
achieved all the first objectives and
the artillery was moving forward with
schedule precision and the whole situ
ation was satisfactory in every par
ticular.
In numerous places the Entente al
lies encountered strong resistance and
counter attacks from the desperate
Teutons.
Between Dixmude and Boesinghe
the attacking forces are reported to
have secured the two first lines of the
German trenches after having fought
over the most difficult terrain imagin
able due to marshes and inundated
areas with which the section is block
ed.
The German front line about the
Ypres salient which had been held un
questioned by the enemy since the
early days of the war offered little re
sistance to the British advance, but
beyond these trenches the Germans
made a firm stand in an 'endeavor to
stem the onslaught.
British Retake La Basseville.
The British again captured La Bas
seville, on the Franco-Belgian frontier,
which a few days age they had occu
pied and then relinquished. The Ger
mans made a heavy counter attack
here in an attempt to regain the posi
tion, but the British flung them off and
began consolidating the ground w r on.
Many prisoners already are finding
their way back of the allied lines.

CORUNNA, SPAIN The Ger
man submarine ÜB-23 anchored in the

stead with only her periscope emerg
ing from the water.
The submarine had been damaged
seriously, but the commander and
crew refused to tell the causes of the
accident. The underwater boat anchor

the war.

RUSSIAN ANARCHISTS
PERIL LIFE OF ROOT
Attempt to Wreck and Burn U. S.
Envoy's Train.
TOKYO —An attempt to wreck
or burn the train on which Elihu Root,
head of the American mission to Rus
sia, was riding, was made by an
archists .at Viatka station, in Siberia,
according to travelers from Russia ar
riving here.
Bridges ahead of Root’s train were
set afire just as Root was entering Si
beria. The train was stopped before it
reached the burning structures and
was delayed for thirty hours while the
damage was being repaired.
Then, as Root was about to start
again, Viatka station and storehouse
were set afire and the blaze spread to
the railway coaches there.
Three trains were burned and the
Root train was threatened, but the
American mission escaped.
Mrs. Gregory Mason of New York
declared that after the storehouse and
coaches caught fire, blazing cars were
pushed down the tracks to the wind
ward of the Root train, so that the
breeze carried the flames directly
against the train the American mis
sion occupied. The coolness of the en
gineer of Root’s train saved the mis
sion. As the blazing cars approached,
he backed his cars rapidly out of dan
ger.

Most Buoyant Wood.
The lightest wood known, so far as
any evidence attainable is concerned,
is balsa wood, which grows extensive
ly in the Central American and north
ern South American states. It is com
posed of very thin walled cells, which
are barrel shaped, interlace with each
other and are almost devoid of woody
fiber. These cells are filled with air,
making a natural structure well adapt
ed to prevent the transmission of heat
because of the particles of air impris
oned in the material without intercon
necting fibers. Various tests of the in
sulating properties for resisting the
flow of heat have been made. Balsa
wood has been used quite extensively
in the past as a buoyancy product for
life preservers and in connection with
the fenders of lifeboats and rafts. Its
life is short, under ordinary conditions,
unless treated with antiseptic or pre
servative material.
Ariake Bay’s Mystic Fire.
Shiranubi, the mystic fire of Ariake
bay, Kyushu, has been famous for the
past 2,000 years, the sight being con
sidered one of the great wonders of the
Japan seas.
- In a recent issue of the Taiyo Maga
zine M. Kaneko, a teacher in the Shi
mabara middle school, relates his im
pressions of the fire. According to Mr.
Kaneko, when Tie witnessed the spec
tacle the first light appeared like a star
about five miles distant. Suddenly the
volume of light increased until it soon
covered an area of many miles. The
light moved with the waves and re
sembled electric lights being lighted
and then suddenly extinguished. Mr.
Kaneko says that intermittent wave
like movements are the chief charac
teristics of the mystic fire. He fails
to find a cause for the origin of the fire.
Salt and Toothbrushes.
Our dentist tells us a very interest
ing thing. Ordinary salt is one of
the best methods for sterilizing tooth
brushes that are known. But not only
because it sterilizes is it so excellent,
but because it has the effect of soften
ing the bristles and making them ex
pand in a way. One of the troubles so
frequently met with is that the bristles
come out and are swallowed, causing
appendicitis. The salt causes the bris
tles to swell and so remain in the
brush. This may be but another of
the several million theories. It is im
portant, however, that bristles do cause
appendicitis.—New York Globe.
Jshe Cheorn of A
Colored Roof
The right kind of a roof adds two or
three hundred dollars to the value of
_ even a small house. A good architect
knows that the lines and color of a roof
make or spoil the beauty of a building.
AsphaJt Shingles
add color to the roof. They won’t fade and are
fireproof. They last for years and will not need
repairs. If you are planning a home, be sure to
investigate Asphalt Shingles.
