The British have re entered the village of St. Julien, while French forces drove in beyond th Korteker cabaret, moving their lines forward, while their patrols pushes' back German outposts and explored considerable areas la advance of the French positions. Renewal of the great battle awaits favorable weather. It Is believed the allied drive near ths Belgian coast Is aimed at the German submarine bases. The situation on the Russian front, from northern Gallcia to ths Carpa thians, continues favorable to tbs armies of the central powers, bu tho Russians, although symptsms of con tinuing low morale are still noted, ap pear on the whole to bs offering a slit ter defense, particularly along ths eastern Gallctan border.

Evidently the theory of the Federal Trade Commission and the Coal Exchange committee of the Ohio branch of the Counci of National Defense in regard to coal pric38 is that the con sumer was robbed so out rageously last winter that he will gratefully submit to a slight reduction in the toll to be exact ed this coming winter. In ac cepting a price of $5.50 to $0.50 a ton as "fair" to the consumer these price-iixing agencies of the state and federal govern ment are following a policy com parable to that of the justice who acquits a thief for stealing a hundred dollars on the prom a ise that his next theft will be only fifty. There is absolutely no justifi cation for the "basic price" of $3.00 to $3.50 for Ohio coal at the mines.

EXPLODING SOME LITTLE WHITE LIES Mr. and Mrs. Christ AlthoiT, North Water street, experienced no small cause for rejoicing Saturday morning when they received a letter from their son Otto, of whom they had not heard for a month or so, or since he cinbarke dwith a consignment of United States soldiers for France. Rumors had been set afloat to the effect that the transport on which he and his companions were carried had ben sent down by a German submar- ne. The lette rexplains the situa tion and contains a most cheerful tone for others who may have enllst- d In Uncle Sam's service or perhaps who have been drafted to the colors. Mr. Althoc has kindly given permis sion for the publication of the letter whlc his here reproduced. "Dear parents. Will now try to write you a line from France. We arrived safely and to me it was an interesting trip. As all news is cen sored and I am not allowed to write all details, I dare not say more about our (rip. Iam still well and happy. So far Icannot regret joining the army. If aWlter perhaps has to go, I do not think he will care so much after he gets use dto It. At first it may suem a little queer, but he will soon like It.

In this cosnectlon it might be well to caution certain parties regarding the freedom with "which unfounded rumors are carried about. Not a few had been reporting with ab solute certainty that Otto Althoff had been sent to the bottom the the sea, without a word of foundaion. An other rumor was floating around in this sectin concerning the case f a young Birkmyer at Coldwater, who as a member of the federal forces in New York had met death acciden tally when a pleasure skiff upset, con taining him, asd several companions. Without cause for foundation a rum or was sent out that Birkmyer had mjet death during a mutiny among the soldiers if his regiment, that the bul'.et wiun dhad been discovered on the body before permanent burial was made. The truth has been es tablslhed that the body if the young man was drogged from the water in the presence of a Delphos relative him and no 8T90$.. 890? ..890? and accompanied to Coldwater by him, and that no examination of the remains was made after the arriv ing al its destination.
