Germans Say British Fell At Loos At Rale Of 100 Men Per Second Berlin. Germany, Oct. 22 (b wireless to Tuckerton. N. J.) The Tages Zei tung says that during one period of the great battle at Loos last month the British fell at the rate of 10 men a second. "The British attacked in dense rows of eight sections," says the Overseas News Agency in a resume of the Tages Zeitungs dispatch. "The attack pre sented a spectacle like that of a Napo leonic battle. The British artillery came up as far as possible without being in the range of German rifles. It was equipped with bridges designed to ena ble the artillery forces to cross Ger man trenches. The artillery was ac companied by cavalry. A captured British general says it was excellent spot. "The British advanced with admira ble braverj Suddenly they were checked by -the German fire, and 100 men fell each second. The British did not even reach the German trenches.
