fire, gave them possession of more
territory than' they had retaken from
the , Germans since the latter dug
themselves in after the battle of the
Marne. - - '
According to the French, the Ger
mans were driven out of their
trenches over a front of fifteen miles
varying in depth from two-thirds of
a mile to two and a half miles. The
French in the engagement captured
twelve thousand prisoners
The importance of this gain lies in
the fact that every yard of ground
taken in this region weakens the
German position around Verdun,
from which the Germans might be
compelled to retire should the
French make a further advance.
The French have regained trenches
east of the "labyrinth" in the Arras
district, which was the scene of
much heavy fighting earlier in the

With nectar pure his oozy locks he

And hears the unexpressive nuptial

Ti.e above words of Milton as he
bewails a learned friend, express my
thoughts as I think of the death of
my dear friend and former school
mate, Seid Waddell, Jr. This par-
ticular poem was a favorite of his
when we were students, together in
the Union City Training School, and
could well be applied to the life of
one so talented as Seid.
I never associated with a nobler
man, always the same fellow, ever
quiet and unassuming, as modest as
a lady, he had high ideals and
definite principles which he lived up
to. Wewere in college together for
two years , and there his literary
work, w'hich had its ' beginning in
the Training School paper, "The
Lanterne,";c' began show great
promise. He . was compared to the
immortal Riley by a number of the
Vanderbilt University critics., Both
his poetry and prose work showed
deep thought and marked ability.
He was a jgreat lover of nature and
could describe her beauties in a way
peculiarly Ms own. His work show

capture of Riga before winter is the
object of the Teuton forces. The

Mackensen, and the latter has been

4,000 prisoners were taken when the

A band of Mexican raiders who
attacked the general store at Pro
gresso, Tex., looted and set fire to
it, killed an American soldier and
wounded Capt. A. V. Anderson, were
protected by rifle fire from in
trenched comrades as they made
their escape across the border pur
sued by American cavalry. The
outbreak is regarded as the most
serious since raiding parties began
to cross the Rio Grande.
The State Department was notified
that the British Ambassy was pre

Greece has ordered the mobiliza
tion of her naval and military forces,
caiiia? it a "measure of elementary
prudence." Thus the action of Bui
garia in making military prepara
tions has brought the last Balkan
State under arms. What plans
Bulgaria has in mind and what
Greece and Rumania will do when
these plans mature are still matters
for speculation.
Official statements have been given
out saying that Bulgaria plans no ag
gressive action, and the Bulgarian Pre
mier has been quoted as saying that no
steps are contemplated against Greece
and Rumania. The fact that he omitted
Serbia leads to the belief that the Bul-
gars are planning an attack on that na
