THE WAR As predicted in last week’s review of war progress, the Americans, aid ed by French forces, wiped out the strong St. Mihiel salient and took over 20.000 German and Austrian prisoners. It was one of greatest Allied victories of the war. This week the British furnlsed the thrill, when in their work of Invest ing St. Quentin, they captured 12,000 German prisoners and a large num ber of heavy guns. The British and French are closldg in on Cambrel and St. Quentin. During the week the Americans rested up a bit after their St. Mihiel victory. Tiieie are indications that Marshal Foch is about to turn the British First Army loose in Flanders and the American in Alsace. During the week, the reorganised Serbian army, aided by French and British divisions, delivered smash ing blows against the Bulgarians on the Macedonian front. Germany's latest peace move, made through Austria, was con temptuously turned down by Wash ington. It will meet the same fate in London and Paris. A Troop Train Wrecked Last Tuesday night, a bad wreck occurred on the Frisco Line, near Springfield, Mo., went a freight ran into a troop train. According to re port, eleven soldiers and three train men were killed and over forty in injured. The soldier boys were mostly from Colorado. Among the names of the injured we notice the names of James L. Vaughn of Maybell, and Melton A. Taylor of Axisl. The latter is a brother of Mrs. Kirk Shaw's of thlr place. Getting What is Coming to Them The Germans have started the use of practically every helliah and In human device employed in tills war* - and they are eating the bitter fruit of their own starting. In the Pipp let ter which we are pullshlng the fact is brot out that the Germans used gas at first not counting the cost in the end. The wind blows from the west in France much more than from the east and this gives the Allies the advantage in the use of gas; also the Germans are short of rubber aud it. takes rubber to make good gas masks. For these reasons the Huns were wil ling to give up the use of gas. A news report states that on July ir» the French used gas on the Germans in such great quantities that two di visions were practically destroyed and the gas was so strong that it kill ed the vegetation where the Germans were camped—Hayden Republican Just American Just today we chanced to meet— Down upon the crowded street; And I wondered whence he caine, What was once his nation's name. 8o I asked him, "Tell me tiue. Are you Pole or Russian Jew, English, Scotch, Italian, Russian. Belgian, Spanish. Bwiss Moravian. Dutch or Greek or Scandinavian" Then he raised his head on high, As he gave me this reply: “What I was is naught to me. In this land of Liberty. In my soul as mam to man, I am Just American." -•Author Unknown Knight - Campbell Representative Comes to Meeker Mr. P. J.
