As he went around to the rear of
the building he saw a shadow on -the
curtain of a room that was brightly
lighted that he thought was that of
his wife. He went up the fire es
cape and peered under the curtain
that was raised a slight distance and
saw his wife dressing and Boles sit

as they left the hotel and then as
they drove down the street. He only
saw her twice more, once in the lat

went on December 3 with a man
named Murray to get his clothes from
his home. Mrs Bullard opened the
door and after asking who Murray
was, spoke insultingly of him. Bul

The American steamship Alcor, 3,

The crew of 35 was saved, said the
message, which came rrom tne iignt
house keeper on an island near the

Five feet of water stood in the

young men of the "gentlemen of
leisure" class and if they refuse to
hunt useful employment immediately
they will be given a chance to work

affect the ' general situation. As the
Germans are fighting against time this
result is a distinct gain to the de
fense. The Germans, it is true, made slight
progress on their left toward Com
piegne, from which, at Melicocq, they
are now only five miles away, but as
did the French on the other wing in
the region of Hery.
As the nature of the ground around
Mery provides the French with ex
Icellent gun positions behind hills
from which they can pound at short
range the road by which all supplies
must pass to the German center in
the thrust toward Compiegne, the
French can claim an advantage on
the day's operations, for they 'also
stopped the German efforts south of
the Aisne against the forest east of
London, June 13 British troops
last night advanced their lines a short
distance on the Flanders front, south
east of Merrins, the war 1 office an
nounced today. The French on this
front likewise improved their posi
tions near the Ridge wood. Prisoners
were taken in both operations.
"A successful daylight raid was
carried out by us yesterday southeast
of Arras," says the war office report.
"Heavy casualties were inflicted on
the enemy. One hostile trench mor
tar was brought back to our lines and
others were destroyed. During the
night local operations were under
taken by us successfully southwe3t of
Merris and east of Dickebusch lake.
"In the former sector our line has
been advanced a short distance with
little cost and a number of prisoners
were taken. In the latter area the
French troops improved their posi
tions in the neighborhood ot the
Ridge wood and captured 30 prison
ers. The Germans at severe cost con
tinue to push down the Matz valley
where an abundance of small woods
afford maximum protection for French
machine guns and artillery, says Reu
ter's correspondent at headquarters,
telegraphing Wednesday. Further
west the French have pursued their
progress on the Mery plateau and
have pushed the enemy off the east
ern slope into the valley.
TAKEN UP BY
New Haven, June 13 A political
state ticket plan under discussion here
today is said to have been brought

London, June 13, via Ottawa
There is a growing tone of optimism
in the English newspapers today as
it becomes more apparent that the
Germans have been checked. The
Teutons certainly compelled the
French to withdraw at the northern
end of the salient on the right bank
of the Oise, including Carpepont wood,
but the French retain the long belt of
territory north of the river Aisne and
it is to threaten this from the rear
that the Germans launched the new
attack south of the Aisne on a very
At the same time, it is pointed out
by military critics, the Germans were
balked in their efforts to reach Com
peigne frontally and they hope to at
tain their object by this outflanking
attack. Compiegne still is 18 miles
west of the new operations, with the
forest of Compiegne intervening.

TO FIND CLUE TO
Up to a late hour this afternoon
the body of the man found under A.
W. Burritt Lumber company's dock
in the Pequonnock river last evening
has not been identified, but Captain

medical examiner and Dr. Weis of the
Emergency Hospital, who was called

white, but the police officials claim
that the man is colored.
The man was attired in a grey shirt,
black trousers and heavy tan shoes,
He wore no hat or coat and a search
of the river bank failed to reveal
either. The only thing which he wore
which could in any way lead to his
identification was a badly worn seal
ring, but the monogram was so worn
that it was impossible to make out

way to indicate foul play and there
is nothing to show that he committed
