Rcappraisement of -school lands in forty-seven Nebraska counties will be made this summer, according to no tices sent out by Land Commissioner Shumway. Most of it has not been appraised since 1904 and it is expected that a rcappraisement will add con siderably to the school funds. Cherry county has the greatest acreage, 236,391 acres, while Sheridan county comes next with 92,134 acres. The smallest acreage is in Hamilton county, more than seven and one-half acres of Burlington railroad right of way. There is still 181 acres left in Douglas county subject to teappraise-. ment. GERMAN RESERVES . ARE MOWED DOWN Correspondent Described Aw. ful Execution by British Machine Guns. BODIES ARE PILED HIGH witn me British Armies m trance. May 7.) Via London) While the lighting for the last fortnight has wrought comparatively little change geographically along the British front, it has, as a matter of fact, been of al most as great importance as any dur ing the entire war. It has compelled the Germans to throw in such vast mimbcrs of re serves that comparatively few of the fifty of more fresh divisions assigned, to the western front this year by Field Marshal von Hindenbtirg, remain un scorclied by the flames of the French and British. offensive battles. In view of this it is small wonder that the press reports from I'ctrocrail assert that German divisions have been withdrawn from the Russian front and started for Frajice. There is r.o denying that since the British Easier offensive look them bv surprise and drove them from their formidable positions, the Germans have fought with great tenacity and stubbornness, but at what cost they alone can ;orrectly reckon. How Long Can They Endure? They have endeavored to meet the entente allies' superiority in artillery by sheer weight of men, which has meant a material deepening of their fortified zones. Thus when one line of men have been swept away there is another, and yet another. How lonir such tactics can continue, how long the German soldiers can en dure the withering blast of artillery which is ever upon them, is purely a matter of conjecture. German military writers have been referring of late to the Ilndenburg line as a livine. mobile wall, which can bend backward and forward as if moving on so many hinges. Now, however, the men of the living wall are fighting behind great barriers of tneir aeau. The Germans, in fact, seem to be carrying out tileir defensive battles with the same unshakable belief in the power of mass that characterized their first onslaughts upon forts on the Bel gian frontier and later their futile of fensive at inst Verdun. Germans Outnumber the British. The British assaulting lines in the recent fighting, thanks to the over whelming weight of, the artillery be hind them, h v. been in nothing like the strength of the German defend ing troops. Similarly the Germans have deliv ered their counter attacks with forces often outnumbering threefold the '. ritish holding the positions upon which the attacks were directed. The Germans had to make these counter attack across t e open, i dcr the very eyes of the British field guns and the lossi; entailed have been visibly enormous. It is not possible to visit a battery in llu Arrasi section without hearing of the wonderful shooting they have had of late. There haj been nothing like it since the war began, so far as the British are ecu-"o' and the kahki gunners feel that thev are oav ing eff many old scores of the iarly uays wnen tne uerman artillery aomr i -.ted and there was not a single high, calibcred British cannon on the coiv tinent. I he o-c;. oration of the airplanes and artillery in smashing the counter attacks have been uttle short ol mar velous. Sheets of Leaden Shrapnel Rain. c flying machines have quickly discovered the assembling of troops and have sent minute details by wire less back to I e b:. .cr.es with the re sult that the guns were i-nineo and rt dy the moment the gray-clad hordes issued from protecting trees or a village, ':nply. smothering them under hig'i c losives and sheets of leaden shrapnel rain. When it is recalled that, as at Gra vcllc, the have been nearly a score of unsuccessful counter attacks of this character some idea of the German losses can be '. ad. Since the dead left behind tell the tale, great efforts have been made lately by the Ger mans to clear- the battlefields of their dead wherever it is possible to do so. More recently orders have been cap tured on the subject together with one urgent appeal from a company commander that "at least two big wagons be sent immediately to carry away our dead." It is one of the paradoxes of mod ern fighting that fixed positions have actually yielded more readily to di rect attack and have been more eas ily defended against counter attacks than the seini-open warfare shelters dug here and there in new ground. Mown Down is Great Masses. For instanc:, since Thursday last the Germans have been throwing great masses against the Australians in an endeavor to retake a section of the Hindenbtirg line east of Btille- court captured May 3, representing distinct salient, the Australians have been attacked from three sides. During the day the counter attack ers have been killed by artillery and at night have been driven off with bombs and bayonets. The bite into the Hindenburg line by the Australians has meant the al most complete obliteration of a sec tion of this strong position, which formerly ran from Arras to Queant. The capture of Vimy ridge by the Canadians on April 9 left the Arras- Queant position "in the air" and the turning ot the top of that line next day beyond Neuville Vitasse led the Germans to begin the immediate prep- 8 : - B m 3 $Stt YUl 'DEHTIST piiniiiiiffluipiiiin ABOUT SS.WHITE HE will tell you that The S.

I r"- S aration of the so-called Drucouri Queant switch as the new northern extension of the Hindenburg line. The Australian success cast of Bul Iccourt, being a threat against the im portant Queant junction, the Germans naturally are fighting with the utmost determination to offset the latest ad vance and again their losses have been admittedly heavy. In Touch With Hindenburg Line. The British are in touch with the Hindenburg line all the way from Queant south to St. Quentin and are steadily pressing the Germans to ward the Drocourt switch in the north. The Germans apparently are determined not to retire until they are forced to do so. Thus it can be seen that the offen sive, in which great losses are in flicted, are often of more importance than a gain of ground not strongly defended. Some of the more defiant German prisoners profess joy that the rigid immobile trench warfare is over in one breath and then immediately as sert that in the depth of their forti fied zone is their dependence to hold our against the allies. They nonchal antly remark that the German higher command no longer regards the loss of ground as important, on the theory that the possession of this or that isolated terrain no longer plays a de cisive role. " Asked why, then, it is that the Ger mans throw away so many lives in fruitless counter attacks against so called isolated positions wrested from them, the prisoner-officers shrug their shoulders and say that the counter at tacks are intended only to inflict losses upon the British without re gard to whether they win back posi tions rr not. The idea that the operations al ways go according 10 the plans of the higher command has been thorough ly inculcated into the German army. Each loss of a village is lauded in company and regimental orders as an other move toward ultimate victory.
