Newapaper Comment Tjondou, April 18. -1 Via Reutc's Ottawa Agencyt-There Is a some what more cheerful note in the newspapers today following the reports that the British are counter attack-ipg and indications such as the Uer-man attack at Uobecq tliat the enemy Is diverting bis main effort farther south, again threatening Bethune, This is probably due to the tact that ^ Prenrh reinforcemonli are coming I Info the line, but there is still anxiety ; as to when (ieneral Koch will make ' the dpclalve stroke now that the British have stood four weeks of hammering by the immerse Herman re serves, estimated at tJO.Oini men, in a fashion which led ihe French writ era to describe the Britisii armies as the "Wing of sacrifice " Kxperts do not endorse the opinion advanced in some quarters that the advance, critical in the northern theatre, has been defini'-ely cl'.cckcd. Ii is agreed thai the Cerm:ins liave not obtained the decisive nsnlt altned at, thanks to the exireme slubborniuKs of the British rciislance ihe battle, in fact, appears to have been following the course of the great series of (lerman thrusts of t)ctoher. 11*14, which ended In Ypres and failure for the enemy There was then no allied reserve. That reserve now exists I and has not yet been used. There . probably will be continuous fluctua-' lions In the northern area for some i time to come, but the .salient fact of the fighting is the staying power of the British soldier He lias withstood the severest tests for a month. And the frequency wherewith the enemy baB been repulsed at various points, and Is now being counterattacked, is the healthiest sign. Won l.s>st Pet. I.oiijs . . .\�-V.'

By nlgbl the sky line is somotimes a lurid blaxe as conHiiuiing flames leap up from a hundred homes and great cannon vomit volcanic fire. It Is it living hell. It Is a part of hcretoforn untouched Flanders going the way of Ilie devastated regions of the Somme and so the gentle peasant folk stand and look or wander on. As they go they cannot lomprohond It. Us uw has numbed their brains. Sad Spectacle Tho correspondent found a llftld family group crouching beneath hiigo British howitzers hold in reserve. Their eyes were fastened on the mounting columns of amoke which rose from the village whence they came. There were no tears and no words but the expression on their faces was like that of one Just condemned to die. Why they stopped healde the great guns was unexplained. Possibly it was bei ause it gave them a sense of protection from dangers out beyond Many of the refugees know only in a general way whither they go: they are following the lead of military guides like sheep fleeing from a storm A few cherished belongings are all they carry with them, and they cling to these desperately as their last remaining possessions. Double Terror Hundreds of Flemish homes hav4 been shorn of their protectors who have been called to the French colors, and for those It is a time of double terror Some of the peasants, indeed, clung lo Ibeir cottages amidsl the cra-shing of .sheila until the sol dter.s led them away .Some have died by their .)wn liearths before they could be removed. There were many pitiful cases of homes in which there were hed-rid-den invalids, whom their friends had no means of removing without help from the soldiers. Pitiful Catca It was only yeaterday that a British official photographer, who wan recording the lilstory of the war on his films, discovered an helpless paralytic lying in a house which had alreaily been partly wrecked by shells. Tim invalid had no relatives and hi.t friends, who had looked after him, were' dead or cut off from him. So, the photographer, with the asslstan<'c of a soldier, carried the man to safety though their road lay thiYiugh what might have been a horrible death RC any moment. Thla is one incident among many. .Many linio.s there Is no way of saving valuable.') of bulk In towns whl< ii came first under the fire of the German troops.
