Ottawa, April 20.-The following franalatlon of a wiblegrrim received by the Belgian consul here was iMsued to the Canadian Press today: "Belgian Front, April lit.-(From an eyewltn^IIB.)--The operation attempted by the Gernians on tlie front be-]/tween KIppe and Langernarck resulted in a complete failure as shown by doeumsnts found in the'p'osanssion of citptured officers. These orders reveal the importance attached by the Germans to the operation which had been under preparation since April 11. The Germans were to take Merckheni, Ijuygheni. Assehoop, Lungcwaade and Bieschooto, and were to reach the YK(!r Canal, west of Ypres in the direction of Poperingho to envelop the loft of the alliss. The Belgians took 71-1 prisoners, a 77mra gun, two bomb throwing machines and 4;{ machine guns. Their line being entirely reestablished on the evening of April 17, the German attack annoiniccd by captured officers could not ho delivered. "The Belgian artillery displayed great spirit and accuracy and tho artillery observers showed admirable courage. For instance, two observ-erK_ on being surroiiTided, (lushed through the enemy lines killiiiff several Germans and bringing in eight prisoners. Tho infantry magnificently resisted an attack by a greatly superior force. "Tho Asschoop post was passed by the First German waves at S.,'10 a.m. surrounded and violently attacked. The petition way,, however, maintained until two p.m. wiion the men were relieved by a Belgian counter attack. The Belgian reserve troopi attacked singing and waving helmets to Belgian airmen who were flying as low as IfiO feet, shelling Germans at the time. Flying machines on returning looked like sieves. "The Germans did not win an inch of territory, but they suffered heavy losses in prisoners, wounded and killed. Those men belonged to four different divisions three Of which v.'ore picked units."

What the Press Agents Say AT THE EiViluesS Edgar Lewis, known in moving picture cirtdos as "The Master Pro-ducoi*," is tlie man wJio made "The Sign invisible," whicli is to be shown id tho Empre.sK Tlieairo Monday.

He mentions tlio latter two occupations together. lie soon fought liis way to tiio front after he broke into the Picture Business, wliicii was at a time when nerve and force were as important as dn-oc-torial perquisites as brains. That he has the latter is jiroven by the fact that he is perhaps the only director in the industry who is at present working entirely on liis own capital. Ho credits his wife-"my pardner" lie calls her-with much of his financial success, for during tlie years he worked on a salary-and it must have been a good one-she took care of it while he earned it.
