AMERICANS PAVES FOR NEW DRIVE London, Aug. 1.-Yesterday was a day ot sheer, hard-in-and-out lif/ating on the American front, telegiapiis Iieuter's correspondent on the front nonh of tlie Marue. He says thii*. the linal capture ot Serlnges by Mm Am c-i 'cans -.vas an especially cro,Ut:ible nchievemort. Since the Americans toolc the ^illago on Monday the Germans mad.) r,o in-lantry attack on the place, but kept up a constant artillery and machine gun tire to drive them out. This continued all Tuesday and toward evening the enemy seemed to think that the spirit ot Uie defenders might possibly be broken and then they began to emerge from the Neslea Forest In a way that seemed to forecast a fresh aftempt to take, the village.- Of the fight which ensued the correspondent �writes: "The Americans, after three days of to and fro fighting through villages had learned sublety and were determined to have a real fight to a finish. They consequently withdrew as if retiring from Seringes and the Germans crept down from their high ground convinced they had their opponents beaten. Additional German troops came poilring ^in until the town was occupied as it never had been before. "But as the new occupants began to organize their defenses they found tliat bullets appeared to te coming in from three sides of the village and it was not long before they dlsrover-�3'i lliat the Americans, -while with-ir.iwlDg from the front u'. th& town, h^i commenced an encr.^Mng move-ment on both sides, thus forming a fling almost completely, around it.  "Then came' tragic fighting. The Prussian Guards bad voted not to surrender and their opponents' were just as anxious to see the thing through. Jt was an affair of small arms, but the 'Americans proved to be better shots and slowly picked off men here and there. . "Then the Americans began to advance and slowly their encircling ring closed abo;it the village. As the ring drew closer and the defenders saw ;their doom, approaching, they doubled itheir flre,'')'Jt rIHI the' Americans ,came unfalteringly like a storm or I the unav:^idab!e stroke of fate. "When the Amerlcap.a� reached the precfncts of the vJIJa�e their'fire ceased and with one' wild' yell they cUsed with the foe! The flerpe-uproar suddenly gave place to a strange silence aa man grappled with man. Only tho slash ut steel on iitocl and the grrans of 'he- F.trlcken could be heard. "The Issue never, was in doubt for instant. At this kind ot fighting the American Is more than equal to any Prussian Guardsman, and in a little more than ten minutes all was over. "Except for a tew German prisoners, every German In the village had breathed his last. Such was the final capture ot Seringes. "During the night the enemy twice attempted to retake Sergy, but each time he was repulsed with heavy losses. i Then he made a fierce assault on -Meurcy, east of Seringes, which was piled with dead which he had left there the day before when every man defending it died at his post. There again the enemy waa unsuccessful, though not until steel had crossed steel in the big farmyard and the heaps o! German slain had bedn doubled in the ruins about it. "This was classic fighting indeed, man against man and the better to win. There w-as no call for quarter. The pride ot the professional soldier was up against the pride ot the free man, both preferring death to surrender. "Later in the morning the fighting extended still farther eastward and in every case the Germans who attacked were annihilated. Later came the attack on Seringes and an attempt at the same time to drive the allies from Hill 187, west of Seringes. "There for the first time since the allies crossed the Ourcq the Germans may be said to have detinitely taken the offensive. "All through the day's fighting the enemy's airplanes attempted iii the most daring manner to assist in the battle.^ Early in the morning six enemy planes succeeded in penetrating as far as the La Croix Blanche Farm near La Fere Forest. They swooped down close above the roads in the valley and fired upon allied troops. "Members of the Prussian Guard who were taken prisoners state that their orders were to hold tho line at all costs and well they obeyed. AU three of their battalions apparently were in the ling on this memorable day, which ended everywhere in victory tor the allies, although there was no great gain "of ground. "During the following night ground near.Seringee was . captured by, the Ajnerlcans. The advance will make it possible tor the troops in this sector to join hands with the conquerors of Sergy and Seringes."

Has Nothing to Say Yet- May Manage Big New Mine Is Mayor Hardie considering handing over the magisterial reins of the city of Lethbridge? ,A somewhat persistent rumor to that effect has been going the rounds for the past ten days. Several close friends of the mayor confess having heard it.- The Herald asked the mayor this morning whether there is any truth in the rumor. The reply was a smile and the statement: "I have, nothing to eayat the present time. When I do, I will say it to the council." The rumor is to tho effect that Mayor Hardie is preparing to resign his office to take up the management of a new coal mine which is to be developed in the i^ethbridge field.
