THREE MILES FROM BAUPAUME Unofficial dispatches indicate that the British advance has carried the battle line up to a point three miles from Baupaume, reputed to be an important (iermar. base In. the Picardy sector. If the British drive conftnues'along the northern side of the Picardy salient, the enemy forces farther south'would be in'a serious position. They are at present keeping back the French and British along a line west of and parallel to the Somme and north of that river they have been desperately resisting allied attacks as far north as Albert. The new advance oeema to have placed the northern sector of the enemy's front in great danger. / In the Flanders battle area the Germans also aro under heavy pressure. Last night an attack was made from Festubert to the Lawe River, a distance of more than four miles. The village of La Tpuret, in thR middle of this line has been captured. This, marks an advance of , nearly a mile at this point. . On the northern side of the Lys salient the British made a local. attack over a mile front near Locre this morning. The important Dranoutre .. Ridge has been taken from the enemy and the Locre Hospice, a group of Huildlngs which has been the kcene of frequent and terrific fighting since April, has been attacked. '. FRENCH PROGRESS French progress on the vital sector between the Oiae and Solitona ' bids fair to bring about a cracking of the German offensive system from Ypres to Rheims. Marshal Poch ha* connected his Marne and Picardy successes with a new triumph which appears to be a greater threat than either of the" others. . In the new operations between the Aisne,and the Oise, the French have ga'ined the heights and are advancing raoidly toward the Olae and the supply lines connecting Laon and other base* with the Noyon pocket, in two daya General Mangin has advanced more than two and a half miles on a front of more than fifteen miles. The Olse railway line paralleling It, are but three miles away and the French apparently securely hold all the Important high ground which ha|d barred the way to Noyon and the line of the Oise. If Marshal Foch can push the advance to the north of the Olse it would ^ appear Inevitable that the German* must retire in Picardy, probably to the old Hindenburg line and withdraw from the Vesie at least to the Chemin Des Dames. With tlie French north of the Olse these enemy positions would be outflanked. \ 10,000 PRISONERS THREE DAYS. Berlin reports that it anticipated a French attack north of the Aisne and the Germans are reported to have prepared for a counter attack, but the French surprised them and gained on Tuesday a half score of villages and captured 8.000 prisoners, bringing their total for the three days to lO.uOO. The German War Office says that the French attack failed. ,' French Attack. L.ondon.
