There are ovldcncos the enemy's retreat from the Ijys Ballcnl Is being accelerated, the British having takpn the station of BalUcuU as well as Mount Llllo to the east, and being In posaesaion of the bank of the Lawe River from yiellechnpcllo to Le.gtroin on the southern side of the salient. In certain vital sectors of this battle area the British have gained from one to two miles during the last day. While there is every evidence that allied pressure against the Gorman ilnoa from Solssons to Arras conlln-uos, tlio desperate attempt of the enemy to cover his retreat seems to have brought about a pause for the mom on t. At only two points-southeast of Arras and northwest and north of Peronne-have the allied forces moved ahead. North of Cambral Road In the former sector north of the Arras-Cambrai j*oad, the British have occupied the St. Sorvlna Farm, close to tho highway and have moved Into the village of Etorplgny to tho north-oast. This village Is on the east batik of tho Sensoe River and Its capture marks tho passage of that small but important waterway at a vital point. Counter attacks delivered in consid-crablo force compelled tho British to withdraw from BuUocourt and Hend-cscourt but there is little to Indicate that the Oocuiaris' have decided to nrakc a stand here. Take Cicry The British official statement says that the town of Clery, which is on the Somme to the"' northwest of Peronne, has been taken from the Ger-iiinns, but llont St. Quontin, a mile and II halt north of Peronne, has been captured by tho British, This report woulil Indicate that Peronne Is being surrounded by tho British, who had forced their way across th� 9ommo to tlie south of Peronne yesterday. There Is hard fighting going on north of Solssoua. Anjerican and French troops striving to capture tho high plateau that dominates ibo Alsne and Allotto Valleys and also endeavoring to force their way further onward toward Coney t^e Chateau, an Important concentration point between the Disc and tho Allctte. The Oornians are fighting hard In this sector and appear to have chocked the allies for tho llmo being. (AsHOclatod Press) With Iho Drillsh Forces In France, Aug, 'M.-South of Uapamnc hard fighting continues and more 'ground lias been captured by the British. Between Bapaume and the Sonime the British are attacking near Marrlens Wood, which Is strongly lield by tlie enemy. In the north tho recent British KUccoB.Hos Iiavo apparently caused the Germans to start a withdrawal extending roughly from the neighborhood of Kemmel through tho region of Bethu^ie and thlr morning the British lines appeared to be progressing rapidly on the heels of the enemy. Baltlcul Is now completely In British hands and patrols are on Mont De Lille. The advancing British also have apparentl)^! reached points well to the east of La Couture and Vielle Chapelle. Patrols are reported to be in Dran outre and on the Schorpenburg front, southwest of Vpres, enemy trenches running through Brie and extending both to the north and the south are strongly held by the Germans, indicating that at least for a time the enemy intends to try to hold on to the east bank of the elver. ^ -  Bunded after lieatcd argument about thoir duty to Iho fathorland, to which some of the men openly retorted: 'To hell with the fatherland." " Horrible Lossea. Terrific losses continue to bo Inflicted on the Germans. The Germans on a large section of the front to the east of Bapaume have not had hot food for three days because British bombs smashed a large number of their travelling kitchens. Bush Fighting. With the French Army In France-Machine guns have been placed on every point of vantage by Iho Germans and tho afruggle has become a sort of bush righting.

REMEMBER THE DATE PHONE 770 Sunshine Furnace Efficiency MrClary slraicht walled fir�iKit-no osUts to abiorb beat. The test of furnace efiiciency is the volume of heat it conserves for actual use, from the heat generated in burning your tiiel. There is a fixed volume of heat in every kind of fuel, whether it is wood, soft coal or anthracite. The business of your furnace is to extract all the heat, which aU furnaces do-and to conserve the maximum of it for use-which the Sunahin* furnace doas. The Sunshine semi-steel Arepot is built with atraifht walls-not sloping to form and hold a non-conducting deixisit of ashes. A very important point in furnace efficiency. The grates of the Sunshine funiace are equal in area to the firepot, so that fresh oxygen-without which proper combustion is.. JnipossiWe-flows to every part of the fire all the tkne. Ail air passages are exactly proportioned so that neither too much nor too Utile air passes over the radiator- there can be no superheated air, nor any tinder heated air, sent to the rooms above, � The doors, draf (s and dampers are machined to fit smigly and to exclude heat-wasting air currents from the ^.u.i siopinr".u"B�^i: outside. niaD|a:tor�(bn�>i��t>li)(ht�t.
