F. B. Livosay, Canadian Press correspond-, ent,):-The Canadian troops crossed the Oermjn border today, tlie first Canadiau "division at Poleu and another Canadian'divisioh further south. It was, raining, and the rolling, hills and forest of Ardennes, the home- of the wild bird and stag, were swathed, In fog. Just across the' frontier, which was oUierwise unmarkedj is a post, resembling, with its black aiid white stripings, a barber's pole. Beside this is the German custom house,' where still its uniformed officer pr6-sides. : Gen. Currle, corairaandei: of ' the Canadian corps, who crossed the frontier unofficially yesterday, was acr, companied by his 'staff. Including Prince Arthur of Connaught, who has' returned to his duties with the Canadian corps, and the general officer commanding our 1st Dlvisiion with his staff. The Canadian light horse furnished. �an escort, and the infantry, which was j the first to pass the saluting point,' was the 3rd Battalion, of Toronto, followed by the Ist Baittsiriou, j boundary line. The first men to pas^j him marched to the tune of the Maple Leaf. It wa�- a wonderful sight. The, outward and visible sign of victory, j so hardly won after four years of j battle. The battalions, swinging along in time, eager, confident, ^disciplined, had fought their way from Yprep'to^ the Bomme, from Vimy through Pas-schendaele, back to Amiens and then from Arras to Cambrai and Valenciennes to, Mons, They began their long march through the Belgian plain and thence-had climbed steadily up 'and'up over the 'lielght ot land.Th^y have suffi^red deprivation and' dis-, comfort, but they bring with them the' same conquering $plrit 'that parried^ them through "bitter years of -trench? warfare. A better, finer lot of men were never seen. One's heart rose to see them go ,by. Canada triumphant upon her march to .the Rhine.. . , The Canadian engineers .received instructions to lay out a defence line ifor the Canadians in front of our bridgeheads on the east bank of the, Rhine; Some of the signallers who had ^penetrated deeper "Into' German territory to take, over the telegraphs and telephones reported an almost, obsequious; disposition on Jthe part.of the enemy to put'every. facility at our ; diBposal;:' Vigilance, however, will no.t be .relaxed for one minute. We are taking no chances, as was shown today*, when, for the first time, infantry escorts accompanied the batteries. . -  In the selfsame chateau occupied by the Canadiau corps commander the German crown prince' lay hid i during the nnomentoua days before tlie I signing of the armistice. It was-then ' that he was reported assassinated on the Dutch border, and it was only after the armistice was signed that he left and (made good his getaway Into Holland. .- .

When Informed that many of the occupied districts were in virtually u starving condition and that aid was being rushfed to the imppverlshed people, he expressed much surprise. The mortality, he said, through tuberculosis increased 300 per cent, in Cologne, and the infection from tuberculosis was much greater than this due to under-nourishment and other war causes. The German retirement has had the effect ot stopping traffic while Uie troop movement is oijs, a,nd it.appears impossible to get food ilito jtlie city. The troops have established themselves in various parts of the. city and along the banks of the Rhine without untoward incident, The bridges over the Rhlne^^ were the meeting points of the two. forces, the British holding two bridges on each side and the Ger-in(ans the Remainder. ; Armed; British and German soldiers were maintaining beats over their sections and every tew moments meeting gravely at tjie dividing line, British maQhine guns, however, cov-orbd" the entire crossing.
