ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The British offensive has reached a stage now where further advance is resulting iu violent fighting and heavy loss of men. The Germans, strongly entrenched in their well fortified second and third positions, are offer- ing more (determined resistance to the ousweep of the British. However, still further successes for our troops are being recorded, and the offensive continues. The French are waiting now only for the time when they will tie able to instal their big guns within their newly-formed salient, so that they will be enabled to enfilade Ger- man trenches, and thus pave the way that wo cun road the meaning of the switt uutrch of events toduy. What !s the keynote of these events? It is tho urgency of Germany to get a de- cision before hour for bargaining on equal terms has gone by for ever. "The Kaiser is no longer lighting for victory; he is lighting to escape defeat. Ho is lighting for an instant settlement that will save his dynasty from the ruin that threatens it. 'This is the secret of that astonish- ing struggle at Verdun, which goes on after tho original hope that inspir- ed it has long been dead.

What he is worth re- peating as it will enlighten us as to the situation at the present moment.
