PEMBROKE HAS ANOTHER BAD FlUE Pembroke, Ont, July 15.-Start-Ino where the conflagration of June fifteen raaed. Pembroke this mornlna had anothor disastrous fire visitation, Involving a loss of $300,000, In which Is Included one of the town's most Imfiortant Industries, the plant of the Thomas Pink Company, Limited, munitions manufacturers. The damage to this firm's premises Is estlmatsd at $250,000. than elsewhere. In splto of the re. pulBO ot tho Gormann before Rholms l-early In June, it may he that the allied Una eastward from ChatOftU-thl-brry had been more thinly hUld than that from ChatoauTlilerry north to the Alone and thonce through tho Plo-ardy sector to Vproa. Gorman aStauUlnK troops might thus expect to onoountur less rea.stance m tho sectors east ot Chateau-Thierry and tho Germans poflslbly hoped tor galn6 which would compel an allied retirement from tho Vordun and St. MlMel sectors. Tho north banlc or the Marno Is held by tho Germans for a distance ot about twenty-five miles-oast of ChOr teau-Thlerry. A .succosstul attack In tho Rhelms sector mteht force the allies to fall back on tho Marno still further east and give tho Gormanfl command ot the communication system by which the I'Vonrh and American Amiens on the road to tho channel ports, believed to be the main object ot the whole Gorman plan, was tho subject ot Intoroslert speculation.i Employment ot heavy artilieny to batter towns and communications far - ,,,1.1.., , , beyond the doience lines, indicated that ''o�P8 f Verdun and St. Mih el are tho delayed grand offensive has opened. '� Official reports roiativo to the grand o-'tcnslvo begun this morning agalnot tho allied positions shov/ that it is tho most nmb'.tlous stroko since March 21, when tho Germans launchod thoir offensive against tho Brlt'sh lines from tho vicinity ot Arras to La Fere. The front in the' March 21 ottefislvo was reported Xa he about 55 miles In length. Tho one over which tho Germans are attacking today la approximately fifty miles from Chutoau Thi-orry, o;i the west to Messlges, In the Champagne, in the oast. Tho Germans followed thcrlr most rocent tactics of beginning an offensive, There was a brief artillery pro-paratlon of the greatest violence and then came the advance of assault troops. A New Feature. There Recms, however, to have been a nov/ leaturo In tliis attack. Great naval giins had boon broti^ht up behind the enemy linos and tov/ns and cities tar behind the actual battle are nov; under bombardment. *rho violence of this cannonade is evidenced by tho fact that Iho city of.Menux, 25 | miles v/est ot Chateau-Thierry waa I under �riru ot groat projectiles during tho night. Tho "apparent purpose ot tho Germans In attacking along the line from Chateau-Thierry caet along Mame oyer Lho rolling hills to Rholms and thoaco eastward to .Massiges, was similar to that In the great attack along the Alsno lato in JIay. They Gvidenlly hoped to find the allies loss well prepared in this sector supplied with food and munitions. In this district Is tho olty ot Chalons, which Is reputed to bo an important centre. It is approximately 18 miles back of tho lino whcro tho armies are locked in a death struggle today. Amoricans aro nngaged In tlie battle at Chateau-Thierry and eastword along tho Manio for oomo distance. Their positions extend northwest of Chateau-Thlorry to tho village of Tor-cy, on the Cllngon River, and eastward alone tho Marno to Jaulgonnea, whero they have been engaged In local fighting recently. General Lrfggett has about 220,000 men, the first army corps, in this sector. So far as known no American troops are In tho neighborhood of Rhclms, which seems to be the centre of tho tremendous storm loceed by the enemy at dawn today. There have been Italian forces on tho lino to the southwest ot Rholms, under attack in tho present drive.

LoEUO. From every standpoint this Goldwyn film play is a distinct advance over any of her previous successes, not even excepting "The Danger Game," conceded to be Madge Kennedy's most notable achievement. "Tho Service Star" is a play of the moment, symbolizing by its title the flag of all mothers. While it is" in no sense a war play-there is not a battle scene In it-the new production combines the hopes and fears and prayers of every woman who has sent a man overseas. It tolls the story of a hero's waiting wife and the strange deception practiced on a draft board and what discovery meant to /everyone concerned.-. In addition to thia excellent feature, the second Instalment ot "The HIstroy ot The War" showing the Gorman and Belgian mobilization, will be shown. In this instalment tho Kaiser la shown reviewing his troops as they start on tholr hellish errand to overrun Belgium. Good comedy will also be shown.
