Splendid Work Onr trooiis in this noigliborhood luivc (lono really apliindid work and time neither diminishes their eagerness nor weakens their strungth. Indeed, tlicy hkve just given the enemy another sigiial proof of their raiding jiroweas by bayonetling and bombing! iheir way along hostile treni:hqs capturing nineteen prisoners, three'machine guns, one light trench mortar,  blowing up many dug outs and inflicting heavy casualties. Men of Central -Ontario, with other troops, carried out tliosn latest operations. . They .ware ovorywhere suecossful in their attack. An Attack All afternodn and evening our artillery shelled a village. Just ' after midnight the fire increased to barrage intensity, with machine guns and frouclk mortars combining in conncc-trated bombardments. As soon as this barrage lifted, the Ontario troops advanced to their attack. Shooting opposing sentries, they moved on in darkness to the attack, right and loft, eyatems of enemy trenches. In a tangle of wire-, t.rsnchcg and dugouts heavy fighting took place. In somo places the enemy offered strong resistance, holding to positions until killed in hand-to-hand fighting or blown out of them by our bombors. In other spots, however, the Bochc, crowding Into shelters trying to hide, showed marked readiness to cry "Kuiaorad" when discovered. Those who did not surrender were bayonott-od. Then our bombers, pressing on, l)ombed dug outs, adjoining shell liolos destroying the' former and Inflicting many casualties on the Germans who had run into them for shelter. B. C. Troops.

Jnnn G.- (Via Reuters Ottawa Agency.)-The battle situation is generally unchanged. Tho- Germans arc held up for the time being on tho whole front from .Voyon to Uhoims. They have lost heavily In the last fow days, particularly on Monday and Tuesday, when their gains wore smallest. French experts now anticipate that the Germans will attempt to break through elsewhere. pD.u.�ibly between Noyon and Mount Didicr. with tho object of converging their arlvunce toward Paris, but it is not impossible they will attack in a totally different sector. This would he in accordance with the habitual German strategy of pressing an attack in one sector until tho momentum is pxhaiisted and then turnlnf!' sharply off to strike elaowhorn. The proximity of Paris in this case, however, may dictate a departure from these tactlQs.

The Daily News says: "Never was il fabric of slander erected on so airy ji foundation.

Tho Dally (Sraphlc says; "Monstrous accusations wore made by Pom-berton-nuilngs wholesale of tho al-lesod authority of a mysterious book, which wa.s not produced in court.

Tlie whole trend of the present work is to show that the world conflict was imposed by the German,emperor's personal military policy 'and his private engagement iwlth Austria on the eve of the struggle.
