The nature of the bombardment which seems to have been heavy enough to keep our men under rover without at first alarming th^iii, contributed to tho success of their -way through the enemy's wire. i lie enemy," writes tho Field marshal, "was laying out. u fresh line of defences behind those whicli lie had alrer.dy completed on th* rainbnii front; and il. was to be expected hi;; troops would be redistributed us soon as our pressure in inlanders relaxed.

He details his experiences and observations in the photoplay, the plot following closely a criminal iase which was published under flaring headlines the country over a few years ago.

Sing Sing for his ai tempt to fleece a wealthy young clubman. The modus operandi of these legal sharks varies, but the case detailed in the plot of "Alimony" was an actual case which came under the reporter's observat- ' ions and nothing of the dramatic has i been lost in the screen version. * "Balloonaties," the first of Alice A play of the Croat War in four acts by Sergv.
