Canadian soldiers unfit for duty., either by reason of wounds received at; the front or owing to physical unfit-' aess which developed during training In England, are being shipped back to Canada as fast as transportation for' them can be secured. The number to be' brought back' is variously estl-, inated at 26,000 to 70,000. The p.uri ^ose is evidently two-fold: to provld* mofQ room and food toE\be thoaaandt of new soldiers now being aent over, ^iid to release able-bodied men in .Canada for military service.

"'  " * MARVELLOUS RETREAT London, ilar. 25.--Reuler's headquarters correspondent sends the .follonlng on the groat battle in Franco: "With scarcely a lull and no abntetiisnt in intensity, the titanic struggle continues. The enemy artillery shows a tendeUOJT to decrease In TOltimo^doubtless owlns to the increasing difficulty to bring up gims. The manner in which our guns, tanks and.trans-, ports have boem withdrawn behind the obstinately retiring line amounts to a inan'flloiis feat "After falling back across the Somme, we cleared all the bridges oxcopt one, which \W,as * so commanded by our guntltb that It was more advantageous tp leave it standing. The enemy casnaUIes in his efforts to get across this narrow strip ot water have bgen prodigious." ENTIRE CONFIDENCE French Front In France, Mar. 2G. -Entire tonfldenc* reigns that the Germans' last trump in the world btittle will be over-trumped when the proper momebt cornea. The allied military authorities, were fully cognizant that the enemy's supreme effort would cause a retreat until measurbs could be taken to check the eruption into tbe allied positions. , As always, the attackers, pos-sessetl the advantage of knowing e.xactly where they'would launch their onslaught, while.the defenders -were compelled to await development ot the"'battle before AeetiDg the assault with counter measures. There is every sign in today's situation'that'the terrific attack in which apparently somewhere in the neighborhood o{ one niilllon Germans ot all arms are engaged. Is being slackoiied, 'The resistance ot the allies seems firmer, and the arrival on the scene of French reserves-sent tip to the southern flank, .brought welcome support to the Brltlsta who sustained the first powerful rush. - The German divisions which began what evidently was Intended to be an Irresistibie forward movement were so cut np that tboy were replaced by fresh formations. It is these divisions wWch - have been checked at the positionB� in which it was foreseen by- tlie allied generals that a stand would be made. SMALL VALUE The ground over which the fighting Is taking place possesses small strategical value bat It permitted the allies to retire In -perfect order. It had been devastated'l(y the Ger-' man^ before they retreated last year and the inhabitants had not had time or means to-build it up again. While retiring'across what was almost desert land the British inflicted enormous losses on the enemy %vho threw away thousands ot Uvea in an effort to overcome the resista-nc'e he encountered. 'When the retiring British reached the Somme ^nd the canal they turned about and', gave battle, meetinir repeated and Ions-sustained endeavors,of both infantry and cavalry. The initial rush; of' the enemy seems to have been stopped. Military oplnlon'generally is that this ilrst phase of the great battle.
