As a corvsequence, there has been a decided Improvoiuent in the allied positions. Details of the latest French success are lacking at the moment, but while It was a comparatively small operation, it Wits important. This Importance is accentuated by the fact that the victory comes at n time when tha oticmy undoubtedly is ready and waiting tor tho signal to renew his hugo otfonsive against tho alllea.
