WELL- KNOWN RANCHER, IS DEAD A rcniarkitble description of the terrific fighting in the mud-filled tranches ;ilor.g the Aisiie is given in the diary of a wounded French sol- dier, extracts from which were print- ed iu the Now York Herald. Ho writes; Like caricatures fashioned of mud, suddenly called to life, hobbled fry out of the holes where we had lived under a hell of bursting shells, scaring flame, and nauseous gases for days. We were relieved by other .troops, who saluted ns as they passed. Did 'we salute I do not remember. I only know ray weariness was past a physical sensation. I was a dead man, who somehow the pow- er of moving. AVft were -marched to the cast.Io farm of Goudrecourt, near Fontenoy, north of the Aisiie; iu short, buck of the table laud, where Ve were ahm.

Wo watch the great walls about 'this castle farm crumble in jets in white smoke, and we shud- dei- 'at the .explosions that seem to come a raoiriont after. All of us clean our arms, so rusted by tliu oternal rain, that wii'l never stop. Our officers put in order the wavering and mixed units, and that night we are told to go back) to our posts. But our officers agree to let us rest.
