Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1918 THE liET'IBnTDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE (By the AMociated Pret*,) RAPID RETREAT, Forced to a reallzatjpn ot impending peril by tlicruiogfeBS of (ho BrlUsli southeast; of ValeilRlenneB and the Frencli and Americans around Sodan; Germany's shattered armies are in rapid retreat from the Belgran'frontier to the Aisne, river, So rapid is tho retirement tliat it is very difficult to determine the exact location of the contending forces along thi�,'86-mfle front. WEDGE BETWEEN MON8 AND MAUBUffOE British forces have cleared the .barrier of Mortrial forest'and threaten to ilrive a wedge between Mons and llaubuege. To the south, the French Iiave launoh'ed an attacic that has forced the enemy back from three to four miles, while along the Meuse the-Araei-lcans, in close co-operation witli Uio French just to the westward, have overcome a stubborn resistance by, i;he enemy and moved still nearer tho Sedan-Iionguyon railroad. NOT OROERLY RETREAT Jy^': There Is evidence that tlie Germans are not carrying out tlie orderly ru-trent fjiat'raarlced their retirement from the Marne and Somme aalieuts. Bat terles of field guns, with horses attached, liave been captured and a vust r(uan-tity of munitions which could be moved quickly under ordinary circumstanfcea 1/ave fallen into the hands ol tlie allies, j ' . ' GHENT INVESTED. To the north, Gheilt is closely invested by the French, Belgian and British troops, TJio fit^tXns thore is apparently between German rear-guards ami the oUled'forces, for civilians are said to be close behind the lines and Queen Elizabeth of Belgium watched tho beginning of the assault against the city. t- THE LINE OF THE SCHELDT. The line ot the Scheldt is no longer any protection to the enemy in Bel-glumV- it has been crossed everywhere from Gheiit to Vtlenciennes \and it is lirobable that allied troops have been flung across the canal north of Ghent. Between Ghent and Brussels there Is no great natural obstacle except the Bendrie iiver, which will aid the Germans in conducting dWensive operations and it sems probable that the enemy will not turn at bay until he reaches the Namur-Brussels-Antwerp line, which is said to have'been prepared for a grim etrug!gle.

"Thousands of people' suffer more or less constantly from.furred, doated tongue, bad breath, sour burning stomach, frequent vomiting, rumbling, in stomach, bitter eructations, gas, wind and stomach acidity and call It indigestion when in reality their trouble Is due to gastric cartarrh of the stomach," writes a New York physician. Catarrh of the stomach is dangerous because the mucous membrane lining ot the stomach Is thickened and 3. coating of phlegm roverg the surface so that the digestive fluids cannot mix with the food and digest them. This condition soon breeds deadly disease in the fermented, unassimllated food. The blood Is polluted and carries tho j Infection throughout the body. Gastric ulcers are apt to form and frequently an ulcer is the tlrst sign of a deadjy l^cancer. . x \ In catarrh of the stomach a good and safe treatment is to take before meals a tea6.poonful of pure Bisurat-ed Magnesia in half a glass of hot water as hot as you can comfortably drink it. The hot water washes the mucous from the stomach walls and draws the blood to the stomach while the blsiir-ated magneslai is" ah excellent solvent for mucus^and increases the effSnieucy of the hot water treatment. Moreover the Blsurated Magnesia will serve as a'po'werful but harmless antacid which will neutralize any excess hydrochloric acid that may be In your stomach and sweeten i\s food, contents.

(Capt.'Frank Edwards ot tbe British Army in a speech at Minneapolis) Between their trenches and ours you have No-man's land.. People have asked me. "How wide is No-man's land? How far away were you from the enemy's trenches across No-man's land?" .And they are^sometimes surprised when I tell them' that for seven weeks I was 'lighting in a certain sector of, the trenches, the closest point of which was about 35 yards from the nearest point of the enemy trenches. We could hear them speaking together plainly, 'we could hear them shouting to ourselves, we could hear them spealtiug to us sometimes in quite uncomplimentiiry terms and on more than one occasion I have heard our lads returning With interest the compliments.' A tiny little, British Tommy, he was a very tiny chap, brought in a bigl burly Prussian .of fleer and, as they stood together, it was Interesting to see tbe lofty way in. which ;this Prussian officer looked down upon the English'Tommy. He looked down upon him fijorn every point of view, na-tionallj', -ihysieally, socially and intellectually and every other way until you wondered how there was anything left of -that little- Tommy. H6 said to him at last, very disdainfully i "You fight for! monfey." Jiist, fancy, you bankers, ianoy a man tellinga British Tommy that he fights for money,-and you know how much the poor fellow gets? Twenty-five cents a day; he fights and dies for 25 cents a day,- when.he gets It, and tlierei,,are .all sorts ot deductions for Insui'tt^fce,. for fines (Tomniy-.has a-genius foK-finfes), for allr'sorts of things, and-Jit you look at the pittance tiiat remains, you know, it is positively cruel to tell Tommy Atkins that bB,rflghts for money.^ (baughter), .Oh� noj'ohs rtb, Tommy Atkins 'Ilfehts.'to'f, �somethfeig else that.!?
