Over their wonderful defenses goes the new British invention, born of. ne- cessity, the armored car that can ride over chasms. But it is not .any scienlillc Invention that has driven the Germans back, it is the manhood oC tiic united kingdom and its colonies, innliKiictl by stay-at-home critics for two years and now giving a terrific answer. "KniUaml will right to the last French man." "Everybody fights but John Hull." What has become of. those comforlivhlo slurs from uasy cbairs and typewriter desks?

THE INFANTRY OFFICER (Ramoro de Maeztu, In The New Age) Do you tnow what it is to be an infantry officer in England? When the order to charge is given the first man to leap over the trench parapet into the free air is the infantry of- revolver in his left hand, his yellow stick in his right. His swoi-d is rarely used. The officer advances I at the head-ot his company or platoon. Such is the custom of this Old Eng- land, where the superior is not called chief, but leader: he does not com- mand, he leads. A friend of mine told me some time ago that .the average life Of an infantry officer is five days, counting from the time of his arrival in the firing line. The figure is exag- gerated, of course; hut there is no doubt that the casualties among the infantry officers are much greater than among aviators: these arc higher than the losses of the, engineers, and these, again, are higher than those oi the artillery. But the casualties of the aviators themselves are, in pro- porlion, not more than, one-third of those of the infantry.

British chaplain, while searching the battlefield of the Ancre for wounded hidden in the shell cra- ters during the British advance, ac- companied hy a few soldiers, came upon an isolated trench containing nearly 400 Germans, who. promptly surrendered. The chaplain ordered the men to file out upon the open ground prep- aratory to passing them hack with an escort, when the German officer, see- ing the small size of the force to which he was surrendering, tried lo rally his men and overpower it. He wan about to kilfttte clmslain.when.a British infantty, ;'hiin shot him dead, whereupon- the? nthw Germans again held up their-hitfds'aiid shouted their eagerness to be made prisoner. An order dated October 13, issued by the commander of the second guard reserve division, which has lost heav- ily in. the present battle, was found on one of the men. It. calls on the guards to mako greater exertions and sacrifices Which are necessitated by the unbroken spirit of the enemies and adds: "We shall sec to it that the British and French armies are exterminated in the hell they have created." The order also emphasizes the ne- cr.ssity of economizing ammunition! on quiet days. In order to be ready for emergencies. THE QUININE THAT DOES NOT AFFECT HEAD.
