Oct. 11.-To the east of the St. llilairc region, in �which town there was heavy machine j?nn duelling before It was captured, the British are driving in toward Sol-esmes. Last reports indicated the following line,' which always can be counted upon to be well in the rear � of the advance patrols and cavalry: The French are occupying the line cf the river Oise and then joining up with the British east of Fontaine-No-tre 'Dame, the line thence running east of Beautreuff, east of Serboncourt, east of Vaux-Andigny through St. Benin, east of Le Cateau, west of Montay, eouth of Ncuville, east of Inchy, east of Bethencourt, east of Prayelie, southwest of Quiery. well east of Be-villers, in front of St. Hilaire, east of Avesnes-Les-Aubert and east of Bieux. Thence the lino runs along the Erclin liver, including Naves and Thun-St. JMartin and north and well east of Es-tnin and along the line of the Sensee canal, south of Heira-Lenglet and Fres-eies. Last night was one of clear starlight -mid the British bombers were out in force intensively attacking human and flther targets and creating great havoc among the fleeing enemy. The Am- ericans are keeping perfect pace with the British on either side of. them. Patrols Enter Grand Pre London, Oct. 11.-The Hmiditig line behind Lnon, between the rivers Berre and Slssonno, has been turned, making the German situation in the Laon area most difficult. In the Champagne, the French and Americans, joining hands north of the Argonne in tlio Grande Pre gap, have occupied the Grande Pre Btation, while patrols are said to have entered that town itself. On the river Meuse, northwest of Verdun, to Americans ave cleaned out a small pocket in the direction of Sirvy, which has held thorn up for a long time. Yanks Advance Five Miles With the American Army Northwest of Verdun, Oct. 10.-(9 p.m.)- American forces struck the German lines just east of the Argonne forest today. They captured the villages of Sotnraeraiice, Chevieres and Marcq. The ridge of Dame Marie was stormed after hard fighting. More than 1,000 prisoners were taken during the day. These include onc colonel and two battalion staffs. Fighting opened this morning with the infantry sweeping through the' northern portion of the Argonne forest for a maximum depth of nearly five miles. Little opposition was encountered from the enemy, who had probably retired during the night to escape from the pocket formed by the American flanking movement on Monday. Clear Argonne Forest Paris, Oct. 11.-British armies under command of Generals Rawlinson, Byng and Horn continued their advance this morning under favorable conditions. British troops captured St. Hilaire-les-Carabrai, Avesnes and St. Aubert. Maiiy prisoners were taken and much material was captured. Gen. Debeny's army has pushed across the river Oise at several points in the region east of St. Quen-tin and his troops are now menacing the strategic town of Guise. North of Rheims, the French 6th army' is holding both banks of the river Suippe and has captured Bert-ricourt. Italian forces played a brilliant part in the magnificent attack of the Gth army, which also resulted in the capture of Courtecon, south of Laon. The cleaning up of the Argonne forest has been completed by the American troops. No Cermans now remain in that great wooded area. Preparing 2,000,000 More to Fol low to Make Victory Certain, The Day's War Summary 1 'i " .-(By the Associated Press) r,T I ? u �,f, th^GermanB-,on northern France has been loosened and the process of herding them back to their borders is proceeding at an increasingly rapid pace. Already, since the beginning of the July offensive", which started the loosening process, the allies have pushed the enemy back a maximum of 45 miles, from the Ancre near Albert to the tip of the present Anglo-American wedge at Le Cateau. _ TWENTY-FIVE MILES FROM MAUBEUGE A scant 25 miles more will bring them on their line to the Belgian frontier south of Maubeuge. But long before that point is reached the pressure on all sides, if continued at the present rate, will have resulted in the clearing pf the enemy from virtually all French territory and a great part of Belgium GENERAL RETREAT UNDER PRESSURE The Germans indeed are already carrying out a geYieral retreat. But it is a retreat under pressure and is bound to cost them heavily in men and material. Gen. tmdendorff latently, has been desirous of withdrawing to a shorter line where he could re-organize his forces, but the steady relentless pressure' which Marshal Foch has applied all along the front has made it impossible for him to detach himself for such an operation. Last nightjs developments and those of today along the wide battlefront only serve to accentuate the extent of the German retreat and the acceleration of its pace. The official reports reveal the British and Americans cooperating with them, still widening Ihe great wedge in tlie German line southeast of Cambrai, a process in which the French to-the south are aiding notably. Gen. Petain's troops have pushed up the river Oise to a point almost as far north as Guise, where' they join up with the British and Americans who are rapidly nearing the important railway junction of "VVasslgny, south and east of Le Cateau. This drive in the centre is matched in efficacy, however, by the terrific pressure of the French south of Laon and along the line north of the Ais?ib and in tUo Champagne. This movement, in conjunction with the drive to the north is, according to today's advices, making it inevitable that the Germans retire from Laon and to the St. Gobain massif. The withdrawal, Indeed, appears to be under way. The Americans are with the French in applying the pressure in the Champagne and the American first army'in its drive in the Argonna,area has joined hands with Gen. Petain's troops at Grande Pre. On the farth north end of the battle line, the Anglo-Belgian forces are' apparently'being held in leash to thrust again forward to close the pocket in which Douai now is enclosed together with the city of Lille, as soon as the northeasterly thrust of the British 1st, 3rd and 4th armies has progressed to the desired*point' The Germans in the Lens area are not wdtting for this trap to .be sprung, but are continuing their withdrawal from that part -of the pocket, which is the one most immediately threatened. Battle front reports Indicate an expectancy there that"" a move by the Germans to evacuate Douai is imminent. Washington, Oct. 11.-American troops sent overseas have passed the 1,900,000 mark, Gen. March, . chief of staff, announced today, coupling his statement with an urgent appeal to the country to support -the fourth Liberty loan. The present is no time to hang back, Gen. March said, for, the maximum resources of the nation in men and money must be "hurl-, ed at the Hun," to make victory certain and while the movement of soldiers across the water is continuing, the war department is preparing another 2,000,000 men to follow the first 2,000,000. The department has asked congress for $8,000,000,000 to carry out its program, he added, and the financial support of that program must not be withheld by the nation. / NEW HUN GOVERNMENT IS NO IMPROVEMENT London, Oct. Jl.-Commenting upon tlie torpedoing without warning of the passenger steamer HIrano Maru and Leinster, the Daily Chronicle says that atrocities of this kind under the government of Prince Maximilian of Baden, the new German chancellor, ought not to be lost sight of by the allies in deciding their attitude toward the chancellor. NO LICENSE, FINED / Calgary, Oct. ll.-rFailing to take out a retail fruit and vegetable dealers' license as required by oijder No. 22 of the Canada Food Board, A. Onischenko, a returned veteran carrying on business in a small store on Eighth Avenue between First and Second streets east, was summoned to police court this morning and fined $100 and costs. AT STARLAND. The screen and stage boast many pairs of devoted sisters, who through each other's efforts or their own individual talent, secure fame and position. The latest of these are the Bennett sisters, Enid, now a well-known star, and Marjorie, who is making her photo-dramatic debut with her "big sister" in "Naughty Naughty!" It may well be said, however, that Miss Marjorie Bennett has made her own way to success, having studied and worked as an extra in many former pictures until her own' merit earned for her the prominent role she takes An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure s When the Spanish 'Flu is around.

Adventures now happen to Peggy in rapid succession. She falls in love with a young American aviator, serving in the cause of the allies. She finds that to 'be rich is not always to he happy. At one moment the audience laughs with her and the next minute it cries �With her. AT THE EMPRESS. Critics throughout the country are loud in their praise ot "Today," Geo. Broadhurst's great play starring Florence Reed, which will be shown at the Empress theatre today and tomorrow, Ada Patterson, of the New York American, saying: "I regard 'Today' as the vindication of the motion picture, and none of the enemies of the silent drama can stand against it." M1b3 Patterson is not the only critic of national repute who has spoken, lu strong commendation of the play, the New York Morning Telegraph saying: "Florence Reed's portrayal of the wife will go on record as one of the screen's finest performances. "Today" is iin exceedingly dramatic picture and is one of the strongest of the year." Replete with sensational scenes, thrilling situations and tense moments, the picture is the kind that causes the spectator to grip his Seat and hold his breath with expectancy. , Vivid and startling it lays'stark the grinning skeleton of Today's gilded life as told in the story by George Hroadhunst. It is the tale of a woman who laughing gaily first sipped the wine of folly, then drained the cup to its bitterest dregs. She toasted Vanity and its court of Peacock retinue- and awoke to find that while the primroses faded and died the flower of true love blossomed into the most fragrant bloom of all.
