What a sob of relief will go up to heaven when that hour strikes. It wlil be a day to live for. truly. But will not the joy and ecstasy of it "be� multiplied many times if we can feel in that hour that we have borna our part with courage and patience and an uncomplaining, joyous spirit, and have failed in nothing In the duties that have lain to our hands! The day of peace will be a good day to us in very truth if we have lived for it, and done our part in paying the price of its coming, but othervi�# It will be a day into whose finest and fullest joy we may not enter. And that man who has refused to pay the price, and pay it cheerfully, who has shirked and evaded and grumbled and whined, will not be a man to be envied, no matter how he may have escaped or profited through-. these years.

In that case the Wotan III line, running from Antwerp through Xamur to Sedan and thence to Metz will be the stopping place where the Germans will endeavor to hold the allied advance this fall and dig in for the winter.. The menace to this new stand come9 | from the armies opej-atlng In Flan-dors. If the allies can keep contact) �with the Germans and pursue them rapidly enough to prevent preparation of the Wotan line then the Rhine may be the only place where a safa stand can be made. Between Cambrai and Laon the Ger-mans are moving back rapidly to keep in line with the right flanlt. The heavy smash made by the British and Americans on thi3 part of the line on Thursday, netting as It did, many prisoners and guns, Indicates thai tho Germans were rather slow-in taking up the retreat and this delay may prove costly, for Friday's reports indicated that the road to Brussels was practically open and Brussels is near the Wotan line. A break through on the Holland border would be attended with serious consequences for the GermanB. Tho Americana along the Meuse have been making important advances In spite of the desperate resistance of the Germans, and now dominate high ground yhlch is a aqrlous menace to the enemy retreat. Given good weather for a couple of -weeks the American-French operations In the Argonno may prove costly for the GermanB. The enemy is rapidly evacuating the occupied portions of Albania, Monte negro and Serbia. It Ib evident that the Teutons fear an invasion by way of the Danube.
