A.- Sushana John Torrance Managing Director Business .Manager THE LINES OF BATTLE The situation in France is, accord icg to the London statement, more hopeful than at any Ume since the war commenced, it would be well now to take stoek of the present positions of tlie armies as far as they can -be gathered from the.reports conjunction with the names of locali- ties mentioned. Tile'turning movements, on which opposing forces were: embarked, have Ijcen abandoned, through 'beii.s iiu practicable, now that boih the line of the Allies, and that of the enemy, extend on their respective left and right to the North Sea. U will be for tho Allies, therefore.' to break through tho Gorman line detaching its com- ponent parts, or by so threatening to cautR it to retreat. And here the indications are encouraging. The enemy now holds all Belgium with the exception of a strip in West Flanders-bounded by Uie sea on.his risht line. This line extends from Ostend southeast to Thorout, ir miles southwest of Bruges, nsar Ostend, thence to Roulers, 19 miles south- west of Bruges, on to. Menin, on the (Lloyd George at Queen's Hull, London) Some have already given their lives. There are some who have given more than their lives; they have given the lives of those who are dear to them. 1 honor their courage, and may God be their comfort and their strength. Those who have fallen have dietl consecrated deaths. They have taken their part in the making of a new new world. I can sec signs-of it coming through the glare of the battlefield. Tlie people of all lands will gain more by this struggle than they comprehend at the present moment. They will be rid of the greatest menace to their freedom. That is not all. There is another blessing, infinitely greater and more enduring, which is emerging already out of this great I new patriotism, richer, nobler, more exalted than the j old. I see a new recognition amongst all classes high and low, shedding themselves of a new recognition that the !ionor of a country docs not depend '.merely upon the mainten- mce of its glory in the stricken field, but in protecting its homes from distress as well. It is a new patriotism which is bringing a outlook over all classes. The great flood of luxury and of sloth which had submerged the land is receding, and n new Britain is appearing. We can see, for the first time, the funda- mental things that mailer in life, and that had been obscured from our vision by the tropical growth of prosperity. May I tell you in a simple parable what I think this war is doing for us? I know a valley in. the north of Wales between the -mountains and the beautiful valley, snug, comfort- able, sheltered by the mountains from all Ihe bitter blast. II was very enervating, and I remember how the boys were in the habit of-climbing the hill above the village to have a glimpse of the great mountains in the distance, and to be stimulated and freshened by the breezes which came from the hill tops, and by the great spectacle of that valley. We have been living in sheltered valley for generations. We have been too comfort- able, too indulgent, many, perhaps, too selfish, and the stern hand of fate has scourged us to an elevation where we can see the great everlasting tilings that matter for a great Belgian bonier, north of Lille.. of honor we had Patriotism, 'in glittering great pinnacle of Sacrifice, pointing like in. is 7 miles southwest of Co'jrtrai in Belgium and, from the fact that Courtrai has been occupied by tho Allies, it is doubtful whether the enemy's line still rests there.; The centre line of .'battle seems to start from near Roya ou to -Verdun, and sway in the convulsions of a great war. and tie Allies' right goes on almost j to' Men, and stretches southeasterly concem wWch uses the unusual j through the neighborhood of 3L Die a rugged finger to Heaven. We shall descend into the valleys again, but as long as the men and women of this generation last ihey will carry in their hearts the image of these great mountain peaks, whose foundations are not shaken though.
