"I cannot tell you how bitter and bloody the fighting in that battle wat. The fight for Del-vllle Wood tatted for nearly two months, and In those two months 400 .shells fell every minute on DerWMe Wood, and not less than 300,000 men were killed and wounded there. That wood during t,he battle was a scene of death, bloodshed,, and smash such as cannot be Imagined. You walked oh the -bones "and flash of men and on fresh blood dripping out of stretchers. By the side of the track was a poor starved cat eating the brains of a man. "In..High Wood they fought till the rags and bones -of dead men hung from the wrecks of the tress! u In Pozleres, men lived for days and nights under a never-ceasing barrage designed to blow -ttrem off the ridge which they had won. They were burled and unburled and reburled by shslls. There were 80,000 casualties, on that ghastly table, and the shell-shock caass leaped and shook and twittered in every clearing station. "Twenty thousand men were killed and wounded In the taking ef a nest of machine guns In the subterranean fort of Mouquet Farm. Our men went 'down Into the shafts of that fort and /ought in the darkness underground till the passage was all seamed with bullets. "We lost half a million men in that great battle, and we had our reward. For in the winter of 1917, In the winter night, a great and shattering barrage raged up along the front. It was the barrage which covered the attack en Mlraumont, and drove the enemy from the Ancre valley. The next day came the news that fterre had fallen, and we want up and stood In Serre. And Gomme- court fell, and the rain of shells ceased upon Loupart and ' La ' Barque, and the news ran along like wildfire that the enemy was going back." So wrote John Mass-field. What, alongside! such language � thjiSi are figures an*d appeals to the material side of war bonds? Why not discard altogether the tactics and practices of the counting house, so foreign to such a cause as that in which we are engaged to the death, and stand upon the higher platform of patriotism? Internal conditions are so bad that a revolution might develop quickly. Further warfare would assure civil war. The German cardinal, whose statement was published yesterday, confesses that the situation In Germany is dark. Germany is on the f edge of the precipice. Russia's pre--sent state, for which it is responsible, ; may he its own before ninny weeks. It would be n just punishment for the war lords, too. A taste of Russia's hiedlclne would make them realize the evil they bad created in the world. T SUBMIT 10 A ('OKTIXVKn dv Paob -4) GERMANY'S PROMISE TO DISCARD AUTOCRACY.
