The British advanced for a distance of half a mile on a front of three and a half miles. GERMAN STATEMENT Berlin, Sept. 12.-(via London) ^British forces attacking the German line on the Flanders front near Armentieres and the canal .of la Bassee today were repulsed, according to today's announcemenli from army headquarters. British attacks along the Capal Du Nord, bet\*een Marqulen and Havrlncourt, likewise failed, the statement says. Inundate Aisne Region London, Sept. 12.-Accor(il]>ng' to Dutch frontier messages, tlie Germans are preparing to inundate the region Houth of the rivor Alsno, north east of Bheiras, says a despatch llrom Amsterdam to the Central News Agency.

British Progress British Army in Prnnce,,Sept. 12.- (10,00 a.m.)-(Associated Press)-A further improvement of the British lino north and south ot Attily, to the south ot St, Quentin, was achieved late yesterday by attacks which met v/ith comparatively slight resistance from the hard pressed Germans. Dominating high ground was the objective which Me attacking forces sought and won. Last evening, the Britisli attacked again,"!! considerable opposition and established posts west of the Canal Du Nord at Moeurves'and lor a distance northward. (By the Associated Press). American and French troop.s today began an offensive along a 20-mile front on the Lorraine sector near the German border. The movement evidently is aimed primarily at the elimination of the famous St. Mihiel salient, which, for more than tour years, has projected inlo^ the allied line southeast ot Verdun. Metz the Objective The attacks were launched on both sides of the salient on a 12-milo front on the south and an 8-mlIe front on tlie westerly side. The assaults wore progressing favorably at the latest reports. There have been many predictions that an American offensive was likely this fall and Lorraine has been mentioned as one ot the most probable sectors for the attacks. The German citartol of Metz lies only 15 miles northeast of Pont-a-Mousson, at the easterly edge of the salient under attack and it seems probable that this may be a further objective. The fall n the drive. From that town the of Boilionville, then to Pannes and Bois-de-Gargantua and north of oving in the direction of VIgneulles he French have reached the western g a strong resistance. The Germans w being attacked by the French. of this saliyit would scorn to be a necessity before any drive in great force Into German terl'itory on this front is attempted, otherwise the German forces to the''west would be left in a threatening position on the left flank of the attacking armios. Gen. Pershing has a huge American array under his command aiid there seems little doubt that adequate forces would i be at the disposal of Marshal ]*'och for ' an important push in this sector. The St. .Mlhlel salient is nea:rly 20 miles wide at its mouth, from Frenes, 12 miles southeast of Verdun, to Pont-a-Mousson and more than 15 miles in depth with an apex just to the southwest of St. Mihiel. Marshal Foch has caused the launching of this attack almost at the same time with the virtually complete elimination of tlio various salients the Germans drove into the allied lines in their offensives during the present fighting year. The Hindenburg line has again become the German defen-Klvo position almost along its entire length and the German defense was stiffening materially at all points where the French, British and Americans were prossing in npon them. The German.^ will have, it appears, another problem to meet in dealing with the allies in another comparatively distant quarter from that in which the bulk of the lighting has occurred in this year's campaign. The question will be, it seems, whether the r^jduced German man-power has left Gen, Lud-endorft with forces sufficient to maintain his front from Rheims to Ypres and at the same time beat hack a strong thrust by the allies far to the south-oast oi; the battlefront, British Turk Line The Hindenburg line itself, already has not proved too strong for eithf^r the French or the British at sonic points in the recent fighting. The British breached on tlic Queant-Dro-court line and today ,there came the official announcement from London that tlie British had made further progress behind thl,s line in the direction of Cambrai. A strong defensive line has been taken by the enemy along the Canal du Nord, but this line now seems turned on its left flank, as the British have forced a crossing of the canal to the northwest of Havrlncourt and are in a position to push up the easterly bank, providing Field Marshal Haig decides to employ his driving force in this direction. ERFUL STORIES FE-SAVING WORK Toi'onto, Sept. 12.-A special cable to the Mail and limpire from London says wonderful stories uro told ot the lil'i' saving work of the British array carrier jjigeons in the war zone. Recently a pigeon was liberated frdm one ot two British seaplanes in the North Soa, Flying through an aerial battle, the pigeon was wounded in the leg l)y a bullet, but it arrived at Its r.i'stination. its feathers stained with blood. Tho message it carried was the one word "attacked." According to the aviators' report received subsequently, two British machines were opposed by six German planes. The Germans, however, made off before (here was any chance ot a more oqual tight. The pigeon, which has recovered from its wound, is now tho pet of the flying station and has been "pensioned off." Another pigeon, at the cost of its lite, saved the lives ot six British airmen who were adrift in the North Sea. After delivering their message of appeal for help, tho pigeon dropped dead from exhaustion. The wrecked airmen, when rescued from their perilous position, were on the point of meeting the same fate, for they had no food and very little water.
