Sept. 19......Activity on the Canadian front is confined largely to artillery and the air. Gas shelling continues, a strange feature of it l)einK tlmt I lie enemy is using gas ahollH when winds are entirely nullifying their efforts. A considerable ))ortion of our own return is from captured guns, many of which are still doing service, with tlie large slocks ot ammunition led by the retreating Germans. In the air, iliere is a balloon war. The enemy seems particularly sensitive to aerial observations and persistently attacks our balloons with varying success. Our counter-work is even more persistent and German balloons are few and far between. Night raiders are completely blocked. On tlie (Janadian front in three nights two largo enemy airplanes were lirought down in fiames and not one machine succeeded in penetrating far into our lines. Recently captured documents and other evidence prove the efficacy of the tanks. German army orders are giving out detailed plans for fighting the tanks and are trying by every means to stiffen tlie backbone ot the terrified infantry.
