With "a foresight which shows the nature of the foe, and of them no easy matter, the Germans hare fallen carefully entrenched and-prepared for any cnsTgency that may arise. Fron- tal attacks seem for the timejojhare. taken a pause, and commanders on either side are clererly endeavoring to .outwit one another with flaniing rnoveineats. The reports are meagre, but lent to Indkate that what little .-ad-1 vantage has been gained rests with the Allies. General Kluck on enemy's right has withdrawn some: what to Moaa, and on the right of AlUed Hna, towards Yerdun, the en- emy has also giveujtvar, being push- ed Jjartially across tho border. On the centre, by Kieims, offence and defence rase strenuously, with the opposing forces in an artillery duel endeavoring to make a cleaTage in either line 10 as to: detach the main body from the support ef their respective wings. NEWSPAPERS SUFFER LOSSES These are money losing days for the newspapers throughout the world. An English newspaper Just now is, re- duced in size and practically without advertising of any kind. In Paris the European edition of the New York -Herald laer-eased the price to help pay the losses from advertising. In Canada advertising has fallen off heavily in all the newspapers and iave increased, on ac- count of the heavy telegraphic toHt for news It IB from the adver- tising a. newspaper gets its revenue, and the fact that the sales of news- papers on the streets has increased is nu .proof that war makes money for the .publishers as some people foolishly- fcslieve. The .price charged for a newspaper to the newsboys or. the subscribers direct is not sufficient to pay for the production of the paper provide profit. People look to the newspapers for andTthe more1" caa get the better they are -pleased- In the case of nearly every paper pub- lished In. Canada today war news is being supplied at a loss to tho Ushers. The'telegraphic tolls hare increased heavily, while ths revenue has dropped oE to a much greater test Some foolish persons imaging a of the war newe and never passes over a telegraph .wire. The news may occasionally read as though it was faked up, (but it cornea 'over- the wiras nevertheless, and the newspapers have to pay the toll for it, whether good: or bad. Ta war times there are people who hare nothing else to do but crltlclie. If their ideas "were carried out the" enemy -would have been .routed long ago. "Were they running a news paper they would have column upon column of more.-war -news than the papers are now providing, and they would maruiiacture the money to pay for it, too. Then, as for serving the country, they talk about the other fellow's failure-to enlist, but forget their own casa entirely Pity these hadn't something better to em- ploy their brains If the war con- tinue? long tney are liable to land in ihe chronic kicker ward in an asylum. Col. Henry tha militant American, and editor of the Kentucky, Courier- is in accord 'with Dr. C. A., presi- dent emeritus Harvard in his view. 'No man can uphold the German and remain a good American." 2ouldl-we. say -better ourselves? The officer who is so keen to. fight the enemy that he is wuilaff- in the ranks, is a real patriot. There are many cases of the kind In Canada ii this war. rn England we find sons 6t prominent men serving as non- commissioned .officers. One of the sergeants in King Edward's Horse is a son of Sir-Edward Carson. BRITAIN NEEDS HORSES Tho recent purchase made in the west of noises for the British arm> will not the It.-is intimated that a certain number of horses will be purchased regularly throughout the west.'' According to degpttches, shortage o[ cavalry horses. Is causing British army omuialR much uneasiness Pox hunting in England and Ireland has encouraged the breeding of light mounts" but unfortunately officers from continental armies have visited the leading English and Irish lain) for shears and bought the most select sad- fdlers.
