The British are In no hurry to clear up the situation about Carabrai and it may be three or four days before they actually take the town. The German communications there also have bPen ruined and they cannot bring in help or take away much material. Hold on Coast Menaced The advance along the British front from St. Quentin north continued through last night and this morning in spite of the fact that a heavy rain was falling. It was Flanders, however, to which the pivot of the battle seemed to have shifted for the moment. This area gained the distinction because of the fact that the gallant little Belgian army, assisted by the British is driving ahead in such a manner as to menace the German hold on the entire Belgian coast as far as Ostend. From Dlxtnude southeastward, a wide wedge has been driven in the enemy positions and at last reports the allied forces wore within less than, two miles of the railway junction of Routers. Realizing that the ground from which they are being thrown is in valuable to them, the Germans are now resisting heavily and have thrown in four divisions, at l^ast of reserves Your Portrait for Overseas If you are thinking of sending your portrait to your boy at the front now is the time to have it taken.

After fighting desperately for weeks to retain the approaches of the hms-slf of St. Gobain and Laon, the enemy is abandoning them. This group of heights for four years has formed the central pillar of the German line in France. The strategy of Marshal Foch compelled tho enemy, as it did on the Marne, to withdraw his centre before the allied, attacks on the north and the east forced him to move back on the wings. The retreat is one of the first and direct results of the French, British and American offensives of the last few days.

"On the western front, the enemy tried with 10 regiments to defend St. Nicholas, but bur strong attacks compelled him to abandon his positions." We are now 10 kilometres north of St. Nicholas.

The fall of Cambrai is imminent, but this place already is virtually useless to the enemy. , The same statement applies to St. Quentin.
