Against the slight territorial gains
which have been made by the Germans
since they began, tho drive fivo weeks
ago must bo sot the" fact that thoy had
to throw' 140 divisions Into battle In
five' weeks. A considerable number
of these have been twice engaged ajid
some thrice. Adding these re-appearances
together, there is a total of 180
engageniiMitB of divisions, equivalent
to a mass of two and a half million
men whom tho enomy has already put
into battle. As a Gorman division Is
never'withdrawn until it has sustained
sovero losses, on an avfeirago of 2,500,
it Is reasonable to reckon tho enemy's
loss slnco tho beginning of tho battlo
at not less than 350,000.
The Germans began the offensive
with a resorvo of 050,000 In depots In
Franco and at homo. Behind thesb
there is only tho 1919-20 class, con
sisting of youths, half of whom aro
under 18. Tho enemy's genuine flcht
ing reserve is thus half exhausted bo-
foro ho has covered anything like half
tno (II stance to his goal. His reckless
employment of divisions has left him
with a total of CO out of 200 in Ejranco
which havo not yet been engaged. Of
these 12 are landstrum divisions which
cannot bo used for tho purposo of an
offonsivo. Ttod Germans thus can
havo llttlo hopo that tho remaining CO
divisions can accomplish what tho first
140 failed to achieve.
Already tho Gorman staff Is anxious
ly realizing that their reserves of frosh
troops aro not greater than those un
der General Foch.

Ancient Silver Coin.
A coin which 1h regarded as tho
most ancient In tho world was recently
discovered by an archaeologist during
his explorations In North Syria. It Is
a cola of pure silver, bearing a per
fect Arnmean Inscription of Panannnu
Bar Rerub, king of Schnmol, who
reigned 800 years B. O. Up to tho
time this coin was unearthed tho Ly
dlnns had always been regarded as
tho Inventors of money, but this find
showed that tho Semitic Aramenns,
who lived two centuries beforo the Ly
dlnns, nre tho oldest known mnkers of
Daniel Boone's "Relenan."
Instinctively like answers the call of

of us venerate tho memory of Daniel
