THE WAR SUMMARIZED
All accounts agree that Germany
is paying heavily for every foot of
ground she has wrested from the al
lied armies. Her casualties are
shown by the British official state
ment to have mounted so high that
every part of the western front has
had to be drawn upon to provide
badly needed reinforcements for the
Field Marshal Haig's report re
veals that more than seventy divi
sions, or between S00.000 and 900.
000, have already been engaged in
the battle on the German side and
the widespread call for fresh troops
makes it plain that the fighting
forces are being rapidly used up in
the terrific and costly onslaught.
Forty divisions of the German re
serve are reported to have been
thrown into the line as early as the
second day cf the battle.
The rearward movement in the
face of the Teutonic attack has now
brought the allied armies well to
ward the edge of their former battle
lines m the Somme area and in the
devastated region to the southwest.
Field Marshal Haig reports the
new British line drawn somewhat to
the east of Albert and Rove. Paris
indicates the French fighting front
as extending southward from Chaul
nes, past Noyon, which has been
evacuated by the French and then
running eastward along the south
ern bank of the river Oise.
The German troops have been re
ported as rapidly tiring from their
breathless plunge into the entente
lines and they were evidently fore
ed to take a breathing spell last
night opposite the British front, as
the London noon day statement re
ports the fighting to have died down.
This morning, however, fresh forc
es probably had been brought up
and the attack was being resumed
south of the Somme in the Roye and
It is in this sector and in the Noy
on region that the German wedge is
being driven in hardest and it is
here, or on the line to the east,
should the Germans further expose
their left wing, that the weight of
the expected counter blow may fall.
The French on their line are hold
ing the line of the Oise strongly.
Their artillery is cutting swaths in
the German columns and the French
infantry is making frequent counter
attacks, inflicting heavy losse upon
the Germans and retarding their ad
vance. The British evidently are main
taining their marked superiority in
the air on the battle front and are
Oirowing the German supply stations
and lines of communication in the
rear into confusion by air attacks
at close range.
(Hi the extreme north and in the
center the German progress has been
appreciably slower, while around
Bapaume, on the old battlefield of
the Somme. and east and north of
Noyon the enemy has made gains hut
only at the cost of a fearful toll ex
acted by machine guns and artil
lery. The fighting on these sectors
continues of the most severe charac
ter. Southeast of Arras the British
line has yielded only about three
miles at the greatest depth since
Saturday, immediately west of the
Somme, south of Perrone, the Ger
mans suffered heavily in forcing a
crossing of the river and seemingly
have not been able to advance as
fast as they did before the river was
In the Bapaume region the Ger
mans have driven a long salient in
toward Longueval and have widened
it somewhat southward in the direc
tion of Peronne. However, unless
the salient is widened still more it
may prove a menace to the enemy as
the British line still is holding well
to the north and the south.
. On the low-lying ground between
the Somme and the Oise, where the
French have come to assist the Brit-
AND WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU!
You Get Full Implement Performance
You Can Avoid tbe Biff Loss that is' Caused by Using Even
One Faulty Implement.
Your farm implements, taken
all together, form a great crop
making machine, each part of
which is dependent on the oth
er. The whole is no better than
the poorest implement in it.
Poor seed-bed making by an
inferior plow, for instance, will
make it impossible for your
planter and cultivator to give
the profit that they should give.
Likewise, inaccurate planting
will lessen the returns from the
best of seed beds and thorough
And a cultivator that will not ,
destroy weeds and conserve
moisture without injuring the
crop plants cuts the profit from
the use of your other imple
ments. Thus it is with practically
every implement on your farm.

plements and mean the loss of
ish, the Germans have reached Nesle
and Guiseard, the British and French
falling back under orders, but re
sisting the oncoming enemy forces
strongly. Around Chauny the Ger
mans apparently have made no effort
to cross the Oise and strike south and
the French north of the Oise prob
ably are falling back to it toward
the old line as it existed before the
German retreat of last March.
In their original attack the Ger
mans made their strongest efforts
immediately west of Cambrai and be
tween St. Quentin and La Fere and
drove forward on those sectors in the
form of the well known "pincers"
operations. The British, however,
met this by retiring in the center
toward Somme. eluding the jaws of
the pincers and forcing the German
advance to take the form of a wedge
with a blunt apex and wide wings.
In Palestine British troops cross
ing the river Jordan in force north
of Jericho are within three miles of
Essalt, south of Mount GileaJ. They
have now covered nearly half the
distance between the river and the
