As always, the attacks possessed
the advantage of knowing exactly
where they could launch their on
slaught, while the defenders were
compelled to await development of
the battle before meeting the onrush
with counter measures. There is
every sign in todays situation that
the terrific attack, in which appar
ently somewhere in the neighborhood
of 1,000,000 Germans of all arms
are engaged, is being slackered. The
resistance of the allies seems firmer
and the arrival on the scene of
French reserves, sent up to the
southern flank brought welcome support-to
the British who sustained the
first powerful rush.
The German divisions which be
gan what evidently was intended to
be an irresistible forward movement
were so cut up that they were re
placed by fresh formations.
It is these divisions which have
been checked at the position? on
which it was foreseen by the allies
generals that a stand would he made

the inhabitants had not had time or
means to Duna it up again. While
retiring across what was almost des
ert land the British inflicted enor
mous losses on the enemy, who
threw away thousands of lives in an
effort to overcome the resistance he
encountered. "When the retiring
British reached the. Somme and the
canal they turned about and gave
battle, meeting repeated and long
sustained endeavors of both infantry
and cavalry. ;
The initial rush of the enemy
seems to have been stopped. Mili
tary opinion generally is that this
first phase of the great battle, in
which even more troops were em
ployed than in the battle of the

result will be.: Nevertheless, develop

Business men are attending the
Conferences in large number, and ev

chief women are .present in every
Conference. There is but one voice
from them. It is for complete con
secration and for unstinted serv'ce.
State apportionments have been
made. They are larger than any
thing the church ever favored before,
but they are received in a spirit of
devoted courage. Reports already in
give promise of success. A western
church has already secured pledges
aggregating five times their total
missionary gifts of last year. ?This is
but one of many rays of hope already
apparent. The Disciples in this state
has held a stirring conference and
are already organizing and prosecut
