Thursday saw both the British and
French armies in Picardy materially
develop their plan's for the eventual

The British made further gains
around Gouzecourt and east of
Epehy, while the French, striding
southeast cf St. Quentin, brought
the southern part of their nipper in
to a better position for the squeeze
against the town, which daily seem
ingly is growing nearer.
The French reached the outskirts
cf Bensy. The important town of
Contescourt was taken. Castres was
also captured.
Huns Keep to Trenches.
More than 10.0C0 prisoners and
in excess cf sixty large guns fell
into the hands of the British dur
ing the big operation begun by
Field Marshal Haig Wednesday
northwest of St. Quentin.
In addition extremely heavy cas
ualties were inflicted on the Ger
mans in the frontal attack3 and
during violent counter attacks made
by them in an endeavor to recoup
tjheir losses of ground.

Slaughter Terrific.
With the British Army In France,
Sept. 19. The'entire British opera
tion about St. Quentin has grown
into a brilliant and important suc
cess which was not forecast in the
original limited plans. Not the
least" important feature of the vic
tory was the slaughter inflicted on
the enemy forces, particularly dur
ing their frenzied counter attacks,
when they were mowed down like
wheat with the machine guns, or
swallowed up in a maelstrom of
crashing shells from the British
On the right flank there was es
pecially bitter fighting about Ilolnon
village. The British had captured
part of this place the day before,
but the Germans still held a Fection
of it, with machine guns trained
from every house.
These had to be cleared out, and
this had to ' be done systematically
by small parties who dared the hos
tile fire and bombed the Huns out of
their hiding places.
Fight At Close Quarters.
A far more serious engagement
was waged east of the village, where
the Germans had constructed a
quadrilaterial trench system, which
was heavily armed.
Here the contending forces strug
gled throughout the day at close
quarters. .
