Up to the present time we have been pre

Italy took 1.516, against 13,378. a year ago,

The supply of cotton during the year of

PARIS, Spt. 14. In the opinion
of tbe bfst military observers ber
the German army under command
fcrown Prince Frederick JsVilllain is
In a critical position.
The French have driven the Ger-
ans from their positions north of
helms and threaten hie line of re
treat to the west of the Argoune
region, apd it is felt that he is liable
to be surrounded and forced to ca
pitulate. This would result la break
ing tbe German host in two. The
alternative before tho crown prince
would bo to try to force his way
through south of Verdun, a desperate
expedient in view of the Imposing
array of torts at this point.
Unrelenting pursuit of the rapidly
retreating 'German armies by the
British and French forces continued
today with extraordinary vigor, ac
cording to the French view,
Despite the great numbers compos
ing their various armies which oper
ated together against tbe allies, flie
German withdrawing movement is
being carried out with great rapidity
and cleverness. The main body ap

. So far as known the tiering Invaders,
who after wonderful forced msrehea Into
France, made such a stern attempt, to
break tfirougb the solid lines of the allies,
defending Paris, have abandoned morn
than sixty cannon of various calibre and
thirty thousand men because 'of their ex
hausted horses were, unable to drag thm
fast enough to keep up even with the font
weary Infantry. Enormous amounts ofl
sm munition and war stores also were left
on tho rout of the Germans, which Is
through a difficult, marshy country,
rendered almost Impassable In some places
by tho heavy rains of' the last few days
snd which threaten to continue.
The allies, 011 the other Uand, are ss.
fcerted lo have displayed no signs of
fatigue. They are represented as stirred
by unexpectedly great victories to such a
state of elation that they are aide to keep
close on the h4 ls of the retiring srmy,
harrasslng them day and night, rutting
off detachments and attempting to Inter
uose between them and tho frontier.
