of the Oerman lines northeast of Tpres
was tsken yesterday, according to of
ficers who have arrived In Paris from
the bsttle line:
A series of light four-Inch guns. three
Inch field batteries, eech Invisible from
the front, were disposed behind the nat
ural cover of undulations In the field, bits
of wood, ruined farm houses or dry ra
vines The guns, working to their full
capacity of four shells to the minute,
sprayed bursting projectiles over the
German trenches In a wide belt before,
over and Just behind the carefully dug
and roofed field works that Is tha usual
thing with tha adversaries. The Oerman
Infantry, as long as they kept Inside '.he
covered trenches, were secure, except
from the chance of shells falling di
rectly through the narrow spars left for
rifle and machine gun fire.

The French Infantry, from the rear of
their own line of trenches, got up as If
for the usual run for tha Oerman lines.
Ths French guns, at a moment agreed
upon, ceased their fire, and tha Oer

was coming, ordered up their reserve In

The French Infantry, although firing
heavily, did not charge. The French ar

trenches caught the German reserves

their works, with a shattering shell fire,
which broke formations and seemed to
bring down a third of tha men In the line.
They simply could not advance through

The pushing of tha Oermana out of

The "Blue Devlla," as the Germans call

tha Vosgea, sgaln Justified the terror In
which they are held by the enemy. They
led the final rush which forced tha last
of the Oermana out of French Lorraine.

before the coming diet:
" 'In tha next budget no proposal for
