FARIS, Oct. t Seven mines, earh cnn

the signal was Riven for the Trench ad

leaped out of their trenches and made
for the Gorman trenches before a foret.
"The Oermane bolted through the
iroods pursued by our first .' 8ac
tkins of the second "ware" explored the
ruined trenches and underground shelters,
which often were twenty feet deep. As
they had no desire to go down Into
these holes, whence it seemed unlikely
they would come out alive, our men
dropped bombs and fired shotguns
through the openings, which effectively
prevented the occupants from coming
ut and taking us In the rear.
"The bulk of our men followed the Oer
mans, who were running like hares
through the woods. They soon cap
tured the second line of trenches In the
middle of the forest and went on, some
even crossing the Roaches brook or corn-
Inn up the sunken road leading to Anre

and tried to surround ub. This maneju.

who drew out men back to the first line

"During the night the Hermans forti
fied themselves In the woods, but at day
break our artillery stopped their work
by a furious bombardment. The even
ing before the forest presented the or
dinary aspect, but In a few mlnutrs all
was changed. One after another ths trees
were mowed down by sheila
"The Oerman artillery was not Idle
either, but sent at us a steady strcsm of
shells, which plowed up the earth all
around us without doing much harm.
This fire was borne phillsophlcally, for

"At 1 o'clock In the afternon the g'ini
ceased firing and were ordered to at
tack again. Machine guns, which the
Germans had placed on their flanks,
soon were put out of action. It was
difficult going In the woods. The men
stumbled over branches, but on the
other hand holes torn In the ground by
shells gave shelter against machine gun
fire. These guns were cunningly con
cealed In pits covered with steel plates.
! The barrels, protruding throush narrow
slits, were Invisible from a distance and
: they sent at us a withering fire. But our
men did not hesitate. From behind tree
stumps and from the pita they kept hurl
Ing a constant stream of bombs and
soon drove the Germs ns out of ths

LONDON. Oct. t lUlstlve and friends
of rtrltlsh soldiers, who have taken part
In the fierce; fighting of the past few
days In Northern France, have begun to
receive letters from the fortunate ones,
who went unscathed through the attacks,
while the casualty lists of .those who met
with disaster are being collected at the
war office and sent to their relatives.
Further consignments of wounded ar
rived at London at midnight. A pic
turesque story of the fighting at Ilooge
was told by one of these men, a terri
torial, with six wounds In one arm In
flicted by a type of bomb known as the
"Because we took trenches and didn't
hold them," he said, "don't Imagine
there was anything amiss at Ilooge. All
U going well and If there had been no
such thing as machine guns we would
have gone straight through the whole
Herman line and now be on our way to
Iterlln. These trenches which we gave
up we can take again, and what Is more
we can hold them when we want to do
so. We don't give tip ground except on
orders from superior officers, who some
times decide the situation In adjoining
parts of, the line does not Justify the re
tention of certain advanced positions.
"It ut ridiculous to hear some peopk
talk about our ttark being a surprise
to the Uermans. It wis so fsr from a
surprise that the Germans had already
brought up tremendous reinforcements
against us tn Saturday.
"The only orders I remember were a
preliminary 'get ready, and then the
sharp command 'get over.'
"We Jumped the parapet without any
superfluous motions, and then, like a
flash, the whole front moved forward
straight across the eighty yards which
separated us from the enemy's trenches.
Then It was bayonet work, and after an
Incredlably short time -we were fight:ng
fiercely between the second and third
line of German trenched."
