British Front in France, Oct. 21
(Via London, Oct. 23. With the re
turn of fighting weather, the British
resumed the offensive on a larger
scale this afternoon and turned on
enough gunfire and sent in enough
troops to make sure Regina trench
was theirs. It was the most Impqp-H
taut attack for three weeks.
All this month Regina trench has
been developing sinister reputation.
It joins on to the old first line fortifi
cations in the neighborhood of Thiep
val and anything in that region, with
comfortable 'dugouts, the Germans
like to retain in order to preyent the
active battle front from broadening
and for another reason which a Brit
ish soldier expressed when he said:
"With winter coming on we feel the
need of those deep, saug dugouts the
Germans spent so much ,time in build
ing." Big Bite Required.
Parties of the British got possession
of portions of Regina trench on sev
eral occasions, but the Germans
swarmed in front of their burrows and
repulsed the invaders. Evidently
Kegina trench was not to be taken by
nibbling and required one big bite. In
such cases there is nothing to do but
wait till clear weather when the gun
ners can see what they are doing and
turn on a number one artillery curtain
Yesterday morning a set gunner's
smile was on the face of the whole
army. Instead of rain and mist mak
ing a gunner's bane of low visibility,
an almost wintry sun was shining in
crystal clear air literally an artillery
All the gun tribe necessary for the
job were up and in position already
waiting ior such a day as this, when
the eyes that see for them from the
observation posts can tell whether the
practice shells they leisurely fire are
on the target which they are to paste
as far as they can see on the signal be
ing given for the concert to begin.
When the same kind of weather con
tinued today, staff officers who ar
range these affairs said:
Moving Day for Germans.
"This is moving day for the Ger
mans in Regina trench."
The Regina is a long trench of near
ly three miles about the same length
as the battle front at Gettysburg.
Shortly after noon, when there had
been the usual amount of shell fire all
morning and nothing anywhere on the
landscape to show that anything un
usual was going to happen, a number
one curtain fire was suddenly turned
on, with the same effect on the ear
as when all the whistles of New York
start when the clock strikes twelve on
New Year's eve. The usual billowy
cloud of shell smoke, vaporously ex
tensive in the cold air, churned and
whipped the length of Regina trench,
with the customary accuracy of these
swathes of death and tempest, and
then the British infantry were in full
possession of the trench.
Some Germans bolted from the first
ugly breath of that barrage, knowing
from experience that the only thing
to do was to move on to another posi
tion and force the gunners to prepare
another deluge for the next step of
the entente allied offensive. Six hun
dred left alive were taken prisoner.
Fires Are Pleasant.
The gunners are smiling at the stars
tonight, which promise another fair
day tomorrow. The cold weather has
transformed the armv into a winter
chrysalis. The battalions are march
ing up the trenches all wearing their
overcoats. The call is for more choco
late and more bacon sizzling in pans
in the dugouts. The gunners, who
were stripped for their work in Au
gust, now warm their hands on the
heated gun barrels.
At night on the field where fires
are permitted, the men gather around
the blaze of any wood they can gather.
Those digging trenches on the ground
won don't mind how cold it is so long
as the ground is not soaked by rain.

Rev. Robert F. Leavens For

of First Church.
FLAM TO BUILD A CHURCH
With impressive services yesterday
at 11 a. m. in Turpin's hall. Twenty-
eighth and Farnam street, Rev. Robert
French Leavens, who came to Oma
ha recently from Fitchburg, Mass.,
was installed as minister of the First
Unitarian church of Omaha. For
about eighteen months the church has
been without a minister.
Rev. Lewis G. Wilson of Boston,
an official of the American Uniterian
association, officiated at the exer
cises, which were largely attended.
The services opened with a hymn and
invocation by Dr. Leavens ind the
prayer of '.installation was given by
the Rev. Mr. Wilson. This was fol
lowed by a vocal solo by Mrs. O. W.
Eldridge and a sermon by the Rev.

between members of the congregation
and the minister, and he assured Mr
Leavens that he would receive hearty
support in his work: Rabbi Fred
erick Cohn extended a welcome on
behalf of the city. Rev. Ernest C.
Smith was to have spoken on behalf
of the western conference of the Uni
tarian church, but he was unable to
be present. The exercises closed with
a violin solo by George Barker, Jr.,
and benediction by the minister.
Plans for the future activities of
the church have already been put into
effect by the newly-installed pastor.
Sunday school has been organized
and will beam November 5. with a
corps of carefully chosen teachers and
a carefully selected course ot study.
The work is in charge of a committee
headed ty the new minister.
The Woman's alliance, of which
Mrs. George Holdrege is prominent,
will continue its work and the board
of trustees will hold weekly meetings.

the natural beauty of their hair by
careful shampooing, not with any
soap or makeshift, but with a simple
mixture which they make up for them
selves by putting a teaspoonful of can
throx (which they get from the drug
gist) in a cup of hot water and apply
ing this instead of soap. After its use
their hair dries rapidly, with uniform
color. Dandruff, excess oil and dirt
are dissolved and entirely disappear.
The hair is so fluffy that it looks
much heavier that it is. Its lustre
and softness is delightful, while the
stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth. Adv.
