THE BEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 1918. 2 GERMANS ABANDON TRFMHES BEFORE FIRE OF AMERICANS "Peace in July" Says Letter Taken From Body of Dead German; Whole United States Front In Fever Heat at News of Great Offensive. With the American Army in France, Sunday, March 24. For the third successive day German artillery today bombarded heavily with gas shells a certain town within the American lines. Today's bombardment was made in two periods, each a half hour in length. Many gas shells and a few high explosive shells fell on the American positions. American artillery on the Toul sec-O- tor continued today to shell effective ly enemy first line and communica tion trenches, the town, St. Baussant. and the billets and dumps north of Boqueteau. Many of the American shells have fallen in the German trenches and the first two lines in, at least, one place have been virtually abandoned. One American patrol freely in spected this point in the enemy line without" molestation last night, and this morning and remained there sev eral hours. There have been no con tacts between the infantry during the last 24 hours. Bombs Rain Down. An enemy airplane early this morn ing; cut off its engines at a great height over the American lines, north west of Toul, and planned down. When close to the ground it dropped a quantity of bombsj Some were of a new variety, which explode in mid air with :. blueish-red flash and give off a cloud of mustard gas. Being v heavier than the air. the mustard gas quickly descended toward some of our battery positions and a road. Afte.- thevmachine disappeared the German gas shell bombardment be gan. Another enemy airplane hovered over the town, while the bombard ment with gas shells was in progress. Drive Off Enemy Planes. The weather was especially suitable today for aerial work and the Ger mans took advantage of it. On one portion of the sector, 14 enemy air planes crossed between noon and 6 o'clock iri the evening, while four friendly ones were over the Ameri can line in the same period. One group of seven enemy machines, ap parently on a bombing expedition, was discovered at midnight and driven off by the rapid fire of American anti aircraft guns. An American patrol has brought in quantities of valuable papers from the bodies of five Germans killed in a shell hole by American artillery fire a few days ago. Among the papers taken from an elderly soldier was a letter from his daughter, Saying: Peace In July. "We art being told now that peace will surely come in July or , August Everybody was highly elated when the news of the Russian peace was re ceived." The entire American contingent from generals to privates eagerly awaits news from the British front. All are confident that the Germans eventually will be defeated severely, even if they should strike hard at the outset. The German offensive is the sole topic of discussion on the Ameri can sector. Official communications are caught by wireless operators and newspapers are circulating rapidly along the front. You can secure a maid, stenogra pher or bookkeeper by using a Bee Want Ad. BIG GERMAN GUN ' ROUTS ALL PARIS FROM BED EARLY (Continued From I'm One.) sation xvas the new battle of the Somme, which is generally compared with Verdun. It is to be hoped that the gun which shelled Parts will very shortly be silenced, says the Figaro, which gives the following quotation from a man who was said to be in a position to know: Hunt Monster Weapon. "The 380-millimetre gun which bombarded Dunkirk two years ago from a distance of 25 miles, Avas lo cated by our airplanes and soon put out of action. The same methods will be adopted with regard to the 240 millimetre gun which has been bom barding Paris for the last two days. Since Saturday our airplanes have been looking for it and the fact that it stopped firing is due, perhaps, to their arrival. It will not be long be fore the gun is definitely placed; then its career will soon be over." The military authorities, according to another morning newspaper, are convinced that the Germans are using two new guns, while Richard Arapu, the military expert of L'Oeuvre, be lieves there is a whole battery of them. Austro-Gcrman Offensive In Italy When Weather 0. K. Washington, March 25. A formid able Austro-German offensive in Italy as soon as natural conditions permit, is forecast in official dis patches from Rome today, which say Austrian divisions continue to arrive without interruption and are, taking up positions on the front. Austro-German artillery is receiv ing reinforcements daily, the dis patches say, while new aviation camps and additional ammunition deposits are observed to be under construction. The opinion prevails in military circles at Rome that the German offensive will break with extreme violence on the Franco-British front followed by an immediate Austro German offensive on the Italian front.

I j ERE an important an- nouncement, not only to JLl.1L the woman "who har keen style judgment, but to one who is not afraid of the straight truth about garment values. f Today, in one of the very best stores in town, there is a special exhibit of Wooltex Tailored Coats and Suits. This is not merely an offering of Spring styles, but is in: tended to bring to an issue the whole question of: "What does a j woman really get for her clothes money?" ' You have read about the scarcity of wool, the difficulty in getting killed tailors in war time, the critical dye situation. And, knowing these things are soyou have been willing to pay a fair advance in price But it is not these things that de stroy real garment value half so much as certain hidden abuses right in the garment trade abuses that too few women have even had a hint of, ( Take, for instance, the fact ' that nearly two-thirds of all medium-priced Goats and Suite are cut and sewed by untrained and obscure needle-workers in the unhealthy slums of the great cities. No standards of tailoring , or fabrics are, or can be, preserved. I Jatf &0tjt$S1k sXSJSSsltf ABDSLEY TW m has the j smart' new ripple jacket, an in. stance of Wooltex clever design' ing.

Garments' made under such deplorable conditions need much pressing and stretching be fore they are presentable even for first appearance. You may be buying these slum-made garments without knowing it at the time -many a supposedly reputable store will sell them to you if they can. How can a woman avoid such farments? Where is she to go for er Spring clothes? We can tell you of one store in this f city which has now on display Coats and Suits that are designed by America's foremost fashion artists and are tai lored exquisitely of all-wool fabrics in the happy, sun-lit factories of The H.

Both were negrres from the Texas bottoms and ooth were valiant in their wishes to "get" the German emperor. If either could have stepped on him it would have ended the war. Each would have worn No 15 shoes if the army could have sup plied them. It was estimated that shoes would have to be made to order for them at a cost of a pair, and so they were sent back to the farms. new edtermination to furnish all the dollars and all the material resources of America that are needed to put an end to the execrable atrocities of Ger man militarism.
