Rulon Smith and Virgil Lundell,

am with a bunch of California boys

these young soldiers is carried
across, the Kaiser cannot last long."
R. G. Saling has purchased and

By Allies After a Bitter
Paris. The town of FUm, Ger
many's great storehouse on the Also
Msrne bsttls front, has been taken by
the French and American troops, ac
cording to the French official com
munication. The Americans covered themwlvos
with glory In the band-to-hand right
ing In tha streets of Flimea when they
captured that German base. The fight
ing Is said to have been the bittercat
of the whole war, the Prussian guard
asking no quarter and being bayonet
ted or clubbrd to death as they stood
by their machine ruiir.
Flumes waa taken after a heavy ar
tillery fight. When the Americans de
cided to advance It was after careful
preparation and under a sweeping bar
rage of ahrapnel and gaa, the Infantry
advanced. There waa opposition from
machine guns, but the Americans
quickly silenced them.
The Veale river, which was flooded
owing to the recent heavy ralna, ham

were unable to ford the stream.. Moat
of those Germans were killed and the
rest were made prisoners.
