It would be Impracticable to open nny

French Have Devised a Way to Pull
Down German Entanglements.
Paris.—! was talking with a group of
soldiers from tbe front and In tbe
course of their stories of life In tbe
trenches one of them told me of nu in
genious device with which they have
been tearing down tbe German barbed
wire entanglements, writes a corre
spondent at tbe front.
There are hundreds o f miles of these
barriers In front of the German
trenches In France and Belgium, and
they bring tbe most Impetuous bayonet
charge to a standstill until a way Is
cut through them.
Now. I am told, tbe French are ex
perimenting with an appliance similar
to a rocket apparatus, which throws a
grappling Iron attached to a rope over
tbe entanglements, which are then
dragged down and hauled Into the al-
I lee’ trenches.
I was not able to ascertain whether
this appliance was In general use or
wns only tbe Inspiration of the local
commander at tbe point from which
these men come.
