A WAR OK ACTION
. 'War," wrote Marshal Foch before
the present conflict, "positive in its
. nature, permits only of positive an
swers. There is no result witnout
cause; if you seek the result, develop
the cause employ force. If you wish
your opponent to withdraw, beat him;
otherwise nothing is accomplished.
r and ther is only one means to that end
the battle. There is do victory with
out battle."
In another place he wrote, "Of all
military mistakes, one only is dis-
graceiui inacuon.
., : w
There you have the commander-in-
chief of the allied armies. He has
been well described as "an offensive
fighter." He waa always that in the
ory, in the days when the war was to
Franca a purely theoretical matter.
He put hie theory into practice in the
first battle of the Marne. He gave it
renewed application in the second
Mftu htle. Ha is re-emohasizinc
it today in Picardy. 1
Fxpsapw a, thank Heaven, . this
is to be a war of action, with the al
lies determining the action. The long,
disheartening period of defensive ef
fort and fererred hope is at an end.
n 1 &1 . Via
man. Foch, biding his time, at last
is able to carry the war to the enemy,
and We may depend on it that hence
forth that enemy will have no rest
until he lays down his arms in ex
haustion and defeat.
,
THE ' OMEN OF CAVALRY
The one best word in the war aews
nowadays is cavalry. Its almost daily
appearance in news dispatches from
the front is the real proof that the tide
has turned. It is evidence enough
that the German trench line, for four
years the" ufldry of beleagured ter
ritory, 1s not impregnable,
o The mention of cavalry in a dis
patch from the front means that there
a jignung in whs upcu, uu, mw ua.
of the sniper, the sapper and the mine
thrower is done for a time. It means
that there are battles on, rather than
slowly-progressing sieges, and that
the Germans are at last on their way
to the Rhine.
. Foch, almost alone among the great
commanders of the war, is not a cav
alryman, but the allied generalissimo
' is showing an appreciation of caval
ry's capabilities as keen even as that
of Sir John French or the Grand Duke
, Nicholas, or Hindenburg. To him the
cavalrymen are the light reserves, the
mobile forces which may be shifted uo
and down the line as the German
pressure varies or the allied advance
develops, flung into a gap ahead of
foot-slogging infantry to hold a stra
tegic point until the guns come up, or
' shoved through a break in the German
line to outflank artillery, cut com
munications, or harrass retiring in
fantry. Foch's conception of the function of
cavalry is not Napoleonic. He does
not hold his horsemen for that knock
out blow which concluded almost ev
ery pitched battle of a century ago.
Foch works, rather, as did Sheridan
and Kilpatrick, Jeb Stuart and For
rest. His cavalry is simple mounted
infantry which rides to battle and
fights on foot. .
Of course, the French and British
mounted men in his armies carry
sabres and lances for use in the oc
casional charge, but they carry rifles
and shovels, too. Their part, indeed,
is "to get there first with the most
men," as the Confederate General
' Forrest, himself a great cavalryman,
said when he undertook the definition
of strategy.
' Foch is a master strategian. ' His
use of cavalry is one of the evidences.

LONDON, Aug. IS) Private Geo.

Modern war conditions demand that our armies must have behind them na
tional solidarity, the coordination of all the vast activities and an indus
trial army many timea greater than the Nation's fighting forces.
The Nation's capital la linked with all these varied activities by the toll
and long distance lines of the Bell System. Thousands of miles of special
wire systems have been turned over to the Government for its exclusive
use. Switchboards in the Government departments at Washington have
been enlarged and new ones installed. Right of way is given to Govern
ment business over all commercial lines, so that the Government chiefs
may keep in constant touch with every phase ef the Nation's great task
and direct its progress Intelligently and effectively.
In organizing the military activities of the country, the Government has
had the effective cooperation of the Bell Telephone System, whioh even
In peace timea reached 70,000 communities and now extends to the head
quarters of every Army Department and Naval District rn the Uaited States.

Team Drowned at
Harrobunr Sawmill
A very unusual accident occurred at
the llarriahurg sawmill Tuesday eve
ning. Fred Gould arrived at the mill
with a load of logs at 4 o'clock ami
after unloading the logs left his team
standing near the millpond while he
waa shoveling some eawdust out of
the way. The team, becoming rest
less or frightened, tacked the hravv
logging wagon over the high em
bankment into the millpoml, which is
about 12 feet deep, and both horses
were drowned. The horses and wa
gon were dragged from the water by
a logging cable. The loss fulls heav
ily upon Mr. Gould, who only recently
purchased the fine young team which
was valued at $400. Bulletin.

WITH THE AMERICANS, Aug. 10.
The colonel of this particular regi
ment was a sociable sort of person
not meaning to say the colonels of the
other regiments are not and intro
duced such of the underufficers as
happened to be with him.
"This is Lieut. Lee," said he of one.
The lieutenant was a well-built, large
framed young man with a broad,
pleasant face and a quiet, courteous
manner. He allowed the others to do
most of the talking, but waa not in
the least tonguetied when drawn into
the conversation.
"Nice sort of fellow, Lieut. Lee," 1
remarked later. '
"That's Robert E. Lee," was the re
sponse. "Any particular Robert E. Lee?"
"Rather. He's the grandson of
THE Robert E. Lee."
