one thing in particular- that every
American tourist should see the Pa

Kogue Illver valley nnd Crater hike,
before going to Kurope. Her com

toured Kurope, Asia and Africa sev

she is over 70 years old, she looks
nml nets more like one of 50, as she
is so very ngile, friendly and con
versational. She nttrihutes nil good
health and activity to her mode of

LONDON, Sept. 2.1. S-.a." n. in.
TJio Amicus correspondent of the
Times telegraphs that heavy fight
ing is in progress not ninny miles
fouthenst of Amiens. Ho says:
"It Is the beginning of n decisive
phase of the linttlo of tlio Alsnc. On
tlio Issue of this fighting depends
the continued occupation of French
soil by tlio Gorman Invaders or of
their retrent to strongly entrenched
positions which hnvo been prepared
for them on the Satnhre.
"Since tlio Germans evacuated
Amiens a week ago the town has be
come nn Important center for French
military operations. Though the
Amiens district Is well served with
railways, It Is the highways that
count now, as the railway bridges
hnvo for the most part been blown up
and not yet repaired. '
"On Thursday last French rein
forcements under co nun nnd of Gen
eral D'Amado entered Amiens from
tho west nnd after a short stay re
sumed their ninrch, proceeding aloup.
one of the eastern roads to n desti
nation which can only be conjectured.

"The enemy occupied Doual ye
tcrdny morning and seized the rail
way station nt Soualn, on tho line
connecting Doual with Valenciennes.
It appears thorefore thnt tho Ger
mans arc nlhe to the necessity of
protecting their Hue of conuuunlcn
tlon to Mons, where headquarters of
tho field army has been established.
Thus tho German line has been ex
tended north from Cambral, which
has been occupied In force.
"Wo learned today that a great
battle had begun and It was rumored
that the German troops had advanced
as far as Mont Dldler. Hvery road
out of Amiens was barred by pickets,
no vehicle being allowed to pass with
out military authority."
