Field Marshall's Visit Enlivens Other

Subject to Intermlttnu Shelling
imiTISH UK A I) Q IT A It T 13 It 8,
France, .Inly 10, (Correspondence)--An
otherwlso dull week at the llrlt
Ish front has been relieved by tho
visit of Field Mnrshal Lord Kitchener
which Is more Inteiestlng becauso it
Is the flint llmo ho has boon In the
area held by the Ilrltlsli troops.
Probably not one out of a hundred
soldiers saw him. The army went
on with Its work, ho saw It at work
and choso what he wished to see.
The only ceremonious affair was a
parade of Indian cavalry which Lord
Kitchener reviewed. Ah thoro Is no
speed limit on the main roads In tho
military zone ho was not long in get
ting from point to point. When ho
left the car to go on foot, tho offi
cers conducting him found It took
n good pedestrian to keep up.
liitoirstcil In Trendies
Kitchener showed particular Inter
est In the trenches, fortifications and
all tho conditions actually rotating to
tho renl fighting. It was a ticklish
moment for his nldc, nifd tho officers
In command of that section when ho
went to Ypres, which Is still subject
ed to Intermittent shelling. It In cer
tain that If tho Germans had known
of his presenco they would havo giv
en more than a snluto of seventeen
guns to which tho secretary for war
Tho field marshal plckod his way
through tho former streets, among
the wrecKago, saw a 17-lnoh shell
hole In tho plaza, the remains of tho
Cloth Hall and other sights, an Im
pressive exnmplo of tho destructive
power of modorn sholl fire.
Kiicmy Is Unseen
It happened whon Kitchen was vis
iting u hoavy battory a characteristic
action of tronch warfaro developed
on tho only part of tho lino that has
scon any action this week. At I'll
kon, north of Ypres, tho Gormans
commanded two small hills, which
gavo tlioni a punishing advantage
over tho Ilrltlsli trenches In their
front. Tho Hrltish determined to try
to rectify tliolr lino and after tho
usual artillery preparation, thoy
charged and by a fieo uso of bombs;
took 2&0 yards of German tronchos,
SO prisoners and two mncbluo guns.
Tho battery which Kitchener was vis
iting was called upon to assist In
the work of repulslng.tho counter at

Tho war minister saw no more of
