ed to win a showy success that might
be dished up in a manner to quiet, for
,the moment, the threatening murmurs
of the people of the central empires.
Thert is no doubt that the allied
front along the Aisne has been weakly
held, General Foch was perfectly sound
in his judgment in weakening it. He
has had to do this in order to insure
the safety of the. channel ports, which
is the paramount consideration. The
Germans choose the Aisne for their
camouflage victory undoubtedly because
it was the least strongly held part of
the front within range of the Teutonic
reserves in western France.
COUGHS WASTE ENERGY
Careful physicians always point
cut that every cough wears human
strength and tears down the body's
resistive powers. 1 he reason
is always best for coughs is that
it peculiarly soothes the tender
membranes while its rich,
creamy food rebuilds the
tissues to avert bronchitis
and lung trouble.
No alcohol just food.

AND SAVE BIG MONEY
The success of the Germans along the
Aisne must he regarded as the price
the allies are paying for the security
of the channel coast.
It is also an acknowledgement by
Von Hindenburg that he cannot disre
gard the. clamorous cries of the Germans
to be fed with mora tales of victory,
although , sound military policy is
against the sacrifices such futile suc
cesses require. The strategic situntion,
in fact, seems to be getting out of Von
Hindenburg's reach and is becoming
political in its' purposes. This is always
a bad sign and not infrequently is the
forerunner of disintegration.
The Germans have succeeded by the
present operations in cutting the rail
way between Soissons and Bhcims. This
Is an important line of communication,
serving the southern front of the allies
in France. It has been cut, however,
at only one point, Fismes. The sectors
to the east and west are still well with
in the safety zone. The capture of the
environs of Fismes is far from repre
sonting a major success. It may Bet the
Kerlin crowds cheering, but the reaction
will be all the more dangerous when
Berlin has had timie to realize in sober
S'ltnce how meaningless has been the
uew sacrifice of German manhood.

The Getiuau attack has expended

(lStf.3 miles) across.
There is every indication that the
present attack is an iutegral part of
tho original German offensive plan. It
is positively known that during the
winter Ludendortff prepared two great
attacks, ono against Amiens and tho
other against Kheims. He concentrat
