THE TURNING OF THE TIDE.
! Our boys have done some hard fighting within the
past two'months but the battle so magnificently won yes
terday was the first really big fight, as fights are count
ed in this war, in which they have engaged. All Ameri
cans knew the boys would give a good account of them
selves, and would do all that it is possible for men to do,
but even the most enthusiastic American scarcely real
' ized the fineness of che metal in them. The German su
per-man has met his superior, and the beginning of the
that carried everything before it and resulted in the cap
ture of Soissons and 30,000 prisoners besides perhaps
ten thousand more in the battles of the day before, and in
the fighting along other parts of the front, is one of the
notable events of the war. Of course this victory was
not due to American efforts alone, for the gallant poilus
stood shoulder to shoulder with them and chased the
fleeing Huns with desperate energy. However it must
be remembered that the presence and example of the Am
ricans put new life, new hope and a new fighting spirit
into the French, who for four desperate years have put
up as gallant a fight as history records. It would be
worth something to have been in Paris last night and to
have experienced and lived the gladsome hours of a re
juvenated and rejoicing city. On this side of the ocean
far from the scenes of war, the rejoicing is just as heart
felt if not so exuberant, and from one edge of the con
tinent to the other every American heart beats more rap
idly, and every eye is dimmed with tears from the depths
wherein lie feelings too deep for other expression.
The victory is great, and its effects may be such that
the end will be hastened. The German army is in a pock
et from which it may find it difficult to extricate itself.
A few miles further drive on the American front will en
.danger the lines of communication, over which the Ger
man armies receive their supplies and munitions, and if
1hese lines are broken it will require heroic efforts for
the Germans to save themselves. It looks very much as
though they would have to fall back or risk capture or
annihilation. Then, too, the moral eltect on tne uerman
people once they learn of the magnitude of their defeat,
and that the boasted drive of Hindenburg which was to
give them victory and peace, has resulted only in the de
struction or loss of thousands of the flower of the German
army, is a factor that cannot be measured. The victory
yesterday brings the end appreciably nearer.
The decisive day of the big battle is at hand. The
Germans are rushing great bodies of reserves to assist
in checking the Franco-American advance. That the
drive may be checked is possible, but at the same time the
tirawine of anv great number of reserves from the
E helms front may lead to a smash by the British that will
iolt the Huns still harder. If the American-French drive
is not checked by this last move, the' German lines of com
munication will be in danger and another Sedan in iis
results may follow, with the Germans playing the former

THE SURPRISE PARTY.
Said Kaiser Karl, "My soldiers bold, I know you're
mighty hollow; I'm not surprised your feet are cold, since
you ve no grub to swallow. Our Austria is short of pies,
it s stripped of kraut and bacon; there s not enough to
draw the ilies its bare and God forsaken. But Italy
has lood to burn, beyond those Alpine craters! The win
erwurst for which you yearn, the prunes and sweet po
tatoes! .You know how Kaiser Wilhelm went and swip
ed the Russian larder! Go, scale the Alps with fell intent,
with glowing zeal and ardor! Italians are an easy mark,
they'll all stampede together; get after them, and skies
now dark will let in sunny weather." His soldiers took
him at his word (the hint could not be broader), their
famished loins began to gird, and started out for fod
der. They thought to find a Russia there, disorganized
and rattled, and they would strip the cupboard bare when
for a day they'd battled. But Italy was on her toes, with
lust for fight aquiver; she climbed all up and down the
foes, and chased them in the river. Survivors of the hosts
of Karl toil home, too sick to utter, to scrape again the
empty bar'l, and hunt bones in the gutter.
Too bad the Oregonian editor is not in charge of the
war department and boss of all munition and machine
factories. Had he been, there would have been no
delays in any line. He admits it himself. .However, we
seem to have a pretty respectable army of Yanks over
here as it is.

(Monday A Bi of Gossip.)
The old idea that malarial fever
or malarial poisoning was tluo to
bad air, has been exploded by the
investigations of Laverau, Reed,
Gorgaa and others.
Malarial fever, when ' well
marked, has chill, fever and sweat
ing in succession every day, every
second day, or every third day.
Besides, there may be attacks at
Irregular intervals or with only
dull, unpleasant feelings, especially
when the patient's resisting powers
are good, or the poison mild.
Malarial poisoning is not due to
bad air, but to infectious parasites,
called Plasmodia, In the blood
They are Introduced Into the
body by means of the bite of mos
quitoes of the Anopheles variety,
and attack and destroy the red cor
puscles of the blood.
Laveran discovered them In 1S82.
Malarial fever is a tropical disease,
but occurs wherever there are mos
quitoes of the Anophelet breed, In
swamps, forests, lowlands, and
wherever conditions favor the de
velopment of mosquitoes.
.They are found In cold climates
like Alaska, but we do not usually
associate them with cold climates
and high latitudes.
The Isthmus of Panama was the
most mosquito-ridden country In
the world, and Us malaria would
take the prize for severity and fa
tality, but It was drained, cleaned
up and freed from mosquitoes by
Gorgas and is now as healthy as
any other part of the U. S., which,
hows that malaria can be- con
trolled. Some people still believe It Is
caused by drinking water contami
nated by infectious germs or by
breathing Infected air.
It attacks light skinned people

who dig or delve in the soil, especi

It occurs in several different
