Aug. 2i. (Night.) Onc more surprise
today lengthened the list the British
are visiting upon tho ilermnns on tho
old .Sonime battle field.
At 3 a. m. another six miles were
added to tho battle line in tho region
of tho Hcarpe. Hut this wns not a
surprise, as the Germans apparently hud
been expecting it.
The surprise camo when the moon
suddenly broke trough tho clouds a
bovo Grange hill, Chapel hill and tlio
landers surging to the attack.
Save when the moon appeared at
this moment, illuminating the earth,
the early morning advance was mndo
in the densest tlurkuss. The British
plans wero kept eipiully dark, One
prisoner testified to tho Binazement
felt by the bodies when they discover
ed the identify of the on coming troops.
Tho Cnuadiuiia only recently wero
known to be near Amiens, where they
participated gloriously in the opening
of Iho present offensive, while tho
Highlanders were lust heard from har
assing tho Gorman lino fur to tho south
ward. Passing through Arras today I saw
a column of a thousand prisoners, head
ed by a dozen officers. Their general
physique was poor, in contrast to the
prisoners taken farther north.
