WAR ITEMS. I FRENCH MAN-POWER. I In regard to reserves (writes Mr. E. Aehmead-Bartlett, with the French Armies), the French are much better off than the Gernxaiis. They have employed but few of their 1916 class; the w hole of the 1917 class is fully trained and intact, and no call has been made on the 1918 class. I have just returned from a visit to tie ram us Moroccan division, which con tains two regiments of the Foreign Legion. No division has distinguished it- self more during the war, and it has been mentioned three times in despatch- es. Side by side in the ranks I found Americans, Frenchmen, Greeks, Ruman- ians, Serbians, Russians, Danes, and men from. Argentina. There are but few Englishmen because the latter have naturally joined units of their own army but one battalion is commanded by a Scotsman,, who has greatly distinguished himself and who has been mentioned in despatches three times. He started life as a second lieutenant in the West Rid- ing Regiment. The colonel of one regiment had a line of ten men all from different countries drawn up for our inspection. Each one of these men had been rewarded for gal- lantry in the field. MORE WOOL COMMANDEERED. I The Army Contracts Departments have I practically completed arrangements fur securing control of skin-wool that is wool pulled from the skin of daad sheep in this counto-y. Wools pulled before October l#t will net come under the operations of the new scheme, which will be carried out through the machinery recantly set up for acquiring possession of the home-grown ck p. Prices will be hasod on the av»rag« quotation ruling kt 1913-14, plus 35 per cent. Officials will (ieal direct with the fellmi&ngers, the merchants being eliminated firom tÀCI business. As in the case of the home- grow-wool acquisition scheme, tke coun- try vyll be divided into suitable adminis- trative area3—of wkiah tkere will be five in Sn^larwl and Wa.Lat—with separ- ate arrtjaa fer Sootlaad and Irdand.

I Mr. Lloj«d George Tnapaoting a dfe- tachnienfc of the Surwy Voletwbeer POgi- meiit, aaid in the course of an address, that in the course of aboat 48 months we hnd trained and equipped «f»e ef the finest arises the world bad ever we, an artay whaae deeds would be felt for oeatHries throughout the world. We entered this war reluctantly, whiok was right, aa war was not a timg bo entei light-hea,rtedly, but iiev we are in it, we were detenmined to emerge from it triuimpheTitly. Frwn what he kad uteen during kia receRt visit to France of the British and French Armies and some of the German Army, although prisoners, fns opinion wa!s confirmed that victory for us was certain, but we must con- tinue to exert ourselves to the utmost for tttat glorious end. WOUNDED PRUSSIAN GUARDS AT I POTSDAM. Mr Curtin, the "Daily Mail" emis- sary who has spent ten months in Germany, describes the arrival of wounded of the Prussian Guard from the Somme at Potsdam. He says:— It was the visages of the men on the stretchers that riveted my at- tention I never saw so many men so completely exhausted. Not one pair of lips relaxed into a, smile, and not an eye lit up with the glad recog- nition of former surroundings. It was not however, the lines of suffering in those faces that impressed me, but that uncany sameness of ex- pression, an expression of hopeless glQQm so deep that it made me forget that the sun was shining from an un- clouded sky. The depection. of the police, of the soldier onlookers, of the walking wounded, and those upturned faces on the white pillows told as plainly as words could ever tell that the Guard had at last met a force superior to themselves and their war machine. They knew well that they were the idol of their Fatherland, and that they had fought with every ounce of their great physical strength, backed by their long traditions. They had been vanquished by an army of more sportsmen. I REGIMENT WIPED OUT. Stubborn fighting goes on almost with out cessation in the region above and around Thiepval, as it has gone on for 12 days now since or capture of the held it proudly for two y^ars. The 180th Regiment is not fighting in that sector now, which is not surprising, I told you at the time that nearly 1,000 of the regiment were prisoners in our hands. To-day I have heard that by actual count the German dead in Thiep- val and immediately around it number 1,800. Some of these last are not men of the 180th, but the great majority are, and, allowing for all deductions, it is evident that not many men of the 180th can have survived other than as prisoners, the fall of their fortress. At Thiepval is buried, not only the i prul1 of the 189th, but almost the regi- mciit. itself.—( Tmidb" correspondent. • "1'
TWO PICTURES German Despair & French Joy. The letters and extracts from diaries found on the German dead and prisoners are eloquent testimony to the severity of the ordeal which the Huns are facing on the Somme (writes Mr. E. Ashmead- Bartlett, with the French Armies). It is a fitting revenge for what the French Army and our own troops had bo endure during the autumn of 1914, when the enemy had brought up his heavy guns, to which we could make no reply, and was endeavouring to smash his wa.v through to Calais. Some of the extracts are highly in- teresting. All I have read ire in the same vein of absolute depression. In every letter references are made to the terrible nature of the artillery fire which the infantry have to face; to the in- feriority of their own artillery and there are whole pas.sagas devoted to abuse of their aviators. The latter are called "u8els," "coward8," and even stronger, unprintable epithets are applied to them. The enterprise of the French and Eng- lish airmen fill the simple German, sol- diers with wonder and admiration. They cannot understand how it is that Ger- many has so completely lost the com- mand of the air. They say it is impos- sible to move in the trenches and in the woods, because tke French airmen hover over the positions at a height of only 600 feet, and signal back the slight- est movement to the heavy guns, whick immediately proceed to raiai shalls on the trenches and dug-outs. NO FRBttCH DESPAIR. I Now let us lack at the otheF fcide ol the ptottttM (continues Mr. Yartlett). France hu suffered grievously in this war. Her aaoiiaced have exceeded any she has aver been called upon to make iii h)eT history. Her losses have been very great, and tka material damage she has suffered in t hose territories occupied by the eii,eTRy, and over which battlea have fought, is &hnkst -incalcitl&Na. But there is no cry of despair either from her people or from her army. The men are fighting as well to-day as y have ever fought during the tast two veam I was talking to the eomiaaadant of a battalion which took Maurepa* after a despenvte struggle.
