'* JaSl 'Murphy returned from a trip
to   Ironwoodjc/Mich.,-' on _ Monday.
Mr.' Murphy  says  he heard  more
war talk to the square inch on his
travels through the states than',is to
be heard to the mile on this side of
thelitis.   This is accounted for by
the fact that each side, engaged in
the'controversy has its supporters
arguments pro and con are to be
heard at every street corner and
bulletin board.
The largest number of ranchers
gathered in Enderby last Saturday
that has been noticed on the streets
for.many weeks���������and they were a
"feeling fine" crowd. They came
in to take advantage of the sale at
present being held by the Murrin
Hardware Co.''and Messrs. Poison,
Murrin & Speers. This sale is doing
much to dispel thc idea that 'the
times are hard," or that "money is
tight." The store building of this
enterprising firm is crowded every
evening on which a sale is held, and
at thc Saturday afternoon and evening sales, the place is packed.
Who savs there isn't anything in
a name. Gus Glad was employed in
driving a truck load of lumber from
the planer in the lumber yard on
Monday, and, in crossing the railway track was run down by the
freight train then backing in its
switching. Fortunately the train
crew saw him and the train was
stopped in a very few feet, but not
in time to save Gus from being
caught under the car. He was extricated with difficulty, being bent
almost double between the truck
and car wheels. No bones were
broken, but his body tis covered
with serious bruises.
All the. best parchment for butter

greater'seriousness, it is said to-be-
doubtful if the Canadian paper
houses will be able to get any more

A meeting of delegates, from the
various Conservative ^Associations
in the Valley ,'was held; at-Vernon
last Thursday for the -purpose of
adopting some definite plan in connection with the proposed redistribution of4,seats in the Okanagan.
F. H. Barnes and H. M.'Walker represented the Enderby*Association,
and presented the report of the gen-
e r aL m ee tin g-hcld .in _Enderby_some
few weeks ago as the .decision of
the people as to what is felt is require^ here. The general lines of
the report were adopted at the Vernon meeting, and thc decision was
unanimous lhat,. lo meet the requirements of the Valley three
members should be asked for, thc
riding cut up inlo three distinct
parts. No definite lines were laid
down covering the southern portion, it being the opinion.that this
could be better done after certain
data was gathered covering the
requirements demanded by' the redistribution commission.

SEPTEMBER 17, 1914  CANADIAN JAM FACTORIES BUSY  Thc embargo on thc importatioriof jam from  the United Kingdom, as thc result.of the war in  Europe, will increase the demand for Canadian-  made jams, and, indirectly if not directly, should  bring to lhc fruit industry of the. Okanagan a  demand that has not heretofore.Been felt. It is  announced that during the fiscal year, ending  March 31, 1914, over $500,000 worth of jams, jellies and preserves were imported frOm the United  Kingdom into Canada. The deficiency created  by lhc shuttingoff of these imports under thc embargo institute! by thc British Government must  be made up by thc Canadian jam, factories.  As a result of these conditions there is greatly  increased activity in the jam factories throughout  Canada, and there is now an opening for thc  fruit men oi' thc Okanagan, particularly lhc canning factories, lo capture a big line of business  that should be held here. There is no reason for  lhe loss of a single pound of fruit grown in thc  Okanagan. It is simply a question of getting tlie  fruit on thc market���������������������������nol raw from the tree entirely, but canned and jammed. Much loss will  ^ahvays^be-cxpericnccd-in-fruit^growing-until-we  have"thc jam factories and thc canning factories  to take care of the over-ripes and tlie super-crop.  In Ontario, the fruit growers long ago recognized this, and.lt was not until they established  lhc extensive siring of canning and jam factories  owned by the Dominion Canncr's Limited, that  they began to gel full returns from '.heir fruit.  Indeed, up lo the lime of .establishing these factories, lhe waste and loss-to thc fruit men of Ontario more than offset thc advantages of fruit  growing, and lhc industry languished. Now it is  quite different. The Dominion Canners Limited  is lhis year operating its jam factory al Hamilton  al maximumu capacity, night as well as day shifts  being employed. L. D. Smith & Sons, Lid., another company operating a jam factory at Winona, Old., has increased its staff and will have a  record output this season. In thc plan I of Lind-  nrs, Limited, al Toronto, still another I'ruil canning factory to take care of' lhc Ontario surplus  fruit crop, where, under ordinary conditions,  about 45 hands-arc employed, il is expected lhat  nigh I and day shifts will be employe! for lhc next  six or seven months. These conditions arc typical  of those lhal obtain throughout lhe entire fruit  industry in the Eastern Province, ancl is what  should obtain in lhe Okanagan.  ENEMY ON THE RUN  Judging from the latest reports from the front  this week, the fall of lhc dual empire, Austria-  Hungary, is imminent, and the failure of the German-Austrian military campaign is complete.  Il is reported thai Austria is anxious to sue for,  peace, and Ambassador Page, representing Great  13ritain al Washington, has given President Wilson to understand that Britain and her allies will  nol listen to any terms looking to peace until the  Prussian militarv spirit predominating Germany  has been completely destroyed, root and branch.  This .would indicate that the German Emperor  has put out a "feeler" in an /effort to find some  way out of the present embarrassing position the  Prussian spirit has brought the German nation  into. Following this announcement of the British Ambassador at Washington, and following,  too, the humiliating retreat that lhe Allies have  forced the Germany army to take in its effort-to  ���������������������������get out of France and back upon German soil, the  announcement is made that the -German/ Emperor has given orders to the German navy to immediately take the offensive against the British  fleet. Perhaps in this thc kaiser believes his ships  might be able lo retrieve the prestige his army  has lost on land. It is more probable, however,  thai thc kaiser knows his navy will be defeated,  and his ships cilhcr sunk or captured by thc combined fleets of the Allies, and that lhc sooner this  is done lhc sooner may he hope to be able to approach the Allies with peace terms. He knows  that so long as there is a vistagc of the Germany  navy left lo oppose the Allies, all peace, terms will  be unavailing. He knots'his navy can not hope  to win against the combination working against  him. Therefore, thc sooner he can force a collision, destroy as many of the enemy as he can,  before his own ships are sunk or captured, ancl  surrender fighting, the better will he serve his  empire and "honorably" save thc slaughter of his  people. Even the kaiser has some heart, though  his military mania and that of his Prussian military stall' seems to have buried it deep under almost a fiendish desire for power and pelf. He is  sane enough lo see how-the great military plans  of his chief of military staff have miscarried, and  he must foresee, with the utter failure of his Austrian ally to hold up its end of thc fighting  against the Russians, that thc cause of Prussian  militaryism has gone glimmering. He knows  it is already lost; the handwriting on the wall is  unmistakable. That he must do something lo  stem the. tide, or "make an effort to, is clear. If  the navy could give any kind of an account of  itslf before going down, it would, in a measure,  save his face. And with this arm of thc Prussian  spirit broken, the nations and. empires opposing  him would be easier to approach with peace proposals. .  It should not be understood that because the  answer of Britain, through Ambassador Page,  was so firm in showing Britain's determination to  completely crush the Prussian military spirit of  Europe 'before she would listen to talk of peace  from Germany, that Britain has any desire or any  intention to ruthlessly slaughter' the manhood of  thc German people. But England knows.that in  the settlement of Europe this time, there must be  no branch of Prussianism left to begin anew its  fight for power. In the destruction of Prussianism it docs not follow that there must be thc annihilation of thc German manhood, or even thc  partitioning up of thc German empire. , It will be  to the interest of all Europe', for the balancing of  power, to keep thc German empire where it is,  and lo keep it subdued in a military sense. The  world owes much to the literaturc,music, science,  research and art of thc German people, and  Britain is thc first to recognize this and to give  credit.. It is.not this spirit that Britain says must  be broken. To this spirit, in her commerce, art,  finances, and general development, Germany  owes all. that has made her great. And Britain  would be the last to want to break, or even check  her advancement along these lines.  But, for Britain's own life and thc life of her  colonics, as well as for the permanent peace of  Europe, thc predominating Prussian spirit of thc  German empire must come down.

IMPROVED INDUSTRIAL CONDITIONS  Already there is a marked improvement in  various lines of industry in Canada as the result  of the war. The stimulating ''effect of present  conditions upon thc Canadian cotton industry has  resulted in the resumption of full working time  in the ten mills of lhc Dominion'Textile Co., Ltd.  During lhc eight months prior to the commencement of the war lhc 7,000 employees of this company were working on an average only 70 per  cent, of full time. Since thc outbreak of hostilities they have been working full time and if thc  present demand for Canadian cotton continues,  as is likely to be thc case, overtime and double  shifts in certain departments wilf be necessary.  The operation at full" capacity] of the .'ten mills  of the Dominion Textile Co., Ltd., will mean the  placing in circulation of upwards of $10,000,000.  Most of this large amount of money will be spent  in Canada���������������������������in wages, in freight and cartage, in  coal, oil and other factory supplies and in the  many other items that enter into the cost of the  finished product. As lhc ten. mills of the company are sea tiered from Kingston to Halifax the  benefits accruing from the circulation-of this  large amount of money will be spread over.a wide  area.  to  When in doubt don't cook.

Septemb3r 17,  1914  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Brief Dispatches Showing the  Trend of the War and Its Future  London. Sept. 15.-"The  Motherland can never forget,''  says the Times, ' 'the earnest  patriotism of Canada, and the  proud rush of her sons to the  Empire's standard, her vast gifts  oi food, and her more touching  and priceless gifts of men.  "Britain longs to welcome the  Canadian troops when they reach  these shores, and since their enlistment is known to all, we trust  the opportunity will not be denied her at the proper time."  The Times promises the men  r'ich a reception as will echo  throughout the Dominion.  Speaking at a meeting in London, the past week, Mr. Winston  Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty,- said: :>  "It is too soon to speculate up"-  on the result of the great battle  which is now being waged T in  France, but everythingV������������������ have  heard during four long days of  anxiety seems to point to a marked and substantial turning of the  tide."  Proceeding, he said: "The  number of battleships which  will be completed within the next  12 months is more than double  the number that will be completed for Germany, and the number of cruisers will be three or  four times as great. Therefore  we may count upon the naval  supremacy of the country being  effectively maintained. What  we now have to do is to raise a  great army, strong enough to  enable the country to take its  proper share in the decision of  this terrible struggle. To make  the assistance of the Empire effective, we should put on the  continent and keep there an army  of at least one million men. That  figure is well within the compass  of arrangements which Lord  Kitchener has taken."  London, Sept. 14.���������������������������Premier  Asquith told the House of Commons today that no official information had reached the ministry  of war concerning the repeated  stories that German soldiers had  abused the Red Cross flag, killed  and mained the wounded and  killed women and children.  Washington, Sept. 15.���������������������������Emperor William has. had under consideration for several days, it  was learned tonight, an informal  inquiry from the. United States  Government as to whether Germany desires to discuss terms of  peace with her foes. At a late  hour no reply had come, but oh  its tenor depends, to some extent  whether or not the informal  peace movement inaugurated  just a week ago tonight can De  pursued further with Great Britain, France and Russia.  The inquiry was not a formal  one, such as President Wilson's  original tender of good offices,  but was an effort of an unofficial  character to determine whether  Germany's reported willingness  to talk peace was based on facts.  The London correspondent of  the New York herald cables:  I am informed that before  many hours the Germans, stung  by their unexpected defeats on  land, will, under direct orders  from the Kaiser, make a desperate effort to win the mastery of  the sea. ;  "I can tell you every British  sailor, from Admiral Sir John  Jellicoe down, Js filled with the  lust of battle, -and waiting for  the fateful hour."  Paris, Sept., 15.���������������������������The military  critics, especially the critic of  the Journal des Debats, although  appreciating fully the German  reverse all along the line from  Paris to Verdun, and applauding  the splendid feat of arms of the  French and British troops, calls  upon the public against a too  rapid assumption that the invaders are beating a disorderly  retreat. ;K.  - It is pointed out that a  great  army such   as   the   Germans  pushed into France still possesses  considerable power of resistance,  even after such a reverse, and  that owing to its enormous numbers, it may assume a counter  offensive at any moment.  Discussing the rumors of a  general shortage of ammunition,  authoritative circles admit that  lack of ammunition may have occurred in some parts of the  fighting line, but decline to believe that a fighting machine  such as the German army, with  an open country at its back while  advancing, could be allowed to  run short as a whole.  KARLUK'S SURVIVORS  THANKSGIVING DAY OCT. 8th  Thursday, October 8, has been  chosen by the Government as the  date of Thanksgiving Day. . The  proclamation will appear ' in the  Canadian Gazette on Saturday.  For some years past it has been  the custom to fix Thanksgiving  Day on a Monday, and later in  this month. This year it has  been decided to revert to the old  practice of having Thanksgiving  Day fall on Thursday.  Nome, Alaska, Sept. 15.���������������������������The  United States revenue cutter  Bear arrived here today with  eleven survivors of the crew of  the Steffansson exploring ship  Karluk, who were rescued from  Wrangell Island by the gasoline  steamer King and Wing, and  transferred to the Bear.

Graham Rosoman. a27-2t  EMERGENCY LEGISLATION  Tlie Dominion Government,  through the emergency legislation  passed last session, has been able to  make arrangements to assist lhc  Canadian Provinces, cities and  municipalities whose finances have  been dislocated by the war. This  assistance will permit necessary  public works to continue, and  should be of Ihe greatest value in  helping Ihe unemployment problem this winter.  The legislation adopted at the  last session authorizes advances in  Dominion notes to banks upon approved securities. Advances will  be permilted to banks on securities  of Provinces, cities and municipalities whose treasury bills afloat in  London will mature in thc next few  months.  The bankers for any such corporation will deposit these securities, in regard to the value of  which there can be no doubt, and  thus secure advances from the Government. These treasury bills or  short-date obligations had been issued with  the  expectation on  the  part of the Provincial or municipal  authorities concerned that .they  would issue permanent securities in  due course and from their proceeds  retire the treasury bills as they maimed. The procedure they adopted  in issuing their bills and that which  they intend to pursue in retiring  them was u usual and ordinary  method of public financing .  Some of the public bodies in  question lftul made their issues before the outbreak of the war; others  intended to go upon the market this  Fall. In the former case the proceeds of the loans have not been  available, in their entirety at least,  by reason of the British moratorium  which has postponed the obligation  of the underwriters and subscribers  But for the latter it is not possible at  the present time to make the permanent issues to which they looked  forward, as the London market is  closed for the present to new issues of even the highest class of  securities.  The aggregate of these outstanding treasury bills probably exceeds  thirty million dollars.    A part of  this indebtedness will undoubtedly  bei inet from" the- proccwls dfnper-  manent securities, as the moratorium is not being taken "advantage  of by all underwriters. In certain  other cases the maturing bills' will  be renewed upon terms of reduction in amount by part payment.  The balance will be taken care of  by the bankers of ihe Provinces and  municipalities interested.        -,      ;  SHORT AND DECISIVE  The war in Europe will be short  and decisive is the opinion of the  New York Army and Navy Journal,  which says editorially: .'More ���������������������������men  may be killed in battle, but the percentage of the casualties^ will  scarcely be larger than in former,  years. Owing to improved methods  of sanitation and in training soldiers, the number of deaths from  disease will be reduced to a minimum. The development of modern  implements of warfare will shorten  the time of the war and reduce the  amount of suffering and financial  loss. Within a year Europe will be  in peace again, and in a few years  will have recovered almost entirely  from the effects of the war. It will  not be so terrible that in another  crisis like this nations will refuse  to go to war.  LAND REGISTRY ACT  Re. Part Lot "A", Lot 150, Group 1,  Osoyoos Division of Yale District.

Sir John French Tells How Well  'British Soldiers Acquitted themselves  The reverses suffered by the  British arms in the South African war were thc most fortunate that ever came to Britain.  But for those reverses, and thc  lessons, they taught, Britain  would not today have such men  at the head of her army as Lord  Kitchener, Sir John French, and  the other generals under him.  It was Sir John French who  ^ycnt wilh the British expedition  to thc Nile. He was present at  Abu Klca, Gubut, and Mctam-  mah.,. It was Sir John French  who, in 1899,] joined the forces  of Sir George White, in Natal,  and was .placed in command by  Lord Roberts of the famous  British cavalry mobolizcd at  Mocldcr River. It was he -who  joirieoV' the chase of Cronje,  whom he finally forced k in the  death trap at Paardebcrg, and  at the.battle of Diamond Hill, it  was Sir John French's forces  that had to bear thc whole brunt  of the Boer counter attack.  In all these conflicts Sir John  French proved ihimself a man  of steel and resourcefulness,  and to him Lord Kitchener gave  over* the command of the expeditionary forces sent by'Britain  to beat back the Prussian invasion of Belgium and France. ~  .Sir. John French has.made his  first report from the front, and  ho Britisher can read that report without thanking his stars  tliat it was" Sir John French in  command.of that expeditionary  force. He shows, how-closely  the-Germans had ..the British  forces cut off, and all but surrounded, in which case it would  have meant surrender or annihilation. In. his report] Sir Joljn  French says; .'_. _~-.,,..  "On Sunday, the 23rd August," reports began to ��������������������������� come in rthat the  enemy was commencing an attack  ,bn- the Mons.Jine apparently' in  some strength; but that the right of  of both the first and the second ydi-  visions, while thc first division .took  up ii supporting position in the  neighborhood of Peisant.  "Under cover of this demonstration the second corps retired on  thc line - of Dour, Quaroublc and  Framciics. The third division on  the right of thc corps suffered considerable loss in . this operation  from the enemy who had retaken  Mons. '   -..,'  "Thc second corps halted on this  line where they entrenched themselves, enabling Sir Douglas Haigh,  with the first corps, to withdraw  to the new position, nnd he effected  this without much further loss  reaching the line from Bavay to  Maubeuge in the,evening.  "Toward midnight the enemy appeared to be directing his principal  efforts against our left. I had previously ordered General Allenby,  with his cavalry, to act vigorously  on my left front ancl endeavor to  take the pressure] off.  "Ih trie morning General Allenby  received a message from Sir  Charles Fergusson, commanding  the fifth division, saying he was  hard pressed and in urgent need of  support. On receipt of this message General Allenby drew in his  cavalry and endeavored to bring  direct support to thc fifth division.  "During the course of this operation General Delisle of the second  cavalry .brigade, thought he saw a  good qpportnuity to paralyze thc  further advance of the enemy's infantry by making a mounted attack  on his flank. He formed up and  advanced for this purpose, but was  held up by wire about 500 yards  from his*,objective and the Ninth  Lancers and Eighth'Hussars suffered severelyyin the retirement of  the] brigade. ,-], ^ri/_-L .--t-r7-'S-'.[ ._- --.,  ',*, "The] Ninth Jnfantry '7Briga.de,  guarding the line" of communication  was brought by rail to] Valenciennes on the 22nd_juid"..23]rd.' .On  south of Solesmes, his left resting  on the Cambrai-Lecateau road],  south of La Chapris.

He  also informed me that the two reserve French divisions and the fifth  French army corps on my right  were retiring, thc Germans having  ������������������Djl?e_.R.re-viPlLs jbiy gained possession of lhe passage of thc Sambre  between Charlcroi and Namur.  "In view of the possibility of my  being driven from the Mons position, I had previously ordered a  position in the rear to be reconnoitred. This position rested on the  fortress of Maubeuge on the right  and extended west to Jcnlain,  southeast of Valenciennes, on the  left. The position was reported  difficult to hold because standing  crops and buildings made the site  of trenches difficult and limited thc  fire in many important localities.  It nevertheless afforded a few good  artillery positions.  "When news of the retirement of  'the. French and the heavy German  threatening - on ray front reached  me "I endeavored to confirm it by  aeroplane reconnaissance, and as a  result of this I determined to effect  a retirement of the Maubeuge position at daybreak on the 24th.  "A certain amount of fighting  continued along the whole line  throughout the night and at, day-,  break on'the 24th the second division from the neighborhood of  Hairhiignids' made a powerful demonstration as if to retake Binche.  This was supported by the artillery  was afforded by the fortress of  Maubeuge, and determined efforts  of the enemy to get round my flank  assured me lhat it was his intention to hem me against that place  and surround me.  "I felt that nol a moment must be  lost in retiring lo another position.  I had every reason to believe that  thc enemy's forces were somewhat  exhausted, and I knew that ��������������������������� they  had suffered heavy losses. I hoped,  therefore, that his pursuit would  nol be too vigorous to prevent me  effecting my object. This operation, however, was.full of danger  and difficulty, nol only owing lo the  very superior forces in my section,  but also to the exhaustion of the  troops.  "The' retirement was, recommenced in the early morning of the  25th, to a position in the neighborhood of Lec.atcau, and the rear  guard was ordered to be cleared of  Maubeauge and Davay by 5.30' a.  m. Two cavalry brigades, with the  divisional . cavalry of the second  corps, and the remainder of the  cavalry division with the 19th brigade, the whole under command of  General Allenby, covered the west  flank.  "The fourth division commenced  its detrainment at Lccatcau on the  23rd, and by the, morning of the  25th eleven batalions arid a brigade  of artillery with the divisional staff  were available for service.

Sir John French Tells How Well  British Soldiers Acquitted Themselves  [Continued from pagre 5]  Shorthand  I am prepared to leach small class  in evenings, or will take individual  pupils.   For terms apply���������������������������  hausted condition of the troops, I  determined to make a great effort to  continue the retreat till I could put  some substantial obstacle, such as  the Somme or lhe Oishc, between  my troops and thc enemy and afford the former some opportunity  for rest and reorganization.  "Orders  were   therefore  sent   to  the corps commander lo continue  retreat  as  soon   as   they   possibly  could   toward   lhe  general   line  of  Verm and,   St.   Qucntin   and   Ribe-  mont, and the cavalry under General Allenby were ordered-to cover  the   retirement.     Throughout   the  25th and far inlo lhe evening, the  first corps continued the march on  Landrecics,    following    the    road  along   the   eastern   border   of   the  forest of Mortnal,  and  arrived  at  Landrecics about 10 o'clock.   I had  intended    lhat   the   corps   should  come.'further west so as to Till up  the   gap   between    Lecateau    and  Landrecics, but the men were exhausted and could nol gel further  in without a rest.  "Thc enemy would not, however,  allow this rest and that evening the  report was received that the 4th  Guards Brigade in Landrecics was  heavily attacked by troops of the  9th German corps, who were coming through the forest to thc north  of. the town. This brigade fought  most gallantly and caused the enemy to suffer a tremendous loss in  issuing from the forest to the north  of the town  "At thc same time, information  reached me from Sir Douglas Haigh  lhat his first division1 was also  heavily engaged south and east of  Marilles. I sent urgent messages to  the commander of two ''French reserve divisions on my right to come  up to the assistance of the first  corps, which Ihcy eventually did.  Partly owing to this assistance, but!  mainly to the skilful manner in  which Sir Douglas Haigh extricated!  north of Aveencs. On my way back  from Bavay, which was my poste  de commandemonte during the  fighting of the 23rd and 24lh, I visited General Sordcl and earnestly  requested his co-operation and support. He promised lo obtain sanction from his army commander to  acl on my left flank, bul said thai difficult  and   dangerous  operation.  mies. At length it became apparent that if complete annihilation  was to~b~e avoided retirement ipust  be attempted, and the order was  given to commence it about 3.30 in  thc afternoon. The movement 'was  covered wilh most devoted intrepidity and determination by the artillery, which had itself-'suffered  heavily, and thc fine work done by  the cavalry in the further retreat  from thc position, assisted materially thc final completion of the most  his horses were loo tired to move  before the next day.  "Although he rendered me valuable assistance later in the retirement, he was unable to afford me  any. support on the most critical  day of all, namely, the 2Gth.  "Al daybreak il became apparent  lhat the enemy was throwing the  bulk of his strength against the left  of the position occupied by the second corps and thc fourth division.  At this time he guns of four German army corps were in position  against therii and Sir Horace Smith-  Dorrien reported that he judged it  impossible to continue his retirement at daybreak, as ordered, in  face of such an attack.  "I sent him orders to use his utmost endeavors to break off the action and retire at the earliest pos-  Fortunalely thc enemy had herself  suffered too heavily to engage in  any energetic pursuit.  "I cannot close thc account of  this glorious stand of the British  troops without putting on record  my deep appreciation of thc valuable services rendered by Sir Horace Smith-Dorricn. I say without  hesitation that the saving of the  left wing of the army under my  command on the morning of the  2Gth could not have been accomplished unless a commander of  rare and unusual coolness, intrepidity and determination had been  present to personally conduct the-  operations.  "Thc retreat was continued, far.  into the night of thc 26th, and  through the 27th and 28th, on  which  date  thc  troops halted, on  ... ... . .,,    the line from Neion, Chauncv and  VlAlm������������������mC^���������������������������A���������������������������^P?���������������������������<l!l Lcfere, having then thrown off the  for me to send him support, thc 1st  corps being at the moment incapable of movement. The French  cavalry corps, under General Sor-  dct, was coming up on our left rear  early in the morning and 1 sent him  an urgent message lo do his utmost  to come up and support the.retirement of my left Hank, but owing to  thc fatigue of his horses he found  himself unable to intervene in any  way.  "There had been no time to entrench the position properly, but  the troops showed a magnificent  front to the terrible fire which confronted them. Thc artillery, although outmatched by at least four  to one, made a splendid light and  inflicted heavy losses on their enc-  wcight of the enemy's pursuit. .  "On thc 27th ancl. 28th I was  much indebted to Gen. Sordet and  the French cavalry division which  he commands for materially assisting my retirement and successfully  driving back some of the enemy on  Cambrai. Gen. D'Amadc also, with  the 61st and 62nd reserve divisions,  moved down .from the neighborhood "of Arras on the enemy's right  flank and took much pressure off  the rear of the British forces.
