The army of General Von Kluk is also

The extreme left wing of the French
army, which is officially known as the
Fifth army, has now advanced to a
point slightly northeast of Amiens, thu
main body resting around that city. It
has been part of General Joffre's strat
egy to keep this army moving eastward
and northward as rapidly as possible to
keep hitting at the northwestern ex
tremity of the German line.
From the Information received by the
Trench General Staff, it Is evident that
the Germans hao either fallen back
into trenthes which had been used pre
viously north of the Alsne or elso had
Ik on able to preparo defensive works
Horn which to face the allies.
British troops are reported to havo
u-ossed the Alsne near the junction of
that river and the Oise, where their
passage was not opposed by German ar
tillery. This gives the allies a big ad
vantage, for it makes It unnecessary for
nt least a part of their troops to cross
the stream farther to the east, where
they would have to face the German
The rapid pursuit of the Germans has
worked Its effect upon the soldiers of the
allied army. The advance guard aro nhuad
of their heavy guns and the rapidity of
their movements has extended their lines.
It Is belteted that the French and British
soldiers who have been rushing forward
In pursuit of the Germans will need to re
cover their breath and replenish their
ammunition before they can strike a de
cisive blow. On tho other hand, the Ger
mans are nearer to their supply depots
and the retirement of the right llank
brought it Into touch with reinforcements
which hud been hurrylnir forward.
Even If the allies should be checked
and the Germans should launch a general
offensive movement the Invaders would
be handicapped hy the worn-out condition
of their right wing. The troops of Gen
eral Von Kluk have been marching and
iinting every uay ror nearly six weeks
and they are hardly in any condition to

forced to march under such conditions
that the soles are gone from their boots

If tho Crown Prince's iirmv should be
ible to stand Arm and the Germans would
ittempt a forwnrd movement Von Kluk's
men would be in the position of outside
-tinning, such as that at the bend of a
rtce track and they are so tired that
'ey probably would not be able to get
hert In time About the only recourse
ndcr such circumstances would be for
'rie Germans to masa freth troops on thtlr
'lht and give the worn veteran a
'hance for less arduous work.
Being forced back from their present
position, the next line upon which the
German could make a stand Is that run
