ALLIES ATTEMPT FLANK
MOVEMENT IN BELGIUM
LONDON, Oct. 21.
The Allies are attempting a turning
movement In France and Belgium. This
much Is admitted In military headquar
ters. The bollef Is current that the aim
Is to roll back the German right from
the vicinity of Nlouport and Ostend.
Jt Is freely admitted that the fleet Is
In action and that the naval brigade Is
co-operating with the Belgians. The In
ference, therefore, Is that the German
extreme right has been found weaker
than was antlcipatd and that the Allies
nre taking advantage of this fact before
addltlonl reinforcements can be brought
At the War OITIco It 1 stated there Is
'no reason to doubt that the Alllei nre
on the offensive." But that Is as far
as the cautious officials care to go. They
say that It Is too early to forecast what
Is to be expected, but the Inference Is
that the Germans have ovcrplaypd their
Ofllclals who are usually well Informed
declare that when the actual conditions
nre disclosed It will be found that the
presence of the German artillery In their
cNtieme right means that a covering
movement Is In progress. There Is be
lieved hero to be plenty of evidence that
the Germans have withdrawn at least a
portion of their Infantry fro mthe Nieu-port-Dlxmude-Boulers
line. This has
been found -necessary to hold the posi
tions near Lille, where tho Allies have
1eon fighting with desperation to extend
their lines eastward.
Both sides, for tho first time since the
war began, now have the benellt of ex
cellent street car lines as well as railroads
on which to move transport and war ma
terials. The Germans hae one. modern

directly to their battle front, and another,

have equally good lines In their rear ex
tending eastward from Dunkirk. Dun
kirk, Bergues to tho south, and Grave
lines and Bourburg to the southwest, form
a group of fortresses in lowlands which
nre commanded by numerous canals,
ditches and Hats.
To the east of Dunkirk there Is a series
of forts which defend ncalnst an approach

these, is Ave miles from the Inner Dun

In Belgium, along the Ysor River, near
Dlxmude and Vpres, the Allies, assisted
by the Belgian troops under King Albert,
have been able to hold the Germans In

The town of t!oleres, between Albert

Another Times correspondent, tele

that the Germans have provided trouble
for themxelves by occupying open towns
and that their plans have been upset
by tho offensive of the Allies.
"The occupation of Ostend had little

German, while Calais Is well able to

"The i.ghtlng lino dally has under

only fair to say, however, that so far
as I have been nble to gather, the Ger

that they recently visited."
A dispatch to the Dally Telegraph says
that the British squadron off tho coast

of Mlddlekorko, between N'leuport and

COOKING OF JULES!
AH, M'SIEUR, 'TIS FIT
FOR THE GENERALS
Soldier-chef's Mess Has Lu
cullan Fare as He Trans
lates Potatoes Into
BY WILLIAM O, SHEPHERD
ON TltE BATTLEFIELD OF SOIS-
SONS, Oct. 21.
Having nccldentnlly stumbled onto the
front, and being held here, It would be
possible for me to wrlto reams about
shooting and killing If tho officers would
lot me. I urn not permitted to leave the
town or oven to mention Its name In
anything I write, because I cannot prove
that what Information I have will not
get to the Germans.
But I can write about Jules' cooking.
It would do the Germans good to know
nhout It, nnd besides, any man who says
that cooking nnd eating are not as im
portant In warfare as shooting and kill
ing doesn't know what warfare Is.
You step from n country road through
n wicket gate, which opens on a pear
orchnrd, and you'to In Jules' kitchen.
The kitchen ho presides over In Paris is
sacred ground and you could not enter
It for love, nor even for a lot of money,
for Jules Is chef of one of tho greatest
and finest restaurants In the world.
The mobilization call In France pulled
him down from his high pedestal and
hrought him to this pear orchard to
cool: for 13 officers.
Jules wears his uniform,' a blue coat
and red trousers but Iip doesn't wear
the FOldlcr'R cap. Who ever heard of a
man cooking In anything but a chot's
hat? I don't bploe tho entire French
War Iiepnrtment could get Jules to try
such an unheard of thing.
The pear trees about his flreplnce ere
t'cry old and very small, nnd thoy have
been trained by generations of nursery
man to grow in grotesmio patterns, like
vines, on quecrly shaped frames, liach
pair is covered with a paper bag which
wns tied over the bud by the old gard
ener In the French fashion.
"Ah, for such fruit as that In Tarls,"
Jules, as I stood by his big copper kettles
one afternoon. "Not a bit of dust, not
even a raindrop has ever touched tho
skins of those pears. Only tho sunshine
has penetrated the little whlto paper
Ho shrugged his shouldota with pleasure
at the thought. Tho orchnrd looks queer
enough with the twisted trees growing
paper sacks of fruit. The Germans lived
in mis orchard tor 11 days. Thoy may
have sacked Louvnln, but tho splendor
of this orchnid seems to have over
whelmed them. Now Jules and his French
soldier friends nre showing how well they
can let dollnr-a-ploce pears nlnne. Maybe
the fruit will find Its way, after all, to
tht restaurants of Paris, London and
Jules' pots nre under a grape orchard.
Huge clusters of malngas hang down
wo say pommo fiult. This is the best
ftom his morning coffee settles on them
In thick moisture, which, for some odd
reason, seems to make the coffoo all the
mme wonderful. James H. Hare, the vet-t-rnn
war photographer, who stumbled
onto the front with me, nnd had his
camera and films taken from him, was
discovered the other day standing nt tho
wicket almost sobbing because he could
not set a photograph of Jules In his
Sinpe n:bor-peur orchard kitchen. Jules'
kitchen Is good to see but it I bettor to
smell. Today hi- and three soldiers spent
the forenoon In working away with
knives at a bushel of ugly, dlity little
potatoes which hnd been dug from a
garden nearby. About five this evening
I walked ovvr to where Jules was tolling
with a ladle at two liu;u copper pots. In
one pot was a rjmintlty of sizzling hot
lard: ttoalint; then in wvre slices of po
tatoes which swelled, under ill sight, Into
puily, round, crisp balls. In the other pot
was ut hast a bushel St these potato bits,
irlsp nnd hot, which Juti-s was ladling
from tho grease. From time to time he
put raw potatoes into his cooking pot.
"PoMtots snute " I nsked him.
"So you call them In English. In Paris
we say pnmne fruit. This Is the hest
way to cook potatoes."
He toie a leaf fiom the roof of the
kitchen, put a handful of the potatoes on
it and gave me the lot.
"Could 1 do anv better than that In
Paris?" he nsk'd me l stinted to sny
"no," but he gave himself tho pnme
answer befnie I did.
By dinner time Jules had cooked enough
steals I don't know how, only It was
very good In the same grease In which
the potatoes had been fried, and, hy the
time wo got through with tho potatoes
and the stvak, Jutes brought out a gi
gantic talad of fresh lettuce, with the
vinegar and salad touched up. In ft daring
nnd artistic fashion, with a bit of garlic.
When thut w-as done his soldier waiters
served cheese, And then came coffee,
which had nent Its steam up to the cold,
fiexh BiupfS. Most of the time Jules,
In his blue coat his red trousers, his
(pldler shoes and his chef's cap, stood
looking on as if daring even the highest
otlice- there who happened to be part
general to say that something was tho
matter with the nienl.
In truth, the onlj thine tho matter with
it was that wo all ato too much. I made
tnix complaint to Jules, mid he said: "It
is music to my ears, the wall of a man
with an overfull stomach."
AH tli a time, remember, the cannon
wore boomlnjf and, not far away, men
are killing and dying1.
"Ilav anv of our mess been killed?"
I usKt-fT Jules.
"Fifteen out of ..,' he said, "hut I
know thev all fousht well because they
all ate well. '
