FRENCH SHELL LILLE,
BUT WITHOUT RESULT.
Paris, Oct. 22—Furious counter
attacks by the allies toward Cour
trai, in an attempt to cut off the
German forces operating near
Nieuport, Dixmude and Ypres, are
reported from the north. High
praise is given to the valor of the
Belgian forces under King Albert
that are fighting along the Y r ser
The fighting is going on night
and day with attacks being made
by land, sea and air. Thus this
mighty conflict, which began on
September 12. as the battle of the
Aisne, has taken on an aspect and
a magnitude hitherto unknown in
Villages Are in Ruins.
More than 50 towns and villages
have been wiped out entirely or
ruined by the fighting, particular
ly by the artillery fire. Artillery
duels have been a stirring feature
of the hostilities in the extreme
north. In these long range fights
with heavy guns many uon-com
batauts have been killed.
There is a confident feeling in
French military circles that the
English channel expedition of the
Germans has failed and that from
now on they must act upon the de
It would not come as a surprise
to the French and British if the
whole northern front of the Ger
man army suddenly retired to a
new fortified position which al
ready has been prepared.
It is officially claimed by the war
office that the advantage has been
with the allies during the past 60
hours of fighting. However, the
hostilities on the Belgian border
are not yet definitely decided.
FOREIGN POETS WILL BE
BOYCOTTED IN GERMANY
D'Annunzio and Maeterlinck Are
Among Those on List.
London. Oct. 22—The Berlin
• I Vcrr.ucrts' r * announces that* a
boycott is to be placed on foreign
poets. Among the first that will
be boycotted are Gabriel d'Annun
zio and Maurice Maeterlinck. The
Germans, it is said, have conclud
ed that neither the Italian nor Bel
gian poet is a man of any particu
lar genius, and that boycotting
their works will be no great loss
to German readers.
Both these writers, since the
war began, have showed marked
hostility to the Germans, and num

that their readers banish d'An
