SITUATION CRITICAL.

London, October 18. An extract from .the pocket book found on a dead German soldier early in October says — "At Dommery the French opened a hellish fire and oreated a panic. Everybody gave orders, and nobody thought to tell us to lie down. It was a shocking mess, and we were, shot at by friend and foe. The burning of Rethel was dreadful vandalism, and a disgrace to the German army. The damage ran into millions of marks, Our losses at Zautaurre were enormous. The 178 th Regiment alone lost 1700 wounded besides the killed, and was made practically officerless. Everybody thinks the situation is critical. We advanced too quickly, The French beat us in using cover. This country will be our grave." BRITISH RECRUITING.
