THE ALLIES' STRATEGY.
Pakis, October 28
There are three main canals be tween Nieuport and Dixmunde. The Germans crossed the second channel on Sunday and reached Peroyse on Monday, when the battle was critical for the Allies. The French, however, steadily advanced along the sand dunes to Loombartzyde and Westende.
A Flushing telegram states that a large force "Of Germans on Sunday advanced from Bruges to Thourout. Tbe Allies remained concealed until the town was occupied, and then, with a sudden attack, drove the Germans into confusion back to Bruges, leaving hundreds of dead and wounded be hind them.
The British and French flags are now flying from the tower of a Thour out church.
There was heavy fighting on Monday at Couckelaere where the Allies held a commanding position to the westwaad, and inflicted terrible losses. Thrice the German masses were flung in unavailing assaults upon the posi tion. German guns have been mounted at Heyst and Zeebrugge for tbe purpose of meeting attacks from , the sea, They have also sown mines along the coast, using Ostend tugs and luggers, but many of these mines broke away ; and exploded against Groynes on the seashore.
A SIGNAL BRITISH VICTORY,
Paris, October 28
After the Germans were repulsed at Ypres canal on Friday, the British ad vanced through the, open fields, driving the enemy ea?fc and north, and capturing Langsmarck, where they entrenched. During the night a shrill whistle suddenly sounded, bushes soaked with petroleum burst into flames, and masses of men sprang from the sugar beet crops a few hun dred yards io advance. The British hurriedly manned the trenches, opened fire with machine guns, and poured volley after volley into the Germans, who replied with cries of "Hoch.' Hoch !" and rushed on. They fell in hundreds, but were within thirty yards of the British trenches when a whistle sonnded the "retreat." The British sprang out of the trenches with their bayonets fixed, and there were band to band encounters in the dim glare of the burning bushes. Many of the eneir/y threw down their arms, but no quarter was given. The Germans were driven buck to Boulers, and the British took thousands of prisoner, including a general, and captured a buttery and several machine guns.
