THEY HOLD GOOD POSITIONS That Qlvci Them Still Better Opportunity to Die Gig duns on the Germans. (By Tho Associated Press.t Willi tho French Army In France, •Wednesday, Sept. 38.—General Man- Bin's army attacked along tho front northeast of Solssons today-and captured tho Colombes farm on tlio plateau Just cast of Sancy and just south of tho point whore the Chemin Des Dames branches oft from tho road leading from Solssons to Loon. .. A stroai; counter attack let by grenadiers of the Prussian guard was repulsed by tho French, who drove tho enemy back of the road leading from the plateau of Ango Burdleno to the Colombes form. This road Is less than a balf mile from the Chemin Des Dames. On "Ladles Way." This success puts the French hi possession of part of tho Important plateau of Ango Gardlone which commands the ridge along which runs tho famous "ladies way" for a considerable distance. It OIEO drives deeper the wedge south of the Hindeuburg positions in tho St. Oobaln region and facilitates operations In the direction of Pinon which. was held by tho French until the German offensive late in May. The fighting in this region has boeen most svero during the last few dayB. A glimpse- of tho section around Colorable farm, obtained from a point giving a view of the Chomln Des Dnmre and Fort ,Mal- moison as well aa the plateau lo the south on which tho farm is situated, gave an idea of the tremendous task General Mangiu's men have undertaken. The soldiers could bo seen bounding from shell hole to shell hole and from trench to trench. From Uie great distance between them and the observer the only means of distinguishing the fighting forces was that the French were advancing eastward - and northward upon tho moss of ruins that marks the location of the Colombes farm.

With the French army in Picardy, Wednesday, Sept. 18. —Tho troop's of the French army under Ueneral De- heney who pursued the Germans from tho region of Montdldler, haVe, after a few days of comparative inactivity, successfully resumed their attacks in the region of St. Quenlih in conjunct Uon with the British. In spite of tho long pursuit from the Avrc to the Somme, with almost" constant fighting slnco August 8, Genera' Debeueyjs men are pressing the enemy Willi tho samo vigor with- which they began the offensivo in Picardy. Two Miles of Quentln. The French have advanced close to Dalton, less than' two miles from the western outskirts of St. Quentln. Here Uicy am fighting tho Germans on the Hlndenburg line and every Inch of the ground Is being disputed stoutly by O10 enemy. Apparently the Germans are determined to hold tho plateau which lies lust west of SI. Quentln, south of Francllly, east of Savy and north of Dalton. General Dobeney's troops have been obliged to attack it piecemeal and to advanco by liltlc bounds, slipping between machine gun emiilace- ments here and there and sometimes making frontal attacks. Slow fftit Sure. Progress under those conditions necessarily is Blow, but the Allied lines are none the less sufely advancing toward the outskirts of St. Quentln from the south and west as well ns the north^ ******* • 4- <& ^ <!> <?• «• «• * * -FRENCH STATEMENT. <S> • «> Paris, Sept. 19.—French troops last night continued, their progress in the region of St. Quentln and penotrated, the German positions at Contcscourt, i throe miles southwest of St. Quentln. Along the Vesle where American and French troops are stationed, a German attack north east of Conrlan- don was broken up by the French artillery fire. In.. Lorraine. (Bv Th-i Associated Press.) With the American forces in Ijor- raino, Sept. 19.—Entrenched in the second lines of tho Hindeuburg system the Germans along the front southwest of Met?, appear to have accepted the new situation. Tho tactics they are employing are wholly defensive ones. The Germans are carrying out a half hearted and seemingly pcrfur.o tory bombardment of "the American lines. Even challenges by American and French patrols are re-fused by the enemy except where a conflict Is inevitable. x ] WALL STREET | Changes were unusually narrow at the opening of the stock market today with the trend definitely upward, soon crystallizing into a more positive show of strength among some of those stocks whldi were conspicuous during yesterday's advance. American Sumatra tobacco continued to reflect re- tiremet of an over-extended short account and both Mexican Petroleum and Texns Company achieved still higher levels. Speculation in steels, coppers, equipments and important railroads was on a limited scale, but Marino preferred was absorbed on reiteration of reports that the long liending deal for Uie transfer of the 'British tonnage would soon bo consummated; With the short interest reduced, the market sagged again, the decline being accelerated by considerable profit taking in the oils Texas company, falling 2 VJ 'and Mexican petroleum 1% points. Recessions otherwise were limited to fractions and tfrcrq was not a great quantity of stocks pressing for sale, the market's course being governed by purely technical conditions.

More Interest was shown In the food demonstration work yesterday than was shown the day before, and many good and helpful points were given to the housewives who were present Miss McLeod gave demonstrations on creaming and cooking dried vegetables and fruits in the morning. Somo of those which Bhb prepared were; cabbage, butter beans, celery", carrots, cherries and otherB. In the afternoon Miss Ward demonstrated conning fruit 1 , vegetables and meat.

The Great Bend bond was on hand enrly this morning, playing at the grounds before nine o'clock. Tomorrow wUl be Wichita Day nnd the Wichita boosters will also bring musicians with them to herald their arrival. The demonstration given yesterday by the Cleveland Tractor Company attracted unusual attention due to tho fact that It workB on the same principle which the American tanks work. No hole, ditch or excuvatton seemed to great for it to tackle and emerge successfully. Little,Gall Lander, daughter of Mr. and-Mrs. A. G.'Lander, Uie 100 per cent baby who was awarded the gold modal prize by the Women's Home Companion, Is still able to score very high missing only by one or two points from reaching the perfect mark, these points being in height or weight. She received her medal two years ago. "The real Interest is;.growing more and more in the Better Babies Department," Mrs.''it.' C. Layman, chairman said today, "Is very. noticeable to us because we have exanjlned more-children this year earlier than ever before. Then too, since the age limit has boon changed from twelve months to sixty months, this gives others a chance. This is the fourth year for soiUp of,Uie youngsters to be exumln- ed.MSoifar we haven't found any 100 p^tTiJju baby, but, many of them are fine." _™ore than 150 babies have been luuged in the first three'days of the Kansas Fair. Eighteen physicians assisted by two nurses have charge of the judging, which is all done behind glass apartments and fan bo socn easily. ' A nursery has bt»fcul fitted up where mothers can bring.their children for a few hours rest. One of the features of the racing program this afternoon was the horse. Clay Patch In the 2:17 pace. Clay Patch was the horse who nt tho recent fair in Topeka fell with his driver, J. F.

The government Is eager to co-operate with every 'effort leading toward the building of such plants as they will help conserve every par- tical of food grown in the country. Col. Scott Smith spoke of dehydrating of food yestorday afternoon. It is understood that within a few months a plant will be built in somo point in the central part of the state, If present plans materialize. It is very impressive each day ut the noon time when'lit the sound of the whistle a minute of silent, prayer for tlie solitiera and the cause of the- Allles Is held. There is not a sound during this brief period and e\ery hoad is bowed. It is the idea'"of Major W.
