Main Paris, Sept. 25.--1 'rcparatlonB for i lie present yreal operations 111 Macedonia began hi August, telegraphs the correspondent of the Petit 1 j R risen on the Salonlkl front. Various ell- (rnaxea prevented Oeneml Franrhet 1> Ksperey, the Allied commander, from beginning his preparations I earlier and work was imperative for if the summer heat lingers along the | coast, the winter is often early and severe III the blah .mountain zones. . The sector chosen for the attack Jlarked communications except for goat I pallis which were impractlable for 1 arllllery. A road was ialil out, from ! IHijno to Pojar and Grevesta, and ' Serbian engineers set to work vigor- i ously long before the French troops .10 whom had been assigned the task 'of piercing the Dulfiarlnn line, were I available. J The Allied staff established jiuarl- , ers on the ground and tackled the ; enormous task of preparation. ' The mountainous region from Dob- ,'ropolje to Koziak, the correspondent i 1 adds. Is very wild and covered with ' low brushwood and dense forests in- |tercepled with deep ravines, chasms ;iind precipices. The Uulears thought themselves so safe from attack by l reason of these natural difficulties . lliiit they did not attempt to interfere ; with the Allied preliminary work and contented themselves merely with reinforcing their line, the more easily to hurl back the Allies. Little by little as the road was built, (runs were pushed up toward the front and huge atnmunition dumps constructed. Brought Up Big Guns. Heavy puns were hoisted into position at an altitude of C,000 feet. They w ere brought as far as possible By t motors, then hauled by horses and mules and finally dragged into place by man powerT Soldiers of the signal detachment had lo become Alpinists to lay their leleplione and telegraph lines in this clioas of rocks and trees. The .Bulgarians watched all these efforts and fulled even to shell the Allies occasionally. II \u\K.\ be added, hovecer, continued the correspondent, that every thing that could be hidden was camouflaged admirably. Brought Up in Night. It was only during the night pre- ceeding Ihe attack that the assaulting troops were brought up. Promptly at !> o'clock on the morning of September M, the artillery opened with such vigor as lo surprise the Bulgarians whp were not aware that heavy guns .were facing them. The brush-wood wu£$non set on fire and long columns • of yellowish smoke began to ascend ! from, the hillsides, while the great i valley resounded to the roar of the Euns. The artillery preparation lasted all day. The Bulgarians t ried to reply with 1.1-Vs but did litUe harni. Over.the Top. On September la at .°i o'clock in the morning the Allied creeping barrage ! fire began and the French colonials • went over the top. They rushed the ! enemy irenches with bomb and bay- i oiietv Senegalese troops captured the I first line and !*00 demoralized prisoners In a few miuules. They took the ! second Hue, except for one trench ' which was cruramed with machine ! guns. A coirinany of Senegalese bombers attacked this trench in the rear anil It also fell. The Bulgarians uegan-to pull themselves together and offered stubborn resistance and even attempted to hurl the Allies back over their original line, but Allied reinforcements were thrown in quickly. The Bulgarian picked troops fought desperately giving ground inch by inch. Fought for Crest. The Krantza crest, the key of the Bulgarian defense Jn this sector, was taken and retaken several times but finally remained in the bands of Ihe Allies. On the left a French division had taken Sokol aud Dobropolje and a swamp which was thick with hidden machine guns. The Serbs on the right held Vetlonik aud the "Elephant's ear." At fi o'clock in the afternoon the Allied success was complete. The Allied loss notwithstanding; the desperate resistance of the Bulgarians, were light. The Allies captured more than 3,000 prisoners, Inflicting severe losses on the enemy and topk fifty guns, Including a number of lfiS'a. The Sef- ulHiif Immediately turned the heavier guns against the Bulgarians. Quantities of trench mortars, machine guns and rifles anil a considerable stock of munitions also were taken from the enemy. and for flowers for shut-ins were taken up. Dainty refreshmenes were served. RENO COifYlAR WELL • REPRESENTED IN SERVICE EXHIBIT OF INTEREST Is to Visit Hutchinson Saturday Aflernocrti—For Raising the Fourth Liberty Loan. Can Boast of a Greater Percentage of Men Gone Than' Any Other in State. •The Iteno County Bar Association has the distinction ot being represented in the government's service by a greater percentage of men, accordingly than any niter bar- association In the stale. This Interesting statement was made yesterday by F. Dumont Smith who had been discussing the facts In .Ihe otflco of Carr ,\V. Taylor. "There arc only thirty-five members of the Association here." Mr. Smith said, "but wo have thirteen stars on our honor flag and that means thut thirteen of our voung lawyers are in the service. Every one was a volunteer, too. Wheu this is compared to the larger bar associations in tho slate, It can be readily seen that we have sent more men by far than any other such organisation.* Wiohita has a membership of more than one hundred but she hasn't sent more than thirteen and the same is true of To- pekn. There, the bar boasts of more than one hundred and twenty-five hut they can't boast of sending nuy such a proportion as that." Already the older lawyers are feeling the loss of the younger men who could be counted ou to help out in the filling out of the questionnaires but who are now in the service themselves. Many more are preparing to no also within a few months and their absence wliralso have a telliug effect. MORE HELP WANTED. Stenographers and Typists Wanted by - Government in Washington, D. C.

One of those taken into custody for qurationing is Harry 1-ancasicr a brother, and another is a woman said to have been the sweetheart of Hie dead uian, ftoscoo, usually known a.-i Hoy, Lancaster. Out All Night. What information these persons gave the police was not disclosed, but It was known that a large party ot officers armed with riot guns was out the greater part of the night. The destination of the officers was not announced. • ' With the death of Roscoe Lancaster, all hut a fe,w of the band which is believed to have robbed a Missouri, Kansas and Texas passenger train near Koch, Kansas, July 10, last, and to have engugei) in a number of other lawless operations in the west, are believed to hare been accounted for. Members of tho baud huve been estimated to number from seven to eleven, of whom ; several are women. Among those sought is Dale Jonea, reputed to ho one of the leaders of the band. AUTOMOBILES COLLIDED. The Liberty Ixian Special Is to arrive iu Hutchinson next Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock over the Santa Fe railroad and is to be parked just north of the Chalmers Hotel on the spur. This Liberty Loan train Is something that every person In Hutchinson ami Heno county will want to Sou. It is touring the Tenth Federal Reserve District and In behalf of the Fourth Liberty Loan. Carrying a large exhibit of war trophies captured by American soldiers In one or the last big drives, this train will he ot particular interest to everyone. German howllters, minium-; werfers, selge guns, which a few short weeks ago were raining shells on our troops, French machine guns and field pieces, some of which hud been captured by the Huns and then recaptured by our boys, as well as shells and all manner of relics which show as nothing else can what our men arc going through over at the trout. Newly Captured. Tho trophies are all newly captured, most of thorn'having landed at Hobokeu, Sept. 12 and were rushed to Kansas City, arriving there less than four weeks after they lert the front Hues in France. Many of the piece* still have the mud of tho trenches , a'dherlng lo them and all of tho guns are well camouflaged. In addition to the captured trophies the exhibits will contain several types of American machine guns, aero bombs, navy mines, shells, and other Americaniequipmeut exactly as used at the front. Enroute to France. Of especial interest in •'connection with the American equipment is the fact that all of it will be sent to France for use later. People will be able to seo aud have explained to them concerning aero bombs that later may bo among those rained on Iterlln, They can wish "good luck" on machine guns which will be in the hands of American boys in No Man's Land in a few weeks and view shells which will soon be screaming over the heads of our troops toward German positions. This material presents a very complete exposition of what the bonds -bought in the "Fighllug Fourth Liberty Ixian will pay for. The exhibit train will consist ot two flat cars, one box car and a Pullman. It Is to be parked just north of the Chalmers Hotel on the Santa Fe spur and will be in Hutchinson just three hours on Saturday aftemoon. Tell Their Story. The soldiers who will accompany the train have Just returned from France, some of them having been in ihe. trenches since the first American occupancy. All of thetn have been over over the lop, not once but many times. They have all been wounded and have been through everything that war has to offer. They bring back a message of The war as the boys see it over there, and carry the plea of the men from tho trenches for unlimited backing by the people over here. These boys are not orators. They will be found just plain ordinary American soldiers who have done their bit and are extremely modest about it. Tbelr simple stories and the relics they and their comrades have captured form a combination ot tremendous interest. Gas Equals Ik Million Cars of Coal.
