The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

Dra­matic news again comes from the bat­tle-fronts. French troops have cap­tured the town of La Fere and crossed the La Fere-Laon rail­way. In this re­gion the vil­lages along the line of the River Selle are ablaze. The French have also made rapid progress through the St Gobain For­est, which is now prac­ti­cally cleared of the en­emy. Fur­ther east there has also been a big ad­vance and the loop of the Aisne has been cleared. The Bri­tish troops are at the gates of Douai, the im­por­tant man­u­fac­tur­ing city.
