who have begun a great offensive
movement along the western bst
tie line, whioh extends from the
Narth Sea to the Swi frontier.
Two distinctive operations are
under way, one north of Arras
and the other in the Champagne
r?gidn, while there has been an
incessant bombardment along al
most the entire front
Both the British and French
have been sucoettfal, carrying
trenches extending over a distance
of 20 miles and a depth varying
up co two and a halt miles. It is
officially reported both from Paris
and London t&at the advauoe is
still beiug continued, and that
the ground gained in a large
measure has been held and con
solidated. Berlin admits the retirement of
the German forces at various
points, but minimises the result
of the engagements.
For several weeks British and
French artillery have been pound
ing fiercely and continuously at
the German line. The forward
movement of the infantry began
Saturday morning whenihousands
of allied troops threw themselves
against the German trenohes, in
whioh, though battered and torn
by heavy shells, the Germans
waited, having long expected the
onslaught. Much of the fiqrhtiug
was at close range, hand1 to hand
encounters being oarri 3d from
trench to trench. The heavy ar
tillery' continued to pour fourth a
rain of heavy projeotiles, while
aviators took the air to direct the
fighting and themselves engaged
in many combats.
Iu addition to heving captured
Souchez, a much disputed point
of vantage, the French have suc
ceeded iu forcing a passage of the
great series of trenohes and forti
fications in Champagne between
Auberive and Ville-sur-Tourbe,
driving the Germans to the second
line . of trencheB, two are three
miles to the rear. This offensive
is still in progress.
The British gains have been
mida to the north of Arras. They
have taken the town of Loos and
the qnarries northwest of Hnlluch,
and have compelled the Germans
to draw on their reserves to check
For the time being the dramatic
development of events in the west
have overshadowed those in the
eastern theater, where the Rus
sians have stayed the progress of
the Austro-Germans at many
points, and have apparently suc
ceeded in getting themselves well
in hand for farther offensive and
The quick answers of Greece to

atmosphere with respect to Bul

Government has notified the Pow

not intended as an cffensive meas

The statement in part says:
A sab-oommittee has thorough,

ing the imprisonment, torture,
murder, massacre and exile into
the deserts of northern Arabia of
defenseless and innooent Armen
ians, including deorepit men,
women and ohildren and their for

'Written testimonies of eye
witnesses have been exmii ed with
utmost care. The witnesses ex
amined included Armenians,
Greeks, Bulgarians, Italians, Ger
mans, lurks, Englishmen, Amer
icans, business men, travelers and
officials of great variety and rank.
Not a single statement can be
questioned as to the faots report
ed. These all agree in the declar
ations that from Smyrna on the
west to Persia and from the Blaok
Sea to Arabia propaganda of ex
termination for non-Moslems is
beiug carried on by the . -Turkish
Government, far surpassing in fe
rocity and exoeeding in destrno

Washington, Sept 17. Formal
recognition has been accorded by
the United States to the new gov

Charge Davis, of the American
Legation at Port au Prmco, ca
bled the State Department late to
day that be bad conveyed notice
of recognition to the Haitien
Government at 8 o'clock list
night. At the same time Rear
Admiral Caperton, commanding
the naval expenditionary force on
the island, reported to the N&vy
Department that he had exchang
ed national salutes with the Port
au Prince shore batteries and
oalled with his staff upon Presi
dent d' Artiguenave.
This action whioh will materi
ally strengthen the position of the
existing government, is in line
with the intention, of the Wash
ington administration to negotiate
a treaty by whioh the United
States will assume a virtual pro
tectorate over Hiti, supervising
her financial and police adminis
trations. The treaty is now be
fore the Haitien Congress for rati-'

not be completed without reoog

Sent. 25. The following facts
ooiicemipg a Michigan girl and
the House , of the Good Shepherd
la Detroit, should start a wave of
opposition which- should soon
sweep these infamous prisons fr'6m
the face of VEe earth. -.
Ruth was an unfortunate girl,
she had a good mother but never
kuew her father. When Ruth
was fivb months of age her mother
found it necessary to seek a home
for her among strangers. Mr.
audMrs E. H Kynett, membars
of, the "Seventh Dav AdventiBts
church, Agave Rath a home.
When Ruth was about twelve years
of age, Mr. Kynett died.
f As au evidence of his love for
her and au interest in her future
he made a hberial provision, by
will, for her education. Iu order
that Ruth! s interests and life
might be fully guarded. Mr. Ky
nett took out adoption papers un
der the laws of Florida, and was
also appointed by the court as
Later, ate with the girl moved
to Battle Creek, Miohigau. Ruth
was then sent to the Adventists
Seminary at Holly, Michigan.
During the first term of sohcol
she seemed happy and contented.
In the beginning of the seoond
term she became, associated with
some reckless gi'rj andran away
from school. . An officer Joand
her in Pontiaa and took her to the
police headquarters iu Battle
Creek. She was placed in the
cuitody of the matron. When
her imbther called for her. she was
informed that a charge of deliu-
the girl and that some legal pro
cedure was neoeaiary.
Judge . Poitar of Marshall,
Mioh., oalled W. K. Kellog, of
'Corn Flake" fame into oonsuK
tation. Mr. Kellog agreed to aot
as special probation officer for
Rath for a period of three yean.
He advised sending her to the
Methodist Seminary of Aurora,
111., and agresd to pay. her expen
ses. All investigation convinced
Mrs. Kynett that the school was
all right and she consented to the
arrangement. Mr. Kellog per
sonally accompanied the girl to
Aurora. He stopped on the way
at Marshal Fields in Chicago, and
purchased clothing for Ruth to
the amcuut of one hundred dol
lars. He did this regardless of
the faot that according to the
mother a testimony, hr clothing
was sufficient a ad satisfactory.
Ruth had been in the Methodist
school only a short time when
without any apparent reasou she
was secretly brought to Battle
Creek; hidden by Mr. Kellog from
her mother and then secretely
taken to the Home of the Good
Shephfrd in Detroit, where she
is at the present time.
The above faots were furnished
the writer by Mrs Kynett with
the urgent request that we employ
any means necessary to secure the'
release of Ruth. We found by
investigation that a little more
than three years ago she wrote
letters-to relatives, begging them
to secure her. release, from the
Iu one letter written shortly
after s she had been taken there,
she stated that if she had been
sent there for penanoe she had al
ready done her share. In the
same letter she stated that Mr.
Kellog didn't seem to care for her

par lawyer, MrMaybnr j, and tb

we maae a nasty investigation of

among those private papers, pub
licly exposed to- the gaze of here
tics a letter written by W. K.
Kellog to a Father Burke of De
troit just before Ruth was taken
thera iu which letter these are
significant words: "Ruth stood
well in her studies and in deport
ment in the Aurora school."
It is hard to harmonize these
words with things Ruth wrote re
latives just after going to the
House of Good Shepherd. In her
letter she informed them that she
understood she had been sent there
because of some serious physical
condition and that Mr. Kellog
told her she would only have to
stay a few weeks.
The above statements, especial
ly those of Mr. Kellog's, suggest
some very pertinent questions.
If Ruth stood well in her studies
and deportment in the. Methodist
sohool, why was she taken from
it to a Roman Catholio prison?
If her deportment was good, what
was the meaning of her physidal
condition which oalled for her
isolation from sooiety?
Recently Mr. Kellog wrote a
Knights of Oolumbas Committee
on religious prejudice, explaining
his altitude toward the Roman
Catholic church. His letter was
published in the Citizen. We are
sure that readers of The Menace
would be glad to read his sxpla
nation of his connection with the
Ruth Kynett case.
au uuuuiunuu, parnaps we
should state that Mrs. Kynett is
still Ruth's only legal guardian

the motner of Ruth has just be

K. Kellog & Co., are on one side
of the question, but God aud. hu
