It was anoounced the other day that General Poch entrusted the carrying out of his plan for the splendid French counter-offensive between the Aimne and the Marne to General Fayoloe, under whom Generals Mangin and Degoutte were in actual command of the two armies engaged. We need hardly remind our readers that the counter-more in question began on July i8, on a front of twenty-seven miles, and that the Americans co-operated with the French. It was General Payosle who stopped the -enemy rush

towards Paris at the end of March. In 9gz5, he was the victor at Carency and Ablan- Saint-Nazaire ; and he played a distinguished part in forcing the Germans to retreat on the Somme in 19×6. Before last March, he was in Italy for a time, at the head of the French forces there, a poastion he took up after having been in command of the French Armies of the Centre, on the Western Front President Poincacr visited General Fayolle’s Headquarters on July aS, and Conferred the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour on him.
