The German advance was stopped, which fact undoubtedly was partly due to the renewed activity of the Franco-English forces on the west front, as well as to the absolute necessity of giving a chance to recuperate to the armies on the east front, which had been fighting now incessantly for months. September 28, 1915, may be considered approximately as the date at which the Battle of Vilna ended.

The Mankuma Hill, on the right bank, belonging to the Franco-English Company, is somewhat taller than its neighbours: as usual in this silted-up archipelago, it trends from the north-east to the south-west. I had already shot the Ancobra River when paddling up, and was not over lucky when coming down.

Beyond this again is a strip belonging to the Franco-English Company; and, lastly, at the southern butt-end, divided by a break from the main ridge, lies the 'Tamsoo-Mewoosoo mines of Wassaw. The latter has lately been 'companyed, under the name of the 'Tacquah Gold Mines Company, by Dr. J. A. B. Horton and Mr.

Since then, France has sacrificed life to a terrible extent by keeping up the intensity of the fighting until the offensive ceased.

He came out second on the list, the first being a lady Miss Williams of whom he had often spoken to us in high terms, having been with her as a student at the Sorbonne, and who has since become directress of that most useful institution, the Franco-English Guild. We were told that Richard was the youngest agrege in France, and of course we were proud of it. Mr.

This drift has no connection with the Tákwá ridge-lodes. After morning tea on March 28 I bade a temporary adieu to my most hospitable host, and walked along the ridge-crest to the establishment of the Franco-English or African Gold Coast Company.

The 'Assini Hills' of the chart lie to the north, not to the south of the Tando water; and by day one can easily distinguish their broken line, blue and tree-clad.
