In the various attacks launched by the British and French upwards of 1,000 prisoners were taken, together with a large number of guns. The artillery action prior to the infantry attack was of great intensity along tbe Forest-Clery Bector, while both British and French inaugurated further attacks at various other points. The German positions east of the village of Fleury also were overrun hy th« French, who carried several trenches and organized works.

IT PREVENTS RAILROAD TIE-UP New York, Sept. 4.--\inety-two la bor laws have been passed by con gross and state legislatures during the past legislative year, according to a surve> which was made public by the American Association for Labor Legislation. "The most significant items in this legislation." says J)r. John B. Andrews, "are two national laws, one prohibiting the shipment in interstate or foreign commerce of certain products In the preparation of which the labor of children has been employed, and the other providing a model scale ot workmen's compensation for personal injuries among federal employes, of which there are now more than 480,000. "Several hundred labor bills were in troduoed into congress this year," Dr. Andrews adds, "while eleven state legislatures, in spite of the 'reaction.' ground out their full share of the an nual grist." The association's summary says: "During the year seven of the eleven states holding regular legislative sessions passed new or strengthened old laws affecting child labor. Shorter hours. a higher minimum wage, prohibition of night work and exclusion from hazardous employments are the main tendencies."
