The Length of the rope is grad uated according to the depth at which the mine is to be submer ged, which is ten or fifteen feet. In sweeping for mines, a wire slung between the boats fitted for the purpose, and is so arrang ed as to catch the mooring rope of the mine. There is a squadron of mine sweepers attached to the Fleet, and there is also a large squadron nf steam trawlers, manned by Royal Naval Reserve men, at work sweeping for mines. It is a highly-dangerous business. The employment of steam trawlers for this purpose was originally recommended by Admiral Charles Beresford. The method employed is for two trawlers proceeding in parallel lines 700 fathoms apart, %  to steam slowly over those areas of the sea along which it is believed that the enemy may have attempted secretly to lay sunken mines. The two vessels are lashed to gether by a long line of sub merged wire which sweeps along and when it makes contact re leases the mine from its anchor age and allows it to float to the surface. The mine is then ex ploded by rifle shots. For floating mines sometimes in the nature of a drift net is used.

War Notes
BATTLE OF THE AISNE IS
TOLD BY GENERAL FRENCH
Londpn, Tuesday, 9.35 p.m.
The following rescriptive account
from Field Marshal Sir John
French's headquarters of the Bri
tisli army's operations up to Sep-
tember 18, was issued to-night:
"General Headquarters, 18 Sept.,
1914: \t the date of the last nar-
rative, September 14, the Germans
weie making > determined resis-
tance along the River Aisne. Op-
position, which was at lirst thought
might possibly be of a rearguard
nature, not entailing matninl de-
lay to our progress, has developed
ami has proved to be more serious
than was anticipated.
"I he action now being fought by
the Germans along their line may,
it is true, have been undettaken in
order to gam tune for some Strate-
gic operation or move, and may
not be thejt main stand. Out if
this is so the fighting is naturally
on a scale which, as to exlent of
groun I niwi nI and duration "f re-
sistance, m ikes it undistinguish-
abl in its progress from what is
known as a "pitched battle",
though the enemy 01 t.iinly showed
signs of considerable disorganiza-
tion during the earlier d?ysof their
retirement phase.
"Whether it was orginally in-
tended by them to defend the posi-
tion they took up as strenuously as
they have done, or whether the de-
lay gained for them duiing the
twelfth and thirteenth by their ar-
tillery, has enabled them to develop
their resistance and force their line
to an extent not originally con-
templated, cannot yet be said.
"So far as we are concerned the
action still being contested is the
battle ol the Aisne, The foe we a re
fighting is just across that river
along the whole of our front to the
east and west. The struggle is not
confined to the valley of that river
though it will probadly bear its
name.
"The progress of our operations
and the French armies nearest us
for the 14, 15, 16, and 17, will now
be described:
"On Monday the 14th those of
our troops which had on the pre-
vious da.y crossed Aisne after driv-
ing in the German rear guards on
that evening, found portions of
the enemy's forces in prepared de-
fensive position on the right bank
and could little more than secure a
footing north of -the river. This
however, they maintained in spite
of two counter attacks delivered at
dusk and about ten p. m. in
which the fighting was severe.
"During the 14th strong rein-
forcements of our troops were pas.
sed to the north bank, the troops
crossing by ferry,by pontoon bridges
and bv the remains of permanent
bridges.Close co-operation with the
French forces was maintained, and
the general progress made was
good although the opposition was
vigorous, and the state of the roads
after the heavy rain made move-
ments slow.

FLOATING MINES
The Work Of Laying And *
Sweeping.
Thick weather it favourable to
the operation of mine laying.
The mine arc steel cylinders
containing several hundred
pounds of gun cotton. From the
top of tlie cylinder projects
spikes, which are connected with
a den a tor.
If a spike is struck, the dena


tor explodes the gun-cotton.
From the bottom of the cylinder
depend a rope, the other end of
which is secured to a weight
resting on the sea bottom.
The Length of the rope is grad
uated according to the depth at
which the mine is to be submer
ged, which is ten or fifteen feet.
In sweeping for mines, a wire
slung between the boats fitted
for the purpose, and is so arrang
ed as to catch the mooring rope
of the mine.
There is a squadron of mine
sweepers attached to the Fleet,
and there is also a large squad-
ron nf steam trawlers, manned
by Royal Naval Reserve men,
at work sweeping for mines. It
is a highly-dangerous business.
The employment of steam
trawlers for this purpose was
originally recommended by Ad-
miral Charles Beresford.
The method employed is for
two trawlers proceeding in
parallel lines 700 fathoms apart,
to steam slowly over those areas
of the sea along which it is be-
lieved that the enemy may have
attempted secretly to lay sunken
mines.
The two vessels are lashed to
gether by a long line of sub
merged wire which sweeps along
and when it makes contact re
leases the mine from its anchor
age and allows it to float to the
surface. The mine is then ex
ploded by rifle shots.
For floating mines sometimes
in the nature of a drift net is
used. Further out in the open
sea the work of mine-searching
is carried out by torpedo-boats.
