"While the enemy hopes to frustrate our plan by forcing changes by weight ot numbers, so far the Incomparable steadfastness of our soldiers lias deprived the enemy of the fruits ot his schemes. "The latest report is that the enemy has carried Wytschaete and established himself in Spanbroekmolen. Therefore, although we are on the slopes of Messina's Ridge, the greater part of the ridge is in the enemy's hands. Hard Attacks "The enemy is attacking hard In the direction of Meteren and the situation there is obscure. From La Bassee to Robecq the Germans are vigorously shelling our lines. At Boy-elles, south of Arras, the enemy gained a footing in our trench system but a countei* attack drove him out." British Official The enemy also endeavored to develop an attack yesterday afternoon east of Robecq, following the bombardment already reported, but his advance was broken up by our fire. "In consequence of the progress made by the enemy on the Lys front, our troops holding our forward positions east of Ypres have been withdrawn to a new line. The withdrawal was carried out deliberately, without interference by the enemy. Yesterday afternoon parties of his troopB, advancing over our- old positions were Macleod, April 16.-The past week has been one of the best for the farmer In the carrying out ot his greater production campaign. The weather was all that could be wished for, bright sunshiny days, a warm west wind that dried any wet places making them so that the seed could be sown. The ground was in good condition, stock and tractors In good working order, and with plenty of good seed and a light shower or two all went merry as a wedding bell, until the report of formalin having been tampered with stopped some from the seeding for a few hours, but blue stone was Immediately used and the result was that Saturday saw about fifty per cent, of the ground seeded w^th wheat. The origin of the formalin story seems to be a mystery, but many of the first fields sown are now showing the green of the plants from the seed so treated, and all, are watching the germination of the grain which so far Is all right. A few days ago Major Starnes in charge of the R.N.W.M.P. here, was called to Regina. He has since been heard of at Quebec with bis men. Supt. Tucker, who was In command here, was called north to attend the funeral of his brother, and Supt. McDonald of Cardston is now in command. Orders hay* gone out to have all men, horses and equipment returned to the post here. These will be all received during this week. Aa all the N.C.'s and men have volunteered for overseas service, there Is still living in the hearts of these men the hope that they will yet be sent as a unit. The number of men here when all ere in will be about 86, perhaps 40. Bob Loi7G . , UNION MAD! OVERALLS SHIRTS K GLOVES  ��y*��*v��9*�a�^ The ft Nash $9 The car with the perfected valve In head meter.
