THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Von LudeiKlorf! is said to hare now deci�lod against any further massed attacks which proved so disastroii.s to the Gertuans iu the recent offen-aive. .\o further oaer.sive has as yet beer, developed by the Germans, aud the allies are now awaicing the resumption of activiiv with greater confidence than ever that the enemy will be unable to break through. COUNCIL NEEDS AN ORDER OF BUSINESS No one auLndin.^ a regular meeting IK tho t-iv ccu:i;.:il could help but be struck v.-;i'u tlie "iree and easy' methods which prevail. Tiiere appears to be au absolute lack of an order of business under which one might expect tlM! businesi of a ten million dolhii' corporation would be condtict-�d. The Herald has mentioned this lack Admiral Dewey's deaiiu she said: "I wish you and the people of the coun- ' try also to know that my laisbaud felt ! for the present Secretary of tlie Navy.

I am amazeil by his knowledge of technical matters. Ha has studied profoundly, and his opinion is founded on close obser- � vation." This opinioti of tiie secretary seems to be becomintr general and even'his most ardent newspaper critic? are ciiangiug their tune. It is pointed out that since the v.-ar began, so far as the United State? is coticerned. eleven .'Ur. 11, S. Allen of Raymond hixs just returned from tittawa where he attended a very important meeting to i-t'present tlic interest of wool growers. The war trade board called a meetini; at Ottawa, April 17. of woollen maiiiifacMirers. wool growers, wool pullers and wool dealers. The wool ;;rowers of Canada were ver.S' fortunate in having organized i.'i February last, at Toronto, a Dominion-wide organization of sheep breeders known of Toronto for "the" Harbor as tlie t'auadian co-opcrativo Wool C,io\yi!~0 officers and :'.2,i.O0O enlisted men. including marines and reserves.

KIND WORDS WHICH ARE APPRECIATED A large advertising agency writes the Herald v,-ith reference to its special aufomobiie and tractor number pubiirfhed about three weeks ago. "�\Ve are sure you do not; have to apologize for any hurry in getting up this special number. A number of that kind would ua a credit to any paper." One- of the largest motor concerns In Canada also writes: "Our first impression upon looking ver yoar automobile issue is one of urprise at the splendid way it is gotten upland at the importance and dimensions which the automobile and machinery business with allied Interests have reached in the Lethbrldge district." These are from a number of similar letters the Herald has received about the special number from large eastern manufacturers and advertisers. The number has evidently succeeded In doing what the Herald hoped it would do: call strongly to the attention of the easte.'-n manufacturer and jobber the 'importance of Lethbridga >s a distributing centre. That is one of the ways the Herald continually endeavors to help Lethbrldge and i (I'istrlcl-by advertiElng its possibilit- : ies far and wide.' i into the light of day where people can properly appreciate them. U. S. on an NO INJURY TO DAIRY INDUSTRY In the House of Commons on April X, the minister of agriauiture said that the Canadian exportation of butter since the war, as well as of cheese and condensed milk, had increased enormously, as shov,n by the following figures: : wool will bring iti the I unrestricted market, I A Good Board I Mr. Allen was much impressed with ! the pefsonel of the war trades board : their keen business acumen and clear ' '''=tt. more prevalent among civilians di.srrimination on the matters present-1 than soldiers. According to Capt. H. W. Hill, medical officer of health for London, Ont., who is also acting as military sanitary officer in Western Ontario, venereal disea3e is one hundred per ed to them. He thinks tho wool growers interests as well as those of the : manufacturers will be well looked af-: ter and all interests conceived wiil ! receive fair and just treatment, i In the opinion of Mr. Allen, the or-I ganizatlon of the Canadian co-opera-I tiye Wool Growers Ltd.. is one of the most important steps ever taken in Condensed Cheese Butter Milk ) the interest of the sheep men of Can-Lbs.

In 1913 Canada's total import.'; of butter amounted to 7.989,000 pounds; in 1917 importation into Canada dropped to 997,000 pounds. The %L-fect of the war upon Canadian supply was to reduce tiie amount of butter available for home consumption and to increase the price, .so that it ha.s become increasingly ilif-ficult for the poorer people -in tlie towns and cities to get the nece.ssar^-fats. Hence had arisen a demand from quarters throughout the country for the removal of the prohibition of the 'importation ' of oleomargarine, its manufacture and its sale. Mr. Crerar said there were only two firm* in Canada who had taken out CITtZENS A8K SOME INFORMATION Th^pros and cons of the garbaga j licenaes , to manufacture  oleomargar-truck purchase have bean pretty well  Ine in this country, but that any per-dlgcusied.

Representations were made from mi.^sionary socieWes in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and- Switzerland urging that the principle,of"fiuper-natlonal-ity," of missions and misi'^ ojiaries should be observed on the part-of all governments so that In time-of war missionaries and mlaaionary work would be considered apait- from the national relations of the miaaionarles concerned. ' , This, in the opinion of the Presbyterian board, would mean that all German missions, which have been nests for German intrigue, should be allowed to "carry on" during the war. U.

Rufiuo Despres, about 22 years o! age, was found dead in liis room at his boarding house in .VIoncton, X.B., with his throat cut. The motive for the deed is believed to have been fear of the Military S(?ivice Act.
