Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE ''Men of Canada, Fight pn*' Is the Message of Gothpers Oltawn, Aiwil 27,-"Men of {Iciiada fiBht on; carry on and victory will be yours and ours and for (h the city this morning from a trip td Vulcan and other points in the northern part of bis district. He says that in parts there is need of a little rain, but on the whole the outlook i.s good. "The farmers are well up witli their worli," said Mr. Qually to the Herald, "and the area being seeded is immense. .Many are making use of tractors for spring plowing and for double discing, but the tractors will not come into general use until summerfallowing operations are started." Quite a' large amount of seed has been secured tor farmers on patented land in the district around Lucky Strike. Mr. Qually also states that farmers on unpatented lands will have their needs looked after by the Dominion government. The labor situation is not serious, though there is quite a great deal of criticism of the cancellation of the exempt?ion of fui-mers' sons. New breaking is a feature of farming operations. In one little district around Magrath l.'iOO acres are being broken. The same may be said of many otiier districts througli the south. IN Convict 993 ONE OF THE CLEVEREST STORIES AND MOST INTERESTING PICTURES WE HAVE HAD. IN Tfit 8ECO(|JO OF MARY ROBERTS .RINEHART'S ' "SUB DEB" STORIES. BabsBurgliar FORESTALLED eUNS N FIERCE AJIACK With (ho French Army in France, April 2G-(Friday)-Some of me heaviest, fiercest fighting which has yet occuiTed in the battle of Picardy, followed the comparative quiet Thursday and until this morning. The Germans had taken advantage of the respite to relieve, exhausted divisions and bring up strong reinforcements with which they made a further effort today to reach Amiens. In the late hours of the night the. German artillery became much more active. Just as the enemy was about to launch a fresh infantry atiack with new divisions shortly after dawn, the French made a sudden attack, forestalling them. The attack swept along the line extending troni southward of Villers-Bretonneux to Han^aru. In the densest mist the French units engaged made their way through a terrific barrage, which relentlessly bat-tftfed roads, pathways, woods and fields. Notwithstanding the moat determined resistance by the large forces of German troops, which had been gathered for the attack tliey intended to make and had to' be driven back yard by yard, the French within two hours established themselves on a great part of the lines from which they retired early yesterday. The monument south of 'V^iJers-Bre-tonneux first fell into the hands of the French, then the northern part of Han-gard Wood and, finally a portion of Hangard village. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ,> .> .> > .> .;. .>..> ? ? ? ; ?

Constipation Cured in His 78th Year Without Drugs Did you ever kuovr any person who j was permanently cured of Constipa-j tion by taking drugs of any kind?' Drugs seem (o assist Nature at the j time, but as time goes on larger doses' are necessary until the trouble be-; cotne.s chronic. Internal Bathing is the only real! cure for Constipation. It keeps the Col-' on or Lower Intestine free from all accumulation. Soon the system per-foms its regular functions unaided, and there is no further trouble. Mr. A. McLean, of Conger Lumber Co.. Parry Sound, writes:-"I have been troubled with Constipation for the last 3'i or 40 years, and could not pass one day without taking medicine. I have used the 'J. B. L. Cascade' since I getting it 21 days ago, with wonderful ] results. Will recommend any person to use it." Dr. Chas. A. Tyrell of New York invented and perfected the "J. B. L. Cas-! cade" for Internal Bathing, which is { today the only efficient means of ac-1 complishing the desired results. Dr. Tyrrell has published an ii^teresflng book on Internal Bathing, called "Why Man of Today is Only 50 Per Cent. Efficient," which can be had free for the asking at the Red Cross Drug & Book Co., Lethbridge. They will also be pleased to show and explain tho "J. B. L. Cascade" to you.-^Advert.
