Tho Germans have been rlgoroiisly counter-attacking tlie American and French lines within tlie past day or i two but have not accomplished much. ! In fact, tho allied forces have been ablo to advance their lines slightly In thb faco of the enemy resistance. The French and American! again ro-eumeil tho offensive yesterday, fith some success. Tho situation In Russia Is getting rapidly beyond the control of the Bol-jheviki. Increasingly important captures by the Czechs have caused alarm and the Bolshevlkl are reor-gajiizing tho army on now lines to force fieiTice by former Russian officers. not completed in time to be of uso but tho baseball ground waa taken advantage of and evidently appro-ctatod, somo very spirited games hav lug boon played. Tho fishing Is nil that can bo desired, not only in tho ditforcirf creeks and stnallor lakes, hut tho big Inko trout nrn very ploril;lul in tho main i.ikesi and some excellent catches were niado. Quito a number ot parties cujoyod oxoitirig climbs to tho summitfi of s.imo ot tti? ruggi'il and picture.=auo peaks in ll:o park. One parly after two days climbing, succeeded In attaining tlie suinnilt of Mount Cleveland to tlie south tho altitude ot which Is 10,."00 feet. Largo numbors of tourists spend a tow (lays in tho park travelling through from tho Glacier National Park and one and all were loud in their praisft* of fhei beauties ot tho Watorton 'Lakes park. Work has been . comnionced on a number ot siimnior cottages and many inquiries recnivod with regard to lota bolli for residential and business purposes. Quito a largo number ot tho lots in the townsite wore disposed of and the plans of llio proposed buildings thereon are ot a good type, of a rustic nature so .la to conform to tlio surroundings. Along the boulevards the under-griywtli and stumps wero all cleared and the property nindo much more attractive. A nnmber of rustic seats '^PICKED UP IN-* PASSING Sam In somo parts ot West Virginia women aro employed as coal miners. Tho railways of .lapnn aro largely operated by women. Xow York City lias over -t.nni) women barbers and hair dressers. Tho Calgary Chautauqua will open next week. Miss Sue norscy is an assistant paymaster in the I'nitcd States navy. Women In Knginnd hav6_ entered almost every trade except carpentry. Women in rrance arc from buying- tobacco. prohibited Industries in the tTnited States employ over ll.rtOd.ooO women and girls. In Torto Hico women can hold office but are prohl!)i�od from voting. Two ot the largest buiUlinge ot tho Provo woolen mills oupa.'jed on gov-, , , , , I ernmcnl contracts were destroyed by were built along the slioro ot the bay., ji^^ .j.^^^, estimated at $300.- We had n considerable Increase over ! former years in the number of visitors, over 4,000 coming to llio park la.ot soH.tou. As we aro some mileij from a railroad and tho season is quite slior.:. I think this is an excellent showing and proves that this park will become tamous as a summer resort and each year wilt seo greater nuinliors ot people taking adv,uita,qo of its different attractions. MAKING BUSINESS FOR THE STREET RAILWAY. We note the report that the city j council has granted permission for tho erection of a dancing pavilion (it Henderson Lake, and that dancing will be allowed under proper supervision. We note also that Commissioner Freeman is\advortislng on the street cars the days on which the merr}--gD-round is to be operated for the enjoyment of the kiddies.. ;  .Kor.aoubt the fact that the street railway made $2500 during fair week had something to do with these decisions" on the part of the citycoun-.cil. And tliey are just along the lines The Herald has been urging for years. We have always contended that the Jlendersqn Park Lake could be made the greatest resort for innocent amusement in Southern Alberta, and that by providing amusement there for the i people mucli could be done to increase ; street railw.'iy revenue. People are anxious to visit the park, but there mn|^t tie something besides the scenery to attract them. A vigorous campaign along the line of sports and amusements for all pleasure-seekers will do wonders to pull the Wreet railway out o� the hole and put it on a paying basis. ' SOUTHERN ALBERTA'S SUMMER RESORT. \ With better roads and trails leading Into Waterton Lakes park, the beauty 'pot of Southern Alberta, the resort Is bBComing known, and is being viB-� Ited annually by thousands of tourists. vThese do not come long distances, it is true,, but more and more the park �Is, becoming known, and with the J.greater recognition which is now be-;lng p.ccorded It, and with the adver �jtlsemdnt it Is receiving through ly-ilng alongside the Glacier National :'park south o� the line, it may be e)c ^'pectad that within a few years It .1-Will -be'-visited annually  by tens of lltKousaliaa,'"  ; ' ' ; ' LethbTiage "does .'not se^m to appreciate-* wlyit fKe .^evelopnjent of tlio ipark means to this city, and-as a r�-I'Bult- wa have.talcea but.a pasBlvo In-'itefestMH-what has been done-so far. !But it woull} peQnito Th^ Herald that we-are'-mlBslng a great opportunity ^to"put ourselves la line for a share � otthe great tourist traffic that 'bfings wealth to Alberta !each year.) The ' ireatest .Head' at. Waterton' is a mod-lern hotel.

That Proposed Abattoir. It is nothing less than suicidal, say some ot the citizens, for the ratepayers and business men of Champion to turn down a proposition calculated to meet the demand ot the local hog Industry and at the same time enhance tho business Interests ot tho town and community. We refer to the proposed abattoir which would have been launched by the Champion Meat Market, one of the most reliable firms in Champion. Turning this thing down will result in gendlng away at least 30 per cent, of U'Q trade to other towns. Champion farmers having hogs for sale will either go to Vulcan or Carmangay and naturally while, thero do part of their trading. Red Cross Notes. Mrs. J.
