A, McCLARTY, Lady Supt. LO WELFARE DAY0NSEPI.2 Day Chosen Throughout Alberta For Big "Save The Baby" Campaign THE BUSY STORED It has been decided to select September 21st next as Child Welfare Day tlirougliout Alberta and to hold a tag day in the citiea and towns of tho province in tho Interests of a great baby saving campaign. The vital importance of giving greater attention to the conservation ot baby life has been very much emphasized by tho war. Investigation has shown th.tt there' has been a serious wastage ot human life going on because of ignorance, selfishnesa and neglect. Some authorities claim that as many as 35,000 Canadian children under five years of age are dying annually from causes that could bo prevented. According to our inilUary slatlclan this is equal to tho loss by death oc-ca.sloned by the war during tho first three years of its course. In a country like Canada where population is so much needed and sought after, tills Is hard to explain, tor it means that in the past years several hundred thnuannd native boru citizens luvve been lost. In Great Britain, France and tho United States, tho governments are already awakening to the seriousness of this problem and vigorous measures have been takon to conserve these, the greatest assets ot tho notion. In the United Stateq tho gov-ernmont has inaugiiratod a nation wldo movement for the saving of 100,-000 baby lives this year. In Canada thero has boon as yet 'no national movement along these lines. Government action has no doubt been wai'.-od on to awaken public interest. In Alberta the government has adopted an aggressive policy of public health but to support it on an adoquafa scale there Is need ot greater public Interest. Tho Social Servica League ot the province recently appointed a special secretary for child welfare ih the person of Hov. E. S. Bishop to organize and conduct a vigorous campaign ot public education In ordei" to savo as many as possible ot tho 1600 babies who dio in this proiflnco aunually. To conduct this campaign on an adetiuato scale rotiulros equipment of exhibits, literature, lantern slides, films, etc. There ia no doubt but that thero will be a generous public responsa to this appeal.

Rogers of Bi:ooklyft, IVUiSB., was klllod late yesterday evening In an �U-ulauo accldiiut at CUauute Field. Ottawa, Aug. 2.-A dispatch from General Sir Arthur Currie, commanding the Canadian corps at the front, to Sir Edward Kemp, overseas minister ot militia, has been cabled to the militia headquarters here. It is as follows; � "Everything with us Is going very well. Wo have taken up again our policy ot continually worrying the floche and have put on quite a number or raids with success. We have taken a number of prisoners and machino guns and have killed quite a lot of Germans. So active have we been that the Bocho has considerably reinforced his line opposite to us, so that if wo are not actively fighting, we are keeping a fair share of his men from taking part in tho battle. Prisoners tell us that they suffered quite a lot from our fire and are moving their lines somewhat." : * >> THE CHAUTAUQUA. ? ? (By S. S. Dunham, Chairman.) ? ? ? �>> > � Possibly some of our people have not yet realized that tho Chautauqua is strictly non sectarian and nou ptir-tlzan. That It Is an educational movement, international in itg scope intended for the general uplift of the moral and intellectual standing ot ttte people. The writer is particularly anxious that all elements that stand for the betterment of society in oiir city shall co-operato in the movement. No minister ot whatever denomination needs to hesitate in using his influence both in and out of the pulpit to Induce his people' to take advan; tage ot the opportunities "offered iiy the Chautauqua. We are .glad" to say that among those who. guaranteed the Chautauqua this year are a number ot tho prominent clergymen. This act on thoir part was voli;nt5iry and prompted In their desire' for the general good. We think' we are fairly well acquainted with the personnel of tho clergy of our city and knowing^ them as We do, we rely oti their liearty cooperation in the promotion of this work. The Chautauqua naturally appoiala to the intellectual, the educated and the people seeking for better things and the more of our peojile whfi attend, the greater will be the baaeflt obtained, and the hfgUer wlfl tee' the laor.ai aad Intellectual standiog of our city. Suppose we belong to dlfterant churches. It Is wonderful hpw'inuch we have in common. Are not our r^al objects common to all, ajid a.i'fl wo not all attempting to follow the
