Tho Hritish, according to tho survey delivered the main thrust before Ypres and succeeded in ; capturing Langomarck in addition to ether places mentioned by Field Marshal Haig, but were unable to hold l.angemarck and St. Jullon in the face of a German counter-attack and were repulsed.

During the night th6 enemy also endeavored to raid our trenches southeast of Quennt and attacked one of our newly established posts northwest of War-Keton, ho wag'repulsed in both cases." WAR MENUS URGED. Canada's Food Controller Fight* Food Watte. A'PUZZLE FOR PADEREWSKI The adoption of war menus is ne of the planks . in Hon. \V. J. Hanna's platfor^n of food conservation. In hotels, restaurants, clubs and cafes all over the Dominion, there is still much extravagant use of foodstuffs. The same is true In the homes. It is estimated that enough food is wasted in the average Canadian home to feed a soldier at the front. Such waste must be stopped if the Dominion is to do its duty by Belgium. Serbia, France, Italy and the other Allies. iWhen ten nations ol the world are on rations, it Is a crime that there hould be food waste in the Dominion. Elimination of such waste would further mean saving in dollars and cents. Money is needed for the prosecution of the war. It is imperative if victory is to be secured.

Mr. Motherwell, president of the Irrigation association, in his opening address before the convention here, and again this evening, referred to the connection between dry farming and irrigation. He believed the ideal proposition would be for every dry farmer to have an acreage for irrigation for alfalfa and pasture. He also referred to his cautions of last year about continuing the most careful dry farming n^ethods, as the summerfallow had proved this year again in Saskatchewan and Alberta. He advised as the best corrective of the present situation digging tho noBe of the plow in the ground as soon as moisture conditions warrant after an early harvest. Vice-President Marnoch emphasized his remarks by referring to the oft-repeated remark that it was God's country or the country gone to hell according to the season. With all due reverence it was neither. It was man's country and it required a man's brains and a man's work to develop it. Hon. Mr. Motherwell commended the Lethbridge water conference, and Mr. Marnoch's address on more and better water. He said the greatest need of the farm today was better water He said the greatest need of the farir. today was better kitchens and more relief for the farmer's wWe3 and families.

Mr. Weir says the south is fairly free from weeds this year, Canada thistle and stink-weed being the worst offenders. -Mr. Weir was greatly surprised at the crops he has seen in the south as he had expected from reports to find the whole country burned up. Between Lethbridge and Calgary he expects to see a 25 bushel wheat average while there are many fields that will yield as high as 40 bushels. Harvesting in the south will start next week and will be general in week from Monday. WIN-WAR CONVENTION.
