THE PROQRES3 OP THE WAR. Suddaa and aurprliing as the allied ffeaalva on Thursday was, it is no mors anrprlslng than the manner In which they have been able to keep up the adrance and put the Germans in the Solaaons salient to utter rout. Tb9 offensive reached a deolelre point yesterday 4n the recapture o{ Soiiaona from the Germans, with many prisoners and a large quantity of stores. The advance Is continuing and a section ot ttye miles has baen wrested from the eneoiy on hie side of the Aaore river. HOW TO aAVC THE SHORT GRAIN. News from all districts In the south is that many farmers with short crops are goins to harvest them even If the returns ai* not more than' two or three buehels to the acre, and they are buying headers .or making them In order to save this short grain. Th� fanners who are doing this are dlaplaying the proper spirit. Southern Albarta has a allm ei will be.dolne a patriotic In thla connection it is worth noting that' wblie headers are on the market which are especially designed for harveetlng abort grain, It Is pos-Bjbla to take an ordinary binder and equip it to do the work. The Mossey Rarria Company has Issued a faullslln � aettlngil^rth- the method tp be used. rWe cannot vouch for its efficiency, but ' it' aboiad work, so we poaa it along; Itia.^rth atriali >  i  Take the binder head off your binder, pnt on a flax attachment, cover Oaa attachment with canvas and^drop In bunches. Rig up a rack  like a header box and stack. By put-ting atripa ot old belting on reel slats wlU help to throw grain on platform. By thla maana a larger percentage of short grain oan be saved, and flye boabels' of wheat will pay tor the attachment and aave twine. sister WAS shot with a rlflo in his hands would never have occurred had there been a strong hand at tlio helm at Ottawa. Pr�vnter Borden should hurry homo fMm the 0(d Country if for no other 1^�on than to provide a policy to put a stop to the ware of Industrial unrest sweeping over Canada, and to put a man at tho head of the labor do-pnrtment who has tho tact and tho strongh to put tho policy into offoct. SHOULO PROTECT LITTLE BOW FARMERS. It appe-ars that, after much prod-diug. the provincial Kovernmont finally decided to do somethlnE to rellovo tho water shortage c-iused by the dry-ing-up of the Llttlo Bow River, and a diversion from the High River to tho Little Bow Is now being made. Criticism ot tlie government has been made, however, because ot the delay and also because tho diversion is not-.being made permanent. It would appear that tho criticism is warranted, to a large extent, at least. It Is the duty ot the provincial government to look after the Interests ot the farmers and ranchers in such a crisis as that caused by tho failure of the water in tho Little Bow. The government rose to the occasion in a splendid manner In tho matter ot securing hay and pasture for the stock In the south. To have exhibited a like interest in the needs of the ' Little Bow farmers would nnly have been what one would es'/ect. There are some 3,000 head ot cattle In the district affected and these are well worth saving. It would be in order Tor the government to settle on a permanent policy with regard to the Uttle Bow. This stream dries up in the dry seasons, and also freezes to the bottom in the winter. A permanent diversion of the Hlghwood River is needed to overcome thlp trouble and the provincial government ahould see that It is ^one.. Whether it is a Dominion government matter is not worth quibbling over. The provincial government ahould see that the Interests of the farmers of the province are protected. WOBFUl.
