ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Russians have been fully successful in their rear guard actions to protect the retreat of their main army from tion of which city announced. At several points the.Kus- slans have defeated the Teutons with heavy losses, and the invaders have not yet been a.ble to actually enter the Polish capital. Bridges on the Vis- tula have been blown up to still fur- ther impede the progress of the Ger- man troops. To the north-east of the Russians successfully de- feated a concentrated effort on the part the entire German force to throw them from their positions. The British Empire was given over yesterday to tho celebration of the first anniversary of the declaration of war by services of prayer ana inter- cession, and by patriotic meetings at which Britain's intention to prosecute the war to victory, was re-affirmed. Russian airmen bombarded Con- stantinople yesterday, doing consider- able damage. There is no further news of the British fighting in France. on ten hours abead of schedule time.

He has seen the great crops with his own eyes and fenows that the extension is required. The fall fair season is approaching. Tight though money is, it is pleasinj to know .that many uomir.unities will keep tho fall exhibition iu the "Busi- ness as Vsual" class. The fall fair is educative as well as entertaining -in character, and the more -wo have ot them the better for the country, provided they do not allow themselves to toe carried away with too big ideas. The real country fair is beneficial. Lethbridge business men should make It a point to visit these fairs. All the south towns are our business friends.

It is a pity more trees were not planted at Henderson Park this year. trees planted. last year at Battery Point 'have flourished splendidly and in a few years this point on the lake will be a veritable woodland. We all know that last year was a vastly jtoorer year for trees than this year.
