Your King and Country Need Yeu Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The allies continue their gains on tho Flanders front, recapturing nil' ground taken by the Germans and ad-j vancing their lines to some extent. The j famous village of St. Julien has been i retaken by the allies, nnd all new po-j pitions have been consolidated. At Lens the Canadians are passing ; the advance and have already come j to within a few hundred yards of the city's centre. Conditions in the Russian army are ptill very chaotic, and the Germans have now actually entered upon Russian soil beyond Bukowina. Kerenaky j ^ecry. and his cabinet on Saturday threaten- ] ed resignation, but later withdrew,' their resignations and an attempt will j bo made to re-organize the cabinet j along more popular lines. Little at tempt is being made to check the ad vance of the Teutons. Canadian Northern railway is potentially a magnificent railway system. If properly capitalized and carefully managed it ought to be n great money maker within ten years. Tho question of the management of this road is not to be settled at this time by the parliament of Canada. The arrangement outlined by Sir Thomas White is of necessity temporary, it is a mere stop-gap arrangement. As a permanent solution of the problem of how we are to have government ownership of railways without their relentless exploitation for political purposes it will not do. For the government to appoint a governing board to control the road simply means political management with one remove. It is quite apparent that it is the fate of the Grand Trunk Pacific to become, in tho not distant future, the property of tho Canadian people. There is no alternative. The Grand Trunk cannot carry the road; and no aggregation of private capitalists would take over the road nnd its obligations if they were offered as a gift.

NATIONALIZATION OF THE CANADIAN NORTHERN. When this takes place Canada will own the Intercolonial, the Transcontinental, the Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern Railways-put together they will constitute a huge system. The movement may not stop here. The case for taking hi the Grand Trunk and adding it to the system is very strong.

Friday night a fire started i in the old burnings near the Fernle ' Lumber company's mill and Ranger Hart had a number of men working that night to keep it from spreading to tho lumber yard and buildings about the mill. This they succeeded in doing, but yesterday aftornoon another lire sprang up on the opposite side of tho railwuy from tho saw mill, about a mile and a half above town, and has been burning ever since, but without doing any damage, being in burnt over ground whero wood and posts have since been made. The dense volumes of smoke rolling skyward from these fires are to bo seen for a long distance, and in tho present state of tho public mind, cause nervousness, and while there in no immedluto danger through the lurking danger, the people are kept in a state of anxiety which will continue until a heavy rain comes to extinguish them. Manager Hoapey, of the Elk Lumber company, who has been here since last Tuesday, looking over the situation brought about by tho fateful lire of a week ago, has returned to Winnipeg, where it will be determined as to whether tho mill hero will be kopt In operation, or be Bhut down pending repairing of railways and rolling btock damaged by the lira, Unreserved Auction Sale 11 -OF - CATTLE at Magrath on SATURDAY, AUG. 1917, COMMENCING AT 10.30 A.M.
