AUGUST 6,1917 THE LETHBHIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE TTV$ The Waste of War w terrible, but the waste of food fai times of peace is. , colossal. Rich and poor | alike eat tons of food that 'has little food value-and this useless food breaks down the so-called eliminating organs and depletes the physical and mental powers. Shredded Wheal Biscuit is all food, prepared by a process which makes every particle thoroughly digested. It is 100 per cent, whole wheat. Two or three of these Biscuits with milk, make a nourishing meal, supplying the greatest amount of energy at lowest cost. Delicious with sliced bananas, berries or other fruits. Made in Canada.

Tho Teuton forces hare pushed to tho Serh In liukowina, capturing Rndautz and hare taken the heights along tho Moldavia and tho astern side of the liyslTfiTza. PUBLIC SPIRIT OF THE MAPLE CREEK PEOPLE G. R.

Hall, Soloist Alto Comedy and Current Event* THE BOGIE MAN m "Eat every crumb of those bread crusts or Dill Hanna'U get you."-Shlelds in Toronto Telegram. Life of Huns in Trenches On West Worst than Hell Berlin, via London, Aug. 6.-Max Os-born gives a very vivid picture of the gigantic battle raging in Flanders. "The never-ending howls and piercing screams," he writes, "are rending the ulr from the sea to the rlTor Lys, while accessory noises like growls and blows seem to spring from everywhere on the Yser, in front of Dixmude and Langemarck, around Hollobeke and Warnnton. The whole of weBt Plan-derB Is one large steaming pot wherein brow death and devastation, with the sun laughing its brightest. Terrific nover-onding thunder storms are raging over tho land. In the midst of the noises such as the old earth never heard before, the crop of new battles and new wars between nations Is growing to maturity. What was the Sommc and Arras vand the Aisne and Champagne against this earthquake of Flanders. Millions of capital are blown up In tho air and explode in the ground. It is like a cyclopean concert of unhoard-ot' brutality to celebrate with becoming fitness the end ot tho third year of universal madness. The louder the desire of nations for poace! begins to express itself the wilder the -thunder of-the guns at England's command to deafen any cry of hope. "Sometimes one thinks tho end of tho bloody intoxication Is coming, but there still are graduations of description for which there are no words. Wo thought wo had got accustomed to the atroclousness of all this and at home you may forget tho events at the front for days. Our senses and nerves must certainly hnve suffered these awful three years. Spirit and feelings seek to escape the intolerable horror, but It is no use bore. Up against the worst form of slaughter, again tho nameless noises bring It home to you with an overpowering force. "This battlo has lasted for days. It is again that continuous roar that effaces or rather consumes all individual noises that make even fierce explosions close by you indistinguishable. Everything disappears in one loud rolling, threatening gurgle. The air crys it a hundred miles distant and tremblingly they listen south and north, west and east, when they cannot see the horror of all this. But If you come nearer It is like the earth's bowels exploding. Our soldiers sit In their dugouts and cannot do anything but tru3t to luck. Just now the infantry 7nust. keep quiet, only tho big guns are talking. The waiting infantry ii like men locked In prison. They cannot get out nor can anybody approach them. The way to them Is fraught with foarful danger. All round are stool splinters, shrapnel, bullets, stones and earth. If you are hit, you aro dead or crippled. What shall ono do? One smokes Incessantly until tho air in the narrow shaft is heavy onough to cut. That is bad, but somehow it helps to stand oil the horror of tho situation. "So one lives for days In the closest contact with comrades in very littlo apace. You cau move, hut are unable to think clearly. Never did I realize how difficult it can be to lead a human life." What the Press Agents Say STRICKEN IN THE STREET Completely Restored To Health By "Fruit-a-tives" 88$ St. Vamich St., Mohtiml.

SPECIAL TRAIN AT STARLAND Many a court room scene has figured on the screen but nevo'r a one like that which is seen In Pauline Frederick's latest starring vehicle, "Sleeping Fires." Because this particular court room scene was actually secured in the court room ot a certain town whore the judicial department prides ltiolf upon its up-to-date Improvements in equipment and procedure.
