The oUies have oiiened au attack In tho Noyon section tivlay which threatens that town and the communications loading to it. Otberwise, along the battlofront there is a lull today, consequent upon the difficulty ot bringing up tho heavy guns to follow the advance of the infantry. There is not much evidence ot German resistance anywhere. Tho situation in Russia is rapidly developing to n crisis. The Bolsho-Tikl govemmoni has loft Moscow, and the Germans have announced their Intention of occupying Petrograd In an effort to meet tbo advance of allied troops through Siberia. '^PICKED UP IN^ T>ASSTN^Ci'ToR THB BUSY MAN The popo was responsible for Boland's release from . Germany. Dr. The first organization of Czochoslov-acks In Western Canada has been established at Natal, B. C. THE DEVELOPIMENT OF OUR PLEASURE GROUNDS Calgary had a farm colled Bowness. It was out at the end.ot the street railway line and it wasn't much ot an attraction. Recently the superintendent ot the street railway took the farm and turned it into a park, with a water front, bathing pool, dancing pavilion, tents tor the use of picnic parties and all the rest. The result is that Calgarians are raving about havinf the most beautiful park in tho ^7esL And the street railway line is by way of making money. Lethbrldge has a park at the end of a street railway line that offers far more advantages than Bowness does at 'Calgary. But so far our commls sloritini seem to have failed to appreciate Its full possibilities. Anything that has been done there to make it more attractive has been done grudgingly. It a private corporation had owned the street railway system they would have had so many different ways to amuse the people at Henderson Park that It would have been the pleasure park ot the city long before this. We have been ^urging the city for a long time to make a greater effort to provide attractions at Henderson Park. They are proceeding slo-wly and each year Bees greater travel on the red lino. But it they would just consider what a private company would do in their place we believe they would mo,ve mucb more rapidly in the future. cessful fair can ho hoUi in conjunction with a st.imiu'de. The question is raised by tho F.irni and Ranch Ro-view, who5n representative prefaced his story of the Lethbrldge Fair and Stampoiio with tho following remarks: ".Spe.nking ot the fair itself, it was not too bad, but somehow or other It Is difficult to give tho livestock end of such an ovont tho attention It deserves when the main feature of tho show I? the stampede with its 'let er buck' atmosphere. Not that we wish to cold blanket tho stampede itself. It was tlio contro of interest at all times, quite logically, perhaps, asJt furnishes tho thrills and excitement. No ono likes to sco tho wild ones tamed, or the i^toers buU-doRged In such daring fashion nny better than we do. but it is a pity that tho two features cannot be separatoti so that tho entertainment provided by the ono and tho liberal education made possible by the other, cannot benefit the community as they should. When it comes to a matter of choice, the averago individual, if ho is human, win be found on the fringes ot dust kicked up by the outlaw horses and the bucking bulls. In our opinion tho two can be successfully staged together, but at the same time more attention will have to be given to the fair department of tho even*, another year. We could have gotten along with less stampede this year and still have given the big crowds plenty ot amusement. And we could have done more to make the fair end ot the show a success, though It must be remembered that the crops this year did not lend themselves to the usual fine display generally seen at Lethbrldge nor was the pasture situation such as to warrant the farmers spending n^ch money to put their stock In show condl-fion. However, anotheji year an early start should be made to provide that our own Southern Alberta farmers should make big exhibits. We know from past experience that they can beat the world in sheaf grains and grasses, and we know that they now have the livestock to make a much better showing than in the old days before the fair was suspeaded In 1914. It is merely a matter of or-.ganlzing the fanners to begin early in the year to prepare their exhibits for the fair,'and liiat could be dono by a little personp.l work amor.g them by the fair manasor. llight it not also to a gool idea to revive the district compctHIons in grains, grasses and vegetables which used to bring out the best from Card-ston, Carmangay, Raymond and othor points in the south. They are capable ot putting up wnderful displays to advertise their districts and they should grasp the opportunity again when it is offered to them.

The order to arrest all who had no visible means of support has rid Broadway, New York, It Is said, of five thousand loafers. Most of them have entered the service of the Am erican overseas army. RUSSIAN SITUATION IS BRIGHTER Russia is so far away and the political situation there is so muddled that It is almost impossible at this distance to grasp tho importance ot the developments there during the past few months. But we believe �we have the proper information when we say that the Russians have learned that they have been duped by the Bolshevlkl, that they hate the Germans just as much now as when IJjey wore taotivoly fSghttlng tbem, that the anti-Bolshevlki armies are becoming cemented into a real menace to the existing government, and that the allies have now taken active stops to Intervene, not against the Russian people but against the Russian govormnent which' signed a shamelul treaty with the Gerinans. What will come out of all this It Is hard to say, It Is the hope ot tho allies, of course, that Russia will yet present an eastern front to harrass the Germans in the rear. Tho Rus-�ians with their weight of numbers eavod tho situation early In the war. It Is Btlll possible that the eastern front may again be sot up. The German press acknowledges the possibility, of this and describes the present situation as dangerous to the Central Powers. The danger � is accentuated by the fact that the Blliea have turned on the Ger-mana on the western front. It the Russians are as sick ot German dom-tnation as wo have been lead to be-Uev�, a fitrong hand amone them �hpuld be able to align them once more on the aide of the allies, and that would end Xoreveir- the Gorman hope or victory.
