Your King nnd Country Need You Rignt Now I THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Tho Canadians have again been making history tho past week or two. As at Ypres. St. Julien and Vimy Kidge the lads from the Dominion have at Lens won Kreat glory. The capture of Hill 70 and its successful retention against the fiercest kind of counter-attacks, ranks with the capture ot Vimy ridge in importance, i though not so spectacular. After re-! pulsing more than a dozen German at- j tacks made in force, the Canadians ; have been able to strengthen their po- j sition3 at Hill To, and make further j progress into Lens City. When the | history of the war is written the Cann- j dians' operations of the past fortnight i will find a very prominent place. j The French offensive at Verdun has ! been of surprising magnitude. The ! Germans hero also have conducted se- vore counter-attacks with reinforce-. ments hastily gathered, but without ' success. j German attacks against the British : orovlncc. $100,000 during tu>? nrj:"- who wa3 noBiinated ty the Po- the representative of His Majesty on ' Monday morning. After a short conference he opened a savings hank ac-! count. He says he wili not make the amount any larger, but time will prove this. j T. C. Fraser. a travelling man. has ; changed his mind as to getting over j the country by horse and buggy, and invested in a trusty Ford. i George Tanner the implement man, has taken the agency for tho Dodge Bros, cars, and is now supplying his customers. P. Denieaire. who homesteaded here a few years ago, sold out and went north. His longing for the Macleod district has always been great, so he disposed of his land in tlie north country, and has bought a section and a half a few miles from town, and like all others he says he has now the best farm in the country. J. W. McDonald, who was called to days ago. Rev. S. MIddleton visited Macleod from the camp at Waterton Lakes this week. Dr. Frazer, R.N.W.M.P., at Waterton Camp, was visiting Macleod this week. O. ,T. Ammuson, Claresholm, is on a business trip to Macleod. few weeks �ach summer at Waterton Lakes, camping, fishing, boating and I proposals .nor the good intention back I generally havine ti rfimt tfmp tmc i of them.

They carr/their own camp ^Z*1"T gU�StS tW� J. H. Schofield, Pincher Creek, was doing the town in a business way this wisdom of' their acceptance by the enemies of the central powers at this time. To declare peace oh these terms is to quit with the Kaiser victor. True, he has not gained what he set out to gain-he has not conquered the world. But he no longer hopes to do and go and come as they please. The large number of tourists at this noted summer resort is one of the best advertisements that Southern Alberta, and Canada can have, Rev. S. Middle-i,,* �, ii s .i t�n does his share to spread to the with him in this advantageous position, he will get the credit of giving up much when he.merely restores that which does not belong to him. He will be ready to renew the war when he has recuperated. There will be no guarantee of future peace. The sore will be salved over, not healed; and it will be likely to break out anew at some future time. The fabulous wealth and tho countless lives which have been sacrificed to this war should not be sacrificed in vain. They will have been if such berta, and many will carry with them to their homes, sweet memories of August rjth, 1917, spent at the Haz-zard Hotel, Waterton Lakes, Alberta. On Friday evening Mr. MIddleton gave to the people one of the best concerts ever held in Southern Alberta, at this very noted hotel, the dining room being at his use for the evening by the worthy proprietor for the occasion. Mr. MIddleton had spent some time in the preparation, and every one was willing to assist in such a worthy undertaking, thtiB mak- a poace is declared. But if this war iinB lne work of putting on the concert is fought to a finish, if autocracy is I much less a task than otherwise would driven out of Europe, if small nations jllave been. It was for the Red Cross, as well as great are permitted to de velop and thrive, if war is made improbable by the establishment of popular government and the maintenance of an efficient international tribunal, then this war has not been in Vain. The soldiers who have died Will have given their lives for the security of liberty and happiness for their posterity. The natural desire of a kind-hearted Pope is to save the world from further bloodshed and suffering should not be permitted to stampede the nations Into an ill-advised peace. The Pope's proposals must ho given the careful consideration any announcement from puch a high source merits, but there mi!6t he no hesitancy in rejecting it, If it is found inopportune. week. | F. W. Godsal, Cowley, paid a business trip to Macleod lately. litical Equality league. Nanton would receive large Liberal support. Count von Bornetorff, the former German ambassador to the United States, has been appointed, according to tho Berlin Vossische Zeitung, to the post at Constantinople. He will leave Berlin immediately. Major W. W. Foster, D.S.O., ot Victoria, formerly deputy minister of public works and M.P.P. for the Islands, who has already demonstrated remarkable abilities as a soldier, lias won further distinction recently in being promoted to colonel and placed in command of a prairie battalion. CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS. The Toronto Globe says: Every Canadian should feel a sense of humiliation on reading the unchallenged statement of a Conservative member of the house of commons that both political parties derive campaign funds from railway promoters. And railway "subscription" are often public money which has been voted by parliament to railway interests. Under this system parties aro financed out Of the public exchequer. While Mr. Bennett was making these charges at Ottawa evidence was being given by A. R. Gould, a railway contractor, in New Brunswick, that lie had some years ago given Hon. $ K. Flemmlng, then premier of that and the first of the kiud held in this part of the country, but it will not be the last, as the big hearted proprietor of the hotel, assisted by the worthy parks superintendent and every one decided that this Red Cross Society wilPhear from the Waterton Lakes every month in a way that will strengthen their bank account to at least a small amount. J. W, Johnson of the Dominion Parka department was voted to the chair, and made an excollent chairman. Supt, Starnes and his body of lied Coats, were a strength to the programme. Ml83 MarquiBe, as a soloist and musician, won the hearts of the people with her sweet voice, and soft touch of the piano, all will remember her when all else is forgotten. Tho programme was opened by the chairman's address; piano solo, V. Mnckwhey; song, Serg. Hold; address, Rev. S. MIddleton; song, Inspector Dann; song, Miss Marquise; address, J. W.

The uudionco was composed of travellers and tourists from all partB of tho world. I-adies of prominence spoke of tho concert as tho beBt heard for years and in this little corner of Alberta. Another instance of a man without a license, and under the influence of liquor, driving a car, or trying to drive one, was soon Saturday evening, when a driver ran against a tolepliono polo without damaging tho pole, but con-I slderably damaging the cur, uiso a I slight Jar to himself.
