Canadian Army Headquarters in France, August 'i'i.-Another turn of tho screw was made (his morning on the southwest front of Liuu:, at three o'clock, after a short but. Intense bombardment. Tho Manitoba troops attacked the green .gassier, a huge heap of pit refuse on the north bunks of tho .Souchez Hlver, by which our advance into Lens from the south was bailed. The Fosse St. Louis, which consists of a tangle of pithead machinery, shot, lo pieces by many bombardments, -was also attacked. On a front, of nbout 700 yards the Manitob-ans went forward from -'00 to '.100 yards and opened the way toward thn heart of tho city on tho south as tho other advances of tho past week had dene on the north and west. The possession' of green gassier will also enable our men to sweep with their machino guns n vide tract of country to tho south of the Soucliez Hlver now occupied by the enemy, Including the mining village of St. An-toine. The details of tho fighting are not available yet. The onemy, however, is known to have made a stubborn resistance which was materially helped by several of his aeroplanes that hung low over our advancing troops and shot at them with their machino guns. One of tho enemy airplanes was brought down in flames by a British airman and another was driven down out of control. After they ejected the enemy our men after consolidating, eamo under machino gun fire from the mouth of a tunnel east of tho St. Louis pits which made advance all the more difficult. Tho Germans set great store on the ground attacked this morning. Wounded prisoners state that it was hold by two battalions.

GOODS ON VIEW FRIDAY EVENING TERMS CASH PHONES 770-469 A Good Impression. First impressions are tenacious. The customer who gets an unpleasant impression on his first visit to a store, is not likely a permanent customer. On the contrary, a favorable-first impression will insure a steady patronage. First impressions are often obtained from a firm's advertising, even before the store is visited. A frank, straightforward statement of values and advantages, will create an impression of fair dealing, and bring the customer to the store in a receptive state of mind. Our advice to merchants is to give careful thought to their advertising and to' advertise re6ularty- ........,^S(fiiiW(. COPVWONTeo 181. "Blind alley" jobs, as an editorial writer in the Montreal Star characterizes tho many openings for unskilled work, well paid, beckoning to tho returned man, have been found to bo one of the greatest menaces to tho future welfare of tho war veterans, according to tho experience of tho directors of the vocational training schools established in connection with the Military Hospitals. Tho editorial writer says: "Many of the soldfors must be saved from themselves. Just now it is easy to find work which makes no particular demand upon a worker's skill, but is at the same time well paid. A return to normal conditions after the war will greatly alter industrial conditions and the war veteran who has allowed himself to'slip into one of these easy positions, the wago from which together with his pension temporarily solves the living problem for hinl, may quite conceivably then find himself out of work, unskilled and dependent entirely upon his pension for the support of himself and his family. "Primarily tho thing to be accomplished is to teach the disabled man as speedily as posslblo to help himself and to regain his independence. "One of the first stumbling block'B in tho way of even a successful commencement lias been found to be the impression current among the returned men that they will suffer in pocket accordingly as they fit themselves more and more nearly for independence; in other words, that as the wages gained on their new occupations increased, their pensions run the risk of diminishing. Of course this Is a mistake; the soldier's and sailor's pension, once established, will not be reduced no matter how large a wage he may be able to earn. The pension must be, as it were, a freehold of which tho recipient cannot be do-prived."
