THE PROGRESS OFTHEiWAR.''  r--:-.'l--r,rrT (The British troops have recaptured the town of Albert end are pushing along the Arras-Bapautne railiray; wblch they have succeeded In cut-ttog. The recapture of Bapaume'noTr clem� certain, which -wlU prove a disaster' at the present stage for the , Oermanf. The French hare crossed the val-i ley of the Ailette River and are rap-' Idly throwing their lines about the , city of Noyon which is as good as lost to the Germans now. Over the entire western front the Germans are.kept on the retreat here and there the allied attacks driving ag far as several miles into the German lines. - of machine guns end has proven to the Geritfans that thefr hope of a vie, torlous peace is as ashos In tholrj mouths. It has been a wonderful achievement. And it has been nil the more wonderful in view of the fact that, on March 31 when the Germans launched their long-heralded spring offensive they outnumherod the allied troops on the west three to two. For four months with this weight of numbers behind thorn, the Germans wereJ able to hammer thoir way to within 46 milA of Paris. Then suddenly the tide turned .and since then it has been rolling the Huns back with a steady, but resistless pressure. Why this miraculous chango all in one month? Let us examine the two offensives for the reason. When Hlnrtenburg laimched his offensive itf March he had just one object. There were two objectives, Paris and the Channel ports, but these w^ero minor. His wain object -n-as to smash the British and French armies on the-west', a big task-Bt-nTtytlme, but to add to the difficulty of the task ho had to .work against time. His only hope was to accomplish his PICKED UP % PASSINGTor^^'M. Percy Doeth. of Hamilton, Ont., has been appointed new secretary of the Rogina Y.M.C.A. Capt. J. M. C. Carson. iM.C, son of Major-Oonoral Sir John W. Carson, of Montreal, was killed in action. As the result of injuries received In a motorcycle motor truck accident some weeks ago, James Wliltely, un employe of the city of Calgary, succumbed to his Injuries. Lieut.

Dispatches the other day told of .more than 10,000 Canadian casnalUes 'in the new drive." It' looks like a high price, bat con-"Bjlering the remarkable victory gain-ad by tbe Canadians in their advance Ohaiiiaea.seii�8t reatinc placa, wttlJber m�riied:'iiy & crois in PIcardy. i 7%pui;lr^t:.'te^sid to; cpstfpplata'-tttat onJ^'W'a^h ��oi*lflC6S can liberty he in'alStaineil'In the twentieth century. The relatives of the boys must know that they fought nobly and died bravely as befits true Canadlahs.To those relatives the message of Sir Arthur Currie must be' cheering, that thanks to the action of the Canadian .government reinforcements are^ready to fill up the gaps. Thus is assurance given that the sacrifice of the boys who have fallen will not be in vain. The C.inada Food Board ha.'? investigated reports of wasted fruit in the . . really kfil^hts. .They have been glyen ykrU bus knightly insignia, .but they could never''become .reU. knights or "sirs" Without renouncing, their allegiance to tbe United States. There is no danger ^for tbe time being, of titles of nobility, setting a foothold In this coun-tr^ - are being thrown, away. In contrast with Hindenburg's method-of .frontal attack* to gain'time, Foch, when he comes to a iard nut to crack, goes around'it. The met:hod'^may be "slower, but- It is - etfoctlve - and - it saves man power-The allies are Inching along i�.the.Pica'rdy;dlBfrlct tovr'ards Bap-aume,. outflanking strategic centres, ani now largo'/results'sepm' to te near. When: the; Germans "get all set to check the drive in one sector we hear of a new drive being launched 50 miles away. This forces the Germans to make a new disposition of their troops. Six German armies have been battered by this method. Now Foch Is starting on the seventh. It would not be surprising if tbe allies carried these tactics out along the whole front from Switzerland to tho sea. By this method provided Foch can dispose of his ever-Increasing re serves at strategic points behind the line, he can "run the Germans ragged" to use a slang expression. And the Germans have no effective means ot preventing It. 'What few reserves they have .left no more than fill in the gaps caused.'by casualties and prisoners taken,'so that the outlook cannot but be dark for the German horde? And that is the contrast between the two offensives. One was a race by the Germans against time. And they lost. The allied offensive is slow but sure attrition of the German effectives. And here, too, the enemy will lose. It is a losing game all round for the Kaiser and his cohorts, and tlie opinion of Premier Clemen ceau. The French Tiger, that the war will end In 1919 seems In a fair way to being realized. Ten ships with a dead weight tonnage of 51,700 tons were added to the American merchant marine . in the week ended August 15. Seven ot the ships were steel and threa^ wood. Eight steel vessels and two wooden ships, toUl tonnage 53,85;- were launched during the week. The Earl ot Jlintor son ot the for mer governor-general of. Canada of that name, is expected to come to Canada very shortly asaide de camp to the Duke of Devonshire, 'the present governor of tho Dominion. Lord Minto, will. It Is understood,'succeed Capt. Bulkeley Johnson, whclias held the office ot aide de camp for some time and who has just left Canada for England. The American army In France is amply supplied with bread ra^de ot all-wheat flour, and the dally ration of 18 ounces of flour for bread is so overabundant that a reduction to 16 ounces is under consideration. Soldiers in the United States consume ""Victory" bread, with the prescribed amount of substitutes for wheat floun Not until they get to France .are they allowed :-wheat bread. � Dr. W. S.

C.'H. Baker, which was offered on account ot the illhealth of his family. It was fofmal-ly. agreed after frank, discussion to grant'M'r. BaUer a years leave of' absence. This was acceptable to Mr, Baker conditionally to the effect that the church reserve the right to invite another pastor at any time, should they consider it to the best interests ot the church. Mr. Baker will return to the Okanagan valley to teach tjhe manual arts in the Penticton and Sum-merland schools for tho coming school year. ^le hopes to leave next week to be there for tho opening ot the term. Fred Bryant, one-time sporting writer on the Morning Albcrtnn. and former star hurler for tho Calgary .\thlotlca and star basketball player, hna been woundcd^in action. Prof. Nicolai, a German pnciflct who was sentenced to tour months' imprisonment in Germany for writing a paciflst book on the "psychology ot tho war," escaped Into Denmark by airplane. Simon Weil, of Lexington, Kentucky, who ahready has large holdings in the Alrdrio district, added to these by purchasing for $35,000 cash from Jirah S. McCormIck his farm and stock. Edward C. Edwards, an International Bible worker ot 'Victoria, on being convicted of having copies of "The Un flnished Mystery" In his possession,' was fined $1,000 or six months in jail, He went to jail. Recent word received in Calgary is to the effect that Mr. Norman Rankin who went overseas some time ago, is now a sergeant In the Engineers In France. Mj". Rankin was formerly a captain in the 191st-Battalion and reverted to the ranks to go across. Inquiries ot the men at the Moose Jaw post office elicited the statement that there is no. foundation that the postiSs are dissatisfied with the recom mendations which.have been made by the sub-committee ot the privy couu' cil and there is .no likelihood ot any further trouble.
