NO 1917 RACING CHAMPIONSHIP New York.-The contest board of the American Automobile association has decided against holding the 1917 racing championship on account of tho few speedways that will be active.

HIRAM JOHNSON, JR., MUST GO San Franeinco," Aug. 22. - Hiram Johnson, Jr., son of United States Senator Hiram \V. Johnson, was denied exemption by a selective draft exemption board here today, asked on grounds of his wife's dependence. Johnson's father-in-law offered to support his daughter for the duration of the war, it was said. Ten yoars ago men did not fly. The use of the air for any purpose save for precarious observation In u drifting balloon was forbidden them. Experiments liad already led certain pioneers to hope that (light would bo possible. Certain very short experimental distances had even been covered. But flight as a habit, as part of our civilization, was not only unknown but unlookcd for. Today the great war, which will change nil our conditions, and has closed all our past, is dominated by the fact that men can lly by thousands in nearly any weather, at almost any height that, will support life, for hundreds of miles at a stretch and for hours without lauding. It i3 in the main, this revolution which has changed ono point after another in war until the' whole art. of a campaign lias been transformed. Tho success of distant, artillery against restricted permanent fortifications, complete strategical observation, the breaking down of field works by exactly marked Intensive fire and twenty minor tilings depend tlrcly upon the conquest of the air. This truth, the truth that modern war for its now great changos pivots upon flying, will have consequences innumerable. It has already produced a vastly numerous new arm in every service. It has added that arm to the fleet as well as to the land forces of every power. It will of necessity create a defensive aerial fleet throughout periods of peace. It will be the leading and most rapidly progressing military thing of the near future. It demands youth and absorbs the attention of all those who will within a generation be of most influence in our national life. The stupendous change has not only transformed war. It has also In part -and must much more In the future -transformed civilian life. The great war came at a moment when this long aspect of flying was far from developed, and when the risks and expenses of the first stages were absorbed at once by military necessity.-But with the war over, the civilian aspect j, will reappear, and the new art will be thrust into the lives of everyone. It will come to form part of our experience as the railway has come to form part of it, the steamship, and the telegraph.-"Flying.'' London, Aug. 23.-The first detailed account of the disastrous fire at Salonika last Sunday Is contained In a Renter dispatch from that city, which says fiO.OOO persons are homeless and that property loss is enormous.

If the editorial blue pencil, or whatever | he uses to blot out matter which should to his mind not appear, loaves this-paragraph in, some will have a smile. Among the features staged on the (iraml View" fnv.m was a stooklng match between the various business men of Lethbridge. The newspaper men were among those who were asked to do their share for the empire and to help on the .hard working farm- er. The worthy scribe from the Herald looked pretty bad at the Idea, but showed a willingness, but alas the scribe from the Telegram most em-, phatlcally declined. His statement being that he was a newspaper man and not a farmer. AVe guess he was afraid of getting wet. .So the great event did not come off and the people of this burg and other places both on and off the map are still. in the dark as to who was the best man.' We should like to make arrangements if both the scribes are willing to have a private test which- will only be viewed by a few of those most- interested. Tho work of digging out the basement of the new church, which was commenced last week is now nearly finished and it is hoped that, soon the carpenters will be on the job. . During the week land sales have been made through J. Harris & Co., who have sold a half section belonging to W. Clarke' "to ' J. Thompson, and the Welch half Messrs, Betzman and Renner. A quarter section has also been sold belonging to O. Olsen who lives in the States to It. Balnes, a local farmer. P. J. Barry ?i;is, .recently, opened a horso training school here and so far has had great success. ,Most of the farmers of the district and a lot of the men nro taking; lessons in the gentle art ot breaking horsed and some fine slghl.s have been seen at nights on the farms. , As wo have some bud horses In the neighborhood the opportuntl y , was taken. of baying them br'oko anil In some cases Mr. Harry has hud his work cut: out. So pleased, however, have those been who have taken the lessons that be Is receiving, a host of testimonials' of the good work, that lie. la doing. It pays in some districts to have a man like the profossm- us June. Retail prices for-potatoes were lower, but there were/ also decreases In eggs, butter, cheese, bread and flour, although eggs later began to rise. Coal averaged slightly lower, but wood was upwards. Some advances In rent also occurred.
