The British have now possession of the Bapaume-Atbert road, -which will mean the fall of Bapaume very shortly. Comblea Is also being threatened. On the French front Noyon is surrounded and has practically become untenable for the enemy. The American advance on tho Vesle farther -southeast has made the retreat of the Germans from the Vesle front a necessity. Lieut, P. J. A. Andrew, who enlisted in Calgary, has been killed in action.

Hut the value of attaining the ultimate object of the war without having to Incur the cost In men, materials and money which tho fighting of it .out must entail is sufficiently great to justify the political use of the Allies' mllltarj- advantages much as the poker player with a strong hand u?es it in his game.

I niinent in Canadian hockey circles be ~ � � ' the think them -weaker in the niilitary j sphere than they actually were. The i measures adopted by the Entente to strengthen its armies in tho early part of the present year w-ere justified by the gravity of the situation. But there is some reason to think that THE PROVINCIAL CABINET CHANGES. It must be confessed that the sudden change in tho provincial cabinet announced on Saturday has been received with a certain degree of satisfaction. Hon. C. W. Cross, attorney-, outlived ! Germany was led into believing that I her superiority was much greater general, had some time,.*go his usefulness. Vc had lest the confidence of the people of this province even before the events of last fall �when ho was most active against Union Government, and was generally conceded to te tlie organizer of thej*'^'' anti-conscription forces In the west. Following the result of the general election It could not but be that he would be a source of -weakness In the provincial cabinet, and confidence In the Stewart government will therefore b6 the stronger through his removal. Premier Stewart now has an opportunity to reconstruct his cabinet, and take into it some member who Is known to be in sympathy with his policies. A member capable of a sympathetic understanding of returned soldier problems win no doubt be chosen, for the premier has announced that the great problem of the government during the next decade -will have to do with assimilating the returned soldier once more into civil lite. And that its -work with which the out-and-out politician has little sympathy. tore' he came to Boston to lead Arena hockey team in 1915-16. Capt. W. G, Amsden, of Toronto, has been killed in action.

The Duchess of Rutland offers to draw the portrait ot anyone who will contribute $500 or $-:.')0 towards the expenses of her hospital for officers at her house In Arlington street, and for the Red Cross funds. Sir Thomas White, minister of finance, announces that he has arranged with the British auihorities to purchase this year's salmon pack of British Columbia. Tho amount of money required ^^111 be eight or nine million dollars, which will be furnished by the Dominion government out of the proceeds ot the Victory loan. THE GERMAN BLUFF IS CALLED. So powerful an influence in the successful conduct ot the war Is the morale, determination or will-to-vlc tory ot both soldier and civilian that each of the combatant alliances has devoted, and will continue to devote, much energy to the task of convincing its opponents that they cannot win. From the very beginning ot the struggle there has been a large element of what is commonly known as "bluff" in the political attitudes ot the Teutonic and Entente Alliances. But statement is properly called "bluff" only when it lacks that backing In fact -which makes it Impossible ot translation into action. To bluff in this manner is doubtless the real art of playing the game of political and diplomatic poker; but there Is always the danger that the bluff may be called and the game lost. But when one of the players has the ability to translate the factors upon which the apparent bluff is based into stem realities, the game becomes faopelessly one-sided. Some element ot this pervades the war situation to-day, the Winnipeg Free Press believes. Germany has perfllatently and cleverly, since long before the war, set up a bluff based on Us military invincibility, its eco-nomlc efficiency and its scientific ability, -which has been very widely regarded as baaed in reality. For four, years the German government has maintain the bluff utiilzlDg for tho purpose those methods of frlghtfulness which have outraged tho moral sense of the civilized world. And a large measure ot success has attended Its efforts. Millions of people who, left to them-aelveo, would have instinctively condemned PruBsianIsm and resented the claims of kultur, have Jiesitnted to do 80 because ot tbo legend of in--vlnoiblllty ami etticlency .which has , Inipreased tbem almost afainst their WlUs. But now the German bluff is being than it actually was. The results of that miscalculation are now evident. Germany has used up reserve forces under the delusion, largely self-cre-but undoubtedly suggested by Allied action, that Its enemies -would be as much exhausted as itself if the results attained were indecisive. Similarly the enlarged military programme of the United States administration is probably calculated to produce a powerful effect upon political opinion in Central Europe and thus to aid the break-up of lUa Teutonic Alliance. It is not in any sense a bluff; it is a serious proposition which will be translated into fact without undue delay. But the publicity -which attends it.s advancement,, and the advertisement ot its probable effect upon the future course of the war, serve a political purpose Independent of the main end which it contemplates. In thus demonstrating their strength, and evincing their determination to make the utmost ot it, the United States are bringing to bear upon the people of 'Germany, Austria, Burgaria and Turkey a moral in-fluenco which may go far to convince them ot the hopelessness of the struggle. Were the stated intentions of the United States unsupported by convincing evidence ot their ability to carry them into effect, or were the steps necessary tor that purpose to be delayed, there would be sin element ot bluff in Uie situation. But the United States has laid Its cards on the table and has conclusively established its ability to fulfil Us mill tary programme. I " RNALISISARE TOURING FRONIS (Canadian Press Dispatch from RetJters Limited). London, Aug. 24.-A combined party ot Journalists from South Africa, Aus tralia and New Foundland is touring the war areas and tho Industrial cen tres ot Scotland. They were dined at Glasgow, when the lord provost de Glared that even if England drops out ot the war Scotland would fight un til Victorious. The long expected list of awards and mentions in dispatches by Gen oral Botha In connection with the German South East Africa campaign of 1914-15 has been published in the Ijondon Gazette and it Includes over 1000 names, with appointments to the Order of the Bath, and St. .Michael and St, George, as well as military decora tlons, A noteworthy feature Is the number ot names ot Dutch South Africans, RELY ON FOCH John T. .Musgrove, a resident of Canmore since 1S93. accidentally met his death at the No. 2 mine of the Canmore Coal Company. While superintending tho repairing of a motor pump he was struck by a runaway car and died without regaining consciousness. Elberta Ethel Hays, cashier of tho Millionaires' Club Cafe at Spokane was granted a divorce from Thomas R. Hays, known in many Canadian cities when she told Judge Hunek that her husband had threatened to throw her out of the w-indow two w-eeks after they were married at Bantf in 1915. Helen Higgins of Ottawa, formerly an employe of the estates branch ot tho department of militia, was sentenced to two years in the Mercer reformatory on each ot tour charges of forging endorsation to militia department cheques, to which she pleaded guilty. The sentences are to run concurrently. Lieut.-Co:. E. M. Mackay, of the British force.'!, court martialled some time ago for detaching soldiers under his command to act as gardeners and chauffeurs for his friends, has been dismissed from the service. Emilie Grigsby was one ot his women friends benefiting by the colonel's good nature in that she got two soldiers as gardeners fflr her place near Liondon. John B. Carruthers ot Ottawa, is giving Queen's University $5,000 to found a scholarship In science in memory of his second son. Major Kenneth Burpee Carruthers, O.C. 20th Battery, 5th Brigade, C.E.F., killed In action at Passchendaele last October. Mr. Carruthers' father, the late John Carruthers, gave the University its first science building, known as Carruthers Hall. After serving five days in the district jail on charges of disturbing the peace in connection with the demonstrations before the White House, �3 members of the National Womjn's party were released from custody. The women had been sent-suced to serve 10 to 15 days each, but the court re duced the sentence to five d^ys. The prisoners had been on a hunger s:r!ko during their confinement, and Miss Julia Emory, ot Baltimore, was said to be in a serious condition. LIEUT.-COL. C. STARNES REJOINING R.N.W.M.P. :Montreal,-Lieut,-Col. C. Starnesy who has been acting assistant pro\'ost marshal here the past two monthr will retire during the coming week and re'urn to work in the west as superin tendont ot the R.N.W.M.P. He will bs succeeded here as provost-marshal by Capt. Livingston, acting deputy provost marshal at Ottawa. Col. Starnes, who is a French-Canadian, was loaned to the provost-mar-shil's service two months ago, to take over the work here, when Major Phil McKenzie resigned. �ren more sordid tone ot political life. The second opportunity came In the winter of 1917 when people revolted at the shocking politlsal squabble! and nnder most unfavorable con-'dltions a Union government was formed. The Idea ot Union government was great and noble but was manned by men Incapable of rising to Its heights. Dr, Bland gave credit to both Sir Robert Borden and tho opposition; the latter ho considered was shabbily treated. He called down the War Times Election Act in unmistakable terms. Third Opportunity. The third opportunity is now before Canada. .While the Union govern ment has done many good things and is a more efficient government than either ot the old parlies could have supplied, it has not the confidence ot tho peoplo which will enable Canada to play a worthy part. It is still dls ruptod, suspicious and lacking leadership. Eastern Canada is full ot mil llonaires made from munitions, and the Union government' has not yet made It clear to tho peoplo of Canada that it has broken away from tho con trol of capitalists. Tribute to U. S. Dr. Bland paid a high tribute to the United States in their general attitude toward the war. saying that their vigor and devotion far surpasses that of Canada. Men there may be found giving their services free, firms have given their profits but we have given few examples of such in Canada. Dr. Bland laid special emphasis on the fact that Canada is destituto ot leadership in church and politics, men w^hoso life and character would quality them to speak high words and stir the people to the best that is in them. Since we have not such men, we should get together ourselves, for Canada is divided iir every way, with growing differences. These will become greater after the war it some effort is not made now to overcome them. Thus Canada- Is at present full of peril. This is our opportunity to put aside selfishness and profiteering and to think only ot the common good. If Canadians cannot pro-du(>G a leader, then they should get together without one. In the morning Dr. Bland spoke on the 11th Chapter of St. John from a very broad viewpoint, dwelling upon the necessity of sickness, and the need for both trustful and critical people in the church and giving a brighter hope to those who have lost their loved ones on the battle field. I 'From Oijr Own CorreSDondenH Cardston, Aug, 23,-The provisional board of directors for tho now hospital unit met on the 20th Inst. In accordance with the call made l)y the provincial board of health from whom there was a worthy representative in the person of Mr. H. A. Whiston. Ot tho directorate there were pres ent: Mayor W. E. Pitcher, for Cardston, Mr. H. E. Kelley for Spring Coulee, Mr. W. G. Smith for the southwest, and Mr. J. Johansen. ot Wooltord. for the district south tho next evening and present the resolution. This was duly held and It was decided by tho directors that for tho purpose of giving,permanency and adequate support to the hospital hero, it would bo best to accept tho offer made despite tho fact that tho aharo holders would not got back their money. The property purchased is ideally located In Lot Three (2), Block Si, "Cardston 1703 E", only a half block from" Main street and facing the Blood Ilesorvallon on tho north. It is on high ground with excellent drainage, has the water and lights and thus all the conveniences the towi/nffords. While practically isolated it Is still central, convenient and readily accessible-�n Ideal location from every point of view. The houso Is also well planned with a hall and stairway in tho centre; has twelve large rooms, including an operating room that is seldom excelled In buildings specially planned for such purpose.

Smith, of Loavitt, wai elected chairman, .apd Mr. IL K. Kell Spring Coulee, secretary. These ofil-cers aro to serve pro tem until the vote is taken In the district. Explanation was made by the organizer that each hospital could elect to purchase, rent or erect suitable accommodation for' tha patients ot each municipalitj^. There were plans made by the department for different sized hospitals, the cheapest of which cost some eighteen thousand dcllars and was a frame building as specified. Under the conditions here he thought tho wisest course would be to purchase the property ot the Cardston Hospital. Limited, but It was a matter for the local board to decide. After considerable discussion a re solution was passed recommending the purchase of the local hospital at the price ot six tbousjind five hundred dollars. The only officers of the Cardston hospital present were Mr. C. W. Burt and Dr. C. M. Fletcher, president and manager respectively. These gentlemen pointed out that the offer made would not quite give back the stockholders the money they had invested and all that was desired was to return without Interest or dividend the bare capital put Into It, However, the pro visional board would do no better, and tlie above officers stated they would call a meeting of the directors GOING TO COAST. In a most frank and stirring address last night in Wesley church Rev. Dr. Bland brought to his hearers some awakeners regarding conditions In Canada -which would cause all thinking Canadians to ponder, and oftlmes to agree. No one could doubt that Dr. Bland was actuated by the most patriotic motives in his discussion on "The Political, Social, and Religious Outlook for Canada Today." Dr. Bland thinks that Canada has three great opportunities, the first two which she has failed to grasp and the third one which Is at present before her. In the opening week of tha war Canada in her first patriotic fervor roso above tlie partisanBhip and trickery which has corrupted her, but instead of keeping at this level, she became 'filled with men trying by wholesale to coin money out of tho soldiers and the war, resulting in an Draftees reporting for duty before the expiration of the amnesty period granted are simply pouring in in Quebec. An average of IGO par day has been coming and as the ultimate date for reporting with immunity is drawing near, tho numbers rise. Such is tho influx reporting that since last Monday, all hotels and lodging houses in tho lower town and the Palais (railroad depot) districts have been filled to overflowing and extra accommodation had to be rigged up in private houses to lodge the men coming into Quebec to enlist. Ottawa published an army order, similar to one which was Issued in England, abolishing the lefthand f-iii-uto by warrant officers, n.c.o. t and men. Previously it was the rule that they must, when saluting an' officer, use the Imnd farthest remove! from that officer. In future the aalutc given by all .'a'lks 'vill bo with the right hand. Whei saluting to tho side the head will be turned towards tho per son saluted. In cases where from phy sical incapacity a rignt hand saluto Is impossiblo the salute will be given with tho loft hand. Paris, Aug. 26.-Premier Clem-enceau today telegraphed the presidents of the general councils that they could rely upon tlie government and Marshal Foch and hia magnificent staff and the allied military commanders to turn ' the preaant success of the allied arms into a complete and decisive collapse of the enenrgr.

While it is to be regretted that those who have Kelley oti bought the stock in order to help out a worthy and much needed institution, that these largo hearted citizens will not get back all their money, it Is stiH attaining tho end sought in the beginning-the establishment of a permanent and suitable place for the treatment of all cases needing the best of medical aid and nursing. Tho property it is proposed to buy Includes the land 100 x 2G9.feet (worth one thousand dollars) the twelve-room building which a recent estimate by one of the leading lumber firms places as worth $7,200 to-day, and hospital etiuipment ot aomo fifteen hundred dollars, besides. Surely the residents are geeting good value on the basis proposed of ?G,600 when tho property aggregates $9,700 as the present day worth. All the officers of the present company have given their time and their labors without recompense and have proven by their devoted service In the cause of humanity that they have been doing tlieir bit at home. Mr. D. A. Ca'mpbell with Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Ward, of Rochester, N.Y., spent a short time in Cardston this week looking over the district and noting its general conditions, Mr. Campbell is an Inspector for tiio Associated Jlortgage Inve.^tor.s .and as one of the capitalists having liirire interests in the west, Mr. Ward was duly impressed with the favorable conditions prevailing in this part cf Alberta, though It is an "off" year. The beautful temple through which they were shown by Mr. J. Y. Card, with Mr. Baxter as the superintendent in charge ot the work, was also most highly spoken of by these visitors. No city in Canada has a building ot like architecture or purpose and few indeed aro the peoplo who can vi'^it it without being deeply impressed by It^ solidity, simple beauty and chaste design, and wonderful symmetry. THE BALANCE The two great forces in this country are the farmer and the home town merchant. It is they who preserve the balance. And the balancing poles are home trade and co-operation. Their performances determine our prosperity. If outside influences are allowed to creep in, the balance is destroyed. Home Trade and Co-opoMtion are the deciding factors. With these we can **deliver the goods." � 37 7812 ;
