The British also took Avesnes Les Bapaume, a suburb of the town of Bapaumel British troops also reached the wester noutskirts of Thilloy, south of Bapaume.- An unconfirmed report states that Montauban and the outskirts of Longueval also were reached by the Britis'h. British troops today captured the town of St. Leger. Hold Positions  With the French army on the Oi^fe.Aug. 36.-The Krench troops are still stoutly holding the positions they have won in this sector and lurther gains an. the plateau to the eastward in the direction of" the Chemln Des Dames would put the enemy in another dangerous position. Resistance Diminishing With the British Army in France, Aug. 25.-(Associated Press.)-Resistance of a really strong nature seems to be slightly diminishing at many places along the battle front : where the bulk ot the Germano are retiring they have left the country virtually seeded i-x\ih single machine guns in ^protected ' positions and groups of machine guns in nests. Never before, not even during the progress ot this battle, have the airplanes had such' numerous targets| for their bullets aad bombs. In some . parts on the north the .British today had reached a point only one thousand yards from the old'Hindenburg line which seems to be strongly held. If the Germans intend to make a stand there, however, , It probably will be a different story ( this time than It was previously, be I cause instantaneous fuses on shells ' have been perfected to Make It uncomfortable for the enemy in such pos itions as the Hindenburg' line offers. SheMs fitted with Instantaneous ! (uses explode immediately on the , slightest contact. They do not explode ' under ground as high explosive shells formerly did. , In the southern battle zone the niiillery fire, particularly from the big guns, is diminishing. It Is pes-Eible that further enemy counter attacks may d,evelop here and there. , The British troops display, the most extraordinary tenacity and sustained power in action. The units which Friday night waded the Ancre and later passed through Thlepval in Heavy fighting are still shoving ahead. In many places the Albert-Bapaume road had been crossed and south ot Albert the British have purfjed a r'ousiderable distance eastward. It is reported the British have reached AlammetK "Wood. Cavalry patrols at various points along the line arc operating in front ot the infantry. This is possible because the "crater country" has been passed at many points. This fact gives the cavalrj- its opportunity because it has not been used over ground seamed with trenches and shell holes. 13,000 Prisoners With the French Army iu France, Aug. 2S.-.\s the situation is today, General A{au�;in has wen a substantial victory of which there is plenty of material evidence on the flbids, besides 13,000 prisoners and three hundred cannon captured. He set outtj first to drive the Germans from the plateau of Andignfcourt, Nampiela and Carlepont by a violent thrust northward, then by a quick facing about toward the east to drive them oft the heights west of the Ailette, thus clear-ins the south bank ot the Oise and lending support to the third army's action in the hills ot Thiescourt. The program succecdsc' in every form and so rapidly that though the enemy may say he retired unhindered, some of his sj:a(f officers were obliged to flee in scanty attire. A German general was seen running froni one ot the exits of a cavern at the top of Mounb Choisy without boots or suspenders, just as French soldiers appeared at the other entrance.

In view of the fact that the hoard must have necessity secured all Information available -on this subject, as that body was dealing Vlth the question ot embargoes and jii'ices, the estimate as given by/Mr. Wood is taken by grain, and agricultural men hero as the most accurate yet made.

Kenneth R. Simpson Co. Lathbrldgs, Alta,, or FOR CALENDAR YEAR WERD4,50a Mlllbrook, Ont., Aug. 26.-Hon, N. W. Rowell, in an address to his constituents' here Saturday evoning, reviewing tlie work ot tho government during the last ton months, gave some interesting statistics regarding the reinforcements provided for the Canadian corps since the Miitary Service. Act came into force and ot tho cusiialtlos suffered during tho last year' and a half. "Our casualties for the calendar year were 74,300," said Mr. Rowell, "Knd our casualties this year, with larger forces in tho field, have becu much lower than at any time since our, forces went to the front, For the first six months they amounted to ony 14,000, whereas the casualties in the British and French arniios for the same period were very great. Oijr light casualties Itave been due to two main causes: "(a)-Our divisions, unllko those of Great Britain, Franca and Australia, always were up to strength, and with the additional auxiliary service provided, constituted such a formidable fighting unit fjiat Germany never attacked the tront held by the Canadians although they did attack on either side, and, "(b)-::;Three ot. our divisions were taken out ot the line during ' tho spring offensive, largely because they were up to strength and such an efficient force. Is pa;rt of a strategic reserve to ho used In any critical situation which might develop. "Steps liave been taken," said Mr. Rowell, "during recent months for the defence of the Atlantic sea board and Canadian shipping. One of tho most important was the esti^blish-ment of the Canadian Naval Air Service, "The government should and l|ie' government will put forth every effort In its power to combat tho German submarines oft our Atlantlu coast."
