Unrest CT>5wa-(n the Oornian nrniy. Its .damaged morale continues to decay. But the Fretnch array is in fino fettle and aFfrre^t'stvo eftictcncy. The British army is strouRcr than over, ffroatjy better In material and burning to avenRe last sprinR's reverses. It Is credited by the French tlieni-selves with its wonderful victories in those new batlle.t of the Somme, nnd comes back with renewed onerRy nnd determination and with scientific mastery of the new methods ot fiirht-ing. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The British aro now fighting along the old Hlndenburg lino which the Germans occupied before (heir spring drive this year. At one or two points tho British have even penetrated be-yoad this line, jvhich means that the Germans are falling behind their firmer 'positions. Tho British have en tered Bapaume, wklch they gave up last spring, and are pressing their offensive on all sides of this town which Is only a matter of twenty miles from Oambrai, the great German headquarters. On the French front the outskirts of Roj-e have been reached. In Russia the Boshe%iki forces have suffered a reverse from the Czechs. In Abania the Italians have Inflicted a defeat on tho Austrian forces. PICKED UP IN ^ PASSING^ THE NtW ORDER RESPECTING AUTOMOBILES. After the first of the coming year tho manufacture of pleasure cars will be greatly curtailed, and automobile PREMIER STEWARTS DECISION LAUDED. Newspaper supporters ot the Stewart government evidently have no fault to find with tha premier's cabinet reorganization. Tho Calgary Al-bertan views It this way: Premier Stewart has strengthened the government by replacing C. W. Cross with A. G. MacKay. The presence ot Jlr. Cross In the carbinet for the last seven years has occasioned a lack of harmony iaside the government which was a scandal. During the premiership of Mr. Sifton. it was quite well known that his position was more or less nominal, and that, while he enjoyed the outward presligo ot his appointment, the more important affairs of his office were not left to his discretion, and legislation nominally coming from* his department was initiated almost invariably by tho premier. He forced himself into the government, but he did not succeed in he-coming a factor in the Sifton administration or in commanding tlie confidence of his, leader or his colleagues. Although Mr. Cross was not unsympathetic with progressive lesislalion, he was n careless administrator, with a party ideal out of keeping with the times. His career opened promisingly in dealers are beginning to worry over the ontlook. But the New York World, tjjjg x'.rovlnce. but he lost his eminence believes there is nothing to worry) in the A. & G. W. affair, which, al- about, that while it is true the dealers at least have little to fear. It tho production ot new pleasure cars Is cut ott tb.ay will atUl have a limitless number ot aecoi^d/iand cars to trade In. Second-hand cars, with the greater (lemantl for them fn default ot new cars, are clearly destined to enjoy a new status. There Is no Indicated occasion for dealers to despair in the face of this outlook. GREATER PRODUCTION MEANS BETTER FARMING METHODS, TOO A realdent of the city brings back word from, the northwestern Pacific cojiBt .tkat agricultural experts there belleTe the campaign for greater produetioa, which Has - rasuited in poor farming matbods in many cases, should be abandoned where It results in '�cropping land which cannot . properly fce prepared fcir seeding. .The contention ot these men is good, and Sontkem Alberta's ezper-lenee "this year provea it. We "find that well-prepared summer-fallow this year ia ppodiieing a very fair return. Crop sown on stubble land or spring plowing la producing -very little. Much of tbl* land'would ordinarily have been auminerfallbwed this year and would hay*.1>Mn prepared to. prodnca a mui^li. (reater. yield next, year than will now '^e' possible. 'AiU ^baae tit tha greater production campaign In Western Canada �lidiiJd recelre consideration. Greater pi^pdHctlon really means better farming metliods as mach as it means larger acreage nirter.crpp. That ii the" only plan that will win year after yiear. Sowing wheat in poorly prepared ^:otlnd ia just the aame as an army at^aq^,which hasn't been carefully worked out and prepared for-It may win out, but the element of luck entering into it is'too great'^to be de-paaded vpon. BACK TO GERMANY BEFORC THE SNOW FLIES. . TViU tha Hun armies In France and BalglUffl b� iiiMhed back y> the Rhine before the anow flies? ; That ia a Question no one can answer, Perbaps Generalissimo Focb oould (tl� TIB the beat answer. Just now, Jiewever, he is busy demonstrating that It can be done, but whether the operation can be completed be-foro the' snow ffleg or not remains to be aeen. 1^0 reported fortification ot posl-tlona along the Meuse in Belgium, !)0 miles east ot^Bapaii^e, would seem to 'betray the German fear that the hope ezpreiseii by tiie Allies may be fuUllled.

Some spring wheat fields are also harvested. Mr. M. C. Taylor, of Wooftord, reporting his prelude whejit all cut. Havve.sting wilt be general next week throughout the whole district and will be completed in a fortnight. � From present indications' fall wheat will run from twenty to twenty-five bushels on Eummc-r fallow, spring wheat will run from twenty to Jthlrty bush els, while on the fall and spring plowed lands yields will run from five to fliieen bushels according to locality and the kind of work done. J.,ato rown fields are improving and -will make more feed than estimated a. month back. MILK RIVER. y.Iilk River, Aug. 26.-Harvesting here is nearly over and many are busy threshing, the average yield of wheat is around ten bushels to acre. Lee Walker, who has best crops in the district expects to run twenty to twenty-fivo bushels" to' the acre. The Stover ranch is threshing just now; they are getting a very fine grudei of marquis wheat though the yield is scarcely up to average. One or two headers are In use in the district, Mr. B. D. Holzie, one of our ambitious younger farmers, is very pleased with the work done by his machine. CHAMPION. Champion. Aug. 26.-^Harvest in the Champion district is In full swing. 90 per cent, of the cutting is now completed. Threshing Is expected to commence this iveek. There will be three or four outfits operating in the district. The stubble crop Is pracUc ally a failure. 25 per cent, will aet be cut at all, the balance will run 3 to 5 bushels to the acr�..The summer-fallow and now grbund is much better than expected. The average yI.eM throughout the whole district will run about 15 to 18 bushels ta the; acre. Our~farmerB are all bopeful and: anticipule preparing - overy possi'ole! acre ot land this fall ready for nett spring. TABER. Tabor, Aug. 26.-Harvesting is well along in the Taber district. The average yield on summerfallow Is about 10 bushels per acre. On spring and, fall plowing there is practically nothing The grain that is being threshed is plurap and hard and Is ranking mostly as number one bard. Most of the big tlireshing outilts will riot pull out this year. The flax crop Is very light, almost nil. , But we are not dishaartenefl. We shall continue to marry and give In marriage to build anH plow and sow. Soil that in a drought will yield 10 bushels per acre ot plump A 1 grain is good tor 50 bushels in a normal year-.such as wo expect to �ee next season-and if we had -nothing at aJl the succ.esa of our men at the front is antidote for nil blues.' '-' - MAGRATH. Magrath, Aug 2C.-^About 75 per cent, of cutting is completed in this district. Summerfallowed land will yield on an average of 16 bushels per acre.
