THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Tio British have entered and fiass-'ed the village of Combles, and tho Pronth are movlnj: ftp on Poronne, �whoso tall is uow imminent. Tlie French and American troops are now engaged in a vigorous offensive northeast of SoisPons. to keep jiace vrlUi the allied advance along tho Somnie. Tha progress of fho whcle offensive la most satisfactory, and the anticipation is now that Cambral can b� taken this fall -nlthout difficulty. HOW U. S. HANDLES THE ALIEN ENEMV STRIKER. Down in tlie United States thev have an effective way of dealing with the alien enemy citizen. It he behaves himself and works he is given a.Jarge amount of freedom. But if he refuses to work and throws down his tools tying up important prouuctlon by atriking, the government takes him in hand, sends him down to big government reclamation works in Florida and puts him on soldier's pay. '"Tl'e pass^he suggestion along to Hon. Thos. Crothers. Its ^ Introducing Into Canada -wuolld be a thousand times more effective than the vacillating measures he has used In a number ol instances we could cite. multiples. When-a dealer found it necessary to chango more than five cen'ts he usually Jumped^thp price to "a dime. Pennies were lisetiii for stamps, but U>e avern'so merchant scarcely deigned to recognlzo tliat such a coin existed. The natural re-.lult was that the o�tlt earned a reputation wholly undeserved. Conditions brought about by the war are changing all this. Increased prices for common, low-priced commodities are forcing rotnller.s and purchB--:,--.ji into n new attitude toward tho cent. An article that formerly -sold for 10 cenf.s will sell morn readily at 17 cents, sny. than �0 cents. And llie public finds it InrreKsinply ccoJiom-ical to ^introntzo those who sliow a speaking acquiiintance with tho one-cent piece. It is time to abandon, not for tho period of the war alone, but for all' time, the superstition that somo particular virtue lies in the numhor five as It applies to American coiiinge. A somewhat general advance in prices ot common articles is necessary, pto-bal^v; but niorel.v because an article can no longer be sold for live cent,'' is no proof that it must go to 10 cents.
