Buchanan ..Managing Director John Torrancs Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE' OF THE WAR The French and British retreat into breece hts 'ueen carried out with great .skill and comparatively slight loss. The troops are retreating to Sa'.oniM. Just ivhat the Bulgarian role will now be in the1 struggle is uncertain. Her amv Mtions so far as the Brians are con- cerned, lave been, practically accom- plished, and it is not likely she incur the enmity of Greece by cross- ing her borders in pursuit of the allies. A German plan to attack Egypt is -developing and large British rein- forcements are being sent there' to any such attack. A big naval battle is said to be 5Qing on in the North Sea, heavy firing having been heard oil the coast 'of Holland. In the German Reichstag, stormy sessions are still the order over the. 'matter of peace. The government steadily refuses to take the repre- sentatives of the common people into their confidence .as to their negotia- tions; and refuse also to aVJow an in- vestigation of the real causes of the great war, WISE THING TO PAY YOUR TAXES The financial situation of Eefh- bridge is at .present a rather more desirable one than that of most west- ern cities. But tliis position cannot long be maintained if outstanding taxes are not paid as fast as possible.

That was the beginning of the end. The election which had- been nrmng. ed and announced to take place last April was called oft and now, after many months, the ministry !s recon- structed with Bowser, the smooth man of the Mclirlde ministry, at the head. New blood is Infused into the cabinet with the hope that power can be retained when an election takes place. It is hardly likely that tho electors of the mountain province will be fooled iu tills way. Bowser is clover but he is not any improve- ment, on Sir Richard McBride so far as public ideals are concerned. His association with the Dominion Trust jffair is sufficient to cause the 'people to mistrust him. One of the new min- sters, Mr. jFlurnmerfelt of Victoria, who is well known iu Alberta, having been connected with the International Collieries at Colcman and the Royal Collieries at Lethbridge, is jinques- ipnaMy a distinct addition to the ;overnment.

Pour ovtr hot buttere'd toast and serve nt once. 1 or 2 egg yolks may be added before serving. The egg makes it richer and prevents the cheese hardening so quickly. THE SERBIAN SITUATION serves punishment for its maladminis- in British Columbia, and the punishment will be meted out when- ever election is hfc'id. Public opin- ion in the Pacific province is aroused and an attempt at cleaning the decks to" an_.eiection will not prevent electors-'" a righteous judgment. Tie 3, C. government has beeu corrupt from top to bottom. It "has 'dealt wiffi the great resources not n- the interests of the whole people, but for the enrichment of( the party avorites. .The administration of jus- tice has been" a joke.
