THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR � The American troops have non- bean Tinder fire for some time on the west .em front, and have shown their met  tie to the enemy. During the- pasf few 'daya they have raided'enemy trenches I and have beaten oft enemy attacks, ,�nd hare undergone severe enemy bom ' bardment.. roturalne it with tbeir own 'artillery: There seems to be no dpuljt now that . Germany considers herself quite at 11b-� erty to continue the invasion of RuB-sU and will do sb -with PetftDgraa as' e the objective. - . ....... � CONSIDERED A MARVELLOUS MACHINE The new Pord tractor which the Kpvemment has purchased for i>ale to ' uie fariners at coat plus freight Is In ' the judgment ot'-J. D. McGregor, of ; Brandon, one ot the greatest agrl-: cultural tools that has ever been In-'� vente(ji Henry Ford has been deveiop-] ing thlstractor for 12 years In a plant i built In t|ie mlildle of a 5,000 acre ' farm. On this farm he conducted the \ experiments. ; Last summer siw there"tractors pull-, ilng'a two furrow gang plow, others, i pulling packers, discs and harrows,-j at the game time another tractor was I running the silo filler and others were ; being used to haul corn from the field. ; To put it briefly each one ot the .' tractors was the work ordinarily done i ; by a four horse team. These Uttla tractors burir coal oil, ; are buUt of excellent material and : are quite as easy of operation as a Ford car. It was on condition that we i put them"out'In tte same way these cars, are being sold to Canada iood board at cost. Mr. McGregor said I V.omen will be able to operate them '-Wjlth ease. The whole object of the Canada .food board In securing these tractors Is increased production in 1918 and a large amount of breaking ready for 1919.  ' The tractor burns either kerosene ! or gasoline. . It Is,designed as a two-! plow machine. A fuel consumption ' of 2% gallons of kerosene per acre ';la regarded as a fair average. It Is ''1 claimed for,the tractor that It can .. plow an average ot eight acres la 10 i' hours. 'The plowing speed Is given as �.j 294 miles per hour. \|i' Conditions of sale will be for cash !j only. The' scheme of distribution still ': remains to worked out In detail. , In all probability, however, ordiers y^'win be placed through provincial de-'^^. partments of agriculture. friends that made such a step Impossible. His phllosopliy nt life was bo-llet In man. He believed that popular Calvinism was the devil's lie, T^e fascinating doctrine of tho brotherhood of man took vossesslou of _hls soul. "If once 1 wn.s able to do a small kindness tor a follow," ho said, "which Involved a bit of uun90O8SBry trouble, ho would never forget It, and would repay n�c a thousand times ovor.'^ Hankey spoke freely ot the chtiych. "The present crisis Is for the Church ot England an unprecedented opportunity for either making u fresh start or committing suicide." Ot his soldier brothers, said Major Grant, ho seemed to love the "rowgh-neoka" most. Never a man came nearer lo realization of the brotherhood ot man. Of Hankey's writing Major Grant quoted St. Leo Strachey's Judgment of the wonderful passage where Hankey describes the supremo moment to the soldier when.ho goes "oyer �ho top": "At last we 'get off.' Wo were con-I fronted with; dearth, danger and death. Arfd then they came to their own. . . . And when at last they laid their lives at the feet of the Good Shepherd, what could they do but smile?" Of this passage the editor of the Spectator said: "With all sincerity a commander of, today might parody Wolfo and declare that he would rather have written that than win a general action." "The death of Donald Hankey," said .>}ator Grant, "was worthy of his life. -'Death found bim at his post. In the grey dawn of an' October morning he �Itnelt down for a moment In silent prayer with his company, and told them: they were about to go 'over the top.* He said;- 'Now boys! If wounded, Bllkhty; If^ killed, tlie Resurrection.' 'Epigrams and patlioa In a sen-fencei-^a human .compound" of slang and the Bible, which Uacoln might have said, and been proud of. From the first ihe saw that his job was moro than to keep order; his job w-as to lead. A friend said of him: 'With all his love ot humanity he was not de-moctratic, he was'rather ^he justification of aristocracy.' When I think .-f his death I am reminded By Bunyan's Mr. Vallant-for-'Truth, who went down so fearlessly Into the dark rlver^ and Of whom Bunyan said: 'He crossed over, andall the.trnmpets sounded for �film on-tiie other side.'

An Inventor who has attracted considerable attention claims to have foutul a way to drive a battleship with- \ out fuel. But what the average householder would like to see Is an invention that can be harnessed up to tho furnace In his cellar to enable it to be operated in this way. A writer In "The Sphere" (London) says that electrically heated gloves are a part of the equipment ot a certain automobile, the current lor heating the gloves being obtained from the lighting system of the car. Furthermore, "In the aviation service ot some of t{ie allied forces electric-heating for dfll the clothing has already been adopted,"  The aviator will thns be enabled to attain .higher altitudes without inconvenience frOm thfr extreme cold ot the upper air currents. A curious sldedlght on German standards ot probity is found in a report of the case of Lieut. Splndler, who commanded the German ship Libau, which landed Casement In Ireland and was captured. Splndler gave up �4 after hearing one of my sermons than to have him tell me what a fino sermon It was," On the suggestion of the food controller, the "cash and carry syatem" will be tried out In Ottawa, A leading firm of retail grocers has undertaken to make the initial experiment,-As an inducement to shoppers to carry i their own goods, an average reduction In prices ol 7 per cent has been made. Hon, Chaa. Stewart, premier ot Alberta, In an Interview at Toronto, said'. he was ot the opinion that the plan ot the Dominion government to settle returned soldiers on the land should 'jo extended, to so far as If affects the western provinces, to provide for some means whereby unoccupied lands held by speculators should be thrown open, for returning' veterans.

Major Grant's appreciation ot Donald Hankey will be valued by the admirers created by the reading 'of his letters. Probably we would not' have known Hankey had it not been for the war. He Is gone' but he" has left behind Impressjons, and, thoughts and cha'racteV that will survive the years.' And so with Brooke and McCrae, and many others. with which Englishmen treat even unprincipled enemies Is Indicated by the decision In the above case. The prize court adjudged ,U?vt. Splndler's con-! cealed money forfeit to the crown. la magnanimously granted him, howeverv out of It, a full month's pay-�2G, The court returned in .full to two other officers of the Libau the money whl^ft' they had surrendered, as.-they, had truthfully stated the amount they po^'V sessed.

While Von Bern-storft plotted and Intrigued, Britain's ambassador upheld the high reputation of the country he represented,  PRODUCTS OF THE WAR Tho war has revealed some great characters-and the pity of it Is the war ! has taken many, of the best of 'them as Its victims. True, though they are d^d, they leave monuments behind jthW.' 'Rupert Brooke Is gone, but bis � verse will live forever. John McCrao, the Canadian officer, rests in a grave m Flanders, but hla little poem "In Flanders Fields" will not die. Then there was Donald Hankey "The Stu-' dent In Arms," His letters from the ecene of war were remarkable for their high and noble thoughts. To ' those ot ub, who have read Hankey's books, a sketch ot his career by Major W. L. Grant, the new principal ot ' Upper Canada College, Toronto, is most Inspiring. Hankey was all that bis laftters revealed. Major Grant kiiew hlra' Ihtlmately. lU^aJor Grant told of the school days of-Hankey, at Rugby, and afterward !;�t Oxford. Hankey entered the Woolwich Royal Military Academy straight from Rugby before he was seventeen. His ^experiences there were unfortunate and uncongenial. Major Grant quoted Hankey's o-�'n record: "Oh, the misery of those terms at Woolwich! 1 hated the work, the drill, the gym, and even the riding school. - 1 hated the officers, and, above all, 1 hated the spirit of the plf 13." Hankey went down to the' slums ot Be'fmondsey and made the best ot IrlendB ot Bill and Jim, His At the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' convention it was alleged that a young .farmer in the Luseland district who was killed at the front willed two ouatter sections to bis brothers free of all enoumbrantfes," "A lawyer working with another lawyer In Winnipeg was handling the tranater... and , the fees had already risen to $700, If this statement Is correct these lawyers should lose their gowns; and a oam paign for law reform ahonid be*^ undertaken.
