An ox-change, discussing the situation, says: Kn?land's determination to prevent ' any commerce from reaching Cer-Inrtirectly, bids fair, ac- dlsh ports against any commerce at all. .U would jifbbably illng Denmnrlt and ^'orwaj', both of wJilch detest Prussia, Info Uie army of Kngland, France and Russia. Sweden haa much more to lose than to gain through trying to help Germany by going to war as an ally of Germany and Austria. LETHBRID6D^lHERALD Join the Kilties today. ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR llussian successes in the Caucasus and a slight British reverse oa the western front were features of the war newsrof jesterday. Tiie big German olTensive unde'f*\vay on liie west front has waUy netted them b.;t little ground, thgugh tlie allied lines have given at one or two points. In the Caucasus the Russians continue X)i^'\r brilliant successes under the lea'.ior-ship of the Grand Uiike, yosterd-iy's reports stating that the important town of Erzeniai had tliiully been taken. Fires of incendiary orij;in. believed to have been started by enemies ol Uritain, were prevalent In the east. Two or three ships leaving U. S. poxts were found to have flres in their holds.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY- 17vl9l6 THE LETHBRIDGE-WEYBURN LINE Xews that the 'Lethbrldge-Weyburn Hue of the C. P. R. will bo completed to the last tie and the last rail this year will be welcome here. The new Hue will be ready for operation, n^st f.ill and will be used in the movement of the 1916 crop. To Lethbridge. the completion of the line means a great deal. It opens up a' great .field for Lethbridge's whole-silers hitherto not available from here. It gives a second through route from Lethbridge for the movement of coal and wheat. And when the Panama canal opens: again, and shipment of grain via the Pacific is inaugurated, it makes v. Lethbridge a funnel through which grain will pour to the coast ports. Then Lethbridge will become the grain'centre the location of ihe city justifies. However, the greatest immediate result of the completion of the line will be the opening up to railway transponation of fertile area in the vicinity of .Ma!vV.berrleo where the �farmers are now compelled to haul their srain long distances to the end ; of the line. - Tbe C. P. K. will this year fulfil its , promises to the south so far as this line la concerned. How about the . ; ,C\ N. K. and the jlarysfleld branch? j many, even cordln,? to present appearances, to drive Sweden into active assistance for the Austro-German alliance. The Swedish royal family, except the Hng-lishborn crown princess, are chiefly German in blood .ind sympathize with Germany, The old aristocracy and the army, the court and nearly all the college professors, the lawyers, the Lutheran clergy and the medical men profess pronounced Teutonic sympathies. Swedish indusliy and Swedish, commerce form the sole elements in the nation that oppose the hostility to Englahd. France and Russia. Germany has obtained almost all of its imports during the war through or from- Sweden. The Swedes have from the first rejected any restraint on their business and have reaped a golden harvest from trade with neu-tnils-and belligerents alike. British submarines now swarm throughout the Baltic and prevent Swedish supplies from reaching Ger-nian.v 'in German shipping. England also stops all craft bound for Swedish ports and confiscates whatever It con slders" destined for Germany. This procedure rouses protest tliroughout Sweden. Economic depression stares it in the face. The mercantile and industrial classes cease from opposition to the Germanic king and appear ready to consent to war with Russia and England. Such assistance would prove no unmixed advantage to Germany. Sweden as a full foe would be leas injurious to Great Britain than as an unfriendly neutral. Open war between the two would enable England to render its blockade of German harbors far more efifectlve. It would close Swe- Once more the Kaiser says "Calais or bust," And the answer will be "bust."

All a mistake 1- The Peps way is different. Peps are tablets made up of Pine extracts and medicinal essences, which when put into the mouth turn into healing vapors. These ore breathed down direct to the lungs, throat and bronchial tut>c5 - not swallowej^ fdown to the stomach, which is not ailing.. Try a 5dc. box of Peps for your cold, your cough, bronchitis or asthma. All druggists and stores or Peps Co., Toronto, will supply The problem of the fanner this year is whether to sow a small acreage well, or to plant a large area by stubbling-in and such like methods. There shouldn't be any doubt of^the answer after past experiences. Free wheat is again on the boanls at Ottawa, No matter It the bouse does reject the proposal, the western farmer will go right on asking for it. You can't convince him that he's wrong and he is the man most con cerned. Britain is about to launch a campaign among the women to obtain recruits to help piit In and harvest tlie crops. Western Canada may soon be following suit, so the girls may begin to train right now to prepare for the battle against the wheat beards and spear grass next summer. The military.authorities have at last recognized the.right to draw, recruits from a larger, ar6a than; the, prescrlb. ed one recently .available. With Red I Deer to the boundary as the new limits the ranks of the 113th should soon be full. Here's hopiug! . GETITFIRST-NOTLAST When a cold grips your system it is convincing proof that your condition is we.ikencd-remember It is risky indeed to simply trust your strength to throw it off, because neglected colds have brought more .serious sickness than any other one thing, wliile weakening cathartics andstimulaliiigsyrups are often depressing and dangerous. The one best treatment for any cold -the on.; so often relied on when others fail, is the powerful blood-nourishment in Scott's Jimulsion, wliich feeds ihe very sources of bodily strength to suppress the present cold antl generate strength to tiiwart further sickness. Get Scott's first, not last-and insist on the genuine-always free from injurious drugs. No advanced prices. Scott & Bownc.
