The forward position gained iu the vicinity ot lu the canal town, ia corrobor- ated in General French's report, and from this nilvance tin enemy has 'failed to drive his opponents. Along the western line, m the neighborhood of Reims, the Allies maintain the ad- vance positions gained ai Perthea. Berlin reports speak in exaggerated terras of the defeat of the Russians l along the East Prussian dorder. Pet- .rograd, however, maintains that the" there was due-purely to iglrutegic necessities, and that rear- aro not allowed to B1 through, her civilian poDulii'.lci. starve.

WE DON'T MIND Newspapers in the middle western States Are exerting themselves im- duly Lhese days to create the impres- sion among their readers that cross- ing the boundary into Canada means the' loss ot U. S. citizenship, being forcibly drafted into the Canadian army and a thousand and one other calamities into the bargain. Canada IB as free as ever, her VH.WB are just as free and her lande just as tut it is easy to see-why tales of woe are spread. The call of .Can- ada la just as strong as ever, and something T to stem the tide of immigration with dollar wheat doing the coa.ving. The following from tie TPaseca Jourual-KadJcaJ ia meant to impress L on the minds oi those who read it the terrible. developments that attend crossing ihe inleiuational line: "Joe Thiebolt, employed as a tinner at Mahler's, recently tasted ,a result of the war. Last month he was nott- fied by telegram that his father had died at Victorlanlle, 90 miles from Quebec, Canada. Fie promptly start- ed for that place, bnt at Port Huron, Mich., he was detained oy Canadian officials and informed that by a re- cent law he would not be permitted to cross the line only upon giving up his American citizenship. This he refused to to and he was to return home. Mr. Thiebolt Informs ns that -were it hot for his wife in this he would have taken a chance on crossing the border, as did his -bro- ther in St. 'Paul, who is single, but his wife was ic feeble health at tha time and he did not relish any delay in retnrning to this country." But Canada does not mind such Jibe-Is. Too many citizens of Uncle Sam" are making good here now to worry stoout otfsetting tie effect of these fairy tales. All tie good such articles will do will ha to advertise Canada tie more. Today Is the day Germany sets t work to make her paper blockai! good. Today IE tho day when In acenn laues arc- to tots closed at th dictate of ihe Kalsor. At 12.01 to- night. If a neutral ship should tmppo run foul of a German submarine and "by iiilslakfi" of course, bo sen to.the bcitom, what, would the wori say? The possibilities are frnus grave slsnlflcanco. Kere is th widely quoted comment o" ihs N Turk Herald, oil such a possibility: in the early part of there was [III a strong effort to avert civil n this country. Indeed, many per- ions hoped that the greatest of Am irlcau tragedies would be prevented TVJiether this would havo been pos ible had tliere aeen a. stronger and more forcible man Jn the presidency than Buchanan Is ibeslde the question The whole northern portion of-the nation hoped for the best, but when in Janusry the attempt TTOS made to send to Fort Sumpter provisions and supplies and the Star of the West was fired upon hy the armed forces of the secedlug states, all hope of peace vanished. The bombardment of Fort Snmpter came Inter, hut it was the attack upon the Star of the West that tore th'e bandages from northern eyes. Suppose the Germans ha their at tempt to terrorize neutral commerce going to England should destroy Am- erican ships and drown American craws; suppose without having en- ough ships to give notice of a block- ade and turn back ships the German submarines ran amuck like a mad Malay and destroyed toe ships and crews of any neutral, would Germany not then haTe to reckon with tba neutral as an enemy? She is on tne brink of her most mo- iuGstoiis war with tin United States of America. Reinforce your defences with Bovril Every one of tts is being daily attacked by the battalions of illness.
