Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS PF THE WAR Chancellor Hollwet/s retirement In Germany, forced oot by the Crown Prince, la proof that tho reactionaries bare triumphed in the meanttmo nnd that militarism will have greater tray than ever. Some men sco in 'hta more ot bringing in the Crown Prince, an intention on the Kaiser's part to abdicate, and an endeavor to �addle the Crown Prince "with the responsibility ot pulling; Germany out of the mess of war from which she oan a>ewr emerge victorious. The great interest In the war Is fence more transferred from the west Is the east trout, where ft Is stated the entire front from Riga to Rumania, is one long line of battle. The Germans {tare already commenced the withdrawal of troops from the -western front to stem the Russian advance, hitherto unsuccessfully met. This ad-ranoe I* assuming alarming' proportions and the Teutons are now coasting every effort to meet It. BOULEVARD* AM IN MEED OF ATTENTION. We do not mention it in the belief that the city commissioners have not noticed the fact, but In the hope that they can devise some means for securing more water fox the boulevards In this dry season. In many parts ot the city the boulevards are well nigh ruined for the season. Only special care for a week or two will bring them through. The explanation ot the commissioners is that the pumping plant is working almost to capacity for other needs, nnd that . if the boulevards were given all tho water they need, the pressure in the water mains would be Inadequate. This may be true, but we hope that something can be done to remedy the situation. More boulevards could be watered at night. It Is understood that labor Is short and that men cannot be secured to look after the work. But cannot some special effort be made along this line? The people of Lethbridge appreciate their boulevard system, and we are �ure that they woutd not criticize a little extr* expense to meet the �n-msual conditions. heartily behind the scheme advanced by the fair association of Magrath, aided by the Raymond association, to hold a Stampede, here next month for tho purpose of putting tbe Ma/jrnth Agricultural society on Its foot flnan-1 dally. Lethbrldgo cannot do too much for these two towns. They look nowhere elro In their business relations. Lethbridgo is "our rity" to them, nnd by aiding them in (heir Stampede scheme wo help to couiont tholr friendship. The plan has another phase: It Bocms assured that the proposal to hold a district fair next year will be successful. Iu counection with the big exhibition it Is proposed to make a Stampede take tho plaro of many of fhe high-priced vaudeville attractions which in termor years wore booked for the amusement of tho crowd. If the peoplo of Lcthbridpe and the south country can make a success ot tho Stampede here next week, they witl do much to perfect tho machinery for the attractions next year. There Is a certain amount of brutality connected with some Stampede events which does not appeal to many people. That feature will be eliminated as much as possible. But the real, old wild west stuff has a strong appeal to most people still. It is a good thing; to keep it alive. Calgary, which has always paid high for vaudeville attractions for its fair, has about decided that it will attempt something In the way of ft Stampede In connection with its fair next year. Lethbridge- has already made that decision and the practice we will get next month will come in handy. Lethbridge is out to do its share to make the event tho success of the city's history. TVhile oar hotel accommodations are not so extensive ns we would like, we can all remember how we cared for the monster dry farming congress crowd in 1912. TVs can do better now if we go about it. And if we do our share we are sure that the people of Magrath and Raymond will do theirs. Tew York city.

SMITH, Auctioneer ran THE AMALGAMATED There is no use in denying that many parts of Southern Alberta are In need of rain and that this is mighty j hot weather. But there aro more i parts ot the south where tho crops are making wonderful growth, so that \ the day of the calamity howler is not yet at hand. FAIR PLAN. Nothing seems surer titan that t>thbrldge, Raymond and Magrath fw-m join 'together next, year in a mon-ater combined fair. Nothing ehoald be more plesalog. In this plan, Lethbridge has no Idea jsrhatever of "hogging" �h& fab- business. Our one idea is to have a fair In Lethbridge that will be of some benefit to the farmers ot Southern Alberta. That is the first aim of a fair. Lethbridge might hold a good fair without the aid of the outside towns. But with the buildings we Jiavo and with our grounds, we can Bold an Imm'easureably better fair with their co-operation. We can hold It fair here that wfll bo an education to our farmers, who, now that prosperity has set in, have the money to buy livestock and engage in the most approved methods of farming. We can hold a fair that will do credit to Southern Alberta, and it will have to be a good one to do that. It takes a crowd to make a fair a euccess. There murt be popular Interest. If an amalgamation of Interests is secured, so that Magrath and Raymond are just as much interested In tho buccoss of the event as we are, just so much surer are we of success. Secretary McNicol of the local fair board, tried hard four years ago to make the amalgamation scheme a success. The time was not ripe then. We still thought that tho email talrn and many ot them were the best. We bave found out differently. Financial distress has too many times been tho result. With this experience and the tart we have mad* now towards a district fair representative ot South rn Alberta there should he no other thought hut success. L*t us work to �btct end. This year Is going to gire many more concrete example** ot the benefits of good farming. The stubble crop was a gamble from the first and > the farmer who staked his all on It > need not* be disappointed if he loses, i Summerfallow is just as important ae it was in 1914 when everybody was, preaching it There seems to he some needless worrying about crop conditions, j While the district as a whole is not \ as good as last year, nevertheless \ th^re will he far from a total crop j failure. In many parts the outlook is; | Just as good as it was last year at i this time. Rain for a week would be welcome of course, but there is no' room tor the calamity howler for somo time yat Magrath and Raymond are just as much interested in tho city of Leth-hrUge aa we are. That's the spirit ws like-to see. But let the people of Lethbridge remember that we should be greatly Interested in Magrath and Raymond and the other towns of the district. They are our customerH, and ma such are entitled to our utmost oourtesy. [EVERYONE OCT BEHIND, pTHt STAMPEDE. ^ jLatkbridga has done well to fall so STILL 8AME MASTERS Porta, July 18.-The Paris prws hallH the resignation ot Dr. Von Both-mann-HollweK from the German chancellorship with varying degrees of sat-isf&ctlon. Somo of the comment Is in a jubilant tone, while other editors treat the event wyberly, All are agreed that It indicates a crista in Germany ot unprecedents importance. Tho phrase "scrap of paper" fre-quaiitly crops out la the comment and some of the journals trace the chancellor^ downfall to that early-ln-the-war utterance of his. Tho Petit Parisian saysr "Though the chancellor changes, tho German masters remain tho same. It is they who desired the war, to satisfy their appetite for universal domination."
