July 2G.-(2 p.m.) - (Assoclntod Press.)-The Franco-Am-. erlcan iroopa on the front narthenst of Cliateau-Th lorry, moveil thoir linos farther forward today. The allies along tlie front to the oast liko-ts'lse made progrese at ^places, the Americans at one point attaining an objectlvo a kilometre distant. Clinging (lesperntely to tAo hills and the woods, the Qormans are iislng their machine guns, their nrtlllory and their nlr forces and quantities of gas in an effort to hamper the advance. Crown Prince Too Confident. With the French Army in Prance, July 2(5.-(Associated Press.)-A retrospective glance at the entire battle since the Germans tried to cross the Marne in their great effort to broal'. up the Frencli armies shows that the crown prince, thinking the French oxhauated by the terrific defensive battles which they had fought during March, April, May and June, had decided to launch a fresh offensive. He was so confident of success that he did not endeavor to hide his prepiaratlons. When Oenorials Von Einem, Von Miidra, Von Boelim and Von Ebon started the attack on the night of July 14 they expected to overcome all resistance and easily capture Montalrall, Epernay and Chalons.  General Potain, however, had jirepared another plan which was pre-eenlod to Generalissimo Foch on July 12, and which was approved the following day. The idea was to abandon advanced posts and to hold the principal line of resistance with only the aliaolutely essential forces and In the meantime prepare to spring a counter offensive on the Gorman flank when the enemy troops' were fully engaged In the battle.

Admiision 50 cents any seat in the theatre. was favored by strong old poslliona, but to the westward of that city, the problem was compllcatod bccauac the organization of the ground held by the French had not been completed. Upset Their Plans. When the battle oponefl, however, and the opposition plans wore put to the test, tliat of General Potain proved itself superior to the others. The French, Americans, nritish and Italians co-operated in a whole-hearted way and completely upset the crown prince's project. The result was the utter defeat and discomfiture of German armies which were obliged to employ many divisions which had been reserved for later bIow;s. The allied counter ottonslve was remarkably well prepared and executed. It struck at the right place and at the proper time. The Germans are now very anxious regardirR the positions of their great army between the Aisno and the Marne. It is for this reason they are fighting with dsaperatlon. The present moment for them is one of the most critical of the war, since the allies possess the initiative and the rapidly increasing armies enable them to undertake operations which would otherwise be impossible. The righting will continue to be very severe, as the ground wlilch the Germans occupy Is very suitable for a defensive battle, but their resistance la costing thorp dearly. Thoir difficulties are being augmented every day and it is probable they will be compelled to think hard before starting auy other offensive action even if its object Is only to relieve the situation. Little Change With the American Army on the Aisne-Marne Front, July 26.-(Associated Press.)-There is little change In the operations on the southern arc of the salient south of Soissons. To the west, Oulcy-Le-Chateau has been taken. Farther south the Germans have been driven out of the positions they had taken on the north bank of the Marne. - The French and American troops are advancing farther in the I^a Fere Forest. The (lermans keep up a heavy tire, especially from their heavy guns, gainst the French and American, but their efforts are Recover All Ground With the French Army in France. July 2G.-To the east of Rhoims. the French under General Gourard, have recovered virtually the entire line of advanced positions 'which they aban doned when the Germans made their first onslaught on the night of July 14. The famous Main De Massiges, which marked the eastern extremity of the German offensive line is again in allied posaession. Everywhere this region is coverod with German bodies which the enemy has been unable to bury since he suffered such terrible losses from the allied artillery when he was concentrating for his assault on the French lines. Two Hun Attacks With The British Army in Franco, July 26.-(By the Associated Press) -Tho Germans alnco last cvonlns have attacked In coiisldorablo strength In two places along the Ilrlllsli line but succr.odcd in accomplishing nothing at either.

Calgary, July 20.-A special to the Calgary Canadian from Ottawa says A ^cabinet council was called for noon today to specially consider the situation arising out of the refusal of the postmen of Western cities to return to work and ucccpt the proposal emanating from the recent conference held In Ottawa. Tlio government will not appoint a coiuilintion board. In fact the government in llie first place takes the grounds that there is nothing to conclliato or arbitrate about, and, in the ^second place, that the appointment of a board would be an abdication of tho powers and functions of the goveninipnt. 'Wo are not In tho position ot a company dealing with Its employes and desiring to keep wages down to the absolute minimum,' said Hou. C. J. Doherty. 'Wo are hero to see to 11 that all members of public serviL'e are treated fairly and justly. We ourselves are tho conciliation board in the matter. It Is for us lo hear demands and to arbitrate as to their merits.' "Apart from that it is contended! that there is really no application to ^ be heard proposing a minimum of' $1000 and a maximum ot ?1400. They afterwards, liowever, agreed that for the present the bonus system, would sufllce. it is pointed out hprc that tho eastern men, to whom the bonus system is not so satisfactory as it stands as the granting of maximum and minimum would be, are back at work while the western men to whom the bonus system is quite as good.,are out. 'In the cast the present system is as follows: Minimum .?62G, plus ?100 bonus In 1917, plus $150 in 1018, or a total of $870. The maximum is ?a3G, plus two bonusos amounting to $250 or a total ot ?1,189. This it will be seen, is short ot the original demand. In the west the minlmuin is ?C26, plus flSO extra allowance on account of higher cost of living in the west, plus flOO bonus in 1917, plus $150 In 1018, or a total of $136ff. To all in-tfcnts and purposes, therefore. Western men are now getting practically what they demanded, $56 more on tho minimum and $31 less on the niaxi-m^im. " 'What, after all, is there to arbitrate about so far as the west is o�n-cer^^^d,' the government asks. "J^st what action will bo taken in the matter is to bo ddclded in council today. 'His Majesty's malls bo distributed,' declared, Mr. Doherty. Firm action is necessary. There aro several methods which can be used.' " FRESHLY FROZEN ICE CREAM as We serve It Is .n^bout tho most delicious thing ono can eat. Stop in tind have a dish of it when you feel tired and out ot sorts. It WiU Refresh You quicker and surer than anything else. After you have enjoyed its goodness, think of tho folks at home.

MANITOBA Winnipeg, July.2C.-It is expected that a specal war session o� the Manitoba legislature will be called within a tew ^eeks to deal with the cattle feeding crisis, In Manitoba, Premier Norris-ls expected back In Winnipeg nej^fc week. the real pillar of society It's a good rule that works both ways. When the farmer supports the home merchant and the home merchant supports the farmer, you have the real )illar of society. The farmer would have a poor farm if he did not have a good lome market. And the merchant can't build up the home market alone. He must have the support of the farmer. Likewise, the merchant has poor business when the Service he gives is not tKe best possible. The trade must be even. The services must be mutual. So, the picture you are looking at Now should be true froth both ends. If \l doesn't quite suit you this way, turn the paper around. Now you have seen the Real Pillar of Society. The farmer upholding the merchant and the merchant upholding the farmer. 6143 ;
