Tho Aisne battle line now fonns a narrow head with Looh&rmel as its point, just north of. tho Marne. > It reats on Coucy Le Chateau on the west and Rhelms on the east. These two points are thirty-tour and a-halt, miles apart and the old battle line lay betweori tho two with slight undulations. From Coucy to Xiecharmel, the southern extremity ot th� new llnd, la 2'>% miles and from Rielma to Lecharmel is 2S>^ miles. In the rough triangle formed by these three lines there Is approximately 250 square miles of territory, which represents the fain In territory made by the Germans in their advance ot this week. The Germans yesterday made a slight further advance but gave indi cations of slowing up. Rhelms is still in the allied line but its evacuation is almost certain. The Germans reached : the right bank of the Marne yesterday.

Why Is that, whenever a controversy over municipal matters arises la this city, sonieone must -come along with the statement that the city is receiving bad advertising? We have heard it times without number. A few years ago it was considered good form to hush up the discussion ot all contentious matters on the ground that outsiders would get a bad opinion of us and refuse to come to live here. ' This excuse lor stifling discussion, is worn -aiid frayed. It never amounted to anything. Is'obody ever stayed away who wanted to come to Leth-bridge and live.

The Huns may take Paris, they may even get the channel ports, ^'' but we do'not believe they can smash the Allied armies. And so long as they cannot accomplish this, final victory Is certain.

LINK UP WITH AGRICULTURAL AQENT8. Fanners In Soutiem Alberta will do well to keep In touch with the work being done by the recently appointed acrlcoltural agents who are lending th�lr 'efforts to the cause ot greater^ production. These men, about a-.dozen ot them throughout the province have already done much yaluablo work In co-ordinating farm labor, farm machinery and the farmers, connecting the various elements which enter Into greater pro-dtiotion up with the work that la to be done. Fanners should not be at all backward in calling upon the district agents tor help In any of their problems. That Is what the agente were appointed for, and the purpose of the Government will be defeated If the farmers fail to take advantage of the opportuniiT offered. The county agent plan, which Is so widely followed in the United States, haa proven a great success la securing the employment ot better farming methods. Alberta In adopting the plan has followed a wise course, which should be encouraged by the farmers, who are tk* ones to specially' benefit. [WILL BASEBALL BE ABOLISHED? Will baseball be abolished in the Tjnlted States during the tenure ot the war? This interesting question Is being discussed by many serious minded newspapers over the continent. The Spokesman Review intimates that people have not the time ] now to take an afternoon off lo go to a ball game. The Toronto Globe, commenting at some length on the subject, says: �Wien the people ot the United States picked up their *nev.'spapers yesterday and read that under the Pro-wst-Marshall General's decree professional baseball players of draft age might have to seek other occupations after July 1 or fight, they j had a new an^ vivid sense of the 1 '., dont.- He is also . prjeaidontif of thft Cifdstdt U.

V V SOUTHERN ALBERTA DOING NOBLY. Sir George Bury, vice president ot the C.P.R., returned to Winnipeg the other day after a trip" over the prairie provinces and confessed himself as being well pleased with the general outlook. The farmers, the backbone of tho West, are putting li>rUi every effort, he said, and besides a huge area In crop a great volume ot new breaking is beiug done. Mr. Bufy has every right to be proud ot what lie has seen on his western trip. "What he says is true. The farmers ol! the West buckling to their taslc,,ln the right spirit. They realize tjia igreat need which exists for everjrtiilng they can produce,.and without spending daya to go 10. OU tawa to,urge the Government not to takeonen'off tho land, those who..are left are redoubling their efforts so that always an tacroase may bo recorded. � For threij years now,-ever, elnce th&.' vutbreaJt oi tile .wSr' tlie IsiimerS ut realtUee of war. If baseball be classified as a nbn^useful employment It will mean the end of the professional game until the end ot tho war, and for mlllloBS .�t'Americans that would be the en^'ofthe supreme Joys ot life. The poet who wrote the immortal "Casey at the Bat" described with patbos the gloom, that settled on Boston when' Its alar batsmen struck out with three; men on bases. "Somewhere ' the bands were playing, and somewhere hearts were light," but the particular community which had basked in Casey's effulgence utterly lost Us spirit and Its local pride. The psychological effect of the stop, page ot baseball in the whole" country present* a problem to the authorities. They may decide that the game ;'ia useful in keeping the people, in a ' cheerful mood and reconciling ' thorn to food restrictions. The votary ot baseball would rather forego one meal a day than his favorite pastime. On tho other hand, the abolition of basoball,.,would be a taste of tho horrors of war, and might conduce to a more serious frame ot mind and concentrate tho  attention of "fans" on the score in the world series ot a more vital game across the Atlantic, It looks, as la protagglonal basoball were doomed for the period of the war, and that the fans, Instead of watching paid players perform, would have to take up some form ot recreation which they themselves could take pari in during leisure hours. Whatever may be achieved in destroying the weeds by the draining of the Henderson Lake, at least an opportunity Is presented for removing certain unslghtllnesBes, not the least of which la tho objectlonablo sign board-the aftermath ot the abandoned attempt at an outdoor'movlo'sljpw.
