THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. FJgbtlnB furiously along the northern bank of the Marne, the Germans have presiied tlieir otrensive to the greatest possible degree, in an endeavor to force a crossing, without uccess. The French have everywhere held the Germans during tlio week-end, and they have been able to make only the slightest advances at tremendous cost. The German crown prince, who commands on ,this front, has sacrificed whole divisions of men in his vain attempts, and the German drive may now be said to be definitely checked. Sunday the French drove the invaders out of several villages that they captured. In Flanders the British have recorded successes in raids against the German lines. An allied offensive on a large scale is now predicted. MOTORISTS SHOULD JOIN THE AUTOMOBILE CLUB. The Lethbridge Automobile- Club is an organization that is doing something for the community.

Writing in the Grain Growers' Guide, a correspondent gives the following very interesting description of experiments being carried on In producing a hybrid type called cattalo in the Walnwright buffalo park: And now another feature of 'interest is added to the buffalo park, and that is the cattalo. A couple of yeargs ago a few of these hybrids were brought from Bobcaygeon, In Ontario. Breeding and cross-breeding has been continued, and now quite a large number are to be seen. On going through the park and looking at the various species of nature's handiwork, one is not very agreeably impressed by mankind's attempt to divert natural tendencies. The cattalo are quiet, having no vloVint buffalo hatred for dogs, automobiles and pedestrians, but-they are not beautiful. Neither Is a buffalo nor a cow, but they are etill less to. To see an enormous black Instead of a brown buffalo, with instead of a buffalo's face, a blank white Hereford "phiz," is nothing ehort of startling. Or a sorrel-colored, curly-coated buffalo with a similar white face, looking Innocently at you from under his eyes beneath hia uraat bump, makes you tap your head wilti ytur hand an! doubt your own Ban- jiy. I am tol-1 rha'. th9 Buffalo has f'E-tees, ribs, domestic cattle thirteen, and the cattnlo fourteen. Hence, In breeding up the caiialo. they nio creating a larger type of cattle. It Is mostly, apparently, with the Hereford and Polled Angus that the cross Is mado. The first experiments wjere hard on the mothur animal, as tne dome'iiio cow was used, and the humped formation of the calf v*as the difficulty. Latterly more humane experiments liave been conducted, using the buffalo cow and a sire of the domestic species, Hereford or Polled Angus. These breeds of cattle are good rustlers, and ao, of course, is the buffalo from the fact that tho peclee thrive on these prairies tho year round. . Neither buftalos nor callle paw in now as do horses. But the long dew-lay of the buffalo is used by. him to rub aside the crust and snow, in order that he may reach the grass, another trait shared by the hybrid. It Is on theee premises and expectations, therefore, that stockmen hope to build up quite a unique breed of cattle, 'large and hardy and adapted to almost any rigors. ECONOMIC PRESSURE ON GERMANY. * Mr. Thomas W. Lamont, of the WnkIng firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., declared the other day that it is the business 'men of Germany who will bring about peace. Peace will come, jiot "because tho people are starving, lor the^ are not starving. It will not bo because of .economic exhaustion, for Germany Is not economically exhausted." It will coiuo because the enemies of Germany can ruin for a long period her foreign trade and Germany without this trade would bo "a bloodless, lifeless Germany." Business men In Oormany may well think that poace on Allied terras-pence which will leave tho real Germany nntouclicd In respect to her frontiers -is bettor than ruin by economic isolation. Mr. Lamont said with emphasis that peace will not come through the financial collapse of Gcr-man.v. Tho coinpolliiig power will he tho resources nnd power of the .\1-lies, backed by delcrnilnatlon to uso' lliem. This t be made clear that Germany cannot; win in tho field. But a weapon not ; less potent, when backed by military | force, is the throat o( the economic. isolation of a Stato which livijs largely by foreign trade. | There are not many tilings, says l the Toronto Globe, which Germany in ! her blind arrogance fears, but one of; them is the permanent loss of raw material and of markets. Evidence is not wanting that the growing super-; iority of the Allies in the air is due ' in part to the inferiority ot materials ; used in some German flying miichines, I Wlien German civilians are ordered ! to hand over to tho military uutUori- i tics all of their.suits of clothes but | one. we may see how real is the i lack ot wool and perhaps of cotton. The German bu.siness man is supposed to have a keen eye for the future, j If he calls up the picture of a Ger-1 many which, even with peace re-! stored, cannot get supplies and must j lack a hundred things vital to her in-1 riustrial life, he may well have sinking of heart In spite of his continued devotioB at the shrine of Hindenburg. We all desire peace, and one problem for the Allies is to consider whether, while Germany is fighting for military success, she can be made to see the futility of her efforts, sinqe economic defeat is well within Allied power. 11 is certain that the .\lUed Governments, including the Government of tho United State?, are considering a declaration to Germany now^ of their future economic policy, as a measure for shortening the war. A French economist, M. Edmond Las-kiue, has recently outlined quite bluntly a policy. Germany, he says, can have uormai economic relations with the Alllea after the war, but; only It she accepts soon reasonable j peace terms offered by the Allies. .\t a moment when we wait, breathless, renewed slaughter in Europe on a colossal .scale, time'Is of the essence of the problem. With an early peace, says M. I./askine, economic freedom for Germany after the war; with peace delayed, economic Isolation; it peace comes now, the restoration of normal relations; it it is delayed six months, an economic boycott ot Germany for five years; if it Is delayed for one year, a boycott ot ten years; on. On the face ot them, such proposals, it muat be admitted, sound crude. If we trade with Germany after the war it is because we expect ourselves to profit by this trade. It causes no anxiety whether Germany gains or loses by such trade; we are thinking ot ourselves. We must carry oif' our trade or shrink into economic obscurity. The problem before us now cannot, however, be settled by a single econoaiic rule. We confront a situation unprecedented in the history of the world. It is divided into two groups, one ot which controls the vast bulk ot man's resources. Human freedom Is the iesue. The enemy ot freedom must be brought low. It he can be starved into submission so much the better. The problem is not one ot conditions In time ot peace but in time of war, We have to consider whether an economic threat will quicken the coming of peace. A great diplomatist said the|other day that the thing which Germany dreads more than the power ot the Allied armies in the field-ta their economic power after the war. He added that the time is near when this power should be thrown into the scale to hasten a decision tor peace. Hitherto tlie United States has steadfastly opposed economic war after the military war. But there are leaders in the United States who are beginning to aay that eiidurlng economic war may be made a factor In tlie military war. it riius.t be admitted that the problem is .obscure. Germany may be able to find In Russia and other subject territories economic compensation for an Allied boycott. Probably no question except that ot operations in the field is now causing closer study in high circles than this one of economic pressure on Germany. If a threat ot boycott for even a long term ot years will end the war more quickly and save many lives, there are tew of us who would resist even so extreme a measure. But tho question is complex. The threat ot a boycott may only give the Gorman leaders a renewed plea for sacrifices from their suffering peoples, a renewed cry that Germany Is Ilghtlug for her life. M. Laskine's jiloa is alluring but may well be a wIll-o'-tho-wiBp. \ PICKED irpitm^ PA SSIJVG TMB BUSY MAM � Grace Lusk was found gtlllty in Waukesha.
