The Germans opened an attack in force before the city of Rheims this morning, \but were completely repulsed by the French forces, whose brH-liant work was specially comme'nte^d upon. The' Germans made no gains whatever, but their losses*were'lieavy. The British conducted a jaid of sonje proportions, which was entirely successful. The Italians and their allies on Oxei Italian front continue to resist t4ie' Austrian drive with great success, the Intensity of the figliting having died down at many points as a result of the superb Italian resistance.- CITIZENS SHOULD VOTE TO-MORROW. The citizens of Lethbridge will decide to-morrow who shall fill out the unexpired portion of the term of A. }l. Grace. Commissioner of Public \Vorks. Though there has been an attar lack of interest la the cam-palcn,. the voters should make it a point to ^ to the poUa so that whoever may be elected may know that be has the support of more Uian a mere handful of citizens. Two good candidates have offered themselves. Both have iold the people -�-hat they will endeavor to do if elected, and the records � of' boJLh' are open books. The p^ple sliou'id' be in a position to choose. The Herald has supported Mr. Oliver, believing that his past experience as mayor and alderman -of tha..'ci(yi has fitted him to render the city good service In the department, and that his business training is what is most needed at the city hall^for the next few years, when strong'hands will be needed to steer the city through to a safe financial position once more. Moreover, .Mr. Oliver, is ready to support ^his economy platform in a practical manner, serving the city at a saving of 13,500 per annum. The honesty of his purpose in this regard is not to be doubted, and we feel that the citizens- will not value his offer llghtiy at'thls tfme. We are sure the citizens would "make no mistake in introducing a little new blood'at the city hall by the election ot air. Oliver. ONE TYPEOF ONTARIO FARMER^ The Reformer man had -the felicity, a day or so since, ot meeting up with an old friend in the person ot Mr. Joseph Downey, better known as "Joe"-a one-time ornament of th� newspaper buBiness and ot tha Ontario lie�i�lftturft-now growing more rotund and Jovial than ever \n the padded chair ot a general superih-tandant ot a big government institu-ttoB at OrlUia. Up in his country there seem to be people in sentiment quite similar to some Norfolkitea. He told ot a crowded meeting ot four hundred farmers ot one wealthy township, without a dollar of muni uipal debt, and less than half a dozen private mortgages, where, oifter the Union Government had been damned by speech for three hours, the pent-up indignation ot the crowd found vant In the passing of i resolution to the effect that whereas the township �was paying a mill on the dollar for the provincial war tax and had raised 4350 for patriotic purposes, that their sons be not conscripted.

(From Our Own ('orrcspomlont) New Dayton, June 15.-The dance In aid of the Red Cross Society, hold under the auspices of the local Women's Institute, which came otf hero last night In tho "William Scott" barn, was by tar ^le greatest success of Its kind over held In this locality from any and every point ot view. Dancing started about ten p.m. and was kept up until about .'i.OO a.m. Visitors from the whole south country were present, some coming as far as Milk Uiver, Taber, Raymond and hethbrldgo. Auction a Steer. A yearling steer presented to Mrs. Foley by .Mr. Scott wn.i raffled off about midnight, the winning number being held by James Vlnnna, who without any compunction whatever at once turned It oVer to the lied Cross again ifor sale. Frank- Crouch was callod on to act us auctioneer, which duties ho performed In a very satisfactory manner. The bidding was quite spirited and at tho end it was a race between Ralph Atlclns and Crls Selk as to which of tfieiu should have tbe animal. Finally, however, when the blcFhad reached I.^S.OO, these two sports agreed to flip a coin", the loser to pay for the animal. Ralph's luck was with hini and Cris paid for the steer, turning It over to the Red Cross again like a true sport. The I animal was again put up tor auction, I tho bidding being just as brisk as ' ever. Herb Johnston making up his mind he was going to have it'this time. After running the bid up to $52.00, Herb produced his check book and wrote a chock for the amount. Not wishing to be outdone by any ot the rest, Mr. Johnston also turned the steer over to the Red Cross in whoso bands It still is until some day in the nnor future when It will again bo put up .for auction to the highest bidder. All told tho Red Cross is !fliii).50 to tho good on tho steer and still holds tho nnlninl. Tho total rceelpts for the evening amounted lo $;ilS.li4, which we think goes to show that the New Dayton ])fiaple aro propored at all times to. assist , In this or any other caiiao whore patriotism or self sacriricu demand It. This Is the second dance tor thi> same purpose In two WDfks' time, the rocolpts of both netting the Red, Cross somotlilng like $,'')0n.00. 'I'ho Women's Inalltute aim to at least raise $1,000.00 In this manner before harvest, and with this end In view we understand on the coipple-tlon of tho ' John Cress" bam another danco will be,^iven. this, wo aro InCormed, Gust Kaupp Intends to come along and give us what pcrhnp.s tho closing dance ot tho season, and wc can assure him the whole community will ho with him In his eflorts to do his bit.
