ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Having swung the southern end o their advance line into the Bukawin ian capital Czernowitz. tbe Rui sfans are now bending the. centre o the line towards Lemberg, the grea Galician fortress', and yesterday's dis i patches intimated that Russian airy had already reached a point lea than 60 miles from the fortress. Th j Russians are nbw maintaining almos a perpendicular line from Lutsk south i to Czernowitz, which gives some ide of the advances they have made. In the capture of Czernowitz the Rus sians are reported to have taken 300 prisoners. Heavy fighting is now sait io be in progress between the German and Russian forces in the Styr region Speculation is once more rife as ti Rumania intends to do. Thi capture of Czernowitz is an answe to her demands that the allies give J some sign of success. That the Rum% i inian government is now more than ever inclined to join the allies is ap- parent. It is stated that the Bulgarians have Started an advance near Monastir. i Fighting around Verdun in France German infantry attack! tffiade during the week-end were re- pulsed. Mr. Justice Craig, speaking in To onto, said that "millionaires are giv ng far less than the men who have e.w thousands, and he knew of on millionaire who is keeping back gopi lealthy sons and giving practical! nothing to any tund, while his ueigl or has crippled himself financiall and given flve sons to the Empire be sides." Conscription is needed in tha aillionaire's'family, declares the Otta wa Journal. It is a fact not alway rorne in mind that a poor man wh ives a dollar often gives more pro ortionately than a rich man who give thousand. "What sort of men are coming bac' o their homes after this war is over 'hey will be men-who have gone ti end of the world and looked ore the. man be the sami tier The daily sight of Blaugh will change their beliefs." Thi tatemerit was 'made by Rev. Dr. J aterson Smyth, before the Anglican ynod at'Toronto. Little do we realize experiences our men .have gone trough, and will go through, before his war ends. Many who went away mere boys will come back men with viewpoints and opinions they never have possessed had they jmained at home. ONTARIO'S PROSPECTIVE CROP FAILURE: When we had a drouth a couple o years, some..people thought the country would'never, recover and tha ;thft sections of country Effected were .not suitable for farming. The last year, very same districts (yielded more than in any the world, when the area and total yield are taken into consideration. Again this year the "were never better for a great crop. We are, beginning to for- get about the dry year, though we may jlave one again. If the farmers prac- '.tise proper" methods and conserve 'their resources, they can go throuKb another dry year without government A farmer" should not waste i his heritage. He should always pre- pare for the "dry as we are told to prepare for the proverbial "rainy day." Just now Ontario is suffering from too-much rain 'and-there is fear that many farmers will face hardihipi, because they will cot be able to get s crop. Here is a news Toronto Globe of a few days ago: Some sections of York county, In particular, seems to have suffered from the heavy wet hand of the Weather Man from various parts of the rain-soaked county, as well aa from scattered districts throughout the province, it seems that the only relief'may be found by the fanners la root crops, buckwheat, etc. Weak after week of rain is causing anxiety, and there are some Indications 'that real hardship will resolt in the com- ing winter, especially among men who do not own their farms Many farmers who- succeeded K planting early now regard themselves as less fortunate than their neighbors who are still awaiting an opportunity to sow, for young grain and seed are telnglrotted.by the excess of mois- ture On recent trips to Markham and Button, Magistrate Bran ton of Yoifc county court told of seeing thousands upon thousands of acres of fertile land standing barren. Fanners are dis- couraged Some are abandoning all efforts to raise crops this year. "A fanner told me this morning that it will be at least ten days before iMoraea can get on the ground to pre the land for the said Couhty Clerk "Phillips. He made the statement with the provision that the ten days would have to be dry Then, out of the window, he said: "111 wager that it is going to rain more today." Too' much rain, it will thus be seen, 10 M dtsutroas as too much sunshine and no rain. Most Ontario farmers are in an Independent financial posi- tion'and ,one crop faflare will not farmers should endeavor to place on a flound, financial footing because we may have a dry year again.
