Your King and Country need you right RpUND THE CIRCLE OF THE VVAR The complete collapse of the Aus- trian armies before the Russian ad- vance, and the failure of the German campaign at Verdun, coupled -with the fact that the Allies are stronger equipped than ever, leads to the op- timistic belief on the Allied fronts that the war is drawing near its close. The absolute failure of the Austrian defence on the east will compel the retirement of the German lines en this will be disastrous for the central powers. The Russians are now close to Lemberg, one of the last defences in the path of the sweep towards the Carpathian passes. At Verdun the repeated repulses of the Germans are demoralizing the Kaiser's troops and an utter collapse here is also looked for. On the Italian front, the Austrian offensive has been completely checked by the Italians, and this lends another strong factor to the downfall of the central powers. Meanwhile, United States and Mexi- co are rapidly toward a state of war. Opposing armies are massed on the borders, and the match may be feet to the powder at any moment. MAKE THE DANDELION EARN.SOME MONEY Calgary has u dandelion Loth- bridge Is In u fair way to equalling Calgary's record in this regard. Tho Culgary Herald sees a glimmer of hope for dealing with the pest by utilizing the plant It says: While Calgary people arc saying many very nasty ihfngs about the poor little dandelion weed and seek- ing menus to eradicate it from their lawns and boulevards, people In other parts of the world are actually culti- vating and making money out of it. The root of the dandelion has for many years been recognized as one of the most useful of medicinal herbs, being specially valuable in the treat- ment of liver disorders and dyspepsia, t is also regarded as one of the most potent remedies for that very com- mon complaint known as spring fever. Besides the commercial value of the iandelion root the little plant has dible leaves which, when boiled, form an agreeable substitute for spinach and other greens at a much earlier period of the season than any other plant. And, that nothing of the plant may be wasted, the flower Is used for making so-called dandelion wine, which Is not only plaasant to the taste but can develop what is known as the "kick" quite as well as other commercial waters. For many years America has im- ported the hulk of its dandelion roots from Europe, but now the weed is being extensively cultivated in this country and men are making money out of it. They sell the leaves in the early season for greens, make wines from the flowers, and find a ready market for the roots among the manufacturing drag houses of country. But it is not likely that even this certificate character will serve to RICKED UP IN SSINGI FOR THE BUSY MAN The M. C. R. may make Sarnia a terminal and build largo docks there. Lieut.

DISTRICT NEWS PRAISE DUE THE PARKS DEPARTMENT .Some rather uncalled-for criticism has been levelled at tna city parks and boulevards department in connection with, what is termed the haphazard method of mowing the boulevards. .Thff; Herald: believes that praise in- stead of censure should be given, con- sidering conditions. In the city thera are 14 miles of boulevards to be'trim? __ med as often ae is necessary, which is rather often this year. To do this work a force of six men and one horse is provided.- This means an ex- penditure of nearly S20 a day, which is quite sufficient considering the times through which we are. passing If we had money to spend lavishly on this work we would have reason to criticize if.the work were not done :better, but.we are getting the bes we can pay for, and should be coa tent There are a lot of departments in the city where we are spending less money than we should, with tin result that some work Is being ne- glected, but the people are pretty well satisfied. And if there Is one department with which we should be satisfied it is that of SupL Mitchell, His work speaks tor itself. turn the wrath of the average Cal- garian away from the little plant. The work of destruction will go on against it just as vigorously as ever. Like many other things, it may be all right in its place, but out of it, it is a pest and a general nuisance.

While Uncle Sam talks oi war with Mexico, there" seema to be a glimmer of hope that the great European con- flagration may come to an end this year -with the expected Allied victory and peace terms favorable to them. A survey of conditions on all the Ironts -would seem to Indicate that there is some ground for such K hope. The summary made vesterday by the London Times French correspondent Is very hopeful, and thJs taken slong with the following extract from a re- cent French official statement is in- dicative of strenuous times during the summer. The French official statement men- tioned says: "It seams since the Vaux affair that the Germane front- "Ing Verdun are maintaining an atti- 7tnde of expectation In oi the menace of events which they feel are increasingly imminent" jit is hardly likely the French al- lowed this statement to go out for purpose ot deceiving the enemy, "Tbe" are all that the men- ace of evenU means the big drive on 'the weat front long anticipated, and which this Germans are endeavoring to postpone as long u possible by the taweltr of their Verdim attacks.
