ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Germans attacking the fortress of^Verdun are now not only facing the failure of their oCtensive there, but are also In great danger of being cut off,, and of being unable to withdraw their, forces successfully from before the PrenbU lines. The nature of the country is such, according to French attthorltles, that the Germans have been caught between two fires. Increasing activity of the British fleet In its watch over the North Sea Is reported by war correspondents who have recently visited the' fleet. It Is stated that the fleet is never very long at Its moorings now, and that German warships have several times ; made dashes for the open sea. The supreme naval qlash, which will settle for all time the supremacy of the seas, should not be very long postponed. An echo of the early days of the trar when the Russians suffered defeat after defeat through lack of ammunition, "^de'to grafting and traitors among Its leaders, is heard in the dismissal from the councils of the empire of Gen. Skonlhomllnoff, the former minister of war, who is said to be responsible for the ammunition shortage. , The _^aUled bombardment of Zee_-ferogge by air, has rendered that Qer^ man airship base absolutely useless. T^e base is said to have been so shattered that it is merely a crumbling mass of masonry. ALWAYS AN ASS!-N. Y. Sun. J)ICKED UP IN ASSING r-I FOR THE BUSY MAN to THE SERIOUS MATTER OF SEWAGE DISPOSAL Soniewhere, someone has been blams.dn; the past for the. fact that "iJeiSDriaWe was-"compelled* to install a' ycwa^^&lsposal system while towns farther.up the river were still pen miUed-to:dump their sewage Into the w^t�rs.of the river, thus polluting the souree'of the city's drinking water supply. The provincial board of health hasibeen called on by the city commissioners and the board of trade to face this situation-in earnest and de-viae 'spm4 means whereby a remedy can b'e-^ovided. Macleod and other towns plead lack ottuhds at present to instal a proper ,Be^ag6 ^.disposal plant. But not so iiiiany years ago these towns had plenty of money to expend oii other .tfititgsrn'ot so vitally Important, and iLbthlng'was done. Is there not some way by which the newly created public' utilities board of the province ^ould'flnd funds for Macleod to Instal a proper plant, and thus prevent the recurrence of the epidemic which Tipite'd Lethbridge this spring? ^fENNY BANKS FOR '� JtiE CITY SCHOOLS ;|;'Th^re is a possibility that the Ontario system of penny banks for the 'fchools,-which is one way of incul-feating the spirit of thrift amongst , ihe B^olars, Is applied In Cal- ?:hy not in Le'thbrldge? It would /^alte -very little effort on the part of the'i^chool boards of the city to give fhis system a start in Lethbridge, and ijts Lyaiue to the pupils of all grades ^ui'd-he s incalculable. Sbme such a system was suggested In the annual report of President Mar-noch of the board of trade recently published. Now the Calgary Heral^.comes for-vrard with a commendation^ of i^ia tiysteni and urges its estab'l/s'Hment-in Calgary. The Herald says: ' , . � "The idea is a goodf .one, ,aSQ ' The Herald believes - tiiat the  school board, after securing the, , necessary information will be well advised in taking the matter up strongly among the children of Calgary. It is most desirable that the rising generations in this country should learn to be thrifty. Goodness knows they have had a : bad enough example set to them ' In the past and generally by their owi)^ parenU at that. , Tliat; a people to be really happy' and succetiafur must also be thrlf-.ity, is one'of the lessons we are learning from'this' war.

HON. DUNC4N MARSHALL GIVES MASTERLY STATEMENT IN HOUSE (CoXTiyilKD FROM IfnONT PaQB) Beat Herds of Stock Money has been spent on the farips, more will be spent and In two years from nbw they will show the beat l\erds tn the'Dominion. Thqy^-^iow have the best herd of Shorthorns In Ganada-'On the Sedgewlck tafiti ahdiiii ten years will have the best'on the continent of America. Mr. Marshall outlined some of the work in prospect and said he hoped before long, there would be seyerail. more demonstration farms and schbbla' In the province. His idea would be to; keep on growing until these schools' multiplied, so that every farmer's aon would have the advantage of a vocational education. The capital expenditure. In Alberta on the schools has been $110,000 and there are more pupils in these schbbl| today than there are in the fotir-and-a'-, half million college in Manitoba^ Mr. Marshall read *b tribute frbmlDi'. C. C. James to the Alberta. syatem, who said if ,Ontario was a'n'are, of the benefits trbm them, Ihere would be' ih time an agricultural school in' eve^ county In that province^ Mr. MaraliaU with masterly eloquence deacrlbed the scope of the school ot agriculture and painted a most enthusiastic picture of the future poaalbllltles. The minister next dealt Avlth'the assertion of Mr. Kemmis that the immigrants arc victimized by the native Canuck and told of the' aa'alatanoe given by his-department to give: all possible help to the new comers. , Jlr. Marshall .In discussing t^e weed problem said the poMcy-ot tlie department was to help the'farmefa to a reasonable extent to."keeif dbjyn the evil. This year nearly .all the money is to be spent in Sbutherh Alberta. In the north where there la no tumbling mustard or Ruassian thistle and very little wirid, it la up to the farmers and rural councllq creqaea by provinces being: OntaHq 10 per cent; Quebec 50 per cent; Jfov^ Scotia 10 per cent; Prince Edward 1^-lan^, H per cent; New Bruns-wlcK, 18 per cent; Manitoba VJ per cent'; Saskatchewan 38 per cent and Alberta 7.6 per cent. The problem, will al-wa;ys be with us and the minimum of evlPwiU only be maintained by'vlgl -nnc^ on the part of the Individual fai^ merp. The fine showing by Albertf In the special federal report Was.deeUl-edly gratifying. The minister reviewed {he work of the abort course achools and expressed pleasure at the gre4t: Interest Bhow.n in the- cltlea, Thq[ dairy competitions werb review-ed('|tlso the women's Instftutea',' whlol; have' g'ro'wh' from 47 to lOt In'a' 'year and:.which are doing a splen'dl'd worlc. Mr..-Marshall dealt with the grain con ges(ion> told of the efforts to aecurf relief and what the federal premier andfofftclals did and said great credit Is due'J. A. McColl, M.P.P., Acadli^, for his efforts which accomplished sp much at Ottawa. T|ie development ot the dairy business was outlined, the total last yeaf being over twelve million dollars. Thf Alberta butter has driven the Neiy Zealand produce :dff the British Columbia'markets. The Alberta grade has .been so well established there ia HQ'Jllffiiulty in selling it. Ten carloads were sent to Australia and a carlpadto Montreal, which gave great 8atl|faction. He predicted with ton years more the Alberta dairy products wouid total 30 to 40 millions and Invade every market of th* world. Kxpresslhg appreciation of Mr. Mlcjiener's tribute to his ofllclals, Mr, Marshall lauded Hon. Martin Burrall for iliia assistance to provincial dev par^me'nfa and he could honestly sa.v all the-money was spent without ro-^igard to political considerations. The miiiister' fxplalned facilities for mark. oUigi tiie various farm pwlucts. anrl concluded with an eloquent tribiite to the*X7nlted Farmers' orgaulzatTon,'-ea-pec ally the great convention *held recently In Calgary. \ Congratulates Marshall George Hoadley, Okotoks, Ipllowed Congratulating Mr. Marshall'. on .-his speech and the vast amount ot detail given of his department. He had.some criticism to offer, which would not be personal. Ho considered the steps takein- to bring, about the destruction ot -vyeeds as Inadequate, the legislation not J being sufficiently conprehensivo. He ^thought" the minister was in line for improvement by giving .more .power 'to municipal organizatioha. GbV' ernmerit Inspiectors are always r^-gar^ed as more-or leas pb)ltlcal,- although he did not share that view, It wa^' the- outcome of party stress. He thought one of the great dutlea.'ot a minister of agriculture was " to ibolt after immigration.:\People cbme-.-to the; prbvlnce- and go on farms being unfitted for such work. The.depart-.ment should organize machtnery^Up hjihd pick th^ immigrants and aa'cor-tain their inclinations. He pradlcteji thai in future the foothills, would be the, greatest dairy country iii t\iB world and consequently all classes sho^ild not be allowed to go intio that class of country. Mr. Hoadley advocated encouraging farmers to keep sheep to kill weeds. He also made a plea for government assistance In helping the southern district to got water. . .  / . ^v.
