' THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The situation on the British front BOW gives reason tor the hope that the German drive at St. Quentln has been checked to some extent.' The Germans according to'their own claim, �nd tho British have not yet denied It, are- occupying a line from Peronne, �outh-east through Ham to Chauny, all of which points they claim to have taken. Thts represents a retirement of tho British forces of ten miles deep on a twenty mile front. In other words the Germans have gained hack halt the territory they lost in the drives' of 1917 and 1916, by the BrIUsh. The Germans'claim to have taken SD.OOO prisoner^ and) 6p0 guns, but their losses In killed and wounded have been tremendo'us. THE LETHBRIDGE DAH^Y fJERALD THE SOLEMN.DUTY OF THE CANADIAN FARMER. Mr. Farmer, there may be reasons which discourage you from undertake Jng to plant the biggest acreage In the history of your farming operationa this year, but to allow these reaaona to prevail would be suicidal. E>very fam-mer must do just that-plant the biggest acreage he has yet attempted. The Herald was talking 'to an officer who returned a few days ago from. England. "The hardest thing to get over there is a man's meal," he said by way of explaining the food situation. Let every farmer In Nortb AmeftM keep that in mlnd^and act accordingly. . iyveip not want. Ut* tanners'.to tos-wei lUiIs by saying: "Oh, it'a easy;' �ncugh for you newspapermen to/sit In your offices and write about production. Just come out to the farm and �ee what we have to contend with. Where are wo going to get the mep to take off the crops? Look at the priM ot teed for our horses, the price'oC seed and thp price of implements. And then tt might be a dry season." : Don't let tbo poealbillty of such ezl-(encles deter you. The allies must be fed. If they ar* not the Oermana win. Bow every acra available and urge your .neighbor to do likewise. It 'a likely that there will ba aoma labor bortage. during harvest. If ererjr bttplnessmaa in Canada has to spend a veek or two weeka in the barveat Uald the crop will be barveated. It U �'duty ' THE WAR'S LATE�T CNSATION.

CANADA^iHOlitD HONOR SUCH AS MAIliON SRUCE. Saya the Toronto Globe; ^ ' ^ In a atHkinK arllcle on "The B^duca-tlon ot the New danadian," in the Saskatoon Star, J. T, M. Anderson, M.A., Iiti.B., D. Paed.i tells how Marlon Bruce," a young girl teacher, wrought a revolution ih the lives ot the Huthei\-Ian settlers, among whom oho had lived lor a tlm* as a school teacher. She was a grocery clerk in a AVostom city, and, becoming'^IitipresBod with the ignorance and illiteracy of the settlers from continental Europe with whom she oamo In contact, applied for n place 88 a teacher. She was assigned to a remote abd lonely Oallclon settlement, with Sloughs and swamps on every hahd^the haunt ot tho frog, tho wild fowl, and the coyote. In the set-Uoment there were scores ot entirely illiterate adults, and over eighty little children "rapidly settling down to live the expressionless lives of their ciders.'' Marion Bruce woke them up. She made theni come to school with clean bodies and neat, it patched, clothes. She gained their respect by her Industry in teaching them, and thoir affection by her kindness and helpfulness. She was forced to discard the English text-book in use because many of the terms used In it^"pug dogs," "clam shells," "birch trees"-dealt with conditions entirely beyond the experience of the children, who had to be taught through stories and incidents that could be related'to their own daily experiences. ' The school "plant" she acquired to that end included pictures of birds' nests, tarm Implements, men and wo-mien about whom stories, could be weaved, especially ot Incidetits in Canadian history, collections ot grains and seeds, miniature sets ot dishes, samples of tools, locks, keys and the fitting^ likely to be found around a farm house. Speedily the children acquired a vocabulary which could use dally in their own homes. In arithmetic the pruuleniB set had to do with buying and selling eggs, butt�r, poultry, or cattle. Useful Bngllsb began to make a place (or Itself in the settlement. The parent! became greatly interested, when one day during a geography lesson "De Mlaa Teacher" told the children tbat the country from which their parenta came wa� eigh teen tlmea shialler in area than Canada. Thla was a aurprise to the pupils. "Beef country, Cuiada!" exclaimed one little fellow, and the next day ht� Ruthenlan father came to the school to find out if what his little boy had reported regarding the site ot this new country was true. The whole district was interested, so the teacher invited the parents to come to the achoolhouse and she would tell them something about their new home. They all came., The bulldius was crowded, and much surprise was shown' arovlded a sewing roaoiinc, and for a time the teacher taught dreaamaklhg. Today ther.^ are many sewing machines in the district, and moat of the mothers ca:i run them without assistance. : Before lllneaa forced "De Miss Teacher".to give up her work there was a achool lunch-room, a school workshop, a school garden, and a school bookcasa In that remote settlement Today there are five hundred trecH growing around. the school: a lasting memorial to.the teacher who planted-hope in the hearts ot the Rutheniana 'of Jarodnotskl. One raaila the above and wonders whether the macnlflce^t work done by this aplendid young Canndian girl who la nakinc good Canadians out of thea� Rnthantaai. U not more deverv-lag ot hoiiora than Is Sir J. W. Fla-TaUa. But, ud, many other Canadians whoea ohtaf claim ^or recognition In the way o( tlUea waa tb� money they had alaflaeid diiriDg the war. irthere are ionpra going, Marlon Bruce should bacouatadlB. -"^ Ther� la Jqat one other thing the Borald wbnld tlka to mention in oon-nectlou wit^; the above, and that is t^e fact that Marion firucs holppd brighten the jives ot her Ruthenlan flbckby having 600 tre�B planted around the icbool houBA.
