In addition tlierp could. ,be military attractions and Other features that would attract and: entertain the crowd. We want to bring the farmers into closer Telatiok: Jwith; Lpthbridge, and a gather- ing of this kind after the harvest is would serve the purpose. We are merely making the suggestion; it would-rest with, some local organization, the Board of Trade preferably, to work out the details. The Festival could last a week and .with the co-operation of the railroads it ought to be possible, to: attract to the city people from all over the south, provided an attractive week of entertainment was furnished. Our merchants should get behind such a movement as it would mean much to them. In addition to-the attractions the merchants could feature a special shopping week. -People' who never traded here before drawn to the city and might as :a result become per- manent customers. The farmers had a good year Thev haie had to woik hard, and a week oft would in all likelihood appeal to them Now that the suggestion has heen made we hope that serious attention will be at once given to the holding a Farmers' Festival at the end of Noi ember and Quebec townships also are i the fore.

The last few days has witnessed a remarkable change of opinion in regard to the Balkan situa- tion. Whereas at the beginning of the week, the prevalent attitude was that the Allies practically were forced to leave Serbia to her fate, since such measures as they could take were foredoomed to failure because of their inadequacy, there now exists almost confident belief the -Teutonic plans to open a way to Constantinople will be checked. German progress from the north has been slow; Austrian advance from Visegrad has been even slower, and the strategic value of the Bulgar- ian-German Junction in the northeast- ern corner of Servia is held here -to be less than the Germans assert. While there is no .disposition here to deny that the situation in that part of the Balkan theatre is critical, it is felt here that it is 'by no means hope- less. Russia Sends Big Army Reports from Germany of Russian preparations to throw an army of 000 men into Bulgaria, are taken as first evidence of the execution of the general plan uf campaign arranged by the Allies to make good their pro- miaea to Serbia. The-fact that Premier Asqultb has selected Tuesday as the day on which he will make a comprehensive state-- ment regarding the war, is thought to indicate that by that day the Allied operations will have so matured that secrecy is no longer essential to their Big Patriotic Rally To-night Knox chureh auditorium should' be filled to its capacity this evening, when Dr. Harcourt, returned mission- ary from India, will speak along pat- riotic lines under the auspices of the Alexander Gait Chapter of the Daughters oE the Empire, and for the benefit of the Patriotic Fund.
