New York Celebrates ' New York� Nov, .7--A ware. of. almost frMtic acclaim swept New York from one end to another today when linconflrmed rejports were published that the Germans had signed an armistice. Although these reporb had re-,ceived no official cpnflrmation either in London, Paris or AVashington early this afternoon they were nevertheless credited, by the public here. They were distributed shortly before noon, whereupon- a' great celebration began which grew in-volume and enthusiasm as the news spread. . No Celebration at Ottawa. Ottawa, Nov. 7.-Ottawa did not enter on a celebration of the alleged signing of the armisticoy uut calmiy awalted the official announcement from London. Montreal Crazyr Montreal, Nov. 7.-'This ci^' went into 'furious celebrations of j[oy upon receipt of the news that an armistice had been signed. Whistles were blown continuously sund bells rung all over the city. Business was suspended and the streets quickly crowded with celebrants. Gnus boomed and smaU I arms' cracked. The people took a' chance on the correctness ot the news, but :'celebrat�d'anyway; GOES OVER IHE CELE6RA1G YET Armistice Has Not Been Siffncd -Wait for Official Statement At twelve o'clock today liomegolng crowds were starUed by a report anid to be emanating from C.P.R. or brokers' wires to the effect that Germany had signed armistice terms, surrendering unconditionally. . The result was that there was�!i immediate demand for a celebration. The Herald received hundreds of telephone calls, and was able to announce that its leased, wire had not carrie'-l any message to. the effect that the iirmls-tice had been signed. However the report became insistent'as it becamo known that the C.P.R. general offices ill Calgary had issued an order giving the force here a half holiday on the strength of theTeport. At two o'clock liCthhrldge time, the Canadian Press wires carried the statement that, though Washington had been celehrat-5ng for two hours, no official word had�beeu received there. On the strength of this dispatch Mayor Hardie, who was in the Herald office when the dispatch was received, issued a statement asking the people not to commence any celebration until the official- word camo through. "Then we will have a real good celebration that Lethbridge will remember," he declared. The Herald is connected'by direct wire with the Associate'd Press offf-ces in New York, anel on receipt of the first official word on this continent that Germany has quit will receive a flash to that effect. And then Lethbridge and Southern Alberta will be immediately apprised of the fact. The Herald learns that Ottawa is not celebrating, but is awaiting official wprd from London. GOVERNOR-GENERAL APPROVES Ottawa, Nov. 7.--The Governor-general, has approved the- order-in-council granting war bonuses to the civil servants. An official statement outlining its provisions is now in course of preparation and will be published, in all probability, this evening. They c'o^ider." theMnve'stment such a , good one that the city should not over-Mook (the chance of investing sinking fund ippnies in bonds which will bring 5^ per cent, as against the three per cent usually earned by sinking fund monies. 'Get Honor Flag. .More.honor':flags are being earaed by local "firmi.. The Gutta Perchs. Rubber'Go. staff has won a flag, while Supink and^Son have won an 100 per cent', flag. The staff of the Victory Loan headquarters have had an 100 per cent, flag for the past week, but have, been so busy they didn't have time to announce the fact. It ia hoped by the canvassers that by the end of this week the influenza situation in the coal camps will have abated to such an extent that a resumption of the canvass will be possible; So far the camps have contributed close to $76,000, but it is ex-pectisd thia volume vili be swelled to $150,000. The C:P.R. canvass Is also reported to be proceeding vigorously, and to have paised the $30,000 mark. Victory Loan Totals. Toronto, Nov. 7.-^The summary of the Victory lioan subscriptions up to 11 a.m. Thursday follows: Toronto, $42,142,500; Ontario, outside Toronto, $78,007,900; British Columbia; $12,175,950; Alberta, ?7.544r 850; Saskatchewan, $6,034,950; Manitoba, $16,405,300;.

Calgary, Nov. 7.---With the period of the Victory Loan campaign halt over Southern Alberta is reaching within raeasureable cllstance of its objective. With continued active work-by the whole Victory Loan organization, supported by the enthusiasm of the public, there is little doubt that Southern Alberta will this year, as laat, materially exceed its allotment. Returns from some of the outlying points are amazingly good considering the .difficulties which have to be com-batted with during this campaign. Particularly is this noted from the coal mining sections. Drumheller with one hundred and twenty-one thousand and the Crows Nest with more than two hundred and seventy thousand are examples of what is beins accomplished under difficulties. ' Lethbridge district is climbing up towards its objective of one mlHioii dollars, and the Cardsfon, Magrath, Raymond districts show an increase In one day of ninety-seven thousand dollars, moat of-^hioh came from Ma-grath. This district now totals $219,-900. Medicine Hat is within a few thousand of half a million. The entire Lethbridge district under Organizer Taprell reports $832,-900. A. F. Andrews, chairman at Medicine Hat, advises that the city expects to claim two crowns at any hour today. H. L. Williams, Union iBank manager of Pense, Sask., died ot the 'flu. v , ' '\__ffflTRSDAY.

This kind of rough talk will be heard less here in town if people troubled with corn^ will follow the simple advicte' of-this Cincinnati authority, who claims that a few drops of a drug called freezone when applied to a tender, aching corn stops soreness at once, and soon the com dries up and lifts right out without | pain. He says freezone is an ether compound which dries Impiediately and never inflames or even irritates the surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter of an ounce of freezone wilt cost very little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft' com or callus from one's feet.
