THE PROGRESS 0F THE WAR The allied successes tary or clvU supplies,njunltiona o� the field or to munitions of the Xac-tory, tUft concluaioi; Is the same that, whereas our supplies are Increasing and our capaoltles for produciUB them on the increise also, the total output of supplies by the enemy is decreasing both absolutely and relatively." ^ A.-G." G., of the London Dally News, has made a visit to the front and the following Is his Impression: "It is not easy from such a swirl of experiences to find the main current of things; but the effort is worth making and comparison with the past will assist the task. It is more than a year since I.was on the French front, and two years since I was last on the British front. What Is the capital change that has happened in the Interval? I thlak it can be stated In four words. The Germans are going. In a general way we know this here; but there it is a visible fact. It is not a thing worked out on the map, but a thing present to the eye-a living fact which you seem to breathe and feel and J TllUt^SDAY, 8, 1^17. know with that kind of assurance that defies analysis. It is this sense of victory, subtle, all-pervaslve, which marks the fundamental dMTerence between September, 1915. and September, 1917. Then the dominant note )was the sense of the power of the V .UB au.ea successes in Flanders ^^^n^^^^. �^�ed like a rock against I ,. , , i which the waves of attack broke Im- are reviewed iin recent dispatches .ns potently.

You_feel ,Uie glorious part the Canadians have , the waves creeping forward, slowly, it played in capturing the Paschandale I'\ true, but with cumulative power. ! The moral balance is reversed.' France's Bloodless Victory (By Hector Cbarlesworth) French .sololers have won victories In this ancl many other wars; but one ot the ereatett victories In history- was won by the Fi-ench people without shedding a drop of blood. It was n democratic triumph which uon-pluesed BUmnrck and'abniatlst Oermany. It was thc^people's answer to the crushing disasters of the Kronco-German war of 1870. Though the military poner of Franca had been deatroj-ed, nnd Paris had fallen, Bismarck was not satisfied. To reduce France to the position of an inferior power was bin aim. H-i cXE.cjrd ipdethnlti'js wl'!Mi ne thought would permanently cripple her. But the French people fooled the man ot blood nnd iron. They defeated his purposes with silver bullets. Even the humblest peasants camo.^forward with their savings nnd, loaned them to the Government. They believed in their country's destiny and every dollar was repaid to them. . Their patriotic prudence meant speedy recovery for'France; nnd the baffled Bismarck was so furious that in 1875 he wanted to make war on her again. Germany never forgave France for not staying c'Vushed. France would have stayed crushed if her people had hesitated to loan money to the Government, Canadians face no such terrible alternative as did the French in 1671; but the possibility is not yet averted. It is to destroy that possibility that Canada's "Victory Loan" Is being floated. Every investor will become a factor in the final victory and stockholder in the nation's resources. Canadians will show that fore-sighted patriotism lives In them as it did In the French forty-six years ago. ridge m and holding it against the | ^^^^^^^^ Lo,^^^ j,j ^ sternfeBt of German efforts forms a | ^^j^ ^^^^^^ optimistic, major portion of the report of the op- j ..^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^.^ ^^j^^. eratlons: The plains of Flanders are | j^g for peace.

AVe went to war to relieve Europe from the menace of militarism, and until that menace has gone, and the world has been made safe for the peoples as against the princes, there can be no peace. That end is probably a good deal nearer than it looks. So tt(e disconsolate citizen will see that-there is really nothing to worrj-about. In war, as in life generally �we must have our ups and downs, but it^ perfectly clear that there is no �"chance^for the eueniyjand at any time he may be hoisting the white flag.

J. Cponey, a reservlBi who has returned-home, was the first man to leave Macleod for the war In 1914. On leaving Macleod he went to 'Valcartler where he spent a few weeks, then went overseas.- A few months were, spent in England, and he was sent to France, where he has been since .in the Railway Department, and for the past year has been running a train from Calias to Ypres, carrying everything, and at times bringing, wounded soldiers out. He .speaks of exciting times during the big; battlep, and is glad to he home for a short time. His time was up in August, and on landing In England was conscripted. He prefers if he returns to be attached to the Canadians, and has made application fai- this. He says the Canadians and especially the Alberta boys, are the most daring of the soldiers at the front. He has a wlje and three small children in Macleod. At the auction sales held hfere lately, the prices realized have been good, and all cash. Meetings to name delegates for conventions, are being held, the N.p. League will hold their convention Thursday in the Town Hall, to select a candidate..

Dr. Warnock's friends will not allow the convention to pass without having the doctor on the list, and several others are mentioned, and an interesting time Is looked foi. At the Liberal convention a number of names wlll*'be submitted, and in all of the conventions lively times are looked for. The city garage changed hands this week, Dixon and Moore having sold out to C.->Althani, who has employed first class mechanics, and the agency of the Chevrolet car will be'continued. Several sales jif town property have been made during the past few days, and many improvements, with additions' are being made to dwelling houses. The demand for houses is greater than at any time in past history of Macleod. W. H. Atkins, secretary for the Victory Loan in Macleod, Is busy preparing for aionday, November 12 when he expects to have all in read! ness for the big rush, which promises to far exceed the amount named. Mr. Glendenning, the recruiting officer for Macleod constituency was in Macleod today arranging for the printing ot the proclamations, and oth er necessary printing in convention w^ the election. The weather for the past few days has been almost like summer, just what the farmers like in which to do their fall ploughing, and all oyer the district are to be seen the black fields In preparation for the 1918 crop. uotlon Sale Ther^ Will be Offered for Sale by Public Auction �it the ; NORTH END LIVERV BARN, BARONS.' :.'\ On Saturday;,' November lOth At 2 o'clock Sharp, the foliowing 1 carload Marcs aiitl Ages from 4 to 8 years.
