THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Germans find themselves in an extremely unenviable position follow- ing the capture by the British ot Thiepval ana the high ground to the northeast of that point, from where a sweep of the entire country across to Bapaume is obtained. They now are in exactly the position in which' they once had the British forces at Mes- Bines, with no shelter in daylight from tlio sharp eyes ot the outlooks, anci unable to move about in the slightest degree without dra-n-ing upon them the fire of the enemy's guns. The BNUsh have entirely pleared the plateau of Thiepval of the enemy, and are now holding all the positions gained against the most bitter counter attacks by the Germans. The French, in their turn, have made further pro- i Mr. Wilson nut on top ol tills ho IB BOttins an oii.oriuous price. The Saskatchewan farming commission, utter Inking volu- minous evidence, found that the cost ot producing a bushel of wheat was cents. Cull It CO cents tor eood measure. With these figures before us lot us son What the Southern Alberta farmer as done this year. 'The average selling price ot a bushel of wheat to the Southern Al- berta .farmer has been less than SO cents 1" the past ten years. His aver- profit Is 20 cents. That is high, but call it that. This year he is get- ting SOc more than the 60 cents cost of production. It can be seen there- fore thai he is getting four times his profit on each bushel. He is getting four profits this year. He is getting two crops in one this year." From a. mathematical standpoint he Is getting eight average profits oft tliis one crop. No other country in the world ever did it before, and prob- ably no country in the world will ever do it again. And the man we have about -is the average farmer. There are some with fifty bushel crops. They are making nine or ten profits. 'Will the world believe it? A MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1016 niCKEDUPIN j'-.-GRAIN 'bought nutrlght or nhujdl'td on commission.
