WEDNESDAY,�'OCTOBER % 1918 THE LETHBIUDCifc l^XY rfF.RAJLD PAGE SEVEN Lethbridge Raised $28,000 For Red Cross Past Year Tho annual meeting of the Red Cross sooltey hold lust ifight at the r".M.C.A. was very well attondod. Ills Honor Judge Jackson occupied Uio eliiiir mid summed up the progress the looioty lias made during the last year In a very clear and concise manner. As usual, the speaker said, tho women Ihouldorod most of the responsibility, ind they certainly discharged their Unties admirably. Last year the fi-aanctal end was distinctly separated troni tho supply, department and the wisdom of this is to ho seen in the iplendl'd financial allowing tho r.oci-Dty has made. There in an increase in revenue of over $8000 over last year's allowing. The outwit will be. sorely taxed this coming,year and the supplies will have to bo practically doubled in quantity. His Honor who was presont at tho meeting of tho General Council of tho Canadian Red Cross held at Toronto a few weeks ago, said that ho thought the time had come when all supplies should be brought through the provincial branch and not local!}'. This for reasons of economy. Another important announcement Every now and again don't you get one of those fearful headaohes that drive you to do anything to get relief? Remember, though, its a mistake to just "smother" the pain without removing the cause. Nearly all lieitdaches hovelhcir befinnind in the rtom-ach, liver or bowels, �nil the befit remedy t R Chamberlain's Tablets, which tone (be fiver, sweetens the Btornnch and clesnse the bowels. This not only cures the head-sche but prevents its return. *All dialtrs ?5cIor hy mail from Ckambertun Medicine Co., Tsrmto gCfjAMBERLAIN-S 39 mndo was that tho Canadian Red Cross will have sole charge of all the Red Cross work in Siberia. Tho commissioner in charge of this work and who will bo appointed soon, will he a well known western man. Tho report of the Hon. Treasurer, Mr. H.. J. Smith was then read and approved.

London, Oct. 1.-(Bulgaria i.-There is great excitement in Germany over (he defection of Bulgaria, judging from special dispatches received here from Holland. On Saturday, (he excitement amounted to a panic. Ac-ccording to some reports the panic particularly affected tlie Berlin bourse, where war industry stocks, it is stated, slumped violently. Panic also struck parliament and newspaper circles ami public offices. The alarm brought forth the instant demand that "something be done." A dispatch to the Daily .Mail from The Hague says the demand is for somebody possessing the confidence of the Germans and their allies to replace the present, military oligarchy but opinions clash regarding who this vague personality might, be. Reports indicate u decided cleavage between the Junker and Conservative classes and tho-class represented by the Socialist and Radicals who on this occasion have the support of some Centrists and even National Liberals. Emperor William's belated anxiety for the people to co-operate with the government evidently will be distasteful to the Junkers ,one of whose foremost papers, tin: Ptreuz Zeltung, declares that u distatorsbip is the only possible alternative. On the other hand, the demand of the popular parties is for a popularly elected cabinet. The effect of the resignations of Chancellor von Hertling and Foreign Secreary von Hintzo on the public agitation is not yet reported. Nothing is known as to how the terms of the Bulgarian surrender have affected the German people if they have been permitted to know the terms. EIGHT CANADIANS London, Oct. 1.-Feats of gallantry in action for which more Canadians have been, awarded the D.C.M. have been gazetted as follows: 4,803, It. S. M. T. Adams.

Despite stubborn resistance and in face of heavy machine gun fire, he attained his objective and captured a machine gun, killing two of the de- Prince Von Buelow, former German imperial chancellor, may be the "vague personality" mentioned In the advices from The Hague as the statesman who is expected to appear as the German "strong man" in the present crisis. It has been something of an open secret for a long time that Germany was holding Prince Von Buelow in reserve for possible use in the critical period that the making of peace would bring and the very suggestion that comes now for a man of such type may perhaps be pointed to as indicating that Gel-many herself is coming to realize that the beginning of the end is at hand. Prince von Buolow has purposely been kept out of the limelight in the war as much as possible and has- taken no part in the political struggles that have arisen from time to time in the German empire. It has been understood that theldea that he would be thus untrammeled by internal differences that would handicap a man who had been active in German politics during the war period and would likewise appear before the world in a similarly detached light'. Chronology of Events Paris, Oct.. I-An official report from the war office on operations in Macedonia shows step by step the advance of the allied armies, which resulted in Bulgarian delegates signing an armistice with the allies at Saloniki on Sunday night. "The victorious operations, whicfc in less than 15 days, have led the allied armies in the orient as far as Uskuli," the statement) reads, "and also into the territory of the enemy, have resulted in a decision by the Bulgarian army to lay down its arms. "At 11 p.m. on Sept. 29 the plenipotentiaries delegated by the Bulgarian government signed an armistice at Saoniki. On Sept. 30, at midday hostilities ceased. "The operations began when a Serbia nd (vision moved forward and carried by assault the formidable mountain barriers of Vetrenik, Dobropolje and Sokol. By Sept. 22, they had succeeded in cutting the communications of the 1st Bulgarian army opof-' ating along the Vardar and those of the Bulgarian 2nd array and the Germans nortn of Monasiir. Displaying extraordinary endurance courage and spirit of sacrifice, all the allies joined in the attack on Sept. 18 against the enemy positions at Doiran, capturing this region from important Bulgarian forces. "Beginning Sept. 21. the Italian, Greek and French troops in the region of Monastir moved forward in their turn. On the 22nd a general pursuit began. It was conducted with ardor and splendid energy. "On the 23rd the Serbians and the French crossed the Vardar In the direction of Krivolak. On the 24th, French cavalry entered Prilep. On the 25th, Ishtib and the.-formidable harriers of Veles were captured. The British opened up the road to Strum-nitza, which they entered on Sept. 26. The same days the Serbians reached Kochana and Veles and the Italian, French and Greeks were marching on Kichever. "On the evening of Sept. 26, the Bulgarians asked that hostilities be postponed, announcing today they already were sending plenipotentiaries. "In tho course of these glorious operations, which the hurried sending of German reinforcements could not chock, the allied armies took a grea' number fo prisoners and an immense quantity of war material."

NEW C.N.R. BOARD BEING SHOWN AROUND Toronto. Sept. 2S.-Following the conference yesterday, the new government Canadian Northern railway officials visited the terminals of the road at I.easide and were impressed by the work that already has been done. President. Ha'nna informed hi.s colleagues that the work was not. as far advanced as he had hoped, as the company had experienced much difficulty in obtaining material and labor. Asked if the board will take action with respect to the taking up of the Canadian Northern .system with the Transcontinental and Intercolonial systems, the other government railways. Mr. ilanna replied that so far the matter had not been taken up. Regarding the reorganization of the Great Northern Telegraph company, a subsidiary company of the Canadian Northern system, Mr. Hanna replied that the matter would likely be taken up before the board concluded Its deliberations. The board will hold another session in Toronto on .Monday. THIS WEAK, NERVOUS MOTHER Tells How Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Restored Her Health.

WINNING THE GAME This country is a vast checker board in which the Old Town Spirit and the New are striving for the mastery. Old ideas die hard. The Old Town Spirit means the mastery of the few and the subjection of the many. But the New Spirit means the co-operation of all. It brings Life and Happiness to. the many. Is the new winning over the old in our community? And how do we as individuals stand in this game of community living? Are you playing the game for your town? Or are you playing it for yourself alone? Remember, pou can't stand still. On your move the result depends. Then let the spirit progress win.
