Buchanan John Torranco Managing Director Business Manager AS THE SITUATION STANDS The beginning of another BUOWS that no change detrimental to 'the -progress of the Allies, in the great battle in 'Northern France, has occur- red. Official communications, both from London and Paris, continue to suppress details and simply content themselves with dealing in generali- ties. However, they are of such a ua-: ture that confidence is by no means abated that everything is going well with the plan of campaign initiated the allied commanders. The advances made by the Allies, we are told, have .become rapid. Their task of beating back the enemy has, presumably become easier, and the earlier obstacles have been overcome. Going on now towards the comple- tion cf four weeks since the-struggle 'was changed to new ground, the end cannot 'be very long. The successful finish for tha Allies will mean a tem- porary breathing spsoe for the re- newal of hostilities against the Ger- mans on their own territory.

The men who live at the foot of the moun- tain in Hamilton seem, to be realising their ambition to reach the top. The new governor comes of a well-known Canadian Hendries. They bare fteen. .familiar to most people as breeders of race horses, though nearly every male member of the family has Seen .associated with .the militia.

He possesses all the qualifications for an office of this character. Walter Brant and his wife were 'burned to death wheu their house, near Ueyoronto, was destroyed.

So is stomach trouble in In beer is more frequent- ly drank tlian at meal timer The "prejudice against strong sliinulnnls has in no the value of "Alberta's Pride the most nutritious of all liquid foods. This beer is absolutely pure. This is no idle claim, but otic that can back up by proof. Come to our Brewery and we will show you.
