Half pay should not logically be included in the first calculation, because when the government made halt j 4- Brigades pay compulsory, it was said that this' sum could be set aside by the thrifty : suns aIK wife to provide against the rainy day which was bound to come at- the close of war. The cost of living is so high that there has been nothing left to the j wife but to use this half pay. j , s, . (2).

CZZZ, FOB tHE-v BUSY MAN 1" SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1018 14,453 4.3SG THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Friday's advances on the -west front \ *ere marked- by a continuation ot Very hard lighting;, the Germans resisting at every point to tha utmost #f their ability. It is noticeable, tiowever, that the allies are steadily pushing ahead and early morning' reports today state that the Germans are showing every indication of withdrawing from the Belgian coast. Ttie Allied troops have pushed within six miles of Lille directly on the west while north of that important city they have advanced past Lille almost to Turcolng. Fires behind the German ' lines indicate tbjsr- the Germans are preparing to evacuate another large Blice of Belgium and are laying waste in preparation. ' ,In the St. Quentin district the allied lines are being pushed steadily forward, and another 1200 prisoners have fallen to the British. The breach in the Hindenburg line in sector is very real, and is a serious menace to the Germans who have all along considered themselves to. be standing oa their winter/lines. ' ' In the sonth^thfe army ot Gen. Gour-Bud is mak^^prbgress. The Americans have advanced two miles in the Argonh'e and taken another 2000 prisoners. -*The advances in the south have resulted in a serious menace to the whole^of the communications between the German-armies in theiaon find Kheims sectors and Germany. An advance of 25 miles by the Americana, 'and French operating east of the Su-Ippe river -would result in a wholesale withdrawal by the Germans, and would clear France, v In Albania the Austrian* are retreating rapidly to the north. Their lines are greatly attenuated by the Bulgarian withdrawal, and big things are'expected here. In Serbia the Serb army is now in touch with the Aus-trians -whose duty it is to guard NIsh. -._ The _debacle in the Balkans,, ho,w-irver, will not be complete until Tur-.Jtey is put out of the war, and the commander-in-chief of the allied arm-Jos in the Balkan front has promised , ihat a campaign against Constantinople is shortly to be staged. The next few'weeks promise to greatly change ihe war. map in southeastern Europe. following is an approximate cost of such a family in Calgary: Per Month Food...................... f56.35 Fuel (for next six) .'........'.. 1S.O0 Clothfng, Including boots and shoes, etc.................. 20.00 Rent, at lowest .............. 20.00 Extras, insurance, carfare, light water, stamps, dentist, doctor, overseas parcels ...... 15.00 Total ....................5129.35 Is the soldiers' wife or dependent to be forced to spend to the last cent in order to live and be unable to provide against old age by placing a small competence in the bank? The* allowance of $70 has obviously been more than cut in half since it was fixed by the government by the depreciation of the purchasing power of the dollar, which is equal now to only 43 cents. That the child's pension or patriotic allowance ceases at the age of 1G years leaves but one conclusion in the average mind and that is that the government means that the soldiers' sons cr daughters are not to finish their high school course or to attend university. Ie this proving that "the best is none too good for our brave heroes and their families," the phrase that has already sickened most of the heart-sore dependents? Tha soldier is the j only man today who has not had his j pay increased since war was declared | and yet to be logical, and to put aside I sentiment for a moment, were his workr-r-in war times-to be let out by tender it would of necessity be the highest ~baid**?brk in the world.
