TO HASTEN THE END We live In heroic days? But how many of us are leading heroic lives? Simplicity, earnestness, elf-denial-these things ought to rule the dally life of each and every one of us. In all too many caaes they are not doing so. On every aide we can see unnecessary expenditures, personal extravagance and profusion, needless and heedless indulgence In pleasure and luxury. This is going on, although the need for the severest economy is as patent as it is profound. There must be a change.' For the sake of our credit and self-respect as a people, for the sake of.those who fight and die, we must confine our expenses to the things that are strictly essential. If we cannot do any more than this towards winning the war, we certainly must" not do less. So deny yourself In every way possible. Live � simply and seriously. That is the way to live splendidly. It is THE ONLY WAY today Victory depends upon it Save to hasten the end. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The Teutonic allies are crumbling. True to predictions, Prince Max of Baden, the new German chancellor has done tljat 'which was expected when his appointment 'was announced-he has started the drive for peace. Germany is defeated and knows it, and now, before her territory is invaded �he wants peace, and the terms now suggested go a long way towards an admission of ultimate defeat on her part Indications early this morning either to consider an armistice or a peace discussion at this time, though nothing official can he done until the German note, directed to President "Wilson through Swiss channels, arrives at Washington. The cause ot this move is apparent In the proclamation 'issued by the German kaiser. "The Macedonian front has crumbled," he admits, which ia an admission that the back door to Vienna and "Berlin has been opened. That tells the Btory. But the news from the west front gives another reason. The Germaa front is crumbling also. .North of Rheims the French on Sunday hit a terrific blow which carried them to .the Suippe River on a front of ten miles, freeing Rheims from the grip of the Huns and seriously threatening the whole of the German armies in the Dig angle round Laon. An advance equal to that of Sunday in the same sector would result in a wholesale withdrawal by Ludendorff, and he would be ah admirable general if he were able to extricate his armies without losses similar to those which overtook the Bulgars and Turks in the east recently. It i� hardly likely there will he any peace talk while allied arms are registering such great advances. It is only a matter of a few months before German territory is invaded and the German people have the war brought home to them In the only manner which will impress on them that war does not pay. Then and not till then, #111 the allies be ready to talk peace. Meanwhile Turkey k in a serious predicament.'The allied drive in Macedonia Is quickening, while Gen. Allen-By's forces ;liaye accounted for 71,000 out of the Turk army of 100,000 operating against him in Palestine. A race for Constantinople is on, and every chance favors the allies for the Germans are much too busy on the west to send, enough troops to protect the Turk capital while the Austrians are In deadly fear of the Italians who are even now driving them back Wildly into Albania. A DICTATED PEACE FOR GERMANY ? "There is a growing determination, more noticeable in the United States than anywhere else, to force an un- conditional surrender and a dictated peace upon Germany. It is a perfectly proper demand to make. Germany cannot be treated other than as u downright criminal. It has offended against humanity so glaringly, so per sistently and so maliciously that the civilized world should imposo upon it penalties that will make it realize that it must recompense devastated nations, free its colonies from ita bai� barian rule, and change its entire method ot government. Senator Lodge ot Massachusetts, now ranking Republican member of the TJ. S. Senate, expresses a rapidly growing opinion when he says that the terms of a "dictated peace," which he advocates, must not be arranged by negotiation with Germany, but must be imposed upon Germany as a result of agreement among the Allied free nations. Such terms as he regards as an irreducible minimum comprise the restoration of Belgirm, the unconditional return of Alsace-Lorraiue. the redemption of Italia Irredenta, the re-establishment of the independence of Serbia and Rumania, the securing of the safety of Greece, the establish riSent of the great Slav population as independent states and of an independent Poland, the blocking of the pathway of Germany to the East, the restoration of Russia, the taking away of Constantinople from Turkey, the sharing of Germany's fate by Turkey and Bulgaria, the security of Palestine, the Syrians, and the Armenians That Germany would acquiesce in such a peace as that is not to be imagined. "No peace," says Senator Lodge, "that satisfies Germany in any degree .can ever satisfy us. It cannot be a negotiated peace. It must be a dictated peace, and we and our allies must dictate it." American women hold the same views. It was only the other day that the Herald published a dispatch from Evanston, Illinois, reporting a meeting of the war mothers of America, the mothers of sons engaged in the war, at which a resolution was passed demanding unconditional surrender from the Huns. Canadian mothers, we do not doubt, possess the same opinion. As long as the United States is dominated by the sentiments, expressed by Senator Lodge and the war mothers, there can be no negotiated peace of the Lansdowne type. The United States has the resources in men and money to force Germany to yield to its demands. Most ot the other allies, though they have fought longer and sacrificed more in? human life, will back her up in the determination to punish Germany to the fullest possible extent. Just now Germany is knocking at the Allies' Nioor. It wants to enter and discuss peace. It knows that defeat is inevitable and before it is too late, it is seeking to avoid a just punishment, by negotiating a peace. But it is too late. Germany cannot escape the punishment it so justly deserves. It must be soundly whipped for a peace now will not make amends for Its awful sins. The handwriting is on the wall. Germany sees it It is now prepared to not only restore, but to indemnify Belgium and it Is agreeable to recognize Alsace-Lorraine as a distinct nation. It will not be long until it throws up its hands and accepts all the allies demands. It can't have peace, otherwise. President Wilson cut to the heart of the issue in his recent New York address': "We are all agreed that there can be no peace obtained by any kind of bargain or compromise with the Governments ot the Central Empires, because we have dealt with them already and have seen them deal with other Governments that were parties to this struggle, at Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest. They have convinced us that they are without honor, and do not iD-tend justice. They observe no covenants, accept no principle but force and their own interest. We cannot 'come to terms' with them. They have made it impossible. The German people must by this time be fully aware that we cannot accept the word of those who forced this war upon ua. We do not think the same thoughts ] or speak the same language of agree-j ment." Germany asks for the Allies' terms, j President Wilson has made them clear time and again, so has Lloyd George, Balfour, Clemenceau, and all the allied leaders. There can be no peace until those terms are compllnd with. IMPRESSIONS MEDICAL SERVICES Tommy Church, Mayor of Toronto, says the war will be over before 1919. Tommy is evidently working for reelection and if he can end the war before the next municipal elections he will consider that he is entitled tc an acclamation. The financial' adjustment that must take place when the war is over will impose a penalty on the whole world. Thrift must build up what war is tearing down, and we will have to bear our share. We may roll in wealth for a time, but the day of reckoning will surely come.

Their atfvantages in speed, comfort and freedom from trouble are very real and very desirable. These qualities have made possible the use of Goodyear Cord Tires on five-ton trucks, travelling at passenger car speeds; on all the winning cars on all the speedways of America. But long mileage, less gasoline consumption and slower car depreciation are the real factors in Goodyear Cord success. Users write us of mileage far exceeding hat rendered by ordinary tires. Goodyear Cords are standard equipment oh more than a dozen famous cars. � These facts are more convincing than (anything we could say to you of the merits of these tires. They are ample reason why you should have Goodyear Cord Tires on your car. You can obtain Goodyear Cords at fair "made-in-Canada" prices from Goodyear Service Stations. The extra thick and extra good Goodyear Heavy Tourist Tube gives service equal to the Goodyear Cord Tire. It comes in a handy, handsome bag. Tube, bag and box are stamped "Heavy Tourist" for your protection. Goodyear Cord Tires and "Heavy Tourist" Tubes are higher priced-and better. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., of Canada^ Limited s ;
