Is It las healthy .it your pay envelope or your profit and loss account just now? The war has made theae strong. But doesn't yeur prosperity worry you a bit? The war haa meant sorrow, death and untold sacrifice to others. What haa it meant to you, Just more mohey to spend? If your conscience is bothering you, sacrifice js the cure. Practice) thrift to the point of sacrifice and it "will feel better. Canada has great problems and obligations to meet, but she can face the future with confidence if her people sacrifice and save. If they refuse to do this, the outlook is dark. It's up to the individual. Begin the sacrifice now. Save to Lend! The progress of the war - If Germany sincerely wants peace she is taking a poor way to get it. Stories continue to come through of the burning of the towns and cities in the territory they are being forced to evacnate in France and Belgium. T#e deportation of Belgians continues. Tills alone is enough to force the civilized world to fight until the last Testige of German militarism is wiped ont. . The Gentians are evidently satisfied that their crimes of the present and past put them outside the pale of peace at the present time, and they are lighting with desperate tenacity to keep their west front intact. On the Suippe river they.are fighting the French advance with great counterattacks, but in spite of all their efforts the French have crossed the Suippe, and at the junction of the Suippe end the Aisne the French have crossed at Berry-an-Bac, and have also captured Conde-sur-Sulppe. If a crossing on a wide front can be effected in this region the whole German line of defense along the Aisne will be turned. iWest of this point the Chemin des Dames has been turned on both the east and west flanks and that fldge will soon be entirely in French hands. Further east, northwest of Verdun the "Americans yesterday launched a-etrong attack which promises good | results. On the Belgian end of the line the Germans are slowly retiring, destroying as they go. The evacuation of Wile is likely to be a logical result of Ibis withdrawal. The Bulgars seem to have deter-sained that they will rid their country of. the German influence which has dominated it since the fall of 1915. They hare ordered the German and Austrian armies out of the country within a month and they are leaving. As the allies have the right to use the Bulgarian railways for strategic purposes the attack on Constantinople is likely to be easier than expected, and Turkey's days in the war .are numbered. Gen. Allenby's clean-up in Macedonia has resulted in the capture of Beirut, an. important Syrian seaport on the Mediterranean by the French Most of us are inclined to associate the work of tho Jled Cjoss entirely with hospitals-with the sick, and the wounded and dying. Some of us may know, and yet often overlook it, that the Red Cross, the Canadian Society, is serving even in Germany. Without this service many � Canadian prisoner of war might die in a wired-in prison enclosure or worse than all, might starve to death or go out of his miud. Prison life in Germany, without messages and comforts from the homeland, would be a living death to many of our ' men. Thanks to the Prisoner-of-War Branch of the Canadian Red Cross, the prisoners, all of them, remember, receive regularly and frequently, parcels of food and dainty delicacies. One only needs to read a letter from a prisoner Just out of a German prison and safe in Holland or Switzerland to realize the wonderful service the' Red Cross is performing. Here is one that was shown me when I visited the Canadian Red Cross headquarters, in London: Now that the opportunity presents itself, I take great pleasnre in writing you a few words, which, although only words, they are from my heart, thanking you for your kindness in the manner in which^ you have looked alter my needs as regards food and clothing. "I can truthfully state that but for the kindness of those at home many of us would have died of absolute starvation; in many ways the Germans inconvenienced the direct delivery of the parcels, but nevertheless, they and freedom, were all that were worth living for. t would like to thank each and everyone' who were directly responsible by their kind contributions, buc not having their address all addresses being 'taken from us when 1 came away, this I am unable to do." In another letter I read these words: I may assure you that if it was not for your work.there are .many of our Canadian boys who would qever have seen their ^ homes or Canada again." Not a letter did I read, that did not contain expressions of the deepest gratitude. It is not known to many Lethbridge people, that a Lethbridge lady, Mrs. L. M. Johnstone, is in charge of this parcel department. The Prisoners-of War Branch is directed by Mrs. Rivers Bulkley, whose husband lost his life while in command of the Princess Patricias. Mrs. Johnstone directs the sending of the parcels and it is a very responsible position as from Ave to seven hundred parcels a day are dispatched from the quarters on a rather quiet little street in London. Mrs. Johnstone is devoted to her work and is in her little-office, almost the entire day. "What do the parcels contain?" is a natural question.' Each box, as it THE GOVERNMENT and the people If the Union government and its administration are misunderstood by the people it is the fault of the members of.the government. The,^ government needs better acquaintance with the people. An occasional meeting here and there enables the people to understand what the government is doing and why it is doing it. It is personal contact that counts. Hon. Mr. Rowell is to be commended for appealing on the platform and enlightening the public. If some of the othW ministers practised the same policy the government would be bet-Iter understood and appreciated by the public. _-.______..__... LET GERMANY PAY THE PENALTY The German, when all is going well, is a boastful braggart, but the German, when all is going badly, is a downright coward. It is only the "bully" type of man that smites little 'children and women and others, who are not his physical equal, but when this type of man is given punishment he is a coward. So it is with a nation like Germany. As long Us it was winning, any kind of a crime was right in its eyes. Now that it Is being sent backwards, it wants to avoid being pushed over the ropes and so, like the coward, it prays the allies to stop the fight. The Allies shouldn't .stop. They should wallop the iron heart out of the Huns. There should be no cessation of the conflict until Germany yields the minutest demand of the Allies, This is no moment to treat with a beaBt but it is the moment to make, that beast realize that it is due for the punishment it has so richly earned. Senator McCumber's resolution in the U.-S. Seriate expresses our sentiments. Germany must pay a hard price for its awful crimes against humanity. This is no time for negotiation; it is the time to deliver a. smashing blow to the enemy. The Hun realizes he is beaten and wants to avoid the penalty, Just like every common coward. / is packed and sealed, has the list of contents posted on tho outside and two of these lists will show tho sort of articles sent and how they are varied: Liver and bacon Tripe ' Rations Mutton Pudding Bacon Jam Rico Grape nuts Cocoa RicG Milk Milk Sugar Sugar Biscuits Tea Dripping Biscuits Jam Soap Soap Gong soilp. I may say/that the word "Rations" mentioned is a meat preparation There are nhvays special parcels, not quite according to the regular list, for men who have distinct tastes and have asked for some substitutes for the usual articles sent-one man may never want tea or coffee; he gets cocoa, and so on, and again others ask to have additional articles put in their parcels and charged to their pay. Then j there are the hospital cases for whom special food again is provided. On the outside of each box besides the list of contents, is a Red Cross form which states whether the parcel is provided from the funds of the Can adian Red Cross or by some particular person whose name is given, so that each prisoner knows exactly who is providing him.with his supply of food. A contract has been made by the Canadian Red Cross Society with the "Civil Service Stores" in London for the entire provision of supplies for these parcels, with the boxes and the girls to pack them. A glance will tell you the girls are carefully chosen, each one having to present very searching certificates of qualification. The packing room is also provided by this firm. A lorry calls every day for the parcels, which are loaded with great care and taken to the Post Office, one of the girls going with them on the lorry and taking with her the list of names to whom the parcels have been addressed. These the post office officials check over as they are handed in, and the girl brings back the list to Mrs Johnstone, who has a duplicate, which she carefully ^compares with the P. O. receipts. All this to ensure that no man is overlooked. In fact, there are always some parcels to the good each week owing to departures or death, and these the senior N. C. O. prisoner in the camp uses for new arrivals ncft yet reported, or according to his dis cretion. Germany has not lived up to any of its obligations as a nation with its signature to The - Hague convention One of the provisions of that conven-! tion is that when a soldier becomes a prisoner of war his own country continues his pay, but hfs captors feed and clothe him. Germany has forgotten all about this agreement. Writing from Holland, where he was interned, after release from imprisonment in Germany, a Canadian Corporal declared that" prisoners could not live on the food the Germans provided them. Here is what he say3: "I feel it impossible to c.6nvey to you my gratitude for the kindness and Ohoughtfulness you have shown to me during my stay hi Germany as a prisoner of war, and I a33ure you I attribute my good health while in Germany to the fact that I received the parcels sent from the Canadian Red Cross Society In suca good condition and containing such wholesome food. It would be a matter of Impossibility for a man to live and' retain his strength on the food provided by the Geimans, and I can truthfully say it was not fit to be given to swine leave alone men. But thanks to yourself and other kind ladies devoting themselves to the work of providing us with good food through the C. R. T!. Sosiety, we have come through the ordeal with our health unimpaired,. and fit to return to our country to continue tc "do our bit" as men of the Eritish Empire, when our period of detention Is over. Let us not forget this Prl3oners-ot-War work when we are making our contributions to war causes. It is a grand and noble work. It brings cheer to many a life, in fact it saves many a life. T net** i In action, iu one of the | last great engagements. There are over 700 known cases of Spanish influenza in Sydney, N.S., and the board of health has followed the banishing of dance halls, theatres and schools, by closing churches, bowjlng alleys, pool rooms and all meetings whatsoever. Appraisal of the property of the late John W. Sterling, a lawyer, of 912 Fifth avenue, New York city, whose estate, was left practically entire to Yale, makes it certain that, under the conservative estimates of' war conditions, It will reach $15,000,000. Yale's total endowment is $22,000,00. Dr. Richard B. Moore, of the United | States bureau of mines at Denver,-announced he had discovered a substitute for radium which he has named mesothorium. It will at once come into wide use in luminous paints, aeroplane dials, compasses and munition sights, according to Dr. Moore. An injunction to prevent the city of Toronto from paying over its grant of $15,000 to the Catholic hut fund was taken out by Albert W. Hornan. Tho hearing will be on Oct. 12. The grounds on which the injunction is sought is that there is no authority under the Ontario Statutes by which the city can make such a grant. The request for an armistice and the opening of peace parleys by the central powers Is looked upon by the French press generally-as an attempt to evade certain disaster. It is declared that German hopes to conclude a peace which will permit her to exploit the peace treaties of Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest and also save | the Hohenzollern dynasty. Instead of subsiding, the epideoiic | of Spanish influenza at Toronto is becoming worse. So severely has it | struck the city that hospital accommodation has been taxed to the limit I and prders were given at the largest | civic institution, the General Hospital, that no more cases of Influenza were | to be admitted. Negotiations with Belgium, Greece! and other countries which will lead to | the signing of "slackers treaties," which have been in progress for the I last two months, are now said to be | so near completion that steps have already been taken by the.authorities to secure a list of the names of citizens of allied countries now resident In Canada, who will be called upon to join the colors. Regulations to restrict the fuel consumption ofprivate country clubs, golf, yacht and canoe clubs, have just been approved by order-in-councll, at the instance''of C.'%. 'Magrath, fuol controller. During the, period from December 16, .1918, tq anarch 15, 1910, uo eoutfU'^-golf, yacht or canoe club is to,iburn or use coal of any do-(scriptlon or to use flower derived from any such fuel for purposes of heating or cooking. There la no restriction, however, op. tho use of wood or peat by any atich club, when such wood or peat is available. An interesting - story has been reported to Ottawa by the skipper of one of the fishing schooners which was sunk b,y, German submarines in the Bay of Furidy. This particular skipper was taken on board tho submarine betere being set adrift. To his surprise he .recognized the sub- marine captain as a former wheelsman on a ^ug boat, at St. John, N.B. The submarine captain was kind to his old friend and even showed him, the machinery and operations of the submarine. .Apparently-.the submarine captain had been sent to Canada to operate on account-of his knowledge of the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick toaat line. ' ' >. Mrs. A. H. Tusker, wife of A. H. Tasker, who, until the .beginning of the year, was manager. of the estates department of the Sterling! Trust com-. pany, Regina, and ^s now in tho grain and milling business at Portland, Oregon, has disappeared from her home and, after an absence of ten days, is still missing.

Moving amongst sick people of my charge, I have proved it an absolute fact that for old wounds, cuts, ectema, and skia diseases, Zam-Buk is really mas-reHous."-Rev. A. D. MacLEOD, Harcourt, N.B.

Watch the Kaiser toss his throne into the hands of the mob some of these days. Germany believes in "soaking" the other fellow and then quitting when a "soaking" for itself is in sight. Germany, having killed all the men, women and children possible, now wants to call things square and cease the fighting. That's the coward for you. The soldiers In the trenches should be consulted about peace negotiations. If they were, the Hun would find that it would be a case of "Back to Berlin" for him _ Ottawa, Oct. 7.-Orders have been issued from the military department authorizing the formation o� a third tank battalion for service overseas. The appearance of this in the field will render possible the formation of a tank brigade-$ne more powerful unit In the Canadian army overseas. It is proposed to recruit the new battalion among French Canadians, thereby giving this element in the population of Canada distinctive recognition in an arm of the service which has attracted much attention, has won much glory, and has proved of extraordinary efficacy. It Is intended that French-Canadians thus will have a complete- distinctive unit. Recruiting, as far as possible, will be voluntary. Earlier contingents sent by Canada to this arm were raised by volunteering; and attracted a particularly fine type of young men. Special instructions are being sent to Quebec and Montreal to set on foot a movement to fnate the -new unit.
