"THE H0U8E OF SERVICE" - > . > � O  �t# �,�0>�����4 and explosives. -A large number of guns have been captured by the British and Americans, in addition to the great number of prisoners, which continue to arrive at the cages. The American troops alone captured two complete field batteries and a battery of heavy artillery.-The Americans captured these guns Tuesday afternoon when they suddenly outflanked both ends of the valley south of Premont, capturing all the German guns there. German reinforcements have arrived, but as these troops have been engaged several times recently their presence merely adds to the confusion in the enemy ranks. Throughout Tuesday aud last night the British had complete control of the air. .  Roads, barracks,' missed troop9 and batteries behind the Ger-niaii lines all were targets for the busy air bombing airplanes. During the day. it was noticeable that German airplanes were seldom seen. The enemy machines that did venture forth . to places where they were not wanted were quickly engaged in aerial fighting, a considerable number of them being brought down. Confusion in Enemy Lines . There is great confusion within the enemy lines. On the front of the two" British armies engaged elements from no fewer than 29 enemy- division have been identified along the 20-mile fighting front. Such concentration of troops seems almost incredible until it is realized that same of these divisions have been engaged almost continuously since Aug. .8 and many are mere shadows of the old organi7a-tions^- -, � v The ground over which the great battle has been fought is covered with dead men and horses and many Germans are buried under tons of earth in collapsed dugouts. Only a few of the prisoners captured.had heard of the Austro-Gerhian plea for an armistice and their ideas on the subject were extremely hazy. From all sources, it is learned for a virtual certainty that no formidable wire barriers are ahead of the British and Americans until the Valenciennes line is reached and after that the line of the Meuse river. American forces drove forward to 'day on the east side of the Meuse and occupied' Charney. In company with the French, they captured the villages of Consenvoye, Brabant, Haumpnt and Beaiynont. They drove the enemy well beyond these townstend are pushing the enemy northward in a desperate fight. In todays' operations more than !!,-000 prisoners, were taken, of whom 1,600 were captured -by the French east of the Meuse. During the last few days over 4,000 prisoners have been captured by the French. Eighteen heavy mortars have been captured. French Official Paris, Oct. 0- Attempts by the'Germans to re-capture the positions Rained yesterday by the French north of the Ames were repulsed with heavy losses to the enemy. The text of the statement reads: "In the course of the night* in the region south and east of St. Quentin, the .French captured the stubbornly defended German positions between Harly and Neuville-St. Amaid and outflanked the latter village, on the north. "The artillery fire was very heavy south of the Oise and on the Suippe front. * "North of the Arnes, the Germans attempted to re-capture the ground we gained yesterday. They failed and suffered heavy losses. The number of prisoners taken in yesterday's fighting on the Arnes front exceeds 600." Getting Away From Verdun. Washington, Oct. D.-American and French'troops are steadily driving the enemy from the scene of the desperate struggles for Verdun, Gen. Pershing reported today in his communique for yesterday, announcing an advance on both sides of the Meuse and the capture of more than 3000 prisoners during the day. He also reported the capture" of Gornay against stubborn fighting in the continued advance in the Argonne forest. Captured German Defenses.

U.S. AND G.B.

Carelessness with three and a Quarter drams of powder behind and one and one-eight ounces of shot is inviting "sure death." DON'T load your' gun until you are actually ready for business. At all other times it should be empty. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are looking down the barrel at your game. � -. DON'T use a cheap gun, as it is apt to explode when the heavy charge is used. DON'T borrow a doff or gun or loan cither. I DON'T rest on the muzzle of your gun. , ' '. � DON'T-violate- the game laws. It is not only criminal but sometimes very costly. DON'T "hog" all the game. Leave some for the nr-xt fellow., ' DON'T-rest the muzzle of your gun on the ground.

Amsterdam,* Oct. 8.-Former King Ferdinand mf Bulgaria, accompanied by Prince Cyril, .his second son, two Bulgarian generajs' and a -large suite, .has parsed through Budapest to his estate at Erenthail, -lower Austria, says a Budapest dispatch... to? the Cologne Gazette. In his jourjJsy^th.rbugb,- Hungary the ex-kiijg alighted gnly at the station of Ordka. Ferdinapd's former stately appearance had undergone a change'through the stress of recent events -and he walked sadly up and down the platform leaning heavily on his stick.' Some time ago it was announced 05 the American consul for this district? that Americans within the ages of 19 and 4.4, both inclusive, must register with .the Canadian registrar.of tho district within which they reside. This announcement caused a great deal .of. confusion as it was not known what registrar was meant. Now. however, it is explained that the military registrar is the person, which, in Alberta means Major J. M. Carson, Calgary. The following is the .announcement: "Male citizens of the United States living in Canada of ages 21-30, both inclusive, must register by registered post with, the Registrar under the Military Service Act of the district in which they live; during the ten days next.following September 2Sth, 1918; and such* citizens of the ages 19. 20 and 31-14, iboth inclusive, must so rog-. ister during the ten days next following October 12th, 1918. It must be emphasized that this includes Americans living in Canada of the above a'geSi married and single, and includes also all those who have secured diplomatic exemption or have registered with an American consul, or have registered for military service in the United States. - "Registration letters may, be: hand-, ed to local Postmasters for despatch to the proper Registrar, under the Milifery Service Act." Must Apply to Registrars and Fill out Questionnaire to Be Supplied. , A very Important announcement af-.fecting farmers exomptions lias been issued by the military service branch. It will be remembered that the boards of review during the summer allowed many farmers exemption till Nov, 1, after which date it would be npco3;>:iry once more to review thoir cases; Fur. ther exemptions to these men will now depend on their answora to questionnaires which will bo sent out to such of these' men as apply for them. Following is the order:  "All members of class 1 possessing exemption as fnrmors which is expiring and who wish to remain exempt should communicate with' the registrars under the M.S.A.,.oC their respective districts, requesting an extension in time of such exemption. Questionnaires will thereupon be issued to theso men by the Registrar and they will receive further oxeinption .upon furnishing satisfactory proof that Ihoy are contributing sufficiently to Ilia National Food Supply. "In order to facilitate productive employment during the winter months men exempted as farmers should ap. ply to the registrars for permits ifl/ engage for the winter in some ocbupa/ tiou of national interest ,such as lumbering, munition work, etc. Such permits will serve (o enable exempted farmers to pursue other useful occu� pations for tho months during which farming operations .cannot be carrieJ on;" / . ' These,' furthor exemptions, the Uqr aid understands, will be for a period of six months, when it is likaly appll cation will again have to be made. , The extension, of the exemption will in each case depend on whether it if justified by the applicant's proilua tion in the past season.
