HOW THE SITUATION LOOKS Tho news that Antwerp is being bombarded, with tho very possible re-Bult of the city being reduced and occupied by tho Gernums, is a dis- ; quieunc item of news when compar- i county ol Crook, in Oreeon, Is ed with the tenor of rei^rts ^Uich ! "g^^^^"" for eveo" coyote have been lately received from " Four race horses valued at $10,000 j were rescued by a boy from a Are In Xewion. 5.'. -Y. _____ _______ the iront. V.'hile Uie news looks bad its import cannot be considered altogether prejudicial to the success of the Allies. The occupation of Antwerp.becomes a ]iromlnent necessity to the Cennans, forced by the position In which they are at present placed. It i Is for the purpose, as la no doubt,! rightly surmised, for eatablishing a econd line o� defence through Brus-els in a southeasterly direction to Metz. This -would not only act as a barrier to tho Allies advancing Oirough Belgium against Germany, but will be extremely serviceable ae a retreat for, let us hope, the result of the enemy's anticipation that his present line will be forced to givo way before the onslaught of the Al-Ues. The nerr campaign, of the Allies through Belgium, with Oebend as ' a base, has apparently not.yait .be.on inaugurated. We may take it that LoM Kitchener ds iiidlng his time for putting in an effective force bo that there Bhall b� no question of suocesa. THANKSGIVING DAY Owing to its occurrence at a period unparalleled in the history of our Dch minion, ThanksgivlnE Day finds u�,' probably, -a^th mixed feelings as tc its appropriateness. But when we consider the calamity, for all is-ars are calamities, which will make the year 1914 memorable, and coinpare its effects vritb conditions as they exist then more than ever misgivings, if any, are drowned in a solemn sense of gratitude that our Empire, through a kind Providence, stands as it does today. Britain's fiart' in the confilct, considering its, nature, was Inevitable. We have therefore, reason to be thankful that, however much we may prize the blessings of peace, our statesmen were not vrithheld by craven fears from unsheathing the sword of Empire to defend tho weak, and to fight for fi-eedom and righteousness. And our thankfulness becomes twofold when we realise that %\;e have behind lis the might to support th-e right. Moreover, we have 'occasion lor much thankfu]a-8ss that in .spite x)l 'war's devastation dn other lands, our Empire In everj- portion stand.s un-Bcathed, and our daily occupations and avocations proceed as though the tramping of armies and the detonation of cannon were non-existent. More than 'before, i>erhaps, the need of Thanksgiving Day, in which the heart of a nation beats as one for mercies vouchsafed comes home to us. The sum total of Monday's thoughts t>'ill bo that with circumstances against us things might have been a great deal worse. From this we have been hc^pr.ily spared, and in the meu-Eur.3 v.-c recognize Thanksgi-\ing Day we shall sliow the volume of our gratitude.

Bilui>.:iluDtfi.|lutrui The Minister of Uibor, acting Minister of Trade and Commetce, rlaea: iip to tell us we're a lot of boobs for howling because the Gas Co. is witting the screws on, and slicking lis up, for 15 per cent, more on our fuel bills' thon last year. So we are. What's the use of hollering when we're stung. ItWas ail pulled off so neatly we ought to present Coste. & Co. with .the leather medal for bloodless surgery: Here's the way it worked out: >Ve, boobs, pulling for life niembarsbip'in the Do-Llttle club, resolve that we will forthv/ith cease to shovel aAes,'and clinkers, and that we will substitute the morning ride for the morning walk. Whereupon we vote ourselves immunity from the ash-pan by giving away one perfectly good gas franchise, andsimulfaueoufiy saddle us -with a ---strest railway. Of course, the gas franchise is like ready money, and of course the street railway ts no such thing. . �  Episode No.. 2.-The Gas Co.. as an inducement to relegate the ash-pitn to the city Incinerators (save the mark), sells us gas at 15 per cent off; 'Ap^ paling generosity. Episode No. 3.-Ash-pan gone, gi^s-installed, bingo! up goes the gas rate to the last rung of the ladder. 'T.he ash-pan being still in the city incinerator, we contiuiie to use gas-and pay the price. .. .  Meanwhile, our street railway carries a couple of hundred "r-*on't-walks" a da.v, and we ladle ciit the mazume with the other fist to foot the bill. .  v.\ Now, if we had been long-lieaded -we would have doppd it out lilse. this:, . For gas franchise-Nix. For street railway-Nix. Now, if "ni:i" had won, -we. would have spent about 1250,000 of the half million v.e dug up for thfe street railway, and gone out somewhere, put down a hole, got a gas well ojE our own, piped it into the city' and taken all the 'wind out of Medicine Hat's sails. Then we would have a profit of about $100,000 a year from the gas (the Gas Co. makes tSat. at least; we don't know how much ihbfe),; and would have saved from $23,000 to $50,000 hy walking. . . That little "nix'' would have netted usabout $15^,000 i year. - - � So, you see, just because Lethbridge got a lazy streak, we got'It in tbeneck fwo ways. ; Of all sad words Of tongue and pen, The saddest are these: "It might have been.'"

' ...gcgaggg I _t The New Patriotisj There is more than one way of serving^ your country. We cannot all go forth to fight on the blood-stained fields of France and Belgium, but it is within everyone's power to help crush the monster that threatens Europe. Modern warfare is a battle of resources, fin^cial resources most of all. Every dollar you spend for goods "Made in'Canada" is increasing the wealth, the resources, of the Empire, it is giving employment to Canadian workmen, it is contribyting to Canada's welfare, and it is supplying the sinews of war to Britain, it is helping to fight the enemy. The new patriotism seixes every opportunity to help^ the enlightened patriot insists that everything he buys be "Made in Canada." I PATRIOTISM PRODUCES PROSPERITY ;
