THE ONLY PEACE WORTH WHILE We want Peace. But it must b�  real Peace-a Peace that will ^rlng safety and lecurity to the world through all the years to be. It It only by complete Victory that we can compass that Peace. And Victory is coming. A peace that left the Prussian power unbroken would laat only until it was ready to strike agiin. Year after year, \Ve should watch It creeping ever nearer and near-lei^-that stark spectre, Uhe pre-aage of another and a yet more fearful War. The brave soldiers, whose aledge-hammer blows have started, the Hun howling, are our surety that Victory can, and will, be won-and with Victory, the only Peace worth having or worthy of the name-if we at home but do aur duty. That duty is to save and tend when the call for the Victory Loan comes. Deny your-eelf to do It. Help to hasten Vic-lory? Help to win true Peace. Save to Lend. ITHE PROGRESS jPFTHEWAR / "Let the allied commanders dictate Ibe terms of an annistJce." I That in effect is President Wilson's iLDBwer. on behalf of the -allies, to the Cerman offer of peace made on Sat-ViJay. It Is the bast answer that ioould be given. Military necessity has dictated the German peace move, and ^he. great backdown in German peace terms Is the result. -Military results Should therefore be the guiding principle in any consideration for an arm-l|ltice. Let Foch say the word. i It ig evident that, if the Germans #erp actuated by mJlitary necessity in ihelr answer nwdo on Saturday they iael' the � necessity still more today, f oijiinee Saturday morning probably 4he'^"greatest result of any three days if the wSqle war has been obtained. fn the north the pritlsh, Belgian and lYencb armies advancing Monday jrreated Roulera, the first large Belgian city to be reclaimed, from, the Qennans, and the German hold on the Bjrhoie Belgian coast is broken. A ^pld" tetreat which will lik^y free ipniges and Ghent and the whole Bel-(ilBll.-coast to the Holland frontier �say now^bo-axpected, and the new ^Ifjan enbmarifle effort which is ft^tcted*y Sir Eric Qeddbs will be iflT^a iiftrd blow. � �' coast. H. R. Parker, school inspector, visited our local Consolidated school and reported very favorably of the progress we are making In our school work.

J� ' l!teut.-CoL � 1(Ttlo|S) Multoy/ organizer of the "Win-the-War" convention, and promine.ntly connected with the Bonne Entente' movement between Ontario and Quebec, has been appointed by Sir James ,Lougheed to a position in the department of soldiers' civil re-establishment. The schools and theatres and other public meeting placesj including Brock stre5t tabernacle, where Honeywell Is conducting a series.of revival meetings have been closed by.-Dr. .C. H. Amys, health officer of P.eterboj-o, as a pre cautionary measure, against the farther spread of Spanish influenza, The municipal dei)artihent of the Saskatchewan government has approached the principal of the Keglna Collegiate Institute, with a view to the holding of a special night class for a limited number of returned soldiers wishing to train for municipal secretaries and other municipal positions. In a fit of despondency, brought on by failure to raise $100 with which to make good a svim he had stolen from his girl, with whom he had a quarrel, Henry Larsen, ot WUcox; Sask., swallowed carbolic acid while in an automobile with a provlnclB.1 constable and died as he reached the door of the hospital. The daylight saving. plan hag inflicted a loss of $6,000 on the electric li.ght and power department at Edmonton, according to the report for August. It is also shown that for the first time in a long period, the department has a deficit; the loss being $1,009. Women have been placed on an equality with men in all that affeetfi their, relations a.s laymen of the Methodist church. This was the unanimous de-, cision of the Methodist general con-j ference, but it was quite another question when the proposal to admit the aex to the ranks of probationers and ordained ministers of the church came up for ciiscussion. This subject was finally shelved for four years. Slate control of all the hospitals In Alberta Is looming up as a likely Issue ot the near future, and Hon. A. G. MacKay, minister of municipal affairs and public health, has come out strongly in favor of it. The govern-ment can hardly avoid the responrilbll-Ity of such a move, as he sees It, and he has also expressed himself In favor of the training Hohools being financed from state fund.s instead of the cities bearing the entire burden, as at present TUESDAY.

On the suggestion of the reeve a special Thanksgiving Borrioo was hastily arranged for 4 p.m. at the big hall. A record crowd, summoned mostly by telephone, taxed the capacity ot the building. Mr. J. Donovan, B.L., delivered a very spirited and eloquent "address in which he dwelt mainly on the pride and thankfulness with which Canadians should think ot the valorous deeds of our army in Flanders; contending, and quoting stacks of evidence to back up his assertion, that the Canadian soldiers have proved themselves to be adsolntely the bravest of all the brave allleB.

Mr. Malley preached a short sermon on "Why we should do away with war," expressing the hope in closlbg that after the termination of the present awful conflict "swords would be really turned into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks and that men should learn the art of war no more."
