SE mmmE N mUkl FIG Went Through Amiens ahd Ar-fcis Battles Besides and Is Ready for More. AdlefiXi',�,i�K.-Adve^^t. With (he Canadian Forc.h in !'''rance. - (By J. F. B. LivpBay. Canadian Pres.9 Correspondent.)--Continuing his description of the riglit before Cam-brai Mr. Livesay i5uy.s: One difficulty in Ihi.'i night attack was in mopping up. whii;li roulti not be done until dayliglii and therefore until then garrisons were loft at. all points whence the enpniy might be expected to emerge from liugouts tor an attack on our rear. An entirely different task wa.' assigned to another brigade, which attacked at the same liour from a line southeast of Blecoun An Alherla battalion pushed ou( first, forming a iiank dnder cover nf which a Winnipeg battalion stormed Ramilies, capturing a number of prisoners, this operation being completed by three o'clock. This complete, the defensive nank was established for the fifth brigade, but when-da.vliglit came it developed that the enemy was not putting up a light as we anticipated. This advantage was. therefore, pressed home. Alberta aurt Vancouver battalions attacked.due north, thus taking in the flaiiK over the bitterly contested bntilefleld of the previoiiK week and- captured in succession Ble-court, Banligny. Guvlller.': and Bs-wars, all of which had been occupied by noon. Ahnnoourt wa.s taken by a British division, which has been doing sterling work alongside the British corp^ Not content with these successes, the Canadian second division on the following days changed its frontal attack to the northeast and captured the villages of Haves, Thun, Leveq and Thun-St. Marin. A third brigade, .consisting of Ontario troops, coming into line, was heavily counter-attacked by the enemy, hut was beaten back. This- was on Friday and on Saturday two brigades went in to assault the enemy stronghold of I\vuy, which was protected In front by a flooded area and massed machine guns. To a Saskatchewan battalion was entrusted the operation of .storming the village and for this purpose on the previous night it marched across our right flank and at dawn had worked round to the southeast, whence its atCack was delivered. Although confronted with the hardest piece of fighting of its history, the battalion was not to be denied and within half an hour was in full possession, though, for hours more, bitter hand-to-hand lighting was required before the enemy machine guus wore 'taken. The day saw many gallant deods, biit none more striking than those of a lieuteniint who comes from Saskatoon and who, entirely unaided, captured five machine guns after killing the crews. On Siuiday, a Montreal battalion, supported on the right by a British division, attai-keil ' north capturing Hordain and then pushed on to the outskirts of Bouchain, where the lake and marshes practically puts a stop to Iheao operations until further progress is made by our troops working south of Douai. Such, in brief, is the record during the present operation of the Canadian second division. This fine division was in the line constantly last spring and summer when our other divisions wet-c in reserve preparing for our fail campaign for three months. Part of the GO corps held the Arras front, where it.established a record of 45 successful raids'in o few days and eliminated two enemy divisions, rejoining the Canadian corps in the middle of July. It went through both the Amiens and Arras battles but notwithstanding this hard fighting is still imbued -with victory as recent events have demonstrated.

DEALING WITH INFLIJENZA i In the matter of prevention in the pre,seut epidemic. Dr. DeVeber. Medical Health Officer, quotes the follow-' ing from the Provincial Health Bulletin - The sources of infection are undoubtedly secretion.? from the nose, throat .and lungs ot cases or carriers, and the mode of transmission is by direct or indirect conveyance of these secretions by droplet infection, or by means of handkerchiefs, towels, eating utensils, etc. The discharges from the mouth throat, aud nose sliould be destroyed either by antiseptics or by burning.

C, issued September 27 last, tho following appeared: "Crowded oflicos and particularly street cars, are potent factors in the .spread of the disease. In Berlin the j street car conductors showed an ex- ] ceptiouaily high incidence. The avoid-! ance of street cars, and of crowds, where possible, is therel'orc to be urged during an epidemic, although the disease is too mild to make it advisable to stop all the activities ot a city. To prevent the transportation or the iufiuenzai virus to the wftii and possible causes of complications to the sick, masks for sick-room attendants are advisable. The .oi;ganism is probably short iived outside fbe body, and attention should be directed toward keeping people apart raiher than toward the disinfection of things, ^side fi'om the precautions of general cleanliness. The spread of streptococcus pneumonia in mllitaiV camps, and the fear that with the advent of cool wea- ther severe pulmonary complicationi will follow Influenzal attacks more fro quently than during the past summer, indicate the mgent need for the adopyas a relative ot Lady Currie a'.id one of six sons serving, three of whojn have been killed in action. ALBERTA APPEAL DISMISSED 1/ondon. Oct. 17.~The privy council has dismissed tlUe itjjpeal of the Canada Foundry company versus the }Sdmonton Portland Cement company concerning a daiih i'i connection with Gas and wind in the stomach accompanied by that full, bloatea feeling after eating are almost certain evidence of the presence of excessive hydrochloric acid in the stomach, creating so-called "acid indigestion." Acid stomach.'j are dangerous because too much acid Irritates the delicate lining of the stomach, oftqu leading to gastritis accompanied by serious stomacli ulcers. Pood ferments and sours, creating the distressing gas which distends the stomach and hampers the normal functions of the vital internal organs, often affecting the heart. It is the worst of tolly to neglect such a serious condition or lo treat with ordinary digestive aids which have no neutralizing effect on the stomach acids. Instead get from any druggist a few ounces of Bisurated Magnesia and take a (easpoonful fn a quartei' glass of water right after eating. This .will drive tho gas, wind and bloat right out of the body, sweof-eu tlie stomach, neutralize the excess acid and prevent its formation and there is no sourness or pain. Bisurated Magnesia (in powder or tablet form-never liquid or milk") is harmless to the stomach, inexpensive to take and the heat form of magnesia for stomach purposes. It is used by tiiousands of people who enjoy their meals with no move fear of indigestion.-Advertisement. LEMON JUICE WHITENS SKIN Girls!
