At one place there they have advanced seven miles Into Rumania and are try- ng to roach the railhead at Kimpulung, miles northwest of Bucharest, ictweo'n which and the capital is a clear, fertile region ill adapted to de- fence. At the other passes, however, :hey are being held, and as long as successful resistance is continued! [here the threat at Kimpulung cannot make much headway. Aid from Kus- iln is urgently needed, because one jf Rumania's armies employed in the Trausylvanian enterprise was badly cut up, while a considerable quantity of Kims and stores was lost. Rumania's situation is not unlike that of Italy after Austria embarked; her ill-advised adventure in thei Trenti-o last Slimmer. In the early of the war Italy hod occupied the principal frontier passes on her, northern border and had advanced iu the direction of Trent. Deeming this gate to a Teutonic offensive barred she struck heavily against the Carnic and Julian Alps and along the Isonzo in the east. Austria last spring, how- over, developed a strong offensive in ____________ must last at least one year longer, so tte Trentino. She recovered tne far as the western front is concerned. I passe5i inflicted heavy losses in men This is the concensus of opinion not I a material on the Italian forces only of tie allied experts but or Uiu whidl had established themselves In- Germans as well. The Germans are concentrating their efforts on trans- forming every Tillage in the rear oE their lines into a fortress which Till require the heaviest artillery the al- lies can produce to batter them down. Thus it will be a question of wearing down defences, and now that the superiority of artllleiT rests with the allies, so victory will rest with them when the day of final exhaustion drags round. The British and French are slowly tightening their lines about Bapaume on the west Small advances are daily recorded, but the spectacular phase of the offensive in this theatre of war appears to have faded for the present The allies' chief efforts are being made at present in the Near East, on the Macedonian front and in Rumania, where the Rumanians have finally resumed tie offensive and are driving the Teutons back from Rumanian territory. The allies are still apprehensive ol the situation in Greece and are taking -greater precautions by landing con- siderable forces in Athens and taking complete control of the city. German money is flooding the city, and evi- dences of this are obtained in the fre- quent demonstrations against the al- side her frontier and advancing into Italy captured Asiago and Arsiero as the prelude to a movement on Vicenza and then upon Venice.' This develop- ment was a serious menace to Italy. 4 Teutonic sweep to the Adriatic would have trapped the Italian armies east of that line, which would have been a fatal blow. But to carry out the program Austria had rashly weak- ened -her Russian front, against which Brusiloff delivered his great stroke from which Austria has not recovered and indeed, cannot recover. Mean while the Austrlans who had advanced into Italy found themselves in danger of envelopment from the Italians and hastily retreated. Whether history in this Wet period will repeat itself in Rumania's case remains to be seen If it does we shall see that in orde to concentrate in Transylvania the Teutons exposed themselves to a vital blow on the western or eastern main front and that the army which is try- ing to reach Kimpulung in Rumanian territory has ventured too far for its own good.

Presl dent JIaruoch introduced the subject, mentioning the recent article in the Herald te'ling of the heavy shipments cleared through the local yards, and the editorial comment asking tho board to lend its support to the move- ment This, he said, the board of trade was glad to do, as the livestock business in the south Is vital to the future of the whole community. "We have already doubled the yards here this said Supt. Cotterell, of the C. P. R. In a few remarks, "and I hope we have to double them again. We talk a lot about mixed farming as tie salvation of the country. We want some mixed railroading, too, and we get that when we get live- stock to move when coal and wheat are slack. So far as the C. P. R. Is concerned, it is our policy to provide every facility for the livestock men In the marketing of their stock." Another important feature of the meeting was the pronouncement of Manager Kennedy of the Merchants Bank that all the banking institutions stood ready at any .time to help far- mers lu good standing to secure live- stock. They are glad to do it for they realize that the mixed farmer is the safe and sane farmer. Other speakers were W. H. Fairfield and S S. Dunham. The former dealt with the history of the'industry in the s'outh. He said that the farmers had been given In the past to going to extremes In their methods; either they were all for livestock or all for grain. But the preseal movement to- ward livestock is healthy. He believ- ed that Southern Alberta would in a short time be carrying more livestock EUUIL L1U1U UG than iu the days when all the land was cattle range. This is made pos- sible by reason of the fact that the small farmer carrying a few head of stock on his land raises a lot ol win- ter feed, which is essential in the success of the industry.

LETHBRIDGE BUSINESS ON UPWARD TREND Lethbridge bank clearings estab- lished a new record last week, com- ing within of the million dollar mark. There was no extraordinarily large pay day to boost the totaL There were no corner lot transactions mixed np in the figures nor any big deals in farm lands at inflated figures. It was tie result of steady day-by-day bnsi, ness such as tils city has never ex- perienced before. Soutiern Alberta is experiencing an era of prosperity such as it has never _fcefore enjoyed, and tie business being done is not of the boom variety. Lett- bridge is developing more rapidly along commercial lines than any other city in the west, proportionately. The business is growing. The volume of. grain business transacted Rumania's misadventure, however, has. deferred the determination of the real issue of the Balkan campaign, namely, the establishment of contact between Russia and the entente army now in Macedonia, although it may be found later that Rumania would not have been In a position to strike hard at Bulgaria in any case. The Teutons were bound to take prompt action to extricate Bulgaria from her critical predicament by an attempted invasion of Rumania from the north. Thus Rumania -would have been saved the losses she has since incurred she would have been compelled to main- ain the bulk of her forces on her northern front. The invasion of Bul- garia oa the south would appear to lave been Russia's business, no mat- er what might have happened. Nor s there any doubt that Russia is pre- paring for a tremendous campaign in he Balkans.
