In this district is, evi- dently, the elbow of the enemy's line which may 'be said to bo continued in a i'.oncave curve to nisst its advanced portion through Belgium. Taking it that Courtrai is now occupied by the 'Allies, the bulge of this curve would la outside the town easterly, proceed- ing northwesterly towards Oatead. The Allies' risht line, as we read it, Extends westerly to above Dunkirk.' 'As in the earlier stages of the battles the importance of the result rests on this field of the conflict, and here we may take it are tha bulk of thB Bri- tish--troops acting -with the Freach end the Belgians. The news of the re-occupation of Ostend by the Allies has yet to be corroborated. But it -will "be no sur- prise to find that the enemy has evacuated the town through the ten- sion near Arras. Ostend at any rate be untenable, with units of the fleet-at striking distance, and be of no use to the enemy un- less he was la a position to mount his heavy siege guns. This we may be sure will not be allowed him by the British .warships. BLACK AND WHITE SCOTCH WHISKY is all perfectly blen- ded and thor- oughly aged. D. O.

Then why shouW the Hlginbotu- ama be expected to sell their 6plnions e a, brother is postmaster? Yet such balderdash is put forward by ap- parently sensible men. Evidently har- rovr political conceptions have warped their minds. A correspondent refers to this ei- ouse offered toy the "local patronage committee as follows: "In connection with this latest local atrocity, there is a street it is almost too base to that the stroke of the axe was aimed at the brother of the postmaster whose aw- A TIP TO THE.

In order that the Commission- en may have this fact brought to their attention the Herald is con- atmined to make the statement. The feeling la not limited to a few grouch- ers but ezista amongst all classes of the community. We know that Mayor Hardie has persisted in declaring that eipenses. reduced to lowest possible point Probslbly he as a private citizen, and a British sub- ject, he exercised his prerogative in being attached to a party which is opposed to" the present powers that be; yet in this 'Land of innocent must suffer with the guil- ty Two years" or more before Christ even the oldest record- ed law stated that 'a son must not suffer for the sins of his-father, nor the father for the son.'

Back in 1911 the men who now adopt the "spoils system" berated everything No. American methods -of any kind for them; Tet today they adopt the "spoils system" ruthlessly and without yes, there is one reason. "Lethbridge is a Tory' city and no Gnt can hold an office." They tell as that the Grits did. the same thing: when they were in power. Such is not ihe case In this district!
