McDonald and Pickup are Americans trained in England led the assault against the German forces entrenched on the eastern side of the Selle river ye.>!terday. They were faced by German marine divisions, which put up a hard fight. According to latest reports the allies are still gaining ground against the desperate resistance of the enemy. At one point the Germans delivered a counter-attack and momentarily gained ground, but the tanks passed over and beyond the high ground where the Germans were making their stand and quickly routed the enemy out of his trenches. Allied engineers, working under heavy machine gtm fire, placed bridges across the river and then the British an.i American infantry swept across. The tanks helped to keep down the enemy fire until the engineers had done their work and then went over with the infantry. fairly busy, perhaps on account of the fact that the district has had a scarcity of doctors since the removal of R. W. Lynn to Lethbridge. There are two nurses and a housekeeper enj-ployed const�ntly at the local, hospital, in which there 81*6 eight pat ients at the present time. This summer, petitions were forwarded to the government for the establishment of the Local Hospital Unit, and the peo pie of the district are curiously wait ing tor the establishment of this unit and for the erection of the hospital, and are wondering what the real delay on the part of the government is caused by. The local hospital board offered to sell the complete building and equipment tor $6,500.00 to the local unit. The equipment; consists of about $1,600.00 worth of furniture, operating room fixtures, etc., while the building and {and are valued at $6,500.00, so that in the purchase of these' premises from the local hospital board, who are contributing their services for the benefit of the community, the whole district would .effect a saving of some $1,500.00, and avoid the necessity of having to build a $20,000.00 hospital under these present trying taxation times. The local secretary-treasurer of the municipality Is experiencing considerable extra work on account of having to add to each parcel of land the extra one mill war tax requested by the government, or the minimum of 25c per individual assessment and the tax notices have been somewhat delayed on this account. It is hoped that the municipality will extend, for ttiis reason, the discount date to the 15th of November, as some people have only recently received their tax notice. A Near Fatality During the early hours of Sunday morning, when the celebration of the supposed peace was taking place at Cardston, excitement ran so high that a young man by the name of Robert F. Tagg, climbed one of the telephone poles, and threw a wire over the elee-trlc light wires, on which was to be suspended the Kaiser, who was to be used for a large bon-flre. Apparently the insulation had been worn off or burned off the electric wires, and the moment this wire touched the electric wire, a great flame shot up, and one half of the town was left In darkness. It is little short of a miracle that the young man was not electrocuted. He is however, apparently feeling none the worse for his "shocking" experience. Mrs. J. F.
