THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Germany's reply to President Wilson's last note, occupied most of the attention in yesterday's war developments. There is a fairly general agreement that the character of tlie note Is not likely to bring; the war to as early a conclusion as some people hod anticipated. There is n general Inclination to cut off nii kinds of negotiations and brine Germany to the stage where it must accept an uncon- j ditionat surrender and a dictated j peace. The. allies are making rapid progress in llelgium and in the last few-days have occupied some very strategical points. There Ik no evidence jet that the Germans aro preparing ! to make a stand. Well Informed opln-' loa is of the mind that the enemy is j hurrying back to its own soil as fast i as possible with the hope that it can j there make a better defence than It | can in occupied territory. 1; likely! anticipates that the morale of the soldiers will be improved once they have to fight to defend their own country. DO YOUR BIT, TOO. "St. George did not go out against the dragon like that divine calm youth In Carpacclo's picture, nor like that divine calm man in Donatello's statue. He went out, I think, after some taste of defeat, knowing that it was going to be bad, and that the dragon would breathe fire, and that very likely his sp;ar would break and thst lie wouldn't see his children igain, and people would call him a fool. He went out. I think, as the battalions of our men went out, a little trembling and n little sick and not knowing much about it, except that it had to be done, and then stood up to the dragon in the mud of that far land, and waited for him to come on. "I know my nation's faults as well as I know my own. They are th; faults of a set and a system. They are faults of head, not faults of heart, VVhen I think of those faults 1 think of a long graveyard in France, a hundred miles long, where simple, good, kind. Ignorant Englishmen by the thousand and the hundred thousand he In every attitude of r�st and agony, for ever and for ever. They did not know where Belgium is, nor what Germany is. nor even what England is. They were told that a great country had taken a little country by the throat, and that it was up to them to help, and they went out by the hundred and the hundred thousand and the million, on that word alone, and they stayed there, in the mud. to help th.->t 'ittle country, till they were killed." The story of world sacrifice Is told in these few lines by John Masefield. What audience, what reader, can hear them unmoved? "When I think of those faults I think of a long graveyard in France, a hundred miles long, where simple, good, kind, ignorant Englishmen by the thousand and the hundred thousand lie in every attitude of rest and agony, for ever and for ever and for ever." That sentence should be at the head of every appeal for war bonds, for It tells, too. the story of our Canadian lads.

Tho German pence note means nothing else, lt doesn't admit that it has been a sinner but it will he compelled to do so before tho war Is ended. All negotiations should cease. Germany must bo told that the price of peace is a Just and complete punishment, as well as a change In Its form of govern, ment. Germany doesn't seem to be in earnest. Of course it wants peace because it knows that it Is on the down grade and 1b going to be soundly whipped. It would like to bring a halt to the war now, but Germany's desires aro not of its own ordering at present It doesn't want to admit Us sins but on the other hand attempts to defend its course. It would be silly to settle with a nation when It was in that mind. Germany must have Ha eyes thoroughly opened before it will confess lis guilt. We must keep up the eys opening campaign. A Jew battles on its own soil will do a lot of good ia bringing Germany to tho penitent bench. Canada can assist In meting out tbe punishment by oversubscribing the Victory Loan and slamming tho enemy harder than ever. It is tho last heavy punches th ponemeut of the campaign.

'"T-liftT YOU MAY LEND CARRIED AWAY Are you among the thousands of men.and women who are carried away by the catalog habit? Is there anyone in your immediate family circle who is allowing this habit to run away with him. If so, there is work for you to do. This habit started more than forty years ago. It is this same habit that has stunted v^he growth of thousands of communities. It has built up a few enormously large cities at the expense of your town. Don't allow a habit like this to run away with you. Take the bit in your own teeth. Investigate for yourself. Find out. Talk it over with your home merchant. Get your heads together. That habit is hurting both. By killing this habit you benefit yourself, your children, your neighbors, your community. Spend your money at home.
