Wolgast, former lightweight champion, is acting as hostler to a decrepit motor boat somewhere in the northern Wisconsin timber country, where he is trying to regain his health.

Mich. . In his letter advising friends of his espousal of industry, Woigast said he planned to go even farther into the woods for the winter and become a lumberjack. He hinted that he hoped through the strenuous life of a timber cutter to regain his health and return to the ring. This, however, is;considered unlikely. Woigast started his rins career in Milwaukee. He wrecked the champion-ahip dreams of a number of promising lightweights and finally was awarded a try at the title in 1910. Nelson and Woigast met at Point Richmond, Cal,. and their battle prdbably will remain CHIPIBOIRS HE HEAVIER AMOTOiVE Big Adjustment Among the Great Pugs is to Come After the War . ANDY.

The speeches by Mrs. Staines and other members were very short and to the point, and ail went home happy after the eventful evening. Influenza has spread during the past week, many new cases are reported each day. Dr. Kirk, the JI.H.O., places each home in quarantine when a case is reported. Saturday an order was issued that all should wear masks, and the Red Cross ladies took up the work and made masks for all who "wanted them. Just how long this order is for is not yet known. Very few cases have been reported from the country districts except the Mennonte colony south of Alacleod, where deathes occurred last week. Frank Davies, a member of the school board, and a C.P.R. conductor, was taken ii! with the 'Flu, and died Sunday morning. The body will be shipped east to Ontario for burial. His wife and children are ill with the same disease. Mrs. (Rev.) W. A. Lewis, who represented Alberta at the Women's Missionary Society in Toronto and Hamilton, returned Friday after having spent a very pleasant time, at the great ci)n-ferences held in these cities. Her husband is expected home during"the coming week. Members of the I. O.

Mr. Piez has made it plain that he disapproves of the kind of professionalism which has been thriving in the shipyards, and that if the men who deserted their teams last summer to accept lucrative positions in the shipyards wish to play baseball In their leisure hours thiey will have to do so for the love of the game. In other words the "Safety First" boys will hereafter receive just what they deserve. DRILLS 54 FEET IN LESS THAN EIGHT HOURS son.

"The terms of an armistice must he rigorous. Inir, must not be needlessly so." The ExiJie.s'.-. enumerating the latest occurrences in Germany, including tiie reply to President Wilson, exclaim*: "The Kign.s portend enough, pointing to a .speedy end of the nightmare and interest ins an appearance of the terms soon to be dictated." Don't Be Foolish The Daily Mail hopes and believes the allies "will not do anything so from present indications Germany's rulers are intent only on gaining time," ;The Times says: "There is no new viewpoint in the German reply except that it seeks rather crudely to impose upon President Wilson and the allies the initiation of proposals for an armistice. It is for the Germans to approach the naval and "military comraandors with the formal petition for a cessation ot war." Consider Disappearance of Kaiser Amsterdam, Oct. 2S.-President Wil-sqfl'a note to Germany was printed in the German newspapers on Thursday evening and on Friday morning. The Vossische Zeitung of Berlin printed the English text alongside the note in German. Many papers apparently contemplate without excessive lament the prospective disappearance of the Ho-heiizollern dynasty. The emperors abdication is again strongly rumored to be impending. It is noteworthy 4[iat the Frankfort Gazette hints at a Womlng "sacrifice" with comparative equanimity and both the Berlin and Frankfort stock exchanges showed an improved tendency as a result of President Wilson's note. Pears are not concealed that the entente conference at Paris will put forward demands "incompatible with German honor," but the anxiety to know the e.vact terms of the associated'governments puts everything else in the background. "Anger and shame are bad counsellors," says the Lokal Anzeiger of Berlin, which is content to leave the decision to the army leaders. It is a significant sign of the times that Prince Lichnowski's pamphlet hlam-ing the German gbvernment for starting the war and saying that England did everything to avert it, has been permitted to re-appear in Germany.

ProBress of the French French Army .Headquarters, Oct. 28. -Reuter's correspondent cables: "This evening Gen. Debeny's army, after three days and nights of incessant fighting, dislodged the enemy from the Hermann line, pursuing him to the next line a few miles north, intersected by streams, and here and there great patches of thick-set woods, admirably adapted to the purpose ot defensive warfare. Yet in three days we have covered as many miles in depth as in the same number of months last year. 1 should hesitate to say that Valenciennes has not yet I by now been forsaken by the enemy. \ "The 2nd army, in conjunction with i the French, made good progress yes- j terday and reached Moen and Heis-; tert, which are soutljeast of Courtral and upon the railway from Lille triangle to Ghent. The 5th army continues to encounter obstinate resistance toward Tournai. Scenes of intense activity everywhere are to be witnessed in the back areas of our ^advance. Labor battalions drawn from all quarters of the globe are at work strenuously making and mending roads, while eastward a 'flowing flood of lorries, troops, guns, wagons, and horses seem never ending. French Progress Paris, Oct. 27.-On the 40-mile front between the Oise and the Aisne the French maintained their pressure and on the left have made important gains, according to the official statement issued today by the war office. They have captured four villages between the Olse and the Serre.and along the Serre," have penetrated the enemy positions. Between Sissone and Cha-teau-Porclen, on Oct. 26, the French took more than 2,450 prisoners. A New Retreat Paris, Oct. 28.-Germany's armies have begun a new retreat, this time between the'Oise and the AJsne. Gen. Debenny's Ist army, in the face of gress is to force the enomy opposing the 10th and 5th French armies, exhausted by fnrttles.s counter-attacks, to begin a backward movement which is eventually bound to extend to the front before Rethel. This will open to the 4th army'a double passage of tile .\isnD anJ Ardennes canal. Gen. Debenny's" success was won by sheer hard fighting. The importance the enemy attached to stopping this passage up the Oise may be gathered from the fact that the Germans yesterday threw in"thVee fresh divisions, which, however, were knocked out. On Italian Front . Rome, ^ Oct. 27,-Heavy fighting took place Saturday in the Monte Grappa area, the ItaUang repulsing Austrian attacks, the war office reports day. The Italians captured 514 prisoners in this region. C0LW.H.1RRITT Toronto, Oct. 2C-Lieut.-Col. William Hamilton .Merritt, one of Toronto's best known and most philanthropic citizens, died here Sunday, a victim of influenza. He is survived by two sisters, both of whom reside in Toronto. Col. Merritt was best known for his activity in connection with aviation in Canada since the beginning of the war. I He was prekdet of the Aero Club of Canada at the outbreak of the war and has. been largely InstrumentaJ. in bringing the question of aviation, both military and otherwise in Canada, to its present state ot efficiency.

Bennett from Wrontham. ' ,1. VV. Evans, the secretary, will meet these gentlement for their finiil iu-structlona tonight at the town hall. The executive here feel It a ponder-' ous task to raise as ^much this year as it did last, besides tho amount apportioned it is 50 per cent, ^ore than last year, while the Lethbridge district's amount Is less. The Cardslou, Magrath and Raymond districts have been given $300,0000 to raise while the Lethbridge Victory district was given ?G00,000. This district will have to raise $30 each for every man, woman and child while the Lethbrijlge district will have to niise $24 each. Fiirthemore. Lethbridge is the centre industrially and commercially of this whole south country. ff\\Q men with large sheep and raMhlng interests live mostly in Leth; bridge. The wholesalers are there, the real estate men who minted money during the past year are there. are in the Lethbridge Victory Loan district 14 or more banks while in the Cardston, Magrath and Raymond districts only six. It seems that the Lethbridge chalrmau cut his own i ham, while these districts had their's aMced off and handed to them. It will be a,n easy matter for Lethbridge to earn the flag, while these districts have a ponderous task. Lethbridge will be able to boast of the amount oversubscribed while we wlU have to cower under the fact that wo^ have fallen short. The manager of the hank here stated "you're not half as well fixed as you were last year to buy bonds." H. S. Allen:: "We will do the best we can." J. W. Evans: "It's for Victory, not the flag we are working for." H. S. Allen suggested that the assess ment should have been based on the amount of the deposits iu the banks of each district.
