Thib forces in Flanders have occupied SNeuve Chapelle. On the Vesle river Iront^e Americans are making steady iiprogress and the German .retirement conti^ttss. A lull in the lighting is iexpecied, due to the actoaKphysical iecedfeity- of slowing up'a bft.'Chieflr i| this , true of the_ armies before fCambrai, where a hard nut to crack 'lies-*efor6 them In the capture of that ~ ^y. The forces are now'practically jat the ^tes of this important centre, I'hut it will he some" days,'perhaps a ."Week or two before they will be abJe to fully effect-its-,joccupation. Dr. Beland was for four years a political pVtsos^er-Cf-'Waf" In German?-, and to him the liberty for which the allies are fighting has a very vital meaning. The Toronto Globe, commenting editorially on his address to the exhibiUon crowd at Toronto recently had this to say: "He spoke of the war, the one absorbing passion of his soul, the supreme concern of all civilization. He spoke ot the winning ot the war, the one purpose of his endeavor, tSie vital task of all loVers ot liberty. "His appeal was for consecration to war sen-Ice and for preparedness for the, problems which will confront the nation when victory has been achieved. It was earnest and, at times, gripping. Dr. Beland spoke with all the power and natural eloquence ot his race. But his most>telling, most dramatic sentences were those in which he reiterated his appeal-already made to his compatriots in his native province-^for Canadian-wide co-operation in war winning. It was I Canada's . struggle, even as it was | Belgluii's struggle, and the ITrified 1 States' struggle, for liberty was at' stake. -"You itten- ar� free-men: I have been a slave.' he exclaimed with profound feeling. 'You love freedom; I know what freedom means." And because he has himself experienced that from which civilization fights to be freed his burning words are steeped with meaning. There must be no German-made peace, declares Dr. Belaud, who knows what a German-made peace must mean. Henri Severin Beland has proved himself a great Canadian by serv-ice and sacrifice. And his patriotic work is not done. There is impetus and inspiration in his appeal. Those who heed his earnest w-ords will be-better -and nobler-men and women." ^PICKED^UP PASSING ^ TMBrn^ M*k m THE TASK OF ;THE A1V1ERICANS.

There have been 13 deaths at Chatham from typhoid fever since the epidemic started. Andrew Rodgers, formerly a drayman at Calgarj', died suddenly at Bragg Creek. Arthur Parkes was drowned In the bay while swimming at Beach Road Crossing, Hamilton, Ont Lieut. Roy McGiffen, the Toronto hockeyist, was killed whil^ acting as aviation instructor in a Texas camp. Mrs. Burroughs, wife' of Bert C. Burroughs, president of the F. C. Biir-roughs Furniture Co., at Toronto, is dead. . �. ^ Mrs. -Emmellne Pankhiirst," English militant suffrage leader, has been engaged as a speaker-for the -United States department of labor. Thomas Ring, one of the pioneers of the Treherne district, Manitoba, passed suddenly ,away after a two days' illness, at the age 6f 6S years. The awards In creamery butter at the Toronto National Eihibition'have goine mainly to Alberta and Manitoba, with Quebec a good second, and Ontario simply nowhere. At a largely attended meeting of the Women's Labor League an appeal ^was made for the" legalizing of "The' sale of light beer and wines in properly licensed hotels." Charged with bribery ot the Dominion police, in an attempt to secure e.\emption from military service for various clients, E. E. A, Jackson, a lawyer of Edmonton, was arrested at Red Deer. As tlie result of aviation tests made with recent graduates of a local institution for the deaf and- dumb (says a despatch from New York), it is thought possible that the War department may authorize the enrolment of deaf mutes in the flying service.

Within a few weeks^ the annual � Dry Farming Congress exposition will � ba held at .Kanaas City, Mo. A few years, ago. Southerly Alberta, for advertising purposes, took a great part in-this exposition. But since 1912, �when the big exhitfltlon was held bere, nothing much has been done, ^he war has Interefered, and for yarloUB other reasons our farmers have not been encouraged to exhibit their products in competition with ; the -world.
