Buchinall tanaKlnf John Torranct Huslnwi thi ROUND THE CIRCLE Of THE WAR Some new developments are taking place on tile western front. Military observers say lhat the heavy artillery flchting which has been going on for the past few days, presages big offensive movement on the part of the Allies. It is believed that Lord Kitchener now has ihe bulk of his vast army in the field, and that ihe British and French are preparing for a forward move. Ths situation on the Russian front i? slightly improved toy the success attending the Russian defense the banks of the Dvina. Here Germans are making desperate ef- forts to cross in order to take posses- sion of important positions on the Petrograd road. The Russian forces hove retired to the north bank of the Dvina. and the Germans have cap- tured the bridge head at Friedrich- stad, but the indications are that the Russians will be able to successtully defend their Dvina lines on the Rus- sian side of the river. The situation in the -Balkans is still in an unsettled state. It is understood Roumania is prepared to take a stand against Germany in her efforts to force the passage of muni- tions to Turkey. an Ideal we should attempt to reach In our country .communities. It is' from the American Bank- er Farmer, and is approved by Jas.

I The 107th Regiment was out in uni- form this morning, ;and with.the Army Service boys, made the best showing that has yet been-seen here. The Fernie-Excelsior band and the bugle boys were out in full force and the crowd at the station was as large and as enthusiastic as at any time since the war began.

The earnings of Great Britain (eet adjacent. from her foreign and colonial invett- ments alone would enable her to carry on the war for a period of five years, according to Lloyd George, and so the norelty of a nation with gueh resources contemplating a loan irons a country which has always --been her debtor is most striking.

This compliment wlil doubtless be returned as soon as "Hy" and his troopers are allowed the use of a trench or two in Flanders, for the anti-kultur spirit is strong on Can- ,terbury Plain. So strong, is it, that I even the youngsters, knee-high j to a grasshopper are practising the arts of war.
