This means that they have reduced the front by about (twenty miles- The British, in their capture ot Hev-Wncourt, have established another . menace to the safety of Cambrai, and , are now working up from the southwest towards that city. The Germans are putting up the most desperate re-Bistante, but without much success. The British are steadily progressing. From the French front, there is Botiing new today. iPUTTlNG IDLE LAND UNDER CULTIVATION. It is gratifying to read that the. Dominion government Is considering a proposal to expropriate idle lands now beld by speculators. Thousands of IBcres of such laud, close to our railroads, could be brought i-nder culti-yation, if there is to be a proper development of our nfitnral resDurces. (Very little of our. homestead lands are left. Those that are available ' are in sections of the west far away from transportation facilities. Soldiers' settlpment upon the land.is an Important problem^ "Farms will not attract the soldiers, unless they are Mi!Hje;^to rajlroads %ttd'to:.:Bettled 'pom-"�anunities. It is only by acquiring the idle lands, held by speculators, that :we cgn expect to solve this uroblem. �^^ It may appear at first glance to be ^ .ia heavy financial undertaldng but if jliandled judiciously we think that iphase- of the question, need not con-:cem . us too much. The government � ^conld take over;tie land at an. arbl-pirated value and arrange for pay-anents  over probably twenty years. ,ilt could then turn around and dispose sof this land to an actual farmer, on ithe same terms. The farmer's annual  ^layment on the land acquired would tneet the obligation to the speculator fend at the end of twenty years the 'larmer would own the land outright >nd the speculator would be paid off. The government would merely stand ^ ibehind the deal, as an endorser^ I Should the Dominion govemnient succeed in acquiring the undeveid^ied V land in Western Canada, it will have ~ conferred a benefit upon the whole . country and 'solved the land 'settle-^^inent and transportation problems for : taany years to come. IMPRESSIONS WHAT BRITAIN -HAS DONE ' Hon.' Dr. Beiand haa a wonderful jBtory to tell: He had almost four jyears' experience as a. war prlaoner In Germany. Lethbridge is favored In having a visit from this distinguished Canadian. ^ . -. , Hon. Mr. and Mrs. Arthur i. SUtoif, ct Calgary,' are expected'-ln th� city � In a few days. Just a Apclal item from the Ottawa Free Press of one day last week. Bvl-' dently the Minister ot Cuatoms is ' Btill a sphinx for he was In Ottawa at the time the item appeared and has ' aot been out of the capital all summer. The Toronto News prints an article on "The Popularity of the Bagpipes." And then the OriUia Packet says: - "Now a step or two farther, and lot \is have a dissertation- on the 'Popularity of the Grermans."" "The Popu-� s'larity of the Packet" will be In ques-tion now with the Scotch, who will be .'i'^orrifiad t^ have the dear old bag-r pipes associated with the Kaiser. The Grain Growers' Guide .sizes up /^Alberta's premier very accurately ^^hen It says: Mr. Ste\?:^rti^..a practical and : 'iiard-headed' farineri who "by the prb-'�'.sess of S61ecti *tirp nai *4on ei-auirav and ell chat lotift tptUI^- T7t�*� -or* wMa* aow la What has Britain done In the wart W^e might rest its case on the statement that It has contributed 900,000 liveE and ?1,610,500,000 in loans to allied nations, in addition to bearing the great expense of its own part in the war. There is nothing to apologia about in those figures. A poenj contributed by F. B. Hod-gins, appeared in the New York Herald. It's tiUe was "What Has Britain Done." Here it Is: "What has Britain done? Kept the faith and fought the fight for the everlasting right; Chivalrously couched her lance In defence of Belgium, France, This has Britain done What has Britain done? Given every seventh son. Met the challenge of the Hun; Placed her men on every Held; Proud to die, too proud to yield. ThU has Britain done! What has Britain donoT Answers every far-flung breese Blown across the Seven Seas:- "Watch and ward secure we keep Vigilance that' never sleeps." This has Britain done! "VVTiat has Brttain done? On every front, her flag unfurled. Fought a world-war round the world; Then, when all is said and done, Ask her allies, ask the Hun, "What has Britain done?" What has Britain done? For her slain Britannia weeps- She might boast who silence keeps. But, when all is 4one and^ said. Call the' roll and count'her dead, Aud'lmow what she iiad doRO,  Britain has' doae  all fiiat-and more. Over here we occasionally run across the critic who doubts whether Britain is doing its utmost or not. Hia doubt would be quickly removed were he to visit Britain. His eyes wiiuld be opened _and he would soon trajisfer his activities Irom a critic to a booster. England is s'low, we - have been told. Well the slowness characteristic of Britain is a mighty good ^ind of slowness for it is gettiiig things done on a big scale. England had a small army In 1914. She has raised an army of six or seven million since. Lloyd George in ^ a notable speech In" July said:-"It"the United States of America were to call to the ^colors th�:^wSvimiiniber ot'inea in pteen disastrous, but a sea offensive .would be decisive. Thla Is what Jhs British navy has prevented. "Unless the Allies had been completely triumphant from the outbreak of the war at sea, no effort on land could have saved us," declared Lloyd George,in the speech mentioned. Britain ran short of guns and munitions early In the war. It was then Lloyd George forged to the front Britain won't run short again. She may have been a little slow then but she has speeded up since and all over Britain, In city, town and village, there are mnnitlon factories, and great factoriss, -bars guns large and small are being made; Men and women are on the job everywhere and Tommy knows now he will n^ver run ehort of shells or gune becf�ae nearly every other person is engaged in making them for him -back at Itome. � It 14 an oft used expression buT 11 is very apt in this Instance "Britain is a hive of industry." Take airplanes as an instance. They are ^making.them .almost everywhere, and 'it is a safe guess that there will be a fleet of planes, bigger than the world hftB yet known, bombing tlie heart but of Germany'before 191S has passed Into oblivion.

Then let us look at the land, It is really astonishing, thg crops that one seos all over England and Scotland. Land that had never been used;- except for pasture, is today yielding big crops of g?aln, Wa.ara told .that 'Britain has raised enough' this year to almost" feed itself for twelve months - a remarkable achievement. One might go on for columns enumerating Britain's war effort. The war has revolutionized British industry. Things that were considered impossible of achievement, havi^ been achieved. The so-called- decrepit na;^ tion, v.orn out and exhausted, is among the most resourceful uations of the world. She has overcome the seemingly impossible. Sho has organised the unskilled and made them skilled, she has done Innumerable wonderful things. She no longer depends upon Gernjany industrially. The -n-ar has freed her from that dependence. Tinfoil is now made there. Dyes are on a commercial basis. Color printing has experienced a renaissance, Delicate,pottery and china ornaments are produced, and delicate scientific instruments no longer bear the stamp "Made in Germany." Twine and many,heavy fabrics, such as stair carpets, sacks, verandah curtains, very substantial and pleasing, are made of paper. Artificial silk is shown in bewildering variety of shades and forms. Go up to Edinburgh and you will ride in a bus driven by coal gao in balloons in order to save petrol. Oh yes! Britain is old but she is not too old to learn to achieve.
