The advance pierced the last of the German permanent lines which ihe Huns had boasted as being Impregnable. The taking of Me. Si. Qnentin. Combles and Peronne are the next moves on the west front unless the Germans retire to the prepared Douai-Canibral-Loou line, giving back to the French many miles of territory without further struggle. There is a dearth of news from the .Russian front where the Czar's forces seem to be content for the meantime to hold the Teutons busy, while .the Balkan campaign is being got under way. It is important to note that the Rumanians have sent their noted Gen- sral Aversco, whose Transylvanian campaign has been such a from the latter front to the Dobrndja front Yesterday's dispatches indicate that his arrival has resulted in a" check for the German-Bulgarian forces operating in that area.

OUR FARMERS ARE MAKING "HOMES" NOW Southern Alberta farmers are instal- ling electric lights in their farm aomes. They are building better homes and equipping them with fur- naces. They are going after better prater supplies. These improvements are signs of the times. The farmers are prosper- ous, but instead of sinking their sur- plus capital in more land they are im- proving the land they have and paying off their debts. The fanner in this country who has his land all paid tor, who has a nice comfortable home and. some is a mighty desirable citi- zen, and u fortunate one too.

C. electors. It was a most emphatic verdict. The result expresses the gust of the people of British Columbia with a corrupt, reckless, extravagant administratfoa. It wants hcnest, pro- gressive, business conduct of its af- fairs. Mr. Brewster and the Liberal party have been given the confidence of the people with the earnest expec- tation that they will meet their antici pations. Mr. Brewster is a successful Business man with an honorable prd. Ke gave definite assurance of a complete change in the character of the administration from which British Columbia has suffered for the last dozen years. He will carry out his promises. British Columbia will reap pie benefit and will .not regret tday if transferred its allegiance frbm Bowser to Brewster.- The victory was due largely to the fearless' attitude taken by prominent Conservatives who took the platform and1 opposed the Conservative government. The victory is a victory of. the people; aver a vicious political machine that was as bad as Tammany Hall in its methods. It was a victory for'honest government. It rests with Mr. Brew- ster whether the Liberal party remains in power for a long period or hot. If be carries out the progressive piat- iorm enunciated by the Liberal party, British Columbia will be BO completely regenerated that opposition would 'be1 fruitless. We are sure, knowing Mr. Brewster's Integrity and high prin- ciples, that every.plank of the plat form will be put Into effect. There Is hardly any likelihood that the" soldiers' rote will materially Sect the result.

Successful Convention The Mutual Improvement Associa- tions, both Young Ladies' and Young MRP'S; have just completed a most suc- cessful convention held Sunday and Monday last. A great impetus was given the work through'the visit uf Mr. -O scar Kirk-, lian'i for the- young men, the energetic travelling secretary of this organiza- tion, "Ann M. Cannon of the Young Ladies' Board, gave the needed, help for the sisters. Both have pleating recollections of their conven- tion work here two years ago, when the physical or outdoor activities and the social work came into new favor, through their efficient labors. The impressions made then were, evidently lasting as this -year .every ward was represented at the roll'call on Sunday morning. On Monday, too, there was a good- attendance and most of the wards were represented of the eleven near Cardston. As a fitting close to their stay here President Wood assisted by J. Walter Low and J. E. Harris made a rim to the Watcrton Lakes with two cars to- day, that our visitors might know of the beauty of tbe park country as well as have them see the products of the range that linos the road from the tplly to the Waterton River. Elevator Nearly Completed The new Pioneer elevator is nearing completion and is a much needed ad- dition to the storage facilities at this point This company already has one smaller- elevator here and the new on.o of some bushels capacity will enable them to do a greatly increased business at this point.

There was very lit- tle west- and cars were running at Mt. View this morning. The Milk River Ridge to the east of us is white this morning, and it is feared the Me- country has suffered se verely from the storm. The mercury barely reached the freezing point, and the" corn and beans -were not injured this morning. If the frost keeps off tonight there will be no damage ex- cept to lodge some of the heavier grain uncut.
