THfe PROQRESS OF THE WAR. 'Serbian foK^es haije been heard from igaln for th6 first time, practically llace Germanj' overran the countrj'. Re-organized under allied direction, they have assumed an offensive on the Macedonian front, -with allied troops. They are making progress tgalnst the Balgariaos. 'On the .Lorraine front, tie Amerl-. eans are pressing forward for a cros-tlng of the Moselle river,- in spite of resistance from the Germans. The J&eticans have advanced about ten miles since the commencement of their drive, and have taken over 20,000 prisoners. The British  aje tightening tbelf lines about'St Quectin, and are^'^novr-moTlng-trp from, the northwest.- - CAN'T BLUFF THE ALLIES. Austria's peace soundings should not be heeded. They are merely Intended to slacken the allied offensive and enable -the barbarians to. catch their, breath and strengthen their resistance. Anstrta taffwi the sort of � peace the allies demand. If it sincerely desires peace then let it come ont'ia the open,-ieonfess'its'eins and fcccgpt the terji^s. Thoge teraia^ aire not''exacting; they simply demand that- democratic principle^ shall prevail-throui^hdij^beivprld. Anstpfa and Ger|nan^-'.-anftt^ijurtor' and Bulgaria needn'ft|^k*"ttat'"ihey d^'knif the Allies. Nations that have deluged the world with war, shed the blood of countless, thousands, combatants and son-combatants and resorted to all UnSs' of devilish practices, mnst be ' properly punished and forced to ao-epj the righteous terms of the victors.- Nothing else -will satisfy the world. Aa long as victory was theirs, thejtHuns kept boasting ultimate domination; now that they are being driv-n'back -we must not heed their cries . lorJ a fifty-fifty peace. It must be a l�mdred-per cent or nothing. LA"W BREAKERS AND THE OFFICERS OF THE LAW. There seems to be considerable dissatisfaction with the administration ot the. liquor laws in certain portions �f the province. Lax enforcement is charged by -responsible bodies. The ^tlW attorney general must give these eoinplainta serious consideration and Inreatigation. Inspired by a sltuatlon-In municipal circles - in Vancouver, brought about .by a recent murder in that city, fJie' Kamloops StandJiid-S�tl^el made this very sound obser-Tatlon: ' And tiit;: T#inf s this violation of ��mbllng''ind Hatlor laws dovm to the concrete jpi^irpbsltlon. Can such violations cohtli^ue -In any town -without the connivance of those in power? A child, or"eyen a novice, in affairs of this kind,',Jsnowfl full well that the police are-,not ignorant of any piiblte frrpngdoliig in their commualty within a reasonable time. This luis been demonetrated the last lew days -In Vaacouver. It has 'been demonstrated times "Without number throughout B. C. Continual violation of laws can be carried on only a short time, unless such %'lolatlons are with the permission of the police authorities. TVe are not saying that police authorities are directly responsible for liquor law infractions In this province, but it is only natural that where almost 'Wide open evasion of the law is evident, the poMce should be credited -with knowledge that the offenoa exists but refuse to deal with It IMPRESSIONS OUR CANADIAN ^MEN Canadian vromen have  played a wonderful part In war effort; they have certainly surpassed th^ stay-at-home men. Most of their work, however, has been confined to patriotic organizations, raising njoney'or working to provide comforts for the men overseas. It is a very necessary and a very valuable work and the soldiers appreciate it Nothing brings more cheer to the men in the trenches than the letters and parcels from the folks back home> They are a ray of sunshine In o life where many clouds gather. It is in providing these rays of sunshine that our women have won crowns of glory, Greater than all has been the sacrifice of loved ones, the only son, In hundreds ot cases, by the mothers of Canada, and don't \ let us forget also tbe giving up of the husbahd by the wife, and the father by the children. The sacrifice, indeed Is heavy but the consolation, it Is real! There is no nobler place to die today than In France. Do we get the vision, the meaning ot the struggle Do we realize that earth's greatest .heritage is in the balance and'that ciir boys are ^ing so that those who live may possess liberty and democradji? If liberty and democracy ^e worth more to us than servitude and autocracy then death to retain them has Its consolations for those who give up their loved ones. ' And then we havb brave women administering to the ^Ick and wounded at home, lii England, and id the Var zones. Theirs is a beautiful life of sacrifice. Far away from loved ones, they live to save and help, and cheer our -vrpunded soldiers. They may be ln->hospttal^as "most "of them ,a^eT-they may be packing .parcels tor the Red Gross or the prisoners of -war, they- may be engaged in V.A.D. work, j but In -whatever form of'service they are engaged, they are doing their "bit." Without them victory could hot be won or the occasional detea't borne with brave hearts. - -* PICKED UP m -* PASSING T^ '"^y The C. N. R.

The suggesion thct Vancouver Is-Jand should be called Quadra Island was advanced at a meeting of the Victoria Board of Trade. The matter came up following criticism of a,n article in an eastern financial paper which dealt with the pbsBlbiilties ot developing trade between Canada and Siberia, and alluded to Vancouver as the farthest port in Canada.

My wifo Is .dyln|| (Ki-om Our Own Ciorresponaont) Coaldale, Sept 16.-A steady strertm of Jour-horse teams were hauling loads j of fragrant baled hay into Coaldale. Our tall friend, Shemick .-was kept busy weighing and checking. Sudden; ly a man riished into his office. "Say! May 1 use your phone?"-he panted. "Sure," was tbe reply. The man seized the phone and rang for Central. No answer was forthcoming, however. He rang again, this time both long and loud, again he listened- in vain for a reply. Muttering an oath he twisted Uie handle in a manner to start even the most stubborn Ford car,'and. at last heard the operator say, "Number." The man repeated the number of a well known doctor, and felt relieved. His satlsfaetloti was short-llvod, however, for afte-r listening about ftve.mluutes no reply of any kind could be heard. Grinding his teeth ho again rang furiously for Central, and received the get a doctor,-but this Is useless." A fartiiei\i offered his car aiid !,qulO; ed out ot sight toward f � Tho Incident led to qhlte an animated dlacusKlon amonit '^tie |iys0nders. All agreed that th* .teloplnjine system at Coaldale %y\i\s sfnore o'*iai|ienta/l than useful. Eyprybprty if the district has Butierod' man^ thfligs at its h^nds, yet' TlothlnK I? .donw to mfend matters.- ; � V , _ . The talk led to Ji\6 diBfllission of othe'r local - nopAa, and; op^wtunities. It was asserl,ed that we ougm to have a telephone central at Coanlale, as telephones are expenslvo_,or|aments. At that moment the pastol of,the church came up., "Mr. ShenacH, can you cash a cheque fpr'JlOO;" hi asKed. "Can't do It," the popular hAr d.ealer realled. "Didn't know preachi's'ever had that niuch money," heladded. "Oh," said the pastor, "but y lu are in Coaldale now, remember, where hay is ?30 per totf." . f "I can't understand why we haven't a bank here anyway," a local mignate replied. "Every time wo want to do any business Ave are driven to Leth-brldge. � Now If we had our own bank here wo could get much better! treatment, and al the sftme'time the pVeach-er here could cash- his cheque 'whenever he needs to do so." Just then a man came In from Iron SpringB, "rWlsh the dbfiiaiile U.F.A. would get busy on the co-operntlve pie-yiitor quentlop," he 8�|d. "If. ive'.liac^ one hero we could g^t thoisaijno pricp^ and weights that nro given In Lethbrldgo." . "" "It's too bad that the Farmers' Elevator Co, ht^ve stopped building because of the price ot material," another man said. And sO thie cenyer-sation drifted along, and ^uched upon the school fair to be heliTph Septem ber 26th next. Everybody agreed that the Idea Is good. We hope that they will help it with their prei^ence and tlniE! also, dome and encourage tho children. j / . It was mentioned that thoi very/fine school building was a credit to the place and that It might be use'd still further for oommunlty purposes. " Reading rooms, billiard tablet; and smoking rooms might be initalled, so that all the social Hte of the community might be kept under pfopsr auspices. All these things were talked about: and then everybody got. Into their cars, went home, and did jidtUlng further about it - 1 TIDAt WAVE.

In that hour of anguish, every meads to recoyery is sought--the highest medical skill, trained nurses, costly treatment. Does the price matter? It may be so great as to stagger the imagination-a sum beyond the possible. But does anyone ask, *'Can we do it ? " Money or no money, they do 'it. And. somehow they pay. . It may mean doing without things . they think they need.^ It may -mean privations, sacrifices, hardships. They make unbelievable savings, they achieve the impossible, %ut they get the money to pay.
