But if Greek action toward par- ticipation in the "war on the side of the Franco-British Tillies is not taken tlie next ten days, it never will be. The German action in kidnapping part of the fourth Greek army at Ka- rala has produced a profound effect throughout the little kingdom, m ,tuc .-lu.uuny of the unoe in cuiuieuLiuu the royalist newspapers are said to enough away from Toronto one ulat The firm of Ira .Man- have demanded that action be taken recently to find himself in Fort with which institution tlie groom 1. .1 nnllnaotail fnf VPJITS alSO to punish Germany for this breach.

T., with which order the bride bad long been associated. Knox Presbyterian Sunday school sent a splendid gift, in appreciation of the services of the bride in connection had" been connected for years, also the entente supporters view so .much travel turned his head, and Germany's treachery as the last straw. It is said that Greece has sent a peremptory note, almost an ultima- tum, to Germany, demanding the re- turn of the soldiers. That Germany will accede to the demand there is good reason to question. Some Ger- man newspapers, after the coup, said it was a good stroke of business for It would mean so many less soldiers to fight against the central powers when Greece does declare war. So Germany evidently is expecting a 'declaration. Meanwhile affairs in the Balkans are moving well for the allies. The Rumanians claim success against the invading Bulgars in Dobrudj'a, while along the Macedonian trout the Bui- gars are being steadily driven back, especially on the front in the direction of Monastir. The Italians are also advancing in Albania. On the other fronts there have been few actions of great importance. The British, however, are driving forward their lines around Combles and the downfall of that point is inevitable. VOTE FOR FILTRATION BYLAW TOMORROW Tomorrow the ratepayers of the city go to the polls to decide finally whether Lethbridge shall have a filtra- tion plant That the verdict will be "Yes" we have no doubt. Otherwise it would be a. blot on the fair name of Lethbridge. Nothing advertises a city to its detriment to the visitor when he got back to his dear Toronto 16 wrote: "All through the freight yards of Fort William one sees wheat growing beside the railway tracks, due to the grain shaken out of the cars by switching." Vt'hen one considers how much of this waste wheat is eaten by birds and what a small proportion can germinate and grow the extent of the .oss by this means may be imagined. The Grain Trade of this country, be- cause of its careless and slapdash methods, reminds us of a fat old gen- tleman with egg stains on his white waistcoat." We wonder what poor, shocked "J. E. M." would have said last fall had he ventured even farther from his deskjn Toronto, far enough to see the the threshing machines spouting wheat on the ground on hundreds of Southern Alberta bushels in a pile, with not a thing over it to hide it from the cruel cold world. Or what he would have thought had he dropped into Foremost during the win- ter to see farmers shovelling golden into a pile 100 feet long, 30 feet wide and 15 feet high, right out in the open, with not even a board to keep out the weather. We take plea- sure in extending "J. E. M." a cordial invitation to visit Southern Alberta this Tall and learn how wheat is hand- led where wheat is grown in other than Ontario's ten acre seed plots. Just because we have progressed from "the way they do it in J. B. M. shouldn't be at such pains to criti- sent a handsome wedding gift. Miss Park was formerly in the em- ploy of 0. Hill, where she made a host of friends who will wish her the very best in life. The groom, an en- terprising young man, a member of the firm of Crowe Bros., and MacLeod, grocers, of Trail, is a very popular man locally, where, during his years of residence in this city, made friends innumerable. The happy couple left on the noon j train i'or Nelson and West Kootenay points where tlie honeymoon will he spent, after which they .will journey to Trail, where they will reside. II. A. Macdonald, the man who threw the monkey wrench in tils Bow- ser machine Thursday last, is in the city resting up after the hardest pol- itical fight ever wased in British Col- umbia. Mrs. Macdonald, who has been spending the past six weeks the guest of Mrs. (Dr.) King, will be leaving in the course of the next few days for her home in Vancouver, accompanied by Mr. Macdonald. Your Bath and Toilet IVORY Soap gives a rich, copious, smooth, creamy lather, yet rinses easily. Ivory Soap cleanses perfectly, yet does not irritate or injure anything it touches. These are the reasons why Ivory Soap should be used in your home for bath and toilet. SCENTS IVORY SOAP dS FLOAT5 Procter Gamble Factories in Hamilton, Canada more quickly than bad water. Nor is there any advertisement that hurts a city more than the fact, that it has its annual typhoid Lethbridge can remedy these dis- advantages by voting in favor of the 'expenditure of for the pro- posed filtration plant tomorrow. The money will be raised on the securit of unpaid taxes. With an era of pros perity assured, we may be sure a very- large proportion of tax arrears will Tie paid, and the filtration plant in- debtedness will be rapidly wiped out .without the need of adding to the city's .bonded indebtedness. Finan- cially' there is no obstacle in the way 'of a good supply of pure water. It should be noted, however, that the same rules as apply to ail mouey bylaws apply to the vote tomorrow. This means that there must be a two- tliirds majority of the burgesses qualified to vote, and burgesses to he qualified must be assessed on pro-j perty valued at ?400 or more on the I fast revised assessment roll. Under these conditions the voters who are anxious to have the fiftration plant built must exhibit their interest by going to the polls. Apathy may de- feat the bylaw. Nothing else can. cize our way-ward methods.
