" (By the Associated Press) DRIVING NORTHWARD on an ever-widening front, the Serbian and Fronch forces in central Macedonia now menace the entiro Bulgarian position from the Adriatic to Saloniki. The cutting of the Uskub-Salonlki railway which is only nine miles from the new Serbian line, would upset completely the Bulgarian defense. Serbian Infantry is moving rapidly toward the highway frim Prllep to the Vardar river and eight miles southward parallel the road on a front of moro than 15 miles. At Drogojem, north of which the cavalry are operating, tho Serbs have advanced 20 miles from the Sokal positions, the capture of which precipitated the Bulgarian retirement. Tho formidable salient driven into the Bulgarian line is being extended rapidly. Additional villages have been captured. A largo number of prisoners has been added to the 5,000 already reported. Apparently the Bulgarian resistance is not very great and thero is no indication of where the enemy intends to make a stand. BRITISH AND GREEKS The British and Greeks continue their pressure around Lake Doiran an� the entire enemy front there must depend entirely on the Uskub railway for supplies and reinforcements. Successful continuation of the allied attack Is fraught with great possibilities. Turkish forces along the line from the Mediterranean sea to the Jordan, north of Jerusalem, appear to have suffered a serious defeat at the hands of the British and French armies. If the situation develops as favorably as the opening phases of the fighting, the Turks may suffer disaster. Attacking over a front 15 miles in length, the allies have virtually overrun the entire Turkish defensive system along the Mediterranean sea coast. Railroad junction have been taken and cavalry is operating in the rear of the Turkish forces. More than 3,000 prisoners have been captured by the allies, along with great quantities of war material. OPERATIONS IN FRANCE' It France, the British and French continue with success their operations looking toward the encircling of St. Quentin and the breaking of the Hinden-burg line between St. Quentin and Cambrai. On a front of three miles, the British today are smashing into the German main defense west of Lecatelet with the object of getting east of the section of the Scheldt canal between St. Quentin and Cambrai. The canal is less than two miles from the British lines east of Epehy. Near Bellenglise, Field Marshal Haig's men are also working toward the canal, which probably forms an Important part of the Hindenburg defenses in this region. Around Gauche wood, north of Epehy. the British have repulsed German attacks. SPAIN IS STILL NEGOTIATING WITH Paris, Sept. 21.-Negotiations between Madrid and Berlfr/ over the submarine question are not ended, says the correspondent of the Petit Parislen, but on the contrary, they are active and contain obstacles to an agreement. Germany has let it be understood that she would turn a few ships over to Spain and would not interfere with Spanish traffic toward AT THE EMPRESS METRO'S "DRAFT 258" IS PICTORIAL REVIEW OF NATION'S HISTORY. Metro's special production de luxe, "Draft 258," starring Mabel Taliaferro, which will be shown at the Empress next Tuesday and Wednes day, is a patriotic pageant of great scenes in the history of the United States. From the Battle of..Bunker Hill to a lawn fete of the present day for the benefit of the Red Cross, stirring scenes follow each other in this picture, the logical successor to "The Slacker," written and directed by the author-director of "The Slacker," William Christy � Cabanne. The Battle of San Juan Hill is vividly presented, with regular cavalry men of the army charging in the re-enacting of these scenes. The Battle of the Alamo, in the Mexican war, is shown in reproduction. With exactness of detail, the signing of the Declaration of Independence is pictured, with all the "original signers" portrayed by players chosen for their likeness to the different parts. In connection with "Draft 258," a motion picture camera was planted for the first time on Bedloe's Island for the purpose of taking pictures of the Statue of Liberty. "Draft 258" is a pictorial review of great events in American history. Tonight May McLaren in "The Model's Confession." Align the Civilized World Against Bolsheviki Rule Washington* Sept. 21.-In an effort to align the civilized world against the terrorism in Russia under Bolsheviki rule, the United States government has directed its ambassadors and ministers in neutral, as well as all allied countries, to ascertain whether the governments to which they are accredited will join in some immediate action to "impress upon the perpetrators of these crimes the aversion with which civilization regards their present wanton acts."  The proposal is to take steps entirely separate from the conduct of the war; that all civilized nations register their abhorrence of such barbarism. PEELING TN RUSSIA Amsterdam,. Sept. 21.-At a re- cent meeting of members of the Russian Duma and the Russian imperial council at Kiev it was resolved, says a telegram from that city, to issue an appeal to the public opinion of Europe and all governments to put an end to the Bolsheviki terror. The Ukrainian council^the dispatch adds, has decided to send a protest to all countries against the arrest and shooting of Ukrainian subjects in Russia and the "Inhuman" form of political struggle now existing. The appeal will ask the various governments to associate themselves with the protestants. The Ukrainian government also has decided to ask Germany to undertake the protection of Ukrainian Russia.

North West Biscuit Co. Edmonton UNITES Retina Saskatoon Vancouver AT. THE MAJESTIC "My Soldier Girl," the brilliant musical spectacle with a military atmosphere coming to the Majestic on Monday night, offers an interesting story just at this time that tends to create more than the ordinary interest in this musical play, for since the first performance the word success does not convey to the public the interest this musical play creates-the song, hits are new and have a swinging lingering melody in at least six of them that are fast becoming popular. The book is filled with clever wholesome comedy, with funny situations, never forgetting the interesting story that wends its way through the three acts with a military flavor. The three gorgeous settings offer pleasing scenic environment's-so .cleverly has the artist blended the colors that the result pleases the- eye and new and novel is the effect. The flash and blending of shades in the gorgeous, costumes puts the finishing touch to the artistic groupings  of the latest designs from the Modiste studios. The story is laid in three acts and four scenes, opening with a performance or final dress rehearsal of a musical extravaganza on the Roof Garden of the New York Theatre, changing to a southern home near the government aviation field, Miami, Fla., introducing a grand fete in the evening and the last act is a novelty in itself. The curtain rises on a tableaux representing a picture-after the battle-"Somewhere in Prance." AT STARLAND Jack Plpkford will be the star at Starland for the last time in the Paramount picture, "Huck and Tom" or "The Further Adventures of Tom Sawyer." This is the story of how Tom and his friend Huck Finn, in their efforts to ward off impending warts according to the.formula prescribed for them by a superstitious old darkey, discover real grave robbers and are witnesses to a sure 'nuff murder. The next day, having sworn each other to eternal secrecy, Tom is ill in bed, being dosed with the Painkiller, by Aunt Polly, while Huck creeps away too frightened to smoke his favorite ferns. The story from that point reaches a thrilling climax. The cast is excellent and Wm. D. Taylor was the director. ' An extremely funny two-reel Paramount-Sennett comedy "Watch Your Neighbor," completes a very flno program. LAST TIMES TONIGHT "WATCH YOUR NEIGHBOR" Two-Reel Paramount-8ennett Comedy JACK PICKFORD .

Commenting on the appointment, the Tageblatt of Berlin recalls that Admiral Behencke, when deputy chief of the admiralty staff, told the American naval attache at Berlin that although the staff was convinced the employment of U-boats would greatly influence the rapid conclusion of peace, regard must be paid neutral ships and human life aboard all mercantile vessels, whether under neutral or enemy flags. He is quoted as having said that the German admiralty staff did not wish to employ submarines in defiance of international law.

"I am eighty-three years old and I doctored for rheumatism ever since I came out of the army, over fifty years ago. Like many others, I spent money freely for so-called 'cures,' and I. have read about 'Uric A.cld' until I could almost taste it. I could not sleep nights or walk without pain; my hands were so sore and stiff I could not hold a pen. But now I am again in active business and can wu'.'.t with ease or write all day with comfort. Friends are surprised at the change." _ HOW IT HAPPENED. Mr. Ashelman. is only one of thousands who suffered for years, owln\, to the general AieUet in the old', false thsory that "Uric Acid" causes rheumatism. This er-cohpou* brlief induced him and legions of unfortunate men and women to taUe wrong treatments. You might just as well attempt to put out a fire." with oil as to try and get rid of your rheumatism, neuritis and like complaints, by taking treatment supposed to drive Uric Acid out of your blood and body. Many physicia"3 and scientists now know that Uric Acid never did, never can and never will cause rheumatism; that it is a natural and necessary constituent of the blood; that it Is found in every new-born babe, and that without it. we could not live! HOW OTHERS MAY BENEFIT FROM A GENEROUS GIFT. These statements may seem strange to some folks, because nearly all sufferers have all along been led to believe in the old "Uric Acid" humbug. It took Mr. Ashelman fifty years to find out this truth. He learned how to get rid of the true cause of his rheumatism, other disorders and recover his strength from "The Inner Mysteries," a remarkable book that is-H now being distributed free by an au* 1 thority who devoted over-twenty years to the scientific study of this trouble. If any reader of The Herald wishes a copy of this book that reveals startling facts, overlooked by doctors and scientists for centuries past, simply send a postcard or letter to H. P. Clearwater, 23-A Street Hallowell, Maine, and it .will be sent by return mail without any charge whatever. Send now! You may never get this opportunity again.
