TURKISH OFFICIAL Constantinople, Sept. 23,-r-Con-cerning operations in Palestine, the official statement today from the Turkish war office says: "On the Palestine front, rearguard fighting is being conducted with great skill. They are facilitating and permitting tbe accomplishment of our measures on both sides of the Jordan." Bolsheviki Repulsed Archangel, Segit. 18.-- (Associated Press).-In an attack against the American outposts south ot Archangel yesterday the Bolsheviki sustained a considerable loss. Eight dead were found in one heap in front of an advanced position and three other bodies were found in a forest. Most of the Bolsheviki dead were Letts. The fighting In this area is a combination of trench and Indian warfare. The trenches are along the railroad, but in the forest 37ejnimfng the trees aro tho only cover. The Russian railway employees are loyal to the allies. Fight for Vital Point With the British Army in France. Sept. 24.-The fighting for tho vital positions which hiiy'o defended the main Hindenburg lino oast of Epeby and Ronssoy continued yesterday and last night. No marked change in the situation resulted, but the advantage lay with the British. A vigorous local engagement is taking place today on the front nearly west of St. Quentin between Holnon and Fresnoy. Main interest, however, is centering on the Epehy-Honssoy sector, where the British, since Saturday have, by determined fighting, gain ed ground which is of greatest import ance and which captured documents show to be a vital part of the Hinden burg defenses that -was to bo held at all costs. The pressure which the British have established here is .obvious from a glance at the detailed maps. The great St. Quentin canal forms a strong natural defense for the enemy for a great distance in this sector, but just east of Ronssoy it runs underground for about three miles. In other words, there is a gap in the waterway defense here and it is this whicn the Germans have been defending desperately. In front of the canal along this gap the Hindenburg line has been made especially strong to protect the possible gateway. The British divisions which have been doing such magnificent work here have in front of them as opponents net only the famous German Alpine corps, but four The Day's War Summary another kiltie A POWElOTLDR^Of RAtEArfDLfMi 'JtueLLasHy f Wednesday-Thursday ALSO TWO REEL KEYSTONE COMEDY (By the Associated Press) / In Palestine, Macedonia and France the entente allied offensives progrosa successfully. Gen. Allenby's forces in Palestine have followed up their rout ot the Turkish forces with additional gains. In central Macedonia tho allies aro pressing vigorously tho advantages won and the difficulties of the Germans and Bulgarians are increasing. Field Marshal Haig has tulccn a new in his investment of St.. Quentin and is fighting toward its northern outskirts from east of Vermand. CAPTURE IMPORTANT SEAPORTS On the Mediterranean coast of Palestine, British cavalry lias occupied the ports of Haifa and Acre, marking an advance of moro than liu miles since tho present operation began. The rout nf the Turks west of the Jordan has compelled the Turks east of the river to retreat. They aro being pursued closely. Rz Salt has been reached and the allies are pushing north rapidly along the lledjaz railway. Gen. Allenby reports that the number of enemy troops captured will largely exceed 25,000. RETIRE ON 100-MILE FRONT IN MACEDONIA German and Bulgarian troops in Macedonia, their communication lines I almost entirely severed, are retiring on a 100-mile front. The allies have reached tho Vardar northeast of Monastlr on a front of more than ten miles I and Serbian forces have crossed to the east of the rivf^r in pursuit of the ! Bulgarians. On the left of the allied line, Italian and Serbian forces are j closing in on Prllep. Along the entire front the enemy is burning villages anil war material. By crossing the Vardar on a wide front south of Grodzko, 40 miles southeast of Uskub. the Serbians threaten tbe Germans and Bulgarians facing the British and Greeks around Lake Dolran. Around Prilep the forces of the central powers also are in a serious position and thoy may be cut off completely if the allies can press northwestward along the Vardar to Velc and Uskub. MORE QUIET ON THE WEST FRONT Fighting on the western front is not on as large a scale as last week. In addition to the thrust against the Gorman defenses cast of Vermand, Field Marshal Haig is improving his line at points to iht> northward and has repulsed a German attack west of Lecatelct. Northeast of Arras tho British stopped a German attack at Gavrelle, while in Flanders the British have regained part of their old positions at Voormezeelo. Activity on tho French front south of St. Quentin to the Aisne is confined to artillery duels. DISASTER THREATENS ENEMY IN EAST The disaster which threatens the Teutonic allies on tho Macedonian front is one which may change the entire complexion of affairs in the Balkans. There Is every reason to believe that the Turks in Palestine aro in a position similar to that in which the Teutonic forces in Macedonia find themselves. In the far east, the allies have been victorious over (lie Bolsheviki forces and Austro-German prisoners of war. Three Kilties in Mailed Casuflltf Lisfs Today-Oilier South Alberta Casualties more fresh divislops which the enemy has thrown in. With this force of enemy troops especially hard fighting occurred just east ot Ronssoy in a quadrilateral system of trenches, which the British captured. The German attacks here were continuous and heavy, but on each occasion they were repulsed with severe losses. Crush Turkey First Paris, Sept. 24.-Turkey and Bulgaria, says the Matin, in discussing the political importance of the reverses now being imposed on their armies, might be detached from Germany, but it will be through the victory of the allied armies and not by means of intrigues and concessions. It declares that the Turkish and Bulgarian governments would be actually happy to negotiate with the allies, but the entente cabinets believe they must first crush the military power of these countries. All Americans Out Washington, Sept. 24.-United States Consul-General Poole has arrived at Helsingfors from Moscow and is duo in Stockholm tomorrow. News that the consul-general had crossed the Finnish border in safoty reached the state department today in a message from Helsingfors dated Sept. 21. Upon its receipt Secretary Lansing disclosed that a week ago he ordered Mr. Poole, the last American official remaining at the Bolsheviki leave Russia. German Command to Blame London, Sept. 24.-The French newspapers emphasize that it is the German high command which has been beaten in Palestine and Mace donia, since Field Marshal von Sanders commanded the Turks in Palestine, while the Balkan front was under the direction of Gen. Sclotz and one of the defeated Bulgarian armies was commanded by Gen. von Steinhen. Apparently Scholtz ordered the Bulgarian retreat too late. His failure is calculated, the French critics point out, to embitter the German-Bulgarian relations. American Opinion of Victory. New York, Sept. 24.-The -British victory in Palestine is the leading feature in the morning newspapers. It is generally characterized as a brilliant feat of arms. The Sun editorially says the victory marks the end of the elaborately planned route to .India and the east.

It again urges a declaration of war by the United Stales against Turkey and Bulgaria so that the United States can get into the eastern battlefront. The World says the British success is one of the decisive victories of the war. The Times described Gen. Allenby'3 victory as "brilliant, admirable and complete," and concludes that with the allied fleets controlling the seas, a sudden surprise landing near Alepo would complete tho ruin of the Turkish forces in Syria. German Official Berlin, Sept. 24.-(via London) - On the front between Cambrai and St. Quentin. according to the war office statement today, the Germans have retaken trench sectors at two points and captured prisoners.

A recrudescence ot last spring's trouble may be expected. At a meeting of the retail merchants this morning it was decided that the stores should close at six o'clock every evening except Saturday, when they should be kept open until nine o'clock, and that the Wednesday half holiday which has been in effect during May. June, July, August and September should be eliminated. The new program is to go into effect, on October 1st so that tomorrow will see the last half holiday of the year. However, this program is by no means pleasing to the clerks and a general walkout may be expected on the first Saturday evening on which the new plan is put. into effect. "We want the letter of the Factory Act enforced," declared one of the clerks to the Herald. This would mean closiug at six o'clock every evening during tho week, unless arrangements were made for a divided shift on Saturdays, or unless the half holiday each week were continued. From what the Herald can learn it is the desire of the clerks to cut out the holiday and close each Saturday evening at six o'clock. The clerks point out that shortly the farmers will not depend on Saturday evening to do their trading,; and that therefore Saturday evening shopping is unnecessary. Recently the announcement was made from Edmonton that the department would consider keeping the stores open until nine o'clock on Saturday evening whether or not there is a weekly half holiday. This was to be a war measure, and was to cease after the war. Local clerks, however, want tho law as it stands on tho books enforced during the winter season, and they aro going to do all in their power to bring this about. The question therefore whether Lethbridge will be a "dark town" on Saturda}' nights this winter will bo settled witlrin the next few days. of grafting skin over a severe burn or acald is by (he Zam-Buk process. Zam-Buk contains herbal ingredients that literally grow new skin. How much safer, simpler and cheaper than the old method, which was by surgery! Mrs. George Currie, of 194 Waterloo Ave., Guelph, Ont., writes: "My baby sustained a very severe burn, and although he received medical attention for eight weeks, he got' very little better. Finally tho doctor told, me that skin would have to be grafted. " Meantime I had heard of Zam-BuV. and decided to try it first. This soothing balm soon drew out the inflammation, and in a short time I could notice, a great improvement. New skin began to form, and in three weeks' time the burn was quite healed over, without having to resort to surgery." . Zam-Buk is equally good for cuts and bruises, as well as for eczema, old sores, blood-poisoning and piles. All dealers or Zam-Buk Co., Toronto. 60c.
