Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25v1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY IIERALD ' PAGE SEVEN AWFUL TOLL AUSTRIANS IN THE PIAVE DEFEAT 1�aris, Sept '24.-How the Austrian ioffonsive along the Plavo river waB stopped was described today by I he Duke of iAosta, commander at ;lie third Italian army, which wus located soitth of the Montollo plateau during the fighting, in an interview with the editor of the Matin. He said: "We had to deal with an enemy who had prepared\Gverythlng very'minutely hut we were forewarned. I did 'not have a moment's uneasiness. "When, 1 let him advance across iho Piave on certain fronts as far as Mon* astrio and then ho was" just where I wanted him, our batteries opened up a concentrated fire.. The Austrian i �will long remember It. The next day, 1 viewed the battlefield. God knows I saw massacres during the three years I 'fought on the' terrible Carso plain, but my eyes never beforo gazed on such a spectacle." Must Be No Stopping. Discussing the war situation asi a "Whole, the duke said: "What tho allied troops are doing against tho 'German army fills me with admiration and wonder. I freely admit that I never believed this vast offensive would be possible beforo noxtspring. That it could be launched this year in the middlo of tho German attack and lead to such victories is a marvel and also is proof that for Marajuil Foch, tho problem of ro-. serves has ceased to ho a caro. "Re reserves: The whole question Ijes there. If one is certain of beings able to reinforce ami relievo tho troops engaged while the action Is proceeding, one can boldly embark on no matter what operation; "But," continued the duke, "now tha^ we have the upper hand there must be no stopping. We must beat them completely. We owe it to ourselves. On our front, also, tho enemy has revealed himself to be inspired by savage barbarity. Tho air attacks on our open towns, the" slavery imposed upon the population'of the invaded territory and a. hundred other revelations of his infamy have awakened in all Italian hearts tho ancestral hate for the oppressor of our race." PRICE PUT PAPERS OUT OF BUSINESS far more effective than Sticky( Fly Catchers. Clean to handle. Sold by Druggists anti Grocers everywhere. Ottawa, Se^t. 23.-Commissioner A. Pringle continued the newsprint inquiry this afternoon with an investigation of the costs of the Fort Frances mills. It was fihown that tho June coBts of these western mills was $64.96 a ton after a-deduction of $2.00 a ton had been made for legal expenses at Washington and Ottawa. The average cost per ton for the first seven ! rnontha of the present year worked out at about $62.84 and the estimated cost for nine months was about $61.00. In addition to this, the increase in freight rates, approximating $3.50 a ton, must be taken into consideration. A separate price for the Fort Frances mill will likely be sets Mr. Pringle intimated, and the price may be substantially advanced. ~"It may be as high as $80 a ton and if it is 1 do not see how the western press is going to survive.;' Evidence �as to the amount of capital invested in some of the mills will be gone into this afternoon. The proceedings resume at 2:30 and may continue tomorrow. CONSTANT PAIN AFTER EATING The Tortures pf Dyspepsia Corrected by "Fruit-a-tives" St. Mjuwin's, N.B, , "For two years, I suffered tortures from Severe Dyspepsia. I hud constant pains after eating; pains down tho sides and back ; and hoirible bitter stuff often came up in my mouth. I tried doctors, but they did not-help me. But as soon as I started taking 'FriM-a-livcs', I began to improve and this medicine, made of fruit juices, relieved me when everything else failed." MRS. HUDSON MARSHBANK.

London, Sept. 24.-Parts of the London district served by the Great Northern railway were affected by the spread of the railway strike this morning. Few trains arrived at the Paddington station, which is almost deserted. Passengers on local lines had to seek transportation on tram-cars and electric trains to get into the city. The service on the North London railway was suspended in consequence of the strike of the drivers. It- is feared that trouble will seriously in terfere with the transportation of goods, this line having traffic ar rangements with other railways serving the docks. Arthur Henderson, British Labor Leader is Clear on That Point-Reply to Hun Offer London, Sept. 24.-"It cannot be made too clear that. British labor has long since placed Belgium outside the category of quonUons upon which there can be cither negotiations or compromise and regards the question of Alsace-Lorraine as essentially one of right and not of territorial re-ad justment," said Arthur Henderson the British Labor party leader, i% an interview. His statement was called out by a quoted suggestion from Herr Ebert, the German majority Socialist leader, that all labor and Socialist interests ought to try to reach an under standing on a common peace agree ment. "This is-exactly what we have been asking German majority Socialists /to do since February," added Mr. Hen derson, "and we regret that so far we have' not had from them the measure of assistance wo were entitled while the existence, of the infamous treaties o� Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest have created new and almost insuperable obstacles to a peace of understanding on international principles."

LIMITED POUUIINE FOI CRANKSHAFT BEARINGS IN NORTH RUSSIA Archangel, Sept. 20.-(Associated Press).-Col. Boris Androvitsch Dur-off today became governor-general of the region of tho north, succeeding tho Tschaikovsky government. The new governor-general is responsible to the new central government formed at.Samara and which is under the leadership of Gen. Alexieff, former Russian commander-in-chief, M. Avs-kentieff, minister of agriculture in the Kerensky cabinet, and M. Setana-ponoff. The Tschaikovsky government decided to abdicate when it learned of the formation of the central government and in view of the fact that the northern region is small and could be better administered by a governoivgen-eral. Col. Duroff formerly commanded the Russian forces at Saloniki. He is to be charged with the care of all civil and Russian military affairs in the northern region. One great bar to the practice of thrift to-day-is the tendency to let others set for us our standards of living. TRIED IB STEAL MRS. Jones appears on the street in a new gown and at once her neighbour / vow3 she'll have one like it. Or if a new motor car is delivered to a certain home, a nearby family, not to be handicapped in the social race, plan to discard their old car for a new one. And so it goes from one thing to another-a ceaseless, senseless competition which often ends in debts, distress and disaster. Such silly rivalry is bad enough indeed in normal periods. It is positively unpatriotic in times like these when the country needs all available labor and material and every available dollar with which to carry on the war. S It is perhaps difficult for us to appreciate that the purchase of things we do not really need may be the direct cause of loss of life on the firing lines. But you can't escape the fact, no matter how unpleasant the thought, that millions of in-' dividual selfish demands at home may prolong the war by causing a shortage of the very things essential to our success at the front.. For the money we spend in satisfying these desires represents equipment, clothing, sh6t and shell that are so urgently needed for our boys in France.r New York, Sept. 24.-Three men are held today on a charge of grand larceny after being caught, according to the police, in the act of substituting stones and rubbish for a ?50,000 consignment of hosiery being ship-to Buenos Ayres. Eleven big boxes of socks entrusted to a driver by the Block Forwarding company for delivery at a New York pier, the police said, were taken instead to an empty house in Brooklyn, where the driver was joined by two other men who aided him in moving them � into the house. A patrolman, suspicious at this sudden industry at an unpecupied dwelling, summoned detectives to help him solve the mystery. Peering through a window, the detectives found the men unpacking the hosiery-about 9000 pair-and replacing them with stones and rubbislj. As they nailed down the lid of the last packing case, the detectives broke in and arrested them. Remember that foolishly in an effort to ''keep up with the Joneses." Published under the authority of tha . Minister of Finance of Canada i EE ARE AFTER PEACE Copenhagen, .Sept. 24.-German ma jority parties ' cannot, la their effort to' introduce a\ parlianienetary government, with a responsible ministry, count on the Socialists for active participation, unless the policy hitherto followed by the government is materially altered or abandoned. This is the gist of a long editorial in which the Vorwaerts of Borlin, the Socialist organ, serve! notioe that the time has not arrived for" the Socialists to enter the ministry. "It eventually the Socialists enter the government-and such a time may come," the newspaper says, "They will do so in order to fulfil their great historic mission of. helping peace and altering the present government's policy in accordance with their convictions regarding what the people need." KAISER' PEDDLES IRON CROSSES London, Sept. 24.-Emperor William visited Briey, near Metr, yesterday, according to an Amsterdam dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph company. He distributed 400 Iron Crosses, inspected field hospitals and spoke to German, Austrian, French and British wounded in their respective languages. * Later he addressed a young officer, saying: - "You may fight.our battles as good comrades and In return for our help, which we have often given you, and fpr our strong, frse and common future." Amsterdam, Sept. 23.-Solemn ceremonies over the body of Nicholas Romanoff, former emperor of Russia, have been held at Yekaterinburg by troops of the people's army, accord-i ing to the Izvestia of Moscow. The body has been buried in a wood near where the emperor was executed and was located through information provided by persons acquainted with circumstances of the execution. The work of exhumation was done in the presence of many representatives of the supreme ecclesiastical authorities of western Siberia as well as delegates of the people's army, Cossacks and Czectro-Slovaks. The body was placed in a zinc coffin encased in -Serbian cedar and placed in the cathedral at Yekaterinburg under a guard i composed of the commanders of the people's army." It will be buried in a special sarcoppagus at Omsk. This is the second time that funeral services over the hody of Nicholas Romanoff have been reported. A telegram from Stockholm on Aug. 22 stated that, toy order of the Czechoslovak authorities, the body of the former emperor, which had been buried in a suicide cemetery, had been exhumed and solemnly re-interred on consecrated grounds.. zano, apostolic delegate to the United States, a final tribute "was paid to the venerable head of the New York arch-diocese in the sermon by Bishop Thomas J. Hickey, of Rochester. On the altar were Cardinals Gibbons, of Baltimore; O'Connell, of Boston, and Begin of Quebec, together with 40 archbishops and bishops and hundreds of priests. President Wilson sent a message ex--pressing the "nation's loss." -while Secretary of War Baker and Secretary of the Navy Daniels were represented by representatives. Gov Whitman and his staff and Major Hylan and a large group of city officials were present. Members of the allied commissions in this city were^-also in attendance. - Some lines of manufacture in Canada may be put on cpal rations. .

Unlike tie horse it needs no vests while working, it eats only when in actual use, and,.when the day's work is done it requires very little attention, and loaves you free for other "Chores" about the place. Then, it can be housed in one-quarter the space of the horses,'wagon and harness it replaces; . / : ' > It is a mistaken idea that a truck is tiseful only for driving . upon paved roads. The,Ford can be driven all over, the farm, and. used for hauling, grain, potatoes, fruit,, roots,-fertilizer, wood, stock, milk, or any other product. The spe^d it-travels, the time it saves, and its low upkeep cost appeal very strongly to all users of the Ford Truck.
