This would seem to indicate that the Bulgarians are sincere ia their desire for peace, and this opinion seems to he borne out by the Hulgarian amba:-sador to the United States who declared on Saturday that "Bulgaria is out of the war." In the meantime the allied forces on the Macedonian front arc pushing abend. Having taken Struir.nltza, Km-ehvo and Voles, the next big advance Is under way which, will have for Us main objective the taking of the Bulgarian capital and tho cutting ot the road to Constantinople. As this is being written the wires nre carrying the news that tho armistice has been granted Bulgaria. That this win mean Bulgaria's withdrawal from the war, and the eventual defeat of Turkey goes without saying. Austrian and German troops however may fco expected to give tho allies some trouble, in Bulgaria, but Roumanian Buxton, where the Canadit n discharge depot is located, is a hc.iuti.nl little town situated at one ot the highest points In Kngland. It wtis a favorite health resort and many splendid hotels, attracted people front ail over the isles. It Is in one of these hotels, in delightful grounds, that the discharge depot is loeaied. | It may he enlightening to relate the � exact procedure followed by a warrant officer, a non-commissioned ollicer or j a private soldier in going through the i discharge depot, the jump-its j; off j Mouth | place for Canada and the folks at] At in.;:* am alio'her parade.

The Sun- i day morning attack was over a T.."-mi!e front in the St. Quentin area and it appears to bo moving satisfactorily. Carobral Is practically Invested, and hould fall this week. This Is the strongest point on the famous Hinden-burg line. Foch's strategy seems to bo to keep the Germans so busy meeting new attacks thit the enemy high command cannot get an opportunity to create a strategic reserve, and in this Foch is apparently very successful. Tho five attacks on the west front are now progressing. Forty jhou.

Arthur Sifton, in a speech at Medicine Hat, combatted the talk eo prevalent In certain personally interested quarters, that Canada should leave tho United States 'to win the war by making this vo/y effective statement: Bolsium, he yaid, did not. stand aside and leave the fighting for France. Likewise, France has not passed tho responsibility along to Great Britain. People were already speculating as to which country was entitled t� the credit of bringing about what now appears liko an assured Victory. Credit for winning the war would belong to each country that btLg done its utmost, and even Russia, ereal and other diseases. Should hi' havo Vermin, he is immediately (leaned up; but If found to he suffering with any of the other diseases he i.s struck off the Sailing. Passing the Medical Kxumlnatiou, he gives his name and number to the F.mbarkation Officer. He Is then handed a Berthing Card, showing him the deck, section, room and berth number. Finally he Hon. A. L. Sifton, at Medicine Hat-/] is asked If hn has signed his "Last declared that Canada had fewer Pay Certificate" and "Complaint strikes, relative to population, than | Sheet."

That's the view that should prevail throughout the world. opportunity of making his .complaint or recording .any suggestion; v.hiih he may consider iiecosrary and of advantage.

It is a most restful spot, quiet, peaceful and wonderfully endowed with natures gifts. BUY YOUR LADIES' BOOTS AT THE HUDSON'S BAY SHOE SALE Where the Shoe Pinches! This man knows where the shoe pinches and he lays the blame on no one but himself, "I should have known better." This is the kind of reform that counts. Most people busy themselves trying to reform other people. They think things would be just a little better if somebody else did just a little different. But where the shoe pinches is probably with yourself, with myself, with ourselves. When we get to the point of knowing this and acknowledging it, then we have made a start. Let's try this line of reasoning in tackling our Community problems. Where does the shoe pinch? "Am I doing any thing that is keeping back the growth of my community?" "Am I leaving anything undone to advance the growth?1*' With this spirit we can co-oper 4te. Co-oj^ration wins every time.
