BOERS LOYAL
10 GREAT BRITAIN
Are   Prepared  to  Shed   Their
Blood in Defence of British
South Africa.
London, Sept. 12th.—A force
from German South West Africa
has invaded British South Africa.
Premier Botha has said that
every Boer will shed his blood to
repel the invasion.
Paris, Sept. 11th.—The Allies,
following up their recent succes-
es, today forced the German invaders to continue the retirement
of the right flank and centre
from the east of Paris. The
Germans abandoned much equipments and at the same time
sacrificed many prisoners and left
their wounded where they lay.
London,Sept. 12th.—A Reuter's
despatch from Antwerp gives the
following announcement issued
today by theBelgian government:
The provinces of Antwerp and
Limburg and almost the whole of
eastern Flanders are now free of
the enemy. Our troops have re-
occupied Tremonde. The last
engagement occurred yesterday
in the vicinity of Tremonde in
which the Germans were badly
beaten by the Belgians and driven
back with serious losses.
London, Sept.l2th—The Daily
Chronicle's Ghent correspondent
says: The German army is in dire
straits for lack of food. Ghent
has been unable to furnish the
supply of foodstuffs demanded
by the Germans, who are now
pushing a column of from 40,000
to 60,000 towards Courtrai in
west Flanders.
London.Sept.llth.—A despatch
to The Times from Bordeaux,
dated September 10th, says: Since
last Sunday, when the enemies
sweep southeast of Paris was
checked on the Grande Morin,
the German war machine has
been showing signs of wear, and
each fresh day.'s battle has closed
with the Allies in a more favorable position. On Sunday there
was furious fighting along the
Grande Morin, which continues
at LaFerte Gaucher on Sunday
night, and Monday morning the
enemy began to retreat on their
next line along the , Petit Morin.
Here they were allowed to rest
for the Allied forces were tasting
the rare joy of offensive action
and wished to taste* it to the full.
On Tuesday the German commander became apprehensive for
the safety of its communications,
and saw looming on its right
Hank the possibility of disaster.
North of Paris the French found
ample room for the assembling
of a large army, and, while the
British were slipping from the
northeast of Paris to the east
with the Germans, their plaice of
glory was taken by a large French
force which moved up to the
River Ourcq and became a serious
menace to the enemy's retreating
movement. The River Ourcq
formed the upper blade of a pair
of shears of which, as they gradually closed, the Grande Morin,
Petit Morin and River Marne
formed the lower blace. Immediately the German staff realised
the situation it endeavored to
extricate itself from the blades
by a rapid retreat and a series of
fuse but fruitless onslaught on
the French forces holding the
right bank of the Ourcq. The
fight here has been of a peculiarly desperate character, which is
shown by the fact that of two
standards captured one, that of
the.Thiitieth Infantry Regiment
of Magdeburg, was torn from the
hands of the bearer by a French
reservist. The French, however,
stand firm along the Ourcq, while
the British have crossed the
Marne and driven the enemy
thirty-five miles. From the centre
the news is meagre but the
French are understood to be progressing. The Germans apparently are suffering from lack of
ammunition, and it seems their
difficulties in obtaining supplies
from their case has only just
begun. If all their plans succeed
as they have done during the last
few days the Allies will be well
on their way to victory.
London, Sept. 12th. —A correspondent of the Daily Telegraph
sends the following today from
the fron*: A wireless message
to Berlin which was intercepted
here today said "We are badly
in need of horses and supplies."
A German general, who slept in
an inn here last night, was heard
to say to one of his aides "A
great disaster has overtaken us."
An English officer of the aviation
corps said "It will be a miracle
if any of these Germans get home
again."
London, Sept. 12.— The second
great battle in Galicia was more
disastrous to Austria than the
first. The Austrian losses were
130,000, which includes 90,000
prisoners.
• London. Sept. 12th.—It is officially announced that Great
Britain has captured all the German Islands in the Solomon
Island group.
FALL MILLINERY OPENING
On Thursday, the day announced for the opening of the
new Fall Millinery at Simon
Leiser & Co., Ltd., quite a large
number of ladies turned out to
see the latest models in headwear
for the season.
This department is again under
the supervision of Mrs. Clifford,
who has kept the latest and newest in millinery before the ladies
of Cumberland and district.
The number of smart models
on display was especially commented on, and the natural attractiveness made customers take
to the new styles more easily.
The variety of colors displayed
this season seems to be so great
that most people should have no
difficulty in getting something to
suit them.
The leading colors a^t present are
black and white which hold the
most prominent position, and
cerise and flame in the bright
colors are predominant.
During the afternoon tea was
served on the balcony, where Mrs.
H. Wilson looked after the interests of the many ladies who renewed their acquaintance over
tho tea cups.

LOCAL FIRE BOYS
CAPTURE CUPS
Made Splendid Showing in Alberni and Bring Home Mott
of the Silverware.
Alberni, Sept. 9th. — At the
annual contest of Vancouver
Island Volunteer Fire Brigades
held here today the Cumberland
boys carried all before them.
Running in splendid form, and
making every coupling like veterans, the Cumberland team of
volunteer firemen captured the
big Canadjan Pipe Company's
cup that represents the championship of Vancouver Island. It was
a great struggle, and so far as
can be learned a number of B.C.
records went by the board in the
contest.
The Alberni team was both
fast and strong as indicated by
the fact that their time was
away below the record. But at
that the flying bunch from across
the mountains turned the trick
and took the silverware.
In the big contest, which consisted of three tests, the times
were as follows : dry test, Cumberland* 40 1-2 seconds, Alberni
42 1-2 seconds; wet test, Cumberland 39 seconds, Alberni 421-2
seconds; breaking hose line,
Cumberland 1 minute and 5
seconds, Alberni 1 minnte 14 1-2
seconds.
The contests were clean and
without a hitch, and all parties
are to be congratulated, the
Cumberland boys on winning,
and the Alberni boys on indicating that they can take a trimming
with a smile when a better team
comes along.
The minor events wore run off
in the afternoon, and are now in
progress.
The afternoon events were the
hub to hub race, won by thc
Cumberland Fire Department,
time 28 seconds; the dummy contest was won by Mr. Drinkwater
of the Alberni Fire Department

DID YOU SEE THE_C_ROSS_?
Fjll) >ou read an early "extra" at your breakfast, Mr. Brown?
And your coffee   did you like it: did it pleasantly go down?
Did you think, above your bacon, of your peaceful, happy lot;
Ay, and joke about the figures on your china coffee-pot?
When your children came around you and your wife beside you sat
Did you throw away the "extra," saying: "Foolish business that!"?
When the women called upon you for the wounded and their wives.
Wearing crosses on their bosoms, asking aid for shattered lives,
Did you think about YOUR children, safe at home in luxury,
Or the children of the heroes who are dying hourly?
Did you think about YOUR business and treasured bit of gold,
Or the business of the Empire and its duties manifold?
To the Crimson Cross before you were your eyes awake or blind?
Did you bless the cause it symbolized, or poor excuses find !
Did ynu make a lying promise and put on a sorry face,
Or fulfill your obligations -like the Anglo-Saxon race?

Gerhard Heintzman
Canada's Best Piano
Canada's best piano is the Gerhard Heintzman. The sincerity in
every stage of manufacture marks
the Gerhard Heintzman instruments you buy today as marked
those that came from tho hand of
the young master-builder in the
late sixties. Gerhard Heintsmah,
still ambitious, oversees the construction of every piano that bears
his name. In case architecture,
finish, style, the Gerhard Heintzman Piano has kept pace
with the best of the new ideas; the action is the same superb
action, with mode-n refinetfionts, that won first place for
this piano in the beginning. The tone is rich, sweet, pure
and lasting.
When you think of buying a piano, think of Gerhard
Heintzman and his life work. The Gerhard Heintzman Piano
is the piano you will admire above all others. I'he price is
less than that asked for many inferior makes.
