to the east of the Rhine seems to be the turning point
and that the next authentic news will be to announce
to the world that the Germans are again back on German
soil, and that Belgium and France are clear of enemy.

sight to go by the so-called court

crowded to suffocation and a place
in which justice seems to be impossible to think or act, because
of the inadequate and almost
ludicrous surroundings. Government Agent Heme and the Judges
who come to this district are
surely entitled to better surroundings to do (heir work in, to say

Latest War News in Brief
London, September 18th. -The House of Commons was proprogued to-day amid a most impres-
- sive scene. Labor Leader, Will Crooks, led the
members of all parties in singing the National
Anthem, in which the wave of emotion and loyalty
to the Throne and Empire that swept through the
house mastered the most stoic of the Britons, the
members breaking down with emotion.
Royal assent was given the Irish Welsh Bills
passed by the House.
The censorship on news from the front is more
rigid than ever this week, hardly a message of any
credence getting through. It is believed that the
English, French, Belgian, and Russian armies are
engaged in the most .terrific struggle continuing
the favorable results attained last week by the
allied armies.
The Kaiser's order to his armies to retire to the
east of the Rhine seems to be the turning point
and that the next authentic news will be toannouce
to the world that the Germans are again back on
German soil, and that Belgium and France are
clear of the enemy.
London, September 18.—It is reported officially
that the English troops again repulsed the forces
under General Von Kluck in his effort to break
through the allied lines, the Germans sustaining
frightful losses. The splendid gunnery of the
English being responsible for the result.
Lord Kitchener's message to send more men and
send them now speaks volumes. The enemy is
worn with their fighting night ancl day. The first
flush of their invasion of Belgium and France and
their early victories has exhausted the troops and
they are not able to stand up under the constant
gruelling lire of the steady English batteries.
Hence Lord Kitchener's plan to keep sending fresh
men after his own troops sent out early in the
fighting, means much to the allied armies at this
time.
Quebec, September 18th. - The Government
Steamer Motmagny was rammed in the St. Lawrence early this morning in a dense fog by the
Collier Lingan. It is reported fifteen lives were
lost.   Both vessels badly damaged.
THE   HIGHEST   IDEAL   OF
NEWSPAPER   WORK
An institution that should always fight for progress and reform. Never tolerate injustice or
corruption. Always to oppose privileged classes
and public plunder, Never to lack sympathy with
the poor, Always to remain devoted to the public
welfare. Never to be satisfied with merely printing news. Always drastically independent. Never
afraid to attack wrong, whether by predatory
plutocracy or predatory poverty, Any Newspaper
that nobly assumes these attributes is worthy of
the support of the people and will leave its mark
on the history of its times.
Fire Wednesday Night
About 11.30 Wednesday night
the cry of fire sent the chemical
engines to an out building in the
rear of the Wedgis Rooming
house on Fourth Street. Little
damage was done outside of demolishing the building, which
had been used as a store house
and barn and at the time was
not in use. It was found to be
full of straw and hay and is supposed to have been set on fire
by someone who went in to sleep.
The fire department again did
wonderfully quick work in get-
ing to the fire and subduing it,
without doubt saving considerable loss to surrounding buildings.
Fire Chief Campbell has always preached readiness and
proper equipment and his care
and insistence on this point has
already saved the town much
loss.
It must not be forgotten that
the South Fort Geore Fire Department is sustained by Voluntary contributions and every
person owning prop ..'ty should
esteem it a privelege to donate
something each month to keeping it up to the mark,
None of you know when your
time will come to look for the
protection of the Department
and you will expect the same
protection who do not pay as the
man who does. Some of our
people have given liberally and
steadily to the fund. Others
have given seldom and still others
nothing. But you will all want
the same protection, Fire Chief
Campbell and his assitants give
their time and attention to the
department, loss and damage to
clothes are never reimbursed,
they get nothing out of it. Men
are sleeping in the Fire Hall
ready at any hour of the night.
The owners of property can do
no less than support them with
donations of money, everybody
helping will make it easy and
light. The funds are kept separate and open for inspection at
all times. A night watchman constantly on duly with seven
stations scattered about town
which he visits every 15 minutes
and examines all intervening property between has saved many
a situation. This costs .$100 per
month, Then the winter season
is on when the chemical engines
must be kept from freezing and
ready for instant use. Then the
materials and repairs for the
engines are constantly calling
for funds. We are at the season
of greater costs but it means
protection and saving of property.   EVERYBODY HELP.
Attend the Fire Beneifit to be
given at the Fort George Theatre
Thursday evening, September
24th. Everybody come; at least
everybody can buy a ticket.
Local Company
Now Forming
For The Front
Captain Leatham, on Tuesday
night this week drilled twenty
men in South Fort George garage and on Thursday night drill-
I ed twenty at Central Fort George.
' It is expected a large attendance
1 will be had at the Cache on Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. It is
desired to form a company of 60
to 75 men from this section. Captain Leatham received a wire
from Commandent Wilson," L.F.,
Edmonton, this week asking that
'the names of volunteers for
active service be sent in by this
: Sunday. All who wish to be included are asked to join the company on Sunday and send in their
names. Nearly all the men who
have thus far registered have
passed the necessary medical examination successfully.
Captain Leatham wired Ottawa for necessary rifles etc.
but reeeived word that at present there were no spare ar ma
available, as every firearm had
been used to equip the forces already sent to the front and those
preparing to go. This will shortly without doubt be remedied as
soon as the Governmeut can get
from the factories the supplies
ordered.
As there is in this district a
scarcity of arms of sufficient
length, it will be appreciated if
the citizens will lend their guns
for drill purposes, such as single
barrel shot guns, to those of their
friends who have registered. The
names of the men attending
drills can be obtained on application to Captain Leatham or 2nd
Lieutenant L. G. Weston, at the
Forestry Office.

Twenty Rounds of
Fast Fighting To-Night
The best boxing yet staged in
Soutii Fort George will be pulled
off at the Fort George Theatre,
(Tonight) at 10 p. nv., immediately after the last show. The
contest consits of two ten-round
bouts of fast and clever boxing.
The first bout will be between
Harry Anderson, (better known
as 'Toy') of South Fort George
and Kid Noble a fast colored
lightweight of Minneapolis. This
promises to be fast, as Noble
intends to force the fighting,
while those who have seen Anderson in action know that he is not
lacking in that respect. The
second bout will be ten rounds
of fast milling between 'Fighting' McKay of Winnipeg and
Tommy Wilson of Kansas City.
Both men are evenly matched
and the fans are looking forward to hard battle.
The price of admission is $1.00
only, for any seat in the house.
Don't forget the time and price.

Selling at Cost
No business can be conducted on the "SELLING AT
COST" plan. Firms claiming to transact their's on these
lines are either deceiving the public or are in business for
the sport of the thing-the latter is hardly probable.
Anyone with a grain of common sense will agree with
us when we make the statement, that in order to sell goods
a firm must bear a certain amount of expenditure such as
Insurance, Taxes. Salaries of Clerks Etc., Etc. People
engaged in the mercantile business are not mere philanthropists: they MUST get a'certain amount of interest on the
capital they have invested, AND THEY DO.
So Beware of 'SALES AT COST', They Are Fakes.
The secret of selling is buying right. In this we excel
and it places us in a position to sell you the highest quality
of goods (not junk) at the lowest possible figure and still
make a LEGITIMATE PROFIT.

impossible to prevent the increase in the cost of production
unless the paper was to shirk
its duty to public as a newspaper
at the very time when the public
most needed news. Although
revenues fell off, each newspaper
has had to incur an increased
cost for cable and telegraph
services.
This is no time to let up in support of the newspaper. The public demand news. People must
live just the same, then why not
continue to advertise ?

The Grand Trunk Pacific Rail
way this past week inaugurated
the through train
Prince Rupert. The city of the
Georges looked forward to the
time with eager anticipation last
spring, but now that it is here
little attention is paid to it. We
are too busy talking pessimism—
war—bad business—everything
is going to the eternal bow-wows.
Before we know it all will be going fine again and while we
watch Europe and the butchery
of men we will lose sight of our
blessings at home.
Now is the time to gather fresh
energy and husband our resources for the change that is
sure to come when business and
finances are cut-loose and allowed to resume their way.
Then the through train service
east and west will be so common
that we will forget all about
the inconvenience of the Cariboo
trail and start kicking at the derelictions of the railroad. Such
is human nature.

l^OOD Printing need not cost
you more than the inferior.
It's success lies in the "get-up,"
type arrangement, and color
scheme. It is simple and dignified type - setting that attracts.
Simplicity appeals to all classes
of people. The most pleasing
attracts the most attention and
consequently the most custom.
A firm's goods are judged by
the class of printing sent out.
This is the most economical way
of attracting fresh customers.
Printing is a public link which
connects the maker of the goods
with the people who buy them,
therefore, printing properly
handled will always sell goods.
Your brisker competitor knows
this; You think he pays for it?
He knows that YOU'LL pay for
it, and you might as well pay
for some for yourself as pay
