In forest of Montmarc we have  progressed on the western part of  our lines and repuised two counter attacks. Some prisoners,  one 37 centimetre gun, many  rifles and a quantity of ammunition fell into our hands.

Paris, April 16.���������To the north  of Arras we have gained a brilliant    success,   which    compares  with that of last month.    The  whole spur to the the southeast  of Notre Dame de Loretto was  carried with the bayonet by our  troops, who hold now all southeastern slopes  as  far as outer  works and  fringe of Abtain St-  Nazare.    We took 160 prisoners,  including several officers, three  trench mortars and two machine  guns.    In the region of Albert  the enemy attempted two attacks  which'were immediately checked.  In Argonne district at Bagatelle  our artillery demolished one of  the principal German trenches.  Farther east, at Neurissons, we  repulsed an attack.    At Les Eparges the enemy delivered three  attacks during the night April  14-15 with the object of reaching  our eastern salient.    They were  repulsed and suffered heavy losses.    At noon our positions were  violently    bombarded,   but   the  enemy did not attack.    At Mont-  marte wood we repulsed counter  attacks.     On ground taken on  the 13th we continued inventory  of our booty, which included two  quick-fiirers,   two   trench   mortars, one machine gun,  several  hundred rifles, and thousands of  cartridges and grenades.  An Aerial Raid on England  Newcastle, April 15.���������A Zeppelin raid was made in the Tyne,  districtof Northumberland County last night.   It appears  that  the Zeppelin reached Blyth from  the North Sea at about 10 p. m.  It passed over Blyth and Cram-  lington  and   proceeded   to   the  neighborhood    of    Seatonburg.  Bombs were1 dropped on several  villages passed; five atChipping-  ton,  three at Wallsend,  two at  Seatonburg, and one at Bedling-  ton. Airships passed near North  Shields and Newcastle.    While  no bombs were dropped at either  of these two places, precautions  against ..attacks were  taken   by  extinguishing the electric lights.  Full inquiry shows that no loss  of life or serious personal injury  resulted from the raid; and although several small houses were  damaged the material loss was  not very heavy.  Turks Fail in Mesopotamia  London, April 15.���������According  to an official report issued by the  India office, the Turks had collected a force of 11,000 regulars and  12,000 Kurds and Arabs, with  twenty-eight guns, attacked  British positions at Kurnsahawag  and Shaiba.in Mesopotamia on  March 12. They were driven off,  however, leaving three hundred  prisoners and two guns in the  hands of the British. The British-casualties were ninety-two  men wounded.

Spring Thaw Interferes  With War Operations  Petrograd, April 14.'���������Official  communication : lighting continues in the region of Uzsok  Pass. During night of April 13  our troops made slight progress,  and successfully repulsed the  counter attacks of the enemy  south of line Volosate-Bukowez.  We captured about one thousand  prisoners and two machine guns.  Attempts of the enemy to assume  the offensive on the heights  south of Koscouka and on the  right bank of the river Pruth in  the region of Czernowitz in Bu-  kowina failed.  Complete calm reigns in other  sections of ourfront. The present thaw is making the roads  very bad.  Terrible Tragedy Enacted  at the Indian Village  The celebration of Empire Day  has always been a feature in the  life in Bella Coola. and during  these troublous times when the  life of the Empire requires great  sacrifices, when the loyalty and  patriotism is at full heat, the  one of this year, 1915, will certainly not prove an exception to j manager  the rule. We are glad to note  that preparations are already being made to make the celebration  worthy of the day.  A 24th of May celebration committee held a meeting at the  Mackenzie schoolhouse the 12th  inst. Mr. Gibson presided and  Mr. Fougner acted as secretary.  Mr. Burt reported that the Athletic Association had elected a  committee to prepare for the  sports, etc.  The questions of novelty stands  and sale of refreshments were  acted upon. It was decided to  request the Bella Bella band to  take part and that a general invitation to people outside of the  valley be extended. Any money  on hand after the celebration  will be used for the war relief  funds. The next meeting of the  committee will be held May 1.  Mr. I. B. Saint, the able manager of the Bella Coola cannery  arrived on the last steamer. Active preparations for the handling  of salmon the coming season is  now being pushed and if the pack  should not be found up to expectations  no one   will   blame   the  Foreman for public works carried on in Bella Coola and vicinity  Mr. McRostie went out on Sunday for a short visit to Safety  Cove.  24TH OF MAY CELEBRATION.  On Sunday morning last the] them.  Britain and Prohibition  London, April 15.���������The government, as was expected, has  'decided against universal prohi-  j bition, but the new drink regulations have not been finally  ���������settled. The policy generally  | favored is prohibition in sale of  ��������� spirits and wines; shortened  j hours of public house opening and  reduction in strength of beer.  inhabitants of Bella Coola were  startled by a report that Squash,  alias Captain Lewis, an Indian,  had murdered his wife in a most  atrocious manner and then committed suicide.  The chief actors in the tragedy  lived a more or less peaceable  life in an attractive little house  oh the Indian reserve. The woman had left her former husband  some years ago and taken up her  abode with Squash. She was  known to possess an uncertain  temper, but for all that the  couple seemed to get al'ong well  together. On Saturday morning  Squash told a Bella Bella Indian,  visiting with him, that he would  give him two sacks of potatoes.

SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1915.  a  A Scurrilous. Sheet."  At the late political meetings  ,:held in the valley, some more or  less complimentary  opinions _of  this paper have been expressed  by the opponents of its policy.  Some   people,   and   very   good  people too, feel that the attacks  made  by  this   paper upon  the  ��������� Government of the day are to a  great extent uncalled for and unjust.    It.is not to be expected  that the editor feels that he has  been unfair in calling attention  to the extravagances and other  evils connected with the administration  of our public affairs,  therefore this plea is offered in  his defense.  Every right-thinking person  will concede that where public  evils exist, in order to get them  removed it is necessary to point  them out.: This task is not pleasant and does not gain general  popularity. It has never done  so in the past and it does not do  so now. These good people who  find fault with our criticism of  public affairs may even go so far  as to admit that there is considerable truth in the charges made,,  but they feel that the evil cannot be removed, at least not in  that way;  An old book relates of some men  called prophets, who made themselves very obnoxious to the authorities and the majority of the  people by pointing out and condemning ;the pratices in vogue.  v They denounced the evils of the  day in season and out of season,  causing thereby somuch hatred  against themselves that quite a  number of them suffered martyrdom. The greatest reformer of  modern times, Martin Luther,  was not popular with those whose  evil practices he criticized. The  abolitionists and the prohibitionists of our own times were called  names, were scoffed at, ridiculed  and sometimes persecuted. The  good people accused them of  going too far and maintained  that calmer proceeding on their  part would be far more effective.  Their enemies accused them of  evil motives/of being hypocrites,  soreheads, turncoats, switchbacks, etc.  But do you know that it is such  unpopular men that help civilization forward? They are possessed as it were with an idea  and their conscience will not allow them to keep quiet.  In the case of this paper attacking the evil practices of the  Conservative Government of  British Columbia you may argue  and seemingly with good reason,  that the Liberals are no better  than the Conservatives. In a  certain sense this is true.  But experience and history  have taught that there is nothing  that will purify an organization  as well as adversity"; be it  church, society, or politics. We  believe that it can be shown that  prosperity and power have the  opposite effect. Our space will  not allow us to quote history to  prove, this, we will state in support of our contention only this  much: . The Conservative party  in Canada was rather noted for  being corrupt when it lost power  in 1896. The Liberal party was  accused of the same when it went  down to defeat in the-last Dominion election. Either party did  well during the first years of  power in the administration of  affairs. And the writer will yield  to no one in his admiration for  the conduct of the provincial  affairs by the McBride Government the first years of its administration. But power and  prosperity has had its usual  effects. Our Government has  become too extravagant. We  can at least safely assert that  much. The Liberal party of the  province has been out of power  a long time and according to history and experience ought to be  fairly pure. And if staying out  of power for a number of years  has not that effect upon a party  we must despair of popular government, a government of, the  people! -  But we have faith in this sort  of government, and in spite of  evils, in spite of set-backs, we  believe the people in this case,  as they have done in the past  when evil, became really oppressive, will rise in their might and  hurl from power the party that  deliberately and wantonly squanders the resources of the pro-  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  We concede in connection with  the above that tact is very valuable in persuading men, and may  also concede we have not been  as charitable in our criticism as  we ought. Be that as it may,  we shall not stop pointing out  the shortcomings of the Government until it either repents or is  defeated. We ask all good people  to join in a movement to effect  a change in this respect, and we  hope and believe the change will  come soon.  vmce.  o     o     o     o     o  Philosophers- tell us, there is  a force for righteousness abroad  and the world is moving onward.  Truth shall win and wrong shall  fall.    Even Mthe stars in their  Induce the Boy to Stay on the  Farm.  It is a -well known fact that  the population of cities have in  the last decades-'increased at a  far more rapid rate than the  population of the rural districts.  This would not be considered  as a very serious problem, at  least from an economical point  of view, if the production of food  stuff increased at the same rate  as the population. But unfortunately this is not the case. The  food supply is smaller in proportion to the number of people today than some years ago. This  is probably one cause of the increased cost of living, the. increased cost of living means better prices to the farmer, and the  effect of this state of affairs has  led to a greater prosperity among  the farmers. For ordinary people  the occupation of agricultural  pursuits is today the safest and  most profitable in the land. So  my dearfarmer, if- your boy does  not show exceptional ability in  other directions, try your level  best to make him content to continue in the footsteps of the  father, with the���������_exception, that  he improve on former methods  ! and avail himself of the know-  and experience gives.  In bringing up your boy, then,  be sure to give him as good an  education as you can afford, and  along lines which he is gifted.  Some boys, grown up on a farm,  may not be fitted by nature for  the calling of a farmer, he may  be of a mechanical turn of mind  or something else. " He may have  gifts that show he would make  an able doctor; lawyer or preacher. But in most cases and in  doubtful ones, if you educate him  to become a farmer you are not  very likely to make a mistake.  Be not afraid to deprive yourself  of things which you would like  and need, even, if necessary, in  order to give him an education;  because education is of far greater advantage to a boy-than any  amount of wealth without it.  Give the boy your confidence.  Treat him with consideration and  as if you have faith hr his good  sense. When any work is to be  done or any plans made, give  your boy your ideas and your  reasons connected with the matter in hand and invite sugges-  tions from him.  Give him reasonable leisure.  Remember if you make the yoke  too galling he will take the first  chance to free himself and then  his pent up resentment of unjust  treatment will cause him to become reckless in conducted regardless of your .feelings -and  remonstrances. .  Give him as much liberty as  possible consistent with his duties  and age; if you do so he will  generally respect your will and  judgment when you find it necessary to refuse-him untimely or  questionable recreations and  pleasures.  Do not think it will spoil,him  to give him praise for tasks well  done.  Do not give way to your temper when accidents happen or  things go wrong. Try to put the  best construction on everything  annoying that happens, and if  on reflection you find that in a  certain case you have wronged  your boy, do not be afraid to  apologize. You will, by doing  so, not lower yourself either in  dignity, authority or respect, but  you will cause his love for you  ���������to become stronger. In short  make him your comrade.  Try to make the homeas pleasant as possible. When you have  the means, rather than to launch  out into wider activities at the  Saturday,  April /;, /9   j&jg  s  For Results Use-  "A. P.

One looks back from the top of  of a hill to view a long, sinuous  column of khaki moving in remarkably exact formation and  with a wonderfuly cadence for  an endless mile; its tail is hidden  over the crest of the last rise.  The intervals between the advance and vanguard, the vanguard and main body, and the  latter and the rearguard are  maintained all the way. When  the column halts for a spell  guards are posted in the fields  on either flank���������-just as in a hostile country.  Blackdown is on a plateau in  the wilds. Though comparatively near to Aldershot, there is a  wilderness of pine trees and furze  for miles around: Close at hand,  alsorare the splendid rifle ranges  of Bisley and Pirbright, where  the world's best marksmen have  competed.

Bella  Coola  farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola 'Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  ������>ELLA COOLA and the surrounding  "^ country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  ������  Highland  Your opinions of your neighbors may be a reflex of their  opinions of you.

Well, as we came up someone in  front of me, in defiance of the  regulations, said "There he is!"  and as we gave the salute I saw  a grave-faced, bearded man in a  field-marshal's uniform and seated astride a black horse between  the brigadier and General Jeffries, who looked at us critically  and returned our salute, I thought  somewhat absently.    This was  George-the  Fifth, and for the  nominal head of the greatest confederation in history, according  to my impression, was majesty  without arrogance.  To' the left of this group of  three stood the first lady in the  Empire; Queen' Mary, dressed  very plainly in black, her simple  attire distinguishing her from  other ladies standing near by;  her whole aspect bespeaking the  quietdignity and sympathy which  enshrine her in the hearts of the  people.
