Two hundred and  fifty thousand'Russians haveyjoined  the Allies in the vicinity of Paris,  and to,these are to be added other  thousands from India, the Dominions and England. It is announced  that Britain now has half a million  men in the field.  '.After being forced back day after  day for the past three weeks, the  Allies *were pushed upon the outer  forts of Paris.    There they were  of 125 miles. It is, expected this  great battle will last a full week,  and it is not anticipated that anything of a decisive victory can be  won by either side in less time, if  then. The situation has been unchanged since the first of the week.  The * Allies are alternately advancing and' retreating, with some partial successes reported in the Vos-  ges. The French minister of \vaf  on Monday telegraphed to the Gov-  ernor, of Maubeuge" expressing the  Government's admiration for the  i heroic defence and saying:-   "You  reinforced, and when the German; stop ftt nothing to >pi.olong resist.  invaders attempted to push home;  the) results ^of the past .month's  fighting > and capture ./Paris,'/they,  found' themselves * opposed by ah  "army; fully' as': numerous as their  own/-���������������������������./--> 7-7-* ,--,--.--, 5 -���������������������������v ""?:-���������������������������*  ]: Tins ^causedTtlie^ Prussians' to7at:  tempt toy change-their plan:6fybat-  tle.jX.A hiigh. turning movement  was \ attempted,.on the.

Hcnnie, the live-wire "kid" of lhe  stair, fell out of a tree on the old  Ontario farm, where Mrs. Walker  and children have been spending a  few weeks, and broke his forearm.  Hennie has one arm, two legs, a  back and a neck still intact, which  leads us to believe he will hold out  long enough to reach home this  month .  make their permanent quarters until  lhe business has grown lo demand  larger room.

In spite of war times  this sale is proving highly satisfactory ,_to^the^merchants^wJio^are_  putting it oh as well as the buying  public. Mr. McLean, the manager  of the sale, has the skill and resourcefulness that put life into a  sale of this.kind, and the prices at  which the goods are going do the  rest.  A fire broke out in the cabin of a  settler by the hanie of Louie Krall,  in Trinity Valley, Monday morning  Sept. 31st, and from the burning  cabin thc flames spread to thc near  slashing, and in a short time one  of the most serious fires in the district was burning. Fire Warden  Hawes was quickly on the scene  with a gang of men, and in a few  days the blazing timber was surrounded with fire-guards, and the  danger from further spreading was  reduced to the minimum. The  rains of the past few days, light as  they have been, have stopped most  of the fires spreading.  Messrs. Prince, Stevens and Dougal are meeting with great success  in their alfalfa meal enterprise.

It \yould seem from these preparations, which  can be seen by reading between the lines of the  meagre reports coming from the front, that the  Allies are preparing a coup which, if they are  able to pull it off, will be of vaster importance  than all thc movements and engagements that  have gone before. It will mean the surrender of  the German army in France or its annihilation.,  slow, perhaps, but sure.  There is a possibility, of course, that this well-  laid plan may fail. In this case thc Allies will not  be in a much worse position Hum they have been  for the past two weeks. Tlie difference will be  lhat their fighting line will be broken, and lhc  surrender of Paris a probability.  HoAvcver, the surrender of Paris will not mean  much in the ultimate outcome. A report says W  Paris fall's the effect already has been more than  discounted in London as the War Office has  managed lo convey the impression to the public  that thc capture of the French capital means only  thc prolongation of the war.

After many days of anxious wailing and uncertainty, we arc at last beginning to see thc re-  suits of the weeks of preparation and fighting of  thc Allies on the battle field in Northern France.  The'sleady. unbroken retreat of Uie Allies' lines  has been turned to good account, thc-full importance of which will hardly he known for some  days yet. It can now be seen, however, that in  every day's fighting, while the arms of the Allies  achieved no great victories, they brought nearer  the ultimate defeat of the Prussian invasion, and  this week we shall no doubt see lhc turn in events  which has been so long hoped for.  While no definite statement has been made by  thc War Ollice, and need not be looked for, giving  the information lhal hundreds of thousands of  Russian troops have been landed on Belgian and  French soil,' tin's fact has leaked out, and it is  definitely known lhal an army of 80,000 Russians  was several days ago landed in the vicinity, of  Ostend. and another as large if nol larger, is said  to have been landed on the French coast. This  report, while not coming from ihe War Ollice,  seems worthy of crcdance. if fact, if the Russian  troops are to assist the Allies in Northern France  -a!-a-!l^t-hey^inusW)e^aken-lhei-e-I)y^seyt^and--wilh;  the British fleet in command of the North Sea,  there could be no'great risk in bringing the  troops in lhat way. In addition to these Russian  troops, Britain has been throwing other thousands of her own troops inlo France, and il i.s estimated lhal she has now at lhe front one-half  million men. Like additions arc reported to  have been made lo the French troops.  We now see the Allies forced back to lhe very  forts of  Paris, and there holding  the Prussian  hordes at bay. Il is reported lhal lhe Germans  are preparing to take Paris forts by storm. In  view of the impending onslaught, the.capilal of  France has been moved from Paris lo Bordeaux.  All seems lo be in readiness for the Prussian  hosts lo swooj) down upon their coveted goal.  11 is just here, wilh all in readiness and the prize  in sight, lhal the curtain-is raised just enough for  us lo see the climax of lhc Allies' campaign in  Northern France, and to lead u^ lo hope tha! tlit*  Prussian war machine has been effectually  checked. We are led lo believe lhat General  French has turned lhe left wing of the German  army, and General Jolfre lhe right wing. If this  is hue, .-iiid the turning movements are supported  sullieienlly to make Ihem effective, we. may look  for very important news from the front before  the end of Ihe present week. If these turning  movements have been made and can he carried  oul, i! will mean lhe enveloping of Ihe Prussian  army right al lhe gales of Paris, with their lines  of communication cut, and wilh a third army in  the passes of the Vosges mountains in lhe vicinity  of Lorraine lo prevent lhe Germans retreating  by lhc passes through which they entered France  by way of Luxemburg. Thc Belgian troops are  preparing lo hold the roads leading through Belgium to cut off the German retreat in that direc-  In view of the recent sinking of many neutral  merchant ships on thc North Sea, wilh consequent heavy loss of life, the following editorial  from the New York Sun is to thc point:  "A memorandum given hy the British Charge  d'Affaircs nl Washington to Secretary Bryan Tuesday  asserts lhal "the Germans arc planting contact mines  indescriminalely about lhc North Sea in the open sea  without "regard Cor consequences to merchantmen."  The North Sea being thereby made 'perilous in lhe last  degree,' lhc British Admiralty 'holds itself fully at  liberty lo adopt similar measures in self-defence,'  thereby increasing thc dangers of navigation in thai  sea. Neutral merchant ships arc warned to turn back.  "Thus the open sea becomes a closed sea, monopolized as a battleground of two Powers. Any merchant vessel venturing thereon is liable to be destroyed  with all on hoard. This is a time when sea transportation is crippled, when the number of passenger  steamers has been notably decreased, and \v.hen the  exportation of food products is becoming a commercial necessity for the United Stales.   y_  "And not in the North Sea alone,'bul in every sea  where ships ply,  these mines may be laid  by these  bciigerenls or by their allies,  following thc humane  example; setting these hell traps in the pious hope lhat  only   the  enemy   will   be  ginned   thereby.      As  for-  friendly  nations,  d\.\c  'notice'  will be,  should   be,  is  supposed to have been given.   They may keep .oil" the  water or they may lake the risk.   If their Governments  have made formal protest they may hope to recover  damages for. their vessels, injured of lost by an open  sea mine.    And  thc lives taken by this anchored or  floating death1"-?    Does war rule the seas, and peace  have no business or rights there?   And what becomes  of the old theory lhal neutral ships have a right to go  their own way in war?  "In lhe name of humanity, and self-interest apart,  the United Stales should notify Great Britain and Germany and the world of its opposition to and its horror  of these engines of chance murder. As Professor  Woolscy, of Yale, wrote ten years ago, they 'constitute  an indiscriminate attack upon neutrals and belliger-  ants.' Yet Ihcy are 'permissible.'

Bul whatever Hague conventions has done or left undone, there can be no defence of a practice which  sows death on the unowned and general seas, shut  against neutrals save al their peril.  "And this so monstrous an encroachment of modern  warfare upon the domain of neutrality is 'permissible'  al present. So decoying wrecks by false lights were  once a moral occupation."  COMING!

Miller, Enderby  There's bushels of money in hogs,  says a writer in the Calgary Albert-  an, who prophesies that the time is  not far distant when there will be  more hogs raised in Alberta than in  any province or state on the continent.    In  the  opinion   of  several  American hog experts, Ihe-profits of  the business of hog raising should  amount to more than 100 per cent.  The figures given in thc article arc  interesting,  and  the  result of the  calculations ought to be encouraging lo would-be hog raisers in British Columbia.   Suppose, the article  goes on, that  a  man  who  knows  about pork, should- start the .business of hog raising with ten sows  in September of this year, and had  only an average amount of luck, this  is what would  happen:    His ten  sows should each present him with  a litter of five pigs round,about the  New Year.   This would be 50 pigs,  half of which would be "sows, and  the others boars, for the sexes are  generally  fairly  well  balanced  as  to  numbers. , Sows that are provided with proper farrowing buildings will produce two litters of pigs  annually.   A year should elapse before the young sows are allowed to  breed.   Given these facts, it is easy  to figure out the rate of increase.  In September, 1915, the man who  started out with 10 sows just^a year  before would have 10 breeding sows  25 sows and 25 boars, each seven to  eight months old, and 25 young pigs  and   an* equal   number   of,young  boars. "        (  "A year later, in September, 1916,  the hog raiser could boast of having  60 breeding sows, 25 sows seven or  vCight months old, 85.young sows,  and a total, of 160 boars.'   In September, 1917, his stock would have  increased,to 170 breeding sows, 150^  sows_seven  or .eight' months old,  and 322,boars.  '        ~"      1 :   .    ',"'  "Andy now "asto" the cost of reading hogsV. It .takes.on an average  eight months to get a Hog in fitcon-  ditiori for the;market���������������������������that,"is, to  bring it up to the 200-pound mark'  and get-$15, for it.   A liberal estimate of the expenditure involved,  including feed and proper housing,  is $7.50 per hog. Supplied with this  information, it is simply a, question  ol\a little* sum in arithmetic to "arrive at the profits.made in .three  years by the man who started out  with ten sows.   The sum and total  would .vary, of course,- in different  cases, according to how the man  sold pr kept his stock.   But the total value of the full-sized animals  raised  at the end  of three  years  would be approximately ������������������9,500, and  thc cost of rearing just half- that  amount.   And there would be left,  calculating on the basis given, 212  young sows and an equal number  of young boars.  ��������������������������� "In other words, at the very low-  est-estimate,-the-profUs-of-this-busi-  ness of raising hogs amounts to 100  per cent.

It is not anticipated that the present "general war will last as long as  the widely, extended struggles of the  past. The development of -war  material, the telephone, telegraph,  air service and means of transport,  all tend to bring hostilities" to a  rapid climax and conclusion.   Thc  following table shows the duration  of the various wars of the last century and a quarter:  Duration  Wars in days  England-France, 1793-1815...  8,168  Crimean, 1851-56      731  U. S.

Cost "of These Wars  The cost of the present war will  exceed greatly that of. any single  conflict in the history of the world.  Thc cost of the wars scheduled  above was:  England-France ' $6,250,000,000  Crimean     1,525,000,000  U. S.

It will be seen that  the cost runs considerably higher  than $15,000 per. man, and this, too,"  includes "all those dying from disease in the hospitals on the battle  fields. It' should be remembered,  ,too, thai?, .as the modern implements  of-war improve,* the cost per man  killed or injured,increases, owing to  the remarkable advance made" in the  nature of "the- defenses.' ..The result, is that the; ratio of~men~killed  orf^Wndedin'acfual.'battleis'cori-  tinually- diminishing. *- This ratio  was" 6 per cent under-Frederick, the  Great, 3 per cent under Napoleon,  -2\per cent in i870)',ah"d"''V^pef cent  in Manchuria.     7  , ?\7      '<   .  ���������������������������-A"' writer" in 'the Scientific, Ameri-  can says, "It will be impossible to  predict with exactness how much it  will'cost'per man in the present  war; the, sum will depend upon the  nature of, the struggle.   If fighting  continues every day, the cost will  J be approximately $15,000.    If the  battles arc as in 1870, at rare intervals, the cost will increase in very  appreciable ratio. , It will not diminish, that is certain."  Whether the armies are fighting  or preparing to fight, the cost of  upkeep goes on just the same. ��������������������������� And  if we would.get some idea of what  it takes to'feed an army, let us consider for a moment the Scientific  _American!s^estimate^of=a-=vvcek"s  ration for the German army alone.

Here is a straight talk on advertising which is so good we are constrained lo reproduce it in full, believing il will be of interest to our  readers as well as lhc businessmen  of the community. II is from the  Killam, Alia., News:  "The publisher of this paper has  again been confronted with a request' for mail-order-house advertising, and again refused, and I here  is just one reason and only one reason, why I refused lo accept it,  viz: the possible injury lhal would  result lo the 'home merchant* by  opening up Ihe columns of this paper lo mail-order concerns. I had  the unique experience of discussing  the maltcv with Ihe advertising  manager of lhis concern personally  and among other points mentioned  were the following: My advertising rales were entirely satisfactory  and t was assured lhal the advertising would be paid for in cash with  no stipulation lhal I was to Trade  any* portion'of il out wilh the advertiser.' I was assured that the  advertising mailer would be  changed for every insertion, lhal  well-wrillen copy would be provided and submitted without fail  on Monday or Tuesday or on or before any day of thc week that I  wished lo specify.  "Of course I could nol accept the  advertising, diid refused it out of  justice to the local merchants and  dealers whose interests are centered in the community where the  paper is published.  "From lhe point of view of a  newspaper publisher, however, the  above incident causes one lo slop  and think, and purely from a business point of view it-would seem  lhal any publisher would be al  liberty lo accept advertising mailer  from any source that manifested  ability lo pay for il. The local  merchants, however, arc" one in the  belief and contention that the home  paper should exclude all mail-order  advertising and faclory-lo-user  advertising, but, together wilh their  demand along this line Ihey' are  very reluclanl lo contract for advertising space and, whal is si ill  worse, they often claim thai the  advertising docs nol pay them,  which, in some cases, may be true,  bul this is always due lo a fault of  their own, namely: failure tp make  proper use of Iheir advertising  space.  "A mail-order house lhal would  contract for a half-page or a quar-  ler-pagc in this paper would nol fill  up the space wilh a few general  statements, a request for your pal-  ronage and a guarantee of satisfaction, and then leave ihe same  thing in lhc paper for I wo or three  \~\rclfs~Tff '"sucFe'ssiWiT^trntl "tlfcTr  grumble  when   the  advertising ac-  i too often, the impression is conveyed lhat he is entirely dependent  .upon the charily of those home  merchants, who stick an ad into lhc  paper just to help the-paper along.  "I claim lhat lhe home merchant  can increase his business three or  four times over by pulling on clean-  on I sales of oul-ol'-season lines, by  selling on a '���������������������������'���������������������������closer margin and  strictly for cash. If all Ihe money  lhat is sent out of this lown were  spent at. home the home merchants  could sell on a closer margin and  do a far bigger business. If there  were no losses from bad accounts,  no expense .collecting outstanding  and poor accoimls, the home merchant could make il impossible for  a mail-order-house lo dribble their  goods out by mail and express, wilh  all the work of wrapping, packing,  invoicing,��������������������������� .checking, posting, etc.  The ��������������������������� mail-order-houses lose no  money .through poor customers;  they lake no chances and Ihey take  no exorbitant profits.  "Nol long ago the publisher of lhe  patent inside of this paper wrote  me a letter protesting because I insisted lhat no mail-order advertising appear' in the patents, and telling me that I would gel a material  reduction in the price of Ihe ready-  prints if the revenue from- this  advertising was nol curtailed, bul  1 insisted thid il be excluded in  support of the home dealer.

Immediately after Iheir first. ad appeared every reader of this paper  would be eager to read the ad of the  mail-order concern. Why ? Partly  because of-1 he bargains- contained,  but more particularly' because there  was something new in il. This paper  i.s published just one day in seven  and Ihe counlry merchant in many  cases docs nol find lime to write  one ad every seven days. "What  would he do were he called upon  lo write an ail 'every day in the  week? What would lhc counlry  merchanl do if Ihe little town he  lives in suddenly became a small  cily? Would he progress wilh the  limes or would he throw up his  hands in holy horror and hit for  the tall timber where he could gel  away from lhc din and strife, and  busy life of an increased business?

Cooper  President Secretary  War Bulletins Up to Date  Brussels, Aug. 31, 57 B.C.���������������������������(Delayed in transmission.) ��������������������������� "Horum  omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae. . .  proximique sunt Germanis, qui  trans Rhcnum incolunt, quibuscum  conlinenter bellum gerunt."���������������������������N.Y.  Evening Post.  WHERE IS THIS PLACE ?  The Canadian Druggist says:  "There are any number of small  communities where nothing on  earth ever seems to bring the inhabitants together with a common purpose unless il is a fire or a funeral.  Even the latter, wilh thc remains of  a leading citizen as a subject,  would show notable exception to  any unanimity.  "Looking at it from thc viewpoint of an outsider, it seems lhat  for lhis devil-may-care reason,  many small .communities:' develop  haphazard, if they develop at all,  show enterprise only in spots, and  become hotbeds of mistrust and dissension.  "There arc towns where thc  blinding dust will fly all summer  long because Bill Jones suggested a  watering cart, and Jim Smith, who  has allowed mortal hatred to grow  and thrive in him for the aforesaid  Jones, opposed the cart and decided  to put up wilh the dust, just to  peeve old Bill a bit. Meanness,  cusscdncss, doggonness, pure and  simple. The lown is blasted by the  pettiness of a few who are of one  accord only in disagreement.  "Go back lo thc origin of the hatred between Jones and Smith, and  ten chances to one if you could find  a reason. From a municipal standpoint, it seems almost incredible  that so many small places should  just grub along, governed by the  prejudices of a few, and only showing action born of mistrust. The  people of the unenterprising,places  never know how often opportunity  may have passed them by while  they were engaged meanwhile in  hating one onolher, and, like monkeys, alternately grinning and making faces. Il seems to the writer  that hell .might easily be a series of  small villages, where everybody  hated everybody else, and nobody  cared a tinker's dam for the good of  the community."  Hard to Find  Perhaps somewhere in the world  there:may be a woman who is absolutely truthful and thoroughly unselfish, who is full of the tenderest  sympathy for the suffering of  others, who is logical and reasonable in all things, who would never  sloop to petty deceptions, who  knows nothing of vanity nor envy,  who is able intelligently and wisely  to counsel and assist her husband  in bis business affairs, who detests  extravagance and show, who knows  how to manage her house' and bring  up her children with discretion and  ability, who is not jealous of������������������hcr  husband's woman friends, and who  i.s incapable of ever saying a single  spiteful or mean thing���������������������������there may  be such a woman, I say, bul if  there is she could never hope, to  find a husband who would be worthy of her.  No Arms for Aliens  Canadian Wheat Crop  Canadian official estimates put the  wheat crop of the three northwest  provinces at 137,000,000 bushels, as  against 209,000,000 bushels harvested a year ago. Private experts  figure that the spring crop region in  the United States will produce only  224,000,000 bushels, a falling off of  12,000,000 bushels compared with  the August government report.  Aliens in Canada have been forbidden the possession of arms or  explosives Natives of countries at  war with England who have arms  or explosives must surrender them  to the authorities within ten .days  from Sept. 5th. This is the provision of a Government order just  issued. The sale of arms or explosives to such aliens is forbidden  under penality of $500 fine or three  months' imprisonmnt.
