C, FRIDAY, APRIL 19,  1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  LLIES STA  Foe Uses Oue-Division to  One Mile ot Battle  ,    Line .  <������������������  Today's dispatches from the west  ern front are more encouraging than  ' they have been any 'day during the  past week. Reinforced by French  troops, the allied line is holding  hard against the further incursions  by the Germans in the region of La  Bassee, to the north of Ypres.  Everywhere the Germans have  struck the line in an endeavor to  press back the defenders they have  been repulsed with heavy losses and  have been successful nowhere in  gaining further ground.  Attacks of an extraordinarily violent nature are being thrown by the  Germans on the_ ten-mile front between Givenchy and Rebecq, where  an endeavor is being made to cross  La Bassee canal and bend southward the salient which n,ow outflanks the important railroad town  of Bethune. '.������������������������������������ ' v  A division of troops to each mile  is being used; by the Germans on  thissector, buT tkuf British al last  , a icounts- were holding-well. and in-  llfcting heavy losses on the enemy.  If successful the new attack of  the Germans would jeopardize the  entire Arras sector, which includes  the famous French coaling region  about Lens and the equally famous  Viniy ridge, where the Canadians  are holding forth. It seems evident  that it is part of the strategy of the  German, high command to wipe out  the salient by an enveloping movement rather than again to give battle to the British about Vimy and  Lens, two regions that already have  proved slaughter houses for their  men.  Following the usual custom prior  to the launching of an attack, the  Germans throughout Wednesday  night literally rained shells of all  calibre 'between Givenchy and Ro-  becu,-the firing by daybreak having  reached the intensity of drumfire.  Large quantities ot gas shells were  intermingled with the high powered  missiles.  During Thursday midway between Bailleul and Ypres the Germans vigorously attacked the British positions south of Kemmel,  which (he British had recaptured  from them Wednesday, but were  unable to gain any advantage in the  face of the strong defense.  Considerable fighting has developed along the front in northern  Flanders between Langemarck and  Kippe, held by the Belgians. At one  point the enemy penetrated the  Belgian front line, but later was expelled, leaving 000 prisoners, among  against the British defense between  Givendhy les La Bassee in an attempt to effect crossing La Bassee  | canal. The British were holding  well and inflicting heavy casualties  on the enemy; according to the  latest reports.  Coincidentally with this pretentious assault, the Germans surged  forward farther north and again  began hammering at;'Kemmel ,ahd  neighboring'high ground.  Field Marshal Haig's report  says:  "There has been severe fighting  again today on the greater part of  the Lys battlefront. From La Bassee canal, at Givenchy to the Lys  river, east of St. Venant, a bombardment wos reported this morning, followed by strong hostile attacks, all of which have been repulsed. ���������'  "The losses inflicted on the attacking German infantry by our fire are  again reported to have been extremely heavy and over-200 prisoners have been taken.  ''The struggle has been particularly ferocious in the neighborhood of  Givenchy, where the enemy made  determined efforts, without success,  to retrieve his previous failures.  The fighting in this locality has not  yet ceased, and the activity of the  enemy's artillery is continuing on  the whole of this front. ���������'���������������������������'.-  "Later in the day, further attacks,  accompanied by heavy shelling, developed against our positions south  of Kemmel and- were repulsed.   ���������.'_���������...,-.

Military* Authorities Recognize Heroic Bravery  on battlefield  Sammies Are Making  Good in France  Washington, A pri IS.���������Secretary  of War Baker has brought back the  message that "American soldiers  will make good in France." Interviewed, he said: "The big thing for  America to do is to, support the war,  financially, in.sentiment and belief.  The armies are healthy and happy  and are afraid they Will have to return before the job is finished." ���������  Tbe secretary of war was very  guarded in all of his statements and  indulged only in generalities.  A large crowd of people had collected at the.Kettle Valley line station ��������� on Staturday evening on ar  rival of tbe east-bound passenger  train to witness the presentation by  Maj.-Gen. Leckie, G.O C, to C. C.  Heaven of the military medal won  by his son, Sergt. Alfred Heaven for  bravery on the field.of hattle. Sergt.  Heaven died of wounds before a  personal presentation could be  made.  A special stand had been erected  on the platform, and on this Maj.-  Gen. Leckie made his address. In  presenting the medal to Mr. Heaven, the major-general emphasized  the fact that these medals are only  given for conspicuous bravery on  the battlefield. It was acts such as  had been peaformed by Sergt. Heaven, he said, that had made the Canadian soldiers famous for bravery  and gallantry all over the world. He  had been requested to convey the  personal regret of the governor gen-  e'ral'to'Mr. -and;Mrs.'Heaven for tire  loss of their brave son, and to this  message of sympathy he wished to  add his own sorrow that Sergt.  Heaven did not survive to receive  the medal personally.  Noted Efficiency"  Expert Appointed  London.

Less Sugar Better Health  A bulletin issued by   the depart  ment of public health of the  Amen  can museum of Natural History emphasizes   the   fact   that   the  sugar  shortage is really a blessing in - disguise, and that most of the necessary  changes in diet are not  only  economies   but   positive  gains   from-the  point of view of hygiene. -Although  sugar furnishes more calories to   the  Unit of cost than any   other  food, it  gives almost nothing except energy.  The same is true of butter and other  fats,   and   too   large  an   amount of  those substances may  mean "'a   corresponding deficiency   in   necessary  body-building materials.   The result  of  the   study   of   one hundred and  two typical city dietaries, published  by Prof. H. C.   Sherman   and   Miss  Lucy A. Gillett, brings out that fact-  very clearly.    The food    bought  by  each family for the period of a week  was   weighed   and   analyzed.    The  families were then divided  into four  groups according to  the   proportion  ,L2 ' ot the total food energy derived from  33 j fats and sugars.   In the   first  group  2G.7    per   cent   of  all   food energy  came from those two sources; in the  oc); fourth group only 1G.7 per cent.

Malthus is  still just as wrong as be was  when sugar was 4 cents a pound.  An opponent of Malthusiauism  could be excused for saying just  now that food conditions are  not caused by too much population, but by lack of; it.: So many millions of men are engaged on the  business'of war ''that agriculturesuf-'  fers: the field lies idle while the nian  who used to till it goes over tbe top  ��������� New York Sun.

By whatever name  the nondescript monsters are called,  the Frenchmen and the Englishmen  recognize their   unique blending  of  the  comic   and   the   terrible.    The  English   "tanks','   are.  cheered   and  laughed at by    tbe   Tommies   with  equal   heartiness,   and   even    their  crews, who take the greatest pride in  them, name them always in a   spirit  of burlesque; while the English, correspondents compare them to "ridic  ulous   and   gigantic    armadillos,"  "giant piglings,  rooting   genially in  mudboles,"    aud   "overgrown   steel  puppies at tbe staggering and tumb  ling age."  The French treat their assaulting  artillery with equal levity. They  compare i.t to "a playful young  rhinoceros" rather than to pigs,  puppies or armadillos; and this is  natural, for the French "tanks," be-  Al. Traunweiser, of the Yale, yes'-"  terday received a telegram from the  military authorities at Ottawa saying that his son George, who was a  member of the Royal Flying Corps  at the front, had killed on the loth  inst. No particulars were given,  and it is not yet known whether he  was killed in action or as the result  of an accident to his machine.  George Traunweiser was only  about twenty-two years of aee. He  was raised in this city, and was educated in the public and high schools  here. After completing his education,, he worked in his father's hotel  and on his ranch for a' couple of  yeais, and then he went to Calgary,  from>'hich city he enlisted with the  McGill University corps shortly after  the outbreak of the war. For over  a year he was assigned to duty as 4"a  dispatch rider in Flanders. While  engaged in thisJaazardous work he  passed thrpugh many thrilling experiences. Then he was sent back  to England and transferred to the  royal flying corps;" with tKe rank "of  lieutenant. He has been training  in England for that branch of the  service for about a year, and when  he was killed he had been at the  front for only a couple of mouths.  The Sun has printed a number of  interesting letters from him, describing his experience in learning  the art of flying.  Mr. Traunweiser was an intelligent and very energetic young man,  with the promise of an exceptionally bright future. He was very  popular among his companions, and  his warm personal friends were only  limited by the number of his acquaintances. Like thousands of  others, he has laid dowu bis life in  the prime of manhood for a just and  noble cause, and this fact should  tend to assuage the sorrows of his  parents and relatives for the sad  fortunes'of war.  sides their indubitably  thick  hides,  versely with the   proportion   of   su- i carry iti front a projecting bowsprit,  or horn.

C.  11  -.J  It Works! Try It  bread rationing for the  United Kingdom   is  bein  g prepared  No   matter  how  fashions  change,  ous and hilarious amusements while  the  fate  of the  empire  hangs  in   the   balance on the  western  front, and while  the  casualty  lists  contain names from our. own city^, have by  no  means been rendered inept by  recent  reports- ��������� ���������-.-���������&  from the front.    The casualty lists during the tempers will never be in good style,  past few clays have strengthened us in the be  lief that our judgment was  sound.    The fact  that a portion, or all, of the proceeds of these  functions are turned over to patriotic societies  does  not   palliate  the offence  against good  taste.    The person who will not give  according to his means   to  support the war and th'e  patriotic organizations without  expecting  an  equivalent  in  return   to   his   donation in tlie  shape  of dancing  or. other amusement, is a  very poor patriot, and he should be.-drafted to  endure the hell of the trenches.  i  ruffled  After the war has beeu won the people can  indulge in rejoicing, merrymaking and festivities to their hearts' content, but at the present  time we protest against such frivolities.  Although the situation on the western front  appears to be brighter today than it has been  for several days, the critical stage has. by'no  means been passed, and theie may yet be  many days, or even weeks, of anxious waiting, alternating doubt and fear, before the  ~rritrrn}r"Ts^elnt on his final homeward march.  Perhaps the future looks as dark just now  as at any moment since this terrible war began. Never more, then, than at this hour  should courage and hope characterize our conduct and speech. .There can be but one ultimate issue. Humanity is not on the down  grade. Eighteousness, justice, mercy have always won in the long run and they are winning now.  Why is it that many of the -atrocities reported in connection with this war make no  profo under impression upon us? Is it not that,  no matter how well vouched for, they seem so  absolutely incredible, so far beyond the worst  we have ever known of human nature, we can  not help believing those who report them  mistaken. Must we accept as without hyperbole, aud as literal cold truth, the words once  spoken of certain men, "Ye are of your father  the devil''?  Jack London was neither a "Sunday school  teacher nor the president of a humane society.",  When the crucLtv he discovered   back  of the'.  The New Westminster "British Columbian  on Friday last,contained the following excellent editorial on the subject of telling the  truth about the war: :;;  The news that the British have retired seven miles is  bad. However military '"experts" may glose it over,  however it may be explained as a -"strategic'retreat;'-'  the fact remains that it is a disaster. If the Germans  bad been pushed back seven miles, that would have  been acclaimed '-aggreat victory for allied arms, and the  German^jxplanatiou would, have been ridiculed in every  part of the world. The thing must work both ways.  The time has come for plain speaking. This is not a  defeat, but it is a disaster to.British arms.- This should  be reoognized, and the question faced, "What are we  going lo about it?" The only possible answer is a grPater  effort; more men; more ships; more wheat. -The plain  fact is that Canada has uot done enough. But thn gov  eminent is not to blame. Broadly speaking, the govern  ment of a democratic country can only go as far as public opinion will carry it. it may lead a little, but only  very little. It therefore rests with public opinion to  authorize the government to go much.farther, very much  farther, than it has gone. But the only thing that will  arouse.the public is to bring home a -realization of the  gravity of the situation. Therefore, the "time has come  for plain speaking. Unwarranted pessimism, at its  worst, is better than unwarranted optimism. Rose col.,  oied spectacles will not win this war; they may in fact  lose it.   - -  Raemaekersonce drew a cartoon representing the  Russian Bolsheviki dawdling in the primrose path,  dreamily regarding a flower, and oblivious to the dan  ger that lay in its path. Is it not a foct that the great  mass of tbe Canadian people are equally oblivious, or at  east regarding with some complacency a situation that  ldoes not warrant an}' complacency at all?  In plain English, the time has come for leaders of  public opinion everywhere to tell the cold truth. Lloyd  George may say that "while we have a ship afloat we  will never accept a German peace." And no doubt .it-  sounded fine, when he said it; no. doubt his audience  leapt to their feet cheering. But in cold print, What  does it amount to? If, in fact, Britain had but an inferior uavy to the Germans; if in fact the allied armies  were outnumbered, and the people of Britain faced demolition, what would this declaration amount to?  Simply an empty boast.  The British empire is not defeated, but will it never  be? Yes, the cold truth is that it may be defeated unless it bends every ounce of energy to the task of winning, as Germany has done.  The fact is that public men, leaders of public opinion, newspaper writers, are afraid of sounding a note of  pessimism. They may say weakly that more men are  needed, but in the same breath, in thd same issue of the  paper, they will utter or print some glowing prediction,  ome high sounding boast, some idiotic  | Tells   how   to   loosen   a   8ore,  | tender corn  so  it lifts  | out without pain.  ���������  ���������t .--    - - i  Good news spreads rapidly and druggists here ��������� are kept busy .dispensing  freezone, the ether discovery of a Cincinnati man, which is said to loosen  any corn so it-lifts out with the fingers.

How Bees Help  Fruit Growers  .By     experimentation       extending  through a number of years it has been  found that if many of   the   ovules  of  the apple flower fail to become   fertil-  iled (which, of course, results in undeveloped  seeds),   the   apple will cither  lack size or symmetiy, or both, 'writes  O. M. Osborne in the British   Col urn  bia Farmer.    Since  this condition  is  true the fruit grower should  endeavor  to furnish conditions which "will cause  every flower which is to bear fruit   to  become   thoroughly     fertilized.      To  bring   about   good fertilization, thorough    pollination   is absolutely necessary.    What does the process of   pollination mean to the fruit grower?    It  means that it is a potent   factor, first,  in    the   quantity   of production, and,  second, in the size and shape   of   the  fruit.     It._is   a process in which   the  flowers   and    the    bees co operate for  each other's gJod, a process    which is  often termed symbiosis.     It is  a   pro  cess   where   a   member   of   the plant  kiu������dom has modified its structure for  the purpose of reaping a benefit   from  a member of the animal   kingdom���������in  this case the houey bee���������as   a  pollen  distributor and has offered   the sweet  nectar as a reward.  Since the pollina  tion of the apple llowers is   performed  almost solely by the honey bee. it   be  hooves the.fruit grower   to have bees  in abundance in his orchard.     Lo  can  be    determined    only   experimentally  Whether or not the numbei of bees existing in an orcaard is sullicient.    The  experiment may be performed, by   the  fruit grower by placing a hive of bees  at one end or in one corner of  a  large  orchard   aud    then     observing     the  amount   and    shape of   the fruit set.  This method of determining   whether  bees are in stillicient abundance is, of  course, expensive, for any lack of ihcm  results in a  shortening   of   the   f uit  crop.     Hence    it   is    well   to ensure  against the possibility of loss by keep  lives   of   bees  distributed  the   01 chard.     Beos   not  only will often   increase   the   quality  and    quantity   of   tho fruit, but iuci  dentally will furnish the fruit  grower  with .wax for grafting and   honey   for  tho home.  ing a few   1  throughout  Putting Both Feet In It  in the course of an evening rectsp  tion a woman who had none too good  a voice sang for tlie guests.

Even from their present small  supplies they are saving Italy from collapse  through hunger.  Since shipping must be concentrated on the shortest  routes, Canada and the United States must continue to  be practically the only source of supply.  Canada must provide wheat and meat in incrcasirnj  quantities to meet a situation that imperils the issues of  the war.  Men who* can be spared for work on the farms must  s:rve in this way. Those who are obliged to remain in  the city or town can at least raise vegetables in their  gardens or on vacant lots.  Every effort will be made to see that labor is forthcoming to harvest the maximum crops that farmers ctm  produce.  j   An increased spring acreage in wheat and other grain  is vitally needed.
