C, FRIDAY, MAY 24, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  Soldier   Convinced   That  Germans'- Next Offensive  Will Fall Down  The following letter, written by a  ?oldierin France to the editor of the  Ladysmith Chronicle, breathes the  spirit of hope so strongly,' and contains so many, common-sense suggestions, that we believe we can accomplish some good .Joy reprinting it:  1 . . . We often wonder how the  folks at home view the situation existing here on the western front.  Personally,' in expressing an individual  opinion, ever keeping in view the desired goal, viz., a speedy and victorious, termination of the war, I consider tho net results of- the past  month's offensive very favorable to the  allies. The enemy's casualties have  been enormous, and dead Huns are  the only good ones, and mean mnch  moro to us than shipping them to  Blighty, where we feed them better  than ever they were' fed in peace  times. We have the added satisfaction  of knowing that" they won't return  home to raise another army to make  another attempt to dominate the  world in a few years' time.  ���������'While the enemy lias forced us to  give   ground,    the    transaction    has  been   a good onefoi us. viewed   from  a military standpoint. As you have no  doubt  seen, ere   this,   something like  thirty eight   British   divisions    have  been   holding   off about  seventy-six  Hun divisions.    The French are more  nume'jous than the British, so even to  a layman   it is   evident that General  Foch is strong in his reserves aud has  some extra aces up his sleeve.    Anyway, the one great thiug is,   everyone  is confideu't here   that   we   have   his  number,   and, while some authorities  poohpoohed  the   idea   of a   German  offensive,'   it   seemed    plain to every  soldier almost that we  could    expect  it just about the time it was launched,  as it is a certainty the   Hun   has   no  more chance of winning out once    the  United    States   with   her millions of  men and immense resources gets   into  action.     Thus it become a case of now  or never with Fritz to strive for a de  cision before our ally gets    busy;  but  he   has a long way to go yet, in   fact  farther than is possible in  this   direction, as the boys are on their toes.  "In fact, he has not bothered the  Canadians very much in this last  drive. It may be that he has something-special in store for us. If so, he  will find us ready and working on the  principle   that   it   is more blessed to  work within the central empires that  will take a hand at no distant date  and assist us to the desired end.  "The action of the authorities in  Canada in rushing young fit men  over here is to be commended, as no  honest man can reject the principle  that when ar nation's existence is  threatened, tho hurden of its defense  should and must be distributed equally on all without fear or favor, aud in  the'application of this ��������� principle and  the furnishing of those who are fighting, and the flag under which we  serve, we could well take a leaf out of  the book of the United States. Nothing but admiration is expressed at the  earnest manner, in which they are  getting into this struggle, and we  must not forget that men,bad as they  are needed, are not the only thing  necessary.  ^Ln conclusion, let me urge upon  all to carry on and leave no opening  for regret in the future that wo might  have done more. The British spirit  prevails nere, and we shall carry on.  Endurance wins and the victory is  ours most assuredly."  American Navy is Increasing Its Patrol Forces in  European Waters  Washington, May 22.��������� It "is announced by   the   navy  department  toddy that the   American   navy   is  increasing its patrol forces  in   fiu  ropean waters.  The increased patrol is one of the  factors in the decrease of submarin-  iugs. The navy's airciaft contingent  is being augmented and tne ship  forces enlarged. The department  declares the submarine situation has  improved, but is loth to make optimistic predictions lest the people  relax their vigilence and the submarine campaign bursts forth with  renewed vigor. It is declared that  there is reason to believe that Germany has super-submarines of unusual power and cruising radius.  Louis  Hill  Sees   a  Great-  Future Ahead oJ: the ,  Dominion  Louis Hill, well known son of a  famous father, and whose business  acumen and prophetic instinct is  hardly less than vas that of the.late  J". J. Hill, said recently that he foresaw for Canada many years of the  most unbounded prosperity. Tbe  days of trial and tribulation, he believed, were over, and he expected  to see development make strides as  rapid and progress as groat as was  that of-the United States when its  population increased by the millions  every year Prosperity, Dominion-  wide, he believed, would sweep  through the country in waves such  as are entirely unrealized by those  who live in the country, and wnose  preparations will appear to have  been entirely inadequate.

"To sum up the situation in   a   nutshell, allis well as  far  as tho soldier  is concerned; there will be 'No   Thoroughfare' for the Hun, and it is to be  hoped that everyone at home is in the  same position.    It would be disastrous  if our politicians were  rushed into ,a  premature peace, which   would   without   a   doubt   make  our   conditions  worse than they were.   Tho combination now opposed to tho Hun is   one  that no powers   on    oarth    can with  stand   or   overcome, and   it must bo  fought out to a finish, and indications  arc   not   lacking   that   forces aro at  dime to the missions."  Every experienced gardener starts  his Bower garden in the autumn. By  so doing he can be sure .of a -continuous display of bloom from the time  that the snow disappears until it covers the ground again in   the  autumn.  The very first flower of the year is  the Christmas rose. This frequently  forms under the snow and is always  in bloom by the time the snow disappears from the border. .The cro  cuses aud the squills follow.. The  really worth while flowers of eariy  spring, however, are the tulips and  narcissi. The tulips'are the "radiant" flowers of spring which come to  us with the first songs of the birds.  With the tulips come also the more  delicate creamy white and golden  n<irci^si or daffodils. The beautiful  and stately Darwin tulips carry the  blooming   seasou    well    on   into iris  time. " !  The irises with their many rainbow  colors belong to the "ardent" group  of flowers. In goigeousness of color  they are, perhaps, without rival. The  Dutch, English, Spanish and Siberian  iris lengthen out the season well on  into paeony time, and paeony time  lasts for several weeks and carries the  flowering season into rose time.  From the time when the early bulbs  begin to fade until past rose time  there is a continuous succession "and  variety of many of the gorgeous spring  flowers. The dazzling and magnificent  Oriental poppies and tho tall spire  like foxtail lilies, recently introduced  into Canada, add peculiar charm to  the borders.  The flowering shrubs are very beau  tiful. They are easy to grow and   per-  4 0(J  naPs "lore graceful even than some   of  4.00 ] the flowers    First of all the snow gar-  | land and sweet scented currant bloom,  Returning to the perennial flowers,  tho ne'xt great group is that known  as the "showy" group, and includes  phloxes, Shasta daisies, blanket flower, etc.' These are the flowers of July  and August.  The annual flowers areat their very  best in late July, August and September. They are easily raised from  seed sown about the middle of April.  Many of them continue in bloom until the killing frosts of October.  Sweet peas must not be forgotten,  and they augment the flowers of July  and August.  The flowers of late autumn constitute the "prevailing" group, which  inoludes the golden sunflowers, the  Japanese ancmonea and the fall or  perennial asters. The China aster  and the wonderful modern gladiolus  and the Japanese lilies should have a  place in every garden.  LABOR FOR  America's Army in France  Will   Be  Greatly  Increased Shortly  1.00  2.00  5.U0I  5.00!  1.00 i  Washington,May 22. ��������� America's  first field army of- approximate!)  200,000 men' .has been, formed .in  France. The army consists of two  army corps of three divisions each,  with Col. Bjomstad chief of staff,  the war department announced today  Startling revelations have become  public of the giant.strides made by  the army towards the movement to  Fiance. It is disclosed that the  Americans in France will equal the  British facing the Germans within  two or three months, unless the  British ai;e greatly reinforced in the  meantime.  The American forces are likely to  approximate Gen. Haig's pres nt  forces by August 1. This information is from authoritative sources  here. The brigading of the Ameri  cans^with the British continues unabated, and presumably the National army men are the ones being  .brigaded, the field army being  formed from seasoned troops which  have been in France for a long  period.  THE WEATrlER  One Thousand B. G. Boys  Willing to Help to Increase Production  One thousand British Columbia  boys between the ages of fifteen and  nineteen years are available to assist  the farmers of the province to increase  production. These boys are anxious  to do their little bit, in order to help  the farmers produce their crops. There  are numerous complaints about a  shortage of labor. Here is a source  of supply.

Senator   Berenger proceeds to state his  reasons  for holding this view.    They appeal  to us as sound and comprehensive.  The decision of Russia embarrassed  the allies because it released for service on  the western   front not   less  than a   million  German and   Austrian   troops.    But   that    defection  freed   Britain   and   France   from a  great burden.    The allies had found  it necessory to supply  Russia  with  money,   shells,    powder,    cannon,  even rifles.   The United States came  in   ou   a   very different basis.    She  furnishes   us   money,     munitions,  grain and all the prime essentials of  armament and food. She sends hundreds    of  thousands  of  soldiers to  fight and die with our soldiers.   The  United States will  go  to   Berlin   if  necessary to save the world.  So the French are waiting on   the  United States to make up   fully  for  the Russian defection, if  we are   to  rely on these observations.   There is  undoubtedly much in this.  And the  United States is speeding up. Secre-  ! tary Baker has declared   that  more  than half a  million   American   sol-  Mhx idiers   have   been  landed in France.  ���������18 .Thousands are crossing  every  day.

C.  OFFICE:     COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAK15 STREET.  FRIDAY, MAY 24, 1918  THE NEWSPAPER'S FART  The great agency of war propaganda, says  the Mail and Empire, is the newspaper  press.  In the entente countries its influence is solidly  and effectively exerted for the winning of the  war.    No more loyal volunteer force is enlisted against the kaiser than that made up of the  rank and file of the newspapers in the British  empire, France, Italy and the United   States.  In  all  thes������ countries   oiVicials   with    high  sounding titles are exercising authority as war  propagandists, censors, directors of publicity,  etc.,   but  without  the spontaneous, constant  and intelligent work of the  press  as  an  acknowledged voluntary  war   aid   detachment,  these officials could accomplish little or nothing.    In spite of some of them the  press  has  been a mightv influence in the waging of this  war.    It has been a power to muster the  nations'defensive forces, to stimulate  the  pro  dnotion of the necessaries of war, aad  to   set  the greater and lesser fountains of the people's  wealth flowing to the national   treasuries.    It  has moved to action governments that seemed  to be immobilized.  But it has more to do.   The conversion   of  public opinion into the great war energy that  can  be  made of it is not yet complete.    The  harnessing  of the  full Niagara strength  of  Canada's might as a war-power is an unfinished task.    Many of our people can not see the  difference between effort in war-time and   effort at  any other time, nor perceive.that the  objects  of their  labor ought to  be different  from what they were in peace:���������that Patriot-  i-im-should displace Self. The pressure of.pub-  lic opinion must be raised to a much higher  point  throughout Canada before it becomes  the  motive force and inspiration that should  ���������    be driving our  war  operations..   Newspaper  service can do moro than anything else to get  the  whole  national  power  turned on.    The  newspapers of the Dominion must continue to  stir the war spirit in every  Canadian   bosom.  They  must keep at it until tluw have all the  people thinking militarily in all their relations.  It  should   be the  patriotic  craving of every  farmer to   till  more hand in order that there  may   be  more  food  for the  soldiers; of the  workers in all fields of industry to deny themselves in order to spare more for the   men  at  the front; of the earners to be more thrifty  in  order to help in financing the war. Newspaper  dispatches and newsprper articles about  the  war  ought  to  be  designed to inflame public  feeling against the enemy and rouse to fighting  pitch   the  temper of our people from the Atlantic to the Pacific.    If the press keeps at it,  faithfully  reporting  and   pressing   home  the  news of the war, entente conn  of readers who will bring thousands more to  the resolution to enlist. It will.. facilitate the  working of the compulsory service law, and  will stiffen the will of the non-combatants to  keep the channels of supplies filled.  If Germany also  had - the  balance ot sea-  power we might well feel doubtful about turning the fortunes of the war.    But she  has  no  sea-power that dare show its nose on the ocean  routes except her submarines.   Her merchant  marine had  to  quit the sea at the beginning  of the war. Germany's isolation from the ways  of traffic on the high seas has brought her to  an economic plight that pressed her to strike  with all her might now.    Not  only does  the  food pinch thus operate, but so also does  the  realization that the balance of man-power in  her favor is being lessened every clay by  the  balance of sea-power against her, as entente  ships  arc   landing   forces   from .the  United  States  in rapid  succession.    If the entente  nations as a whole do as well as their armies  the victory will be theirs.  Our system of eye examination enables us  to, correctly fit lenses which , relieve eyestrain and eye troubles.  n^   KKxotnnvantltt JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  D. MORRISON GRAND FORKS, B.C.

In Man is an Angel and a Devil, a Dr.  Jekyll and Mr. Rvde. The '.Red Cross is the  Good, aroused, energized to thwart  the Bad.  It is the best antidote we know to the bane  of war.  There are other Charities, more or less helpful. The lied is the mightiest of all Charities,  the Love and Pity of all men mcide supremely  efficient.  If, as Emerson said, "sensible men and conscientious men are of one religion," this is the  expression of that religion. .  The Red Cross is humanity united in Service-  It asks no man's opinion; only his need.  Black or White, "Friend or Foe, to the  Red  Cross there is no difference; it only asks,"Who  is Suffering?"    And to him it goes.  The Red Cross is so Efficient that Governments recognize it; so Pure in its purpose that  whoever wishes well his fellow men, desires to  help it; so Clean in its administration that the  most suspicious can find no fault in it.  The Red Cross not only seeks to alleviate  the cruelties of War; it is the expression of  those human sentiments that some day will  put an end to War. .     .  It is the impulse of Love striving to overcome the impulse of Hate.  It is Mercy's co-operat:on struggling against  War's rivalries.  It is the one Society in which every Man,  Woman and Child should be enrolled; for it  knows no sects, no prejudices, no protesting  opinion; the human being does not live that  does not feel that the starving should be fed,  the sick tended and the wounded healed.  Majestic and divine is this Long Arm of  Mercy; it finds the fallen on the battlefield,  it brings the nurse and the physician to the  .victim in the hospital; it leads tlie weeping  orphan to a home; it feeds the starving, cares  for the pest-smitten-whom all others abanuon,  and pours the oil of ITelp and Pity into the  wounds of the World.

S, Carter, Nelson district passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific  railway, announces that a daily train  service between Nelson and Vancouver on the Kettle Valley line will be  established on June 2. The route  will be by Hope, and it is expected  to be abont a 27-hour service.  Mr. Carter has not yet been informed as to the time of arrival and  departure of the trains, but-' thinks  they will be much ns at present, except daily instead of tri-weekly.  During the winter months the service was carried on by ��������� way of  Spence's bridge on account of the  road via Hope being blocked. The  shorter route is now reported to be  in shape, and it will mean a considerable saving of time in the trip  to and from the coast.  LOST BY A PAIR  OF GLOVES  An A^ed Garden  Patriot  "I am a veteran of the  civil   war  and I want your free garden primer  so I can plant a few rounds of sharpshooter peas to shoot at   that butcher's carcass." That is the way  D  M.  Wilson, of 391   North   Twenty-first  street,   Salem, Ore.,   writes   to   the  notional   war   garden commission.  "I   have   three   grandsons  in   this  war," Mr, Wilson's letter  continues,  "and in    Dixie I  left one brother,  one uncle, and twelve cousins under  tbe sod.

Depth Bombs  What is said to be one of the most  erlicient weapons in tlieanti submarine  warfare is the depth bomb, which  carries several hundred pounds of high  explosive and bursts automatically at  a predetermined depth. The effective  ness of the weapon lies in the fact that  it does not have to hit the submarine  to destroy it. Water is incompressible  and the shock of the explosion of a  mass of trinitrotoluene or other high  explosive under wator is fult   iininedi-  Pa trio tic Names  Although native-born Germans,  Mr. and Mrs. G.

Pershing,  and in the Prairie Mound district  school, south of Laclede, he began  his career as a teacher. Edgar  White, in the Philadelphia Public  Ledger, tells the amusing story of  how he got the school.  Dr. W. P. Spurgeon lived just  across the street from the Pershing  home, and the two families were on  terms of intimate friendship. When  young Pershing became an applicant  for the teacher's position at the  Prairie Mound district school, he  asked Dr. Spurgeon to write a letter  of recommendation to Capt. Henly,  the chairman|of the school board.  Dr. Spurgeon, who was well ac  quainted with the captain, wrote  the etter, and the next clay gave it  to Pershing, who was starting out to  see the powerful man of the school  board. The future general was driving a good horse and buggy, .and,  according to the custom of many  young men of the day, wore kid  gloves.  "I advise you to take thosethings  off, John, before you go into Capt.  Henly house," said Dr. Spurgeon.  Pershing smiled and remembered  the caution. The president of the  board scrutinized the letter of recommendation and then asked Pershing  some serrching questions.  "Your letter is all right," admitted Capt. Henly, "and I guess you  are all right, or Doc Spurgeon  wouldn't have recommended you.  So the job is yours. But you bad a  close call, young man! A fellow  from Brookfield came over to see  me the other day, and he had good  letters and answered every question  I asked him well; but the dude wore  k.d gloves in June!

"Now,"  said  the  orator, "here we have  an  object lesson thrust  right   into   our  hands."    He   turned   to a grubby  youth.   "My Iii tie man, if these   two  animals   were   to  fight, what would  you do?" An impressive silence settled upon the crowd while  the   unwashed youth studied  the problem.  "Well, guv-nor," he said at last,  "I  think I'd put a quarter on the black  'un."  Job Printing at The Sun office at  practically the same prices as before  the big war started.

" BICYCLES SOLD ON TERMS.  J. R. cTWOOYBOERj)  Blacksmith and Bicycle Dealer  Opposite Grand Forks Garage  The, chairman of the Canada  food board, in a statement issur-d  today, urged that as a patriotic duty  the regulations ol' the food board  relative to public eating places and  those now governing the manufacture of biscuits, cakes, ice cream,  etc., should be observed voluntarily  by householders. It is necessary  that this should be done, Mr. Thorn  son stated, if Canada were to do her  utmost to send overseas those sup  plies.which were so greatly needed.  Mr. Thomson said that some mis  understanding had occurred as ��������� to  he confectionery products which,  it is now illegal to manufacture for  sale. The list is as follows: Products  known as fresh or puff pastry;  doughnuts or crullers; biscuits or  cakes known as Scotch bread or  cakes; fancy almond macarooms or  like products containing more than  50 prrcent of cane sugar; marsh-  mallow which contains more than  twenty pounds of cane sugar to a  sixty pound batch of mnrshmallow;  cakes or biscuits having on the ex-  tenor products made wholly or in  part of cane sugar or filled with products of cane sugar or with shorten-  irg. except jams, jellies and pure or  compounded fruit.  Reports received from all parts of  Canada indicate that the food board  will have the fullest co-operation of  tbe trade in carrying out the regulations.  There is some confusion as to the  new orders of the Canada food board  in regard to the home manufacture  of candies and pastry. The manufacture of candy is prohibited. The  order in regard to pastries and cakes  reads as follows: "No person shall  make in Canada for private use  French pastries, iced cakes or biscuits or cake with icing of cane sugar between the layers or added to  the exterior."  Just how the food board proposes  to enforce these regulations is not  clear. It is presumed that tbe board  will, depend largely upon me patriotism of the housewives of Canada.  It is also pointed out by the food  board that they would like to see  private individuals follow there  strictive orders placed upon manufacturers, although they are not  making them peremptory.
