Offensive,   Declares   the
British Press
Commenting on the German offensive, the London Star says: "The
third phase of the battles which
commenced on March 21 will decide
lhc fate of Germany. ]t cannot decide the fate ol" the allies, for whatever may be lhc issue, they will
fight on until America and thc Americans can turn the scale and deliver
lhe world forever from Prussian hegemony. The Germans arc not going
lo win; there are great ; rmies of
lhe  French  between  them and Paris.
"We expect these, armies, with the
rapid increase iu the American army,
'to beat them Hal. We decline to go
half way toward defeat of any kind.
We believe in victory and nothing
but victory.
"We have beaten the Germans in
a hundred battles since Mons. W'c
shall  beta  Ihem  now."

I believe  that in   lhat new era  the
English-speaking peoples are destined to take a leading pari. I believe that the co-operation     between
Giyat  Britain  and    America is    long
goihig to survive  the    necessities    of
this    immediate and tragic    moment,
and J  believe  that    if it  survives  it,
asl itelicve it will, the fruit of that
union  will  not    bc    thc    domination
oyer the world of any special type of
civilization,  of agiy  particular   world
power, but rather that    opportunities
will bq given for each race, for each
nation, to develop that which is best
in  its  own  character,  that which  its
own history suggests is the true line
of its    development, and that    under
the aegis of a _Avorld peace, which it
will  bc    the  business  of  the    allied
nations  to  guard,    all  the   family of
man may find a higher, a freer, and
a safer development than    they ever
yet found in the history of the world.

Home Water Supply
A Good Roomy Bath to Replace the
Old Wash Tub
The drudgery of the farm and
farm home life must bc absolutely
uprooted, and thrown out, if the farm
children and others are to stay
there. The farm home has more
inducements to offer, if thc farmer
will but take advantage of the opportunities offered. Thc city and its
home cannot compete with the farm.
In the country you can have_ every
modern convenience offered in the
city, and in addition, the freedom of
the country, its healthful surroundings and its unexcelled food stuffs.
What more can one want?
Home water works should bring
with it thc bath room with all its
facilities, a good roomy bath tub
to replace the old wash tub or wash
bowl by the kitchen stove. How
many bovs and girls havc wished
for a good, big splash in plenty of
water instead of the "teaspoon bath -
from a wash bowl by thc side of. the
stove. The boys- go to the creek
because of their love of plenty of
water and a good swim. Why not
run the creek through thc house and
give the girl an equal show with the
boy at a decent sized body of water,
not only in thc summer but in the
winter as well. Thc old folks will
also appr: -iale the bath room with
all its conveniences. And think of
thc convenience when there is sickness in thc house.
With all these reasons for installing running water in our farm homes,
it seems that the most vital one to-
dav is that it will eliminate waste
labor. This saving of labor allows
that thc same amount can be expended in a more useful place. If
the men are benefited by it, then thcy
havc more time to put in on the raising of crops and stock. The women,
however, are to be more benefited,
hence they can and will bc able to
do other things.
Supplies for installing wajer works
arc more expensive now than they
havc been for some time. But then,
too, labor costs more; farm products
arc bringing more, hence there is
more inducement to buy. There is
no indication that supplies will _ be
cheaper for some years, so thc thing
to do is to get at it at once���buy before prices go higher and get it
while you can.
The cost of water works for'farms
vary according to the size of the
farm, family, kind of well and cx-
tensiveness of thc system to bc installed. A very modern system can
be put in for as low as $25 or $30.
From that amount on up to $o00 can
be spent, depending on factors mentioned above. For information and
help on thc subject, there are several
sources open to thc average farmer.

alive and tip to thc minute will be

The Largest Flour
Mill in Canada
A Guide To Peacs Talk
Construction  of New  Flour  Mill, at
Rapid progress is being made in
the construction of thc ncw flour mill
which is being erected in Calgary,
Alberta, and which, when completed,
will be thc largest in Canada, and
one of thc most up-to-date mills on
the American continent.
Plans have been laid for a remarkable output of flour in thc mills and
storage of grain in the elevators. The
mill itself will be built in two units,
one for the preparation of export
flour, and the other for flour to bc
used on the local market. Thc capacity of the mill will bc from 6,000
to 7,000 barrels of flour daily, and
the capacity of the elevator will be
a million bushels.
It is estimated that from three to
four hundred men will bc employed
in the mill and elevator when completed. The cost of constructing the
plant will bc well on-to a million
Situated as it is right in lhc heart
of a country where the best of hard
spring wheat is grown, and having
most favorable marketing facilities,
Calgary is an ideal location for such
a mill.

The Hun Sergeant Had a Wdnderful
During the invasion df Belgium a
captain in a Prussian regiment got
hold of a hundred fresh eggs somewhere, and, wishing to give his faithful soldiers a treat���there were just
exactly a hundred men in his company, "as it happened���hc turned the
tiggs over to the top sergeant and
told him to see that every man in
the command had an egg for his
breakfast next morning. But the
company cook smashed one of the
eggs, and next morning there were
only ninety-nine eggs to be distributed among a hundred hungry soldiers. The sergeant was puzzled at
iirst. lie knew he had to obey orders. For a while he didn't know-
just how-to distribute those eggs.
.Finally," says.the narrator of Uie

Tiie German government could
have had an honorable peace on the
eastern front, with ample guaranties for thc future security of the
empire. Russia offered such a peace.
Russia was helpless. By simply
reaching out its hand Berlin could
havc had exactly such a peace with
Russia as it says it wants���a peace
that fully secured its own independence and laid the basis for friendly
self-respecting relations between the
two nations in thc future.
It got Russia into the council

Assisting Manitoba Farmers to Purchase Cattle
Under a scheme of the Manitoba

The census and statistics oflice of
the Canadian government has just

"What struck the spectators
about the American soldiers
marched through our streets on Saturday was their extreme seriousness,
the grim determination of their bearing. They looked neither to the
right nor left, but kept their eyes
straight in front of them, paying
little or no attention to thc cheering
crowds. And the crowds really did
cheer, far more than a London
crowd usually does. Not a single
man in thc ranks was talking to his
neighbor, although there must have
been an almost irresistible temptation
lo exchange remarks, for thc majority of the men were seeing London
for the first time. This was a test
of discipline. The average height of

Russia's Hereditary Enemy
Revolt of the Real Russian   Against
the Enemy of  Civilization
The hereditary enmity of the Russian to the German is gradually
emerging and crystallizing amid the
general ferment. Russians of every
degree are finding in their common
hatred of-the invader a nexus of union. The most democratic among
them must perceive by this time that
there can be no freedom under thc
German, and that tlicir German Socialist comrades have cynically betrayed them to the. military autocracy. It would bc improper for this
country to lake sides in the internal
politics of any country, but Great
Britain and her allies should at
once cordially recognize the slow revolt of thc real Russian against thc
enemy of civilization, the enemy
who, aflcr the revolution, robbed
Russia of its fruits and brought her
lo the dust. It is for the friends of
Russia to help her to rise again from
that intolearble humiliation. ��� London   Morning   Post..

The laws of the universe are order

like success.    God helps those who
help themselves.    Remember this
in your prayers and keep on doing
your  bit.    God  means  the good,
and evil is a  phantom   of the flesh
that disappears when exposed long
euongh to the rays of love, justice,
mercy, honesty, and freedom.  The
flesh dies out the  Bpirife is eternal.
That is the reason why we will win
the war, and benefit the  masses of
tho  German   people   as  much   as
ourselves.    We are fighting to kill
the flesh phantoru3 of lust,   greed,
fear,   envy  and  hatred  that have
obsessed     the      German     nation
through tho influence of its rulers.
These things  must be annihilated

Red Cross Dance at Denoro

Jftv America and England the
making and selling of booze is an
aid to tbe kaiser, and a detriment
to the Allies.
i\c man is a true patriot, who,
taking advantage of war condi-
t-ious, charges too much for his
labor or goods.
"Weddixg rings have cured many
a case of so called love, bufe we do
not think that auy kind of a ring
will cure rheumatism.
Ou Friday night the Denoro Red
Cross Society gave a Dance on
their new pavilion at Loon Lake,
which recently had been erected
by the employees of the Emma
The unsettled appearance of the
weather did not prevent some 35
autos from coming from Grand
Forks, Greenwood, Phoenix and
Eholt to help celebrate the first
Dance held at Loon Lake. Music
was supplied by the Werner
orchestra of Grand Forks, and the
pavilion which is 30 x 30 waa kept
filled; when some 42 couples was
seen dancing afe one time. Ice
cream, coffee and cake was sold
aud a goodly,sum was realized for
the Red Cross.
Too much praise cannot be given
to Mrs. and Miss Nordman, Mrs.
Parker and Mrs. Charlie Hanna
who worked hard to make the
evening a success, and all joined
in saying it was one of the jolliest
times spent around Denoro.
To Light Consumers
At the Annual Meeting of the.undersigned company, it was decided that on
and after the first of September next, the
rate for light in residences would be 75
cents for each light per month; instead
of 50 cents as heretofore. There will be
110 change in the rate for stores and
offices, which has always been $1 a light
per inonth.
This change has been decided upon in
order to keep the plant running without
loss. The higher cost of operating and
shrinkage in receipts, has forced the company to make this advance in price,
which cannot be looked upon as a hardship by the consumers, when we compare
our sister town of Phoenix, where the
rate has always been $1 a month for each
light, with a strictly 12 hour service;
lights off from sunrise to sunset. Greenwood has always had a 24 hour service,
when we were able to supply it, although
receiving no remuneration whatever for
a tlaylight service.
Thc West Kootenay Power & Light
Co. advanced their rates some time ago,
as all other, companies have been forced
to do owing to the higher cost of everything. This rate of 70 cents will not
effect those who are now paying ��3 a
month or more for light in residences.
The lights that are not paid for in a
reasonable time will be cut off.

The cost of the war to all nations up to
dale, including the loss by destruction in
Europe is $140,000,000,000. This equals
the entire value of all the real and per.-,
sonal property of the United States. The
total amount borrowed by the countries
of the Eiiteue Allies is So billions, while
Germany has borrowed 25 billions, and
the Teutonic Allies as a whole about 35
billions. .������'..
About 20 billion has been raised by
direct taxation in the Entente nations
and about one-fifth this amount in
Germany. The latter country did not
increase taxes at all the first year of the
war, holding.out the hope of indemnities
to her people which decision accounts in
large.part for the esprit du corps of the
German nation the. firft two years of the
war. .' Now the taxes in Germany are beginning to bear down heavily on all industries.
The loss of property in Northern
France in the last four years is not as
grc;it :is might be imagined. The land
cannot be utterly destroyed and neither
can the coal and iron mines. But it is
safe to'-say that about one-tenth.of all the
wealth of France has been destroyed by
the. war, or at least $6,500,000,000.
The states and cities of Germany have
raised and spent over .seven billions on
their own account since the war broke
out, and the ;total debt of Germany, including the empire, the states and the
cities, is about twice that of Great Britain,
while the wealth of the two nations on
the day war was.declared was almost
exactly the same, viz: about 90 billion
France has, of course, suffered most
heavily, lor in addition to a total bonded
and floating debt of fully .20 billion, she
has a total wealth of not more than So
billion to pay. willi, but her credit, owing
to the-resource fulness of her people, is
still good, whereas thai of Austria is
Out of it all, so far, only two nations

Don't Overlook The Possibilities Of The Telephone
Did you ever notice how some people shout into the telephone? They think because the party they are talking to is
some distance away, that the tone of voice must be loud. They
forget that the conversation tone is all that is needed.
It is the same with the long distance telephone. Some
people have the idea that because the party wanted is distant;
it is not possible to talk to them���the voice cannot carry
that far. The voice may not carry that far, but it is easily
carried hy wire any distance, owing to modem invention. No
matter how far your friend is away, you can couverse by telephone without difficulty.   Try it some time.
