At an early hour today the Canad

only 400 yards from the heart of
the town of Passchendaele.
The troops from overseas fought
their way along the Bellevue spur
for several hundred yards and re
pulsed a heavy counter attack from

which had just been captured at
Crest farm were used in repulsing
the counter attack.
WHY GROW OLD TOO SOON?
lou are mistaken if you think
that there is a relentless natural law
determining when a man should
grow old. The "old age" is condi
tioned mainly on the manner of liv
ing. Man grows old because his body
cells are poisoned. If you want to
modify these conditions for better
and avert all accumulation of waste
matter and poisonous substances in
the digestive tract, take Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine. This
remedy never fails in cases of consti
pation, indigestion, headaches, ner
vousness, and all other troubles con
nected with stomach disturbances.
You will get it at all drugstores. The
price has been slightly advanced but,
in these days, a cheap preparation
must be a trash much worse than
ever before. Refuse it and insist up
on Triner's American Elixir. If you
need a really efficient remedy for
rheumatism, neuralgia, lumbago,
sprains, strains, swellings, etc., in

EFFORT FOR QUICK VICTORY
London, Oct. 30. Commenting on
the advent of American soldiers in
the trenches, the Post says:
"Were the German success in Italy
or in other theaters to become much
greater than the Allies consider
probable, the Germans would still
have to reckon with the fresh, eager,
stern forces of America. It would
seem that Germany Is putting forth
ler utmost efforts during the inter
val which must elapse before the
weight of the United States can be
brought to bear upon her weak and
"If W3 assume for the sake of ar
gument that Germany can conclude
a peace advantageous to herself be
fore the United States can intervene,
it is still to be remembered that
America is pledged to break the mili
tary power of Germany and make
no peace with the Hohenzollerns."
Amsterdam, Oct. 30. The Aus
tro-German offensive against Italy,
according to Vorwaerts of Berlin
was not undertaken in an aggressive
spirit with the object of conquest
but solely to bring peace nearer.
