Successful Operation Carried
Out During Night Between
Bourlon Wood and
British Army Headquarters
France, Nov. 30. There was little in
fantry fighting during the night, but
the enemy artillery was very active,
especially against Graincourt, Bour
lon wood an.r Marcoing.
A successful operation was carried
out by the British yesterday between
Bourlon wood and Moeuvres, by
which they advancer! their line a few
hundred yard3 and secured a section
of the ridge. The attack was met by
an .exceedingly heavy barrage from
theGerman guns and an intense ma-
cnine gun nre irom tne direction ot
Bourlon village. The assaulting in
fantry, however, pushed through, and
this morning the troops were holding
the new positions strongly, thereby
straightening the line and giving the
British command of an important
piece of high ground.
The enemy attempted a raid to the
south of Gavrelle late yesterday, but
the. advancing. infantry was caught by
the British machine gun, rifle and ar
tillery fire and driven off before
reaching the trenches. , . -
The weather this morning was fa
vorable to military operations. The
day was fine and mild and the roads
were so dry that the dust was flying,
The British are continuing the dig-ging-in
process all along the new
National . Live Stock Ass'n.

Persistent Advertising Is the Road
. About the Cost of "War" Paper
- With its generating plant working at more than nor
mal, speed to keep step with the growth of Omaha and
to irlaintain its part of $he business activity necessary r
for thb ultimate winning of the war, YOUR ELECTRIC
SERVICE COMPANY has been, obliged to meet as
tonishing cost increasesin its mdre important materials
such as copper, coal and poles.
The agility with which" the prices of these necessi
. ' ties' have climbed since Uncle Sam rolled up his sleeves
last spring has been detailed in previous articles. It was
pointed out therein that this company has faced this tre
mendously increased expense with decreased revenue, "
;;since electric current rates in Omaha have been substan-.
tially reduced within the past. year. While wages, sala-
- ries and merchant's returns have been steadily on the -.
.upgrade, somewhat offsetting the high cost of living for
the people, the opposite has been the case .with YOUR
ELECTRIC SERVICE COMPANY. r
, , What is more, in the smaller items of imperative ex
penditure on your part, the situation is the same as in
, the larger.- . . , ' ,4; ' '
; We have over 30,000 accounts in Omaha, which re
quire many;books and ledgers for the keeping of rec-:
. ords in - our offices, and which also necessitate, of
- course, that number of statements being mailed each
month to our patrons. In some cases receipts, too, must
' b mailed. . I v r-.r,- . ,.;
-: ? ; Paper for these records and statements now costs
us forty-five per cent more than the same paper a year -ago!,?.
So the schedule of cost increases thus far de

: You need go no further than the very publication in
.which this article appears to attain a pretty lucid idea
of the seriousness of the paper problem. The white print
paper ndw.bef ore your eyes costs about 70 more than
a year ago, which will be verified by the publishers.
(Every individual, as weli as every industry, is now.
joined whole-heartedly Jn the business of winning this
war,and this is done cheerfully, enthusiastically, pa
triotically, without regard to sacrifice, over the entire
nation. , .
We only wish'it understood that we, too, are makmg
