Most Probable Cause of
Amsterdam.— Dr. Alexander Ws
kerlc, Uie Hungarian premier, caused
u sensation in parliament Saturday
with a declaration regarding the Aus
tro Hungarian louses In the last Ital
ian offensive, according to a Budapest
dispatch received here. The premier
said that during the last few day*
exciting rumors were being circulated
regarding the losses. These rumora,
he declared, were much exaggerated.
The Austro-llungarlan armies were
withdrawn on the I'iave front In order
to spare lives, he declared, since they
must have sustained very great lossea
had they held that line.
"Hut, how great are our losses?"
Interrupted Deputy Zllnsky.
"The number of prisoners token was
recently stated to bo 18,000," tho pre
mier replied. "I must, however, cor
rect that statement. The truth is that
the Italians have taken 12,000, while
60.000 Italians fell into our hands. In
the coso of an offensive and a retreat
this figure cannot be termed exces
sively high. Much sadder Is the loss
wo suffered la dead, wounded and
sick; mostly sick. In the tenth and
eleventh Italian offensives wo lost 80,-
000 to 100.000 men. Now, however,
our losses are similar, about 100,000
Great excitement In the chambor
marked this declaration. The premier
"I mention these figures In order to
describe the situation with perfect
sincerity. Also, because our eneinfes
will certainly portray these losses In
an exaggerated fashion and perhaps
also our public opinion.

far surpassing our losses In dead,

that our losses were due to a lack
A deputy here shouted:
"Lack of food!"
The premlor replied to this by de
claring that "our Ifrray never was so
well provided with ammunition as
during tho middle of June."
"It Is true," tho premier added,
"that of throe bridges thrown across
the I'iave, the uppermost unfortunate

SAVE SUGAR CANNING
fuggestions From the Home Demon
.lane S. McKimmon, Stato llomo
Demount ration Agent.
All fruits and berries are much
better in flavor when canned with
a certain amount of sugar, but it
is not necessary I hat enough sugar
should be used to ntrke the fruit
us sweet as may bo desirable when
it is served for the table.
y There is a serious shortage of.
sugar' at. present, which means
that every housewile must be as
economical of its use in canning
ami preserving as is possible. In
stead of the heavy syrups former
ly used, take 1 gallon of water
and boil it with 1 pint (1 pound)
of sugar (imil the sugar is dis
solved, and add this to the fruit
or berries after they have been
packed for canniug. This light
syrup will briug out the flavor of
the fruit and mtfke the amount of
sugnr necessary for a table pro
duet far les* than it would be were
tho fruit canned with no sugar at
all. In oilier words, the use of
even a small amount of sugar
when cauning fruit or berries,
makes it possible for a housewife
to use much less sugar when she
is serving the product, and the
total amount used will be far less
than what would havo been re
quired to sweeten satisfactorily
fruit canned with no sugar at all.
To make certain that full ad
vantage is taken of the natural
sweetness and flavor of fruit or
borri's, let Iltese products become
thoroughly ripe before they are
canned. Gather them on the same
day they are to be canned and get
them to the Conner as quickly as
possible. For every hour that
passes between the gathering and
the canning of berries some of the
natural sweetness is lost. Here is
a good recipe for cauning black
berries, dewberries, etc.:
Gather the berries when ripe,
but firm. Place them in amusliu
sack and plunge into boiling water
one minute (blanch). This will
slightly soften the berries and en
able you to put almost twice/as
many iu a can or jar. It will also
prevent that condition where ber
ries rise to the lop of the jar, leav
ng at least one-third of the space
tilled with juice.
I'ack the sterilized cjin to with
in one-quarter inch of the top
with berries. (A glass jar may be
filled quite full). Fill the spaces
and cover the berries well with a
syrup made of one gallon of water
and one pint of sugar. Place rub
ber rintt on the jar and clamp the
lop lightly. Place in canner.
Process or boil quart glass jars
13 ininu'es, permitting jars to re
main lightly sealed whilo pro
cessing. As yo\i lift jars one at
the time from the canner, seal
lie sure that you use a dinner
or kettle with a tightly-fitting top
when sterilizing your products
and use nono but the best new,
red rubbers for the jars.

The attack of the British was deliv
ered about midway between Haze
brouck and Bethune on a front of
nearly three and a half miles ovqr
territory which the German* recently
have been deluging with shells. Alto
gether the attack was productive of
an average gain of ground to a depth
of nearly a mile. It is not improb
able that the Germans had set their
hearts on the capture of St. Omer
and the railway line running thence
to Calais and Dunkirk.
The stroke of the French troop*
was over a still greater front—four
and a half miles—and at points also
penetrated enemy positions to a good
ly depth, at some points a mile and
a quarter. The evident intention was
further to block the gateway to Part*
through the Villers-Cateretts region.
From Amblemy to the east of
Montgobert the # French carried out
their offensive and overwhelmed
strongly fortified positions of tae en
emy along the entire front. Beside*
the beating back of the enemy, more
than 1,000 Germans fell into the hand*
of the attacking force.
Although the points of .attack were
separated by about 100 miles the ma
neuvers seemingly had been well con
sidered by General Foch, the allied
commander-in-chief, as they were car
ried out synchronously. The strategy
of the double stroke is apparent when
it Is realized that a successful German
