If you are forty and thinking of
crawling on the sorap heap, or. if
you are letting the old sge idea
potien yon. causing yon to feel
that the best of yonr life is spent,
yon are doing yourself the in
justice of a lifetime. Unless yoo
hare been a "pig-like human,"
over-fed and underworked, and
have acquired one of these fat,
flabby, bulgy waistlines, in other
words, if you are not "f-rty,

able to liok a Jess Willard or win
an athletic championship for tht
simple reason that he has lived
short on exercise and leng on ap

To the man that is forty who hat

Bnssians Lannch General Offensive
Actively Engaged Over Pripet River Front
to Rumanian Frontier, About 250 Miles.
Juue 5. The long-expected gen

against the Teuton Allies seemicg
ly has begun. Both Petrograd
and Vienna report that the Rub
sians are actively engaged over i
front from the Pripet river to the
Roumanian frontier, about 250
The Russians are using large
numbers of guns and men, and ao
cording to Petrograd, have achiev
ed successes on many important
sectors, taking 15,000 prisoners
and man1' suns and destroying or
capturing Teuton positions.
Along the Bess arabian front on
the lower Stripa, and in Volhynis
the Russian attacks have been par
ticularly violent. In the region
of Olvka. in the zone of the Vol
hynian fortress triangle, the Rub

kept the infantry of both sides in
their trenohes and only bombard

Vaux and Damloup, northwest of
Verdun, the bombardment on both
sides hag continued while to the
west of the Meuse, the shelling
has been only intermittent.
On the remainder of the front
in France, except around Ypres,
the situation is reported quiet.
About Ypres, however, the Ger
mans and Canadians are continu
ing the violent fighting that has
been in progiees Bince last week
when the Germans captured Can
adian positions whioh later were
re-taken in hand - to - hand and
bombing encounters. Sunda-y the
Germans agtin forced the Caua

are disputing strenuously the ef
forts of the Teutons to oust them
from the remainder of the posi

triaus have made a further ad
vance into Italy in the Cengio
zone. The town of C alcana and
5,000 Italian prisoners, 3 cannon,
11 machine guns and 126 bomb
throwars were captured.
Rome admits the retirement of
the Italians in the Cengic zone,
but says that in the Delgone Val

were repulsed with heavy losses.

Briliai Moinu Loss 4,000 Seamen
Loss of Life Ib Great Nival Battle of Nsrth
Sea was Frightful.
London, June 8. The latest re
ports from the British fleet, from
uetural vessels which witneBBed
parts of the great naval battle in
the North Sea and from survivors,
cause the British public to believe
that the engagement was not so
near a defeat as at first appeared,
and in no wise a disaster. The
British losses, with all the craft
engaged accounted for, were three
battle cruisers, thres cruisers and
eight destroyers.
The German losses are believed
to have been about toe same
number cf ships, although a muoh
less aggregate of tonnage. British
naval experts maintain that Great
Bntian continues to noid toe su
premacy of the sea by a safe mar
gin and that her enormous navy
could better aflord the losses suf
fered than could the smaller Ger
man establishment. The first re
ports of the heavy Iosb of life, un
happily, have not been revised.
Great Britian mourns for more
than 4,000 of her, best seamen,
and the whole nation is oppressed
with sadness, which is reflected in

There were some 6,000 men on
the ships which sank, and only a
few hundred have been saved.
The horrors o f modern naval
warfare, far ezoeediug those when
wooden ships fought snd continu
ed to float even when they ceased
to be fighting units, were realized
to their utmost. From five of
the largest shipat-rhich went un
der with a complement of more
than 4,000 men, only seven junior
officers and a few, seamen were
rescued. ,

Germans Fail at Fort Yam

Trencbes but Were Driven Out.
Paris, June 4 -Several attempts
by the Germans last night and th e
morning to turn the Frenoh posi
tions at Fort Vaux, on the Ver
dun front from the southeast,
were unsuccessful, the War Office
announced this afternoon. The
night attaoks resulted in their
gaining a foothold in the French
