ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The welcome news that -the Tcu tonic forces in Poland, in spile the vastuess of iheir offensive muvi-ment luive as yet.been unable to make any decisive gains, is contained in yes terday's despatches. The huge en veloping operation of the Germans is threatening: all the strategic points o; the Russians who, however, are .ing valiantly, and at one or two points have ibetn able to thrust fcack the Teuton This German offen- sive is on a much vaster scale than any operations that have yet been 1 undertaken, and the whole system of Russian railway defences on their western border is threatened. A niuntli or so of stubborn resistance on the part of the Russians, however, will render it almost impossible for tiie Germans to accomplish their ends. Over on the western front there has been no change in the situation, aad no indication of the expected of- fensive on the part of the Allies. The Italians are said to have taken 1000 prisoners in a recent engagement on the Austrian front. Silence shrouds the operations in the Dardanelles. The British losses to date are re- ported to he A large propor- tinn of officers lias been lost. POINT OF VIEW YOUR KING AND COUNTRY NEED YOU RIGHT NOW. Swat the "millers."

The .great and growing scarcity of potash because of the German pro- hibition of export 1ms forced up the price of muriate of potash in the United States from about 540, which is'tho normal rate, to per ton. Not only have tho of fertilizer been hard hit. but soap making, and glass making, ami the and chemical Industries generally, have been so hampered in their operations that a widespread de- mand 1ms arisen for the development of potash production on a scale which fret) America from dependence on German potash. The most prom- ising plan for producing some con- siderable part of the million tons of potash hitherto imported annually is now teing worked out in the Scaiies Lake district of California, where a company is erecting a: plant which will pump from deep levels two mil- lion gallons of brine daily. From this brine it is estimated there will be recovered tons of potash a year, besides larg-e quantities of soda -ash and borax. Agents of the United States government who have examined the property are confident that there -win be a large potash out- put.

Lethbridge should prepare-now to observe in e anniversary of Britain's entrance into the "war. We should make it a day for impressing, upon out -people that Canada Is playing a real part in the war and that its i citizens ranstjnake sacriGces in order that Canada and the Empire shall he victorious.- We should also utilise the J day to re-affirm our determination to Bee- the war through, to a victorious conclusion. Arrangements should be under "way delay. This is the form of a resolution suggested by the central committee for the-war anniversary meeting: "Resolved, that on the anniversary of-the declaration of a righteous war, this: meeting the citizens of records its indexible determination lo continue to a victorious end the struggle in maintenance of those ideals of liberty and 'justice which are the common and sacred cause of the .'Allies." "Where -will you be -when the sold- iers come marching home? Will you toe made welcome by the grateful citi- zens? Will you 'be wearing a medal pinned on your breast by His Majesty King George Or will you 'oe hid- ing your head In some dark spot and wishing that you had taken advantage of the opportunity to do your bit? Sien you will remember that you actually being coaxed to enlist at. one time. ''There will come aHime when the Bhirker -who does not go to the front, toe able to find a place-dark enough in m-hich to hide his head." TIuiKe were the words of no less a man that Principal Gordon, head of University, Kingston, when to recruits recently. '-it IB dtegmcefuV' lie said, "for a Hilaire Belloc, one of the foremost students of the war. and a man whose views are always given very serious consideration, figures that if ihe Rus- sian army in its retreat is not broken up and remains intact, Germany must suffer a strategical defeat In this regard he says: IE at the eud of all this vast ex: penditure of munitions and men on the part of the enemy ilip Russian army remains intact, if it has not been separated or destroyed, then the enemy has not acquired a decision, and strategically lie has suffered de- feat, in spite of the political and the economic advantages accruing to him !rom his advance. Unless the Rus- sian army shall have been broken into two or more separate units, ant the enemy have restored his Hbert> of manoeuvre on this front, the en- emy's prodigal expenditure in life and ammunition cannot be justified. It must -be remembered in this con- nection that Napoleon was drawn to Warsaw and then annihilated, and might it not be possible that the Ger- mans will be drawn so far away from their source supply by the Rus- sians that they might also suffer one of the crushing defeats of tlie war. So far Hilaire Belloc thinks that the only German gain through the retreat of the Russians'is its ability to get mto the -possession of the petrol sup- ply In Galicia. He further says: Tlie clearing of Russia from the Carpathians and the saving of Hun- gary from the threat of invasion do not constitute a decision in., them- selves, nor do they vitally influence he winning or the losing of this great campaign.

It is a story which helps one to understand the British soldier, A certain officer who had taken part in the storming of Hilt 60, and who lay for thirteen hours on the ground grievously was hrought eventually to this London hospital, and was visited hy my friend '.he surgeon. The surgeon asked him, '.'How did you feel, now, .lying there unattended for thirteen The officer replied, "I'm ashamed to. te'il you. I very-' badly. I groa'n- (Jd for hours." Then his eyes shone, and he saidj "I felt so ashamed that I apologized to the wounded Tommies near enough to hear me. And do you know what.they said .to me? They said, 'You go .on groaning, sir; ,it eases you; never mind us; yon were aot brought .un as we were; we .know ;hat; it's easier for us to hoar "pain than what it is for you.' And that wasn't all. Do you know, some of :hose splendid fellows crawled up to ine in, the darkness on their hands and knees, tn'spite of their wounds, they really, they kiss- ed me."
