The check administered to tie Teu- tons mar only temporary. Grand Duke Nicholas Is now studying the question as to whether it would not be viser for him io evacuate the city and save his armies intact, before their retreat is cut off. The Russians hare fought a valiant fight, and their retreat will be an honorable one. The Teutons are threatening the railway Unes leading to the capital, so that it would be difficult for the Russians to effect a safe retreat at a later "round on the Italian front the Italians have made more progress in their invasion of Austria. The Aus- trian! have apparently evacuated Gor- itza. an important objective point of the Italians, On the western front and in the Dardanellal; minor engagements have taken place, but there is'no news of any movements.

A preliminary audit of the treasury apartment of Manitoba shows the di- ect liability of the province today at bout It was less than when the reins ot goveru- lent were taken over by Roblin. The ioblin government sold of public lands and in addition from Ottawa for ands. under thu lato 'bargain with he central government. The 00 has vanished. When Provincial Treasurer Armstrong said last ses- ion that the delicif amounted to a gure under 5150.000, the unpaid ac- ounts and other liabilities that hould have come under the deficit calling, exceeded Armstrong's tig- res by over one million dollars. Last >ar Manitoba borrowed over 00 for buildings, yet she spent all hat sum and over in Hddi- ion.

Instead of an old timers' picnic we hid an old time rain. Hayti is puttihs on another revolu- tion juit to let the world know that all the war fanatics ara not confined to Germany. It's just a year ago since Germany, via Austria and Servia, began its w-af against practically the civilized world. It is not near its goal yet, and before long Trill be much farther away from It than it is today. A bully can't last for ever. The death of Sir Sandford Fleming ajatn recalls Canada's indebtedness to the Scotch race for many of its of the nation. History will give a foremost place to John A. aiacdonald, Alei T. Oak, Aleian Atr Mackenzie, Donald A. Smith George Stephen, Seo. Brown and Sandfoni men of -Scotch iblrth, with all the perseverance 61 the race. They did much for Canada wpedally in tie early stages ot its development. THE MAN WHO WON THE V. C. When misfortune strikes a new ountry many people become pessi- .istic and lose hope for the future. That was the case with many in this buntry last year. Now that the crop irospects are good the people are for- the drouth and regaining con- dence. All countries have their ups .nd downs. The other day the leg Free Press published an excerpt rom its files 40 years ago about the lieutenant Governor of Manitoba ietting aside a day of prayer to stay a grasshopper plague which was that province. A correspond- jnt of the Free Press also recalls that at the same time the governor of Minnesota issued a similar proclama- ion. In it he said: "In the; shadow of the locust impending renewal threatens he desolation of the land, we humbly nvoke for the efforts we now make or our defence the guidance of that hand which alone is adequate to stay ho pestilence that walketh in dark- ness and the tiestruction that wasteth at noonday." This correspondent says; April 20 was the day appointed, and on the days immediately following the weather, which had been cold, turned to midsummer heat, and the eggs of the pest left in ths ground the pre- vious autumn hatched and the coun- .ry was swarming with millions of minute, locusts. Scoffers at religion were quick to Joint out that the answer to the >rayers was not as the 'Governor in- :ended. and that it would have been better if he had let things alone. However, after the hot spell the weather turned the other way to freez- ng coldness, the young brood of lo- custs were killed, and to this day that has .been a thing of the past. No doubt in 1875 the settlers of Manito-na and Minnesota thought the lountry might never recover.

Wero they dis- honest in February or are they dls- honest now? aiku the Winnipeg Free Prets. Many of the Conservative can- didatM today are men who voted in the legislature against these meas- ures, which they now wholeheartedly support. Manitoba 'will neware of these over night converts. While there it ranch criticism in many parts pf Canada of the apathy of natire youth towards enlist- ment, the Edmonton Bulletin says the native toorn there have done splen- didly. When we say native born, too, it does not mean born in Canada, but horn in 'Edmonton. Amongst the na- tive ,born there are the following, and the names will interest all old time Albertans: Capt.

The appeal was dismissed, and four of the men were sentenced to he shot. The fifth escaped with 15 years' penal servitude. It appears that they treated their feet with nitric and oth- er-acids, in order to paralyze certain muscles. The surgeons state that the agony they suffered in the operation must have been unendurable. In numerous other districts of Hun> gary similar cases have been before the courts, the prisoners in most cas es being Magyars. The Day's Best Story By Rev. Dr. C. W.
