The German offen- sive, recently resumed "with renewed prigrr and terrific fighting, is still Jftuenace, and the French are not in- n to make light, of it. However, confidence is unshaken, aud '.vhile they have been forced to give jftray at several points, have gained iground at others, so that the honors 5are still fairly even with the Germans Cholding no particular point of van- Stage save Fort Douamont. The German public, it is said, are with them thun use them for starting a fire. If hundreds of these reportb could be curtailed in the number pub- lished ami distributed and more of the agricultural reports printed and dis tributed it would be better for the country. Col. Currie's suggestion that a cen- tral editorial office should be estab- lished for the purpose of reducing the size of reports, avoiding duplication and the needless expense of carting loads of publications from the print- ing; office to the departmental offices and thence to the post office, should be considered by the authorities. Care- ful revisal of the malting lists and the separation of matter that Is really of public interest would help to duce expenditure. Then the use of unnecessarily expensive paper adds to the cost, as does the negligence shown in the preparation of copy for the printer. This last alone means 060 a year iu the correction of errors- that could easily bave been avoided. Col. Currie Is chairman of the print- g committee and he knows what he s talking about. He is a supporter of the government .and tho govern- ment should heed his adrice.
