' THE PROGRESS ^ OF THE W|R. The German offenilve has once more been reiumed, ttUs time on what ia known as the Aisne front, In the vicinity of Solagons. Strong attacks orer a wide front in this region have been commenced, but the official reports today show that the 'British are resifiUng '\vlth all their well-known valor, and iliccesrfuily. This front la more adapted to allied defence than other fronts, for it is more hilly and wooded, and offers far greater advantages to the allies in their prc-aent situation. " THE SPIRIT OF OUR AMERICAN ALLY. In the Calvary Kpiscopal Church ol Rochester, Minn., C.S.A.. the following verse has been'added to the national anthem, "America", which is suns tu tile same tone as our own nation�l nntheni, "God Save the King": . FOR OUR BRITISH AI^UES. Two countries of the free Unite on land and sea Thla hymn to raise; One race of ancient tame. One tongue, one lolth we claim, One God, whose gloribua name We love and praise. It iB fine to think, says an exchange, �( the Bolld truyi on which that declaration of truth is founded. arotlnd from an adverae or debit balance ot $162,000,000 in 1914 to a credit balance ot 1624,000,000 In 1818 will give Canada's export trade � momentum of Itaelf enabltnc her merchants and raanufacturera to ihaJiiuIq an average ezoess ot 40 per cent, ot sales over import*. ' Exports to the United Kingdom roae from $216,000,000 tor the year ended March 31, 1914, to �742,000,000 for the year 1917. For th� year to March 31, 1918, these exports clip the 800,000,000 mark. Comparleon ot figures will show greater relative gains in percentages than perhaps in any other country. A people 80 enterprising and spirited may be relied on to do their ut-mostJo,hold the pace they eot in securing a share ot war trade. Will they do it? They will have a debt moderate and well within the financial grasp of any Canadian parliament. They have shown the ncceBsary will and capacity. They will have the waree to sell. A world half-starved and half In Industrial paralysis will go to market for the food and raw material es-ential to life and recuperation. The things which Canada produces from land, water and forest aro the necessaries which at least in the first years ot the afler-war period wilt al-truct commerce, ehlpplng and banking. He would be bRnd who could not read In the figures 'of trade a summary of Canada's position and opportunity in the era of commercial reconstruction, which Is to follow. T E CAVM CHARGE Orvillc Bates Tells of Glorious Work of Canadian Cavalry -Red Triangle Work '^PICKED UR IN PASSING hd^T kA JUNKERS AND . SOVIETS f A correspondent wrote the New, York Outlook: Will you please have ao article prepared for The Outlook telling us, your readers, who comprise the "Junker" ciasB of Germany-also what are the Soviet* of Russia, I have asked some j intelligent persons, � including an editor of an important magazine-all an-wer, "I don't know." Aa we understand it, the Outlook replied, the word "Junker" is an East PruBsian corruption ot 'Jung Herr' (which may be Englished Young Gentleman) and is applied to the scion of a noble house which has always devoted itself to military service'. The ncestors of the modem Junkers were .the feudal nobility ot East Prussia, inhabiting lands not originally Ger-* man. The military Junker nobility became one ot the pillars of Prusslanlsm, the other being the bureaucracy. Bismarck was a good example ot a Junker. The .word "soviet" (pronounced approximately "so-vyet," with the accent on the second syllable) Is e(iuiv- \ alent to our word "counsel" (advice) and "council" (an assemblage of peo; pie, temporary or permanent, for con-, fUltatlon); but in Russian the, same word serves for both. It was so as well in ehrly English. The distinotion. be-; tween "counsel" and "council" In. our' language la comparatively modern. "Soviet" means primarily "advice." It ifaa the name of the old Russian Cab-iaet, and also.of the upper bouse of Parliament under the old regime. The word "Soviet," however,.Isjnot uaad In Russia 'to designate \ town � council of a zematvo. The tows coun-�U (meaning a board ot aldermen) Ms always callad a duna (from domat; to. Oiliikj, and the word "city" or "town'"i la a4iled' to distlnKnlsh it Irom the )m-' ysrlal Duma, or lower house of Parlia-liant Coaaequently there are many muBleipal dumaa In Russia at well SI tl^e natloaal or Imperial Duma, the lowar houae ot Parliament. Neither ~*l tka word "aovlat" aspUed to a tam-"aainatvo" is derived from WSlyar-lsiut- aad means primarily n saaQOihlafe of land holders or own-rf. With theae two exceptions the word "aoTlet" ia applied \,a any body Q( mas that wa should call a "council" .,��, for laaUnce, the Soviet ot Work-DM'a and Soldiers' Delafates.
