The duty of the legislative branch of the government is to provide such funds as the business needs of the State require. The duty of the execujive branch of the government is to jsee to it that those funds arie honestly and economically ex|)ended. With these! two duties performed the administration may go before the people with a clear consctence and with lie knowledge that whether it receives tlielr approval or not It has deserved it. 1 TELEPHONES.

It equally natural that the RepUbllca^ House should be; anxious to keep t^e ligures down. Even iin election to the I.«gi8'ature does hoi al4aij8 lift: a map above the possibility di playing politics, and members of a legislative body have been known to attack an administration most severely for .^xtravagance in appropriations .which they themselves voted to make. On-jthe other hand men have been known to vote against appro- ipriatioiTs, the need of which they pri- A-ately admitted,, under the influence of an idei that "good politics" is rather to foUo^'cd than good business. These are ordinary human frailties fof which due allowance must be m^de. And making this due allowance in this present; instance, is it not entirely I likely that jthe error or both sides is about equaj, so the proper correction of it would-;be to split the difference? That difference just now appears to be about 11 .500,000. That is to say, the aggregate of the appropriation bills passed by the Senate exceeds by I a million apd a half tli^e aggregate of the House iills. Most of this difference would] appear to be made up of the sums tiUowed the State institutions by the Senate wiiich.are denied by the Hoijtse. As wc understand it, the Senate 'appropriations are practically those 4sked for by the Board of AdministraQon which has charge of the institutions, and while they doubt less are litieral, there can hardly be a question that they are extravagant. Certainly if jan error Is to be made at all in resp0pt to these mstitutions it should be ntade on the side of generosity rather-than niggardliness. The State can naiich better aJEord to spend more mone| upon these institutionf than may perhaps be actually needed than to cripple them by spending less' it is to be remembered^referring only to the slate University—that no new buildinjgs have been erected for itwo years, yith the result, that the present quarters ai'e crowded beyond, all possibili|y of really flpst THF Kllin flF nfiHTIIifi JT IQ 'Russians at Their Ruined Home in Sochaczew inC mU Ur rmnillWl II ID, ^^^^^ Germans and Foes Raged Across the Land THE TRE.VCHES jlFTKIt AX AS- 8AULT FAIKLY I»Kll' l{L(M»II.

"Our victory next day was still -rcater. Wc took three trenches, ly- ns one behind the other, made 12 .'f nrisoners, and drove the F'reiicb at 'east 300 metres back and down into a 1eep gulch. Our 'recipe' ,was ugain •he same—first bombs and mines, then ourselves. -With'a few quick tiger- bounds we were in the trench. These bombs, cast at such short distances lavc a frightful effect. We saw French arms and legs flying out of the trench, irobably 3f) feet high, ,-\nd every bomb struck home. iEven before we wsprang forward for our final storm we .saw their raised hand and heard them in their trenches so iiiteously •rying •quarter, quarter.' that our men needed scarcely to make further use of thei!• arms.
