' London Feb. 9. The fierce German attacks on the Warsaw
front is again at a standstill according to reports from 'both Berlin
and Pctrograd. On the other hand the Russian capital reports that
en each wing of the eastern battle line the Russian offensive has
been resumed. The official Russian communication claims that the
Russians have made great progress on the Hungarian side of the
wartern-. Carpathian' mountain ranges as well as having gained a
success in Mezolabori-s which resulted in driving back the enemy with
considerable losses in guns and prisoners.
...The Austro-German army is said to have met with reverses on
the C.alician side of the Uzsok-aii JtekiJ- passes. Balancing these
Russian successes are the Russian admission of .their retirement be-
fore ftronjr forces in Dukowina and the Austrian claim of having
entered the'vo.wn of Kimolang in Crown Land. In eastern Prtft-""
sia the fighting has apparently assumed a more desperate character.;
RUSSIA.-- DlftvIA MEETS AT PEROGRAD
Petrograd Feb. 9. The Duma held its first session today since
August. Owing to the change in conditions between Unpeople the
"overnment as a result of the war it is expected the session will be
marked by events that may make history in the development of po-
litical intuitions. The new spirit of the Duma was reflected at once
after its -.formation of a demand for greater popular rights and the
abolition of political and religious disability.

ADMINISTRATION TALKS ON FLAG INCIDENT.
Washington Feb. 9. The administration view of the hoisting
of an American flag on the Lusitania as stated today on the highest
authority is that the use of other flags by the ships of nations at war
is such a customary practice that no formal protest can be made but
that it be proper to send to Great Britain a note pointing out the
dangers to neutral shipping which may follow if such practice is

Patrons' Club of City Will Give
Colonial Party at High School
The spectacle ot two children car-
rying a wooden pail of water from a
neighboring well to the school room
where it was "passed around" to the
pupils was a familiar sight thirty
years ago .before the era of modern
sanitary equipment. W'itlt the roller
towel the soap box and wash stand
and the town pump with its solitary
dipper. The tilings have be?n rele-
gated to the scrap heap of antiquity.
Today such a thing is difficult to
find. Even the wilds of western Kan-
sas and Oklahoma one finds all school
buildings equipped with the sanitary
drinking fountain. It is indeed pe-
vuliar in a city like Guthrie with Its
paved streets and splendid public
buildings to see the old water bucket
and pump still in use by the school
children. This is what the Patrons'
club of Guthrie has recognized.
They are therefore taking sleps to
install the uodern drinking fountains
in every r.chool building of the city.
Surely everyone will support them ih
this movement. The Colonial Party
Feb. 22nd at the City Hall is given
for the purpose raising the money
needed. He there and help them out
as well as have a good time.
