The basement is the only floor that
needs remodeling to any extent.
Where the basement valuts come, the

toilets, however, should be changed
into the large room in the rear of
the basement. This will make ex
cellent toilets, as they will have
plenty of light and ventilation. The

Septic Tank in Building.
The boiler and ventilation needs
but very little attention and both are
of ample capacity to easily take care
of the building. i
There is one thing worthy of men
tion at this time, that means con
siderable, and that is the toilets, and
the septic tank that are in connec
tion with the building. This, I un
derstand, cost the school board $1,-

county, and makes a modern court
I would recommend that the in

WATCHFUL WAITING POLICY
ADOPTED BT RUSSIAN BEAR
(Continued from Page 1)
Russian cabinet has been reformed
with particular reference to a more
active conduct of the war the peas
ants who used to drink vodka have
become used to a vodka less Russia
and are putting their profits from
vodkaless harvestshence bigger
Grand Duke Nicholas has been su
perseded by the czar as commander
in-chief and has taken hold of the
important campaign in the Caucasus.
Stirred to renewed vigor under its
ruler, the army has used the shells
born of the industrial mobilization
and repulsed the enemy in the vic
inity of Riga, besides putting him on
the defensive elsewhere.
Is Getting Munitions.
These and many more things have
happened in Russia since the double
eagle whacked the bear on the snout.
The roar for munitions which the
bear let out soon reached Japan,
England and America, and for the
last three months rifles, shells and
cannon have been pouring into the
Pacific and Arctic ports. Canadian
ice-breakers will keep Archangel open
all winter for munition-laden ships
from America. Heavily loaded trains
are crawling across the Siberian
plains in almost endless procession,
stopping here and there to deposit
rifles and cartridges for the men who
have been training with sticks and
only lacked the arms wherewith to
join the armies now preparing for
Russia's future campaign.
Has 5,000,000 Troops.
With the beginning of the New
Year various estimates place the
number of fresh-armed Russian troops
at five million. At least two L-aillion
more are being armed at the rate of
over half a million a month. Aii ad
ditional million of tweiily-year-o/d
youths were called upon December
4. These will take their places in
the ranks early in the year.
Russia's veterans already holding
the battle-line from Riga to the Black
sea and operating in the Caucasus
are estimated to total at least 4.-
000,000, all hardy fighters, making
the total of Russian military strength
in sight approximately twelve mil
To Enter Balkans.
Like England, France and Italy,
Russia is preparing to fight in the
Balkans. This campaign, which is
already under way, is under the lead
ership of General Dimitrieff, ex-com
mander of'the Ninth Bulgarian army
who renounced Czar Ferdinand and
Bulgaria and sent back the military
decorations tendered him by his for
mer sovereign. Dimitrieff's first ob
jective is Bulgaria, anticipation of
which early in December sent Aus
tro-German and Bulgarian regiments
hastily to Rustchuk, the nearest Bui
garian city to the Russian border.
It was Russia that delivered Bui
garia from the Turkish yoke. When
faced by "the Russians as a foe, led
by a former popular general of the
Bulgarian army, wholesale deser
tions from the Bulgar forces are con
sidered a potent possibility.
Russian forces, too, have been sent
in ample numbers to the Caucasus in
order, if necessary, to lend aid to the
British in the event the Suez canal
should be seriously threatened by the
reinforced German-led Turks.
Though Russia has lost an esti
mated million and a half prisoners
to Germany and Austria, nearly a
million men of the double enemy
have been captured and sent to Si
beria where they are in no danger
of liberation, as are the Russian pris
oners in Germany and Austria. The
Austro-German losses during the last
three months, on the Russian front,
have been enormous. Russia's own
losses have not been light, but they
undoubtedly are far under those of
the enemy, most of whose fighting
has been offensive. The activities
of General Ivanoff in eastern Galicia
during September, October and No
vember are credited with putting
200,000 of the enemy out of the
Optimism has now taken the place
of the pessimism that prevailed in
Russia during the dark days of the
summer. The man on the street in
Petrograd knows as well as the high
est official that Russia plans an of
fensive against Germany and Aus
tria in the spring of 1916 the like
of which the world has never experi
enced. Perhaps it will come sooner.
Whether the expenditure of vast
quantities of ammunition on the
front, starting in November and con
tinuing through December, is pre
paration for an advance earlier than
March, or just a measure to keep the
Germans from digging in and pro
tecting themselves against the in
tense cold of a Russian winter is not
Russia generally is watchfully
waiting, but it takes no clairvoyant
to forecast that the animal that con
fronts the Germans before many
weeks will not be the same sore
nosed beast of the summer and aut
umn of 1915..
