between Russin and Ja pm the fast becoming things of the past but some interest will be felt in the explanation of Gen Kuropatkin just published of the cause of the Russian downfall This officer will indeed have to wait for the judgment of hisstory for a correct analysis of own conduct At present mili tary writers are divided both as to his military skill and his vigor upon the battlefield It is ad mitted however that in some particulars he handled the Thus sian troops with more than ordi ofnthe Russians during the war was to succor Port Arthur before it fell and not only was Gen Kuro patkin defeated in this but the army under his command after overthrow at Mukden narrowly escaped capture and was pushed steadily back into Manchuria- It is a mistake however to be lieve that the war was an un broken succession of Russian re verses The engagement at Laio Yang was very nearly a drawn battle and the Russian comman xlerinchief showed uncommon n skill in successfully withdrawing his forces after that battle The fight at Shake river ended in the Japanese being driven back a distance of twenty miles ando one or two occasions during tha engagement the destinies of th war hung in the balance A Mukden the Russian army was disastrously defeated and the Russian chances of winning the war were ended Even after that defeat however Gen ropatkin saved his army an turned it over to his successor who did no fighting at all in fair ly good condition During the last week Gen Ku ropafckin has published a brief account of the whole war and i this article he severely the Russian army both as it w managed at St Petersburg who- hs tells us relative to corruption in the department bureaucraticr incompetency and demoralized transportation systems are no new His remarks upon the army at the front are howeve new and interesting The general impression ha prevailed in this country correct or not that the chie trouble with the Russian army was the demoralization of th common soldiers We have bee told that the private soldiers ha na sympathy with the war that they did not care who won an that they went into every battl halfheartedlyGen combats this theory with vigor He says that the private soldiers showed mor than the usual Russian courage and tenacity The trouble he says was distinctly with the ficers and that trouble he Plac mainly upon the system of a pointing and promoting officers for favoritism and not for merit It seems a strange thing for soldier of the old world to argue for promotion from the ranks but this is in fact Gen Kuro patkins argument At in Russia commissions in th army are held exclusively by the aristocracy and not matter ho brilliant the services of a private soldier he cannot hope for commission Nor is this all Th under grades in the commission ofsmallinfluence armyThese4 but spend their lives holding po t Majorheld by m frequently with iej nceapdusiudlytmfit Asa result the Russian soldiers were znjitrtbly led always realized that manY of their officers did tcnot know what they were doing Cfie lYi1 r r xn and the armysuffered in copse Thee late commanderinchief ends with a recommendation that the merit system be made univer sal in the army and that the road to commissioned rank be open to any man who has the ability to discharge the duties without regard to his social position Perhaps after all the American- si the best of any In times of peace our army is officered except for a very few from civil life entirely by West Points ers These young men are chosen from every section of the country are required to pass rigid entrance examinations and se cure their appointments largely for merit Thus the army is con stantly trained by educated officers At the time of a great war however such as the contest between the States the bars are let down Any private soldier can aspire to the highest rank Hundreds and thousands of the officers who did the best work on both sides in that contest en listed as private soldiers and se cured commissions by merit on the field This is naturally much easier in tilDe of war In times of peace ambitious and intelligent men are slow to enlist in the ranks but during the excitement of war the ranks are frequently filled with officerts interestt tocracy will be guided by the re commendations of the defeated Commanderinchief and establish a new system ofappointing army thde ville

all the kind care and thoughtful attention that Uncle Sam bestows upon his cities of the dead says the Bristol Courier President Johnson died in 1875 and all the years since his remains have on a high hill in an old neglected field overlooking the town of Greenville A handsome monument upon the top of the shaft of which is mounted an eagle with outstretched wings I marks the resting place of this man of inherent greatness His rise from the humblest walks of life to the presidency of the United States in spite of the fact that he could not read until after he had grown to manhood breeds a thought that is full of rich inspiration emphasizing the possibilities that lie out before all men of mind and heart will and determination As a man Andrew Johnson was a tailor but it was not beneath his dignity to do any hon orable work for a living He used to walk from Greenville to Tusculum college a distance of four miles to join the boys of the literary societies in debate In his tailor shop he studied Latin and any phrase he could not master lie was accustomed- to mark and hold in order to receive the assistance of Dr Alex ander Doakwho was in those days teacher of Latin in Tuscu lum college and whose route to Greenville on Saturdays was by way of Johnsons tailor shop Andrew Johnson saw the time in his life that he hauled wood for a living Looking upon his picture one day back in the year 1883 Squire Sevier Mc Gaughey who was at that time county surveyor of Greene county as he pointed the long slender index finger of his trembling right hand at the picture remarked calmly that man has hauled wood for me Nothing he might have said could have proved more inspir ing The students present at once caught the inspiration of the remark for it meant that even the humblest individual has stretching out before him infinite possibilities Andrew Johnson with his great intellect passed step by step from the humble position of woodhauler up to that of president and had been dead eight years and still the man for whom he hauledwood when a young man was yet alive to testify of the potential truth of his remarkable rise to the highest honor within the gift of the people of a great na tion Indeed it does seem mete that the nation capable of producing such men should promptly and gladly take the proper steps to do honor to their memory RoNGdCapt William Ellinger the noted oyster

Prof D W May director of the Porto Rico Experimemt Station I find this prevailing in the West Indies and doubtless a traveler in the Sout American countries finds there the knowledge of the excellence of Kentucky horses and cattle Trade in live stock in Spanish speaking countries is increasing and it is one that Kentucky breeders should look into At the present time the Argentine is the greatest buyer of imported purebred live stock in the world Tle greater art of this business goes to England and it behooves the American breeders to win more ofit Mexico is buyin r considerable live stock and

Francis r co By eartH giiake and fire last V week is the most appauling ca q lamity any part of our great country has ever experienced No pen can picture its horrow i no outside person can measure tke length and breadth of its suf i fering A mere outline and the ittiaginationtof those whose sym jMCthies go out to the unfortunate must picture the scene of death destruction and woe that swept like a tidal wave over one of our most beautiful happy and pros perous cities San Francisco was i iiot the only sufferer from that wrett catastrophe for many smaller cities towns and country homes were wrecked by the swaying of the earth or destroy ed by fire From what we can learn fully one half of the Golden Gate City was destroyedmore than 1000 lives lost thousands left without any means of sus tenance and over 200000000 of property destroyed In other smaller cities the loss was pro portionately heavy though the loss of life was not so sweeping The Chicago fire of 1871 held the record of financial loss up to the destruction of San Francisco but now its fearful figures are far be lund the ruins of our western CitY both in property value and the loss of life In the entire history of our country no disaster thas ever occurred that brought somuch distress and no country in the known world has ever responded more readily or gener ously From the frozen coasts jbf main to the peaceful Pacific from the Canadian borders to the land of perpetual flowers every part of our great country re sponded and are responding like the good Samaritan with money food clothing tents etc To re lieve the distress to aid the help less and to restore order and prosperity is so thoroughly American so intensely Christian that no equal in all the world has ever been known The cry of distress is answered by relief 1tb destruction of business is en r couraged by lending a helping hand but the loss of lifeonly can be metwith the sympathetic tear San Francisco was a city of near 1yonehal million of people coy cring an area of 22 miles Jong by 6 wide prosperous and active in I business one week ago nowl one Klf of it is in ashes her people homeless and in distress but the response of our
