great Yellow Empire to thwart the fixed Muscovite purpose ot domi nating the entire Continent from the Arctic Zone to the Indian Ocean Separated by the Sea oi Japan from the coast of Korea and Siberia lies the island empire of Japan with a population of 43l68I5 and an area of 147669 square miles With an overcrowded population vast ambitions undoubted military genius and prowess Japan has for some time cast an eager look on Korea as a foothold on the mainland for imperial expan sion to take In ultimately the entire territory now really or nominally sub ject to the Chinese Emperor in one word to consolidate under one Gov ernment the entire Sinaic branch 0- 1the Yellow race from Amoor to the Mekong This purpose in view Ja pan nine yens pgo attacked China forcing that country to abandon all designs on Korea The Japanese victory over China placed the latter at the mercy of the Mikado but the Powers of Europe called a halt Russia Britain Ger many and France each approprieted a Chinese port paving the way for fur ther aggressions on that effete empire Russia determined to take no chances with Japan seized subse quently on Manchuria a vast terri tory north and west of Korea check ing all opportunity for Japanese ad vancement on those sides But that is not all Russia Is resolved to exclude Japan if that be possible from Korea itself This Russian determination is gall and wormwood to Japan whose inter est in Korea is of long duration The trade of the two countries is closely interwoven The people have freely Intermingled in commercial re lations Their language have a com mon root Korea has proved a will Ing recipient of Japanese civilization and a grateful beneficiary of Japanese enterprise Korea is of indescribable strategic importance to Japan several of whose islands are within sight oi the Korean cent Russian interest in Korea arises from the dictates ot its own policy oi absorption land from jealousy of Japan The splendid seaports of Korea are needed to convey the illimitable productiveness of Si beria and the interior geneialy of Asiatic Russia to the Pacific which will one day it is the hope of Muscovite statesmanship give their country control ol the world Russia bases its intervention in Korean affairs on an enormous but vaguely defined timber concession given by Korea seven yeais ago to a Russian company The concision is said to confer unlimited rights to cut timber In the Yalu valley The Yalu Is a navigable river flawing 300 miles southwest to the Bay of Korea where it empties into a broad and spacious estuary The concession was so vaguely worded that while the Russians claim it conveys the whole land in the immediate vicinity of the Yalu from source to mouth and all land in the immediate vicinity of its tributaries the Korean authori ties maintain that the privileges con veyed are restricted to the lower stretches of the main stream While this dispute waxes warm Russia sends nn armed force Into the Korean dlstrlctol Yong Cnon whose capital has one of the most inviting and ca paclous harbors in the peninsula The Russians have begun to acquire land and erect buildings necessary they claim for the successfulexploi tntlon of their timber concession Korea has become in the face ol this illdisguised oppressiveness thor oughly alarmed She defers the ratification of Russian leases of land for wartnoutilng and residences But

BOUNDARY Old Treaty InterpretedNothing- New in it as the Com missioners See it Ye Americans are so sure that the recent Alaskan boundary decision grave us only our just dues that it Is interesting to note the grounds of the almost unanimous Canadian protest In the December issue of The World Today an sole Canadian writer hives what he calls A Canadian View of the Alaskan Award He gives three reasons why the Cana dians are sure they lire right First the fact that the United States declined to submit the question to arbi tration before an impartial tribunal but preferred to submit the original treaty for interpretation to a board representing the two parties to the controversy second the fact that men connected with the administration were selected to represent Amer ca on this board third the fact that when the Americans had won over the Chief Justice of England to their view of the case the two Canadian members still prtested One is sur prised to note that it this writer cor rectly represents the case Canadians do not think Canada is entitled tOflu disputed territory because a reasona ble interpretation of the treaty defin ing the boundary gives it to her but base their protest solely upon the matter in which the United States and Great Britain have proceeded in settling the dispute We do not for an Instance doubt the good faith oi our Canadian neighbors in making their claim to the disputed strip but from our point of view the case look so plain in our favor that we would be interested to hear the Canadian arguments on merits of the question In 1825 a treaty was drawn between Russia and Gr at Britain as the sov e eign powers respectively of Alaska and Canada This treaty defined the boundary between the two dominions in terms which were not at that time considered ambiguous Only one interpretation was placed upon them by both parties and the British and Rus sian maps agreed Later the Utiteqi States bought Alaska and succeded to whatever had been conveyed to Russia by the treaty of 1825 Still the maps were unchanged Russia Great Britain and the United States eel agreed on the location of the boun dary line and upon that bssis the purchase was made But now otter seventyfive years Canada conceives the idea that the terms of the treaty of 1825 might be differently interprot ed to her advantage Just One Moment One Minute Cough Cure gives re

uncertain elements in meteorology Is the height to which the earths atmosphere extends In former days it was taught somewhat dogmatically that a height exceeding fortyfive miles was unthinkable for a gas constituted as the air Is This belief was shaken by calculations respecting the altitude of meteors which became Incandescent by collision with our at mospheric envelope Dud were certainly rendered visible In this way at altitudes of ever seventy miles Professor Newcomb deduced from the meteor shower of Nov IB 1807 thjt the nlr must reach to 100 or 110 miles from the earths surface Dr T J See of Wash ington essayed to determine the problem by watching the disappearance of blue sky after sunset Accepting Lord Kaylelghs theory that the blue color of the sky Is due to reflection of sun light froth minute particles of oxygen and nitrogen In the upper layers of the atmosphere Dr See on a series of evenings traced with tho Iyo the last footsteps of departing tiny by the cvanlKhmont of the final trace of blue in the firmament He then computed from the data of the Nautical Almanac tho position of the sun nt the time and a simple calculation In spherical trigo nometry gave the

Printer In IleliiR Forgotten t lost t5 felling last night said a printer What You do not know anything about jeff Why It is as old as the art of printing Itself and no man knows Just when It did come into favor Far back In the past some fel low was impressed with the possibili ties of the quad as an Instrument for gambling Since that time Jeff has been a feature of all newspaper offices and wherever there is type to set Jeer Is played very much like dice but Is much more Interesting and the chances of winning a good stake at one shot are greaterSeven quads are used In the game Any number of persons can play and each throws the quads In turn just as I we do dice You probably know that on one side of a quad is a little groove which wo call 1 nick The man who turns up the greatest number of nicks in three throws takes the pot while ev ery other man who puts up his money loses Every player puts CO cents Into the pot and as there are six or seven to throw tho stake is well worth win ning When n throw Is made without turning up a single nick thats a mol lie A molllc is a blank and counts for nothing unless one can throw three mollies in succession In that case betakes the pot but it is almost Impossible to do the trick Cocked qunds are also possible as with dice It three players tie their throws they stay In while tho remainder of tho crowd sweeten up the pot It is sel dom that more than five or six points are made although I have Heard of cases where players made as high as twenty points Birmingham AgeHer alt Anticipation There is n story to time effect that a woman

angrHy and viciously forathe wlud that would not come to us on I have often wondered what can have been the origin of whistling for the wind That the custom Is of undoubted practical utility Is the firm belief of many races of seafarers from the English sea captain to the humble Malay kamudl I was on one occasion very roughly spoken to by a captain In the Irish channel for casually whistling In a gale of wind lie thought It a piece of gross carelessness on my part which might lend to serious conse quences Here In Celebes too I was warned to be careful not to laugh whenIthe kamudl screwed his face up an Intensely ludicrous expression of feigned passion and whistled angrily for the wind to come for the Malay seamans belief In the efficacy of this mode of raising the wind Is a serious one

Investigation of Mor mon Church Probable in Senate Washington Dec 29Senator Burrows who Is chairman of the Sen ate Committee on Priviliges and Elec tionns which is conducting the investigation of the charges against Senator Reed Smooth of Utah said today that the committee probably would meet on Saturday January 9 for the continuation of the inquiry While Senator Borrows has received no notification from Senator Smoot he thinks it prabably that the reply of the latter to the charge against him will be ready by the time mentioned Senator Borrows would make no forecast of the proceedings of the committee All depended he said upon the nature of the response Be fore going to Salt Lake City Mr Smooth said that he probably would deny some of the charges and admit others but nothing regarding his course has been heard Since the adjournment of Conongress for the holi rdaysIf Mr Smoots denial is such as to challenge the authenticity of the in formation upon which the accusations are based It is the opinion of some of the members of the committee that the authors of the charge will be giv en an opportunity to prove them and in that event there probably would be quite a general ivtstigatlon into the paesent day practices of the Mor mon Church with reference both to marriage and politics The commit tee has however reached no conclu sion looking to such a course and Chairman Barrows declined to ex press any opinion as to its probabili ty If Senator Smoot should admit the charges as a whole which Is not con sidered probable there would then be nothing left for the committee but to consider the legal aspect of the case and decide whether the facts even If true disqualify a man for a seat in the Senate The present indications are tbat question will be before the committee for sometime FORDSVILLE KY Dec 29Mr Ellis Jones of Mo nett Mo is visiting his parents Miss Mabel Morrison of Owensbo ro is visiting friends here this week Mrs Eslle King of
