Old Inn yesterday returning home from a trip to Russellville where he attended a meeting of the commission to adjust coal and tobacco rates The tobacco men complained that the railroads were charging them too high freight rates on their tobacco and lodged a complaint with us After the commission was in session some of them appeared before it and asked t withdraw the complaint stating that they had reached an agreement with the railroads We asked what that agree ment was but they declined to tellus We told them the complaint once filed was the propertyof the commission and could not be withdrawn However we consented to take the matter under advisement and will make our decision known in a few days I understand the railroads agreed to make a reduction of six cents a hundred in rates and if that is the case it will apply to all of- entucky and not to the Russellville district alone Kit Simpson Dead Kentucky Standard Christopher Simpson died last Thurs day of infirmities incident to old

County Attorney Mayes and County Treasurer r Noe Do Good Work for the TaxpayersA Saving of Over 5000 r FEWWOODS A ABOUT FISCAL AFFAIRS IN WASHINGTON COUNTY At the iniApril the county tax rate was reduced 30 centswhich ofIa promise made by our county officials- s ven yearS ago and this news to gether with an announcement madeat that time that Washington county was out of debt was received with great enthusiasm by the taxpayers but the full benefit of this great reduc tion in taxes was about to be lost because of the action of the State Board of Equalization which gave us a raise of 20 per cent on our valua tions and the taxpayers of the county were watching with a deep interest the outcome of the final action of the State Board and the receipt pf a telegram on June 30 from Frankfort from Hon W D Claybrooke County Attorney TS Mayes and County Treasurer Robert Noe announcing that they had won the fight was the occasion for general rejoicing among all of those who heard it The County Judge certainly made no mistake in selecting Messrs Clay brooke Mayes and Noe to represent the county before the State Board for it is now seen that no better work could possibly have been done than that done by these gentlemen and they areI entitled to every word of praise that is now being uttered in their behalf and in fact too much can not be said in approving of their splendid and masterful effort vas crowned with such signal whichr rooke Mayes and Noe had prepared themselves for the fight and presented the case of the Washing ton county taxpayers from a business standpoint All their arguments were s attentively listened to by the State Board which is composed of one member from each appellate district and when the case was finally submitted to them for action they were only a few minutes in reaching their decision The people of the county should not only feel proud of the success of their representatives before the State Board but they have every reason to congratu late themselves upon the unprecedented record made by their county officials during the past seven years They have biiilt more bridges than ever before during the same period and have kept the tax rate the same as it was when they cameinto office They have cancelled every dollar of the indebtedness of the county and were paid the high compliment by a Federal Government official that Washington is one of the best financed and best managed counties in the State Though there are a few grumblers Washington county officials wiIItakeI no backward steps but with the high idea that they have of county government illpress forward and keep the county in the position she now occupies- as a model county whose affairs are honestly and economically administered by faithfu public officials Messrs Claybrooke Mayes and Noe say that the State Board is of fairminded men and composedI nature of their questions they had a very clear and comprehen sive idea of the work and our repre sentatives feel under especial obliga tions to the Board for allowing them a portion of the time allotted to Harrison county whose delegation didnot appear The reduction of 30 cents in tax rate means a reduction of 1050000 in taxes and the fact that our represent atives succeeded in getting off the 20 per cent raise means an additinal sav ing of more than 5000 to the taxpay ers of Washington county This means much and it is no wonder that there is such general rejoicing among all those who have heard the good news LI Niiii1 3r i Pestulancy and Peevishness are Unknown In the II VIMALT I HOME It recu crates

fought in the bar ricaded streets of Lodz The danger of war between Norway and Sweden is by no means over War between Ger many and France is hanging over our heads like the sword of Damocles Austria and Hungary are in a state of the greatest turmoil and that actual civil war has not broken out is due only to the love and respect ot everybody for the old Emperor Francis Joseph What will happen when he dies is im possible to foretell but that his suc cessor will not be the ruler of both countries is a foregone conclusion In Italy the people are being driven to despair by the increasing taxes and the strength of the country is being sapped by the continuous emigration In the Balkans there is the usual confusion the people of the various Christian states killing each other and the Turks massacreing them all Behind the walls of his Konak in Belgrade King Peter lives in steady fear of his life a fear which has almost driven him insane In Germany the Socialist criticism of the Kaiser is sharper than ever and that in spite of the great risk incurred in writing anything which displeases the Emperor What the Socialists especially object to is the Kaisers growing extravagance He owns eightythree landed estates all of them models in their line and many of them very profitable although the men working on the imperial estates are paid higher wages than anywhere else The Kaiser is allowed an annual income of 4000000 but is always in financial straits and the rumors in the English press that he had borrowed large amounts from Berlin bankers were un doubtedly true In Spain King

WilliamL Metcalf In Commoner An aged man lay dying one evening in a western hotel In the office on the floor below a number of friends had congregated to await the end Aside front those friends and the members of it1wasgreat building a life was going out Jn the parlor on the same floor on which the dying mans room was located assembled a little party all ignorant of rifewasked to sing Soon the men waiting in the office below and the griefstricken ones gathered at the bedside of the dying father and husband were listen inf to one of the sweetest voices ever heard singing one of the sweetest songs ever sung The watchers heardiWe are going down the valley one by one Withour faces toward the setting of the sun Down the valley where the m01Wlfuljcypress grows t Where the stream of death in silence onward flowss Instantly every man in the office be low removed hfs hat and one of the watchers at the bedside opened the door a bit wider as the sweet singer five the refrain We are going down the valley going valleyGoing of the sun We goingdownGoing down the valley one by one It was plain to the persons gathered at that bedside that the ding man heard and understood the singer and the song Plainly he was straining his ears to catch the music and the words and plainly he succeeded because a senile lighted up his face upon which the death damp had already gathered as the girl sang We are goingdown the valley one by one- Human comrades there will you and I have none But Christ a fall tender hand will guide us lest we 1aUAs the dying man the watchers at the bedside their voices tremblingjlwith emotion sang again the last verse As they concluded But a tender hand will guide us let we fall Christ is going down the valley with us allthewatcht ers knew that that particular voyage was at an endandin their heart ofi hearts felt that their friend had not neenunattended in his pilgrimage It has been written that men fear death as children fear to go in the dark j and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales 50 is the other t But children may be trained to abandon their fears of the night which is just as much a part of natural law as the day even as death is as much a part of divine law as birth Andmen who are only boys grown tall for hearts dont change much after all thatlproperlyof intelligent men Of course it is easier to make such suggestions than to act on them but is it unreasonable to believe that the pres entday dread of death could be measurably redyced if men were educated by othersand by themselvesto regard it as passing through the very thin shadow separating the living from the dead Some will say that the way to cure these fears is pointed out in the faith of the mothers We know that men have been greatly strengthened by that faith when going down the valley but we know too that many men whose opinions did notlie exactly along the lines of the orthodox religion another d i men who had no fixed religious belief have met death withoutI tremor We know also even among men who are firm believers mIdi among men who have lived correct lives the fear of death and not alone the natural reluctance to ter minate lifeexists in pronounced form Even the faith that is bred in the bon of the member of the orthodox house hold has not served in all cases not as- a ruleto cure men of the fear of the summons from over there Because this is so men should teach one another to look upon death not as an unnatural thing but as mere fulfillment of Gods law forHwe are going down the valley one by one- Death is no more mysterious than birth and there need be no more of the elements of tragedy in the one than in the other Every man who dreaos not death and meets it calmly sets an ex ample to his living fellows and the in stancesthey are many where men have without fear Or trembling closed their eyes for all time are worthy o being recalled occasionally It would be well if the popular conception of death could be somewhat revised through frequent recitals of instances where deathbed scenes have proved an inspiration to the living witnesses Colonel Sol G Kitchen of Missouri l was famous as a brave officer the1 Confederate army A few days his death he said to his wife beforeI as the doctor tells you I am want Lu his daughter to go to the piano and play Jesus Lover of My Soul When the doctor announced that death was rapidly approaching the daughter took her seat at the in strument and with tears streaming down her cheeks played that fine old airJas it was never played before The dying man heard the music and recognized the sign With a smile on his face and faintly repeating the words Safe into the haven guide 0 receive my soul at lastthe 4fine old soldier passed down the valley All the world is familiar with the scenes at the death bed of William Me Kinley We remember that twice after it was known that1the President was dying he recovered consciousness and on each occasion summoned his wife to the bedside se in of his to comfort the distressedwbman painI dently realizing that the end was consciousInessgoodbye It is Gods way His will theIw was him he realized that he was going down the valley he chanted the words of that beautiful hymn Nearer My God to TheeNearer to Thee The people of Nebraska are familiar with the scenes occurring at the deathbed of John S Robinson at one time a member of congress The facts as hereinafter stated are well authent Gated and it is safe to say that on more inspiring scenes were ever enacted in the very presence of the reaper For perhaps twelve grimI fore his death Mr Robinson was fectly conscious of all that was going i on about him The same cheerfulness that during the days of his strong manhood endeared him to his friends char acterized his moments When aften aconsultation of physicians it was announced that there was on longer any hope that fine philosophy with which he had been wont to cheer up his fellow democrats after a political defeat was brought into play and he said We have lost the battle but we at least have the consolation of knowing that we made a good fight Perhaps an hour foredeathcame the nurSe ascending the stairway just outside the sick chamber stumbledand n keeping with an old superstition made an ejaculation Vhen the nurse entered the room MK Robinson said I see you are superstitious How do you know that asked the nurse You stubbed your toe onahe stair way land I heard what you said re plied the dying man IITwenty minutes beforn this died he turned to a friend at the bedside and directing his attention to aI cigar tub on the dresser said Give me that cigar I am going to have an other ood smoke anyway His friend replied John youd better have a fresh jcigar and from his own pocket he tendered the dying jnan an Havana which Mr Robinson proceeded to light and apparently enjoy For himself he seemed tohave not unquesit hiSrwhhis Sweetheart and his helpmeet out his own poor and all but depleted stoc of strength the courage and the vigor twingmoIwto at the bedside he asked Jim have you got your nerve with you Th brother well nigh choking with emo tion replied in the affirmative I a gladof it Hang on to it to the

threshold of eternity JIt is not difficult to discover that this man had sofhe very firm convictions of the great question affecting the future It must be evident to every one that b theIshared his confidences know that he did not believe that there was an extremel theImen who die live again and that somehow and some way the living who have loved and lost their beloved may feet communion by which was smoothed the sorrow of one of whom it was written A guardian angel oer his life presid ing doubling his pleasures and his cares dividing rAndwelJ to the one nearest and dearest to him he turned to his good wife and said The end is drawing near but we must not worry And then with striking emphasis he added Its all right and Ill be standing right there Kate waiting for you on the other shore with outstretched arms Some one has said The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes Perhaps it was merely a coincidence but it is however a fact thatat the very moment whenthe spirit of this brave man took its flight there came a heavy peal of thunder and as the hands were folded on the breast Sena or William V Allen one of the watch ors at the bedside turned to a companion and said It is as though the Jartil ery of heaven were firing a salute in w come to a superbly brave man Thoughwe may call the thunder peal a mere coincident who will say that it was not eminently fitting that the heavens themselve should blaze forth the death of a man capable of so much love courage and i hilosophy fWill we not do w ill to remember that man makes a ceath which nature never made and hat it is impossible that anything o njitural so necessary and so univer sal as death should ever have been des gned by Providence as an evil to manki d Dont you remem er the tory of He and

believe there are people with only one ideaat least if they have more they keepit a profound secret for they never talk but of one subject I saw a schoolboy once that could not read unless it be his own book and the man of one idea can not converse out of his own subject That is not conversation only a sort of recital of the preamble of a hill or collection of grave arguments for a mans being of

There is however in the following ex pression of the editor of the Spring field Ky Sun such a rhapsodical ecStasy that one is almost forced to at tribute j in part to the seductive mint of that grand Commonwealth as well as to the alluring charms of Kentucky womanhood Listen Kentucky women have beers recog prettiestcreaturesof God Twill ever be thus because they love Kentucky and Kentucky wor ships them Did you ever see an angel with her head resting upon a bank of lilies Theres Inspiration in a picture of that sort But lawsy wen comes to real beauty beauty that staggers you beauty that makes your heart gallop up and down your backbone and causes you to go away off somewhere and write poetrya Ken tucky beauty has got the world skinned from jts toe nails to the north pole and the man who says she aint lacks in formation We suppose the author of this knows fully whereof he writes We confess thatwe cannot grasp him fully but we are willing to attribute this failure to our own weakness and not for a moment would we intimate that the figures here are overdrawn Beautiful women affect men differently and it may be that when the editor of The Sun rests his tired eyes on one of Ken tuckys fair visions he feels as though a colt were galloping madly up and down his vertebrae It may be too that when he sees one of these com pi ion pieces of wine and songthis is the trinity in Kentuckyhe does go away off somewhere Nor would we imply for a moment that the outpouring here quoted intimates that he goes off in the upper story Passing by the skinning qualities of the women of Kentucky we take up the following from our Kentucky contemporary writewithunder the great blue dome is there a KEntuckyIing star in the si a low of a summer suiset more inspiring than a thousand songs and as bewitching as a fawnen tangled in the vines of a wilderness of roses Shes our hope our romance our vine and fig treethe light which enables us to see a million miles beyond the north star Really we cannot jest in the light of this It is too sacredly beautiful for any ruthless suggestion Blessed in deed is Kentucky to be the home of such a race of women and blessed are these women to have such a champion We cannot desist however in offering the suggestion to the wife of the editor of The Sun that ifshe is in Reed ota new gingham dress or would like to take a trip to Frankfort to visit her sister she should seize upon this as the psychological moment No min con fronted with such an encomium as this 4ne that he had got out of his own lovelyrask Spoiled Her Beauty

persuaded At the back of his tend there was an uneaSy consciousness that it was not 4a11 a matter of price If it were he would never trust a mans face again But Vent nors well balanced arguments swayed him The course indicated was the only decent one It was humanly impossible for a man to chide his daugh ter and flout her rescuer within an hour of finding them y Lord Ventnor played his cards with a deeper design He bowed to the mi vita61e Iris said she loved his rival Very well To attempt to dissuade f her was to throw her more closely into that rivals arms The right course was to appear resigned saddened com pelled against ails will to reveal the distressing truth Further he counted on Anstruthers quick temper as an active agent Such a man would be the first to rebel against an assumpion- ot pitying tol a anceT He would bring bitter charges of conspiracy of un believable compact Tto secure his ruin All this must recoil on his c vn head when the facts w re laid bare Not even the hero of the island could pre vail against the terrible indictment of the court martial Finally at Singa pore three days distant Colonel Cos tobell and his wife were staying Lord Ventnor alone of those on board knew this Indeed he accompanied Sir Ar thur Deane largely In order to break off a somewhat trying entanglement He smiled complacently as he thought of the effect on Iris of Mrs Costobelis Indignant remonstrances when the bar onet asked that injured lady to tell the girl all that had happened at Hong kong r However Lord Ventnor was most profoundly annoyed and he cursed Anstruther from the depths of his heart But be could see a way out l He came ashore with Iris and her father The captain of the Orient also Joined the party The three m watched Robert and the girl toward them from the group of nI cersAnstruther Is a smart looking tel low commented Captain Fitzroy Who Is he jITruth to tell the gallant commander Orient was secretly amazed by the metamorphosis effected In Roberts Appearance since he scrutinized him through his glasses Poor Sir Arthur said not a word but fcls lordship was quite at ease Fbom his name and from what Deane tells me I believe he is an ex officer of the Indian army J4Ah He has left the service Tes I met him last in Hongkong Then you know him 1 JeQuite well if he is the m nllm agule That is really very nice of Ventnor thought the shipowner The last thing should credit him with would be a forgiving disposition Meanwhile Anstruther was reading Iris a little ectur Sweet one he explained to her do not allude to me by my former rank I urn not entitled 1Itoit Some day please God it will be irestored to me At present I am a iplain civilian and by the way Iris 1 during the next few days say nothing T about our mine notTtJust a

the manner of their speech Nevertheless Ventnor smiled again Even the Dyaks respected Miss Deane he said But Anstruther sorry for the manlI test uneasiness of the shipowner re pressed the retort on his lips and forthwith suggested that they should walk to the north beach in the firstI instance that being the scene of the Wreck j Duringthe next hour he became audi tor rather than arrator It was

silent listener who missed neither I wordnor look felt a deeper chill in his cold heart as he realized that this wo mans love could never be his The knowledge excited his passion the more His hatred of Anstruther now became a mania an insensate resolve to mortally stab this meddler who al ways stood in Ills path Robert hoped that his present ordeal was over It had only begun He was called on to

luncheon when Captain Fitzroy put a filial querk Lean quite uiwlerstand he said to Robert that youHjave au affection for this weird ipiace but I am curious to know why jou lay claim to the Island You can hardly lutetid to return here He pointed to Roberts placard stuck on th crock Anstruther paused before he answered He felt that Lord Ventnors dark eyes were fixed on him Every body was more or less desirous to havq this point cleared up He looked tine questioner squarely in the face In some parts of the world be said lltuere are sunken reefs unknown un charted on which many a vessel has been lost without any contributory fault on the part of her officers Undoubtedly Well Captain Fitzroy when I was stationed with my regiment in Hong kong I encountered such a reef and wrecked my life on it At least that is how it seemed to me then Fortune threw me ashore here after a long and bitter submergence You can hardly blame me if I cling to the tiny speck of land that gave me salvation No admitted the sailor He knew there was something more in the allegory thou the text revealed but it was no business of his IOreoYefcontlnue Robert smilingly hyou see e a partner There cdrtirot be the slightest doubt about the partner was the prompt reply Then every one laughed Iris more than any though Sir Arthur Deaqes gayety was forced and Lord Ventfior could taste the acidity of his own smile Later in the day the first lieutenant told his chief of Anstruthers voluntary statement concerning the court martial Captain Fitzroy was naturally pained by this unpleasant revelation but he took exactly the same view as that ex pressed by the first lieutenant in Rob erts presence Nevertheless he pondered the matter and seized an early opportunitybf mentioning it to Lord Ventnor That dis tinguished nobleman was vastly sur prised to learn how Anstruther had cut the ground from beneath his feet Yes he said in reply to the sailors request for information f know all about it Jt could not well be otherwise seeing that next to Mrs Costobell I was the principal witness against him That must have been awkward for you was the unexpected comment Whyi linked your name with that of the lady In a somewhat utspoken way You astonish me Anstruther cer ainly made some stupid allegations during the trial but I had no Idea he was able to spread tins malicious re portsubsequently 10m not talking of Hongkong my lord hut of Singapore mouths later Captain Fitzroys tone was exceed ing dry Indeed some people might deem it offensive Ills lordship permitted himself the rare luxury of an angry scowl Rumor is a lying jade at the best Tie said curtly You must remember Captain Fitzroy that I have uttered no word of scandal about fllr An struther nand any doubts concerning his conduct can be set at rest by perusing tine records of his case In the adjutant generals office at Hong kongHum said the sailor turning on his heel to enter the chart room The girl and tier father went back to the iglandvlth Robert After taking thougnt the latter decided to ask Mir Jan to reniain in possession until ho returned There was not much risk of another Dyak Invasion The fate of Taung SAHs expedition would not en courage a fresh set of marauders and the Mohammedan would be well nrrned to meet unforeseen contingencies while on his Anstnithers representations the Orient would land an abundance of stores In any event It was better for the native to live In freedom on Rainbow island than to be handed over to the authorities as an escaped convict which must be his Immediate fate no matter what mrignanimous view the government of India might afterward take of his services Mir Joins answer was emphatic He took off his turban and placed It on nstrutbertteet Sahib he saidiiI am your dog If some day I am found wdrtby to be your faithful servant then shall I know that Allah has pardoned my transgressions In spite of himself Sir Arthur Deane could not help liking Anstruther The man was magnetic n hero an ideal gentleman No wonder his daughter was Infatuated with him Yet the fu ture was dirk and storm tossed full of sinister threats and complications Iris did not kpow the wretched circum stances winch had come to pass since they partejd and Which had changed the whole aspect of his life How could he tell her Why should It be his miserable tot to snatch the cup of hap piness from her lips In that moment of silent agony he wished he were dead for death alone could remove the burden laid on him Well surely he might bask in the sunshine of her lauzhter for another dor No need tQ embitter her Joyous heart unTil he was drirxja to it or dire necessity So he resolutely Urushed aside the woebegone phantom of care and en tered Into the abandon of the hour with a zest that delighted her The dear girl imagined that Robert her Robert had made another speedy con nest and Anstruthor himself was 5 v I jjP He looked the questioner squarely in the face much elated by the sudden change In Sir Arthur Deanes demeanor They behaved like school children on a picnic They roared over Iris troubles in the matter of divided skirts too much divided to be at all pleasant The shipowner tasted some of her sago bread and vowed it was excellent They unqarthed two bottles of cham pagne the last of the case and promised each other a hearty toast at din ner Nothing would content Iris but that they should draw a farewell buck etful of water from the well and drench the pitcher plant with a torrential shower Robert carefully secured the pocket books money and other effects found 011 their dead companions The baro net of course knew all the principal officers of the Sirdar He surveyed these mournful relics with sorrowful Interest The Sirdar was the crack ship of my fleet and Captain Ross my most trusted commander he said You may well Imagine Mr Anstruther what acruel blow it was to lose such a vessel with all these people on board and my only daughter among them I wonder now that it did not kill me sIrIof a reef would break her up Ah wellslghec1 the shipowner the few timbers you have shown me here are the remaining assets out of 300000 Was she not Insured Inquired Robert No that is I have recently adopted a scheme of mutual selfInsurance end the loss falls pro rata on my other vessels The baronet glanced covertly at Iris The words conveyed little meaning to her Indeed she broke in with a laugh I din afraid I have heard you say fathers dear that some ships In the fleet paid you best when they ran ashore Yes Iris That often happened in the old days It is different now Moreover I have not told you the extent of my calamities TheSIrdar was lost on March 18 though I did not know it for certain until this m ruing But on March 25 the Bahadur was sunk in the Mersey during a fog and three days later the Jemadar turned turtle on the James and Mary shoal in the Hooghly Happily there were no lives lost in either of these cases Iris was appalled by this list of casualties yet she gave no thought to the serious financial effect of such a string of catastrophes Robert of course ap capedailymark about the Insurance But Sir Arthur Deanes stiff upper lip deceived him He failed to realize that the father was acting a part for his daugh ters sake Oddly enough the baronet did not seek to discuss with them the legal looking document affixed near the cave It claimed all rights In the island In their joint names and this was a topic he wished to avoid For the time therefore the younger man had no op portunlty of taking him into his con fidence and Iris held faithfully to her promise of silence The girls ragged raiment souwester and strung boots were already packed aiay on board She now rescued tine Bible the battered tin cup her revolver and tine ritle which had scared the Dyaks when they nearly caught Anstruther and Mir Jan napping Rob ert also gathered for her an assortment of Dyak huge belts and arms including Tauug S Alls parang and a sumpltau These were her trophies the spoils of the campaign Ills concluding act was to pack two of the empty oil tins with all the valuable lumps of auriferous quartz he could find where he shot the rubbish from the cave beneath the trees On top of these he placed some antimony ore and Mir Jan wondering why the sahib wanted the stuff carried the con signment to the waiting boat Lieutenant Playdon In command of the last party of sailors to quit the island evi dently expected stir Jan to accompany them but Anstruther explained that the man would await his return sometime In JuneQr July TO BE

present county adoption of school books by the terms of the contract expires two years from now and under the law the School Book Company furnishing the books under this contract is required to execute a bond for Ten Thousand Dollars for the faithful performance of the contract In a number of counties in the State suit was instituted against the School Book Company for a breach of contract and in one county it was compelled toI pay 510000 the full amount of its bond The Court of Appeals in passing on this case held that the company must execute a new bond or else forfeit all the contracts it then held in the State The School B90 Company has rc fused to execute new bond therefore all schools must immediately cease to use the books adoptod under the County contract for the law provides that no school shall be taught in and no part of the common school funds sh Ube paid to any district while using the books of any Company that refuses to execute the bond required by law The State Superintendent of Public Instruction has notified this board as well as all other county boards having similar adoptions that the School Book Company has failed and refused to execute the bond required by law and has further notified us that under the law we will be required to use tHe State Adoption from and after July 1 1905 and that no money will be paid to any school district that continues the use of books unauthorized by the State Adop tion The History of Kentucky Longs Language Lessons and Civil Gov ernment of our County Adoption are the same as the State Adoption and will not have to be changed The Spellers also will not have to be changed The books furnished under the State Adoption are about thirty per cent cheaper than those furnished under the County Adoption and will in the end result in a greatsaving to the people yet we had planned to bring about the change gradually so as to distribute the cost but under the decision of the Court and the positive direction of the State Superintendent the change must be made at once Below you will find the cost and exchange price of the books of the State adoption ilV ExchangePrice The Modern Pronouncing Speller J 012

Japan over whiskysoaked Russia says the Toronto Globe It is the greatest temperance lecture ever delivered in the world to nations and to individuals as well What wa g proved on the wreck strewn Straits of Corea had already been proved in the destruction of the Port Arthur squadron in the running fight with the Vladivostok cruisers in the reduction of an almost impregnable fortress and in the land operations in Manchuria It was in each case Japan against Russia but it was more It was temperance against debauchery Japans achievements on landand sea were not directed by men who had spent their days and nights in idleness and dissipation They were the product of lives of strong steadfast sober en deavor the very opposite of what their enemy had been The lesson of the war is npt for Rus
