There arc few States in tho union
where cattle raising eau be belier con
ducted than in ibis Stale. Some re
vived interest in that industry bas
been shown in recent years, but when
ever the price of Western beef is rais
ed we have to produce thc price or do
without. If we have to dance when
the trust fiddles it seen;.- really to be
our own fault.
There is considerable practical re
ligion in the following from thc Meth
odist Advocate: ".Just at this time
the country needs a religion which
will make a man pay his debts.
Shouting don't settle old accounts
with God or man. We bounce right
into a fellow and put him out of
the Church if he goes to a ball or
theatre, but never ? word to a pious
scamp who never pays his debts
People who do not pay their debts
are doing the Church moie harm than
either dancers or drunkards for there
are more of them rn the Church."
Postmaster General Cortelyou has
notified the postmaster at Louisville
that ho must either resign as a mem
ber of the Kepublican committee or
give up his public office. This order
will not bc palatable for thc practical
politicians of Kentucky or any other
State, but it will be approved by tho
people generally. Of course, having
issued such an order, Mr. Cortelyou
could not with any degree of self-re
spect presume to remain cither actual
ly or nominally as chairman of the
Republican National committee. For
if he set such an ezamplo it would be
difficult for anyone to understand why
h ; should issue suoh an order as that
to the postmaster at Louisville.
j Mr. Carnegie's gift of $10,000,000
' for a fund to provide for aged and in
j captcitated tcaoherB in Universities,
I colleges and technioal schools of thc
' United States, Canada and Newfound
land will be certain to receive general
! commendation. It will protide a prac
tical aid to tho cause of higher edu
' oation of large importance. As a rule
the men who devote their lives to
teaching in those institutions aro not
in receipt of an income which permits
them to make any proper provision
for the time when they may bc con.
pelled to give up their work. Their
salaries on the average are nothing
like what their ability should :om
mand, and they arc compelled by thc
nature of their associations to spend a
conti lerable portion of them for othir
things than the mere necessaries of
life. Undoubtedly the work of many
professors is hampered by the neces
sity they are under to lay aside part
of their scanty means for the time
when they may be disabled. Many
arc not even able to save anything for
this purpose, and the fact is a constant
oare, which necessarily militates
against the effectiveness of their
work. Il is easy to sec what a boon
Mr. Carnegie's latest gift will be to
both these classes, and how greatly thc
ciuse of higher education will be
benefited by it. This action of Mr.
Carnegie's with reference to the teach
ers in the high institutions of learn
ing ought to arouse public attention to
the necessity for providing similarly
for the aged and disabled teachers in
o tr public schools.

A Short \ ?sit to Spartanburg.
It wa? our good fortune to spend a
day or two last week in Spartan bu rg,
where, aa an officer ot tho State Press
Association, wo had a conference with
Mr. Sbeftall, the preaident of the coin
puny that recently purchased tho
White stone I.?thia Springs, which are
situated nine miles south of the city of
Spartanburg. Tho I'ress Association

Spartan burg, li ho Anderson, con
tinues to exoand itself, but on this oc
casion she found it ul mont, impossible
to furnish accommodations for her
thousands of visitors. Nearly every
homo was entertaining friends and
relatives from a distance and tho ho

to their utmost capacity, the parlors
and halls of each being lilied with cots
and mattresses on the door. Wo regis

Latest War ?News.
There are indications thnt French
hospitality will not be taxed much
longer by the Russian warships which
have been hovering about tho coast of
ludo-China for nearly a mouth. Ofli
cial advices have reached St. Peters
burg which are believed to indicate
thnt tho division under Vice Admiral
Nebogatoff has effected a junction with
the more powerful squadron command
ed by N ico Admiral Rojestvensky and
at the Russian capital it is expected
that the combined squadrons will lose
no time in steaming northward to en
counter the Japanese. Confirmation
of St. Petersburg expectations is af
forded by un official dispatch to tho
French naval oilice announcing that
tho Russian squadron baa left Konghai
buy, its destination being unknown.
The bay named is probably what is
shown on some maps ns Kuiuhhoaor
Nhatrang, which is a few miles south
of lloukohe buy, whore tho Russian
ships were recently reported to ho.
Simultaneously Japanese warships are
reported to be concentrating in tho
straits of Korea the scouting line ho
ing much extended.
There has been increasing feeling
in Japanese official quarters regarding
the way in which France lins construed
neutrality, nod tirent Britain's sym
pathy for her ally has been evidenced

and the French ambassador in London

?51 Petersburg, May 0.-According to
dispatches to the admiralty brought to
Saigon by the hospital ebip Kostroma,
the.-'unction of Vice Admirals Kojest
vensky and Nebogatoff ia by this time
an accomplished fact. The admiralty
professe? ignorauce of tin* present loca
tion ot tho united squadrons; but in
view of tlie loni* und uninterrupted
voyage ol Nebo/- ilolt's division it ia
believed ii i H ships will spend some
time in sheltered waters of the Chinese
sea near tho coast but outside the
three mile limit in order to complete
final recoaling and other preparations
before setting out on tho last and cru
cial stage ot* tile voyage.
London, May H.- Verbal communi
cations quite recently paused between
the British and French loreign offices
concerning the alleged toleration by
Frunce ot breaches ot neutrality on
tho part of the Kassian war ships in
the far east. This was practically ad
mitted tn the Associated Press at the
foreign otlice today but the officials de*
. lined to enter into details on th? sub
ject. In the absence ot official and
definite information, it is said that thc
verbal c uiimutiications were not un
natural in view ot thu newspaper pub
lications. From another source tho
Associated Press learned that Foreign
Secretary Lansdowne communicated
with the French ambassador in Lon
don and to tiie French foreign ellice
through the British ambassador at
Pal is within a few days.
