NO ENTANGLING ALLIANCES.
Goorjji) Washington nuvor gave wiser and sound
er advice to our forefathers at the beginning of
pur career as a nation when lie counselled them to
.keep clear of entangling alliances with foreign
nations. Jits motto was, "Friendship toward all
nations, entangling alliances with none." This
counsel has been faithfully adhered to by our gov
ernment in its policy toward other nations and has
'saved us from many a complication and trouble,
and today we are at peace with all the world, and,
as President Taj lor said in his iirst message !
Congress, "We are at peace with all the world and
the rest of mankind." Happy is our condition now,
compared with the nations of lOurope. There a
general war, dreadful and enormous in its propor
tions, convulses nearly the whole of Europe- Mil
lions of men are engaged in slaughtering each
other. This condition has been brought about
mainly by the alliances of nations with each other
the triple alliance arrayed against the triple en
tente. Germany, Austria and Italy against France
England and Jiussia. If these alliances had not
existed the war might and very likely would have
i restricted to Austria and Servia. But Austria
made war on Servia. Russia as an enemy of Aus
tria and a friend and ally of Servia took up her
cause- Germany by her alliance with Austria was
bound to help Austra. France by her alliance was
hound to help Austria. France by her alliance was
both Kussia and France and her guarantee of neu
trality to Belgium was bound to take a part in the
And so all Europe is aflame with war. Happy
are we as a nation with no entangling alliances to
forces us into war Oxford (0.) Herald.
THE SUGAR HABIT.
The high price of sugar can be happily utilized
by keeping it out of your coffee. There is where
most of it goes. That is what makes the relineries
boost it to 10 cents. Now is the time for a new dec
laration of independence, committing oneself to a
sugarless life so far as coffee is concerned. Jt is
easily done. All one has to do is to swear oil' for a
week and the reformation is reached.
And then it is on insult to coffee to put sugar in
it. Jt is a perfect joy in its own right. Jt has a
flavor of its own; a tropical gentility that touches
the soul Avith a loving kindness. No true friend of
- coffee puts sugar in it. The blue skies have sweet
ened it, with dewy dawns and rosy sunsets, and if
'" one has any taste he will taste them. And then,
jf one would keep his conscience clear be should
drink his coffee clear.
Besides, there is a host of distempers these days
that keep along with sugar. There is diabetes,
' Bright 's, stomachitis of divers sort and nerve in
dolences of many forms and degrees, all of which
one may escape if he asserts his manhood and wom
anhood and refuses absolutely to pay 10 cents a
pound for sugar. Try it; make a virtue of that ex
tortion. Ohio Slate Journal.
'BEAR YE WITH ONE ANOTHER."
'Love thy neighbor as thyself" is good test for
your neighbor's religion. Jf your neighbor snubs
you over some fancied wrong it's an indication
iijat his or her religions is at low ebb. Exchange.
Huring these troublous times it is well for all to
heed the little sermon quoted above.
THE SHOOTPfG OF DOVES.
We are. increasingly impressed with the folly of
regarding dovca as gamo birds and permitting
them to be shot by the thousand.
There is nothing about the turtle dove that sug
gests the gamo bird. It is one of the most beautiful
of birds. It is very gentle and trustful, and under
ordinary conditions" can be easily approached. Jts
call is oilo of the most musical and sadly sweet
sounds of nature.
Tim dove is in no sense destructive. On the con
trary it renders to a lav,gc degree those services of
insect destruction that make birds so valuable a
feature in the economy of nature
It would be pleasing news if the legislature .if
Ohio would promptly remove the dove from the
,list of birds that may lawfully be shot. Many kinds
of birds are now protected that would be vastly
To make a wild, hunted thing of the bird that is
peculiarly the symbol of purity and trust f ulucm
seems to us to be good neither for sentiment nor
Even the hunter who shoots a turtle dove feels,
we believe, a litle twinge of conscience that is ah
sent when he slays a true game bird that is better
fitted to care for itself and is lacking in those at-
butes that make the killing of doves appear s
repugnant. ITamilton Republican.
FIGHTING SUGAR QOUTATIONS.
There is a movement just now among consumers
generally to beat those responsible in the boost of
prices on sugar. This has many angles. WTth prices
prohibitive, the house wife comes to the front with
the statement that although the canning season is
here, fruit may be partially prepared and canned
to be supplied with sugar when sugar prices are a I
reasonable figures. There is again relief in the ap
plication of honey and other saccharine ingredients.
The greatest wail though comes from the merchant
who now realizes that the buying public has turned
away and that he himself is curtailed in purchase
of small consignments, which last only a few hours.
Again, the cry goes up that those who handle the
sugar supply havj escheated the government, defied
all atempts at regulation, extorted from the public
at will. So insistent has become this demand that
there is but one course for the holders to pursue
that of bringing the quotations back to a reasonable
profit. Georgetown. (0.) News-Democrat-
MUST TAKE AN ACTIVE INTEREST.
If the business men of the North are unwilling
that their business shall be conducted under gov
ernment inquisition and imposition and subjected
to the revengeful attacks of a cabinet and Congress
made up of Southern Free-Trade lawyers, with no
business experience whatever, they must take
a very active interest in the aprroaclilng emigres
sional election and do their share toward return
ing a Republican majority. Rochester (N. Y.-Times.
