WAR IN THE FAR EAST
JAPAN HAS BROKEN OFF NEGOTIATIONS
She Will Probably Not Declare War, Leav
ing Russia to Take Such Action
as She May See Fit.
Washington, February 7.-War
between Russia and Japan is mo
mentarily expected in administra
tion and diplomatic circles.
NEGTIATIONS BROKEN OFF.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 7.-It is of
ficially announced that Count Lams
dorff. the Russian foreign minister,
has informed Russian representa
tives abroad that Japan has decided
to break off negotiotions witb Rus
sia and to withdraw her minister
and the entire legation staff from
St. Petersburg, and that upon the
receipt of a note to.this effect from
the Japanese minister, Russia pas
ordered her minister, Baron de
Rosen, and the legation staff to
IN THE JAPANESE CAPITAL.
Tokio, Feb. 7.-The severance of
diplomatic relations between Rus
sia and Japan appears to be only a
step towards war, although when
the ministers of Russia and Japan
wit'.raw from their respective posts
quick and decisive action is expected
JAPANESE ACTION STARTLING.
St. Petersburg. Feb. 7.-Al
though the fear was general here
yesterday that the presentation of
the Russian note to Japan might be
followed by an act on the part of
the Japanese government which
would plunge the two countries into
war, the startling action of Japan
in severing diplomatic relations with
Russia before the actual delivery of
the Russian note, came like a bolt
from a clear sky.
Town Given Push Forward in Onward
March This February-Pay Begin
Several days ago Mr. B. E.
Julien, postmaster at Helena, re
ceived word from the first assistant
postmaster general that the Helena
postoffice had been designated as a
money order office. Mr. Julien
promptly secured his thousand-dol
lar bond and forwarded it to Wash
It is not stated when the order
will be effective; the presumption
is that it will be not later than April
I, possibly earlier.
This is at once a recognition of
the efficiency of Postmaster Julien
and the importance of the town in
the postoffice circle.
Well. Helena is big enough to be
recognized at headquarters. She
furnishes a member of the legisla
ture that is hard to beat and a col
lege professor who is second to none,
to say nothing of two of the best
section masters that ever picked
flaws out of a railroad bed; is the
home of a county treasurer that is
good for re-election and gives New
berry the finest of photographers.
This is not all, but it shows.
NABBED INI NEWBERR~Y.,
They Can't Come Here and Dodge Long.
The short of It IsmTey Catch the
Grip From Our Police.
Policeman Koon got on the trail
of a young negro the other day and
never lost scent of it until he gripped
him and landed his freight.
Tom Higgins, formerly of New
berry but latterly of Hendersonville,
got into trouble in that mou,tain
resort last August and was serving
a year and a half on the chain gang,
when he knocked the guard down
and made good his escape. He
wended his way back to Newberry
and has been on the dodge here for

the ears of Policeman Koon, who
is making a fine record on the

about two and a half or three miles
from town. They were accompa
nied by Mr. T. 0. Stewart, Jr., who
went for the fun of it, because he
likes to be along on such occasions.
Tom was brought to town and
given temporary board and lodging
as provided by law and held for the
North Carolina authorities. Yes

Forgot Where He Was.
A country negro got what he de
served but was not looking for Sat
urday afternoon. He was before
Magistrate Chappell for violation
of contract. The magistrate kindly
told the negro he could return to
his work and be ready when called
for. Instead of being thankful for
the consideration of the officer, he
remarked that it was well that it
was so because the magistrate
couldn't send men enough to arrest
him. That official promptly grabbed
the insolent negro and in the scuffle
Constable Ben Havird quickly
dealt him a blow on the head with
a pair of hand-cuffs, but in place of
breaking his head the lick broke
the little implements of captivity.
The magistrate and his deputy will
treat criminals all right, but they
must not monkey with them.
The negro was landed in jail.
New Idea Woman's Magazine
Of especial interest to the readers
of this progressive periodical will
prove the first of a series of "Brief
Business Talks for Women," by
Katherine Louise Smith, in the
March number. Her hints to her
fellow-women for a better know
ledge in the care of money will
prove of exceeding value to those
who heed them. "The Vicereine
of India," as presented by Waldon
Fawcett, deal with the remarkable
success of that beautiful American
woman, Lady Curzon. Articles
appropriate to Spring in the house
and garden are "Flowering Plants
for the Wind.2w-garden,'' by Eben
E. Rexford; "Raising Mushrooms

and "Gardening Under Muslin," by
George Ethelbert Walsh.
