A Splendid Newspaper's Most Ex
cellent Opinion On An Important
The Detroit Journal comes to the
aid of Russia to the extent of ex
pressing "distinguished consideration
and best wishes in time of trouble,"
but says the fight with Japan is one
it "can't mix up in any more tangible
way than with our sympathies." This
sympathy is expressed for the reason
that in spite of great faults, it likes
Russia for her own sake and for the
enemies she has made. In giving the
reason for the sympathy expressed.
the Journal prints some interesting
alleged historical facts. It calls at
tention to the naval demonstration
made by Russia during the civil war
"as a warning to European nations
which were inclined to take advantage
of the embarrassments under which
the republic was laboring," and as
serts that the value of the assistance
rendered the United States during the
civil war has often been called into
question. and that "those who have
felt that a particularly heavy weight
of gratitude was due to the country
that was a friend indeed, have
been defied to prodice the scratch of
a pen from contemporaneouiS records
at Washington by which the tremend
ous service thus rendered could be as
tablished as a part of the history of
the civil war period."* This stumbling
block, however, is largely removed by
the assertion of Charles Moore, pri
vate secretary to the late Governor
McMillan, "who, in the course
of a long residence in Washington,
had opportunity to acquire familiar
ity with many events of historical in
terest through contact with persons
who had a participation in them."
The Russian fleet. it is asserted, "was
sent over under sea4ed orders and, its
dispatch not being due to the terms of
any formal treaty, it is possible that
there may be no records at the capi
tal giving the graceful incident the
prominence it deserves." Mr. Moore
even goes so far as to assert on the
authority of a member of the Senate
committee on foreign affairs during
the post-bellum period that the mil
lions later given for Alaska, then con
sidered a particularly worthless re
gion, were really paid to recompense
Russia for the expense incurred in
making the naval demonstration.
This information regarding the pur
chase of Alaska may vot be true, but
it should be, for it is hard to believe
that the United States would have
paid out $7-,2oo,9oo at the time they
did for a lot of Esquimaux and Polar
The Journal goes on to point out
the fact that "a statement often made
is that an intelligent, polished Ameri
can gentleman resembles no one so
much as he does an intelligent, well
educated, polished Russian gentle
man. who hasn't been associated with
the beaurocratic methods of his own
government,' and continues:
"Remembering Russian cordiality
in the past. and viewing with appre
hension the possibilities behind a Jap
anese victory, thousands of Americ
ans of the intelligent, thinking class
sympathize with Russ.ia in the present
fight. And really she seems to need
sympathy. If. as is asserted and
seems to be the case. no nation ever
went to war more thoroughly prepar
ed for all eventualties than Japan. it
seems on the other hand thait none
ever faced the possibilities of the op
ening of hostilities in a more wretch
edly unprepared state than the Rus
sian possessions in the far East."
Althouigh it is now near!y forty
ears since the close of the civil wvar.
the above shows that incidents in con
nection therewith, even on the part
of foreigners, are not soon forgotten.
By the same token as that cited by
Te Journal the South should have
sympathized with Spain in her trouble
in Cuba. at least until the destruction
of the battleship Maine. but such was
by no means the case, and the effort
to enlist sympathy in the North for
Russia will probably fall fiat. for the
main reason that the belief is general
that it is to our commercial interest
for Japan to succeed. The South has
also that interest and the fact that
Russia opposed her in the civil war
and ardently hates her old-time friend,
Great Britain. It will be a rather up
hi'l business to create a 1eelug mn
this country favorahle to~ Russia. The
belici that Japan is right and Russia
is wrong is to' strongly entrenched
to hewin with.
The Farmers Need It.
Farmers enjoying the benefits of
rural mail delivery feel the need of
better means for transportation of
small sums of money. At present the
only plan is through the use of cut
rency or stamps. Small amounts thus
sent are always liable to loss. More
than this, they afford an unusual
temptation for theft. The government
owes it to the farmer to provide more
adequate means. In his recent report
the postmaster general indicates the
great need of some better method.
The post-check system. it is believed.
would answer the purpose advantage
ously. A bil! providing for this was
introduced during the last session, but
time for consideration was too short.
During the present session probably
this matter will again come before
Congress. In this event farmers'
meetings would do well to investigate
the matter and pass tesolutions favor
ing its immediate passage. If such
resolutions were placed in the hands
of your representatives at Washing
ton they would prove a powerful fac
tor in attracting attention to the fact
that farmers want and need better ser
vice in this respect. If farmers want
postal checks or so,nethi;t equally
they should get together and ask for
How To Deal With It.
Norris cor. Pickens Sentinel Journal.
In speaking of the school we w.)l!d
like to commend the way Prof. Dendy
deals with the young men in his
school. He lectures them at length
on duty. and misconduct is punished
by expulsion. A few weeks ago he
expelled a young man for misconduct
and the father became very indignant
and angry with the teacher and sought
every way possible to take revenge
and "scoured" the country over trying
to get a warrant for Prof. Dendy, and
after a miserable failure gave up the
attempt. Still not content with the
shame heaped upon the son. we sup
pose, tries to shield the son and
brings contempt upon himself, and
consulting the trustees he finds they
approve of the way the professor has
dealt out justice. Alas! for fathers
who try to shield their children when
the.fault lies in the children.
We truly believe if young men in
school could but realize that reproach,
disgrace and shame is a reward for
disobedience, misconduct and misbe
havior in school and out of school,
there would be better times for the
teachers and everybody else, and as
a result, better citizens a few years
hence. We wish the school well and
hope that the trustees will make it
attractive for Prof. Dendy another
term. All the good people of .this
place speak likewise of him.
A- Modern Wedding.
The modern bridegroom led the
modern bride to the alter. The mod

with his modern wedding ceremony.
"Will you," he said to the bride
groom. "take this divorced woman

"And will you." said the clergyman
to he woman. "take this man to be
your companion in misery for so long
as you think best?
-I will." said the woman. "if I don't
have to nurse him when he is sick, or
ake breakfast with him."
"Is there any one," said the clergy
man. "who objects?"
"No one." said the spokesman for
the congregation. "We are all very
glad of it. It makes gossip. and the
mere fact that we are here will enable
us to have our names in the paper. Let

"I suffered for some years from my back
