The disease that has done more
than any other to wreck, ruin and
humiliate life, is Contagious Blood Poison. Sorrow, shame and suffering go
hand in hand with this great enemy, and man has always hated and fought
it as he has no other disease. It is the most powerful of all poisons; no mat
ter how pure the blood may be, when its virus enters, the entire circulation
becomes poisoned and its chain of horrible symptoms begin to show. LUsu
ally the frst sign is a small sore or ulcer, not at all alarming in appearance,
but the blood is being saturated with the deadly poison, and soon the mouta
and throat begin to ulcerate, the hair and eyebrows drop out, a red eruption
breaks out on the body, copper-colored splotches and sores make their
appearance and the poison even works down into the bones and attacks
the nerves. Not only is the disease hereditary, being transmitted from
parent to child, in the form of scrofula, weak eyes, soft bones, weakL puny
constitutions, etc., but is also so highly contagious that many a life has
been ruined by a friendly hand shake, or from using the toilet articles of
one infected with the poison. To cure this blighting. deadly curse the
blood must be purified, and nothing will do it so

The New Japanese Programme.

America. the great Western
wor011ld that 1)rtenids it taught

ter than it inew-is now specu
I 1ting as to what Japan will do
with her unprec-edented triumphs
On s and jand.

fully ignorant of the mighty
strength and genius of their
"pupil." could not understand
iow little Japan dared confront
the monster that had so long
bIlusttered over and browbeat
England and her other neighbors.
As Japan stood at the beginning
of 19o4. in the estimation of the
West, she was not a "danger."
hardly to be considered in any
designs' for instance, that in
volved the partitioning of China.
But the Japan of 1905, "the
scourge of God" that flays the
Russians, has become a great
power, with vaster potentialities
and doubtless with far different
purposes. What are they?
Perhaps Japan, with her un
matched genius for secrecy, will
not disclose her purposes. She
may deem it more prudent to al
low them to unfold in action and
events. Such has always been
the Japanese way in peace and
war. Prince Khilkoff, who has
just returned from Manchuria,
said that the Russian army has
never known where the Japa
nese main strength was, or
where. when or how it would
strike. Can we expect, then,
that a policy so successfully pur
i sued in war and peace will now
be abandoned; and the silence of
oriential diplomacy be broken?
Certain of the purposes of
Japan seem. however, appar
ent. She must tirst end the war
by a crushing blow against the
army under Linevitch, 'or drive
it beyond the boundaries of Man
churia or Lake Baikal. She
will, very likely, also, seize ac
tual Russian territory-Sakhalin
and Vladivostok, and part of the
Amur valley, Russia is now try
ing to find consolation in the pre
tense that Manchuria is Chinese
territory, and that she, Russia,
has lost not an inch of soil. No
one believes that the Russians
would ever have abandoned Man
churia of their own volition.
They have been driven from ter
ritory that Russia intended to
hold; but, of course, Japan does
not contend it was Russian soil,
and it cannot figure in the con
ditions of peace in any way ex
cept in a return of it to China.
That Japan may now send a
fleet to European waters is a
probability suggested by The
State some time ago. A few
swift cruisers in the Mediter
raean, Atlantic, North arid Bal
tic seas would be a terrible blow
to Russian commerce, as well as
having a salutary effect upon
Europe. Russia's merchant
marine is considerable enough to
offer a keen temptation. There
are some 818 steamers aggregat
ing 385,000 tons; and 2,200 sail
ing craft, with a total of 283,000
tons. The Japanese could cap
ture many fine prizes, besides
blockading, annoying and humil
iating her enemy. An effective
Japanese blockade in the Baltic
would induce neutral nations to
intervene and end the war.
Japan will, of course, exact an
indemnity or a large cession of
territory, and adequate guaran
tees of peace. She will also
make her army even stronger
than it has already proved itself
in the field; and she will have a
navy more than treble its
strength at the beginning of this
There will also be a continen
tal Nippon as well as an insular
one; for Japan will cross the
Strait of Korea and establish
herself in the Liao-Tung and in
Korea and probably in the valley
of the Amur.
But the chief question as to
Japan's new programme has to
'do with her future attitude to
wad China and toward the Oc
cident. -Will she be truculent,
agrssve? Will she move China
to expel Germany from Kiao
chau, and France from Tong
king? Will she train and arm
China for a war on Europe? In
other words, is the future Nip
pon to be an empire of the sword
or "big stick?"
If she follows her former Eu
ropean and American teachers,
she will cultivate the spirit of
"imperialism," and prate of a
"greater" Japan, a 1-a England,
or undertake the "peaceful pene
tration" of Asia a la France or as
sail friendly nations with "mailed
fists" a la Germany or with "big
stick" a la Roosevelt, or "bene
volently assimilate'- them a
la America. We could not sin
cerely, or without stultification,
object to such a policy.
But Japan has, we may justly
infer, far other ideals than those
of military conquest. She will be
qiuite content to settle down to
the large task of working out
her manifold ideals in industrial,
commercial, political and intel
lectual life. No other people is
more suflicient to itself. The Jap
anese have before them at home,
Iand in the lands to be added to
the empire by this wai-, work to
employ them for years. Dr. Wil
liami Elliott Griffis, author of
"The Mikado's Empire," and an
authority on Japan, has just

Sun in which he says that Togo's

mon school education to unify a

man in Jatpan to inherit and en

"In her yet greater task of
standards of commercial, sexual
and personal morality, in exalt

full academic freedom of re
search and publication-in a

and less renowned than those of

We should remember that Ja
pan is tighting a war not of her
sceking, but provoked by Russia:
that the great triumph of her
arms on sea and land which ap
pal Europe, were not fought for
in a spirit of aggression. but
were made necessary by the ag
gression of a European power.
Japan's programme is a policy
of tranquility at home and
abroad. Her purpose is to pro
mote the welfare and happiness
of her own people. It is a re
proach to the West that it sus
pects the motives of a country
that has done so much in the in
terests of humanity, and that is
actually fighting alone a war
that is as much the cause of Eng
land and America and China as
it is her cause. It is a reproach
to our courage that we, a group
of Western peoples, civilized and
marshaled in great military
camps of millions of men, and
with fleets covering the seas,
are afraid of the Japanese. Sure

WHAT THE WHITE RIBBON HAS
DONE FOR ME.
'Tis not showy or grand, but
simple and plain, our bow of
white ribbon, yet it means so
much to me. It doesn't signify
that the wearer only refrains
from drink, as some people sup
pose, but it means purity and
love of God.
We are all so weak and faulty
no matter how hard we try to do
right, and we are apt to be self
ish nearly always. I have felt
many times that my task was too
hard, and I must give it up and
leave it unfinished. I have
thought the call of duty to be too
stern and unrelenting, and I
would rebel against it. It has
seemed that the battle which 1
must needs fight was too fierce
for one so weak to enter. I have
come very near being a coward.
It was then that the white rib
bon helped me to look at it re
minded me of my promise to
keep my hears xure and love my
Creator. Then.I would think,
those who love -Him must serve
Him, and the task became light
er, duty less stern, and the bat
tle easier to fight. In fact the
white ribbon has helped me to
do my honest duty.
Some people feel very un
friendly toward our union and
make unkind. hurting remarks,
which is very discouraging in
deed. Some have even gone so
far as to ridicule it, and say it
does more harm than good.
Then I am tempted to think and
say hard things, but my white
ribbon tells me that I must not.
I don't like to argue religious
matters, and I don't think it's
right. When people can't agree
about such things or discuss
them friendly, they should avoid
the subject. But I have some
times been almost forced into
arguments about temperance,
and have been defeated as many
or more times than I've won.
Have been called prejudiced,
bias and fanatical on -the sub
jct. During those dark, tempt
ing times the little white ribbon
has been to me a source of
The sweetest comfort that
come- to me from the white rib
"on, I'm afraid, is a selfish one.
After a day of toil and conflict,
labor and strife, I sink wearily
down to rest, it says so sooth
ing and consolingly, "She hath
done what she could." Again, if
the day has been victorious and
I have won successes for the
cause that I love, it speaks
cheerfully the Glent message,
"She hath done what she could."
Since the white ribbon helps
me in so many ways, and is pro
ductive of good, I hope I may
never cease to wear it. or diso
bey its teachings; but, instead I
humbly desire to be enbued with
power from Him for whose sake
I wear it, to induce others to join
our band and wear with us the
simple but blessed white ribbon.
A MARTR'S CROWN.
Nearly thirty years ago, in the
Island of Madagascar,many were
put to death for faith in Christ.
One little girl, only ten years
old, was asked, " Why don't you
worship in the idol temples?"
She answered: "Because I love
Jesus, my Saviour, who suffered
on the cross in my stead1. The
idols can do me no good." "But
you must give up this new re
igion and come back to the idol
temples." "No. I will never
give up Jesus." "Then we will
cas yon hadlong from the top
of that hi.it rock. and voui will
be killed." "I saw you throw
mv father and mother down. so
take mne nlow. and throw mrue Ovel
the precipice, and I shall go to
.Jesus." "How foolish of you to
suifer that dreadful death when
you might save your life and
have beautiful presents. if you
will only worship these idols
again." All these entreaties
could not move her. She cried,
"Throw me over the rocks, and
then I shall be with Jesus."
And the cruel man seized the
child and cast her down upon the
rocks; but her spirit quickly
took its Ilight to Good, and
"when Jesus comes to reward
the faithful," she will receive "a
crown of life" "that fadeth not
away." Rev. 11:10; Jas. 1:12.

The Fumes4 of Mercury Methide Will

"The more dreadful poisons." said a
chemist. "are only known to a few
men. Mercury methide, for instance.
the inhalation of whose fumes pro

"Dhatoora is a poison used In India.
It too, produces incurable idiocy. A
British army oficer told me of a sad
case-a case of two rival tailors, one
of whom gave the other a small dose
of dhatoora. The victim of the drug
remained an idiot all the rest of his
life. He sat and moved his empty
hands as though he were sewing. He

THE RUSSIAN ICON.
It Is Simply a Religious Picture
Blesmed by a Priest.
An Icon is simply a religious picture,
generally of little artistic merIt, and
the subject usually represented is ei
ther a Russian saint, some event in the
life of Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary.
In the Greek chuirch, as in other Chris
tian churches, the worship of graven
images Is forbidden, but no objection
is made to anything reproduced on a
fiat surface. Therefore Icons are per
mitted In the form of mosaics, paint
ings, enamels or prints. They play ar.
Important part In the religious life of
the Russians and are to be met with
everywhere-in churches, public offices,
private houses and shops. A picture
to become an icon must be blessed by
a priest, and it is then regarded not en-.
ly as an ornament, but as an accessory
in the worship of the Greek church.
Icons are also worn on the person.
when they take the form of a plaque
or a book with two leaves. Almost ev
ery soldier wears one on his bosom,
and when he prays he takes out his
icon and, opening it, kneels down be
fore it as if it wvere a portable altar.
Every regiment has its own icon,
which it carries as it would carry its
banner when the regiment goes into
