TEACH RULES OP COURTING.
Japaxese Secondary Schools 2S"ow Teacli
The Japanese, quick to imitate and
equally quick to originate, have added
"courtship" as a special course in the j
girls" secondary schools of the empire, j
From the limited information vre have i
secured concerning the character of the J
new study it might be regarded as a i
series of "Donf's." The Japanese girls
axe told that no well bred maiden will i
give her photographs to her admirers i
If the admirers offer theirs she will '
refuse them. Should a maiden have
the misfortune to fall in love before .
she is engaged, she must cairecully con- '
ceal the humiliating fact and keep in
mind that a proposal of marriage can
never come from her the very sugges
tion of such boldness being an of- j
fence to maidenly dignity. :
Quite likely the game of courtship as j
playeft In Japan would be voted tame

According to the Japanese rules it
would seem to be a decidedly one-sided
amusement. The three little maids from
school, and all the other little Japanese
maids. Mimosa San and her wistaria
decked sisters, are expected to stand
around in demure poses and wait for
the condescending Nanki Poos to no

CONSCRIPTION IN ENGLAND.
Safety From Invasion Rests With
In common with the other advocates
of conscription, Lord Roberts has ex
aggerated fears of invasion. In fact,
the whole case, such as it is, for com
pulsory service in this country rests
"upon the possibility of an enemy landing-
on our shores, "says the London
Chronicle. Whether Invasion is pos
sible is a naval and not a military
problem. Now, notoriously the best
naval opinion Is against Lord Roberts'
views. Given our retention of com
mand of the sea, and the British navy
will be able to deal effectually with
any invading host, come it whence it
may. A surprise raid by a force of
70,000 to 100,000 men is conceivably
possible. But, as admiral Sir John
Hopkins told the Norfolk commission,
such a force would be "swallowed up"
in this country. Our safety from in
vasion depends not on a conscribed
militarj- force, but on a predominant
navy. As conscription is not needed
for home defence, there is no reason
at all for its existence, for conscript
soldiers cannot be constrained to serve
Much is often said about the physica
advantages of military service. That
there is much physical and moral de
terioration among- our urban popula
tion cannot be denied. The remedy for
it is not compulsory soldiering, which
might even aggravate-the disease. For
real amelioration we must go to the
root causes. The chief of these are
drink and gambling. Far more good
would be done by warring against
these evils than by scares about
Imaginary "invaders." But this is war-j
fare in which we shall get no help'
from the house of lords and the jin
goes. Benumbed by drink, with no
higher ideal than a "flutter" on a horse
race, the residuum of our great towns
can always be relied upon to vote tory,
and the whole crowd of publicans, bet
ting men and tipsters is permanently
brigaded on the side of the reaction
aries. Even with these allies the advo
cates of conscription will not prevail,
for the system is utterly repugnant to
