of the war, France and England
put a ban on the sale of German
goods in their territories.
The press of Switzerland al

AN AWAKENED NATION.
In oast aces Russia has been
looked upon as a brute, the bully
among nations. No atrocity has
been too horrible for the officials i
and soldiers of the Czar to commit.
Civilization was a word foreign toi
Little account was taken of hu-j
man lives when they were involved
in the carrying out of a decree of
the Czar. The common masses'
were no more than creatures des-'
tined to exploitation that the gov
ernment might be enriched. The
killing of a few hundred of them '
mattered little in the final sum-'
ming up. I
This condition still held ten
years ago when the nation was at
war with Japan. Civic and econ
omic conditions were chaotic. Dis
order was everywhere and Russia
seemed doomed to dissolution.
There was open hostility toward
the government. Strict guard was
kept over the Czar and other high
officials to protect them from the
rage of the people.
At Petrograd workmen with a
protest to the Czar marched to
ward the Winter Palace. They
were met by a shower of bullets
from machine guns and by Cos
sacks and mercilessly slaughtered.
Little wonder that army recruits
were gathered at the point of the

an empire of 170,000,000 people is
going into this war in a business
like way that shows a determina
tion of winning.
The awfulness of war is felt In
Russia as keenly as in other na
tions. Peasant and noble alike are
making the sacrifice for a national
ideal. Women of both classes may
be seen intermingled before the
lists of killed that are posted each
day. All receive the news bravely

voters getting scared at the amount
of paper they .have to carry to the
booth; though some of Columbia's
election judge's were willing to re
lieve him of that burden by asking
"What ticket do you want?" I re
ceived a sample ballot from Arizo
na soon after the recent election
and it was about the same size as
our amendment ballots. The state,
county and township officers were
placed on it and nineteen amend
ments. The voter was not com-1
pelled to write the name of a can
didate if he wanted to scratch a
party ticket. In voting the amend
ments an hour's reading was not
necessary as the subject of the
amendment was there and that is
all the average man wants to
know. There was also after each
amendment: "If you favor this

Her answer was literally cor
rect. After running an automobile
as far as possible she left the ma-

a half feet; then she gave up the
hope of seeing her farm.
