People seem to have forgotten that . there was a Japanese war scare with active press agonts n few weeks ago. The determination ot two nations to avoid war makes it very hard lo bring about hostilities. The governments' ot Japan and the Culled Stillos do not want war, und they will be able t< (ivpid n clash, however much others may waul to see a bloody and expen? sive conflict. Ii may be said as a re? futation of this assertion tl-.at the governments of the United States und Spain did not want war and yet it came. Rut It musl be rjumomborod that one entire political party de? manded war, or what meant the same tiling, the freedom of Cuhn. Joined with this parly was enough of Iho other party to make a majority In botA houses of Congress. Congress bus the power to declare war and it wan Con? gress that took action which brought on the conti lei with Spnin> it is to lie doubted very much whether there Ik a single Individual in Congress who would favor any action in reference to the Japanese which might cause ? COIltllCt, unless perhaps members id the California delegation. They do not want war, but they do want a wore vlgbroue policy adopted toward the Japanese nnd favor such a policy even if war should bo the result. ONE MAN WHO DIDN'T LEAVE THE FARM. Every once in a while there breaks out n discussion in the press us to tho cause <,f the restlessness of young men on the farms ami In the small country towns. and the remedy therefor. A great deal is said about the young men who rush away to the cities or go roving about the world, and n great deal Is printed about tho men who, grown tollworn and weary in tho cities, long to gel back close to nutate as life's evening draws to -t close. The rolling stone that gathers no moss Is discussed, und the roving ninn who makes millions la held up as n product of our later civilization thai shows humanity at its liest ns n pro? ducer; but little or nothing Is said of the fellows who stick close to home, nnd do their life's work within the limited circle of their own Inglonook, or their own little village or town. But it Is accepted as a truism thai "they also serve who only stand und ?wall," and certainly this old gentle? man seems to have stood a good deal and to have waited a long while. His one hundredth birthday was cel. brntcd a few days ago, nnd all the peoplo of the little village or Middle town springs, Vermont, participated jin the celebration, Just as though he were ? great general or a statesman of vast Influence und power or a scholar who has added vastly to the world s store of knowledge. There was A dinner to whic h every man, woman and child in the plane was Invited. Then there was a band conceit, foi which a good hand was brought from a city at the expense of the people. In fact, tho whole celebration was a tribute to Mr. Alphcus Heynes, who was bom in Mlddletown Springs a hundred yeara ago, hits never been out of the little town, has been a dea? con or the Presbyterian church for 71 years, voted at 1ft presidential elec Hons, am! never tasted tobacco or It quor. NEW YOR,( TO LOOK INTO FARM QUESTION. Now York State Ih at last awaken? ing to the fart that there are some Illings In tlm commonwealth to he considered hcside the cities which It contains, it has been the policy of New York in the past to advance In every possible way tile cities to the neglect of the country districts ond the result lins been thai today tlm .stale has about i^.noi) abandoned farms on its hands and that In many agricultural districts the population lias d< creased from 40 to 50 per cent. While some of the New England stntes have realized for some lime past that something must he done to hold people in the country. New Votk has allowed the mutter to drift along umII now It has become almost a menace to certain portions of the stale. The people of the stale are going to hold u convention for the puipiiso of ascertaining if possible some rem? edy for the evil, If such It enn be called. The farming Industry in that slate has fallen In valuation within the past decade or so $170,006,000. That is an enormous amount oven for a stale of the resources of New York. The theory has beeil hdvanc-l c<| thai the soil has become exhaust? ed, hut exports Buy Unit thin is not I rue and ihttl the soil Is good as over. What the real cause Is the conven? tion win endeavor to iimi out. A farm lllllld in the northern part or New York Stale arose at I a. ill. isjid u very short time afterwards lightning struck the bed which ho had just piled out of. Tile lesson is striking but still most men will take the chance of remaining in bed just a bit longer. Such au ardent advocate of vego 'torlnitisiu as .Senator La KollottO will hesitate a hon I going into the Chicago packing yards for delegates' to sup? port him at the national convention. A globe trotter is out with the slntemunl that New York Is nut so wicked as cither Paris or Chicago.
