Offlca Public Ledger Building. Bntsred at tba Maysvllls., Kentucky. Poatofflce aa Becond-claes Mall Matter For President- Charles I, Hughes of New York. For Vice-President Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana. LOCKING THE DOOR TOO LATE When a farmer owns a valuaMl Moocletl horse In; proleits Mai self from loss at tin- hand ol t liievea l put linn " padlock M his barn door. The banker who mm for your MM locks it up in his flWN burglar proof safe at night. When the merchant k"ocm home after Hie day's labor he leaves his goods under loek and key and bolts and bars. The individual invariably takes measures to protect his own Hut not so with us as a nation. We have accumulated vast stores of wealth, but have negelecteil to provide the necenaaiy means for the protect f that wealth. It is true that after months of indifference congress has at last passed a preparedness measure by providing for the increase of the regular armj and the National (Hoard to a total approximate Porei of bout 700,000 men. Bui il will be several years before this forct can be gathered together and armed and equipped and drilled and disciplined and put in shape to meet an enemy on equal terms. In the meantime we are just about where we were before the bill was passed without a lock to our door. It is not likely now that we will have any trouble with Euro pean countries alter the present war is over. We sincerely hope not But We are not so sanguine as to the attitude of dapan. Our present state of national helplessness has forced congress and the administration lo bow to the demands pf Japan and eliminate from an immigration bill certain sections which were designed to protect American laboring men from the cheap Japanese labor that has been Hooding this country. There was no help for it. It was a case of bow or fight, and we are in no condition to light. If Japan WOUld be content w ith her victory all might even v vt be fairly well. But it is doubtful if she will be content. The Japa nese are a warlike people, determinedly bent upon securing equal rights on the American continent. And right hei ntcrs the pi c sent element of danger to our pence and security of the future. The Mexican, hate everything America it. They are imbued with the mistaken idea that we are I people who will not light, and hence they consider US beneath their contempt. It is reasonably well know n thai Mexican emissaries are in Japan seeking the aid of the Japanese people in war against the United States. Nothing would suit the Japanese designs and purposes better than such an alliance, ft would afford them the coveted opportunity and excuse for seizing the Philippines, which they greatly desire, A great army could be landed on our Pacific eoaal and we could not prevent it. Another tremendous army of Japanese COUld be landed in Mexico, and in cooperation with the .Mexicans could invade us across the border at a hundred different points simultaneously, Oui present military strength is so ridiculously small that We would be hopelessly outnumbered and outmatched at every point. Press dispatches show every indication that the .Mexicans are ex pee ting just such an alliance with the Japanese, and if the attack comes at all it will not be delayed until We have had two or three yean in which to collect and drill an army. It will come soon, while we are still in a hopeless ami helpless condition. The American people are at last awakening to a realisation of the peril of our national helplessness, and congress is taking belated 'steps toward defense for our homes and our great wealth. But are we locking the door too late? Will the marauder gain entrance be fore the padlock can be made .' A stick of dynamite is a child's tov ' pared with the Mexico Japanese situation which confronts the American government and people today. A single word from Tokyo ar Mexico City is of more vital con. cern to us than a w hole column from the Kuropean front.

On this point doubt can no longer exist, for after many years those who have been cured, emphati cally declare their cures to be last ing. Frederick Hresel. ISM K.

We quote a few of the many bargains: lugs of men, ami eke of women, whose style has not been smoothed into tlat monotony by the Iron of convention They dare lo be ingeiious. ami when they have a thought that happens sometimes, even in the countrythey put It on paper in all the courage ol their innocence. A truly charming example of the ge nially naive is the following, grate fully clipped from the banner of llometow n, Pennsylvania: "It is with sorrow that we announce an accident to Mrs. John Whitman wife of the well-known grticer, wno sells three pounds and a hair of sugar for a quarter. While he was chasing her around the yard in fun the other evening sho stepped on an old tomato can Bsverely lacerated her foot. Should blood poisoning set in and she be re moved from our midst the Banner will turn its column rules' as a tribute to her." Tints can the editor who is really kind mitigate the appi vuheiisions of a well-regarded neighbor by a promise of posthumous honors!
