Uncle Samuel should be ready to answer the door at any time now, for missions from Liberia and China may come and catch tho old gent with his stripes off. May tho good Lord deliver us from the day on whlclr Congressmen nnd U. S. Senators, come homo to un burden themselves of great speeches on the war patriotism. We don't profess to know anything about who Is in fault, but we do know that each of these strikes are as a knife stab under the fifth rib, to the Country, at tho present time. Headed by Viscount Ishll, wo have as visitors in this country n bunch of Japanese Dignitaries, who como load ed with olive branches, on each ot which a peace dove is gently perching. These Japs aro ateo absolutely guar enteelng to care of any and all sorts of disorder arising within the Pacific Ocean, theroby releasing nil of Uncle Sam's war craft for duty in the At lantic and other waters. Three or four years ago this sort of proposal from the Japs would have almost pro duced a state of war, more especially on the Pacific slope. How time nnd conditions do change. There may, or there may not any thing of tangible valuo or immediate, permanent good bo derived from tho pence proposals of Pope Benedict, yot the world takes hopo, that in tho dis cussion certain to follow, Bomo ray of light may trickle thru tho war clouds, that tho rift may bo widened sufficient to let pure sunshine thru. Tho pro position coming from tho sourco from whonco It does, is sufficient cause for attracting attention. From no other, supposedly neutral Individ ual on tho globe, would tho peace proposals recolvo even passive notice. A llttlo leaven sometimes lcavenoth the whole lump. May It be so in this instance, v ':airij.i:eBSsi I'lllffFwTii o Referring to the fact that tho FIs- eal Court recently turned down a proposition to submit the stock law question to tlie whole County, wo bellevo that the Court did the proper thing. Wo don't know how any In dividual ot the Court voted, nor do wo care. Nearly all of the County has the stock law In full force and effect, and the whole County has vot ed upon this question at times, by the precinct method. There arc perhaps less than n half dozen precincts wherein it is lawful to let stock run at large and these precincts nave held elections upon this question and dofented tho measure.

As a matter , nf rniirso there is Generally two sides to all questions. The writer is, per- sonally for the proposition of every man keeping his stock In due bounds, but no is also just ns strong lor tue proposition that each precinct govern it's own affairs along this line and If it sees fit, by a majority vote, to corv- fine the stock, do so, but having a stock law In my precinct, I fail to see what right I have in saying to Center- few days' leave, or If Gen.
