EYES ON JAPAN.
"The Govirnment at Tokio will act
energetically, but it is impossible to
say in what way, it not being desired
to' have the enemy know anything
of i's plans," Gen. Somba, of the
Japanese army, is quoted in Rome
r.s'declariitg in an interview regard
ing the situation in the Far East
Viscount Motono, the Japanese For
eign .Minister, is also quoted as say
ing: "Should peace be actually
concluded," he continued, "it goes
without saying that Japan will take
steps of the most decided, most ade
quate character to meet the occa
sion." Now that Russia has actually
undertaken to violate her agreement
with the allies and nuke a separate
peace, interest len'vr on whit
Japan will do.
It is quite likely tliHt an invasion
by Japan will give the patriotic peo
ple of Russia the courage and op
portunity to attempt som? sort of
resistance and it may njt be leng
before a divided Rusiia will be l.neJ
up on both sides of the war, the
factions fighting each other, one
backed by Japan and the other by
Germany. Ai'.hough her plans are
being kept secret, Japan is from all
accounts ready to ac". and when she
strikes she will strike hard.

A .lit a had been In Cartervtlle for
Just two months, two long, lonely
months, during which she grew to hate
every dusty street of the shabby little
town. It was not all shabby, of course.
There were a few square white bouses
with green blinds.
Anita taught English In the Carter-
vtlle high school and as "teacher" she
enjoyed a sort of social eminent.
The Culture club had taken her In,
and the minister's wife askeJ her to
tea, hot the young people, n girls her
age who should have been her
companions, looked at her askance.
Of course, none of theae CarterrlHe
boys and girls would be poaslble
friends for her, anyway. Fhe told her
self this a Uttle vehemently, perhaps,
to still tie loneJy togging at ber heart.
At the eod of two months, however,
things be run to be different There
was a young man who boarded at the
ralace hotel, a nice-looking young
man with brown eyes and the sort of
nose one Imagines to be aristocratic.
Anita watched htm sometimes In the
dining room and sometimes she lis

about ; when he Is very good looking;
when he sits at a table near you In
the hotel dlnlmt room every morning
and evening, when you are a girl, and
lonesome. It Is hard to be bound by the
traditions of the rroudest of families.
Once, when she felt that he was look
ing after her as she left the room, she
was blinded by a sort of hateful self
consciousness that made her trip,
awkwardly, and fall. In an Instant he
was on his feet, helping her up.
"Are yon hurt?" he asked.
"Not at all. thonk you."
She was aware thnt her tone was
cold. Inhospitable. Tie bowed gravely
and returned to his seat neor the win-,

Russia Originally Democrat!.

Russia that arose out of Rurlk the
Norman's conquests, and bad Its cap
ital at Kiev. There were czars and
overlords after a fashion. But the
real government of Russia was Jn the
