China has practically declared war
with civilization. International law and
custom makes it 'obligatory ior any gov
.eminent to protect the lives and property
of foreigners residing within its jurisdic
tion. Failing in this, it is law and cus
torn, for the foreign nation whose sub
jjects are in peril to land its own forcas
I within the limits of the nation which
,- fthrough weakness or malice fails in its
^-pduty, and protect its own subjects.
Within a year or so a secret society
Boxers have been at work ap
ifei^parently- attempting to kill all, native
?/vj?Chinese Christians and incidentally for
eigners. Churches, schools and other
missionary property has been burned
thus destroying an immense amount of
^property owned by foreigners. This
societ/ has of late risen to large numbers
and are armed and organized into a
regular army. The Empress mother of
China, who a short time ago forcibly
deposed her son, the emperor is appar
ently in open sympathy with the Boxers.
Appeals to the Chinese government to
restrain the Boxers and protect foreigners
and foreign property have gone un
heeded. Then Russia, France, Germany,
the United States and other countries
sent war ships and troops to protect
their own people. The ne»s thit

For a thousand years China's doors
were absolutely closed to foreigners.

keep them closed against the knocking

Now, China, in its pigheaded stupidity,
gives these hungry nations the oppor

meal they have long hungered for.
The possibilities in this most serious
situation are very great to the whole

The greatest hope for a peaceful solu
tion, after China is "pacificated," is the
jealousy and power of the European
nations, which may in Asia as it has in
Europe, prevent any one nation being

But this is the beginning of the end ot
China. It is the old story of civilization
vs. barbarism. Injustice, selfishness,
slaughter are incidentals, but the final
results are for' the betterment of the
The crop situation is undoubtedly very
serious probably more serious than for
many years, if not for any year since
settlement. There are yet localities and
fields that would produce a fair crop if
immediate soaking rain ensued. But for
many fields this statement is no longer
true and no amount of rain would pro
duce even a yield to pay the expense of
seed, labor and threshing.
The^ect on all branches of trade is
already very apparent and most parti

same is being done by dealers in other
Many farmers will plow down the
present crop and sow barley or flax and
some will plant fodder corn. In view of
the certainty of a shortage of hay such
crops will be very valuable for fodder,
perhaps nearly as much as a good yield
of wheat. The principal troAble with
present sowing however is the lack of
moisture to germinate the seed. If
sown and germinated at once, barley
would undoubtedly mature and fodder
corn produce a good,yield.
In l888, or thereabouts, the spring was
somewhat similar to this season. Afield
of about thirty acres sown, to oats and to
barley was seeded, plowed in, the last
not later than June 10th. July 10th not a
spear of oats or barley was above ground
and investigation proved |that the seed
though buried thirty days' showed'no
signs of sprouting. A rain came about
July 12th. July 15th the grain came
through the ground with a remarkably
thick stand. Frost came early that year,
somewhere about the third week in
August. The oats never headed, but
yielded about two tons of good hay to
the acre the barley headed out in good
shape and with ten to twenty days more
of good weather %ouId have filled and
ripened. As it was it made Excellent
feed from the sheaf when cut with the
binder. From which experience we
think it possible, with favorable weather,
to raise and ripen a crop of barley inside
of fifty days and a crop of oats inside of
sixty-five days. And slow germination
is the only risk the farmer runs who sows
now to prevent at least a good yield of
valuable fodder.

We wonder how many American
••Boers" will now turn Boxers. Really
as an abstract theory, much of the argu
ment in favor of the Boers is equally
applicable to the Boxers. They are
fighting for their religion. They w§nt
their own form of government, etc. Of
course there is a great difference between
a Boer and a Boxer personally. But un
doubtedly there is somewhat of a differ
ence between the Boer and the higher
types of European civilization.

cf the great curiosities of nature—a
