Large numbers of people from Valentine and the country surrounding Sparks attended both days and they had a grand time. Some , camped on the ground and many thought they would do so next year and en.joy out door life for the time. The exhibits of grain were said to be good but not as complete as at Britt the week pre vious. The news from the Russo-Japa nese war comes to us every day in the daily papers to the effect that Kuropatkin , the general in com mand of the Russian forces at Liao Yang , has evacuated that place and is in full retreat towards Muk den farther north with the Japanese in full pursuit and described as a race to see whether Kuropatkin would reach Mukden first to re lieve other Russian forces before the Japanese should cut him off. If the Russian forces should reach Mukden first it is stated that he will evacuate with the forces of that post and go to Harbin , taking with them the stores of Lioa Yang and Mukden over muddy roads with mules and bullocks steaming with persp'ration. Port Arthur still stands firm and the Japs who wore reported as getting as far as Gen. Stoessel's house , probably wont farther than they could go with safety , as they have not been heard of since. There are no re ports recently of any attempt to bombard Port Arthur and it is thought that the greatest victory has been achieved , if the corres pondents who have been sending such wild reports are captured or or killed. There has been too much of this pounding away at Russia as though our country was taking an active part in the strug gle. AYo do not rejoice at the grotesque cartoons of the AYorld- Herald and other papers picturing Russia as a grizzly bearded fellow of dark colors and wild staring eyes as though frightened to death at the little nimble Japanese , pic tured as throttling the Russian bear or sinking him in a sea of de spondency. It is tailing a"h active part in the diocussiou of the war and will encourage those favorably inclined to assist Japan in the con flict. Sentiment runs too high and it will be hard to preserve a neutral feeling and a neutral policy if fav- oriteism is so freely expressed by ! leading journals of our land.
