The Sparks re-union was a suc
cess. 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
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.
