THEY LOVED THEIR HOMES
Tbe civil'ged people of the world
were attooinbed when little Japan
threw down the gsa of battle to the
naticnal gi .nl Russia.' The coucen
u of all was that Japan was pre
nmptious and vain, aed went into
Ibe war with the ohances largely
against ber. Now that tbe war if
over and Japtn is tbe acknowledged
victor the world is wondering how it
happened tbat a nation with a sea
girl dominion of but 147 ,655 rtjuare
miles and a population ol but 45,862,-
000 people oould have whipped Russia
with its 8.660,31)5 squarj miles and
141.000 ,000 people.
Measured by people Ruesia bad six
tnd one tevenib time as many folks
as Japan al the beginning of tbe war.
In aria Kunsit was 68 times larger
tban Japan. To make the fornign
tra le an index of the wealth of tbe
two nations, Russia is the rioher of
tba two. In 1903 tbe U 8 Bureau of
statistics gave the imports and ex
ports of Russia as aggregating f 097,-
929,000 with the balance of trade in
Russia's favor of $86,6 Jl, 000. In Hi
sa ne tsbte the foreign trade of Japnn
s given at $ '62,618,000, a little more
than one third the si.e of Russia's
foreign commerce, while tbu balance
of tmde was $7 ,006,000 Bgaiont Japan.
The foreign trade of Kuiit;a enabling
bet to lay up $86,601,000 annually
while Japan hail to pay a balance in
oash of $7,006,000 to eqtiare accounts
(or tbe year. ".
Yet with all thene great o.lds against
ler little Japan came out 'victoriou
and the world is awking, "How did it
happeu?" Miliary critics, whoee
braius teem with enoomiuais on Fred
rick tbaOreat's dtwiplina, Napoleon's
military axioms, Wellington's obstin
acy under fire or Grant's "poundii g
away", nre as much at a loss for an
explanation of how it happened as aie
men less verted in military afTtirs.
fbat tlio RuftsiaD soldiery fought with
t stolid bravery is manifest from the
awful slaughter they witneed with
out panio, The only d flerence iu
the fighting qualities ol iLe soldiers ol
Runsia and Jspan, obervable at this
listeuot, in the Rnasians fought stolid
as maohiues doing an altoted woik in
obedltmce to oiders. Tbe JaDanexe
fought with brain, hetrt and gun each
ulliner and private keenly alert, and
individually anxious to make eaul
ih it count and contribute to victory.
The Russian soldiers left their (amiliet
in K)nl;d homes,, if huts surrounded
with squalor, filth and in waut of tbe
ordinary necessities of life may be call
ed homes. The Japas left til -neurit
well veutilated homes amid cherry
trees and garden ol fl iwera in which
gaunt hunger Is unknown. The Jspt
left homes they loved and a countrj
they honored a:.d fought acourdingly,
Out of a population of 45.000,000 In
Japan 30.000,000 are farmers, and it is
said all the farm houses are neat, the
farmers aud their families well I
