SUNDAY - - JULY 31, 1898
AMERICA IS TIIE FAR EAST.
With the eastern question, so long
paramount in the international affairs
ot Europe, the United Stales did not
concern itself. It stood aloof in
neutral isolation. It did not matter
' to us whether Russia got down into
the Mediterranean or not. Turkey,
the sick man, was no patient of ours
Hut the far eastern question was and
is an entirely different proposition
It concerns us. The west coast of
America and the east coast of Asia
are washed by the same ocean.
It is a great good fortune for this
country that events have taken such
a turn that the United States is to
day a conspicuous national personal
ity in the Orient. The world at
large is now as much interested to
know what the United States will do
. in the Orient as to know what Ger
man', Great Biitain, or even Russia,
is doing, or proposes to do. From
the standpoint of the supreme inter
national question of the period, there
has been a literal fulfillment of the
old Hebrew prophecy, "A nation
shall be born in a day." That day
was May 1, 1898.
It is now four years since Lord
Rosebery referred to the far eastern
question as something too porten
tous for our imagination, and infin
itely graver than the eastern ques
tion. He did not pretend to fore
cast its shape or outlines. He saw
it only in what he well termed "the
dim vistas of futurity." It is still
vague and shadowy, but one thing
can be clearly discerned the Atner
can navy with coaling stations
wherever they arc needed.
bomeone has said that military
power is now estimated in terms of
navies rather than of armies. This
will certainly be the case henceforth,
if it never was befoie. The same
writer remarked: "Coal and coal
ing stations now mark the bounds of
empire, as the Roman militar- roads
lid of old." No doubt this has been
understood plainly enough for a
long time in higher military circles,
but the world at large the general
public of the civilized nations had
very little conception of the epoch
making change. This war is the
first practical demonstration of the
Fortunately tor mankind no less
than for America, the United States
has the money aud ibe skill required
1o build and man ibe battlethips
needed to make this ti flt'st-class
power- under the new" conditons,
Mill more fortunately the opportu
nity has presented jtsetf for us to
possess ourselves of the necessary
coaling static ns. Amateur diplo
macy may toy with the great theme
but events will move on without i
variation from the course of destiny
.A majestic tide in-the affairs of our
-nation is at the flood, and no weak
pipings of timidity or pessimism can
stay its onward sweep. Inter Ocean
In many directions fortune is lav
ishing her favors on the United
States. Not only are we fighting
successfully a war which will result
in a great triumph for civilization,
but the crop reports are among the
most favorable ever received at this
time of the year. The wheat yield
will be the largest in the country's
history. That of 1892 was 611,000,
OOU bushels, which was 100,000,000
iter than the crop of any other
year in this country before or since.
la ly the wheat yield of the
United States is placed at figures
Tanging from 625,000,000 bushels to
660,000,000. The indications are
that the corn crop will equal or ex
ceed last year s unexampled yield,
which was 2,284,000,000 bushels. In
only three years before 1897 in
1890, 1892 and 1896 did the corn
crop of ibis country , pass the 2,000,
000,000 mark. This means good
times' for the farmer, and usually
when, the farmer prospers the coun
try prospers. .
The Oregon is coming in for a
large share of the praise being very
properly showered upon our war
vessels. Bat let us not forget the
Tbs Discovery or the Cay.
Aug" J. Bogel, the leading druggist of
Shreveport, La., Bays: ''Dr. King's
New Discovery is the only thing that
cures my congb, and it ia the best seller
I have." J. F. Campbell, merchant of
S afford, Ariz., writes : Dr. King's New
Discovery ia all that is claimed for it;
it never fails, and is a sure cure for con
sumption, coughs and colds. -1 cannot
eay enough for its merits." Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption, Colds
and Coughs is not an experiment. It
has been tried for a quarterof a century,
and today stands at the bead. It never
disappoints. Trial bottles free at Blake-
ley & Houghton's.
There is more Catarrs in this section
of the country than all "the diseases put
together, and until th last few years
was supposed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronounced it
a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by 'constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science ha9 proven catarrh
tobe a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires constitutional treatment
Hall's Catarrah Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in doses from ten
drops to a teasnoonful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testmonials. Address,

Our baby has been continually troub

his birth, and all that we could do tor
him did not seem to give more than
temporary relief, until we tried Cham

Remedy. Since,giving that remedy he
has not been troubled. We want to
give you this testimonial as an evidence
of our gratitude not that you need it to
