WHAT WILL RUSSIA DO?
Ellhu Root, who is now In
Russia as an Ambassador Ex
traordinary from the United
States and chief of the Ameri
can Commission, once said that
"Popular government is organ
ized self-control." No wiser
words, no truer words were ev
er uttered. Fitness for self
government depends wholly up
on the acceptance and applica
tion of that great principal, and
until the Russian people have
.learned it they can never es
tablish, republican institutions.
There is no other road to self
government Democracy knows
no other rule and its life de
pends upon its obedience to that
Our concern with Russia is
not restricted to the assistance
that it can render to the Enten
te Powers in this war. In no
small measure the peace of the
world in the future depends up
on the ability of the Russian
people to establish and main
tain free institutions under
which they can work out their
own destiny. If they fail, their
failure means the return of au
trocracy and despotism and the
reestablishment of the regime
of darkness, with all it implies
to the rest of mankind.
The first lesson they have t-)
learn is the lesson of organized
self-control; until that is mas
tered they can make no pro
gress in democracy.
WHY DID THE U. S. CO TO
A pamphlet entitled "How the
War came to America" and in
tended as an answer to the que..'
tion, "Why did the United States
go to war?" has just been pub
lished by the government's com
mittee on Public Information.
It contains among other things
three notable war addresses of
President Wilson. It is a fore
runner of a series of "red, white
and bule books" to be put out
as the war progresses. The
pamphlet just off the press will
be translated intp many lan
guages and circulated broadcast
The idea is a good one and will

Fashions In Japan.
A camdlc Japanese critic, Salto Man,
una this to say In the Tokyo Advertiser
tlmtit women's fashions in Japan:

Tha Eltctric Light li Raiponilbla For
The Introduction of electric light was,
of course, responsible for greater Inno
vations lu the art of stuge decoration
tbau any other one thlug. It was now
(KM-slble to light up equally well any
INjrtlou of the stage, ami so the "apron"
wuk dIiieiiMxI with and the picture
frame proscenium introduced.
The cry for realism which Ibsen's
dramas bad aroused was now taken
up by the scene builders with enthusl
attic vigor, aud "nature" was repro
duced lu every material detail. "We
must show life exactly as it is," be
came their motto.
Tint changes naturally also had an
effect upon the actors themselves and
upon what they said. Formerly the
actors were continually conscious of
the premice of the audience, and to a
considerable degree addressed It di
rectly. Now they could interpret the
story on Uie stage, entirely Ignoring,
apttareutly, the presence of the audi
ence. This change in the conception of the
play as a whole, as being made up not
alone of dialogue and recitation, but
alw of uction and pictorial representa
tion, lias had a very farryachlng effect
on our iiroent day conception of the
drama. Review of Reviews.
Cats among animals and owls among
birds, says W. II. Hudson In his book.
"Idle Days In Patagonia," ure the most
highly favored of any creatures in the
matter of luminous eyes. "The feline
eyes, ns of a puuia or a wildcat, blaz
ing with wrath, sometimes affect one
like nn eleUrlc- shock, but for Intense
brilliance the yellow globes of the owl
are unparalleled." Mr. Hudson asserts
that nature has done comparatively lit
tle for the human eye either In these
terrifying splendors or In beauty. He
says that lu Brazil he was greatly Im
pressed with the magnificent appear
ance of many of the negro women, but
that if they had only possessed the
"golden hides" of certain intensely
black tropical birds their "unique love-llne-s"
would have been complete.
Preparedness on tha Farm.
Every farmer ought to believe In pre
paredness, says Farm and FlrcBlde. the
kind of prepa redness that provides
tested rather than guessed seed corn;
that sees that all farm machinery is
carefully looked over and the badly
worn or broken parts replaced before
the beginning of the rush season; that
mukes ready a supply of holts and
taps, extra tap rings and clevises, sin
gletrees and at least one extra pair of
doubletrees. Man labor and horse la
bor are too expensive and time too pre
cious to take chances of risks which
might easily be avoided.

SOLDIERS ON THE MARCH.
Otstancss That Tralnad, Hardanad Man
Can Covar In a Day.
The Army Drill Hook tells that train
I ed and hardened Infantry can cover
1 from twenty to twcnty-llve miles a day
when lu small bodies. As tho alio of
I the command Increases the distance
covered becomes less, as the rate Is
I lowered- and time Is needed to get all
the units Into and out of camp.
With a regiment or less of averag
troopu regulars marching over aver
age roads, tho rate should be from two
aud three-quarters to throe miles an
hour, while a dlrUlou cannot be ex
pected to accomplish wore than twelve
and a half miles a day.
Of course; all ,theo figures will vary
with diffcreut conditions of roads and
weather. Untrained troops could not
approach them until hardened. Though
they might do better for a day or two,
they could not keep up the steady puce
of the seasoned regulars for a long dis
tance. Marching with full equipment Is hard
physical work, and, like every other
form of labor, requires a projwr erlod
of training. The seasoned force will
keep up a steady pace, with ten minute
halts every hour, a tlfteen minute stop
being made at the end of tho llrM half
or three-quarters of an hour. Green
troojw are apt to straggle badly.- Out
Holland and Flowers.
It was only after the fall of Con
stantinople In 115,1 that Holland be
came such u gay hind of llowers ns it
uow Is. Many Dutchmen went to the
east during the years of the great cm
sades, aud those of them who loved
beautirul tilings brought many home
again with them. Not only did they
carry away with them silks and em
broideries. Jewels, spices aud fruits,
but In the bottoms of their ships they
brought seeds. When these seeds were
planted lu the rich soil of Holland such
wondrous llowers appeared as had
never before been seen in that north
ern couutry. Thu people became wild
ly enthusiastic over the new colors aud
scents and foliage brought to them
from the east, und In Holland tliero
sprang up a great love for gardening.
Origin of the Jury 8ystem.
A Jury Is a body of laymen sum
moned und sworn to ascertain the truth
as to facts raised lu legal proceedings.
The Jury system of the United States
developed from that of England. This
in turn had its origin in Frauklsh in
quest, which was translated into Eng
land by Norman kings. In these In
quests a body of neighbors was sum
moned by a public officer to give an
swer upon oath on some question of
fact or law or of mixed fact and law, 1
In the beginning tho object of the in- j
quiry was usually to obtain informa
tion for the king to ascertain facts
needed for assessing taxes.
Couldn't Stand Defeat.
Dr. Grenfell tells an amusing story
of the introduction of football in Lab
rador, when defeat was considered so
unendurable a mortification that it iiad
to be mutually agreed beforehand that !
neither side should win. "Wo saw,"
he says, "the unusuul spectacle of the
side that had been scored against sol
emnly ullowed to walk across tho field
and kick a goal to save them the feel
ing of being beaten,''
