The papers,  however,  insist  that Russia' is",now  using     Kamranh Bay as a base tor  protection;     against their opponent.,  and says she intends to use it as  .he  point for effecting a junction with the  1 remaining division of the squadron.  If tire use of Kamranh Bay is continued the paper says Japan must',ie-  gard its neutrality as completely ignored  and site will not be obliged to  respect its neutrality/ Violations of  neutrality  in  distant ports are .tot-  important,      but .when close ,to the  scene" of war, it is impossible   ~ to"  view" them- with  the same leniency.  -The    Jiki      Shrimp further declares  France is lending  the Russian-efficient assistance, thus actually joining '  .issue with Russia agfeinst Japan, and  the government of. France will now  decisively act.  A Paris despatch says: The French  government  has  taken every precaution to secure the observation '- . yt  neutrality in French waters in Indo-  Chinia.    Instructions  have  been  sent  to AI.

These are identical   with  thp  nculialit^ rules in force during   tie  Spanish-American war.

Roanoke,  Va<,  April  18.���������Theodore  Roosevelt,  Jr.,  was one of a parly  of  lads    who stood  for  30  minutes  with  their    faces in a corner  while  the rest,of their companions enjoyed  a dance at one of the hospital houses  at v  Abfcington,   where he had   been  visiting-for the past week.   Teddy's  companions  were the sons  of Douglas Robinson of New York City, and  Dan  Trigg,  Jr.  of  Aldington.     This  humiliation    on    the     'part  of the  youngsters was  principally-for  flirting  with  school girls  at. Stonewall  Jackson institute in  that city,    >nd.  was    imposed  by Miss  Kate  Hunt,  principal of that institution.  During the progress  of  the  reception  mentioned,  Miss  Hunt  dropped  in,   and  on being introduced  to     the  guilty  boys,  asked  the  hostess vhafc  she    was  to do with the youngsters  for flirting with her girls.   When assured that the girls would be relieved from      punishment, young Roosevelt and  his companions agreed     to  Miss Hunt's sentence and stood with  their   faces  in  a corner  for  30   'ninnies,   while  the remainder of       the  young  folks' danced.   o ���������  ,. ,      ���������    A  London paper says:  A touching  to     assassinate  Emperor  Alexander     .^^ of ft li[ewas re,a(c(1 ���������.y  II. for which she was sentenced to  ��������� Rattersea in a lecture at West-  hfteen years in   Siberia,, but  at ^ ' minster'on-"Women's  life in     l-'ris-  end of seven years she escaped        to ��������� ^ ,,   Hcr .ltMlyship .ftlu, Acudin<>, Duel,  versity  and    in   exile. When   Kaleilt  was charged with his identity he admitted  it,  saying immediately  "Sa-  vinkofMias been arrested."  The police later, thought they had  captured..tSavinkpff, and so announeedi  publicly.   But it turned out that the  man held  uifder  that  name  was another and  that Savinkoff,  to whom  LaleiefY evidently had \confided     his  intention  of killing  Grand  Duke Ser-  gius,  is still safe-abroad.  Among the others captured was  Madam Ivanovskaia, a sister-in-law  of ivorolonko,' the-Russian author.  She was involvpd in the,' Nihilist plot;  America.

A fortress spells immobility and dispersion.     ^Ve   should   therefore   look  askance at it until proof is given that  it has a definite purpose to fulfill iu a  reasoned scheme of strategy.   We must  not allow ourselves to be led away by  the glamour surrounding a heroic defense.    We must look to the end and  leave panegyrics to poets.    We must,  in short, regard all fortification as an  auxiliary  and   nothing- more.    A  fortress, because it is a fortress and because it is ours, is not necessarily an  advantage and may be tbe,reverse.   If  wo gain battles we gain tbe enemy's  fortresses;  if we lose them be gains  ours, whether they are in the interior  or upon the sea.   In each case the larger the garrison the greater the disas-  ( ter.   Fortresses, and, in fact, all fortifications, have never played anything but  ' a   secondary   role   in   the   defense   of  _ states, aud no nation has ever yet been  , saved by   them.    They can  as  auxiliaries occasionally-assist an army and  . they can aid naval capital, wisely in-  j vested and wisely used, to bear splen-  j did  interest,   but they  can   never   reestablish moral superiority when once  it is, lost nor create it by the virtue at-  / Inching to its parapets if it does not  exist.

A strange family story is told in the  "Reminiscences of Mrs. Tickering." It  has to do with her sister Jane, married to Lord Andover, eldest son of the  Earl of Sulfolk:  "She   (Lady   Andover)   had   always  heen noted   for having the  most re-  markabie dreams, and one morning she  awoke feeling- nervous and uncomfortable, having dreamed that Lord Andover had gone out shooting when there  was a battue and had been shot.   This  made such an impression on her mind  that she entreated  him  not to shoot  that das-, but to stay with her, which  he at once consented to do, aud they  resumed  their   painting   and  reading.  But the day came out so fine and the  winter sun shone so brightly that my  aunt, feeling she had been selfish, at  last begged him not to lose the day for  her sake, but to go out and join tbe  others, so ho went.   After be had gone  she became so restless and uneasy that  she started to walk across the park to  the covert where thes' were shooting.  As she crossed the park she observed  one of the grooms galloping hard toward the house on her own favorite  horse, Baronet.   Strange to say, no presentiment of evil   seems  at that moment to have struck her, and she only  remarked, 'How very angry Lord Andover would be  if he could see that  man riding my liorso In such a way!'  He was riding to tho house with the  news that Lord Andover had been shot  dead by one of the keepers."  WE   NEVER   SLEEP  BUT ARE ALWAYS ON THE LO OKOUT FOR THE BEST MEATS  IN THE MARKETS.

The  Dominion     go'.ernnunt  has  been     at great     pains to obtain  samples of seed from bulk as   ottered  for sale in  various  parts of this aiul  other  provinces.     The lecturer's   figures clearly showed that the purcha������'  er of so-called cheap     seeds not only  paid    the highest  price  for what    he  got of the real article, but also   succeeded   in stocking  his   farm with     a  choice and varied  collection   of weeds  of the most .flourishing and enduring  character.

"'    -  IT  WAS A FROG.  Last evening several young men  and maidens meti at an appointed  spot paired off and proceeded for a  "'walk in the direction of Victoria.  They were, of course, followed, at a  proper distance, by a chaperone. Each  young man selected his partner and  one was fortunate enough lo have  two fall to his lot. All proceeded merrily, and the chaperone behaved herself to perfection:, so the young ones  say.  After getting down somewhere near-  Victoria, the party prepared to return home. They returned by way  of the waggon road and as they near-  ed the gates of the noble city of Ladysmith, the young gentleman who  had charge of the two fair damsels,  was suddenly grasped by each arm,  and live awe-struck voice of thc two  maidens whispered, "Hush!"

The attitude of mind  ���������typified in the song which says, 'We've got the ships, we've got the men,  we've got the money, too,' is somewhat superficial, and docs not pause  to consider how it is we've go't the  ships and  the men.  Britishnaval ollicers and bluejackets are always prepared to fulfil  their side of the bargain with the ut-  35 and 50 cents, j'most,gallantry, but under the con-  flit, ons of modern war their personal  bravery and skill can avail little unless provided with efficient weapons,  with fast and well-armoured ships,  hut these things cost money, a K"cat.  deal of money, and the Treasury is  always     anxious to     economise.  Therefore when there, has been no immediate prospect of war, naval expenses have been pared down.
