Next to the growth of the I'nltec
States, tlx1 expansion of the Russian
empire Is the most potentially signifi
cant fact in contemporary history.
Considerable excitement was caused
in various foreign offices recently by
the report that Russia had decided to
regard Manchuria as part of the em
pire. Yet -it is well known that Rus
sian influence has been dominant in
Manchuria since 3SH8, and that little
more Is needed to make it Russian ter
ritory then the official acknowledg
ment that China no longer exercises
authority there. Russia can afford to
wait for this, as It already enjoys prac
tically all the advantages of posses
sion, including access to the ice-free,
ports of the Yellow Sea. It is large
ly because Russian statesmen know
how to wait for the opportune moment
that the empire is so large to-day, and
that Its encroachment on the territory
of other nations interests foreign min
isters so deeply. For nearly six cen
turies, ever since the empire was noth
ing more than Moscow with a few
hundred square miles round about,
Russia has been expanding. For two
centuries expansion has gone on with
a definite and consistent policy. It
was Peter the Great who secured the
territory on which St Petersburg now
stands. In order that he might have
access to tne open sea. Access to tne
Baltic, and to the North Pacific
through Siberian ports, has not con
tented his successors. Through Man
churia they have reached the Yellow
Sea, and are drifting southward to
ward the Mediterranean and the Per
sian Gulf with a steadiness which sug
gests the irresistible movement of the
glacier. The disturbing facts In Eu
ropean politics are chiefly attributable
to Russian aspirations; the control of
the Balkan states, in order to secure
access by Its navy to the Medlter
nanean, and the domination of Persia
so effectually as to secure a highway
from Its own frontier to the Persian
Gulf for commercial and military pur
poses. These Imperial projects conflict
with the Interests of Great Britain,
Austria, Italy and Germany. They are
especially injurious to Great Britain,
since in both cases they admit a pos
slble future enemy to points adjacent
to the way to India. The Russian
movement toward the Persian Gulf, in
particular, is so seriously regarded
In London that the- government has
formally declared In Parliament that
the establishment of a naval station
In those waters would be regarded as
a menace to liriush interests, and
would be resisted.

that It fills the bill. So large are the
yields of this variety under ordinary
culture, expert growers claim that It
has no equal. The tubers are uniform
in slse, with comparatively few very
small specimens, and the quality Is of
the very beet. In season the variety
Is medium to late. T'nfortunately, re
sults are not all that can be desired
on heavy soils or clay, but on sandy
or loemy soils It has no equal. Id
form the Uncle flam Is oval, pure
white, with russet skin and shallow
eyes near the surface. Continued
tests may prove that the variety will
do better on heavy soils after the first
lesson, which Is frequently the case
with' sorts that have Wn grown from
the beginning In lighter soils. At all
events, the variety has too uiany good
points to throw It aside for culture on
heavy soils after a single season of

The Vue of Sweat Pade.
The use of sweat pads under some

cially when horses have started work

of the principal objections to the sweat
Md Is that it tends to become soggy.
and cons'-quently Increases the friction

hmilder. It sometimes happens mat
the use J the pad one can fit a col-
nr that could otherwise not be worn.
lu this Instance the price of a collar
ninv be Muted. By the use of the pad
the cVraft Is often thrown on the outer
edge of the shoulders, while it should
be as cli se In as possible. When an
animal gels a sore sot on some p:irt
of his shoulder It Is sometimes possible
to cut a hole in the pad and thus re
lieve the pressure on this place until it
becom li.-fll.d. The main ihli:g Is to
have a collar fit the shoulder well.
Where this Is the case there is seld rm
any danger of irritation, providing the
haiiies are properly fitted to the collar
and pulled up tightly each time they
are put on. It never pays to work
away with a collar that Vhi not fit
