K. V. E. A.
The E. V. E. A. met at Rush-
ville last Saturday to visit with
Rushville people and enjoy their
generous hospitality. It was our
good fortune to visit at the home
of Judge Wood and we feel sure
that no other editor and his wife
could have fared so well. The
meeting was attended by nearly
every editor and his wife in the
A magnificent banquet was giv
en in the opera house in the eve
ning by Rushville citizens. Sev
eral after dinner speakers dis
tinguished themselves , among
whom , we might mention Ross
Hammond , Judge Wood and Judge
Patterson as having struck nearest
the editors' hearts , while Senator
; Bresee talked so nice to the ladies
I that they forgot about his bald
! head. Next morning we boarded
the train for Hot Springs , escorted
j by our worthy friend Jacob H.
Gable , traveling agent of the C. &
N. W. The plunge bath caught
nearly everybody , some two and
j three times a day.
\ Newport was chosen as the next
j . place of meeting. C. L. Mayes ,
editor RushviHe Standard , was
[ elected president ; Otto Mutz , of
the Western Ranclwr , vice presi
dent , and C. P. Wiltse , of the
Newport Republican , secretary-
The recent victories of the Japa
nese proves beyond a doubt their
military supremacy in the East.
Not only military supremacy is
obtained but a still greater victory
which is not lauded as it deserves ,
the partial conquest over diseases
incidental to all military cam
paigns. Modern history furnishes
no paralell. Nearly all wars of
modern times have shown a great
er mortality through disease than
from the actual clash of arms. It
remained for the "little brown
men" to demonstrate that even
war can be improved and that the
price of victory can be lessened ,
notwithstanding Gen. Sherman's
dictum that "war is hell. "
This victory of medical science
will live in history when the battle
won laurels have faded into obliv
ion. All the civilized governments
of the world are keenly interested
in this war and its lessons. On
land and sea the military naval ex
perts are watching every move and
follow out results. Immense sums
of money are spent by each nation
in these investigations. There
seems to be no lack of authority
IH the expenditures , for up to date
the authority is not questioned.
The dictum of Napoleon is not
always true , viz : "That God is al
ways on the side of the heaviest
battalions. " There is a greater
and subtler strength than this in
the spirit of the opposing battal
ions. Other things being equal ,
the troops animated by a love of
country , will man for man outfight
troops forced into the ranks. That
the Japanese soldiers are patriotic
in the highest sense of the word , is
proven by their victories on land
and sea ; that the lack of patriot
ism is true of the Russian soldiers
is proven by the action of the home
government in all its affairs for
hundreds of years.
We citizens of America have a
grand object lesson in the present
war. This is that the highest cul
ture in the arts of war and of
peace , can be obtained only by a
people who have faith in each oth
er and in their government. Let
that faith be lessened , and in the
proportion that the rights and lib
erty of the people have been elimi
nated by a corrupt or tyrannical
government , then there is retro
gression and failure.

In bachelor's camp today :
When from a mother's loving care
Some choose to live this way ?
Perhaps it was a sister's hand
That did that work at home ;
Ho\v vain it is of any man
To choose to live alone.

They're not sewed on at all ;

For we've ' kept bachelor's hall ,
A rusted nail , a piece of string ,
Or anything at all ;
Will answer just as well , you see ,
When keeping bachelor's hall.

A clean plate , we've each dav :

Next day the other way.
By changing sides each day you see }
There are no dishes washed at all :

Who is keeping bachelor's ball.
