Hailstones. i
The tremendous downfall of what are
called hailstones across the northern
part of the county, last Saturday even
ing, and the reported size of some of
them—walnuts and hen-eggs—makes one
Wonder how they are formed. The
theory °' the formation of the ordinary
hailstone, or small ball of snow, is that
a cloud or mass ef vapor rises into what
is called the snow region of the atmos
phere and is there suddenly congealed
and falls to the earth; but when the
stones are "as large as walnuts" and
comprised of solid ice, that theory wil'
not do, and the other one is that the
falling rain drops are caught in the
gyrations of a cyclone, carried up into
freezing zone and frozen into hail, ,
then dropped into the rain belt or zone,
and then back again—the alternate
freezing and dropping causing them to ,
receive additional coats of ice, and thus
enlarge nntil they are thrown outside
the gyrations of the cyclone and fall
to the earth.
All this is gness work, however, and
is on the par with our theories regarding
earth-quakes and other things, about
which we really know nothing.
A MEETING of the borough members
of the County Committee and the City
Committee was held in Republican
headquarters, over Eyth's stationary
store, Monday evening, to arrange for
political work dnring the coming cam
paign. Meetings of all the Ward Com
mittees were called for this (Thursday)
evening in Headquarters. All Repub
licans are urged to attend. It should
be conclusively proven this fall that
Butler is a Republican town.
In the several engagements of last
week the Japs were generally success
ful; driving the Russians from their
positions near Haicheng, and advanc
ing their own lines toward Liao Yang,
the railroad town that has been the base
of the Russians for some time.
The last reported engagement was at
Au-shan-chan, from ten to twenty
miles north of Haicheng, which wat
evacuated by the Russians.
At the end of the week one division
of Kuroki's army was threatening Muk
den and another Liao Yang, while the
third seemed to have joined the armies
of Nodzu and Oku, near Hai Cheng.
The Russians were retreating and
eon centra ting—fighting for time and
reinforcements —but the climax was ex
pected to come any day.
army is said to number
•bout 120,000 men, while the different
Jap armies contain nearly double that
number: and besides this one division
ofKuroki s army was said to be in po

the Russians should they attempt to
change their base to Mukden or Har
Field artillery is playing a very im
portant part in this war. each army has
about 800 pieces but the Japs are the
beet marksmen.
A Jap army is said to have landed up
the Liao river, to the west of the Rus
sian position, and if Kuroki has headed
them off to the north, as reported, then
Kuropatkin must risk all in a general
engagement, for he is practically sur
On Monday a general advance of all
the Jap armies was reported, the inten
tion being to attack all the Russian po
sitions from Liao Yang to Mukden,
simultaneously; and on Tuesday the
Russians were again reported aB retreat
ing to Mukden, to eave themselves from
Kuroki's flanking movement.
At Port Arthur, the Japs, according
to reports from Tokio had penetrated
to the third line of the Russian defenses
but yesterday's papers reported another
repulse for them, Monday night.
The prize court at Vladivostok, after
due investigation,finds that the British
steamship Knight Commander, which
was sunk by Russian cruisers, was a
lawful prize, her cargo being wholly
contraband. The cargo consisted chief
ly of railway materials, which the ves
sel's papers showed to have been con
signed through a Japanese port to
Chemulpo, with the manifest purpose
of using it in the construction of the
Japanese military railroad from Seoul to
the Yalu river.
Y. P. C. U. Convention.
The annual Presbyterial convention
of the Young Peoples' Christian Union
of the United Presbyterian church, was
held last Wednesday and Thursday in
the historic old Harmony church, near
Harrisville. Most of the delegates ar
rived Wednesday afternoon and enjoy
ed a hay ride from Carter station to the
church where, after enrollment, lunch
was served. In the evening Rev. J. A.
C. McQuistion, of Baldwin, spoke on
Giving and Church Finances and Rev.
Purvis, of Grove City, on the Influence
of the Individual on the Life of the
World. Thursday morning the reports
of the committees and the correspond
ing secretaries were received. Mrs.
Bracken, of Harrisville, conducted a
meeting >f the Juuiors and Mrs. R. E.
English, of Grove City, spoke on Jun
ior work. Rev. J. H. Breaden, of West
Bunbury, spoke powerfully on the liq
uor question and the general sentiment
of the convention was in favor of refus
ing all licenses.
Dinner was served in the Sabbath -
school room. In the afternoon S. S.
Atwell spoke, his subject being "Sum
ming Up the Evidence." The closing
address was the convention's feature.
It was delivered by Rev. C. R. Watson,
secretary of the Church Board of For
eign Missions. Rev. Watson, a young
man, was the son of a missionary and
was born in Egypt and educated in this
country, graduating from the Alleghe
ny Seminary with Rev. A. R. Robinson.
Rev. Watson recently returned from an
inspection of the church mission fields
in Egypt and India and his remarks
were very interesting. The convention
voted all its funds to the mission work.
The following officers were elected:
President, Rolla H. McQuistion. Butler;
vice presidents, Eathan McMichael,
Euclid, and Frank Houston, Eau Claire;
Treasurer, Miss Nettie Dougan, Harris
ville, Secretary, Ruth Braham, Harris
ville; Junior Secretary, Mrs. R. E. Eng

The High Privilege of tin-
(John Brisben Walker in the Cosmopol
When American citizenship shall
have reached its highest development,
the duty of voting will no longer be a
careless, perfunctory, ill-studied and
hastily performed act.
There will be a preparatory ceremo
ny, in which the citizen will stand be
fore his fellow men and, with uplifted
hand, solemnly affirm that in exercising
the high duties devolving upon him as
a voter, he —
Has studied with diligence the issues
presented for decision;
Has made carefnl inquiry concerning
the integrity and administrative abili
ties of the candidates in nomination:
Will cast his vote without prejudice,
without personal bias, without influence
by money or promise of any personal
advantage, direct or indirect;
Will, in casting his vote, have regard
solely and entirely to the benefit of the
country at large if the vote be national,
or if local, with reference to the good of
the community.
Eventually the voter will come to
recognize that a failure to fulfil this
duty earnestly, thoroughly and with
highest integrity, should expose him to
the contempt of his fellow citizens, and
should disfranchise him from the exer
cise of the high privilege of voting—and
he will understand that corrupt voting
brings in its train wars, panics, loss of
income, and suffering in a thousand
If, after solemnly making this affirm
ation in the presence of his fellow cit
izens, the voter proceeds to the secrecy
ot the voting-booth, who doubts that he
will not, in nine cases out of ten, act
differently from the careless, thoughtles?,
ill-judging, selfish or corrupt man who
today retards by his vote the destiny of
our Republic?
Within the past twenty years, corrup
tion at the polls has increased with a
rapidity that appals those who have
read the history of the republics of
Rome and Greece. Something must be
done to rescue the average citizen from
his indifference to and ignorance of the
power contained in his vote. Men must
be educated systematically through vil
lage societies, and above all, the public
schools must take up the training of
the child to the importance of the func
tion which he will eome day exercise as
a citizen.
Penalties for bribery at the polls are
already severe. But in every town
there must be a society whose business
it is to pursue the briber and the bribed
until the doors of the penitentiary close
upon them. And the only legal excuse
for absence from the polls should be a
certificate of ill health or certified ab
sence from the county.
Hitherto we have neither educated
our schoolchildren in the duties they
will some time exercise as voters, nor
surrounded the voters themselves with
such safeguards as will elevate them to
a comprehension of the high responsi
bility entrusted to them.
And if it continues to go unchecked,
bribery at the polls will overthrow the
