BRITAIN AND RUSSIA.

BRITAIN AND RUSSIA. The unexpected seems to happen quite as often in the history of nations as it does in the experience of individuals. For instance, who would have believed four or five years ago that the year 1907 would produce an entente between Britain and Russia, and that, too, after Russia had been at war with the only ally that Britain has had within the last fifty years ? But, however improbable such an understanding may have appeared, it is more than less welcome as a very real and definite contri- bution to the world's peace. The appre- hension that Russia might at some time attempt an invasion of India on the North- west frontier has cost Britain many millions, and not only has the direct expenditure been large, but the supposed designs of Russia upon India have been one of the most conspicuous of those causes of un- easiness which tend to increase armaments all round. The natural sequel to an entente between Britain and Russia seems to be a reconciliation between Japan and Russia. Such a rapprochement would add one more to the many illustrations of the folly of war. But we need not go very far back in the history of the world to find nations which *re very good friends in spite of the fact that a few years ago they were at war.
