St. Petersburg, By Cable.-While
Emperor Nicholas, whose word is fin

cution of the war, and the government
maintains its ability to continue the
conflict. it can be authoritatively
stated that powerful influences, in
cluding several of the Emperor's own
ministers, are now strongly urging
that the time has come to indicate
to Japan Russia's desire for peace up
on a reasonable basis. Should Japan
then attempt to impose too onerous
conditions, these influences argue that
in view of the universal wish to see
the bloody conflict ended, Russia's
position will be strengthened abroad
by the alienation of sympathy from
Japan, and the situation improved at
home when the nation is made to un
derstand that the Emperor's pacific
proposals have been met with im
possible terms. The Minister of War

sake of argument, she succeeded in
finally forcing a humiliating peace, it
would not be more than an armed
truce. Russia is too big and power
ful to retire permanently from the
field. The clouds at home eventually
will roll away. With the army and
navy reorganized, in live, ten or fifteen
years, there vill come inevitably our
revenge. No permanent peace is pos

Well Groomed Hair.
The essential thing is not so mth

tht you should know how to achieve
Every woman whtse features are not
disfigured, whose skin is clear and
whose blood is not congenitally thin,.
en achieve for herself a fair amount
of good looks. Good grooming is the t:
method, and good grooming just means
making the most of one's personal ap- g,
pearance. It means keeping the hair t:
glossy and fluffy, the skin free fr-om a
blemish or roughness, the hands welt ti
manicured and the teeth in perfect a
condition. It is as important to culti
'rate one's self as it is to cultivate one's
garden or one's business.
And really nothing contributes to or
takes from a woman's charm of ap
pearance as the condition and dressing? t
of her hair. Untidy hair, neglected
hair. inbecomingly arranged hair will
destroy the beauty of features or color.
