Tho war between China and
Japan is still on. So far the
Japanese have all the best of
it. How long this will last,
time alone can tell.
Flushed by their numerous
victories, the Japanese are
pushing their armies into Chi
nese territory. The capture
of Fing Yang with its forts
and treasure was their first
The naval baltlo at the
mouth of tho Yalu River and
the total destruction of three
Chinese men-of-war followed
this quickly. Tho final expul
sion of tho Chinoso from Coren
and tho capture of Klew Lien
Chang left the road open to
the Japs to both Moukdon
To carry on this warfaro
Japan has (so far) enlisted ono
hundred thousand men aside
from hor rogular standing
array, and hundreds of the
bone and sinew of tho land of

A RUNAWAY STAR.
It Mows at thn Ruto of Two Hun
dred Miles a Second
Tho greatest velocity that has
been recogu ized among t no stars, says
All the Year Hound, is found iu the
motion of a star known as 18!10
Orooiubridge, or tho "runaway star."
as it is sometimes ctlled, which is
believed to bo rtisuimr through space
at tho rate of 200 miles per second.
This star appears to bo moving lu a
porfectly straight Hue through tho
sky, and it may bo visiting our star
system for the fintt time, but whence
it caino or whither it is going no
ono can tell and it is a groat enigma
Its wonderful velocity cannot bo
explained, as it Is far greater than
could be produced by tho influence
of all known orbs iu tho universe,
and, on the other hand, tho com
bined attraction of all tho stars can
not stop this wanderer iu its solitary
flight through spice, until it has
rushed ou to the remoter distances,
beyond which the largebt telescopes
have never penetrated.
It has been mathematically de
monstrated that a body approach
ing the center of our system from
an infinite distauco cannot move
with a greater velocity than twenty
five miles a second, if iuthieueed by
tho attraction of tho masses iu our
universe alone, but hero wo havo
been considering a star moving with
eight times that velocity, and still,
notwithstanding tho fact that it has
tlio greatest motion known among
tho stars, it would require 185,000
years tor tins remarKauio star to
complete an entire circuit around
