Tho Russian diplomat began

In addition to those warnings,
M. do Nolidoff sent n note to tho
Turkish Government and to tho
palaco, to which tho utmost signi
ficance is attached in diplomatic
circles. Ho pointed out in pro
ciso terms tho necessity for tho
Sultan following tho advico of the
powers nnd acting in complete
agreemout with their plans for
improving tho situation, giving
warning onco more that tho Sul

Mr. Gilleopio called attention
to a rack constructed of gas pipe
standing in tho middlo of tlio

The conductors from outsido nro
joined to thoso entering tho oper

made of it molal that melts at a

These futtts will bo an effectual
protection against destruction of
tho conductors by firo from either
