An Anti-Sea-Sick Vessel.
Lieut. Turc, of the French navy, has
after much study devised a plan for
a ship the pasengers on which will,
as he imagines, be proof against sea
sicknesses. He has caught the idea
from the motion of ? swing. As a
general rule, vessels are only set roll
ing from ten to fifteen seconds at a
time, and as his would have a regular
swing of twenty-two seconds, he cal
culates that the effect of the waves
would thus be counteracted. M. Turc's
model ship would be of about G.000
tons burden, and would sail at a
speed of nineteen knots. All the
cabins would be well out of the watef,

REPORT IS WITHHELD
The Full Account of the japanese
Victory Not Given Out
RUSSIAN PUBLIC IN IGNORANCE
Official Explanation is That Unnec
essary Alarm on the Enemy's Au
thority is to be Avoided.
St. Petersburg, Dy Cable-Up to
Sunday night, the Japanese report of
the loss of three Russian ships at Port
Arthur has not been published here,
though the authorities have alloAved
to be printed a statement that the
squadron had made a sortie, and also
the news of the loss of Japanese tor
pedo boat destroyers. Some of the
papers have even commented with
satisfaction on tho prospect of a
fight in tho open sea, where the mer
its cf the two fleets would be fairly
An official explanation of the sup
pression of the Japanese report is that
the admiralty is unwilling to unnec
sarily alarm the public by the publi
cation of such statements entirely on
the authority of the enemy and in
the absence of definite advices from
the commander at Port Arthur.
The officials do not attempt to dis
guise the seriousness of and the far
reaching consequences which might
result from, the loss of three of the
Port Arthur warships,; but they pro
fess to be more inclined to believe that
Lhe vessels were lost in open fight,
rather than tho result of a torpedo
attack. Should this be the case, they
say, the Japanese could not have es
caped without material loss and thc
crippling of one or two of their bat
tleships-enough to assure the com
mand of thc sea to the Baltic squad

Pobieda joined the others.
"All the shins then advanced, en
deavoring to dispose of the miues laid
by the Japanese, but they were hin
dered by two Japanese torpedo boat
destroyers which had been guarding
the mouth of the harbor.
"At 3 p. m. the Japanese boats ex
changed shots with seven Russian de
stroyers which were covering the clear

cruisers was set on fire, and retired

"During the night eight separate at
tacks were delivered, lasting until

"In one of these assaults, the Chira

UTILIZING THE SUN'S RAYS.
Cheap Fuel Used by Residents of
The residents of Southern Califor
nia have gene into partnership with
the sun. There the sun is more plen
tiful than coal, and so they put the
former to work, utilizing the heat
rays for many purposes, one of which
is known as the "solar water heater."
By the plan they have adopted they
make the sun heat the water in the
kitchens and bathrooms in the houses
and for other domestic purposes. In
California and other states where the
sun may be depended on the item of
fuel is entirely eliminated, and how
ever cheap fuel may be, no fuel is
cheaper than the sun.
The domestic arrangement for keep
ing water hot at all hours of the day
or night is effected by inserting in the
roof a solar heater, consisting of a
number of mirrors reflecting the sun's
rays, so that the heat is concentrated
upon the water in metallic troughs,
which absorb the heat rays and soon
bring the water to a nearly boiling

A resolution demanding a division of
the school fund between the races on
the basis of taxation was killed by an
overwhelming vote, the Democracy of
North Carolina thus pla-lng itself on
record as offering the negro equal fa
cilities with the Caucasian.
The platform adopted, after brief
reference to the settling of the race
problem by th<" passage of the consti
tutional amenament, has this to say
of the South Dakota bond suit:
"The Democratic party of 1904 ap
proves the settlement made in 1879 and
will oppose any and all attempts from
any quarter to set aside the settle
ment then made. It will abide the
mandates of the courts, but it will not
consent to reopen the settlement that
was alike creditable to the State and
fair to the holders of its securities."
It then condemns the President "for
his surrender to trust influences and
for his failure to enforce the law
against monopolies and monopolists.
Congress appropriated $500,000 to em
ploy special counsel to enforce the laws
against trusts. In 12 months the Pres
ident, the platform states, expended for
such purposes only one-twentieth of
that sum. "In the midst of crime oom-'
milted by these wrong-doers," it con- j
tinues, 'he will not stop the violation
of statutes enacted for the protection
of the people, nor punish the criminals
who plunder them, although his atten
tion was called to the manner in which
! the perpetrators might be punished by
? recent decisions of the Supreme Court.
! The present tariff law is denounced,

Mr. Robert B. Glenn, just nominated
by the Democrats for Governor o)

Well Worth Seeing.
One of the most interesting exhibits
among thc manv of all kinds at the Louis
iana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis is
that of the Winchester Repeating Arms
Company, of New Haven, Conn., manu
facturers of repeating rifles and shotguns
and all kinds of ammunition. The exhibit
was in readiness and was opened on the
first, day of thc fair, a fact that clearly
illustrates the enterprise and up-to-date
methods of the company behind it. It is
the aim of thc * Winchester Repeating
Arny? Company to show at their exhibit
the high development which they have,
reached in the making of guns and ammu
nition, and one needs only to see the ex
hibit to realize how near to perfection
that development has come. There can
be seen the new automatic repeating rifle,
all kinds of shotguns, the modern smoke
less powder shotgun shells and rifle car-'
tridges; in faci everything that can interest
the devotees of hunting and trap and lat*
get shooting. Don't fail to see the exhibit
at Hie Mamu'tcturers and Fish and Game
Buildings, lt's well worth your while.

Suggestions bv Dr, Hartman-How
to Combat the Nervous Depression
Incident to Warm Weather.
Nervousness Is very common among
women. This condition is due to anaemic
nerve centers. The nerve centers are
the reservoir for nerve vitality. These
centers become bloodies.: for the wa?t oi
This condition is especially noticeable
during the warm season. Every sum
mer an army of invalids are produced as
a direct*result of weak nervous systems.
This could easily be overcome by the
use of Peruna. Peruna strikes at the
root of the trouble by corroding :he
digestion. - Perfect digestion furnishes in
creased nutrition for the nerve centres.
Perfectly digested food gives these reser
voirs of life a vitality which creates strong,
steady nerves, and in this manner fortiiies
and nourishes life.

Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.
One reason why Peruna has found per
manent use in so many homes is tba: it
contains no narcotic of any kind. Peruna
is perfectly harmless. Jt can be used any
length of time without acquiring a drug
habit. Peruna does not produce temporary
results. It is permanent in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re
moving the cause of catarrh. There, are a
multitude of homes' where Peruna has been
used of and on for twenty years. Such a
thing could not be possible if Peruna con?
tained any drugs of a narcotic nature.
