every important station on the gulf.
Eight Japanese cruisers sounded the en
trance to the harbor of Wei-Hai-Wei
three hours Saturday, then went across
to Port Arthur, where they made obser
vations without getting within range of
the guns. The Japanese fleet returned
to Wei-Hai-Wei Monday in single line.
When almost within range the fleet sep
arated and hovered around the harbor
entrance. The Fort fired a few shots,
but the Japanese did not reply, and con
tinued making observations until Count
, Ilos' flagship, the steel cruiser Hashi
date, fired one gun, whereupon the fleet
reformed and steamed away in the di
rection of Taku. The Tein-Tsin dispatch
adds a Chinaman arrested there upon
suspicion of being a Japanese spy was
tortured until he admitted the truth of
the charge. He is to be executed. The
same dispatch says four spies have been
arrested at Port Arthur for cutting sub
marine wires connected with torpedoes.
It is also stated that the fire which oc
curred at Tein Tsin Thursday was of in

London, Oct. 11. A Tein-Tsin dis

armed. The Chinese government has

for quick-firing guns, and the arms are
expected to arrive daily. The Japaneese
are watching the coast for the' arrival of
arms. It is rumored at Tein-Tsin iron
clad warships have been purchased
from Austria and the United States.

Animals for Cavalry Service Obtained '
.The government has. been picking up
horses for the cavalry and artillery
service very cheap in Washington and
Oregon this summer. The average
price paid was seventy-five, dollars for
each animal, which, is uncommonly low
when the style of animal required for'
the army is considered. A government
purchasing- agent says: "We inspected
recently at The Dalles, Pendleton,
Walla Walla, Ellensburgb. and North
Yakima, and at each place found about
one hundred awaiting examination. I
selected such as met the requirements,
which are that they must be bays and
grays, fifteen hands high and upward,
and from four to eight years old.
These were passed upon by the gov
ernment officials, and, if found satis
factory, were accepted.. They were
purchased at a very low price, as the
sellers had but little money, and were
anxious to dispose of their stock. The
animals bought are of fine class, and
especially suited for cavalry purposes.
The lowness of the cost of horses this
year may be- attributed to the small
demand, which is insignificant when
compared with the supply. Never be--fore
during the fifteen years or so that
I have been inspecting horses for the
government have I seen times so dull
in the stock regions, or the stock deal
ers so anxious to sell their animals at a
small price. The small demand is, of
course, due to the supplanting of horse
cars by electric and cable railways, the
shutting down of logging1 camps and
lumber industries on Puget sound, and
the general dullness of trade. In Port
land cars which would require thirty
five hundred horses are operated by
cable and electricity. Then the freight
cars operated on these steel railways
have shut out trucks and delivery
wagons on which a large number of
horses were used."
SONGS OF THE BATTLEFIELD.
What Peculiar Associations Produce
These Powerful Auxiliaries.
Association, which has so large a
share in the operations of the human
mind, often contributes much to the
effect of music, says Laura A. Smith in
Lippincott's. Some airs possessing no
intrinsic merit owe their influence on
the destinies of nations almost entirely
to this principle. The making of a
national song is one of the things to
be attributed to happy accident; it can
not be accomplished by taking thought
or by any amount of burning of the
midnight oil. Monarchs have no power
to command it, and often the greatest
poets and musicians are most in
capable of producing a truly national
hymn. No, the great popular lyrics of
the world have been the result of acci
dent and the vent-hole of fiery feeling
long confined. What but accident
caused the song of '"My Maryland" to
prove the chant to which thousands of
the soldiers of the confederacy kept
time during 1881-65? And could any
thing be more fitly credited to' chance
than the extraordinary popularity of
the "Malbrough's s'en va-t-en guerre,"
which was due to the fact of a orovin
cial nurse having lulled to rest the lit
tle dauphin, the son of Louis XVI.,
with this arf ? Had he not written his
one undj-iri lyric, the "Marseillaise,"
probably nought de Lisle had never
been heard of. And who speak of Max
Schneckenburger when' they talk of
"Die Wacht am Rhein?" Verily, the
making of a war song is a deed of
arms, not a mere effort of the pen.
OUR LEGS TO VANISH.
In the Coarse of Another One Thousand
. Years Men May Cease Walking.
Dr. Emil Young, professor of physi
ology at the University of Geneva, is
in great distress concerning the future
of our legs. He suggests, in an essay
in the Semaine Litteraire, says the
Westminister Gazette, that in the course
of one thousand years the human race
may have lost the necessity of the use
of legs, and retain those members of
the body solely as ornamental survivals.
Men refuse more and more to walk,
though walking is the wholesomest of
physical exercises. Steam, electricity,
the rope railways, tricycles, and
bicycles have changed the whole
aspect of Swiss touring, as he says, in
his own generation. 'Everybody
seems anxious to get everywhere any
way except by the use of his legs." In
another generation, he supposes, our
traveling balloons will bang outside
our windows, or our electrical coaches
stand outside our doors. They will be
produced so cheaply that every man
will have his own chariot. Hence our
legs '- will become superfluous, then
they will be crippled,- and shrunk to
hideously small dimensions, until at
last they will finally disappear. Our
arms, on the contrary, will correspond
ingly . strengthen and lengthen.
"While our legs remain," says Dr.
Young, "let us march all we can."
It Is said of Alboni that she "warbled
like a bird all day long." She used to
sit in her garden - and sing as she
worked at lace making or some other
feminine occupation, and the- rent of
the house adjoining' her villa was
raised a thousand francs because of the
free musical entertainments thus fur
nished. In regard to her great size,
her body became so unwieldly in her
last years tact rbe rose with -difficulty
from her chair, 'cud usually had to be
helped to rise. The great singer was
so fond of the homely art of darning
stockings that it was said she "would
