The czar's soldi era in China, terrible
bloodshed would have re-ulted at many

soldiers entered the city. Of their
heroic effo. ts in behalf of the foreign
ers Mrs. Charles Denby, Jr., wife of the
son of the ox-minister to China, writes
fr.ni Tientsin: "Enormous fires in the
native city were started and the Loxers
begun ti'.cir attack on the settlement;
bo we were all aroused at 4 o'clock,
and every one who lived in the extra
concession went either to friends on
the Victoria road or to the. town hall.
As it happened, Mrs. von Hannekin
had asked us to come to her in case
of alarm, so we escaped to the town
hall. Thre were perhaps 100 people

Itusians fought and suffered! I cannot
describe their courage. For three days
they lay in the open, exposed to a ter

trenches, so the Russians could not
afford to waste ammunition.

Miss Tillle Fahr of San Francisco,

pays a high tribute to Jim Watts. In
her diary of June 19 she says:
"They are bombarding us heavier to
day than heretofore. Early this morn

peeping through the shutter slats.
Four bullets pierced the shutters, but
did not strike me. I rus-hed to the
commanding officer and told him that
the bullets must have como from a
Chinaman concealed in a tree flanking
the window. Calling four Cossacks, we
went to the tree, and sure enough
shook out a Chinaman, whose first
inquiry was whether he had killed the
lady. I told him I was very much alive.
My would-be assassin was immediately
tried and shot. All else may
be dead, but heroism still lives. Jim
Watts rides to Taku to bring us re

may ride into the very jaws of death.
It is a raot perilous undertaking, but
brave Jim Watts gladly, gallantly risks
Iiis life. I myself heard him offor it.
'Some one must go to Taku,' s-aid the
commanding officer. 'It may mean the
lives of women and children it may
mean d?ath to the rider. Who will
go?' 'I know the roads, every inch of
of them; let me go,' said a voice. Then
Jim Watts stepped forward. 'I shall
go; it is right. I am the older brother.'
We saw him mount his horse, we
heard the thuds of the hoofs beat more
faintly and die. Hope took no new
lease of life from this. Before re-enforcements
could reach us it would be
too late, granting that brave Jim Watts

THE DOUCLAS SHOE.
The best advertised and consequent
ly the best known shoe in the world
today is undoubtedly made by the W.
L. Douglas Shoe Co., of Brockton,
Mass. The one idea ct this company
has always been to sell a shoe for
$3.50 which equals in every way the $5
shoes of any other concern. They are
able to do this on account of there be
ing no middle man's profit, as the
goods are sold direct from the factory
to the wearer. In J0 of the principe
cities of the country they have their
own retail stores. The guods are made
In all sizes an J widths, and few shoes
equal them for style and durability.
The factory at Brockton employs
over 1,100 hands, and all labor trou
bles are settled by the state board of
arbitration. Nothing but union labor
Is employed, and pay about the best
average wages of any shoe workers in
the United State:;. The factory pay
roll amounts to $17,433 per week. This
company makes shoes for men only,
and it is their proud boast that over
one million men wear them. Denver

on rental farms, barely making
enough to get along, with no great
prospect ahead of owning their
own h-.iine.s when within a few
hour.-' jn'jrney is a land of plenty
N e b V ask a where all kinds of
grain and fruit can le raked with
the 'east amount of labor: where
cattle ?nd hogs fed on corn bring a
handsome profit; where the climate

Think of this, and if you want
information about the country send
to ir.e for "The Corn Belt," a
beautifullv illustrated monthly
paper that tells all about Nebraska,
and also for "The West Nebraska
Grazing Country," an interesting
illustrated booklet containing a
large sectional map of Nebraska,
On the first and third Tuesdays
of each month during the balance
of this year ciuap excursion
tickets will be sold over our road
to Nebraska, so that people may go
and see for themselves. Ask your
ticket agent about this.
