Raising Russian Ships.
The Japanese seem almost as suc
cessful in raising Russian warships as
in sinking them. It is announced that
several of them have already been
raised, but they were so helplessly
wrecked as to be almost useless. As
raisers of sunken warships the Jap
anese enginec-rs are said to be the best
in the world. The best medicine in the
world for building up systems that
have been wrecked by sickness is
acknowledged by almost everybody to
be Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. It has
a toning and strength ning effect on
the mt ire system and Is so safe and
reliable that the weakest stomach can
retain it. In cases of poor appetite,
nausea, heartburn, belching, cramps,
kidney troubles dyspepsia, indigestion
or costlveness it Is unequaled. Tho;

the neck of each bottle. J
The old watch factory building on
VandrufTs island below the Watch
Tower has been repaired and fitted up.
and put In shape by the Artista Piano
Player company, incorproated here,
which recently acquired the place. The
lactory building is now almost in readi

this the company expects to do during
this week. When running ;o full capa

15u to 2tU hands, and nearly all of
these will be from the three cities. The
company, which has conducted a small
experimental factory at Battle Creek.
brought only four expert workmen
from that city, and all others will be
local men. About 12 girls are to be
employed in the factory, in the de
partment devoted to the pneuniatical
apparatus of the player.

The building is regarded by Mr.
Ruse, the general manager, as one of
the best factory buildings in the coun
try for its size, and it has been re
paired and placed in first class condi
tion. A new heating plant has been
installed, a new elevator placed in the
building, partitions erected, and an
electric system installed, -including a
motor to operate the few machines re
quired, and electric lighting through
out. A well was drilled near the fac
tory building, and water obtained at
70 feet. The water will be pumped by
steam to the fourth floor, where a large
tank is located. From here it will be
distributed throughout the building.
The first floor of the building is to be
devoted to the general office and ma
chine room, while on second floor
is the assembling room, a testing room,
and Supt. Warren's office and drawing
rooms. The third floor is devoted to
the varnishing and finishing room,
while the fourth floor is to be used for
the present for store room.
It will be but a few weeks before the
company will be shipping the finished
product from the factory south of the
city. The player which is the com

the company. Mr. Warren's aim in the
construction of the Artista player was
to combine absolute efficiency with the
greatest possible simplicity. He says
that in two and a half years he has not
had a player returned on account of a
defect or faulty construction. Mr.
Warren was for 23 years identified
with the construction of self-playing in
struments, and in England was expert
in the largest automatic player fac
