Army is Following.
There was a dearth of war uows
iioni ilio Orient Tuesday. It is admitted
by I ho Russian war olliee at St. '
Petersburg that no telegrams what- '
ever wcro roceived from General Knropatkiu
bearing Tuesday's date, the
last message to the emperor from the
general Lcmg date-.l Monday, Sept em |
i)er 3, and briefly telling that the army J
was advancing northward; that it
had extricated it sell l'rom a dftttgerous
position, and that there was constant
cannonaJing of the rear guard. L'p 'o
Tuesday night the situation may i>o
summed up as follows:
Tlio Russian forces are pushing on
to Mukden, greatly impeded !>y heavy ,
roads and Hoods, conducting an orderly
retreat, and followed step by .stop
by :ho Japanese. Details of the ilgtit- i
ing and of the exact position of Ui<i
opposing armies are lacking.
Tho report that. Kuropatkin's rear
guard 'ias been annihilated and that 1
the Russian forces are hi danger of
being surrounded is denied by tno
Russian general staff. The Russian
war office is entirely eonlldent that J
the retreat is slowly but surely being |
effected. From Tokio conies the otlicial
report that the hulk <>f tho Russian
forces Is still at. Yentai.
Tho Japanese field marshal in an
extended report of the tinhting Sunday.
September 4, says that the Russians
burned all the railroad bridges
over the Tait.se river, and predicts
that while the Japanese list, of casualties
is not jet. completed .the losses
will prove heavy.
The heads of Kuropatkin's long
commissary trains have ^ massed
through Mukden and aro continuing
northward.
The attack <>n I'ort Arthur continues.

Pains, ach^s and rheumatism
come from excess

Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidneypoisoned
blood through veins and arteries.
