Hoogs, FRIDAY AUGUST Manager. 1904 The St. Louis Fair is all and more than it was planned to be, and is not only a great enterprise but a most interesting spectacle. The statement that it had not been properly advertised has little weight In view of the large number of influential editors who have placed upon It the seal of journ ilistic approval. The only regret is that every man and woman, every boy and girl in the country will not be able to gaze upon its wonders. Not only to those who stay at home but to such as actually visit St. Louis the Forest City Series of World's Fair Art Portfolios will constitute a highly prized posses sion. As our readers are well aware, this magnificent pictorial and descrip tivc history of the event is now being supplied at the merely, nominal ten cents for each portfolio. There are 30 parts in all and they contai views, which are the cream of the collection secured by the official photo grapher, with all the descriptions are written by Walter B. Stevens, the offi cial Secretary of the Exposition. The Forest City series is the only collec tion of Exposition views which has the approval of the World's Fair authou ties. It constitutes an instructive, interesting and almost inspiring posses sion for the home, and that it is highly appreciated is shown by the fact that the distribution is increasing each week among our readers. 0:0 piFO Classified Ads in Star.

Sloilet Powders Notice 01' ltcniovnl Good Luck For Midway It la Guaranteed To Remove ths Odor of Perspiration It Relieves ING AND IS THE The Japanese-Russian war seemly likely to convert the mid-Pacific atoll of Midway from a pair of remote patches of sand into the dignity of a regular calling place for ocean steam- -tr ers. Aireauy tne importance 01 this place as a port of call has been de- ECZEMA, PRICKLY HEAT, munsiraicti in uie case or tne a. uaeiic, and it is likely that during the war the vessels operating from San Francisco to the Orient will be directed, to call at Midway on all outward trips. The S. S. Mongolia will no doubt call at Midway on her present trip. The operations of the Vladivostok commerce destroyers has caused great trepidation on the part of steamship '. owners and evidently no chances will, in future, be taken of the liners being held up. Midway could well be established as a port of call for all steam vessels crossing the Pacific to Honolulu and San Francisco. To stop at that place would require but a few hours' delay. The vessels could stop off the islands, signal, and if no orders were waiting for them, could proceed. The advan tage of such an arrangement would be to enable the agents to keep closer track of their vessels and estimate the time when the boats would be apt to reach either Honolulu or okohama. When the cable station was established on Midway the captains of the Toyo Kisen Kaisha fleet suggested to the general manager of the company that Midway be established as a calling place for the fleet in order that the agents could be advised regarding the trip across the Pacific. For some reason this change was not inaugurated. The war, however, may now be the cause of that innovation being introduced. Certainly the people at Mid way will be delighted over such change. The prospects of having mail ves sels call there at intervals of eight to ten days is cause for satisfaction to them. Nearly fifty years ago the Pacific Alail S. S. Company selected Midway as a site for a coaling station for the vessels of its fleet. The old side-wheelers in those days did not have sufficient coal capacity, it was thought, to enable them to make the voyage across the Pacific. Midway was not used for long as a coaling place however by the mail boats. It would seem strange now if, after such a long time, it should again be decided to have the vessels call at Midway, not because of any deficiency in modern invention, but rather be cause of the remarkable advance of science shown in the completion of an ocean cable at Midway which enables the world to be advised of the move ments of the ocean liners.

The heav iest guns ever used in attack and the heaviest ever used in defense, have been brought into requisition at Port Arthur, and the awful firing and de struction must have created a spectacle of terror and grandeur that will never be forgotten by those who survive. The strength of possible land at tack, say some military experts, has increased more than the strength of fortresses, so that there are guns in existence which when once planted at proper range are capable of demolishing the best forts ever constructed. Planting their enormous siege guns at the nroDer rjoint. runs Kn Mr ti.t their tremendous weight makes mounting them a respectable problem in transportation and engineering, often by stealthy work at nieht and alwavs It is an easy matter to t,.n thnt tw under constant necessity of military wariness and defense, the Japanese on conve"t'"n in Lexington, Kentucky was ti.i.iiui my. j iiere was a riot and the police had to olub a num ber of people.

I . . - ... . . ....ui.j naming me stage or give and take with which an. attempt to reduce Port Arthur must necessarily close, must have found themselves in the midst of such uproar and destruction as seem to belong properly to nature's great convulsions and not to the enterprises of man. Russian guns and defenses as planned since the White Bear took Port Ar thur from China, occupied a chain of heights around the town. Galleries of masonry with loopholed walls from which a destructive fire can be sent by men in comparative safety, are below huge ordnance so placed as to direct the fire downward. Large vaults of masonry for the protection of men and guns were planned and constructed, and intervening spaces protected by all sorts of trenches and other obstacles, and all arranged so that enemies talc ing one position may Joe, as nearly as military art can make them, certain of destruction or of being driven out again and again. Undoubtedly the long Japanese delay in making a final heavy assault has been due to the difficulty of the work of planting their husre slesr The plan of attack as understood the world over has been to place a far distant circle of the heaviest batteries, with which finally to break down the largest forts. After that the closer attack, on positions worse than terrible Nanshan. Japanese success in this task will place all their other achieve. ments of the war in the shade and make the world wonder whether theVe is such a thing as an impregnable fortress.
