Russian Satisfaction Over Successes
on the Yalu River.
St Petersburg, April 13General
Kuropatkin's report to the emperor
of the annihilation of Japanese de
tachments on the Yalu river is a mat
ter of general satisfaction in official
circles .Again, in the view of the au
thorities, the Russian soldier has
proven his superiority in strategy and
in the manner of attack which left no
chance for a single enemy to escape
One feature of the message which is
not pleasing to the authorities is the
action of the Koreans in revealing to
the Japanese the presence of the Rus
sians at Yongampho, and the belief
prevails, that the Koreans are not so
unfriendlv to the Japanese as has been
announced Incidents such as that at
Yongampho indicate that the view

Rev. E. C. Clemens, presiding elder
for the Methodist church of this dis
trict, and living at Duluth, has been
created a member of the Chippewa
tribe of Indians, according to the
Pioneer Press. His district includes
the Vermillion country and he has
labored among the Indians for jears.
The ceremony of adoption was held
at Wake-em-up bay on the northern
shores of the lake.
Mr. Clemens, accompanied by Rev.
C. F. Lewis of Duluth and Rev. J. A.
Davis, visited the Chippewas and held
services in their rude chapel. At the
conclusion of the sermon the three
ministers were led forward and the
tribal chief took Mr. Clemens by the
hand and said, I name theeO-ge-ma-
Mr. Davis was named Na-wa-qua-
gi-shig and Mr. Lewis Ana-qua
doance. The former name means
"noon-day" and the latter "little
cloud." After the ceremony the three
received moccasins, gaily beaded, and
bands of beadwork were thrown over
their shoulders. They were informed
that their new names would be sent
by runners to other Chippewa bands
and that hereafter they will find
friends wherever Chippewas are gath
During the trip Mr. Clemens wedded
a buck and an Indian bride, and his
two friends were much surprised to
find that the custom of kissing the
bride prevails even in the northern
woods. The wedding fee consisted of
embroidered deerskin purses.
An Example of Yankee Shrewdness.
"Talk about Yankee shrewdness,"
said the traveling man. was in a
little tavern up in Connecticut not
long ago, and a farmer came in with
eggs to sell. The transaction took i
place in the barroom of the establish-1
ment. The proprietor agreed t) take
two dozen, and when the farmer came
to count over the contents of his
basket, he found that he had twenty-'
five eggs. The proprietor wanted the i
extra egg thrown in for good measure.
The farmer didn't see it that way
and thej argued the matter. At last!
the proprietor said he'd take the
twenty-five eggs, give the man a
drink, and call it square. The farmer
agreed and pocketed his money.
"'Now, what'11 you have,' asked
the proprietor. The Yankee farmer
was ready with his reply.
"S'herry and egg,' said he. "Wash
If the present program is carried
out Kansas is to stand at the head of
all states this year in railroad con
struction. Already 1,400 miles are
projected with much more in sight.
Kansas has long since passed out of
the list of doubtful states and railroad
companies and other interests treat
her just as they do Illinois and Iowa.
The resources of this state seem only
to need cultivation, as the energies of
a tired or worried man need freshen

inquisitive mind, stopped and asked:
"How long have you hauled water
for the village, my good man?"
"Tin years, sor."
"Ah! How many loads do you take
in a day?"
"From tin tofifteen,sor."
"Ah, yes! Now I have a problem
for you. How much water, at this
rate, have you hauled in all, sir?"
The driver of the watering cart
jerked his thumb backward toward
the river and replied, "All the wather
yez don't see there now, sor."
"Shall I say that you are very
fond of America, as usual?" asked
the press agent.
"Wait till I have the books bal

with characteristic business foresight.
"If the profits are more than $50,000
