War Clonds Gathering.
LoNnoJi, July 28. A dispatch ro-cr-lvcd
hero nt 11:50 a. m. to-elny from
Lloyds Agent ni Shanghai, Chtnn, con
firms tho announcement exclusively
cabled lo thq Associated press on Sat
urday last that war between China
nnd Japan has been declared and fight
ing Is said to have already begun.
Matthlcson A Co., Lloyds' nffcnts In
England, have received a cablo mes
sage which confirms tho announcement
that war has been declared between
Japan and China.
Tho cans- of tho declaration of war
is said to bo tho fact, as previously
announced by tho Associated press,
that tho Japancso attacked tho Chinese
transports convoying troops to Ccrca,
In this engagement at least ono Chinese
transport was sunk by a Japanese
Hut it wonld now seem that the
fighting between tho Chinese nnd Jap
ancso warships was much more, serious
than at first announced, for It is ru
mored in ontl-Chlncso circles that tho
Chinese havo already suffered very
heavy losses, nnd it Is bcliovo-1 that a
number of Chinese ships havo been
sunk by tho Japancso cruisers.
The Japanese Too Hasty.
Wabuisoto. July 31. It Is tho opin
ion of diplomats hero that the Japan
ese havo made a grave error in sinking
tho transport Kow
Shung, and ono that
is likely to cost
them much money
in reparation, be
sides tho humili
ation of an apol
ogy. Tho Kow
Shung was ono ol
tho lino of coasting
to Hugh Mathtcson
fc Co., and trading
rair-noRorjArAX. oetween unincsc
ports. Tho vessel was under the Hrlt
ish flag when she was sunk. Al
though sho carried Chinese troops to
Corea, it Is stated hero sho did not In
bo doing violate tho law of neutrality,
for there had been no declaration of
war or open acknowledgment by cither
China or Japan thnt war prevails. The
vessel, therefore, was engaged in le
gitimate trnflle, nnd tho Japancso arc
likely to pay dearly for sinking her
and destroying tho lives of the ship's
An interesting explanation of tho
present attltudo of Japan toward China
was furnished by a diplomat of much
experience In Asiatic affairs. lie first
pointed out the fact that internal con
ditions in Japan aro and have been for
some, timo very much disturbed. There
has been great friction between the
mikado and his cabinet on ono side
and the parliament and the people,
on the other. This steadily in
creased until tho parliament actually
passed a resolution requesting tho
mikado to remove his cabinet and re
place it by other men more nearly in
accord with their ideas, which nro dis
tinctly reactionary and marked by re
sentment of tho presence of foreigners
in Japan and the extentlon of modern
civilizing systems. The emperor's an
swer camo quick nnd sharp In a decree
proroguing the parliament.
This added to the popular feeling of
dissatisfaction, the government became
alarmed, tho data of the election of
tho new parliament drew near and
some hc'.jJc measure were necessary
to prevent nn overwhelming defeat,
tho result of which might be to
turn Japan backwards In tho
march toward civilization and perhaps
overthrow tho emperor himself. The
JapanoMi relations to Corea growing
out of the obstacles to trade with that
country n 1th Its limitation on the fish
eries and upon tho numler of ports
open to Japanese trade were in a very
unsatisfactory state, nnd this, with a
state of domestic affairs, led tho Japan
ese government to adopt very vigorous
foreign policies in which it is quite
sure of popular support

Found In the Sea nnd In Ponds ns 'Well as
In tho sea there nro plenty of spiders.
They nro found crawling upon sea
weeds along tho shore. Their bodies
nro very small and their legs long and
threadlike. There is n species of
arachnid thnt lives under tho water In 1
fresh ponds. It makes its home In nn
empty shell of a water snal), closing
with 11 web of varnished silk to keep
tho wnter out. Other amiatlo spiders
spread silken 111 nine tits under wntcr to
entrap Insects. In Now Zealand there
is n blnclc spider with n red spot on its
stomach, which is supposed to have a
blto falnl to huninn beings. Tho snmo
anlmnl has a similar reputation else
where though undeservedly. It is
found In this conntry.
All spiders nro venomous, but none
of them nro deadly. Tho spider of 111
reputo nboro mi tloncd Is aflllctcd
with constitutional hydrophobia. It
will go into n lit If touched w ith water,
though other speoioa will drink eager
ly if n drop of that fluid is offered on n
straw. A severe spider blto produces
symptoms like those of lock-jaw. In
the tropics llvo great hairy spiders,
Some of them weigh half a pound, ulth
a spread of legs wldo enough to cover
a ton pinto. Most of them spin no
webs, but llg a hole In ' ground,
line it with silk nnd lit 1 rith a trap
door so nr fully mado ns to' hinge,
bevel edge and spring thnt lt Is almost
impossible to find tho opening. In some
cases they actually plant seeds on tho
dainty portal for the purpose of con
cealing It with growing plants.
The mission of spiders In the world
Is doubtlesi to keep down tho flies,
which would otherwise swarm over tho
earth. Only tho females spin webs;
the mnles aro about one-twentieth the
sUo of tho females, the sole purpose of
their existence bolng that of reproduc
tion. fiplders nro very fond of tho music of
stringed Instruments, because to their
cars It resembles the busting of captive
files. Their greatest enemies nro
wasps, which paralyze them by sting
ing them. Then tho wasp plants tho
spider In a hole, Jays an egg bcsldo her
and covers her up. The young wasp
grub, on being hatched, feeds .on tho
lody of tho spider. On a warm autumn
day tho air Is sometimes full of spiders'
webs. Certain species of arachnids at
tach threads to the ground nnd permit
tho brcero to blow them away. Thus
they remain for days suspended high in
tho air and miles away from their an
ohorngo. The arrival of a moist spell
ofwenthe? sometimes produeos a rain
of spiders' webs, causing great aston
ishment. Spiders are feeble creatures,
their poison affording llttlo protection
against the attacks of Inject foes. Like
huninn beings, they have unprotected
bodies, nnd no natural weapons worth
mentioning. Their survival in creation
Is due to the exercise of superior intel
ligence. Itoston Transcript.
More I.lvrs I.ost on the Frontier Than by
line hide In the Crimean War.
l'rof. R. V. Kogbaum, who lectured
In this city recently, says: "On my
journeys to Europo I have had some in
teresting experiences with tho armies
there. I have seen and studied
the English, German, Austrian
and Trench armies, and hope to see the
liusslan and others some day. I havo
an oxeellont opinion of the American
regular. lie is a thorough soldier from
the top dowtt This includes both
the otllcer and enlisted man. Ho be
lieves in discipline, and he has
endurance, pluck, intelligence, grit
and the ability to adapt himself to
circumstances. Until two years ago
the regular troops in our western states
had leen fighting continuously. Cnpt.
Charles King Informs me that since the l
close of the civil war more officers havo
been killed In frontier lighting with the
Indians than were lost by the English
hi the enliro Crimean war. I have mado
marches with our regulars and havo
endured the hardships of that life. On
several occasions the men had small
frontier fights with the Indians while I
was with thorn, but never nny serious
battles. Mnrchlng and scouting is the
hardest work of the soldier. The Amer
ican soldier is a very intelligent fellow.
On a march, no matter what obstaolo is
presented, he always overcomes lt. An
enlisted man sometimes modestly sug
gests n means, and if it is good the ofll
ccrs use It.
"The most warlako people of the
world aro the peoplo of this country.
Some people might take me to task for
this statement, but it is true. Tho
Americans are not a military people,
they aro not quarrelsome, and they do
not want to hurt anybody, but they
will not let anybody hurt them. Thoy
have a warlike spirit and resent an at

WORRY AND INDIGESTION.
Serenity of Teluper hii Inalcntlnn of (lood
Worry Is n baneful curse nnd source
of untold evils, lt scams the faco with
lines nnd furrows, nnd lins n mit de
pressing effect upon thnt hypor-sensl-ttvo
orgm, the stomach, whloh nt buch
times becomes n most unwilling nnd
laggard servant Indeed, it is safe to
say that unless encouraged by n cheer
ful temper nnd bright, or at least hope
ful, thoughts, tho stomach will play
trunntor sulk nnd do no work which
It can shirk. Tho physiological
explanation of this is tho close
alliance of tho great symrmthetlo
nerves, which are worse than
tho telegraph for carrying bad news;
the worry and anxiety which depress J
the brain produce simultaneously n
scml-paralysis of the nerves of the
stomach, gartric juice will not flow
und presto, there is indigestion. Ono
sign of mental health Is serenity of
temper nnd a self-control that enables
us to bear with equnnlmlty nnd un
ruffled temper the potty trials and Jars
of life, especially those arising from
contact with scolding, irnsoible, Irri
tating folk. It is well to remember at
such times that these unfortunate aro
their own cnomtos, nnd a cultivation of
the art of not hearing will help us very
much. It is a very useful art nil
through life and well worth some trou
blo to acquire Demorost's.

Those people who can not view tho
multitude of blossoms on their eherry
trees with unmixed delight, owing to
thoughts of hungry robins later In tho
season, may like to try a plan recom
mended for tho discomfiture of these too
aggressive songsters. This is to put n
spool of the coarsest white thread on a
long polo so that it will wind off when
walking with It around the tree, and
with it make a sort of netted shield for
tho cherries. These numerous cross
strotched strings, fastened on the outer
margin of the twigs, frighten off tho
birds. Their outenee suspects a trap. 1

A MILLIONAIRE'S REVENGE.
An lUtraanllDnry Tnle nf n Modem l'ntl
dmr' Wlfo nnd n Modern Tlmon.
A plnl.i wooden colli n (wrlton tho St.
Petersburg correspondent) was iately
conveyed, in n shaky old hearso, to i'o
poor people's section of tho Volkova
cemetery, In this olty. There was no
priest to recite the last prayers, no
mourners to shed n tear over the rela
tive or friend who had passed nun;
the grave-diggers lowered tho wooden
box, hurriedly shoveled In the earth,
stamped on the grave and nil was otr.
A dog or n rabbit might havo been thus
put out of sight. And yot all St. Peters
burg Is now talking about the lifeless
inmate of that plain, frail colltn. Tor ho
was one a well-known manufacturer, n
millionaire, n power In the capital of
Ilunatn, who scattered, money to tho
right und to the left, doing many n
generous deed, never known or long
since forgotten and now there Is none
so poor to do him reverence. His pov
erty and misery were of his own choos
ing; ingratitude drove htm to Imitate
Tlmon of Athens, nnd to turn his lrack
In the cry height of his prosperity
lie fell ill, and his recovery was de
spaired nf He made n will iu fnvor of
his wife, who wus then no longer
young, and of his children, vhom he
adored. He survived the crisis of his
timl'ady nnd was able to move nbout,
but his death was bellevod to be only n
matter of months. The doctors sent
him to n watering-place for the sum
mer soason, not expecting him to re
turn alive, and his wife and children
shared the conviction of the physicians.
Appointing a young man, who wan
bound to him by the strongest ties of
gratitude, to lie director of tho works,
he left St. Petersburg alone.
At first he became muoh worse, ns
everybody expected, then ho rapidly
improved, in consequence of which ho
stayed on longer than Itad been his in
tention. At the end of slv months ho
returned home as hale and hearty as
ever, eagerto enjoy life w ith his family.
Hut he found no family there. His wlfo
had played the role of Potiphar'sspouso
In hut absence, but the young director
proved no Jol-ph The guilty patrlived
together openly, and succeeded In.tttrn
log the children ugHlnst their fntli-r.
At first the woman hail expected his
death, and merely anticipated as she
thought the course of action sho would
in that case pursuo Then, flnding she
had gone too far to retreat, she simply
demanded u large yearly allowance for
herself, her paramour and the children.
It was a terriblo blow for S , but
he aoted with prompt decision, nnd,
without uttering n word of complaint
or reproach, first of all he dis
missed the director. Then, calling
the bookkeeper Into his room,
he said "Now, look hero. You
know what lias taken place, but
you don't know how lt ha affected me.
The 'pair' counted on my death and
were disappointed. They now reckon
nn my riches, and I wish them to be
disappointed still more. As long as I
jnsxess anything I must make them nn i
allowance. Therefore. I want to pos-
seas nothing. If I squander my money
they will apply to the court to have i
me declared non comix mentis, nnd
trustees will be appointed to look after
' owyUiing, and that, of course. Is not

sole owner of the works, etc., nnd I can
do what I like with my own, and I want
you to exert yourself to bring every
thing to rack and ruin, so thnt sudden
ly the whole concern will burst and
leave nothing but dust behind. Mind
now, nothing must bo loft. Enrich
yourself, let the eashlors enrich them
selves; don't forget the workmon. Do
just what you like I will second you;
but let tho end 1m as I desire." And
the bookkeeper went and carried out
his omplnyer's instructions conscien
tiously. The manufacturer, seeing how thingSj
were going, rubbed his hands with de
light and paid his wlfo tho covenanted
allowance. At the end of the two
years came the crash -a complete
crash, the very fragments of which
could not be gathered up by his family1
lie fore the matter lieenme public in
called a meeting of his cashiers, boolf
keeper, foreman and hi, wife and till;
The latter were convinced that.

He opened the meeting by asking lis
oashlera for their reports They de
clared the works to lie so heavily In
debt that It would be criminal to hiep
them going any longer on crallt.
"Very well, go at once to the ooi t,"
lie said to his bookkeeper, "and reidrt
my iusolvency." His wife aad chlltWi
protoHtcjd loudly and indignantly.
They would make thing ooininercldly
right again If lie would ily
give them the works. Hut lie
waa Inexorable; the bookkwpcr
went, and six months itter
everything was sold for a song. 'Ilien.
addiesslng his family, he said: '.Vow
time is some for us to separate. My
dear wife can seek comfort witi her

"Here, master.'' "And tho staff?"
"Here, please.'' He flung tha wallet
over hi shoulders, took the stalf in his
hand, mado the sign of tho cJksm und
kissed tho old servant.
Then, without a word of farewell for
his wife or children, ho loft U houso
