Though the ocean covert about
three-fourths of the surface of the
earth, it does not, in the same pro*

The development of the dairy in
dustry in the United States is scarce
ly realized by business men. In 1898
the butter haul over the Minneapolis
St. Louis railroad was four hun

was nearly fourteen millions, the gain
coming wholly from developments of
creameries along the line of road.
An agreement has been made by the
acting governor of British Honduras
with Mr. Buckner Chipley, of Pensa

A grain elevator and warehouse
combined, the construction of which
was begun about three years ago, has
just been completed at the east end of
Edinburgh Dock, Lfeith, Scotland, on

driven by electric motors. The cost
was $300,000. It was built by a Port

Though but few alligator skins are
sent abroad from Venezuela, it is not
on account of scarcity of alligators. It
is strange that nobody has taken up
the hunting of these reptiles. They
are there in the lakes and lagoons and
rivers in untold numbers and of all
sizes. The skins are well worth se
curing, and alligator oil brings a high
price, being used for medical purposes.
Harvard has secured the largest tel
escope in the world. It will soon be

It was made by the English astrono
mer, A. A. Common, who died not long
ago, and who wished the telescope to
go to Harvard. The telescope has a
five-foot aperture, while the lens of
the telescope at the Yerkes observa
tory is 40 inches, and that of the Lick
observatory, 36 Inches.
Japan has the cheapest postal serv
ice in the world. Letters are carried
all over the empire for two sen, about
seven-tenths of a cent. This is the
more remarkable when we consider
the difficulties of transportation over
a mountainous and irregular country
that has only about a hundred miles
of railway, while only a few of the
chief roads can be used for wagons
and the steamships connect only a
small number of stations on the coast

International disputes is apparently
coming more and more into use. A

existing treaties between the two na

Chefoo, Nov. 6.—Chinese who left
Port Dalny Thursday evening report
that batches of wounded were passing
through Dalny. They report, also, that
during the recent battle fresh Japa
nese troops were constantly going to
the front. It is reported that the Japa

Port Arthur during the last three
months approximate 40,000.
There are persistent rumors that
the Japanese have occupied the forts
of Rihhing mountain and certain forts
of the Kekwan mountain group, but
well-informed Japanese here consider
these rumors as premature. These
Japanese, however, are confident that
the end of the Russian occupation of
Port Arthur is fast approaching. They
admit that they have been disappoint

the defenders of^ort Arthur have re

caliber. Many Russians, the corre
spondents assert, are deserting and
surrendering. The Japanese, it is
added, are advancing with irresistible

confirm these statements, but the

Fort Arthur on Fire Again.
A vigorous bombardment with
naval guns was delivered at noon on
November 3 against the east harbor,
dockyard, and other points, as a re
sult of which a fierce conflagration oc
curred near the east harbor. The fire
raged from 12:15 p. m. to four o'clock.
The same day the fire of large caliber
guns was directed against "H" fort at
a height of 200 yards and the north
west tower. Heavy damage *was
caused by the bombardment on both
the fort and tower.
Nogi Reports Gains.
Tokio, Nov. 7.—There was pub
lished Saturday a series of reports of
the besieging forces at Port Arthur
covering the operations froift October
SO to November 3 inclusive. These
report* show that the Japanese con
tinue vigorously to press the attack
and that they are using heavy artil
lery to batter down the Russian de
fenses, following the artillery fire
vith valorous infantry rushes. The
five days' fighting covered in the re
ports give the Japanese a number of
distinct gains, materially shortening
the defensive power of the garrison.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 7.—Military ac
tivity in the vicinity of the Shakhe
river is limited to the extension and
strengthening of entrenchments,.
There are indications that the Japa
nese have not given up the plan of
ceeking to force Gen. Kuropatkin into
another general engagement, although
in military circles here the belief is
expressed that there will be no other
big battle in the campaign this year.
The positions of the two armies are
unchanged. The Russians are un
changed. The Russians continue in
frequent and ineffectual bombard
ment, principally at night or in the
early morning, with heavy guns, de
voting their energies chiefly to the
Japanese left, where the lines are
nearer than elsewhere. The Japanese

HIS NARROW ESCAPE.
President Roosevelt Thrown from His
Horse—Lies Unconscious in
Washington, Nov. 8.—President
Roosevelt had an escape from death, so
narrow that it was alinost miraculous,
while he was rfting through the country
near Washington a week ago iMt Sun
day afternoon. The accident did not be
come known until Wednesday. The
president was approaching a high fence
at top speed, when his horse stumbled
and fell, throwing Mr. Rooseivelt heavily.
He struck squarely on his head, and
was so severely stunned that he was
unconscious for some time, just how
long he does not know, as he was riding
entirely alone. When tie regained his
senses he found his horse standing near
him. The president tried to mount, but
was so dizzy from the shock that he
could not stand. It was some time be
fore he regained full control of his legs
and arms. He then remounted and rode
at a slow pace to the point where his
orderly was waiting for him. By that
time there was a great lump on the right
side of the president's head and blood
was trickling from along but shallow
scalp wound above the right ear, where
his head had grazed a stone. The cut
extended down onto the forehead and
the evidences Jf it are still there. The
president regards it as a miracle that his
neck was not broken by the force of his
fall. The president ordered that not a
word be said about his accident A
prominent official told the story to show
