PAGE FIVE- LITTLE EFFORT TO DEFEAT CROMER Delegates to Eighth District Republican Convention Selected Tuesday. MANY ARE MUCH ELATED. THE MANNER IN WHICH CROMER DEFEATED THOSE MEN WHO BOLTED THE TICKET CAUSES ENEMIES TO LIKE HIM. Primaries will he held in Delaware county Tuesday to elect delegates to the Eighth District Republican Con vention awl to the state convention. Reports received here today indicate that very little effort is being made to defeat ex-Congressman George V. Cromer of Muncie. Since he won out in the convention at which tho dis trict was reorganized his opponents in Delaware County have realized that he occupied a winning position. It in said that many Republicans in the district who never have had a high regard for Cromer are secretly dated over the defeat he adminis tered to the members of his party who boltel the ticket in the last state election. It will he a big surprise to 1he party leaders if Cromer does not secure all of tho delegates in his own county. His followers are in the sad dle in the other counties, but they have not indicated whom they will support for the congressional nomina tion. Tho Madison County Commit tee has indorsed the candidacy of A. II. Vestal, of Anderson, indicating that the county will have no other candi date. Vestal, however, has not elect ed any delegates, and it is conceded that he will not be able 10 land the nomination unless Cromer and his fol lowers support him. The situation is one of the most in teresting in the state, and no one neems to be able to predict the out come, as Cromer has not intimated to any one what course he will pur flue.

Tnt This bathroom in Japau was a tiny nnd nt i. hv A fonf cars n -writpi in Craftsman. in it were lour oojects, a k stool to sit upon when washing oneself before getting into the bath, a shining brass wash basin, a wooden pail and dipper in which to fetch the bath wa ter and the tub. The tub, like most private baths, was round, casket shap ed and made of white wood. It was perhaps thirty inches in diameter and twenty-Beveu inches high. A copper funnel or tube passing through the bot tom went up inside close to the edge. This, filled with lighted charcoal, sup plied heat for the water. The pipe was higher than the tub, so the water could not leak Inside. A few trans verse bars of wood fitted into grooves and formed a protection so the bather could kneel in the tub without coming in contact with the hot pipe. The walls of the room were of white wood, with a pretty grain; the floor of pine, laid ' with a slight slope and grooved so the ( water might flow into a gutter and through a bamboo pipe to the yard. A- moon snapea lattice window uign up let in air and light. As a provision for more ventilation the two outside walls for a foot below the ceiling were tice of bamboo slats. As my eye traveled from object to object I quickly sized up the cost for the tub, 8 yen, and it would last indefinitely; 2 yen for the brass basin, BO sen for the pail and dipper and 25 sen for the stool. Eleven yen would fit up my bathroom, and I asked for nothing nicer. The Skin and Liquids. The skin has a remarkable power of absorbing liquids brought into contact with it. Fluids so taken up are In part detained locally and In part enter the tiny vessels (blood and lymph) that lead to the large blood vessels. In the days of long ago blood baths were used, but their employment was found ed on ignorance. The most important constituents of blood cannot pass through the skin unless they have been ; previously treated chemically. I.o- tions of blood so prepared are iu the j present day used by some beauty lov- I rs. Milk baths are more in agree-' ment with science and common sense. ' They are not reconcilable with one's notions of economy. Fancy bathing In about teu gallons of milk to secure the fibsorptlon of a few teaspoonfuls! Pla-eona an Doctor's Asniatants.

It consists of couplets with a bow of ribbon opposite each. The game is to send it, not one, but all couplets, on one sheet to a gentleman to test his regard for you. As the verses in dicate, he is to send back to the girl the bow which must accurately ex press his regard for her. It is bad form' to sign a name to the missive and that is the fun of it. The young man is supposed to guess from whom it is. Of course he may send back the bow to the wrong girl, but tJiat is his lookout. If he hasn't intuition enough to answer to the right girl he Is a ! poor prospect. But that is still more fun.

OEA OF WAR IS 100 HELLISH SAYS JAP AMBASSADOR Baron Takahira States That, Thoughts of Conflict With! America in His Home Coun- try Are Dec;d2Dly Foreign. NOTHING BUT GOOD WILL TOWARD AMERICA Man of Ordinary Sanity Can not Think of Conflict Be tween Such Good Friends As America and Japan. New York. Feb. 17.- Declaring that war between the l.'niied States and Ja pan would be " the most Inhuman event in the world's history," and was "too hellish" to be thought of. Uaron Kopo ro Tahahira. the new JapaneM? Ambas sador to Wa.hinston, tabl upon land- j ins in New York from th steamer j Etruria that the Ja panose people know i absolutely nothing uf a break in the cordial relations which have bctn his toric between the two nations. Talk of war, Baron Tal ahira declared, was utterly unintelligible to hint unless, as some one has suggested, it was spread broadcast to serve the commercial ends of some newspaper men. The new Ambassador said that there might be some mattet 5 pending in uashiufcton which would require his attention, but they were not serious. As to the cruise of the American fleet to the Pacific ocean he regarded it as purely a naval maneuver on a graud scale, designed to show the world at large that America had a wonderful naval power, which can be dispatched anywhere at a moment's notice "In support of a legitimate cause, which always is at the bottom of American diplomacy." Baron Takahira left for Washing ton today to present his credentials to President Roosevelt. The Baron is returning to the American capital af er an absence of two years spent in; Rome as Ambassador to Italy. The Baron left Washington as minister, and was subsequently lifted to the rank of ambassador. He" was one of Japan's Envoys at the Portsmouth peace conference. His Return a Triumph. "I am pleased to come back to this fAtinirv in mi r rflofin no o f oitsl iwarou latvauua. 10 a reprebemauve oi the Associated Press. "I started m diplomatic career as an attache at our legation in Washington some iio years ago, aud I always have regarded that city as my cradle. Now I am going back there as the personal representa tive of the Japanese Emperor, accred ited to the President of the United States, aud I think I can consider it as a triumphal entry into that city. t Friendly Relations Unchanged. "I know there were Borne questions arising after I left about the segrega tion of Japanese children in some of the schools of the Pacific coast and of Japanese immigration. I cannot, of course, tell you at this moment who 1 will have to deal with or what remains to require my attention at Washing ton. Yet I tell you that In spite of all the excitement and speculation report-1 ed from time to time in the newspapers there has never been any change In the attitude of the Japanese government toward this country. "As to the. voyage of the American fleet to the Pacific, so much talked of recently, I regard it purely as an Amer ican affair. I hear there has been all sorts of speculation as to the move- rments of such a voyage, but I always thought that the most reasonable one we ca nattribute is a naval maneuver on a grand scale. The United States is a country of the most pacific inten tions, as has been well proved by his tory. As we say in our proverb, 'Don't forget war in time of peace, it must be necessary, even for such a ; great country as this to ascertain now i and then the working capacity of its j ships and the good discipline of Its j men. You will certainly learn a great ' deal from such a long cruise by such a large force. No Cause for Suspicion. "The ships have not only gone to the Pacific coast, but have passed through South American waters, and if there ; is anything in the movements that con- j slitute3 a demonstration it must be aj demonstration to the world a large in j order to show that the United States', has such great power that can r sent j out any moment iu snpltort of a legit-j imaie cause, which always is at the j foundation of American diplomacy.
