Dry, moist, scaly tetter, all forms of eczema or salt rheum, pimples and other cutaneous eruptions pro ceed from humors, either inherited, or acquired through defective di gestion and assimilation. To treat these eruptions "with drying medicines is dangerous.

Hood's SarsaparUta promises to cure and keeps the promfse. vessels 'that comprised Jhe Japanese fleet which attacked and destroyed the Russian cruisers Variag and Korittz at Chemulpo on the'Sth instant, were the cruisers Naniva, Takachino, Akashi Suma and the Asama. The Japanese did not lose a man. The survivors from the Variag and the Korietz, the Russian cruisers that were sunk by the Japanese fleet at Chemulpo last Tuesday still remiln on board the British cruiser Talbot, the Italian cruiser Elba and the French cruiser Pascal. The situation is be coming acute as the Japanese have twice made demands on the command ers of the three foreign vessels that the Russians be surrendered as pris oners of war. The captain of tho Talbot, being the senior naval officer, each time replied that he was awaiting instructions from his government. None of the Russians are on board the American gunboat Vicksburg, whose commander considers that the Japanese are right in their demands as the Russians took advantage of tb ciciency of the Japanese in re turning to the harbor and then taking refuse on the foreign vessels and re lusiug to surrender whereas the Jap anese feet refrained from sinking them in the open sea as they could have dona. JAPAN DEEPLY STIRRED The Zensho Maru Incident Is Called a Wanton Crime. Tokio, Feb. 15. Japan is deeply stirred and bitterly resentful over the sinking of the merchant vessel Zensho Maru by four Russian cruisers which attacked the Zensho Maru and her companion the Naganoura Maru while on their way from Hakodate to Otaru, on the island Hakkaido. The attack of the Russians is declared to be a wanton crime, unjustified under any circumstances, even assuming that the Zensho Maru disregarded sig nals, which is denied. The foreign office has issued the fol lowing statement regarding the sink ing of the Zensho Maru: "Two Jap anese merchant vessels, the Zensho Maru and the Naganoura Maru, ton nage 170 and 700 respectively, while sailing from Hakata for Otaru, were suddenly attacked by four Russian cruisers from Vladivostock on Feb. 11, while ten miles off Jensangtsi. Fire was opened without any 'order being given the vessels to surrender. The Naganoura succeeded in escaping. The other vessel was surrounded by the cruisers and sunk. All on board were either killed or drowned." It is said the Japanese government is planning reprisals. Several Russian ships which have been detained in or der to prevent reports of the move ments of the Japanese from reaching the enemy will now, it is said, be sent to the prize courts, and in all probabil ity will be confiscated. The presence of the Russian squad rons in northern Japanese waters cen ters all interest there. The country is Isolated and it is difficult to obtain sat isfactory reports from there. A variety of rumors stir Tokio. One says Matsuma has been bombarded; another that the Japanese cruisers have engaged the Russians. The gov ernment has not confirmed anything ercept the Zensho Maru incident. It is. doubted that Matsuma has been bombarded, as it is undefended. It is regarded as probable that the Russian fleet returned to Vladivostock after completing a movement planned to di vert the Japanese. The Japanese war ship Amain has captured the German steamer Yoko hama which had a cargo including dy namite for Pore Arthur. JAPS LAND NEAR SEOUL Official Confirmation of Heavy Move ment at Chemulpo.
