Iiand While the Fleet Ile ' sumed Bombardment. It Is Further Reported That In an Engagement 600 Russians T Were Killed. k. Yin Kow, March 22. Firing was heard off the coast, apparently about six miles to the southward, fourteen shots having been heard between 7 and 7:30 this morning. The morning wa hazy and it was impossible to distinguish objects at sea. A credible report has reached here that two cruisers and five gunboats were ofZ Kinchow yesterday. London, March 22. A number of rumors are printed in the newspapers here today but they must be accepted with great reserve. A Tokio corres pondent cables a newspaper report of the Japanese occupation,, of Port Arth ur after a combined land and sea at tack Saturday and Sunday. It is as serted that a division of Japanese landed on the Liao Tung peninsula Saturday and engaged the Russians near Port Arthur while the fleet bom barded from Saturday evening until Sunday morning. The same correspondent reports a sharp encounter at Chyong Syong (on the Yalu river about 30 miles north east of Wiju) in which the Russians lost 600 killed or wounded. A Shang hai correspondent hears from New Chvvang that Japanese crossed Ta tung pass forty miles from Hai Cheng, and that collisions occurred with the Russians. Reports from Seoul and Tokio are to the effect that Marquis Ito has ar ranged to lend 5,000,000 yen ($2,700, 000) to Korea on easy terms. According to a Tien Tsin corres pondent, China is appealing to the powers for an extension of a year in the period for the payment of the indemnity growing out of the Boxer troubles. This correspondent reports that Kataoka, a Japanese merchant and Russian spy, has been assassinat ed by being buried alive, but that the Japanese authorities disavow any knowledge of the assassins. TAKING NO CHANCES R:ssia Will Not Fight Until She Is Ready. St. Petersburg, March 22. Gen. Zhilinski's official confirmation of the reports that the Russian outposts abandoned Anju upon the approach of the Japanese in force causes no surprise here as such action is in per fect accord with the Russian plan of campaign. The Russian skirmishing and advanced posts were thrown for ward solely for the purpose of harras sing and worrying the Japanese out posts, falling back as the main body of the enemy moves forward until the strong positions at the Yalu river are reached. The fifty miles of country between Anju and the Yalu are very difficult tor the movement of a large force. There may be some lively skirmishing as the Japanese advance progresses, but the Russians are re solved to avoid a decisive engagement until certain of victory. CHINA'S ATTITUDE Is Giving Russia No End of Ground for Apprehension. St. Petersburg. March 22. In gov ernment circles there exists a strong belief that the question as to whether China will observe her neutrality un dertakings will depend largely on the result of the first heavy land fighting. A big victory by the Russian army, it Is believed, will insure the quiescence of the celestial empire, but there are grave fears as to what might hippen in the event of a signal Japanese suc cess in the early stages of the land operations. Russia's political plans are based on the appreciation of the supreme importance of the first land battle, and no fighting on a large scale will take place if it possibly can be avoided, until the Russians feel piorally certain that they can deal the enemy a crushing blow. Japanese Fleet's Plans. Rome, March 22. The Japanese le gation here announces that repairs to the Japanese fleet are actively pro ceeding in order that the vessels may be ready to meet the Russian Baltic fleet. According to the information received from the Japanese legation It is intended to have the fleet In perfect condition by the end of June, and therefore further bombardments of fortified pjaces are improbable, es- Biliousness, sour s'omaoh, constipa :;J all liver ils are cured by The non-irritatinsr cathartic. .Price ,2.3 cents of all druggists or by mail of C.L.

I was troubled with eczema on the face for five months during which time I was In the care of physicians. My face was in such a condition that I could not go out. It was going from bad to worse and I gave up all hope, when a friend of mine highly recom mended Cuticnra Remedies. The first night after I washed my face with Cu ticura Soap and used Cuticura Ointment and Cuticura Resolvent it changed won derfully, and continuing the treatment It removed all scales and scabs. From that day I was able to go out, and in a month my face was as clean as ever." THOMAS J. SOTH, 317 Stagg St., Brooklyn, N. Y. The above letter was received in 1893 and he again writes us Feb. 19, 1903, I have not been troubled with eczema eince." The agonizing itching and burning of the skin as in eczema; the frightful scaling, as in psoriasis ; the loss of hair and crusting of scalp, as in scalled head; the facial disfigurement, as in pimples and ringworm; the awful suf fering of infants, and anxiety of worn out parents, as in milk crust, tetter and salt rheum all demand a remedy of almost superhuman virtues to success fully cope with them. That Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Resolvent are such stands proven beyond all doubt. No statement is made regarding them that is not justified by the strongest evi dence. The purity and sweetness, the power to afford immediate relief, the certainty of speedy and permanent cure, the absolute safety and great economy have made them the standard skin cures of the civilized world. faouM Sd.

Burdock Blood Bitters gives a man a clear head, an active brain, a strong a clear head, an active brain, a strong, vigorous body makes him fit for the battle of life. unfortunate wind carries the seeds of some wild and worthless plant there and they quickly root and flourish. Almost any grave change in health is at once betrayed by the loss of flesh, which shows most often in the face. This con dition almost always co-exists with im poverished blood. A gain of flesh up to a certain point means a rise in other essentials of health ; the red corpuscles of the blood are increased, and the color improved. When persons find them selves losing weight they should heed the warning, and use the proper means in time before disease fastens on them. A tonic alterative is needed to digest and assimilate the food. Cod-Liver Oil was Ihe old fashioned remedy for a run-down system, or a chronic wasting disease. The digestion of the oil is a task for the healthiest stomach, and sensitive stomachs rebel against it. A great improvement in the means employed for the benefit and cure of such cases is Dr. Pierce's Golden . Medical Discovery, which maintains the nutrition of the body by ena bling the person to eat, retain, digest and assimilate food. " It overcomes indigestion if present, soothes the cough, and, by its alterative prop erties, cleanses the blood. All the organs therefore are fed on pure, rich blood ; and the person using the "Gold en Medical Discovery " gains in flesh ana strength. Fe ver, night-sweats, headache, are dispelled.

Mr. Roy A. Reed, of Casper, Wyoming; writes: "For eight years I had catarrh of the throat in the very worst form ; could hardly speak above a whisper for two years. Tried nearly a dozen patent medi cines without relief. I was so discouraged that I just about decided catarrh could not be cured with any medicine. My father, however, advised me to try Dr. Pierce's medicines before giving up. I followed his advice and commenced using the medi cine on the twentieth of December. I was surprised to note the result of the first month's treatment. After using six bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, I was perfectly cured. It has been months since I took the last medicine, and I have not had the least return of my trouble. I have felt beetter during the past two months than for seven winters previous to this time." Mrs. Lydia James, of Ogdensburg, Wis., writes: "In regard to your medicine will say that the 'Golden Medical Discovery is a God-send to suffering women. I was sick in bed with liver complaint and kid ney disease and fever when I began to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. In ten days' time I was so I could begin to get around the house, and gained right along. After that, took about five bottles of it and am sure I would have been in my grave by this time had it not been for this remedy. I would advise all suffer ing women to use Dr. Pierce's medicines." Mrs. Robt. Lambden, of Havana, N. Dak., Box 94, writes : "No one can tell how much I suffered with my leg. It was so bad for a year I could hardly walk around to do my work, and at times couldn't even bear the weight of a sheet over me at night, but your medicines cured me. My leg is quite well again. After I had taken two bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, I began to feel very different and kept get ting better. Took nine bottles of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' also used Dr. Pierce's All-Healing Salve, and now my leg is as well as it ever was. Am willing every one should know what good your medicines have done, and would advise anv one suf fering as I did to try the same treatment. I think and feel sure it will help them." The Reason.
