Yin Kow, March 22. Firing was

six miles to the southward, fourteen
shots having been heard between 7
and 7:30 this morning. The morning

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

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

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

Reports from Seoul and Tokio are
to the effect that Marquis Ito has ar
ranged to lend 5,000,000 yen ($2,700,

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
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.
Is Giving Russia No End of Ground
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-

Under Physicians Five
Months. Went from
Bad to Worse.
Wonderful Change m One Night.
In a Month Face Was
Clean as Ever.
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
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.

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

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
Mrs. Lydia James, of Ogdensburg, Wis.,

say that the 'Golden Medical Discovery

sick in bed with liver complaint and kid

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

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
