In the minds of those who are studying the outcome of the war in tlie far East, the ouestion is. "What will the end be I There are some who think we can already fore cast the issue and do so with certainty. Everything points to the early fall of Port Arthur. When this happens, the Japanese will have won half the battle and possibly the larger half. More than a month ago Gen. Dragomiroff advised that Port Arthur be abandoned and the fleet destroyed, but Gen. Kuropatkin thought other wise; he now sees that the stronghold is doomed. Sebastopol held out foi a vear against an allied armv but the mehtods of war and the modern in struments of destruction have advancd within the last GO years. After leaving Port Arthur, what will the Russians do" It is sup posed that thev will retreat to Mukden and lure the Japanese after them. Will the Japanese follow or will they content themselves with holding and fortifying the line "across the bases f the Korean Peninsula of Liao-Tung, and defying the Russians to put them out? In possession ot this line thev would be in possession of all Korea and of all maritime Manchuria. Would not they be in possession of all for which they have really been fighting? With not merely the Gulf of Pe-ehi-Li and Korea Bay, but with the whole Pacific ocean, closed to Russia, might not Japan claim the victory of which she possessed the spoils? If Russia wished to continue the war, would it not behoove her to attempt to dislodge the Japanese, while Japan could well afford to "stand pat"? DEATH BY HIS OWN ACT TIT r vr, i. . it; - V. & Thank You! Fred Hull Crept Into Tank ta Sleep Off Effects of a Protracted The Fumes of Naphtha Overcame Him and He Wag Unable to Get Out. Rev. George R. Jones is to be substituted at many of the Chautau- quas this year instead of Rev. Sam Jones. He is a southern gentleman and is recommended bv Mr. Jones. The latter said recently: "Mr. Stew art is better than I am." Many people who have heard Stewart say that Jones told the truth when he said this. Good for Jones.

Shelve is not .just the word. Promote would be better. Yes, the Democrats will attend to this mat ter with "neatness and dispatch" If ore sailing "up" the saline stream. Some one has said that simplicity is a sign of greatness. The Logan-s nort Renorter savs that Dr. Hushes, the new president of De Pauw Uni- versity, shows his greatness in his alility to put great thoughts into lit tle words. Dr. Hughes gave the commencement address at Logansport and "caught the people." Hammond, Ind., June 2. The Hull ' murder mystery at Whiting has been1 exploded and an ending made of the sensational stories surrounding the death of Freu Hull. After a coroner'3 Inquiring covering three days, and an autopsy, three physicians decided that there was no proof of murder, and the coroner reported that death was due to asphyxiation. It was shown that Hull had been dissipating freely for some time. During the fag end of his spree he borrowed $20 from a friend and he told another friend that the police were pursuing him because they thought he had stolen the money. Circumstances point conclusively to the fact that Hull went to the Pennsyl vania railway yards and removed the cap of the naphtha tank, after which he crawled in, readjusted the cap and laid down and went to sleep. During his slumber he was asphyxiated by the powerful fumes. The bruises on his face and head were shown to have been caused by contact with bolts and rivets in the tank while the car was in transit. Not a single arrest has been made in the case, as Chief Collins of , the Whiting police has never doubted ' that Hull's death was due to accident. ' FURTHER EVIDENCE The retiring firm of D. C. Beggs & Cd. take this method ot thaak'ng the public for the substantial manner in which they have extended their patronage and friendship to The Railroad Store in the past; and at the same time bespeak for the new owners, Messrs. Game & Browrt, the same liberal support and friendship that has so materially helped to bring this store to the front. The policy of the store shall be, first of all:- Goods of strictly dependable qual ities at the very lowest prices; and careful attention will be paid to those things that will make trading with us a pleasure, namely courteous trsatment to all; square dealing; no misrepresentation; all goods marked in plain figures; one pnee to everyone; and YOUR MONEY BACK IF YOU WANT IT. We hope a continuation of the liberal patronage extended to us will also be given to the new firm. Again we say, THANK YOU ! 2). C SSeqgs & Co., THE RAILROAD STORE. Special Notice !

In his speech on the Gettysburg battle field, he said: "He is a poor American. who, looking at this held, does not teel within lumselt a deep reverence for the nation's past and a higher purpose to make the nation's future rise level to her past." CAMBRIDGE CITY The La Fayette Courier says: "The latest hard-luck story is tele- granned from ii art torn v itv, Indiana, wnere another wise and circum spect hen is reported to be laying petrified eggs." Petrified eggs are about as useful and much less offensive than some of the ones coming from the packers.
