Chinese Accidentally Loses

THE FINEST P
In Her NavyThe Boat was Blown
CD by Her Own Torpedoes Japanese
Advance on PortArthur in the Interest
Of Peace
WASHINGTON Nov 221l1e Chinese
have lost the finest and most powerful
vessel of their navy the great battle
ship Chen Yuen winch stood the brunt
of the fighting at Yalu The cable re
ceived at the navy department today
states that the Chen Yuen in leaving
Wei Hai Wei harbor on the 18th Inst
accidentally struck a torpedo She was
beached but was rendered useless for
lack of docking facilities In despair
at the catastrophe the commander
Commodore Lin committed suicide
The Chen Yuen was a itaeniGcent
fighting machine very much liKe our
own battleship Maine She was built
in Europe in 1882 ami was of 7450
tons displacement It woud seem that
the ship tell a victim to one of the tor
pedoes planted by the Chinese them
aehes to guard the entrance or Wei
dpi Wei which was the last of the
reat naval strongholds of the empire
save Port Arthur now tottering to its
11Jt
It was well that Commodore
Lin committed suicide for be
would doubtless have been decapitated
13 the result of his error it 13 be
lieved here this loss has deprived the
Chinese navy of its offensive power
There remains the Ting Yuen a power
ful battleship and a few lesser iron
dads buy without the aid of the Chen
Yuen they would hardly dare to make
an offensive campaign and probably
will remain in port to assist in the de
fense
Tne departure of the Chinese cus
coma chief 11 Japan is regarded by
ilh lags here as the result of a Japan
ese demand for a direct offer from
China Toe Da Ting mentioned in the
cable is said to be Dietring a German
who occupies the position of commis
sioner of customs That he should be
sent as the peace envoy is accounted
tor by officials on the ground that an
indemnity would probably be secured
ou the customs receipts of China It
has been one ot Japans contentions
that she would expect to receive the
customs receipts of the big Chinese
ports in case an indemnity was ar
ranged
It is said the Chinese envoy will
probably be the guest ot United States
Minister Dun at Tokio Chinese offi
cials have been accorded every cow
resy The advance on Port Arthur is re
garded as having an important bear
ing on the peace negotations Lieu
enant Miyoka naval attache of the
Japanese legation here says the ad
vance movement has been most cau
tious as the ground for forty miles
around Port Arthur has been found
fairly alive with powder mines con
nected with electric wires to Port
Arthur
Three days ago the Japanese were
within a days march of the fortress
but it was neces ary to send ahead a
email scouting party to pick a route
away from the mines and electric
wires The regular roads cannot be I
used for the artillery as it would have
been blown up and accordingly the
big guns have to be moved in circuit
ous routes through woods and moras
ses It is regarded as likely this cau
tious march will have been completed
today and the Japanese legation is
hourly expecting word that the dbGeive
blow has been struck though a long
siege may be necessary as the fortress
has one of the strongest defenses of
modern times It is believed that a
Japense success would quickly close
the pee negotiations but that a re
pulse would impel China to hold off
CHINAS OFFER
WASHINGTON Nov 22In accord
ance with the suggestion of Japan the
state department has notified Minis
itis Dun at Tokio and Denby at Pekin
to transmIt at y direct offer Uhina may
wish to make to Japan t
The Cuineso delegation here is not
notifie as to what course its govern
ment will take
The associated press cable from
Japan states however that China has
intimated her willingness to pay an
indemnity of one hundred million taela
and iia addition all the war expenses
Incurred by Japan As the war ex
I psiies will reach one hundred and
ty mulion table the total offer of
China would be two hundred and fifty

MYSTERIES OF MEDICINE
Doctors Know What Drugs Will Do but
Not Why They Do It
When a person take a dose of medi
cine said a doctor he never stops to
consider what a wonderful provider na
ture is When you consider that we are
able to give drugs which will go though
the entire system without having any ef
fect upon any part or organ until it
conges perhaps to some nerve upon
which it expends all its force it is in
deed a miracle of the most wonderful
kind We dont know why it does it but
we know what it does The progress in
materia medica has been wonderful By
proviugs the specific effects of drugs
have been discovered so that they can
be given with specific results Medicine
is gradually emerging from the dark
valley of guesswork into the bright sun
light of science
Tho modern physician does not make
a mixture of seven or eight drugs hop I
ing that some one of them will produce
the effect desired Eo does not take
chances upon striking a remedy one in
seven lie knows now just what drug
will produce the results ho wants and
he prescribes that I attended a man
tho other day who had not been sick fo i
20 or 30 years I went into his room
and after observing his symptoms asked
for half a glass of water into which I
dropped a small pellet a triturate The
old man looked at me after I had given
him a dose of it and then smiled
Well doctor he said you treat
ed me for this complaint when I was
sick many years ago and I must say the
remembrance of the taste of the medi
cine you gave me then is still vivid I
dont think that a person could have
mixed a more horrible concoction than
that was Now you treat me for the
same disease and the drug is almost
tasteless How do you account for that
Progress I replied And progress
it isl I Every day increases our knowl
edge of drugs and our power to alleviate
suffering and save human life Pitts

AN AMUSING ADVENTURE I
Stupid Corporal an Embarrassed Colo
nel and a Tactful Woman
A superior officer of the B garri
son was somo time ago the hero of a
most amusing adventure Colonel Z
had received from Mme V an in
vitation to dinner but on the day ap
pointed and just as he was about to
start he was seized with a violent at
tack of neuralgia and decided to forego
the pleasure in store for him The colo
nel wrote a letter of apology called his
orderly and said f
Guy yon will give this letter to
Mme V and then go and fetch me
my dinner
Here tho plot commences Guy set
off after carefully secreting the letter
in his breast pocket along with his to
bacco pouch Ho arrived at Mme
V s delivered his message and
stood as rigid as a statue The lady of
the house was surprised and inquire
what ho was waiting for Guy replied
The colonel told me to fetch him
his dinner
Mme V saw the mans mistake
gave certain orders and the servants
handed the faithful linesman a set of
dishes emitting fragrant odors More
over Mme V slipped a half bottle
of champagne into the soldiers pocket
and said
You will servo this to the colonel at
dessert
Guy came back and upon my word
the restaurant seemed to have provided
such a host of good things that the colo
nel got up and took his seat at tho table
Over the soup he slowly began to recover
his appetite to his no small surprise
The side dishes made him quite raven
oas with tho entrees his pain disap
peared he was stupefied at the roast
meat and dumfounded at tho game and
still his wonder grew at the marvelous
dishes supplied by his chophouse keeper
At the dessert tho orderly obeying his
instructions set the bottle of champagne
on the table He was asked for an ex
planation when everything came out
The colonel in despair thought the mat
t ter over and then gave his orderly 10
mcs telling him to buy a bunch of
tfQJYerB and present it frqm him to
Mme V Then our colonel satis
fied that he had done his best under the
trying circumstances settled down in
an easy chair and composed himself to
sleep An hour and a half later the door
opened and Guy walked in and gravely
deposited two 6 frano pieces on the ta
ble The colonel questioned him with
somo anxiety
The lady paid for the nosegay JI
said the honest warrior apparently well
pleased with the general turn of affairs
Mme V on receiving the bou
quet had given the soldier 5 francs by
way of a tip on receiving which the
latter simply replied
It isnt 5 francs please maam it
is 10 francs
Colonel Z was confined to his bed
for three days to the great alarm of the
Whole of the garrisonProgres Blustra
In Paris it is gravely told that boxes
provided with flits are attached to tomb
stones Into them are dropped the cards
of remembering friends who make tb
