An impresison prevails that while j.jj e ear iy victories in the present war may g 0 the Japanese, the final tri uiuph of Russia is inevitable. It is maintained, quite naturally, that in a contest between a large nation of 139, 000,000 people, with a war strength of over 3,000,000 men,anti a small nation of 44,000,000 people, with a war strength of about 600,000 men, there can be but one result. The larger power will overcome the smaller bv sheer force of weight and numbe-s. Were Japan a European power, situat ed within easy reach of Russia, this conclusion might be warranted. It should be remembered, however, that Russia must or aduct this w 7 ar from the main base of supplies. It is nec essary to transport men and material from 3000 to 4000 miles over a single railroad with only one track. It is over this long une of communication that men, animals, artillery, ammuni tion and general war supplies must be carried, and it is easy to see that wag ing war at a point so remote from the national military base must be an ex tremely difficult undertaking. Japan, on the other hand, has only to transport its men and war matreials a few hundred miles and it is in the enemy's country. With its acknowl edged naval strength it can easily keep up its lines of communication, and sending reinforcements or needed sup plies is a matter of a comparative few uours. Russia must trust to a long single track railroad for everything needed in the campaign, and with that line cut or interrupted, there must be a halt. It has been said that even now it will take several months before a largo army and its impediment can be thrown from European Russia into Manchuria, nad with a Japanese army breaking the line of communications, the Russians must be at a decided dis advantage.

T> a BRINGING Every Catarrh sufferer dreads the coming of winter, for with the first breath of the "ice-king" this miserable disease is fanned into life and all the disgusting symptoms return. The nostrils are stopped up and the throat can be kept clear of mucous secretions only by continual hawking and spitting. Catarrh is a nuisance and source of annoyance, not only COULD NOT HEAR THE TICK OP A to the one who has it, but everybody else. The thick, yellow discharge from the head produces a feeling of personal defilement, and the odor of the breath is almost intolerable. The catarrhal poison brings on stomach troubles and affects the Kid neys and Bladder. It attacks the soft bones and tissues of the head and throat, causing total or partial deafness, the loss of smell, and giv ing to the voice a rasping, nasal twang. No part of the body is secure from its ravages. Catarrh makes you sick all over, for it is a dis ease of the blood, and circulates all through the system, and for this reason, sprays, washes, inhalers, powders and salves have proven failures.
