WHAT MAKES
The OH! Idnneod -Oil! Jurt pure linseed
Oil! That's fill I nothing that zmxn
lias been abld to invert can m.'.ke anypaint
wear longer than the Unseed cii in
-whichit is mixed.
If everybody- understock t'e-t oil is tho
t>nly thing: about puiat t.-.-.t '.rears, there
"would be iiq. sals tor cheap ready-mixed
paints. A prominent educator wrote us that
bis friend, a college president, had been
swindled by using on his f.uc residence a
ready mixed paint advertised as first-class.
He asked what was wrong with the paint
and said: "When the rain had soaked it
thoroughly, it was the most miserable looking
thing ycu ever saw."
There was nothing wrong with the paint
pigments, if they had strong color and
'covering body. But the oil in the paint
was not pure llccecd oil. If it had been,
no rain would have "soaked" it. as pure
linseed oil paint doos not take up
moisture. "Waterproof oil clothing is cloth
coated with linseed oil: and no pure linseed
oil paint will wash off as long as the oil
lasts. You can't rub dry paint on a building
and make it stay there no matter how good
the dry paint. Why mix white lead with
linseed oil if it's the lead that wears? Why
not mix it with water?

Ir. the armies cl' the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries ike custom of casting
'.ot-s to decide what soldiers sliottld
be punished for the offenses of all was
? .common. At Winchester. England. In
> IC-13. complaint was made that after
St. the surrender there had been unfair
a- plundering. Sis soiiiiers wore tried
cad found guilty. an 1 it was decided
? by lot which one of the six should he
hanged. At Tangier' in T->G3. and
again in 1GG3. two soldiers had to east
90. dice on a drumhead, and he who threw
? the least was executed. Thomas May's
translation of Barclay's "Icon Anl?
tnorum" gives a curious story of this
sort. Speaking of English courage, he
says that during the war in the Netherlands
some soldiers of the Spanish
party were taken prisoners by the
? Dutch, who decided to make reprisals
for the previous cruelty of their enemies.
Out of four and twenty men

? says May, "anil the. prisoners were
commanded to draw their fortunes?
whoever should draw a blank was to
>t. escape, but whoever slioukl draw n
black lot was to be hanged presently.
? "They were all." says May, "possess
ed with a great apprehension of their
? present danger, especially one Spaniard.
Their pitiful wishes and tears i)
9. some of the standers by did move pity.
? in others laughter. There was bosichv
in that danger an Englishman, a common
soldier, who. with a careless countenance.
expressing no fear of death at
all. came boldly to the helmet anil drew
? his lot. Chance favored him; it was a
safe lot. Doing free himself from danger
he came to the Spaniard, who was
k" yet timorous and trembling to put his
s baud into the fatal helmet, and receiving
from him 10 crowns he entreated
the judges?oh. horrid audacity?that,
dismissing the Spaniard, they would
suffer him again to try his fortune."
May further relates that "the judges
consented to the madman's request,
who valued his life at so low a rate,
and he again drew a safe lot." May
3 seems rather to regret the second es'
cape of the foolhardy Englishman, .
whom he denounces as "a wretch unworthy
not only of that double, but i
oven nf n ssfmrle nreservation, who ?o
basely bud undervalued his lire."

I RUSSIA'S ACTION IN SINKING TH
KNIGHT COMMANDER IS
TAKEN QUITE SERIOUSLY.
LONDON", July 27.?The Britis
government is taking energetic actio
in the case of the sinking of the Bri
ish steamer Knight Commander b
the Vladlvostock squadron. All Infot
matiou received by the governmen
tends to establish in the olllcial mini
a belief that an outrage lias been com
m it ted for which no excuse exists ii
international law. Those aware o
the feelings of the ministry said las
night that all the members of the Cab
inct are in accord regarding the priii
ciple .01 the inviolability ol innoceu
neutral shipping, r.s well as upon tin
principle that a neutral ship cannoi
he destroyed even if carrying contra
band of war.
The demand which will be made
upon the Russian government will in
elude compensation to the owners ol
the ship and to the owners of the
goods on hoard the Knight Commander.
an apology for the action of the
Russian cruisers and an agreement
that instructions be given which will
prevent a repetition of such action.
British shipowners nro in arms over
the dangers which shipping is nowrunning
and are bombarding the government
with representations looking
to the thorough protection or their
interests.
Calls It Illegal.
Mr. Arthur Cohen, one of the counsel
for the British government in the
Alabama claims arbitration case, now
a judge of the Cinque Ports and standing
counsel for the University of Cambridge.
said last night:
"It is scandalous, this reckless seiztre
and destruction of neutral shipting
by Russian vessels. The sinking
tf the Knight Commander was totally
ilegal. Wheaton, in his work on in
ernational law, states explicitly that
f the prize Is a neutral siiip no ciruirustances
will justify her destruclon
before condemnation; that if the
'essel is destroyed, full compensation
rill be given to her owners; but that
nvners of contraband of war on board
he ship, if any, have no substantial
rround for complaint, because the detraction
of the vessel does not Injure
hem.
"Had the Knight Commander been
ondemned as a 'good prize' the ownrs
of the contraband cargo would
onsequently suffer no loss by the
Inking of the ship. Owners of neural
goods on ships arc entitled to
ompensation, as are the owners of
to vessel.
"Russia may advance the contention
tat the Knight Commander was carring
contraband of the character of
hicli hor owner was aware, and that ,
e, therefore, was guilty of an offence
,-ainst international law. This would
ot justify the sinking of the Knight
ommander, nor would the unwilling- ]
2SS of the Russian commander to rejce
the complement of his squadron 1
order to furnish a prize crew be
1 excuse for such action. That was
e misfortune of the Russians.
Time For Declaration.
"It seems to me to be time for the
nited States and Great Rritain to
y that they will not allow this ex- ?
nsion of the rules relating to con- t
aband of war or this extraordinary I
terference with neutral commerce, t
"I continue to feel convinced that v
issia does not want trouble with t
her nations and will order a more i
ict observance of international lavenergetic
remonstrances be addressto
her," r
Mr. Balfour, replying to a question p
the House of Commons yesterday u
regard to the sinking of the Knight a
mmander, said inquiries were being tl
ide on the subject, but. he was not p
: in a position to make a statement. w
Replying to another question . the
Ime Minister said the government la
s not aware of any convention con- n
ded in 1901 between Turkey and
ssia providing special conditions
the passage of the Dardanelles
special Russian ships.
Ir. Balfour, while disclaiming that
was giving an authoritative decis- 1
, said that he believed the'deelaraa
of Paris in 1850 contemplated the
ilition of privateering and the decition
that a neutral flag covers an ai
?(]
imy's merchandise except when
traband of war.
)ealing with the question of
=!Hip.r the Russian volunteer ves- ht
i. being private ships commission- ex
by the State, were different mate- ra
iy from privateers, Mr. Balfour C;
I that the whole question of the m,
us of tho volunteer ships was now hi
er discussion between Great Brit- be
and Russia and that it would not go
desirable to discuss that point in w<
House of Commons at present. a
he Gazette on March 3 published kn
tatement communicated to the an
.ish by the Russian* government pr<
ing forth regulations on tho sub- tin
ject of. captured vessels and Indicating
various exceptional cases under ?
which a commander of a Russian
cruiser would be entitled to burn or
sink a captured vessel, after taking
off the crew, passengers and papers.
These regulations had been in ex-y
istence in lS9o, and it is believed f-ord
ILansdowne did not protest against v
them on this occasion. The newspapers
this morning, therefore, counsel
patience, especially as the Russian.
E ?<|gvernment , in view of the news' from
Sp seat of war, must have much to
try its temper at the present moment.
A majority of the morning newspapers.
however, print editorials in
an angry strain on the further report h
ed seizures of vessels by the Rusn
sinus and the delay in the release of
c" the- Malacca..
J Nation's Temper Rising. ..
The Standard says: "We do not.
c wish to embarrass the government ib-. '
1 the delicate negotiations, but the Ministers
should realize thai the temper
1 of the nation is rising. Where is the
f Mediterranean fleet and the China.
1 squadron? What Is the use of keeping
a navy if wo are to he subjected
to such indignities?"
1 The Morning Post, in a. like strain,
* declares: "Peace is not alw&jfsjpreserved
by being afraid of war. which
" is plain English of being afraid of complications."
' According to the daily Telegraph.
| the delay in reaching a satisfactory
settlement with Russia is due to the
' tragic event oi\ the sinking of the
Knight Contraander, which, it has rea!
son to helieve, was caused by a torpedo.
and which, the. newspaper says, ,/
has raised a set of questions altogether
different from ''m > n uaunrig Iiti?- f*
status of the volunteer fleet.
Kittle further news has reached. Bondon,

the progress of hostilities in the far
