Because one sur vives a dose of poison, it is is no reason that poison is good or harmless. IT IS REASONABLE, if a badly polluted water causes severe and fatal'disease, that slightly impure water may slowly undermine the health hy being the cause of a host of ailments and inabilities of body for which the suf ferer finds no apparent cause.

At 2o'clock : 011 the afternoon of the 14th the British! 1 and Americans entered the gate near the ! legations and met with only slight resist i ance. The Japanese met more serious op j position at the upper east gate all day. At midnight on the 14th they blew up the gate and entered the city Many ! Chinese were killed. The people in the ; legations were well hut somewhat starved, j Minister Conger said: "They tried to j annihilate us the day liefore you got in. ; Prince Ching, president of the tsung li ! y amen, sent word that his officers had j received orders to cease firing j 011 us under pain of death. At 7 ; o'clock the evening of the same day the Chinese opened fire and this continued ! all night. If the relieving column had not arrived when it did we should proha ! hly have succumbed.

Though taken somewhat hy sur prise the Dupont faction, or regular re publicans, decided to "fight the devil with fire" and accordingly called a state convention for the nomination of state candidates to he held here today. The Addicks faction, in order to comply with some of the provisions of the election law which were overlooked in the hurry of their recent convention, are t-i hold u second convention next Wednesday. It is also given out that they will then' he ready to consider any overtures that may lx- made hy the Dupont leaders looking to a reconciliation and the restoration of harmony in the republican rauks. The sentiment of the regular republican dele gates who are gathering for tomorrow's convention does not seem to indicate that they will yield to Addicks.
