PURIFICATION OF WATER
W ATER is no more necessary to life
than pure water is to health. Be
cause persous have ilratik ques
tionable water and still live is no evi
dence that they would not have lived
la tter on pure water. 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.
When a citv is supplied with only
doubtfully pure water, no family should
he without a private filter.

J New York, Aug. 21.—The Herald's
; Pekin dispatch of August 17, via Shang
hai, August 20, says:
I Contrary to the agreement of allied
^ commanders the Russians advanced ami
j occupied the first door of the east gate
: early in the morning of the 14th, but fail
I ed to force tlie second door. 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

lost seven marines killed ami 15 wound
I ed and one child died. The w hole movc
ment is purely a governmental one The
Boxers are only a pretense, having no
guns. The confidential advisor of ti e
empress dowager was leader of the im
perial troops here. In 11 days over 2000
shells fell among us."
The American marines under Captain
Myers held a position on the wall
throughout the siege. Upon the allies
passing the wall the Chinese retreated.
The imperial family left four days ago
for Shan Si province. It is estimated
that the strength of the Pekin garri
son was loixi men. The legation
was urged to leave the city under
an escort of Chinese troops, hut they re
fused, fearing treachery. The American
losses in action were greatest. Captain
Reilly was killed. In an interview Sir

"It is considered by many as quiteeer
taiu that the purchase of the projierty ol
the Ilwaco Railway & Navigation com
pany hy the O. R. & N. company will lie
consumated in the near future, and that
a railroad will lie built by the O. R. & N.
from Frankfort to Ilwaco. This will give
tlie O. R. & N. company control of the
seaside travel butweeu Portland und
North Beach. Behind this is a prospect
of the O. K. & N. building a road from
Portland to Frankfort. It is known that
L. Gerlinger, the Vancouver brewer, has
secured the right-of-way for a railroad
down the Washington shore of the Co
lumbia and that a survey of this line has
been made this summer. It is surmised
that this survey has been made in the
interest of the O. R. & N., and it isproh
able that if at any time the O. K. & N.
is forced to haul wheat to the mouth of
the river it will, by building tl- road and
a bridge across the Columbia able to
do so over its own line."

Not So Bad.
Sheboygan, Wis , Aug 21.—A careful
review of the havoc caused hy yesterday's
tornado shows damage far less than at
first thought. The number of huildiugs
destroyed and badly damaged is not over
75 and the pecuniary loss is in the neigh
lairhood of $nxi,o.xi. The most remarka
ble feature is that no lives were lost.

gives some figures to show the burdens
which he claims militarism will impose
upon the people.

Delaware Republicans in a Tangle.
Wilmington, Del., Aug. at.—'Though
Delaware is a little state the republicans
within its confines deem three conven
tions for the nomination of their state
ticket none too many. The Addicks fac
tion held a "snap" convention at Dover
two weeks ago and named their candi
lates for governor aud other state offi
cers. 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. It will lie
for Addicks and his lieutenants, they de
clare, to say whether they will lie willing
to withdraw their ticket and come in auil
support the ticket to lie nominated to
