The person or persons who had relieved him of his money even took his col lar and tie; in fact, about the only thing they failed to relieve him of was the effect of the previous night's dis sipation, which he still had with him when he entered a Wabasha street sa loon fo inquire the way to the police station, where he reported his mis fortune.

PEKIN, July 19.—According to diplo mats here, the greatest factor in the Eastern situation is the increasing danger of war between Russia and Japan. They believe it is becoming plain that Russia is willing to fight Japan if convinced that no other power will assist her. The Russians are con fident of their-ability to easily defeat Japan and are said to be anxious to settle definitely her position in Eastern politics and end her ambition to op pose Russia's progress in Manchuria. The belief is attributed to the Japan ese that the Russian policy is to at tempt to placate Great Britain and America and provoke Japan into be ginning hostilities. They regard Rus sia's consent to opening ports in Man churia, the czar's promised visit to England, and the occupation of the Corean border as parts of that policy. Russia's activity on the Yalu river is more irritating to Japan than the re tention of Manchuria, and all Japan ese officials in China speak of war as a probability. THE NEWS INDEXED. PAGE I.

Special to The Globe. MISSOULA, Mont., July 19.—Most persons have a horror of coffins, but not so Mrs. Frank Henkle, living a short distance from this city. When she appeared at a local undertaker's today and asked to be shown the stock she was as unconcerned as if she were go ing in to purchase a spool of thread. "You see," said she, directing her re marks to the undertaker, "my doctor has told me that I have heart disease and consumption and that I am likely to die at any moment. This being true, I desire to pick out for myself a coffin in which I am to be buried." Mrs. Henkle was accompanied by her husband, who apparently saw nothing out of the ordinary in helping his wife to select her own coffn. "How do you like this one, dear?" he asked, directing the attention of the woman to a rich mahogany casket with silver trimmings. "It is very pretty," replied the woman, "but the price is too high. Goodness knows that illness is always expensive, and I am sure you do not want to add to the expense by making me take a coffin asTich as that one." "Well, suit yourself; you are the per son who will have to use it," said, the husband, as he smiled at his wife and patted her on the shoulder. Mr. and Mrs. Henkle looked over all the coffins In the shop and finally pick ed out one that the woman thought would suit her. "The doctor tells me I will die in side of two months," said the woman as she prepared to depart, "so I want you to save this coffin (laying her hands on the one she had picked out) for me." The undertaker promised that he would save it. CIVILIAN WHIPS THE NATIONAL GUARD Knocks Out Eight and Is Saved by Officers From Mob of Bluecoats. ST.

In the vast palace there is a hushed calm of expectation, the only apparent wakeful souls being the Swiss guards. The doctors and attendants of the dying pontiff speak in whispers and move noiselessly about, so that from the sick room no sound comes except the heavy breathing of the un conscious pope or his occasional cries for Pio Centra and Dr. Lapponl. His tone is one of fear, as though he felt POSTMISTRESS IS HER OWN DETECTIVE Traces Postal Swindlers, but a Cautious Police Lets Them Escape. Special to The Globe. SIOUX PALLS, S. D., July 19.—Aft er having become the victim of two short-change men, Mrs. Young, post mistress at Running Water, turned de tective and traced the rascals to Tyn dall. Had it not been for the fact that the local officers were not certain as to their jurisdiction in the case, believing that It was a matter for the 4Jnited States authorities, as it involved pos tal funds, the men would have been captured. A stranger entered the postofflce while Mrs. Young was alone. He pur chased a stamp, and, after the usual fruitless search in his pockets for pen nies, tendered Mrs. Young a $20 bill. He had received his change, when he suddenly made the discovery that he had a small amount of change and asked her to give him back the bill and take the change. He laid a $10 bill on the window, and after taking his twenty, commenced to count out the silver change Mrs. Young had given him, ostensibly for the purpose of giving it back to her. Just ot this juncture another stran ger, who proved to be a confederate, entered the postofflce and asked Mrs. Young for information about a certain money order office. The name was an unfamiliar one, and Mrs. Young was compelled to consult a postal guide, finding that there was no such postofflce in the state. When she turned to where the stamp purchaser had stood she discovered that he had disappeared, together with his own money and $10 of Uncle Sam's postal funds. She determined to do a little detect ive work on her own account, and found the crooks at Tyndall, where a picnic of the Woodmen was being held. She readily recognized the men, who also got a glimpse of her. The officer who accompanied her declined to arrest the crooks until he had con sulted attorneys as to his jurisdiction, and, of course, when he returned the two swindlers had made their escape. This is the first time that more than one man has attempted to victimise South Dakotans with this game, and it is thought the two men may attempt to work he same scheme on officials at other smal postoffices.
