■'iUfao-Yang says that a fierce battle has
beeq fought at Hoang. near Liao-Yang
between a force of Russians numbering

'" ■ Although the Russians struggled val
iantly they were compelled to retreat be

iV . nnese, and left 350 dead upon the field.
" The Mapancse showed great bravery.
.The battle ended in complete route of
Russians. The loss of Japanese is un

California Heiress Jumps From
Window In Waldorf Astoria
NEW YORK, July 9.—Miss Bertha
Dolbeer, twenty-five years of age, of
San Francisco, said to have been the
daughter of the late .S. F. Dolbeer, a
millionaire, committed suicide today
by juming from a ninth-floor window
of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Nearly
every bone in her body was broken and
death was instantaneous* - •
Miss Dolbeer and her cousin, Miss
Marion Warren, also of San Francisco,
had been at the Waldorf since June
30 last, when they returned from a
trip to- Europe, taken for Miss Dol
beer's health.
Since her father's death a year ago,
it is said. Miss Dolbeer has suffered
from melancholia and had needed con
stant watching". Today she complained
of the heat in her room and went into
the corridor. Miss Warren follow*!,
but in passing the door the hem of her
skirt caught in the hinge. While she
was releasing the skirt Miss Dolbeer
reached an open window, and when
Miss Warren looked up, according to
a statement she made to the police,
Miss Dolbeer was poised on the win
dow ledge. An instant later she had
Miss Dolbeer's father was a million
aire lumberman and real estate owner.
When he died he left the daughter
about $5,000,000 in property and se
curities, including the Dolbeer man
sion. The young woman's mother died
when she was a child, and Miss Dol
beer was her father's constant com
panion from childhood.
Young Man Not Believed When He
Said He Had Taken Poison
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., July 9.—"1'1l I
be dead in thirty minutes," announced^ I '
Harry Furman while eating dinner
with his family at Westmont, a sub
urb of Camden, yesterday afternoon.
His father remarked that there was
no appearance .of the prediction being
"Well, I've taken enough Paris green
to kill ten men," responded the son;
"so give me another help of meat."
All laughed, none believing other
than that'young Furman was joking.
"You'll find me dead on my bed," he
said, rising and going up stairs.
An hour later a member of the fam
ily went to the young man's room. He
was dead.
Coroner Litchfleld, who made an in
vestigation, was unable to learn any
cause for the suicide. Furman was
twenty-seven years old, unmarried and
in good health.
They Carry Young Men's Garments
Away and Stop the Practice
YORK, Pa., July 9.—Opposed to their
friends bathing on Sunday, several
young women of Wrightsville, near
here, descended on eight men swim
ming in the Susquehanna river and
decamped with their clothes.
Shivering and bemoaning their hard
luck, the men were compelled, to stay
in the water until a friend passed an
hour later. They told him their trou
bles and he volunteered to .find their
missing garments. After a long' search
the clothing was discovered under a
lumber pile some distance from the
. Eight young men will hereafter at
tend church services in company with
their girl friends on Sunday.
William H. Shaver Renews His Youth
in Running Stream
CHATHAM, N. V., July 9.—Chat
ham's oldest resident, William H.
Shaver, aged nearly ninety years, went
swimming in the village mill pond a
day or two ago. Cautiously he waded
in until he reached a sufficient depth, I
and then "ducked over." He tried to !
swim but the decrepitude of years, j
with its accompanying ailments, made
that impossible, but he got a good
bath in the swiftly running water, and
avowed that it made him feel a dozen
years younger.
On March 4, 1865, he enjoyed a swim
in the same stream, and had not been
in the water since. He remembers the
day perfectly, and describes it as being
unusually warm, people wearing straw
hats and no coats. Mr. Shaver says he
expects to go swimming with the "oth
er boys" several times this summer.

Sloth Bear, Jealous Because
Hyena Got Larger Piece of
. Meat, Starts Fierce Row
NEW YORK, July 9.—One small bit
of beef about the size of a man's hand
started a big fight on the Atlantic
transport liner Minnetonka, which
reached pier 39, North river, yester
Besides a hundred saloon passengers
and several hundred immigrants, the
Minnetonka carried twenty-six cages
containing sixty wild beasts consigned
to Frank C. Bostock, Coney Island.
•Except that with every motion of tho
ship the colony made night hideous
with its howls, all went well till supper
time last Saturday, when Head Keeper
Johnson, with five assistants, started
along the double line of cages, bearing
pails filled with meat.
Fight Among Hyenas
An assistant keeper poked a bigger
bit of meat to Sligo, a hyena, than to
his cagemates. Rummy Tawny and
Billy, sloth bears. Billy resented this
and tried to get the meat.
The three wild beasts, trained to do
everything but keep their tempers,
fought fiercely, rolling over and over.
The noise of the combat excited all the
other animals to frenzy. Caesar, the
900-pound man-eating tiger that has
killed six keepers in ten years, woke
up and shook the vessel with his roars.
Leopards added to the din. Monkeys
squeaked and chattered and every pas
senger aboard trembled.
Put. in Another Cage
The keepers used steel-tipped bars in
trying to separate the beasts, but it
didn't work. The captain said he
would shoot the beasts if there was
danger of their getting out.
It was not until a cage was wheeled
up to th.c three original fighting ani
maJs and the hyena, prodded with red
hot irons, was separated from the sloth
bears, that the trouble was over. Two
trained monkeys died of fright.
When four days out a big polar bear
escaped from his cage. Jacob Men
nart, a ten-year-old passenger, saw
the animal poke his nose up a com
panionway, and there was a scattering
of passengers for safety. The bear
was lassoed, beaten and cuffed "back
into the cage, but not before he had
clawed a deck hand's leg.

Stories of Fabulous Winnings
Are Sent Out From Hot
Springs, Ark.
HOT SPRINGS, Ark., July 9.—Now ;
that the "big season" of the Hot
Springs sporting fraternity is about at
an end, the gambling-house and pool
room proprietors are taking time to fig
ure up their, winnings and plan im
provements in their palaces of chance
for the coming year.
It is seldom that stories of big win
nings at faro or roulette or of big coups
made in the pool rooms trickle over the
wires to the East from the American
Monte Carlo, but that is only because
big winnings and big losings are taken
as a matter of fact in Hot Springs. To
use a trite term, Monte Carlo is a two
spot compared with Hot Springs, and
it is only the glamor of distance and of
Europe that makes the capital of the
little island of Monaco famous.
People go to Hot Springs for two
things—to take the baths and to gam
ble. To some the flirting with chance
is a side issue to the waters, but it is
one of the few cities in the United
States where the lid is off, everything
is wide open and license has full sway.
Women Good Gamblers
To the vfsitor the most interesting of
all the characters who come here to try
their hands with Dame Fortune are the
women. For they do gamble, and they
are not pikers, either. Some of them
show the greatest nerve imaginable
and will pla~y the limit, even when that
is the" sky above.
Several months ago a woman who
called herself Ethel Gaynor and was
1 said to hail from Oklahoma City, start
ed in to play the wheel at the Arkan
saw club. She spotted and starred the
numbers'like an old-timer, and every
thing seemed to come her way. The
checks piled up in front of her until
they began to get in her way, and then
she asked the dealer how much she had
"About $10,000, madam," replted the
"Oh, have I?" she asked, and then,
womanlike, she threw her hands up
and fainted away.
Another woman who created a sen
sation while she was here was said to
be the wife of a clerk in a prominent
New York hotel. Everywhere she went
she carried a large bunch of American
Beauty roses, and owing to this foible
was called "the American Beauty." She
lost $15,000 playing the wheel one night
in the Kentucky club, then yawned,
said she was hungry, picked up her
bouquet and walked out as noncha
lantly as though she had been only a
Another little affair that was the talk
of the town until something else came
along was the banquet given by "Cous

to seven women friends at the Arkau?

alone was $1,100, and John J. Ryan,
