PORT ARTHUR SIEGE Eastern Gibraltar Its Commander. . ort Artlinr is a fortress of extraor dinary strength, and it is commanded uy an oineer or exceptional courage uud determination. Lieutenant General Stpessol. But tbe strength of the for tress and the nerve of the commandant will he put to a severe test during the lope by the Japanese. It is said the Russians would have evacuated Port Arthur -some time ago had it not been for the loss of prestige they would have suffered in bo doing. However that may be, the Japanese now have it surrounded, and it is too late for such a move, so the fortress must stand a siege, and the temper of its commandant is such that it is not like Jy to surrender at the first politely preferred request of the enemy. Gen eral Stoessel in a proclamation to his garrison not long ago declared that they must fight to the finish, as lie would never give an order to surren der, ami he point nl out that there was no means of escape except by fight ing. "On three sides there is the sea," said the proclamation df the general, "and on the other will be the enemy." Thus the case will become desperate if the Russians are unable to send re enforcements to Port Arthur's relief before the store of provisions and am munition is exhausted. The Russian general staff claims that Ihere are supplies enough at Port Ar thur to last a year. After the Japanese had sent expeditions to attack the rail road running to I'ort Arthur and de stroy it at several points the Russians repaired the damage and at great risk sent one train load of ammunition over the line, so as to have as large a quantity of war material as possible on hand before the siege began in earnest.

If DO more than 1.000 men a week CMld be carried over the road, it would take about two years to get all these KHI.OOO men to the relief of Kuropat kiu and of L'ort Arthur. Vleksburg was invested by General Grant on May IS. 1S.'. and it surren dered on July 4 of the same year. The Confederates had about 2.Y0U0 effective men ft the beginning of the siege and rations for sixty days. The Ottoman army under Osiniin Pasha was be sieged by the Russians at Plevna from July IN to Dee. lO. 1ST", the final sur render of the 43.000 Turks who were taken prisoners being the critical event Of the Busso-Turkish war. General Stoessel distinguished him self in this war with Turkey, which he entered as a volunteer engineer in the engineer corps, rising rapidly in the service. He was with the Russians in the campaign against the Boxers in China in 1960 and accompanied the ex pedition for the relief of the beleaguer ed foreign legations in Peking. He planned an important movement, the success of which resulted in the cap ture of Tientsin. His command cram ed the Lutai canal on I pontoon bridge under fire and captured a number of batteries after losing 150 men. He was conspicuous in the remainder of the campaign, and his men fomrht side by side with the Japanese. Port Arthur, which is also known as Lushk'ow, was simply a ffTnt riUage until selected as a naval station by Li Hung Chaug, acting under the at ;. v of German engineers. The harlor is formed by an oval inlet of the eea and is about two miles lone by a mile wide. The high bluffs on each side areJfortl fled s.o strongly as to make it seeming ly impregnable.

It is said lhat very few of tne forts which were in existence dur ing the Chinese occupation and when it was captured by the Japanese dur ing the Cbino-Jaiau-war. new remain. 9. as th 'Russhins ImYe supplanted' them by strouger works and have also ex tended the defenses in various direc tions. Upon Hwangchin hill, at the east of the entrance and rising some 20o feet above the sea level, there is a battery of four sixty-three and a half ton guns. THE USE OF POWDER. it Will TSot Harm the Skin if Ton Also I e Cold Crrttiu. A. word about using powder. It's al right if you clean the face thoroughly every night with hot water and olive oil soap and every afternoon with cold cream and if always the powder is the very purest. With these precautious you can use any amount of it without injury and possibly, as the French beauty doctors insist, with benefit Actresses, who use not only powder, but rouge, grease paint and many oth er materials in their various "make ups," are yet famous for retaining the bloom of. youth into middle life and beyond it. May Irwin, who is the mother of grown children and yet has a smooth, pink skin which a girl of sixteen might envy, nttrihutes her ex ceptional complexion to the continual use of cold cream. It is the founda tion of every "makeup." and it is used with unfailing regularity night after night. Tor three or four hours the ac tress Is sure to have-a dressing of cold cream nourishing her complexion and keeping it fresh and elastic. The average woman, on the contrary, is apt to dab on her cream one night and forget it for two, with the result that her half starved complexion fades by forty and is parchment at fifty. Probably she attributes the loss of her freshness to the powder puff. But the real trouble was neglect of the cold cream. Use it plentifully and regular ly. and powder will do no harm. New York News. HOLLOW CHEEKS. What to Do to Make Them Become Kail and I'lump. Hollow cheeks are something no wo man wants, and it is not hard to rem edy them. To impart firmness facial gymnastics and massage, accompanied by a good prepared skin food or cocoa butter, will prove beneficial. The skin food is to be applied just before retir ing and the exercise to be indulged in loth night and morning for about ten minutes. To exercise the muscles first compress the lips, till the cheeks with air and work the jaws in a chewing movement, putting the cheeks outward as much as possible and keeping the mouth closed. Before applying the skin food pre pare the face to receive it by a thr omrh washing in warm soapy water, followed by a cold rinse. Dry and with the tips of the lingers stroke the mus cles cf the cheeks upward and back ward with gentle prssure after plac ing the thumbs at the base of the ears. Anoint the hollows with the cocoa but ter and execute a rotary movement, beginning by placing the finger tips at the corner of the mouth and following the jawbone to the temple. Start again at the corner of the mouth and work upward through the middle of the cheek to the outer corner of the eye. Repeat each movement ten times, keeping the pressure firm but gentle.

A new tyie of incandescent lamp filament has recently been perfected in Vienna, the essential feature of which b the use of bomitrate as material for the filament. The lamp gives a light similar to that of the ordinary fila ment, and tests have shown an average life of between 30O and 4O0 hours. It is Stated that the cost of manufacture Is not greater than that of the ordinary lamp. Up to the present only lamps of fifty and 100 volts and thirty-five Candle power have been produced. The most important feature of the lainp is Us high efficiency. A Mill Ron by Mire. David Huttou after some experiments In 1812 calculated that by equipping a thread factory with 10.000 mice and an equal number of miniature treadmills for them to operate he could secure a yearly profit of 13.000. In order to do this each mouse would have to run ten and a half miles every day. or over 3.S00 miles a year. He found that they could perform this task with ease. In deed one of his test mice ran eighteen miles a day. Mr. Button's untimely death is said to have prevented a prac tical test of the mice mill. and Gen. Stoessel, OPERATED ON THE KAISER. Dr. Schmidt. Who Took Growth From Emperor's Throat. Professor Dr. William Schmidt of Frankfurt - am - Main, who performed the operation on the throat of Em peror William of Germany, is the mos eminent laryngologist in the German empire. Wnen the emperor begnn to be troubled with hoarseness last fall, his physicians, after examining his throat at once urged the necessity of calling in a throat specialist, and Professor Schmidt was sent for. He informed his majesty that there was a growth on the left vocal cord which must at once be removed. Preparations were immediately made under the seal of secrecy, to perform the operation, and Professor Schmidt was in the new palace at Potsdam for several days without even the serv ants being aware of his presence. During the operation only the kaiser's physicians were present, the empress DB. MORITZ SCHMIDT. remaining in an adjoining room. The kaiser, it has since been learned, pre served the utmost coolness throughout the proceedings, and during the actual operation sat, as Professor Schmidt said afterward. like si wax model. No anaesthetics were adminiswrcd, and after a local application of cocaine the operator excised the growth with a special spoon shaped scissors made to catch what they cut off. The growth was pronounced by Professor Grth to be an absolutely tienlgnant polypus. ind not cancer, which the emperor feared. The other physicians connected with the case were Dr. von I.euthold and Dr. Ilberg. Professor Orth. who made the mi croscopical examination of the excised polypus, is the successor of Professor Virehow in the chair of anatomy at the Berlin university and is acknowl edged to be one of the greatest au thorities in the world on anatomical pathology. CULINARY CONCEITS. Boiled cabbage Is much sweeter when the water is changed in boiling. Don't throw away pieces of bread. Put them aside and dry or roll and save for scalloping or crumbling. Add one-quarter of a cup of boiling water to any rule for sponge cake to make it roll easily for jelly cake. To stir the yolks of eggs into soup or hot custard so that they will be smooth first beat them and then add a tea- spoonful of cold water. In making gingerbread, if the mo lasses uud butter are heated together before the other ingredients are added the cake will be nicer. Milk toast is improved by the addi tion of a little grated cheese Just be fore serving. Grated cheese is also a pleasant addition to a dish of mashed potatoes. rooking a Fowl. The only way in which a fowl is usually made tender enough to eat is to cut it up and cook as fricassee, roast chicken being considered possible only when one wishes to pay the extra price for young birds. It must, however, be the toughest of hens or roosters which does not succumb to the "iot roasting" process if carefully done. Prepare as for roasting and place in a pot deep enough to hold the fowl without crowd ing one-half pound of suet for three pounds of chicken. Cut up an onion and let it cook till brown, when add the chicken, covering tightly. It should simmer for six hours. Roast quickly for half an hour. Thimble.. A soreness in what is called the thim ble finger and even serious inflamma tion are sometimes caused by the use of cheap thimbles. These thimbles, which are onmpenod of lead or some thing equally injurious, may be tempt ing by reason of their low price, but they are not safe. Silver thimbles are the best, but for those to whom they prove too expensive notlfthg is better than thimbles of highly burnished steel. By a person who gains her liv ing with her needle a steel thimble is always liked, for it will outlast two or three of the more expensive silver ones. The Plea. are. of Mnirlnion. "Yon know very well." she said, "that honly married you because I felt sorry for you." "Heavens T' the brute answered. T have always supposed yon understood that I took yon U -cause I wanted a cook." Chicago Recoid-Uerald, People Talked About B OFRKE COCKRAN, the Now York lawyer, orator and con gressman who recently had a sensational colloquy in the house with Representative John Dal- zeii concerning rne allegation that Cockran was paid to make Republican speeenes in ij;. ubis tue uiggest neau I and the greatest voice in congress. He was born in Ireland, and seems to have inherited the elo quence of old time Irish orators. He is also a master of rep artee and a hard man to beat in de bate. In the Chi cago convention years ago, when Cockran made bis celebrated speech in opposition to the BOmKE COCKRAN. nomination of Grover Cleveland, he fairly excelled himself in the use of biting satire and sarcasm. One of the delegates. William U. Ilensel. attorney general of Pennsylvania, seemed an noyed by Cochran's speech against Cleveland and resented the threaten ing attitude of Tammany Hall. So he said to Cockran: "Pennsylvania comes here for Gro ver Cleveland, but Pennsylvania does not come herex to make any threats against the Democratic party." Pennsylvania threaten the Demo cratic party;" roared Cockran in reply. "Why. at the last election Pennsyl vania gave a Republican majority of 200.000. In God's name, what threat can Pennsylvania make to the Demo cratic party .' Ilensel Joined as heartily as any one else in .the peal of laughter that fol lowed this outburst. Representative John Daizell of Penn sylvania, trusted counselor of three speakers. Reed. Henderson and Can non, and opponent of Bourke Cockran, Is a veteran con gressman of nearly a score of years experience in Wash ington. Despite his long term of service he always has stage fright for hours be- fore lie makes a speech. "That re minds nie." he said JOHN DALZEIX. the other day. "of nn incident that oc President McKinley curred years ago. and I were waiting at a hotel to bo driven to a hall where we were both announced to speak. Mr. McKinley sat calmly smoking his cigar, while I was pacing up and down just as I am now. " 'Major.' I said, 'don't you ever get nervous before speaking? You are as cool as a encumber, and I'm lis nervous as the valedictorian of a young ladies' seminary.' My dear Daizell.' he rqplied, 'the difference between us is this You have got your speech in your bead, and I've got mine in my pocket." " j Representative Jacob Ruppert of New York tells this anecdote about Daizell. One day Ruppert was talking with a bright faced page about ten years of age. Who had you appointed?" Mr. Rup pert asked. 'Mr. Daizell of Pennsylvania," the youngster answered. 'I suppose when you grow up you are coming to congress to succeed Mr. Daizell?" Well. I'd hate to crowd Mr. Daizell out," answered the page hesitatingly. Robert B. Roosevelt, Uncle of the president, who recently declined to al low his name to be placed on the Dem ocratic electoral ticket of New York. has all his life been a Democrat and a figure of national prominence in the party. In declining the honor of presidential elector Mr. Roosevelt stated that, while he was opposed to the policies of the Republican party, he had every confi dence In the ability and integrity of his nephew, to whom be was warmly attached. He also said that his duty to his family prevented him from ar raying himself against its most dis- urnisbed wicnit'i r. Always interested In public affairs. Mr. Roosevelt has frequently been chosen by his party to places of trust. and during the last campaign of Grover Cleveland he was treasurer of the Democratic nation al committee. He comes from a distinguished and wealthy family which has lived in New York since B. 11. ROOSEVELT. 10S9, ror many years he practiced law, but fish culture and politics have been his-chief pleas ures. In 1871 Mr. Roosevelt was elect ed to congress, and during part of Mr. Cleveland's first administration he represented this country as minister to tbe Netherlands. Mr. Roosevelt bears the distinction of being the only man living who was a member of the reception committee which welcomed the Prince of Wales, now King Bdward YII.. to New York in 1SG0. He wjs a Isjl a member of the reception comaaittee ddring the visit of the Russian Grand Duke Alexis in 3S71. The president's uncle is a gentleman of the old school, rich, contented and a philosopher. He is a noted angler. good story teller and numbers a host cf friends on both sides of the Atlan tic. He is the author of various valu able works upon fish culture. Russell B.

Major Harrison has had a Varied experience as mining engineer, newspaper man. cat tleman, electric light and trolley magnate, soldier and lawyer. He held several minor government positions prior to May 12. 1SI. when he was appointed by President McKinlcy a major in the in spector general's de RUSSEIX HARRI SON. partment, lie was soon after assigned to the staff of Gen eral Pits-Hugh Lee. with whom he went to Cuba after the surrender. He was provost marshal of the Seventh con' s in which position he is said to have made a fine record. Ho was later sent to Porto Rico, where he was sum marily but honorably dismissed from the army. When be was provost marshal of the military camp at Jacksonville in 1818, Major Harrison rigged up a shower bath for the benefit of soldiers who lie came intoxicated. One night a big Texan who was brought in saw the major standing near by clothed in spot less white duck. In a second the Tex an seized the hose and turned it on the major, who was drenched to the skin. On another occasion the major was about to arrest a Soldier in citizen's clothes. The soldier claimed to be plain man of peace and said lie had never been in the army. Suddenly Harrison shouted "Attention:" The "civilian" braced himself up and pu his heels together with his hands at his side. "I think you are a good enough soldier to be with your regiment." sai, the major with a laugh, "and you'll be there tomorrow." Frinee Tu Lun Tsee. who might have been emperor of China and may be yet. Is one of the distinguished visitors to America just now. The prince is pres ident of the Chinese commission to the Louisiana Purchase exposition and was recently received by the president In Washington and entertained at breakfast by Secretary of State John Hay. He travels in great style, with a suit of sixteen attendants: wears, among other things, a yellow jacket and a three eyed peacock feather, ami has been kotowed to all his lift. He is only thirty years of age. is both neph ew and cousin or the present emperor of China and would now be emperor himself but for the plotting of the dow nger empress. He is the first member of the royal family of China to leave the empire and par ticipate in an in structive demonstra tion of the world's progress as typilieii rniNCE rr trx. pv the St. Louis ex position. Prior to his present trip the prince had never seen an ocean steam er, never gazed upon the ocean itself. He Is a Mantchoo Tartar and does not speak Chinese as it is spoken by the Celestials in America and in southern China. Even Chan Man Shang, the San Francisco millionaire, could not speak five words the prince could un derstand, it is said. Wong Kai Kali, a Yah- graduate, is his secretary and Interpreter. Justice Henry Billings Brown of the supreme court of the United States, who has happily recovered the sight of his right eye, which for a time it was feared would fol low the left into to tal blindness, has for many years been a familiar fig ure on the streets of Washington. Be fore his sight be came impaired Jus tice Brown vied with Justice White JISTICE BROWN. as the walker of the court. He was born of a good family in Massachu setts, graduated from Yah", attended law lectures at both Yale and Harvard and In 100 went to Detroit. He is fond of telling that he had but one let ter of introduction when he went to New York. "Only one," he says in tell ing the story. "Think of that!" "But to whom?" the listener always ska. "It was from Rufus Choate to Jo seph Choate." Mr. Brown replies with out a smile. Finally it dawns on the listener that the dignified jurist is chatting him. What more could a young lawyer have asked than a letter from Rufus Choate to Joseph Choate'; Justice Brown will be eligible for re tirement on account of age within two years.

On the other hand. Speaker Cannon is deeply concerned over the growth of opinion in his favor. The position of speaker, with its great power. BCCond only to that of the president, is vastly more to his liking than that of presid ing otiicer of the senate. The house of representatives, with its dose contact with the people and incessant activity, offers peculiar attractions to a man of Mr. Cannon's temperament. Notwithstanding Mr. Cannon's ob jection, if his party names him he will undoubtedly accept, for no man can de cline the nomination for vice president, once it has boon made, and hope to remain in public life. Speaker Cannon is above all else a plain man. He doesn't like fuss and pretension, and when on the tloor of the house he used to roll up his sleeves in the heat of debate and pound his desk with his fist. Many are the tales told of Speaker Cannon, some true and some not. but Uncle Joe never denies any ot them. "William." said Speaker Cannon to William Alden Smith of Michigan, the day after Smith nominated Cannon for president in a speech in the bouse, "that was very kind of you to nominate me for president." "I'm glad you liked it." smiled Smith. "Yes. William, and when I get to lie president you can have John Hay's Job. SPEAKER JOSEm O. CANNON. ..ccfiii't i.iiiig uiiT testimonials or use any Influence. Just go right up to the state department and take your seat." When the Philippine bill was put on passage a short time before the close of congress, the speaker said: "All in favor will please say 'Aye.' There was a gentle piping of "Aye on the Republican side. "All opposed say 'No,' " continued the Speaker. There was a thunderous burst of "No!" from the Democratic Kide. "The 'noes' seem to make the most noise," said the speaker calmly, "but the "ayec. have it and the bill is passed." Personally Mr. Cannon is the most genial and companionable of mgn, and his company at dinners is eagerly sought. He can tell good stories with any man in congress, and if absolutely necessary can si:ig a song, after a fash Ion. Nothing pleases him more than to got around a table with congenial friends. He smokes big black cigars almost constantly, and when not smok ing has an unlimited cigar in his mouth. Ot late years Speaker Cannon has spruced up a bit, but even DOW he is no fashion plate. Hi Is a small man. bout five feet and a half and slightly built. His shoulders stoop, and his arms hang loosely, lie might lie dap per If he tried, but externals do not bother Uncle Joe. With a continuous service of nearly merit provision, unless other causes intervene this 'will produce the next vacancy In the court, and Governor Penny packer of Pennsylvania is men tioned as one of tbe conspicuous can didates for his seat.

During the past quarter of a century be has been an active and a vital fac tor in the enactment of all the impor tant legislation that has found a place on the statute books. Mr. Cannon is rich, he and his broth er owning several banks in Illinois and some street railways. He also has large land holdings in Nebraska and elsewhere in the west. Money is no object to him. He meets everybody on the same footing, and every man is a man to him until tile reVVrse lias been proved. He Is as plain spoken and democratic at a banquet whose the president and the cabinet are guests as he is in the company of his cronies In the cloakrooms. Speaker Cannon is a native of North Carolina and is sixty-seven years old. SHORT STORIES, The cost of taking the first census was a little over a cent per head, that of the last census 17 cents.

Training Deaf Mate to Hear. To train deaf mutes to hear and to measure their sense of hearing have been subjects of experiment In Europe by Dr. Ma rage. A siren giving vowel sounds was used, and the intensity of the sound as it became audible became progressively less, many caes of com plete deafness being thus made to give place in six weeks to the power of hearing ordinary sounds. The treat ment proved to be pleasing instead of fatiguing or painful. The hearing was measured at different stages of the treatment by the air pressure neces sary to make the siren audible, and the results were claimed to Indicato that few persons are deaf and dumb beyond all cure.
