Sioux Falls Argus Leader, 18: Policeman John Tracey had an un enviable task to perforin yesterday. Mr. Tracey and the late Owen Mc Cairier have been the be-st of friends for many yeais, and about eighteen vearts ago Mr. Tracey promised Mr. McCarrier that when the latter died the former would dig the grave for bis body. Last summer when Mr. McCar rier was in bad health he called the at tention of the officer to the promise When Mr. Tracey learned of the death of his old friend be stood by his promise, and notwithstanding the froz en condition of the ground and the severe weather shouldered a pick and shovel and went to the burying ground and made his promise good.

She bad been suffering from a severe cold and last Sunday night scar let fever developed, the premises being oiiarantined Monday.

Her mother was with her at the time of her death. No funeral services will be held at this time and the remains will be buried in the Lake Madison cemetery. Mr. HoiJal refers to the deceased youni lady in the highest terms and mncb gret is expressed by her friend1!for ber untimelv death. THE CHINESE. How They Have Viewed the Pro gress of Diplomatic Events in World's History. Collier s Weekly: Cultivated China takw a view of current incidents which is very persuasive to persons who are tempted to apply moral standards to international affaiis. The doctrine of Confucius includes reliance upon justice rather than upon foice. and China is deeply imbued with the doctrine of Confucius. Wnen the western powers began to worry ber her mandarins, or men of scnolarship, began to study in ternational law. They found in it no justification for much that had happen ed. Germany sent missionaries, who bought land, sold by the individual without the consent of the clan, which in Chinese law is precisely equivalent to our law in reference to the sale o stolen goods. The Germans ret used to accept the law of the country and insistal upon retaining their stolen goods. Tnen came murder and Ger manv's opportunity to seize territory and a port. The cultivated Chinaman, in puzzling about the new conditions, tries to see why we object to Russia's claiming control of Manchuria for ber railway, while we are controlling the isthmus for oni canal. He remember* not only that the opium traffic was forced upon China by England, but that that traffic is still maintained. He knows that China is a tradiug na tion, but wonders if hand made beauty in articles of commerce reed, by any divine law, be killed by the onslaught of machinery. He naturalh compares the Ding ley tariff and the Chinese ex elusion act with the open door. He knows that we are entirely ignorant of his literature, except his bible, and that we are taught in our early educa tion to think of him as a person who builds a wall around his country and eats rats. He can no longei turn away in silent scorn, and is beginning to or ganize. and to learn from the opposite policy of the Japanese, confident that they intend to remain truly oriental in spiritual standpoint, while using the westerners to teach them all the tricks of temporal power. He i« sad to be forced into such a sordid struggle, but he sees the necessity now of fighting and scheming for the privilege of re taining the essence of what he has. through centuries of cuttma, believed to be beautiful and true.

Hot Springs, dispatch, 17: Word reaches here from Washington that Congressmen Martin and Burke, togeth er with Capt. Palmer, representing th e national home board, nave been assured by the apprpriation committee that the bill will bo reported favorably asking for an appropiiation of f7.",000 to com plete the various wards and the gov ernors' home as originally planned by the architect ft the national sanitarium at this place. This will bring the total appropriation thus far made by congress up to f64r,000. This amount will nearly all be expended during the coming year. The wcrk has already progressed in excellent shape a comparatively small force of men having been employed all winter, in fact the contractors regret that they had not put on more men. although with the uncer tainty of having working weather dur ing the winter the contractors have only had about 100 men employed during the winter. Yet they have lost less than a week's work on account of the weathei. The foundations are mostly laid and the walls well staited on the ward build ings. Everything is therefore in excel lent shape for crowding the work as soon a# settled spring weather comes, when a large force of masons and laboring men will be set to work. SECRETTVEJAPS. War News Unobtainable Follow Instructions of Their Leaders Blindly. Tokio dispatch, 17: On the surface there is almost no indication here about* of the serious crisis which the nation is facing. Five weeks ago th newspapers were printing every day re ports that the preparations for war were goinir forward rapidly. Then $ame an imperial ordinance forbidding any reference to the movements of troops or war vessels. A conspiracy of silence has been formed with the whole Japanese pqpp! as the conspirator*. Reference to "tne war" produces a smile and a depreca tory wave of the band: that is all. ,The manner la which the nation has re sponded to the social injunction of silence is extraordinary. The secrecy begun officially has become popular and now a dragnet would not turn up a Japanese who knew anything. It populnrily believed that the entire army is ready for any emergency. A curious effect of the Japanese can tion is to be found in the book and picture shops. Only a little while agi photographs of Japanese warships wen on common sale, and pictures of nava and military men could be had in most of the photograph shops, as well a many views of the reviews, drills, and sham battles. Now not one is to had. all having been withdrawn by order of the government, as if it wen possible ror the Russians to obtain any information from such a source of which tbev had not long ago possessed themselves. So secretly has tbe government acted that it is doubtful if half a dozen men in all Japan know today exactly what all the row is about or could detail the course of negotiations with Russia sine the situation became dangerous peace. No statement of any sort as to the causes of the difference with Rust-ia or their character has been made by any one in authority. The nation is at war because of de mands upon Russia, the nature of which it does not pretend to know nor does it care much. The fundamenta causes of the general hatred of Russia are well known to every Japanese. Th» extraordinary patriotism of the .Japan ese will lead them to support a war whatever the cause i*. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portions of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflamation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed for ever nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous services.

Chicago, Feb. 19.—The cause of the deadly wave of fire and superheated air which swopt over the Iroquois matinee audience, bringing instant death to hundreds, has been discov ered by investigators employed by Cor poration Counsel Tolman. The investigations of Alfred C. Mace, a public appraiser, covering a period of over three weeks, led him into a large air chamber above the east wall of the building. Within this chamber, into which l^d ventilating ducts from every part of the theater, Mr. Mace found a large electric fan which, when in operation, produced a draft of great force. He declares that he has convinced himself that this fan was operating during the fire and that the draft it produced sucked the fire from the stage across the auditorium and against the east wall. This theory is based, Mr. Mare says, on the fact that he found the iron leaves of the fan melted in places, which could have been brought about only by intenso heat. He believes that the draft pro duced by the fan was great enough to draw the fire itself into the air cham ber. Woman's College Destroyed. Charlotte. X.
