Constantinople, Aug. 14.—A
band of Armenians has been attacked by Turkish troops in the
village of Schamirun, five hours
travel north of Bitlis, Asiatic Turkey. The villages are reported to
have been destroyed.
London, Aug. 14.—The stock
market during the past week was
steadier as the dealings were very
small and the business mostly concerned the fortnightly settlement.
The American market has been
brisker,  prices rising appreciably
the general outlook for American
goods is considered to be promising.
The other markets are noteworthy
features, and not likely to show a
revival so long as the political situation is gloomy. Operators hope
that the fall of Tort Arthur wjjl be
the signal for peace negotiations. .
Many telegrams arrived at this
office last night that it was impossible for us to get in this journal.

St. Petersburg, Aug. 15—The
Bourse Gozette ha.? received the
following from its Liao Yang correspondent :
"Twelve Japanese regiments
have left in the direction of Port
Arthur. It is stated on trustworthy authority that the Mikado
has ordered that Port Arthur must
be taken at any cost if it necessitates the suspension of operations
in Manchuria, and it is quite possible that the main Japanese force
will proceed to Port Arthur within
a few days, Rain has stopped all
St. Petersburg, Aug. 14—A despatch from Mukden states that the

Captain Fujimoto anticipating
it's escape during the night if pos
sible to attack merchant vessels
entered Che Foo with two destroyers and found the Russian destroyer Ryeahitelni remaining un-,
disarmed. Lieut Terashima was
then sent to the Russian vessel
with a message to the effect that
the Ja| anese commander expected
him to leave by dawn or surrender.
"Trussian commander refused to
comply with either demand, and
while the conference was still going on, he was heard instructing
his men to blow up the ship. At
the sama time, he caught hold of
Lieut. Terashima and threw him
over board. Our interpreter was
next thrown over board by some
Russian sailors and others among
the sailors showed signs of resistance.
"While this was progressing the
foreward magazine exploded killing
one and mortally injuring four of
our men. We then captured the
destroyer and retired. Lieut.
Terishima and ten others were
wounded." »

the Russian torpedo boat destroyer
Ryeahitelni at Che Foo by Japanese
ships. It is i-ointed out that the
matter is one between Russia and
Japan, in which France is not
diractly interested. Should Russia
protest against the seizure France
will act as an intermediary in ac-
coroBTJCe with, thej^roemejit by
which she is charged with the care
of Russian interests in Japan during the war, but her attitude will
depend entirely on that of the
Mikado's government, which it is
impossible to forsee. For instance
should Japan thtow blamo for the
affair upon a naval officer, apologize and give up the Ryeshitelni,
the matter would bo dropped.
St. Petersburg, Aug 14—By com-
maud of the Kmperor, Foreign
Minister Lamsdorff i as instructed
Annie Allen was murdered
on Friday afternoon by Joshua
Bell. She was living in the Red
Light District with Annie Swan
when Bell came to town with a
prize fighting outfit. He had
they lived together in Spokane.
He lay in wait for her about 2
o'clock Friday afternoon, and stabbed her so that she died in a few
minutes. Both in a few minutes.
Both are Negroes. Bell was captured in a few hours, and he is
sure of hanging as this murder is
the most cold-blooded in the his-
-foiy of the- K^OlSKSy.

After living for ten years in a
town dead  to enterprise and  expending thousands of dollars in a
vain effort to  push  New Denver
into the upper slope of prominence
it is sad to be compelled from a
spirit of self-prest rvation to abandon the location and  plant other
stakes.    But it had to be done or
else   sink into oblivion   with  the
moss sprouting through our silken,
hirsute foliage.    We would rather
ho ground to death under the piti-
le-s wheels of commercial competition timo rust to a finish, like a
pile of scrap iron on a hillsid<\   So
tlie other day we pulled out of New
Denver, bug, baggage and bulldog,
leaving the water barrel and   the
blitek cow to their lonely fate.   We
are not lost.    Simply moved onto
die Rome of Kootenay and a wider,
field for our love of work.    Our departure from the old camp was like

She was already in the drawing-

vvhen he saw her heavy eyes, the
deep lines of suffering ou her face,
and noted that she was still wearing her gauzy ball gown.
"You are ill?" he gasped.
She shook her head.
"Only a   woman can apreciate
what she has endured,"   ventured
one of her companions.
The girl smiled wanly. "Leave

Righteousness is doing as we
ought to do to our fellow men,
caring for qui* own health and
morals, and being good citizens.
Certain political laws are intended to prevent wrong-doing, and
help the people to be just and live
harmoniously. But moneygreed
so largely rules in politics that the
building of righteousness needs
other means and laws.
Our forefathers founded churches
and schools to promote   righteousness by teaching the people to fear
a god, a devil, and an everlasting
hell, and hope for   forgiveness of
sins aud a reward  of eternal   happiness in  heaven.     But the  progress    of   human    evolution    or
civilization   is by schools,   newspapers, magazines, books, making
and enforcing of laws,, the various
industries,    the   investigation    of
scientists, etc; and along with this
we see the continuation  of  wrong
doing—vices, social  evils,  crimes,
d iinkenness,  etc.,    which   shows
t i;it  the   Bible doctrines are not
Mimrsful in   IiU.ltliiig   righteousness, are not all  true.     Scientists
find    no  gods,   devils,    bell,  or
heaven anywhere, but they do find
causes for all of nature's   changes,
irrespective of    mail's wishes   or
feus, piety, or   profanity.      They

From time itnmemorial the bathtub has been an honorable institution in Japan. Instead of a cold dip
in the morning, the Japs take their
b iths hot in the afternoon at about
five o'clock, and, begining at one
hundred degrees, the tendency is
to raise the temperature as one becomes acclimatized, so to speak.
One traveller tells of the Kawarayu
bathers, who stny in the tub for
several weeks at a time with stones
iu their laus to keep their bodies
from floating while they are
The usual thing is to have the
tub on the lawn with a ehaicoal
fire beneath it, so that one can get
into the water at 80 degrees/ nnd
sit in it until it reaches 100 degrees. At this point a "griffin, '
which is to say, a newchun, n
greenhorn, or a tenderfoot, usually
h is to get out, for it becomes literally too hot for him. But after a
year or two of practice, he can
nnunge 115 degrees or 120 degrees.
The Japs thein-elves can enjoy a
hath e\en at 128 degrees,

"I dressed, and I tramped three
miles through   the  cold   and the

and once my hat fell  off,   and in
the darkness I was nearly half an
hour finding it.
"Finally,   though,   I    reached
Smith's.   But the house was dark
—shutters all closed—not a light.
I rang the bell.    No answer.    But
at last a head stuck itself gingerly
out of a third story window.
" 'Be you Dr. Doyle?" It wild.
"'Yen,** »ld I.   Let me in."
" 'Oh, no need to come in,   doctor," said the bend.    "The ehild'a

you give it?" said I.
"Only two drops, doctor. Not
enough to hurt a cat. I guew I'd

Sorry to have troubled you."

In one way, at leiiBt, the best years of
our life are the early years. Childhood
is the age of genius, and of hope.
Everything in the world seems new,
everything seems good, everything
seems possible:        ' s
It has been truly said, and it cannot
be too often repeated:
"Every child is in a sense a genhn
-and every genius is in now, ways a
child " '■'   "
Tlie child is a genius because he is
orifiiieil, because his brains development and brain activity are extnionjiu-
ary in proportion to his vital force, be
cause he St os everything in his new and
orijiiual light.
The genius is a child in the fact that
he has kept his early enthusiasm, kept
the power to see things with liew oyeB,
tho power tojimagine, to believe and
to create
The saddest thing in tno world is the
gradual change in the view of life that
comes over so many millions and millions'—the great majority of us all.
We begin as boys with a lirtn belief
in the futui'o and its possibilities. Passing years rob us one by one of our
hopes, ambitions and plans.
Every man of forty, almost can look
back at the years as so many milestones
where bis different aspirations and
biillant hopes were dropped.
The possibilities that seemed unlimited narrow down to a routine of bard
work, with little hope ahead. The
mind was that all expansions oecomes
dull, contracted, utmost hopeless.
In different ways, but with the same
result, Ihe gn-at majority of human beings gradually sink into a slate free
from real ambition.
Some of us blame "'our luck." A
great majority of us fail to blame orn-
selves. Many find iu dissipation a tern
porary and painful cure for disappointed hope. Some settle down humbly
and sadly to the .admission that they
"haven t got it in them to succeed."
It is to these lust, the humble minded,
who at thirty, forty or fifty give, up
hope of success thut   wo   wuiut  to talk
It was working hard, after all, more
than any thing elBe, that made Grant
succeed. The determination, the
sticking quality displayed by Grant
and that won Lincoln's approval and
suppon, will win approval and support for every man in whatever liue he
may be working.
Tho main .thing is to realize that the
world wants bard work, it wants cheer
ful, determined effort. It doesn't want
growling, grumpy discouragement.
Let the man who is down and who is
about tn dispuir determine to begin his
lite again from today. Let him mako
up his mind to appree'ate what begets,
not grumbling at fate because he failed
to realize childish dreams without manly effort.
Men should remember especially that
it is at foriy, forty five or later that
their best chance comes, if they have
the right stuff iu them.
There is no better age than forty,
for instance, lo begin getting an education—or, if there is a better age, it is
after forty, not. before it.
Don't settle ''down to failure, don't
give in because the world has not come
to you. Get up and go out after it.
Say to yourself, "What Grant, the
discouraged drunkard, did in a big
way, I shall do at least in a small way."
You may be sure that in this world,
where there is so little real determination, so little power,- you can make
your way and make up.for the darkest
kind of early, failure if you will.—Frisco

We wish that some power could im
press upon all men the fact that it is
never to late to hope for success, and
especially the fact that the age at which
most men give up hope is the very age
when hope is more apt to be realized.
Wo all suffer from an insane desire to
early succeed. We all feel thut our
mere hopes, our mere wishing, should
briiiit suiHO-is to us " We will not
realize that, hope and ambition can act
but as guides and inceiitivos. Wo wil:
not realize that it is timo and long
effort alone that realize our dreams,
D.i you know the mail of all men in
the United States history whoso example should encourage tho disappointed,
broken-spirited man of forty and forty •
That man is General Grant.
General Grant's 1 fo should encourage
every discouraged man, it should make

Grant, before, the World ever heard o
