the Russians did uot. reply, the
Japanese apparently suspended
their operations to reconnoitre,
while the Russians fell back to a
more favorable position.
The gradual withdrawal of the
Russians before the Japanese
advance, the Russians consider as
increasing the security of their
position, as it is freely acknowledged that the Japanese are able to
beat them in detail in the mountains.
There is still.heavy firing in ths
direction of Aushanshun.
Numerous reliable repott* which

that despite the extreme JapuucBe
methods of the past fortnight to
perfect a blocado of Port Arthur by
means of sinking''all junks near
that place, the Russians outside
Port Arthur are considerably under
estimated as is also the resisting
power of tho fortress, which is
likely to hold out for two months
and possibly until January.
Contrary to the belief hero that
the Japanese had taken the outer

now understood that the Russians

they are unable to support their

WATER. IS   SOAKCK
Tlie scarcity of water is having
a disastrous effect in tho running
of the St. Eugene concentrator.
The mill is running on a little over
half feed, and it is doubtful if the
shipments for the month of August
will be over 1G00 tons. In July
2900 toiiB of concentrates were
made. The flumes are furnishing
very little water avid even with
a Bmall pump forcing water from

The Brown Jap
The Japs will soon have their big
opponents backed over the dump.
In the present war the Japs have
astonished tho world by their wonderful nerve and great skill in
handling the things that cause-sudden death.   The heathen Christian
*
sueers at the brownies because they
are learned pagans, but the Jap
has certainly tapped the lead that
is filled with success Ho is a good
cook and takes no stock in holy
water or unholy whiskey. He
knows that temperance, exercise,
health and strength are all brothers.
Fear is unknown and soldiers who
fear nothing, and are a unit in
'holding np their flag can only be
made to quit by annihilation. The
Jap is also almost entirely free from
syphilis, while the Russian army is
tainted with it in every rank. The
Russians are gluttons and drunkards, while the Japs are just the
opposite. The elements of defeat
lie within ths Rush's own camp.
He does uot live the correct physical life, and his mind is clouded
with superstition. His brains are
mud, and be fights like a machine
turned by a crank. Tho Jap is full
"of enthusiasm and lives better than
any soldier that ever cut a throat.
Hence if they do not win out in the
fight that is astonishing the world,
we will put our judgment out of
commission and cease to bo a war
critic
Tho Wrong Name
A terrible story of wrong comes
to as from Port Arthur. Not the
Port Arthur of brownies and blood
bat our own dear Port Arthur at
the]head of Lake Superior. It is
reported that many men have arrived there from tho Soo in search
of work, who state that they could
not get work at the great Soo works
because they were Tories, and had
the courage to let it be known.
Matters must have come to a pretty

do not say this from a Tory standpoint, but from one of common
sense and justice. Since the Liberals-took the reins at Ottawa they
have belied their name. They have
sought to crush an honest press,
and to keep the masses in ignorance
for the aggrandisement of them-
salves and the parasital professions
that fatten upon the fears and ignorance of the poor and unlearned.
They cling to the customs of the
past like an Alabama coon to a
spring chicken, and aet more like
egotibtical fools than sane men. To
us they act like disguised Tories
from the Dark Ages. You could
not make us believe that we have a
Liberal government in Canada. It is
simply a re-incarnation of the chaps
who hung around Jerusalem in the
early days in order to spike the
greatest socialist of ancient times.
• Do not get discouraged. The
darkest hour is often just before the
dawn.
Jap labor is not appreciated in
Port "Arthur and the head tax is
very high.
Colorado is talking about some

'      COLD   BLO06KD
Congressman Livingston of Georgia expresses amazement at the cold
blooded way in which Republicans
consider public questions. "They
seem to regard every conceivable
subject from a party standpoint,"
says Mr. Livingston; "reminds me
of a story they tell about a New
.York drummer who died suddenly
in an Atlanta hotel. The coroner
telegraphed to his firm, saying :
'•Your representative died here today. I- await your instructions."
In a few hours after this answer
came back; 'Search his pockets for
orders. Express his samples to
New York. * Give the body to a

TnE Christian Endeavor societies
of Connecticut are protesting against
the breaking of a bottle of wine

Connecticut when it is launched
next month, and want water used
instead. We quite agree with them.
It is a wilful waste of good stuff to
throw wine,at a big ship when
water would do just as well. By
all means christen the battleship
with water and send tbe wine to
us. We will keep it in a safe place
until it is old enough to present to
a modern temperance society.

"It has, it has indeed, my own."
"But it baa been very long, don't

".Yes; it has been pretty midlin'
long," he rejoined.
"I was thinking dearest," ibe
continued, playing with bis watch
and castlngdown her eyes, "that our

, A~s a cold'buBinesn proposition, let me'
. give-you -this: 'I would not trust an
, amateur gambler as far as you could
rjing Taurus by'the tail.        -•
- I will not do business with a man who
plays cards for money if'I can help it.
"No individual in my employ—or'any-
bod^ elso'S—who plays cards for money
can ever hope for promotion,
* A profosEional gambler may be. hon-
. est, but your' clerk  or  business man
.who indulges in a quiet game of draw,
" is a rogue, a liar and a cheat.
And the man he cheats most is- himself,'" ■"".■ .     '   •
-And tho only man he realey-deceives
' is himself.                -'
And the man who deceives himself
and cheats himself will get no,chance to
cheat me if the matter can be avoided.
Beware of the white face, the soft
hands "and the. impassive -smile of the
poker-player!   *   .,   v . •
The amateur gambler is not necessarily a bad man—primarily his intents
are honest.1 He plays first simply for
recreation;; then to add interest, the
game transforms Itself into penny-ante.
From this'to betting all ithe money he
has, is a very easy .evolution ,whji^he
fever is on,.   . '  -'$&&*'
He wlus;    •        ,.   .   -        ■'  ° ■
But to quit when you have won, and
not giye~ your opponents a chance to
' win their money back, is more or less of
a disgrace.
•He plays again—and Iossob
..  Theu he wants a chance to get his
money back.      .
-He plays first only in the evening—
an hour after supper.
- Then if he can get away from work
at four o'clock and play until supper
- time, ho will do so^ just as scores of government clerks d6 at Washington.    In
. tho evening he plays again—excitement
in the air—challenge is abroad—he will
- come out even, and'then quit.   Men
who have work to do canuot  play all
■night .and do business the next day, ao'
J_;j_»_l-i	
But Saturday night the game goes on
until daylight.
Of the "morality' of gambling, noth
ing need bo said—all I affirm is, that it
is simply absurd to enter on a habit
where success is defeat, and to win is a
ealamlty.
Tho successful amateur gambler graduates into a- professional; be has to, for
business men shun him.
No man who plays cards for money
can keep bis position long Tho fact Is,
none of us have a surplus* of brains, anei
if you are going to suceeed in business,
all the power you have to your credit is
demanded. The man who can play cards
at night and do business in the daytime,
hain't yet been born.
Life ii a bank account, with so tnuuh
divineenerg'y at your disposal, What
are you going to do with it? If you
draw your chocks for thin, you cannot

all, do not draw on the Iteuk of Futurity by breathing bad air, keeping bad
hours and bad;eompany. <

No man can play the races continually and win. John E. Madden, who has
made a '.million ' dollars out of horse
racing, says that defeat and nothing but
deleat awaits tbeV bettor on cards or
torses. And of all the foo's.tho biygest
is the man who bets on ' a sure thing."
Madden has foiljwed the business for a
quarter of a century, and says: "I
quit betting years ago, and if I ever bet
again, it will be because the disease has
gotten the best of my business judgment " The bookmaker gets in all-
he has but to wait and tho whole thing
ia his., '  ■ *'     '}
It is just like ft game of stud-poker,
where the dealer takes care of the bets,
and gives the first booster an ace in
the hole. If the boosters don't, get the
"live one's" money, the dealer will-
he gets all the others have,- as sure as
death, It they continue to play.
Do not imagine that alt the gambling
is done iu the cities—man made the

Hardly a.village in America is free
from the scourge
Gambling' means blurred visions,
weak muflcloB, shaky nerves. Loss of
sleep, lack of physical exercise, irregu
Ur meals, bad excitement, form a
devil's monopoly of bad things—and the
eud is disgrace, madness, death and the
grave.
I am not a member of the Christian
Endeavor Society, tho Epworth League,
the Baptist Union, the Knights of Columbus, or the Society for the Suppression of Vice, and all I say hero is
simply a llttlo plain talk by one
business man to others, with all soft
sentiment omitted.
Boys, we need all the brains wo have,
in our work. If by concentration,
and cutting out folly, we lucceod In do
gree, we do well. But I do not believe
we can reasonably hope for success un
loss we eliminate the pasteboard proclivities—this as a cold business proposition! I am done.
Out in Colorado, the other day, a doctor told mo this:
Tuberculosis is only a bad habit.
It Is a form of (fulness   ,
There are various degree*of latrinest,
but consumption arliei from a laty
habit of breathing The Individual
doc* not use all of hii iunga, and th*
celts not nwd, collapse, the tuberculte
find a netting place and hatch, end
gradually the dUcaae spreads, With
coiihuuiplkm thoie U alwaya imperfect
nutrition, and mai-asslaillatioii comes
largely from tack of exercise.
The germs of tuberculoeli are in
•very lndlrl4u»l-«iUtence It a fight
between the faciioni of life ind death
Life li a matter of elimination. If you
uae all the Iunga you have, every day,
in tbe open air, even but for a short
time, you may get killed In a railroad
areldent, but you will never die of con-
•umptlon.
And then my Ueuver doctor (old m«

who go to" Colorado and get well, are
those who go out- on tho ranches and
liye out doors.f \    ■>
Horseback.riding shakes a man up so
that the breath enters every cornet of
his lungs, Swing an ax, swing a broom,
swing your armi and breath deeply and
slowly. Ittakes will, but exercise in
the open air.is the price of life.
The;.i)enver doctor is right—consumption is a di«ease of the will; People iu: New; England need not die of
consumption if they will only get out
and exert ihemsei\ 64,
, And so thoroughly is this fact known
ttiat in the city of Denver the "lunger"
gets very Bcant sympathy.- Every
s ire aud office and factory is on guard
against him.
. "Are you hero for your health?" And
if the reply is ^yes," he is damned on
the. spot No consumptive admits he
has consumption, but most lungers are
patent medicine fiends..
They seek a substitute for deep-
breathing and exercise.{ And they all
die before they find it out. Nothing
that can be poured out of a bottle and
taken with a spoon, will take the place
ofthe sawtbuck.
The lunger in Colorado who ie re illy
wise will swear i' faith he.is but there
to train for a prize fight or a long-distance pedestrian match, and then by his
daily life will carry out the idea.
The aversion to the stricken person
Is a good thing—he ceases to talk about
his malady. And if he can be made to
cease-giving tbe woodpile absent treatment, he will get well.
There Is a law in Colorado making it
a serious offence for any one to employ,
a consumptive in a bakery, dairy,
restaurant or hotel, or any other place
where food- is prepared or served
Customers instinctively boycott the concern that harbors the lunger. And so
they fall prey to the third-class boarding-house who charge a first-class price,
and get no one else but lungers. The
lunger has to associate with lungers,
for everywhere he is shunned and
scorned. He is a pariah, and only last
yoar a bill was introduced Into Colorado
"Legislature, requiring every consumptive to carry-a bell suspended-around
his neck and ring it, as th*) leper is compelled to cry, ^'Unclean, unclean!" Only
bum doctors, undertakers, and the men
who keep-the-ylunger-ranchesr'Mveir
come the consumptives to Colorado-
business men flee him as a pestilence.
This seems hard indeed; but if by a
natural method of fastening disgrace
on a sick man, he can be forced to bring
will to bear, ho can cure himself People live longer in New England than in
Colorado, if, they only hustle—and
hustle out of doors.
Disinclination to stir ia the damnation ofthe man with the so-called consumption taint The trouble is In his
brain, not his iunga.
The person who has will enough to
sleep out of doors the year 'round in
Massachusetts will snip the growth of
consumption in the bud.
■ Midnight suppers, steam heat, cushioned chairs, ease, and a Inzy habit of
life, are the " things the tuberculae
love. All this doesn't sound sympathetic, but it's God's truth.
