Hit & (0, limi  Compact of Surrender Signed  Monday Night.  Tokyo, Jan. 3.���������Tuesday Morning.���������The Russian.and Japanese  commissioners appointed to arrange the terms of the capitulation of the Russian forces at Port Arthur signed the compact of surrender at S:45 o'clock last night.. The Japanese  army-will enter the city today-  Tokyo, J.'iu. 2.���������The text ot Gen.  Nogi's telegram announcing lhe capitulation of the Russian forces at Port  Arllmr is tis follows:  "The.plenipotentiaries of both parties concluded their negotiations today  at *1.30 o'clock. ..The Russian commissioner accepted on the whole the conditions stipulated by us aud consented  to capitulate. The document litis been  prepared and signatures, ave now  being affixed. Simultaneously with  tlie conclusion of the negotiations;,  both armies suspended hostilities. It  is ex /ected that the Japanese army  will enter the city of Port Arthur tomorrow."  Port Arthur, whose hills for months  have run red with the blood of the  bravest of two warlike nations, has at  last succumbed to the fierce tenacity  of the Japanese altack. Gen. Stoessef,  most stubborn in cairyiug out the will  of his sovereign, has seen the advance  of the besieging army gain in momentum and energy until to hold out any  longer would have heen a crime  against humanity. The conditions of  the surrender are not yet Known, but  in all quarters it is anticipated that,  they aie such as an honorable "soldier  may accept from a brave and victorious enemy.  At 9.45- nVIn/il* ir������nJcvj���������mglii���������"tile  commissioners completed the signing  of the capitulation agreement.. Both  armies had suspended, hostilities five  hours earlier. The city of "Port Arthur  wa.s occupied by the Japanese army  Thesday.    - ,,  --The authorities at,Sl. Petersburg, in  the absence of direct official news  froin'Gen*" Stoessel'that Port A.rthur  has surrendered, have not allowed the  news to become public. Emperor  Nicholas is in the south of. Russia and  his ministci'sare for the time being in  the dark as to what "dispatches have  been sent to him from the front.  TOKYO. SCENE OE JOX.   "Tokyo is tlie "scene of rejoicing,  people of all ranks finding in the outcome compensation for all the sacrifice  of life tind money that was entailed in  the ten months' siege.  .  To wliat extent the fall of Port Arthur will make for a lesloration of  peace is an open question. Tliere is an  encouraging note in the expression of  Baron Ilayashi, Japanese Minister to  London, of the "hope that in some  way il will facilitate final peace,"  though the pacific note is perhaps lost  in the later.-'words of the minister,  whicli call attention to the' fact that  the besieging army will now be free to  go noith. where it will be an offset to  the reinforcements Gen. Kuropatkin  has been receiving from Russia since  the battle of Shakhe. The* spirit of  the Russians may be judged by the  statement of the secretary of the embassy in London Uiat_ the campaign  will be renewed" with-fresli-vigor" in  the spring, and that the nation will  not lie content to permit Port Arthur  to remain iii the hands of Japanese.  Both in Paris and" in London the  opinion is that tho squadron under  Vice Admiral Rojestvensky which  stalled from Libau for the far East  three months ago will-have to retrace  its way home, as adherence to the  original plans would -invite disaster  without probability of effecting a  juncture with the warships at present  in the harbor of Vladivostock.      .  That Japan may uol'- be permitted  to retaiu possession of Port Arthur  without dispute is shown in the fact  that Paris newspapers aro already reviving the claim made in 1001 that the  holding of that position commanding  the Kasleru seas by - the Japanese  would be a menace to the European  powers.  Theie is an expectation.in diplomatic circles in St. Petersburg that some  of thc poweis may mako a tender of  friendly oflices, and'the intimation is  conveyed that the. United States may  take the initiative'. ' Should that be  thc case it could only be on assurance  fiom both the warring 'powers' that  the tender would be received by them  in good part.  Russian officers who have reached  Chefoo relate that the Port Arthur  garrison was completely worn out by  five days of continuous fighting, that  the food was almost, exhausted and  thiit the limit of resistance had-been  reached when Gen. Stoessel made his  oiler of capitulation.       ".   _    i- - tatert** ~~~~  -The text of the'articles of capitulation of Port .Arthur gmrison. jsigned  by lhe commissioners -representing  General Stoessel mill General Nogi,  have been made public:   >  All Russian soldi^-s arid marines and  civilian officers of ill*'- %-Vi.-isoii and  harbor are made prisoners: all forts,  batteries, vessels, munitions, etc.,,are  transferred lo the Japanese .in the  condnion in which they existed at  noon of January 3, violation of this  clause lo operate as an aiinullment of  the negotiations, giving tlys Japanese  army warrant to take free action.  - -The.

Given   By Fraternal  Order  of  Eagles Monday Night.  The Second Annual Ball given under  the auspices of the Fraternal Order of  Eagles on Monday was a success in  every way, a good number being  present and everyone having a most  thorough evening's enjoyment. The  opera house "looked" the best yet,  being beautifully and appropriately  decorated with motlos, bunting and  evergreens, and reflects great, credit  on the committee in charge. The  music supplied by the Revelstoke brius  band was all that could lie desired, as  the late hour to which dancing was  continued testified. Mr. Shearer also  contributed several excellent extras  on the piano.  The supper room upstairs whore the  banquet wtis served by Mrs. McKit-  riek of the Palace restaurant in hor  usual excellent-style, was also tastefully decorated, the table decorations  being especially nice.  At the close of the. evening all present were unanimous in saying they  had spent the. most enjoyable dance of  the season.  The committee in charge of the ball  express themselves as perfectly, satisfied with the result,'-both from a social  and financial standpoint.   ���������   The "Canada Inter-Ocean."  Victoria, B.

Some Hint-like lump was  in his throat, but no word could  pass. And then the door had closed  and he was alone. Tlic last man  to own it, he could have said that  in t-Kat moment tlie sunlight seemed  io fade ou.t of his life and leave il in  eternal dusk.  It might hnvo been six weeks later  that Mr. Bede Grafton startled his  coadunan moro tlian ordinarily by  savagely directing him to drive to  nn obscure suburban street. It was  dark. At tho cornor Mr. Grafton  alighted. turnC'J up liis coat-collar,  muttered something, and moved  along the row of absurdly small  ^viUas.=^No.w^h<^_dr_oJv^a^s'iaj:pJit^iLtlii  I said I'd bo brave as anything and  mind tho house.

The cake's in  that cupboard."  Mechanically, certainly not realizing  old Bodo Grafton took down the letter from behind a vase. Next moment he had sucked in 5iis lips sharply, as If to keep back a������word. Only  a fow linos,  but luminous ones.  'Dear Madam,���������I understand from  a friend that you arc anxious to obtain qccasional employment in fancy-  work. If you call Here to-morrow at  ten o'clock I can employ you for a  few hours.

Irritation Results in Diseased State.  Tho painful disease resulting from  long oxposuro to tho X-rays, to  which attention has been called by  Dr. Hall-lOdwards, of the Birmingham (England) General Hospital, is  fortunately one which patients need  not fear. Tho short period of exposure to tho rays wliich Ihey undergo is not dangerous. It is the doctor and hi.s assistant, who work  with thc rays for hours daily nnd  for years together, who riln the risk  of this now and dreadful disease.  "The only risk the patient undergoes," said nn eminent authority,  "is that of an acute burn, which  may lake some time to heal, but is  a totally different thing from this  chronic burn, like the slow dry eca-  cma, generally on the hand, which  affects people who make the apparatus or use the rays."  "Is it impossible to prevent it?"  "No, tlie danger is now fully realized, and tube screens and olher appliances to enclose and shot off the  light except whero it is wanted " aro  In constant use. In tho past thero  has boon a certain amount of carelessness. In screen work the temptation was to approach the hands  very near tho light for the purposo  of getting a vivid image. In tho  case of a. scorching fire, you do not  place your hand close to it because  you are��������� warned by the pain. But,  with tho. X-rays thoracis no immediate result, and no' fooling whatever.  Familiarity and the absence of immediate consequences led to reckless  exposure at close quartcrsi and many  of the pioneers havo suffered. With  the precautions now iu use thero will  bo loss risk in future, but there aro  many operators whoso flesh has been  brought to such a state by long-  continued exposure that a very little  more subjection to the rays will bo  dangerous. They will have to bo  exceedingly careful."  "RESEMBLES   CANCF'lt  .,Tlio..most.-surprising and dicadful  thing " abbtit!- this chronic X-ray  dermatitis" is that-it almost exactly  resembles : cancer.*. Messis. l'utsoy  and Caldwell, two well-known American writers, in a recent work on  "Practical Application of tho Bont-  gen Rays," have dealt at somo  length with tho symptoms, whicli  closely resemble those of "caiaiuo-  ma," as the doctors call cancel.  "A doctor at ono of out leading  hospitals has hnd to have pai I of his  hand amputated owing to the X-  rny affection," he said : "It has  been found impossible to distinguish,  afler examination by tho Cancel Research ollicials, betweon the appearance of the diseased flesh tesulting  from tho chronic'X-ray bum and a  caso of true cancer. When you look  nt a small portion of tho flesh affected it looks mighty like cancer,  quite enough to frighten anyone who  has got it."

"No germ or microbe has been  identified' as'...-characteristic* of cancer," was tlio reply. "Cancel is a  mis-growth of the colls of tho bodily tissue, which instead 01 their  normal form take the various diseased shapes, producing ulceratod  matter, or hard growths, or a jollylike substance.

It is  presumed that the germ, or poison,  or other malign influence which causes the cell-structure to break down,  is conveyed tlirough the body by tho  blood.

Tho cells of  the sore place are in it perpetual  stale of irritation nnd confusion,  never assuming their proper healthy  structure by the chance opportunity  given to a microbe, or simply  through thc long refusal to allow  tho cells thoir normal growth, cancer is set up and begins to spread.'''  "Then you moan that thc X-ray  cancer is simply like clay-pipe cancer, tho result of.-a long-neglected  sore?"  "Quite so, Without postulating  nny germ, we know that.an irritation allowed to go on for years may.  continue benign and harmless for a  time, and then turn into a malignant growth which produces cancer.

Variety in food does not necessarily mean a great variety at any ono  meal, nor docs it mean rich pastries  and indigestible stuffs. A meal of  two or three urticles is reully bettor  than a great number, but each meal  should bo different from thc other.  Breakfast, dinner and supper should  consist of different articles of food,  and these bo varied from dny to day.  A variety of wholesome foods well  cooked is needed. Tiio sensible housewife is tho one who does net serve to  husband and children the things day  nftor day until thoir appetites aro  cloyed, and their stomachs go on a  strike.

After  this public baptism, thc converts recall thoir experiences and tell how  they have been "saved."  Mr. Edward Coonoy, a son of Mr.  W. R. Cooney, J.P., ono of tho principal merchants of Enniskillen, has  left his family and gone to Ballina-  mallard to lead the tramp pilgrims.  Somo hundreds of persons from country Fermanagh have followed Mr.  Coonoy, and embraced the new belief.  Many have even %old their farms or  loft their business in order to join  the new Jordanites.  During the present week sixty-four  persons have been baptized in Balli-  cassidy river, and those are now going about seeking converts. This is  tho method   of baptism:  On the banks of the river tlio pilgrims assemble and conduct dovo-  tional exercises. Then they form a  lane on either sido. Tho persons to  bo baptized marcli through this,  hymns being sung in the meantime.  Standing to his loins in the river is  one of the pilgrims, nnd Iio, repeating th'o usual baptismal formula,  catches the person converted ami  places him completely lyid'cr tho  water.

It was the one  event of the year to which the country people���������and tho towns-people  too���������looked forward to and backward at. They dated from it. It  was : "I bought . that horse at  Cumberleigh Fair." "They 'woro  married three weeks come Pair-  time," and so on; just as tho Italian reckons from some grand festival, or the Spaniard counts from  pome  famous  bull-light.  It was the third and the last day,  and the fair was at its height.  The lanes bct-wcen the booths were  crowded with a dense throng of  pleasure-makers, men and women in  their Sunday best; some of their  children on  their shoulders.  The row was awful and indescribable. From one side came the yells  of the showmen descanting on thc  merits of their particular shows, and  imploring the people to "Walk up!"  From another there came the dull,  heavy roar of a lion in the menagerie: while from many, too many,  drinking booths snatches of tipsy  choruses floated out and mingled  . with the general din. Merry-go-  rounds and swings revolved and  swung to the melodious strains of  steam organs. Every showman had  a drum, and seemed to be trying to  knock the head in. A couple of  brass bands played unceasingly.  Children blew innumerable tin trum-r  pets, and the ingenious gentleman  with the three thimbles and a pea  shouted hoarse exhortations to the  crowd to come and win their fortunes.  There was every, kind of show.  'rtic-tac���������worn**.**���������ww*-*._hr!re. .in. company with the giant and the dwarf  and the living? skclton. The spotted  nobleman was a great .attraction,  and thc wild man of the woods roared and yelled invitingly through the  bars of his  cage.  A little apart from the rest -were  half a dozen gypsy caravans'. No  fair would be complete without  gypsies, and they were nt Cumberleigh in full force. Every now and  then a dark-skinned, black-haired  lass, with the usual crimson shawl,  draped hood fashion over her lustrous head would glide in and about  the crowd with that easy and graceful gait which these strange peoplo  have inherited from the days "when  Pharaoh was king over Egypt," and  whisper. "Let me toll your fortune,  kind gentleman. Cross the Gypsy's  hand with silver,  pretty lady!"  Nut-brown children sat on the  steps of the caravans, or played j  about the horses' heels with impunity, and in the centre of the colony,  so to speak, was gathered, around  a kettle suspended over a firo, a  group of gypsies were eating their  afternoon meal ns placidly as if thoy  had pitched their tent on some sylvan island.  Just outside this ring around the  fi.-c a young girl leaned against the  side of the caravan.

That she wore a bettor dross and  wore it with exceptional grace might  ho ascribed to the fact that sho was  the queen of her tribe, and perhaps  she owed to the same fact the air  of reposeful dignity which sat so  well upon her at this moment, when,  as if unconscious of tho .surrounding  turmoil, she stood lost in thought  and her own day-dreams; for even  gypsy      who  lives  tolling    fortunes      may    have     day  dreams.  Presently a man came around the  caravan. Ho was a gypsy liko the  rest,   but  was  dressed  in a    'shabby  pushing, seething mass, repeating  tho forma!���������"Let the gypsy tell your  fortune, let the gypsy toll your fortune.

The severe treatment of tho political exiles in the  Siberian town of Irkutsk led to sov-  enty of theso men barricading I'hem-  sclves in a house with a good supply  of arms uml provisions. A largo  force of police and soldiers surrounded the place and endeavored to forco  an entrance, but Were driven olT hy a  fierco fire from the besieged.

The house wns then  invested with the purpose of starving,  out the defenders, hut the latter inade  furious sallies, inllicting heavy loss  on the soldiers. Eventually, after  ahout ten days of this sort of thing,  a compromise was arrived at whereby tho exiles were allowed a dogrco  moro liberty.  France has of late years bocomo  notorious foi' its peace sieges. Very  dramatic was the scene of the expulsion of thc monks of the Grande  Chartreuse monastery, celebrated for  tho liqueur of that name.

Paris had excitement of a type it  delights in when the police attempted  to arrest Jean Kolf, a gigantic  horsetlcaler.

DIABETES.  In tho treatment ot diabetes tho  chief reliance of i'he physician is on  lho adjustment of the diet, looking  to the exclusion, so far as may bo  IK-ssible, of all sugar-containing  foods. It hns been contended by  somo physicians that little advantage is to bo gained by this, since the  excretion of sugar by tho kidney is  only a symptom of Uiio disease, and  cot thc disease itself, and thut lho  object should be to correct the condition which lies at tho root of thn  trouble. If tho physlciun knew just  what tiro tho conditions which underlie, glycosuria (diabetes) he might,  and h'o might not, be able to treat  and cure it. Bul although many arc  trying to solve tho riddle, it is not  yet clear, nnd until it is the physician must do thc best ho can for his  patient.  In diabetes not only is sugar excreted through tho kidneys, but much  also is circulating in the blood: the  first may do no harm, except, perhaps, to tho kidneys, and may oven  tlo good by taking sugar from the  hlood, but the second condition is  exceedingly harmful, and its removal  or diminution by dieting will relieve  mnny of the distressing symptoms of  ��������� the disease, and may greatly prolong life.  The prohlcni in selecting a diet.for  tlie diabetic lies not. only in excluding the sugar-containing articles, but  in avoiding the starvation of the patient in so doing. Many of tho saccharine foods, those made up chiclly  of starch, for example, are very nourishing, and their exclusion from the  dietary exposes the patient to tho  dangers of insufficient nutrition. Tho  main reliance of the diabetic in the  way of food must be on meats, fats,  green vegetables and nuts. He should  take milk sparingly, avoid fruits, especially dried and preserved fruit, indulge in moderation in now potatoes  (which aro loss starchy ihan is popularly believed), and omit almost  absolutely bread, puddings, pies and  everything mado from flour. Fats  (cream, olive-oil and buttor) are of  special value, and the sufferer from  riinbote.*-. should got himself into the  habit of buttering lavishly everything  he cats.  In the way of drinks he may take  tea, coffee or cocoa (.without sugar,  of course), and water, but none of  the flavored waters, such as -lottled  lemonade, ginger-ale or soda which  are always sweetened.���������Youth's Companion  foet.

Eggs, meat, oysters, lish, or other solid animal  foods, produce acid urine. This  should be remembered by people  troubled witli urinary diseases. Ca-  ' tarrh of the bladder, or intlamalion  of the urethra, any irritation of the  urinary passages, is irritated and  made temporarily worse by acid  -urine. Therefore, animal food should  hc avoided. Perhaps milk, on account of its large per cent, of water,  might form an exception to this rule.  Vegetable foods, especially of the  alkaline variety, fresh vegetables,  tend to decrease acidity of the urine,  sometimes, indeed, they entirely re-  ,movc tlie acid reaction. Even acid  fruits form carbonates in the stomach whicli tend to decrease t'he acids  of the secretions.  On the other hand, whero tliere is  an excessive loss of phosphates, albumen, sugar, or any other vital  fluid, ihrough the urine, animal food  sliould be used, as it tends to keep  up" tho strength and furnish vital  forco. Wherever there is loss of vital  ���������"fluids tlirough the urine an animal  diet is always advisable.  But in cases of irritation of the  urinary organs, scanty, higK-colored  urine, animal food should be avoided,  for a' time at least, arid fresh vegetables substituted. The injurious effect of animal food upon tho urinary  organs may be lessened somewhat. by  the free use of pure water.   An exclusive milk diet will     some*  times"produce- alkaline-urine,���������which  is very desirable in cases of acute inflammation of the urinary organs,  such, as urethritis, gonorrhea,-and  the like.  this weary time Rosalie accompanied >-n  all India,    more than seven     tent  him    everywhere,    .taking an    equal  ]onK>  anl3 ns thick -as a mail's arm.

One good thing to do to prevent  this is to have two or throe changes  ' of shoes or boots whichever is worn.  Wear one pair to-day, another pair  to-morrow, and if the third pair is  owned, still another uext day. Keep  changing about. A shoe that is a  little too tight in some particular  place, may bo all right on other  parts of the foot. By changing to  ���������mother shoe relief i.s had* from the  peculiarities of the first shoo. Each  shoe has an individuality. Uy wearing it all the lime its faults begin to  produce bad effects, especially in cases of sensitive people, whose foot aro  tender.     Change  shoes  frequently.  Another good' thing is to bathe the  feet at night in cold water. "Rub  them dry with a  coarso towel.  When possible take off tlio shoes in  Uiio middle of the day, and rest tlic  feet. This can be dono in the office,  ns well as about the house. .Slippers  can be substituted in place of the  shoes.  Care of llii: feet is a very imporl-  nnt item to health and success.

A remarkable feature of the case was that  a woman and her daughter had gone  through tho marriage ceremony" with  thc same man.   The facts came    out in  nn   action  brought by Mrs7 A". Or Fitzgerald  against George Knight, telegraphist  nt thc head-quarter office of the First  Army Corps at Aldcrshot, for the  recovery of .CIO due to 'hor under n  deed of separation.  Mrs. Fitzgerald, it appeared, married Knight about twenty-two years  ago. She had then just returned  from India with her two children, believing hur lirst husband was dead.  Knight was then In the army. Before the marriage took place Mrs.  Fitzgerald ti'ld him tho story cf her  previous  marriage.  Some yours later her daughter left  her. Recently Knight discovered by  means of nn advertisement that his  wife's former husband was alive when  he married hor, and nlso by the same  means discovered the whereabouts of  tho missing daughter.  Th** daughter was reunited to the  family, ancl soon afterwards Knight  caused Mrs. Fitzgerald to sign a sc[i-  aration agreement, by which ho was  to pay h'er so much a week. Shortly  aftcrwnrds her daughter and Knight  left Uio house, and she then discovered that the former hail had a child  by Knight, and that he had married  ber.  In the agreement, whieh Mrs. Fitzgerald snid sho had not read, was a  clause to the elfect that if she interfered with Knight the allowance  wonld cease. All she hnd done was  to go to lior daughter to induce hot-  to Come hack to Iter.  Tho judge, tlio Tion.

Judgment was given for Mrs. Fitzgerald   with     costs,   nniid  loud     np-  me; and there I lay, too weak to lift  my'hand alone; and witli no oho  anywhere  within  hearing.

Tlie bravo little fellow never hesitated for a moment, but went right  at tho cobra like a tiger, and gave  it a hite that drew blood liko_ the  cut of a knife.  For a moment the snake drew bnck  and a quiver went all through it,  which flowed that it was bard hit;  but it .pulled itself together at onco,  threw back its head viciously, and  struck at poor Tommy with all its  force. But Tommy dodged the  stroke cleverly, and, fastening on tho  cobra, tooth and nail, gave him a  second bite worse than the first,  wounding him so severely that ho  was evidently weakened, nn<l began  to show signs of giving .way.  From the bed where I lay I cou.ld  sec the whole battle iquite plainly;  and ' you may think how tiying it  wns for me to have to lie there helplessly wliile a duel was being fought  out-upon which* my life depended.

Oo wliat"  ho might, let him try as hard as he  pleased to strike his enemy or to  coil around hiin, the snake might as  well have tided to hurt a shadow.  Brave littlo Tommy eR:aped him every  time, arid repaid each new attack  witli a fresli bite, making old scaly-  back twist and wiggle like ti speared  col.  At last, thc cobra, in its writhing  and flopping about, knocked over a  small table with a lot of glasses on  It, which camo down with a crash  that might have awakened a country  policeman on duty. The next moment there wn.s a shout and a scurry  outside, and,my chum, Harry Temple-  ton, camo bursting headlong into tho  room, just as tlie valiant Tommy got  hold of the snake by thc head and  fairly bit his head  oil.
