surcease for their dying agonies.
"Eventually, aa in similar instances
which were to follow, we retired,
leaving the work of driving the enemy
from the sum-sit to the resistless
guns of iha neighboring forts, notably
those of Liaoti mountain.
"The Japanese adopted a ouhous
expedient wbich assisted them great
ly in tha third assault. They had
party ol seven Russians wno lets Port
Arthur in a sailboat December 16.
"The Japanese were compelled to
clamber up the slopes of tbe hill, in
many oases without firing, in the face
of one of tbe most murderous deluges
ever poured torn rifles and maohine
guns. I was there and it saemed to
ma that flesh and blood would ba nn
able to stand our fire for a minute.
The enemy went down in squads and
companies, but always toere wer
others grimly coming forward. Their
bravery was beyond praise as was
that of our own men. Sometimes
tba fighting was hand to band, with
the muszles of tbe rifles at tha breasts
of the contestants, the bayonets be
ing used as swords. The sid 's of tbe
hill were strewn with bodies and the
snow was crimsoned with the blood
corn stalks wbiob tuey ignited, tbe
wind being' in tbe faces of the Bus-
sians. Tbe resultant fire was im
mense and the flames and smoke oom
polled the Russians to retire.
"The red glare from this fire dis
oiosed a ghastly picture more infernal
than ever dreamed by Dante.
"The assaults thus far bad cost the
Japanese easily 11,000 men while our
own were under 2000 Tbe sides ol
the hill were' literally covered with
dead and wounded. The trenches
were rivulets of blood an every vis
ible spot was dyed crimson .
"Wa might retake the hill,' said
General Stoesael but tbe hi'I is not of
sufficient importance to us to Justify
further sacrifice."

some time past.
Tbe party, consisting of Mrs. A B
Oonley, Ed Conley and wife, and 3 J
Conley, have been visiting In several
plaoealnthe eaatern states and also
in tha southern states. They were
pleasant visitors at tha St. Louis Fair
and visited relatives in Illinois. They
slso vieited New Orleans and in El
Paso Texas, where they witnessed aev
era! bloody Spanish bull fights. The
entire party was well all the time they
were gone and expressed themselves
as delighted with .the entire tour, and
well pleased with the courtesy with
whloh they were treated at every point
on the trip. After meeting the party
oeeded with them to the Catalina Is

J P Wilbur superintendent of tbe
Union Woolen Mills, closed a deal
Thursday by which a great "aale was
made. 127.000 worth of white blan
kets were sold to one Boston firm.
This is the largest individual sale ever
made by tbe Union Woolen Mills or
for that matter by a ry woolen mills
of the northwest. Two other orders
have also been received of recent date
involving $3000 each. At this rata
in order to comply with tbe demands
for another year tbe oapaolty of tbe y
mills will have to be about doubled.
Mr . Wilbur ii the most thoroughly
skilled woolen mill man in tbe north
west today and the gtgantio propor
tions of the business of tbe mills is
wholly due to his efforts. It is lar
gely to the interest of tbe people -of
Union that Mr. Wilbur remains here.
Should bis connection be severed with

A Store With
A Record
We have been doing busi
ness in this town for 5 years
Iu that time the town has
nearly doubled in population
During the same tine our
business has increased FIVE FOLD. ' In other words
our business has made a great deal more rapid increase
than the town has. There are dozens of reasons for tnis
all of which you will perceive if you begin buying drug
store goods of us. In the first place we had a thorough
training for pharmacy. In the second place we had ex
ceptional opportunities for learning the practical side of
'pharmacy in a successful drug store of the highest stand
ing. In ttie third place we have kept our eyes wpen nnd
attended to business until we know the deaan lj of "the
people of this town. " "

was to the effect that the check was
worthless and that the party waa want

checks. The yoang man who passed
the check had not removed the goods
from the store, and when he returned
for them his attention was called to
tbe fact that tbe Herald had stated
that no cbeok bad been issued to bim.
He expressed himself as greatly sur

for the check and when it waa banded
