criticiem. Composing the Company are

One of the most remarkable cases of a
cold, deep-seated on the lungs, causing
pneumonia, is that of Mrs. Gertrude E.
Fenner, Marion, Ind., who was entirely
cured by the use of One Minute Cough
Cure. She says: "The coughing and
straining so weakened me that I ran
donn in weight from 14S to 92 pounds.
I tried a number of remedies to do avail
until I used One Minute Cough Cure.
Four bottles of this wonderful remedy
cored me entirely of the cough, strength
ened my lungs and restored me to my
normal weight, health and strength.

Nic CnwAso, March 14. After the re
moval of the battleship Retviisin, four
Russian steamers, the Harbin, the
Hailar, the Ningnnta and the Sungari,
were anchored at the mouth of the en
trance of Port Arthur in proper portions
and sunk, leaving only a small channel
available, Vice Admiral MakarofT having
previously ordered the whole fleet to re
main outside with steam up, economy in
coal being unnecessary.
This dispatch is "on Russian informa

firming the idea that Vice-Admiral Ma

a desfierate ellort to tring together Rus
