Elizabethtown, the county seat of
Essex, in the Adirondaeks, possesses a
comedy jail, according to tbe Philadel
phia Ledger. It is small, having -windows
secured by wooden bars and a
jailyard inclosed by. a solid fence of
three-quarteMnch boards, which a
health ymale could push oyer with his
shoulder. But tie prisoners rarely, if
everjittempt to escape. Some good
stories are told by Judge Kellogg,
Judge Hand and other residents. It ia
a custom to allow the prisoners out
on parol, so that they may cut the
grass on neighboring lawns, do gar
den work, or repair roads for the vil
lage or county. Recently one prison
er, who should have returned at eight
o'clock, did not apply for admission
until nearly an hour later. The war
den angrily demanded to know the
reason, and added: "Don't let this
occur again, or I will not allow you
to corns in. I lock the door at eight
o'clock, and Wont open it in the future
for you." Another accused of end
aw&iting trial for manslaughter, over
stayed his parole and pleaded as an ex

There ia gradually developing a dis
position to admit the possibility
that after all Japanese torpedo boa's
may have dropped minfs nt the en
trance to Port Arthur harbor. An
official remarked to tbe Associated
"It would be far better if. the
ship was actually blown ' up by the
enemy's mine ir.st?ad of by a Rus
sian. The latter would be the re
sult of inexcusable carelessness and
wot 1J properly arouse the empe
rorv anger. The former while it

era liaess, could not really be a
' Ua dark nighte, it would" be al
most impossible for the searchlights
of 1 he batteries to pick up torpedo
be a s, however carefully the light?
Even if it should finally be estab
lished that a Japanese mine de
stroyed the Pctropavlovsk, it will
not effect the general appreciation
of Vice-Admiral Miikaroff's high
qualities. HispQiicy baa been thor
oughly approved in St. Petersburg,
where it is understood that such
action would hiave n excellent ef
fect on the morals ol" the Russian
fleet. ' As the adrnkl's instructions
were to conserve his ffcet, it was
pointed out that it was his duty to
return directly to the harbor on the
appearance ol a superior force. It
could hardly be expected that the
admiral would lok out for mines
when he had no reason to believe
that they had teen laid, especially
aa only a tew hours before he bad
safely steamed over the spot where
the battle ship was sunk.
St. Petersburg, April 15. A tele
gram from Admiral Alexieff from
Pott Arthur to the Emperor says
that from 9:15 o'clock this morning
to midday the Japanese flett,in two
divisions, bombarded the fortresses

Liao Tshan promontory, firing 185
The Russian squadron including
the battle ship Pobieda, replied from
the anchorage by a plunging fire.
The batteries also participated. The
losses on land were seven Chinese
killed and five soldiers and three
Chinese wounded. - - -."'".
The Russian warships sustained
no damage and there was no loss of
life on them. . , . '
This attack is taken-here to show
that Admiral Togo hai not . given
up his purpose of damaging the
rest ot the Russian' ships, now that
there is little possibility of their a-
gain going to sea. . Uc questionably
ve is aware of the effect of his pre
tious bombardment, and the fact
that be has repeated it indicates t i
the officers here that - be believes
mere is a good cnance ot a projec
tile hitting a target. 'In order to
drop a Bhell into the harbor or city
a bigb-a gie tore is necessary. This
is the reason the Japanese squad
ron tot k up a portion at Hao lsban.
Other bombaraments were from tbe
same point, which, at the time, did
cot seem to be within the range of
tbe ttuseian batteries. ..;
It is net known whetVj the new
guns- which have been installed at
Port Arthur command this point,
bat it is certain that Togo's ships
escaped without material damage.
The abandonment of Vice-Admiral
Makarofi'a policy of taking the fleet
to tbe outer roads to return the
Japanese fire is shown in the report
of Viceroy Alezuff that 'his ships
bred over the hills.

Eight months ago I was so ill
that I was compelled to lie or sit
'down nearly all the time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could keep nothing on it
and I vomited frequently. I
could not urinate without great
pain and I coughed so much that
my throat and kings were raw
and sore. ; The doctors pro
nounced it Bright 's disease and
others said it was consumption.
It mattered little to me what
they called it and I had no de-
sire to live. A sister visited me
from St. Louis and asked me if
I had ever tried Wine of Cardui. "
I told her I had not and she
bought a bottle. I believe that
it saved my life. I believe many
women could save much suffer- .
ing if they but knew of its value.
Don't you want freedom from
. pain? Take Wine of Cardui
and make one supreme effort to
b3 well. You do not need to be
a" weak, "helpless sufferer." You
can have a woman's health and
do a woman's work in life. Why

I do not now feel blue and bad
I laugh and talk and take ray ease
I come and go just as I please
I tell you what I sold my home
When I listed it with White k Stone.
I was feeling very blue and sad
My wife she made me almost mad
She did not want on the farm to stay
She wanted to sell it and move away
So I listed it for more than a year T
And still I found myself right here.
The agents they took my place in hand
They were so sure they could sell the land
I sometimes think tbey did not try v
For they never brought a man to buy.
Tbey gave a wink with a knowing smile
Andried to fool me all the while.
With that knowing smile and wink
Thay could not fool me don'tyou think
I saw they would not sell my home
So I listed it with White & Stone
You bet I found them Just and true
They will do your work all right for you.
They will always help if they can
They deal with you as man with man.
They are always ready with good advice
And they are not afraid to advertise
So if you would buy or sell a home
Just have a talk with White & Stone.
