that time the Wabasn train run

the car had plenty of time to cross
the track. ;When it was half way

Clark rose briskly when called

no statement to make, - but left a
letter directed to his mother at
Olympia, who has made every ef-

Clark was 28 years" of age, the
son of a widow and had' received a
good education. Several years ago
he fell into bad ways. . He killed
Leila Page, his mistress, because
she was about to leave him for
another gambler. He accompanied
the woman to her apartments in
the tenderloin of Olympia. During
the night he cut the woman's taroat

Then the murderer cut his own
throat and took poison, but recov

W. H. Harrison, Cleveland, Miss.,
writes August 15. 1902; "I want to say
a word of praise for Ballard's Snow Lini
ment. I stepped on a nail, which caused
the cords in my leg to contract and . an
abscess to rise in my knee, and, the doc
tor told me that I would have a stiff leg,
so one day I went to J. F. Lord's drug
store (who is now in Denver, Colo.) He
recommended a bottle 01 snow liniment.
I got a 50c size, and it cured my lee. It
is the best liniment in the world.

tonight from Tckio to the effect that
General Kuropetkio, with all troops
which were on the north side of the
Taitze river, is now marching as
rapidly as possible toward Mukden.
The report adds that this follow

who succeeded in cutting off Gener

army is now surrounded on the
south side of the river and hopeless

desperate fighting has followed an
attempt ot that part of the Russian
army which has been defending it,
to cross the stone bridges and join
The advance of Kuroki toward
the railway line was so effective
and pressed so hard that the fight
ing finally became a parallel race,
Kuropatkin being compelled to ad
vance toward Mukden as rapidly as
the Japanese general attempted to
outflank him and thrust his forces
between Kuropatkin and that point.
The report contains no estimate
of how many men are in Stakel
burg's command, but it is presum
ed they number nearly 50,000. The
opponents have been so close today
that the Japanese were actually
against the Liao Yang walls. The
fighting wan continuous and des
perate, but report has it in Tokio
that" the Japanese were success
ful. only in this, that they prevent
ed the Russian rear guard from
joining Kuropatkin's retreat.

M. btrond, Midlothian, Texas writes,
May 31, 1901. "We have used Herbine
in our family for eight years, and found
it the best medicine we ever used for con
stipation, bilious fever and 'malaria."
