- Portsmouth, Aug. 29 The long
and bloody war between Japan and
Russia is ended. The terms of
peace were agreed upon - by Mr.
Witte and Baron Komura at the
session of the conference this morn
ing, and this afternoon the prelim
inary arrangements for an armis
tice were concluded and the actual
work of framing the "Treaty of
Portsmouth" was turned over to
Mr. DeMartens, Russia's great in
ternational lawyer, and Mr. Danni-
son, the legal adviser of the Japan
ese foreign office. The treaty is ex
ptcted to be completed by the end
of the week.
For the sake of peace Japan,
with the magnanimity of the victor
at the last moment, yielded every

budge from the ultimatum of Em

Rooeevelt. No indemnity under
any guise, but an agreement to di

The two Mason Jar caps has been examined. Upon examination the metal of the
new Mason cap was found to be pure zinc. The small, pin holes in the old Mason cap
were undoubtedly caused by the action of vegetable acids. As a result the fruit in the
jar must have been greatly contaminated with poisonous zinc compounds.
1 regard the nse of jars with zinc caps as very unsanitary and even dangerous.
