To your correspondent the messenger said: "Tiflls and the entire Caucasus are In the hands of the revolutionists. The severe measures practiced by the authorities in other jiarls of Russia are inapplicable there. The situation is more acute and the population Is heterogenous and fren zied, while the garrisons arc small and politically unreliable. The supremacy of tlic revolutionists compelled me to discard my military uniform and to assume the character of an agitator carrying red flag proclamations.

"Not knowing how otherwise to facill tate my progress toward SL Petersburg, crossed the lighting line of the revolution ists on horseback. I was attacked by two Georgians and one Tatar. They took my papers and searched me for more Con scious of being in a hopeless position and liable to be shot on my arrival In St, Petersburg for the loss of the dispatches, in desperation I drew my revolver, killed the man who had the dispatches in his possession and recovered them from his body. Then remounting. I spurred on my horse. Finding I was pursued. I turned in my saddle and shot another of my as saltan ts and escaped. Had to Don Disguise. "On arriving at Rostov I found the town was no longer in possession of the au thorlties, and I was again obliged to dis guise myself and pay tribute to the revo lutionary leaders for a pass. I managed with great difficulty to reach Moscow, where the question of supremacy between the czar and the revolutionists was be Ing fought out in the streets. Still, the situation there seemed tranquil compared to that in the Caucasus. The revolution ists refused railroad transportation and traveling on horseback was impossible. owing to the lawless conditions in the districts, so T continued on to the Tver, disguising myself as a monk. Thence came direct to St. Petersburg. I shall remain here two days, awaiting the Czar's instructions, and then return to the Cau casus, where I trust my former experi ences win not be repeated.

The confusion culminated in a wonder ful dramatic controversy across the bodv of the dead student.

MUST DEPOSE THE MAXCHUS Only Hope of Modernizing China Is Opinion or Haynshi. LONDON. Jan. 12. (SpccJaL)-The pub lication of the Chinese-Japanese treaty Is an Important event, supplementing the treaty of Portsmouth. Viscount Hayashi. the Japanese Ambassador to the court of SL James, said to a correspondent: "The chlcr object of Japan in this sup plementary treaty was to open all ports of Manchuria to foreign trade and so get all the powers interested In the continued independence of this part of the Chinese Empire. China herself will be unable for many years, perhaps centuries, to protect her own Interests. I do not believe the glowing reports of the new military devel opment in China. Such reports have cropped up frequently during the last 30 years, but have never been realized. Re member that the Manchu dynasty depends for its existence upon the obliteration of military spirit among the Chinese. If that spirit took root, the dynasty would in stantly be destroyed. Therefore, what ever outward steps may be taken, the Manchu government will always oppose real military reform. "China's only possibility of becoming a Mrong military power lies in the abolition of the Manchu dynasty, and there is rea son to suppose that this will happen in the near future. In other respects the v.niucsc remain impervious to western thought. For example. Wu Tine- Fiintr-r. turned from Washington full of Western Ideas and became secretary of the Wa Wu Pu, or new Foreign Office, at Pekln. but It was soon discovered that ho was too pro foreign and he was removed to the crim inal department. mere is nothing new In the recent antl-forelgn outbreak at Shanghai.

The missionary said last night: anc strong anu-rorelgn feeling in t hlna is due In a large part to the de feat of Russia by Japan. The Chinese are awakening to the fact they arc not a subject people. "The feeling against the United States is very bitter because .of the exclusion act. xnis reeling Is heightened by Imag inary wrongs and exaggerated descrip tions of Indignities heaped on Chinese in this country, as sent home b- the Chi nese in the United States. "But China as a whole lias come to the oeuei mat it is easier and cheaper to carry on a negative war against the I nlted States than to attack missions and kill missionaries. The country has learned that where there Is no violence there Is no punishment to folio;?. This feeling is confined to the coast cities, however, and I do not believe that It would be irafo for an American to venture into the in terior provinces. "What the more Intelligent Chinese want Is that the exclusion act shall be Intelligently interpreted, and shall be en forced only against those classes whom It Is meant to affect."

RHEUMATISM Rheumatism docs not come on in a day; the n KUnuCOl causes that produce it work silently in the system for years. This insidious disease becomes intrenched in the blood, and some exposure to cold or damp weather, or slight indiscretion brings on an attack. Poor digestion, stomach, troubles, weak Kidneys, torpid Liver, and a general sluggish condition of the system are responsible for Rheumatism. Food souring in the stomach poisons the blood, the failure of the Kidneys and Liver to act properly leaves waste matter and impurities in the system, which, coming in contact with, the natural acids of the body, form uric acid. This is absorbed by the blood, and as it penetrates to the muscles, nerves and bones produces the terrible pains and aches and other disagreeable symptoms of Rheumatism. Life is madea torture by its excruciating pains, nerves are shattered, the health un dermined, andif the disease is not checked it breaks down the strongest con stitution. It will not do to depend on plasters, liniments, etc.; such, treatment is helpful in easing the pain and reducing the inflammation, but does not reach the blood where the real trouble is located. S.
