Two Days' Bloody Battle Results la
Heavy Casualties Threo Ships
St. Pktbrsburo, Juno 22. A severe
battle, lasting two days, has been fought
near Haicheng. The Russian casualties
are given at 168 officers and 5,000 men.
The outcome of tho battle ia not
known, but from the fact that the Rus
sians give no flat announcement of vie
tory, it is presumed by the correspond
ents that the outcome is either in doubt
or that both sides withdrew. Official
announcements are expected and ex
citement in the capital runs high.
Tokio, June 22. The crew of a junk
which left Port Arthur a few days ago
and which was captured by tho Japa
nese, reports that two Russian destroy
ers and tbe steamer Shintaiping stauck
floating mines at the entrance to Port
Arthur harbor and were destroyed and
140 Russians killed.
Sport was very even in the Central
Provinces of India during 1903 Men

These figures are taken from a govern
ment of India annual report, showing
the ravages of wild beasts during tbe
period under review. There were four
man-eaters abroad in the Central Prov
inces which, by the way, are about the
size of Western Oregon, and between
them they accounted for the 190 human
The government offered a reward of
35 apiece for each man-eater, but this
sum had not once to be paid. A claim
was sent in, but it was subsequently
found that the animal killed was only a
deer-elayer or a cattle-lifter, and that
tbe destroyer of humanity has moved
into another district some miles away.
One tigress is known to have killed
no less than 43 persons in one district
alone during this period that is to say,
practically one a week. A man-eater is
the wariest of animals. Man being its
prey, it is careful to conceal itself from
its hunting grounds. A tiger, in spite
of its size, is most difficult to detect in
the shrub and grass, and sportsmen will
live years in jungles where to hear the
purr of a tiger at night is a common
event, but will never set eyes on the
royal beast except in a lucky chance.
In addition to this number killed br
tigers, ISO deaths in the Central Prov
inces during 1903 were due to panthers,
while wolves accounted for 50.
There is plenty of good shooting still
in India for men who have unlimited
time, nerve and health at their disposal.

You are not dead, dear Albert,
Or so it seems to me,
But only sweetly drea ming
Of heaven, home and mo.
I would not call you back again
To contend with grief and pain,
For what to us is a mortal loss
Is your eternal gain. ,
We" mourn your loss and always will,
But will strive to bear our pain,
And teach our little ones to live
So that we all will meet again.
Farewell to you our dear one,
We leave you in God's care,
And await with resignation
Until we too shall be called there.
You've started now on your last run
May angels pilot your way,
To that great and glorious station
'Where it's everlasting day.
Japanese 'Buried 1516,;Russlan Dead on
Field of Battle.
Tokio, June 20 2:15 p. m. General Oku reports
that he buried 15 15 Russians dead on the field, after
the battle of Vafangod (Telissu) and then the work
was incomplete. The natives say that the Russians
themselves buried and also carried away many of the
Tokio, June 20 3 p. m. Further reports received
here show that the blow inflicted at Telissu on June 15
was more severe than at first was believed. . The num
ber of Russians killed in tbe battle probably will ex
ceed 2000, and their total losses, including prisoners,
is estimated at 10,000. The Japanese losses are less
than 1000 or about one-tenth of the Russian total.
Up tb June 17, General Oku' had buried 1516 Rus
sians dead and be reports that m&ny more dead have
CbihVse wo witnessed the1 fighting from the Rus
sian side reports that the Russians removed many
dead men from the trains with their wounded and that
they buried or cremated many corpses in the village of
Huasungkou before they retreated.
The number of prisoners and trophies taken by
the Japanese is increasing. General Oku is not yet
able to report the total number of prisoners.
Many corpses found.
Washington, June 20. The Japanese Legation
has receivid'tne following cablegram from Tolcio:
"General Oku reports that the Russian corpses
which were buried by us near Telissu, after the even
ing of the 17th, numbered 1516. The corpses are still
being discovered, and it is believed the number will
be conslaerbly increased. The natives say that dur
ing the engagement the Russians carried back by rail
way a large number of their killed and wounded, when
about taking flight, they burned or buried many corpses
near Huksungkou. The number of rifles, guns and
men captured 'besides those already reported, is in
creasing, but the total is not yet khowri.
RUSSIAN LOSS ABOUT 7000.
Wounded! (Officer Says Nothing Could
Niu (fwANG, June 20 6 a. m. A Russian offi
cer who was wounded in the battle at Vafangow (Tel
issu) told an Associated Press correspondent that the
losses on both sides'were severe. He places the Rus
sian casualties at least at 7000. He says no soldiers
inthe world could withstand the Japanese as they
have been fighting lately. Their artillery fire, he
claims, is marvelously effective. The Russians fought
stubbornly, desperately, but were unable to withstand
the enemy '8 dashing persistancy.
Several hundred wounded Russians have been
sent North, owing to a lack of hospitals and
surgeons. All the availabe transportation has to be
used for supplies at the expense of the sick and wound
ed. The Japanese buried most of the Russian dead
after the battle.
It is estimated on the information obtainable that
the -force moving northward is 70,000 strong, with
90,000 men in the aggregate engaged in the operations
at Port Arthur. Several Japanese spies have recently
been captured a few miles south of Niu Chwang.
The Russians are becoming more vigilant and are
watching newspaper messages closely.
RUSSIAN REPORT OF LOSSES.

tailed report of the Russian losses at the battle of Va
fangow, given out this evening, places the toial at
3000 killed and wounded, mostly men who bel riged to
the troops forming the Russian right flank.
HAY'S LATEST ORDERS.
'Perdicaris Alive or Ralsull Dead'
Washington, June 22. Secretary of
State Hay has instructed Consul Gun
mere at Tangiera as follows : "We want
either Perdicaris alive or Ralsull dead."
The exact hitch in the negotiations is
not made public, but it is presumed that
Baisuli has become more ezorbitant in
his demands, owing to the apparent
agility with which his former requests
have been acceded to.
Tangier, June 22. The ransom de
manded by Raisuli for the release of
Perdicaris and Varley will leave here
tomorrow, and it is expected that the
captives will reach here Friday.

The usual type of burglar alarm ia ar
ranged to sound an electric gong and
arouse the occupants of a room or build
ing on entrance of a burglar, but such
an alarm obviously affords little, if any,
protection for isolated buildings such as
country stores, or the like, which are
unoccupied during tbe night. For such
buildings, what is needed is a device
which will cope with the intruder him
self, and not merely sound an alarm. A
method of dealing with such a case has
been invented by Lyman M. Beckes, of
Vincennes, Ind. It consists in a means
for distributing noxious fumes in a
room or building on entrance of the
burglar, so as to overcome the man and
prevent him from carrying out his un
lawful designs. The noxious material.
which preferably consists of lormal
dehyde, Is held In a light steel cylinder,
closed by a cork at one end and by a
wall at the other. A small tube closed
at Its outer end is threaded into- thio
wall, and serves as a holder for a charge
of gunpowder. A plunger In the cylin
der is formed with a shank which fits
into this tube against the powder. A
fine boating wire inserted into thi
charge is connected in a series with an
electric battery circuit. The circuit,
however, is normally open, but ia so Mr
ranged that iy stepping on a door mat
or in some inilnr way, th- burglar will
complete the circuit, igniting ami -x
ploding the cliarue, which will force the
plunder aud cork out, and discharge thr
formaldehyde. By arranging a screen
before the muzxle of tbe cylinder the
material on striking the meshes will be
considerably diffused, and the rising
fumes will mako it Impossible for tbe
burglar to remain in the room and re
