TORPEDO BOAT FLOTILLA
DID DANGEROUS WORK
Detailed Story of Naval Battle Sent to
MiKado by Admiral Togo
Toklo, June 26, 6 p. m. (Delayed In
transmission.) Admiral Togo's de
tailed report of his effective attack on
rort Arthur last Thurshay night
reached Toklo today. The report con
firms the reported destrucUon of a
Russian battleship of the Peresvlet
type, the disabling of a battleship of
the Sevastopol class and a protected
cruiser resembling the Diana and the
tcturlnz of a torpedo destroyer but
throws no light on the Russian plan.
The entire Russian fleet steamed out
to sea in line of bottle. Suddenly
when within 14.000 meters from the
Japanese fleet the Russian fleet re
fused battle and steamed back to an
anchorage outside the harbor where
iurlng the night the Japanese destroy
ers and torpedo boats made eight des
perate attacks upon It The Russian
vessels re-entered the harbor on Fri
day, since which time it has failed to
In his report Admiral Togo says:
The exit of the Russian fleet from
Fort Arthur harbor began early
IThursdey. The battleships Peresvl
et, Poltava, Sevastapol, the armored
cruiser Bay&n, the protected cruisers
Palada. Diana, Askold and Novik
came first, a steamer leading them
A warning flashed by wireless tele
graphy by the Japanese patrol,
brought up Admiral Togo's fleet at
full speed to a series of prearranged
Three flotillas of Japanese destroy
ers and torpedo boats steamed close
to the harbor entrance and watched
fiie Russian vessels. At 11 o'clock the
Russian battleships Czarvitch, Retvi
xan and Pobleda Joined the ather Rus
sian ships outside the harbor. Sever
al steamers and boats were engaged
in clearing and exploding mines In
crder to make a passage seaward.
Captain Asia, commanding the Japa
nese torpedo flotilla, attacked the ves
sels engaged in clearing out the
nines and hampered the work.
At 5 o'clock seven Russian destroy
ers appeared and the Japanese vigor
ously attacked them. One of the
Russian destroyers which was hit and
set on Are retreated to the harbor
burning. The Novik attacked the
Japanese who scurried away.
The vessels engaged in clearing the
larbor finally made a passage and
the Novik led the Russian fleet sea
ward. In the meantime, Admiral To
go concealed the position of his ships
and at 4 o'clock sent the third squad
ron out into the vision of the Russians
with the object of drawing them sea
ward. The Russian fleet stood south- j
eastward and then southward. During
this time Admiral Togo concealed his
squadron south of Gregan rock. As
the Russians approached Admiral To
go assembled his fleet and prepared
ts attack. At 6:15 p. m., the Russians
were in plain sight eight miles of Gu
gan rock. The Czarvitch led and nine
others followed in a single line. The
Kovik and seven destroyers were
placed at the right of the line. Admi
ral Togo waited, with battle flags fly
ing from all the tops. The Japanese
fleet formation represented the first
letter of the Japanese alphabet in
At 7:30 p. m. the Russians headed j
for the Japanese and Admiral Togo
veered slightly to the right in order to i
bring pressure against the head of the ;
Russian formation. At 8 p. m. the ,
Russians changed their course and :
headed northward. Admiral Togo fol-J
lowed in a long single line ordering the 1
destroyers and torpedo boats to pre-1
pare for an attack after sundown. j
At 8:32 p. m. the small flotilla,
swung around the rear of the Japan-v
ese fleet and headed toward the Rus-
Bians at full speed. At 9:30 the four-j
teenth flotilla delivered the first at-!
tack on the Russian fleet now in the
rear of a point five miles outside the ;
entrance to Port Arthur. Immediately !
afterwards the fifth flotilla delivered J
a second attack. The Russian fleet!
was confused and it was Impossible
for it to retreat quickly into the har- j
tor on account of the narrowness of
the channel and possibly the low tide.
At 10:30 p. m. the Russian fleet an
chored in a single line extending from
the foot of Wantsucing Fort to the
base of Chentaorhan. During the
night the torpedo flotillas kept up con
stant attacks on the Russian fleet
going In eight times
The most effective attack was that
f the sixteenth flotilla which at 11:80
p. m. caught the Russians rounding
Cheshen. The first class torpedo boat
Shlrataka, Commander Wakabaynshl,
sent two torpedos into a battleship of
the Peresviet class. She was seen to
sink in a volume of smoke and fire.
Other effects of the attack were not
observed on account 0 the heavy
firing which cast . volumes of water
over the flotilla and the heavy cannon
adlng which rent the air. The search'
lights from the ships and forts also
blinded the Japanese.
At dawn Friday a reconnaissance of
the entrance was made by the fourth
and fifth flotillas whose reports con
firmed that of the patrol ships as to
the Russian's losses.
Admiral Togo says the moonlight
and the narrow line of the enemy pre
vented his fleet from Inflicting greater
damage. The Japanese loss was unex
pectedly small. The destroyer Shira
kump was struck In the cabin and
three of her crew were killed and three
wounded. . .-
The first class torpedo boat Chldort
was struck in the engine room. Tor
pedo boats 64. 66. and 53 were dam
aged. The others engaged were unin
jured. Concluding his report Admi
ral Togo says:
The effect of the attack and the
small loss must be attributed to the
Illustrious virtues of bis majesty."
A PERFECT CUSTARD.
Easily Prepared and Always Sure to
(By Alice Cary Waterman.)
What could be more dainty, delicious,
palatable and nourishing that a per
fect custard? 'Only milk, eggs, sugar,
salt, flavor and Dunham's Cocoanut!
Looks like an easy proposition to put
these simple materials together to make
a custard, yet there is nothing "hit-or-
mlss' about the "blessed assurance" of
the custard that never falls to come
out of an oven In perfect condition.
Underlying the success of a custard
are scientific laws, antl there are cr
tain proportions to be allowed, too, that
guarantee perfection as the result.
Whenevere milk and eggs are com
bined the greatest care should be exor
cised in the management and control
of the heat, so that the custard may be
cooked at a temperature that will co
agulate the eitge and not curdle the
milk. The custard should be Jollylike
In consistency. Arm yet delicately ten
der. In this condition It will possess
greater nutritive value, because It ran

safely relished by the Invalid as heart

Many a man who Inquires after your

VACATION TIME. Vacation time should bring
rest, recreation and comfort; and comfort of the solid
and pleasing variety means no high collar, no stiff
hat and no Itching scalp. It Is for this last dis
comfort that Newbro's Herpicide becomes a summer
necessity, as It stops itching of the scalp and Prickly
Heat almost instantly. Take Herpicide with you on
...SCALP WARNING.. Itching of the scalp is not
so much a punishment for past neglect as It Is a
warning for the future. It shows, almost consluslve
ly, that the vine-like, mierobic growth that causes
dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair has entered
the Sebaceous glands and unless this growth is stopped
and kept out of the scalp, baldness will follow.
...IT IS CONTAGIOUS.. It was Prof. Unna (ask
your doctor about him), who first pointed out that
the true cause of hair loss Is a germ or microbe that
lodges in the scalp where It causes dandruff. Being
of mlcroblc origin the disease Is necessarily contagious
but Dr. Sabouraud has recently called attention to
the highly contagious nature of dandruff, and the
necessity of constant watchfulness to avoid it. Kill
the dandruff germ with Herpicide.
UNSTERILIZED PUBLIC HAIR-BRUSHES, says
Dr. A. Cartaz, are to blame for most
of the baldness that Is prevalent
today. He further states that,
"baldness begins in the young." By
this he means that the germ that
causes the disease is planted In the
scalp of young men and that some
times years elapse before the de
struction is complete. ,
WILL NOT GROW HAIR.. Newbro's Herpicide Is
a "Hair-Saver;" It will not grow hair nature
does this but by destroying the enemies of hair
health, It enables the hair to grow as nature intended
except In chronic baldness. Save your hair with
Herpicide. Wonderful results follow its use.
HOT WEATHER TROUBLES.. During hot weath
ed the minute sudatory glands of the scalp are called
upon to perform an extra amount of labor. The per
spiration that exudes In Increased quantities must be
handled promptly as It carries out poisonous and re
fuse matter that would otherwise clog up the pores of
the scalp. Incomplete elimination of refuse matter
produces a hot and feverish condition of the scalp,
familiarly known as Prickly Heat, for which Herpi
cide gives immediate relief. Ladles will find Herpi
cide indispensible. It contains no grease, will not
stain or dye. It is an exquisite hair dressing that
