"M. Von Plehve was a great man

shown In his handling of every prob

The Official Messenger says:
"His death is an irreparable loss to
all truly patriotic Russians. He was
a faithful servant of the throne and
of the fatherland. He was intellectual
and of firm will, not sparing himself In
health, strength or private Interests
where public duty was concerned. He
did not accomplish all he set out to

son. Is said to be a very worthy per
son, a good father, a faithful son, the
hnsband of a minimum of Moslem
wives, and a thrifty and euterprlslng
genius, with a turn for commercialism,
which has raised him above his for
mer humble estate a downtrodden
peasant In the tolls of Jewish money
lenders. He and his fellow vlllugers
were falling ever deeper in debt to the
Jews; the more they puld, the more
they seemed to owe, and they felt the
tolls closing around them. Then
Ralsull had, a brilliant Idea; why not
burn the Jewish village and destroy
all evidence of Indebtedness at one fell
swoop. He tried It, and his conse
quent emancipation was the beginning
of a new life for Rataull, who Is said
to be a second Namgay Doola, a red
headed, red-bearded savage of great
muscular force and few scruples. He
has prospered In the work of village-J
burning, and has an enthusiastic fol
lowing, for whom he is what Napoleon
was for the Old Guard. He Is even
very likely to rival Bu-H&mara, the
pretender, who nearly shook the throne
of Morocco a year ago. As flu-Ham-

herents of Ralsull have Increased and

PORTLAND. OREGON-. 1
Incredible stories have been told
from time to time of the queer meth
ods which men have resorted to In
order to gain Information of an Irrel
evant nature. All have heard about
the fellow who flagged the flying ex
press train because he wanted to learn
from the engineer the time of day.
But to fly signals of distress out In
mid-ocean and get a steamer to come
close enough so that the latest war
news from the orient can be learned Is
supposed to be the limit. This Is what
happened to the steamship Nlcomedla
of the Portland -Asiatic line on her
last outward trip to the far east The
story is told by the Japan Daily Her
ald as follows, the clipping just having
been received at the Portland office of
The anxiety to obtain news of the
war is much greater in those who "go
down to the sea In ships" than with
the 'landlubber who leisurely pursues
his dally budget In the newspapers,
and all sorts of schemes are em
ployed to obtain the "latest;" but the
cheekiest we have heard of was per

Two miles from the University of
Michigan lives a farmer professor, the
most eminent of Michigan's scientists,
ho ha given up his scholar's chair to
plant seeds and raise crops. Ask any
of Michigan's 4000 students, "Who, Is
Professor Joseph Heal Steere?" and he
will not know. Ask the greatest Eu
ropean scientist the same question, and
he will know, and will spend an hour
describing professor Steere's exploits.
Professor Steere holds a place as one
of the world's muster minds In zoology,
and for this the scientists of Europe
know him. But he has recently di
verted the brain power of a lifetime's
study away from science to a scheme
of raising onions and celery, and for
this exploit his own university, two
miles away, has forgotten him.
