PUTTING A LIVING SENTRY IN A DEAD ONE'S PLACE.
Slnco the mldwlntsr campslgn of Napoleon In Russia almost a century
SJTO no great war has been vrsxed under such terrible climatic conditions
as prevail In Manchuria to-day. There was suffering Ih the trenches before
Hobantopol In thn winter of 1854-55, but nothing like that of the Japanese and
Runslntts along thn Shaho nirer. The work of entrenching la almost Impossi
ble, and at tho outposts the sentries have to be content with boles burrowed
In the ground. Walking- to snd fro with a background of snow to throw the
figure Into relief as a mark for the sharp shooter means death. Eren careful
burrowing, says the IOnJou Illustrated News artist, who drew the trraphia
sketch reproduced above, cannot always protect the Japanese sentries from
the Russian marksmen, and not Infrequently when the relief comes a dead
man has to be drawn out of the pit to make room for a living successor.

M. Rourler. who succeeds M.

Identified with the politics of the Re
public lie baa been repeatedly at the
head of the department of finance. In
which position he CJiUbllshed a reputa

ons In France.
The new premier began life as a
book agent. Subsequently he en
gaged In tho Russian grain trade, and
his business Journeya to Constant!-
nople, Odew, Smyrna and other ports
bordering on the Mediterranean gave
him a valuable and broadening train
ing. In IStIO, having acquired a com
twtonce, he encaged in politics and
through his efforts Gambotta was sent
to the CJwmber of Deputies from

A WORLD WONDEa
Trutniiian Who Muko People Under
taint u Station Numc.
William I. Crawford, a colored train
man, of Chicago, has reduced the call
lug of station names to a practical
system that has won for him the pralso
and hearty thanks of n million of pas
sengers. When ho lutlates ouo of the
healthiest pairs of lungs In Illinois,
opens his mouth, nnd begins to play
on a station name, no man, woman or
child falls to understand what It Is.
Crawford has been on the fast trains
of tho Illinois Central betweeu Chi
cago and Cairo for thu last ten years.
When he first became a trainman ho
noticed that n man or womnu would
look him squarely. In tho face while
he waa calling tho station, and tlint
about Uio time the train had got well
underway from tho depot at which tho
passenger wanted to get off, Crawford
would find him sitting lu his seat In
blissful Ignorance of his having been
carried past. This did uot happen
once, but many times, nnd tho ob
serving employo began to suspect that
people did not "catch" him.
In niauy Instances trouble arose
i ft 2 Jr L T m at Mr m lifl

from many different pronunciations of
ths name of a town. Different people)
put the emphasis on different sylla
bles, and this often created confusion.
The noise of the train In speeding over
the rails also made it difficult to mak
out what was being called.
"Finally," said the trainman, "t
concluded that I would first attract
the attention of every passenger la
the car and then call out the station,
emphasizing first one syllnhle and tha
another, using all of the accents and
Inflections I bad ever heard of. In
the course of time I got what I con
sidered the best way of Impressing
ths mind with particular nimM, and
we carried few people past their des
tination." Nature has greatly aided this man la
his work. He has a voice stngularljr
full and resonant When he breaks!
loose at the end of a car a half-awaka
passenger starts from his seat aa If av
steam calliope had started on ft ragi
