BATTLE IS RAGING
Defending Fleet Has Taken
Many Batches of Prisoners
Washington, Aug. 25. A naval bat
tle is anticipated off the Atlantic
coast today. - Admiral Helm's defend
ing forces will clash with the Red ene
my fleet, naval officers here said.
The naval censor refused to divulgt
the probable point of contact between
the fleets. It is believed that cruiser
squadrons may already have met in a
preliminary engagement, but the main
battle squadrons of capital ships have
not yet come together.
A number of marine hospitals along
the coast were today notified to pre
pare to receive "wuunded" sailors
and to report at once on facilities for
handling the cases. Stores of medical
supplies are at the same time ordered

them as soon as the engagement off
Several batches of prisoners taken
by the defending fleet have been dis
patched to New York, Norfolk and oth
er navy yards.
Regarding nn intercepted radiogram
from the defending fleet yesterday,
telling that the transport train of the
enemy fleet was sighted, nothing fur
ther has been heard at navy head
quarters. Oificers said today they thought the
report was scut out to deceive the at
tacking fleet, but there 1s some belief
that this opinion was g:ven to cover a
leak in the censorship. Fear is felt
I that this information may have reach
ed tne enemy neet when the latter
stopped merchantment out of Atlantic
ports and took off their newspapers.
It was rumored here tocay that to pre
vent such action Admiral Helm had
been instructed to take off newspapers
irom vessels going heyonrt his lines.

People are realizing more and more
every day that the kidneys, just as do
the bowels, need to be flushed occa
sionally. The kidneys are an diminu
tive organ and are constantly working,
separating the poisons from tho blood.
Under this continual und perpetual
action they are apt to congest, and
then trouble starts. Uric acid backs
up into the system, causing rheuma
tism, neuralgia, dropsy and many
other serious disturbances. Doctor
Pierce of Buffalo, New York, advo
cates that every one should drink
plenty of pure water between meals.
