PORT ARTHUR TO BE STORMED.
Japs Have Concluded They Must Take

News from Toklo savs:
Port Arthur Is to be taken by storm
tho moment proper preparations have
been completed. Siege guns have yet
to be placed in position and tho land
forces appointed for the assault havo
to bo strengthened. The unexpected
loss of two fine vessels have empha
sized tho Insecurity of son power and
tho authorities feel that no chances
must bo taken that would encourage
Russia to send out the Baltic sea fleet,
counting on finding a harbor of refuge
in Port Arthur.
It is realized that the storming of
tho fortress will inevitably cost many
lives, but it Is said that the waters
where tho Japaneso ships aro forced
to maneuver are becoming so dan
gerous because of floating mines that
heroic measures nro imperative. Un
der these circumstances it is thought
that life will be economized by storm
ing the stronghold and eliminating it
and the ndjacept waters from the area
of actual conflict.

A Farmer Found It.
Mount Pleasant, Utah, May 23. To
find a medicine that will cure every
ailment due to diseased or disordered
Kidneys has been tho aim of many
physicians and chemists.
Mr. C. E. Peterson, a farmer of this;
place says ho has found such a rem
edy and that he has tried It with suc
cess in his own case. Mr. Peterson,
says the remedy is Dodd's Kidney
Pills, a medicine introduced here
Lbout seven months ago.
"I am glad to bo allowed to testify
to what good things Dodd's Kidney
Pills havo done for me. I used this
remedy for Kidney trouble and it
cured mo completely.
"I can heartily recommend Dodd's
Kidney Pills to all who suffer with
any kind of Kidney trouble."
Mr. Peterson's caso Is only one of
many Just as convincing that have
been reported recently. This now rem
edy seems to have conquered Rheu

having been reported where Dodd's
Kidney Pills have failed to cure per
