wero Itttrred with mangled bodies and
severed heads and limbs. In ono trench
the Chlnesd burled throe hundred Jap
annso and two hundred Russians.
Whllo It Is true that the regular
water supply of Port Arthur has been
topped by the Japanese, the fortress
has other supplies, which can be taken
only when the rtty falls.
The garrison of Fort Arthur now has
sufficient food, but tho supplies' of
tinned meatH are nearly exhausted and
the troops are now slaughtering thir
ty dunkoys dally for fresh meat, which
in worth $1.20 por pound. Eggs cost 20
cento each.
A private letter rerelved at Cho Too
from Port Arthur gives further details
of the fighting. Tho attack began with
a heavy bombardment dlroctcd against
nearly all tho Russian outposts nnd
many of tho main furls. Tho shelling
of tho redoubts protecting tho water
supply of Port Arthur was ttcmendnus.
Nightfall found tlic waterworks ro
doubt reduced to mere heaps of dobrls.
Tho garrisons of the redoubts there
upon retreated safely to tho main for
tifications under cover of darkness.
The samo afternoon tho Japanese
assault on "High hill" began. The
Japanese plan of attach never varied.
First a bombardment nnd then nu as
sault, and when repulsed a bombard
mont again and then another assault.
Tho despcrato determination of the
Ju panose to capture this position
amounted to fanaticism, their efforts
nevor ceasing during four days. One
battalion of Japanese, having rotrcated

two muchlno guns In position behind
hastily made barriers. Their tenure of

tho Inner forts, wan very lnsocuro, and
when Lloutenant Poggorsky and tho
volunteers charged tho tldo turned
against them. One battalion, composed
of the remnants of two companies.

thoy refused to desert. Another do

tant Information for Borer Rxr-
termlnatlon Other'Newe
Dr. F. H. Snow of tho'UiilVeraUyof
Kansas reports that a number of elm
trees throughout the state are- badly
attacked by borers, two klnds'of which'
mature Into beetles, for which' thero la
no remedy except for tho cutting down
and burning of tho affected1 trees be
fore spring. Already a number of the
trees which have been grown for shade,
and perhaps 20 years old, aro1 wholly
dead, and If not destroyed clear' to the
roots together with those that are
dying wtll furnish breeding places for
the insects which will cscapn next
spring and endanger all tho healthy
trees In the vicinity If not In the town.
Tula Is tho most destructive borer ot
the elm in tho northern and eastern
states, often killing the trees by the
wholesale. More recently tho ravagos
of this borer have been observed by
Prof. Forbc3, whose notes aro copied
from his third report on the injurious
insect of Illinois:
"From the present appcaranco of the
elms throughout the towns of central
Illinois, where I have had an oppor
tunity to examine their condition, and
from, the rapid progress which this
pest has made among them during the
last two. or three years, it seems ex
tremely likely that it will totally ex
terminate the trees unless it be
promptly arrested by general action
Tho only remedy available Is unques
tionably tho destruction of affected
tiroes In autumn nnd winter before the
beetles have a chance to emerge from
the trunks. In towns this measure
should usually be taken by the au
thorities, since individual action could
not bo depended on to moro than palli
ate the difficulty. If every olm which
is in. the unhealthy condition above
described and which, upon examination
Is found to harbor those borers beneath
the bark, were cut down in autumn
and burned before spring, tho multi
plication of the borer might be ef-
raciuauy cnecHod; but If tho destruc
tion of the trees bo postponed until as
late as May. a part of all the beetles
maturing each year would escape to
carry the mischief elsewhere."
