WASHINGTON , July 30. There la
n growing expectation at the State de
partment that news o the utmost Im
portance may be forthcoming nt any
moment ttom Pckln. It was oven
thought that something might be re
ceived today , but thin hope was
doomed tq disappointment. The few
cablegrams Inat were recolVbd re-
ferret ! to minor matters nnd'did not
touch at nil upon coritlltlona in the
Chinese capital. It is , boliovcd that
the basis for this expectation is' the
knpwlcdgo on thoi part of officials , that
certain machinery heretofore' set In
motion mny result In the opening up
of communication through some se
cret nnd reliable channel. It is known
' .hat a second effort has boon made by
our own government to got another
message from Mr. Congnr and that
pearly all of the powers also have re
sorted to private ngonclec in their own
internet with a like object.
The fact hsa Just btfon developed
that ono of the last acts of the late
Colonel' Llsc'im before his death at
Tlon Tsln was to undertake the dlH
patch of n , spy to Fekln. General Dor
ward , the British commanding officer
nt Tier. Teln , also sent out two mes
sengers and it is believed tlir.t the
Japanese did the same. Up to date
not one of th * inoaHcnijrcrB'haB ' returned
to Tien Tain , nor has there been a
single word heard fr6ni any of them.
This fact , however , has not caused the
abandonment of hope , and this is true
In particular of the message expected .
from Mr. Conger.
Minister Wu is perhaps the basis for '
this hope on our part and he main
tnlna unshaken coiifldnnco In his orlg
Inal assertion that the iifiws , when it
docs come , will show that the lega-
tinners arc alive. The mesJ-ngc re
ported to have come through Mission
ary Wilder at Che J'oo Is regarded
as most promising.
Minister Wu had no cablegrams himself * -
self toduy , nor had th'j State depart
ment any directly from China. Noth

without horses for the Sixth cavalry ,

ports , mounted cavalry Is needed for

6 degrees below the normal.

Ono of the most Interesting , pictur

slonal man on the verge of nervous
prostration , as well as the sufferer
from rheumatism , kidney and skin
diseases for which the baths are es
pecially beneficial. The place Is also
largely patronized by those who only

The country is very hilly , but the
roads are all graveled and kept la

attractive to those afflicted with rheu

rheumatism can indulge in. Some or

We call the attention of our read
ers to the advertisement of St. Mary's
Academy which appears In another
column of this paper. The 46th year
opens September 4th , 1900. We do not
need to expatiate upon the scholastic
advantages of St. Mary's for the cata
logue of the school shows the scope ot
work included in Its curriculum , which
is of the same high standard as that
of Vassar and Bryn Mawr , and Is car
ried out faithfully in the cl , ss rpqms.
We simply emphasize the spirit of ear
nest devotion which makes every
teacher at St. Mary's loyally strive to
develop each young girl attendant
there Into the truest , noblest , and most
Intelligent womanhood. Every advan
tage of equipment In the class rooms ,
laboratories and study rooms , every
care In the matter of food and cloth
ing , and exceptional excellence of cli

are found nt St. Mary's , In the perfec
tion of development only to be ob
tained by the consecration of devoted
lives to educational Christian work , In
a spot favored by the Lord. The Flno
