pain in my back and hips If I sat

Kidney Pills and went to taking
them and what do you think that very
night I went to bed and I slept till
morning I got up and thanked God
for the nights rest and Dodds Kid
ney Pills I know that Dodds Kid

Very Plain In Some People
A great many people go on suffer
ing from annoying ailments for a long
time before they can get their own
consent to give up the indulgence
from which their trouble arises
A gentleman in Brooklyn describes
his experience as follows
I became satisfied some months
ago that I owed the palpitation of the
heart from which I suffered almost
daily to the use of coffee I had been
a coffee drinker for 30 years but I
found it very hard to give up the bev
I realized that I must give up the
harmful indulgence in coffee but I
felt the necessity for a hot table
drink and as tea is not to my liking I
was at a loss for awhile what to do
One day I ran across a very sen
sible and straightforward presenta
tion of the claims of Postum Food
Coffee and was so impressed thereby
that I concluded to give it a trial My
experience with it was unsatisfactory
till I learned how it ought to be pre
pared by thorough boiling for not
less than 15 or 20 minutes After I
learned that lesson there was no
trouble Postum Food Coffee proved
to be a most palatable and satisfac
tory hot beverage and I have used it
ever since
The effect on my health has been
most salutary It has completely
cured the heart palpitation from which
I used to suffer so much particularly
after breakfast and I never have a re
turn of it except when I dine or lunch
away from home and am compelled
to drink the old kind of coffee because
Postum is not served I find that Pos
tum Food Coffee cheers and invigor
ates while it produces no harmful
stimulation Name given by Postum

TOKIO According to advices from
Manchuria Field Marshal Oyamas

begun against General Linevitchs

general battle The Japanese have
concentrated heavy columns on the
Liao river and their advance divisions
have been in contact with Russians

Fakoman to Bashienchen

overwhelming force forcing the latter

the Japanese advanced and drove the
Russian infantry out of the village of

ambush and all the party except five

Four Rusian torpedo boat destroyers
from Vladivostok appeared westward
of Hokkaido off Sub yesterday They
seized and burned a small sailing ves
sel and imprisoned the captain and
disappeared to the northwest They
were evidently returning to Vladivos
tok There is a possibility that they
have destroyed other small craft al
though no reports to that effect have
been received
The object of their visit is not clear
It is thought that probably they hoped
to torpedo the Japanese patrol at
night and it is also suggested that
the Vladivostok vessels plan a diver
sion to assist the fleet of Admiral
Noon Although none has been
sighted it is believed the larger ves
sels of the Vladivostok squadron ac
companied the torpedo boats which ap
peared west of Hokkaido yesterday It
is doubtd that the torpedo boats
would venture across unescorted in
the heavy pea which was running
when they luirned the sailing vessel
All of the crpw of this vessel ex
cept the rapiain who was captured
succeeded in landing but a steamer
dispatched to the rescue of the burn
ing derelict was forced to return on
account of the storm The Russians
poured kerosene on the deck of the
sailing vessel and withdrew after hav
ing burned the surface of the oil The
toipedo boats have not been reported

Had Interferred With Many American
Treaty Rights
WASHINGTON Minister Allen at
Seoul Korea reports to the state de
partment that a magistrate at Penyang
who was charged with invading the
treaty rights of many Americans and
with extorting great sums of money
illegally from the people finally has
been removed from office His pecula
tions according to the report aggre
gated more than 100000
Under date of March 10 Minister
Allen writes
Americans in Penyang have com
plained of the conduct of the magis
trate Paing Han Chun because of his
oppression of the people and because
of his interference with American
treaty rights When war broke out it
was supposed that this man would be
turned down by the Japanese but he
was clever enough to make himself
useful in securing lands and other
military requirements for which he
received payment but failed to hand
over the money to the natives I was
obliged to complain of him because of
his conduct toward the Americans
and in September 1904 spoke to the
Japanese minister of my difficulties
and intentions
America and England Accept Each
Others Inspection
WASHINGTON Formal notice
from the British embassy has reached
the department of commence and labor
that both the government of Great
Britain and tne Dominion of Canada
have issued orders to accept Ameri
can certificates of inspection of the
hulls boilers machinery and life-saving
apparatus of steamships In ac
cordance with an agreement already
reached the American government
will issue a similar order to all officers
at American ports with respect to the
certificates of inspection carried by
the British and Canadian steam ves
sels This reciprocal arrangement will
facilitate materially the clearance of
vessels at all ports of the three coun
tries and will relieve from much em
barrassment and expense the owners
of American British and Canadian
steamships as the only survey re
quired will be one to determine sim

Federal Grand Jury at New York
Looking Into Matters
NEW YORK It became known
Friday that the federal grand jury for
some time past has been conducting a
secret investigation into certain mat
ters concerning the American Tobac
co company and its subsidiary com
panies The investigation is being
made by Henry W Taft brother of
the secretary of war who has been
appointed a special assistant United
States attorney for that particular pur
pose Mr Taft is authority for the
statement that the investigation is be
ing made under the anti trust law
The proceedings in tho grand jury
room were secret but it became
known that E F Hale an officer of
one of the subsidiary companies re
fused to answer questions when he
was called taking the ground that to
do so would tend to incriminate and
degrade him and that the answers
would be too voluminous When the
grand jury filed a presentment in the
circuit court Hale was directed to re
ply to the questions It was through
Hales refusal to answer questions
that the investigation became public

The admiralty has information that
a Japanese division of fast cruisers
and torpedo boat destroyers was sent
south for the purpose if possible of
crippling or destroying Nebogatoffs
ships before they could effect a junc
tion with those of Rojestvensky and
there is reason to believe that the Jap
anese took up a position in the Straits
of Sundy through which Nebogatoff
originally intended to make the pas
sage into the northern sea There is
rso reason to believe that Nebogatoff
first approached the Straits of Sundy
but finding them too well guarded put
about and headed north for the Straits
of Malacca his division lacking tho
protection of fast cruisers and being
at a great disadvantage in meeting
torpedo boat attacks
The admiralty expresses much grati
fication at the fact that Admiral Ne
bogatoff has successfully reached the
China sea but appreciates that the
composition of his division renders it
particularly vulnerable to a swift ad
versary especially as the crews of his
ships have not had tho training in
maneuvering or the target practice
which Admiral Rojestvenskys crews
had while off the island of Madagas
car and the anxiety here will be com
pletely relieved when it is known that
a junction has been effected

closed and it is impossible at this
hour to ascertain whether Russia will

ence of Japanese warships in neutral
waters of Dutch Borneo The Admir
alty had information to the effect that
Japanese cruisers were watching the
straits of Sunda lying in wait for Ad

that they made use of the waters of
Dutch Borneo

worthiness of the Nixon boats in the
performance of the Grpgory which
