According to his friends, the health of
Mr. H.tirimrin has been Kreatly improved
during his sojourn In Kurope.
Arrangements have bwn made for Mr.
Harriman to sail from Chertiourg tomor

Kaiser Wilhelm II.
MUNICH. Aug. 17.-When E. II. Harri
man left here last Sunday by automobile,
Intending to proceed by easy stages to
1'ails. it was stated by his secretary, Mr.
I'rice. that the financier intended to take
a ('unard boat for New York at the end
of the month.
. Mr. Harriman looked well and friends
who accompanied htm from Salzburg to
Munich say that he was In good health
and excellent spirits. While nt the Hotel
rteglna here, Mr. Harriman refrained from
taking active exercise and only made short
automobile trips through the nearby coun
try districts. A large amount of mall
and numerous telegrams were received by
Mr. Harriman while In Munich, but he
replied to very few of them, as he de
sired to keep business entirely out of his
head and to rest while In Europe. He
was well protected from callers during his
visit by his secretary and servants.

Interest in view of the recent reports In
Wall street t lint he had obtained an option
on a controlling interest lit the New York
Central lines, which would give him. an
ocean to ocean route. T)ut that this Is the
reason for his return Is but speculation,
for no statement has been made to that
effect af the Union Pacific off;ces here or
by Mr. Harrlman's associates. It was even
Qld'.'at -the Union Pacific offices today
that no word had been received of his
contemplated departure from Cherbourg
The coincidence of the return at ft time
when the New York Central rumor cropped
out strongest, however. Is Interpreted by
Wall street gossip to moan that he will
exercise the option upon his at rival here,
covering about $50.000,0n0 worth of stock
foimerly contt oiled for the most part by
the Vanderbilt interests.
Hecause of the "onfllctlng reports con
cerning Mr. Harriman today reports that
lie would start home this w eek. reports
that he would not, and reports touching
on his health the so-called Harriman
stocks . fluctuated wildly, and the market
generally was unsettled. Union Pacific
broke from 215H to 210i, but. late in the
afternoon, when the report of his home,
coming was confirmed, Union Pacific
ralllecj and there was a general recovery

obtained control of the road.be true, re

F. J. TugKart of the Joyal hotel, Omaha,
injected an interesting and timely question
into the hotel mn'.s meeting Tuesday after
noon that is liable to bear fruit and ef
fectually settle .the" bad check question,
which is the bane of all hotel men.
No class of business men in the country
Is more imposed upon by bad checks and
drafts than the hotel men. Nut because
they are particularly easy, but the very
nature of their business compels them to
do a large check und draft cashing busi
ness, modt of which is perfectly good.

Mr. Tagfgart's proposition is that t!:e
hotel association stand back of the prose

be prosecuted Instead of being compi-omUi d
This, he held, could be brought about
through the natloual association, the local
and state associations puylnx an annual

is compromised, is only an encouragement
for the check or draft worker to repeat
the operation. If, on the other hand, he
knew that lie would certainly be prose

The plan could be operated just aa the
Bankers' Protective association Is operated,
and the culprit could be prosecuted where

encountered and then either captured or
Bine Detachment Annihilated.
How expeditiously and scientifically this
was accomplished was best Illustrated at
Mlddleboro Green. Here Major Charles H.
Cutler of the Blue army, with three skele
ton companies of the Flghth infantry, was
encountered and rendered noneombatant in
quick time. While .the Connecticut squad
ron of cavalry engaged. . the Blue'j front.
Major Urierson of the Reds,.- with his three
troops of the Tenth 1?nlted States cavalry
(colored) dismounted, and acting as Infantry
and supported by two machine guns, turned
the right flank of the Blues, while at the
same lime Major Brldgeman, with the Xe.v
York cavalry, executed the same movement
on the left. If it had been actual warfare
It is believed that there would pot have
been a Blue soldlur left half an hour after
the engagement had begun.
General Bliss in his advance , placed all
his cavalry, consisting of five troops, on
his left flank and they easily dislodged all
the Blue infantry on General Pew's ex
treme left as the advance was made. Gen
eral Bliss moved his two brigades massed,
the first under command of Brigadier Gen
eral George 11. Harries and the second
under Colonel Daniel , APPleton, together
with the Twenty-second regiment of en
gineers and all his field artillery. He ar
rived at Eddyville, where the road forks to
the east and north, at noon. Tiie first
brigade took the eas'ern road, which carried
it around Pew's left end, while the second
brigade took the northern road, heading
directly for Boston,
Blue Wins Decisive Victory.
On tills northern road the Blue army
gained a decisive victory that did much
to make up for the . reverses at Mlddle
boro green, and the precarious rondlllun
of the left wing. Tho second brigade of
the Red army had proceeded less than a
mile along the northern road when it re
ceived a genuine surprise. Companies G,
H, M. and D of the Eighth Infantry, under
Major W. H. Perry, occupied a magnifi
cent hill-top position supported by bat
tery B of Worcester. The entire Blue
force was well concealed with tlie battery
posted so that it could sweep the highway
with a plunging cross-fire. Into this trap
tlie Red army marched. Tho Red front
had advanced well Into the trap when In
fantry and battery opened a murderous
cross-fire. At such a range In actual
warfare, the front of the Red brigade
would have melted like snow before an
April rain. Tlie red brigade fell back
while General Bliss endeavored to gut hlB
artillery located. Before he could do this
1 o'clock arrived and hostilities were sus
pended for the day.
Today's battle took place under condi
tions strongly resembling those of the
Peninsular campaign about Richmond In
the civil war. These country roads, for
days Inches deep in the dust of a long
summer drouth, were changed into rivers
of mud before the most severe northeast
rainstorm of the summer. The soldiers
suffered severely. Tlie suspension of hos
tilities brought no relief, as the rain con
tinueB In torrents. Tlie shelti r tents of
both armies were quickly s.mked through
while the ditches dug around them filled
with water and overflowed into the tents.

of removing fat exactly like nature Intend
it should be done. They stop the dlgeatlve
oigarik from, producing fat. They seek out
tlie fat as II lies around the body and re
move it at tlie rata of from 11 to Id ounces
, a day. These little tableta are made from
;tha great Marmola prescription and c.m
