Armies in Deadly Conflict. World Awaits the Results. Armies Engage in Terrific Conflict in the Triangle. Mukden, Oct. 12.—A bloody battle is now raging about six miles north of Yental Railroad station. Tho Japan- ese on 8undny fell back along the whole of the north front and the Rus- sian advance guards crossod the Sohili River (about half way between Muk- den and Liao Yang) and came within three miles of Yentai. Yesterday, however, the Japanese received strong reinforcements of infantry and artil- lery, and not only hold their positions, but even assumed the offensive. The lighting lasted the entire day and night. The Japanese directed their artillery fire with great skill and searched the Russian positions so fiercely that the Russians fell back north of the Sohili River, which crosses the railroad seven mlh3 from Yentai. The Russians this morning resumed their advance, once more crossing the Sohili River, and engaged the Japanese two miles south of it. A terrific artillery engage...

Underfed Chfldren. There are 122,000 underfed chil dren in the city of London. This, according to Dr. Eitholz, who makes out a strong case in de- fense of the statement that there is physical deterioration in Eng- land. The World Growing. The world's -* population has ' more than doubled itself from 1880 to 1900. To this increase the Lat- in nations of the West and South- west contributed the least, and the greatest growth was in the East Duoke Refute to Swim.

ABOUT COTTON GROWING. An Optimist Write* in a Hopeful Way About Cotton. Much has been eaid and written ibout boll weevil in Texas, and great fear entertained on the part of farmers where the pest has done its most destructive work. That the time is near when the hereto- fore money crop of this State, cot- ton, can no longer be grown, except in a limited way, and that the farm- ers of cotton growing States will be forced to turn their attention to other products. But when we calm- ly rcflect over the history of cotton growing in Texas, the past thirty years, we recall how the eiop suf- fered in 1875 from boll worms, army worms and catterpillars to the extent that when the crop was gathered many counties produced but a bale to ten acres, and that*in tome localities it took twenty acres to make a bale; and then coll to mind the seasons when the yield was so great that hands could not be had to gather all the cotton; when the thousands of gin* throughout the State of Texas and her siste...

Japan's Finances. For thft first six months «f the present calendar year Japan's for- eign commerce amounted to $165,- 260,000, an increase of $14,235,000 over the corresponding period of 1903. The classification was: Imports $94,415,000, increase $8,530,000. Exports $70,845,000, increase $5,705,00. Sonsidering that Japan was at war for five of the six mouths covered, this is a remarkable good showing. Regular government expend- itures, ordinary and extraordin- ary, were $119,715,000, a decrease of $24,805,000 from the first half of 1903, while the revenue of $128,400,000 was only $17,385,000 less than last year. Consequently there was a gain of $7,420,000 in the national finances. The note issue of the Bank of Japan was $116,035,000, an in- crease of $10,700,000; but at the same time'the bank's gold reserve of $46,395,000 showed an increase of $10,110,000, only $590,000 short of the increased issue. In the five months ending with Mav, Japan's export of gold and silver was $36,149,0...

\ JAPS EXPECT A LONG STRUGGLE. SOMETHING BREWING AT MUKDEN. Tokio, Oct. 7.—In addressing the members of the United Clearing Houses of Tokio to-day, Count Oku- ma, the leader of the Progressive party, warned the people to pre- pare for a long,war, the date of the termination of which it was now im- possible to foretell. He predicted that the cost to Jngan for a two years' war, including the loans which had already been placed and the expenses consequent upon wai at its termination, would total one billion dollars, which would make the per capita amount to $S0. Count Okuma said that corrup- tion appeared to pervado tho mili- tary, political and financial depart- ments of the Russian Government, and this corruption had almost reached a climax which .threatened' revolution. ..It was eyen reported that Lieut, General Stoessel, now defending Port Arthur, and upon whose shoulders rested the respon- sibility for the loss of a large share of Russian prestige in East Aia, was guilty of dissip...

REMINDER OF OLD TIMES. T rnei Hoi m* pal pa tcfi P5 tt yv w t" a I 1 Oiok Smith Drop* Into Some Rem- inisoenoes. "Elliot's Specials" for August contained a little advertisement that attracted our notice and left with us an abiding impression. Having put away this particular "Specials" for the sole purpose of preserving the little ad. as a pleas- ant and refreshing reminder of old times, it has since occurred to us that it could be appropriately and perhaps beneficially used at the present tipie as a sort of text for a short sermon to boys, with a few pious observations by way of paren- thesis for the benefit of those who are more or less responsible for the existence of the boys. Here is the little ad., just as it appears in "Elliot's Specials:" Wanted.—A position in some city office as an apprentice. Have worked four years as job and news hand in small town and wish to complete trade in some good office so I can join the union. Write 116, Elliot's Specials, Dallas, Texas. Now, what...

■ Texas News \ Colorado ^aasassssssMWsa^ssafiMMasMssasasMas To my Subscribers THIS is an urgent appeal to you all, no matter whether you live in the county or not, and I want to have a heart to heart talk with you. As I have just purchased the interest of Mr. Fryar in the business, I have, of course, some very heavy obligations and debts that must be paid when they become due, and 1 must have money from my friends who owe me, in order that I may pay these debts. I find that is at least $350 due me on subscriptions, and while the amount is small to yoii, if you will just consider that if the 800 subscribers in Mitchell county would only pay me 50c each it would mean 3-100 to me and I could pay almost out of debt. I hope each one of you will look at this matter in the proper light and determine after reading this letter that you will call in and pay me a little the next time you come to town. It will be appreciated very much and will help me to make far greater efforts to give you a b...
