avoid the north and west coasts of
France. The Sta f e Department at
Washington believes that this action is
i intended as a warning against mines, j
rather than as equivalent to the dec- !
laration of a blockade.
The remnants of the Belgian troops I
which are still defending the little strip
j of their fatherland not in possession of
the Germans once more ar bearing the
brunt of the fighting in the west. Un
official reports from Amsterdam state
that the Germans are again making an
attack along the Yser, which was the
scene of the heaviest fighting and great
est loss of life of the war thus far dur
ing the earlier German attempts to :
break through the aUied line and reach
the English channel. For the last two
days Belgians and Germans have been
engaged in comoat, 1n which the pos
session of trenches has been decided
| with the bayonet. The Amsterdam re
, ports say the German attacks have
i been repulsed.
The struggle in the east is increas- j
: mg in severity as the Austro-German
i attack develops. Heavy fighting is now
in progress along virtually the whole
j front, except in Bukowina. An official
statement from Petrograd to-day re
ports a number of important victories
for the Russians. In Northern Poland
near the West Prussian border tho vil
lage of Skempe, for some time the scene
of a hard struggle, has been captured by
i the Russians, the report says. Further
south, to the west of Warsaw, the Ger
mans brought up masses of their first !
Hne troops and repeated their tactics j
of hurling oye regiment after another
at several positions. The Russian re
ports describe the attacks as furious
and adds that the Germans suffered im
mense loss, but were driven back. So
far as the report shows, there has been
no change in the Carpathians.
Russian aviators bombarded three
German mobilization centers, another
official report cays. The ra:d is de
scribed as successful, although no de
tails are given.
The surrender of Lieutenant Colonel
Kemp, the South African rebelv leader,
! is expected at Pretoria to bring to an
end the uprising. Five hundred burgh
ers and their officers laid down their
arms, and the surrender of Colonel 1

Have you ever seen a cat catch a

witnessed a scene of this kind. An old
bull bison had been the victim, and
the tigress had disabled him by break
ing one of his forelegs just below the
knee. She never'touched the throat,

the cubs to worry the disabled animal.
The eyewitness relates that the cubs
acted exactly like kittens, advanced
and retreated and worried the victim,

FIGHTING ALONG VISTULA
Petrograd, Feb. 4.—The general
stall of the Russian army to-dsry issued
a report on the progress of the war)
which reads as follows:
"In East Prussia our troops have
strengthened their positions near the
village of Cross Medunischken, on the
left bank of the Angerapp.
''On the left bank of the Vistula j
our encounters with the enemy have
become more frequent. Engagements of |
considerable importance have taken '
place on the front between Lipno and |
Be.june. Our troops took by assault j
the town of'Skempe, to the east of Lip- j
no, and repulsed an attack of the ene- !
my on the vilage of Blino, inflicting I
heavy losses on him. In this fighting
we captured the commanding officer of
the battalion, three other officers and

the fighting on the front between Bor
pimoiv, Coumine and Wola Czoanoska
continued February 2 with the same
energy. The enemy brought into this
engagement fourteen regiments of first
line troops and quantities of artillery,
including their heavy pieces. The ar
tillery fire was continued day and
night. An engagement of particular |
severity took place at the village of
Gonmine, where, after sanguinary
haud-to-h.md lighting. we repulsed the
furious attacks of the enemy. The Ger
mans here sustained immense losses, but
they continue to bring fresh troops I
forward to the fighting. A demonstra-®
tion of the enemy nlong the N'ida river
did not result successfully.
"The fighting iu the Carpathians is;
continuing and the engagements are be
coming more and more tenacious in
character. It is apparent that consid

RICH 'INDIGENTS' TO PAY
j State Officials Consider Recommending
tlie Ohio Plan of Compelling
Wealthy Relatives to Maintain the
Insane Persons in Institutions
I Creation of a commission to stop the
practice of committing lunatics to State
hospitals as "indigent" when their es
tates or their relatives have ample
funds to pay for their keep is being
considered seriously by State officials.
Nothing definite will be done before tho
(•eturn of' Attorney General Brown early
next week, however, as the matter has
virtually been placed in his hands.
Auditor General Powell is respon
sible for tihe / proposed step, which is
! designed as a' money-saving part of a
"good housekeeping" system for the
j State. Insane persons who really are
"indigent," that is, without any funds
I for their support at all, are, of course,
| a charge on tiie community and no one
!is disposed to sidestep responsibility
| tor their care. Either they are kept in
county hospitals or sent to State in
stitutions, and of the 19,000 such pa
tients of the State many are understood
to bo dependent entirely upon charity;
but Powell's investigations have led
him to believe that a large percentage
What It Costs the State
When an indigent lunatic is sent to
a State hospital the State pays bo the
institution $2.50 a week for main
tenance and the county from which the
! patient comes pays $1.75 a week. It-
I is said that in many instances when an
j "indigent" has been sent to a State
hospital the County Commissioners have
arranged to get their $1.75 from the
patient*B estate or relatives, but there
never is any one around the Court House
to look after the interests of the State.
Two years ago an item of $5,000 a
year was placed in the appropriation
for the Attorney General's Department
to be used in paying an attorney to j
| look up F.ueh cases. John C. Bell, then .
| Attorney General, retained John Hyatt
j Nay lor, of Philadelphia, for the work, j
The SIO,OOO appropriation is exhaust
ed, although less than $50,000 has been
collected by Naylor, and Nuylor is seek
ing a deficiency appropriation ol $5,000
form tho present Legislature.
Powell had some investigations of
his own made fast summer when he sent
three men to Ohio to study that State's
system at handling the same situation.
These men are Chauncey P. Hogers, one
of Powell's principal clerks in the Au
ditor General's office; James P. Wood
ward, present chairman of the House
Appropriations Committee, and Harry
S. M'Devitt, at the time chairman of
I tiio Economy and Efficiency Committee.
Their report, which Powell has not yet
made public, is said to l>e a geueral en
dorsement of the Ohio plan.
The Ohio Plan of Collection
It is said that in Ohio by having
a board of three commissioners the
State Ifas collected anywhere from
$155,000 a year to a quarter million.
Tho board does this on an appropriation
of $30,000, which includes the mem
bers' salaries at $5,000 a year each and
In addition to the general reasons
for desiring such a business-like ar
rangement, the Stato officials are im
pelled by the acute state of the finances
to scrape up every dollar they can-got.
Auditor General Powell points out sueh
a commission could collect back mainte
nance money from the estates or rela
tives of "indigents" who are not
indigent and would also stop further
payment by the State for the keep of
such patients. Therefore, income would
be increased and outgo decreased.
Another suggestion has boen made
that the State 'Board of Charities be
charged with this work, even if neces
sary to add to the staff of three paid
agents which it now has. No one is dis
posed to sanction such a plan, how
ever, unless the legislature should
amend the laws governing tho Board of
Charities and give it actual control over
institutions instead of mere supervision.

CLASSIC WAR POEMS
' Selected by J. Howard Wert
NO.B. the SOLDIER'S DREAM
BY THOMAS CAMPBEIL
In this exquisite poem. Campbell has sweetly, yet pathetically described
the feelings and yearnings of many a soldier's heart in any war and in any land.
Thomas Campbell, the distinguished poet, was horn,in Glasgow, on the 27th
iof .Tuly, 1 777., Owing to the straightened circumstances of his father young
Campbell was obliged, while attending college, to have recourse to private teach
ing as a tutor. Notwithstanding this additional labor, he made rapid progress in
his studies, and attained considerable distinction at the university of his native
city. He vary early gave proofs of his aptitude for literary composition, espe
cially in the department of poetry. In 1799, his first extended poem, "The
Pleasures of Hope," was published. Its success was instantaneous and without
j parallel. It is not too much to say, that it is, without an exception, the finest
didactic, poom in the English language. In 1809, he published "Gertrude of
Wyoming," which holds the second place among his lengthier poems, and to
which were attached the most celebrated of his grand and powerful lyrics. His
lyrical pieces, particularly "The Battle of the Baltic," "Marines of England,"
"Hohenlinden," and "Loehiel's Warning," prove conclusively that his concep
tions Were glowing, bold, and powerful. In the latter part of the poet's life
his circumstances were materially improved. In 1820, he was elected Lord
Rector of the University of Glasgow. He died July 15, 1544, and his remains
were solemnly interred in Westminster Abbey.
Our bugles sang truce, for the night-cloud had lowered,
And the sentinel stars set their watch in the sky;
And thousands had sunk on the ground overpowered,
The weary to sleep, and the wounded to die.
When reposing that night on my pallet of straw.
By the wolf-scaring fagot that guarded the slain,
At tho dead of the night a sweet, vision I saw,
And thrice ere the morning I dreamed it again.
Meth'ought, from the battle-field's dreadful array,
Par, far I had roamed on a desolate track;
'Twas autumn—and sunshine arose on the way
To the home of my fathers, that welcomed me back.
1 I flew to the pleasant fields, traversed so oft
In life's morning march, when my bosom was young;
I I heard my own mountain-goats bleating aloft,
And knew the sweet strain that the corn-reapers sung.
Then pledged we the wine-cup, and fondly I swore
Prom my home and ray weeping friends never to part;
My Httle ones kissed me a thousand times .o'er, *
And my wife sobbed aloud in her fulness of heart.
"Stay, stay with us—rest; thou art weary and worn!"
And fain was their war-broken soldier to stay—
But sorrow returned with the dawning of morn.
And the voice in my dreaming ear melted away.

MADE A RECORD FALL
It Was Remarkable, Not for Distance,
but for Results
Writing in 1841 of a fall from an ;
immense altitude which did not result ;
in death-, a French observer, M. Man- •
zini, declares that he had searched in
vain in the annals of science for a sim
ilar case. We can well believe it.
The victinwUSc patient was a tapis
sier, who had been engaged in putting j
ui* decorations on tho occasion of the
belated obsequies of Napoleon the
Great in the lofty dome of the Church
of the Invnlides in Paris. When busy
moving a ladder on the top of a high
scaffolding lie. overbalanced himself
and, in obedience to some obscure in
stinct, jumped clear of the ladder and
the platform, crying to his fellow work
men as only a Frenchman would, "Be
hold me quit!"
With these cheering words on his
lips, lie fell 82 feet, bounding in one
place off the roof of a little donn-,
which caused him tjo describe a second
parabola in the air, "and landing finally,
J feet first, on the slate roof of a small
Crashing through the slates, he land

sitting, surprised, but eoharent, for he

external or internal. At the end of a
month Pasquier found him quite well,

Springing the Needle Gun
The Prussians kept the secret of t l in'
1 needle gun for thirty years, and llu n
j sprang it on the Austrian army at -a
--! down with demoralizing'pffe t. Indeed,
' the effect of the Prussian quick firing
at that battle was more moral than
! material for the needle gun was of
j shorter range than (lip brocc/li loading
1 rille then in use in other armies. Still,
the sudden revelation of tiie secret in
tjie war with Austria had a good deal
to do with winning the victory. Tho.
needle }jiin had been complete I as an
j invention in 1836. The Prussians
stocked their arsenals with it, serving
| it out gradually and training a nucleus
of men in its use, and vet 1;opt the
world in ignorance for years that they
had an entirely new arm.—Manchester
