What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
Conquered Army Leaves their Forts In long, glowingly moving 'oolumns, four abreast, their tattered uniforms showing in pitiful contrast with the nobby appearanco of thoir Japanese guards, the members of the garrison of Port Arthur walked out of the fottTess and crossed the glaois pleading to the camps. Some walked with difficulty, and these were convalescents who had been pressed into servioe by dire need for fighting men. Not a man but seemed tired unto death. Their cheeks were pale and sunken, military train ing was gone from their bearing, some wore emaoiated to skeletons, their clothes hanging loosely about them. There were some with bandges around their heads, others with their left arms in slings. A very few of them walked silently. The others whispered among each other, a plain infringement upon disci plinary rules. ” There was no reproof, however, the buzz of their voioes was as a sigh of relief heaved by a giant. The days of torture and of suffering untold were over. For them the Russo-Japanese is ended. On their horses Japanese officers rode up and down the columns giving orders to the guards on foot, but there was no need for the vigilanoo. They game down the hill, their gait accelerating as they neared the goal. Further down they saw an imposing display of the successful power in the Japanese offi cers who had lined up to receive them as prisioners, to call the rolljrom the depleted lists and then to pronounce their fate. It may be assumed that the generosity o f their victors had spread into every nook and corner ol every fort ere the order to evaouate was given. Mercifully the Japanese offioer in charge of the surrender shortened the business as muoh as could be done un der the circumstances. Then the order to movo was given.

The Niohi Niohi says that while General Stoessel made a gallant de fense, his aotion in blowing up the ships after he had offered to surrender, leaves a lasting blemish on his military reputation. His act indicates a want of sincerity and leaves no room for an extension to him of treatment commen surate with the reputation won by the bravery and gallantry of his defense. The paper contrasts the aotion of the emperor in directing that full military honors be paid with that of General Stoessels. The Jijn characterizes General Stoessel's aotion aa mean and unlawful uad says that it should deprive him of any military honors at the hands of his captors. The paper also revives the oharges of Red Cross violations at Port Arhur and declares that no treatment would be too severe in fixing the terms of surrender Ayers SISTERS OF CHARITY Uses Pe-ru-na for Coughs.
