conclusions with the steel trust in the courts It will institute quo warranto proceedings against the Attorney General of the United States in an endeavor to conl pel Mini to show cause why this trust is permitted to con duct its business in violation of the Sherman act This is a logical move Judge Wing of Cincinnati recently forbade picketing or intercepting men while going to or from the factory

discuss their situation and devise means of bettering it Judge Gager of Connecti cut went further and issued an injunction forbiddingall these things and issued attachments against the homes the strikers had created out of their earnings and the bankaccounts they had set aside against sickness loss of work or misfortune J 1 4 4 t n 1 FREEI i21i21J1 x 1 1A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE tl1 1 1 1GIVEN AWAY

probability a general storm dis turbance central the last two days of August will still prevail in the middle and eastern parts of the country during the first day or two of September About the time of tho moons last ontthe 5th reactionary disturbances will show themselves when new storm areas will appear or general storms which may be advaucing from tho equator will become more pronounced- As we enter the regular storm period central on the 10th we may expect a very warm spell in most parts From about Monday the Oth to Friday the 13th barometic readings will become I disturbed and dangerously low depres sions will admonish of possible violence Storms of this period are apt to reach a crisis on and touching the 10th llth and 12th Tidal waves in the gulf and around the coast will be abnormally high aud tierce about the 12th and 18th In all probability general rain storms gales and changes ot weather will visit the interior of the continent at tins time as well as the coast region The magnetic and electric forces that nor mally lie dormant in our globe and atmosphere as a rule reach a maximum i state of unrest and activity about September llth- During the last days moon is on the equator on tho 2Gth full on tho 25thr and in perigee on the 29th Tidalti waves will rise to a maximum in many parts of tho earth during this period central on the 28th and 29th If touch of frost

Ethel M Colson aF CopjrichtlJWby Authors Sndlcat ii Little Minister everybody TllE board the Lucretia called him inevitably he was so very little and so obviously a minister And everybody before the Lucretia was three days out from Liverpool was gossiping about the little ministers devotion to one of the women passen gersthe woman with darkened eyebrows and hair a thought too golden Everybody would have gossiped still snore had everybody heard and under stood the whispered words which 9 roused the curiosity and wonder of the head stewardness on the evening when the little minister set everybody agog by escorting the yellowhaired woman down to the very door of her stateroom Courage Courage Do not despair was the halfcomprehended I ejaculation with which he bade her adieu And everybody again would have been nearly frantic with excitement I had the manner in which the two be cant acquainted been publicly known The yellowhaired woman was leaning over the rail of the promenade leek well forward upon the secondr day of the voyage when the little minister who had been watching her keenly from his unobserved seat be hind a music room porthole strolled easily to her side 1 wouldnt Dont think of it he said softly It really wouldnt be worth while Pluck up heart and take courage Your present sorrow will be over in a lifetime anyway youll be sorry for all eternity if you jump over board poor child Why Jo you speak to me like this cried the woman turning wide des Aerate eyes on his kindly face Because T too have been very close to despair he made gentle an swer and perhaps with far less reason than you have I have known despair for my own sins rather than the sins of others You have sinned nlso doubtless but you have been sinned against as well For a moment the woman looked as though she would kill him Then suddenly she laid her weary head down on the rail and he could feel rather s Press ently he stepped a little nearer and affecting to be deeply interestqd in the tossing water spoke to her again in a very low tone Dont give way hereand now he t exhorted tenderly Others are T Tmatching us you dont want to at tract attention Bear up a little long you have been silent so long I TjjgjiJUjt them think you are ill thttntuejacketeddeck some hot beeftea for this lady e immediatelyLet you my arm to the upper deck he suggested when the beeftea having been absorbed in a sheltered corner the task of screening her from the inquisitive glances of casual deckstrollers became a little difficult And there on the up per deck which was altogether too exposed and too windy to be anythin- Lot sertetlthe yellowhaired wom stn related her story She was moved thereto partly by the knowledge o This cloth and his fatherlymanner partly because she looked through the clergyman and saw that he was a man anti a gentleman as well mor than all perhaps because she had c reached the point where she could no longer contain the guiltburdened misery from which a womanly repellantcisIt was a pitiful story more pitiful even than the teller of it realized A desolate child fatherless motherless she had neverknown a real home or affection Tossed and buffeted from one unwilling unloving relative to an other she had pouted them all at 18 to fall in love with a man man years her senior and who had never borne a good name She had gone through the preliminary punishment of the lost in order to be true to him in his absence When a year after he bad bidden her goodby until I can come back and marry you he had sent h9 money and directions ioY cross the ocean and become his wif in Liverpool she had sacrificed her all deeming it no sacrifice but a joyous privilege to obey him Two years later inflamed with the fire of a new passion he had offered her a goodly sum of money to sign an agreement protecting him from any future demands or embarrassments and leav ing him free to marry the woman o- e In later choice as he had promised 1 1marryher Stung to the quick of the sensitive nature which had Ila tely known love fo- t the first time all but maddened des Aerate she had left hiih but withoui taking the money Now another year later she was using the

glances cast toward them by women whose hair was not yclfow and by men whoconsfderedffaceliou8 speeches concerning flirtatious par sons and the latitude of the cloth day after day lie induced her to postpone further compact with the Giant Despair at least untilshe had made effort a little longer And all went wen until the afternoon when he was powerless to fight the recurring battle with her companionship c maiden lady who wanted his views upon the Athanaslan ered question and also to talk about the yellow haired woman The little minister whose gentlemanly instinct rfver al towed him to discuss one woman with another found anxiety dispossessing his patient and polite boredom as IK noticed that the yellowhaired womai was leaning through instead of aver the rail But before he could carry out his swiftly formed resolu tion to go to her immediately there was the flash of a falling figure a sud den commotion and he rcaled that the longdreaded circumstance had come to pass He was in the water almost Rs soon as she was Three other men madeI themselves ready but were a trifle slower for various reasons Before they reached the rail the little minis ter had caught hold of the yellow haired womanwho struggled and fought him wildly Dont save me she gasped moan ingly I cant help struggling but I dont want to be saved Please please let me drown For all answer he slipped a hand under the little round delicate chin which told such a clear story of the weakness which loves and finds it hard to resist temptation pushed her- at armslength from him and swam as strongly as he might until a rope came to him over the stern of the ship First she was drawn on board safely then he followed and was hur ried downstairs for brandy and hard rubbing Almost before the two combined brought warmth and vitality back to the limbs which were so insignificantly weak and unfitted to contain the mighty spirit which up held them a message came to his stateroom The yellowhaired wom an hoped he had not been injured in touting to her rescue she would like to see hint to say Thank you when ever he should feel inclined to leavea epme mantled the surgeon to remain mo tionless for some hours When the aisles and staterooms had been emptied by the dinnergong the little minister traversed the fprjner and stood atthe side of the ycllow haired womanpatheticallytcenknnd younglooking in her physical

protective tariff league whose publication bureau is just now espe cially active in denouncing any republicans who favor a revision of the tariff is nisI informing its devotees that there are trusts in free trade England and therefore it cannot be protection that breeds trusts or fosters them so that something else must be looked for that is the mother of trusts This view of tthe matter is commented on by the Washington Times which 1IJShThe champions of the tariff pampered trusts in the United States have been in the habit of meeting the demand for the removal of duties from trustcontrolled products by pointing to England where it is said there are many trusts flourishing un der the banner of free trade That sort of argument may be satisfactory to those who are anxious to be satisfied but it ought not to be to one who is honestly seeking a remedy for what is undeniably a very great evil If the claim has ever been made that there are and can be no trusts at all without the aid of the tariff the claim has been thouglrtlesslyI urged by onlyn few not very weMin formed1 people Large capital and combinations in business are nearly always an advantage to those who combine Obviously an individual with a million dollars capital can make many profitable turns in business that are impossible to a man whose capital is only 5000 or 10000 This is true In England as it is anywhere else But the circumstance that large capital has an advantage in and of itself does not prove that it is wise rlIiCingitcomplete monopoly by tariff JawsI which operate directly to that end To illustrate If an English trust unreasonably advances the price to the consumer foreign goods will at once come in and bring the price down again In the United States the price may be set up 23 or 30 per cent and still the foreign goods cannot compete for the protection of the American consumer The result is that iie English trusts are forced to content themselves with profits no greater than flow nat urally from the advantageous working 01 their larger capital while the American trust not only has this advantage but a very ranch greater out in the tariff which enables them tj charge the American consumer 23 or 10 per cent more than the same goods are worth in the worlds markets The man who does not see the difference between the two cases must be either willfully Mind or most woefully stupid It is the artificial bolstering of thc tariff that has liter I ally made theUnited States the home 1 of the trusts andI mass swollen thorn to such proportions that the greatest
