Hi- thiiiiis tlio greatest obstacle to the

There is nothing terrifying about "big

oven further than tho next President,
proposing (lovernnient ownership and

though he did not mention nny of the

of the trust question and referred to It

I'rof. Hark put forth the piopositlon
tlint tho trust development which o.ustu
to-day is but the spectacular climax to
the industrial concentration that ha.
been going on ever since tho birth of the
factory sy-tein. In the particular causes
that have led to this concentration hi
.places the de-ire r business, men t
escape the destructive cots of competi
tion, tho recognized advantage, in the
cost cheapening by means of wiving on
ores freight, selling open.os and ail
vertixing. the ndviuituge of accumulating
ini)ort..nt pat tits. Iir.inds and secret do-
vices, the fact that a combination of bus!
ticks can directly control supplies and re
late them to a real demand and the fact
that advantage i derived from the svstein
of checking oil one mill againf-t another
Tho very thing that should bo done in
rnguru to tiie triiits. rrol UarK says, is
to give the "fair lield" idea a thorough
trial This will come within the next
eight or ten years, he believe if that
fails he advocates trying the plan, a fea

In a fair lield. I'rof Clarl: thinks, it is
impossible to get actual monopolies, but
that thero will result a situation in some
lines of industry where the larger the pro-
uiicmg linn i lie i ie-aper will ie ine cost

the cheapest producer litis a complete na

Strung out in a line to starboard of

of girls und three handfuls of men, all
attired in bathing suits The lateness
of the season had no chilling effect on
their ardor, nor did tho rain of the morn

With tho Commissioner those hardy

Attired in raincovs and goloshes

but ycbterduy morning there were not

tho day their number increased, and by

a score or more, there were several hun

Commissioner Dougherty gave the
word for the lineup for the plunge, and
then bweaters and skirts were discarded
With joined hands the swimmers stood

W.tsui.NuioN, Jjov 1M Tenly-llve
thousand miles looking for a peach -that
is the stujiendous journey which has been
undertaken by Krank N Meyer, agricul
tural explorer for the United .States De
partment of Agriculture. The peach Is J
worthy ot the ell on, according to stories
that have crept into coast areas of Man
churia and eastern China
The peach is described by travellers
w ho have seen and tasted it aa the biggest
and most marvellous combination of ex
ternal beauty and internal lUAciousnees.
Threo pounds is tho apocryphal limit
ascribed tq the fruit by irresponsible na
tive of the wilds of went Chain. Mr.
Meyer in a report to the Department
promises a peach that will weigh at least
a pound and is as large as a muskmelon
This wonderful peach grows in tho prov
ince of Shantung It is known to the Chi
nese as the Kelt Chlug or Felt Tau.
No specimens have ever been brought to
the coast of China. Mr Meyer did bring
back with him from a previous journey
several scions of the I'elt Ching peach and
a number of seeds. The scions failed to
produce when grafted upon American
grown seedling stocks They had failed
to withstand transportation. The De
partment experimenters took u chance
with the seeds and have grown severul
trees at the experimental station at
Kayetteville, N C None of them has yet
fruited and it Is the belief of the experts
that nothing extraordinary will be (level
oped from I lie seedlings. Like other
fruits, the seedling peach only deelops
desirable fruit ings in rare instances. Ac
cording to l.uther Hurhank, hardly more
than one desirable seedling out of a plant
ing of 100,000 seeds is to be expected by the
ine .'s.wio nine journey ot Mr .Meyer

Another transplanted product of un
doubted commercial value which Mr.
Meyer brought back with him from China
is tho wood oil nut, from which is being
manufactured drying oil and varnish of
the highest quality, heretofore a neces
sary importation, but which tho Depart
ment of Agriculture lias recently proved
to lie both rcvidv of nccllnintlon nnri

industry is on a Profitable liasls. Tho

N'ot long ago the French Premier. M.

When he found his two sisters. Mrs.

Happ's community he warned them that
whatever money he might will them mus
not be given to the society, bu i must be
held under n separate trust.
In case of the sister's death while mem

When Huber died in 1R4.1 his fortuns
