Now, ns waists and skirts come

men will undoubtedly buy them in
black, navy or neutial .shades, so
that the Reefer waist or jacket
may be worn with another skirt of
any color. Yet the economical Idea

We have many other styles besides

The Scnnlor Hns an Exciting Fight
With a Wild Animal-''Scminoie
Jim," Comes to His Rescue.
From the Philadelphia Inquirer.
San Lucie, Fla., March 22. Senator
Quay left here Saturday morning for
Washington greatly pleused with his
recreation and play, as he calls It here.
He caught a fine tarpon Friday after
a hard tussle und wound up the day
with u little wild animal adventure.
After thev had finished securing the
tarpon the party landed one mile south
of the senator's house and it being late
thev started to walk up through the
low hummock that borders the river
though as a usual thing few care to go
through it at night. The big tarpon
was carried on a pole by Seminole
Jim. Mr. Quay's guide and attendant,
and Sam Huik. They had not proceed
ed over 200 yards when, as thev were
passing under a big live oak, an un
earthly scream was heard and a dark
body dropped down upon the aston
ished bearer of the llsh and began tnk
lng huge mouthftils of the tarpon,
growling angrily all the while. The
men were thrown down by the animal's
weight and were too astonished at
first to know what had happened.
"Much d panther," shouted Jim,
as he saw the beast's eyes like coals
of lire glistening in the dark near him
and lie picked up a big light wood knot
and started for It. Rurk drew his big
fish knife while the senntor drew his
little pocket revolver nnd begnn blnz
Ing away. The shots only enraged the
beast and it turned to spring on htm.
Jim jumped forward and brought
his henvv club down on the animal's
skull with n thud that almost stunned
It. It sprawled down, but In n moment
was up again nnd ready to fight, snnrl
Ing and showing Its teeth. Sena
tor Quay fired several shots and then
Jim again attacked It. Hurk got a
chance to give it a jab with his knife,
and a general mix-up ensued. Jim
managed to get In n good blow and
knocked the beast over. Then snatch
ing the knlfi, froiu-'Kurk he dashed In.
his wild Seminole blood up. nnd by
rare, good luck Inflicted thr (lenth
blow upon the screaming, struggling
nnlmal without getting hurt.
it was a good-sized male panther,
but In poor condition, being almost
furnished. The smell of the fresh fish
Is doubtless what tempted the attack,
as this Is the first time such a thing
has happened In this section, especial
ly with houses so near. The hide will
be stuffed and taken to Heaver Falls
to adorn Mr. Quuy's llbraiy.

BATTLE WON FOR
THE SUGAR TRUST
An Ohio Judge Decides Against Arbucklc
IT IS A MOST IMPORTANT RULING
Xot Lawful to 1)1 ivo n Competitor
Out of l!usiness--(;oods Jlnv He

Companv, lor Which
Toledo, March 22. The long expect
ed decision of. Judge Morris, of the
common pleas court, In the suit of the
Arbuckle Brothers ngulnst the Sugar
trust was delivered this morning, and
It Is In favor of the latter.
The suit was brought by Thomas
J. Kuhn and the Arbuckles, owners
of a minority of stock In the Wool-
son Spice company, of this clty.ugulnst
the Woulson Spice company, and the
leading stockholders In the American
Sugar Rellnlng company, for the ap
pointment of a receiver for the Wool
son company, the majority of whoso
stock has been bought by the Have
nieyers, of the Sugar trust.
The plaintiffs declared that the Su
gar trust purchased this stock to In
jure Arbuckle Brothers and to prevent
them from going into the sugar relln
lng business; that the business was
being run at a loss, and, therefore,
the protection of the Interests of the
minority stockholders required that
a perpetual Injunction be made against
the Woolsons selling coffee at a loss
and that a receiver be appointed to
conduct the: business.
Judge Morris' opinion Is very volu
minous, covering twenty-eight typo
written pages. He holds that the mat
ter of the price at which the company
may sell Its coffee strictly pertains to
the Internal lunnagement of the con
cern; and so long ns they act In good
fnlth the directors cannot be Inter
fered with by the court, which cannot
restrain a corporation from selling at
a low price, even though the minority
stockholders can show that sound busi
ness discretion would dictate a dif
The testimony, however, showed that
the Woolsons were selling nt a fair
margin of profit. The application for
a perpetual Injunction Is therefore de
nied. NOT AN UNLAWFUL CONSPIRACY.
With regard to the other point, the
court holds that the agreement of the
majority stockholders to sell the pro
duet for a time nt such a price ns will
drive a competitor out of business will
not make the corporation an unlawful
conspiracy against such competitor nor
liuble for his actual loss, nor entitle
him to relief In the courts. A competi
tor for public favor must boy to that
law of trade that allows every man to
dispose of his own property, In the
ordinary course of business, on such
terms as he sees lit. The motion for
