For years the price of cattle to the pro
ducers had been going down. They
had gone down, per cent. In the
same time tha prices of meat to the
consumers had gone up on and every
single dollar of the diilerence had gone j
into the pockets of that combination.
So perfect was their control that they

cattle were to arrive each day in Chi
cago but over what railroad lines they:
were to come, whera they had been

One of these bo v s reported lesson
and the comment verbatim tn his in
dignant mother, who at once went
witli the story to the chairman of the
committee of the school. He did not
shine In the indignation ipiito the
contrary. The story pleased him high
ly, and he advUd her "not make
mountains out of molehills; it was too
silly a thing to make such a vry about
and she couldn't t expect, anyhow,
could she, to run the school her own
way?" No, unhappily she could not
expect that, therefore she availed ber
elf of the only liberty left her -she
withdrew her son from tho teacher's
pernicious influence. There was no
other school to which he could bo sent
so hi' was put to work in a wholesale
grocery store at three dollars a week.
Of course it puts an end to his educa
tion, she said sorrowfully, "but I
would rather he would know nothing
I would rather see him dead than
inder the tuition of such a man ns
that." More than one mother a good
tny fathers would feel the same
ly. Are they to make no protest, lo
bo debarred from any expression on
such vital matters? It is interesting
t speculate on the probable result It
di mother, not alone this poor widow
hud withdrawn her sou from Ihe cla--s

The Prleil and Ihe Lawyers.
The boys up on the Northwestern
Railroad were Idling lis about nn old
Catholic priest who lived until quite
recently out at Boone, and was, in hi
way. decidedly and rhnracterlstii all)
original. It eems that on a certain
orcasioii, some or many years ngo, we
don't remember which he been me a
party or a witne-e, hi some lawsuits,
and, as is the legal custom, was sound
ly U-rited and abused by the learned
counsel on the other side, for having
the temerity tohave anything whatever
to do with a case nt law, of any kind
Ihe result was that a very hitler feel
ing trrew up between the old prelate
and the two young lawyers, and time
did not appear to soften this feeling al
all. But oneday the old man fell very
ill. He was very old, and his sickness
sat so heavily upon him, that he feared
he would neverarisp from the bed upon
hich he had lain down. So when he
thought his las', horn was approaching
sent for these two lawyers, and they
bcyed the summons and came into his
presence. V 1th great uimcuiiy tie ae-
nsled them and begged them to stand
ona on each side of his bed, and remain
there until ho passed away. Deeply
a fleeted, the two lawyers did as he de
sired, and when they were standing on
each side of him, with solemn face,
ono of them, in low, earnest tones, told
the old man how glad they were that
his dying hour he should forgive
them for any innocent or excessive dis
play of professional zeal.
The old priest opened his eyes, "It
not that," ho said, and thotwoyoung
l bent forward eagerly lo listen.
It lnt that," gasped tho old priest.
It isn't that. But I feel that I am a
lying man. And I want to die like my
Tho words came very slowly and very
painfully, and the young banisters
held their breath while they leaned for
ward to catch the next sentence. The
old man turned his eves upon them;
Between two thieves."
Two crestfallen young men tiptoed
silently towards the door. Two blank
looking faces stared at each other out
the sidewalk, and two rising young
barristers didn't know whether to laugh
got angry. But tho old priest didn't
There was enough good humor in
his old heart to couquer a dozen diseas-
and send even death away smiling,
