A SURE CURE FOR CROUP.
Uso Wlthouta Failure.
The first Indication of croup Is
hoarseness, and In a child subject to
that disease it may be taken as a suir
sign of the approach of an attack.
Following this hoarseness is a peculiar
rough cough. If Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, It will
prevent the attack. It Is used in
many thousands ot homes in this
broad land and never disappoints the
anxious mothers. We have yet to
lear ol a single instance In which It
has not proved effectual. No other
preparations can show such a record-twenty

The climate and crop division of the
Department of Agriculture furnishes
the following information regarding
winter wheat conditions:
"""The month ol November was excep

with precipitation decidedly below the
average over much the greater part.
The rainfall exceeded the average,
however, from Central and Northern
Texas, northward over Oklahoma and
Kansas, including portions of Nebraska
and Western Iowa and the
North Pacific coast, being unusually
heavy along thecoasts of Washington,

of Ohio and Michigan the crop
has suffered from lack of moisture.
Rank growth is quite generally reported,
and In Illinois, Kansas and
Oklahoma wheat is being pastured to
a, considerable extent. The reports
generally indicate increased acreage.
The following statements, relating
mainly to the winter wheat,have been

I lie Hniirrin Court,
A decision of far-reaching
its application to business
combinations was handed down by
theJOnlted States Supreme Court.
Singularly, the interpretation of the
constitution and of the law came at
the hour when a Congress In which
antl trust legislation promises to re
ceive much attention was organizing.
The decision was given in what is
called the Eddystone pipe case. In
brief it sustains the antUtru&tlaw in
a direction not hitherto tested. And
in so doing it points out the way
whereby Congress may, within constitutional
limits, legislate further to
control combinations and to eradicate
The conrt some time ago sustained
the law In its application to transpor
tation lines In the case brought
against the Wertern association of
railroads it was held that such organizations
were in restraint of commerce
between the states, and that therefore
the application of the antl trust law
to them was constitutional. This de
cislon resulted in the dissolution of
joint traffic associations and other
combinations ot railroad companies.
But it did not difine the bearing of the
law upon anything but transportation.
DECISION IS SWEEPINO
To day's decision is much more
sweeping. It upholds the right cf
Congress to legislate against combinations
of manufacturers which are in
restraint of commerce bttween the
states. The particular combination
upon which the court passed was that
of the manufacturers of iron pipe. The
case, was brought in the United States
District Court ot Tennessee. It alleged
that this combination of manus
facturers ol pipe was In violation oi
the act passed by Congress In 189,
and -known as the Sherman anti-trust
law. Senator Sherman was the auth
or of It. The trusts ignored the law.
When the railroad test case, starting
from the United States District Court
in Kansas, wps brought here, the most
eminent lawyers In the east appeand
and elaborate arguments were made
tbat the Sherman act was unconstitutional.
The conrt unstained the act
in its relation to common carriers, and
now applies it to manufacturers.
In this pipe case the District Court
of Tennessee decided in favor of the
manufacturers. 1 be Couit of Appeals
for the Sixth circuit reversed the decision
ol the District Court and sustained
the constitutionality of the law
and now the United States Supreme
Court upholds the decision ot the appellate
Some significance attaches to the
fact tbat Justice Peckbam, the New
York member of the court, announced
the decision. By reason of past associations
and environment, Mr. Justice
Peckham might be expected to con
cede all just rights to capital. He de
clared as the opinion of the court that
the constitutional clause providing lor
the regulation ot interstate commerce
does apply to individuals and corporations
generally as well as to trans
portatlnn companies. This Is the
sweeping feature of the decision and
opens a field to Congress to legislate
upon the sulject cf trusts.
WILL ENCOURAGE LEGISLATION.
The action of the couit has been the
sulject of much comment That it
will greatly encourage anti trust legislation
by this Congress is the common
In reviewing the case Justice Peck-ham
said that the case bad been
brought under the anti-trust act of
l8oo,and that an injunction was asked
to enjoin the six corporations engaged
in the manufacture of water and gas
pipe which composed the combination
from continuing to do business under
the agreement by which they bad divided
the territory oi the United States
among themselves and by which they
bad arranged to fix prices.
Under this agreement the members
ol the combination provided for auc
tioning ofl the right to make bids for
supplying with pipe cities not in allotted
territory, the successful bidder
to meet 110 opposition from ether
members of the trust, or if other bids
wefe made none of them should be
higher than that of the company to
which the award bad been made by
the combination. In cages In which
bids were asked In territory allotted
to memters of the combination the
agreement was that no bids should be
made except under the supervision of
the company in charge of that territory
under the agreement
01 ST OF TUB DECISION
The charge was that such a
nation was a violation of the clause of
the constitution regulating Interstate I
commerce. The District Court 'ft?)
which the case was first heard relused
to take this view of it, but it was reversed
by the Coutt of Appeals of the
Sixth circuit, which held the combination
to be antagonistic to the constitution,
ordering the issuance of the
Injunction prayed for.
This latter decision was affirmed by
the action of the Supreme Court with
a modification that the decision should

Gertrude, as she handed her friend a

The pale, weary looking girl, who
was slowly recovering from severe illness,
opened the bundle and held up
a large bottle oi clear, rich medicine.
"Hood's Sarsaparllla!" she exclaimed,
"I have been reading about
it today and wished I had a bottle."
On New Yeat's Day Jennie was able
to be out on the street, and to her
friends who remarked how well she
was looking she simply said, "Hood's
