THE STEEL BIBBED COMBINE.
The deal that is said to be under
way to unite all the big steel com
panies in the United States is the
most formidable industrial com
bination ever known. The Philadel
phia Press says of it: "The resulting
offensive and defensive alliance will
be the most stupendous the world
has ever seen." A New Yorker
largely interested in directing the
affairs of two steel' companies is
quoted as saying: "If the Standard

object of this "alliance" or combinaJ

course this gigantic trust is to be
purely philanthropic. No effort will
be made to raise prices or to do any

no! The "alliance" will never "-use
its gigantic power as a giant, but will
work for the good of mankind. Every

ITBEBC LOVE ML ST REI&JN SUPREME
Minnesota law makers are now
searching for fame. It is proposed to
regulate marriage, to prevent matri
monial alliances between . the sick, or
between the sick and the well. In
fact, it is planned to legislate for pos
terity and to cut a path for a race of
physical and mental giants.
We have in mind a! picture of
strcng man, full of vitality, who was
attracted to a bit or a "woman, frail
not handsome in face or figure, but
blessed with great eyes that showed
soul too big for a half nourished body
that was sick and n ever could get
well. And the man Tioved. the little
woman. From her he gained ambi
tion, coarae, -sympathy, trust
Through her he was more quick to
detect sorrow and assuage suffering,
and his whole world centered a Bout
her. When the time came that he
could make her his wife there was no
thought in his mind except that she
was the most beauyiul , woman ? on
earth, who had glorified his life by
snaring nis nome.
That is not a romance. It is a true
story of two hearts. It is repeated
every hour. It is what makes nomes
happy, and the legislature that at
tempts to regulate love will have to
settle with the people.
Throw all the safeguards possible
about marriage. Make it impossible
for children to wed, but never enact a
law that will make marriage less an
affair of the heart that it is today.
Once upon a time .r ranee took
hand in matters that are' purely re
lated to home and marriage, and the
result is a warning to the world.

Iloir to Carry a Gns, :
There are only two directions la
which the muzzle of a gun can safely be
pointed; these are up or down. A shot
fired in air. can scarcely injure any
one or anytnlnjj and one discharg
ed into the ground is equally harm
less. Therefore, in nil the different
positions which the gun assumes, see
that it is pointed either up or down.
Sometimes a man will be seen who
carries his gun reversed, holding it by
the muzzle while the fore end rests
on the shoulder and the stock projects
behind. Happily, this practice is not
common, for it is extremely dangerous,
and many men have been killed by
carrying their guns in this wayi If a
man stumbles or steps in a Jiole or
catches his foot on a root and falls, his
gun will very likely be thrown for
ward with the muzzle "directly toward
liis body and may easily enough be dis
Sometimes one may see a boy or
even a man who will carry the gun
across the back of the ueck,.with one
arm over the stock and the other over
the barrels, sometimes with' the hand
resting on the muzzle. This is certain
to give a very uncomfortable feeling
to any one who happens to be walking
by the side of the person carrying his
gun in this fashion and opposite the
muzzle end. While the danger-of a
discharge is perhaps not great, it is un
pleasant to be walking along with a
gun pointed at your neck or head.
