ILLINOIS END OF COAL
COMBINE MAY COLLAPSE
A dispatch from Carboudale, III-
savs that the great coal combine of
Illinois, an extension simply of the
Indiana corporation which has al
ready been effected ami which is be
ing manipulated by emissaries of .1.
1'ieriMint Morgan, has apparently
reached a most critical stage, if it is
not reallv on the verge of collapse.
I'he reason, as far as can be learned,
is in defective titles that would take
years to clear up. and a possible
counter-combination that demands
certain concessions which the giant
corporation has so far failed to grant.
The combine contemplated, and
which until December 2S was on a
fair road to success, is stupendous in
its ramifications. It means the pool-
ng of all the mines of the state that
are workable and shipping mines into
one great firm. The plans were dif
ferent than any trust heretofore at
tempted. A capital of $100,000,000
with $40,000,000 preferred and $1.0.000,-
OOO common stock was to be organ
ized under New Jersey laws. The
$40,000,000 represented the purchase
price of the shafts, while of the sixty
million, twenty was to be given the
coal-carrying railroads, making them
n part of the combine, and the re
maining forty millions given to the
holders of preferred stock. Appar
ently the gift to the railroads was for
the purpose of eliminating any possi
bility of competition of the mines,
which the corporation did not wish
to take it. Again the combine was
to pay cash for shafts and the own
ers to pass out of the coal business
entirely. The corporation has met
with bitter opposition, but the opx-
sition realized at the outset that it
was futile. Despite the information
secured as to a possible failure alert
coal men, and men fully conversant
with the status of the case and the
working of the combine, assert pos
itively that the corporation will suc

When the Japanese peasants get
themselves up for a pilgrimage to a
city for the purpose of laying In a stock
of finery, they present the quaintest ap
pearance Imaginable. The women gen
erally tuck up their petticoats well
nbove their knees, either leaving the
legs bare or else swathing them In
white bandages which form a kind of
leggings. Their hair is done In the usu
al elaborate Japanese style, and gener
ally an artiOcial flower Is stuck In at

wizened face of an old woman with a
large red nose hobnobbing over It. And
this floral decoration is not confined to
the women. When you meet a party of

police have insisted that every party of

dame rushing alnrnt wailing: "Where Is

Life's monotonies are a blessing, and
not In disguise, for they contribute di
rectly to longevity, health and happi
ness. The long lived man is not the
adventurer, the explorer, the plunger.
the man who has worries, but he who
takes the world as he finds it and slips
along through life with as little friction
as possible, forms easy going habits,
sticks to them and cares not one straw
for the opinions of men who say that
he Is In a rut. He Is healthy because
he has peace of mind and regularity of
life; he Is happy because he Is healthy
and In a good, smooth, comfortable rut,
which he prefers to the macadam on
the sides of the road. Goldsmith's pas
tor, who had spiritual charge of the de
serted village, who ne'er had changed
nor wished to change his place, is an
excellent example of the man who
