The ltevolt Against the Trusts
The jieople have been stirred up as
never before on the subject of trusts.
ami especially of such trusts as de
rive their jower from tariff duties
that are prohibitive and produce no
revenue. They expect congress to
give them relief from such exactions
by the simple process of alxtlishing
such duties as are plainly used to
maintain oppressive mouoiMdies. And
if congress, which is controlled by
the republican party, should not only
disappoint them in this matter, but
should refuse to ilo justice to Cuba
and neglect to provide markets for
our products by allowing the recip
rocity treaties to fail, then tire peo
ple may be expected to revolt at the
next congressional election anil pre

The King's Coronation.
The King's coronation promises to

TAMING A SHREW
"I'm afraid." said my friend Peter
Bliss, "that the girl I'm going to marry
is a shrew."
"You are Pete, and she is Katherine.
Why not try Petrucio's plan?"
"Who was Petruclo?"
"A character in Shakespeare's play of
the 'Taming of the Shrew. lie pre
tended to be fiercer than his wife Kath
erine and in this way brought her un
"That's not a bad Idea."
The next time I saw Peter Bliss
was at the club. His wife was in the
country, nnd he was living a bachelor's
life. I wont up to him and offered my
hand, which he took very coolly.
"What's the matter, old man?"
"What did you put me on to that Pe
trucio business for?"
"Didn't it work?"
"Oh. yes, it worked, but in a different
way from the play."
I lighted a cigar and sat down by
"We had been married n week," 'he
saiC "and returned from our wedding
trip. 1 got down that play you told me
about and read it. The first thing that
Petrueio did to show his spunk was to
complain at dinner that the meat was
not properly cooked and send it away.
I suppose this was to starve his wife
into subjection. Well, I concluded to
try the same scheme. At our first meal
I nourished the carving knife and cried
out that the meat was burned to a crisp
and not fit to cat. Kate sat looking at
me in astonishment.
"'Bridget 1 yelled, 'take away this
meat, and fho next time you roust a
piece of beef in this house don't cook it
"With thin I got up from the table
and went out, slamming the door after
"I didn't go home till late, because
I wanted to give Kate time to think
over what a terrible fellow I was and
make up her mind to smooth mo down
gently. When I went up Mairs, 1
found that she had gone off into the
guestroom to sleep, leaving me our
Itedroom to rave in as much as I liked.
Although I was disappointed that she
had not received nio humbly after the
outbreak a:id endeavored to pacify me.
it was plain that she was afraid of me.
and this was so much to the good. I
didn't sleep very well and the licit
morning went down to breakfast feel
ing much in need of u good cup of cof
fee. Entering the dining room, I was
surprised to see no cloth on the table.
What I did see was a note from Kate
saying that as the servant had depart
ed bag and baggage the day before
there would be no meals served in the
house for the present. She (Kate) had
gone to her mother's for breakfast,
and I could get mine where I likcJ.
"The result of the first move was not
quite satisfactory. I didn't seem to
have terrified my wife, and I had been
the means of losing a very good serv
ant. The truth Is-that I didn't have
the heart to go any further. Neverthe
less, after 1 had got a miserable cup
of coffee at a restaurant (I didn't dare
to come here for fear of having to an
swer questions). I went back home
nnd. sitting at my wife's writing desk,
wrote her a note directing her to re
turn to the house, find a servant and
behave herself. I sent it by a messen
ger, directing that the answer be
brought to nie nt the office. I was
afraid I wouldn't get an answer, but
I did. My wife informed me that ns I
had been the cause of the servant
leaving she would expect me to secure
another, when she would go home at
"There was nothing to do but hunt
the intelligence offices, question girls
and engage one. I went through a lot
of them, selected the best of the lot and
hired her, but she never appeared.
Then I went through the terrible work
a second time, with the same result.
The third girl I engaged appeared, but
while waiting for me to get home the
servant next door told her what a
frightful temper I had. and she told
me when I came she had decided that
she did not want to stay.
"Meanwhile I had not sent a word to
my wife, hoping that my silence would
trouble her. I resolved now to write
her that she was leaving work to me
that really belonged to her and that it
was her duty to come home and attend
to the servant matter herself. I was
surprised to receive a very kind note in
reply, saying that I was quite right.
She was the proper person to engage a
girl and she would gladly do so pro
vided the girl was not to be treated as
the last one had been treated. The
note ended very sympathetically.
"What I had to do in order to return
to comfort was to make a simple prom
ise not to make an ass of myself again
and all would be well, but this was
surrender, and I assumed that it meant
living under subjection for the rest of
my life. Il.-wcver.. It was the only
thing to do. nnd when I did it 1 apolo
gized handsomely, adding that 1 bad
tried tbe experiment of living without
her, but bad found she was not only
necessary to run the house, but it was
desolate without her. ,
"I got no reply to the note, but when
I went borne at dinner time my wife
met me at the door, threw her arms
about me and made me happy as a
king. Tbe scrvaut I bad abused was
cooking a dinner, and the house was in
perfect order. Kate has since given
me my way all I have wanted.
"It's my opinion about women." add
ed Peter, "that to have your own way
with them rou've first cot to make a i
complete surrender. Then you can do
what you like. I don't believe that

SHIRT WAIST GIRL.
The shirt waist girl.
Who sets wwhirl
The hearts of all beholders,
Again is here
To charm and cheer.
And there's no room for scolders.
In raiment light.
And color bright.
She forms a picture pleasing;
She holds full sway
When either gay
Or serious or leasing.
" She's here and there.
In all directions going;
Amid the hues
Of blacks and blues
Her shirt waist bright is glowing.
When days are hot
They worry not
This girl attired so lightly.
For as a rule
She's trim and cool.
And always smiling brightly.
Long she will reign
Till summer's wane
E'er winning approbation.
And she'll be queen
On far-away vacation.
So careful be
Whene'er you see
The shirt waist girl so charming:
For hearts she breaks
And conquests makes
In manner that's alarming.
