The rrpftSHiT cf the- snthracite 'coal
trust methods through the investiga
tion by the interstate commerce eoui
mission shows exactly what is claimed
by the Democrats that there is a con
spiracy in constraint of trade between .
the railroads and the coal companies.
This investigation has not been car
ried on by the administration, but by a
suit at law commenced by a Democrat
of national reputation who when toe
coal trust refused to exhibit its books
carried the case to the supreme court
of the United States, which decided
against the trust.
This victory for the people shows
what IYesident Itoosevelt and Attor
ney General Knox might have done to
curb the trusts if " they had in gool
faith desired to do so. Instead of pros
ecuting the trusts under the criminal
section of the antitrust law a half
hearted equity proceeding for an in
junction against the beef trust is the
or.Iy legal stop that has been taken
against the industrial trusts to punish
or restrain them.
The beef trust barons hr.vf paid no
more attention to the in j miction than
if it had never been issued and still
control not only the principal cattle
markets, but dictate the price of meat.
The lower branch of congress under
the whip and spur of popular indigna
tion ordered the department of com
merce and labor to investigate the cat
tle and beef combines, but although
weeks have passed, and no doubt Sec
retary Corteryon is ardently pressing
the Investigation, it does not appear to
have had j.ny deterrent effect upon the
rapacity of the combine. It may be
that the arduous labors of Mr. Cortel
yon in siding President Itoosevelt to
arrange the details of the coming Ite
pnfallcan campaign have prevented ei
ther of them from paying much atten
tion to curbing a trust, which even the
administration admits is a bad one.
it has i"-n suggested that the rea
son President itoosevelt has selected
Seen 'i i try Cortefyon to manage bis
campaign was that the evidence he
has obtained against the trusts could
be used a club to make them 'come
down" to the great advantage of the
BepqbHesn campaign fund. That
would be no new plan, for it is charged
that t'ongressmun Bahcock threatened
the steel trust with antagonistic legis
lation unless that giant combine made
a donation to the campaign fund of
1902, when it was much needed.
If the eoai trust, the beef trust and
the other reputed bad trusts had been
persistently proceeded against by the
administration and results obtained
by forcing them to 6ell their products
at reasonable prices the suggestion of
their connecting with the campaign
fund in lieu of prosecution would have
no weight. But the fact that no trust
or combine has been exposed by the
administration and that a private citi
zen has had to bear all the expense of
forcing the evidence of the manipula
tions of the coal trust into public view
certainly allows a sinister construction
to be put upon the lack of energy in
proascuing the trusts by President
Booserelt and his department of justice.

the First Fatal Meeting; Wu I pun
Historic Boston Common.
The first fatal duel fought in what
Is now the United States was upon
Boston Common, between Benjamin
Woodbridge and Henry Thillips, on the
evening of July 3, 172S. These young
men had quarreled over cards at the
Royal Exchange tavern In King street,
now State street and under the influ
ence of drink had agreed to settle tht ir
differences with swords in the public
grounds above named. They met at a
little after 8 o'clock in the evening, and
Woodbridge was mortally wounded
and was found dead the following
Both were gentlemen of good social
position. Phillips was a brother of
Gillam Phillips, who married Marie, the
sister of Peter Faueuil. the builder of
Boston's famous hall. Woodbridge had
not completed his twentieth year. lie
was a young merchant who had re
cently been admitted to business as a
partner with Jonathan Sewall, one of
the most active merchants of the place.
Henry Phillips, a young graduate of
the college of Cambridge, was about
four years older than Woodbridge. hav
ing at the time of this melancholy af
fair completed his twenty-third year.
Woodbridge was the son of a gentle
man of some distinction in Barbados,
one of the magistrates there, who had
formerly been settled in the ministry
as pastor in Groton, Conn-
The place of meeting was on the ris
ing grounds of the Common, not far
from the great elm. near where in the
old'-n time a powder house stood.
Small swords were used. No one but
themselves participated. Woodbridge
fell mortally wounded and died on the
spot before the next morning. Phillips
was slightly wounded and at mid
night, by the aid of his brother Gillam
and Peter Faneuil, of famous memory,
made his escape to the Sheerness, a
British man-of-war then lying in the
harbor, and before the sun of the next
morning had fully discovered to inter
ested friends the miserable result of
the unfortunate meeting be was on
his way to France, where he died in
less than a year of grief and a broken
heart. United Service Review.
A SHORT ANSWER.
The Itepl-. Hint BtaaMurelc Made to
nn Admirable Speech.
I like to think of old Bismarck as he
sat by the window that opens on the
windy park of Priedrichsrub in an old
gray snooting jacket, a rug over his
knees, a pipe in his hand, simple as a
north German farmer, this man who
had almost held Europe in fee.
A little while before this February
day be had been deposed front power.
All the world knew that the old lion
w.-.s sulking in his den in no amiable
mood toward the young emperor who
had turned him out of doors. It was
known that his memoirs were written
ami that his correspondence was set in
order. A New York publisher thought
ho might secure the papers in which
Bh marck had told the real story of
the birth of the German empire that
strange story of craft and heroism, lit
tleness and grandeur. It was on this
iii! -.-ion that I sailed for Hamburg. I
had two letters for Bismarck. One
was from a negligible ambassador.
The other had been given me by a Ger
man statesman of some note with
whom in other days I had been a stu
dent in the University of Jena. My
friend had been si familiar of Bis
marck's household and bespoke me a
kindly bearing. I sent the letters on
from Hamburg and followed the next
On the table at his elbow as he sat by
the window 1 noticed my letters. The
valet who had placed a chair for me
took his stand by the door. I said
what I bad to say. it was (permit me
to affirm itl an admirable speech. For
ten days and nights I had rehearsed it
as 1 paced the deck of the stormy liner,
so in tolerable German I declaimed It.
It was dignified; it was diplomatic.
When I bad finished Bismarck tk
tin- pipe from his lips, said "Nein"
and put the pipe back again.
'Twus the shortest answer I ever ad
in my life. I waited for a momtfnt.
The old man t-moked and staredifcut
into the park. I got up and bowed. I
had rehearsed that bow and did not in
tend to waste it. I bowed fo his old
hairless head, the flabby yellow jowls
and big mustache, to the old gray
jacket and the pipe. It was like sa
laaming to a stone wall. Then the
valet led me out. In the park I re
gained my senses. Vance Thompson
VACATION TIME. Vacation time should bring
rest, recreation and comfort; and comfort of the
solid and pie ising variety means no high collar, no
stiff hat and no itching scalp. It for this WS1
discomfort thai Newbro's Herpicide becomes a
summer necessity, as it stops itching of the scalp
and prickly b:at almost Instantly. Take Herpicide
with you on your vacation.
SCALP WARNING. Itching of the scab) is ni
so much a pimishment for past neglect as ii is a
warning for the future. It shows, almos: conclu
sively, that the vine like, mlcrobic growth that
causes dandr itT. itching scalp and falling hair has
entered the B3baceOtt8 glands, and unless this
growth is stopped and kept out of the scalp, bald
ness will follow.
IT IS CONTAGIOUS. It was Prof. Unna (ask
.your doctor about him) who first pointed out thai
the true came of hair loss Is a germ or microbe
that lodges in the scalp, where it causes dandruff.
Being of mlcrobic origin the disease is necessarily
contagious, hut Dr. Sabouraud has recently called
attention to the highly contagions nature of dan
druff, ami the necessity of constant watchfulness
to avoid it.
UN STERILIZED PUBLIC HAIR BRUSHES, says
nr. Cartas, are to blame for most of the baldness
that is prevalent today. He further states that
baldness begins in the young." By
this he means thai the germ that
causes the disease is planted in the
scalps of voting men and thai some
times years elapse before the destruc
tion is complete.

MASSAGiNG THE SCALP.
It Is the Hont of All Syttema ot
StlniuIatliiK tile Stair' tironlb.
The massage of the scalp Is at the
root of ail treatment of the hair. Hy
stimulating the tiow of blood to the
scalp new vigor is given to the hair.
Without this massage hair restoratives
are of little avail.
Now this massage may be better done
by a masseur than by the man or
woman who is growing bald, but it is
possible for that individual to massage
his own scalp will enough to do the
hair a great deal of good.
The hands should bo half folded and
the ends of the lingers made to touch
the scalp lightly. Then rub them slow
ly over the scalp.
It is convenient to begin at the back
of the neck and rub the scalp slowly
up the center of the bend to the fore
head. Then the rubbing should be done
all over the head from one side of the
scalp to the other. It should be repeat
ed several times.

scalp has been stimulated. The tingers
