had a dispatch from Washington giv
irrr the result of an investigation

cerning the spread of trusts in Eu

that "everywhere in Europe.uotably
in Germany and Austria, there is a
strong tendency toward - the forma,

many and Austria their extent and
power probably are as great as in the
United States, but the plan of or

England within the last three years
an active movement has set in to
ward the concentration of industry
into large single corporations in form
similar to those in the United States.
The movement iu France is very
evident, though the managers of the
combinations are not inclined, in
view of the severe provisions of the
French code, to let their movements
aiH'ar in public." Why does the

Of the hundreds of thousands of per

dred thousand jtersous knows how the
peculiar crouching or "kangaroo" start
of the sprinters originated.
Eleven years ago every sprinter stood
tip to the mark with one arm exteuded
At the crack of tlie pistol he brought
his arm down hard and leaped for
ward. This start was considered the
proer tiling.- Now not one sprinter In
a score uses this method. Instead they
crouch with hands as well as feet uion
the ground. This start was discovered
by accident in May. 1SJO. by Tommy
Lee. at that time one of the crack
fpriuters of the New York Athletic
club. Boon afterward he became the
champion of the world, and several of
