The bounty of the federal Govern ment had le£t holes -in its land laws through which six logging teams could driven abreast, and a very dull spec ulator it would toe who would not have driven bis team in. Unscrupulous mea went beyond t&e law fey collecting and hiring men to use their individual homestead and other rights on rich timber already spied out. la earlier days loggers even went so far as to cut right and left in Government timber without permission. Doubtless big for tunes wera acquired by these unlawful means without any retribution. State lands in Wisconsin and Minnesota were shamelessly stolen by means of corrupt legislation. But such undue greed was not necessary to the easy getting of great timber fortunes. Men of mod erate means, keeping wholly within the law, disappeared into the woods, kept quiet as to their operations and came out millionaires. Twenty-five years ago it took no prophet, if he knew any| thing at all about timber, to tell that the purchase of good pine at going prices was a safe investment. A sup ply surely and rapidly diminishing and a population surely and rapidly increas ing gave security to the venture. It was really no venture at all. It was a certainty. Men who had bought North ern pip® the Lake States at a few cents per thousand and had sold or sawed their holdings till cents turned to dollars, went to the Gulf States or to the Pacific Coast and with the wisdom of lumber experience and the dollars of sugared-off deals, bought heavily into rich and ridiculously cheap timber. The sensational timber fortunes have been made within the past twenty-five years, and nearly all of these within the past ten years.—From "The Lum- Back Combs In plain and sets, gold tilled plain and Roman and green gold finish, HpI 00 to .... 7 :g0 $7.50 the celebrated Waterman's Ideal, for and gentlemen witl^and ^jq viewc for November. qq Festoon Necklaces The very latest conceptions 5k Necklaces.

I JJelson, in the American Review of Tariff aind Trusts. (Indianapolis News.) Not oiaiy are the trust question and the tariff question ©losely connected,, but it is Impossible to consider them apart. In one sense, indeed, they are the same question. For both the trust and the exorbitant tariff are designed to kill competition, and bath are more or less effective. In these days of world wide indue tries., euch as the Standard Oil company is, we must consider com petition as a world-wide force. If we are not yet prepared to invite it univer sally we should at least insist on it in the case of industries that freely meet competition abroad while demanding that they be protected against it home.
