KEEP STEPPING “K«*e|» stepping, Joe.” was the telegram sent by Mrs. Cans to her *on. the colored pugilist. before his Now Year’s Hay battle. It's mighty good advice for all_ Keep stepping; It holds l„ hovel or in hall. On this old rushing, Terncled ball, 8a pay attention to this call_ Keep stepping >on’t dally on the primrose way — Ke H stepping. Count not a singlo wasted day; J st think what Mrs. (Jans would say, \nd let tills he your joyous lay— Keep stepping! If parson or if pugilist. Keep stepping; IT using brains or heels or fist Don’t let another get the grist. Or by the world you’ll ne’er be mis sed— Keap stepping! If fate on you the cards has stacked Keep stepping; There’s no use crying, that’s a fact; So, If both pedals you have lackel. Just do a logless wouder act— Keep stopping! Denver Republican. SUCCESS. . Sorely tired and sorely tempted, From no agonies exempted, I it *he penance of his trial, And the dinciplino of pain; Often by illusions cheated, Often bailed and defeated fn the task to be completed, Ho by toil and self denal, To the highest shall attain. — Longfellow. RAILROADS AS COAL MERCHANTS There is nothing new In the re port Of thct *In torsin:te- commerce commission condemning the owner ship of coal companies by railways, hut it is certainly to be hoped that If the recommendation shall be acted upon, tho proposed federal legislation will prove more effective than the measures to the same end which have boon tried by the state*. The commission has been Investi gating the situation in the eastern bituminous fields, but the abuse complained of Is well known to exist In the anthrnotlo fields ns well, and to be tho root of many of the evils there existing. It has Intrenched an already powerful monopoly by en it hi ini' the transportation compaulox. which are at the same time cun! merchants. to hamper serious!) atid often completely strangle the inde pendent operators who seek a ohare or the business, There can be no objection to allowing railway com panies to mine coal for tlulr own purpose, but to permit them also to traflic in it is a perversion of tho purposo for which tlv/.y wore chartered and an abuse of their cor-, porato privilege. Pennsylvania has tried in vain to coj>e with the evil The federal gcprc^Jitixeni’S arm should prove longer and its grip more tenacious. The practice complained of is very dose to the root of the railway evil, and ith abolishment would go far to ■solv^e tho railwa> pioblem. Mani festly this Is not to be solved un less the railroads shall become. voluntarily or otherwise, what they wore Intended to he. once were, and ever now are supposed to bo— neither more nor less than common carriers, serving: nil shippers alike. This son8uutnt.itIon Is not to he ex pected as long ns they are allowed to mine and soil coni. Their own interests nre certain to be given the preference.—IMatn Dealer. It Is not generally known that otto of the first corners formed in any market was a corner In harits.. There Is u story, told of one of the famous Uowellyna, who had taken up his residence In ICnglnnd. to the effect that during the groat famine id Ireland lie went through almost every section of the Kmernld tale exchanging much desired gold for limps belonging t fa m Ino-Ht rick - on peasants. Naturally the peas ant* wer* glad enough to soli their harps and anything olao they pow* aoaiiod for food, or money to buy food, and tho drat thing Irishmen knew thoy were practically harplcss. Scarcely a single Irish instrument could be scared up in any community and then they began to wonder whnt had become of their harps. Hy that time the dread and horror of j the famine had paaned and the ephp^neral n|drtts of tho sons of Krln were light and woubl make merry, but how could they slug and dance without their beloved harps? Then It w.i^ djbteovdrod one man owned practically all the Irish harps and when he did part with them It Is said that the price received was far in advance of that given sonic time before. History Inis recorded no scroll drorner In these celestial Instruments. I)o You Wish to Reach the Wealth-Laden Coal Region of the Flat-Top Section of W.Va.?
