Two ways lie open before you, one leading to an ever lower and lower plain, where are heard the cries of despair, and the curses of poor, where manhood shrivels and possession rots down ihe possessor; the other leading off to tke highlands of the morning, where are heard the giad shouts of humanity' and where honest effort is rewarded with immortality.

Deir ing that year twenty-six trusts were organized it' that State, with a total capital of $665,600,000, the largest being the famous Federal Steel, cap italized at $200,000,000. The trust boom reached its height in 1899, when everything that could be syndicated or controlled by trusts sought the protection of New Jersey's laws. The total number of trusts ran no to 116, with a capitalization of $2,446,500, 000, nIne-tenths of which was water. The articles brought within the in fluence and control of the trusts were iron, steel, wire brick, ice, school fur. niture, shipbuilding, smelting, steel hoops, pltambing supplies, copper, hides and leather, biycles. asphalt, writing paper, condensed milk, cement, refrigerators, compressed air, automo. biles, ink, axles, graphophopne, fire engines, rubber, trucks, tin plate, salt, shoe machinery, iron pipes, zinc, lead, glucose and other minor items. It was the top wave of the trusts. There has been a sudden check in their organization since then, and the first few months of 1900 saw only seven new ones iocorporated in New Jersey, with the absurdly small cap ital of $79,000 000. This brings the total for two years and a balf to the magnificent figure of 149 trqsts, cap italized at $3,131,100,000, more than ton times the assessment of LouIsiasn, and nearly equal to the total assesed wealth of the Southern States, the product of the labootof fifteen million people for two centurtea.-Times De. mocrat.
