Less than a hundred years ago there was no Standard Oil trust and people used tallow candles and pine knots. But little coal was mined, and there were no coal barons. The match trust was not in existence, neither were matches. Boston was about a week's journey from Phila delphia and the people did not kick about "railroad mergers." The Western Union Telegraph company did not con trol any telegraph lines then, nor yet did the Bell Telephone company have con trolling patents on talking to people at a distance. Those were the "good old times" when trusts were unkno\yn—and yet we are not (praying for "time to turp backward in its flight," for there are some things we could illy spare even if the evils of trusts and similiar combinations are seemingly necessary accompani ments. Seriously, a little reflection will show that the trust conditions are the result of progress in art and science, and we may say almost a necessary result. Trusts and combinations are not all evil, they are of legitimate and natural growth. The remedy for the evil is not necessarily capital punishment of the evil doer. We should regulate trust crimes as we do other crimes. First, clearly define what such crimes ire, and second, provide penalties. combination is not itself a crime, Hntrary it may be a benefit to fy foination may mean good—it in evil—or—it may have both jrjust the same as in individuals, jfdudt of the combination should /gulated by law—and it should be to regulate the conduct of a com on or corporation by law, than the uduct of a private individual, because ie corporation is the creation of the law, nd is born with Vio.

Home for CiilUtmas 1' See agent Great Railway about rates, ^tc., for During the last two weeks a congress of delegates has been in session at Wash ington, representing the labor unions of the United States. 1 heir platform is the union of labor interests, and"theyseek to enroll every mechanic and tradesman in their ranks. The general prindples of this great organization are right, but if the Steel Trust or the "Railroad Merger" people should say as do tljiese, that they desire "to strengthen their economic position until it will control the political field" we can imagine the howl that would go up from the country weeklies. Marconi thinks he has signaled across the Atlantic ocean with his wireless tele graphy. One of these days every fellow will be going round with a lightning rod sticking up from between his shoulders, with which he can signal and talk with anybody and anywhere on the earth. These rods have been used figuratively by political candidates for years, but just think of them as a reality in a political canvas, Admiring editorial friends have within the last month nominated Editor Hager of the Times as successor to Senator La Moure when the latter is promoted to congress, and also as successor to Mr. Ottem as county commissioner. As Brother Hager is not a resident of the district represented by Mr. LaMoure and as he declines thexommissioner nomina tion his friends will have to substitute something "equally as good."

A poor complexion is usually the re sult of a torpid liver or irregular action of the bowels. Unless nature's refuse is carried off it will surely cause impure blood. Pimples, boils ahd other erup tions follow. This is nature's method of throwing off the poisons which the bowels failed to remove. DeWitt's Little Early ftisers are world fatfious for remedying this condition.
