Hearts w* Are due to indigestion. Ninety-nine of every *ne hundred people who have heart trouble can remember when it was simple indiges tion. It is a scientific fact that all cases of «eart disease, not organic, are not only traceable to, but are the direct result of indi gestion. All food taken into the stomach which fails of perfect digestion ferments and swells the stomach, puffing it up against the fceart. This interferes with the action of fce heart, and in the course of time that delicate but vital organ becomes diseased. Mr. D. Kaublo. of Nevada. O.. says: I had stomach fcoubte and was In a bad state as I had heart trouble with it. I took Kodol Dyspepsia Cure for about four norths and it cured me Kodol Digests Wh»t Yon Eat and relieves the stomach of all nervous strain and the heart of all pressure. -.

HOLDS IT VIOLATION OF ANTI-TRUST LAW Opinion Is Bead by Justice Harlan Declares Principal Object of Corporation I to Prevent Competi tion—A Noted Case. Washington, March 15.—The opinion, of the supreme court of the United. States in the case of the Northern Se curities company vs. the United States, involving the merger of the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern Rail road companies, was handed down Monday and was in favor of the gov ernment. The opinion was read by Justice Harlan. The opinion of the United States circuit court for the dis trict of Minnesota was affirmed. The effect is to sustain the conten tion that the Sherman anti-trust law applies to railroad combinations of the character in question. Justice Harlan said that in the merger of the two! roads the stockholders disappeared and reappeared in the securities company, the two thus becoming practically con solidated in a holding company, the principal object being to prevent com petition. "No scheme or device could certainly more effectively come within the prohibition of the anti-trust law, and it is within the meaning of the act a trust" A Noted Case. The case has attracted more atten tion than any other suit before the court since the first insular cases were decided, and has been regarded by bench and bar as equal in impor tance with those cases and with the income tax case. It was argued in December last for two days, and at tracted general attention at that time, as it did previously when the decision was rendered by the circuit court for the district of Minnesota. The action was Drought in the cir cuit court under the law of February 11, 1903, which was for the purpose of expediting the case, and was heard by the four circuit court judges of the circuit. They united in a decision fa vorable to the United States and op posed to the contentions of the rail road companies. The suit was instituted by the Unit ed States against the Northern Se cunties company and the two railroad companies, the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern, and their leading stockholders for the purpose of dissolv ing the merger of the two roads which the United States declared had been created by the creation of a holding company, the securities company This consolidation was claimed to b€ in violation of the Sherman anti-trusl law It was claimed on behall of the government that this con solidation was in effect a pool created to promote the interests, not of one system at the expense of the other but of both at the expense of the pub lic. The railroads claimed that the transfer of the stock of the two com panies to the securities company was in the nature of a sale and perfectly legitimate The contentions of the securities company were reviewed, and Justice Harlan said they had received full attention He quoted the various opinions involving the trust question saying that from them it is to be gath ered that all contracts in restraint ol trade, reasonable or unreasonable, are prohibited by the Sherman law, and that congress has the power to estab lish such regulations as are laid down in that law. He then continued to re ply in detail to the points made for the securities company. In conclusion he announced the con firmation of the decision of that court saying: "The judgment of this court is that the decree below of the circuit court be and hereby is affirmed, with liberty to the circuit court to proceed in the execution of the decree as the circum stances may require The decision was concurred in by Justices Brown, Brewer, McKenna and Day, while the chief justice and Jus tices White, Peckham and Holmes dis sented. Justice Harlan concluded at 1:18. He was followed by Justice Brewer who, while concurring in the judg ment, did not accept all of the lan guage of the opinion. Justice Holmes then read the dis senting opinion. Gov. Van Sant Highly Elated. St. Paul, Minn., March 15.—Gov. Van Sant, when told of the decision in the merger case, was highly elated. He said: "I am very much gratified with the result of the decision of the su preme court in the merger suit, for in my opinion the decision means more to the people ofjrar country than any __,. T. .,„l event since the great civi,l war. I wil for all time prevent the formation of illegal trusts and unlawful combina tions." Commend Proclamation. St. Petersburg, March 15.—President Roosevelt's recent proclamation re garding the ob^rvance of neutrality by all officials and the abstention from either action or speech which might cause irritation to either Japan or Rus sia has produced a great impression here. The newspapers Monday morn ing print prominently articles com mending the substance anjl spirit of the proclamation in the higjiest terms. ^^^m^^^^m^^mmM THE CASE OF REED SMOOT. Inquiry Before the Senate Investiga tion Committee Brings Out Facts Concerning ICorxnonism. Washington, March 1L—The Reed Smoot hearing yesterday brought out the fact that the Mormon church insists on controlling the votes of its members. Andrew Jensen, assistant historian of the Mormon church, testified that he had never known of a prosecution of apolyg amist who continued to cohabit with plural wives he had married prior to the manifesto of 1890. Washington, March 12.—The only witness on the stand yesterday in the investigation of the Smoot case before the senate committee on privileges and elections, was B. B. Critchlow, former assistant United States attorney for Utah. He continued his history of the Mormon church. Washington, March 14.—That Reed Smoot could not have been elected to the United States senate without having first been chosen as an apostle of the Mormon church and that after he was so chosen he could not have been defeated, was as serted by Judge Ogden Hiles, assistant United States attorney from 1886 to 1890 and later a judge of the district court of Utah, who was a witness Saturday in the Smoot case before the senate committee on privileges and elections. The com mittee adjourned subject to the call of the chairman. RIVERS OVER THEIR BANKS. Destroy Immense Amount of Property and Make Many Persons Home less in Pennsylvania. Wilkesbarre, Pa., March 11.—The city of Wilkesbarre and the Wyoming valley have suffered immense loss by floods At Plymouth the entire busi ness section of the town was under wa ter. Only a few business houses es caped the flood and as a result the merchants have lost thousands of dol lars' worth of goods. At Middletown between 700 and 800 houses were surrounded and could only be reached by entering the second-story windows, and many houses were en tirely ruined. Summing up the situation in brief, over $1,000,000 worth of property has been destroyed in the Wyoming valley and over 2,000 families rendered home less. Though the river was falling at Wilkesbarre towns in the vicinity of Bloomsburg were experiencing the worst flood in their history. Five spans of the great steel bridge erected by the state at Catawissa were swept from their piers and carried 400 yards by the ice. There was almost a complete suspension of mining throughout the valley, the water flowing into the col lieries faster than it could be pumped out. UNDER MILITARY CONTROL. Normal Conditions Have Been Re stored at Springfield, O., After Three Days' Rioting. Springfield, O., March 11.—The race disturbances which have terrorized the town for the last three days as the re sult of the murder of Patrolman Collis and the subsequent lynching of the ne gro Dixon, who shot Collis, are held well in check by the 13 companies of state militia, and the authorities are of the opinion that no more troops will be needed to control the situation. Both Chief of Police O'Brien and Sheriff Routzahn believe, however, that it would be a mistake tp materially de crease the number of troops now on hand. Springfield, O March 12.—After an other quiet night and every indication of order yesterday, the withdrawal of part of the troops has begun. The troops will return to- their homes gradually. WEATHER HELPS TRADE. Conditions in the Business World Indicate Considerable Im provement. New York, March 12.—R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: "More seasonable weather has brought increased activity in business, normal conditions existing for the first time this year at many points, and there is evidence of an effort to recover lost ground and prepare for a large spring trade. Collections are also improving and structural operations revive with the higher temperature, stimulating the markets for building materials and increasing real estate transfers. There has been great damage from floods, al though the severe winter had caused un usual preparation for troubles of this na ture. Manufacturing returns are favor able. Young Woman Killed. Milwaukee, Wis., JJarch 11.—A Jour nal special from Oconomowoc, Wis., says: While returning with a group of young people from a wedding Wednesday night, Miss Ida Knopp, aged 20, was struck and killed by a Milwau kee train, and her sister Annie and Her man Raasch were seriously injured.

Elaborate preparations are being made by Coss & Co., of Eveleth, for a moose, caribou, elk and deer display at the world's fair at St. Louis. J. C. Congdon, a representative of the firm, is in St. Louis, securing a site for a building and to let the contract for its erection. William Coss, the senior member of the firm, owns or controls between 150 and 175 mounted moose, deer, caribou and elk heads, and these, in addition to many mounted ducks, geese, prairie chickens and birds of the Minnesota forests and lakes, will go to make up a scientific display. Two live moose, a stuffed bear and other wild animals are also included in the list for the exhibit. Another feature will be four buck Indians and two squaws, to be taken from the Sucker Point reservation. The bucks will demonstrate how birch bark ca noes are made and the squaws will be engaged in bead work and making moccasins. A Blow at Grafters. If present plans carry, the grafters of Minnesota will have a hard time during the approaching campaign to mulct the many candidates out of the price of a drink of beer or whisky, or a keg of beer or ale as the case may be. It will also be tough sledding for the gentlemen who are always just a little short on ready cash just about the time the candidate puts in his appear ance and wants to negotiate a loan of five or ten for a few days, and then for gets to pay it back. When the members of the Minnesota delegation in congress return home af ter the adjournment they will hold meetings in their respective districts which will be attended by all the can didates for nomination on the Republi can ticket. They will devise means whereby they will be protected from the "grafters" who are always about during a campaign. It is stated that the Democrats in Minnesota intend to adopt a similar plan. A Queer Accident. An accident occured to a logging train near Burwell that has proved more serious than the first report sug gested. One of the cars broke in two and the front part derailed, the engine dragging it for a distance of between five and six miles. One of the wheels on the front truck was broken off, and the engine dragging it over the ties, caused it to act as a huge saw or knife, cutting off the ends of the ties in pieces about a foot long and hurling them upon the track in front of the car. This went on for the entire dis tance between Burwell and the North ern Pacific junction before the engineer noticed it, cutting off the ends of over 10,000 ties. The story seemed almost incredible, but is nevertheless a fact. All travel over that piece is necessarily slow, while all freight traffic is suspended. It will take several days to repair the damage. Horticultural Society. The Red River Valley Horticultural society met at Crookston for its first annual gathering and permanent or ganization. The association was start ed at a farmers' institute held at Crookston last year, but officers were hot selected.

Bagen of Hendrum vice-president, T. A. Hoverstad of Crookston secretary and A. E. Cannon of Detroit, treasurer. Wyman Elliott, president, and A. W. Latham, secretary of the state associa tion, delivered addresses Frank T. Haselstine, the pioneer nurseryman of the valley, O. A. Solem of Norman sounty, who has been successful in growing apples, and Mr. Cannon of Detroit read papers, and all reported success in some of the lines followed. Badly Burned. Mrs. Snyder, wife of Prof. Harry Snyder, professor of chemistry at the school of agriculture, was horribly burned at her home, 2990 Common wealth avenue, St. Paul, and is said to be in a critical condition. Miss Hansen, a servent, who went to Mrs. Snyder, was also badly burned about the arms and face. The house tvas set on fire, and the rear portion of It burned away, causing a loss of 8500. The accident had been caused by a skirt that had been cleaned by gaso line catching fire Altho Mrs. Snyder's condition is serious it fs thought she will recover. Lumbering. Seventy squatters from the Twin Cities and other towns in Minnesota who have taken up the greater portion of an unsurveyed township in Itasca county, have formed the Nortnern Minnesota Log and Timber company, for the purpose of marketing their pine direct, without having to contribute to the middleman's profit. They will put in a sawmill, cut off the timber and dispose of it to the open market. News Motes. A new driving club will be organized in St. Paul.

Officers and committe chairman AN AFRICAN ADVENTURE. a Chaillu' E W it Gorilla In his "Explorations and Adventures In Equatorial Africa" Paul du Chailln tells of his first encounter with a go rilla. "We saw an immense one coming straight toward us out of the woods," he wrote. "As he came he gave vent to terrible howls of rage, as much as to say, 'I am tired of being pursued and will face you.' "It was a lone male, the kind which Is always the most ferocious. This fel low made the woods resound with hia roar, which is an awful sound, resem bling the muttering of distant thunder. He was about twenty yards off when we first saw him. I was about to take aim and bring him down where he stood when my most trusted man, Ma laonen, stopped me, saying in a whis per, 'Not time yet.' "We stood in silence, gun in hand. The gorilla looked at us for a minute or so, then beat his breast with his gigantic arms—and what arms he had!— then gave another howl of defiance and advanced upon us. How horrible he looked! 'Not yet,' whispered Malaonen. "Again the gorilla made an advance upon us. Now he was not twelve yards off. His face was distorted with rage. His huge teeth were ground against each other so that we could hear the sound. The skin of the forearm was drawn forward and backward rapidly, making his hair move up and down and giving a fiendish expression to his hideous face. Again he roared, a sound which shook the woods like thunder. It seemed as if I could feel the earth trembling under my feet The beast, looking us in the eye and beating his breast, advanced again. 'Don't fire too soon,' said Malaonen. *If you don't kill him he will kill you.' "This time he came within eight yards of us before he stopped. I was breathing fast with excitement as I watched the huge creature. Malaonen only said, 'Steady!' as the gorilla came up. When he stopped Malaonen said: 'Now!' "And before the beast could utter the roar for which he was opening his mouth three musket balls were in his body. He fell dead almost without a struggle." PITH AND POINT.

When the Halhday twins were ba bies their mother always referred to them collectively. This was natural enough, for they shared everything, from their baby carnage to chicken pox. As they grew a little older, however, there were slight differences between Elnora and Eudora, but Mrs. Halliday took no account of them. When they had reached the age of seven, she still referred to them in a way which struck casual listeners as amusing. "Where are Elnora and Eudora?" asked a cousin, who had come to spend the afternoon. "The twins have gone with their fa ther to have one of their teeth out," said Mrs. Halliday calmly.
