A bill in equity to ditsolve the American Sugar Refining company, known as the "sugar trust," because it is a monopoly conducted in restraint ot trade, was filled today in the United States circuit court for the South eridistri'ct of New York by United "f States District Attorney Wise. A perpetual injuction is asked re straining the company paying, divi dends and the stockholders from ex ercising any privileges as stockhold ers. The petition describes the man ner in which the trust acquired smaller concerns and how, by sell ing sugar for less than cost, the company was able to force factories to close down, driving competitors into selling their interests to the trust. Among the defendants named in the proceedings are: The Franklin Sugar Refining com pany, Spreckles Sugar Refining com pany, Western Sugar Refining com pany, California Sugar Refining com pany, George H. Frazier, Horace Havemeyer. H. E. Niese. Henry C. Mott, Adolph B. and J. D. Spreckles. F. D. Mollenhauser and Robert B. Hawley. Democrats to Contest. The Democratic State Committee last night adopted resolutions at a meeting at the Southern Hotel recommending that contests be in stituted by the Democratic' nomi nees for the four State offices voted on at the recent electicn, including Supreme j udgeships. The committee also urged that contest proceedings be brought be fore the next Congress by the Dem ocratic nominees in the three con gressional districts of St. Louis, in cluding the Tenth District, repre sented by Doctor Richard Bartholdt and which he carried at the last election by more than 25,000. The Democratic nominees for State Senate in the St. Louis dis tricts and for the lower branch of the Legislature in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County also are are importuned by the committee to contest the seats of their Repub lican opponents in the next General Assembly. ' The resolutions were approved after the committe had considered every phase of the charge that the Republicans carried St. Louis on November 8 by fraudulent tactics. The party leaders acted with de liberation, and did not decide to act until convinced that there was a tangible basis for every contest suggested. The resolutions contain a proviso that sufficient funds be pledged to defray the probable cost of the con tests. The Republic. w Tl . xio. vu nUMwa returned to her home In Louisiana.

A novelty in London is the "Lub bock formicarium," a portable ants' nest filled with the living insects. The nest Js inclosed in a frame ten inches square, .shaped like a picture frame. When it is desired to ob serve the ants engaged in their oc cupations the opaque cover of the frame is removed and a glass one is substituted. Besides nnta other small insects naturally associated with them are inclosed in the nest. Each nest is supplied with a queen ant, or without, as may be desired, and com plete directions are given for man aging the nest, which, it, is ajiid, may he kept in good condition for several years. These formicariums not only afford pleasure to children, but offer opportunities for scientific study. FRENCH PENSION LAW. The French bill for pensions hav ing passed, after four years of leg islative struggle, wage earning wom en as well as men will profit by it. Women are required to give six francs a year, $1.20, toward the. pen sion fund, men contributing nins francs and minors 4 francs. The pension begins at G5 or after 30 years of service. The employers must contribute the same amount as the workmen to the fund and the state must also contribute. All state employes are retired on a pen sion after a certain number of years. SWEEPING SCHOOL FLOORS. In Chicago they only wash the schoolhouse floors three times a year. In Boston they do not wash them at all, as they found out some time ago that in the process of scrubbing cracks were opened that became filled with dirt, making good receptacles for germs. They sweep the floors with sawdust, which is dampened with formaldehyde, both time and money being saved by the operation. WOMAN DEAN NOT POPULAR. The woman dean is not alwava popular, it stems, even in girls' col leges. At any rate Barnard cirla have a song wit'i a chorus : "Don't get a lady dean for us," which, no doubt, expresses the sentiment of the students.. AN OLD CRO88PATCH.

Foreign bodies in the eyes. .These usually consist of cinders, sand, dust, small insects, and sometimes small particles of steel or emery. First Aid treatment -never rub the eye. If this is done the delicate membrane of the eye may be scratched and severe inflammation .result. Allow the tears to accumu late in the eyes. This frequently washes out the foreign body. Some times blowing the nose will be suf ficient to start the particle loose. If the foreign body is on the lower lid, pull lid down and . have the patient roll the eye up. In this way the foreign hody can be easily seen and readily removed by the corner of a handkerchief, camel's hair brush or a amall spud made by wrapping a small piece of absorb ent cotton around the end of a match or toothpick (see illustration 10). If the foreign body is under the upper eyelid, grasp the lid be tween the thumb and index finger of the left hand, place a match, tooth-pick or lead pencil over the middle of the upper eyelid and turn the eyelid over. This exposes the inside of the upper lid and the foreign body can be easily brushed off. When pieces of steel or emery ! become embedded in the eye-ball, never attempt to remove them by a needle or knife, as is sometimes done by unskilled people. Such a procedure might injure . the eye badly, so that the sight be lost. Such cases should always bo at tended to by a skillful eye-specialist. - H. H. Hartung, M.

There is considerable to be" ex tracted from the poultry culture be-.-iues dollars and cents by the keen-r-yed observer, says a writer in T'rest and Stream. T-uo, the or dinary hen isn't so very interesting but d':l you ever stop to study why Rny hen, when a bunch of tender green stuff is given her, proceeds to act like a simpleton in her endeavor to oat it? Instead of placing one foot on the green stuff to hold it fist while she pecks leisurely at the remainder, she will toss it wild ly back and forth with beak as if she only possessed that one weapon of attack. Yet she will scratch like a fiend in the mellow garden soil. All instinct, nothing more or less. The original hen acted in this way and so the hen of today does the same, just as the dog turns round before lying down because the wild dog ages gone had to make this movement in order to form a bed of brakes or rushes for itself. Ex. Dr. Thomas Proctor who was here yesterday from Hannibal says that Hannibal will soon be in the 50,000 class. For sometime Han nibal has been going forward by leaps and bounds and the reason is that Hannibal Club 'is a live body of boosters. To them is due the credit Dr. Thomas Proctor of Hannibal was here Tuesday on business.
