How to Fight One Trust.
The dispatches bring the informa
tion that the retail butchers of New
York City have begun active prepara.
tions for fighting the beef combine.
The board of directors of the New
York Butchers' Dress Beef company
has decided to begin work at once on
a new abattoir. The new company
expects to be ready for its customers
in the spring of 1903. It will engage
in business on lines identical with
those of the large western packing
concerns and will deal in all products
in which they deal. It "will 'be con
ducted largely on the cooperative
principle, and closely allied with it
will be a retail butchers exchange,
the members of which can send their
surplus stocks of meat and have them
sold or exchanged at their full value.
.This may bring some Telief locally,
says' the Indianapolis Sentinel, but
a far more effective plan is that adop
ted by the retail butchers convention
at Washington. It passed a resolu
tion binding every butcher belonging
to the association to interrogate the
candidate for congress this fall in his
district and to vote and work against
all who wilt not pledge themselves to
vote to wipe out the tariffs on meats
and live stock. That means business
If the butchers carry out their in
structions they can knock the meat
tariff sky high and with it the mono
poly of the trust. The ' butchers'
customers are very ' sore over the
long-sustained rices for meats and ;
persuasive butcher ought to be able
to make half of the people who com
plain to him see that the way to stop
the thing is to cut down the tariff
and let in Canadian and South Ameri
can meats. In one quarter of the
consumers should take that attitude
not only the leef trust but the re
publican majority of the next house
will be in danger. It is hopeless to ex
ect any reduction of a republican
And it may be added that the senti
ment in favor of this line of action is
not confined to the butchers, or to
Seaker Henderson's republican con
stituents. Public Sentiment in favor
of that simple and effectual form of
anti-trust legislation which will re
move the duties on all articles con
trolled by the nire evil trusts gains
strength and volume day by day,
There is a feeling that this is the only
practical way in which the trusts can
be successfully fought. The truth is
known that the monopoly trusts cul
not exist but for the high protective
tariff which creates their monopolies
I he further truth is known that the
American people pay the gigantic-
tax imposed by reason of the hiffh
tariff, which . thus fosters and en
riches the trusts. This makes plain
the manner in which the trusts are
to be overcome. The tariff duties on
all articles controlled by the monopo
listic corporations must be removed

inflamed condition of the mucous lin

this tube gets inflamed you have a

and when it is entirely closed, deaf

DAILY SHORT STORY
A Doctor's Story.
On my list of trained nursea was
Mercedes Marcel, a youug woman of
the Spanish type. Miss Marcel had
ravishing black eyes, a wealth of hair
of the same hue and u supple llgure.
She had great influence over the pa
tients she nursed, often lifting them
over their low points solely by her
magnetic Influence. For this reason
I recommended her whenever she was
I sent for her to attend a Mrs. Brler
ly. and as usual she gave great satis
faction. The patient, however, did not
seem to gain after having reached a
certain point. Indeed she seemed to
retrograde. Several times it occurred
to me to ask, as Is my custom with my
patients, how she liked her nurse, but
as Miss Marcel was always in the
room with her when I called and as
I had heard the nurse's praises so of
ten sounded by others It did not occur
to me to send her out In order to make
One day while visiting Mrs. Brierly
I noticed that she was following the
nurse about the room with her eyes,
and when Miss Marcel's back was
turned she quickly drew me down and
with her lips close to my ear whis
pered: "If you don't take that woman
away, I shall die."
"Miss Marcel," I said, "go and get
me some hot water."
The nurse stepped to the electric but
ton and was about to push it when I
said, "Go yourself."
"I have signals for some -of the or
dinary wants of a sickroom," she
said. "I press the button twice, and I
get hot water quicker than I can go
"Very nice. You needn't press the
button. I wish to be left alone with
my patleut. Go out and don't return
until I call for you."
She obeyed me. I turned my back to
her as she went out and saw her face
In a mirror. She gave the sick woman
one of the most peculiar glances I ever
saw, such a glauce as a hypnotist
would give one he was endeavoring to
"Now," I said to my patient when
the door was closed, "why did you not
tell me this before T
"Because she always remained in the
room when you were here, and I have
no charge to make against her."
"What, then, is the trouble''"
"There is something lu her that is
wearing the life out of me. Don't ask
me what It is. for I dou't understand it
"Never mind. Don't talk about it.
She shall not enter your room agalu."
"She will ruin me."
"Ruin you? How? You are nothing
to her. and I will see that she doesn't
get at you."
I did what I could to make. the. poor
woman feel easy and left her. Iler
husband was coming in as I was going
out. I told him that I was about to
change his wife's nurse.
"You surprise me. I have never met
a more agreeable woman." he said.
"You mean seductive?" a faint suspi
cion coming over me at his warmth.
He turned i ale.
"Brierly," I said, "I shall at once
commence inquiries as to Miss Mar
cel's antecedents. If you are especially
predisposed toward her, suspend judg
ment till I make my report."
Within an hour I had hired a detec
tive to learn all that he could about
Miss Marcel. It was six weeks lefore
he made his report. When I received

clerk, "Is out of the city."

but. seeing that I was not to le trifled
with, told me that I could find Brier
ly at a certain hotel. I went there
and sent up my card. Brierly came
down with a scared look on his face.
Without commenting on how or where
I had found him I drew the detective's
report on Miss Marcel.

I watched Brierly closely as he read
the report and saw him shudder. Then
all his reserve broke away, and he
gave me his confidence.
"Doctor," he said, "how can I ever
