One of tin- 'xtremest of novelties to be on exhibition at the St. houis fair is brought to light by an order to an employment bureau to place 25 young ladies with auburn hair with a well km .w ii cafe in St. Louis, where the general color scheme to be employed is red. or rather the color nearest that. Tlie idea to be followed is some thing after the or !er of the one at 1 lie White Horse inn at Chicago during the world's, fair, where the entire fixtures adhered strict 1 to the color of white. In the case of the St. Louis fair, bow ever, there will be nothing but red of the most lurid kind. All of the young ladies to be en gaged by the management of the cafe must report at the place of business the 15th of April and don their ac coutrements, which will be made by mo.iisles to fit an I agree with the col or of the hair ami complexion of Ihe applicants. It will be necessary, ac cording to the wishes of the manage ment, that the young ladies presenting? themselves for positions have disposi tion of blondes, although their hair must lie of the deepest auburn.

Wade, of Iowa, has at tracted much attention by his speech in congress in wnicn ne avers mat tne meat trus. is a tangible fact and can be reache:! through the court. When Attorney (ieneral Knox in 191)2 -oceeded against the packers com bination and had it enjoined from violating the anti-trust law and sub sequently had this injunction mace permanent, it was believed in official circles the monopoly which had been conancterl in meat and food in the Cn-ted States was destroyed. Ilepre.-cntative Wade "Fays, how ever, the combination of slaughter ers and packers still is in existancc. is engaged in regulating by agreement and iinily the price at which cattle, hogs, and sheep are purchased from the farmers and stock raisers for killing; that it is slill violating the interstate commerce law in conjunc tion with the railroads of the coun try, but by a new device, and that it if still employing the old weapons which is so sueessf nlly used for oriving out of business butchers and retail deal ers who do not sell meats and provis ions to conform to list prices. Says He Ua Proof. This is a sensational statement, but Mr. Wade says he can prove every al legation. If he can prove this it wTIl become the dutv of Attorney Cenera! Knox to call the attention of Judge (Irosscup of the circuit court in Chi cago, to the fact that Nelson Morris & Co.. Swift and Co.. the J. II. Ham mond company, the Cudahy Packing company. Armour v I c. anil rretivvnrz sehilds it Sulzberger are guilty of con tempt of court. If pre -f can be brought before the ittorney general, or if the evidence can lie. obtained, no iiiuiut steps win he taken to bring these defendants in to court under an application for a rule to show why they should not be punishe:l for c ntempt of the injunc tion against them still iu force. This injunction, whose terms, ac cording to Mr. va:te. are being vio lated, was directed s. gainst all the ix firms mentioned. 'I hev were found guilty after an extended hearing of a conspiracy to refrain from competi five bidding and unlawfully and arbi- trarialv raising nriees. keeping "black lists" f retail dealers, conspiring with the railroads to obtain advantages by secret rebates, by artificial means re straining commerce, and putting in force abnormal and arbitrary regula turns affecting the meat business from the shipment of live stock on the plains to the final distribution to the consumer to the injury of the people of the I'nitel Slates. itt Their Rebates. sman Wade's allegations now re being railroads is Congre: garding indirect rebate: given tin- packers by the impoitant. lie says it is accomplish ed through combination houses which own refrigerator cars by renting the cars to- railroads, and under this cover the rebate from the railroads to tht packers is concealed. Mr. Wade has introduced in tin hou.-e of representatives a bill which is expected to reach this question should it be impossible to obtain sucii evidence to adjudge the packers guilty of contempt. Splinters of Sport. St. Louis. Feb. 2. After having had the better of four rounds of fighting Harry Forbes, of Chicago, was knock ed out in the earlv part of the fifth by Abe Attel, of San Francisco, in their battle for the featherweight championship of the world at 122 pounds 1 efore the We.-t Krd club here last night. In the four preceding rounds. Forbes surprised the specta tors by his speed and clever work. He not only utjabbed Attel. but had him on the defensive the greater part of the time. Attel tried to mix with Forbes in the second, but was beaten oft and compelled to cover up to pro tect himself. In the third round Forbes jumped in aggressively and put two hard jabs to the face. In the fourth Forbes again ru-hed Attel. and they mixed it up quite lively for a time. Forbes easily had the better of the session. At the opening of the fifth Forbes rushed at Attel viciously. Abe sidestepping, ami Harry fell against Ihe ropes. Attel started a wild right hand swing that landed on Kuri l's' ear. and the Chicagoan rolled to the floor and was counted out.
