COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country of local in- I terest solicited , I Trust Methods. A New York dispatch of the Ist inst., explains the manner in which the trusts recoup them- I selves for their losses occasion- j ed by strikes. It is estimated that the coal operators lost; about $15,000,000 by the recent strike in Pennsylvania, which | consumers will have to payback! with something over 300 per cent, interest. The dispatch is as I follows: Local dealers were tlirowm in to a state of consternation to- ! day by an announcement that the price of anthracite coal had ! been advanced 50 cents a ton. This increase is general and applied to the annual production of anthracite coal —50,000,000 tons —it means an additional profit to the Coal Trust of $25,- 000,000. A dealer, who has analyzed the conditions of mining in the anthracite region, writes to the Evening Post to day that, in granting an increase ot 10 per cent in w r ages to the miners the cost of production will be in creased 8i cents per ton. As the price ot coal to the consumer bad already been increased 50 cents a ton, the new advance j gives the operators an addition- j al profit of one dollar on the ton, i or $50,000,000 a year. Deducting from this sum the \ increased cost of production on the basis of 8£ cents a ton, it will be seen that, as a result of the strike in the anthracite re gion. the operators will enjoy a net increase of $45,775,000 in in come. I am strongly in favor of the election of United States sena tors by the people; in other w’ords bringing them nearer to the people, in direct touch with them, for w r e are well aware that there are many men in the sen ate now r , that would not be there if they were subject to election by the people. Millionaires are in the senate, corporations, com binations. monopolies, aggrega tions of capital, and trusts, each have their representatives in the senate, and while this is the case there w 7 ill be no opportunity for poor men who have brains, in tellectuality, honor and integ rity only before the masses of the people. Our doctrine is that the place should be open to all, rich and poor alike, without the ; corrupting influence of mone} 7 . I—James S. Robinson. Many a man’s good name isn’t good enough for a pound of su] gar at the corner grocery. A famous surgeon of France has come to the conclusion that the greatest pain a man is ever called upon to endure is to hav« a tooth drawn and that all storiee of the horrible pain suffered b\ the wounded upon the batth field or those operated upon at the hospitals are figments of tht imagination. The nerves will only transmit pain up to a cer tain point of intensity such as the pain of a toothache but any pain exceeding that in intensity is not transmitted and has mere ly a stupefying effect. It ought to be a satisfaction to one with a toothache to know that he is enduring the greatest pain tha is possible tor a human being ti to bear. Under a recent ruling by th United States land office, in a., sections for unsurveyed lands under the act of June 4, 1897, j notice of the selection must be ! given for a period of thirty days by posting upon the land and in j the local land office and by pub lication at the cost of the appli cant in a new r spapsr designated by the register as of general circulation in the vicinity of the land and published nearest there to. It is not fully realized by the general public and mine invest ing capitalists, says the Western Mining World, that the greater portion of the annual output of gold is derived from low 7 -grade gold ores, nor is tne fact suffi ciently recognizee that the changed conditions, improve ments in methods of extraction and reduction of milling low grade ores, has so lessened the cost of operations that many properties that could not be profitably operated a few 7 years ago can now be worked with great profit and that large de posits of this class of ore exist, which furnish a means of invest ment where the profits can be accurately estimated for a term of years, which fact does not apply to small veins of high grade ore. An Arizona jury decided that a man can draw 7 out of a poker game when he is a winner. At Octave, Yavapai county, last w r eek Charley Thompson object ; ed to John Lee cashing in when SSO ahead of the game. At the coroner’s inquest on the body of ! Thompson the jury brought in a verdict of justifiable homicide. The decision was so manifestly fair that the case will probably not be carried up. This ought to settle a much disputed ques tion.

V John Allen, whose career in I congress has made the little I town of Tupelo famous, knows more good stories than any other member of the house. One i of the best in his repertory is j the tale of the darky and the 'possum, which was told in the senate cloak-room theotherday apropos of the patronage Sena tor Depew is supposed to enjoy, but which is quietly absorbed by his senior colleague. epicure caught a fine, large ’pos-1 sum, skinned, dressed and hungj it before a blazing fire under a! spreading tree, and while it was j baking to a delectable brown, j lay down on the ground and; went to sleep beside it. About; the time the ’possum was done' a slick little darky happening that way stole the ’possum and ate it all up. Then he took the bones and laid them down in front of his sleeping brother, greased his lips with ’possum grease and smeared ’possum grease over his fingers. When the owner of the ’possum awoke he looked about him, dazed and surprised to find his piece de resistance gone, but the bones lay in front of him, he saw' the grease upon his fingers, and tasted it upon his lips. “Is it pos’ble, ” he said “I dun eat dat ’possum when j was ’sleep? I smell ’possum, I tas’ ’possum, an’ dar is de bones. It sartinly do iook lik’ I mus’ hab eat him, but ’fo’ God dat dar ’possum dun hab less ’feet on my cons’tu tion dan enny ole ’possum lever did eat befo’. ” “That is the w T ith Depew, ” said the man who repeated this story. “He should have patronage, it looks as if he did have patronage, but ’fo’ God dat dar patronage has less ’feet on his con’stution dan enny ole patronage he ever did have befo’.’’—Leslie's Weekly. The Bureau of Animal Indus try has taked action that wnll result in permitting live stock to be imported directly from England instead of through Canada.

The celebrated “big cow 7 ” has i started out to see the world. | After posing before the people | of Denver and doing all the good ! possible in a charitable way, it has been sold to the Internation al Food company and w’as ship ped Saturday night to Minne, apolis and from there will be sent around the country as an advertisement of what this par ticular brand of stock food can do in making cow.

Village Blacksmith Saved His Lit tle Son’s Lite. Mr. H. H. Black, the well j known village blacksmith at 1 Grahamsville, Sullivan Co., N. Y., says: “Our little son, five ! years old, has always been sub ! ject to croup, and so bad have the attacks been that we have feared many times that he would die. We have had the doctor and used many medicines, but Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is now our sole reliance. It seems to disolve the tough mucus and b} T giving frequent doses when i the croupy svmtoms appear we have found that the dreaded | croup is cured before it gets set tled. ’’ There is no danger in | giving this remedy for it con tains no opium or other injurious 1 drug and may be given as con ; fidently to a babe as to an adult.

Norris of New York city. “The native Mexican sell cakes, candies and . i groceries; the Spaniards are en gaged in the hardware and liquor i i business; the Frenchmen own all i the dry goods houses; the Ger ; mans handle machinery; and the I Americans own the railroads and the mines. There few exceptions of course but this is the rule. I have spent the ma jor portion of my time in Mexi co for ten years and find that the line of business are national i lines. Mexico is improving won derfully though,'’ he continued • “and there is a great desire to catch on to American methods i of doing business. There is prob ably a greater improvement in • the methods of mining and han dling ore than anything else. Mining and railroading are the two great lines of business and are the most profitable lines. ” Mexican Herald. “I have used Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and find it to be a great medicine.” says Mr. E. S. Phipps, of Poteau, Ark. “It cured me of blood flux, I cannot speak too highly of it.” This remedy always wins the good opinion, if not praise, of those who use it. The quick cures which it effects eveu in the most severe cases make it a favorite everywhere. For sale by W. R.

The people are alive to the necessity of irrigation on a large scale, however, and there is every indication that the young, active territory will go on growing in wealth and population until it can no longer be kept out of the sisterhood of states. —Denver Republican.
