As a rosult tho placo presents a very

A Splendid Concert.
JThp concert at the Kolth Friday
ovcnlng given undor tho auspices of
tho KnlghtB of Columbus, was largoly
attto'nded and tho program was ron
dored in a manner that brought forth
hearty applause. Those appearing in
tho numbers wore Miss Williams solo
ist and Miss Shnrpless reader, of tho
Catholic school at Hastings, Miss Rob
hausen pianist, of this city, who Is
both an Instructor and student at that
school, Miss Trovlllo, soloist, of this
cltyand Paul Harrington of Denver,
a former North, Platto boy.
Mips Rebhauson, by conscientious
work hns become a finished plafalst,
both In execution and oxprcsslon, and
naturally her friends take prldo In hor
progress. Miss Williams possesses a
woll cultivated voice, tuneful, hor high
notes aro easily reached, and hor ex
pression and enunciation aro splen
did. As a reader Miss Sharpless is
vory "good, her selections Friday ov
onlng covering a wldo range from tho
humoruos to tho dramatic. Tho two
numbors by Miss Trovlllo, with piano
and cello accompaniment by Miss
O'Haro and Richmond Blrgo wero ex
collcntly rendered, hor high notes be
ing of blrd-llko sweetness. Paul Har
rington is an artist, ills baritone

A Victory for Rig Business.
Tho decision of tho United States
district court, holding rliat the United
States Stool corporatlpn Is. not u. trust
In' restraint of trado within the moan
ing of tho Sherman law Is a victory
for big business. Tho court holds that
it is not tho sizo of tho concorn, but its
power for harmful monopoly, that
makes It amenablo to tho law. Horo
Is tho moat of tho whole matter, too
frequently entirely overlooked by tho
critics of "big business." Tho court
bays: "More bIzo or bigness of busi
ness Is not necessarily a monopoly of
business at tho oxponso or all others
engaged In It."
Tho demands of modorn lifo havo
been mot by a dovolopment of Indus
try along lines that havo boon revo
lutionary In their effects, and yet but
a natural rosult of evolutionary
growth. All tho groat enterprises of
tho ngo havo been built on a similar
prlnclplo, tho combination of units for
tho greator olllclency In production

processes, until remedied from within
or without. Courts havo Interfered,
and not nlways wlsoly, as, for oxam
plo, when tho Union Pacific was pre
vented from purchasing tho Central
Pacific. That tho Sherman law Is
lnoffoctual when It comes to tho actual
dissolution of hlg business combina
tions is shown by tho Standard Oil
and Tobacco caBes. Thoso "trusts
wore dissolved, yet out of that segrega
tion nroso a now arrangement of busl
noss juBt as strong as boforc. Al
though' nolthor of these combinations
has been nblo to get a monopolistic
control of Us Hue, neither has tho con

advantage from tho dissolution.
Tho principal effect of tho decision
in tho stool caso, though subject to

The results of oxporlmental steor
feeding carried on at tho Agricultural
Exporlment Station from 1912 to 1914
recently published showed again that
a ration of corn and alfalfa hay pro
duces the cheapest gains of any rntlon
used. Furthermore tho Btcors fed corn
and alfalfa hay made as rapid gains as
did tho stcorB on any othor ration
Cold pressed cotton seed enko did not
give as good results ns regards either
