' Editor Ciiikp: Whoever "S. H. II."
is, he has hit the catalogue business
just about right. I am fcrninst the
large cities controlling everything. I
believe we ought to do a little of this
controlling ourselves. The harvester
trust went m work to drive the smal
ler fellows out of the business, and
succeeded so well that they have real
ly cornered the entire harvester trade.
Then we have the nail trust, tho hard
ware trust, and trusts of all kinds. I
am not exactly satisfied with this idea
of shipping our cream to the largo
central creameries, which looks to mu
like an effort to drive our home cream
eries out of business and then they
will pay us whatever they please for
our cream and will control the price
of butter as well as cream.
There is danger in such things, and
for one 1 do not propose to harbor tho
mail order and catalogue house trusts.
It seems to me our home merchants
occupy tho same relation to us as the
small manufacturer does to tho differ
ent trusts. If tho big fellows once
get hold of us wo are their meat.
This nonsense about our home mer
chants malting too big a profit is all
wrong. It seems to mo any man cap
able of reading and of comprehending
tho way business is done nowadays,
knows that competition in all lines is
so strong that it is pretty nearly im
possible for a man to charge more
than he ought to for any length of
time. Suppose any home merchant
should ask mo or anyone else a dollar
profit on an article he ought to sell
for 25 cents profit, how long would it
be before tho other follow selling the

a big waste to throw those damaged
pieces away, and I asked him what
they did with them. He said thoyhad
a contract with a largo catalogue

had and showed me how they wrap

The Utilization of Leisure.
Sir Oliver Lodge says: "The Idea
of social institutes for recreation and
utilization of leisure ranks among tho
most hopeful methods of attacking the
forlorn gambling and excessive drink
ing habits of this country. It is an
ndirect method of attack, and there
"ore, wise. Compulsory closing of
' loors is no remedy, so long as an
pcn longing to enter them remains,
't is tho will and the habits that must
ic amonded; it is the leisure hours
that must lie otherwise provided for.
Tho way to expel a bad spirit perma
nently is to occupy his place worthi
ly; and until homes are moro home
Iko and rational family life more pos
ihle, social institutes and clubs, not
foo narrowly or ovar-governed, must
supply tho deficiency."

English Tax on Newspapers.
On Juno 15, 'JS55, England's news
paper stamp duty was abolished and
tho reign of tho cheap dally began.
This "tax on Knowledge" was first im
posed In 1712 and was made moat so
vero by tho act of 1S20, which fixed it
at 4 pence (8 cents) n sheet, with 3
shillings C pence (87 cents) duty on
each advertisement. Tho whlgs re
duced tho duty to a penny In 183G, but
when tlio Crimean war- broke out and
evoryono wanted tho nows even a
penny duty was found to lie intoler
able. Its repeal is called tho Magna
Charta of tho British press.
