Peruna , and I did.
"My health was very poor at the time
I began taking Peruna. My throat was
very sore and I had a bad cough.

chronic catarrh is gone and my
health is very much improved.

JEUckefeller Cheerfully Tells Ho\r
Competitors Were Driven Out.
John D. Rockefeller's o\vn story of
his fortunes and Hie history of the
birth of the jroit : .Standard Oil Com
pany , was listened
to with brea'thless
Interest by a large
crowd that jammed
the courtroom at
the hearing before
II ef e r ce Franklin
Ferris in New
York T h u r s d a y.
With seeming < -u\-
dor he told how
and why the combi
nation was created ,
and cheerfully ad
mitted that it se

the railroads which
enabled it to drive
competitors out of

matin for years , the revelations of Miss
Ida Tarbell , the fulminations of cam
paign orators , the charges in newspa
pers , and the remarkable letters of
John D. Archbold that injured Senator
Foraker and smirched half a dozeu
In answer to questions bj John G.
Mil burn , his counsel , Mr. Rockefeller
told how his combination reached out
Its tentacles for more end more re
fineries of rivals , and fattened on them
for ten ye rs or more , till it became
strong enough to change into what be
came the Standard Oil Company of
Ohio. Between 1ST2 and 1SS2 the
Rockefeller combine bought ntid
bought rivals. When it was strong
enough it organized them all into one
concern. The oil king said that the
company was constantly reaching out
for more refineries and more markets.
It bought refineries to get them out
of competition and to get their busi
ness. That is the way II. I-I. Rogers
ai.d John D. Archbold went into the
company. They were bought up. Roth
were strong , brilliant and bold. The
Rockefeller combine had to get thorn
out of the way ; it absorbed their rival
concerns and them at the same time.
Mr. Rockefeller snapped up the Ameri
can Lubricating Company , and once in
that field he looked around for more
lubricaliiig companies. Before his ri
vals appreciated what had been done ,
his combine controlled most of these
concerns that had done business be
tween 1S70 and 1SSO.
When the Pennsylvania railroad ,
through its Empire Pipe Line , began
gathering oil and shipping it to the
seaboard at reduced rates , the Stand
ard stepped in. A bitter war followed ,
the end of which came only when the
Empire concern was turned over to
Rockefeller and the dangerous compe
tition wiped out. The railroad for its
surrender was permitted to form a car
combination , the certificates of which
were bought by Rockefeller and his as
sociates. "Whatever they had we
took , " Mr. Rockefeller said , in ex-
rJ.aining the absorption of the Empire
The most conservative reports from
Great Britain tell of an unprecedented
condition of unemployment in that coun
try , a situation so desperate that the
government can no longer ignore it. Al
ready great numbers of the idle work
men have shown signs of extreme dis
content. Some groups were reported to
be on the march toward London and at
Glasgow bloodshed was prevented only
by the prompt action of the city authori
ties in appropriating $ oOO,000 for public
works , to give relief. Dublin also is
spending $ oO,000 for the relief of her
poor. Liverpool , Sheffield , Birmingham
and other industrial centers are likewise
confronted with an acute situation. In
the face of these facts Premier Asquith
has announced his intention of formulat
ing a general plan for giving relief.
The highest court of Australia has ren
dered a decision invalidating one of the
important laws passed in the interest of
organized labor , the party which holds the
balance of power in that country. The
unions had forced the passage of a law
imposing an internal tax upon the output
of the manufacturers of agricultural in
struments. This was designed to about
counterbalance the effect of the protec
tive tariff , but gave to all concerns which
paid the union scale of wages an entire
remission of the tax. As the labor un
ions controlled the Parliament , they could
remit or impose the tax upon whatever
business they saw fit , so that no business
which suits the unions could be put out
of the running. The court -decided , by
a vote of 3 to 2 , that the new law was
unconstitutional on the theory that the
purpose of the law is to regulate wages
instead of to levy a tax or to raise reve

When a manufacturing establish

The Mayer Boot & Shoe Company ,
Milwaukee , the largest shoe establish
ment in the northwest , has just closed
its iiscal year , and reports an increase
in sales over the corresponding pe
riod of last year. This exceptional
showing speaks volumes for the genu
ine merit of Mayer shoes , and is di
rectly attributed to their high stand
ard , and because of the fact that May
er shoes have become universally and
poularly known as "shoes of quality. "
Most of our readers , no doubt , have
become familiar with the shoe adver
tisements of this enterprising- firm ,
that have been appearing in the col
umns of this publication for a number
of years past. To those who have not
yet become familiar with the extraor
dinary wearing qualities of Mayer
shoes , we Avould recommend a closer
acquaintance by a purchase of a pair
at the first occasion.
The leading brands are "Honorbilt"
fine shoes for men. "Leading Lady"
tine shoes for women. "Yerma" Cush
ion shoes for both men and women
( these are exceptionally fine shoes for
people troubled with tender feet ) ; the
popular "Martha Washington" Com
fort shoes , which have the largest sale
of any shoes of their kind in the
world , and the "Special Merit" School
shoes ( a strong and sturdy line of
seamless school shoes that wear like
iron ) . Tn addition to these brands , the
Mayer Hoot & Shoe Company make a
complete line of every-day and Sunday
shoes for all purposes. In fact , there
is a Mayer shoe for every purpose and
for every member of the family.

The increased use of whiskey for
rheumatism is causing considerable dis
cussion among the medical fraternity.
It is an almost infallible cure when
mixed with certain other ingredients
and taken properly. The following
formula is effective : "To one half pint
of good whiskey add one ounce of Toris
Compound and one ounce of Syrup Sarsaparilla -
