If you ancl I
Could keep our lives as pure and sweet and clean
As drifted I
. snow or lilies’ blooms between
Tlie changing seasons: might the years slip by,
And leave behind
No bitter brooding and no vain regret.
God give us strength! that our lives may he set
As good example unto all mankind,
That when at last
Th’ allotted time on earth is over, we
Mav launch our craft upon the unknown sea,
Fearless, and unregrettul of the Past.

The Lucky Newcomer;
New York Avorld.
In the agitated discussion of
the “interesting event” in one of
the very rich familos of New York
all the emphasis is being put up
on the miraculous good luck of
the young adventurer. But even
neglecting the predominant fact
that wealth cannot shelter any
human being from the grave haz
ards of *fate, isn’t there another
side to the picture?
Is he not apparently foredooim
ed to a life of obscurity in the deep
shadow of the fame of the mil
lions to which he is heir? May
not these millions tyrannically
rule him all the days of the years
of his life, forbidding his mind
to expand to any of the higher
endeavors of humanity, constrain
ing it to the sordid cares of “in
vestments?” Is it riot very prob
able that his only distractions
Avill be that dreary round of phy
sical amusements which custom
has cut out for the rich,and which
swiftly produce 'yawning satiety
even in the dull? And will he ever
feel the greatest of all satisfac
tions—the consciousness that
one’s own personal merit has
won him the triumphs of life, its
distinctions, its friendships, its
loves? Then think of the temp
tations to the destruction of
health and character and reputa
tion which his wealth will not
merely offer him, but press upon
The newcomer’s outlook would
indeed be rosy all around if to be
well housed and well fed and well
clad were all of living. But is it?
“Some time ago my daughter
caught a severe cold. She complain
ed of pains in her chest and had a
bad cough. I gave her Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy according to
directions and in two days she was
well and able to go to school. I have
used this remedy in. my family for
the past seven years and have never
known it to fail,” says James Pren-
dergast, merchant, Annato Bay, Ja
maica, West India Islands. The
pains in the chest indicated an ap
proaching attack of pneumonia,
which in this instance was undoubt
edly warded off by Chamberlain s
Cough Remedy. It counteracts any
tendency of a cold toward pneumo

Senator Hanna is getting credit
for having prevented a revolt of
Rebublican senators against the
St. Louis Republic.
President Roosevelt’s message,
following the significant caucus
developments attendant upon the
assembling of a Congress in which
the Republican party ha9 a large
majority, further confirms the be
lief that no genuinely remedial
action toward the regulating of
the trusts and the revision of the
tariff may be expected in the near
The soundest American senti
ment is at the present time
strongly in favor of trust regula
tion and tariff revision. There is
uo desire to inflct injustice on
any business interest in restrict
ing the trust evil, but there is a
firm conviction that the monopo
ly feature incidental to the trust
system should be eliminated.
There is no desire to impose
hardship upon any American “in
fant industry” in revising the
present high tariff, but there is an
equally firm conviction that pro
tection which subjects American
consumers to monopoly prices for
American-made goods that are
sold cheaper in foreign markets is
the wrong sorb of protection. The
gigantic trusts now insisting upon
the maintenance of the high tariff
are anything but “infant indus
tries.” They are the masters of
the world’s trade, and the time
when they needed protection from
foreign competition has long
since gone by.
Nevertheless, the Republican
party is more solicitous for the
continued enrichment of these
monopoly corporations than for
the just protection of the Ameri
can people from the costly effects
of monopoly. The truth is now
made plain that the Fifty-seventh
Congress will take no action con
trary to the will of the all-power
ful and domineering trusts. The
movement looking toward the en
forced publicity of trust affairs
will go no further than is agreea
ble to the trusts themselves. The
proposed policy of reciprocity
will not be allowed to bring about
a reduction of the tariff calculated
to destroy the monopoly enjoyed
by any of the great trust organ!
zations. Whoever looks for gen
uine service to the American peo
pie from the present Congress in
matters affecting the tariff or the
trust has neglected to follow to a
logical conclusion the Washing
ton happenings of the past few
The situation must of necessity
remain unchanged until the Amer
ican people have an opportunity
at the polls to themselves insure
the necessary change. The party
of the trusts and of the monopoly
breeding tariff must be removed
from power if the people are to
be relieved of the trust and tariff
burden. The Congressional elec
tions of 1902 should prove that
the people are waking to a real!
zation of this truth. The Presi
dential elections of 1904 should
complete the remedial work
