^‘Magazine Trust” Next
In tlie language of The New York
Press, Mr. J. P Morgan “has broken
the pt'iis muck-
akers'in the country.” This he did
. buying control of The American
Magazine through the Crowell Publish
Company. Such writers a» Ida
M Tarbeil, Ray Stannard Baker, Lin
coln Steffens, William Allen White
nd John S. Phillips were tied to the
American Magazine, and their con
tracts have been taken over by the
„ew purchaser. Outside the “muck-
r?iking” Mr. Morgan already con
trols the various Harpor publications
and is believed to have negotiations
afoot for the Munsev magazines also.
With the Crowell Pubhshing Company
he got The Woman’s Home Compan
ion and Farm and Fireside. The two
Curtis publications. The Saturday
Kvening Post and the Ladies’ Home
Journal, together with Colliers’Weekly
are determined to remain independent
and doubtless will. Wall Street men
supposed to be representing Mr. Mor
gan made an effort last week to cap
ture Success, one of the most radical
magazines, bat Gifford Pinenot and
Kudolph Spreckles. both wealthy men
in sympathy with its idlers, are under
stood to have saved the day.
In these activities we do not think
that Mr. Morgan displays his custo
mary sagacity. He may establish a
-magazine trust.” but it will be a
trust in popular phrase only and the
“independent” will thrive as they
never did before the day of trust and
independents began.—Va Pilot.

Where gleams the home-light, pilgrim,
And bide a wee.
When gale and blast and tempest blow.
And cold thy heart and icy grow,
Draw near the hearth, the homely glow.
And bide a wee.
When life’s sirocco breathes defeat,
And hope declines in desert heat.
Be my oasis thy retreat.
And bide a wee.
And have you heard the luring cry
That seemed a song and proved a sigh?
The hope of home is heaven-high.

Too Good To Be Probable
Thongh reliably reported and hav
ing behind it the names of reputable
physicians, the story from San Fran
cisco of remarkable and almost imme
diate cures of tuberculosis, pneumonia
and typhoid fever is quite incredible.
Working on a new principle discover
ed by Dr. Schafer of. Bakersfield the
medical staff of the Southern Pacific
hospital inoculated nine pneumonia
patients with liquid extract made from
products given off by the pneumococcus
or pneumonia germs in the process of
growth, every cBse of patient was
cured, several of the cures following
no more than 24 hours after the se-
cum’s injection A tuberculosis pat
ient was pronounced well within four
days after the Schafer lemedy—this
case a serum made from the merabolic
or growth pjoducts of the tuberculosis
germ-had been applied. In. a San
Francisco dispatch to The New York
Sun it is said that “conservatvie prac
titioners who have followed the ex-
periraents are astouned by the results
accomplished and declare that the
Schafer treatment will soon become
uniaversl in many diseases which have
resisted all methods of treatment.—

Of anecodotes and jokes concerning
it, which are always flippant or crouch
ed in a tone of distinct levity, there is
literally no end.

should find its place in literature mainly
in this wav, or else as an episode in
fiction? why does it not appear some
times as a subject for reasonable

Man’s exclusiveness in the matter of
marriage proposal dates from the ages
when woman was regarded as little
better than a slave, and man selected
a wife as he did a horse, and the one
had no more to say about it that the
It is argued that as man is the “head” I

etmologically means, and it devolves
upon him to support the family, it should
be his proper function to take the first
step toward forming one. But this
premise is not more than half the time
true; and if it were always true it
would not lead to that conclusion. Not
only is it often the case that the wife
does as much in supporting the family
by her mheritance or dower as the
husband does, but even when she has
none she does the same or more by
her household management and services.
Even if she did nothing, is she not a

Question of Distribution.
There are many knotty problems in
this world. It is related that one Ar
thur Brisbane recently told Champ
Clark at a dinner that “the greatest
problem before the world today is the
problem of distribution. There is plenty
of the material things of life for every
body. The real question is to distrib
ute them properly.” And Mr. Clark
agreed with him. So must all the rest
of us, for that matter.
Take the millionaires—Andrew Carne
gie and John D. Rockefeller can give
away a few million dollars each in lump
sums for an abstraction or for some
educational movement. At the same
time a poor woman and her children
take to a vacant vault in a cemetery,
or to some old dilapidated, unused hovel
for shelter from the cold storms of win
