But think you these violets are any less rich in their coloring or less delicate in their veining, any less graceful in their lines or less prompt in their waking in the spring because none of us ever goes there to see them? Don't you fool yourself. Whether or not you come and look is as immaterial to the violet as the phases of the moon's of Saturn, are to you. ' ' . What, then are violets made for, if not to be seen Or smelled or bought and sold or preached about? , y Not for anything that directly concerns us; you may be sure. To work out some secret destiny of their own perhaps, but certainly not merely toj)lease us, orto give us texts for serrnons, or to be worn over the hearts of our women.

The psychic influence then led Payne to inquire if Kelley knew the meaning of the Republican party, and a few other little things like that, which nobody on earth knows. At the end of this psychic questioning, the defenses used up one of its precious peremtory challenges on Kelley. You see, the psychic questioning had demonstrated that Kelley was a fairly well informed man. -When the door had closed behind Kelley, Payne began to labor with John D. Brown, a contractor living at 4414 West Van Bur en. After half an hour or so of psychic questioning, he uncovered the hair-raising fact .that Brown read French and German Tiewspapers. Whereupon, Payne held a' whispered conference with the other legal advisers of-the Beef Trust, and then used another not psychic but very peremptory, challenges.

' V NEWS ABOUT CHICAGO NEWSPAPERS When the Chicago .newspaper publishers organized their secret trust, the organization was very carefully thought out. Business, of course, was the main consideration. Sec. .1, of Article 6, read asLfollows : "A special committee, , known as the managers' committee, consisting of the business manager 'or other designated employe of each stockholder, shall hold monthly meetings, for the purpose of discussing matters of common interest and to take such action in specific matters as it shall, by UNANIMOUS VOTE, deem necessary. Sec. 3 provided for monthly meetings of this managers' committee, and Sec. 4 provided that the luncheons at the meetings of the managers' committee should be paid by the association. .There were two sections to Article 7, which read as follows : ' 1. In case of disaster 'by fire, water, wind, lightning or explosion by which one of the stockholders of the Association shall lie unable to issue his or its regular edition or editions,...

This was the beginning of the arrangement of the newspapers to gel absolute control of the news stands in Chicago, and to enable them to control competition", or prevent it. If a newsdealer or newsboy did1 anything the publishers djdn't like, they could put him out of business by UNANIMOUSLY refusing to Jet him handle their papers. Rule 15 read as follows : "Stockholders shall not individually contribute directly or indirectly, to any trade-union organization not employed in newspaper offices." There were other rules, all illustrating the" trust character of the organization, but these will answer for the present. They illustrate how the publishers' trus.t started oiit years ago to get a grip on the local situation. Much has "been done since then. After Hearst's papers and the Inter-Ocean got in, the situation was apparently cinched. Although the people probably imagined that they owned the streets and sidewalks of Chicago, the fac...

den jolt against the unexpected rainy day and they have to take a fresh start with their hardearned wisdom. An eastern girl who recently married a struggling young doctor, in a little western town received the condolences of a visiting friend with amusement. "I'm not really missing anything," she declared with honesty, "for we started at rock-bot- lom and weve been acquiring something every day. If I were back home I'd be miserable trying to keep as well-dressed as the other girls. I'd be sorry for myself every time I missed a ball or ope'ra. But out here we give our time to more important and immediate matters." If the girl "back home" had the courage, however, she could do exactly as well for herself and her husband. Even if she has social ambition, she could correlate it to her environment and financial circumstances. Entertainments that may not seem expensive in ' themselves bulk large upon a yearly account and associations that demand large expenditures are not always as profit...

Alice and Maribel were inseparable friends, 'and consequently Maribel was intensely interested in any love affair of her chum, and then well, Maribel had a tender spot in her heart for Harry herself. She decided to put the question point-blank to Harry. . He might answer it or not at any 'rate, he would become delightfully embarrassed, .and .Maribel took an unholy, joy in pestering him. Consequently, when Harry passe'd the .two girls loudly whistling, "Wont You Be Man Honey, Baby Mine?" she released her arm from Alice's engaging hand and advanced to Harry.
