Trusts lit Former Days.
The cornering of foodstuffs by moil'
nrchs mid their ngenta la said to havo
been tho easiest form of trust that
ever existed and as they had tho pow
er to prevent any bear movement In
opposition their deals could not help
being succcstiful ones. Accounts ot
such tnuwactloiis are to be found In
Assyrian records dating back 7,000 or
8,000 years, and the Illhlo describes a
very largo operation of this kind car
ried out by Joseph, when, out of the
wealth of tho seven fat years, ho pro
vided for tho poverty of the seven
lean ones. The Ilouinns did the same
thing through Uielr tax fanners, who
laid embargoes on tho food supplies
of tho provinces ngatust arrears of tax
cs, and tho probability Is that similar
operations were also conducted with
rognrd to manufacturers.
Another form ot monopolies, known
as trndo guilds, has existed from very
oarly times, nnd tticso, tn tho middle
ages, amounted practically to the cor
nering of certain arts and Industries
as well as menus ot distribution. The
greatest of them was tho famous
leaguo of tho Uanse towns. So closo
a "comblno" was this that It possessed
Its own fleets of armed merchantmen
and oven nnnlos of morceuarlcu In or
der to guard Its monopoly.

LONE TIIIDC Of ESKIMOS
1 There lias been discovered upon ono
of thu Islands of tho Hudson liny, tho
remnant of n lost tribe of Ksklmos, a
community which fins been for centu
ries without lutercotirsu with nny oth

'Itilto recently, hnd an opportunity of
seeing a whlto man. Tho facts of tho
discovery nro well established, having
been reported to tho Federal authorities
nt Otlnwn hy the ltov, A. W. llueklnnd.
Mr. llueklnnd anya thnt theso strange
people will virtually live In the atone
I age, knowing no nietnls. Their habi
tations nre built entirely of the skulls
Tho home of the tribe Is upon South
nmpton Islnnd, a piece of water-girt
land nearly ns large na tho Ktnto of
.Maine, lying nt the extreme north end
of Hudson liny. These people or their
ancestors have undoubtedly Inhabited
thu Island ever since pre-Columbian
days, nnd nt the present time they ex
1st exactly ns they must have douo
then. Having been Isolnted for so long
n period It la natural thnt they should
possess mnny peculiarities. A very ro
uinrknblo collection of their utensils,
weapons of (ho chase, and other ob
jects, wns secured by Mr. llueklnnd,
hut, to the grout regret of the Canadian
authorities. It wns allowed by lilm to
pass Into the hands of private persons.
Tho huts on thu Island arc built by
putting togother the great Jawa of
whales and then covering them with
skins. In tho middle of the prlmltlvo
dwellings la a alight elevation, on
which stnnda the stone lamp, employed
for lighting, beating, cooking, and melt

of walrus tuska, with deer antlers for
crosspleces. The mcmlicrs speak a di

Mr. llueklnnd agrees with the explor
ers who believe tho story that Andree

lived for years with theso people In

Hats Corn Off the Cob.
"I can bite an apple as well as I
could when a child, and I can eat corn

said a lady sixty-eight years old and a
customer of Wiee Bros., the famous
dontlsts, of Portland, Oregon.
Hho had been fitted with full sets of
upper and lowor teeth by WIso Broth
ers, and was perfectly astonished to find
that she is now as well supplied with
teeth that she can use as the was when
a little girl. Wise Brothers have revo
lutionized modern dental methods.
There is no more pain to be .feared
by people who have their teeth attend
ed to, and the cost la very moderate.
They make a great specialy of crown
and bridge work, and even wben It Is
necessary to take out all of the old
teeth and put In full new sets, the re
sult is simply wonderful. The false
t ;eth, of course, cannot be told from
natural ones, and the person using
tbem ran do everything he, or abe, I
could do with natural teeth. The sets .
of teeth are made to fit the gums so
perfectly that there Is no slipping, and
the strength of the possible bite is just
like that of a natural healthy set of!
The experience of the lady customer
here related can be yours if your teeth
need attention. No one can afford to
postpone having thoir teeth put in

they deserve. Their ailments are regarded as purely
imaginary, or natural and unavoidable at their time ot
life. Disease and infirmity should not always be associ-
ated with old age. The eye of the gray haired grandsiref
may be as bright and the complexion as fair as any ol i
his younger end more vigorous companions.

and controls every part of the body, strengthens the nerves, makes the
muscles elastic and supple, the bones strong nnd the flesh finn ; but whr 't
this life fluid is polluted or poisoned and loses its nutritive, health sustain
ing elements, then there is a rapid decline of the vital powers, resulting
in premature old age and disease. Any derangement of the blood quickly
shows itself in an ulcer, sore, wart, tumor or some other troublesome
growth upon the body, and rheumatic and neuralgic pains become almost
constant, accompanied with poor digestion and cold extremities.

improve a weak digestion and tone up the Stomach. If there is any heredi
tary taint, or the remains of some disease contracted in early life, S. S. S.
will search it out and remove every vestige of it from the system.
