Attempts  to Control a Rifle
New York, .Ian. 4.���The World of
today says that the powder trust, protected by a prohibitive tariff and rolling up millions in profit in its supply
to the United States government
aicm- , will, on January 9, employ ev-.
erj possible means to gain control of |
the .National Rifle Association, so
thai. If successful, it can dictate the
character of the ammunition for every
slate military organization in the country. The occasion will lie the election
of a president of the association to be
held in the Seventy-first Regiment
From July I, 1905 to July 1, 1906, the
trusi sold to the government r,,<i)T.-
820 pounds of ordnance powder. The

32 cents a pound. The price charged '
the government was Tu cents a pound,
so thai in that one item alone the approximate profit was 3S cents a pound,
Deducting freight charges this aggregated $2,215,562.92. Powder amount

cents, ai 111! 2119 cents, and 7,$60
pounds for ihe 38 calibres, costing .Mi

The luial profit approximatelj footed ni' $2,348,364, which is greater than
any profit ever derived by an) sellei

Spokane, Jan. 4. -The Great Northern, Northern Pacific and Oregon Railway and Navigation
Company's offices have issued orders to conductors
advising them that no passengers should be taken in
Idaho, Montana or British Columbia, with Spokane
as their destination, unless they have obtained a certificate of vaccination or good health, as otherwise
they will not be permitted to leave the train at this
Dr. C. V. Genoway, in charge of the local health
office, says the order exceeds the demand imposed
by the Spokane health board. He notified the railroads to warn passengers from lumber and railroad
camps that they would not be allowed in Spokane unless they could show a clean bill of health, as the

I'Mii' bad  v. i: i.e.--i'i nianj   remarkable
proofs uf ihe growing power of a newer    and    wider   public   opinion.      The
battle of 1 lie people againsl privilege
ha.-- been a long one, and while ihe
champions of justice and free bun
could Bpeak only to the few whom,
here and there, 1 heir voices could'
reach, ii  seemed a hopeless one.
"Truth loses bailies, but never loses
campaigns," said some Ine, and these
apparently   hopeless  bailies  were   pre-
paring the way. Education spread;
a free press scattered information
broadcast; steam and electricity, mocking at distance, drew people nearer
together, and privilege found its old
plan of "divide and conquer" less and
iess effective. Today, all over the civilized world, old systems are questioned
- -old privileges challenged. The
wires bring us, almost every day,
particulars of Investigation and suits
in -which ihe big corporations and
money lords of ihe United States are

ihe beginnings of the same order of
things: and even here in British Col-,

��� lie favored few, has been compelled
lo submit itself to lire popular verdict, and is on trial for its life.
Even in the old Country, the de-
mocracj has arisen and ihe battle between the "(kisses" and the "masses"

lit the old  times people had an
idea that the night air was noxious.!
They shut their windows before go- i
ing- to  bed,  under the impression
that   it   was   better  to  breathe  the
same air over and over than to have
fresh air when  the sun  was down.
That notion still survives in some'
regions, hut it is disappearing, and
now comes an  Englishman���a lecturer at the Institute of Hygiene in i
London���who  declares  that  night
air is purer ami more beneficial than
the air breathed during' the day. He
urges people to take their walks at
night as much as possible, instead of j
going out  when the sun is blazing;
and the microbes holding' high revel1
ami even regrets that it isn't practicable to have children ta1<e their
outdoor recreation al midnight.

was doing bis daughters an injustice
by not placing just such a person at
tbe head of his family, to say nothing
of his own loneliness, but we girls '
seemed to take a different view of the
affair, and "thereby hangs a tale."
We were sitting chatting quietly one ]
day when he "dropped upon us" and
Informed us of hat, intention of bringing home to us a mother. We knew
without his telling "who" the object of
his affection was. I was first inclined
to laugh, but controlled myself in time

That night my thoughts were far

been such a good father to us, even
though he did have a temper, and we
had left him.
I could keep up no longer. I laid my

fell asleep, and I was awakened by
the voice of my landlady saying:
"Well, I'm sure I don't kuow whether
