J. OGDEN ARMOUR T.H15RJ3 are not" a ,fow people Mho hurl maledictions at the ho id of .T.

They have ac- cused him of uurnerlnjt cost of meat being controlled by the cost': of that at one time be owned no less than bushels, or sixty per cent- of Lhe country's available supply j 01 gaining monopolies of banks and railways, of liouiiding- other traders from tho market, and of employing methods of business for which he should.have been arraigned in tlie lay. courts. AVhich may or may not be trup L.u> is true is that J. Ogden Armoui the "Meat as lie has been term cti, is probably 'the most reniarkubU Tchaht prince in the world, and this in spite of the met, that lie was not-In- tended for a business career. His fa ther, old Philip Armourt who first tried sold digging in California and then found fortune in slaughtering and tlrcssins cattle on a, large scale in Mil- waukee, considered his son Ogden was not physically fit for hard work- In- deed, he had always been a sickly child, and it was in-tended that his bro- ther Philip should in due course inherit thc business. The latter, however, dieil. and Ojjden, who had been sent on European tour, was recalled, and started in as office boy in thc packing- house-. From this position he became fi :rk at a week, and gradually moved upwards. In old Philip Ar- mour died, and then Ogden stepped in head of the vast Armour interests. People are rather fond of alluding: to the groat Beef Trust in America. Ac- irdins: Uj the Metropolitan Magazine, however, there is technically no such ig as the Beef Trust. But there are three gveat concerns, Armour. Swift, and Morris, which jointly control a ttore of other packing-houses, and, de- spite some throo hundred competitors, out about seventy per cent, of tho meat product. At the head of the clan, Gallon Armour is in every real sense is kins of moat. Armour has an extraordinary know- of the details of tho srca-t indus- when his daughter Loll I. a. was born a cripple.
