One hundred and eighty-live month

United States and Canada are devoted
exclusively to the advocacy of trade
These 364 publications, which num
ber does not include socialist peri
odicals, reach a not inconsiderable
portion of the laboring community
and exercise an influence in it which
is little suspected.
There are in North America ap
proximately 2,500,000 working people
organized into trades unions, and
each of them receives the official or

belongs, and usually one or two other
But the prestige of these journals
extend beyond the enrolled mem

They number among their subscribers
many sympathizers and non-union
workmen they are placed on the
tables of reading rooms all over the
country, and for every subscriber
there are probably two "readers. It is

How a Preacher Rebuked Those Who
Conlyibuted the Pennies.
Dr. Munhall recently closed a suc
cessful religious campaign in Empo
i'ia. A great many pennies had been
put in the offering, and his attention
was called to this. One night he held
up a silver dollar and a copper penpy
and gave a conversation held by the
"You poor little red cent, you you
don't amount to anything. I'd hate to
be you," said the big dollar.
"I know I'm not very big," replied
the cent, "but the children like me
and I can buy a good many things."
"Huh! you can't buy anything at
all," said the dollar. "Just look at
me .big and bright and shiny. lean
buy a whole lot more than you can."
"May be so." said the little red cent
meekly, "but i go ty church a heap
oftener than you do anyway."
Laying a Ghost.
On one occasion in Scotland a guest
Arriving rather late at a country
house was quartered in the haunted
room. Although professing to be a
sceptic, like many others, his cour
age vanished with the light. Deter
mined, however, to protect himself as
well as possible, he placed a loaded
revolver under his pillow and awaited
events. As the clock struck midnight
be saw a. fleshy hand at the end of
the bed, and, steadying his nerve, he
addressed the visitant thus: '"if you
do not instantly remove your hand I
shall fire without further warning."
He counted three and then discharged

Women Wear Rubber Boots.
While it has always served its pur
pose as waterproof footwear, the wear
ing of the rubber boot has been con
fined largely to the masculine sex. A
number of the young women of Mus
kogee, however, have discovered that
Muskogee mud is real mud and that
the shoe will not stand the continual
quantity of earth and water which
coats the streets of the city during the
winter or rainy season. Many of them
appear on the street wearing neat lit
tle rubber boots. The dress of the
girl may be of the latest cut, and the
hat of the latest style, but peeping
from beneath the skirt is the rubber
boot, plain and sensible.
Where Man Is Gallant.
In many foreign cities there is a
marked absence of the gallantry that
In t.hjs country habitually characterizes
the attitude of men toward women.
Eleanor Gates, a young American
writer, who has traveled widely in the
United States, says that deference to
ward her sex decreases with the in
creasing density of population. In
sparsely settled regions of the West
woman stands upon a plane tacitly su
perior. New York is the most tingal

Modeling in Bread.
A new phase of the art of modelling

New Window Plant.
A novel and attractive window plant
may be developed from the common
tomato. Planted in a pot, with a
frame arranged to support the climb

a foliage plant, and when the small
fruit it bears ripens in midwinter it
is quite pretty and is seldom recog
nized for what it really is.

occasion in Budapest to send a regis

Sheep Industry in Australia.
The greatest .'industry of Australia
is sheep raising, mainly for the sake of
the wool but .also in part, of course,
for the'meat. Australia now ranks sec

countries, Argentina being first with
92.000,00 sheep, Australia second with
72,000,000 and Russia third with 70,-
