COCKY BANTAM PLAYS HORSE TO AMUSE TWO
SICKLY YOUNG-PRINCELINGS
Cockiest bantam in all England is
old Chanticleer. He was trained in
Windsor park and his business is to
amuse the two delicate little sons of
King Ge6rge. These princelings are
not as strong as they might be and
they have to play very quietly. Chan
ticleer and two linnets are .their fav
orite playmates. The cock is hitched
to a small cart, Mr. Linnet reclines in
the rear seat, and Mrs. Linnet, being
a militant old dame, perches on the
driver's seat and runs things to suit
herself.
Leather chair seats that have be
come dull and soiled may be fresh
ened by rubbing with the white of
an egg, then polishing with clean
soft cloth.
OUR DRIFt TO LABOR WAR AND REVOLUTION
TIME TO SEARCH FOR BASIC CAUSES
I BY) HERBERT QUICK
Our drift toward labor revolt and
revolution has gone so far that we
can already analyze the type of civil
war which has become an American
institution.
This type of insurrection will pre
sent to the historian the repeated ap
pearance of certain active factors.
(1st) A body of workingmen who
are normal American citizens in
peace, and are impelled by some in--dustrial
force to strike work and try
to tie up industry Failing to tie it
up, their actions are directed to the
end of making the strike so expen
sive to their employers as to render
them cai'eful of incurring such trou
bles in the future.
(2d) A great employing concern
which refuses to treat with the men
on one or more points involved.
(3d) A body of mercenaries em
ployed as fighters by the employers
under the name of mine guards.
These professional fighters are hired
out by concerns organized, like the
Baldwin-Felts Company, and consti
tute a privately-paid military force,
with rifles, machine guns, and all the
paraphernalia of regular war. They
closely resemble the Free Companies
of soldiers who fought so ferociously -in
the middle ages in Europe on any
side which promised adequate com
pensation. (4th) The state mihtia and the'
j&ftfeaftfcuba.
