BECAUSE THEY SUFFER. There
are some little things which this
country is doing that our more rahid
German friends, who look upon the
"United States as an enemy, are over
looking. More than 4,000,OOQ pounds
of clothing have been shipped from
Tien-tsin to Vladivostok by the
American Red Cross, destined solely
for German prisoners of war in Si
beria. The task of distribution is ex
tremely difficult and necessitates
great sacrifices upon the part of the
Americans in charge, but when the
work is finally completed the host of,
German prisoners in Siberia will,
each and every one, be warmly clad
in clothing contributed by American
friends. In addition, heroic efforts
are being made by the American Red
Cross physicians to check the spread
of typhoid among the prisoners. Se
rum is being sent from tlie United
States for that purpose. '

of women workers is creeping up.
Where employers are not "making vol

beginning to feel the effect of the up-,
But one class of girl workers still
remains whose pay envelopes, some
how, never seem to fatten the tele
phone girls. And it is passing strange
that it shoukTbe so, for, apart from
the fact that they are devoted, loyal
employes, the telephone girls enjoy
a monopoly of that particular occupa
tion. Picture to yourself a mere man
with five thumbs on each hand, "plug
ging in" to the tune of two or three
"hundred calls more or less to the
hour. Why the "United States would
be peopled with a race of raving ma
niacs within ninety days.
If all the hello girls would go on a
strike in the morning the country
would be on its knees to them before
But, bless their hearts, they never
think of striking, but "plug" away for
dear life and a pittance.
Georgie Perkins is roasting Wilson
for "violating the Baltimore plat
form." We'll give a Nevada mine for
. 6opy of any platform that was not
violated if it meant anything. '
If Doc Cook still feels bad over not
finding wild-inenn-Borneo he might
