Meaning of Cemetery.
It Is not correct to say that ceme

The word is from the Greek "Kolmc

the place of the dead. There Is nothing

THE STORY OF THE PCANUT
As everyone knows, C. W. Tost of
Battle Creek, Michigan, lsnot'bnly.a
Baker of breakfast foods, but ho is a
trims individual who belle ves.that tho
trades-unions are a menace to tho lit
city of the country.
Believing this, and being a "natural
bom" scrapper for thorlght, as ho
ecs it, Post; for several years' -past,

tare against "The Labor Trust," as he
Hkea'to call it.
Net being able to sccuro free and
vstraBtmeled expression of his opin

has bought advertising space let tills

for the telling of his Postuni "story,"
and be has thus spent- -hundreds of,
thousands of dollars In denouncing

these organizations: how they are
honeycombed .with 'graft; how. they ob
struct the development of legitimate
business, curtail labor's output, hold
up manufacturers, graft upon their own
Membership, and rob the public. Natu
rally Post Is hated by the trades
unionists, and Intensely.
He employs no union' labor! so they '
ess not call out his men, and he defles
their efforts at boycotting his products.
The latest means of "getting" Post is
the widespread publication of the story
that a car which was recently wrecked

with empty peanut shells, wb!ch""wero
being shlppcl from the south to Fost's
establishment at Battlo Creek.
This canard probably originated with
President John Fitzgerald of the Chi
cago Federation of Labor, who, It is
uld, stated It publicly, as truth.
Post comes back, and gives Fitz
gerald the Ho direct. Ha denounces
Fitzgerald's statement as a deliberate
falsehood, an underhanded and coward
ly:attem.pt to Injure his business, hav
ing not the slightest basis in fact. As
such an effort it must be regarded.' It
U significant that this statement about
"the peanut shells" is being given wide
newspaper publicity. In the ''patent

that labor-unlqnltes are insidiously
