Henry WcisBinnnn, of the Journeyman

his fellow craftsmen have been con
sidered In all ages and countries, have
chosen some three hundred delegates
to represent them in national conven
tion ut Ualtltnoro beginning Septem
ber 11. The chief dltllcultics these
gentlemen hope to settle is tho no
growing out of tho following state
ment of grievances:
"Our hours are excessively long,
ranging from twelve to twenty per
dy or night. 'J his system of over
work naturally produces n great army
of unemployed at any time anxious to
take tho worst kind of a job. Then
the system in voguo .which compels
men to board with their employers ,
and eat food of tho poorest quality, '
whllo tho lodgings meet not a slnglo
requirement of health and cleanliness
is very vicious."
However, tho union may congratu
late itso f on having done much to les
son tho evils complained of. Ono
grievauco continues. Journeymen bak
ers ore engaged largely from the so-
boarding houses, ''
tho proprietors of

strived for by the
delegates. The de

Lieut. Jaime of tho French navy,

This picture is taken from tho book

gazing abstracted .v down the street.

man who was a waiting a horse car, and,

said, -'F.xeuso me, but did you just

gazed a moment at tho note, assumed
a look of excitement, made a hasty
search of his pockets, and said, "Why,

Tho old man slowly drew forth a
