During tno Inst few weeks one
hundred atw fifty thousand men,
women, nd young girls in the
gnrment industry of New York
City have loft their benches and
machines, and have gone out on
strike frr better conditions. Prom
inent among their demands is the
nbolitien of tenement work, called
with pathetic irony ''home1' work.
Of all the blots upon our indus
triahjcivilization, this "sweating'"
system is perhaps the biggest nnd
thoiblnckcst." Homo indeed I Two
rooms, or one, in a crowded, dirty
tetfement airless, dark, cluttered
beyond belief with the mixed-up
rSfuse of daily living nnd inces
stint toil; ranlc with the germs' of
the dread diseases that come from
jiunger and crowding and promis
cuous living; cold and cheerless
and sad. Only a sort of workshop,
but infinitely worse than any shop,
for here there are no laws against
loug hours, child labor, unsanitary
conditions, only unceasing, monot
onous toil for less than enough to
pay for daily bread. Seventy-live
per cent, of all the finishing work
done in the gnrment industry of
New York is done in this way.
Not only is this form of work in
itself intolerable, but it dings
down the scale of wages in the
factory work and seriously men
uces the heaith of the rest of the
population. 2o home is so far
away from New Yuri: that one of
these infected garments may not
reach it. The contractors say
that if any one concern abolishes
home work it will at once be ru
ined by competition with others,
who do not This may or may
not be true. But the question
should not be left for the disput
ing parties to decide. In a cast
so intimately bound up with the
welfare of the whole community
the conditions should be regulated
by the law. One reason whv th
sweatshop has not long ago been
exterminated b.v an indignant peo
ple is given in Mr. Roosevelt's
article in this issue. That sort ol
tiling has about reached the limit.

BEST WAY TO TAKE EXERCISE
No Better Plan Than That of Indulg
ing In Long Walks Has as Yet
Walking, if properly nnd regularly
followed, would become not only a
restorer of health to mnny who nt
the present time are on the road to
disease, but nlso a source of plensurc.
Let the arms swing if you feel like
it nnd the limbs, too; open the nos
trils nnd fill the lungs, and the move
ments will send a gentle electric vi
bration through the entire body, the
result of which is the awakening of
new life. Never take the lazy gait,
as it soon mnkes one tired nnd pro
duces languor. A little perspiration
on the homestretch may prove to be
a blessing not only in carrying effete
matter from the body, but in bring
ing an increased supply of oxygen
into the blood and putting the blush
of health on the cheek.
Perhaps the best time to walk is
in the early morning. The air is
then the most highly charged witli
the life-giving oxygen and the. freest
from dust and smoke which rises
later in the da'. At this time, nlso,
the mind is liable to be free from
worry nnd nnxiety, hence in the best
condition to drink in the blessings
of freshness for us on every hand.
CLAIM FEES ARE TOO LOW
British Physicians Unanimously Dis
satisfied With Remuneration Of
fered by the Government.
The question of whether it is
worth six shillings or eight shillings
six pence to a physician practicing
in Great Britain to give medical at
tention to a patient for nn entire
year continues to be a topic of nb
sorbing interest, not only to the doc
tors affected, but to medical men
throughout the world. The Britisli
physicians maintain that the lower
figure is inadequate. It is likely that
the 120,000 practitioners in the
United States and Canada heartily
agree with them to a man. The mat
ter is being discussed in medical pub
lications in all civilized countries.
The Medical Review of Beviewb
states that the British Medical as
sociation, apparently with the almost
unanimous backing of the physicians
of England and Scotland, is taking
a firm stand against the government,
and at its recent annual meeting
strong resolutions were passed con

THE COST Of LIVING.
The cost of living's awful
There is no doubt of that:
Your wife pa)s sixty dollars
For a simple little hat.
And lobsters cost a dollar,
If you ordered them broiled live '
And if champagne goes with them,
That brings the check to five.
And autos are expensive,
Apart from gasoline:
There are so many fittings
That go with the machine.
You think, perhaps, to own one
Is cheaper than to hire.
And pop goes fifty dollars
Kach time you bust a tire.
It's no use saving money,
For you are sure to lose.
Why, now its costs a nickel
Each time you shine jour shoes!
The cost of living's awful
If you are prodigal,
But there's one way to beat it,
Don't be your friends' severest
critic; be their greatest admirer.
