There is not one man in a thous
and who will work twenty houra a
day. the week tluotigh, unless he
feels that he must,. The suffering
entailed is too great for 'that. 'And
if, the compaiiy provided enough
men to do, the work properly them
would be no 'opportunity to wcrk
such long hours. If the employees
rendered tlio servico "voluntarily"
they knew the ''voluntary" ser
vice was expected of them.
The argument that the company
does not make money out of this
w:ill not wtand. The employees ic
paid for their oveitimo woik but
it casts less than it would to hire
more inen. Thero is no time lost
in the changing of shifts. There is1

Neglected Colds Threaten Life
(From the Chicago Tribune.)
"Don't tilfle with a cold,' Is Rood
advice for prudent men and women,
it may be vital In the case ot n
child. Proper food, good ventila
tion and dry, waini clothing aro
the proper safeguards against colils.
If they are maintained through the
changeable weather of autumn, win
ter and spring, tho chances of u
surprise from ordinary colds will o
slight. But the ordinary light cold
wilt become severe If neglected, and
a well established ripe cold is to the
germs of diphtheria what honey is
to tho bee. The greatest menaco to
child life at thi season of tho year
Is the neglected cold." Whether
it Is a child or adult, the cold slight
or severe, the very best treatment
that can bo adopted is to give
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is
safe and sure. The great popularity
and Immense si'o of this preparation
has been attained by its remarkable
cures or this aliment. A cold uoy.

given. For talo by all druggists.
