Agitation Along the Rock Island

The scarcity of labor throughout
Ihe country is causing a general
shaking up of the wages paid truck
men in railway freight houses. The
work of truckmen is of a kind that
any able bodied man can-do and the
fact that it is steady winter and sum
mer und that those who follow the
occupation are reasonably protected
from the inclemencies of the weather
have combined to prevent the wages
from being raised as in other lines of
work. The result is that, when there
is a scarcity of men, esjX'cially during
the spring of the year, there is more
or less difficulty on all roads in keep
ing enough men to dy the work.
The local offices have been experi
encing this difficulty this -year as
perhaps never before. The Burling
ton recently made a slight raise in
the wages of its men in this city, fol
lowing the same action in other
places. Other roads have found it
necessary to do the same in the larg
The agitation is especially strong

have been granted in the larger cities
along the line and now the movement
among the truckmen for better pay
has become general and there is talk
of forming a union for the enforce
ment of the demands. The freight
house men in this city receive $1.40 a
day and they have made a demand for
$40 a month. Their cause has been
taken up by the officials of the road
in 'Chicago and while the system of
paying by the mouth may not be
agreed to it is considered likely that

One rule which has already bet n

Mrs. May Webb, President Woman's
Kaffe-klatch Club, Menasha,Wis.,is Advised
by Her Doctor to take Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound for Inflamma-'
tion of the Womb, and is Cured. She says:
" Dear Mrs. Pixkham : How little we appreciate health until
it has left us ; then it appears as the most precious gift to mankind.
I enjoyed good health until four years ago when I caught a severe
cold at the menstrual period. I thought little of it at that time, but
when nine weeks after I found it had settled into inflammation of the
womb, I wished I had been more careful. I suffered agonies fdr
months ; lost my happy disposition, and nothing seemed worth having
if I could not have my health. My good old doctor, after prescribing
several worthless remedies, was good enough to say Try Lydia E.
Finkham's Vegetable Compound, several of my patients have
been cured through its use.' I did so ; I had great expectations, and it
did not disappoint me. Before the first bottle was used I felt relief ;
I took it faithfully for nine weeks, and that blessed Compound surely
cured me. It seemed to build up all the weak parts, allayed the
inflammation, and brought blessed health back to me. I know how
to appreciate it, and I know also that it was due to Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound only." Mrs. Mary Webb, Menasha, Wis.
