It is earnestly desired that every citi-

Those who cannot enter actively into
the work of the society can nevertheless
beccme members by the annual payment
of one dollar and thus in a substantial
way show tneir interest in the work.

Our card has had the effect of bringing
two more firms to close at 6:30. We
hope the good work will go on in bring
ing all the clothing firms into line. We
are in sympathy with tbe clerks and labor
organizations and as long as there is any
chance in the world to get them all to
close, (wkich ia nothing but just and
fair), we will remain closed. We
have a large Moline trade and we
cannot afford to drive that or any other
trade way, but if all are brought
in line we will be with you. To encour
age the clerks to use all tneir persuasion
and power to urge all to close we will ex
tend the time and not open until March
16, hut hope all will sign. The "Bnide"
concern which is bo terribly jealous of
our succss, we cannot console, as we
consider them beneath our notice.

little more, so."
He bowed himself out in a graceful
way, and had been gone fifteen minutes
