However, we will cite an instance that occurred last Thursday evening that will in itself more thoroughly explain our shop methods. A farmer, whom we will call John Smith by way of identification, was driving a large six-cylinder touring car to Hamilton from Oxford, when a steering knuckle broke while he was coming down Heitzman Hill, render ing the car unmanageable and finally landing it in the ditch. Mr. Smith used the phone in a nearby home and called the Brayman Service Station. The disabled car was righted, towed in, steering knuckle replaced with a new one, radius rods and fenders straightened out. Two hours later Mr. Smith was driving his car home again, instead of having been put to the usual delay and expense. Mr. Motor Car Owner instead of trying to tinker with your automobile, bring it in tp our Service Department where a skilled mechanic can locate your mechanical troubles and repair them at a minimum of expense and time. We only CHARGE for SERVICE actually rendered. A trial will convince you.

'"I don't want to make any crazy predictions, but I am willing to wa ger a little that the population of Hamilton will exceed 75,000 in 1925 or 'fess up that I know nothing of the game. I have been in the real estate business in every city in which Henry Ford located one of his plants and the growth that I predict for Hamil ton has been the experience of every one of those cities I refer to." The above statement was made by Mr. Shipman, of the real estate firm of Leinbach, Humphrey and Shipman, promoters of the Lincoln Park site, which is located around the Lincoln school on the west side. Mr. Ship man bases his pre liction on his many years experience in founding cities where Ford's and other great indus tries caused large increases in pop ulation. its "SMILES" Handed The Press In Serenade by Military Band. The 136th Field Artillery band ar rived in Hamilton Monday morning at 9 o'clock to boost the Victory Liberty Loan drive.

San Antonio, Tex is—Organized street car men employed by the San Antonio Public Service company have raised wages 26 per cent. The new scale is 40 cents an hour the first year for motormen and conductors, and 42 cents thereafter. The old scale was 30 and 35 cents. The increase means an additional 95 cents a day to first year men and 65 to 70 '*ents for those employed more than one year. This is the third advance these workers have secured within the last three vears. Topeka, Kan..- -Wage differences between the Street Car Men's union and the Street Railway company have been ended by the workers accepting the company's offer to raise wages to 34 and 38 cents The men asked for 40 and 45 cents. n Women's Bill Being Fouirht In Massa chusetts Boston—The biggest lobby in years swarmed through the state house in an attempt to kill the 48-hour bill for women and children. Business men came from every sec tion of tahe state, and every trick and device was urged to stop the pas sage of the bill. "If you can't kill the bill, stick in these amendments," was the cry of the lobby. One of the amendments proposed a 51 instead of a 48-hour week. Another would allow the mill owners and mer cantile and industrial establishments to work the women and children 10 hours a day. The third would prevent the bill from becoming operative until July 1, 1920.

S S. *t: i StriRe Still On At The Hamilton Machine Tool Co., With No Change In The Situation. Despite reports to the contrary, the strike is still on at The Hamilton Ma chine Tool company's plant, known as the "Klondyke." There are few men, brought here from other cities, with just a sprinkling of Hamilton men at work. Every method is being used to cause dissatisfaction and dissension among the union machinists without avail. Last week dodgers were scat tered throughout the city in attempt to belittle and discredit the business agent of the organization, who is Ted Smith, saying he receives $40 per week to create trouble and discord and that lie 'should worry." That is an old game and only works as a boomerang. It was a splendid free advertisement for the machinists' union and for which the machinists desire to extend their thanks to the donor. Heretofore many of the non union machinists didn't know to what extent the organization goes to bet ter conditions of the craft. They didn't know that the organization em ploys a business agent to look after its affairs. After reading the dodg ers the non-unionists woke up to the fact the machinists organization is a live one and on the job and many new applications are coming in as a re suit of this free advertising. The un ion machinists are saying that Ted Smith is earning twice as much as he receives and no doubt the organ ization will show its appreciation shortly and n a substantial manner. ,i .,y 1 In the meantime—the strike is still We are offering exceptional values in seasonable merchandise in Dry Goods, Ladies' and Gent's furnish ing goods.

The Brotherhood is now conducting a referendum vote on the question of a general strike against the govern ment-controlled telephone systems. These workers are asking that they be given rights accorded other gov ernment departments, which include the establishment of committees to adjust grievances and the recognition of the workers' right to join trade unions.
