SOUNVADVICE Given New Union By Labor Editor Fresno, Cal.—The recently organiz ed Fruit Workers' Union, which has made remarkable progress, is given this advice by Editor Carnine of the Fresno Labor Leader: "In spite of your wonderful success —or rather because of your success you will now enter upon the pei'iod in your career as a labor union which will try your metal. "Open opposition from employers— organized or unorganized—is an easy thing to meet and overcome, com pared with those sinister undercur rents which will now appear in your own ranks and which will precipitate upon you issues which must be square ly met. "All other young organizations have had to meet these issues. You cannot escape. They are inevitable. "These dangers may be clas^iiie i under three heads: "1. The well-intentioned, hut poorly informed member who talks much but thinks not enough "2. The ultra-radical who would warp the true mission of your union to fit his economic or political dreams "3. And the common, every-da' garden variety of stoolpigeon." Ra UNIONISM IGNORED And Failure Follows News writers' League Strike New Haven, Conn.—The strike of the Newswriters' Equity League is a failure that must be admitted, says the Connecticut Labor Press, which points to the futility of attempting to improve conditions without affiliating with the trade union movement. The striking newspaper writers started a paper, which has now passed into pri vate hands. This paper emphasize that the strikers were not affiliate with the trade union movement "This," says the Connecticut Labor Press, "naturally removed from the minds of the employers any fear that they might have to combat the labor movement in opposing the newswrit ers' league and that helped them a lot." In Bridgeport, near here, the news paper men organized under the Inter national Typographical Union, anc some of their members were dis charged when they presented their grievances. The victimized reporters were reinstated, however, when a dele gation representing the State Federa tion of Labor and the Bridgeport cen tral body called on the publishers. "That," continues the Connecticut Labor Press, "was a striking illustra tion of the difference between bei ig in the trade union movement and be ing out of it."

F-- MINED COAL DURING WAR Washington.—"The miners of this country could secure conditions they are now demanding if they took ac tion similar to the British miners, said David Wallace, representative of the United Mine Workers of America. "The British war law," said Wallace "did not deter the miners from apply ing their economic power during the war. The miners of u own country adopted a differed course.

ANGLING FOR RICH PATRONS How a New York Milliner Catches the Unwary Western Woman With Money. In Woman's Home Companion, Corinne Lowe tells of the wiles and thrift stamps. used by a Fifth avenue milliner in mak ing the "Fern Piper" hat famous: Those for whom the spider spread Its web were not the wealthy an3 unfashionable women of New York, but wealthy and prompt customers from the middle West. These are the people who make money for every Fifth avenue specialty shop. Ami the only difficulty which now lay in our path was that this profitable ctis tom always has to be secured through a reputation for serving the most fashionable members of New York so ciety, those notorious fashionables who are so sensitive to a second bill and who never think of paying their first one until at least six months have elapsed. "At first wo did not have a single member of this sorority. What we did was to fake them. This was achieved by several Ingenious meth ods. One of these was to pay $10 a week each to the chauffeurs of Mrs. Philip Rhlnestewart and of Mrs. Clin ton De Salle Rives for driving their crested limousines up before our doors when these same ultra-fashion able employers were otherwise en gaged. The empty limousines were extremely efficacious, and it was not long before the women who were try ing to get into fashionable society were impressed. One by one they came to us. 'Meanwhile, we were also paying the clerks of two of the smartest of New York's hotels to recommend Fern Piper to their rich out-of-town ps trons." JOB HAD NO SUCH WOES Boils Were Not Like Getting Your Nose Caught in a Cogwheel Under an Auto. Speaking at a dinner, William II. Thompson of Kansas referred t" beauty of patience and contribui• o a anecdote along that line. Some time since Smith and his wife went out for a spin in their new auto mooile, but before they had gone many miles something went amiss with the machinery. Crawling beneath the car, Smith began to twist and turn things, and finally there came sundry words that sounded like breaking one of the blue laws. "John, John expostulated the go^d woman in the car. "You should not n «uch dreadful language!" "Of course I .shouldn't, Mrs. Smith!" Irritably responded hubby. "Of course 1 shouldn't! I suppose that ?f you were down under here y »u would •weetly sing!" "You should have more patience, returned Mrs. Smith. "Why don't you try to be like Job?" "Don't quote Job, madam!" the old man.

To remove a splinter innu the hand, fill a wide-mouthed bottle nearly full of hot water, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. Thrust the injured part over the mouth and press it slightly The flesh will be drawn down and shortly the splinter will be exposed under the action of the steam. This method is far better than the common and dangerous practice of pricking the flesh with a pin or knife pn'nt. The usual antiseptic solution should be ap plied. First War Stamp Bank Built.
