Mary, the heroine in "Labor's Re

by the union label trades department
and the American Federation of La

its discomforts and unkind treat

She was compelled to carry great

loads of books and papers and other
heavy burdens for ten hours a day.
Her father had been injured while
at work in a machine shop. There
were no workmen's compensation laws
to protect him and all the money that
went to pay the rent in the miserable
garret and purchase the limited
amount of goods necessary came
from Mary's work in the bindery.

where she was frequently harassed
by a forewoman of the usual caliber
found in non-union shops.
A loaf of bread and bottled milk

Regarding the Almost Ridiculous
The policy of the new Burnett Store does
not call for the use of misleading com
parative prices in advertising, so we wish
to make this explanation:
Comparative prices used in this partic
ular advertisement are the prices that ap
peared on these garments when passed to
our hands by the former owners. In ar
ranging sale groups we disregarded former
prices and considered only one point—
"Offer each garment so low that there
won't be a bit of hesitancy on the part of
the buyer in recognizing it as a bargain!"

and plaid materials. Get here early—these will go quickly.
