Down In Auburn, a pretty little city I of central New York, is a branch of the International Harvester com pany. The company employs hun dreds of men at good wages and its pay roll is over $375,000 a year. All this is spent in the town. But a lot of labor agitators visited the town and got busy fomenting trouble among the laborers while the town sicked 'em on. Finally the laborers struck and the owners of the con cern tried in vain to run the mill with outside help and every new em ploye was stoned and harassed until he quit. The owners thought it over and quietly prepared for a change of location. The other day they an nounced that the mill was closed permanently, and set a gang of me chanics to work taking down the machinery and packing it for ship , ment to Nuess, Germany, where it will be set up and work resumed j They prefer to pay the tariff with low wages than to pay high wages t to Americans who do not know when ganger, wno see tne new sign tnejP are vell off- The town la panic I 4 w7." - P m remember stricken but can you blame the vubi. wune oauu springs water is 99.98 per cent pure Abilene la ah THE COUNTRY EDITOR.

The executive council at a special meeting yester day let the contract for the Gllck statue to be placed in stautary hall at Washington to Charles Henry Nlefcaiie, sculptor of New York. The statue, with the pedastal and mounted in the hall will cost six thousand dollars, the fnll amount appropriated by the legislature for the memorial, for the first Demo cratic governor Kansas ever bad. The statue will be cut from Carrara marble and will be seven feet high and mounted on a base of gray gran ite four feet high. On the pedestal will be cut "George Washington Click." It must be in place by May 1. 1914. A clay model of the statue is tobe sent to Kansas this summer and later a life size clay model is to be made and exhibited in the sculptor' studio in New York. Mr. Nlebaus is the man who car ved the statue of Sen. John J. In- galls. ' There is a peculiar course of coincidences connected with the lives of Governor Gllck, Senator In galls and B. P.

Pay will be frqm Saturday noon' to Saturday noon. v 3. .We allow no liquors on these grounds and ''cigarettes will not be tolerated and no smoking while working. 4. Each and every workman will be held responsible for his own work and work not properly com pleted after receiving proper instruc tions must be replaced at your own time and expense. 5. Be careful of all your, work and actions and do not injure stone or any material at work; treat this as you would your own work and be considerate. 6. Do not transact your business , or visit on our time as your time, while you are working belong to your employer. ' 7. Do not be late to work. Have 1 yourself and tools at your place of ; work at 8 and 1 o'clock. ' 8. Do not leave your work .at any time unless compelled to do so. 9. We are abundantly ble to do all the cussing that is to be done. 10. Please remember that If your work is not acceptable to ' the government Inspector it cannot be so to us and if he asks you to do a certain thing or change a piece of work, do so and do it as speedily as you can and ask no questions. Ever remember that the government has placed him here to show and see that this work is completely proper ly and it must be so. GEO. A. SHAUL, Contractor. By D. E. Jones, General Supervisor.
