NO 0 In our last we promised to speak on the nocesMt.v of organization: The laborer and the farmer are the only classes of men who have not the alvautage of thorough organization. Every state has a bar association, in which the lawyers meet and discuss p'ans for the advancement of the pro fession, a schedule of fees is adopted rilns idmission to practice are for mulated, and through the influence of the association are adopted by the courts. A lawyer, in order to become a mem ber of the "'liar Association," must hive learned the tr tie, or have pnic ticed for a certain length of tune, and have been admitted to practice.in. urts of record. And who will say that the Bar nssc •iiations of the various st ive?, and flu National association, have not, been o: amense benefit to the profession until, while representing in the census f'T Iowa only about oua per cent oi the population, they represent in tin legislature about seventy five percent: and this too, while they are neithei b9tter morally, or higher mentuily thai •thers. \V hen a person is taken sick, the? send for a physician, and piy for hi services such sums as has been deterni ined by the Medical association, am while the fees for services may be, anf 00 doubt are higher than Iht-y wou'r be if no association existed, yet rhrongh theexchange of ideas, and tin opportunity of profiling another': experience, as gained liy metnhershii in the association, moru efficient ser /ices are rendered than would other vise be possible and the same is trui is well in regard to dentistry. In the line of journalism we hav the Association, State and National and through the influence gained lrgaii'zation, proposed laws are foster id until they have a place on our st.at ute boons, or opposed until the bill iefeated and the attempted legislatioi is buried beyond redemption. The Ed itorial association places a man on tin mnnacle of fame, or buries him in ob livion. It moulds public opinion, anc sits public sympathy in the. desirid direction. In the mertantile world there is nc longer individual effort every brand of trade :s governed by organization The importers, the wholesalers, th* jobbers, and the retailers each have their organization in every line of mer chandise. If a man dies his coflin is bought of 1 representative of the furniture deal ers association his burial robes camt through hands of a member of tlw clothier's association his body is pre pired by one who belongs to the asso ci ited undertakers, and his funeral preached by a member of the minister ill association the widow receives tht life insurance from a beneficiary socie ty which belongs to the "Fraterna1 Congress," an association composed of all the legitimate beneficiary organi sations of the country. The chances are that her home is under mortgage, and she clears it bj paying the money to a representatm of the Bankers asssociation, and if sh* 'ails to pay it, a member of the Sher iff's association will serve notice of foreclosure. She prepares her children for schoo1 by buying shoes made by the She Manufacturer's association, from leath er made by the tanners associatioi md passed by them to the leather lealers association. She buys books made by some mem tier of the association of school-boo) Tianiifacturers, and sends them t( school to a member of the Teacher associatioh, whose president is a mem oar of the County Superintendents aB sociat.ion. Does she wish to make a visit oi ir take a trip on business, she hup 'ier ticket of a railroad company whos' general manager belougs to Getters' Managers association, and whose gen eral passenger agent, general freigh igent, master mechanic and mastei car builder, eash belong to their re: spective association It is recognized as an established factnthat in business, individual effor is at a discount, and as Governor Shaw iaid in his first inaugural uddress The chances for success for the mai of sm ill means in business, are very remote." In other words, if a man of small means, wishes to enter the business field, he must associate himjelf with others in like lino of trade, or go to the wall. If then, it Is so necessary that theri ba organiz ition in every profession and every business, is it not. equally at mcessary that there be organization among the laborers? those who "keep the wheels rolling," and upon whose faithfullcess and tfliciency our com f.irt, aye, even our lives depend? Ifitwa-- not for the laborer how long would we have a railroad, a fac tory, a mine, a bank, a school, a church or even a government. \Ve iioiictft' a statement a lew days ago, that the evident aim of labor ii lionism, was not individualism, but t'i sink individual ambition, and be ime apart of the whole, This is true, in so far as by sinking individualism, we m*y benefit the whole body and that benefit redounds ti us as individuals. The lirut groat aim of organised la ir, is to gain recognition of the nat ural and oonuMtuMonal rights of man. T« be judged from a moral and inte imitual, and not from a ftrmnoittl »t»nd point recipient of favors thit the wages paid to labor is only a return, in part, of that woalth which labor has crea ted. Organized labor wishes to impress upon the public mind thut the honest, manly laborer is just as good as the honest banker, lawyer, physician, or tradesman, and that the libertine, the thief and the gambler is no better, if he is a millionaire, than if lie was found in the ranks of the laborer. Organized labor wishes to correct the idea which in the past has gained credence, that crime,and wrong doing \v«-r« almost natural with the laborer, tt.d that the good behaviour of this class was omy secured by surveilance tnd to impress the fact that in pro portion to the numbers in the two classes, there ure more than live times is many criminals among those who not. labor, as among those who do Organized labor wishes to keep it be ore the public mind, that when the iation called upon men to perpetuate 's existence in 01, the laborers of the iountrv were the first to say "We an eady And when in '!»8 the call came icain for men, labor manned the ves e!s and filled the ranks of the army. Organiz lhb wishes to empha 7.4 the fact that, the laborers are tht tnlwark of the nition. Organized labor wants, not, a redis tribution of Hie wealth aiready ere ited. but to receive a just and equita »le share of the wealth his lalir creates Vnd we are pleased to note the incli lation on the part of a great many ot »ur best writers and speakers, to grant ,o labor, social and mtelectual stand og long denied. Why cannot unorganized labor oh t-iin the same results, hoped to be ob ained by the organiza ion I will try to answer this in our next A WOliKINGMAN. ll'm Moore, of Dunlap, was a Vallet visitor Sunday.

For the past fifteen hours I have been traveling through the greatest wheat producing region in the entire world, with the possible exception of portions of the liussian dominions. Left St. Paul last night at 10:30 and awoke this morning in North Dakota. To one who is accustomed to seeing wheat fields like those in Ilarrlsou county, the sight of a North Dakota wheat, field is rather interesting. In the wheat producing region of the north a fence is an unknown luxury. The shocks of unthreashed wheat ex tended on the broad prairie in every direction until the horizon fits so close to the ground it shuts off farther view. From all indications the North Da kota farmer is a very prosperous indi vidua). As yet there is no visible sign of the granger marketing his wheat, as it remains where it was left, by the harvesters. Corn nviv be King, but wheat has a lead pipe cinch on the Qieen regency. In 'lie section through which' we have traveled todav, land costs from 85 to $'20 per acre, 820 buy ing the very choicest, land, on which wheat averages about. 25 bushels to the icre. can be and is produced. About, n.-.on or shortly after we left the wheat belt and entered the region where they produce beefsteak by ih* 'on.

I remember one lumdromo young fel low whom I used to meet occasionally ou the staircase who captured my youthful fancy. I met liiiu only at midday, as he did not l'ise till late, and this fact, with a ecrtain scrupulous ele gance and neatness in Ills dress, ought to have made me suspect that he was a gambler. In my inexperience it only Invested him with a certain romantic mystery.-!- One morning as I was going' out to my very early breakfast at a cheap Italian cafe on Long wharf I was sur prised to find him also descending the staircase. He was yerupulously dress ed even at that early hour, but I was struck by the fact that he was all in black, and his slight figure, buttoned to the throat in tightly littlng frock coat gave, I fancied, a singular melan choly to his pale southern face. Nevertheless he greeted me with more than his usual serene cordiality, and I remembered that ho looked up with a half puzzled, half amused expression at the rosy morning sky as he walked a few steps with me dov.-a the deserted street. I could not help snjing that I was astonished to see him up so early, and ho admitted that it was a break iu his usual habits, but added, with a smiling significance I al'tofrtvard re membered, that It was "an even cluiuce If he did it again." As we noarod the street corner a man in a buggy drove up impatiently. In spite of the driver's evident haste my handsome acquaintance got in leisure ly and, lifting his glossy hat to me with a pleasant smile, was drive?) away. I have a very lasting recollec tion of his face and figure as the buggy disappeared down the empty street. I never saw him again. It was not until a week later that. I knew that an hour after lie left me that morning he was lying dead in a little hollow behind the Mission Dolores, shot through the heart in a duel for which he had arisen so early.—liret Harte's "Under the Red woods."

It is generally to the interest of an employer that an apprentice should not learn his trade as a whole, but only a little section of it, says Joseph Horner In t'ussier's Magazine. It pays better to keep a lad repeating the perform ance of one section of his craft than to leach him all. More money Is made. But the apprentice becomes a young specialist, a prig iu his teens, cocksure over some little piece of handicraft at which he may earn something over his normal wages, and many a lad does not become disillusioned until ho has to face the world and try liis luck In other shops. And therefore tho best shops in which to place a lad are not the big es tablishments, but the small ones, where every class of work is done and where tools aiul appliances are often scant. A lad will learn more In these than in those replete with every appliance and minutely subdivided into sections and groups. The best training for a lad today Is that which he can evolve for himself. The greatest evil that can befall Min is to become a specialist and nothiug more while In his teens. Yet that Is what must happen if he spends several years tending machines or doing re petitive, unvarying tasks In one big es tablishment. The best training, therefore, today Is that gathered by the peripatetic youth. If a lad cannot gain experience in ono place, he should move about, gathering as much as he can accumulate with one firm, then on to another, and at tending training schools as opportunity, otters. Ills views become broadened, he becomes self reliant, and in time, having found his true work, ho may. settle down as a specialist. DRESS UP FOR SUICIDE. Said to Be an Invarlnblc Rale Wlthl 'Women SeekliiK Deuth. "If I should ever be called upon to furnish indisputable proof of tho in herent pride of woman," said a police sergeant, "I would point at once to hep Invariable rule' of dressing uj) in her best clothes when she goes out to com mit suicide. In my experience on tho force I have had occasion to handle a good many suicides and afterward In vestigate their personal affairs, and In every instance I have found that tho poor unfortunates prepared themselves for death by donning their best bib and ueker. "The majority of the printed reports of suicides say that the clothes of the dead woman were 'good' or 'well made* or 'elegant.' If tho woman contemplat ing suicide owns a silk waist, she wears it. Her broadcloth skirt and silk petticoat naturally go with this gar ment, and she selects her best shoes. "I have looked up the history of many of these respectably clad suicides and have found that tlicy owned but one gown with which they could make a decent appearance on tho street and that that one good dress was chosen without exception as the appropriate garb in which to make the exit from this world's stage. It makes no differ ence what manner of death is chosen, the costume is carefully selected. "Lot a woman sleep her life away un der the influence of drugs or burn her soul out with acids or sink into the slime of the liver, she clothes herself In her most becoming garments and seeks the end with npparent tranquillity. Iler Instinct of gentility and elegance la clothes Is with her to the last, and even iu tho face of death she shrinks from a public appearance in unbecom ing raiment."—New York Sun. Hlgli Mountains of the Moon. The Leibnitz range attains enormous altitudes above the average level of the moon's surface and is sometimes seen projected far beyond the regular curva ture of disk, thus destroying the circu lar contour and giving it a notched or serrated aspect. Several of the peaks of these southern mountains measure 30,000 feet in altitude, while one has been estimated to attain the great height of 30,000 feet. All the chief mountains of tho moon which can be seen from tho earth with a telescope have had their heights ascertained. Tho German observers, Beer and Maodlcr, have calculated tho height of no fewer (ban 1,095 lunar mountains. Tho Do riel mountains supply an Instance of great elevation, the peaks of the three leading ones being between 25,000 and 2C.OOO feet high. Among other luuar peaks may bo mentioued Iluyghens, 21,000 feet Iladloy, 15,000 feet Brad ley, 13,000 feet, and Wolf, 11,000 feet. Embalming.

Perhaps not 0110 body In hundred Is burled without having the fluid Inject ed, aud that settles It. You won't read your obituary notices then.
