Ceremony Certainly Saved Bride and
Groom Considerable expense In
Wedding Finery.
The funniest wedding I ever saw
was when camping last summer, writes
a correspondent of the Chicago Trib
une. A girl friend and her fnther
were there and she met a young man
whom she grew fond of in a short
time. One night he asked her father
for her hand, but father objected be
cause of the short acquaintance. The
next morning the couple met and
planned to elope, hut somehow father
“got wise,” so this was spoiled. When
swimming that afternoon they met
again and the girl happened to men
tion that her father had gone to the
village and would not return until eve
ning. The boy said: “This Is our
time." A minister was on the shore
and they went to him and asked to he
married at once. The ceremony was
performed on the beach, the couple
attired In their bathing suits.

Exit Dishtowels.
No more sticky plates and no more
dishes dried on dlshtowels.
These are two of the things for
which the Y. M. C. A. training schools
for home assistants is stand-ng. The
school was started in answer to the
demand for home assistants on the
new domestic service plan which have
come Into the central branch employ
ment bureuu. Within the Inst six
months 500 calls for home assistants
have come In, and 170 have been suc
fully filled.
! “There should never he a sticky
■ plate after the home assistant has fln
j ished the course.” Miss Grace H.

to clean a sink and a kitchen range
so that It shines.
“Dishes are never dried with a dish

It Has Happened Before.
As his relatives and friends are
uware, George Wharton Pepper is a
non smoker.
Not long ago Mr. Pepper was about
to entertain some distinguished guests
whom he delighted to honor.
Ills first move in the direction of
their entertainment was to procure
and send to the house some particu
larly choice Havana cignrs, which
“set him back" to the tune of 50
cents each. But It seems the cigars
arrived before it was made known at
home tiiat the guests were expected.
That evening Mrs. Pepper said to
her husband: “Some cignrs came for
you today—evidently a gift from some
one. Knowing you didn’t smoke, I
gave them to men who were working
in the house.** —Philadelphia Ledger.

Marfa, Texas, Aug. 25. —Colonel
laznghorne’s name is respected by the
Mexicans on the border. Hearing that
Chico Cano was in Paloma Springs,
Captain Boudinot took twenty troop
ers and started after him. Near their
destination they found themselves sur
rounded by 100 Carranza soldiers and
were informed that release would have
to await permission from OJlnugu.

turn to the United States, the pack

according to telephone advices. The
remainder of the expedition followed.
Colonel Langhorne said the expedi
tion was considered* a success from a
military standpoint. He pointed to the
killing of five bundit suspects uiid ar
rest of six otiier suspects by the Amer
icans und capture of nine by Carranza
troops at Coyame.
Tiie immediate reason for with
drawal, he said, was that there no
longer was any prospect of capturing
other bandits und there were no more
hot trails to follow.
In addition to recent experience
with a Carranza patrol, the United
States troops were in contact with
Mexican federal* once previous (lur
ing the week. This was when a de
tachment of Americans under com
mand of Cuptain Thurman Boudinot
was forced to pass a Carranaz column
opposite Indio, Tame.
When the Mexicans were sighted,
the Americans took up udvuntugeous
liosltlons, ready for eventualities.'
Captain Boudinot informed the Car
runzu commander he Intended to go
south. The Carranza officer asked
Boudinot for his orders and the latter
told him his orders were to proceed.
He continued then without hindrance,
the expedition reaching a point fifty
miles south of the border.
A request that American troops
should not he sent Into Mexico was

This changed public opinion has been
gradual through constant agitation,
education and organization, but it has
been quickened the past two years be*
cause of organized labor’s prompt ac
ceptance of autocracy's challenge
against democratic Ideals.
Organized labor has not depended
upon words to prove its patriotism. Its
whole-hearted support of the govern
ment in the crisis of war should be
sufficient auswer to uny query on this
subject. This support was of the kind
that befits men and women imbued
with our republic’s Ideals, and who
realize that when a government that Is
founded on these ideals falls the loss
is an individual one for every Ameri
can citizen worthy of the name.
Organized labor distinguishes be
tween a government that rests on the
' whim of one man or a small group of
men and a government of! by and for
the people.
Our 1919 Labor day celebration fea
tures this difference between the two
systems of government which recently
struggled for mastery. The thought
behind these systems Is older than any
nation. In truth, nations are but an in
cident, but a process. In this struggle
of human liberty and advancement
versus the ancient theory of govern
ment so well Illustrated by German
Organized labor is not a peace move
ment. While we long for the day of
industrial concord, when disputes be
tween capitalists and laborers will not
longer feature our Industrial life, we
refuse to paralyze our movement by
surrendering the right to strike against
wrong when other methods fail.
Partners In Life's Work.
At this time several aspects of the
labor question demand consideration.
We need to emphasize the meaning and
necessity of labor —to show that it is
both a law and a means of service. We
need to emphasize the difference be
tween productive labor that performs a
service and makes wealth, and unpro
ductive labor that wins wealth away
from others and lives upon their toll.
We need to emphasize the fact that in
dustry is a partnership, and so it de
mands the participation of all parties
as partners in the enterprises. We
need to realize that the relations in In
dustry are human relations, and so
It is necessary that the relations of
men with one another should be Just
and brotherly relations.-'Exchange.
Out of chaos, out of work,
1 arose and did my work
While the ages changed and sped
1 was toiling for my bread.
Underneath my sturdy blows.
Forests fell and cities rose,
And the hard, reluctant soil
Blossomed richly from my toil.
Palaces and temples grand
Wrought I with my cunning hand.
Rich indeed waa my reward—
Stunted eeul, and body scarred
With the marks ef scourge and red.
I, the tiller of the sod.
From the cradle to the grave
Bhambled through the world a slave 1
Crushed and trampled, beaten, cursed.
Serving best, but served the were!.
Starved and cheated, gouged and
Still I budded, still I tolled.
Undernourished, underpaid
In the world onyeelf had made.
Up from slavery I rise.
Dreams and wonder In my eyes,
After brutal ages past.
Coming to my own at last.
I was slave—but • am free!
I was blind—but I can see!
I, the builder—l, the maker,
I, the calm tradition-breaker.
Slave and serf and clod no longer,
Know my strength—and who Is
I am done with ancient frauds
Ancient lies and ancient gods—
All the sham Is overthrown,
I shall take and keep my own,
Unimpassioned, unafraid.
Master of the World I've made!
Acknowledgment Merely Puts Work
ingman on the Same Plane as
the Capital isL
If there Is not a right on the part
of the workingman to organize, theL
there ought not to be a right on the
part of capital to organize. It is the'
organization that makes capital strong,
and it is not fair, from the legal point
of view or any other point of view, to
prevent the rest of the men dealing
with capital from getting strength
with organization that only organiza
tion brings.
I am for the laboring man. Justice
must be done him or there can be no

Mark of Labor's Progress.
The solid and gratifying progress of
co-operative labor organizations in the
United States was fittingly celebrated
last year by the dedication of the new
central building of the American Fed
eration of Labor in the national capi
tal. The dedication was made by
President Wilson, after reviewing the
labor parade, and his tribute to the un
derlying spirit of organisation in labor
was cheered by men of all types and
stations in life.
Victory by Consecration.
It is the spirit of consecration that
has enabled American labor to achieve
in every field of endeavor results which
a year ago were regarded as impossi
ble. It is this spirit of consecration
that enabled the American people
workers and fighters welded into a sol
id army—to vindicate the freedom of
men throughout the world.
Organized Workers of America

Labor day, 1919, brings to the work
ers of America the right to cheer and
confidence in the

there have been
opportunities that
have tested Its

Every nstlonml and international,
every local union affiliated to the
American Federation of Labor, has
made definite progress in securing for
Its members greater advantages in
those things which are fundamental of
betterment In all relations of life. In
some organizations the success has
been phenomenal.
Taking the labor movement as a
whole there has been greater progress
In securing the shorter workday than
in any other similar period of time.
The meaning of these victories can be
Interpreted only in the light of full
understanding of the meaning of the
shorter dny. The shorter workday is
something more than an economic de
mand. It is a demand for opportunity
for rest, recuperation and develop
ment; things which make life more
than mere mechanical drudgery.
Anarchy In Ruaala Proves That Labor
and Rest of Bociety Must Qo
Forward Togethor.
The future of labor lies in stabilizing
democracy. In that alone Is progress.
<*ne of the great problems of peace is
to erect an Industrial democracy upon
the solid foundations of political de
mocracy. That catF come if labor Is
patient and prudent and self-control
led, but It can never be brought about
through the application of theories of
confiscation or class war.
Autocracy has failed, and failed
criminally, but the failure of bolshev
ism is no less complete, even though
the consequences have been restricted
to a single country. There is no hope
for the world in either. The fate of
Russia proves that labor must g <f for
ward with the rest of society. It Can
not advance alone. It cannot take
everything and give nothing. If It ever
tries. It will wantonly waste most of
the substantial fruits of the war.
