Textile Hard to | T*r i Organize Women n orkers into unions By JOHN GOLDEN Labor Leader umii HA\ L FOLND from long and varied experience that women I wage-earners are as a rule hard to organize. In the first place, they don t seem to think it is necessary for them to do any a thing to improve llieir working conditions, and when you begin to talk seriously to them in regard to these matters they either fail to grasp the seriousness of the situation, or other wise imagine that the work of uplifting the condition of the toilers, both as regards men and women, is solely the work of the former. I do not mean to say that this applies to all women workers, but it certainly docs apply to a vast majority of them, hence the present lack of organization among women wage-earn ers, in spite of the persistent work done in their behalf. As an illustration, let us take the textile industry. There arc over (100,000 textile workers employed in this industry, covered by cotton, woolen, silk, flax and jute. Over one-half of these are women and girls. Act there are not 10,000 of them that belong to any trade union. The textile unions of this country have spent thousands and thousands of dol lars in an effort to build up strong organizations of women workers. They ha\e got foi (hem shorter hours of labor, improved their working condi tions, and many times secured them higher wages, yet in spite of all this the work of organizing women workers in the textile trades is both slow and difficult. \\ hen you endeavor to show the younger women and girls the neces sity of joining their union, you meet with the reply, “O, well, I don’t expect to stay at (his work very long. I either intend to get married, or to go into some other occupation.” omen in almost all industries are the underbidders in the labor market, not willingly by any means, but simply because conditions have made them so. & ■ ■■. in .. 1.1 „ To one who loves children and would see them grow up after the old rule, To Save “healthy, wealthy and wise,” it is simply _ appalling to note how carelessly parents Cihlidren allow them to be on the streets at all hours of the night. Returning from the theater OH. UIG lately I noted no fewer than 40 little girls Street I and boys, without tic protection of older persons, on a certain boulevard. —n i None of these was over 14 years old B, B. BLANCHE BRUCE 60mC ° f th ° gh ' ls WerC V( ‘ r - V niccl - V dressed in dainty garments with huge bows Of bright ribbon on their heads, betokening parents in at least comfortable circum stances. Most of the children seemed to be under 10 years of age. A few of the little ones wmre apparently newsboys, dirty urchins who ought to be cared for by the probation officers if they have no parents capable of looking after them. I have long believed that a curfew law such as the good priest “back of the yards” has established to keep children indoors after dark would save many from becoming criminals. I feel very strongly on this point, for no hour of (he night seems too late to find small children in the street. I wake in the night and hear them. This is a vital matter if we would do effective work in preventing young people from becoming criminals. The subject should be agitated until a remedy is found. Little girls and boys walk through the down town streets and hang around the entrances of theaters, begging under the pretense of selling gum or papers. If the men will no nothing to prevent this, I hope that (he women will take it up. Save the children and prevent crime. Hj In the matter of a short cut to sensible woman suffrage it seems to have fallen to Slmnlf* the gofKi fortunc of a Louis Catholic ” priest to invent the most thoroughly prac- Method I tical method of bringing t about, so simple * m and effective that our only wonder is why H-l ** O 111 dll it was not discovered long ago. Woman suffrage, based on wifehood •* and motherhood, is reasonable and full of —i—_______ the principles of right and justice toward B, SAMUEL PARKER P 0 *?" ot W" 1 " 1 ™ " whose aid there would be soon a condition | under which nobody could vote, there be ing nobody to vote. AA’orking under this plan a powerful weapon is put into the hands of American marriageable women whereby they can place themselves at once and in advance as beneficiaries of the new dispensation. Instead of referring the suppliant at her feet (asking for her hand and life part nership) in a too hasty manner to “papa,” let the future wife and mother assert her citizenship and womanhood in demanding of the would-be bridegroom a guaranty that he and she shall be partners at the ballot box equal before the law in every particular. No one could possibly have a more direct or vital interest in public affairs than the mother of the future citizen. AAoman suffrage should take on anew impetus from the powerful agency imparted by this unanswerable plea for wifehood and motherhood. Amish farmers use the most practical co-operation that I have ever run across.

Spread Whole Box of It on Crackers —Not the Least Injury Resulted. Cuticura Thus Proven Pure and Sweet. A New York friend of Cuticura writes; “My three year old son and heir, after being put to bed on a trip across the Atlantic, investigated the state room and located a box of graham crackers and a box of Cuticura Oint ment. When a search was made for the box. It was found empty and the kid admitted that he had eaten the contents of the entire box spread on the crackers. It cured him of a bad cold and 1 don’t know what else." No more conclusive evidence could be offered that every Ingredient of Cu ticura Ointment Is absolutely pure, sweet and harmless. If It may bo safely eaten by a young child, none but the most beneficial results can bo ex pected to attend its application to even the tenderest skin or youngest infant. Potter Drug & Chom.

Father, on his return from the office that evening, was nat urally much interested. “Didn't it hurt?” asked father. “Sure, it hurt,” replied Willie. "Weren’t you scared when the dent ist put you in that big chair and started all those zizz-zizz-zizz things?” "Oh, not so much.” “That was a brave boy. But, surely, you suffered?” “Of course I suffered. But I just kept repeating over and over the golden text we had in Sunday school last Sunday.” “The golden text? What w’as it?" "Why, 'Suffer little children to come unto me,’ ” replied Willie, glibly. “I kept saying that over and over to my self, and the first thing I knew it didn't hurt any more.” Beware of Ointments for Catarrh that Contain Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the whole system when entering It through the mucous surfaces.

The manager of the employment agency was used to hearing women in search of maids ask applicants ail sorts of queer questions, says the New York Tribune, but this matron made him mildly curious. Of 14 girls in turn she had inquired; “Have you worked in a minister’s family?” None of them had. "Too bad,” said the ma tron to the manager. "None of these girls will do.” "May I ask,” said the manager, “why you are anxious to know if these girls have worked in ministers’ families?" "Why, the fact is, we’re very hard up just now,” said the matron, candid ly; "I want a girl who knows how to economize, and those who have worked in clergymen’s families, I’ve discov ered, have learned that lesson.” Ours and Theirs. “A play on names unconsciously per petrated by my youngest son was very funny," said a Flatbush man the other day, “We live next door to a family named Feitenour, and the other night while my family was busy read ing in the library we heard a racket on the back porch. My son went out to investigate, and on his return ray wife, always inquisitive, asked what had caused the noise. " ’Nothin’ but a couple of cats,’ Jim told her, and then 1 heard her ask: ‘Did you see whose they were?’ "’Yes; one was ours and the other was Feitenour’s.’ ” Weakened by Alcohol. Dr. Bertillon, the eminent French vi tal statistician, has shown that tuber culosis is twice as prevalent among the retail liquor dealers of France as among other shopkeepers.
