Idikoport, N.H. —“Our little girl. 8 years of age, was in a debilitated, run down condition, and had a stubborn, chronic cough. While she did not have to stay out of school, on account of her condition, she was weak and ailing all the time and far from well. “We treated her cough, but nothing seemed to help heruntil we tried Vinol, after which we noticed an immediate improvement. Her appetite increased and now she is strong and well and wo can recommend Vinol to other parents who have delicate, ailing children.”— CJeo. A. Collins, Lake[»rt, N. H. What Vinol did for this little girl it will do for other weak and ailing chil dren, because they need the tissue-build ing, strengthening c<>d liver elements and the tonjc iron that Vinol contains. Jt is delicious to the taste. That’s why Vino! builds them up so quickly, and we ask parents of delicate children in this vicinity ’to try Vinol with the understanding that we will return their money if it fails to give satisfactory results.

Alar Gloves, Smart and Practical FOR street wear, just now*, smart ] gloves are made fu two-button lengths and in heavy and medium weight kid. Equally well-liked fabric gloves, patterned after the kid ones in style, are made of double silk, ohamoisette. and suedfp lisle. They are found most practical for those whose gloves must stand daily wear. To those may ite added the always fashionable gloves of chamois skin that are as washable as those made of fabrics. Preferred colors in kid are black stitched with white, white stitched with black, and tan gloves with self color stitching. Stitchlngs in heavy lines are featured, and machine stitch ing which outlines the fingers along all seams, with thread contrasting in color with the kid, is an item not to be overlooked in selecting smart gloves. This decorative stitching is featured on silk and ohamoisette gloves, as well as on those ot kid. To the tourist or the business wom an whose gloves see daily service and are often put on and off, fabric gloves give the greatest satisfaction It is economy to buy several pairs, three at least, in well-made silk or chamoi sette. and alternate in wearing them as one alternates the wearing of street shoes. It is an easy matter to wash these gloves, and in the better grades no fault can be found with their wear ing qualities. For warmth combined " it It good looks, the glove of double silk has everything to recommend it A good quality costs a dollar and a half, tits the hand beautifully, and is much warmer than kid. It is a little more expensive than glove:, of elm uoiaetto I The latter range in #rice from lift) i cents lo a dollar. They are well made, 1 with all the marks of the smart street • glove, and have made an undisputed j place for themselves as a practical so lution of I lie glove question for the woman who is looking for good ap pearance and good service. .

At the right of tin* plate and next to it the knife for tile game; next tile soup spoon and : the fork for oysters. At the left of ! the plate is the large fork, the second size and the salad fork, with the nap kin beyond if there is room, or it may he folded on the plate, and the dinner roll is enclosed in it. Other knives, forks and spoons may be added as the meal progresses. Bread and but ter plates are not used for dinner, but may Iip used for luncheon. In serving a meal a serving table is of great assistance to a maid, and is almost invaluable to the hostess, if she lias no maid. If it is placed at her left within easy reach it may hold a large number of small dishes, plates, knives, forks, spoons and save the hostess from leaving her place at the table. When the dishes are passed i by the maid a small silver tray cov j ered with dainty dolly is used. For Grease Spots.

LABOR UNION IMS SUIT DANBURY HATTERS' BOYCOTT CASE DECIDED AND UNION IS FINED $252,130.09. PROPERTY IS ATTACHED Celebrated Boycott Case is Settled After Eleven Years of Litigation. Two Hundred Labor Union Mem bers Effected. Washington, .Tan. -Ending eleven years of litigation, the supreme court today held that some two hundred Connecticut labor union members must pay Ill.itLL'.u.ot) damages under the Sherman antitrust law. for a nation-wide boycott of I) E. Lou we & Co.. Dutibury, Conn., Imt tnanufuetur era, who refused to unionize their shops The bank accounts and homes of many of the men already are un der attachment to pay the judgment, and the nexi step probably will he foreclosure. Leading lawyers of congress dis agreed today on whether this decision meant that union workmen would be liable in the future for damages on account of boycotts Some hold that the Clayton antitrust law, pus sod last year, after this suit bad been tried, would make another such pros ecutlon impossible. It was in the Danbury hatters itc-e that the supreme court decided, in r.ms. that labor unions were subject to the terms of the Sherman anti trust law and sent the suit back to the New York federal courts for trial The judgment, the largest ever before the court under the Sherman law, as well as the vigorous defense of the union men, attracted widespread at attention to tlie litigation. Justice Holmes announced the court's unanimous opinion today. His decision of the law involved was brief. He said the ground for discus sion under the Sherman law had been cut away by the Itms decision to a large extent, and narrowed further by flu* decision in the eastern states retail lumber dealers' case of last year to the effect that the circulation of a list of "unfair dealers" with the intention to put the bun upon these dealers, among a body of possible con sumers, combined with a view of joint action, was violative of the Sherman anti-trust law. Most of the decision dealt with the lac-ts and application of the law to the facts. The justice pointed out that Hie defendants were some L’uo mt-m hers of both the I'nited Hatters of North America and of the American Federation of Labor. With brief c hi sideration, he arrived at the conclu sion that the New York federal courts which tried the c-ase were right in holding that a forbidden combina tion had been .proved. "It requires more than the blind ness of justice," said Justice Holmes, "not to see that the many branches of the i'nited Hatters and the Federa tion of Luboi in pursuance of a plan emanating from headquarters, made use of such lists (unfair dealers) and of the primary and secondary boycott in their efforts to subdue the plaintiff to their demands. The union label was used and a strike of the plain tiffs employes was ordered and car ried out to the same end, to break up the plaintiff’s commerce affected by the quality of the acts.’' This left the controversy, narrowed down to the responsibility of the ile fen dan is for what was done by the labor organization.-)- The defendants were laboring men, as a rule, not em ployed by Loewe A- l’o., but living in nearby towns, and a few were na tional officials of the hatters’ union On the question of responsibility the justice said: "The court in substance instructed the jury that if these members paid their dues and continued to delegate authority to their officers unlawfully to interfere with the plaintiff's inter state commerce in such eircum I stances that they knew or ought to have known, and such officers were warranted in the belief that they were acting in the matters within their delegated authority, then such mem bers were jointly liable, and no others. It seems to us, that this in struction sufficiently guarded the de fendants’ rights. "It is a tax on credulity to ask any one to believe that members of labor unions at that time did not know that Hie primary and secondary boycott and the use of die 'we don't patron ize' or 'unfair' list were means ex pected to be employed in the effort to unionize the shops. Very possibly they were thought to be lawful." In support of the conclusion that the members knew of the means to unionize the shop, the justice referred to the hatters' union bylaws for strike and union label agitation funds, and cited the provision in the American Federation of I^abor constitution for prosecution of "what it called legal boycotts.” “If the words of the documents on their face and without explanation did not authorize what was done." lie ctuliiiued, 'the evidence of what was \ Draft—You Catch Cold—Then Follows Coughs,Cold Stiff Neck Neuralgia Especially in the piercing pain of neuralgia or 1 he dull throb of headache is Sloan’s Liniment wonderfully relieving.

The German govtMiment, according to a statement today before ’he house loreiun affairs committee, does not expect "this country to prevent the exportation ot arms and annn unit ion to the Kuro penai belligerents.” Chairman F'lood of tin- committee said lit- understood that the German government, through its foreign office, liad taken this ; os: tiou and Representative Metz of New York told tire committee lie recently ha I talked with hi-’h authorities" in IBerlin who held that the Unified States was within its nights under in ternatio ’al law in permitting trade in war supplies witlh the helligierents. ‘Chairman F'lood made his state ment in the course of an argument with Representative BarthoidU who was before the committee advocating his resolution which would1 empower the president to prohibit such expor tations. I He asked Representative Bartholdi if this attitude on the part of the German government would altar his conviction us to the times sit> for the proposed legislation. The latter replied that Iris opposition to the traffic in war supplies was not controlled by the German govern ment, hut was- based on a sense of "international morality."
