THE PLUTOCRATIC TRAM Pf
Sirs. Whitehead Gives a New Jerser i Cdltor m. Neat Little Itoast. i Special Correspondence. Kansas needs and is advertising for 20,003 men to help gather the harvests which are now grow ing: upon her fertile prairies, but not a tramp in All New Jersey will start for Kansas, at least not .' n L 1 . iV 11 I IL N. J.) Journal, May 21. ; No doubt in this case the Elizabeth Journal tells the truth. Strange how these tramps ignore chances like that! Why can't they see and do what is. for their good? I suppose the Elizabeth Journal thinks if these tramps were "wise and good and, above all, enter prising each would order his private special car and Journey out to Kansas and add to his millions by helping the Kansas farmer gather in his crops. ' The Elizabeth Journal's comments reminds me of a little story A certain well to do man who did not believe in giving money to tramps once departed so far from his principles as to give a . nickel, accompanied by the question, What are you going to do with it?" The tramp studied over the problem for some seconds and then answered sol emnly, "I'm going to invest it in gov ernment bonds." Whether the sarcasm of the thing penetrated the self com placency of the munificent donor I do ilOl Know. Ui course me ti auiy iuiu a lie, for the obvious reason, if for no oth er, that our government does not fur bish any place for 5 cent Investors. But, seriously, how does The Journal think the tramps could get from New Jersey to. Kansas If they wanted to go? Have they money to pay car fare? Can . they fly ? Should they steal a ride and get 1 killed for their theft or should they walk? If the latter, they would probably find those nearer home were there before them, for, as The Journal ,well knows, there are many more than 20,000 Idle men between New; Jersey and Kansas. Every strike shows to all 'who are not blind that there are men waiting for work, for they come to take the strikers places. The shallow way in which some newspapers treat the tramp problem ' makes me weary. As Lizzie M. Holmes once wyote, "Some people seem to think tramps ought to float around In the ' air, except when somebody wants them v to come down and do a dirty 50 cent job for 10 cents.'? She hit It abput right. Has The Journal taken any pains to know how much It costs to go from New Jersey to Kansas, how long the ' If The Journal man would seriously ' etudy the tramp problem, remember ing of the tramp what the abolitionists used to say of the slave. "He is a man anil a lirnhor " Vie wnnld lJirn snitlP things that would make a better man of him. ' Cklia B. Whitehead. Denver, May 29. ., i Gompersi Hast a Plan. A Chicago dispatch states that Pres ident Gompers has a plan for prevent- idea is to have all labor unions affiliat ed through national organizations with the American iFederatlon of Labor. As fast as a number of these independent or nonaffiliated unions have become parts of their nationals, and national , unions in existence desire it, the Amer ican Federation through Its general of fice in Washington and in the name of that national or international body will communicate with the large employers of that particular craft, proposing a conference between the officials of the employers' organization, If there be one. If no employers' organization exists, then' It shall communicate with large manufacturers, dealers or commercial 'bodies Interested, and whose members are " large ; employers of labor, asking them to meet and bring about some agreement or understanding fair to both. . TheseN agreements. If made, are to cover the usual questions of hours of labor, wages, conditions of employment, etc. While it is planned1 that these agreements, when reached, be signed Dy Doxn parties to it, no otner Dona man tne wora or nonor or ootn raitu- f ully to carry out the same Is to be given. Employers' associations are expected to see that their members carry out their part, while on the part of labor the American Federation of Labor will compel its affiliated unions to do theirs or cancel their charters. Star Away From Londoa, Owing to the large increasing Influx of Americans to London in search of work and the overstocked condition of the labor market the New York World correspondent Is asked by representa tives of American benevolent societies ' to draw the attention of Americans at home to the virtual impossibility of getting work here. Written testimoni als are useless. Besides, it Is Impossi ble for the unsuccessful applicant to work his way back on a steamer or sail ing vessel without some knowledge of a sailor's duties. .While the Americans In London are desirous of assisting their fellow countrymen In need by helping them to return home, It is Im practicable to assist an ablebodied man who comes here on the lookout for work. Timely notification of the fact may deter many from journeying here to suffer untold hardships. Cattle men constantly tell tales of be ing dumped down here and refused re turn passage, which, they assert, was guaranteed to them before starting. That Synod Resolution. Following is the text of the resolution recently adopted at Pittsburg by the Reformed Presbyterian Synod of Amer ica: . , That we reaffirm our testimony against all se cret oath bound societies and that we regard membership in most of the labor and trades unions as at present organized and controlled as danger ous and remind our members that the law of Christ forbids joining any labor union which has either an immoral obligation or a promise to keep inviolate "as long as life remains" any rites or regulations the issue of which ha is necessarily norant. . , . I " USES OF PARAFFIN. Hoyv It Atda the Housekeeper In thm Practice of Economy. No product of petroleum has a great er variety of household uses than re fined paraffin. This is because it ex cels any other known product in the Ideal quality of its service and its econ omy of price. ' As housekeepers become acquainted with its virtues they find that nothing else Is as clean or as pure or as taste less or as Odorless. Moreover,! it is not affected by air, acid or water. ; 7 " " Trominent among the many uses to which It is now applied are for sealing cans in preserving fruits and jellies, in laundry by rubbing on irons and mix ing with hot starch, for coating wood en vessels, preserving ecjrs, flowers and autumn leaves, for polishing floors and making wax flowers. In sealing 'cans the paraffin wax should be melted and a layer about one-eighth of an inch thick poured over the top of the preserve,' allowing it to stand until the paraffin becomes hard, when It will form a sealing absolutely airtight. No other covering is necessa ry. When the preserve Is to be used, the paraffin should be locsened by run ning a knife around the edge, after which the wax can be easily, removed. Jellies and fruits sealed in this manner retain their natural delicious flavors' and are effectually protected against mold and insects. In seailing bottles the cork should be forced into the neck of the bottle In order to form a shallow cup on the top. Then fill this cup with melted paraffin, allowing It to harden. Z - s In the laundry about one-half a tea cup of paraffin shavings put into a boil er, cf hot .water gives a dainty white ness to the linen and other wash fab rics. It, will, not' injure the most deli cate fabrics, and by Its use the family washing can be done in about one-half the usual time, and it saves the neces sity of hard rubbing and scrubbing. Irons can -be kept smooth, bright and clean by rubbing them on a piece of paraffin covered with muslin, and a luster will fefi? giygn to the linen by mixing a small apiece of paraffin with the hot starch. Laundry tubs, ice cream freezers in fact, all wooden vessels when coated with paraffln will last much longer than ordinarily. House hold Gazette. How to Make Rhubarb Pie.

How to Eat According; to the Hales of Good Breading:. Do not leave your spoon in your tei cup. Crack the top off your egg in stead of peeling it. If you have bacon or fish, have a sep arate plate for your bread or toast and butter, but not when only having boiled eggs, which require very careful eating, by the bye, as nothing looks so nasty, as yolk of egg spilled all over the plate and egg cup. , Do not sip your tea or coffee with a spoon. . Do not drain the cup. , For fish do not use a dessert knife instead of the fish knife. If there be no fish knife, use a small crust of your bread, but leave that piece of crust on your plate. Do not eat it afterward, as so many people do. Do not be dainty and fringe your plate with bits, of meat. Eatwhat you can and put any skin or bone oh the edge of your plate in one little heap, which move down from the edge when you have finished. : 4 Do not crumple up your table napkin. If you are only a guest for the day, do not fold It up, but if you are staying on and in a quiet household fold it up. If you are staying in a big house where everything is done "en grand prince, do not fold it up. Just place it on the table when you leave, as in rich estab lishments there are clean table napkins every day. After eating it is well before you drink to wipe your Hps, otherwise you leave a smeary mark on the glass. Do not gulp liquids and bolt food.. Do not masticate or swallow audibly. Do not pile your plate with food or grasp your knife, fork or spoon as if it were a weapon of warfare. . Do not crumble the bread by your side or drain your glass to the last drop. .5 -v;:-.;. r ' -:."; ''.!;.'"; On the other hand do not be affected and eat as if an appetite were a crime, drink as If you were a dicky bird and hold your knife, fork and spoon as if they were redhot needles. r ' ' ' - f: How to Clean Clothes. A saturated solution of borax and water rubbed on with a sponge, then followed by clear water, will remove a glaze, the result of wear, from blact goods. , Borax is one of the best things for he removal of grease spots from wool en goods. A cleaning mixture of which it forms an important part is made by dissolving one ounce of powdered' borax in one quart of boiling Water and set ting it aside to cool. When, quite cold, add one ounce of spirits of camphor, and it is ready for use. , For some cleaning purposes the ma terials are commonplace articles to be found in every household. A cut raw potato may be turned to good account when you get mud stains on your black dress. The mud should be left to dry before any attempt is made io remove Jt. Brush it off as thoroughly as you can after it has dried and then if any stains remainrub, the "cut"surfaceof "a raw potato over the spots. -r To -remove grease spots from silk moisten the spots with chloroform and rub with a cloth till dry. How to Clean Embossed Leather. Turpentine is recommended by a wo man who has tried it as a satisfactory cleaner for embossed leather. It should be applied with a soft cloth. This removes the stain, but slightly stiffens the leather, which must be made pliable again by rubbing briskly with crude oil. Use a very little oil and go over the piece with a clean cloth upon which there is no oil, as care must be taken to get all the surface grease off to prevent soiling the clothes. How to Serve Spinach. After spinach has been cooked till tender set it in the oven to dry for ten minutes. After that cut it tip and sprinkle with salt, pepper and a little dry mustard. Now add for each pint a teaspoonful each of oil and vinegar, dropping them in alternately.4 Stir the spinach well, so that the , seasoning may reach every part, and serve on slices of toast.
