'This is the first strike "of railway clerks in the history of the country to include more than one office force: and railway clerks are the last class of ailway employes to undertake organiz ed effort to escape unjust conditions of service. Approximately 500 clerks are participating in this strike. 'During the past 1- years or more the duties of clerks have been gradu ally increased, and the hours of service lengthened; all other classes of em ployes have received increases in pay end improved conditions of service: the cost of living has increased fully On per cent; the company has become very prosperous; yet, instead of the clerks being permitted to share in the general prosperity of the country, many instances of individual reduction have K-cnrred, and gross injury thus in flicted.

Kansas City Life build nig, Kansas Citv, m. as quickly as possible. "All non-member railway clerks throughout the country who realize that this is the first battle to be fought in behalf of their future welfare should freely' and promptly respond to this ap peal. A general assessment upon the members of the brotherhood is undesir able, because many of them tire being so poorly compensated that it would work a hardship upon them to meet it; it is for this reason that the appeal for voluntary assistance is made. "The members of this organization are determined to achieve the emanci pation of railway clerks of this coun try from the subordinate, unequal and unjust conditions imixised upon them, and to elevate the occupation to a standard of respectability." THREE BULLETS FAILED Sterling Farmer Shattered Bones Be neath Brain and Still Lives, .lejiti Duden. a farmer living near Sterling despondent over an incurable disease of the stomach, made an at tempt in end his life Saturday night by sending three bullets through his head, all three missing the brain. The three slugs entered the right side of the face, just below the temple, and glanced against the lower skull bone, and deflected taking a downward course. In their passage they tore the right eye from its socket, it bulging out on the face, and destroyed the optic nerve. The nasal passage was completely destroyed and the left cheek bone was broken and splintered. The destruction of the nasal passage, together with the other injuries will ultimately cause his death. iIov.v -ver, Mr. Duden is still conscious anl says that he is suffering no pain. 8" FALL PROTECTION.

An 'analysis of the claims shows that accidental canst s lead wi.U .11. while consumption was second with in victims.
