CHICAGO, July If. The strike Id the great packing plants of the coun try Is on and a meat famine and Im mediate advance in prices are looked for. Over 72,000 workers are affected by the strike order, and 25,000 in Chicago, 13,500 In Kansas City, 8,000 in Omaha, 8,500 in East St. Louis, 9,000 in St. Joseph, Mo., 2,300 in Fort Worth, 3,500 in New . York, 1,150 in St. Paul and 1,400 in Sioux City have gone out ox will shortly quit work. A New York dispatch says that all the 3.500 members of the National Meat Cutters and Butchers' union em ployed in the New York branches of the big western packing houses will quit work this morning. This action was determined on at a meeting of delegates of twenty -two locals of the organization held last night. There are 7,000 members of the union in that vicinity. The men who will strike are Hie butchers and helpers in the establish ments . of Swift & Co., the united Dressed Beef company, Armour & Co., the Schwarzschild-Sulberger company and the "boxers" witi. Nelson, Morris &.Co. and the Cudahy Packing com pany. 4, , ! As an effect of the strike of the em ployees of the principal packing houses in the west the- wholesale price of beef advanced half a cent a pound yester day. If the strike continues there will be further increases. A meat famine at New York may be the consequence if there is any protracted struggle. The strike is the result of a stubborn At' COURTSHIP IN PUBLIC.

The roman ! tic side of southern life has been her 4 aided a great deal, but the average nor- k therher, after sizing up the situation m I a sentimental way, is likely to con 1 elude that the courtships are too strict and the marriage not strict enough. WB;' When a young man decides to pay his attentions to a young woman, he begins by locating her residence and pacing up and down in front of it. He may have to put in several hours a day at this Job for weeks and months be fore he succeeds in getting the young lady to look put of the window. If she looks out while he is doing his sol itary sentry duty in front of her home, even though she does not notice him, her action is taken as encouragement to his suit. When she begins to return F his ardent glances, after a few weeks more of patient parading, then things may be said to be coming on lamy . well. TTo to this time not a word has pass ed between the young people. They have never spoken in their lives. All . thev know of each other's character or disposition is hear-say. The young man now aooroaches the fatner or xne 1 girl and asks his permission to speak jto her. Tnl granted, he approaches i the house as she leans out over the ftalconY. and they have their nrst con I fversation. There is nothing to prevent the members of the neighboring fami Woa e-rr.m hfwrincr all that passes be tween them, and there is generally an j interested audience to this prelimi- nary bk.ii uiiu, ns il When the young man finally enters the ittouse he has no more privacy in his courting than if he had remained in kne street because one or more mem- ibers of the family remain in the room during his call to keep their eye on him nnrt listen to what he has to say. They may listen as attentively as they will, yet they will not hear much. Hisremarks are confined to eomplimen ftary statements to the girl. He begins with her hair and ends with her feet. He tells her that she is beautiful, and says it in as many ways as he is capa llble. She says "thank you" to all his j remarks, and the call is over. He nerv ier has a moment alone with her until he gets her home from the marriage keremony. He does not know whether he is getting an angel or a shrew.

" Every year is leap year in Paraguay. There are six women In the country to every man. A long time ago this lit tle nation passed through a disastrous war, during which the major portion of the male population was killed. Strange to say nature has not correct ed this unequal state of affairs, for since that time the great majority of all children born have been girls. A bachelor does not stand any more show of escaping matrimony in Par aguay than an old maid in Alaska. He must marry or give some mighty good reason for not doing s. There are so many women after him that it is less trouble to marry one of them than to be continually bothered by them all. The prevailing scarcity of men has made the women rather a stren uous dot. From necessity they nave learned to do the work generally per formed by the sterner sex, and wniie doing so have not been slow in taking up some habits that we think are not polite for ladies. They are mighty good judges of smoking tobacco and are large consumers of strong cigars. Although handicapped by a heavy bas ket on her head, one of them can tacK into the wind and light her cigar as cleverly as an Irishman or a cowboy. Thev carry tobacco, matches, money and everything they need in the front part of their waists, so that any arti cle they require will he witnm easy reach without taking the load off their head. After making a sale of fruit or vegetables, one of them will toss a coin into the bosom of her dress like a mer chant would throw cash into his money drawer. It does not embarrass tnem in the least to make change. Men are so scarce that whn a woman gets a husband she takes splendid care( of him. He can have his meals at any hour and need never bother his head about the flour barrel being empty his wife looks after that.

The packers say there is fresh meat enough in Chicago to last about ten days. i . .' . . New men will not be employed for ten days, so the police profess not to expect trouble for that time.
