Editor of thc Weekly News:���
I have read with much interest tho
varioua coi-.innnicaMomi on "Household

your valuable paper. The writers, though
offering some useful aaggosrfoM do not
strike at the root of the difficulties. If
they do not direotly ussert, they at least a-t-

How many of our girls who consider
then-selves not only eligible for marriage,
but even great prizes iu the matrimonial
market, oould uua-siiisted prepare a simple
dinner of four coursca without spoiling two
of them'! How many could go into the
poultry yard, take a chicken in its raw
state and make an appetising broth for un
invalid? How many witb all the resources
of an orchard and a kitchen-garden at their
disposal could lay up a score of palatable
jam**, jelleys, puikK-s- etc?
I* it any wonder then that these young
wou.cn ou takiug charge of homes of thoir
owu find them-it-lvos continually worried
and perplexed by duties whioh to a properly trailed person would appear but trifling?
Many young wivea bravely attack these
early troubles aud with an indomitable
spirit fin illy succeed in conquering them,
but too often their health and temper suffer
very matt-rially iu the uonftiot.
Mothers aro greatly to blame for this
condition of affairs. Solicitous that their
daughters shall always preaent a lady-like
appearance, they do no allow them to soil
their hands hy any kind of rough word.
No small benefit might re ult from adopting a custom prevalent in England during
the last century. Girls on uttainhig their
eighteenth birthday were sent to tho home
of some trusty worthy friend to supplement
their home training, and no matter whit
their rank might be. they wero expected to
take a part iu all kiudu of work,
De r Editor-��� Iv'e been re-tdi g. as many
have, the admirable arholes in ji*ur paper
lately upon Household Duties. I just tbink

would nt thoy be easier dune if simplified?
And th-ju this i ume correspondent closes
with this bit of advice which she calls good:
"Dont a*ik your mother or wife to wait on
yon if you aro ablo to wait ou yourself,"
and sho r.ddfl, "Titii wili l.asen the luuifc-

Well,   did you ever !
I quite agree that chillren ahould be

their mamas to a reasonable extent,
but the very Uttle oim-i have tu ho indulged.
I  delight  to   wait   on   my    husband !

Si- we h-ive established a little rejipro
city. When he comes home tired I
bave everything ready so be cun wash
aud change his garment*, aud iu the
fall and winter I make it a point to
havo a b-iigltt tire, and tho big arm
chair ia waiting. and his slippers which
I have worked arc placed near. And he
liken to get home! If he comes home
from a shift at 11 p.m. in addition
there is always a light in the front
window as a sort of welcoming smile.
And  he   appreciates  it!

Oh, we have   never   ceased   courting!

reaching home.
There is no drudgery.
The rea*>oii is because we manage to get
everything done acuordim* to a system, and
have time for iutercourae witb others. I
am not a slave to housekeeping and that is
not neglected, or home rendered comfortless
or unhomelike,
I am trying to make the most oat of life.
I think home is the sweetest 'word in the
language as it implies all other sweet words,
aud things. But a wifo wbo does not know
anything bnt housekeeping can't make a
happy home. She's a drudge. Mid that ia'ot

ahould have a mate, a companion as wall,

. Selection or ifaih.���Tlm Winter lied*.
It ls all very well to havo tulips and
hyacinths associated lu the mind with
spring breezes, and bird songs, and
^trulls through the parks ; but now is
thc time to thiuk about the ordering
naid the planting il wc would enjoy
these beauties in tlie early spring.
It's the same old story every year!
"VVc are enthusiastic over the bulb
blooms throughout the entire spring,
rido long distances to admire raag-
���iiileent bulb beds iu tho parks and
on suburban lawns, llrmly resolve
tliut wo win cultivate the beauties
in our own yards another spring, and
then straightway forget all about
the fact that the bulbs must be
planted In tho (all, until another
spring brings Its usual round ol admiration, and longing and regret.
From the middle 01 September to tlie
last of November It should be considered tho duty ol every flower lover
to Constantly remind the public that
the sea-son oi bulb planting has conic.
Every small yard and tiny garden
space can grow bulbs quite as successfully and handsomely as the most
carefully cultivated and extensive
lawn, and if this fall reminder is
brought beforo every newspaper
reader, what a wealth of beauty
would greet ns every spring ! ,
Bulbs of ii.ll kinds ure now so Inexpensive tbat tlie humblest homes may
be brightened and gladdened by the
flowers of the early springtime, .Many
amateur flower growers have un idea
that the bulbous plants are moro diiii-
eult oi cultivation than plants grown
fjom seeds. That this is a mistaken
idea a little study and experience will
prove. Tulips and hyacinths are as
easy of cultivation us sweet pens and
nasturtiums, and they offer Bpecial rewards to those wlio cultivate them.
Tliey aro in lull and gorgeous bloom
before the seeds of other dowers are
planted. Tne first cost of the bulbs
;s greater man of seeds, but tlie bulbs
(acreage so fast that oue mny iu n
few seasons have a line collection of
bulbs Irom a small outlay, Besides
the Btnndbys (.tulips uud hyacinths)
there aro the crocus, narcissus, jon-
nulls, snowdrops, lilies, and many
others splendidly adapted ior outdoor
planting, nnd all inexpensive as well
as of easy cultivation.
Itili A 81 CCESS10N (iF BLOOM.
Ui course 11 is impossible io. uao b^-
gluuer to stoei; the garueu beus llie
nrst season with every variutj ol
.hardy liiobs, but it is possible to
choose enough uiffereut sorts to keep
up the buppiy oi flowers Irom earliest
spring until Into iu the season. Having a bulb or two oi dillerent .-orts
the lovo of certain varieties will
grow upon us us we become acquainted with them nnil succosslul iu
their culture, nnd it will be easy
enough to increase tlie colors .and
kiiius of our special favorites as the
seasons come aud go. Out of the
cold uml the snow oi tlie spring will
gleam the exquisite purity ol tlie
snowdrop, the dainty blue and white
oi the scllla Stberlca, and ita very
near relative, "Ulory of the Snow-," or
L'liionviioxu Luciliea. Sido by side
with these nnd quito as oarly, clusters oi crocus, will appear���mammoth yellow, bine, white, royal purple, striped, feathered und main.
Tliese are followed by the brilliant
early flowering tulips, hardy narcissus and hyacinths, und tliese in turn
by the gorgeous Inter blooming tulips, the magnificent display of iris,
and beautiful stately lilies of ull
sorts then keep up the supply of
bloom during the greater part ol
the summer.
l'ROl'Klt   SOU.    AMI   I'LANTLN't!.
Bulbs will (lo well in any good garden soli il properly planted, but they
attain Hie highest degree of perfection in light, rich and well-drained
soil. While thoy may be Planted at any
time between September and '.lie time
tlie ground frco7.es, "September and the
oarly part of October is for several
reasons the best time to sot the hulls.
The soil in tlie bulb beds should be
mnde light and fine nnd free from
stones. Large bulbs sliould be set Iuto
the ground with their crowns four
or five inches below the surface,
Smaller bulbs need not be set quite
so deep. See to It in selecting the
bulbs that they are firm and heavy
rather than light and soft. Scoop out
with the bund a litllo bottom for
the bulb, and put lu a Utile sand.
Then set the bulb In and cover without pressing tlie soil down firm and
bard as when setting out plants with
roots already started. Thc bulb
should bo set in the soil, not pressed
Into it. For It is quite us important
to see that the soli is not packed
beneath the bulb as above. When
pressed Into tlie soil this is parked
beneath them, antl when the roots
start they are lifted high up ill the
soil; sometimes nearly out ot it, and
nre liable to be Injured by the frost.
li tho bulbs are allowed to remain In
the ground irom year to year it is
especially Important to plant them
fnr enough apart to allow f ir Increase
ns well us successful cultivation, The
large Illy bulbs should be planted from
six to eight inches deep, according to
the size, and nlioiit fourteen inches
apart. The narcissus, which will soon
form large clumps, should bo set about
ii foot apart and (o|ir Inches deep.
Jonquils, three Inches deep and six
inches apart. Tulips and hyacinths,
about lour inches deep nnd frojn five
tn seven inches apart, Tlie snowdrops,
anemones, crocuses, scillns and other
small bulbs may be planted from one
to three Inches deep and about three
inches fipnrt.
The city flower lover with   only a
smull back yard, shaded by the tell
i houses and high fences ��� Burroundlng,
will doubtless decide that the bulbs
wili not t'irive in such a situation. ).t
Is especially discouraging it the tiny
. yard is entirely paved witli brick, as
: is often the ease. Tliey will thrive in
I these conditions, nnd will nlso live
and bloom and increase year after
.year if the bed is carefully made at
' the start. Remove the bricks to form
a square cc circular bed,, or any shape
or son' desired. Dig up the soil beneath, fully two fret in depth. If the
ground Is packed uod is not well
drained, remove this soli to the depth
of two teet or more- and arrange n
I good drainage by pi.icing in u quantity ot stones, oyster shells, broken
crockery or anything of the sort
convenient. Old bones wilt lie ospee*
Ittlly good, as they will supply fertilizer as well as drainage. Above tliis
drainage material plaee six or ten
iuches of manure or well-fertilized soil
or street sweepings, nnd then the soil
thut was removed from the bed, if it
is siitiiciently light and rich. Then
plant the bulbs with thc tail growing varieties ill the centre and edged
with the crocuses, snowdrops nnd
smull varieties, and that small br.ek
yard will display a surprising transformation next spring.
We must not overestimate the hardiness of some of these bulbous plants.
Though the Dutch bulbs will all do
well without protection, they will do
still better with a covering ot leaves
or other coarse litter, especially during the first winter, to prevent the
bulbs from being injured by successive
thawing nnd freezing. Tlie covering
sliould hot bo placed on the bulb beds
until quito late ill the season, nnd
should not bo removed In the spring
until tlie bulbs begin to push trom tlie

hut it is true, nevertheless, that

and general debility. They drag out
a weary existence, and each day is a
day of pain and suffering. This was
the case with MIsh Annie Patterson,
of Sackvllle, N. B., a lady widely
known in those parts. She was weak
nnd showed symptoms of entering a
decline. She suffered terribly from indigestion and nervousness, Having :
tried practically all sorts of remedies,
and called in the assistance of the
cleverest physicians, and, these doing |
lior no good, she was influenced by |

gun to take on tho health of earliest

she was completely cured. No wonder she is strong In her conviction
that tliere is no remedy like South
American Nervine.
This remedy is a remarkable health
builder; it removes disease, strengthens the nerves, and puts on flesh. Miss
Putterson's case is only one of thousands that have been chronicled in

An early corn planted somewhat
late makes tho best fodder, as it attains tlie right stage lor cutting when
the weatlier begins to cool, and it is
better to commence a Uttle early than
rather late. A1,good time to cut is
when tlie husks turn a little white,
or the grains are welt dented, or the
lower blades aro turning color.
A shredder or fodder cutter will give
moro satisfaction than any other machine on the farm, it will pay its
tirst cost, often, ln one winter. The
advantages are that one can store
livo times as much cut fodder as uncut, and it cuu bo fed more easily and

avoids thc old ubominablo waste.

On tho next rainy day muster your

they miserably perish. Thero must bo

While the lambs are doubling the
flock tlie wool wil] puy for good keeping.
What does the future promise'' Let
it ho borne in mind that for tho last
two years the number ot sheep in the
country has been reduced by many
millions, wliiio the population has increased. Exportation of mutton cur-
casscs has hut Just begun, and Is
certain to grow to groat proportions.
Wool manufacturing establishments
are nearly bare of wool, they having
lived on tho hand to mouth plan.
Sinco wool has been so low people
havo woru more woollen clothing, and
they will be slow to ever go back to
cotton or shoddy.
Of all meats mutton Is least affected with Infectious diseases, ls tlie
most easily digested ot all, and till
over the world peoplo are eating more
of it. Not taking account of the wool,
.miitton can be grown cheaper than
beef. They must pay, or flock masters
would not keep them.
. In some regions the docking ol
-sheep Is becoming abandoned. It is
cruel, harmful and useless. Sheep need
their tails or thoy would not liavo
boon given them. It is claimed that
grub in the head Is caused by Insects,
from which whole flocks die. Now,
the sheep must keep these Insects
awny from Ills nose with his, fore
feet; but wc nre learning.
Littering the pens in which sheep
are housed with burnt clay is practiced in Kngland as a preveative of
foot trouble. The clay,, which acts as
an exorbent for tho excrement,
makes a valuable fertilizer, and one
which is easily handled.
II you expect to grow early lambs
for the market next season, make up
your minds now at what time you
want tlie ewes to lainli, and turn the
buck into the flock accordingly. The
period of gestation runs from 145 to
100 days, and the lambing season
will, therefore, begin in 22 or 23
"With nil the tips and downs In

There Is no small Income from tho

Perhnps tho only remedy worth considering for foot rot ln sheep Is by
cutting off ttio dlsensetl portion of
the hoof, and then rubbing In nitric
acid. The fine wool breeds aro more
subject to this trouble than other
sorts. Keep Infected flocks olt low or
wet lands.
Cut the green oats when in the
dough state, and cure. It for hay. This
makes an almost perfect food for

made. Bear this In mind noxt spring,

Because mitk does not get thick and

which ruin butter quality as thoroughly as sprouting ruins wheat in

When the dairy business is dull, and

Experience ls a better teacher than

samo mistake twice; but tliere are
those who will learn no lessons from

II chicks roost upon narrow perches
before their breasts become firm and
hardened, it Is likely that thoy will
havo crooked breast bones. Therefore, wlille tliey ure young, let them
stick to their boxes, or have a coop
without any poles.
Milk in any form Is good for laying
liens; it contains nil the elements of
egg food in almost the proper proportions ; and no food will make liens

a regular ration of green cut bones.
Then keep them comfortnble nnd

In the variety of farm products
poultry may become a source of income at all seasons of tho year; but,
asido from this, the farmer should
liavo more chickens to save the butchers bills, and to afford him a change
from pork nnd salt ments. We do
not produce enough ; the city markets aro rapidly growing.
Ask the uvcrugo furmer if lie gives
ony time or attention to ids poultry,
antl ho will tell you, no; the women
folks gather the eggs und raise a few
young ones, but thoy do not pay. Of

Alec. Tsreedie gives a pleasant description of "Tlie Highland Freo Kirk,
with Its square pews as hig as rooms,
containing a tablo in the middle, and
tlie walls so high that no one outside
the pew can bo seen except the precentor, tuning fork in hand, in his box,
or tho ' meenlster' in the box nborve.
In the finer churches of Edinburgh nnd
Glasgow," she soys, " thore ore organs ; but in many parts there are
uot oven harmonious."
" At tho Highland kirk the colllo
dogs attend the service, going under
the sent and sleeping peacefully until
the benediction, when they rise, shake
themselvea, und calmly maao ior the
door. Their masters, after the service Is over, enjoy their chat ut tho
porch, for half tho pleasure of coming to church ls to discuss thc sermon
with friends, and havo u hit of gossip
beforo wending their way over the

sometimes to see these shepherds
dressed In top hats, antl thoy, as well
as their women folk, invariably wear
black If they can iilford.it, nnd carry
a small library of Bibles nnd psalm-
books under their arms. Tlielr books
aro very rarely left In the church, this
carrying to ��nd fro appearing' to be
part oi tho ceremony.
"At the kirk door it Is the fashion
to place n small tablo covered with
a white cloth, on whicli stands a
plate, into which every one coming to
tlie service puts a penny or a halfpenny. Silver is almost unknown.
This contribution is strict!** guarded
by two elders ot tho kirk, whose
duties n.re manifold, for tliey really

Tlie Gaelic service is generally irom
eleven to one, and the English from

time on tlie Sabbath ; not only has he
tliese two services right on end, but
lie has to preacli extemporarily, great
indignation being evinced 'at the paper.' Ho has tti read the chapters
t'roui the Bible and the prayers by
himself, as well as giving his sermoa,
a little singing being tho only interlude. In tlie remoter parts of Scotland the congregation still stand up
to pray nnd sit down to sing.
"In some places tliey do not draw
up the blinds, and there Is no sign
of life in the streets, until just before

suys : " In tho silver-using countries,

Many Marvellous Cures Claimed for
the Father."    Tlio New  Mexico re- j stools and sit in lloe. They nre blind
ports indicate that Schlatter claimed j and deal nnd lame.  Persons so very
MnkesNo BoMtfal Olaim at to Uiu Power
to Beal the Ailltetetl���Story of HI* Con*
version While Hi tlio Cobbler',, Bench���
lleitlr, by n Touch.
Three montha ugo, says a 1 leaver J
letter to the New Vork Sun, a story
came Irom Npw Mexico uf astonishing
'curea performed by a strange man
through some agency whicli uono
seemed to comprehend. These stories
were believed by tlie credulous and
scolfed at by tlie intelligent. Day
niter day passed and tiie stories ot
marvelous cures continued to come
from the south. Men from New Mexico of undoubted lnt'grity vouched for
the astonishing cures of various physical ailments, uad peoplo began to
wonder 11 there might not be some
truth ln the stories.
A'few persons so far believed that
the strange man, who claimed to be
the Messiah, was able to perform
miracles that they Ielt their homes
to Journey down to Albuquerque to
"see witli their own eyea if such thiDgs
could be. Among these curious visitors was Edward Fox, a (airly Intelligent busiaess man of 35 years, who
had been an alderman in the town of
Highlands, the part of Denver lying
ver tho Platte.     Fox said ho w..���
Buttering Irom  detective lien ling.  He
to be tne Messiah, the Christ. In
Denver lie has not asserted that. He
preicrs not to discuss the subject.,
" I have no use lor creeds in my
ministrations," he says. " Religious
beliefs, caste and all such matters do
not tiguro with me. I minister to all
alike. My mission Is to euro tho afflicted when the Father directs me,
hut uuless they have talth my efforts
are useless. Tlie greater tlie tnlth
lho quicker they get well. Some have
inure disease than others. It doesn't
cunie in a day and it will not go In
a day. When the Father doesn't
want It they cannot get It. When
he sends it I have It. It all depends
upon what he sends. God ls tlie giver
of nil things. I lmve nothing to do
with theology. I am la one church,
tiie Roman Catholic, and 1 will
stay there, li anybody tries to ar-
guo with mo I have nothing to say.
The Father would not let me road
tlie prophets   two years ago,  but  1
old that life seems ready to flit away
without a lupment's warning stand
side by side with the young and vigorous who show no symptoms ot 111
health. Consumptives with racking
coughs pitiful to hear stand lor hours
in the strong sunlight or in the chill
morning air, their countenances bearing unmistakable signs of hopelessness
and despair. It Is a sight that appeals
to one's sympathies.
Near tlio healer a crowd of spectators cluster all day long, a crowd
which is seldom the same, always
changing, yet always alifte lu the
reverential quiet. Persons tliere talk
In whispers or in a very low tone
while gazing curiously at tho man and
his patients. Tlie men as they give
him their hands lilt their hats and
bow their heads. The women generally gazo Into the face of the healer
in faith, in questioning attitude or
opculy doubtful of liis powers. Everyone carries a handkerchief, which  he
now  know  the reason.  I   could  not i blesses ns be holds their hands   and
witnessea the work ol Schlatter ln
Albuquerque nud, believing ln bim,
took the treatment and returned
home greatly benefited. So pleased
wns he witu tho result of his visit
that he secured a promise from the
healer that sliould ho ever come to
Denver he would accept the hospitality of the Fox home,
Francis Schlatter was born In Alsace-Lorraine thirty years ago of
Gorman parents. He never married.
About two years and a half ago he
was working at tho bench cobbling
shoes iu this city, when, one day
after ho had finished his work, a
voico called to him that a letter written to n friend living on the northern
sido of Long Island would result In
a cure from paralysis, with which
that friend was affected. Schlatter
doubted this voice and did not write.
Again tiio voice admonished him to
write, aad ho believed. Tlie letter
was writ.toa, and In time came a reply
telling of a complete recovery. For
eight months Schlatter continued at
his bench, when tho voice came to
him ng.iln, urging him to go out
and heal the afflicted* Ho closed his
shop and set out.
That Is the story of his conversion,
ns told often by himself In response
to tlie questions of reporters n.nd
others. Since his roappeurnnco in Denver as a divine healer many people
remember him as the "crazy shoemaker," wlio used to live tlio life of a
recluse out on Welton street. To
them he seemed to bo daft upon religious' subjects. Ills first Journey
from here was westward along the
lino ot tho Union Pacific, but the details ol bis Journey nre not known. He
talks little nnd docs not seem Inclined
to give a detailed narrative of his
life. As ho travelled atone and entirely on (out, what happened to hlin
during almost two years Is known
only l>y occasional Incidents related
Iiy him Iu conversation. Iu Juno of
last year he wa.s healing the afflicted
by tho roadside near Throckmorton,
Tex., whoa he was arrested as a vagrant and thrown into Jail, Thc Judge
who  tried his   cuso gavo  hini   three
have understood it then. I have
read very littio of tho toachiags of
men. The only way is to do tbo will
of the Father. I am always happy.
I havo no uso for money. It would
only ho a trouble. When Father wants
mo to have anything I get It. I do
his will. It ls all healing now. I do
not preach. When I pray I repeat
the Lord's prayer.     It ls enough."
Ever since Schlatter appeared beforo the residence of Mr. Fox, on
AVittcr street, two weeks ago, his
manner of treatment has never varied. After tho first day, when tho
crowd appeared ln numbers that fairly astonished Mr. Fox, preparations
to give all an equal chance to reacli
him wero made. A narrow passageway was built or scnntilng so that
only one person at a time could approach the healer, who stood within
tho yard and leaned over the plnin
board fence to reach the applicants
for ids healing power. Tliere he
stands from 9 o'clock until 1- nnd
from 1 to -1 daily, except Sundays,
with no other support than tlio top
o,f oiftiicc post, upon which ho rests
Ills left hand whilo holding tho patient's hand with his right. Ho grasps
tho hands firmly, and generally a
tremor is observed passing over him
until often his cheeka are seen to
shake. As lie holds the patient he
often gazes across tho street or down
tlio waiting line, while his lips move
ntt if in prayer, Sometimes ho gazes
full into tlio faces of ids patients, but
his face at such times has no expression of recognition. Onco a woman
handed him the cap of her .small child
to be blessed. The child cried in fear,
und that made the healer smile
broadly. Looking down at the child
he continued to smile until the cap
hnd been properly blessed, then he adjusted it properly upon the screaming
child nnd turned to tlie next in line,
quite forgetting the Incident.
Somo hands Schlatter holds only a
moment; others ho retains from one
to five or six minutes. To questions
nsked by the patients as ho holds their
hands he gives short replies In a
very low tone. Ho seldom volunteers
a word. When his day's work ends he
turns and disappears into tlie cottage,
walking as briskly ns a strong mnn
can walk, nnd nothing in his actions
Indicates thnt he feels any fatigue
for the long hours of ceaseless handshaking.
d.iffs to leavo town or bo sent to Jail,
lie clioso the former. In Hot Springs,
Ark., ho wa.s confined in Jnll for fivo
months. For his apparent eccentricity the prisoners there "kangarooed"
hini and gave liim fifty lashes. Ho
snys he olten fasted for many days,
once going lor seventy-five days
w.tlioui loid. In New Mexico ho
travelled about the desert country in
bare loot and without a head covering, administering to tho afflicted ln
many obscure places. After attracting considerable public attention in
the re ghborhood of Albuquerque he
fnetod there lor forty days. Tliis last
is well authenticated, and when he
arrived In Denver liis frame showed
plainly its efforts.
Schlatter makes uo boastful claims
as to his power to heal tho afflicted.
He often repeatedly declares that all
his power conies from 'the Father."
"Whence Its Eouree, how long it will
remain, what Its nature may be, he
decUnes to say, but contents himself
With tlie one assertion, "I do as Fa-
w.cr bids mo." To thoso who appeal
to nim tor relief lio replies: "It iu as
tlio 'Father wills. Have faith." To
some I o promises that relief and a
permavint cure will cmno within certain in.u ', days or weeks. To others
he (naked no statements. He takes
no thanks to himaolf, and continues
to repeat without variation: "Thank
On Sundny ho rests. On Sunday lie
attended the service held in tlio Broadway Theatre, wheru Hev, Myron
Reed, formerly pastor of tlio First
Congregational Church, preaches to a
congregation under tlio auspices ol the
Broadway Temple Association, composed of admirers of tho socialistic
clergyman. Ite has gone to a little
Catholic Church in Highlands several
times. In his sermon that Sunday,
Mr. Reed, talking on tlie subject of
"Modern Miracles,'- said of Schlatter:
" I have been much interested the
past week in tlio spectacle ovor the
bridge���In tho peoplo gathered 'together to take the hand of a man
who seems to be absolutely willing to
bo used as G.od pleases. He will not
bo paid and will not bo thanked. lie
says, 'Thank tho Father.' I have
listened to this man. It doos not appear that he chose tho work ; It appears that he was chosen for it.
"Long he argued with himself for
and ugalnst strict olwervuneo to tlie
voico lie heard. It has hot been an
easy path ho has trod from Denver to
tho Pacific and back again, depending
always on what is to liim tlie voice of
" tlie Father.'' This man has walked
across deserts nnd over mountains,
slept In ruin nnd sleet nnd snow, asked
for food when told to ask for It, gone
without when told to go without. I
do not wonder thnt people go to got
help from him. I believe that ho has
observed tlie conditions of power. lie
has taken no care of himself. lie
has dono what lie believes lio wais
told to do. He Is tho only
mau of the kind nnd degree that lever
saw. If people cannot get good from
God through him, I do uot kuow
why. lie has conformed. It Is the
most literal following of Jesus Christ
that I have ever known. It wa.s to
bo expected that ho would be treated
harshly. Somo people hnvo fully met
the expectation. A distinguished
clergyman of this city, who ls apt to
say bright tilings, Is reported to have
Stud that the reason that thc clergy
did not indorse tho man was because
if they did tlie people wonld expect
them to do wli.1t ho Is doing, and they
don't know how."
Tho daily scenes In front of tho Fox
residence on Witter street nro remarkable. A tew feet from the corner of
tlio houso the healer stands at the
lenco. A man stationed at his side
assists in answering questions and nlBO
takes the handkerchiefs ono by one ns
thoy are passed up through the crowd
to be " blessed" by the healer. Outside the fence tho lino of waiting peoplo
in the pnssngoway extends back to
the edgo ol tho runway In single file.
Beyond tho passageway the peoplo
cluster in closely gathered groups,
two, three, four nnd five abreast, and
this string of afflicted extends down
tho whole square and around the other
side of the block, They stand hour
after hour, slowly advancing, but
hundreds tall to reach the healer when
liis time to stop lias come. They come
before   daylight.    They   bring camp
while so doing other handkerchiefs ure
passed up to lie folded with tlio one
given by each patient.
The Sun correspondent hns taken
great pains to verify all statements
made in a recital ol a tew cases,
leaving tho readers to form their own
conclusions. Tho words of the patients must bo taken for what thoy are
worth. Enough has been seen and
known to sntialy anyone that through
this remarkable man many people who
havo undoubtedly suffered huve secured a relief lor which they may well
bo thankful. Whether this relief will
be permanent time alono will tell.
A man owiiiug several business
buildings and wlio lives at tho Mot-
ropolo Hotel decided to try Schlatter's powers for relief from rheumatism. Ashamed to ho thought by
his friends to be doing a foolish net,
ho arose at a o'clock oau morning
aad stood before the residence whero
the healer was sleeping until i)
o'clock, so as to lio treated and away
belore any of his Irieads was tho
wiser. Ho bas not had a touch of
rheumatic paia since.
A newspaper reporter secured a
handkerchief whicli had been "blessed"
hy Schlatter. Ho has consumption,
and the disease in liis case is well
advanced. For eight yenrs ho has
rested badly at night, always awaking several times to cough violently.
Since ho began to wear that handkerchief upon his chest at night ho has
slept without boing onco disturbed by
attacks of coughing. Ho is thankful
for seven successive nights of perfect
comfort and rest���something unknown
in liis case.
A young woman, tho daughter of a
well-known physician, has suffered
for many months with a most annoying fncial eruption which neither
her father nor several other physicians were able >o cure. Sho went
to Schlatter, and alter sleeping a
few nights undor the handkerchief
which had been held by that man
her laco has recovered its normal condition, and Is to-day as smooth as
that of a child.
A boy of ti years, bom with a physical defect, was operated upon by
onu of tlio best surgeons of the city.
The result was tho establishment ot
a weakness most distressing to tho
mother, who tried clinics of medical
schools and many physicians in vain.
All said that only another very distressing operation could bring relief, and a permanent euro wus oven
then doubted. Sho wont to Schlatter, and aftor applying tlio handkerchief to tlio hoy's head all further
troublo censed. The Sun correspondent bus Investigated this caso, and
lias the word of both parents that tlio
boy gives them no more trouble, and
they cnunot be thankful enough for
tlio relief.
A littio fellow suffering with a hip
disease that was gr.adim.lly eating up
both bone and tlssuo   wns  taken  to
Schlatter. His pain was almost    Incessant both night nnd day,  running
sores and diseased flesh and bone hud
defied the science of tiie  physicians.
Since the henler was    visited     tho
child complains of no more pain, his
wounds ure    quickly    healing,     the
flesh hns assumed a  healthy    glow
and appearances indicate a final cure.
This ease is open to   Inspection    at
uny time, and the mother    rejoices
to tell of tho change for the better.
Hero ls a case the  facts of which
lmve all come under the personal observation of tho Sun    correspondent,
nnd every statement cun be vouched
for as true. A maiden    woman     of
probably 85 years, tho daughter  of
a Vermont physician of   highly   cultured   family and superior education,
has been aa Invalid iu Denver for two
years. She was such an Invalid that
her many friends thought  that    relief was    practlcnlly    hopeless.    Her
chief trouble seems to bo the failure
of tho heart to perforin lis [unctions
properly, resulting in most    distressful weakness at times, the  stomnch
absolutely refusing   nourishment, the
eyes failing, arms practically useless,
the   whole  system   very weak.   For
more  thun two years  this    patient
lind not boen ablo, to use her eyes to
rend.   Tho best   occulists of  Chicago
and Denver have studied    her    eyos
again and again, lint nothing brought
strength ol vision sufficient for her to
read. She could not walk uny distance;
climbing stairs  wus a  most   painful
effort; to sloop over nnd  pick    up
anything from tho floon has been for
months nn Impossibility. She had remarkable will power.    She appeared
hopeful enough to the; physicians nnd
her friends, but all treatments alike
failed to restore circulation to a normal condition. For days sho took no
food. A little water would bo taken
without pnln, but tho moment that
a bit of solid food eatered tho stomnch Intense distress followed nnd the
heart ceased to beat for what seemed
a long time. A trained uurso was In
constant attendance upon this patient
and the physician's skill was  taxed
to find a treatment that would benefit her.
On Sept. 25th tho patient consented
tn try the effects of a carrlngo rido
In the sunlight. That dny not a morsel of food had been taken. Assisted
to n.n eosy-rldlng phaeton she snf-
fered no distress on the asphnlt
streets, but as soon as the rough
streets were reached her henrt
ceased to beat properly, ajid her con
dition was most pitiful. In this condition, being near the Fox residence,
it wns suggested thnt she try Schlatter for relet. When the place was
(reached it was evident to the bystanders that the patient was very
ill, and word was quickly passed to
Schlatter, who slipped through tlio
fence and hastened to her Bide. Taking her hands In his he held thciu for
a long time, probably six or eight
"All looked black to me and I saw
no hope. When tie took my hands I
felt that something strange was happening. Suddenly 1 felt a very sharp
pain In my right side, ln a place
where I had never berore experienced
pain. It seemed to culmlnnto thore,
a*ud I funded It Ielt my body nt thnt
point. As the pain went, tiio healer
said 'Thunks be to the Father,' and
dropped my hands. That wns the
las,t troublo I have experienced, and
for six days now I have had no pnln.
To-day I rend tho newspapers for aa
hour without glusscH and without
pain. Yesterday I read a book for
two hours. I walk up and down stnlrs
without effort. Yesterday I walked
a mile with enso. My appetite Immediately returned, and on tho very
day of my cure I cooked with my
own hands a beefstoak and ate plentifully ot It, besides drinklug threo
cups of tea, I eat now with a relish
and am In every way a ncw woman.
I now soe light and happiness ahead
where before all was black with despair. My heart ls boating regularly,
and, though I nm still weak, It Is the
weaknese ol convalescence, and I
know I nm now on the road to health
and strength."
It ean only bo said, In conclusion,
that the many friends of this woman
in Denver listen to her story with
astonishment. They nre bound to believe her, for sho is an unusually in
tclligent woman.
Twice Married, He Wants to be
SO HE CAN CLAIM $10,000.
To.o_t) despatch says: It. Shaw, up
peared of his own free will yesterday
morning before Judge McDougullund
pleaded guilty to a charge of bigamy.
Tlio case is a peculiar oue. Shaw
Is tlio sou of tbo lato George Shaw,
wholesale     grucer.    Hugh was   tbe
younger sou of tho merchaat, and was
rather wild in his youth. His father
turned liim out of doors and cast him
adrift when be was about 12 years of
ugo, lavishing all his wealth and ut-
teuiton on nis other son, Dr. Shaw,
wlio subsequently died. Hugh travelled, and had many ii'w ami dowus. The
business    instincts    were atroug     iu
him, aud ho was abl* to livo and earn
thrue meals a day. At ono time   lie
drove an express wagon, at another
lime hu was running a Chinese laundry.   When eighteen years of agu ho
drifted to Winnipeg. This wus in 1882,
ln tho palmy days when evorything
in tho    western    city  was booming.
At  liis   boarding  houso   thero    also
roomed a handsome young woman ol
tweuty-four,    Miss Louiaa Hall, aud
the two    became too  Intimate. Oue
night a man drove up in a buggy aud
coolly informed Shaw that he would
liavo to marry Miss Hall, as he had
boon lndlscrcot witli ner. Ilo    drove
Shaw off to a clergyman's aud the
youth of    eighteen ami tho dashing
young    woniuu ot twenty-five    were
married. Next day Shaw disappeared.
Ho subsequently turned up ln Toronto,
and started a grocery store Iu East
Toronto. This    was in 1SS8. .  While
hero he mot a young girl named Jessie
McCutchcon,   and   having   lost track
of Ids first wifo, and believing that
sho was dead, lie married Miss     Mc-
Cutcheon. Rev. Jnuies Ilroughull performed tho marriage service, and after a short residence ia Toronto tliey
left for Ottawa, whero Shaw started
a grocery    store, ou    Sparks street.
After living    thero for some     time,
wife No. 1 witoto to his father, saying that    she was going to     have
Hugh arrested for bigamy. Mr. Shaw
was    very    much alarmed, and     ln
company    with Airs. Shaw wont to
Ottawa,    whore they had a stormy
interview witli their son. Thoy said
thut ho would disgrace .them forever
ana othor hard words.    Mr.     Hugh
Shaw throw up Ills hands, and said lie
would quit right there, and he did.
He disappeared again, leaving all the
assets for his creditors, and uot Baying  mueh to his  secoud wife.     She
was left behind to mourn Ids disappearance.   Ho    reached Philadelphia,
and got a situation there.  He paid
up all  Ida debts  and continued     to
livo thore until a few days ago.
Somo timo since his father died, and
made a will In whicli hs left Hugh
lflO.000, on condition that lie squared hiiusol! with society. If lie did not
do so, the money was to go to charity.
Mr. Shaw is hero now after his
money. Ho told his story to Mr.
Wlnglleld, J. p., and ho was committed for trial. A einple of hours
later bo appeared beforo Judge Mc-
Dongall and repeated it. Ho was remanded on his own bail to nppear
beforo tho Judge for sontonco to-day.
His friends aro looking for a reconciliation now with his second wife,
if such a thing ls possible. From
all appearances Mr. Shaw has been
tho victim ol circumstances.

" It was a subject on whicli we needed no advice," replied Philip; "wedo
not repent what we bave done, or,
regard it as a mistake."
" But it i.s a mistake���a fatal mistake," insisted Motley. " You don't
see tlie results as I do. Vou don't look
ahead, as men of business should. You
think ouly of the present. What wus
your object ? To clear yourself of an
imputation made by a set of curs, led

you succeeded In doing that? No.
Have you silenced that confounded

all for tiie sake of appeasing some
conscientious qualms oi the moment.
You have dun.' H wrnng thing, t-hll."
" I dou't think so," said Philip.
Mr. Motley tapped his fat fingers on
tho . tablo, and sat silent and in
thought ior some minutes, then he
said ;
" Mrs. Motley is not likely to let us
have a penny-piece of her money���a
little jade!���not a penny; and without some capital I don't see how we
aro to start again.     Do you?'*
"I havo no Idea of starting again,

Mr. Motley attempted to pooh-pooh
Philip's idea, but he did not seom in
any way astonished by it.
Philip Instructed a lawyer that day
to make Immediate arrangements
ror the dissolution of partnership.
Motley was quite right. No ona expressed any admiration for Harlowe

were sum�� moan enough to suggest
that he had made the restitution irom

On the next day, Wednesday, the
Whip had a spitefully humorous) report 01 the meeting of creditors. It
was prefaced by the editorial remark:
"I predicted that we should get some
curious revelations respecting Mr.
Harlowe. It has come to light that
in -June last, when the ilrm was tottering to Its lail, Mr. Harlowe settled
��16,000 upon his wife, Hitherto 1
have dono this partner au injustice.
1 thought hu was a tool, I made a
mistake. Ho Is nothing of tho kind."
Not a word in tills villainous paper
ol the Harlowe's noble sacrifice���<not
one word.
Vet it wna evident that the writer
was iully aware 0/ all that had taken
place between the meeting and thc
time of going to press, ior prominently
displayed nt tho head of the "Latest
Items of News" was tlio following paragraph :
"(Had Tidings for Creditors���1 have

for they know Mr. Motley's character
Hufficlently well to feel assured that
under his untrammeled management,
and minus the drain upon capital

original and flourishing condition, and
all arrears will be paid up. Public
confidence will be completely restored
when the name of Harlowe is removed
from the brass plate on the doors of
305   Thrograorton    street���and    the
sooner the better."
That here and there may be found
persons sordid and base enough to
write such stuff for their own ends,
one -can understand; but It is to me
Inconceivable that In this age of clv-
iliiatinn nnd culture, renders with debased tendencies are sufficiently numerous to support such writers.
I had hardly the patience to be civil
to Mr. Thornton when we met; and J
could not take any Interest In the
sugestions he made respecting tho details or the new opera. My silence
nainoyed him, ror he was a most Irritable man; and catching up the score
he sold, turning to the manager:
"Of course, my work will bo done
for if Mr. Holderness is hostile."
"If you think that," I replied, "you
had better arrange with Mr. Carr (the
manager) for another conductor, for I
must tell you candidly, Mr. Thornton,
that I have the greatest dislike for
you personally."
Mr. Carr reconciled us���seldom is a

quarrel or Jealousy arising betweeu

said that I Tvould do my best for the
piece; and so I did. Nevertheless, to
my great satisfaction, the thing was
a. complete failure.
Mrs. Motley was in the stalls, and
Mr. Thornton sat beside her during
the first part of the act, but towards
tho end he left her, and went round
behind tlie scenes la ca.se there might
baa call lor him. I saw hlui standing
at the wing with bis hat in bis band,
lingering his mustache nervously���it
waa his lirst work���as the closing
lines were sung. Ills friends in the
theatre called out "Author," and I
signalled for hini to come forward;
but at tlie cry the critics and unbiased
audience began to hiss, and continued
to hiss louder and louder( until the
friends wero silenced. I caught a
glimpse of him when I left tho orchestra, as he wns leaving tho stalls with
Mrs. Motley's bond on his arm- and hie
ghastly pallor, and the look of shame
and humiliation on his face, reminded
me of poor Philip oa tiie evening lie
returned from the creditors* meeting.
"Ah, ah I" thought I, "it is your
turn to suffer.*'
Thero was more hissing at the end
of the second act, and the friends,
dared not call "Author.'* In Itho
middlo of Hie third act many people
got up and left tho house.
My satisfaction waa even greater
next morning, when I read tho newspaper notices. A31 condemned the
book, wliile praising the music. Ono
said, " the libretto Is not wanting In
stilln 'ss ; all that ia needed Is a little
business to ronder It. worthy of a
place In the comic scenes of a pantomime.'' Another spoke of the literary part of the production being "iu-
anj chatter turning into Irritating
doggerel"; a third said It was "dullness robbed of respoctabi.ilty" (a
definition which I heartily admired.);
and a fourth observed that the opera
bouffe needed excision, nnd added that
if the whalo of the first and third
acts were cut out, and the second
was re-writ ten by a competent writer, the management might keep it In
the bill. Kvery one had a joke to
crack over the unlucky performance.
I do not think it deserved such harsh
treatment, but Mr. Thornton had
earned the dislike of the press by the
Insolence and bad taste witli which
he assailed everybody nnd everything
in the pages of the Whip. It was
retribution*. ��
The partnership between Philip and
Mr. Motley was dissolved!.
" I see no way out of it, Phil,' said
Mr. Motley; " if I did, you may be
sure I should oppose sueh a course.
One advantage you get by it���your
personal property will not be sojjl up
to pay tho debts of the firm."
But there were other debts besides
those of  tho firm.     I found     poor

! fore her, making an addition  of her
1 past extravagance.
|    "I am putting down    what  Philip

! bitterly.   '* It Is ail my fault.*'     And
\ then In honrtbrokon tones she cried,

[ turned away, and covering her face
with her hands, burst into toars. She

I    " You can give me   Home practical

i when we met and wero alone.     " Wu
must get away as soon as possit.l.**."
I    I had expected this.     It seemed to
me that the bost thing they could do
j would be to leave London for a lime.
I    " I am afraid I can bu of little ser-
i vice to you, Philip," I repliod, " for I
j have never been out of llngjnnd,"
I    "Oh, wo are not going out of tho
I country,'��� he   exclaimed ; " we   can't
afford to do that with n31 tlio world
against 'us.''
To be sure, that would havo 8eemed
cowardly.   A man of his spirit could
not tako tho course which one of my
kind, for examplo, would have chosen.
I    " We ehnll stay here with our backs

pursued.     " But you live in lodgings,
and   I   thought you could tell     me

I promised I woufld look about,
and in a few days I found a suite of
three rooms, witb a small box-room on
one sido that might serve as a kitchen, on the top floor of a new house
ln Bedford street. The rooms were
light and lofty, freshly papered and
painted, and gay with a glimpse of
Covent Gurden Market down a side
street. But the price was high ; ��30
a year. Nevertheless they seemad
the most suitable ln all respects of
ail that I saw, and off I went to
tell Philip.
" Thirty pounds a year ? why,
that's nothing I" cried Philip,' who
bad not yet learned the real value
of money. He seemed to think they
could not bo good for that price.
However, when he and Madge saw
them they were quite content. Indeed, Mudge was delighted, and her
face sparkled wtth some of its old
animation as she arranged where
Philip's chair should be and Philip's
bonk case, nnd Philip's desk. Her
husband's comfort was uppermost In
her mind, and took precedence In all
help him. What could be done with
a gentleman by birth and education,
who (had been In receipt of un unlimited Income? I can understand
the feelings of employers who wanted useful servants at a salary of between eighty and a hundred pounds

so, but it certainly gave him a more

was the main thing.

j No one would nave guessed  by    hor;
; demc-iuor  ffuat  he   had   lust  all   his j
j fortune, and been  accused of  niean-

1     It was  the  same  when  they   went j
I out in open places.     She did not care ���
I to go on the Embaukmont ur through '
streots where ho was nut likely    to
be recognized; she preferred to walk!

and was Just    as    proud to  lie seen

Philip was nut a fool. He saw tho
necessity ol speedily finding some remunerative employment of h'is time.
He advertised for a Secretaryship.
Kvery day he read through tbe advertisement sheet of the Times, marked
those that seemed suitable, and
made personal application for the
situations. He received not one answer to his advertisements, and his
personal applications were as fruitless. His manner and appearance was
greatly in his favor, and obtained
for him more consideration than was
given to most applicants, But ids
antecedents were all against him.
Those wbo were most kindly disposed towards him could do   nothing to
shabby, the wall paper was dull and
ugly- the bare and smoke-dried
l>0Ugh8 of the trees in the fore-court
and thc miserable sooty evergreens
were worse than nothing; the wind
When in the bad quarter, blew the
smoke from the potteries down In an
acrid Cloud���especially unpleasant
when tbey were "salting* on Thursdays arid Friday***. But they mnde
the best nf it by keeping the windows
dosed, and lighting the gas early ;
and Madge kept in n prominent place
two hyacinth** Which 1 had the ploas-
ur.; Of giving her.
Still it was very depressing with so
mueh bad weather and smoke; and f
can understand that to people unseed to Lambeth, the cats In the
empty gardens behind the houses, the
strvct-orguns In front, tho screaming hucksters and stall keepert* In Lambeth Walk, with tlie frequent odor of
herrings and bacon waiting up from
the kitchens on tho right and le.t, conveyed n, very unpleasant impression of
squalor. Indeed, it surprised me sometimes to see how bravely my Iriend
bore up under adversity.
"It is no good deceiving ourselves
with false expectations," said Philip
to me; "there ore hard times bofore
us ; they will be more dl ficult to meet
ir wo are unprepared. Heaven grant
that we have no greater hardships
than that of living in the Lambeth
Hitherto Philip had worn a fine mustache with a rather aristocratic twist
in It.   One morning, to Madge's great
take what 1 can get, and look out
for better at the same time."
Thc next morning he put on a colored shirt and the oldest suit ho had,
and presented himself in the office of
one of the large potteries. A clerk
came forward obsequiously���fof despite his beard and dress, he looked
every inch a gentleman, and uot a bit
like a laborer.
"1 want employment," PhKlp began.
"Oh, you will have to go to the art
department���fc'ou are  an  artist?"
"No. 1 know nothing at all about
"Ah ! you want something In the office ?"
"No, I want employment for my
Puzzled by this strange application,
the clerk went into an Inner office,
with an nmused expression on his face.
Presently an elderly gentleman with
white hair came out, and after looking steadily at Philip through his
gold-rlmmed glasses far a moment, or
two, said;
"What is it you want, sir?"   .
Philip stated his case brie.ly. The
gentleman listened with grave attention, and then, iu a kindly lone, said :
"In a large luetory like o*JL*s we con
generally find place fora capable and
willing hand, bat I cannot see how to
employ you. A certain amount of technical knowledge and skill is required
in every department. A man cannot
pack, cannot carry a board of ginger-
beer bottles irom tho bench- to tho
kiln, cannot brick up a lire-hole, cannot even carry clay from the barge
to the works, without experience. The
hands begin as apprentices. If I were
to employ you in any capacity, 1
should do so to the prejudice of men
who havo bought their position. That
would be un.air; besides which, 1
should subject you to tiie ill-treatment
of Jealous workmen, and certain humiliation. It is harder to re.use work
than to give it; but in your own interest what would you have me do ?"
Philip could only thank the old gentleman for his consideration, and then
he withdrew.
He tried a smaller pottery, where he
thought tbe proprietor might be a little less considerate aud conscientious.
"What kin ye do V" asked the master potter, a short maa with a pockmarked face. "Kin ye drive a van and
groom a horse?"
"I have never groomed a liorse,"
Philip began.
"Kin ye tum a gnliun��Jar ?" the potter interrupted.
"Kin ye drive a engine 7"
"Kin ye stoke a kiln?"
"Then you ain't no good to me, not a
Philip spent the rest of the week
seeking laborer's work, and found it as
difficult to get what ha wanted In
that direction as in higher occupation.
His courage began to give way before
theso persistent reverses. He could
nut hide the despair that was preying
on his mind from Madge ; and her tenderness- her disguised solicitude, the
furtive means she took to comfort
him, could not lessen his sufferings,
nor abate liis anxlctiy.
On Monday lie renewed his search.
Passing down Kennington Road- he
frame upon a knot 01 idlers belore a
ladder-maker's and t;mher-ynrd. A
Workman With ti bag 01 tools over his
shoulder was tucking up one corner
of his apron, and shouting down the
-yard at the same time.
"I'm a carpenter, not a hodd-Job

Key, 'I:. Sutherla'i&'icoupied the chair.
In opening tlie meeting the chairman
si.ned thai he was always in sympathy
wiih working men, ancl believed in
unions. Without union flicre could lie
no society, no church. He believed in
unions for a good purpose but not to invade the righis of others. It was Sunday aod this was not what would be called a religious meeting, but any work for
llu* beneM pf humanity was in a sense a
religious work. He would, however
prefer to have had lhe meeting on a
week day, bill 0 seemed a necessity tt>
have it on S-indav or not at all. Could
it have been held on any lather day he
would not have approved of ils being
held then.
Mr. Ralph Smith upon being introduced was received with cheer*-. He
spoke, with vigor g'vlng his views of
trades'unionism. He did not ".prove of
the past of unionism on this island. Mis*
bikes had been made, but all, having
equally .1 voice in thc conduct of affairs
should manfully shoulder their share of
responsibility and not throw it upon a
few. As individual* acting alone they
were powerless, but bv union tbey would
he thought, be enabled to obtain lheir
full rights. It may noi have been sn in
the puRt, but surely now in this latter
put of 19th century every right onght to
be obtained hy reason -ind conciliation.
He would not favor a strike except as a
last resort when every other means had

then left including the representative of
this paper. It is learned, unofficially
th it among those remaining an organisation was effected. How many members
it included we have nol learned.
In connection with Mr. Smith's declared
position on strikes we publish 'he following from lhe annual report ol' Carroll I.).
Wright, the U. S. National Commissioner of Labor: "During the period ot the
past seven and a half yoars there "were
10,488 strikes, which threw out of employment 2,391,203 persons; and 3853
lockouts in anticipation ot sirikes, which
threw 205,867 employees out of work.
Fifty six percent of the strikes occurred
in 26 cities, and in these the loss was
$64,000,000 of which 535.000.000 fell upon ihc workmen in the shape of lost wage1-, while $29,000,006 fell upon the employers. In the same chics lhe looses
involved by lockouts amounted to 5iH-
060,001, $1*2,0011,000 of which fell upon
the workmen, and $6,000,000 on thc employers.''
