Denny LandrigaiTS Game ROOSter.
Engineer Denny Landrigan is a
peaceful, law-abidiug resident of Al-
, liance, whose social and genial manner
has made him a popular person through-
' out the town. Mrs. Landrigan, too,
shares the popular esteem of her hus
band, but this much cannot be said of
a rooster who presides over Denny's
flock of chickens. In fact, this fowl's
disposition to scrap and keep the featli-
cry tribe of the neighborhood in con
stant turmoil became so aggressive that
it was the talk of the neighborhood and
means to suppress the rooster rows
were debated by the peace-loving resi
dents. The only solution to the affair,
at a secret meeting of Dau Fitzpatrick,
Geo. Dietlcin and Charley Green, was
the unanimous opinion of the trio that
a gamester would have to be secured
that could knock the stuffiu' out of
Denny's dung-hill rooster. According
ly, they sent away and secured a game
ster with a record for scrapping a vard
long. The price paid for the bird was
$15, without express. Alt preparations
were made for the proper extermina
tion of the Landrigan rooster. Last
week, Wednesday, when the engineer
was out ou the road, and the Misses
was away visiting, Fitz, Dictlein and
Green quietly slipped over to the Lan
drigan chicken yard with their game
ster and proceeded to begin the fatal
fight that was to put an end to the
dunghill. No sooner did the gamester
laud in the yard, when the fight was
ou. For an hour or more feathers and
blood flew in profusion and even the
neighboring women were attracted by
the fight, which was furious, and they
threatened to call the police if the cruel
inixup was not immediately stopped,
but the' boys (flight as well try to stop
a cyclone as to put the air ou Denny's
dunghill rooster. He fit and fought to
a finish. After the cloud of feathers
had floated away, and quiet again
reigned, it was discovered that the im
ported gamester was over in the corner
of the yard trying to crawl through tho
fence, while Denny's pet was flapping
its wings and crowing as if Bryan was
elected. Mr. Landrigan tenders the
boys a special invitation to bring their
fighter over for another bout some day
when he is at home.

We aro all interested in good wages, and tho whole nation should,
be interested in the same thing. Any employer who has a heart in him
instead of a stone knows that the more wages he pays the better tho
work he will get. Good wages mean plenty of money to be spent iu
the stores, for rent and in every other direction. For this reason thero
should be UNITED ACTION BETWEEN TILE BUSINESS
MAN AND THE WORKINGMAN. With the trusts controlling
the necessaries of life and continually advancing the cost of living
without a corresponding advance in wages, it i3 time for us to TURN
ON THE LIGHT AND MAKE A FIGHT FOR OUR EXIST
There was a time when a young man become of age who had tho
ambition and desire to select a line of business could enter tho raco
and feel assured of an equal opportunity with his competitors. A
man's success depended upon hi3 honesty, integrity and industry. But
thoso were not the days of giant and heartless monopolies. The rail
road rebate by which trusts killed off competition was not heard of
then. Tho purchase of legislators was' in its infancy, if it oxisted at all.
In fact, thero was a chance then for a young man to strike out and.
make a living for himself.
