of the biggest giant.
As Dorothy gazed upon this tn won

and looked at her sharply and steadily.
Then the mouth moved, and Dorothy
heard a voice say:
"I am Oz, the Groat and Terrible.
Who are you, and why do you seek
It was not such an awful voice as
she had expected to come from the
big head; so she took courage and an
swered: "I am Dorothy, the Small and
Meek. I have come to you for help."1
The eyes looked at her thoughtfully
for a full minute. Then said tho

"Where did you get the mark upon

"That Is where the good Witch of

me good by and sent me to you," said
the girl. , ' '
Again the eyes looked at her sharp
ly, and they saw she was telling the
truth. Then Oz asked:
"What do you wltth me to do?"
"Send me back to Kansas, where my
Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are," she
answered, earnestly. "I don't like your
country, although It Is so beautiful.

The eyes winked three times, and
then they turned up to the celling and
down to the floor and rolled around so
queerly that they seemed to Bee every
part of the room.' And at last they
looked at Dorothy again.
"Why should I do this for you?"
"Because you are strong and I am
weak; because you are a Great Wlz
ard and I am only a helpless little
girl," she answered.
"Out you were strong enough to kill
the wicked Witch of the East,"
"That Just happened," returned
Dorothy, simply; "I could not help it."

' She left Dorothy alone and went
back to the others. These she also
led to rooms, and each one of them
found himself lodged In a very pleas
ant part of the palace. Of course this
politeness was wasted on the Scare
crow; for when he found himself alone
In his room he stood stupidly in one
pot, Just within the doorway, to wait
till morning. It would not rest him
to lie down, and he could not close his
eyes; so he remained all night staring
at a little spider which was weaving
Its web in a corner of the room, Just
as if it were not one of the most won
derful rooms in the world. The Tin
Woodman lay down on his bed from
force of habit, for he remembered
'When he was made of flesh; but not
being able to sleep he passed the night
moving his Joints up and down to
'make sure they kept in good working
order. The Lion would have preferred
!a bed of dried leaves In the forest, and
jdid not like being shut up In a room;
but he had too much sense to let this
fworry him, so he sprang upon the bed
and rolled himself up like a cat and
purred himself asleep In a minute.
; The next morning, after breakfast,
the green maiden came to fetch Dor
othy, and she dressed her In one of
the prettiest gowns made of green
orocaaea satin. Dorothy put on a
green silk apron and tied a green rib
bon around Toto's neck, and they
started for the throne room of the
First they came to a great hall in
which were many ladles and gentle-
men of the court, all dressed In rich
costumes. These people had nothing
to do but talk to each other, but they
always came to wait outside the
throne room every morning, although
they were never permitted to see Oz.
At Dorothy entered they looked at her
curiously, and one of them whispered
"Are you really going to look upon
the face of Oz tho Terrible?"
"Of course," answered the girl, "If
ne will see me.
"Oh, he will see you," said the sol
dier, who had taken her message to
the Wizard, "although he does not
like to have people ask to see him

girl satd to Dorothy:
"That Is the signal. You must go
Into the throne room alone."
She opened a little door and Doro
thy walked boldly through and found
neriel: In a wonderful places It was
a big, round room with a high arched
roof, and the walls and celling and
floor were covered with large emer
alds set closely together. In the ceo.
tr of the roof was a great light, as
bright as the sun, which made the em
eralds sparkle In a wonderful manner.
But what interested Dorothy most
eras the big throne of green marble
that stood in the middle of the room
It was shaped like a chair and spar
kled with goms, as did everything
else. In the center of the chair was
an enormous head, without body to

one must pay for everything be gets.
If you wish me to use my magic power
to send you home again you must do
something for me first. Help me and
I will help you."
"What must I do?" asked the girl.
"Kill the wicked Witch of the
West," answered Oz.
"Dut I cannot!" exclaimed Dorothy,
"You killed the Witch of the East
and you wear the silver shoes, which
bear a powerful charm. There is now
but one Wicked Witch left In all this
land, and when you can tell me she is
dead I will send you back to Kansas
but not before."
The little girl began to weep, she
was so much disappointed; and the
eyes winked again and looked upon
her anxiously, as if the Great Oz felt
that she could help him if she would.
"I never killed anything willingly,"
she sobbed; "and even If I wanted to,
how could I kill the Wicked Witch?
If you, who are Great and Terrible,
cannot kill her yourself, how do you
expect me to do It?"
"I do not know," satd tho head; "but
that Is my answer, and until the
Wicked Witch dies you will not see
your uncle and aunt again. Remember
that the witch Is wicked tremendous
ly wicked and ought to be killed,
isow go, ana do not ask to see me

Sorrowfully Dorothy left the throne
room and went back where the Lion
and the Scarecrow and the Tin Wood
man were waiting to hear what Oz
had said to her.
"There Is no hope for me," she said,
sadly, "for Oz will not send me home
until I have killed the Wicked Witch
of the West; and that I can never do."
Her friends were sorry, but could
do nothing to help her; so she went
to her own room and lay down on the
bed and cried herself to sleep.
The next morning the soldier with
the green whiskers came to the Scare
crow and said:
"Come with me, for Oz has sent for
. So the Scarecrow followed him and
was admitted into the great throne
room, where he sr.w, sitting in the
emerald throne, a most lovely lady,
She was dressed In green silk gauze
and wore upon her flowing green
locks a crown of Jewels. Growing from
her shoulders were wings, gorgeous In
color and so light that they fluttered

When the Scarecrow had bowed, as
prettily as his straw stuffing would let
blm, before this beautiful creature,
she looked upon him sweetly, and
"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible.
"Who are you, and why do you seek
Now the Scarecrow, who had ex
pected to see the great head Dorothy
had told him of, was much astonished;
but he answered her bravely.
"I am only a Scarecrow, stuffed with
straw. Therefore I have no brains,
and I come to you praying that you
will put brains In my head instead of
straw, so that I may become as much
a man as any other in your dominions."
"Why should I do this for you?"
asked the lady.
"because you are wise and power
ful, and no one else can help me," an
swered the Scarecrow.
"I never grant favors without some
return," eald Oz; "but thia much I
will promise: If you will kill for me
the Wicked Witch of the West I will
bestow upon you a great many brains,
and such good brains that you will bo
the wisest man in all the Land of Oz.
"I thought you asked Dorothy to
kill the Witch," said the Scarecrow, in
"So I did. I don't care who kills
her. Dut until she is dead I will not
grant your wish. Now go, and do not
seek me again until you have earned
tho brains you so greatly desire.
The Scarecrow went sorrowfully
back to his friends and told them
what Oz had said; and Dorothy was
surprised to find that the great Wizard
was not a head, as she had seen him,
but a lovely lady.
"All the same," said the Scarecrow,
"sho needs a heart as much as the
On the next morning the soldier
with the green whiskers came to the
Tin Woodman and said:
"Oz has sent for you. Follow me."
So the Tin Woodman followed him
and came to the great throne room.
He did not know whether he would
find Oz a lovely lady or a head, but he
hoped it would be the lovely lady.
"For." he said to himself, "if it Is the
head, I am sure I shall not be given
a heart, since a head has no heart ot
its own and therefore cannot feel for
me. But If it 1b the lovely lady I
shall beg hard for a heart, for all la
dles are themselves said to be kindly
Dut when the Woodman entered the
great throne room he 6aw neither the
head nor the lady, for Oz had taken
the shape of a most terrible beast. It
was nearly as big as an elephant, and
the green throne seemed hardly strong
enough to hold its weight. The beast
had a head like that of a rhinoceros,
only there were five eyes In Its face.
There were five long arms growing
out of its body and it also had five
long, slim legs. Thick, woolly hair
covered every part of It, and a more
dreadful looking monster could not be
imagined. It was fortunate the Tin
woodman had no heart at that mo
ment, for it would have beat loud and
fast from terror. But being only tin,
the Woodman was not at all afraid, al
though he was much disappointed.
"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible,"
spake the beast, in a voice that was
one great roar. "Who are you, and
why do you seek me?"
"I am a Woodman, and made of tin.
Therefore I have no heart, and can
not love. I pray you to give me a
heart that I may be as other men are.
Why should I do this?" demanded
'Because I ask it, and you alone
can grant my request," answered the

VEKY woinun wage-earner should belong to a trade organiza
tion. It is only through organization that anything is ob
tained. In every large community of intelligent working
people a trade union is as legitimate as a savings bank. Capi
talists combine into corporations and trusts to lower expenses
and increase profits and wage-earners combine into unions to
reduce the hours of labor and to raise wages.
Any person, whether capitalist or wage-earner, who does
not protect his business interests by organizing with others
like himself is almost certain to become a loser. The wage-
earner cannot do without the trade union. It is the only hope that he has
of permanently bettering his condition.
Women workers, especially when unorganized, are the most helpless
class in the community, with the exception of the child worker, because
of their inexperience in business life. They can be a great menace to the
community where they work in competition with men, for when unorgan
ized they invariably tend to lower wages.
Women start out in the labor world with the idea that their wage-
earning period will be of short duration. They therefore often accept
lower wages than would a man without considering that by so doing they
are lessening the possibility for that man to marry and support a family
according to the American standard.
Again the large number of women working after marriage is indica
tive of the fact that the competition of organized women with men is so
great that the normal family relation cannot be maintained.

WHAT'S THE USE OF KICKING?
Writer In Eastern Journal Condemns
the Practice, and Asks Above
If kicking would help some It would
be worth while, but It does not On
the contrary, it hinders.
Then why do rational, sensible men
and women indulge in it?
There is a question that Is worthy
of more than a passing thought, for
It relates to human comfort, prosper
ity, and success:
Why do you kick when things do
not go to pleaBe you?
Is It not because you were taught
to do so? Didn't your parents, your
big brothers and sisters, and maybe
the men and women you admired,
grumble and complain, or kick, when
things did not go to suit them, even
when its fault was their own?
And are not your children learning
in the same way from you?
Maybe you had no thought of this
before? Now that your attention has
been called to It, and you have thought
about It, if you do not act accordingly
you will not be doing right, and to
fail to do that which you know to be
right is to sin.
Kicking is, therefore, a sign of Ul-
breedlng, and one that young folks
should take Into account when choos
ing life partners, for a kicker In matri
monial harness loses the race, besides
creating much confusion. Newark

Some one now advocates a muzzle for

almost everything except for the man who

it now. The city folks are building up
some of the finest grades of poultry to be

people think that it was the farmer who
built up the poultry industry. Xot i
Look through the many poultry shows and
you will see that the city folks are ahead
of the farmers. The large cities are full of faney-iwultry breeders.
People came to our doors simply begging for fresh eggs, especially for the
use of invalids and children. The price was no object. Fresh eggs were
needed and not storage eggs.
Still we find people who kick about chickens while clamoring for
fresh eggs. Why don't they use storage eggs? The coming winter will
find these people paying more for eggs than ever. The only way to obtain
the real fresh egg is to raise it.
It costs no more to feed blooded stock than the common stock of
thicken. Hence the great amount of fancy poultry found throughout the
suburbs of the hi" cities.
If people do not agree with their neighbors' views and ideas, why
don't thev move elsewhere? The unmuzzled howler is found all over the

All doctors now agree that the sickroom
should be a sunny one, if possible. It has
been remarked in hospitals that patients
on the sunny side get well quicker than
those on the dark side. Sunlight gives
vigor and life. Of course the window
blinds should be drawn if the patient wish
es for a dark room, as people do in pain,
and in some cases a dark room is necessary,
but these arc the exceptions. In general
a sunny room is a good medicine.
In all families there should be one who
could perform the duties of a nurse. To
do so requires tact and observation. She
must use her eves and remember every detail and, if possible, note them
down in writing, to tell the doctor nil about the patient in his absence.
These are the principal things the nurse should note: First, tempera
ture: second, pulse; third, respiration.
Taking the temperature means ascertaining the exact heat of tho
bodv. This cannot be done by mere feeling with the hand. It must be
done with a clinical thermometer, which ia a very important help in med
ical practice. These thermometers can be purchased of your druggist and
your doctor will instruct as to their use.
The temperature can be taken in various parts of the body, the most
usual being in the mouth or nnnpit. The normal or natural heat of the
body is 08.4 degrees.
