THE MARK of QUALITY.
The "Hall Mark" of Britain stands for purity of mater
ial an excellence of workmanship. The mark "Bradford"
upon clothing stands for as much in the clothes line as the
hall mark of Britain does on articles manufactured from
the precious metals. Whatever there is of good in ready
to wear clothing, "Bradford" Clothing has it.
We are more than pleased to inform our patrons that
we have secured this splendid line of clothing and are
now able to supply them. The quality, the fit, the texture
and the durability are in every garment. Nothing finer in
the ready-to-wear clothing line is put upon the market
anywhere at the low price we are able to offer this "Brad
The prices range from $20 to $25, and within this
small range we are amply able to suit the most fastidious
taste and meet every requirement of the most exacting buyer
Our spring lines of clothing are now complete and
we again call attention to our method of doing business:
We are offering these lines, than which there is nothing
better, at the bargain price others will offer you at the fag
end of the season. We never have so-called bargain sales
whereat the inflated prices of the early season are cut to a
reasonable price at the end, and put out as "bargains."
Right now, at the opening of the season, we have the bar
gains you will find six months later elsewhere. Now you
get first choice. At from $10 to $30 we can supply what
ever your taste demands in the line of clothing. To union
workingmen we again desire to state that we can outfit
you, from head to foot from hat to shoes in union made
If you are not already listed among our friends and
patrons, we cordially invite you to call and see us.
Post tries in every conceivable way
to defeat and to destroy all legitimate
unions of labor. He is without doubt
the most bitter foe of the union move
ment, and yet if every member of the
unions had refrained from using any
of his products he probably would not
be rich enough to buy newspaper
space in which to vilify them. Shoe
Watches For Fraternals.
During the Thanksgiving day session
of the A. F. of L. convention the fra
ternal delegates from Canada were pre
sented with gold watches. The dele
gates are William Brace, member of
parliament and vice president of the
British Miners' union; Benjamin Tur
ner, ex-member of parliament, and R.
P. Pettipeace, from British Columbia.

THE UNION LABEL.
Trade unionists and the
friends of trade unionists should
never forget the union label is
the most potent agency In the
whole realm of organized labor.
There is not existing today a
single abuse of which organized
labor complains that could not '
be stamped out absolutely and
permanently by proper utiliza
tion of the workingmen's trade
mark. The label Is a cure-all. and it
ought not to require any extend
ed argument to convince the lo
cal unionists of this fact.
Moreover, the label stands for
everything for which the A. F.
of L. stands.

What Better Wages Mean. .
"Unfitness means low wages, low
wages mean insufficient food, and in
sufficient food means unfitness for
work, sq that the vicious circle Is com
plete." This is what Rountree calls the
"vicious circle of poverty."
"May we not, however, say con--versely,"
writes Frederick Almy in
the Survey, "that increased income
through better wages means better
food and quarters; these mean better
strength and courage; these so, instead
of an endless chain of poverty, we may
have an endless chain of progress?"
Missed the Carriage.
A little four-and-a-half-year-old when
shown the new baby looked curiously
around the room and said, "Where's
the buggy to It?"
ABOUT PROFIT SHARING.
The trouble with different
plans of profit sharing that are
usually presented is that they
nearly always contain the ele
ment of coercion. In other
words, the workman is not treat
ed as a man who by his labor
that he has given has contrib
uted toward the support and
success of his employer and is
therefore entitled to a moiety in
addition to his daily -wage, but
he is told that in order to re- - 4
ceive this moiety he must con- iy
tinue in the employ of his em-: '
ployer. This means virtually
that he must work at the wage
fixed by the employer and ; turn ; 1 1
off a quality and quantity of '
work fixed by the employer. ; J J
This is not profit sharing. It is 4
a species of slavery under which
the employer seeks to own and j J J
control as his vassal the em- i
ploiyee who is foolish enough
bite at this type of -profit sharsl
