Several things are to be considered in buying an overcoat price, style and
serviceability. Some overcoats are more to sell, others to wear. The chief
difference between a $15 overcoat and a $30 overcoat is the fifteen dollars the
seller. puts in his pocket.

FABLES IN RHYME

But graft lurks in the New York Life.
The Fence j
Once on a time a man of note
who often swelled his chest and
throat, and eave full vent to lusty
speech until he was dubbed "Chaunce
de Peach," stood forth upon the
stump with fears and voice choked
full of sobs and tears, and said: "O,
friends, alas, alacK; the nation's
doomed to ballyhack!
"That Is, to say, 'tis doomed to die
unless the people quickly fly to such

All this he said, and vastly mre,
and on his honor loudly swore that
honest men like him should be set
up to guard sweet liberty. But one
fine day the news reveals some mighty
big insurance steals. And people
chased him to the woods and caught

Once on a time there was a man
who worked a huge financial plan:
a plan to guarantee to men who loved
their wives and children, when they
passed across the great divide, some
for their future would provide. And
then to put the plan In force he took a
rather crooked course.
From poor men's premiums he would
take some 95 per cent to make soft
easy berths with salaries that beat
by several score decrees tho wages
of the men who paid to have provi
sion for wives made; and these soft
berths he took good care that only
his ow.n house should share.
"It Is your duty," he would cry,
"to lay a little substance by that

Work of Organization is Being
Organizer Young and Business
Agent Morris are hustling at a live
ly rate among the teamsters of the
city, and as a result local 440 is
growing at a gratifying rate. At an
open meeting held last Monday even
ing several rousing good talks were
made and great enthusiasm was
shown. Messrs. Quick and Pirn of the
carpenters, and Organizer Young
pointed out the benefits of unionism,
and in response to the invitation sev
eral applications . for membership
were handed in. Refreshments were
served during the evening, consist
ing of lemonade, cigars, apples, etc.
The local Ternsters' Union has
had several har.t lunips during the
last six months. A member who has
received many benefits from the
union, is now knocking on it as hard
as he can, and that, too, when he is
short in his accounts with the union.
The local will give him a little while
longer to get right, and then it will
go after him. The Wageworker may
have something to do with it, too.
Organizer Young expresses him
self as well satisfied with the pro
gress of the work here. He found

AjrGood Supper for the Printer Man
Capital Auxiliary No. 11 to Typo
graphical Union No. 209 Is preparing
another treat. On Wednesday even
ing, November 15 the Auxiliary will
serve supper at their hall in the Bo
hanon block, service being given from
5:30 to 7 o'clock. Following is the
bill of fare:
Veal Loaf Cranberry Sauce
.Baked Pork and Beans
Potato Salad Hot Rolls
Mince Pie Like Mother Made
It is needless to remark that this
supper will be right up to the mark,
and that those who partake thereof
will get their money's worth. This
supper and all you can eat, too
will cost but a quarter. Every printer
in town ought to patronize the Aux
iliary on this occasion.
At 8:30 a well selected short pro
gram will he rendered, and after that
these who desire to dance will have
the opportunity. Good music will be
provided. A cordial invitation is ex
tended to all printers, , their wives,
sisters and sweethearts to be pres
ent, both at the supper and at the
social. In addition, all members of
the Allied Printing Trades, with their
wives and sisters, sweethearts and
friend3 are cordially, invited to at
tend. And the more members of the
Allied Trades that attend the better
the members of the Auxiliary will
like it. Come and get acquainted.
I Owing to a decided decline in point
or attendance at the meetings since
they have been held In the hall, the
ladies voted to go back to the old plan,
that of meeting at the homes of the
members. . . , '
It is with regret that we chronicle
the above fact, as in spite of the exist
ing conditions, our meetings, which
have been held in Bohanan's hall,
have been a success. It is possible
that the attendance would have been
the same had we continued to meet at
the homes for the past six months. At
any rate, the coming committees on
social arrangements may have to do
some tall hustling to secure so good
a place for our social evenings.
It is a pretty good thing to "live in
the present," so we will not begin to
borrow trouble yet, as there is a com
mittee of five who are making plans
this very minute, as It were, to show
the printer man and his friends, a
good time. On next Wednesday night,
November 15, if you have the one
fourth Of a dollar, you can come up
to the hail and fill up on'the good sis
ters' cooking, then spend the evening
and . hear a short . program, perhaps
dance a little ,and rub elbows with
your kind of folk. "Birds of a feather,
flock together." :
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Simmons are
getting wise. They have sold their
home at Thirty-third and T streets
and have bought another home at
Twenty-fifth and . Y streets. Getting
towards "Printer ville;" you know. Al
though we can't quite make the con
nection, we have noticed that with
each additional printer who comes to
this part of town, several feet of ce
ment sidewalk looms up to grace the
once alley-looking streets, i There is
probably some affinity between print
ers and progressiveness.
Two necessary articles, bread and
brooms, can be had with the label on,
for which we are thankful. The
brooms are fairly well sprinkled over
town, one being able to get a union
made broom at almost any grocery
store. The bread can be purchased at

One man that is breeding birds foi

Tonic for Exhibition Fowls.
Whether or not it is profitable tc
feed tonics to fowls at any time may
be doubted, but we know, that some
exhibitors of fowls do feed them these
tonics to keep up their stamina dur
ing their long days - of confinement
while on the road for exhibition pur
poses. There are many combinations
that are made, hut some of them use
the following: Two ounces of carbon
ate of iron, some pulverized gentian
root, ia little black antimony, some
mandrake, ginger, flower of sulphut
and powdered charcoal, with half a
pound of bicarbonate of soda. These
are mixed thoroughly, and one tea
spoonful of the mixture is stirred into
each quart of soft food given the
fowls. We cannot recommend tots
from personal use, but it may be as
valuable as the users think it is.
Fall fertilizing is advisable in
some cases and not in others.
It is not wise to apply it to

in the fall, it should be after all the
leaves have fallen, when the danger
of starting a new growth is past. The
land that has to be used for a vegeta
ble garden should be fertilised in the
fall, so that the ground may be in
shape to receive the crop the first
thing in the spring, and the fertility
will be In shape for the plants to lay
hold of as soon as their roots have
Special Trains for Drunkards.
Railway companies in Liverpool
have found a' certain cure for inso

IDr. ILcoiiliardt 'lwcolntnebt
ward trains for drunkards on the night
of Bank holiday, but to their great
surprise there were no drunkards, and
consequently no special trams were
"The premature publication Of our
intentions," explained the railway offi
cial, "ruined our plans. Regular topers
who before could be relied upon to
travel home drunk have been shamed
into sobriety. The idea of being placed
in a compartment with other drunk
ards disgusted them andk consequently
they resolved to keep sober. I con
sider we have done any amount of
legislation could possibly do."
By a strange oversight, neverthe
ess, the companies failed to provide
special drunkard trains inward, and
the consequence was that many men
of Liverpool returned home after the
