The Carpenters and Joiners
To All Members of Local 1055: It is
expected that General Organizer Mich
ler will be here next meeting night,
and that meeting will be a called meet

to be made by him at that time. You

at Carpenters' Hull.

Ross Shepherd was reported on the
sick list the first of the week, but a
later report says he is at work again.
There were four initiations at the
last meeting and one application.
Did you miss Bro. Michler's talk at
the last meeting? It set some of the
boys to thinking, and was one of the
best in point of real brotherly-manliness
that has been heard in Lincoln
for some time. A unanimous vote of
thanks was tendered him.
General President Hubner has sanc
tioned the use of The Wageworker as
a medium for notifying members of
Fred Eissler was elected business

members stand back of him and sup
port the men who "tote fair," and thus
show to the world at large, or at least
this corner of it, that the carpenters
are standing for a "square deal."
Carpenters are in demand, there be
ing practically no idle men at this
In the interests of harmony among
ourselves, as well as among the em
ployers who felt that they could not
stop other building trades, the Satur
day half-holiday was cut out.

man the big job at Capital Beach, stat

the work would ceuse at 12 m. every
Saturday. Mr. Odell believes that a

and business on Saturday, and rests
on Sunday, or what is better, gives his
mind a change in its line of work by
going to church, and really resting by

who puts in Sunday building chicken

little jobs around the house.
If we could set the price of the sack
of flour that, is needed to bake bread
for our families, we might be willing
for the other fellow to set the price on
our labor and skill. Which is the more
reasonable? Think a minute!

think about the fits some people throw

not many a place in town but what I
can make out with these oppery

Tin Horns, Mechanical Tog Horns'
and Other Modern. Con
Tin horns, such as venders bring out)
by the wagon load in the city's streets
on election night, are stock articles of
sale the year around in the stores of
dealers in marine supplies, says the
New York Sun.
Thousands of tin horns, of various
sizes are annually sold to fishermen,
oystermen and men using boats, in many
waters,, in various, pursuit, and. such
horns are sold, as well, for boats used
for pleasure. A big horn of this kind
might be heard a mile.
For larger vessels, such as schooners
sailing in open water and not equipped
with power with which to blow whistles,
there are provided mechanical fog horns
that can be operated by hand, and that
can be heard three or four miles away.
With the multiplication everywhere
within recent years of pleasure craft
there have been introduced still other
sorts of noise makers. One of these is a
bellows horn, with the horn attached
to the top board of a trimly-finished
bellows pf oblong shape, to the top
board of which also is attached a handle.'
This bellows horn can be put down any
where and operated simply by pressure.
Though not as big as the mechanical fog .
-horn it ean be heard'for a considerable
distance. . , : .
A still smaller bellows noise maker
has in place of a horn an air whistle.
Another whistle contrivance has a
small upright metal cylinder in whichj
air is compressed by means of a handle
worked like a plunger. The whistle)
which may be one of a single tone, or
chime. Is attached to .the outside of th
Still another modern noise maker is.
an air-blown whistle with a light con4
trlvance attached. When the whistlo
cord is pulled the light shows as the
whistle blows. Obviously the light at-j
tachment is for use at night to locate the
boat from which the whistle Is blowing.;
While these later sound producers, de
signed more especially for yachts and
launches and tenders and other pleas-.
ure craft, are rather more elaborate;
they are used for precisely the same!
purposes as the old tin horn, namely, to!
give warning in case of fog, for signal
ing In crowded waterways, for blowln;
for landings or for bridges.
How She Always Knew.
All alone on the hilltops lived Han
nah Jano Spriggins, and a lonely life
she led, this ancient maid. Much to
the wonder of the good people of the
village of Medbybemps, she was never
at a loss for news, and when neigh
bors called with stray bits of informa
tion, Hannah Jane always knew it
long before it had been spread broad
cast through the town. ,
"Say, did ye know Sam Whitten's
Anne had a shock?" volunteered an
excited female, dropping in on Hannah
Jane early one evening, just as that
peaceful soul was sipping her nightly
brew of tea.
"Taken at 2 o'clock this afternoon,"
calmly replied that lady, serenely;
"had to send for that know-nothing
crittur of a Dr. Smith, . 'cause Dr.
Brown wasn't home. Got Sam Ketch
urn's Tabitha for a nurse."
"For the land's sake?, Hannah,
how'd ye know it?" gasped the as
tounded caller. "You ain't had time
to go down to the village and back
since it happened." Hannah Jane
shook her head in mysterious fashion.
"You do beat all for getting the news
first," continued the neighbor, with an
injured air. "How in time's sake do
ye manage." Hannah. Jane meditated
a moment, then beckoned to her guest,
who was one of her oldest friends,
and led her in solemn silence up the
winding stairs that led to a turret
chamber at the top of the house. This
room had been made for her father,
and old sea captain of the town, so
that he could watch the vessels as
they sailed into the harbor. .
From an ancient bureau in the cor
ner of the room Hannah drew forth
something wrapped carefully in tissue
paper. "Opery glasses," she explained
briefly, as she took out her treasure
, from the numerous wrappings. "Niece

An Appreciated Performance.
The late Joseph Jefferson used to
say that his career came very near
being nipped in the bud in a small
western town. He at that time was a
member of a small- pioneer company
which, progressed by means of. three
"bull teams" from one mining camp
to another. They were always heartily
received by the miners and cowboys,
who readily paid the $5 In gold re
quired to witness their performance.
Mr. Jefferson was the traditional melo
dramatic villain, and in the third act
was supposed to kidnap "the child."
The supposed mother, hearing its cries,
rushes upon the scene just as he is
about to escape, and fires a fruitless
shot from a revolver.
Upon this particular occasion all had
gone well until this scene was reached,
and the audience, many of,whom had
never before seen any kind of theatri
cal performance, sat as if spellbound.
At the crack of the mother's revolver,
however, the spell was rudely broken.
"By heaven, she missed him!" a
red-shirted miner in the front row
shouted, drawing his own "six-shooter"
and leaping to his feet. "Round to the
back door and head him off 'fore he
can git a hoss, boys!" he yelled, and
following him, half the audience stam
peded for the exit.
The excitement was finally allayed
by the "mother" and the villain's ap
pearing hand in hand before the cur
tain, and the manager's explanation of
the situation. When the performance
had been concluded, the audience in
sisted on paying another admission
price and having an immediate repe
tition from beginning to end.

"Have fathers changed, do you
think?" inquired the old maid stenog
rapher just after lunch, relates the
Chicago Inter Ocean.
"Why?" asked the smart Aleck
bookkeeper. "Does everybody work
but father at your house?"
"Oh," replied the O. M. S., "it i3n't
anything like that, but I eat at one
of those girls' lunch clnbs where you
helj yourself, you know. To-day I
was standing in the middle of the floor
with my tomato soup and caramel ice
cream, wondering where to sit, when
I saw two such sweet, innocent, young
looking things that I couldn't resist
sitting down at the same table vita,
them. I just wanted to hear them '.alki
and to Imagine myself young again.'
"It was hard work, wasn't it?" In
quired the smart Aleck bookkeeper.
"Well," went on the O. M. S tak
ing no notice, "this is the conversa
tion I heard: '
" 'Did you zo to the dance last
" 'Yes, and such a time. I asked
ma if I could go, and she said I could;
if I got in by 12 o'clock, but if I didn't
this would be the very last dance I
should go to. I knew I couldn't get
home by midnight, or anywhere near
it, but I didn't tell ma that. So I went
over and got Lizzie-and we went. We
had the swellest time! And t never
got home until four o'clock in the
morning. I took my shoes off outside
the -door and went in the back way.
But they had changed the. furniture
around, I guess, for I fell over a chair,
the clock struck four, and out come
pa. I said: "Sh, don't tell ma," ancj
pa said: "You just leave it to me.
So what did pa do but turn the clock
back three hours, and then it struck!
one. "What's that noise," , ma hollered,'
"Oh, you're dreaming'," pa says.
"What time i3 it?" says ma. "One
o'clock," pa says. "Is Maggie in?" ma
says. "Sure, she's in," says pa. So
went to bed and pa got iip again and
fixed the clock right and ma never
knew anything about it. I tell you,
pa's' a peach. He always stands by
me like that.' "
"Say, she knows how to work father
all right, all right, don't she?" said"
the bookkeeper, admiringly.
A Buffalo man stopped a newsboy in
New York, saying: "See here, son, I
want to find the Blank national bank
I'll give you half a dollar if you direct
me to it."
With a grin the boy replied: - "AH
right, come along."v And he led the
Buffalo man to a building half a block
The man duly paid the promised fee,
remarking: "That was half a dollar
easily earned, son."

..GILSON'S SORE THROAT CURL.

Germantown, Neb., Feb. S, 1904.
I have had most excellent results
with Gilson's Sore Throat Cure in dis
eases of the throat and mucous lin
ings." I find its application in tonsi
litis and cases where a false rnemr
brane exists in the throat," as in
diphtheria, to have an-immediate ef
fect, loosening and removing the mem
brane, and thereby at once relieving
this distressing sensation of 'smother
ing noted in these cases. My clinical
experience with Gilson's Sore Throat
Cure has proved to me its value and 1
can heartily recommend it to all as a
safe and reliable preparation for tho
disease it is recommended.
