You Need a Gas Range
It is even more important to save time these
short days and get the men away to their work on
time, and get the children ready for school. With a
Gas Range you don't have have to get up before
daylight and lug coal and ashes by the light of a Ian
tern. Scratch a match and you are getting breakfast
instead of hunting kindling. Gas is the modern fuel

Their rent is too high, their expenses too heavy.
We sell the famous clothing, made in
New York always the uest quality and latest style, and the

per cent lower than O street prices for the same quality.

FRANCIS SMITH THOMPSON.
President of Order of Railway Teleg
raphers Is Dead.
On November 17th the mortal re
mains of Francis Smith Thompson,
general chairman of the Order of Rail
way Telegraphers, were consigned to
the grave at Auburn, Nebraska, the
home of Mr. Thompson's parents. Mr.
Thompson had his headquarters at Los
Angeles, and had under his direct sup
ervision the affairs of that great organ
ization. He was a thorough union
man and his devotion to the cause
undoubtedly hastened his death. Three
weeks ago he was called to the gulf
country by reason of members of his
order becoming involved in the strike
of the Railway Clerks. He made a
successful fight for the reinstatement
of the locked out men, but his long
struggle exhausted his strength. As
he left the hall he succumbed to ex
haustion. Immediately friends, took
him in charge and started with him
for his home. At El Paso his condi
tion was so alarming that he was
taken from the train to a local hos:
pital, but in spite of all care he soon
answered to the call of the grim
In accordance with his dying wish
he was buried at the home of his
childhood, where he had learned his
profession and where he had started
out in life for himself. The funeral
was held at the Christian church and
was attended by a large' number of
friends and relatives.

"OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM."
Richard L. Metcalfe, associate edi
tor of the Commoner and one of the
best known newspaper men in the
country, is about to publish in book
form a collection of his special ar
ticles which have appeared in the
Commoner and other papers during
the past few years. These selections
are wholly non-political, but are of
a tender heart interest that will ap
peal to all classes. The editor of The
Vageworker has worked by the side
of "Met" for nearly sixteen years," and
he i3 glad to recommend this book,
which will bear the title, "Of Such Is
the Kingdom." Every story is a gem,
and no man or woman can read them
without being made better.

The latest report from the Santa

of that road have refused the request

Enterprising Merchants are Taking
Advantage of Their Opportunity.
The really enterprising merchants oL
Lincoln are taking advantage of the
opportunity afforded by the proposed
Union Labor Fair to show their goods
and thus get them well before the
men and women who furnish the sin
ews of business in this town. The
following merchants have fallen into

proposition and will doubtless seize

Some enterprising manufacturer of
cigars ought to jump at this oppor
tunity to make a great hit. A "live
exhibit" would attract more attention
than almost anything else. Not one
man or woman in 500 has ever seen
a cigar made, and an exhibition of
making cigars would draw like a mus

A GOOD IDEA.
The Spokane Central Labor Union
will' hereafter hold open meetings the
first Monday of each month, when ed
ucators, pastors and public ' men will
be invited to express their views on
organized labor, whether they be favor
able or unfavorable, and speakers will
also be present to tell of the benefits of
organization. In addition to the regu
lar transaction of business the speak
ers, may make addresses on live labor
topics and it is believed that in this
way greater interest in the labor move
ment will be awakened and at the
same time erroneous ideas of the pur
poses of labor bodies may be eradi

A LABEL LEAGUE BOOST.
The Women's Label league of Spo
kane has hit upon a new policy for in
creasing the membership of that or
ganization and the new plan is ex
pected to,be a great success.
Heretofore it has been the custom
of the league to hold a social meeting
on the last Saturday of every month,
all members of organized labor being
iuvlted to attend. At the last meet
ing it was decided that hereafter the
a:embers of only two unions, selected
in, rotation by alphabetical order,
should be invited to'attend. Delegates
of the league will attend the meetings
of the unions to proffer the invitation
and to urge that all members bring
