Perhaps you are among those who
believe that gas for cooking and heat

open to conviction, come in and let us
convince you of your error. We can
prove it by the experiences of 6,000
users of gas in Lincoln. We have ev

The prohibition wave has worked
havoc with the clgarmakers' trade
throughout the country. There arc
many union men out of work as a
result While the union cigarmakera
were always in need of the support
and agitation of the members of or
ganized labor, they are much more in
need of that support and agitation at
the present time In order to insure
them work the union label must be
demanded now more than ever, and

FARMERS GET WISE.
Boycott Stores Whose Clerks Are Too
Good to Organize.
The organized farmers down around
Sherman and Denison, Texas, have
given the worklngmen in cities and
towns and cities a fine illustration
of doing things right. The pernicker
ty clerks of Sherman couldn't organ
ize. Oh, dear no! They were not
worklngmen! Didn't they wear white
shirts and creases in their trousers,

and weren't they likely to be eight
dollar clerks today and proprietors of
department stores a week from next
But the hayseeds in the backwoods,
who got the organization fever good
and proper, passed the word along the
line, and when they hitched up to go
to town for the purpose of doing their
trading, and arrived at the forks of
the road the procession instead of go
ing into Sherman drove to Denison,
where there was a retail clerks'' union.
!n other word the union farmers
quietly put a boycott on Sherman for
they wanted to be waited on by union
clerks who had sense enough to organ
ize. It is no credit to the Sherman
clerks to add that, after the merchants
learned why the farmers gave them
the go-by, they compelled their em
ployes to form a union. But perhaps
in the fullness of time the Sherman
clerks will forget their sissy ideas
and learn that they owe something to
the useful people in society who put
up with their boorishness. Erie, Pa.,

WHAT THE LABEL MEANS TO
The label is the life of unionism.
If these manufacturers, who may
be behind the hatters in this strike,
think that they can wipe out the lab
els without a fight, they are wrong.
To fight for the labels is to fight for
the basis of unionism.
A label is a guaranty. It is a guide
to prove that the ware on which it is
Found is of union manufacture.
The label is the very opposite of
the boycott. The boycott says, "Don't
buy." The label says, "Buy, and sup
port this union."
We can't print our boycott lists any
more. It would even be wrong, I sup
pose, to display the old list.
But no one can stop me or anybody
else from telling his friend, that this
or that article of manufacture is un
fair. , ,
I'm going to use my speech in this
way, just as I please. " ,
We must fight for our sixty-four
union labels to the last ditch. Ex.
