that Only Union Labor Be.
EMTLOYERS EX FUSE DEMANDS
A eontrorersy la in process be
tween union bricklayers and other
members of the building trades In
Omaha and employers of labor.
The union bricklayer want 7S
rents an honr beginning with May 1,
while the contractors want to !
them 75 cents beginning July 1. They
are getting 70 cents an hour now.
Allle tiM Conffrnrf.
Thre is also anothsr issue. Five trsde
l.nlons in thn city have orgsntsed the
"Alllsd Bullrtlna Tre1rs' conference."
They sre the brick Is yers, r'sstsrers, atone
cutters, eerpentrfs and holstlne- and port
able engineers. Trier demand that con
tractors employ only union labor In thssa
In a letter'slgnrrl by David Cotitts, sec
retary of 'the conference, the Builders'
exchsnre and tbe Real Estate exchange
have been notified of this ruling and have
been esked to take cognisance of It to
save themselves Inconvenience and em
barrassment. The Omaha Real Ertate exchange a
week ago laid the matter on the table.
The Builders' exchange still has this
letter on file. , ,
llblsttna r:ntl'" I
Builders and contractors object to the
demand that union lit-latln engineers
must be employed. They maintain that
almost anyone with a few hours of prac
tice can run a hoisting engine on a build
ing Job. and that there ts no occasion for
clssslfying this Job as highly skilled
labor to be graded on a union scale. The
scale tbe conference Is attempting to fix
for these hoisting engineers Is M cents an
fit the Builders' exchange has asked
the allied conference to drop this request
With this condition they have offered
to give the bricklayers 16 cents an hour
tglntring with July 1. The bricklayers
Jiave not yet accepted the proposition.
If they do not accept It and the build
era do not agree to their -terms of the 75
cents an hour unconditionally, s strike
Is said to be imminent.

to think of the large number of colored

with their more fortunate brothers and

In the school we teach the agriculture

there Is always a good demand for our
graduates. Many of them after gradua
tion buy farms anj engage an business
for themselves, whle others are employed
in demonstration work. All through ths
sgrf cultural sections, particularly In the
south, you will find our boys' giving in
structions snd teaching the farmers the
modern methods of carrying on tho fti'ms.
"Our course up to the time of com

science of farming Is very similar to
that of the grade school. ,. After that It

regular grade work, implementing this
with a knowledge of domestic, economy

The American men snd women must
guard constantly -against Kidney trouble,
because we eat too much and all our food
Is rich. Our blood Is filled with urks
acid which the kidneys strive to filter
out, they weaken from ovrwork, become
sluggish; the elimlnatlve ussues clog and
the result is kidney trouble, bladder
weakness and a general decline In health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps of
lead; . your bsck hurts or the urine Is
cloudy, full of sediment or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three times
during the night; If you suffer with sick
headache "or dlxsy. nervous spells, acid
stomach, or you have rheumatism when
the weather Is bad, get from your phar

take a tableepoonful In a glass of water
