aririHfarijfQK r , -7ir" r "- -aar-jft-' -j- HOW THE AVERAGE LOAN SHARK DOES BUSINESS The loan shark parasite flourishes openly in the city of Chicago. And their operations are assisted by the local newspapers, who publish advertisements of their piratical business. Numerous people who have been bilked report their cases to the Legal Aid society, and ask for assistance in settling their debts. The following story of misery dealt by these loan companies is not unusual, Taut seldpm do they get before the public. It is a -tale of how a loan shark for 15 years continued to collect from a woman on a debt of $25, until he had succeeded in wringing from her morel than $500. His extortion was only stopped by his own death, and when his son attempted to continue the collections the. woman called in the Legal Aid society. And the society, through threats of prosecution, compelled the son to drop the note. In 1896 John H. Murphy, jr., bought a suit of clothes. He was then 21. His father was an...

Kis mother. Joseph listened for a tinie, and the cause of his mother's years of worry dawned on him. Joseph descendecLon the shark's son with the intention to make a different variety of mark than that his mother had been making in renewing the note. But the shark's son fled. Then the whole story came out. Mrs. W. E. Boyes, superintendent of the Legal Aid society, and Guy M. Blake, the society's attorney, acted. They threatened the shark with prosecution if the note was not canceled. The son canceled the note. That ended the case. But no prosecution that could have' been brought would have compensated Mrs. Murphy for the years of agony, worry and trial she endured", or the deceit she was forced to practice on her husband and son. And all for a suit of clothes that cost $25 originally but . in the -end amounted to more than $500. These vultures should be stopped, as ruthlessly as one would trample on a snake. But it is hard to do when the people do not hear of the cases, and do not k...

w $ a The wife has told you when to feed the youngest and has left the milk. About feeding time tootsium wakes up and tells you all about it. Warm up the milk and stick the nipple in' the kid's mouth. Maybe it will chew on it and get nothing. Shake the bottle to see if the milk flows; if it does not, get a needle and open up the holes. If it still doesn't work, try-a toothpick, and if under no circumstances can you get that apparatus to perform, then feed the 'nfant, with a.t spoon until it gets he full supply coming to it. Otherwise you'll have no peace until mother returns. Leave babies-alone until they holler, unless it is past feeding time. If the baby isn't hungry or thirsty, or wet, or cold, or too .hot, thenJt probably has a touch of colic, especially if you let it gulp the milk down too fast. Take it up, put its head over your shoulder and pat its back. If that doesn't bring up the surplus air try a dose of peppermint essence in an ounce of real warm water. Then get the baby...

' TW K'''mi tr OF INTEREST TO LABOR By Max Hayes. 'A threatened national suspension of work by members of the Miners' Federation is of ever 'graver concern in Great Britain. For many months the miners have endeavored to secure an advance in wages and enforce a standard rate In order that one district cannot be played against another and thus force wages downward through .competition. The men's efforts had proved unavailing and several weeks ago a 'national conference was' held at Southport, the delegates coming to the gathering with instructions. Conferences are being held with operators in the various districts, but the employers are stubbornly refusing to grant an increase in "wages and concede a standard srate, and the likelihood is that the "London congress of miners will "have no alternative but to prepare for a strike in, -which about 600,000 men will be involved. As the Welsh miners are. tied up 'with a contract that requires 30 days' notice before it can be abrogated, the ge...

E MASCULINE HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD SUGGESTIONS TTTTTTTFTTT INDIGESTION By W. C. Cotton, M. D. ffiw. m EKsubE$&amp;S5Bk&amp; In most cases indigestion is attributed to improper eating rather than to improper food. The most easily digestible food may cause indigestion if bolted hog fashion, while food that is slow of digestion may be- easily taken care of ,if eaten slowly and in moderation. The prime rule for those who would avoid or would be cured of indigestion may be expressed in one wofd: "CHEW." Chew your food till there's nohting left of it to chew. More depends on thorough mastication than on anything else. If-' you haven't time to chew, don't eat. Never eat a "square meal" un- less you have at least half an hour to devote to it Better go hungry tiflyou have time to eat at leisure, or, better still, drink a glass of milk to bolster you up till there is time to eat. If you' have brain work to do, eat very lightly before work as otherwise you are apt to become drow...

Up to -the last moment I have been hopping that I possessed some flaw which would make it impossible for any housebreaker to use me, 'but my hopes have been dashed. ' I was purchased this morning by a rather good-looking youth, who, however, had evidently been up -against the worldgood and hard. "I you know whatf I want,"'he said to the man who made me, a villainous old man. "1 this is imy first attempt at anything" of -this sort and I I don't know exactly what I want."

WF WHOLESALE ROBBERY OF WORKERS JUST PLAIN, RAW LARCENY CAUSE OF BIG BUTTON STRIKE Does This Sort of Thing Breed Hate and Incite to Violence? t ti I IH l H r V By E. C. Rodgers. Muscatine, la., Dec. 7. Sixtyfive per cent of all the pearl buttons used in America are made in Muscatine. Eight factories. 3,000 men, women and children. But did you know also, that most of the Muscatine pearl buttons on your shirt, or-shirtwaist, were made, by native born American men and women who got absolutely nothing for the labor of making them? The manufacturers pay a cent to a cent and a half a pound for the mussel shells. A pound will make many buttons. The shells soak a week or two, while the bodies of the mussel inside rots away. Then machines cut many little round button blanks from each shell. The cutters who operate these machines have their hands in and out of this fetid, vile-smelling "water all day. They get $7to $10 a week also they get "shell poisoning" a scurvy-like disease resulting fro...

After the blanks are cut they go through the processes of grinding, drilling," polishing and carding. The grinder got nothing for grinding "bad" buttons, the machine girl got nothing for drilling the holes hxthem, the polisher got nothing for polishing them, the sorter got nothing for sorting them. Yet and one of these girls would have been fired on the spot for refusing to handle them. Only the woman or child under 14 working at home, who sewed them on a card for 4 cents a gross, got paid for hjfndling "bad" buttons. Oh, yes; ttiei manufacturer gets paid for every dozen of them he sells, you may be sure! The girls averaged $6 a week. Some got only $3 aside from tuberculosis and things like that, through working in the shell dust which cuts the lungs like knives. They become, in time, weak.lunged mothers of weak-lunged children.
