mmmmmmm In -other words, the dam that stands between our society and the hell that follows when chastity gives way, is feeling the pressure. One girl worked for wages so low that, save as she would, try as she might, she could not buy a new pair of shoes She worked for six dollars a week. Of this she spent two dollars for a room, three dollars for board and sixty cents for car fare. The odd 'forty cents could not be made-to keep her poor feet from the pavements, and with a body to sell, her chastity could not stand the strain. O, men who hire our girls, and women who consent to live in a society that endures these things, how long do you expect this, your precious society to live under it? How long, before the people will ask themselves what society is -worth which-takes the Brunhildes and gives back diseased drabs? And nevef doubt that question is asked in manyyaKome this very day. How will you answer it? FEMININE OFNTHE SPECIES V KCu' war arr S rou oar jupprtf jry& m&a...

XABOR ORGANIZATIONS WANT LABOR TEMPLE Yesterday's disastrous -fire in the Open Board of Trade building, which wiped out the headquarters of a" score of labor organizations, forcing them to seek .. temporary offices in widely scattered buildings, has revived the agitation among union men for a labor temple, in which all the labor organizations could be housed. Among several labor leaders to whom the subject was broached the consensus of opinion wap that now was a favorable time for pushing the project with renewed activity. At various times in the past the idea of a labor building? allowing the centralizing of the union offices under one roof, has been spasmodically discussed, but no. definite decision has been arrived at. Advocates of the plan argue that the unions, all in one .building,) would be like a big family, and communication between the different organizations would be simplified. Practically the entire upper floors of the Board of Trade building were occupied by labor head...

ready Had been ruled upon wh'en demurrer filed by the packers on the same ground was presented some time ago. And, second, the government has a right to produce all evidence along the line of what the packers were doing three years agoj in order to show motive. This point settled this forenoon a recess was taken, and George Buckingham though up the things he would tell the jury about the beneficence of the packers. When court again went into session, Buckingham began. He first vehemently very vehemently denied that the packers were in dny way responsible for the high cost of living. "The increase in food price," he asserted, "has been due solely to the retail distribution of the staples. That distribution is unscientific and uneconomic. These defendants have had nothing to 'do with the increase in the" cost of steaks." - Then he denied that the packers had "unreasonably" interfered with commerce. "He read extracts from the Supreme- Court decisions, in the Tobacco and Standard Oil de...

The oscilations caused by every separate action, of the heart reveal the condition of the organ. Only the more decided oscilations are visible to the eye, however, and to make a perfect and permanent record of even the minutest, resort is had to the camera. The magnified image of the oscilating string is thrown, by means of powerful light, upon a narrow slit in a dark box which contains a moving picture film. By means of a shutter arrangement over the slit, exposures in i egular moving picture fashion are made upon the film. The record of a patfent's heartbeat appears on the film in something resembling a series of angular, vertical capital M's with lesser irregularities.
