Three Attackers of Express
Wagon Are Nabbed.
Chairman Rogan of Brotherhood of
Teamsters Says, "We Won't Hesi
tate to Call Out Everything
on Wheels."
New York, Nov. S. Three arrests of
strikers were mado by the police fol
lowing the riot at Korty-scvcnth street
and Eighth nvenue, this city, hi which
an Adams Express company wagon
was attacked. The men arrested were
taken to the West Forty-seventh street
station. The driver had his head cut
open by a brick. He was taken to the
Adams express barn In West Forty
seventh street The two helpers were
also Injured. Fully a dozen In the
crowd sustained serious Injuries.
The police seem unable to cope with
the situation, and more trouble of a
very serious nature Is expected.
"If worse comes to worse we will
not hesitate to call out everything on
wheels," was the declaration made by
Michael Itognu, chairman of the Joint
executive committee of the Interna
tional Brotherhood of Teamsters, after
n warlike half day, during which taxi
cabs were slashed and smashed, while
express wagons were attacked. The
sympathetic strike of 2,000 taxicab
chauffeurs gave now Impetus to the
express strike and for a time shifted
the object of attack.
Sir. ltogan had been asked when the
meeting would be hold to discuss the
general strike, expected to call out 20,
000 affiliated men aud effect the tying
up of the work of 100,000. He said,
"Possibly not before Thursday."
Thomas .T. Grcely, business agent of
the Independent Hackmen's associa
tion, having a membership of 2,000
men, Informed William II. Ashton, or
ganizer of the teamsters, that the hack
men had authorized a sympathetic
strike, provided the union men of the
red taxicab service did not pick up
any fares on the street. Mr. Ashton
conferred with Samuel Gompcrs, pres
ident of the American Federation of
An open letter was sent the express
companies by a committee of the Mer
chants' association of New York, cit
ing Mayor Gaynor's declaration that
the peace negotiations failed because
the companies would not agree that no
one should be discharged for joining
the union. The letter referred to the
fact that the association's members
furnished the bulk of the express com
panies' business and protested against i
a "needless and unreasonable attitude, i
which prevents the solution of the ex- ,
istlng difficulties."
Hubert Latham In Continous Flight
Over Baltimore Forty Minutes.
Baltimore, Nov. 8. Hubert Latham,
the French aviator, has established a
new record by flying from the track at
Halethorpe over Baltimore, traveling
from the extreme southwest to the
eastern limits und returning to the
starting point without a halt. The
time occupied ln the flight was 42 min
utes 10 seconds. The wind was blow
ing ten miles un hour most of the
The new record consists ln the fact
that for practically forty minutes he
wns in continuous flight over the city.
This is considered one of the most
dangerous feats ln the realms of avia
tion. When he started the bell In the city
hull tolled and tho factory whistles,
iuUlng to the din, notified the peoplo
of the aviator's approach. When he
started, soon after noon, every tall
building in the downtown district of
the city was a vantage ground for
thousands who sought viewpoints to
witness the filght, while every roof
top was black with people.

reading and study in many languages
he only begins to learn that nobody

not the true comparison, but "as full

half n dozen women nnd children in
the tenement were able to get out be

The cries of the women nnd the

Patrolmen Peter Donohue, John Ri

If you do not nnswer questions be

child's fear of "bogies" or dreadful

Do not feel tlint your child is nn in

It Is. of course, very tedious for nn

bed when he longs to get up, nnd the
resources of mother nnd nurse are
sometimes almost exhausted ln the ef
fort to amuse him.
Perhaps you may feel Inclined to
let him get up nnd say nothing about

hoodwink him. you can't hoodwink
the heart, and It will make the child
pay for the deception sooner or later.
A person with n permanently weak

He cannot enter the army or navy.
Ho would be instantly rejected by tho
examining mrdlcal officer. He cannot

he does so it is at the risk of his life.
Very hard work Is almost impossible
to him. He must always "take care"
more or less and so Is almost certain
to fall behind his more lucky because

A Gift For Baby.
A charming gift for a new baby is a
set of washed gold safety pins. These
are not the small sets connected by a
chain used to fasten the little frocks,
but are ordinary safeties specially gold
washed for the purpose.
Select a dozen strong, sharp pins nnd
take them to any reliable Jeweler. In
Borne places the set can be gold wash
ed for as little as 60 cents. The cost
Is never higher than would commonly
be paid for any useful christening or
beliy shower gift.
The gilt coating prevents rust and
does not wear off easily. To represent
them a tiny homemade case of ribbon
Is a pretty idea.

But tho fatty fluid which comes

When a horse Is doing no work

harm, as it helps" to keep out the

Feed for Work Horse.

orb of a section usually Is a pretty
safe guide for a beginner. In the

and a large number never are fed any
grain except corn. Corn furnishes
heat and fat during the idle months of
the winter, and it furnishes power ln
the working season. We have been
taught that oats are needed for the
sake of health and spirit and that they
contain a principle that is needed, but
I know of no proof that this is a fact,
B&ys the National Stockman.
Our readers would be Interested In
an Ohio station bulletin prepared by
Prof. Carmlchael on feeding work
horses. This bulletin was published
& year ago and gave the results of 48
weeks' experiments with six-grade
Porcherons on the station farm. Mix
ed clover and timothy hay was fed,
and ear corn wns found to be as effi
cient as oats, pound for pound. The
corned horses endured hard work dur
ing hot weather as well as did the
oats fed horses, and tho oats did not
Induce increased spirit or endurance.
Tho corn ration produced work moro
cheaply than oats. These results do
not apply to growing stock or to
horses getting timothy and no clover.

Oleo as a Calf Food.
Now hopo appears for tho oloo-inok-era
In recent tests at an experiment
farm in Italy. It was found that tho
best feeding material for calves was
a mixture of skim milk with oleo
margarine. Tho calves aro not likoly
to object to this substitute for tho
natural food, and It would seem that
the oleo oil, If it coud be bought at
a price low enough, would be just tho
thing to even up the composition of
skim milk. It Is claimod that a good
quality of veal can bo made on this

Keep the Barn Warm.
If tho farmers of our country would
make their stables so warm that wa
ter would not freeze in them ln an or
dinarily cold night, one-third more
animals could be kept on tho same
feed as now used. Tar paper and
cheap lumber do not cost so much
as hay and grain to keep up animal

only once, feed costs every winter.
Tho most dreaded disease of civilization
is the condition known as appendicitis.
Once fully established, nothing will remedy
but tho cold knife. The theory that this
Inflammation was caused by seeds or for
eign bodies entering the appendix is long
exploded. The true cause of appendicitis
Is sluggishness of the bowels, constipation;
and the gases which aro formed in conse-
auenco produce germs known to the sclen
fie physician as the Bacilli Colli Com
mensis. Now to avoid this formation of
gas germs, constipation and the resulting
Inflammation, take Smith's Pineapple and
Butternut Pills, which have been tested in
all the various diseases of the stomach,
bowels and liver, and found to be the
greatest and best preventative remedy
known. These wonderful little vegetable
pills cleanse the blood, and make It rick

healthy action and invigorate the whole
