Local Union No. 1170, United Mine
Workers of America, of McCurtain,
Okla., has sent out the following ap-
peal to the people of Oklahoma, which,
coming so soon after the great dis-
aster there, in which seventy-three
men lost -heir lives, has an especial
"McCurtain, Okla., March 26, 1912
"Whereas, On March 20, 1912, at
9:05 a. m„ without a moment's warn-
ing. and in the twinkling of an eye
seventy-three Bturdy men and bread-
winners were swept into eternity by
the awful explosion at Mine No. 2 at
this place, leaving 160 widows and
orphans without means of support
"Whereas, The results of this dread-
ful accident have called forth from
this and adjoining states so many
touching expressions of sympathy
and is calling forth so much needed
material aid; and
"Whereas, We, the surviving mem-
bers of Mine Workers' Local Union
No. 1170, McCurtain, Okla., desire to
express our sincere appreciation of
this kindtiess, and to contribute our
plea for means and methods which
will, as far as possible, prevent the
recurrence of such a calamity;
Now, therefore, on our own account,
but especially in behalf of the wid-
ows and orphans of our deceased fel-
low-workers, we do most sincerely
thank the people of Oklahoma and of
adjoining states, for their sympathy
and aid in this, our hour of grief.
While our despair and grief are
too great to permit any spirit of crit-
icism, we cannot but feel it our duty
toward the thousands of others of this
state, who daily toil amid the dan-
gers of the mine, to appeal to those
in authority to do all possible to min-
imize the death rate in this industry.
The legislature of this state, wisely
enough, passed laws requiring those
who hold responsible places about
the mines to pass an examination, and
subsequently the legislature created a
school of mines to equip men for.
these responsible positions. Sadly,
but truthfully, we call attention to
the fact that hardly had this school
begun its important mission, before a
conspiracy had been formed to wipe
it out of existence, and now that this
conspiracy is about to take form in
the shape and under the name of the
so-called Akin bill, we call upon the
State Federation of Labor, the farmers
and mechanics, the bankers and pro-
fessional men, we call upon all re-
ligious, fraternal, social and business
organizations, and we call upon the
is what we call it. Because it keeps
on "rising" in your estimation with
every board you use. If you intend
doing any building or repairing this
year now is the time and this is the
place to get you lumber. We won't
tell you how much you can save by
buying here. You'll find that out
when you call.

he would not be tormented by the in-

One evening, after most of the gang
had gone home, he asked the foreman
for his time, saying that ho was going

No greater proof of this is needed than the
growth of this department. People are learning
that if they have a house to rent, chickens, eggs,
a sewing machine, piano, or anything else under
the sun to sell, that the way to let the people
know who may be wanting to buy these things,

Or if it is the other way around and they want
to buy something, whatever it is, from a section
of land to a pair of pigeons, they tell the people
who have these things to sell. How? The

reported for work. Teoflla, the inter-
preter, had quit the preceding Satur-
day to get married.
Old Heine, the foreman of the sau-
sage department, ruefully surveyed
the half-dozen new girls standing
around aimlessly, and big Boleslaw,
who had been sent up from the gate
with them because enough girls had
not appeared for work that morning.
An hour of a busy day had gone al-
ready with no orders packed, and
O'Brien, the shipping boss, was likely
to stalk in at any moment, storming
at the delay.
"How can <ley expec' me to turn
out work with such cattle?" groaned
"W'at you want us to do?" demand-
ed pretty little Agata.
Old Heine staved. He had always
associated prettiness with shallow-
ness, and be thought Agata passed too
much time primping ever to learn
"You speak English?" he queried.
"Sure," answered Agata.
He told her what he wanted done.
In ten minutes everybody was busy
and old Heine could think calmly of
the impending visit of O'Brien.
Stalwart Boleslaw felt humiliated at
having to work at such tasks as the
girls did, and he listened shamefully
as Agata translated old Heine's orders
to him. The other men saw that he
was bashful, and they increased his
discomfiture by their raillery. He
soon determined to make himself in-
dependent of Agata's assistance by
learning to understand the foreman
Old Heine was pleased witl: Agata,
except for her good looks. He feared
that she would soon leave him to get
married, as Teoflla had done, with a
green gang on his hands. To post-
pone this evil as long as possible he
determined that no man in the eau
sage department should court her K
he knew It.
In a few days Matje, the trucker,
began to loiter between loads at the
table where Agata worked. Agata.
marking old Heine's displeasure, tried
to rid herself of Matje by telling him
If Piotr, back in the old country, who
some time would come to Chicago to
claim her. But instead of acting as a
Seferrent, her story seemed to arouse
In him a sudden ambition to over-
come his absent rival. Ttien one day
he got down to the loading platform
with a box of sausage after the train
had been pulled. Thereupon old
Heine discharged him and put Boles-
law In Bis place. Truckers were eas-
ier to get than Interpreters, and he
felt certain that the bashful Boleslaw
would not try to woo Agata. Boles-
law was pleased to find himself doing
i man's work.
In a few days Franciszek. the nailer,
began to linger, after his day's work
was done, for a chance to walk home
with Agata. Old Heine soon noticed
this. One morning Franciszek came
i few minutes late and fouud Boles-
law In hiB place. Rheumatic Tomasz
was put to trucking.
Anton, the sealer, was the next to
fall a victim to the charms of Agata.
A. f«w days later a customer com-
plained of th© weights of a consign-
ment, and Anton was discharged.
Boleslaw was put in his place at the
Old Heine did not relish these In-
roads on his gang. No one seemed to
understand why the men had been
lischarged for offenses that hitherto
bad been condoned, so the forerqan
hinted the reason to Agata, hoping
that Bhe would keep the men at a dis-
Boleslaw, not realizing that his ap-
parent bashfulness had had an Impor-
tant Influence on bis advancement, felt
i pardonable pride, because after only
tlx months of work he was earning a*
much 13 any one on the gang He no
longer had to get his orders through
Agata, and now his fellows seldom
laughed at his shyness. Ituf-he had
long admired Agata, as she was aware
From his glances.
One day Boleslaw whispered a re-
juest to Agata for permission to take
her to a dance on the following Sat-
urday evening. She put him off with
in evasive answer, but be took It for
i refusal due to his awkwardness and
blushed and stammered confusedly.
He had heard the story of the absent
Piotr, and now he blamed himself for
his boldness. Agata seemed so unat-
tainable to htm that he marveled at
his effrontery in asking to acoompany
her to the dane©.
For the next few weeks Boleslaw
worked harder than he had ever work-
sd before. He bad done every kind of
work In the sausage packing room,
>nd now be set himself to learn the
various brands of sausage, how to
keep the tlmo of the workers and even
the nameB of all of old Heine's custo-
mers. As Boleslaw's efficiency grew
bid Heine gave htm more to do, until
he was practically running the pack-
ing gang besides doing bis own worb
it the scales.
A straw boss had long been needed
for the packing gang, so that old
Heine could have more time to over-
see the manufacturing end of his de-
partment But dread of Increasing his
did not want to return to his old em-
ployer for the rest of his wages. Old
Heine suspected the truth in Boles-
law's case. Boleslaw was worth more
to him than Jo anyone else, and, be-
sides, Boleslaw knew certain secrets
of the sausage packing room that
might prove valuable to a rival. Thus
the mere suspicion that his scaler had
procured employment elsewhere sud-
denly had enhanced his value to old
Heine. He went to his office where
lie kept his timebook thinking of ways
to rctsin Boleslaw.
While old Heine was gone Boleslaw
went to speak to Agata. "W'en you
go to ol' country?" she asked
Boleslaw was surprised to discover
that she was Interested In his move-
ments. Her question gave him hope.
"Maybe w'en Piotr coom to dls
country," he replied.
Agata laughed. "Aw, dat vas jus' a
lie, 'cause I no want to be boddered
by dem udder fellers," she explained.
"Den dere's no Piotr?" exclaimed
Boleslaw, mystified. "But you not let
me talk to you and I love you," he
"Dem udder fellers dey all git fired
'cause o' me," she said, with downcast
eyes "I was afraid you get fired, too.
But I no', tell you dat lie about I'lotr."
"I been lyin' to ol' Heine, too, 'bout
goin' to ol' country. I got anudder
lob." said Boleslaw.
The foreman reappeared. "How

Jiuoh will they pay you I" he blurted
i Boleslaw was confused at being ov-
trheard. "Twenty-five cents, gang
:ime," he confessed.
I "I glf you 26 cents straight time an'
make you boss o' the packln' gang,"
)ffered Old Heine.

MOTHERS DAY PROCLAMATION
SECOND SUNDAY IN MAY.!
To pay tribute to the patient, lov-
ing mothers no,v departed from our
midst, and to honor and reverence
those left with us, an "International
Honor Day" has been designated by
the civilized nations of the earth.
The sweetest treasure that life
contains 1b your mother, who, dwell-
ing here on earth, is more a part ot
heaven—but whether with you or
above with the angels, Bhe is your
mother still. Your mother's love is
eternal, living on when youth has
faded, when other love has withered
and been forgotten, and when the
leaves of friendship have fallen.
Nothing that we can ever do can
remove the debt of gratitude we owe
our mothers; nothing can repay them
for their patience, purity and loving
care; but on this day dedicated to
them, we can In a small yet sincere
way show our thoughtfulneBS of and
gratitude to them,
