They claim that they lose an hour s work, especially during haying, harvest - in" and oth'er times when the heavy morning dews interfered with harvest work. Under the old system of time the dew was dried oft the fields bv 8 30 a. m.. and allowed a normal day's work. Under the new svstem they are not able to go into the fields until 9.30 a. m., and consequently lose an hour's time when time is a very vital question in harvesting and haying, grain and other crops. Regardless of the time work is begun in the morning: the men insist on quitting at the regular time in the evening.
