LABOR NOtfeS. The habit of wearing wooden shoes s growing among the poorer people of Cincinnati. The iron moulders of the United States have gained twenty-four local unions and 4,00(T membership during he past year, A Chattanooga judge has ordered a company to refund to its employes 16,000 deducted for rent and medical )urposes. The Chicago Plumbers' union demands that a cabinet office be erected, secretary of labor, who shall directly represent labor. The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette says: "The expectation of better things near at hand is the main support of the iron trade while the wait continues." Trade unionists of Cincinnati are now devoting their entire attention to two needed reforms, cheaper car fares and the introduction of civil service into the government of the cities of Ohio. Since the labor troubles in the upper peninsula of Michigan, 10,000 iron and copper miners in Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota have become organized and two advances in wages have been secured. Just a year ago the trade unionists of Dayton,, O., established a free employment bureau. The first annual report shows: Males who applied for situations, 3,689; females, 4,451; situations secured for males, 868; for females, 2,621. Trades unionism Is growing rapidly in Cincinnati, there having been a large increase in organizations and membership during the past year. A labor organ for the city has been established, "The Union Label Advertiser." The idea of restricting still further the immigration of undesirable aliens Is growing more pronounced among members of congress. The restrictions that have been enforced witbin the last three years have produced favorable results. HIJMOHISFS COSHER, feOME MfeW JOKES FOR OUR LfeAfo Wit, ttildom ftBrt SfrttieV dMfclftftl ftfi<!

A thirsty looking man wandered into a State street saloon the other evening, threw 15 cents down on the counter and said huskily: "Gimme a big glass." The decanter and a large tumbler were placed in front'of him, and he began to pour out a drink. When the tumbler was half full he stopped and looked at it as if estimating the quantity-a? compared with the size of his thirst. The result appeared to be unsatisfactory. He resumed pouring and slowly filled the glass to within half an inch of the top. The bartender hastily took off his coat and vest, removed his collar and necktie, and then hesitated. "No," he finally said, putting on the garments again. "I'd like first rate to go in swimming with you, but it's too blamed cold!"—Chicago Tribune.
