TWA Freedom' land, the proud domain
Whoso glories never fade.
Called forth her sons in rags and shame
To form & brush brigads?
I see them comtner down the street
Wlvn vi uo,,v "
With no heroic soul to lead
Their lll-dlrected tread.
I only see suspended trade
And hear misfortune's cry; .
"Forward! Chicago's Brush Brigade!
Or Btarve yourself and die."
Alone the street they press their way.
And shame our country's worth;
The Idle tollers of the land, .
The proudest land on earth.
From mills and factories driven out,
As culprits, thieves and knaves, -
By schemes and tricks and greed of
men, " ' i
Transformed to hungry slaves.
And still misfortune's cry goes forth,
Our country's rending blade, j
"The mills are closed, the factories too;
Forward! ye Brush Brigade 1"
The men who might be blessed with
With tender love a caress,
March onward through our busy streets,
In poverty's distress.
Where Is the pride we once beheld?
The honor for' the flags.
The stars and stripes that float today
O'er poverty and rags?
Where is the voice,- the patriot's voice.
Of olden times parade?
It cries today In ghostly tones,
"Forward! ye Brush Brigade!"
O proud dominion of the free.
Has honor left thy throne?
Has all thy happiness been changed
Into an Idle groan?
The old-time latch-strlng drawn within,
The shutters closed and nailed,
The boundless sources of the land
By sharks and misers paled?
Kind heaven forbid a thought like this.
'Tls but a darkening shade.
And soon industry's voice will call
Chicago's Brush Brigade.

George F. Barrlngton, a clerk In the
San Francisco. Custom House, has in
vented a boat davit which seems to
he far superior to those now In use.
He has a working model of It which Is
viewed with great Interest by ship
masters visiting the Custom, Housn.
Unlike tho curved davits now In use
his davit consists of two parts, an up
right stanchion with a bar attached,
on which the boat hangs. This lr
works on a Joint, and by pulling on a
tackle on each davit the boat can be
swung Inboard or outboard In a very
small space of time. Barrlngton claims
that by his device one man alone can
swing outboard and lower In the wa
ter any bIbc boat In ten seconds.
