tiAiU&S riii RISE
Competition for Common Labor
Is Unprecedented in Ail
Chicago. American Industry is
deadlocked in a billion dollar wage
war to obtain additional skilled labor.
Jtat'roads, meeting the recent heavy
edU s a the steel .and packing In
dustries will, under awards already
granted and others being negotiated,
hand out $100,000,000 or more yearly
to "common labor."
Mftor railroads are awarding main
tenance and shop laborers 3 to 10 per
cent advances on the average of one
system a day.
Labor and Industrial leaders said
this is the first time in paace time
that demands for men who work with
their muscles has completely dominat
ed the country's industrial progress.
Railroads, packers, steel concerns
and manufacturers are fighting each
other in the Chicago labor market in
an effort to fill demands caused by
the "prosperity era.''
Minor industries and small employ
ers, caught in the struggle, are also
advancing pay.
That the higher pay move will soon
involve skilled and white collar work- !
ers as an economic necessity was seen
III the fact that various unions on doz- j
ens of railway lines are negotiating ;
with managers direct for increases. If j
these negotiations are not successful
petition! will be presented by them to
the United States labor board. The
board, preparing to hear pleas of main
tenance and shop laborers on a grou;)
of road.s, expects a flood of petitions
from skilled workers.

The man who wishes to keep hens
on a city lot or in the back yard
should purchase pallets in the fall or
buy day-old chicks or hatching eggs
in the spring. Well matured pul
lets are the only kind to buy, as
they will begin to lay before the
roid weather sets In The maturity
of pulb'ts is indicated by the red col
or of the comb and by the sftM of the
birds. Day-old- chicks are now a
regular market commodity In all
parts of the country and are shlpp d
long distances. It is much harder
to raise small chi' kens In the small
space of a back yard than out in the
country where there is plenty of
