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.

FOH MKX.'L DIRECTOR AGAIN Considerable interest has been aroused in this district over tho school election to be held In June, for one director to serve three year.) and one clerk to serve one year. The directors were fortunal i la employing an able corps of teacher; , giving us one of the most successful schools in the county for the pan) ear. T. E. Broyles, the outgoing di lector, has worked hard to lower ex j senses and at the same time give ;ood service, and he had said that 'ge would not serve another term. To show their appreciation of his fl'orts and their (it sire for him to ontinue in office, about forty friend) : ;iid patrons of the school met at his i evidence last Sunday afternoon to equest him to reconsider Ills decis on and be a candidate for re-elec-ion. S. T. Shell and others, in a few veil chosen words, presented lit" 1 talma of the callers. lb- finally ac cepted and said that in rase of el c ion he would serve. The callers also nit Mrs. Gladys Gibbons as a can-, didate for the clerkship. It Is ad- 1 isable to have the clerk a resident af the tofn so as to be accessible o all school business. 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 grass range. THE MARKETS Portland.

Gravity can be over come ,y (he newly discovered Odlc ray, Edgar L. rlolllngshead, scientist, who maintains private laboratories at Pa .1 1 1 : a. declared In an Interview. The Odlc ray proves that electricity is an element, or substance, just as wood, with a definite atomic speed, he maintained, saying he based his con clusions on 20 yearB of study. He declared that: By use of the Odlc ray any metal can be made to have a lighter weight than any known gas without iu any way changing its strength. Hy use of Its radiance a photograph can be taken through 1 1 V4 Inches of solid lead and 54j inches of solid steel with five seconds exposure.
