This consists of turning tin bricks
over and piling tham opinrows. It
does not sound like vary lisrd work, but
whoa It comes to either stacking or
turning over thirty thousand brioks a
day it will be seen that the task would
tax the back of many a man.
Most of the rough labor is done by
Poles, and it is said that this is mostly
the race which allows its women to
work in the yards. Contrary to expec
tation, it is neither widows nor single
women who do the work, but the wives
uu uiotners 01 ismuiea, who labor ia
the yards right beside their husbands.
Not much can be learned from the
employes themselves, but the police
who have traveled around the yards
tell bad tales. They say that it is no
uncommon sight to see little girls
turning bricks who are so tired that
they crawl on all fours from one pile to
mother. Their backs are bowed and
ocnt and they cry when they try to
stand np straight.
The women, for their work, are p4id

uree dollars or, rather, their parent
at it. Owing to the hours in the yards

This was too much temptation and
soun she baa the contents of her ward
robe spread out for his inspection. Her
heart misgave her, though, for her hus
bana had positively forbidden her ever
to sell any of her old clothes. Bin
only hoped he would never find out
and with the money she could buy such
fine new ones.
There was one gown that she did
hesitate to part with. It was a flowered
t-Mgown, with a big bow at the sido

When Mr. B- came home in the

He stepped up to her and gave her s
vigorous rap on the back.
The next moment he saw moons and
