A LABOR EXCHANGE.
Unique Scheme Organized by Work
ingmen in Kansas City.
A Kansas City dispatch says: The in
dustrial council, composed of the cities
of the various lsbor organizations, pro
poses to establish a labor organization in
Kansas City. The plan is unique. It
provides for membership in every posi
tion in life, who shall exchange their
products with each other. The farmer
will bring a load of turnips to town and
dump them in the cellar of the labor ex
change’s store. For them he will re
ceive “units cf value” in checks issued
by the labor exchange.
With these he can buy dry goods or
groceries at the store, or he can go to
the exchange lumber yard and buy lumber
with these checks with which to put up
more buildings on the farm. He can also
take these checks and go with his family
to the exchange merry-go-round, for
places of amusement are a part of the
plan, and schools also, though churches
are not mentioned.

SHOULD HE IN EVERT NURSERY.
In many nurseries in England there is
io be found upon the wall a large card,
perhaps two by three feet. At the top
jf the card is written the name and ad
dress of the nearest doctor, or the one to
be called in case of accident. Beneatr.
W the Wbfds, “What to do and hos to
do it.” There is a list of the accidents
most liable to Happen to children and
the remedy for each. Bites and swal
lowed buttons, bleeding nose, burns,
convulsions, stings, bruises and sprains,
and poisons are all provided for; and in
a box beneath the card are kept absorb
ent cotton, court-plaster, lint, arnica,
and various necessaries that are only to
be used in cases of accident. When
general chaos reigns, and even the intel
ligent have 1 ost their wits, this card is
invaluable. To be able to read and un
derstand it might be one of the tests
used in engaging a nursemaid. Printed
cards could probably be read more lead-

It doesn’t always follow that iM
electrtcity helps in housework. . 2
Many little tasks about the house may
be done by electricity with a great gain
in convenience. Tate a slight and tri
fling matter as nn instance. Grinding
the coffee takes some minutes. It can be
arranged so that the only attention
needed i3 the pulling out of a small slide
which allows the coffee to fall into the
mill from a bin. Pulling out the slide
starts the motor, and when a given
amount is ground and has fallen into ths
coffee-pot below, the weight will auto
matically turn off the motor, thus leav
ing the coffee in the pot ready to boil.
Among the other things about the house
that can be done by electricity are wash
ing clothes, turniag a clothes-wnnger, a
meat-chopper, a fruit expresser, an ice
cream freezer, an egg heater, a cream ex
tractor, which will take all the cream out
of the milk in an instant, and an oatmeal
crusher. These and a hundred other lit
tle things are usually done wrong by do
mestics. By electricity they are done
exactly right.—Detroit Free Press.
