Chicago, July 13. To-day bore out
predictions of the packing house pro
prietors that the big strike would not
cause a atoppage of operations. In the
great abbatolr district things moved
slowly indeed to-day, but they moved.
All the packing houses reported that
they were slaughtering a little. Every
department was said to be doing some
work, not much, but aome. and waa
expected to increase the activity to
morrow. Loading and anionine waa
in progress, though heavily curtailed,
aa.was the buying or cattle. Some
hundreds of new workmen were hired
and put to work in the places which
had been vacated )n thousands.
On the other band the strike spread
aomewhat by the action of teamsters
in considerable numbers, but ostensi
bly acting as individuals, refusins. to
handle products touched by newly
hired non-union men. This refusal
was usually based on the time honored
plea that a different course, contracta
notwithstanding, would put the team
ster in peril of his life. . Extensive
installment of sleeping cots and cook

various packing houaea waa apparently

One of the most interesting state
ments made today regarding the

E. McDowell,of the University of Chi
cago settlement near the stock yards.
Bhe said that tho great difficulty the
union workmen had to expeet was
that presented by the "casual work-
err," who, she said, were at the beck
and call of the, Plant superintendents
There are about 5,000 of thla class of
laborers around the yards looking for
work, according to Miss McDowell,
and the regular workmen are in con-
atant fear that they will be supplanted
Many or tneae workmen, It la said, are
now being engaged to take the places of
the strikers. Miss McDowell made the
remark: "I do not expect serious
trouble unless troops are called out."
Attacking afresh the allegations that
the atrike Is for Increased wages, Pres
dent Donnolly, the strike leader, gave
out the following statement to-day, ad

A Jolly Bit of Exercise Which
Strengthen the Muscles.
Here is a bit of work thatwill
strengthen the muscles involved.
The two opponents may be designat
ed as No. 1 and No. 2. No. 1 should
stand in front of No. 2, with bis
back to the latter, taking No. 2's
right " arm over his shoulder and
seizing No. 2's right wrist in the
encircling grasp of his own right
hand. -No. 2 should make- the 6ame
kind of closp around No. l's left
wrist with his own left hand, hold
ing the latter's wrist at the sidQ,
When this position has been taken,
et No. 1 sway 6lowly around to the
eft, No. 2 making just enough' re
sistance as will not altogether pre
vent the twisting of both bodies.
After three exercises m this posi
tion the two boys should ; change
places and then again twist inlthe
same fashion to the left. A breath
ing spell should now follow. Then
the original No. 1 may again take
his position in front of hia adversa
ry, but with the other's left arm
drawn over his shoulder -with the
hand encircling clasp and withhia
adversary's right hand encircling
his right wrist . at the side. The
twist should now be to the fright
and should be firmly enough" resist
ed by No. 2 as almost to', prevent
the success of the twist. After ihis
Nos. 1 and 2 may againichange-po-sitions,
but remember that which
ever contestant ia in front of the
other should be allowed gradually
to obtain the victory, though" not
without fair resistance on'the part
The Puaslea' Tea Party.
Seven little. pussy cats. Invited out to tea.
Cried: "Mother, let us go. Oh, do, for
good we'll surely be.
We'll wear our bibs and hold our things
as you have shown us how
Spoons in right paws, cups In left, and
make a pretty bow. .
We'll always say, .'Tea, If you please,'
and 'Only half of that.' "
"Then go, my darling children.'.' said the
happy mother cat.
The seven little pussy cats went out that
night to tea;
Their heads were smooth -and glossy";
: their tails were swinging free;
They held their things as they had learn
ed and tried to be polite.
With snowy bibs beneath their chins they
were a pretty sight.
But, alas, for manners beautiful and
coats as soft aa silk I
The moment that the little kits were ask
ed to take some milk
They dropped their spoons, forgot to bow,
and, oh, what do you think!
They put their noses in the cups, and aU
began to drink!
Tes; every naughty little kit set up a
"me-ouw" for more.
Then knocked tho teacups over and
scampered through the door.
Feeding tha Birda.
A dear old lady, told about in an
exchange has such a fanny pretty
idea about the birdies. She thinks
they are like some chickabiddies and
that they need plenty of exercise in
winter, so she makes little netted
bags, fills them with bits of bread
and hangs them in the trees.
' Then, when the birdies peck at
them, bob, bob, bob, up go the bags,
swinging right up in therair, and
Master Robin and Miss Sparrow

birds do get a lot of exercise, with
out a doubt, by this device.
