What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

H. HEWSON, Proprietor Jefferson City, Mo., June 52.— Section* of Missouri are overrun with itrietnplo.v eri un'ii a« a re-ult of a bulletin l-^ued hv the «tote bureau of labor statistic* that men were needed in Mis­ souri to harvest the wheat cm o p , according to reports here. Publicity was given to this bul­ letin by the newspapers o f . St. Louis ^and Kansas City,, and thousands of unemployed of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and other states started for Missouri to swell the army of unemployed already here. About the same time it was advertised that Kan­ sas needed thousands of men and this increased the rush. The postoffice department pos­ ted bulletins calling attention to Missouri’s and Kansas’ demands for harvest hands. This made the situation still worse. That thousands responded to the call for harvest hands in Mis­ souri and Kansas, which they must have known could last but a few days at most, is indicative of the widespread condition of un­ employment in the United States occasioned by the business de­ pression and hard times which followed in the wake of Demo­ cratic .tariff tinkering. When Commissioner Fitzpat­ rick saw that Missouri would be overrun and that hundreds would .{get no work, he tried to stop the movement to the state by adver­ tisements and by notifying the labor bureaus of other states. But the army had grown to such dimensions that he could not do it. During the past week several hundred men seeking work in the wheat fields have been in Jeffer­ son City. Seventy-five Greeks arrived today from Gary, Ind. The Missouri wheat harvest is practically over and was well ^un­ der way before the army of the unemployed from the eastern cities reached the state. Kansas is already overrun. State Labor Commissioner O’ Bri­ en wired Labor Commissioner Patrick that the only sections of Kansas that could use any more men are around ElUs and Hays City. Fitzpatrick has been rout­ ing the “ harvest hands” who stopped off here to points desig­ nated by O’ Brien. The Greeks who arrived today will be sent to l ' During the:pai8.t week the freight, trainsriif 'MisSouri oh \Iiries iruhn-; ing betweeafS.t.,Louis and Kan-’ 9as City h ^ ^ ^ e n \ literally aliVe with'/‘haryest/Hinds,’ ’ as’ the\an- employed call 'tfienTseTves'. They' clambered,in bunches of from 25. to 100 on the freight cars and de­ fied train crews who sought to put them off. One freight train from St Louis brought in eighty yesterday. These men went to the station agent and asked for soap so that they could wash‘ up. They said they were needed for the wheat fields of western Missouri and Kansas. The eagerness of some of the men for work is pathetic. Hun­ dreds of them have been thrown out o f employment by the shutt­ ing down of mills and manufac­ tories. There have been calls for har-j vest hands in Kansas and Missou­ ri before, but never such a re­ sponse as this. The labor bu­ reaus of the two states have liter­ ally been swamped with telegrams and communications asking for information about the work and for transportation to reach it. Although no transportation was forthcoming, the men started beating their way upon freight trains. The problem confronting Mis­ souri and Kansas is what tc do with the thousands of unemployed men within their borders.

The secretary reported that in the first quarter of 1914 the furnaces of this association’s members pro­ duced 1,097,187 tons as against a capacity of 2,929.800 tons o f pig iron. Of 110 furnaces the aver- ✓ age number running was 65. Taking the government’s average c f cost per ton as a basis the total loss on all sales during the quarter was $1,883,964. But the secre- tnry says: “ Fearful as the con­ ditions were in January, February and March, every one here knows that, if anything, they have been much worse in April, May and June, ” and thei’e is “ no evidence of alteration for the better.” This report frankly declined to “ make more discouraging a state­ ment that in all its details is- gen­ erally well known to every manu- ufactories:!/ T 6 e 6 , ^ ;founHaries- in the United 'States Venga’gi^|vliti;' making iron, steel' and malleable castings are .not. operating /m o re, than .50 per cent of capacity: Large iand small establishments are in the same boat Some pig iron furdaces;.ar3 selling at re­ duced .prices- in order to invite pur chases, 'and others are stock­ ing up in hope of a turn of the tide, but it is not probable that any of them are blowing out on letting a dollars worth of business escape them, for the purpose of manufacturing political capital.

Fires in Japan are so common that this destructive agency has estab­ lished itself as a national institution, and a whole vocabulary has grown up to express every shade of meaning In matters fiery. The Japanese language has special terms for an incendiary fire, an accidental fire, fires starting from one's own bouse, a fire caught from next door, a fire which one shares with others, a fire which is burning to an end, the flame of a fire, anything— for instance, a brazier, from which a fire may arise; the side from which to attack a fire in order to extinguish it; a visit of condolence after a fire.—Lon­ don Mail.
