There is liltle dou,~' (:pine first served in tilling orders for that a second carh)ad of this vatuab!e earh)ads of picric acid. explosive can be secured for l,al;ah county farmers. On account of this it has been decided to get together or- ders for a carlpoad with the advance payment of $6 for each 100 pounds wanted.

The action increased the number of major rail unions which have vo|ed not to strike to nine, and the number of railroad employes hound by such action to about three-fom'ths of tile country's total of approximately [ 2,000,000. i Leaders of the six shop crafts or- ! ! i RATIFICATION SENT ~lganizations, controlling 600,000 men, | iand leaders of the 375,000, mainten-! i anee of way employes and of tile 25-: i fro0 stationary firemen also have an- i ncuneed that they will not participate ; i in tile strike.
