A GHASTLY INAFNT INDU8TRY
With all their eagerness for
orders for munitions of war
more properly known as ap
paratus for murder, Betlile
hem and Bridgeport ought
not to begrudge Pittsburgh
one order which has come its
way. I hey are busy Supply-
ing the matei ial foi mutila-
t ion of men. I he Pil isburgh
firm isdevoting its industrial
at livities to pah hing them
Up. I lie order which has gone
to Pittsburgh foots up $15,
000,000 To fill it, according
to the manager of the factory,
the works are running at don
ble time and employing an en
ormoush increased number of
men. What thev make is arti-
ficial arms and legs. From E
gland and France opine bi
for 200,000 artificial

ent turn out 250 limbs

able to make 1,200 to 1,5
in the same timea mi
gratifying index to a healtl
market in Europe for o
products.
It is not often that tin I
terdependence of industr' *>
so clearly shown. The bust
Bridgeport is with its rill

Bethlehem get for the tu< n
