Overseas Votorans Noso Out
Regulars In State and
FIRTH WINS SHRIEVALTY
IlcnJ, whose plurality vnn -10-1.
. Trenton, Sept. 80. Complete re
tarn from nil dlntrlctn of Mercer
county, xrhtch were not nvnllnhle until
late- yette rdj because of the delay In
anmeratlnir the heavy vote cnuneil by
the balloting of women, revcnled several
ftrprties In the state and county elec
tion. Trobably the greatest upwt
which the post-election dope received
was In the defeat of William A. Moore,
young lawyer nnd overseas veteran,
who wn nosed out of the Republican
Assembly race by Dr. Clinton H.
liam II. Illnekwrll was the IiIrIi man
on the ticket in the county, polling
10,0ii4 votes, nnd Ocorjte W. fluthrie.
who also served lu the House last year,
finished wcond with a, total of 12.17S.
Doctor Head's vote was ll.flSO. white
Moore, who was fourth, mustered 11,
28r. The Itrv. James E. Dlvcrty wns
a poor fifth with 4500.
Several causes have been ascribed by
political wiseacres for the defeat of
Moore, who at the last election was tho
high man on the O. O. P. ticket. One
of these is that he was beaten because
of hU "wet" stand, which took from
him hundreds of women's votes. An
other reason seen is his failure to re
peat the energetic campaign which had
much to do with his success last year.
Despite the spectacular campaign
waged by his rival, Cnptnln niter
Firth won hnndily over Harry Harold,
who Is reputed to have spent n large
sum of money in his effort to win the
Republican nomination for sheriff.
Firth, whose financial expenditures
were extremely modest, gained a plu
rality of more than 2000 in the city and
more than held his own In the rural
districts. His total vote throughout the
county was (18.10. while Harold, who
has had a large fleet of automobiles at
his disposal since the start of the cam
paign, got only 7112 votes. Frank IC.
drove wns third with 3122.
Soldier Wins Nomination
Another surprise wns disclosed in
the Republican freeholder contest when
Sergeant Jnmcs I luring, nn overseas
veteran who was wounded several
times in France, landed ns high mnn
with n total vote of S.iiOrt. Harlng de
veloped strength rapidly within the
lust few days nnd one of his cam
paign stunts was publication of nn ad
vertisement in which prominent party
leaders were quoted ns favoring him
for the berth. One of those quoted
was Newton A. K. Rugbee. state
comptroller, who In n statement yes
terday sold the use of his name was
unauthorized ns lie did not know Hnr
ing nnd moreover had not voted for
him. Charles Y Harlow, another Re
publican worker, nlso stated he had
given Harlng no Indorsement. Ulincr
Margerum, regarded ns the organiza
tion's candidate, nosed out William M.
Petit for the county board nomina
tion. Mnrgernm's total vote was 7,
173 nnd Fetit's 7,020. Frnncis A.
Crnwford. seeking to succeed himself,
mustered but B,7l)tt votes. Clayton
Kents nnd IMwnrd B. Vnn Note nlso
Aside from the congressional fight
. The unexpected victory of Alexnnder
I. Herrinn over Charles H. Cole was
the only thing of Interest In the Demo
cratic freeholder contest. Rcrrlnn
received 3052 votes nnd Chnrles II.

the countv lost out in the city balloting.
Silas R. Rrny. Harold J. Stout nnd
William It. Moore nro the Republican
nomlnres for coroner, nnd Urny, who
was high man, polled the extraordi
narily high vote of 11.(521. The Demo
erotic nominees nrc John A. Hnrtman,
IMwnrd J, Foley nnd Jnmcs J. A,
Tnllon, who had no opposition.
between Terence Hughes' nnd Mayor
Cliorles Ilrowne, of Princeton, there
wns little Interest developed- by the
Democratic primaries. Organization
candidates generally were nominated,
but the tremendous vote polled by the
Republican candidates, who It Is esti
mated gathered two-thirds of the total
woman s vote cast, mnkes their
chances for success nt the general elec
tion extremely doubtful.
Farley Is Easy Winner
Democratic Interest centered chiefly
In the shrievalty fight which Cas won
easily by Andrew W. Farley, who had
the backing of the county machine. Ills
vote wns 4247, while his opponent,
IMwnrd M. Reading, gained only 1000.

man, wns high man on the Assembly

FROST DID LITTLE DAMAGE
Weather Bureau Says State Cropa
Are Maturing Well
The Weather Iturcau has Issued the
following (tynopsia of weather nnd crop
conditions in Pennsylvania for tho
week ending September 28, 1020:
"The week was very favorable for
maturing crops, throughout the state,
Frosts occurred locally nt the close of
some of the more exposed regions of
the state, particularly In valleys In the
more elevated sections, but the, damage,
was not extensive. As compared with
the ordinary seasSh It ennnot be said
to have been unusual. Corn Is qulo
genet ally well enough matured to bo
beyond danger of Injury by frost, al
though It is fully two weeks later than
usual In Its developments this year.
Silos nro being filled nnd some corn
has been out and put In shocks. Prepa
ration for fall seeding has been under
way for somo time nnd the sowing of
wheat is now In full progress.
-UPotnlo digging is being rapidly
pushed, The yield Is generally good.
The State College correspondent reports
Hint potatoes nrc selling locally at.
-seventy-five cents a bushel. The ex
ccsslvo rainfall of a few weeks ago
caused many potatoes to' rot In the
grounds, especially in the central part
of tho state,"

Torrington' Vacuum Cleaner e
A FTER a thorough investigation into all
the better vacuum cleaners, wn have
selected the Torrington as moat worthy of
a place among our Duco Products. This
because the Torrington, though light and
easily handled, is powerful and strong,
and has special features which we believe
fit it best for all-around cleaning purposes.

in the Train
Even before a locomo
tive is attached to the train,
you push the button in your
Pullman berth and the light
flashes on. Have you ever
wondered what supplied
the current for the lights ?
Storage batteries do. These
batteries are charged by an
axle generator when the
train is in motion. The first
car-lighting battery ever
made was an Exide Battery.
Just as, in the automobile
field, the first starting and
lighting battery ever made
was an Exide.
It is hardly an exaggera
tion to say that every im
portant step in the develop
ment of the storage battery
since the beginning of the
industry has been made by
the manufacturers of the
Today, the Exide is used
for propelling a majority of
the world's submarines
under water; for reserve
power in nearly all central
power and lighting stations
of our great cities; for cur
rent in the telephone sys
tem; for motive power in
street trucks and mine
locomotives in fact,
every industry where de
pendable and lasting power
is needed. Back of every
Exide is the experience and
resQurces of the oldest and
largest manufacturers in
the world of storage bat
teries for every purpose.
