Onions, a carload of them owned
by W. C. Walker, former general
manager of the California Fruit Ex

ern Railway tracks. They have been
there a week. If a city market was
running Walker says he would throw
his onions in there and people could

products under the reckless, varying
prices fixed by retailers."

watching the chimney of the sistine

the Sacred College have cast a ballot

In accordance with the ceremonies

in the sistine chapel for the first
count or scrutiny of the ballot.
