There Is an unex pected abundance of potatoes in Ger many, according to a statement made to the budget committee of the relchstng by Secretary of the Interior Del brueck The explanation, he said, was the great economy practiced because of the under-estlmate of the supply at the be ginning of the war. The imperial bu reau of potato supply has distributed over 10.OCO.000 hundredweight to munici palities, stnrch factories, and distillers. Heir Delbrueck stated also that there tvns a balance of T.ono.ooi) double hun dredweight from tbe previous gram crop, to which muJt be added probably lOO'Xl.OOO double hundredweight from the npw crop. Thn prospects for a supply of meat are satisfactory, and a normal quantity of sugar has been obtained for the coming- year. EGOS Nearby, fresh, 210220 per doten; Southern, 20321c per dozen.

Has Haunted House. LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19. Haunted houses may be all right In novels, but when they pop up in real life they are apt to be a bit of a bore. One of the prettiest bungalows in the Pasadena avenue neighborhood got the name of being haunted. Tenants said the spirit of Dr. Mills, spiritualist, who perished In the Titanic disaster, kept them awake nights by pounding on the walls. After (scoffing, the landlord slept In the house two nights. Then he ordered It torn down and rebuilt.
