Would Not Carry President Until
Orders Had Been Given
to Do So
Special to The Telegraph
New York, Nov. 16.—President Wil
son wound up his week-end visit to
New York yesterday afternoon with a
Haroun-al-Kaschid experience, over
which he was laughing heartily when
his train left the Pennsylvania station.
The President decided to pay a brief
visit to Mrs. Anna Wilson Howe, his
sister, who has apartments at Eigh
tieth street and Columbus avenue.
Miss Anderson, one of the proprietors
of the apartment house, has had diffi
culty in impressing upon the elevator
boys that no callers shall be taken up
until they have first been announced
to the guests. Miss Anderson reproved
W. Higgins, a West India boy, saying:
"Understand now, Higgins, no one is
to be taken up until he has been an
nounced; no one, understand, not even
the President of the United States."
Yesterday afternoon two distin
guished looking gentlemen, followed
by several alert young men, entered
and walked directly to the elevator.
Higgins promptly intercepted them.
"De rule is foh t' 'nounce all gem'-
men first," he said.
"Very well," replied the taller of the
two callers. "Just say to Mrs. Howe
'that Mr. Wilson is calling."
Higgins turned toward the telephone
when one of the young men halted
"It's all right boy," he said. "This is
the President of the United States."
Higgins looked the party over, bow
ed and replied:
"Don't make no diff'rence. Boss. Mis'
Anderson say even de President ob de
United States got to be 'nounced first."
The President burst, into a hearty
laugh, in which he was joined by Colo
nel House, his companion.
"That is perfectly right, my boy,"
he said.

Waynesboro, Ta., Nov. 16.—0n Sat
urday morning the first fatality of
j the deer season occurred near Tond

I Anton Kohlbeck, of Pittsburgh, un
j married and aged 37 years, was acci

ter's rifle which was resting on his
knees, was discharged. The bullet

"Owing to Germany's decreasing ex
ports to Scandlnevia," says the Dally
Chronicle's Copenhagen correspondent,
"the rate of exchange recently drop
ped over five per cent. Germany there

Mercury Due to Drop to 25 De
grees by Night According
to Forecast
Ilarrisburg and vicinity are due for
the coldest weather of the season be
fore midnight if the weather man's
predictions materialize.
Some real overcoat weather has
been handed out from time to time
during the last several jweeks, but
nothing quite so severe as twenty-five
degrees has been on the books as yet.
| And twenty-five degrees is what "the
local forecaster says is on the way for
Harrisburg to-night.
Somewhere over the western sec
tion of the United States, it seems,
there is a high pressure area or
something and it's coming eastwardly
like the wind. So from all indica
tions. it will take quite a fall out of
the thermometer mercuries.
Sunday, by the way, was a day in a
class by itself, too. It rained ail day
and then some—to the extent of one
and three-hundredths inches. That
rain nil fell in fifteen hours and this
established quite a little record of its
own. The rain was a boom to the
squads of forest firefighters through
out this section, too; it gave 'em all
a chance to go home and rest up a
bit. The rains practically extinguished
the more serious mountain blazes.

Binghamton, N. Y., Nov. 16.—The

Up Around the $1,600 Mark Just
a Week After the Telegraph
Began to Take in Money
It is just a week since the Harris
burg Telegraph offered to send to the
committee of Philadelphia newspapers
engaged in raising funds to buy food
to ship to starving Belgians any money
which might be contributed in this city
and vicinity. Since that time approxi
mately $1,600 has gone across the
counters of the Telegraph business
office and each night the funds have
been wired to Philadelphia.
Philadelphia has invited the whole
state, New Jersey and Delaware to
unite in help filling the Thanksgiving
ship with food and there is great need
j for money. The people of this com
munity have responded nobly, but
rriore money is needed.
Children Give
Among the gifts which it gives the
Telegraph pleasure to acknowledge to
night is $1 from ten little West End
girls. They each gave up a dime from
their pocket money.
