Harrisburg, Pa.
! Cars larger and better than those
I heretofore operated and embodying
1 various features lor safety, comfort,
j and sanitation, are being placed in
service in the New York subways.
! They are of steel construction and
| built a foot wider and 16 ft. longer
' than former cars, providing seating
; capacity for TS persons and auxiliary l
accommodations for a score more.
: The cars are described in the October
! Popular Mechanics Magazine as fol
j lows:
I ' The interior ot the cars is finished
|in white enamel. The floor is made of
I cement Composition which allows it to
:be flushed and thoroughly washed at
the end of a run. Posts replace the
proverbial straps, while the seats are
i especially designed for comfort. In
| making these, the measurements of a
i large number of persons were taken
: in order to determine a pattern which
; would best suit the requirements of
j the average New Torker.
"Platforms have been eliminated.
! Three double doors, facilitating the
| loading and unloading, are arranged
Jon each side. These are operated
j electrically and controlled by a guard
! stationed at the middle entrance. A
j train cannot be started until each door
lis closed and locked, at which time
jthc tnotorman is signaled automatic-
ally. An emergency lighting system,
j receiving current from storase batter
,; ies. is put in operation when contact
I with the third rail is broken or the
j regular power temporarily cut oft."
"Certain cartoonists," says a writer
jin Cartoons Magazine, "have been
• j taken to task for picturing with too
i alluring a pencil the joys of going
i barefoot in summer, of hunting In
t dians. of climbing apple trees, when
•! they should have b.een In school study
! ing. Their work is an invitation to
j the small boys to play truant, es
| pecially when the birds are singing
11 and the sun is shining, and a dog com
! panion clamors for an excursion over
1 ! hill and dale. Enter the plea 'Guilty.'
! "Who would care to be the owner of
1 \ a small boy who, when the red gods
' called; wouldn't follow; who wouldn't
1 j occasionally steal away from school
I and come back bramble-scratched and
i sunburned? Any boy whose name is
Johnnie, and not Archibald or Ferdi
' nand. will need no invitation to run
after the pied piper of happiness, and
seek relief from the eternal three R's
i under the willows or in forbidden
! apple orchards. Given a golden day,
the smell of summer in the air, a
south wind, and the drone of bees—
well, a schoolroom, no more than iron
■ bars, can a prison make. Nobody but
> an old-fashioned schoolmaster would
expect a 'feller' to be proper—always."

The dominant tone of the decora
tions Is Ivory and rooms which were
florid, to say the least, in the old
scheme has been treated with grays
and whites with rugs in accord, the
general effect being more of a private
home, while the huge mahogany stair
case in the front hall has given way to
a simple colonial affair which adds im
mensely to the general appearance of
the entrance. The light mahogany of
the dining room has been stained the
traditional mahogany color and
throughout the house the color scheme
has been much toned down, while old
heavy furniture of design in keeping
has been replaced by new of lighter
form and shades. Considerable of the
old official flavor to the furniture and
decoration has disappeared.
Bulletins for Farmers. Over 150
bulletins covering nineteen general
subjects with a large miscellaneous
list are made available for public dis
tribution by the new bulletin of the
State Department of Agriculture which
j has just been issued. It is the most
elaborate list ever issued by a State
department and covers a very wide
range, the bulletins being by experts.
The general classification is on soils,
including a survey of every county;
fertilizers, lime, corn, wheat, alfalfa,
tobacco. fruit, market gardening,
dairyiftg, beef productions, cattle di
seases, poultry, swine, sheep, horse
breeding, domestic science, farm sani

Fined For Pollution. The Bare
company, one of the largest in Blair
county, has been fined by a magistrate
at Tyrone on the charge of polluting
streams. Blair county sportsmen got
company on the ground that
it was killing fish.

complaint of the Delaware River Steel
company, which operates a blast fur
nace at Chester, against the Pennsyl
vania and the Philadelphia, Baltimore
and Washington railroads, involving
demurrage charges. The opinion filed
by Commissioner Monaghan holds that
tlie acts complained of took place in
1913 or before the Public Service Com
pany law, under which the "commis
sioners operate, became effective, so
that it. is without power to order re
funds. It is understood that the case

Stees Wins Justice of Peace
Fight; Keim, Henderson,
Reynders on Top
Unanimously endorsed lor re-election
to Council.
The smoke of the most bitterly-fought
primary battle in Steelton's history has
cleared away. What was an unsolvable
political conundrum yesterday has been
reduced by the voters to a simple lit
tle problem solvable by most anyone.
Since the tabulation of yesterday's
vote it would be a comparatively sim
ple matter for anyone to name the men
who will be elected to office in Steel
ton on November 2. So overwhelmingly
i large was the Republican vote cast yes
terday that there is not even the slight- !
est chance for a Democrat or Pull .
Mooser to slip into office here. In fact !
yesterday's returns made it look as
though there weren't any voters except
Republicans in Steelton.
Strew 'Winn For Squire
In the Republican contest for justice
of the peace, the most sought-for of
fice. Frank A. Stees came out at the
head of the field with a majority of
167 votes over Fred Wigtteld, his near
est opponent. Stees ran heaviest in the
Second precinct of the Third Ward and
in the First Ward. Stees and Wigfield
led the Held with large margins.
Thomas Gardner, the present occupant
of this office, landed third place with
five votes more than O. P. Baskins, the
masquerading Democrat. Haines and
Sellers brought up the rear.
Stees, the Republican nominee, will
be opposed for the justiceship by O. P.
Baskins on the Democratic ticket. The
Washington party nomination went to
Fred Wigfield.
Helm, Hendernon, Hevmler*
The councllmanic without
exception, resulted as was predicted in j
the Telegraph a week ago. Charles E.
Keim is now the unopposed candidate
on all tickets from the First Ward. E.
C. Henderson In the Second Ward, and
J. V. W. Reynders on the Republican
ticket in the Third Ward.
E. C. Henderson ran far ahead of
Elmer Fiese for the. Republican nomi
nation and Harry F. Lupfer for the
Democratic nomination in the Second
Ward. He also landed the Washington
nomination and this means that he will
return to council without opposition.
In the Third Ward one of the largest
votes ever polled by any candidate was
given J. V. W. Reynders. On the Re
publican ticket Mr. Reynders. took the
nomination with 336 votes to the 71
polled by George R. Xauss and the 16
received by George Moten. Mr. Nauis,
howeVer. took the Democratic nomina
tion with 21 votes to Mr. Reynder's 16.
Mr. Reynder's election Is now assured
with a huge majority.
In the Fourth Ward H. A. Hartman
took the Republican nomination and
Robert Atticks the Democratic. T. T.
McEntee, a former burgess who was
running on both tickets, lost out all
around. The Fifth Ward Republican
nomination was copped by Michael
Obercash and the Democratic honors
went to Murray Hocker.
School Director Fight
The school directorship contest, over
which there was some misunderstand
ing. was won on the ReDUblican ticket
hy William H. Xell and John R. Reider,
Jr.. for the full terms and Samuel L.
Brehm for the 2-year term. H. Rus
sell Rupp with Nell and Brehm will
represent the Democratic party. Rupp
and Reider tied with nine votes each
for the Washington nomination accord
ing to unofficial returns.
The next high constable will be Levi
H. Still. If yesterday's vote can be taken
as any indication of the way things will
go in November. Still won the Repub
lictn nomination over six candidates.
Charles Carliaugh will oppose him on
the -Democratic ticket.
Countable Contests
The various constableship fights were
closely contested. In the First Ward
John H. Gibb won both the Republican
and Democratic nominations. Robert
Brashears took the Republican
nomination in the Second, and Thomas
Anderson landed the Democratic nom
ination. In the Third Ward Silas Rail
ev was renominated on the Republican
ticket over A. P Bomgardner, now
high constable: Clinton Jones, a form
er patrolman, and John Wood. In the
Fourth Ward George Lehr was renom
inated on both Republican and Demo
cratic tickets and in the Fifth Ward
Peter Day will again have the field to
. himself.
I TTarry C. Dick was unopnosed for the
Republican nomination for auditor.
Complete returns from Steelton will be
found In the various tables printed
elsewhere in the Telegraph.
O. C. Bishop was renominated for
treasurer of Swatara township yester
day on the Republican ticket. He had
an overwhelmin gmajority, assuring
his re-election in November. Mr.
Bishop had a total of 26* votes. Wil
loam Stephens had 4 4 votes and Mar
tin Zohl 56.
Mary Roland, 38 years old. died Sat
urady of heart disease at the State
hospital in Hollidaysburg, where she
was employed as a nurse. The body
has been taken to the home of her
brother, Joseph Roland at Oberlin,
where funeral services will be held
to-morrow afternoon.
The degree team of the Paxtang
Council of the Daughters of Pocohon
tas will give a chicken corn soup sup
per to-morrow noon and evening in
the Market house at Steelton. The
meals will be served at 12 o'clock noon
and 6 in the evening.
An Austrian cartoonist in a draw
ing reproduced in Cartpons Magazine,
has Uncle Sam playing a new role —
that of the devil. The scene is in a
haunted forest, near a waterfall. Owls
and skulls enhance the gloomy atmo
sphere. Russia is seen kneeling In
supplication to the diabolical figure
which stands on a ledge near the tor
rent. As the legendary Freischutz, he
is pleading for ammunition. Accord
ing to the story. Frelschutz. was a hun
ter who entered into a compact with
the evil one by which the latter was
to furnish hi mwith seven balls. Six
of these Invariably hit the mark, while
the seventh remained the property >f
the devil, who could direct it at his
pleasure. Japan, rather than the
United States, remarks the editor,
might more appropriately have been
made to represent the devil. ,

Helena Smith Dayton, who illus
trates her "Fall Fashions in Inter
views" with tiny caricatures in clay,
thus gives her impressions in Cartoons
Magazine of an interview with "Mary
Jane Butterfish." the brilliant young
author of "Almost—But Not Quite':
"She entered the room in a natural
manner that was wholly delightful.
She tripped on a rig. Naturalness. I
realized at a glance, was the keynote
of Mary Jane Butterfish's personal
" 'Where is the cat?" I inquired,
after the usual greeting.
" 'What cat?' demanded Miss But
" 'The cat that always figures so
cosily in the home life of women writ
ers; and the tea table, and the sweet
faced mother?"
" 'I haven't collected them, yet,' con
fessed the authoress. 'You see, fame
came so suddenly that I haven't added
all the "props." '
"That good old question, 'Where do
you get your ideas?' had to be asked,
or it wouldn't have been a first-class
" 'Why,' she said with a thoughful
smile. 'l'll tellyou a great secret—out
of my head!'
"This certainly was astonishing. It
ought to surprise many people who
have asked that question of artists and
writers. Mary Jane Butterfish had
confessed that, she got her ideas from
her own head and without the aid of
a corner policeman, the ashman or
the kindly and courteous young men
in theater box offices."
What a dissatisfied bunch of mortals
we are! Three hundred and sixty-flve
days of each year we giumbie ucuut

cold, too wet or too dry. You meet
a friend who says, "It's a fine day to
day!" You answer, "Delightful!" The
next one you meet says. "Ain't this
beastly weather?" You answer, "The
foulest ever!" You're always ready to

"Really to portray hoyhood," says
a writer in Cartoons Magazine, "ona
should have been brought up in a
small town.
"It is only in a small town 'that ona
can fly kites successfully. Here, too.
are backyard paradises, often with
possibilities in buried treasure. Hera
one can operate tincan-and-strin?
telephone systems, or navigate a rait
during the Spring floods. It is in tho
small town that circuses are heralded
by pink handbills and gorgeous post
ers on the wagon sheds and billboards,
and are seen finally in all their glory
of street parades and pink lemonade.
Here the small boy has an opportunity
of carrying water to the elephant, or
lacking that, at least to sneak in un»

that the writer, however, doesn't en-'
courafte. Here is situated the beloved
