Harrisburg Buys Brown;
New Men Report to Utica
Harrisburg has purchased J. Donald
Brown, of the New York Americans, to
play with the local team. Brown is a
left fielder and it is said will probably
be sold at tho close of the season.
Brown has been playing with the team
for several weeks, but the club was
only notified of the deal last night.
Several other purchases are contem
plated.
Thomas V. Bryant, a former Cornell
pitcher, reported to Utica to-day. He
has been under contract with Utica all
season, but failed to report.
Reed, a third baseman, of Harris
burg, and Buck, a pitcher, of Utica,
were both suspended. Chick Farrell.
who has been ill at Scranton, will
probably take part in the series with
Utica, starting here to-day.

Smith Shop by the score of 1 to 0,
Planing Mill came back strong yester
day and defeated the Smith Shop in a
one-sided game by the score of 9 to 1,
the Planing Mill taking advantage of
the Smith Shop's weakness in the field
by scoring nine runs on five hits.
"Patsy" Finfrock pitched his usual
good game for the mill and after the
first inning was never in trouble, at
the same time striking out three men
and allowing only four scattered hits.
Gilday was wild, walking three men.
His support was of a ragged nature.
Bricker's fielding. Lutz's two base

ARMSTRONG TAKES TEN NIS LEAD
Boston, Mass., July 29. Clarence J.
Griffin, of San Francisco, who won an
unlooked for victory over H. Xorris
Williams, 2d, of Philadelphia, former
national tennis champion, in the early
stages of the Longwood singles play,
was himself the victim of a sensational
upset in the fourth round of the tourna
ment, yesterday.
Griffin was defeated by J. J. Arm
strong, of Philadelphia, in five sets, 6-3,
3-6, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. Armstrong's well
rounded game was more than a match
for the Californian's smashing tactics,
and the Philadelphian's well-placed
drive repeatedly caught Griffin out ot
position.

FOOBS'TS?"
AMAZING BUT RARELY SUSPECTED
TRUTHS ABOUT THE THINGS YOU EAT
By ALFRED W. McCANX
CHAPTER 89
Ridiculous objections arc advanced by
commercial defenders of denatured
' bread and cereal foods through the
declaration that such foods "will not
keep." Of course they "will not
keep." Nature intends food to lie
consumed, not to be kept. Meat,
butter, eggs, milk, fruits, vegetables
"will not keep" unless the operation
of Nature's laws are suspended, as
in the case of preserved l'oods.
Nevertheless, all whole grain foods
WIIX keep. The way to keep tlieni
is described here.
"But," says the enemies of the
bread-and-cereal reform movement,
"when we talk to the cereal dealer or
the miller about natural breakfast
foods, natural whole wheat meal, un
degerminated corn, unpearled barley,
and natural brown rice they tell us
that it is impossible to successfully
market breakfast foods, whole meat
meal, or any of the other grains in
their natural state, because in such
state they become stale and spoil, or
during the hot, germinating months
are subject to weevil infestation."
The dealer declares that when the
housekeeper buys a stale package in
fested with weevils, moths, or webs
she forthwith condemns the product
| as a class and will have nothing more
to do with it henceforth, forever.
These are extraordinary objections.
The attitude of the cracker baker, the
coffee roaster, the egg dealer, the
milk man, and the bread man reveals
the worthlessnes3 of such objections.
Crackers, coffee, eggs, milk, bread,
and butter are equally perishable
products. They, too. become stale or
rancid with age, but the dealer does
not therefore refuse to put them on
the market or to convert them into
pofitable business.
The coffee man, knowing that his
coffee begins to deteriorate the very
day it leaves the roasting machine,
sees to it that when roasted it reaches
the housekeeper as soon as possible
thereafter. He resorts to all sorts of
hermetically sealed packages to keep
it fresh and fragrant.
The cracker baker sees to it that
his crackers reach the housewife
fresh and crisp, and the bread man
makes arrangements to have his
bread reach her while it is fresh.
Coffee, bread, eggs, milk and but-
HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH
ISLANDERS HOME
FOR LONG SERIES
Divide Honors With Utica in
Final Games of Scries;
Huenke Stars
Harrisburg is home for a week's stay
unless the schedule undergoes another
change. Utica starts a series to-day
and will be followed by Syracuse. The
game this afternoon was preceded
with a battle royal between the Harris
burg Motive Power team and-the Tren
ton contenders for the Pennsylvania
Railroad League pennant contenders.
Owing to the inability to play two
games to-day there will be a double
header on Monday.
Pitcher Huenke was a big star in the
final series at Utica yesterday. He
won his first game, score, 1 to 0; and
lost the second, 2 to 0. The Utes an
nexed but six hits in the two games.
Harrisburg's sensational fielding was
again in evidence and the pace set by
the Cockill crew made the Utica bunch
move fast.
Mills Hits Timely
Mills drove in tho winning run in
the ninth inning. Harrison reached
first on an error, and went to second
on a sacrifice by Downey. Harrisburg
lost an opportunity in the eighth in
ning of the first game, but the hidden
ball trick was worked on Wheat.
Ring held Harrisburg without a hit
for six innings in the second. Only IS
men faced him. Cook started the
seventh with a pass, but there was
nothing doing, Utica having annexed
two runs early and cinched the game.

ter, because they are perishable, are
handled accordingly.
Whole wheat will keep for years.
So will whole barley, whole corn,
whole oats, and whole rice. These
grains do not spoil until they are
ground. Then they spoil during the
hot. germinating months.
The Bureau of Entomology, United
States Department of Agriculture,
has gone to considerable trouble to
discover the processes whereby nat
ural brown rice may be kept free from
weevil infestation.
It is the old story repeated. Man,
in his vain attempt to improve upon
the wise provisions of Mother Na
ture, usually succeeds in achieving
failure.
The scientist is puzzled indeed when
he is obliged to begin in the middle
and work in both directions at the
same time.
Science will probably find no means
for preventing the weevil from attack
ing natural brown rice. Nature has
already provided this means and
science up to this writing spurns na
ture's device.
In order to protect rice from the
season of its growth to the season
when it is consumed nature covers
it with a hard shell in which it keeps
indefinitely.
Thousands of yeirs ago Pharaoh
took notice of this fart, and for the
benefit of his people stored rice in the
granaries of Egypt, permitting the
grain to remain in the shell in which
nature had placed it.
Not rice alone, but wheat, corn, and
barley were held unwinnowed, some
times for years, to provide against
famine.
The suggestion of the United States
Department of Agriculture that nat
ural brown rice be treated with the
fumes of hydrocyanic acid was un
known to the stewards of ancient
Egypt. Yet they kept their grains
intact until needed for the food of
man.
Nowadays we winnow nil our rice in
a heap, thereby exposing it to the
attacks of insects against which na
ture has protected tt with a shell.
Man places a shell in the form of
a glass bottle, a glass jar, or a tin
•can around any animal or vegetable
product which he wishes to protect
from the attack of living organisms.
He knows that if he removes this

world, redeemed himself with a ven
geance here last night at the Washing
ton Sporting Club, when he outpointed
Benny Leonard, the Pride of Gotham,
in ten hard rounds.
The veteran title holder displayed
much better form than in his previous
bout with Leonard, which was won by
the latter. Welsh was aggressive
throughout last night's, fight and never
gave Leonard a chance to get set and
bring- across his heavy punches.
Leonard got away to a good start,
but the wise veteran saved his strength
for a grand finish and he earned the
honors by a narrow margin.
Previous to the start of the bout
Charlie White, the Chicago star, who
meets Welsh in a bout to a decision on
Labor Day in Colorado, was intro
duced, and the bis crowd gave him a
warm welcome. Welsh weighed In at
pounds, while Leonard scaled
132 M.

Veteran outfielder of the Athletics, is

and running bases with considerable
success. He is the "pep" member of
the Athletic machine.
SALE OF BARONS HELD UP
Wilkes-Barre, Pa.. July 29. Just
about the time that Sheriff George F.
Buss was ready to conduct a sale of
the Wilkes-Barre Club, of the New
York State League, a restraining order
came from the United States District
Court which temporarily delayed the
sale. Minority stockholders had fore
closed a judgment and sought to oust
Peter Noonan from control as manager
and president. Noonan pulled a sur
prise by going into bankruptcy. Fol
lowing this act came a restraining
order, which delayea the sale until th«
bankruptcy proceedings are disposed
of. President John H. Parrell was here,
but he declared that the baseball situa
tion is not greatly muddled.

I artificially constructed 6hcll from his

: If we really desire uncontaminated
| oatmeal free from rancidity, unde
! germinated cornmeal, sweet, whole
j some, and flavorful, whole wheat meal
| containing bran, red dog and germ,
unpearlcd barley or natural brown
! rice, we- must not prepare a year's
i supply In advance.
The secret of keeping these grains
sweet and wholesome Is to prepare
them at reasonable intervals. By
grinding more frequently in smaller
i quantities and dating our product we
may bring it to the people as nature
intended it to be used.
The mere fact that large sums of
money have been invested in great
business enterprises for profit should
not impose upon the world any ever
lasting obligation to eat denatured
breakfast food and lifeless bread in
order that the breakfast food factory,
the miller, and the baker may declare
larger dividends.
As the coffee man, the cracker man,
the egg man, the butter man, and the
milk man have solved their problems,
so. too, the world asks that its grain
problem be solved.
Let not the overcoat which nature
throws about the seeds of the grasses
of the field, thus protecting them
from rain, dust, and decay, be re
moved until the people are ready to
eat.
When tho wir-dom of this advice is
seen the great American bread eater,
the child of the poor, will have stur
dier limbs, rosier cheeks, brighter
eyes, and a happier heart. Perhaps
also there will be fewer cases of that
dread affliction of children and adults
—infantile paralysis.

JULY 20, 1916.
WELLY'S k CORNER
President J. H. Farrell of the New
York State League denies that the or
ganization is shaky because of poor
attendance at games. He calls atten
tion to the class of games plaked all
over the circuit; the pace being set by
Harrisburg; and adds that the fran
chises are too valuable to permit a
quitting game at this time.
•It is probable that wise heads will
get together for tho rejuvenation of
the New York State League. If the
game is to be made popular new rules
will have to be made. The schodule is
a badly mussed up affair and rather
costly to some teams. It is also irreg
ular in that it gives some teams more
games. With two new towns a prob
ability an opportunity will be af
forded for needed changes in the con
duct of the affairs of the league.
Harrisburg's work has brought local
