Lancaster County Jail Is Unfit, Says Jury I-ancaster, Pa., Nov. 22. —The Lan caster, county jail is still inadequate for the safekeeping of prisoners, ac- to the report of the grand jury presented to court yesterday. Following the escape of the three long-term prisoners, Gerner, Langer and Hurst, and the murder by Gar ner of a young girl, the prison in spectors made a number of improve ments, which, it was said, would be sufficient to keep the prisoners from going over the wall, but they did not conform in full with the recommen dations of tile .State Hoard of Chari ties. Protest was made against the lack of adequate changes, but with no avail. The grand jury in its report said that tliS jail is at present not prop erly equipped to retain prisoners. ■ Standing of the Crews HARRISBI RG SIDE I'hlindrlphla Division The 113 crew tlrst to go after 3 o'clock: 110.

Watts, superintendent of war gardens, whose report has just been made public by • the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce. This total production is an increase of $2.000 over that of last year, he states. Pro ducts taken from the adult lots amounted to $4,620; from the school lots, $4,864. A vast amount of truck also was raised on gardens privately manftged and in the backyards of the city. Tito preparation of the lots was begun March 18 and 42 acres were plowed and harrowed ft>r garden plots. The acreage was divided in to ihe following plots; Bellevue, 420; Nineteenth and IPaxton streets, 432; Reel and Wieo litsco streets, 28; Ileel and Division streets, 37; Twenty-third and Brookwood streets, 65; Sixth and Forater streets, 21; Curtin and Jef ferson streets, 78; Hoffman's Woods, 67; Fifteenth and Vernon streets, 30. In addition, one and one-half acres were under cultivation at Nine teenth und Holly streets for the Children's Industrial Home. Four acres at Seventeenth street and the Pennsylvania railroad were plowed, harrowed and fertilized for the As sociated Charities, in addition to Ave acres for the same organization at 'Fifteenth and Herr streets, extend !lng as far as the Arsenal. Eight ncres at Bellevue were planted in yellow corn because adults did not claim all the ground allotted to them. School Board Mny Help Touching on the tlnnncinl side, Su perintertdent Watts reports a balance of $762.70. An appropriation of $2,- 000 from the Chamber of Commerce and another of S7OO from the Com mittee of Public Safety, plus other receipts made a total of moneys re ceived amounting to $3,189.75. Ex penditures, including salaries, plow ling, fertilizing, printing and other i expenses, amounted to $2,427.05. A decrease of expenses amounting to $522.63 was noted. A charge of $1.50 was made to adults to partially cover the cost of fertilizing and plowing the ground. In every section of the city where war gardens were available the land was quickly disposed of, save in the Bellevue Park section where the t>lots-were not all taken. Here it was necessary to give it to one per son, to avoid wasting the land, and ibis was put into yellow corn. The size of the lots for children was 25 by 25 feet, and that of the adults 25 by 50 feet. James Sm.vser acted as assistant supervisor for the Cham ber of Commerce. Acting as su pervisors for the school board were Messrs. Ferguson, Maehen, Keiper, Harlacher and Thomas. The salaries of these last named supervisors was paid by the school board. In closing his report, the super intendent says: "There is a movement on foot by the Harrisburg school board to man age their own lots next year. Upon taking this matter up with Doctor Downes he, stated that they felt that due to the paying of the salaries of the supervisors of the school gar dens, that the school board was not getting sufficient credit for the money which they were' spending and that next year they would con duct their own gardens. We stated to Doctor Downes that we could not see why they did not get credit for the work which they had done and that in our reports and newspaper articles we had always mentioned them particularly and had given them credit for any produce which they raised. It seems thut after two years of preparation of this land and the large amount of money which the Chamber of Commerce has spent to encourage the school children lo raise vegetables to aid in the war, that school board pro position is unfair. As you will no tice from the list of expenses that they had under cultivation within five acres as much land ns the adults, in other words the preparation of the land cost as much as that of the Chamber of Commerce within a few hundred dollars. It is understood that they expect the Chamber of Commerce to furnish the plowing und fertilizing for next season as they have no money to take care of the preparation of this ground. The superintendent earnestly hopes that the garden movement will not be discontinued as the above figures show the value of this work and in reference to school children we wisli to suggest that they espe cially continue this line of work and think that the proper way in which it should be handled would be for the school board to have the chil dren work on these lots a certain period each day and have it con sidered a part of their education and receive marks on it flic same as any other study. This will bo the only way they can control the children and then it will develop into a sys tem which is worth while." POLICE SEEK AN INCREASE IN PAY [Continued front First Page.] T tion has no intention of attempting to enforce its desires.

Mayor Kelster- agreed with the policemen tnat their request for $125 a month is not unreasonable in view of present conditions. He sutd this morning that the request will be taken into account when the 1919 budget Is made up. He said, however, that an increase of $25 for the policemen would be hard' to secure, and that it might not be expedient to ask for it at this time. It Would entail an increase in the payroll of $1,775 monthly, or $21,300 annually. He wab hopeful, however, that something could be done to give the policemen a comfortable in crease in salary. Pension Idea Growing Nothing definite has been done to secure the hoped for pension for the policemen. There is a growing, sen timent in police, official and unoffi cial circles that the policemen, who give the best years of their lives in service of the city, are deserving of some recognition in the form of a pension when they are no longer able to perform active sen-ice. There are men on the police force who have served more than twenty five years. Mat Ask legislature The desire for a pension, system has grown with the inauguration of the civ'i service system lor police men. which assures an. able police man a posif.on for life. It is felt that with the promise'of a pension at the end of a long period oDactlve service, the stimulus for good men to join the force wtl lbe increased. Mayor Keister said this morning I there undoubtedly would be action to secure pensions for the police men. He could not hazard a guess as I to how it would come about, but was certain the city would in time do its part. The Legislature, he j thought, would take measures to secure the pension for the patrol men, ' , To Organize Lobby Herman Kautz. president of the Fraternal Order of Police, declared that there is no doubt that the po lice deserve and desire a. pension. He said that the Fraternal Order of Police is so young that it has not had a chance to determine what can be done tp secure pensions, but as it was formed primarily for the purpose of bettering the conditions of the patrolmen, the subject natur ally would be taken up. It was said this morning that the Order of Police will be aided by the Fraternal Order of Police of the First and Second class cities, which have secured state legislation giving policemen of the first and second class cities, generous pen sions. A lobby committee will be maintained at the State Legislature by the new organization, it was said, to secure the desired pension. It is commonly conceded that when a pension, does come, it psrobably will be primarily through the stute Legislature. SAVE YOUR ill - AND BEAUT Flf I WIN "OANOEDir Spend a few cents! Dandruff disappears and hair stops coming out. I Try this! Hair gets beautiful, wavy and thick in few moments. If you care for heavy hair, that glistens with beauty and is radium with life; has an incomparable soft-! ness and is fluffy ana lustrous, try Danderine. Just one application doubles the beauty of your hair, besides it imme diately dissolves every particle of dandrufl; you cannot have nice, heavy, healthy hair if you have dan druff. This destructive scurf robs the hair of its luster, its strength and its very life, and if not overcome it produces a feverishness and itching of the scalp; the hair roots famish, loosen and die; then the hair falls out fast. If your hair has been neglected and is thin, faded, dry, scruggy or too oily, get n small bottle of Knowiton's Danderine at any drug store or toilet counter for a few cents; apply a little as direated, and ten minutes after you will say this was the best in vestment you ever made. We sincerely believe, Regardless of everything else advertised, that if you desire soft, lustrous, beautiful hair and lots of it—no dandruff—no itcb ig scalp and no more falling hair— you must use Knowiton's Danderine. if eventually—why not now?— Adv. Says His Prescription Has Powerful Influence Over Rheumatism Discoverer Tells Druggists Not to Take a Cent of Anyone's Money Un less Allenrhu Completely Unnlsbes All Rheumatic Pnlns and Tnlnßes. Mr. James 11. Allen BufTered for years with rheumatism. Many times this terrible disease left him helpless and unable to work. He finally decided, after years of ceaseless study, that no one can be free from rheumatism until the ac cumulated impurities, commonly call ed uric acid deposits, were dissolved in the Joints and muscles and ex pelled from the body. With this idea in mind he consulted physicians, made experiments and finally compounded a prescription that quicklv and completely banished every sign and symptom of rheumatism from his system. i He freely gave his discovery to others who took it. with what might be called marvelous success. After years of urging lie decided to let suf ferers everywhere know about his discovery through the newspapers. G. A. Gorgas can supply you.
