Costs $15,000 Daily to Fight
Flames in Montana
and Idaho
By Associated Press.
Spokane. Wash., July 19.—Rac
ing over mountain ridges of Western
Montana and Northern Idaho, forest
fires which have been burning for more
than a week early to-day continued to
spread destruction and threatened sev
eral small towns which have been sev
ered by the flames from communication
with the United States Forest Service
headquarters at Missoula. Mont.
The fire near Henderson, Mont.,
lumped the mountains into the Mullan
Gulch country where there is said to
be practically no opportunity to stop
It. The fire near St. Regis. Mont
crossed the Clark Fork River and late
to-day was spreading unchecked over
a large area.
Only with favorable weather condi
tions is there any possibility of con
trolling the flames, district forest serv
ice officials said.
It is costing the Federal forest serv
ice $15,000 daily to fight the fires in
this district, it was said, besides the
damage done to valuable timber and
other property.

as they have the nerve to boost.
Later consumers take over this pro
duce without question under the im
pression that they are getting the
average market price."
Farmers Discourage Consumer
"But this is not all," said the
same indignant citizen. "Farmers
bring wagonloads of truck to the
markethouses and sell to the fore
stalled at a price considerably less
than the figures which they ask of
the individual buyers. In fact, they
discourage the consumer and make
no secret of the fact that they favor
the chap who is there for the pur
pose of profiting at the expense of
the consumers who have been under
the impression that all are favored
with the same price for the same
kind of produce. This applies to
vegetables and poultry and berries
at the present time."
Patrons Get No Chance
It is said that farmers and truck
ers frequently drive up to the mar
ket and without entering a stall or
making any pretense of selling to
the consumers deliver their stuff to
those who are waiting at the curb,
and who immediately drive away
from the market without giving the
market patrons a chance to pur
chase these supplies.
Farmers and others are said to
have threatened that any attempt to
stop these practices would result in
the producer remaining away from
market as a punishment to those
who might seek to prevent forestall
Of course, there are those who buy
on commission for individual house- •
keepers, who can hardly be accused
of forestalling These persons are
said to have a list of consumers who
engage them to purchase their week
ly supplies, allowing a commission
on the amount purchased at pre
vailing prices as compensation for
their services.
Point Out Remedy
Those who have watched the
flagrant forestalling abuses in the
city markets declare that the whole
practice could easily be stopped by
officers in plainclothes being on the
job when the markets are opened
and continuing their tours of the
stalls while the selling is in progress.
Berries sold' one place this morning
for 25 cents a quart and almost im
mediately the entire stock of the
farmer was taken over by a stall
renter from a remote section of the
market who immediately added a fat
profit in the reselling.
Boycott Tlircatened
A market boycott is threatened by '
some people to overcome the un- i
reasonable charges which are made 1
for fruits and vegetables and poul
try. So long as the alleged unjusti- j
fiable prices are paid the forestall- I
ing and skyrocketing will continue. I
but as in the case of meats during '
the war period when consumers \
were urged by Hoover to cut out '
meat and it was dropped from the j
average menu, the consumer losing
his appetite for meats of all kinds i
and the industry suffering accord- !
ingly. any boycott of certain classes I
of food would probably have a simi
lar result.
Consumer to Blame, Too
"However, there are those who
will pay any unfair price," said one I
consumer commenting upon the pro- ;
posed boycott, "and it would be
difficult to check sales and reduce |
demand while the consumer without i
a household budget gives up without 1
question the big prices now being
charged for fresh produce brought 1
from the suburbs of Harrisburg.'
ith respect to the Government 1
hoard of canned goods and meats at
New Cumberland and elsewhere, the >
municipal authorities believe there I
would be no advantage to the con- i
sumer in reselling these supplies ■
at the proposed wholesale figures
without substantial revision, inas
much as commission merchants in
this section are said to have quoted
figures which would compare favor- :
ably with the Government prices

: Surplus Property Division of the

2,915,293 pounds of roasting chick
ens, including both the corn fed and

idea of the amount of fancy poultry
available for consumption, the birds
weigh about an average of four to
four and a quarter pounds each, and

Where Cuts Are Possible
"The prices charged by most of
the fruit and vegetable stores are j
entirely out of line with the whole- I
sale values. Peaches are wholesaling J
for $1.50 and $2 for crates contain- j
ing 250 to 260 good sized peaches
and should not cost the consumer
over 2 cents apiece. Cantaloupe,
crates containing 45 to 5 4 melons,
are selling at $1.25 to $1.50 and
could be retailed at 4 to 5 cents each,
and California cantaloupes should
cost over 15 cents each, retail. Auto
mobile trucks are bringing in fancy
fresh lettuce, beans, peas and cab
bages from four adjoining States and
prices are extremely low. Lettuce
should not cost more than 3 to 3
cents a head: beans, 6 to 8 cents
a quart: cabbages, 10 to 15 cents a j
head onions, 6 to 8 cents a pound;
celery. 10 to 15 cents a root; toma- j
toes, 5 to 8 cents a pound; peppers,
2 to 3 cents each: cucumbers, 3 to
5 cents each: corn. 3 to 6 cents an
ear; romaine, 5 to 8 cents a head.
Finest New Jersey potatoes should
not cost consumers more than 6 to
S cents a pound. These prices rep
resent a very liberal profit to the j
retailers on the highest grades of I
vegetables, and desirable grades of I
these varieties can be sold at much I
lower prices."
Prices of fruits and vegetables at
the local markets to-day were prac
tically unchanged as compared with
those of the last few weeks.
Corn ranged from 30 to 50 cents
a dozen, but most of the ears were
undersized. Some few dealers with
fairly large ears were getting as
high as 60 cents a dozen. Berries
of all kinds seemed plentiful, but
the prices kept many housewives
from buying more than a box or
two. According to some dealers
there have been fewer sales of ber
ries in large quantities for canning
and- preserving than ever before.
The rains have interfered with the
berry crop, it was- said.
Raspberries were on sale at 25 to
30 cents a box, the red ones selling
for 30 cents at most of the stands.
Blackberries were 20 to 25 cents
and huckberries 22 to 25 cents.
Home-grown tomatoes in smaJl
boxes brought 20 cents. Some deal
ers asked 5 cents each for the larg
est ones, and 10 cents a box for
small shipped tomatoes. New pota- i
toes of medium size cduld be bought
for 15 to 18 cents a quarter peck,
while the larger ones brought 20
Beans, both green and yellow,
were plentiful. The farmers asked
from 8 to 10 cents a quarter peck
for them. Sugar peas were 15 cents
a box. Other peas were 25 cents a
Small cantaloupes were 3 for 2 5
cents, 10 and 15 cents each. Large
ones sold for 20 to 25 cents. Water
melons were 50 to 80 cents, halves
selling at 35 cents.
Baqanas were the same in price
as they have bee nfor the last six
months, fairly large ones selling at
30 and 35 cents and the largest at
40 cents a dozen. Peaches brought
15 cents a box. small size, and 30
cents a pan. Oranges ranged from
4 0 to 60 cents a dozen, and lemons
from 30 to 40 cents a dozen.
Eggs were 50 to 55 cents a dozen.

establish credit in Jugo-Slavia. The
new federation would sell products and
purchase for all its members. Introduce
modern machinery, gather the savings
of Emigrants and aid the farmers to

I. F. Lupis-Vukic. of Dalmatia, a

"The money sent home by immigrants
will be paid to home people in domestic

Radical Would Cut Profit
in Reducing Living Cost
To the Editor—Dear Sir: In the
j midst of the biggest crops, in a
panic of fear, the question is asked:
How would you cut living cost? The
I necessity for the question proves
I that society as organized is a failure.
I In fact, there is nothing in its or
ganism that offers any excuse for
its existence. Profit, the foundation
; on which modern society rests, is
; the sole cause of high cost. Elimi
| nate profit and you remove high
I cost. They are synonymous terms,
j Socialize all industry—production,
transportation and distribution, an
| nihilate our robber financial system,
every phase of it. Substitute certifi
cates of service, redeemable at
depots of distribution, at the hold-
I er's will and convenience. A recent
1 "investigation" showed the "cost"
of an average pair of shoes, about
an $S pair, was forty cents. Cost,
forty cents; profit. $7.60.
A Market street clothier adds 100
per cent, to his cost price. On the
basis of the shoes, a S4O suit would
be: Cost $2, profit S3B.
Very truly yours,
Harrisburg, July 19.
Would Have People Stay
Away From City Markets
To the Editor—Dear Sir: I will
tell you how to cut the high cost
of living. Let all the people remain
away from the market so that every
farmer will be obliged to take his
stuff back home. The prices will
drop in a jiffy and the farmer to j
whom a dollar looks as big as a car
wheel will be brought to his senses.

Cut Out Cold Storage,
Writes Franklin Co. Man
To the Editor—Dear Sir: The
only way to cut the high cost of
living is to pass a law to stop stor
ing food in cold storage. This will
stop the gougers. E. B.

Closing Chapter in History of
Pennsylvania Reserve Mili
tia at Mount Gretna
The Pennsylvania Reserve Militia
encampment at Mt. Gretna closed
this morning. The rain of the last
few days had made a veritable
swamp of the surrounding country,
and the roads resembled the lake
i more than highways. In spite of
I this however, the militiamen were in
rather high spirits at the thought
of returning home and with the
knowledge of duty well performed.
Marks Closing Chapter
To-day practically marked the
closing chapter in the history of the
Reserve Militia. Recruited and mus
tered in with the departure of the
regular National Guard units for
Camp Hancock in 1917, the organi
j zations of the Reserve Militia have
' acquitted themselves most credita
bly. In addition to guard and riot
duty, to which they were subject at
any time, the Militia performed
heroic service last fall with the out
break of the "flu" epidemic. Pressed
Into service as ambulance drivers,
nurses, grave diggers. everything
they could do was done with the
greatest devotion to service. Many
of them contracted the disease in
the performance of these duties anrl
' died.

I would see them mustered out with

of the service they have performed,
and expressed the hope that many
of them wold enlist in the new guard.
At a time when the Army was call

j the driver, Philip Houser, Mechan
i burg, by the way, and the pleasure
j of the trip ahead.
"Taking the air or 'hopping off
| in the aerial vernacular, has exact-
Ily the feeling of an automobile
| reaching a smooth road after a
j broken rough stretch. It is only
! when one sees that buildings and
j trees are below instead of along
j side that realization comes. A plane
J rides with a steady smooth motion
! uninfluenced by the passenger lean-
I ing far over the side of the car to
j look downward. It gives gently to
j the air currents like the responsive
springs of a fine car, the only objec
tionable features being the loud
roar of the unhooded engine, which
prevents speech, and the intense
I force of the wind which would make
I flying without goggles almost an im
"The terms 'aircraft' and 'airship'
are most expressive for I felt very
| much the way I have when off the
! coast in a fishing smack. Never
! having been troubled with seasick
| ne6s. I thoroughly enjoyed climbing
I the air pockets as if in a boat tak
j ing a heavy swell and settling into
them as into the trough of a wave.
Far below little men drove little
loads of hay along narrow white
ribbons of road between toy houses
which seemed the playthings of
children. With one eye on the alti
• tude gauge I turned to my pilot and
motioned that I preferred to climb
higher. He nodded and up, wave
by wave, we floated to a distance of
2,000 feet. The average passenger
never ascends above 1,200.
"One of the strangest feelings to
a novice is the consciousness of the
weight of air beneath buoying up
the plane just as a swimmer feels
the safety, la deep water, of the sus
taining power which floats him. We
were entirely out of sight of the
spectators we had left in the field
and the country lay like a beautiful
map beneath us. The rush of the I
air was cold but I could feel the I
heat of the sun on my hand where ;
it rested upon the padded frame of i
the car. Utterly relaxed and en- |
Joying it hugely, I caught myself I
actually humming the refrain of a
popular song.
"Mr. Houser was anxious to give 1
a word of greeting to some friends :
in a flying field nine miles from
Warmensh so we came down for a
short call, rising again as easily as
if driving away from your door.
"When at a considerable height I
felt my body suddenly forced
against the back of the seat Look
ing at the nose of the plane I saw
that we were headed sharply down
ward at an oblique angle. But the
engine still roared and the pro
peller hummed, so that I feared
nothing. From having watched
air maneuvers I realized we were
taking what is known as a 'nose j
dive.' It is a proceeding far more
thrilling to spectators on the ground
I assume you, than to the partici
pants. I have been much more
excited shooting the chutes at
Coney Island!
"Space and speed are almost ob
literated in air travel. We flew at |
the rate of 120 miles an hour part I
of the time and it seemed no more i
than about 20 to 30. Turning in the
air, tipping far over apparently
balanced upon one wing, is real
sport. You almost look for spray
to wash over the port gunwale.'
"When finally we sighted the
home field and landed with a snort
and puff of that outrageously noisy
engine, my one regret was that I I
had to climb out again. AH honor
to the ingenuity of the brains which
have perfected such an exhilarating,
delightful and—l say it earnestly— I

in the hands of an efficient pilot one '
is in even less danger than upon
our over-crowded highways."
