DOORN VILLAGERS EAGER
TO HAVE FORMER EMPEROR AMONG THEIR BURGHERS Doom, Holland, Oct. 17. "The House of Doom," as the estate recently purchased here by the former German Emperor has been called for centuries, lies right in the midst of this clean, slow moving little Dutch village, whose 3,000 or so inhabitants, while not at all excited about it, are looking forward with considerable interest to numbering among their burghers one 'William Ho henzollcrn, formerly of Potsdam. The villagers, along with most per sons in this section of the country, be lieve that he is coming here to settle down for life. If that be his intention he has selected as a voluntary substi tute for St Helena one of the prettiest spots in Holland. There is nothing in the estate he has purchased or in the surrounding community to suggest a place of exile. i Above Sea Level Doom, like Amerongen. is one of the few villages in Holland located on ground that seems to be above the sea level. Instead of canals and dykes and the monotonous flat land occupied by sleepy-looking black and white cows and pompous, fat windmills which form the unchanging scenery of most of Hol land, the country about Doom while generally flat, to be sure, has here and there a faint suspicion of a hillock, and the white stone or pink brick roads wind quite frequently through forest land—most of it the private preserves of the Dutch nobility. Hundreds of automobiles pass through for it is on the main highway from Amsterdam and Rotterdam to Arne:n, which passes the Hohenzollcnr estate. From this road, through a long avenue of stately trees, is visible one side of "The House of Doom." There is also almost a constant procession of bicycl ing tourists, and the two main hotels, with their white painted little veranda cafes, and the "pensions," or boarding houses, do a rushing business all through the season. In fact, caring for summer tourists seems to be Doom's only means of livelihood. The country for miles around is dotted with hand some villas, summer homes of wealthy people of Amsterdam or Rotterdam, and the more pretentious castles of the Dutch aristocracy, who live there all the year round, emerging daily from old-time teudal castles for carriage rides behind slow but sure Dutch horses driven by solemn looking coach men in tall, black hats. Some of the nobility have automobiles and nearly every Hollander has his bicycle. Easy of Access Doom is quite easy of access to the ordinary tourist. One travels by ex What Is Rheumatism?

There he boards a train of small but comfortable cars drawn by a steam locomotive only one size larger than those operated for children in American amusement parks, and this miniature railroad, runs down the high way, with its narrow track at the right" of the automobile road, toward Doom and Amerongen. It is a thirty minute ride from Driebergen, and the train, at the melancholy signal of a tin horn blown by the conductor, stops within a hundred feet of the entrance to the estate. There are no guards about the estate now nor walls nor moats to protect the house from the curious passerby. It is forbidden, however, to walk in the 200-acre park without special permis sion, which is not being granted, just now, as Herr • Hohenzollern's furniture and art treasures, 51 big vanloads, valued at something over 34,000,000, as being stored and placed preparitory to the moving out of the Baronness Van Heemstra de Beaufort, on November 1, and the moving in of the former Em peror late In December or early in Jan uary. PRESS AGENTS CRUELTY The late Tody Hamilton, famous as a circus agent, once planned a special performance at the winter headquarters of his show. He ar ranged to feed beer to the animals in their cages and notified the New York newspapers. Among the reporters was a bibul ous veteran known as "Billy." That night before his assignment he had been engaged in a severe bout with John Barleycorn and the next day felt greatly in need of a pick-me-up. As the keepers, under Hamilton's direction, poured gallons of beer in to the receptacles for the animals sniffing at it indifferently, Billy be came more and more incensed at the waste. "I can't stand this any longer. Tody," he exclaimed. "For the love of Mike, haven't you got an empty cage for me?" —Everybody's Maga zine.

SCOUT NEWS BASKETBALL TO HOLD THE SCOUT Troop 13 Arranges to Have Team During Coming Winter Months When tho cold wintry nights come the members of Scout Troops seek Indoor activities. There are many, such as checkers, games, club meet ings, basketball —but here Troop 13 will stop and add to the Scout page some of her future plans. Last Scout meeting the Scouts elected William Fenstermacher as manager of the first basketball team, while Harry Huber will assume the duties as manager of the second team. Manager Fenstermacher call ed a meeting, and captatns for the two teams were chosen. Joseph Ha gar was chosen to lead the first team, and Bruce Qrunden will have charge of the second team. Last season Troop 13 enjoyed a successful and pleasant basketball career. The troop's first team lost only one game during the year. We did experience some hard games, among which were those with Troop 1 of Middletown and Troop 19 of Harrlsburg. During last year's sea son Troop 13 scored 400 points, play ing six games on her homo floor and six away from home. Tho Academy 'varsity forfeited their game with us. This year the troop will feel the loss of Charles Carl and Jason Sny der, who were both fast players, and who together scored 113 points of the total number. However, the troop is not out for games only, but for the sake of the sport in fair games. Thoso who played a required num ber of games last year on both the first and second teams' schedules received the privilege of wearing the troop's athletic emblem, which is a navy blue eagle with wings out stretched, and a golden numeral 13 on' the breast of the bird. Those who wear the eagle are: First team —Charles Carl, Joseph Hagar, Harry Huber, William Ma glauchlin, William Fenstcmacher and Jason Snyder. Second team —Robert Keller, Karl Moeslein, Bruce Grunden, Richard Hartzler, Joseph Hertzler, Donald McCammant and Harry Huber. The troop has no coach and their training is practically individual work. The second team takes charge of itself with no outside aid what ever, and those who are expected to shine for that team are: Donald McCammant, Bruce Grunden and Joe Hertzler. Chances on the first team are all even, the members hav ing played a year previous, and therefore holding a somewhat def inite knowledge of basketball. Those out this year for the first team are: Joseph Hagar, William Fenstemacher, William Maglauclilin, Harry Huber, Robert Keller, John Thompson and Thomas Webster. Troop 13 wishes that every troop would put out a fast and fair team, to make basketball one of the leading winter activities in Harrisburg this winter.

HXmUSBTTRG tiSPftS TEUEGKXPHI Group 6 Holds Rally in Troop 8 Headquarters Last Monday evening Troop B's headquarters was the meeting place of a group rally of Group 6. Scouts of all troops in this Group were present. Troops 11 and 13 were also present. When the Scouts had all assembled Troop 8 marched In, sa luted and took their places, after which all sang "America." Mr. Jenkins, Scoutmaster of Troop 8, then addressed the audience and turned the meeting over to Deputy Commissioner R. H. Lyon, who took charge. Several popular songs were sung, and then J. H. Messersmith was introduced, and In turn present ed the chief speaker of the evening, Ben Whitman, an ex-Y. M. C. A. man. Mr. Whitman told some very In teresting Incidents ir. the life of a Y man in as Interesting a way. The audience, In fancy, boarded the ship with him and saw through the port holes of the ship their last sight of America. He then took us part way across the ocean where we were nearly all torpedoed by a German Ü boat. He had many exciting times with the doughboys and the Tom mies. James Nell was then taken into the troop with impressive cere monies. The lights were all extin guished and a stand containing a 15-light candlestick was brought forth. Scoutmaster Jenkins presid ed at this ceremony and told James that the three large candles repre sented the three points of the Scout oath. Twlve Scouts then came for ward, and each lighted a candle, re peating one of the 12 Scout laws, which the 12 smaller candles repre sented. James then repeated the oath and his tenderfoot badge was presented. He is now a fullfledged member of Troop 8, and the first one in Harrlsburg to be initiated un der this new form of ceremony. One of the first-class Scouts of the troop was theh presented with his first class badge, after he had renewed his oath. Then there was more sing ing, after which the Rev. Reisch, pastor of Christ Lutheran church, with which Troop 8 is connected, addressed the audience. Earl Miller presented the troop with a drum which we badly needed, and Mr. Chronister, in behalf of the Men's Bible class, presented a large American flag which we were very glad to secure. Scout Executive Virgin delivered a brief address, after which the meeting closed with the national an them. Music for the afTair was furnish ed by the orchestra of Troop 8 and singing was directed by Assistant Scoutmaster Koehler. The decora tion committee had also gone to work, and the room presented a fine appearance. EDGAR A. SPOTZ, Scribe.

All Scouts are asked to report at the Square at 9 o'clock In the morning to take the car for Rockville. D. RUMPF, Scoutmaster. Scouts Plan Trip to Lamb's Gap Friday, October 10, Troop 14 had a meeting at its regular hangout, and we had a visitor. Troop 19, with its Scoutmaster, and also Assistant Scout Commissioner, Mr. German. "We opened up by a talk from Mr. German, and, as usual, it was a dandy. Among other things, he said that every Scout should carry his registration card, as h boy under 15 must be off the street by 9 p. m. unless with an older person, but if a Scout shows his registration card and proves he has Just been to Scout meeting, he may go home unmo lested. And, fellows, you will find it good policy to do this, as last Scout meeting I had to act as chap eron to one fearful Scout because he was under 15 and did not have his card with him. After this Scout master Miller gave us a talk upon field telegraphy, and let us ask him questions upon electricity in general, and he sure knows this subject and can talk upon It. We then had a few minutes to talk with each other and to plan on a proposed trip to Lamb's Gap. The meeting was then closed, as many of the Scouts did not have their registration cards, and, being under 15 years old, made it necessary for the Scoutmaster to close the meeting much earlier than they wished to, so next time all bring your credentials. JOEL EARNEST, Scout Scribe. ■ V Scoutmasters to Hike to Happy Hollow The Scoutmasters of the city,, to gether with the Assistant Scoutmas ters, expect to go on a hike to Happy Hollow on Saturday after noon. The party will leave Scout headquarters at 4:30. Prof. H. A. Surface, who has won fame for his work on trees and ani mals, will be in charge of the nature study division. In company with Scout Executive Virgin, he went over the proposed route of the hike I through Cameron Park extension, I and found at least thirty varieties of common trees and shrubs. The objective of the hike Is a little grove of trees about a quarter of a mile south of the eastern gate to the park. There supper will be cooked, and under the direction of Scout Executive Virgin, the men will be initiated into the mysteries of the various types of firo-building that are in use among woodsmen, trap pers and Scouts. Troop 11 Guests of Troop 13 at Slide Entertainment Last Friday evening Troop 11 was invited by Troop 13 to attend a lantern slide entertainment given by Mr. Manser of Troop 11 on birds, flowers and trees. We had a fine time and want to thank Troop 13 for their invitation to us. Before we left to attend the en tertainment of Troop 13, a short' | meeting was held.
