Somebody Lost His Job From the Popular Magazine. In a business men’s club in a western town there sprang up two factions, one of which criticised the steward because, he did not provide the members with good meals and one which defended him hotly. The dispute got fiercer and fiercer. Half the club wanted to fire the stew ard at once; the other half said he was efficient. Then, without warning, the stewacd himself decided the momentous question One day at lunch time a member of the club asked a waiter; ’’Where’s the stew ard?” I “He ain't here,’* replied the waiter. “He said he was going lown the street to get something good to cat ’ ’ U.S. SHIPMENTS OF FOODSTUFF TO EUROPE IS NOW EASIER' New York, August 28.—Shipments ol’ this country’s foodstuffs at European ports were further facilitated today by the action of the eastern trunk rail roads, which ordered a resumption of through bills of lading, subject to minor restrictions. It Is expected this will have the effect of vastly increasing American exports and bringing about a gradual readjustment of foreign ex change situation. The approach of the monthly settle ment period in Lohdon, which calls for heavy cash payments at that centre, despite the prevailing moratorium, was a factor of importance in the exchange market today. Cables on Eon don sold at 5.09Va with 5:07t£ for demand. Con siderable business was done at these higher rates, which were again as cribed in part to the victories credited to the German arms. Another Conference There was another conference of in tori ational bankers regarding the means to be employed for payment of Nc w York city warrants which inu iurt during- the next fortnight. The ••••••••••••••••a••■•••••••••■•••••••••••••••••••••••» amount due London is something like $12,000,000 with tbat much, or slightly Jj more, due Paris. While most local bankers continue their opposition to the suggestion that gold be exported, the Impression prevails that only by some shipments of the precious metal lo Can ada can the terms of this city’s obliga tions be met. A suggestion recently advanced by the city's fiscal agents for the formation of a syndicate of Eng- 4 lish, French and American bankers to handle this question was revived today but met with little favor. Conditions Unchanged Apart from some moderate transac tions in time loans at 7 to !) per cent monetary conditions remained un changed. Call loans were renewed at <i to .8 -per cent and commercial paper, while quoted at 7 per cent. Is lending at a fraction above that figure. Steady decline of local bank clearings measures the decrease in financial op erations, the falling off this week from the preceding one being 5.4 per cent and 24.4 per cent, compared with the cor responding week of J!Uo. The situation in the textile trades is summarized in the statement that de velopments of Lae week afford little en courageme’.i regarding the supply of raw materials from abroad. FIELD TO SUCCEED LATE JUDGE SHELBY Arsene Pujo of Louisiana and Judge W. A. Blount of Florida After Judge ship Honors By C. E. STEWART. Washington. August 2S.—(Special./ Two more candidates today entered the Held for judge of the United States circuit court in the place of the lat< i •Judge Shelby, in the persona of former | Representative Arsene Pujo of Louisi- j ana,'and Judge W. A. Blount of Flor-| ida. They are the only aspirants yet J announced from any stale besides from I Alabama, which has five “favorite sons” in the race so far. While-'Pujo I will be supported by Senator Runs dell and Senator-elect Broussard and also may have other Louisiana states men behind him, he is not regarded as an ultra strong candidate. In the presidential primary he was a stanch supporter of Champ Clark and also it is understood that Senator Thornton is not likely to back his ambitions. Pujo acquired prominence as chairman of the House committee which investi gated the so-called “money trust,” but retired from Congress as the present administration came in, though enter ing the senatorial primary. Judge Blount’s friends have sought the support of Representative Brous sard and other members of the Lou- 1 isiana delegation, but, of course, with- | out success. Pujo’s friends are said to be angling for the indorsement of the Texas delegation, which, it is un derstood. will not have a candidate. In the failure of the members of the Alabama delegation, or any coterie of them, to get together on any other man, Judge Walker's chances today were said to be very bright. Senators Bankhead and White and Uepresen- j tative Underwood will call on Pres- ' ident Wilson on his return from New | Hampshire, and will urge the nomina- | tion of Judge Walker. Friends of ’ O. R. Hood, however, are not yet dis- j couraged. SPECIAL GRAND JURY TO PROBE MURDER Three In Greensboro Jail Charged ; With Assassination of Colored Planter CreerisLoro, August 28.—(Special.)

That a great quantity of cotton is to l»e used for Hie manufacture of bags in the near future is now a very strong probability. One of the largest grain coalers and manufacturers of mixed fee an in the west has written to a •Tackson broker for samples of the (Mot ion sacks used in handling salt, and which have been forwarded. | The grain deafer writes that “if ocean traffic continues to be Interrupted as it '>as been Hie past two or throe weeks, sufficiently so as to prohibit the im portation of burlap into this country, we must take some steps to arrange for a substitute for burlap bags. AYe naturally direct our attention to cot ton feed bags, but before doing no would like to have your opinion as to the advisability of packing molasses feeds in this sort of package. \Ve must use something to take the place of burlap, which is impossible to se cure."

The prices of burlan sacks for oats and mixed f£*d has advanced $80 per 1000 during the past few weeks, it is stated, and a substitute must be found. <£' GREENATLLE WILL HAVE FREE DELIVERY Houses Being Numbered and Street Name Plates Being Put Up.
