LATCHIS THEATRE Old Clack Joe. Tiv Stephen Collins Foster; born near Pittsburgh, 182G; died in New York Citv. 1SC.4 J American , Folk Songs Folk or peo ple's songs are usually considered to be the product of a number of unknown j persons that it, they are the results of I the changes and conditions which have been made as the wngs have been passed ' from one singer to another without be- ing w ritten down. Nevertheless, al though we know who wrote the words and music of Old Black Joe. Old Folks at Home (vanee Iliver), Old Kentucky Home. Massah's in the Cold, Cold Ground, and 'Nejlie Was a Lady, they are regarded as American folk songs. So : - , sincerely and directly do these so"ngs of friendship and home suggest old planta tion days that they are frequently thought to 1m folk songs composed by he Negro people. A mirror of slavery days Stephen Collins Foster, who wrote both the words and music of all the above songs and many others describing Negro . life in slavery days, was a white man, an American of Irish descent. His songs are sung and loved not only in this coun try, but all over the world, both in Eng lish and in other languages. The influ ence of the slave songs with vhieh he be came well acquainted during his young manhood can be seen in the sadness which fills nearly all of his writings. Probably it is because sadness - touches so closely the finest feelings in all out lives that we all, even in our happy mo ments, love to sing the Foster songs. ' A song all men like--()!d Black Joe has always been a peculiar favorite with men and boys. It was constantly called for in the community singing of our sol diers here and in France. It expresses most touchingly, especially when sung softly, the longing of a lonely and tired man for rest. COOLIDGE TO BE DARTMOUTH GUEST To Address G. O. P.

EGG MARKET IN CRITICAL STATE Warehouses Clicked With Storage Eggs and Fresh Ones Coming In Price War Expected. NEW YORK. Oct. 16. The New York egg market confronts its most crit ical condition of 10 years. Warehouses are -choked with fifl.OOO, 00? dozen more eggs than in October, 1021. Fresh supplies are arriving in nearly double the' quantity of last year. The consumptive demand is 'so slack that commission merchants and dealers are alarmed. There are in the metropolitan ware houses about 1.200.0(H) cases of 30 dozen eggs each. Adding to this the prospec tive supply to be received during the next three months, there1 will be on the market for each of the 6,000.000 inhabi tants of the city nearly. 150 .eggs from now until Jan. 1. Each resident must eat two eggs a day to use up the old sup plies fcefori western crops arrht?in De cember. For some time there has been much speculation in the wholesale district as to whether or not it were possible to save the situation without the loss of millions of dollars and eggs. "There is only one way to save the situation,"" said P. Q. Foy, editor of sev eral produce publications. "Consump tion must be stimulated by selling at a price low enough to attract. - "The American housewives are mas ters of the situation. During the last two weeks they refrained from using fresh eggs as the retail price started soaring above 00 cents. This not only brought a declrne of eight to 10 cents in wholesale prices, but resulted in a loss of nearly per cent in the consumptive demand.
