HOWARD NATIONAL BANK
Want Help?
There is no person who does not oc
casionally need help. In the modern
world we are all dependent one upon
another. Financial help is not a mat
ter of more friendship or favor. Do
business with this Bank. Establish
your credit with the Howard Na
tional Bank and provide for the ad
vantages of financial assistance
when you need it.
PREPAREDNESS
Preparedness for many of the crises that may
happen you is measured by money. "In time of
peace prepare for war," is a national maxim;
but not less important for the individual is the
rule, "in time of profit prepare for loss." Put
your extra money in

leen leaving home for the city, hut It Is
let so generally known that In the past
2 months the exodus has been greater
ihan ever before. In New York State alone
there are 24,000 vacant farm houses, and
it is estimated that within ten miles of
vny city in the country, possibly xcept
iig New York, there are. many thousand
icres' of untilled land, and many vacant
housfts. This Is a clue to the reason for

BIG FARMS NEED HIRKD MEN
1 The difficulty connected with the eom
' merclally-run farm which .specializes Is
1 that it requires hired labor, and labor Is
still scarce. Stories of harvest help are
confusing. Farmers- of one section re
port that they have labor enough. Others
fay that they cannot get any kind of
help, and others want only skilled hands
, -,,. i , . . . ( i. .i.
of a farm Journal, who tried to get the

says that he got the addresses of work

miles from Newport she says two men
overtook her with a oar, and asked her to
ride. She refused at first, hut finally

they gave her something to drink and
that she remembers nothing more.
She claims she did not know cither of

MASS. PROBE FINDS
MANY PROFITEERS
Stale Commission Reports Increased
TVndency to Boost Nrenisltlea
Boston, Aug, An Increased tendency
toward profiteering, especially in the meat
and produce business Is noted In a report
to-day of the State commission on neces
saries of life covering the six months
ending July 31.
"During the past few months," says
the report, "whether because of the fact
that dealers In the necessaries of life arc
no longer In fear of prosecution by the
federal authorities, or whether they feel
a certain Justification because of the enor
mous profits ma.de in other lines of busi
ness, there has been an increased ten
dency In this community to profiteer, es
pecially in the. meat and produce busi
ness," The cost of living in Massachusetts has
increased 102.6 per cent since 1913, accord
ing to the commissioners, who, however,
predict an early reduction, due to an
abundance of raw materials, prices of
which it is pointed out have dropped
sharply of late.
"Wages as a general rule have kept
pace with the advancing costs," the com
mission says, but adds that in reality the
laborer is not as well off as formerly be
cause of Interrupted employment In many
lines. Salaries and (
still behind tho advance In prices but peo
uaring meraselvea to conditions
and the increase In cost is being compen
sated by economics and a general cur

N. Y. DEMOCRATS ARE
UNITED JRSMITH
Present Governor Is Unanimous
Choice at Unofficial State
Convention at Saratog a
Platform to Be Adopted
Saratoga Springs, Aug. 3. Governor
Alfred E. Smith was unanimously ac
claimed as the candidate for re-nomlnatlon
by the official Democratic Stato conven
tion to-night. Although convention lead
ers had decreed that there should be no
designation or recommendation of can
didates at the foil primaries on a roll call
of the counties for an expression of opin
ion, "Alfred V
Smith" was the only re- i
sponsr.
When .Selienertndy county was reached
on the roll call, Mayor Oeorge H. Lunn.
who earlier h.id vigorously fought against
the expression of nny preference, said
that hi; had tried to make it clear that
so far as Schenectady county was con
cerned there was no other gubernatorial
candidate under consideration, but that
ho would decline to answer on tho roll
cn.il because to do so would constitute a
violation of the. spirit of the direct pri
mary law.
When the roll call for preferences was
proposed Mayor Lunn offered a motion
that the convention refrain from such
sictlon, but It was lost by tho overwhelm
ing vote of ! to 111.
Governor Smith's name was formally
placed before the convention by formrr
tlovernor Martin 11. Glynn, who respond
ed for Albany, the first countv on the
list. Others who spoke for the governor
Included O. Caddy Merrick of Albany
and .Miss Harriet May Mills of Syracuse.
To-morrow the convention will adopt a
platform and will call the roll of coun
ties for an expression of opinion regarding
the balance of the State ticket, two as
sociate Judges of the court of appeals
and United States senator
The unofficial Democratic State conven
tion to. night flattened out the opposition
led by Mayor Oeorgo It. Lunn of Schenec
tady to a proposal to rll a roll of the
counties for tho purpose of getting an
expression of opinion regarding can
didates Mayor Lunn put up a vigorous fight, hut
ho djd not have the voles behind him.
Backed by tho solid Schenectady county
The convention was outspokenly hostile
to Mayor Lunn. When former Congress
man .lohn .T. Fitzgerald of Brooklyn re
fcrred to recent acquisitions to the Demo
cratlc party there were cries of "voto
with the socialists" "throw out the
socialists" and go back to tho socialists"
referring to the mayor's former affilia
tions with that party.
MYSTERY IN GIRL'S DEATH
Nlnclecn-Year-Old Factory Worker,
About to nceome Mother, Relieved
Suicide
Johnson, Aug. 3. The. body of Miss Amy
Shonio, 1!, missing since Saturday evening
when she left her boarding place, was
found this afternoon back of the ceme
tery by two factory girls crossing through
tho cemetery hill to get to tho river. The
cause of the girl's death is said to-night
by the authorities to be unknown, but it
Is beliovcd that they arc proceeding under
the assumption that she committed suicide
by taking some kind of poison. Dr B. H.
Stono of the Stato laboratory of Burling
ton performed an autopsy this afternoon
and took the vital organs to the laboratory
for analysis.
Only a brief statement could be secured
from State's Attorney Tracy to-night.
Miss Shonio, who had been employed
at the factory here for a year, was said
to-day to have been about to become a
mother and that was the reason for her
supposed suicide, the authorities state.
What nuzzles the authorities Is tho
authorities Is tho absence of any bottle
that may have contained poison, as noth
ing was found by tho body.
Miss Shonio's body was found under
a tree near an old barn.
Shn left her boarding place Saturday
evening and It is believed she died that
night. So far as known she went wun no
young men In the village and horo a good
reputation, living quietly. That she. was
mlssinir whs not reported to tho authorities
until last night. Her father. N J. Shonio
of Stowe, was horo to-day and had barely
returned home when notified of the find
ing of h'er body.

HOME BREWERS HIT
BY JUMP IN RAISINS
Now York, Aug. 3. "Booze raisins"
Jumped yesterday 20f) per cent wholesale
above the price prevailing before the
wnr and ten per cent over their whole
sale cost a year ago. This new high
price was brought about when 149 or FiO
carloads of California muscatels passed
from one group of California packers into
the hands of another group without the
slightest chance of reaching tho consum
ing publlo before next October.
The sale was an open one on the
Mercantile Exchange. Before they
reach the consumer, whether In the
loose, raw state or In the form of
"home brew," trreao raisins will have
cost tho hotrar.wlfo at least 40 conts a
pound. Thus "homo brow" will be
brought pretty close, to the marginal
cost of a thimbleful or the stuff that
Is prohibited but still gets over,
either In the. front or tho back room.
Merchants who were not Interested
In this salo described tho retains as of
"the loose, unseeded, packed in tho box
variety," hardly suited for oastcrn do
mestic purposes, but admirably adapted
to hrowlnp uso.
The carloads were offered by Brown
& Secomb for a group of California pack
ers. A Chineso Arm bought In tho flrstcar
at a fraction over 22 cents the. pound, there
being 35,750 pounds to a car. Then prices
rose, to 24 cents the pound. The. 149 cars
wero brought In by E. Z. Foley of Fresno.
Calif., a packer. The average price for
each car was almost .T14.000, bringing the
total for the 100 to nearly $2,000,000.
Generally tho salo was described as a
"wash one" to establish a foundation
price for the packers.

O'CONNOR PLEDGES
SUPPORTTQ HARDING
President of International Long
shoremen's Association Has
Conference With Presidential
Candidate
Marlon, O,, Aug. 3. Senator Harding I
held a conference to-day with T. V.
O'Connor of Buffalo, president of the In-
tnmiHnnnl fneshorcmen's Association .
at which tho labor situation was discussed
generally and tho candidate was assured
of tho support of the labor leader. Mr.
O'Connor later gave out a statement cov
ering his views.
Previous to his conference with Mr.
O'Connor, Senator Harding had conferred
at length with Senator Harry S. New of
Indiana, chairman of the Republican
Speakers' Bureau on matters pertaining
to the speaking campaign. To what ex
tent If at all tho front porch campaign
will bo deviated from Is understood to
havo been discussed.
Senator New asserted that no ono In
authority has said there would be no
deviation from the plan nnd then pro
ceeded to discuss the handicap of a front
porch campaign now as compared with
the. Harrison campaign in W and the
two McKlnley campaigns n ikm and 1W.
.Not only are railroad rates higher, but It
Is Impossible for the railroads to furnish
equipment to conduct excursions to the
candidate's home as In past years, he
said.
A statement Issued hy Mr, O'Connor af
ter the conference said In part:
"I am for Senator Harding, because I
believe a change of administration abso
lutely necessary to restore confidence In
this country. I know Senator Harding
Is a real man from whom labor will
always get a square deal without any
blare of trumpets or brass bands.
"I have heard a good deal of various
leaders that are going to deliver the la
bor vote this year, but I want to say that
nobody will deliver It Labor Is thinking
as never before, and Is going to vote to
suit. Itself. In 1916 I was away from homo
and lost my vote, hut If I had been there
I would have voted for Wilson, But
the Democratic Party has since then lost
Its claim for contldcnco of the country.
We. must restore popular confidence in
our government In order to put an end
to the unrest that exists. The fact Is
that the world is in a bad scrape, and If
the United States does not keep Its feet
on the ground the world can't.
"I deal with all the nationalities ex
cept Asiatics, in our organization, and
I know that there is a general desire
to get away from entanglements with
European concerns. There is a good deal
of apprehension among tho men less con
ditions which they observe In Europe
may reach hcac They are determined to
avoid anything of that kind If they can.
"It seems very plain to mo that labor
must support the Republican party this
year. If tho Democrats should win, the
government would be turned over to the
control of the solid South and the ma-
cninc-domlnating Democratic States of
the North. The solid South will be the
dominant partner and the South has
been utterly reactionary In its attitude
toward labor. It Is completely out of step
with modern attitudes toward such ques
tions as women in industry, child labor,
limited hours of labor, employers liability
and the like.
"Former Senator Bailey is campaigning
for the nomination for governor in Texas
with the opon shop as his platform. I have
novor asked the absolute closed shop,
but I certainly could not assent to the
view that the southern Democracy takes
of the problems of labor."

BIGGEST PIECE OF JADE
lm In NnrnraJ History Museum Larse
as Plymouth. Rock
(From the New York Times)
With Jade for ornaments Increasing In
prico from five to six times what it was
previous to tho great war. It is. Interest
ing to know that the. largest known bloc
of jade in existence Is in tho American
Museum of Natural History in New York
city. The big stone looks to the averaga
observer to bo about as largo as that
famous piece of rock they keep under n
elaborate arch at Plymouth, Mass.. the
famous Plymouth Rock, upon whfcn the
Pilgrims, landed. If?-actual nlzo 10 Sevan
feet In length by four In width and Its
weight is throe tons.
The museum's block of jade does not
look unlike tho Plymouth -Ttock. for white
jade always suggests a beautifully pol
ished green, or pcrhops white, stone., this
being in the rough, looks venrrmich lOco
any other boulder.
While tho big piece of-Jado is one. of
the museum's great curiosities. It is not, 1
as might be supposed. In a conspicuous
place, say In the big centrap-hall oD'tha
museum on the main floor, but tucked
away In a far corner ot South Sea-hallon
the fourth floor. This is because It la
used as a part of an anthropological. x .
hlblt and on It Is poised a Maori warrior,
life size, in an attitudo suggestive ot a ,
war dance, with a, knife poised In an up.
raised hand.
The warrior is an interesting person
himself. He Ls in native costume, which
consists of tattooing on the- facti and the
upper part of tho legs and a breech cloth.
Tho model was cast from life. Theori
glnal was Hautuotcrangi, a Maori -dancer,
who was ono of a troupe brought to this
country a few yeanwigo to perform -at the
Tippodrome. Tho statue was tho work
of Sigurd Neandmss, and In the difficult
poso In which it is done- is considered one
on tho finest and most realistic figure
of this kind In the Museum.
Monsieur Hautiioleransl Is poised upon
tho block of Jadn because that stone. Is
found In vers- conslreable quantlties'm
New Zealand and is prized by tho Maoris
both as an article of value, and also as
a lucky stone. Besides making orna
ments nnd charms-of the Jade, the Maoris
carved axe-shapod Implements from It,
drilled at tho upper ends, and carried '.by
their chiefs as badges of office,.
The groater part of New Zealand jada
is found on thp western recast nf "South
Island In boulders which usually appear
In mountiln streams. This big block of
Jade was found on South Island In 1302,
It Ik of tho green variety, none of tho
white Jade being found 1n New Zealand,
and the Interior ranges from apple green
to the richest tones of emerald The
outer surfaces are snbject to change and.
Ilk this great boulder, are a subtranslu
