In this day and generation mother seeks the infant or junior department of her "nearest dealer," where is spread before her an array of knitted outergarments suited to every reqtiii'e ment of every child. Already the fail ing leaves hint of cool days to come and the subject of providing the chil dren with protective outdoor garments Is a timely one. From the standpoint of appearance or of practicability there is nothing to \ 'Y-/ 'S Ni j ' "Comfy" Knitted Woolen Togs. to everv Consist may The slip-eord sweater compare with knitted goods for chit dren. Consider, for instance, the lit tie white wool shown in t lie Illustration, change of Ing as it does be worn in part snug-fitting leggings have a at waist with tassels; the coat is supplied with a protecting col lar, four white buttons down the front, one at neck; pockets (the pride of childhood) ; cap with flap each side and white pcf-~i button; pa'r of mit tens. For the child who spends most of its time outdoors the sweater is in dispensable, and let it he of the sturdy eort, knit substantially, to withstand wear and tear. The happy looking lit tle girl in the picture Is wearing just Buch a one. It is a scarlet sweater coat with collar and belt fastened « Two Handsome Fall Coats with one red button In front, six red buttons down the front and one under collar fastened with the loop. The becoming hood is knitted in fine Btltch, with two colorful stripes and white tassel on short cord matched to the stripes. A very clever Idea also is the plait ed knit cape for little girls. Another article obtainable in the junior de partment is a knitted tam o' sbanter with Its top of white wool in finger stitch. A very handsome four-piece set is knitted In a striped stitch effect and It has a brush lining. Silk braid binds the leggings. The brushed lining ap pears In the reverse of the cap, the collar and the top of the mittens. The question of the coat is upper most in many a fair head, for the time has come to buy one. A feast is spread for the benefit of every woman who must make a choice this fall ; but the melancholy days arc come when many a coat aspires to associate with beautiful, sumptuous furs; they are higher priced mid. far more becoming than they would be otherwise. Wom en are finding them irresistible and there are several good reasons for buy ing as fine a garment as the purse al lows. Wie soft-faced cloths are rich and lustrous and they invite the use of furs in their trimmings. There seems to be an abundance of skins, but the han dling of furs takes much time and this is what runs into money. Most furs arc long-lived and serve their wearers for several years, so that they pay for themselves in the end. Two handsome coats, as shown in the picture, are typical of the season's offerings. Both of them employ a soft, lustrous pile-fabric for the body of the garment, both of them are straight-hanging and each has a strap girdle of self material. They have a look of warmth and luxurious soft ness, which appears to be the aim of every coat designer this year. The coat at the left is a lovely wood-brown color, with collar and cuffs of silky, dark brown fox fur. Long silk cords, ending in tassels, fall from ornaments of silk at the left side. A rich and glossy black, in the coat at the right, measures up to the beauty of the black caracul fur that adorns it. It has wide cuffs and fall collar of the fur and squares of it make a checkerboard design that almost cov ers the skirt portion of the garment Crepe de chine Is a favorite material for lining coats of this kind. Usually linings are in plain colors, and there Is & fad for using two or even three colors, set together with a soft, fancy braid. A light color, at the top of the garment, will never "crack" or darken a light dress, and a dark color on the lower half of the coat does not show soil which is apt to gether there. I ' CONFERENCE WORKS OUT PLANS ON THE MARKETING OF LAMBS v ' s 'C •vy- c . *•: iS Lambs Being Assembled in Big Dipping Yard Pens to Be Sent to the Vari ous Markets. (Prepared by thp United States Department of Agriculture.) Plans for the mure orderly market ing of native lambs at Jersey City and New York city, and the elimination of violent fluctuations in prices of live and dressed lambs at these markets, are to be worked out by a committee representing live stock commission men, slaughterers, retailers, railroads, stock yard companies at Jersey City and New \ r ork, eastern lamb producers, and the United States department of Agriculture. This committee was appointed as a result of the conference called recently by the United States Department of Agriculture, at Jersey City. At this conference members of the trade rep resenting the various interests en gaged in the handling, marketing, slaughtering and retailing of iambs at Jersey City and New York met repre sentatives of sheep and lamb pro ducers and the department. Practical ly all the factors responsible for the wide fluctuation in lamb prices at Jer sey City during certain periods were brought out by full discussion. The conference developed the fact that the lamb problem at Jersey City is a production and marketing prob lem combined, and that its solution lies largely in the hands of the pro ducers and slaughterers of native lambs, although live stock commission men and retail meat dealers can assist In remedying the situation. Occupies Key Position, Jersey City occupies a key position in the channel of distribution between the lamb producers and the largest center of consumption, inasmuch as it Is the final public concentration point for live lambs destined for New York city, the greatest consuming center for dressed lamb in the United States and a market that requires a high-grade product. It w'as shown that ordinarily Jersey City has a reputation of being the highest lamb market in the country, but that during June, July and August it suffers violent price fluctuations be cause of the big increase in receipts of native lambs from Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylva nia, Michigan and New York, without any material decrease in the supply of live and dressed lambs received there and at New York city from Western points,^ The situation is complicated by the marked irregularity in the vol ume of the daily receipts during those months and by the inferior quality of the offerings, most of which arrive un sorted and ungraded. It was brought out that the poor quality of these lambs is due largely to the failure of producers to use bet ter breeding stock and proper feeding methods and to dock and castrate their lambs at the proper time. The fact that native lambs in so many in stances become infected in the sum mer months with diseases of parasitic origin, particularly stomach worms, makes it very important that they be marketed before the milk fat disap pears. • % These lambs usually are dropped at a period which requires that tiiey be marketed during the months of June, July and August, hence they are a perishable produce from a marketing standpoint. When they reach Jersey City in larger numbers than the de mand can absorb, and come in com petition with the high-grade live and dressed Western lambs, prices break sharply and affect the lamb market generally at all points. Declines in the dressed market often are more drastic than those in the live market. Better Breeding Stock Urged. It was agreed at the conference that producers of native lambs should use better breeding stock ; supply am ple feed both to the ewes and lambs for maximum gains in order to mar ket the lambs before they become in fested with parasites, and practice docking and castration. It was agreed, also, that producers in the different areas should reach an understanding which will lead to the lengthening of the breeding and mar keting period, and that they should co-operate in their marketing ln such a way as will insure grading and sort ing in the country and more orderly movement of lambs to market. In this connection it was suggested that the practice which appears to be general ly followed In certain states of con tracting lambs to country jèuyera for of a delivery during stated periods is large ly responsible for the irregularity in the daily receipts at Jersey City. If shippers would consign some of their lambs, particularly the lower grades, to other markets, where there is a bet ter outlet, it would do much towards remedying the undesirable conditions at Jersey City and New York. Feed ing stations established in the East as reservoirs from which to feed the market as supplies are needed also were mentioned as a means for reme dying conditions, Producers and commission men rec ommend that local and Western slaughterers co-operate by endeavor ing to reduce the volume of their di rect shipments and their shipments of Western dressed lambs to Jersey City and New York from Middle Western markets at periods ivhen gluts are known to occur, in order to insure a supply no greater than the demand. It was also suggested that live stock commission men advise their patrons as to when gluts usually occur and when there are good reasons to believe one will occur, explaining fully what happens when undesirable and unfin ished lambs are sent to the Jersey City market. It was recommended that retailers feature lamb in their advertising and selling efforts during the period ot ex cessive receipts and give consumers advantage ot recessions in wholesale prices. Any steps taken along this line would encourage consumption and tend to check price fluctuations. Personnel of Committee. Although the movement of native lambs to market will soon be complet ed for the current year, the conference was unanimous in its desire to work out plans immediately which will in sure more orderly marketing and less price fluctuation. The following com mittee was appointed to work to this end with representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture: H. K. Nickell, United Dressed Beef company, New York; L. S. Joseph, vice president New' York Butchers' Dressed Meat company, New York ; George Kramer, United Master Butch ers of America, New York; H. D. Wi mer, Pennsylvania Railroad company, Philadelphia ; George A. Shannon, vice president New York and New Jersey Live Stock association, Jersey City; J. H. Meek, chief, bureau of markets, Richmond, Va., and R. C. Bonham, president and general manager Jersey City stock yards, Jersey City. FORECASTS INCREASE PROFITS ON ALFALFA Growers in West Receive Predic tions Through Agents. Seed Is Largely Grown From Second Crop and if Season Is Late Frost and Harvest Periods Come Close Together. (Prepared by the United States Department I of Agriculture.) Forecasts of weather conditions for alfalfa harvest are widely distributed in the West, particularly in Oklahoma, where 2,000 or more growers receive the forecasts through the local agents of the extension service of the United States Department of Agriculture. In Utah a rather limited but important frost-warning service for alfalfa-seed growers is in operation. Seed is largely grown from the sec ond crop, and if the season is late the harvest and fall frost periods come close together. As the seed crop increases in value at the rate of about $5 a day for each acre of seed when nearing maturity, the growers let the seed stand as long as possible. When temperatures low enough to cause damage are predicted by the weather bureau it is not unusual for the seed growers to run their cutting machines most of the night. In one section of Utah during a re cent harvest season fully 500 acres of seed were cut after receipt of the warnings, at an average saving of $20 to $30 an acre. Two of these grow ers reported that they saved at least $2,000 as à result of the weather In formation furnished by Uncle Sam concerning frost conditions. ly to Wi as>«*s at mm mm La Follette Head a New Party? Senator Robert M. LaKollette of Wisconsin won Ids campaign for nom ination as senator by a landslide vic tory. The politicians arc now saying that his alliance with radicals is taken to mean that he will seek the presidential nomination of a proposed new national party. They say that LaFoilette's attack on Harding and Republican policies and Ids accept ance of the Socialist indorsement of Ids own candidacy are straws indicat ing he would like to run for president in 1021. Anyway, La Follette defended his record in the senate, laying particular stress on his stand on questions relat ing to the World war. He has de nounced the four-power treaty and called the Fordney-McCumber tariff measure the "greatest robber tariff ever attempted." in reviewing the in dustrial situation, lie bitterly attacked the Eseh-Cumudns law and the pro posed snip sunsnty. w illiam A. Ganfield, who sought to displace Senator La* Follette, declared during his campaign "that of all the radical things LaFol lette has proposed, the one most subversive to the government of the United States is ids proposal to take away from the Supreme court the final decision as to the constitutionality of laws." He criticized the war record of Wiscon* sin's senior senator, and warned against what lie termed "the danger of expert Iiitnts of untried radical theories." "Bossism run mad" is the way lie pictured the campaign methods of Senator LaFollette. Miller of New York Is a Live Wire It is not unlikely that the man who Is governor of New York in 1924 will he a candidate for the nomination for President of the United States—so say the politicians. They also say that if Gov. Nathan L. Miller is re elected next November it is practically a foregone conclusion that his friends will bring him forward for the Repub lican nomination, though he consist ently discourages any suggestion of the sort now and leaves no doubt that he is a loyal supporter of President Harding for renomination. It is admitted all around that Gov ernor Miller has achieved the leader ship of tlie Republican party in New York. The net result has been the disappearance of all opposition to his renomination and the coalition of all factions of tlie party in the most for midable political organization seen in New York in many years. Fifty-four years old, with a vigorous physique and a commanding presence. Governor Miller has a way of going to tlie heart of si question with rapier strokes of logic that bewilder his opponents. Public men in New York have grown weary of drawing him into debate. *7 7 '4m \ Will John D. Drill on His Golf Links? What's this—good luck or bad, or retributive justice? Many years ago John D. Rockefeller, retiring front active leadership in the affairs of the Standard Oil company, went to the Pocantico hills to get away from oil and anything suggestive of oil wells. Now, on the Porvall and Forshap land located not more than half a mile from the oil king's estate, drilling is likely to begin at any time, as Indica tions point to oil anticlinal. Roy Forshay. youthful proprietor of the "Pleasantvllle Bike Garage." np In Westchester county, had some build ing lots for sale until a few days ago, when they were suddenly withdrawn T-om the market. Tlie reason was the iccidental discovery of an oily film >n water scoping through rain-soaked and immediately adjoining, which be <>ngs to William Porvall. The news traveled to New York. It was recorded in a few brief para graphs—and then things commenced to happen. Folks swarmed in from the countryside roundabout Pleasantvllle, asked questions, studied a small bottle of liquid which might or might not be oil of some kind, and asked Roy what he proposed to do when he got to he a petroleum king. Meanwhile Mr. Porvall, on whose land the oily substance first was found, no longer stays within sound of tlie telephone in his home. He has lived there for fifteen years, working as a carpenter and builder by day, and la the pleasant evenings looking after vegetables, fruits and flowers. 3W * \ !' » G. H.
