33ellaire, Ohio, July 21"In the
old days to have a fine boat minus a
special bell was like trying to run a
circus without the elephants." said
Captain Jeff Frame. wharrmaster at
Wheeling, W. Va.. telling about the
Ohio River steamboats of a half cen
tury ago.
"During the Civil War both armies
took most of the good bells off the
boats and junked them to obtain the
copper content," Captain Frame con
tinued. "Most of the bells of that time and
for years afterward were made inthe
ehop of a moulder named Kay, in
Louisville, Kentucky, who was an ex
pert at fine toning. Ho came to the
Ohio Valley from Scotland. He charg
ed one dollar a pound. He put into
each bell a few ounces of silver.
"After the Civil War al the bigi
Pittsburgh-Cincinnati packets had fins
"A number of fine bells were used
for years on Souther plantations
Others were sold by boat owners to
schools and churches. -The steamer
Bedford, which ilarlk at Marietta. in
1898, is still remembered for its fine

The interior of the Western
Penitentiary of Pennsylvania, on
the Ohio River. in the 'Woods
Run district, near Pittsburgh.
-was wrecked, a dozen smaller
buildings connected with the in
stitution destroyedby fire and
fourteen persons, nine of them
convicts, injured in what is de
. Clared to-have been the greatest
prison riot and attempted deliv
ery in the history of,the United
States. The nine convicts in
jured were shot 1-7-. city police,
county detectives and prison
guards while attempting to fight
their way to liberty. Virtually
all of the 1,135 prisoners except
fifty, who are women, took part
in the rioting, both inside the
main building and in the prison
Try To Map
Baffin Land
An attempt to map Baffin Land,
the vast Arctic island southwest of
Greenland, whose 1,500 miles of un
explored western coastline is as much
a mystery today as when the English
navigator, William Baffin. announc
ed its discovery in 1616, is the main
objective of the Donald B. MacMil
lan expedition.
The tiny 115-ton schooner Row
doin, which carries the party north
was built at East Boothbay, Me.
She was named for MacMillan's
alma meter, has auxiliary power and
embodies all the essentials for resist
ing terrific ice packs. The crew
consists of six men. The vessel-is
of the Gloucester fisherman knocka
bout type, sheathed with ironwood.
87 feet long, with a draught of 9 1-2
feet Crude oil engines capable of
developing 60-horsepower are includ
ed in her equipment, as well as .2,000
gallons of fuel oil aud 500 gallons
of kerosene. The Bowdoirt also'
carries store... t,r-d provisioyis sufficient
to last her tgvrw two years.
The head of the expedition was
Peary's chief lieutenant on the lat-,
ter's successful dash to the North
Pole in 1909. He has made eight
voyages, into the Arctic regions. Ac
cording to MacMillan's plans,he in
tends to reach Baffin Land about
August 15 and establish a camp south
of the entrance to the dangerous
Fury and Heels. Strait, where the
ships of Captains Parry and Lyon.
seekers of the Northwest passage.
were blocked a century ago. The
location is 160 miles north of the
Arctic circle and 700 miles south of
Etah, Greenland. It is not far from
the point where MacMillan's Crocker
Land expedition passed the four win
ters 1913-14-15 16. On that oc
casion the exp;-dition was once re
ported lost and two relief expedi
tions were sent out for it but Mac
Millan finally returned. He annOtineeð
that Crocker Land was not "land,"
as believed possible by Peary, but
an ice mirage. -
During the winter of 1921-22, at
tempts will be made to explore the
COPt of Baffin - Land and the fol
lowing summer an effort will be
made to penetrate the interior where.
according to Eskimo tales, there ere.
ists one of the richest and,most al
luring fields of research in the froz
en north. The island is said to ba,ve
great mineral deposits and to possess
tanienyserahnedeubeaseeuntifbuyl wlahkietes
The region is believed to be an im
mense breeding ground for water
fowl, whose nesting habits will be tbe
subject of study, while the program
of the scientists of the expedition also
calls for field work in zoology, bp-.
tany, geology, meteorology and ter
restrial magnetism. Special obser
vations will be taken of themagnet
ie pole which was located first by
James Ross in 1830 on the further
side of the Boothia. penineula. not
far from MacMillan's proposed win
ter camp.
An attempt will also be made to
circumnavigate Baffin Land. In the
event of a serious mishap to the
Bowdoin, the party plans to retreat
by dog sledge to Fort Churchill, a
trading post at the foot of Hudson
Bay; and thence return to chilization
by way of northwestern Canada.
MacMillan was born in Province
town, Mass.. Nov. 10, 1874. the son
of a Cape Cod sea captain. He was
graduated from Bowdoin College in
1898 and took up postgra:dua-te work
at Harvard in 1910-12. Before be
coming an explorer he was a teacher
and public school principal. In addi
tion to accompanying Peary on his
last famous trip north. he was a
member of the Cabot Labrador expe
dition in 1910 and as previously re
ferred to, the leader of the Crocker
Land Expedition three years later. In
1911 and 1912 he made ethnological
studies of the Eskimos of Labrador.
He is unmarried.
Headquarters of the First Army'
Corps announced that more than
1.600 men out of a total of 8.600 in
New England area have asked for
their discharges.
Retail trade is buying canned
goods in greater quantity than at any
other time before this year, Libby,
McNeill & Libby announced,

New York, July 21New York
City has aptly been called the wonder
city of the world. Bat the metropolis
contains an institution unique even in
a city where things unique are taken
as a matter of course. It is a hurdy
gurdy "garage", believed to be the
elly one of its kind in thecountrv
Nestled among the stupendous sky
scrapers that mark the lower district
of Manhattan is a srnall, dingy,
weather-beaten building, strangely
out of place among - the surrounring
palaces of business. This is the
home of the hurdy-gurdy. Situated
but a stone's throw from the City
Hall, in a small block called City Hall
Place, and passed by thousands of the
city's dwellers daily, the building has
gone unnoticed for years.
The hurdy-gurdy has long lent col
or to the sidewalks of New York. For
years it was a common sight to see
the gayly-dressed Neapolitans trund
ling their organ into a crowded street
and become the center of a crowd of
laughing, shoving,. dancing, joyous
children when the first strains of
music came from the organ. The
small orres would sway to the
tunes of the "Sidewalks of New York"
and other favorites., or lustily join in
the chorus of some popular song.
Even the grown-ups would stop
awhile and listen while the hurdy
gurdy man played some selection
from -"Il Trovatore" or "I.a. Giocon
da," or perhaps some sentimental
song which wo,uld bring a catch to
the voice and a tear to the eye. And
when the song was finished the or
ganist with a tambourine woillid pass
among the crowd seeking his reward.
But all this will soon be a. thing of
the past, for the hurdy-gurdy, like
the wooden Indian, the hoop skirt and
the late-lamented five-cent beer, is
slowly but surely Passing to things
"The organ buisness is dying out."
rzid the silver-haired Italian propri
etor of the "garage" sadly, speaking
through an interpreter. "The people
don't seem to care about music the
way they used to. The girls grow up
about ten years younger than they
used to. They dress up and go to
the public dance halls while they are
still children. Arid then the passing

rangements which are expected to re
sult in the establishment of special
press rates from Hawaii to some terty
countrles during the eenstons et the
Press Congress of the World at Hon
olulu next October are being made by
W. S. P. Hawk, local manager of the
Radio Corporation of America, it is
announced. - - -
It is expected that between 450 and
500 editors, publishers and newspa
permen will come to the Islands this
Fall, and as a large number of them
will undoubtedly desire to keep their
respective publications informed by
radio as to the Congress proceedings,
the idea of special press rates occured
to Manager Hawk, and he is taking
up the matter with the "astern ()Bice.
Later on the vice-presidents of the
Congress, scattered over the globe,
will be consulted.
Plans are going ahead rapidly for
the chartering of a special steamer in
which the delegates will be taken on
visits to all of the larger islands of the
Hawaiian group. SPecial entertain
ment programmes are being prepared
by the residents- of these islands and
there will be a number of interesting'
features aside from the general sight

all of the Wanda

of the saloon had something to do
with it. Men who had a drink or
two, not the drunk men, seemed to
be affected more by the music."
The "garage" has been in exist
ence thirty years, the owner said. It
had formerly been a saloon. For thir
ty years, he said, the doors of the
building have opened, letting forth
the Italian organ grinders and their
shawt-clad women, ceirrying their or
gans. They went on regular routes,
agreed among themselves, to differ
ent parts of the city, over the bridge
to Brooklyn and even to points in
Staten Island and Jersey.
"Over There" was the biggest song
hit the organs ever played, the pro
prietor declared.
During the war and when the sol
diers were coming home," he said,
"there wasn't a sGng in the world
which would reach the peoples hearts
as quickly as 'Over There'. Yoted hear
a little organ grinding it out on a
side s-treet and as the people passed
they'd swing into step. Men in uni
form, fathers, mothers, boys and girls
the music seemed to go right
through them. Their eyes would
shine and generally you would see a
tear or two go slipping down their
cheeks. Then they'd drop something
shiny into the tin cup. Generally it
was a nickel or a dime or a quarter.
"But the grinders don't play 'Over
There' a,ny more. It isn't good for
even a. few pennies now. The people
have for gotton."
The most remunerative sections of
the town for the hurdy-gurdy men,
the aged proprietor said, were where
the ordinary American citizen lived
He responds to music the quickest.
"Most of the people who are now
in the organ business." continued the
owner, "are the -old and crippled. On
holidays, which are generally the best
days, and organ grinder sometimes
makes $8. But you must remember
that this is not an average and that
there are many days on which they
take in nothing and that the organ is
often the sole income of ,the family.
My sons I have sent to dental college
in this waY."
And thus we may soon record the
death of another old institution.
and there will be- several oldfash
toned "luaus," or native Hawaiian
feasts. with Hawalin music and hula
hula dancing. Realizing the impor.
tance of the Press Congress, the peo
ple of Hawaii, including some twentY
six races and mixtures of.races, are
working hand in hand in an effort to
provide for the- visiting newspaper
men as fine a programe of entertin
rnent as is possible. The recent Leg
islature appropriated $25,000 to help
cover the oost of entertaining the vis
itors. and the people of Hawaii are
to raise a similar sum for the same
purpose. '
