Dear Editor:
The “Wesley” story sure gave
me a hearty laugh for it reminded
me of the continuously vanishing
scrap pile that we tried to build up
under the steps leading up to the
paint shops of our carriage huilding
establishment on Bishop street.
Mr. Bartruff is now one of the
Judges of the Courts of Perry
county. He refers to a business
establishment that stood on Bishop
street on ground now occupied by the
home and the City
Bakery’s plant, That was before
“Wesley's” day so he has an alibi,

Chicago's stockyards, sometimes
called “the cow and hog butcher
for the world,” have assumed a
new role as medicine chest for the
world. :
Through their medical by-products,
mainly glandular preparations, the
great packing houses of the Union
Stockyards have become known
throughout the world as one of the
recognized centers of science for
‘the relief of suffering humanity.

one preparations, including liver ex-
tract, pepsin, pancreatin, extract of
red marrow and pituary liquid, are

Recent discoveries have made ani-
mal liver, formerly thrown and
given away, one of the most im-
portant sources for preparations for
regenerating the blood. In addition
many other medicinal agents are
being made from the membranes
and glands of hogs, cattle and
sheep. Pepsin, from the liningof a
pig’s stomach, is used to aid diges-
tion, Pancreatin, made from the
hog’s belly sweetbread, is employed
to peptonize food for infants and
invalids, For use in diseases due to

Superanalin, a powerful astrin-
gent and heart stimulant is worth
more than $5000 a pound, but 135,-
000 sheep are necessary to produce
that pound. The preparation is
made from glands located just
above the sheep’s kidney. It is al-
so used in bloodless operations on
the eye and nose and in India it
is used for cobra bites to stimulate
heart action after the snake poison
curdles the blood.
Liver extracts are used for the
relief and cure of secondary and
pernicious anemia.
Scientists declare that the use of
animal glands as medicine is still
in its infancy and that the by-pro-

Do not fail to give the proper
signal when starting, stopping or
pulling away from the curb, S. Ed-
ward Gable, president of the Lan-
caster Automobile Club, warns mo-
torists. The fact that the windows
of your car are closed or the cur-
tains in place, does not excuse you
for failing to signal your intentions,
he says.
“Too frequently accidents are
caused through failure of the driv-
er to give the proper signal,” said
Mr, Gable. “This is particularly
so in cold weather, when many drive
with windows closed or the car
completely curtained.”
“The Motor Code

highway before stopping, starting,
or turning from a direct line shall
first see that such movement can
be made in safety and shall give a
signal plainly visible to ‘the driver
of such other vehicle of the inten-
tion to make such movement. The
signal shall be given either by
means of hand and arm, or by an
approved mechanical or electrical
signal device.
“Whenever the signal is given by
means of the hand and arm the
driver shall indicate his or her in-
tention to start, stop or turn by ex-
tending the hand horizontally from
and beyond the left side of the ve-
hicle, or, if he is driving a closed
vehicle, by his hand 3nd arm in

This places the full responsibility
upon the driver and if an accident
happens through the failure to give
the proper signal the blame rests
with him, In order to avoid acci-
dents that happen in this way be
sure that you givea clear and prop-
er signal when about to start stop

Simple as That
Over lunch in a London hotel one
day not long ago, a certain wealthy
but unlettered man was invited by a
friend to join his shooting party in
Scotland later that week. “Man,” said
the prospective guest, “that’s a splen-
did idea. I'll get on the telephone at
once and get my man to clean my
He rose and rang up his house. “Is
that you, Forbes,” he said to his serv-
ant. “Well, I want you to go ahead
at once and get my gun cleaned.” “Beg
pardon, sir,” said the man, “did you
say ‘gum? ” “No,” shouted the Scot,
“I said ‘gun’—G for Jew, U for union,
and N for pneumatic.”
Tinned Stuff Used in Navy
More than 19,000,000 pounds of
canned goods are consumed by the
sailors of the United States navy in
a year. Canned tomatoes take the
lead in vegetables, followed by peas,
corn and stringless beans. Among
fruits, peaches lead, followed closely
by pineapple, then come prunes, apple
sauce, apricots, pears, figs and rais-
ins. Figs are relatively new in the
canned goods products, but the navy
uses them to the extent of 540,000
pounds annually.

too literally in the final settlement.
Posi-tivvly. the girls don’t like it. May:
be it is because woman is more con.

inherited privileges is to say that the
woman pays while she sees that the
man does it.
Of course. when the girls suggest a

Bear’s Propensity for
Hugging Termed Myth
The proverbial hugging propensity of
bears is probably a myth: notwith-
standing a vast amount of alleged
testimony to the contrary. Literature,
reference books und works on natural
history contain numerous references
to the “crushing embrace” or “deathly
hug” of beurs. Pope, for instance, says,
‘“rpis a bear's talent not to kick. but
bug.” Nearly all careful observers are
agreed that this notion is erroneous.
It probably arose from faulty observa-
tion. Dr. W. Reid Blair, director of the
New York Zoological park, says on this
subject: “In regard to the proverbial |
hug, the story is apparently devoid of
foundation. A bear, on account of its
anatomical structure. strikes round
with its paws as if grasping, and the
blow of its powerful arm drives its
claws into the body of its victim,which
action apparently gave rise to its hug-
ging reputation.”—Exchange.
; Feminine Punctuation
Of the national magazines especial-
ly devoted to the interest of women
and largely written by them 1 dis
cover none which applies even a mod-
erately civilized degree of editorial
restraint in the matter of purposeless
quotation marks.
Women—apparently without any
teaching or encouragement except
from each other—have evolved their
own idiom in the quotation mark, the
exclamation point, the dash, the un-
derline. So instinctive is many a
woman's use of these devices where
no man would think of using them
that one actually hears them con
stantly in her oral utterances. Femi-
nine punctuation alone can make a
statistical essay on insurance read like
baby talk.—Wilson Follett in the
Street of Monuments
«Victoria Embankment, London,”
writes “Looker-On” in the London
Daily Chronicle, “may well hold the

For variety, too, it takes a lot of sur-
passing. Monarchy fs represented at
each extremity by queens: Victoria
at Blackfriars and Boadicea at West-

scholars, poets, soldiers, journalists,
musicians and composite memorials.

could put on paper six of the names

of the Commonwealth, and - total
figures reveal that 22,714 legal

features of the season, although in
sections where does were not killed
last year the bucks were not up to
par. The illegal deer taken
totalled 1,098. It is to be remem-
bered that during the buck season
of 1927, 14,374 legal animals were
taken, Last year during the season

of 1927 when only 221 were killed.
Twenty-six illegal bears were taken,
Twelve legal and eight illegal elk
were taken. Last year only six
were killed,
A slight decrease was noted in
the kill of raccoons over last year,
but the figures greatly exceed the
kill of 1927. This year 37,600 were
taken; in 1928 41,008; and in 1927,

Quail dropped slightly despite the
fact that excellent reports of these
birds were noted both prior and
during the small , game season.
