Xaptured Enemy Order, Sign
ed "I.udendorff," Admits
Retreat Necessary
By Associoted Press
With the British Army in Prance,
Aug. 14.—A captured enemy secret
order signed "LudendorfT," lays
stress on the necessity of economis
ing men. The order asserts that the
two elements essential to the future
conduct of the war are to "maintain
everywhere our fighting strength and
the spirit of offensive."
The document wus issued late in
Xu ne.
"It is essential,", says the order,
"that all commanders of whatever
rank, as well as all troops, should
be imhued with the Idea that the
■war cannot be won by a stubborn
defense, but only by a further suc
cession of vigorous attacks.
"It is absolutely essential that we
should avoid our old fault of at
tacking in too dense formations and
we should reduce our casualties by
every possible means."
Cannot Hold Lines
The order is frank in explaining
that, because of the reduced Ger
man strength, it frequently will be
Impossible to hold continuous trench
lines and recommends instead the
creation of centers of resistance.
The doctiment warns commanders
that should the enemy obtain a foot

Removes Hairy Growths
Without Pain or Bother
(Modes of Today)
It is not necessal-y to use a painful
process to remove hairy growths, for
with a little delatone handy you can
keep the skin entirely free from these,
beauty destroyers. To remove hair,
make a stiff paste with a little pow
dered delatone and water. Spread
this on the hairy surface and in
• about two minutes rub off, wash the
skin and the hairs are gone. To
guard against disappointment, be
caieful to get i"?al delatone.

Grasping at the last straw, the

! Concrete Ships Win
Approval of United States
Atlantic City, Aug. 14. —The un
qualified declaration that the United
States Shipping Board is convinced
of the practicability of concrete
cargo carriers and proposes to build
them upon a more extensive scale,
was made yesterday by H. J. Bru-
I nier, of San Francisco, supervisor of
concrete ship construction for the
Emergency Fleet Corporation. Mr.
Brunier said:
"Forty-two concrete ships provid

Coinage of Cents
Doubled in Year
New York. Aug. 14. 'The an,
nouncement from Washington that
445,000,000 one-cent pieces were
coined by the Government in the
fiscal year 1918, lends interest to a
compilation by the Natiohal City
Bank of New York regarding the
country's growing demand for these
little coins, of which the 1918 out
put was the largest on record.
The bank's statement shows that
that number of one-cent coins manu
factured bv the mints of the United
States from 1793 to the end of the
fiscal year 1918. was 3.483.000.000.
while the number issued in the last
six years is, in round numbers. The number of one
cent pieces coined never touched the
100.000.000 line in any year prior to
1907; the annual average from that
time to 1918 was nearly 100,000.000
per vear; in 1917. 213.500,000, and in
1918. 445.228.201 pieces. It is quite
probable that out of the 3,483,000.000
one-cent pieces coined by the Gov
ernment. not more than about 2.400,-
000.000 are now in existence, or at
least in circulation.

■Plans For Midwinter Exhibi
tion Well Under Way
in Many Sections
An elaborate display of small
grains and the different forage crops
will be an added feature of the State
Farm Products Show which will be
held at Harrisburg on January 21,
22, 23 and 24. under the auspices
of the State Department of Agri
culture and allied state organiza
In addition to the corn, fruit, po
tato. vegetable, wool, poultry, eggs
and dairy products which have fea
tured the display during the past
few years, the executive committee
at a meeting this week decided to
feature a small grains display show
ing wheat, rye, oats, buckwheat,
barley and soy beans, with displays
of a peck each. The forage crop
display will show the different types
of hay, consisting of alfalfa, timo
thy and the clovers.
The poultry and egg display will
bo much larger than last year and
efforts will be made to enlist greater
interest in the industry and to bring
about a much larger number of
poultry 'keepers next year. Every
indication points that the corn ex
hibit will be at least twice the size of
last year. The corn from the vari
ous counties will be collected by the
County Farm Bureau agents and
sent direct from their offices in or
der that the county displays may be
kept together and the classification
will be more complete.
The increased interest in the sheep
industry throughout the state prom
ises to make the wool end of the
show one of the most important and
an educational feature will be added'
by showing various types of sheep
| from which the clip or fleece has
i been taken. The sheep and the|
fleece will form an Important part
cf the wool display and farmers
be able to distinguish the value of
the different breeds as to their wool
giving qualities.
The apple display will have a
number of additions and some
change in the entry list, but prom
ises to attract many growers who
have not exhibited at former shows
The new State Potato Growers As
sociation is planning one of the larg
est display of potatoes ever held in

Zoologist Sanders Gives Infor
mation About the Corn
Root Aphid
General complaints from some
sections of the state of damage be
ing done the rorn by the torn root
aphids have been reported to the
Department of Agriculture within
the past few weeks.
Rotation of crops is the only
method of Obtaining relief from the
pest, according to Economic Zoolo
gist J. G. Sanders. Professor San
ders says:
"We have had considerable com
plaint this season about the corn
root aphids. This insect has un in
teresting iife history. If the nests of
the small brown ants, which are so
abundant in cornfields infested with
corn root aphids, be carefully exam
ined during the winter, there will be
found stored in the "nest many small
black aphid eggs. These the ants
move up and down according to the
weather, the colder it is the deeper
they go to keep the eggs in unfrozen
"In April and May with the ap
pearance of smartweed and foxtail
grass the eggs begin to hatch. The
ants at once get in touch with the
roots of these plants, and preparing
a place for them, bring the aphicls
to feed upon these roots. Later they
are transferred to the corn but
should the field not be planted to
corn the aphids will feed upon the
roots of pigeon grass or purslane.
"In May the second generation of
aphids commence to appear both
winged and wingless forms. This
and succeeding broods are produced
by agamic females which do not re
quire sexual intercourse to give
birth to live adults. These multiply
very rapidlv. One of these agamic
females commences to reproduce in
eight days after birth.
"These are herded on the corn
roots by thcTants who milk them by
stroking them with their antennae.
The aphids respond to this gentle
caressing by exuding a honey dew
upon which the ants greedily feed.
"In late September and October
true males and females are pro
duced which mate and later eggs are
laid which the ants carefully store in
the ground and from which aphids
hatch the following spring.
"The only method of obtaining re
lief from this pest is to rotate

Demands That Atlantic Coast
Equal Western Plants in
Increase of Tonnage
Philadelphia, Aug. 14.—T0 speed up
production of the eastern shipyards
and to point out the necessity for
putting every ounce of energy and
enthusiasm into the great task of
building a bridge of ships across the
Atlantic, Charles M. Schwab, director
general of the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration. called a meeting of ship
builders in the east.
The meeting will be held at Mr.
Schwab's office in this city next Mon
day and will be attended by the
heads of ail the large yards on the
Atlantic coast. With his character
istic energy and enthusiasm. Mr.
Schwab said yesterday:
Must Increase Tonnage
"We want speed, the eastern yards
must enthuse. They must increase
production. They must put all their
efforts into the task. . 1 want them
to speed up and that is why I am
calling this meeting.
"I want to see the yards here, as
well as those on the Great Lakes and
Pacific coast. I want to speed up the
eastern yards, and I am making every
effort to get production in those yards
on a par with the western plants."
The Great Lakes Engineering Com
pany, which is building ships for the
Fleet corporation at its yards at Ash
tatklla, 0,, and Eoorse, Mich., i:|
ninety days ahead of its program. It
will launch six ships of 4,000 tons
deadweight this month. A. C. Pes
sano, chairman of the company, was
a caller at the Fleet corporation yes
terday. making a report of progress
and calling for more steel.
Steel Situation Improves
The steel situation is coming along
very well, according to Mr. Schwab.
While the yards on the Atlantic coast
are fairly well supplied, those on the
Great Lakes and Pacific coast are not
getting shipments fast enough to'
keep up with their advanced produc
tion schedule, according to the direc
tor general.
"The War Industries Board," con
tinued Mr. Schwab, "is working with
us in a most satisfactory manner.
While we could use more steel, they
are giving us all that we could ex
pect at this time.
"There are to-day In the United
States 450 ways that are turning out
steel ships. They will absorb all of
the resources of the country for the
present. I have endeavored to bal
ance the ship production with the
steel resources, including the manu
facture of engines, boilers and shaft
ing and the numerous minor parts
that go to make up the complete and
fully equipped vessel,"

J. Aldus Herr Gives Some
Advice Regarding Next
Season's Crop
The wheat and much of the oats
crop of Pennsylvania has been har
vested and not in a long time has
there been such favorable weather
for the gathering of these two crops.
In certain sections of Pennsylvania
there is generally a little lull in farm
work following the wheat and oats
"I would advise all farmers wher
ever possible just as soon as they
possibly to plow their soil that
will be sown to winter wheat," says
J. Aldus Herr, farm adviser of the
State Department of Agriculture. "I
would plow it deep and cultivate it
once or twice soon afterwards. In
the preparation of a good seed bed
not all depends on plowing, or in
other words, the turning of the fur
row, but after you have that part of
the work done the actual prepara
tion of the seed bed only begins. It
is by periodical harrowing to reduce
the particles of soil which will
greatly help to retain the moisture
and also to give good capillary at
traction which would aid very ma
terially in the germination of the
"Many farmers have learned by
sad experience during the last year
that much of their soil lacked mois
ture after the grain was sown and
the wheat did not germinate end
stool as it should to prepare it to go
through the conditions of a severe
winter. This cadi very materially be
improved by a thorough preparation
of the seed bed harrowing, har
rowing and harrowing. I actually
believe that one-half of our diffi
culties are caused by our own neg
lect in not plowing our soil soon
enough and giving it thorough cul
tivation. We are inclined to have
our soil too loose and much of the
wheat becomes covered too deeply,
hindering it from quick germination
and proper stooling.
"The wheat plant requires certain
protection during the winter and the
fields should be fairly well covered
with growth before the ground
freezes up for the winter. This
helps to hold the snow and protects
it from the winds and freezing win
ter weather.
"My experience has been that the
earlier we plow our ground for any
crop, granting, of course, that the
ground is in good condition to plow,
the better will be the prospects for
a good crop. A vfery large percent
age of farmers take no precaution
whatever with their seed ' wheat.
This is very vital and should be
given great consideration. It has
been the writer's custom for quite
a number of years to have his seed
wheat graded thoroughly. Some
millers are equipped to do it for the
farmer at a cost of about two cents
a bushel. In some communities
there are small machines owned hy
individual farmers who make it a
business to clean seed wheat going
from farm to farm and charging a
few cents per bushel for the work.
This certainly Is a good practice."

Alkali in Soap
Bad For the Hair
Soap should be used very carefully.
If you want to keep your hair look
ing its best. Most soaps and pre- ,
pared shampoos contain too much
alkali. This dries the scalp, maken
the hair brittle, and ruins it
The best thing for steady use Is
Just ordinary mulsifled cocoanut oil
(which Is pure and greaseless), and
Is better than the most expensive
soap or anything else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thor
oughly. Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it in. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
which rinses out easily, removing
every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and It leaves the
scalp soft, and the hair fine and
silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy
to manage.
You can get mulsifled cocoanut oil
at any pharmacy, it's very cheap, and
a few ounces will supply every mem
ber of the family for months.

Price Advance
For over a year now we
have succeeded in main
taining our old prices,
principally by virtue of a
big increase in sales,
which reduced our over
head cost. ,
For our fiscal year end
ing July 1, 1918, our sales
amounted to over a mil
lion dollars—an increase
of 58% over the preced
ing year.
*We had hoped to bridge
the war period without a
change in prices on

but we find that our econ

with our rising coats. It is
with sincere regret, there
