Finding of Honey Solves
Sugar Problem For Family
Mechnnlcsburg, Pa., Aug. 21.—The
sugar problem is solved for some
time for John Culp, Jr., of near Rox
bury, by a large swarm of bees which
gave him honey enough for a long
time. The bees were working in the
cornice of the roof, making it dan
gerous for persons to be in that lo
cality, Finally, Sir. Culp decided to
get rid of the insects and with the
assistance of John Myers, of Mechan
icsburg, succeeded in opening the
cornice and to their surprise re
moved about forty pounds of honey
and the next evening practically the
same amout was obtained. The find
is of especial value at this time,
when sugar is scarce.

Home of Co. G, Eighth Regi
ment, Held by ex-Members
of Command During War
Carlisle, Pa., Aug. 21.—T0 care for
the Armory here, used as the home
of Company G. Eighth Regiment. Na
tional Gqards of Pennsylvania during
the absence of the members in active
service in France, former members
of this organization and of the Gobin
Guards Association, the civic organ
ization of the company, have formed
themselves into an association.
The Armory here was built by pub
lic subscription and was the property
of the Gobin Guards Association, a
civic body, membership in which was
also vested in the men in service
with Company G, of the Eighth Regi
ment. When a man ceased to be a
member of the 'Eighth, through trans
fer or discharge, his membership in
the Gobin Guards ceased. As a con
sequence, when Company G was mus
tered into Federal service, as the
bylaws are interpreted by a num
ber of former members, the Gobin
Guards Association went out of exis
tence. '
The new organization contains
many of the famous guardsmen of
other years and is headed by W. G.
Speck, of Carlisle, for many years
lieutenant-colonel of the Eighth.

Sinks Three Vessels
Vessels known to have been sunk
by the converted raider are the Una
P. Saunders, of Lunenburg; the A.
Piall Andrew, of Gloucester, Mass.,
and* the Francis J. O'Hara, of Bos
Captain Wallace Bruce, master of
the A. Piatt Andrew, said on his
arrival here that his vessel was
help up by the Triumph yesterday
afternoon and that he and his crew
were given ten minutes to leave the
ship. The Germans then sank her
with bombs.
Crews Reach Port in Dorics . .
The raider than bore down upon
the Una P. Saunders and the Fran
cis J. O'Hara and sank them like
wise. The dories carrying the
crews of the three vessels reached
here at 10 a. m. to-day. The fisher
men say that while making for this
port they heard firing and believed
other fishing vessels were sunk by
the raider.
Captain Myrrhe, master of the
Triumph, who landed here with his
men this morning, said he was told j
by the captain of the submarine
which captured his vessel that his
was only one of six U-boats operat
ing on this coast.
"We intend to destroy the fishing
fleets," the German commander said
to Captain Myrrhe.
An Atlantic Port. Aug. 21.—A Ger
man submarine late yesterday seized
the big fishing trawler Triumph.
The crew, who have reached shore
safely, said they believe the Germans
intend to use the trawler as a raider.
The fishermen reported that the Ü
boat is "playing havoc" with the
fleet of fishing vessels on the Grand
The Triumph was halted on the
fishing banks by the U-boat and the
crew was permitted to take to the
dories. The fishermen said the
trawler still was afloat when they
last saw her. An .armed guard of
Germans had been placed aboard
and no preparations were being
made to sink the ship, the Triumph's
men said. This led to the conclusion
that the Germans intended to use
her as a raider.
The Triumph is owned by the
North Atlantic Fisheries Company
and is one of the crack boats of the
Boston, Aug. 21.—Fishermen here
said to-day that if the German sub
marine made use of the trawler
Triumph seized yesterday as a raider
they would have to recoal the craft
at least every ten days. The Tri
umph is manned entirely by a Ca
nadian crew and is owned by a Ca
nadian company. The vessel is 125
feet in length, 15 feet deep with a
22-foot beam, and registers about
250 tons gross.
Fishermen said ;he scene of the
attack undoubtedly was oil the
western b/nks, off the Nova Scotia
■ coast, in the open sea and outside
the three-mile zone of Canadian
waters. New Englahd vessels have
not visited the western banks since
German submarines were first re
ported in the Bay of Fundy several
weeks ago.

s i
• * ' / . 1 '
ON SUNDAY, August 25, the PUBLIC LEDGER will issue a special Pennsylvania
Hero Section, devoted to a description of the heroic deeds with which Pennsyl
vania's soldiers have distinguished themselves in France.
% *
It will be the first complete publication of all the stories of individual heroism
that have been reported separately by Raymond G. Carroll, the news associations and
official dispatches. ,
It will contain photographs of Pennsylvanians killed, missing, decorated or to be
decorated —an Honor Roll of undying fame.
It will give the history and personnel of Pennsylvania regiments in the firing line
<■— where they organized, where and when they were trained, when sent overseas, what
they have done in battle.
There will be letters from soldiers in France to their "home folks" over here,
letters telling just what our boys think of it all.
In future years this supplement will become a treasured memento in every
Pennsylvania home fortunate enough to possess a copy. <
Nothing like this Hero Section has been published since the war began.
Every home with a man in the army will want one or more copies, regardless of
ordinary newspaper preferences. This demand is certain to quickly exhaust the edition.
To avoid disappointment, notify your dealer immediately to reserve your copy.
