William S. Glover Finds Profitable Investment in His Patri
otic Work; City Lot Used to Good Advantage
Few persons realize what the war
has done for this country in the mat
ter of promoting intensive agricul
tural efforts, especially in the re
stricted areas of the cities and towns.
William S. Glover can lay claim to
being one 01' the leading farmers of
Harrisburg. He lives at 333 Muencli
street and here is the story of his
season's trucking on a lot 18 by 75
I'eet, surrounded by board fences and
During leisure hours from his reg
ular employment he planted string
beans, pole beans, lima beans, beets,
cabbage, corn, parsley, and tomatoes
and after using on his family table
vegetables throughout the summer
and up to the thirtieth of September,
Mrs. Glover was able to can, preserve
and pickle 152 quarts of the excess
.yield of the vegetables named.
Mr. Glover says the total cost was
$2.55—51.95 for seeds, 50 cents for
manure n,nd 10 cents for spraying, i
Casualties of Great Propor
tions Inflicted on Enemy
in St. Quentin Area
With the British Army in France,
Oct. 2.—Yesterday was another day
Of victories for the fighting British
army. The Belgians also continued
their forward movement. Gains of
the greatest importance were made
by the Australians between Cambrai
and St. Quentin, and it seems that
they have crossed the canal every
where. Long lines of enemy trans
ports are fleeing east and northeast
ward from this region, as well as
other regions.
The day was an ideal one for fly
ing, and the British aviators, who
had not been busy for several days,
again came into tlieir own. The
planes flew low over the enemy,
masses and poured bullets by tens of
thousands into them, while at the
•same time bombers picked massed
troops as targets and often loosed
their projectiles on the transport
columns in full flight, inflicting ter
rible damage. The better visibility
also enabled the British gunners to
do more accurate work.
Once more casualties of great pro
portions have been inflicted on the
Germans, who now are fighting with
greatest desperation, realizing that
their position in this entire area is
more precarious than at any time
during the past four years.
True, there has been again the
hardest sort of close fighting astride
and in the Hindenburg system; but
back of here there is open country.
Joncourt now is well behind the
British lines after brisk lighting.
The lines are some distance east of
Levergles. Estrees, captured once
and then lost ir. a counterattack, has
now been taken again by storm. The
Australians smashed well eastward
of if, making sure of maintaining
their gain.
From here the battle line curves
hack northwestward, passing about
1.500 yards southwest of Gouey.
which also lias once been reached
by the allied troops but at the pres
ent moment is in German hands.
■The torch has been applied to
Cambrai and the town is burning
briskly. It is evident that the Ger
mans realize they must get away
from this locality, and consequently
they are burning Cambrai and other
places. Great tongues of flame and
billows of smoke are rising from

In the Argonne forest there has
been a strange blind struggle in the
very thickest part of the wooded

so dense that opposing platoons fil

being aware of it.
The Germans several times'utilized
these mistakes by turning machine
