K3 M .1 Daniel L. Lefean
in response to an
inquiry from the commissioner as to
how associations should proceed.
4 If the present holdings of Liberty
Bonds was made because the build
ing and loan association believed it
■ had the legal right to so invest under
' the act of 191" and thatdhe amount
so obtained and held does not affect
♦ the ability of the association to meet
present demands, you should not in
sist upon their disposal of such
bonds," says the attorney. "But
should suggest that wherever pos
sible they should be used in distribu
tion in lieu of cash. In such cases
where such holdings have absorbed
the assets of the association to such
an extent that demanding stock
holders can not obtain moneys to
which they are legally entitled and
will not accept such bonds in lieu of
cash, the association must produce
the money. But I can not too earnest
ly suggest that wherever associations
have bought they should be used
•wherever possible in lieu of cash in
the transaction of its business.
Mr. Lafean said that associations
had been writing to him asking for
Buckwheat Is In—Ths buckwheat

Agriculture expect to see Pennsyl

A Vigorous Healthy Body,
Sparkling Eyes and Health-
Colored Cheeks Come in Two
Weeks, Says Discoverer of
World's Grandest Health
Builder Costs Nothing
Ur.l ess It Gives to
Women the Buoyant
Health They Long for.
It is safe to 6ay that right herd In
Vjis big city are tens of thousands of
'steak, nervous, run-down, depressed
women who in two weeks' time could
make themselves so healthy, so attrac
tive and so keen-minded that they
would compel the admiration of all
their friends.
The vital health building elements
that these despondent women lack ere
all plentifully supplied in Bio-feren.
If you are ambitious, crave success
in life, want to have a healthy, vigor
ous body, clear skin and eyes that
show no dullness, make up your mind
to get a package of Bio-feren right
' away.
It costs but little and you can get
an original package at any druggist
Take two tablets after each meal
and one at bedtime—seven a day for
seven days—then one after meals till
all are gone. Then If you don't feel
twice as good, look twice as attractive
, and feel twice as strong as before you
itarted, your money is waiting for you.
It belongs to you, for the discoverer
of Bio-feren doesn't want one penny
of it unless it fulfills all claims.
Note to Physicians! There Is no
secret about the formula of Bio-feren,
It is printed on every package. Here
it is: Lecithin; Calcium Glycero-phos

Governor Has Visitors —Governor
Brumbaugh is spending the week
end in Harrisburg with his house
guests at the Executive Mansion.
Many Fish Shipped —Shipment of
fish for stocking of streams is under
way at practically everyone of the
state's tish hatcheries and in spite
of the labor shortage and the diffi
culties of transportation. Commis
sioner of Fisheries Nathan R. Buller
has reported good results being ob
tained. "Trout shipments this fall
have exceeded expectations," said he.
"At the middle of August we did not
expect to be able to do much, but
we have accomplished results and
placed trout in streams where I am
surb they will provide excellent sport
for the first time in years. This is in
n great measure due to the interest
sportwnen are taking. We have sent
out over a million young trout, all
from three hatcheries and the re
ports are uniformly good. Bass and
bluegills are being distributed in
large numbers and Torresdale has
started shipping out cattish. Tho
bass we have sent out are fairly well
grown and I look for good results.
We have been pretty successful in
hatching bass and have been for
tunate in getting men who were in
terested to receive shipments and
distribute the tish to best advan
tage. Pleasant Mount is now ship
ping out bass, while Union yjity is
sending-out trout and bass."
Work Goes Ahead —Repair work
on the Lincoln Highway is being
rushed by the whole force of the
State Highway Department. The
worst places have been found in
, Fulton, Franklin and Bedford coun
! Board Meeting Changed- —The Oe
[ tober meeting of the State Board of
I Pardons fixed for October 16, was
! to-day postponed until Tuesday, Oc
tober 29. "It has been deemed wise
| because of the prevelance of influ
j enza to postpone the meeting," said
i Secretary George D. Thorn, to-day.
j should Re-cxaminc —Major W. G.
j Murdock to-day issued this notice
! to all local and district draft boards:
j "The attention of Examining physi
! eians is called to the fact that when
i registrants are called for exantina
i tion after the epidemic of influenza,
some of them may present one or
| more of the after effects, especially
I in the lungs. Where registrants pre-
Isent such temporary defects the men
[should be called for a second exarn-
I lnation at a later period."
i Need Army Doctors Adjutant
! General Be&ry to-day called upon
| the bommandant at Camp Crane at
jAllentown for additional medical of- ■
: licers. Over a dozen army doctors
I were detailed to assist the state in :
righting influenza in the coal fields '
I yesterday, but it is understood that
; the state authorities are asking for
! seventy more. The state arsenal last
night sent out on rush orders from
General Beary tent hospital units to
Tremont, Tower City and Pottsville,
the orders being the second for the
| two latter places.
Candidate Withdraws—Victor E.
j Francis, Prohibition candidate for
the House in the Second Fayette dis
trict. has filed his withdrawal.
; Now Sergeant—Harry K. Weider
| has been appointed sergeant in the
'quartermaster department of the
Keserve Militia.
Women Notaries—More. women
[ have been appointed notaries public
lin the last year than ever known
: in any similar period at the State
| Capitol. The number of notaries
| named has also increased and at the
i same time many whose terms ended
j this year have been recommissioned,
| Officials at the State Department say
I that the chief reason for the in
crease was the war because it has
j increased the needs for notaries ow
ing to the draft and other work
I where affidavits are required and
i because women are needed to re
| place men who have gone into the
j military service. There will be an
unusually large number of notaries'
j names sent to the next Senate for
| confirmation.
Plione Calls Chit—Appeals to peo
ple connected with the State Govern
ment to use the telephone as little as
I possible because influenza has made
telephone exchanges short handed
j has, resulted in a material reduc
tion of telephone calls from the
[ State House this week. Many
! messages which heretofore went by
' long distance telephone have been
j sent by telegraph.

Yesterday the entrance of j
Steeiton Chapter, American Red J
Cross, into the fight against the
"flue," almost their first step being
to call for volunteers to war on the
disease which appeal was responded
liberally. A registration station
for receiving volunteer workers was
established yesterday at Fairlamb's
i store, Front and Market streets,
j Some registered there in person and
1 some by telephone all during the

j Tlie new Cottage Hill Emergency
j Hospital has thirty-five cases al
ready, and twenty-five new ones are
expected to-day. Assisting the doc
tors there supplied by the state are
a squad of volunteer nurses and at
tendants under the supervision of
Mrs. Imhoff. Men who volunteer
will be used for night work at the

A house to house canvass of the in
fluenza situation already started by
the polite, will • furnish the most
complete data on fhe same so far
obtained. One third of the borough
was covered by them yesterday
which resulted in recording the
names of 902 sufferers from the dis
ease. In one house visited ten cases
of influenza were found out of eleven
living there. Some other houses vis
ited by the police had five, six and
seven cases of the disease. That all
estimates of the number of sufferers
from the disease will be shattered is
the view of Chief of Police Grove,
who said that ther were no signs of
the epidemic subsiding yesterday.
The latter put a ban on roller skat
ing last night as well as coasters and
express wagons until the disease col
lapses. Though the open air is good
for the kiddies, complaints have
come to that official that the noises
from these pastimes disturbs the
sick and on this account they will
be prohibited until things are nor
mal again.
The total deaths reached ten yes
terday when three persons died
from the disease. The latter were
Patrick Kearney, 50 years old; An
tonio Donatella, 19 years of age, and
Mike Serafina, 38 years old. The

Thirty Beds Made Ready For

' Epidemic
The official personnel of the staff
of the new Emergency Hospital at
Cottage Hill was announced this
morning. It is headed by Captain
11. C. Battley, who has complete
command of the temporary institu
tion. Dr. W. J. Middleton is chief
of the staff of physicians. Assistant
to Captain Battley in the capacity
of safety engineer is W. E. Chick,
upon whose shoulders will fall a
large share of the executive respon
sibilities of the hospital The State
Board of Health has sent one of its
best-equipped nurses to Cottage Hill
in the person of Mrs. Mitchell, who
will have supervision of the rilirsing
staff at the hospital.
The Emergency Hospital is now
eqtiipped with 100 beds, thirty-nine
of which are already occupied by
I patients.
Hereafter, it is announced, all I
prospective hospital patients will j
first have to undergo an official j
diagnosis of their cases by physi- j
cians before they will be permitted j
entrance to the improvised hospital, j
Such a ruling has been found lm-1
perative owing to the fact that many |
here who are suffering from minor
ailments wholly outside the in-1
fluenza'class are seeking admittance!
to the institution when neither j
their condition nor the character of I
their complaints warrant their ac- j
ceptance there. The hospital is j
strictly for sufferers from the epi-!
|demic and none but these will be j
! admitted.
f Local doctors combating the'
I scourge have asked Superintendent!
lof Schools L. E. McGinnis to Issue j
i a call for volunteers among the |
j teachers to help in stamping out i
| the disease. Such teachers as re
i spond will be put to work as
! nurses' aids. Another move some- j
j what in the same direction was that i
!of Charles Davis, principal (jf tile
Steeiton High School, who called!
| for volunteers among the students to
iact as helpers on ambuhinces.
I Many of the boys responded to the
I call.
1 Physicians here have sent out
j urgent requests that all professional
I calls on them be made as early as
possible in the morning.

Your Battery's Lease of Life
Your battery's usefulness depends on the
way you treat it, but even the best of care
won't make a poorly insulated battery stand
up through a long busy life. ,
The Still Better Willard, with ordinary
care gives a good deal more than ordinary
service and a great deal longer than ordinary
One of the reasons why this is so is that
this battery has Threaded Rubber Insulation
—which indefinitely postpones need of re
• insulating.
