w and with the co
operation of the
State Police to do
their utmost to prevent spread of
forest fires. Comparatively few
lires of any extent have occurred this
fall, but the conditions are favor
able for serious fires in many of
the wooded districts. The State
Forest Fire Service has been ex

in charge of large tracts of corpor

According to State Game Com
mission reports there have been
large issues of hunters' licenses and

Deer have been reported as un
usually numerous in some sections
of the state where they were al
most unknown ten years ago.

Corn and Potato Yields Less
Than Last Year, Depart
ment Says
Pennsylvania's wheat crop this
year is declared by the statistical
bureau of the State Department of
Agriculture, which has been secur
ing first hand information from
more than 700 crop reporters
throughout the state to be over
350,000 bushels less than that of
1917. The corn and potato crops
are also less than last year, but oats,
buckwheat and rye show gains and
tobacco is better than usual.
The statement by'L. H. Wible, the
statistician is that the wheat crop
will average 18.3 bushels per acre
and aggregate 26,023,674 against
19.1 bushels per acre and 26,386,796
last year. The yield is stated to be
"an agreeable surprise" in view of
weather conditions, while quality is
good. Lancaster ranks first in
wheat with York and Berks next,
Franklin losing third place. Rye
shows 17.5 bushels per acre as an
average and a total production of
4,676,500 against 4,573, 259 bushels
last year. Buckwheat, in which
Pennsylvania is believed to be the
leading state, shows a yield of 18%
bushels per acre with a total of
6,100,000 bushels against 5,570,000
in 1917. "Late rains improved the
ccfrn and the present forecast is that
the yield will approximate 90 per
cent, of an average crop or 36 bush
els per acre," says Mr. Wible, who
figures that on this basis the pro
duction will be 59,925,000 bushels
against 65,260,000. "This is the
most valuable cereal crop in flic
state. The acreage is probably tlio
largest ever planted" says he.
Oats is estimated at 39 bushels
per acre and a total of 44,105,214
bushels compared with 3 8,800,769
bushels last year. The quality is
good and the yield per acre ahead of
a ten year average.
Potatoes are declared to be the
poorest crop of all the staples and
will run under a five year average.
The estimate is for 21,000,000 bush
els compared to 31,653,000 last year.
The apple crop is about three fourths
of the normal and the peach crop
1,080,000 bushels, a seventy five per
cent. crop. The pear crop is fig
ured at 358,400 bushels, a "four
fifths crop."
The tobacco statement says pro
duction will be 1,372 pounds per
acre and a total yield of 56,444,000
pounds against 51,051,000 last year,
Lancaster leading. York ranks sec

The other day, a pretty girl of
eighteen stepped oft a train at
Washington. She carried a suit
case, and she beamed a delightful
smile of importance to which she
had every right. For was she not
at last in the national capital about
to embark on a coveted war job.
Before the train drew Into the
station she had been talking to an
elderly woman and she started up
and hurriedly secured her suitcase,
a knitting bag, books and what ap
peared to be, from its ribbon trap
pings, a box of candy. A moment
later she and her belongings were
deposited on the platform in rather
a scrambled fashion, and the train
steamed off.
The girl looked rather blank.
She had not realized how close she
was to her destination when she be
gan to talk to that elderly lady; she
had it in mind to ask her something
about boarding places in Washing
But the girl was not In a mood to
be long dismayed by anything, so,
with equal confidence, she went up
to a middle-aged man and asked If
he knew of a good boarding house,
not too expensive.
The man looked her over. She
was pretty as a picture, Inexperi
enced, evidently from the country
or some small town. She also sup
plied the information that she had
come to Washington to do war
He said he knew of such a board
ing house. Automatically he reached
for her suitcase, which she handed
over to him with the same confi
dence she might have shown to any
of her neighbors at home. Now,
perhaps the man was just as trust
worthy and respectable as one of
these home town friends, but the
incident had been observed by one
who was taking no chances.
A moment later, a woman con
nected with the Travelers' Aid So
ciety had darted up to the couple,
taken the girl and the suitcase un
der her charge, and the man, who
may or may not have been trust
worthy, disappeared. The girl then
made the startling announncement
that she had come to Washington
without any idea of where she was
going to stop; that she knew no one
and had no letters of introduction.
\o, She Was Not An Orphnn.
I No, she was not an orphan, nor a
foundling, nor a despised stepchild,
nor anything like that. There were
a mother and a father "back home"
and a couple of younger brothers;
and they were all devoted and so
Interested in sister's coming to
Washington to take the war job.
But not one of them liad taken the
precaution to do the least investiga

ing place.
"Back home" every one knew ev
ery one else, and a spirit of kindli
ness and neighborliness prevailed,
which, apparently, the family re
garded as world-wide.
This Babes-in-the-Woods point of
view in regard to a daughter's wel
fare is by no means unusual. There
are mothers who never seem to re
gard the possibility of lightning
striking their own household.
They take the most blood-curdling
chances in regard to their daugh
ter's associates, amusements and
environment and when something
does go wrong they have a feeling
that fate has been unnecessarily
cruel in singling out so careful a

Girls of the giggling age invade
the movies, in troops, with never a

the least restraint on the innocent

these days, stimulation that results
in tender emotions and the letting

in the world's history w'aen the
presence of the despised chaperon
is required, it is these days when
nothing appears in its true propor
As far as the soldier boys are
concerned, it is only too often a
case of "the feinaie of the species
is more deadly than the male."
Sammy would be content to go his
way if the girl did not so often
block it with her smiling attentions.
The other day in a cafe where
the unusually crowded conditions
resulted in a group, chiefly stran
gers, sitting at the same table, I
noticed two girls trying to attract
the attention of a good-looking boy
in uniform. Completely absorbed
in his newspaper, he was unaware
of them. They stared, giggled and
talked loudly of things they im
agined would interest him—but he
kept on reading.
Finally, when he paused long j
enough to turn the page, one oi
the girls said; "Soldier boy, don't |
you think it rude to read a paper
when ladies are present?"
He smiled rather gravely, put the
paper aside and the girls opened a
barrage of small talk. He was po-
Lite, but he did not appear to be
especially interested. Perhaps he
had just said good-bye to some one
in whom he was deeply interested.
The girls continued their talk, they
asked if he knew any one in town;
he said he did not, and they finally
asked him to take them to a dance
that evening.
The address they gave was In an
excellent neighborhood, and later,
through a curious succession of cir
cumstances, I discovered that both
girls were highly respectable and
belonged to good families. I don't
know whether the soldier boy took
them to the dance or not; his atti
tude, while courteous, was distinctly
barricaded, and I wondered at ttfe
hardihood of temperament that en
abled them to court such a rebuff.
Ignorance and innocence are no
longer synonymous terms, and ev
ery girl has a feeling that she can
take care of herself; the millions
that have come to grief have had it.
Let the careful mother reflect on
some of the dangers that she es
caped in her youth, and if there
have been none, she might with
profit read the daily papers, then
turn them over to her daughters.
