Haig Men Make It Impossible
For Foe to Meet New
Washington, Nov. 9.—Capture of
Maubeuge by the British, General
'March said to-day, marks the defi
nite severance of the last German
artery to that seetofr of the west
front and will make it impossible
for the enemy to shift his forces to
meet a new attack.
Summarizing the Allied successes
since the inauguration of the for
ward movement, General March
pointed out that the Germans have
been driven sixty-four miles farther
from Paris and the territory they
occupy in. France has been reduced
from 10,000 square miles to less than
The American First army under
General Pershing has advanced
thirty miles in ihe last eight days.
Denounces Fake Dispatch
General March characterized the
publication of the erroneous an
nouncement of, the armistice as
"very bad for the military program
of the United States." For instance,
he said, in New York, the stevedores
who were engaged in loading very
essential supplies for the expedition
ary forces, stop'ped work and did not
return at all on that day or the next
day and army food thus
were delayed.
In commenting on tills incident
the chief of staff made the statement
that tlie American Army will lie in
France for sonic time even when
peace Is declared.

Price of Boston Papers
Go Up at Week's End
Boston, Nov. 9. —Publishers of
Boston daily and Sunday papers
voted to-day to advance the price
next Friday to 2 cents mousing and
evening, and 6 anij 7 cents on Sun
days. To-day all the Boston evening
papers sell for 1 cent, except thqj
Transcript, which charges 3 cents,
and all the morning papers for 1
cent except the Boston Globe, which
sells for 2 cents, and the Christian
Science Monitor, which sells for 3
cents. All the Sunday papers sell
for 5 cents.
Boston is the only large city in
the country in which there still re
mained 1-cent newspapers, and the!
increase to 2 cents has been under
consideration for some time. Largely
increased operating expenses and the
jumping prlqe of print paper have
made the 1-cent paper impossible.
Youthful Thespians Give
Vaudeville For Belgians
The Keystone Entertainers, an or- j
ganization of five youthful thespians ]
residing in East State street, made
their debut in a series of entertain
ments the last few evenings at the I
"Williams Playhouse," 1723 Apricot |
street, the entire proceeds of which !
go to* the Belgian Relief Fund. A
neat sum was realized.
Interspersed with lantern pictures,
some vaudeville stunts were cleverly
presmited, a change of program oc
curring nightly. A notable feature
of Thursday evening's performance
was the human mummy doll, 27
inches high, born in Africa in 1784,
and now speaking English lluently
as it danced the latest "bunny-hug."
Last evening's .headliner was the
Capture of Sedan, three-act war
drama in miniature, showing the
several military encampments, the
forts in action, the' hovering air
planes, the gunboats plying the river
Meuse; concluding with the onrush
of the, American soldiers, the demo
i lition of the enemy fortiiications and
i the surrender of the Germans.
Those participating were Craig
1 Williams, David Chidsey, George
i Bennett, David Downin and Don
| Nlssley.

have the collections of ashes., made
1 oftener next year at least during the
winter months. Numerous com
.plaints have been received here,
i !t wll! cost 'he city more money,

Behind In Schedules
At present collections are being
| made, according tc officials of the
; Hureau of Ash uhd Garbage Insptc
; tion. by a fifteen-day schedule Dur
i lng the lust month there was some
I difficulty In maintaining this ar
! r'angement thev said due to the epl
i demic of Influenza, which caused the
death of two of the collection force
J and at times had many of the other
i men at home sick. November t.
' however, the eolection gangs wiii
] start at Market street, working north
| and south as usual,
j Officials of the bureau have rc
! quested householders to provide from
j four to six receptacles holding from
one to one and one-half bushels each.
I They said_ that with collections every
two week's, one or two receptacles
would not hold the accumulation of
■ aslies. Co-operation on the part of
I the household's will be a big help
[ in meeting this condition, they said.
May Collect Rubbish
It was also announced that an
I ordinance may be Introduced in
j Council in a week or two which
Will be effective beginning January 1

j hotels and restaurants, fire company
, houses and other places not includ-
I ed in the present agreement. Wheth
er Council will approve this plan of
ficials could not say, but a number
of proprietors of hotels and res
taurants during the year have made
complaints because the ashes and
j rubbish has not been taken from
I their places.
! Another plan which may be pro
posed would be to have weekly col-
I lections for apartment houses and
I other larger buildings* where the
amount of coal used is greater and
I the ashes accumulate in larger quarr
] titles. Officials said that collections
j every two weeks for these places do
I not prove as satisfactory as collec-

Reichstag Leaders to Know
Jt is regarded probable in/well informed circles that Prince
Maximilian, the German imperial chancellor, will to-day com
municate the terms of the armistice to a committee of Reichstag
party leaders and will himself convey their vote to authorize the
plenipotentiaries .to sign the armistice.
Germany May Use Wireless
It is probable that the German reply to the Allied terms for
an armistice will be brought back by the same courier that took
them to German headquarters at Spa yesterday. Under the cir
cumstances, it is believed the reply cannot he delivered before
the middle of this afternoon, at the very earliest.
The German government, however, may use the wireless, in
which ease the plenipotentiaries at Marshal Foch's headquarters
will have only to ratify the decision thus conveyed to them.

Lieut. T. H. Gilland Ordered
to Medical Service at Fort
Ogelthorpe, Georgia
Gettysburg, Nov. 9. —C. S.
Starner, of near Aspers, in the
northern part of the county, is hav
esting the second crop of apples
from some of the trees on his place.
He has five Smokehouse apple trees,
six years old, and have, blossomed
twice this year and are now bearing
their second crop of perfect fruit,
although not as large as the first <
crop. Some of the apples are as
large as hulled walnuts and have
good color. The blossoms appeared
just as the first apples wore ripe. Mr.
Starner is also having a delicacy of
fresh green peas at this time of the
j year, having picked a half peck from
the vines in his garden for his Sun
day dinner.—l,. M. Wetzel, of Orr
tanna, Is the proud o\vner of a small
piece of a German airplane. The lit-,
tie niece of the machine was sent
to him by Harry M. Taylor, a mem
ber of the Seventh Machine Gun
Battalion in Pr ence jvho was here *
with the troops last summer and
who during the time he was in camp
was a frequent visitor at the Wet
zel home. The souvenir came across
in a letter and Taylor says ho
might have sent the whole plane if
it were not for the "strict military
regulations." To meet each other
on the battlefields of France was the
good fortune of two soldier brothers
of Adams county, John Markle, of
Abbottstown, receiving a letter from
his brother. Private Curvin Markle,
of Company B, 812 th Machine Gun
Huttalion, saying that he saw an
other brother in'the service, Private
I Percy Markle, over there, but only
for a short time, as they are in dit
| l'erent commands and only met by
I chance. —To accommodate the men
j who might want to go hunting on
the opening day of the rabbit seu
■ son, the liev. W. W. Whalen, pastor
! of St. Ignatus Catholic Church, at
' Buchanan Valley, in the heart of the
hunting section of'the county, held
an eariy mass at 6 o'clock. —Donald
Kuhn, 5-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs, C. E. Kuhn, of Cashtown, had
j a narrow escape from death. As his
i father was coming from the field
I with a load of corn his children went
j to meet him and the 5-yeur-old son
I was running along the side of the
wagon when he slipped and fell un
der the back wheel. Mr. Kuhn did
not see the boy until the wheel was
on the boy's body. A physician was
i summoned but could not find any
i indication of the lad being very ser
| iously hurt.—Clarence G. Smith, who
! for many years has successfully
j raised bees at nis home in McSher
i rystown, has decided to discontinue
| the business and dispose of the col
onies. The bees are choice Italian
stock and were formerly owned by
the Kev. Mr. Haftermeyer, at Cone
i wago Chapel, who valued them so
highly that he made disposition of
them in his will. This variety of bee
is a wonderfully active and thorough
worker, and each year the hives pro
duce an abundance of fine,
honey.—Littlestown is to have a new*
postmaster. Dr. C. P. Gettler, who
