Senator Frank A. Smith
Takes the Oath Today
Senator Frank A. Smith, who suc
ceeds to the seat long occupied by
Lieutenant-Governor E. E. Beidle
man, was sworn In late this after
noon. The ceremony was postponed
from last evening because of the
absence of Lieutenant - Governor
Beidleman, who delivered an ad
dress at the annual dinner of the St.
David Society in Scranton last night.
Mr. Beidleman desired the pleasure
of presiding over the Senate when
Look, Mother! Is ' tongue
coated, breath feverish and
stomach sour?
Cleanse the little liver and
bowels and they get well
When your c-hiid suffers from a
cold don't wait; give the little stom
ach. liver and bowels a gentle, thor
ough cleansing at once. When
cross, peevish, listless, pale, doesn't
sleep, eat or act naturally; if breath
is bad, stomach sour, give a tea
spoonful of "California Syrup of
Figs," and in a few hours all the
clogged-up, constipated waste, sour
bile and undigested food will gently
move out of the bowels, and you
have a well, playful child again.
If your child coughs, snuffles and
has caught cold or is feverish or has
a sore throat give a good dose of
"California Syrup of Figs," to evacu
ate the bowels no difference what
other treatment is given.
Sick children needn't be coaxed
to take this harmless "fruit laxa
tive." Millions of mothers keep it
handy because they know its action
on the stomach, liver and bowels is
prompt and sure. They also know
a little given today saves a sick
child tomorrow.
Ask your druggist for a bottle of
"California Syrup of Figs," which
contains directions for babies, chil-j
dren of all ages and for grown-ups
plainly on the bottle. Beware of
counterfeits sold here. Get the gen
uine, made by "California Fig Syrup

headache and that miserable feeling
from colds or congestion. And it acts at

Millions Could Be Saved Annually by
Cheaper Water Freight s y Engineers
Explain After Study of Statistics
The canalization of the Susque
hanna river looks so good from an
economical standpoint that private
capital in New York has had a sur
vey of the river with the thought
of asking the Pennsylvania Legisla
ture for permission to deepen the
river for navigation purposes,' Ma
jor William B. Gray, of the United
States Army, told a representative
delegation of Susquehanna Valley
citizens meeting at the Penn-Harris
Major Gray made the statement
in reply to a question as to whether
or not he thought the idea prac
tical. But the Mujor said he doubt
ed if the Legislature would give
such a charter and that it would be
much better to do the work through |
the Legislature or Congress, or
100,000.000 Tons of Coal
It was brought out at the meet
ing that with the Susquehanna riv
er made navigable it would be pos
sible to transport by boat from the
Pennsylvania mines 100,000,000 tons
of coal a year at a saving of about
II a ton on transportation charges.
About 70,000,000 tons could be de
livered from the mines directly into
boats and the remaining 30,000,000
tons by short hauls to the streams.
The entire cost of deepening the
river could be thus saved to the
people in one year. These figures
are the carefully prepared estimates
of state engineers who have made a
study of the river and its possibili
ties, and If anything are conserva
The meeting was addressed by
Major Gray. R. A. Zentmyer, chair
man of the State Water Supply Com
mission; Lyman H. Howe, of Wilkes-
Uarre; Edwin Charles, of Milton; 1
W. C. Forney, of Milton, and many ,
others. Mr. Zentmyer proved by
carefully worked-out tables that
there Is ample water in the river
even at the lowest stages to meet
transportation needs.
Major Gray outlined at length the
preliminary steps required and said
j that the cost of a survey would be
nearer a million dollars than the
1250,000 provided by Congress. He
had on display a big map covering
p quarter of one side of the big ball
room, showing the immense terri
tory touched by the proposed im
Permanent Basis
The committee was placed on a
permanent basis. Eli Hershey
was chosen as chairman with power
to select an executive committee
and a secretary. Congressman
Kreider sent a letter regretting his
inability to be present, due to the
press of Congressional business, in
which he said in part:
"If" you will allow me I might
! suggest, that so far as the survey of
: the Susquehanna is concerned, it
| may be advisable for this committee
I to take such action as will impress
I upon the War Department, the fact
j that the people of Pennsylvania and
| the business interests are intensely
I interested in this project with the
. hope that the provision of law au-
I thorizing the survey of the Susque
| hanna, will be carried out as
! promptly as possible, for it must
; be remembered thtt the bill au
i thorizing this survey also authorizes
the survey of a number of other
projects of a similar nature and we
do not want the War Department to
make the other surveys first and
i possibly exhaust the appropriation
before the item for the Susquehanna
is reached.
"We should also Impress upon the
War Department thht the federal
government, itself, has more than a
passing interest in this survey and
project. Inasmuch as we were suc
cessful In having the government
erect the warehouse of the aviation
section of the signal corps, and the
depots for the ordnance and quarter
master departments on the banks
of the Susquehanna river and
should we be so unfortunate as to
become involved in another war the
navigability of the Susquehanna
river would become a matter of vi
tal and strategic importance to the
government of the United States.
For it must be remembered, that
not only are these immense ware
houses located on Its banks, but
some of our largest establishments
manufacturing munitions of war are
also located here and, just north of
Harrisburg, we strike the tremend
ous and Inexhaustible coal fields of
Pennsylvania, all of which are mat
ters in which the government, itself
must of necessity, be concerned.
"I might state that the present
river and harbor bill
become a law in its present form.
The bill has passed the House and
Senate and the conference commit
tee made its report to the House,
which was approved and the Senate
will, in all probability, approve the
same .report. After which. It of
course only requires the signature
of the President.
"As soon as the bill Is signed,
probably before the end of this week,
1 shall make a personal call on and
direct the attention of the proper
authorities of the War Department
to this survey and urge that this be
one of the first surveys'authorized by
thlH bill, to receive attention."
Strong arguments were presented
by members of the Old Boatmen's
Association who were in attendance
at the meeting held yesterday by the
special committee of the Harrisburg
Rotary Club. Prominent among these
was Edwin Charles, of Mlddleburg,
.secretary of the association, and
probably the best known canal boat
man in the State. Mr. Charles, who
is the author of a number of articles
dealing with the old canal days, said
in part: .. „
"This is a great economic question.
In 1917 the State of Pennsylvania
mined over three hundred million
tons of coal. This is 50 per cent, of
the production in the entire United
States. Maryland, where only a small
percentage of the total production
was mined, the federal government
thought it proper to take over the
old Chesapeake and Ohio canal that
serves Washington City. Should they
not consider Pennsylvania relatively
more important and leid aid to tak
ing over the abandoned waterways of
Pennsylvania, considering the fact
that Pennsylvania supplies the great
manufacturing centers of Baltimore,
Philadelphia, New York, New Eng
land, Pittsburgh, Rochester and
other cities with power and the fact
that Pennsylvania supplied 60 per
cent, or the war material?
"When the Pennsylvania canp.l was
in operation coal was carried from
the mines at Nanticoke to Harris
burg at a cost of 45 cents a ton and
to New York for 85 cents a ton
against a charge of $1,50 to $3 a ton
by rail at present. If the waterways
were to carry one-third of the three
hundred millions of tons of coal
mined in Pennsylvania annuallv at a
minimum saving of $1 per ton to the
householder, should not the fuel

The room was at
a low temperature,
5 below zero. It felt like the Arctic region.
It was a large room, capable of storing big
quantities of product.
Mr. Hershey amazed the Ad man by his
next remark. Said he, "A few days ago we
had in this room 40,000 pounds of butter.
Now there are about 12,000 pounds left. We
ship a great deal of butter."
The Ad man surely was amazed. It seem
ed to him almost incredible that so much
butter was made in the Hershey Creamery
Company's plant.
Here was a new phase of the business. Not
exactly new, but a phase that now stood out
in a new light. /
Not able to contain himself, the Ad man
asked, in a very surprised manner, "How in
the world do you happen to make so much
butter? I thought you were in the ice
cream business."
"We certainly are in the ice cream busi
ness, and in it right," replied Mr. Hershey,
"or we wouldn't have this big plant; but I'll
tell you something that the public doesn't
know and would never give a
"Let's have it," persisted the Ad man.
"Our milk collecting points, where we re
ceive all the milk and cream "from the farms,
are maintained all the year round. We take
all the milk and cream our farms produce.
"Some seasons are not as big as others and
we get an over-supply of milk and cream.
You see, we have to take it all whether we
need it for ice cream or not. The supply is
often very much larger than is required for
ice cream.
"Naturally this extra supply must be used
in some way or there would be a great loss.
So we use it for making that rich golden but
ter that you saw in that churn upstairs."
"Yes, I understand," replied the Ad man,"
but you make so much HERSHEY'S SU
PERIOR ICE CREAM it would seem to me
that you wouldn't get enough cream for that,
let alone have any left to make butter."

"That brings in still another part of our
business," explained Mr. Hershey, "and I
will tell you about that, too, for it really is •
the side of the ice cream business upon
which we mainly depend." ""
