Price Holds Conference With
Adjutant General
Philadelphia, Aug. 1. Reeruit
ing for the new Pennsylvania Na
' tional Guard will be speeded up in
▼ the fall, said Major General Wil
liam G. Price, commander of the
Guard here after his conference
with Adjutant General Frank D.
Beary, Colonel David Davis, of
Scranton, chief-of-staff, and bri
gade commanders. The new Guard
will be known as the Twenty-Eighth
Division and will have the red key
, stone as an insignia.
"We will not incorporate the re
serve militia into the National
Guard," General Price said, "but
I members will be accepted if they
join as individuals. We are anxi
ous for reserve officers to join and
expect that the National Guards
men who were sworn into the Fed
eral service and went abroad witli
the Twenty-Eighth Division will re
enlist in the units which will be re- ;
instated as they were before the
Something Hits Watches
of Allison Hill Men
Something happened last night tj
Allison Ilill watches. Whether it
was the weather or magnetism in
the atmosphere is a question. Nine
T passengers on a Reservoir Park ear
this morning found their watches
from ten to fifteen minutes behind
time. These nine persons were all
late in getting to work.
Shortly after four men boarded |
the ear at Nineteenth and Market j
streets a whistle blew. "There is
the 6.30 whistle," said one man.
"You are wrong." said the conduc
tor, pulling out his watch. "It is
just ten minutes of 7."
Out came every watch in the car.
"You can't be right," said one pas
senger. "Oh, yes I am," spoke up
the conductor, and the motorman
corroborated his statement. "If you
*■' time is right, then I am slow," a
businessman remarked. Then came
a comparison of time by nine
watches. Every watch was behind
that of the conductor and motor
Expenditures by city departments

769.30, it was reported at the office,
of City Treasurer C. E. Weber to-day.!
Receipts were $924,004.08; leaving "a |
cash balance August 1, of $446,706.95, !
as compared with the balance of I
$484,472.17 July 1. The city High- I
way Department workmen were paid,
to-day, the total amount of the i
wages reaching more than $B,lOO. Ex
k tensive street repair work was done
during the last two weeks.
William It. Stinnen, 747 South j
Nineteenth street, was burned about j
the body and knocked unconscious '■
last evening when he touched a tele
phone wire carrying a high voltage
of electricity. The wire when it
broke came in contact with a high
power line. He was taken to the
Harrisburg Hospital for treatment
and later went home.

Wounded Soldiers Are Enter
tained by Ben Strouse at
Hcrshey Park
The picnic which The Globe Cloth
ing Store gave its employes at
Hershey, yesterday, was a tremen
dous success from every viewpoint,
and the twenty-five wounded sol
, riiers who were the guests of Ben
j Strouge went back to Carlisle after
having had the time of their lives.
| As soon as the crowd reached
| Hershey, where they were taken in
I big trucks, luncheon was served and
everybody entered into an eating
contest. Those who were able to
move after this got into the married
men—single men baseball game,
which ended with the married men
two runs to the good. The more
musically inclined got together an
improvised orchestra and had a
dance in the pavilion. '
In order that the Carlisle men
could get an early start homeward,
supper was served rather early. Later
the games and stunts were put on,
and included everything in the line
of funny stuff that could be thought
of; the cake-baking contest was also
decided then. Miss Mabel Givler
got the silk stockings offered as a
prize for the most delectable con
coction and those who had an oppor
tunity of getting outside of it say it
couldn't be equaled.
The picnic is tin annual affair and
this year's decidedly dwarfs any of
the previous parties.
The daily Bible Vacation School
of Market Square Presbyterian
Church, last night had its Exhibi
tion Night. The program was pre
sented in the church auditorium
and marked the closing of the sum
mer sessions.
Drawings and other hand work
were exhibited to show some of the
work done there in the past weeks
Five children in each class who had
missed the least number of days and
had done, their work best were
awarded certificates by the Presby
terian Board of Publication and
Sabbath School work.
K. Z. Wallower, chairman of the
committee on improvements for the
Grace Methodist Church, secured a
permit to-day for the extensive re
modeling work and alterations which
have been decided upon by the con
gregation. The cost of the work is
estimated at J 10,000, according to the
permit. F. L. Morrow, contractor
for J. F. Trout, took out a permit
to build a one-story brick house on
the north side of Third street, north
of Lewist street, at a cost of $3,500.
West Chester, Pa , Aug. I.—Two
kisses, obtained from Iter lips by

ti'ed yesterday by her attorney, Wil

State Health Department Is
Ready to Co-operate
With Harrisburg
j According to Charles A. Emerson,
I Jr., chief engineer of the Sanitary
Division of the State Health Depart
ment, the State is only waiting for
J the co-operation of the City Council
j before proceeding to exterminate the
| mosquito in this city.
I Mr. Emerson had one of his chief
I assistants from Philadelphia make
Ja thorough investigation of potential
| breeding places for mosquitoes
, throughout Harrisburg and this re
i port was submitted by Dr. J. M. J.
Itaunick, city health officer, to the
City Council for approval and ac
tion. The Council has so far failed
to make any provision to take care
of this work, however, and the State
is ready to assist in every way pos
sible as soon as some action is taken.
The chief places of mosquito
breeding in town are Wildwood
Park, Pleasantview, near the Arsenal
in Eighteenth street, and Italian
Park. The latter place especially
is very troublesome, as th'e outlet
to the lake is blocked by three cul
verts, every one of which is quite a
bit higher than the surface of the
lake itself, so that although they
were originally planned to drain the
swamp, now they serve only as a
dam. According to Mr. Emerson,
these culverts could be lowered at
a cost of slightly over $lOO, and as
the streets under which the are
built are as yet unpaved, there would
be no difficulty in the operation at
Hoffman's Woods is another part
of town which includes about half
an acre of very foul swamp. The
treatment in this case would be to
divert the route of the ash wagons
northward to the woods, and the
swamp could be filled up in no time
and the mosquito nuisance in that
quarter permanently removed.
In the main part of the city, how
ever, the trouble results from the
drain troughs, which are harboring
[swarms of the pests. Contrary to
common thought, the drains are not
completely flushed with each heavy
rain, but an eddy remains which is
entirely untouched by the rush of
water. Mr. Emerson's plan for these
places is to have two men, with a
light truck, go about the city every
ten days and thoroughly spray the
drains with a light oil which the
State uses in like cases. This could
be done at very slight expense to
the city, and would prove an effec
tive means of keeping down the mos
The State will co-operate in this
to the extent of furnishing an in
spector and assistant inspector for
the work, and are extremely eager
that it be carried on. The City Coun
cil is expected to take action on this
matter very shortly.

Big Picnic Howling Success,
Despite Few Scattering
| Seventy-six members of the Har
risburg Rotary Club and their fam
ilies attended the club picnic yes
terday afternoon at Camp Shikol
| limy, where the Harrisburg " i'"
boys are holding forth for two
weeks. The camp is located at Big
Pond, near Shippensburg, and the
club motored up in the afternoon
and spent the evening there. The
boys were the guests of the visitors
at supper, served in old-time fam
ily picnic style.
The outing was arranged by Shir
ley R. Watts, chairman, and a com
mittee, and despite a few rain
drops was voted a great success.
After supper the boys were put
through their paces by Arch Dins
more and "Doc" Miller, physical
director. A shower cut the canip
fire short, but the boys sang songs
and did stunts. "Doc" Miller show
ed the Rotarians, including John
Musser, Preston Crowell, Grant For
rer and others how he saw a ghost
the night before and what kind of
a ghost it was, and those who were
shown gathered themselves up from
the mud-spattered ground and voted
themselves as opposed to the Miller
. \ariety of ghosts. The same crowd
d;d a cakewalk and Arch Dinsmoro
spoke in favor of a permanent
camp site.

Rotarians included: v

Council to Act as Quickly as
All Data Is at
Proposed street changes to he
provided with the deeding of the
Italian Park site to the city as a
free gift, are being considered now
by City Engineer M. B. Cowden and
E. Clark Cowden, engineer for the
Planning Commission.
As soon as the cost of the street
changes is estimated together with
the expense which would be involved
for the treatment of the park and
providing a lake or pool, the en
gineers will submit a joint report
to the Planning Commission.
It is expected that by that time
the executors of the McKec-Ora
ham estate will have submitted to
the Planning Commission also a
written statement of their offer and
the requirements which they desire
the city to comply with in order to
receive the park tract as a gift.
Now Street Lines
These points were agreed upon at
a joint meeting of the executors and
the Planning Commission members,
together with the engineers and city
councilmen. It was decided at that
session that tho city should agree to
improve the park in three years and
provide the pool if possible, and lay
out Green, Third and Sixth streets,
along the lines originally designed
by the Planning Commission.
Members of City Council have said
they favor making Green street 120
feet wide from Schuylkill to the
northern city limits; and Sixth and
Third streets, 60 feet wide to the
northern city limits. It is under
stood they approve the lines of these
streets as changed by the engineers.
City Engineer Cowden said lie
is preparing now a plan of the
sti ects, which will be completed
soon. He explained that it may be
necessary to do some surveying be
fore the lines can be determined
definitely but this should not delay
the actual sale of the Hoffman's
Woods site to the school district.
City Councilmen said they will act
as soon as they receive an official
statement of the park and street
situation through the Planning Com
mission, as this plan of procedure
was approved at the joint meeting
recently. The councilmanic com
mittee will make its report at the
same time. The members include
Mayor Keister and Commissioner E.
Z. Gross.
