"Would Be Detrimental Rather Than Beneficial, Proprietor
of East End Farms Tells Members of Harris
burg Rotary Club
"I believe the idea of a wholesale
market in Harrisburg will be detri
mental rather than beneficial to the
interests of the consumer, Robert J.
Walton, proprietor of the East End
Farms, near Hummelstown, told
members of the Rotary Club and
their families who were his guests
at a cornroast last evening.
"In the first place," Mr. Walton
continued, "the farmer has not the
time to attend both wholesale and
retail markets, which would mean
that he "would come to markets Tues
day and Fridays, sell to city re
tailers who would add their profit
and take the goods to market the
next day. As the arrangement now
is, we bring vegetables, taken from
the ground the day before, to market
and the consumer deals for the most
part direotly with the farmer and
gets fresh vegetables and fruits."
"A great deal has been written
recently," he continued, "about the
great profits the farmers are mak
ing. I do not notice that many
farmers . are getting very rich. If
the business is so. good why is it
that the number of farmers is not
greatly Increased by people from the
city? You do not try to regulate
the prices the merchants charge you
for dresses or suits of clothing, yet
all,manner of attempts are made to

"Severe pains in the back and

a half bottle of Tar.-lac I could feel
the beneficial effects, while to-day

Mr. Walton told the Rotarians
that he expects his farms, which
are among the largest in Pennsyl
vania, will produce this year about
15,000 baskets of peaches, 5,000
bushels of apples, 5,600 bushels of
potatoes, 12,000 dozen ears of sweet
corn, 100,000 heads of cabbage and
150,000 stalks of celery. Most of
this is sold in the Harrisburg mar
kets. A young army of employes
is at work constantly.
"Tho need of the hour is encour
agement to the farmer," Mr. Walton
said. He cited the instance of
Wilkes-Barre, where the Chamber
of Commerce ran special motor
trucks equipped to carry passengers
into the country districts to take
mei. to and from work on the farms,
thus saving a labor shortage and
greatly increasing the crops of fine
vegetables thereabout.
Mr. Walton entertained the Ro
tarians in fine style, the first feature
of the day being- an inspection 'trip
of the big farms by automobile, the
journey requiring about one hour.
Then the guests looked over the
sheds where the fruit and vegetables
are prepared for market and loaded
on the trucks that bring them to
this city. The supper was served
on the lawn, corn on the ear, cold
boiled country ham, potato salad,
poaches, pears, apples- and grapes
being on the menu.
After supper the first fall meeting
of the Rotary Club was held on the
porch of the Walton home, with G.
! M. Steinmetz, president in the chair,
and John F. O'Neill, acting as secre
tary in the absence of W. M. Robison
who is attending the Knights Temp
lar convention in Philadelphia. A

i rangements for the attendance of

of all the Rotary Clubs of the fifth

Much Interest Being Shown by
Delegates in Election
of Officers
Popular Philadelphia Candidate For
Grand Master
Election of ofllcers was put ahead
to-day on the convention calendar
of the Grand United Order of Odd
Fellows. Delegates wanted more
time to discuss reports. It was also
feared that after the parade a num
ber of delegates might want to get
away, and some of the discussions
were sidetracked and election of offi
cers called for.
The light for grand master will in
all probability be between Philadel
i phia candidates. Robert E. Lee has
opposing him Dr. J. W. Sutton and
John D, Morris. These candidates
all stand high in the order and the
competition while spirited was
friendly. Delegates were ready to
make war on any attempt at fac
tional lights, the majority favoring
harmony. It was the belief that Lee
was a favorite. However, Dr. Sut
ton had an enthusiastic following.
Local ( and.date
Dr. Charles H. Crampton of this
city, expected to have some opposi
tion in the race for district deputy
grand master. It was said there
would not likely be any competition
for the other offices. John
Fields of Steelton, had no opposition
for the office of State secretary. He
has held this important office for
some time and has a host of friends
who recognize his efficiency and ac
tivity in the order. Delegates were
not certain whether it would Le pos
sible to complete the election before
the parade. It is also probable that
a session will be held to-morrow
Reports took up a big part of the
sessions to-day of both the Odd Fel
lows and Household of Ruth. A
joint memorial service was held at
the Wesley Union A. M. E. Zion
Church, and was followed by the
business sessions.
Reports presented and discussed
were on insurance, Household of
Ruth, auditing and other branches
of the order. The latter is in a
nourishing condition throughout the
State, the increase In membership
being large.
After Next Convention
There is likely to be a spirited
contest for the convention next year.
Lancaster is making a strong bid
and offers big inducements for the
meeting in 1920. Delegates from
Connellsville and Monesscn are also
showing activity. It is said the con
vention belongs in the western part
of the State next year.' Pittsburgh is
backing the Connellsville delegates.
The parade this afternoon was
the big feature of the day. It
brought to Harrisburg large dele
gations fro'm Philadelphia, Lancas
ter, York, Heading, Norristown, Car
lisle, Chambersburg, Middletown
Lebanon and Chester. The chief
marshal was Andrew C. Gray, cus
todian at the Executive Department.
His chief of staff was James E
Taylor. Major W. H. Coslow of
Harrisburg was in command of the
uniformed rank. There were bands
and drum corps in line of proces
sion which formed in Briggs street,
right resting in Cowden, and moved

Famous For Its Marvelous Motor
The Year 's Most
Pleasing New Sedan
* | TIE season offers no other sedan so pleasing in the beauty of its
X lines and its furnishings, as the new series Chandler Sedan. And
there is none that may be compared with it at anything like its price.
The new Chandler Sedan is the highest expression of years of
development in the creation of closed bodies, it is beautiful to look
at, and most comfortable to ride in. It has style and refinement that
must appeal to those who care for the finer things.
This car seats sevenpersons most comfortably or five when auxiliary
chairs are not in use. The front seat is solid, not divided as in previous
models, and the window posts are a permanent part of the body, not
removable. The windows, however, may be lowered away or adjusted
to suit the weather and the wish. The entire interior is upholstered
in finest quality silk-plush of pleasing pattern for cushions and plain
tone for head lining. Interior fittings are in dull silver finish.
Despite the largest production in the history of the Chandler
company, the demand for the new series sedan will quickly con
sume the production for weeks to come. Your early order will
be a safeguard against disappointment.
