The start of the last week of the most vigor
ously fought campaigu for state officers that has
been waged for years iu Pennsylvania rinds both
Democrats aud Republics us claiming victory for
their candidates for United States Senator aud
Governor, each with a brave show of confidence,
and the "Washington party professing to be equally
confident of the election of their candidate for the
Senate. "Straw" votes are being taken aud pre
dictions as to the sizes of majorities or pluralities
are being freely made by persons professing to
possess powers of political prognostication.
Even before the primaries, early last spring, the
issues of the tight were beiug discussed and the
discussions have been kept up pretty consistently
ever since, so that now it is a safe assertion that
the voters of the state understand fully what each
party what each candidate for an important
office stands for. —better, perhaps, than in any cam
paign in the recent history of Pennsylvania. It is
logical to assume, therefore, that the voters for
ihe most part already are determined as to how
they will oast their ballots one week from to-mor
row and that nothing can alter the determination
of the majority barring the injection of some un
foreseen influence of sufficient force to cause a
great eleventh hour upheaval in sentiment.
Whether any of the parties has anything "up
its sleeve' to "spring" at the last moment which
• an have the effect of bringing about any material
change in the sentiment of the voters, the present
week will determine. This is the week in which
the candidates must bring out their hidden ammu
nition. if they have any remaining, but nothing
short of a big "explosion can change the course
of events as it is now being run.
I he invasion of Colonel Roosevelt, scheduled for
this week, presents the one possibility that can be
.oreseen at this date of a political "explosion"
that may have sufficient force to upset existing
sentiment of the electors. Evidently the Washing
ion party men who are freely predicting the elec
tion of Gifford Pinchot as United States Senator
are counting on the Loionel's voice and ability as
a vote-winner to carry Mr. Pinchot to victory, if
Mr. Pinchot is to succeed, as predicted by his sup
porters. the upheaval must come as a result of
Colonel Roosevelt's invasion of the state, and there
are many who believe that the Colonel, even in
Pennsylvania, where he is so popular, does not pos
sess the power to turn the tide of the sentiment
from the course in which it is now running.
With regard to the contest as between tht- lead
ing Republican and Democratic caudidates the un
biased observer must admit that no one to-day
•an accurately predict the result. All depends on
the independent voters.—and their number in these
days is far greater than ever before. With them
rests the balance of power and the independent
voter does not tell how he is going to cast his
ballot. It can be said with absolute assurance,
however, that the independents will not sit at home
and twirl their thumbs on election day. The un
usually aggressive campaigns that have been made
alike by the Republicans and Democrats are certain
to have the effect of getting the voters to the polls.
What they will do after they get there will not be
known until the ballots are counted on November 3.
The days of racing tire horses are numbered.
Motor vehicles, which have largely taken the places
of the animals for general transportation purpose,
are being adopted by tire departments. Gasoline j
is providing an excHlent substitute for animal en
ergy as the motive power for tire apparatus.
Harrisburg s recently acquired auto tire appa
ratus will soon participate in responses to alarms
and give the city its tirst exhibition of horseless
tire tighting. It will not be difficult for the imagi
nation to foresee the day when only autos will
respond to alarms, when horses will be left in the
hapiess of ice aud coal wagons, or will have disap
peared entirely from extensive service of any sort.
It is not altogether pleasant to think of tho
abandonment of horses by tire departments. The
gallant steeds, racing through the streets iu ap
parent detiame of all restraint of reins while the
tire bells are ringing and siuoke and sparks are
issuing from the engines seem to have become an
inseparable factor in the sources of excitement at
the sounding of an alarm of tire. Those who have
seldom seen a tire without the added feature of
galloping horses can hardly realize what the re
sponse to a tire alarm would be like if it lacked
the tire horses.
I tility gives no heed, however, to sentiment.
Dashing horses may add life to the scene of a tire,
aud increase the general sense of excitement, yet
they are not as efficient in actuality as arc inani
mate motors. The vim of the animals cannot carry
trucks to tires as fast as can gasoline; the legs of
the living beasts are not as speedy as are the pistons
of the humanly contrived mechanisms.
The Are horses are splendid when in action, and
much will be missed by future generations whose
only knowledge of the animals will be through pho
tographs. yet when the auto apparatus does awav
entirely with the horses greater speed iu respond
ing to alarms will be possible aud the tire depart
ments will approach their highest degree of effic
"The quicker the horses are put out of the busi
ness the better." is the statement made by Captain
•John Rumney of a Manayunk engine company. He
says it is disgusting to him to have to ride to a
tire behind a horse, and asserts that when he had
to go on the old timers recently because the auto
apparatus was disabled, he thought he would never
reach the fire. He says the machine can take the
big hills for which Manayunk is famous, in two or
three minutes, and that the flying horses of former
days are "not in it'' now.

In the Apple Bait of Adams County
Apples, apples cerywhfre, and bar
rels of eider to drink! If you waut to
see apple orchards, if you want to see j
applfs, if you want to see eider —and ;
drink it—if you want to see more apples ,
than you e\ei dreamed could be grown j
in Pennsylvania, or the entire Uuion,
for that matter, take a trip through
the apple belt in Adams county. Yes,
Adams county' You needn't turn up
your nose beeause Adams is one of the
smallest iu ai/.e aud population of the
counties of Pennsylvania, aud its chief
claim to fame rests in the fact that
the battle of Gettysburg was fought
within her borders. Adams county has
another claim to fame, it raises more
apples than any county of its size
anywhere. And. what is more, that
claim can be made good any day at
preseut and has been holding good for
several weeks.
Greatest Apple Year in History
This has been the greatest apple
growing year in the history of Adams
county. Frrm Beudersvilie aud Arendt
ville, and Starucr's Station and Big
lerville and any other of the numerou<y
villages that you run up against when
you journey through Adams county, you
get the same story —never so many ap
ples as this vear. Men who seven or
eight years ago set out apple orchards
are now sharing in he prolits with men
who a score of years ago planted ap
ple orchards and have been enjoying
the prolits thereof for a long time.
■Six-vearoli 1 orchards bear about a
bushei of apples to the tree and the
yield increases wi-th every year of i
growth, so you can easily figure it out
for yourself how the Adams county j
apple-grower can sit/ on the top rail I
of the fence when his apple trees are
over teu years old and calculate just
how many he i« going to have to the
tree —if the crop is up to the average.
I But this year tilt average doesn't enter
into it. The crop i- so far above the
average that all calculations are upset.

Apples on Historic Ground
For several weeks the apple-growers
whose orchards can be seen from the j
load along which the invading iiosis
iof Lee's arn.\ marched to Gettysburg
have been sending their apples to the
nearest railroad stations to be shipped
; to market, but. even with the thousands
and thousands of barrels that have been
marketed, it does not seem that there
has been any impression made on the
j supply. The apples in sight simply
make one sit up and gasp ami ask
J questions. As a master of fact, the ap
' pie crop is not all gathered. Through
' out the little valleys, on the hillsides,
in every directicn are apple orchards,
j the trees in which are. loaded down
with fruit, large, ripe, luscious fruit.
One wonders why the branches do not
break down from the very weight of
the fruit. In many orchards great
heaps of apples n#ve been taken from
the trees and piled up to be taken awav
to market as soon as they can be
reached by the teamsters. Apples
strew the ground under some of the
j trees a foot deep. The farm animals
; are fed on apples, and aloug the road
; we saw a family of half a dozen pigs
i feasting on apples, while a hungry
looking mule had sidled up to the
j fence, stretched Ins neck over the to:i
ba' aloug the road and was demurely
, pulling down apples from a limb and
munching the fruit.
.%"» Wagons of Apples in an Hour
On the road bat ween Arendtville
and Biglerville in less than an hour,
iby the watch, thirty-five four-horse
teams were seen, each hauling a highly
piled wagon of oarrels filled with ap
! p'.es consigned to the cities. Men
i lrove by in open wagons tiia: were
tilled with the e'aoi est-looking fruit,
and yet there seemed to be as many
apples remaining on the tree* as were
being carried away. In one town—
in the very heart of the town—was a
large apple orchard, the limbs bent si
most to the grouijl with their load of
j fruit. Where, oh. where was the small
! toy of that town that he had not
: despoiled that orchard so easily rav
ished of its treasures! Easily an
swered —his folks had an orchard of
i their own and looting a strange orch
! ard was overwork.

Crowds at the Cider Mills
All aloug the road were signs dis
played from the blacksmith and other
shops to the effect that cider would be
made on certain days in the week and
people could briug their apples and
; have them ground into cider. The ei
j dcr mill was see in a hundred in -
1 stances doing business surrounded by
| people, and a tin dipper hung conveni
ently close to the cider press, so that
he who cared to might driuk freely and
without price. No less chan four "suit
factories" were passed in full opera
tion. A "snit factory" is another
name for the place where they prepare
j evaporated apples. No longer is the
j fruit taken to cities to be evaporated,
j The fruit-grower has learned a new
trick and lie now moves the evaporator
! to his nearest town and, with other
i fruit-growers forms a combine, pools
i the fruit and does the evaporating,
j Every tojrn has its fruit growers' as
< sociation, and when the members are
i not looking after the fruit when it be
gins to ripen they are holding meetings
and discussing the best methods of
j orchard treatment, the probable crop
and whether the market will be a good
j one. This year prices range from 25
I cents a bushel "at the tree" to 60 and
jTO cents delivered at the station. In
some cases the choicest apples have
been sold 1 for $1 a bushel, or $3 a
! barrel, but this is choice fruit.

Chalmers -Su-48" At An Unusually
Low Price In Line With Com
pany's Well-Known Policy
Robert Morton, of the Keystone
Motor Car Company, 10-23-1025* Mar
ket street, Harrisburg, in speakiu'g of
ilie thalmer's oars says:
"The Chalmers 'six 4S' is first of all
a quality ear. That it is a quality car
at an unusually low price is simplv in
line with the well-known Chalmers
policy of producing, first, high grade
motor ears: and second, pricing them
as low as efficient manufacturing, quau
titv production, and a fair profit make
The light 'sx' is not an experi
mental car, rushed upou the market to
til! a newly arisen demand. Two vears
ago the Chalmers Motor Company
recognized a growing demand for a
car of this type—a car light in weight,
yet generously with all of the
qualities that make a *six* superior to
a 'four, and yet as economical to
maintain as any 'four' of equal power,
stylish in desigu and luxurious in ap
pointment, yet at a low price.
"Xearly two years ago the Chalmers
engineers began work on the model 26.
During thi* time little 'sixes' and low
priced 'sixes' have appeared on the
market. But the Chalmers engineers
were not stampeded. We knew the per
manence of the demand for the right
kind of light 'six.' We knew the buv
ing public want a well-known quality
car sold at a quantity price.
"We have designed and built the
•Six 48' painstakingly—as all Chal
mers cars are built—knowing that you
would prefer to wait for a car built
up to the Chalmers standard of quality,
rather than experimenting with any
of the cheaper and less favorably
known 'Sixes.' "

Thoso In European Warfare Find It
Contains Much Nutriment
Quite recently a gentleman in Europe
observing the passage of some trooj>s
through a village, noticed the women
in their enthusiasm, offering little gifts
to the soldiers, and, making some in
quiries, ascertained that the soldiers
almost invariably asked for chocolate
or cigarettes. Lately European govern
ments have made large purchases of
chocolate, finding that it is the favorite
emergency ration on account of its
small bulk and the large amount of
nutriment it contains.
For many years in this country
Walter Baker & Company's chocolate
has been recognized as an exceedingly
valuable article of food; chocolate con

degree than any of the cars that pre
tend to compete in the same price class.

ness, easy-riding, holding the road,
getting you "there and back".

Six" a car of cars for touring. In it
you can ride all day—and drive all
day, too —without fatigue. Your
nerves are not frayed by vibration:
your body is not wearied by jolts and
j And this same "readability" is
equally desirable for the man who
| doesn't care to tour extensively—but
| wants a car of comfort and satisfaction
for general use.

try the Chalmers"Light Six"- —the "six"
manufactured complete in the
Chalmers plant—and learn (or yourself
its in-built "readability".
