LEHIGH COUNTY MAN RECEIV
ING ENCOURAGEMENT FROM
In addition to a state senator and gov

are callod upon to elect a judge of the
Superior Court. This court stands be

of Pennsylvania; and was created in order
to bear some of the enormous burden
that was falling on the shoulders of the
members of the Supreme Court.
.ludge Frank M. Trexler of Lehigh
County, appointed to fill the unexpired
term of Gen. James A. Beaver, is a candi

candidates in the spring primary, and al

What is the Non-partisan Ballot?
Voters by this time are getting accus

Pennsylvania in electing judges and the
government of third class cities. On this
ballot uo party is given, the candidates
being arranged alphabetically on the bal
lot. In the primarv election the voter is
given the party ballot he calls for and a
non-partisan ballot. He must vote both
to register his choice. In the fall election
the non-partisan ballot is printed on the
regular ballot. The voter must mark his
choice in the non-partisan column as well
as the rest of the ballot. Voting a straight
party ticket does not vote for a judgeship
candidate. For instance, to vote for Frank
M. Trexler of Lehigh County for the Supe

come to the I'nited states Department
of Agriculture regarding the treatment

following suggestions regarding some
Hardv perennials that arc expected
| to live through the winter, should be
I covered w ; tti a good coating of manure
ior other litter to a depth of three or

calities will hold the frost in the

manure will keep the plant from freer,

Vs soon as the tops of cannas. dah

plants are killed by the frost, the roots

cellar, where the temperature will re

How to Protect Pansies

Carrying Geraniums Over Winter
The ordinary method of carrvin;
geraniums oi er the winter as used b'
tlorists is as follows;
A few vigorous voting plants are ta
ken iuto conservatory or greenhousi
and cuttings are taken from these dur
L,g the winter from which a new sup
• p'n- of plants is growu for spring use
Tiie cuttings for the spring supph
shouli not be made later than January
if good stocky plants are desired foi
the next summer's use.
The ordinary householder who de
sires to keep his or her plants through
the winter is not usually the posse»soi
of a conservatory where he can follow
the method outlined above. The 10l
lowing suggestions may help him tc
keep a part of his geraniums, at least
throughout the winter season. Before
the frost has killed the plants, dig up
the geraniums and place them iu a -00 l
damp cellar. This cellar should be
cooler than that in which bulbs art
kept, ranging in temperature from 4 0
degrees to 50 degrees t in other words,
such a cellar as is suitable for storing
The plants may be placed in deep
boxes, standing up and packed close to
gether with a little dry soil about the
roots. Geraniums are also sometimes
hung up by the roots on the wall or
irom the joists. In spring, the tops of
these plants should be cut off within
two or three inches of the ground and
the roots again planted. A loss of half
the plants is to be anticipated in fol
lowing this procedure.

ADDITION TO HOSPITAL!
Board of Managers Ask State for Mon
ey for New Operating Room—Many
Other Changes at Institution Con
Litenor improvements and additional,
equipment are planned by the board of
managers of the Hnrrisburg hospital
for that institution to tlie extent of
$9,;>00. application for that amount
having been made to the State Board
of I haritie' in addition to a request
for $.<0,0000 for maintenance, to cover j
a period of two vears.
Charles A. Lindblad, Superintendent:
of the hcs; tal, yesterday made public
the contemplated improvements for
which ;he additional appropriation has
been asked, lie said:
"Twenty live hundred dollars of it
will be used m tiling lavatories and dis
fens;irics. to make them sanitary, doinj
sway with the i d woolen tloors and
wainscoting; $2,500 wilt be used in j
i i»n a new operating room. The!
; eseut operating room of this hospital
is as good as any in the State, but it j
is inadequate for our needs, as all op
orations must ye done in fhe same room.'
The new room will be tiled, equipped !
with all necessary instruments and fur-I
nishiugs and be thoroughly up to date. I
"' Another $2.,>00 will be used in in '
statlliug new laundry machinery. The j
present machinery has been in use
twelve years and in that time rhe hos j
I ital has almost doubled in size and ,
the uiachiuery is inadequate: $2,000.!
making up the amount, will be used in ;
making the building tirproof by adding j
tire doors . n recommendations of in
spectors or the state Department of'
Labor and industry.
•• \\ t are asking for additional main I
tenaiue money this time, the same j
amount we asked for two vears ago. I
but which was pared down by the Leg- i
isiature and then by the Governor until j
we go; $40,000. If it had not been!
for liberal donations during the two I
years the hospital would show a deficit j
of almost 15.000 a year, and I think 1
we are j.istitiesl in asking tor that
nmout add tional each year, making our
request $50,000 to cover two years.
We are doing more charity work than
formerly and the high cost of living
has added to the expense of running!
