George A. Gorgas. HIS NERVE BAFFLES POLICE Victim, Shot Through Lung. Refuses to Divulge Name of Assailant Philadelphia, .lan. 13.—The ]>olice are baffled to ascertain the identity of the man who on Monday night shot and seriously wounded Robert Gunuis, proprietor of a poolroom at 128 South Ninth street. Believed to be dying, Guunis lies in the Hahnemann Hospital, steadilv refusing to divulge the name of his assailant, other than to announce that he is "close to the police depart ment." The man was fount by police men at Twelfth and .Market streets at 4.30 yesterday morning in a condition of collapse and taken to tho hoppital. The wounded man's nerve is remark able. When told that the shot, which had penetrated his left lung, might prove fatal, his only answer was a de fiant. shake of the head and the re mark: "Never mind who did it. I'll fix this matter up later myself. This is a private affair and I'm game to see it through." The only evidence the police have to work on is the statement of the clerk of a hotel near Ononis' poolroom, who said he had seen Gunnis with eight friends in a cab at 2 o'clock yesterlav morning. In an effort to get the man to talk, the police brought to tie hos pital three of his friends, but all at tempts to question him failed.

The Mill Grinds the Coffee And then— < offee begins Its Grind with the human system, and usually turns out nervousness, sleeplessness, headache, heart flutter or some of many other aches and pains. It's caffeine in the coffee that does it—a poison ous drug, cumulative in its effects, and too power ful for most systems to thoroughly eliminate. Perhaps coffee hasn't finished with you, but wouldn't it be wise to quit it before results are serious, and instead use POSTUM —the delicious food-drink, made from prime wheat and a wee bit of whole some molasses. It tastes much like high-grade .Java, yet is absolutely drug free—no caffeine—not a harmful thing in it. Postum comes in two forms: Regular p oßtum— must be boiled—lsc and packages; Instant Postum —soluble, made in the cup with hot water— instantly—3oc and 50c tins. The eost per cup is about the same for both kinds —sold.by Grocers everywhere. With the return to better health from the cliauge, you'll know of a surety "There's a Reason" for POSTUM THE COST OF A FARMER'S LIVING IN PENNSYLVANIA Average Figured by U. a Department of Agriculture at $157.44, Which ! Is $ 18.36 Less Than Results Ob tained in Other States Washington, D. C., Jan. 13. —A sur i \ ev of forty-three farms in a seetion of ' Pennsylvania where general farming is i practiced has recently 'been completed j bv the United States Department of Agriculture, in order to ascertain how ! much the average farm contributed to the family's living in the form of prod ucts grown and consumed directly on She farm. There are two ways of ob- I raining the necessities of life —raising ; them one's self, and raising something else to sell for money to buy them with. I Successful farming, say the exports, de pends upon the proper combination of she two methods. The investigators found that in the area studied in Pennsylvania the cost of board and lodging on the farm for ! each individual was on an average I $157 a yeai. 'Phis sum included food, J fuel, oil, house rent and house labor, ; the items being as follows: Food. *75.40; fuel, SS.S3: oil, $1.21; house rent, s3l; house labor, $11; total. $157.44. Compared with the figures obtained by similar surveys made in the course of the investigation of areas in New York. Vermont, Ohio, Wisconsin, Kansas, lowa, North Carolina, Georgia laud Texas, this is somewhat low, the j general average for all the areas studied '•being $176. This means that the farm family in t'he Pennsylvania area did not live so well, did not have so good a share ott the necessities as those elsewhere. One explanation, ap i parent at once, is the fact that in | Pennsylvania an average of 5.2 persons lived on farms averaging only 7 i acres eadh. whereas the average acreage for i all the areas was 122 and the number I of persons to a family only 4.t>. It is significant, however, that the annual consumption of food per person in Pennsylvania was, with the excep tion of Vermont, the lowest of all the j areas Studied, and that at the same time the percentage of the food sup i plied directly by the farm was also | next to the lowest. The Pennsylvania farm supplied the family with only j 51.4 per cent, otf its food while the 1 general average of all the areas was 63 | per cent, and in Nortih Carolina it rose to 82.3 per cent. As a result, al ' though the North Carolina family spent i in cash only $71.2S for food it actually | had more to eat —$401.93 —than the | average Pennsylvania family which j consumed a total of $392.01, and ! spent $201.69 in cash. The year's food j for each person in the North Carolina family was worth $59.3 2; in Penusvl ) vania, only $75.-to. Although the Southern climate, HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, WEDNESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 13, 1015. j DON'T TAKE CALtiMSL Instead of dangerous, salivating Cal omel to liven your liver when bilious, headachy or constipated get a 10-cent box of Cascarets. They start the liver and bowels and straighten you up bet ter tlimi nasd>- Calomel, without griping or inukiug vou sick.—Adv. whicth affords a long-growing season, is partly accountable for this difference, the chief explanation lies in the fact that the North Carolina farms were re mote from markets, that buying and selling alike were difficult, and that in consequence the farmers were compelled to raise their own supplies. As a re sult they had a comparative abundance of food to give thoir families. In Penn sylvania to a much greater extent the farmers sold what they had and bought w"lint they needed. But to a great ex tent, also, they bought solely what wa indispensable, and with them the result was that theiT families lived compara tively hard. Fruits and vegetables are among the things that the farm family be lieves can be dispensed with. Unless they are grown on the farm they are gone without. In Pennsylvania, there fore, vegetables formed, in money value only ten per cent, of the family's diet, while in North Carolina they were 15.3 per cent. and in Georgia 17.2. The Pennsylvania families made up for the deficiency by the use of groceries, which formed 27.1 pc. «ent. of their food suppiv and 97.S per cent, of which were bought. They also bought an un usual amount of meat, more in fact than any other area, and 40.2 per cent, of the entire quantity consumed. In North Oaroli ua this percentage was only 6.3. On the other hand of those animal products with which the fsrm might have furnished them—-poultry, milk and eggs—each person had very little —less poultry for example than in any other State except Vermont, less milk than anywhere save Georgia and Texas, both of which States had as a substi tute great quantities of buttermilk. Of eggs the average person in the Penn sylvania area had 18 dozen a year, in lowa he had 5S dozen. lif we turn from food to other fac tors in the cost of living it is even more evident tihat the average family is supported, not so much by the cash from money crops, as by what the farm yields in other ways. In the Pennsylvania nrea, with an average cost of maintenance for each person of $157 and 5.2 iversons to n farm, in one way or another a revenue of approxi mately $Bl6 had to be obtained to meet expenses. Only a small part of this took the form of cash. Of the labor, for ex ample, only about one per cent, was paid for, the rest being performed by members of the family. Had they done this work for somebody else, however, tihoy would have been "paid for it, and if it had 'been performed by somebody else they would have had to pay. In other words, this labor has a cash value, and since it adds to the comfort of the family, must be included in the revenue from the farm. The charge for rent must 'be con sidered in much the same way. The value of the farm house is usually in cluded in the value o>f tOie land," and the whole regarded as tlie capital which the farmer has invested in his 'business. If this is done, 'however, it is only fair to credit the farm with having fur nished its oc.-upants with shelter, which, as every city worker knows, has a high cash value. On the Pennsylvania farms included in the investigation, the aver age annual value of this sheiter—in other words, the house rent—was es timated at $163 a year, a figure which included interest, depreciation and re pairs. 145.90 worth of fuel was burned j each year. 61 per cent, of which was bought. This is most unusual, for the average percentage is 35.9: in Georgia no fuel at all was bought and in Ver mont only 4.5 per cent, of a total con sumption much greater than the Penn sylvania average. The average Venno-1 family tfp«nt in money no more than $3.1 S for fuel, the average Pennsyl vania family, S2S. This was practically all for coal, for of the sl9 worth of wood which wa* burned almost all came from the farm. This lends point to the contention that the average farmer does not appreciate the real value of his woodlot. Not only does it furnish hini directly in this way with what is t'he equivalent of a considerable sum, tout, properly cared for, can be made to return a cash revenue which is not to be despised. This, _ however, is merely a minor illustration of the general truth, reveal ed a now by this investigation, that the cast crop which the average farmer considers as his source of income is not always the chief support of his family. Increasing home production is an effective way of diminishing casfe outlay, and in many instances mav serve the farmer's purpose better than an attempt to increase cash receipts to meet increased 1 expenses.

Philadelphia, Jan. 13.—Republican leaders are taking every opportunity those days to assure Governor-elect Brumbaugh that they will back every thing he stands for in the shape of leg islation. This was illustrated yester day in a statement made by James P. Woodward, of Allegheny, who probably will be chairman of the important Ap propriations Committee of the House. After a long interview with Dr. Brum baugh, he emphatically said that the party should not only redeem its plat form pledge®, but should also help Dr. Brumbaugh carry out the pleliges he made in his personal platform. " Evidently the Governor-elect has been studying hard to make himself familiar with his new job," Mr. Wood ward said. "He shewed a knowledge of affairs astonishing in a man who has not spent some time on the inside of affairs in Harrisburg." In reply to a question as to , the course of the Republican majority in the coming session of tho Legislature, Mr. Woodward said: "Of course the party should! and will keep every one of its platform pledges. I will gc further and say that 1 believe we should also stand back of Dr. Brum baugh and help him in redeeming the personal promises hie made. The future of the party depends upon it." Woodward is regarded as a Penrose man and one of the most influential members of the lower House. It is be lieved that he personally pledged his support to the Governor-elect yester day. There were others who called upon Dr. Brumbaugh who were also members of the Legislature, all coming to tell him they would back him. At present there is apparently not a cloud upon th>e sky of Republican unity. Dr. Brumbaugh saiii yesterday that lie was still working on his inaugural mes sage. In spite of this his office was besieged with people asking favors. According to all who saw him, the Gov crnor-eloct told them they would have to await until he hail l cleared up the work on hand before ta-lking appoint ments. The leaders are not worried, however. They declare Brumbaugh has not given them any assurances as to his appointments, but that they are confi dent he will name flrst-cla.su organiza tion men to all the big places. State Senator McMichol said yester day that the committee authorized by the Legislature to confer with the new Governor on legislative affairs would not meet him until after his inaugura tion. This committee ha* not yet been named, but it is certain that Senator MeNichol will be chairman, as he was father oif the resolution authorizing it» The apparent pur[*>so of this committee is to stand sponsor in the Legislature for the bills the new Governor may want passed. j TO REMOVIE DANDRUFF* j Get a 25-cent bottle of Danderine at any drug store, pour a little into your liHnd and rub well into the scalp with the finger tips.
