4teive proper medical treatment iuuue
jJiatelv after the accident, the mother
of the youth this morning brought a
tit t for lama;cs gainst Mrs. Albitz,
{demanding s>.ooo. The mother's claim
JJpr me 1 ai services and personal loss
es is for $3,000 whiie that of the boy
is for $5,000.
_ Young Krb was able to be out of
the house ou a rolter chair last week
ifor the first time siuce he wa- brought
Jfome following the accident, which oc
curred on July 3, last. According to
5J»e mother and her attorney the boy's
Hgj.ries were due directly to the
yrjiiks or a practical joker who thrust
n lighted "sparkler" among several
"sparklers" aud a handful of
•matches that young Krb was carrying
«tn H trousers p<> kt;t. Almost instantly
•pie supposedly "harmless'' novelties
Jart'ro ablaze and before the lad could
extract the intruiug mass or beat out
the flames his leg and side were fright-
Jully burned.
Sot until almost two weeks after the
accident was the mother advise 1 of
■it. -he savs, and in all that time she
■declares her boy did not receive prop
er mod -'.l attention. Then she brought
him to Harrisburg and called in a phy
sician. YOUUM Krb had been visiting
Albitz family on the Knterline
i#arm when the accident occurred.
J* The boy. aeeording to the family
jjhysician. lingered between life and i
•oeath for many weeks and it was de
cided finally that »kin grafting was
necessary if his life was to be saved.
Sfwo perations were performed, one ou
JBepteuibei 30. aud the other on No
<vember 20, in which more than a hun
dre i square inches of skin were taken
from the body of Steward QL Forney.
434 Harris street, and transferred to
sie burned surface. Forney volunteered
give the cuticle when he rea I in the
Star-Independent of Paul Erb's plight.
The wound healed but the cuticle
has remained 1 very stiff and to move
causes the boy great pain. Since the
accident on July 3 he had not moved
-off his cot until this week, when he was'
laken out on the rolling chair. The boy
has grown since his accident but the
Surued leg has not developed and it is
Relieved that the one leg will perma
nently be shorter than the other.

exception of the retreat from the San

The character of the fighting in
France and Belgium has not changed
materially. To-day's reports show that
severe engagements are in progress on
the western portion of the line but
aside from local successes the attempts
of each side is to dislodge the other

case for months past.

Italian troops are pushing steadily
into Austria, along the line running
north of the Gulf of Triest. Apparently
the Austnans have as yet offered no
serious resistance, although further
west there has been severe fighting. An

the occupation of the Austrian town of

will not remain inactive or despondent,
or indifferent. We shall see the most
active and persistent efforts to rebuild
and extend and to succeed in the inter
national race for supremacy that the

than ever before. From necessity will
spring thought and study and effort
that will enable the survivors to reach
greater heights of success than ever

the war. there will be a feeling almost

the adjustment of all future differences

It was said authoritatively that a

Kven though a few should make serious

Intimated That Governor Brumbaugh
Will Appoint Eithor Him or Form
er Governor Pennypaeker As Chair
man of Reorganized Body
The first formal business meeting of
the Public Service Commission as at
present constituted will bo held on
j Tuesday next, by which time it in ex
-1 pectod that Governor Brufnbuugh will
1 have auuounced the appointment of 1
j chairman of the body, as ho is author
ized to do under the law. The name
of William A. Mngoe, of Pittsburgh,
j is mentioned in connection with the
; chairmanship, but there is some prob
ability of the reappointment of Sam
i uel W. Pennypaeker, the last chairman
of the old commission.
Governor Brumb.tugh's announce
ment to the commission, in his talk
with it on Tuesday afternoon, that he
expects it to be a working body all the
time, and that it will be expected to
I sit continuously, has led to speculation
; a< to whether the commissioners will
take up their residences in Harriebuig,
, but thus fur but one of their number
j has signified Ins intention of so doing
I —John S. Rilling, of Brio.
A farewell banquet lias been tender
ed to him by the citizen of Erie, whore
Ihe has resided for many years, lie
■ was prominent as a member of the
1 Krie bar. The other members of the
I commission, it was thought, will not
j give up their present places of rosi
| donee but will come to H irrisburg reg
-1 ularly to attend the meetings at least
i for the present.
A long list of cases awaits action of
j the commission at its next week's
! mooting, among them the following:
The approval of the application of
i the Clark's Forrv Bridge Company for
j a charter of incorporation, in which
} Harrisburgers are interested.

Goes Into "Seclusion" While Studying
Measures Submitted by the Legisla
ture —Believed Most of the Appro
priations Will Stand
Action on bills now in the Gov
ernor's hands will not bo announced lie
fore next week, the Governor now being
very busily engaged ith them. These
include the workmen's compensation
j series and the full crew repealer. The
j workmen's bill will probably be ap
| proved, but the fate of the full crow
repealer is unknown as the Governor
lias not indicated in any way what he
proposes to do with it. The fact that
, he will have no hearings on appropria
tion bills will greatly facilitate the
! work of disposing of them.
On Wednesday next Governor Britm
! baugh, Attorney General Brown and
' Chairmen Woodward and Buc.kman, of
the House and Senate Appropriations
Committees, respectively, will take up
i all of the four hundred appropriation
bills now in the Governor's hands and
they will be disposed of rapidly.
•The appropriations for the session
carry between $66,000,000 and $67.-
1 000,000, and all of the bills were gone
! over so carefully in committee, with
j the Governor's knowledge, that it is
I thought there will be very few, if any,
items vetoed. The Governor was kept
informed 011 almost every appropriation
bill by Chairman Woodward and al
: ready knows almost exactly what each
one carries, so that it will ho a matter
of but a short time for him to dispose
of them. He has, however, requested
the presence of the two chairmen in
I the event that there should be any hill
1 carrying a vague provision, in which
case he would ask that it bo explained
Chairman Woodward was here to-day
| but left for Barnegat Bay to spend the
1 week-end. There ho will tabulate the
' appropriation figures. Governor Brum
j baugh is so taken up with other bills
■ that he is practically inaccessible, and
j will not come "out of seclusion" until
he has all of the bills off .his hands.
Confiscates Three Balloons Steelton Ju
nior# Planned to Release
Steelton *s chief of police was called
ion last night to prevent the Juniors
i from carrying out a deep-laid plot to
I float their colors above those of the
Seniors during the annual commence
ment exercises held in the Steelton
1 High School auditorium.
The colors of the Seniors wore sus-
I ponded near the top of the stage. A
! party of Juniors purchased three in
j Hated toy gas balloons, each about nine
j inches in diameter, which wore tied in
i a cluster. To this cluster the colors
! of the Juniors were attached, the whole
| package being covered with white tis
j sue paper to make it look like a bou
j quet of flowers.
| This package was given to a young
' man, not a Junior, to smuggle into the
; High School building, which was sue-
I cessfullv accomplished a short time aft
er the program started.
The Seniors got wind of the plot,
however, and Chief ofPolice Ijongnaker
j was instructed by Professor Charles S.
Davis to make a search for the bal
! loons. As a result the gas bags were
confiscated by lxmgnakor about one
j minute before the time it was planned
| to release them.

the improvement was mainly in stoeka
of minor importance, leading issues be
ing neglected. Hock Island made fur
ther recovery of a point and some of
the war specialties, coppers and motors,
rose small fractions, but these were
soon wiped out. Canadian Pacific was
again the weak feature of the interna
tional list, losing over a point, despite
its comparative firmness in l>ondon.
Among the more obscure industrials,
Harvester ■Corporation of New Jersey
declined over t points. The entire list
receded moderately soon nfber the open
I ransactions in the first hour barely
aggregated 60,000 shares and of this
total five of the leading speculative fa
vorites contributed about ,"»tt per cent,
'l-iocal traction shares were almost the
only issues to retain their recent rise,
most other stocks falling fractionally
under yesterday's close level. Cana
dian Pacific extended its decline to 1 1 a
points and I'nion Pacific lost a point.

to list interest in bettor-known special
