"It'll never happen to me again." said Matthias at the hospital where he is recovering from what is consider- ed quite a serious operation. Whether he is going to anchor them on retir- ing or is resolved to remove "em is a question. But it is reasonably cer- tain that the scheme the victim has devised will be effective, all things considered. Then He Awoke! Matthias, who is said to be a fann- er near Mt. Airy, awoke on Sunday morning to the awful realization that he had swallowed his teeth. He was past that stage where one calls for assistance. "What he did was to cough and gasp for breath.

WAR TALK PUSHES WHEAT TO S2.17 Advance Of Three Cents The Bushel Reported On Lo- cal Market The passing of the war resolution by an unparalleled majority in the Senate had an uplifting effect on the price of wheat in the local market. It traveled upward three cents, making today's quotations per bushel- Some dealers re- ferred to this high price as nearly a famine basis. Excitement over -war measures about to be formally decided at "Wash- ington was at a high pitch when the wheat market opened and it was scarcely an. instant before prices be- gan to move upward. Pessimistic crop reports, including an estimate that the condition of winter wheat had dropped- below normal, added to the fever to buy.
