Hereand There News and Comment by THE EDITOR Wide interest was displayed throughout the county in the offi- cial primary election figures pub- lished exclusively Wednesday in The Gettysburg Times, showing the vote for all candidates for contested offices in both Old Parties. The tabulation revealed some interesting sidelights on the pri- maries. Although he didn't win the nomination, Qounty Commissioner Last of "Old Glory" C7A. Hershey, seeking renomina- tion from the Democrats, dis- proved conclusively the old say- ing that "a man is without honor in his home community." Mr. Hershey carried his home township of Franklin, receiving 108 votes, which was more than twice as many as the next man of the 11 candidates got in the same township. Fellow townsmen of M. A. Gar- vin, veteran railroader, gave him a fine complimentary vote as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for associate judge. The first ward of Gettysburg gave him 166 votes, the second ward, 124 and the third ward, 102. George W. Eeichle, of Gettys- burg, carried 32 districts of the county and tied for high in two others, in a field of four candi- dates for the Democratic nomina- tion for county treasurer. Of the 51 voting districts, he lost only seven. He received the largest plurality of the candidates for the various offices in the Democratic primary, with a lead of 1086 over his nearest rival. McSherrystown second ward turned out the heaviest Demo- cratic vote of all the precincts in the county, with 287 votes cast there. Conewago township was a close second with 284 votes cast. In striking comparison, Conewago turned out only 22 Republican voters. Gettysburg first ward cast the largest number of Re- publican votes. On the Republican side, Charles B. Tate received a fine compli- mentary vote for sheriff from his fellow citizens of Gettysburg. William M. Dcatrick, of Bigler- ville R. D. 4, received the largest vote given any candidate for a contested office in the Republican primary, with 1966 for director of the poor. John Van Dyke, who also received the nomination for director of the poor from the Re- publicans, polled the second high- est vote for a contested office, with 1557, although Mr. Ander- son, who lost out in this contest, l was only 57 votes behind him. Many other things of interest can be gleaned from these official primary figures by careful study N on the part of the political stu- dent.

In Custody. When Abraham Lincoln called for volunteers at the be- ginning of the Civil War, Jonathan and Henry Roten left their father's rooftree in West Virginia to enlist. Jonathan joined the hosts of Blue, Henry the hosts of Gray. From that day, sixty-six years ago, they did not see each other until re- cently, when Henry traveled miles from his home, Fort Worth, Texas, to visit his brother and-jone-time enemy, at-Huntmg- ton, West Virginia. Some time ago Henry heard of the death of his sister, Mrs. Mary Baldwin, in Scott county, Virginia, and determined to learn, if possible, what had become of (Continued on Second Page.) Accused of obstructing legal proc- ess, seven farmers and one woman were arrested this morning in Hope- well townsh'p, York county, by forty state troopers including Sergeant Joseph Merrifield and Trooper Alfred Verbecken, of the local substation. Captain Paul B. Stout, commander of Troop E, Harripburg, was in charge of the officers. The arrests are the outcome of the efforts of agents of the state bureau of animal industry to take a cow from the farm of Augustus Diehl, Hopewell township. Mr. and Mrs. Diehl yesterday prex'ented the agents and two state police from taking the cow, it is said. This morning Captain Stout and his troopers went to the Diehl farm and found the animal missing. The cow is said to have been tested several weeks ago and found to be tuber- cular.

C, If turkeys elsewhere in the L'nited States are as scarce as they are in Adams county there will be few to srare the Tiianks- givinjf Day table at any price. That is the prediction of poul- try in Adams county, par- ticularly those who specialise in turkey culture. "Black sometimes known the "appendicitis ot' lias caused the deaths of hundreds of young fowls, ac- cording to leading growers. This disease, an internal disorder, is incurable, tlic poultrj men declare, and does not make its appearance until the biids, are six weeks old. Adams county usually supplier a large number of turkeys for nearby city markets in Novem- ber, but poultrymen say they will scarcely have enough birds to meet the demand of the local trade. One furkey fancier, Harry VanDjke, Ooldcnville. began his season with 133 fowls. "Black He.id" and wet weather have caused the death of one hundred of his "crop." Another poultry- man M ho began ith more than 200 birds has less than half of them lell. Many persons who hatched smaller broods of turkeys are reported to have lost all ot them. Dealers from city poultry con- cerns usually come into Adams county about November 1 to look the (locks and to deal with the farmers foi the sale ot their birds for the Thanksgiving trade. Until then no price for turkeys has been sel, but one farmer said, if turkeys are as scarce elsewhere as they are in Adams county, the price will be almost prohibitive. C. H. Stinson, Emmitsburg, Wednes-i day. The child is believed to have lowed the seed about two months ago, although the parents themselves ara unable to say just when it occurred.- The child apparently suffered no ill effects until recently when she was noticed to be breathing with difi ficulty and was not in normal health. The parents brought their daugh- ter to the Warner hospital for an examination and X-ray. Although the X-ray pictures failed to show the foreign body in the child's bronchial! tube because X-rays pass through vegetable organisms, physicians at the local institution, basing their diag- nosis on a' previous case of a similar nature, agreed that there was an ob-i ?truction near the right lung. j The child was taken to the Jefferi son hospital on Tuesday and the wa- termelon seed was removed Wednes- day with a bronchoscope. Today the litle girl was reported td be lesting as well as could be ex- pected, and unless unforeseen compli-. cations arise, she will be brought home within a week. i TO BROADCAST G-BURG GAME AT PENN STATE HEADLIGHT CLINIC TESTED1500CARS Officials Pleased With Number] of Motorists Who Had Lights Adjusted.
