Tioga Eagle (Newspaper) - February 6, 1918, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania6 Odds and ends notebook. Little stories that conclude the ser ies the Sorth Laud. Take a Bunch from 50 to 75 peo ple and cooped up in a Little River town for two weeks then put them a Steamer for another two weeks and they Are bound to Start something. The Are Little less than school Chil Dren after All. It was. A 14-Day trip Foroi St. Michael 10 Seattle and Days before we left the passengers began to speculate the possibilities a bad storm in the Bering sea and seasickness. And it was a Tunny proposition. Every last one us dreaded a storm Ana hoped for a smooth voyage yet those dreaded it worst were loudest in declaring we were sure to get it. They seemed to be trying to Bluff to scare up their own courage by scaring the other Fello w the trip across the Bay to Nome was As smooth As a Duck Pond and in the stay at that port the most the passengers began to fortify for the Long trip out in the open. Some fruit eating some Laid in anti sea sick dope some took liver pills and others Epsom s. Each according to his own idea. As for myself i just did t do any thing. 1 was passively and patiently resigned. I knew 1 would be the first to crawl into my berth and stay j there for in the Many trips water i had Ever been the first to leave the deck and. The last to come Back. If anyone could be seasick 1 was one. So 1 did t dope and when the boat pulled out i was fully resigned Roll but contrary to All predictions it did t Roll. The Bering sea was her Best behaviour and the croakers could Only Alibi with wait till we get Down near the Guminak pass and then Well Hunt our so Day after Day we steamed along with Little wind and with fogs settling Down closer and denser and when we neared the dreaded pass there was nothing to be but fog and one the passengers declared he could hear it. The boat kept reducing its Speed and the fog whistles kept up a one minute Din night and Day. Every body was asking where were and none answered. I heard one officer Tell another that nobody knew where were but that we should be in the pass. That night the boat slowed Down to eight Miles an hour. The next morning there was a Gen eral feeling uneasiness All Over the j ship and this was added to by the boat picking up a wireless order to go into dutch Harbor and take Board 1c japs that had come ashore in a Lifeboat from the wrecked Steamer Kot Chira Maru. The boat went the rocks july 23 and the survivors had been in an open boat for weeks. This order was later countermanded As another boat took them then a ship s officer with a boy demonstrator went into every berth and showed the passengers How to apply the life belts speedily. Next the Anchor was swung out ready to drop and third the Crew was called out for fire practice. T and with these nervous Hension had the run the boat. Tie Anchor was about to be drop Ped when suddenly the fog lifted for perhaps 15 minutes. It was t necessary to take the nautical observations. Dead ahead us it did not look More than a mile was the Rocky reef and Between tis and the Shore the Oast abounded with submerged rocks that boat did t turn around. It simple hacked up. And that very slowly it was a very close Call to add another to the Many boats whose skeletons Are strewn along the Rocky coast in Imam pass. But now out danger we returned to seasickness. The Ocean was a Little rough and one by passengers began to Dis appear from the Steamer chairs. And i to feel like a real prize was we had a wealthy Auto dealer named from san Francisco As a passenger. He was a Large Man and As big a joker As he was tall and he was a raw joker. To had made Many trips Many Waters and had never been sick v woman might to extended borne 3. Doan s have been used in Kline troubles for 50 years. Endorsed by Dorset at Home. Proof Merit in this Wellsboro citizen s statement s. Louis Herrington 27 water St. Says i have taken Doan s kidney pills and they have Given me Relief from kidney trouble. I have bought them at the Corner drug Price 60c, at All dealers. Don t simply ask for a kidney Doan s kidney same that Herrington had. Foster Milburn o., props., Buffalo. N. A Toast. Think this Over. If Oil Aren t fighting Are you Worth fighting for Sid says in the february american Magazine there is something t want to Sav about this War. Perhaps you will think it a queer twist to the thing. Anyhow Here it is the other Day i heard a discouraging report an Able Man in Chi Cago who for years was a bad Drinker two years ago he quit absolutely. For two years he has not taken a drop. He has been cleaning himself up morally intellectually and physically. I Don t know him talked with him. But i have seen him occasionally and with others have rejoiced in his improvement. It has been an inspiration just to look at him just to hear about the fight he was making and winning. But now Corner bad news. Be has lost the fight. He has gone Back to drink. He has Given up the struggle. When i heard this i Felt almost As bad As i did when i heard the 1 news about the germans beating the i italians. Somehow. It was another for the forces evil Over the forces Good. Somehow it made me consider Tho War with More gloom somehow it made me think is the use Tho soldiers bed shirts. 53 nightingales 57 prs.

Don t growl about the new potato look ahead and see what they will do for you in future War speeds up things in unforeseen Wajs. Who should have thought that to make War we must adopt Standard grades for potatoes but the new potato grades have been put into effect by the department agriculture and the food administration and this Winter potato grow ers Are learning to follow them. It is a War time task and like every thing else new causes a Good Deal grumbling. Grumbling will not abolish these grades however for Uncle Sam is behind then and potato growers cheerfully work to Gether through the present ment period they will reap great benefits. In explanation the grades and by Way showing what they will mean after everybody has become rec customer to them the United states food administration has issued the following statement the economies and benefits grading Pota it is an easy matter to criticise unthinkingly. Because this any movement at All out the Ordinary seems subject to criticism principally by people who Are not constructionists themselves and who per haps Don t know anything about the movement but Are simply agin it. The proposition grading potatoes is one which the United states depart ment agriculture As Well As the various state departments has Long been desirous seeing in effect. The Bureau markets has made most careful and extensive investigations to deter Mirie what grades would Best meet the needs the country As a whole and what effect the adoption such grades would have. It has had in mind first As the agricultural department always has the inter est the growers but has not failed to consider carefully the interest the consumer also. There can be no logical objection to grading and there is no question that the sections which Best Grade any product Are the ones which receive the highest prices for it. The Western Box Apple Industry could never have reached its present stage without strict grading. The Cali fornia fruit Industry is another one made famous and profitable by Grad ing. Getting Down to potatoes Flor Ida has graded her shipments this crop better than any other state in the Union and during the time when those shipments Are moving she receives the highest Price by far any Section. There is another phase the situation. The consumption potatoes in our country is less than that any other potato growing nation. This is due principally to the fact that the potatoes grown in the United states Are not equal in Quality to those produced in other countries. In Europe various varieties sell at a Premium because their Fine table and some varieties Are raised Only for manufacturing Pur poses. In this country Little thought is Given to anything except altogether too Little even to and we May say comparatively none to Quality. Buyers Are to a great extent to blame for this condition. Forced by Competition which is excessively extravagant they pay the same Price for Brown s potatoes for Jones Smiths even though Brown s May be much better qual Ity. The result is that the grower has had no incentive to produce qual Ity.
