small lots, one at Oxford and the
other at Morriston, both right on the

probably twice .than much.
Formerly there k was absolutely no
demand for hogs here. One raised

NEVER STOP KNITTING
The question as to whether Amer
ican women are doing a good work in
knitting sweaters, mufflers, wristlets,
ete for the soldiers, seems pretty
weli covered by the following from
the St. Petersburg Independent:
More About Sweaters
Members of the local Red Cros
chapter who have labored hard all
summer and fall to make sweaters
for the soldiers and sailors, were
righteously indignant that Secretary
Baker and Secretary Daniels should
say that the work they have been do doing
ing doing is not necessary. The ladies have
given their time and energy and
money to, the cause and they resented
criticism. There has been in the
country considerable debate over the
sweater question and to determine
whether or not the energies of the
women are being used in the wrong
direction, the New York Tribune sent
one of its staff reporters to Washing Washington
ton Washington to talk with Secretary Baker and
Secretary -Daniels. The interviews
published in the Independent yester yesterday
day yesterday were given to the Tribune re
porter. It is not at all probable that
the officials were misquoted. The in-j
terviews appeared last Thursday.
Since, then, in the Official Bulletin of
Saturday, : Secretary Baker has this
"Ah apparent misunderstanding

ment toward the knitting of sweaters
and comforts for our soldiers. The

ments garments through" tbe American Red
Cross and is appreciative of the spirit
which" prompts American women in
their knitting for the troops. It is
true that a sweater, is not included, in
the regular equipment of the army
and it .is not regarded as an abso
lutely essential garment. However,
a knitted "sweater is a garment of
great serviceability and constitutes a
welcome addition to a soldier's equip
ment, particularly when the soldier
is "bp duty in the rigorous climate of
France While the department itself
has not officially called upon any or
ganization to supply sweaters, cer
tain divisions of the army have, made
such requisitions and have been
gratified that the supply was avail available

who desire to add this comfortable

ments" statements" came an urgent appeal to the
womep pfhe country, for more knit knitted
ted knitted sweaters spcks and wristlets for
tho soldiers and sailors. This was
issued by the Red Cross War Council
in a statement disclosing that the
Red Cross has been obliged to buy
half a million machine-made sweat
ers to meet immediate "demands.
"It is imperative that all of the
sweaters, -wristlets and socks that
can ; possibly vbe made by the women
of the country should be turned in to
the supply department at the earliest
possible date. With the cold weathei
coming on, the demand for sweaters,
especially, has been beyond the ca
pacity of all our resources to supply.
The requests of our organization in
France for .sweaters and knitted
goods have had to remain unsatisfied
on account of our inability to secure
enough for men in our own army and
navy. We call upon the women to
give up their very best effort from
now until at least January 1, that wt-
may be able to furnish our men with
these comforts and have some to
spare for the dire needs in France."
The women of St. Petersburg pro propose
pose propose to keep on knitting and .feel that
their work- is appreciated by the sol soldiers
diers soldiers and is well worth while. And
it is worthy of special notice that the
knitting is not in place of .any other
work, but is in addition to the regu regular
lar regular Red Cross work in hospitals.
"We are frozen out on the open
pier and in the open boats, especially
ati night, and a boy will steal a
sweater rather than a gold watch."
This is the kind of letters received
constantly by the comforts commit committee
tee committee of the Navy League, and which
convinces the women who are knit knitting
ting knitting for the sailors that their laboi
is not wasted.
Said Mrsl Herbert xL. Satterlee,
chairman of the comforts committee:
"Stop knitting ? Certainly not. We
are going to keep right on, and we
are working, harder Ithanj ever, now
that winter is so close at hand."
" To offset the secretary's statement

failing until.it was first used; also,
that during the greater part of the

it has been necessary to either use
the engine or let. the city go in dark

doing everything in its power to have
the trouble corrected tho he could
have found out that it was by a few

been in his paper a word about the

the preparations made to muffle the

Annoying as the noise made .by the
engine is, the council Has at least an
other matter to consider, and that is
lighting the city. It can't iffprd to
have the town plunged jn darkness,
and we dont think that even tfye peo

The Florentine Musicians
Andrew JVissochi heads the Floren Florentine
tine Florentine Musicians, the attractive musical
organization to be heard at the Tem Temple
ple Temple tomorrow night. Not long since
the Florentines appeared at Fayette Fayette-ville,
ville, Fayette-ville, Ohio, and thisis, the report
turned in on Vissochil
"Andrew Vissochi, performer on
the concert accordion, is a rather
small Italian with a large gift for
music. What shall we say of him?
It is as difficult to give a just crit criticism
icism criticism of him as it is for a Tar Heel
to pronounce his name. He comes
upon the stage having strapped to
his body a musical instrument which
looks like a miniature piano or a
mammoth accordion. When he be begins
gins begins to manipulate it, he becomes a
Sousa playing crashing marches, cor cornet
net cornet solos, trombone solos; he change
to a Verdi banging out the 'Anvil
Chorus,' wailing the 'Miserere,' play playing
ing playing sweet Italian melodies; then he is
the messenger bringing back the old
Southern songs, 'Massa's in the Cold,
Cold Ground,' 'Old Black Joe,' etc.;
now he is the modern performer,
grinding out with rythm and flow
that one never thought was in them
the ragtime pieces. Vissochi, with
his accordian, becomes an animated
ensemble of staccatos, andantes,
larghettos, allegrettos, fortissimos,
sharps and flats, naturals and inci incidentals,
dentals, incidentals, minors and majors, and all
things else in the gamut of musical
expression that haven't gone out of
style. And he passes it out to his
hearers with an evident relish and a
light upon his Florentine countenance
that gives added zest to those drink drinking
ing drinking the melody. Unlike the ladies of
his company, Vissochi cannot be said
to be pretty or handsome, but in his
face are cut deeply the lines of fine
humor, and out of his dark eyes there
beams kindliness, as if Italia's golden

"Fools for Luck"
"Fools for Luck" is to be the best
picture shown at the Temple this
week, so if you can't go to the "whole
six, choose "Fools for Luck." It is a
photo comedy adapted from Kenneth
Harris' "Talisman," which ran in the
Saturday Evenine Post. It is a storv
of good luck, bad luck, love and other i
things. If you are not a bit super superstitious,
stitious, superstitious, please pass quietly out (for
you won't think it as funny as it will
be to superstitious people) and maybe
the people at the box offi will give
you your money back maybe. There
is a gratifying pleased feeling in
one's breast to watch the self -redemption
of Philander, who had been
a firfn believer in rabbit's foot and
other good luck charms. He gets
down to bedrock and builds the foun foundation
dation foundation of character on his best ef efforts,
forts, efforts, and we see him throw away his
gambling friends and get down heart
and soul to his job. This splendid
picture stars Taylor Holmes and the
incidents in his life will remind you
