SPUDS SENT TO OHIO ON SALE
Contributions to Flood Sufferers
Found in Markets.
Cincinnati— Many householders in
Cincinnati who Saturday bought sacks
of potatoes advertised for sale at a
reduced price by a large grocery of
Cincinnati, were surprised when they
opened them to find they contained
cards saying that the potatoes had
been grown in Oregon or Washington
and had been donated to the sufferers
by the recent disastrous Hoods in the
The grocery firm had advertised
that it would sell 10,000 sacks of
Western potatoes at about half the
regular price, or 36 cents a bushel.
The buyer for the firm said they had
been offered ¡him at a low price by a
member of the flood relief committee,
who had told him the committee had
received huge shipments of potatoes
from the West, and that because the
tubers were a perishable commodity
the committee had decided to sell
them. He said the price at which he
bought them enabled his firm to sell
them at a small profit at 36 cents,
though the prevailing price of pota
toes in Cincinnati retail market is
now 60 cents a bushel.
No statement from the relief com
mittee was obtainable.

He chuckled until the carriage

“I shall be glad of any advice you

He pulled a cord, and when the
carriage stopped I got out and stood

didn't try to follow him.
The packet arrived next morning.
The notes I stowed away In an Inside
pocket. The typewritten Instructions
were unsigned and undated.
According to them Craig was a
member of gang "D,” employed on a
convict farm, In draining and Inclos

there he was digging trenches with a

About twenty men were in the
gang. On the outer side a couple of
warders strolled up and down with
rifles under their arms. There was
nothing but a low hedge to stop the
convicts If they knocked down the
guards with their spades and made a
run for It. But when I looked back
across the wastes of the moor I un

anxious to make new acquaintances,
but I couldn’t very well ask them to

I took my chair, and wished him good

He was a small, gray-bearded man
of over sixty, as I reckoned, and he
seemed as disinclined for conversa

my luck, and worked through the din
