The above items, in so far as they

Packing plants handling canned

explaining the uniisiinlly unfavorable

One firm states that never since the
year 1878 have general conditions been
worse in the east. The season was
backward, planting was delayed on ac
count of continuous rains and fintally
after the crop of corn, beans, beets, to
matoes and turnips were maturing, came
the killing frosts of September 30
throughout the east.
Besides the unfavorable crop condi

of labor, cans, boxes, labels and in fact

prediction is made that the 10 cent can

In comparing the prices of canned
corn, it is shown thnt almost all grades
have advanced fullv one-half. Hucco

worth almost double that of a year ago,
while there is an advance of at least 50
per cent all along the line
Tomatoes show an advance of about
one-third for the common brands with a
higher per cent of increase for fancy
goods- Even canned pumpkin lines up

Over Hundred Years
Old-Votes for Wilson
Chicago, Oct. 27. Arm in arm with
his 79-year-old wife. Jacob Harris, aired
102, of 8U South Laflin street, the old
oti ngimereu voter in Illinois and proli
ably in the United Htatee, will walk to
the polls on November 7 and both will
cast their bullots for Woodrow Wilson.
The couple recently celebratedo their
golden anniversary and had about them
33 descendants, including great grand
children. Mr. Harris cast his first vote for An
drew Jackson and was a democrat until
after the war, in which he fought on the
side ot tne Lnion. Jlo voted for Van
Bureu, Polk, Pierce, Fillmore, and Bu-j
chanan. Conditions led him to change'
to the republican party and he voted
for Lincoln and every other republican
candidnte until 1U12.
He has now returned to his early love,
the democratic party, induced to do so
fby the character and services of Presi
dent Uson. As Mr- Jlarris expressed
it to ail interviewer, he cannot consist
ently remain with tho republican party
any longer. ' .
Mrs. Harris declared that "Mr. Wil
son is a just and noble man and every
woman iu Illinois should vote for him.
Resides, the nation is iu an extremely
grave and critical situation, because of
war-mad Europe, and I believe Presi
dent Wilson is the only man who can
steer our ship through the troubled wa
ters." . Both are in good health. They read
the newspapers closely and keep in
touch with current happenings.
