Large Fruit Farm Is Sold Harry Robinette Plank and Mrs. Phoebe Griest Plank, parents of Harry H. Plank, wanted him to follow in the footsteps of his father, Dr. Jacob R. Plank, and take up the practice of medicine; but he chose the pruning knife instead of the scalpel and he has been successful in the nursery business. A quarter of a century ago, "Hen" Plank, six feet, two inches in height, and with a long arm that could send a baseball over the plate like a bullet, brought many a victory to the York Springs team. One of his greatest local victories, was, 28 years ago, when he sent the fast New Oxford team home from Griest park with a defeat after they had won a number of consecutive games. While he. was- pitching at Gettysburg college, Plank had several offers to enter state professional baseball and it is conceded by authorities on, th|t subject had he followed that vocation there would have been another Adams county Plank whose mighty right arm would have carried him into the top list of hurlers in one of the big leagues. "Hen" had one of the best curves that I have seen any pitcher throw. Ask "Jack" Starry, who used to work behind the plate when Plank was on the mound, if the big fellow didn't have everything a successful pitcher should possess! One of the largest real estate transactions in recent years was consummated Saturday afternoon, with the sale by Frank B.

The Deardorff farm, known as the Luther Deardorff place, contains 7! acres of apple trees and 25 acres of peach trees. Crops of both fruits this year were said to have been exceptionally heavy. The seller plans to harvest ant dispose of-the apple crop and then conduct a sale before he moves from the farm. Mr. Deardorff plans to move to Gettysburg. County Commissioner Baltzley said he will move to the Deardorf farm from his farm in Hamiltonban township as soon as Mr. Deardorff moves away. Paul Wetzel will move into Mr Baltzley's home as soon as the county commissioner moves to the Deardorff place. Prize Fighter Lands in Jai You just can't put some of these old "boys" on the shelf. For instance, there is N. R. Bailey, of Dillsburg, oldest active jeweler in Central Pennsylvania, who, at 83, is still prying into the inside parts of watches with his magnifying glass.

He was born and reared at Parkton, Maryland, and came to the York county village 56 years ago. Mr. Bailey daily can be found In his store, busy at his trade.
