-Al/toONA MIRROR—WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1929 / MORE SKELETONS •r ADD TO MYSTERY (By United Press.) NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y., Nov. '.— Which of the four skeletons unearthed \ under the old French chapel in Fort Niagara, near here, are the remains of two British off leers/killed in the attack on the French fearrlspn of the fort in 1759, perplexes members of the Old Fort Niagara association today. With the discovery of two skeletons several days ago, historians in the association believed they had unearthed the remains of General John Prideaux and Colonel John Johnstone, leaders of the British attackers, who were felled by French bullets two days before the fort fell into British hands. Continuing their excavations, however, found two more skeletohs, one with the skull gashed, as though split by an Indian warrior's tomahawk. On the other hand, a workman's shovel niay have gashed the skull, according to George F. Ferguson, who is directing the excavations. No brass buttons or other military equipment was found near the remains to distinguish the skeletons, as those of officers or enlisted men. However, the fact that casket handles were found near one skeleton leads the local historians to' believe the body was that of General Prideaux. An. officer of his rank would have been buried in, a substantial casket, whereas men of lower rank probably would have been interred in simple pine boxes, or merely wrapped in blankets, they contend. Digging Is being continued in the hope of finding more bodies on which T Borne military equipment may be found to give a clue as to their Identity. In case any of the remains are Identified as those of the two British officers) they will be transported to British soil for final burial, members of the association Said today. _; ,v DEMAND FOB HARDWARE SHOWING IMPROVEMENT i NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Any Unfavorable reaction to the recent stock market crash has failed, thus far, to evidence Itself in the current orders being received by the nation's hardware wholesalers, Hardware Age will say tomorrow in its weekly market summary. The demand for hardware has increased perceptibly during the past week in all sections of the country. More pronounced improvement is noticeable in the middle west and south, although increased activity has been reported in every section. Orders for Christmas merchandise are, in the main, responsible for the Stimulation. The demand for staple items is being well sustained at good levels. Sales of winter goods are lagging to some extent, with miid weather responsible. Toys, cutlery, Juvenile vehicles, electric appliances, sporting goods, hunt- Ing equipment and giftwares are all especially active on pre-holiday orders. Some hardware jobbers have expressed the opinion that the stock debacle will have a tendency to stabilize trade, asserting that it should encourage building operations and other substantial investments. Others anticipate some curtailment of purchases, especially in articles classified as luxuries. In the majority of Instances prices •re notably steady at this time. The changes noted are mainly in the nature of adjustments. Collections have a normally good average.
