GROCERY PRICES ARE HEADED DOWN C. W. Burtnett, of the wholesale grocery firm of Evans-Burtnett Company, believes there will be more or lees general readjustment of prices on household commodities in the Immediate future. Thia readjustment, he thinks, ought to bring lower prices. He pointed out that fluctuations in sugar prices have resulted in slightly lower costs to the consumer and that within the last couple days prices have dropped a trifle on soaps and on cereals, including rolled oats and corn flakes. Buying has been more or less con-serative recently, he said, the dealers and the consumers "laying It' Just what they really need, though Mr. Burtnett believes conditions will change with the price readjustment and that then there will be more business both for the retailer and the jobbers. .

Automobile Repairing and Painting Cylinders Re-ground Welding and Bnulng ENGINEERS AND MACHINISTS Largest of Its Kind in This Part of . the State - Says Auto-Stop Signals Are Reducing Accidents Alexander & Scott, auto accessory dealers at 822 Chestnut street, believe many accidents are being prevented daily because an increased number of motorists are using the automatic red-light stop signals fastened on the rear end of machines. Stepping on the car brake, in day or night time, automatically lights the red stop signal in the rear and trives oncoming motorists due warning of "danger ahead." These Chestnut street dealers say they are having many ealls every day for these lights and they believe it will not be long until most every machine will be so equipped, especially since the attachments are Inexpensive. "It is the best selling? accessory we ever handled," said one of the dealers, "and we believe it Is one of the most important. The few dollars of cost will prevent thousands of dollars of damage. We think these lights are the solution to prevent rear end collisions." SAYS SMALL EVYESTORSf WILL GET LARGER RETURN That the small investor will have unusual opportunities during the next few years to obtain safe and big yield securities is the opinion pf 'C. E. Temple local manager for II. V. Greene Company, Inc. "This will 'be caused largely by the necessity for big business to obtain outside capital in order to carry out expansion policies" he said. "Money which is now hoarded or invested unwisely must be diverted Into proper channels. -. "There is no better Illustration of this," said Mr. Temple, "than the present limited offering of the common capital shares of the Selznick Corporation, which is one of the largest and most firmly established motion picture producing and distributing companies In America."

Including the engineering force, will move about April - 1- from the Commonwealth Trust Building, Market street, to the new two-story brick office building which the contracting concern is erecting at the northeast corner of Seventh and Emerald streets, it is announced by one of the heads of the concern. Work was begun a few days ago on the office building which is to be twenty-eight feet wide and forty feet long and will cost approximately $7500. . The Central company now occupies eight rooms in the bank building; four on the fourth -floor and as many more on the second floor. Equipment and construction apparatus and material is stored in the contractors yards at Seventh and Emerald streets, and the heads of the company say "the desire to get closer to our yards" prompted the decision to erect the office building. LIFE OF G AS MANTLE IS FROM 800 TO 1000 HOURS How long should a good gas mantle last? An official of the Har-risburg Gas Company says the answer is from 800 to 1000 burning hours. Turning the gas on and off too frequently; the slight explosion that sometimes results when it is lighted, are both highly destructive to a mantle. Or a mantle, which, burning 'steadily, might last for several thousand hours, may be destroyed in a few minutes by rough handling. The gas man said: "Initial candle power is the measure of brilliancy when a mantle is first lighted. It is extremely high in cheap and inferior mantles, but soon, often within a few minutes, the brilliancy of the light fades, "The real test of a good mantle Is the sustained candle power given out over a long period. The high class mantle may not have an initial candle power equal to that of a cheaper substitute, but in the long test its superiority always is demonstrated." GASOLINE SALES HEAVY Brighter business In general and continued building operations, aided by favorable weather, are some of the reasons advanced by B. I Hauer, of the Harrisburg OH Company, why gasoline sales have been Increasing from week to week. The oil man said he is convinced that business in general is Improving and he gets that impression, he said, from the variety of business represented in the "gas" sales, and from the amount of gasoline that is being consumed; 5 Meter Cabs With Receipts PEIin-IIARRIS TAXI Day and Night Service Bell 4810 'Dial 2250 HERSHEY'S Superior Ice Cream The Standard of the State A smile foUows every spoonful NUSSMFG.CO.

R. Eckenrode, general agent of the Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company. "In many Instances recently," he said, , "we have made provision through trust agreements to guarantee incomes to fathers and mothers, wives, sons and daughters, and granchildren. In some of these cases provision has been made for college educations, special , training and wedding trouseaus. " . "By this method the danger of bad irfvestments is eliminated, and ample provision is made for an income sufficient to take care of all dependents. Because of the many interesting features of this manner of distribution, it is advisable for more men carrying large amounts of life Insurance to investigate thoroughly the possibilities of trust agreements." Flower Sales Are Big The Christmas season was marked by record breaking flower sales but the big distribution in that period has not retarded buying in this post holiday season, according to Ruth M. Maeder, 705 North Third street. The demand for flowers continues heavy and we are fortunate In having on hand a choice lot of cut flowers and potted plants,"-aid Miss Maeder. Narcissus and sweet peas are plentiful for this season of the year and there is an abundance of choice roses arid carnations, she said. "Our assortment is one of the best we have had In many Winters," Bhe added. CALL A TAXI Either phone 2160 "Fool Proof" Meters Reliable Service Harrisburg Taxicab & Baggage Co.
