PAGE EIGHTEEN THE EVENING NEWS, HARRISBURG, PENNA., SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1926 dren Burned to Death as Fire Destroys Home Today 'Bathtub Party9 Used by Many in Hollywood as Test of Cinema Value HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 17. The film capital has many claimants to fame, such as former "Follies" girls, one-time Russian "Countesses," prominent authoresses and sometimes heiresses. But the latest and most emphatic jn her clamorings for attention is the screen aspirant who boasts, "I was one of those who attended Earl Carroll's champagne party." The girls it seems there are already a score of them are more than willing to paint vivid word pictures of the famous New York farty which was featured, they say, y a bath tub full of champagne, with a girl in it as an incidental decoration. Notwithstanding certain glaring errors in the continuity of their etories, "the bath tub party" girls are merely victims of a condition When the acting business in Holly-' BONG TRADING LIGHT TODAY By ELMER C. WALZER NEW YORK, April 17. Bond trad-injr dropped off in the short session on the stock exchange today. Prices, howeer. held within a narrow range with a tinge of irregularity. Traction issues featured the transactions but failed to keep up the steady upward movement of the past few days. New York Railways' 6's were the strong spot in this group advancing if a poont. nlterborough bonds receded fractionally while B. M. T. 6's rose a trifle. Rails' were well bought though only in moderate quantities. Florida East Coast 5's were strong and higher as wre the new 6's of this line. St. Louis, San Francisco 4's A and B. and 0. refungind 5's gained1 fractionally. French government bonds displayed strength, however, in spite of the new low by franc. The 7's nnd 7's rose while the 8'a held unchanged. Belgian loans were firm while Finland 7's sagged off nearly a point. Bond prices in general during the week have been steadily rising. The average for forty bonds showed a net gain of .05 despite the falling off of .03 yesterday. The average for ten second grade rails reached the high point of the year yesterday at 93.81. LIGHT TRADING ON CURB TODAY By HAROLD G. FLYNN NEW YORK, April 17. Ford Motor cf Canada continued to give ground on small sales on the Curb Market today, dropping twenty-three points. The transactions were light, most of the curb activity being confined to bonds, where price changes were within a narrow range Ford cf Canada has been on the I down grade for the past three days. Today t opened at 450 and then declining to 440 on the next transaction, a net loss of thirty-five points from the previous close and 135 points down from Wednesday's final price.

Draws Eight Aces in Pinochle Game Bw United Prcst McKEESPORT. April 17. "Here, hoys, what do you think of this?" was the remark of L. V. Entyre, high school athletic coach here, when he drew "one thousund aces" in a pinochle gnmc. Entyre said he did not feci like emulating the Chicago man who dropped dead when he was dealt eight aces. In fact, he did not even faint. It was said that a card hand of eight aces comes once in 500,000 deals. FifMClflL NEWS Krao, Missing Link of Circus Sideshows, Dies From 'Flu9 NEW YORK, April 17. Do you remember Krao, the missing link of the circus sideshows? Millions of people stared at Krao while she lived. For upwards of forty years she toured the country, showing hnr long black beard and monkey hands. Krao did not take her misfortune off Into corner and mrpo over it. She turned adversity into prosperity. And she stood on the bench, day after day and year after year, and exhibited her peculiarity. - But Just before she died yesterday she asked that her freak'ah body be cremated. No one shruld see In death what millions had seen in life. Krao spoke four languages. She had no cartilage in her nose. Hair covered her body. The hair on her arms ran up monkey-wise, Instead of toward the wrists as in the case ot wood gets slow, it takes a' mighty good story to get one by the casting directors. Six months ago it was the vogue to have one's press agent broadcast that his client was really a countess who had hidden her distinguished title and past so that she might "make her own way in the films." A year ago the thing to do was to separate from one's husband by way of a "marital vacation." Some original souls actually obtained l divorces for the publicity it gavel them. But the girls who "attended" the widely discussed "champagne bath P"rty" in New York are the rage right now, and some seem to think that they already outnumber the "former Follies beauties" who always have been as close to Holly- wood as the skin of a thin eel.

Grains Close Higher CHICAGO, April 17. Prices closed hipher on the Board of Trade today. Wheat was strong and active throuirhrut the sr-ssion and cl"d sharply higher in all deliveries. The deferred fuures were rgp"cially rtrong. Heavy buying of futures in Winnipeg and the natural strength in thnt market together with the unusually heavy export birincss was the patent factor in the advance here. The increased export activity was one of the features of the week. Cash markets here and at other principal points were higher. The tone of the local market as a whole was much better than during the previous session. Corn came out from under a rather indifferent although fractionally higher opening and closed sharply up all along the line. Covering by Eastern Fhnrts and disposition of locals to hold up gave this grain its shnrp boom.

She had cheek pouches In which she could carry food like a Simian. Her fingers would bend either way, bending back till they lay flat on the back of her hand. According to circus tradition Krao was found In Slam in 1883 by an explorer named Trofessor Farini, who took her to Berlin as a freak of nature. Village gossip in the mountains where- Farini found her was ti the effect that Krao's mother had been frightened by a baboon before her confinement. The explorer grew fond of the srange, shy creature and had her well educated in Berlin Then she came to America and started showing as a freak In the old Brandenburg Museum in Philadelphia. Influenza caused Krao's death.

The Pa'riot-News Harrlsburg's Want-Ad Directory Read for Profit Use for Results WORKERS CALM AS FIRE RAGES NEAR FACTORY With a fire raging in two frame dwellings only fifty feet away, more than 800 employes of the General Cigar Company, South Second street, Steelton, maintained the utmost calmness while the Steelton fire department fought and extinguished the blaze. Officials of the cigar company said that the fire drills that are held xegularly by employes of the factory stood them in good stead today, inasmuch as .there was virtually no excitement' in the big factory building. Officials of the company watched the progress of the blaze in order to have the employes march out in case of necessity. The fire, which started at . the rear of 554 South Second street, was discovered shortly after 11 o'clock. Before the firemen arrived on the scene, the flames had spread to the adjoining house, 556 South Second street. The greater damage was done to No. 554, where the flames caused damage to the kitchen of the home and also to the room on the second floor, above the kitcht l. Fire officials, who said the cause of the fire had not been determined, said the loss would probably be more than $1500. 4 Huntington FOR MONDAY FIRST. $500; maidens, 8-year-olds up; 6 furlongs: Noko, 109; Goizeko Izarra, 99; Five Marks, 109; Gen.

She said she saw the burglar and asked him what he was doing. The man d'd not reply, but, seizing a brick, hurled it through the window of the shop. Mrs. Cookerly then fired,' and the man fled. Bel; mo, who possesses a fad of collecting old coins, had gathered number of silver and crppcr pieces, valued at about $25. He had been in the habit of displaying the pieces in his window during the day, but he always removed the coins during the night. The burglar, who is believed to be well acquolntad in the borough, was evidently unaware of the fact, since the blind in the window was drawn. Mrs.. Cookerly believes she could identify the man, who she thinks is a resident of the borough. Four bot-Mcs of cream, taken from neighborhood doors were found in the door of the shoe shop.
