PAGE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday, August 24,1030 Farm Income Is Near 9 Billions t <Dnly 1 to 4 Per Cent Below 1938, Is Government Expectation By The AP Feature Service WASHINGTON—U. S. farm income for 1939 is headed toward the nine- billion dollar mark—1 to 4 per cent below that of 1938. That's based on total farm income for the first six months—$3,381,000,000— plus government estimates of crop conditions and marketing prospects for the remainder of the year. Cash income from crops and livestock is expected to fall 5100,000,000— $350,000,000 below 1938 in line with lower prices. Value of products re- tained for consumption of the farm, such as milk, eggs, hogs, will drop about $50.000,000. But government payments, expected to reach about $575,000,000, will offset some of the loss. Already this year Uncle Sam has daid out more than $414.000.000 to farmers, compared with a total of $482.000.000 last year. The chart shows the pattern of the nation's agriculture income, including cash from crops and livestock, vaule of produce retained for consumption on the farm, and government payments. Nobody asked Norma Shearer for an autograph when the star visited Coney Island. Probably figured that the signature wouldn't look authentic vf she wrote it on an amusement ride. Insect pests are estimated to ruin about 10 per cent of the world's potential food supply each year. • ^HP ^m ^V •• *M ^V ^H ^H ^M Mi •• M ^" «^ HW FLUFFO SHORTENING FLOUR BIG 4 8 Lb....70c 4 Lb....37c 1 Barrel $4.80 48 Lb.

Ktifctor rra* certain *he kaenr Jnsimr, CHAPTER X S^TTfEN," Christine said slowly, x "if you're right, Bill—if he is sktilking in the dark somewhere —and if he does kill some one olse, I'll be—well, a sort of accomplice, won't I — because I didn't tell the police u-ho he was and have them lock him up?" "Nonsense! Not telling all you know doesn't constitute you a criminal. If it did, most of us would spend a lot of time behind bars." But in spite of Bill's light words, his voice was tense with v/orry. A newsboy came along the Boardwalk shrilling, "Wuxtry! Read all about it! Moider on the Boidwalk! Wuxtry! Wuxtry!" Bill bought a copy. "Here's a good light," he said; imd they stopped to read. Most of the first two pages were devoted to the sensational murder of the wealthy and exclusive •widow, Mrs. Emma Talbert. At one of the items Christine stared with blanching cheeks. "You said awhile ago," she faltered at lasj, "that not telling all I knew didn't make me a criminal. . . . What would this make me?" "An unknown person," the item read, "has mailed to this office a document purporting to be the will of Mrs. Emma Talbert. According to that will, the dead woman's entire fortune — except for a substantial bequest to the butler who has served her for years—is left to her only relative, Miss Christine Thorenson." "It couldn't make you anything but what you arc," Bill tried to say reassuringly, "sweet and good and honest." A great deal of significance was attached to the footprints leading from the rowboat toward the booth where the body was found, one pair of which, police were reported to have said, had been identified as Mrs. Talbert's. One item told of a strange seagoing launch which the Coast Guard lights had picked out, apparently drifting at anchor a mile or so off shore, directly opposite the booth v.'here the tragedy had occurred. According to the newspaper, a detail from the Coast Guard had motored out and boarded it, only to find it abandoned. A last-minute story told of the rinding of the murdered woman's car, and the discovery in it of a hypodermic needle and n quantity oi a powerful drug. "So the inspector's key did open the car," Christine said. "Key?" echoed Bill, who was frowning over the item. In a moment he added, "Oh, those boys use can openers"; but his voice sounded flat and strained. • • * ASIDE from the space fjiven •"• Jaspar, Bill and Christine received the lion's share of publicity. Bill came oft* with flying colors. The Impression conveyed was that he had pursued the killer along the beach in an heroic attempt to prevent the crime. But Christine was horrified to find herself played up in lurid colors as the "Boardwalk Mystery Girl" . . . "WHY," one headline screamed, "WAS THE COUSIN OF THE WEALTHY MHS. TALBERT MASQUERADING ON THE BOARDWALK UNDER AN ASSUMED NAME?" There was a gruesome description of the finding of the body, graphically contrasting Mrs. Tai- bert's rigidly cloistered life at exclusive Beachmont with the tawdry setting of her violent death. Over that, Christine shed her first tears. "Oh, Bill," she choked, her voice breaking at the stark pathos of it, "all these years she hasn't had any one but me, and I—I never really tried to be nice to her. . . . And now I haven't any one either." Bill drew her to one of the benches that lined the Boardwalk and gathered her gently into his arms as if she had been a very little girl, and she sobbed against his shoulder until gradually she found relief. Presently he said, close to her ear, "You've got me, Christine. You'll always have me—if you want me. ... I didn't mean to tell you—not for months—because I didn't dare think you'd believe me. ... I hardly believed myself that it could happen all at once that way. But this is what I've wanted from the first." Because she had been so sure from the beginning that Bill was safe and wholesome as the fresh sea air and sunshine; and because she realized all of a sudden that this was what she had really wanted from the beginning, too Christine did believe him, aric clung to him as the one sure, sane refuge in a world suddenly gone insane. And because this was Surf City concerned first and only with it; own interests, its own amusement its own desires, the Boardwalk crowd eddied and passed wilhou a backward glance. At length Christine sat up, protesting between tears and laugh- cf, "Bill—all these people! 1 couldn't have believed I'd ever 69 a thing like this." And Bill said, n IttUe unsteadily ilmself, "So far as they're concerned, we're not even here. . . . Anything could happen to any on« on this Boardwalk, and no on» Ise would even notice." L«ter, in the crisis that rushed ipon them with such cruel inevitability, Christine was to remember his words. • * * TTTHEN they finally reached ** Christine's door, Bill took her •Umost roughly into his arms again. "I wish to God I didn't have to .cave you alone," he said, hla voice icarse with trouble. "Promise me :hat you'll be careful, Christine— if you have any idea what the word means." Once in her own room, Christine set systematically about the examination of her belongings. I'm a -superstitious fool, she :hought in the release of her new happiness. But I've got to be sure. At length she found it—in a big manila envelope into which, before she had left New York, she had hastily stuck some caneeled checks she didn't quite want to throw away. "It" was a thick sheaf of thousand dollar bonds. There was nothing to indicate whose they were; and Christine did not look through the bundle to find out how many there were. After the first frightened look, she dropped them as if they burned her fingers and sat staring, her shaking hands tight at her throat. Her first impulse was to call Bill; but there was no telephone in her room. To reach one, she must go into the public hall and risk being overheard. She did the only other thins that occurred to her. Making sure that her rather flimsy door was locked, she pulled the heavy bureau in front of it, and went to bed. Christine did not hope to sleep; but after a while she did. She was hardly dressed next morning before she was summoned to the telephone. It was Bill calling. "Bill," Christine said swiftly, "I've got to see you. Something—" "Listen!" Bill's voice was sharp with warning. "Don't use word* that mean anything over the telephone. You've probably got a reporter in each pocket. . . . And don't be worried when you read in the paper that the shoes of one William Yardley have been found to fit into one pair of footprints found by the police." And the other pair, Christine remembered, were Cousin Emma's, (To Be Continued) • STAMPINGS Southern Association Memphis .........1 75 51 !siil Chnttnnoogn 71 57 .555 Atlanta 73 58 .557 Nashville 70 .58 .547 Kno.xville (58 fi;i .51!)

And believe it or not — it costs no more per gallon than other good [iainU! — Costs No More! Dear Mrs. Hope: I remember, one time, when I was speaking to a group of mothers, a lady got up and asked you very question. 'My little two-year-old girl only gets worse when I spank her," she said. "What can I do about it.'.'' I answered, "Don't spank her, then." She must have thought I was giving a flash answer, for she looked a little disgusted. Now, perhaps, she can read this with you and sec what I meant. Here is you two-year-old. She tries almost anything once. She has no real sense of values yet, and cannot tell exactly when she is doing right or wrong. It's An Age of Curiosity Anything that can be torn, pulled, pounded or smashed is grist to her mill. Her mind is a compelling force, whispering in her little ears, "Try this and see if it goes to pieces," 'Try that and see what a swell soud it makes," 'Hit the wait hard with a hammer and sec if it will make a hole or just a lound bang," Keep on until you see just what it all means." It is an age of curiosity, imagination an dthe gaining of muscular and finger control. Yes, it is very hard not to punish her, and I do not say you should not punish a little. She must learn at least the most important taboos. But I should make her suroundings simple, put many if the temptations out of reach. She must have a variety of things o do and to satisfy her longing for ffects, Little noise makers, things to put together that are simple. Keep her on regular hours. This is nore than a physical objective. The irst lessons in discipline are learn- ed through regular rounttne and know- in that one must conform to it cheerfully. Yours sinccrly, Olive Roberts Barton. Sir Isaac Newton was the first ma to climate the distance of the star with reasonable accuracy.
