HIST03ICAL DEPT IOWA DES MOIRES 19 HIS WEEK in Mills County T M Malvmiian who keeps In touch with the old home town through The Leader Is Fred H. Stone of Lincoln. Mr. Stone wrote recently when renewing his subscription: "Hard to get along without it- (The Leader) bnt some of the news la rather foreign to us after being away from Malvern for about 28 years. So man? of my old friends hare passed on. "We are all well and I am on the job at the Western Brick every day where I have been ever since coming here. We came to Malvern in the spring o! 1889 and left there in the fall of 1919 for Lincoln. Like it here very much. Regards to any of my friends who might ask about me." : • • • The weather Is a snbjert of universal interest and Mrs. Carl Paulson wrote a few weeks ago from Downey, Cal.: "We have been enjoying the nice weather here up until the past week when Old Man Winter arrived for two nights and it registered freezing. Warms up very rapidly in the day time so one doesn't mind a few chilly nights." lowans the past, week would welcome nights no chillier than that — as our •weekly weather summary shows. • • • Phone rails from great din* lances are always highly exciting and Mrs. Ray W. Jones had her birthday brightened by one such when her daughter Norene phoned her Sunday from Maul, Hawaiian Islands, where she is a nurse In a government hospital. The call came through quickly and clearly and connections were so good that no Idea of the distance was given by the sound. MILUTCOUNtypT ,.dV/VC£ yOME NWAPER MALVERN. MILLS COU.VTT.

Linda Tolby Is one of I -the outstanding woman preachers of our day. She c o m b i nea beauty, truth and logic in the presentation o f the gospel, nan a "thus saith the Lord," for all she says. She 1ms a winsome personality and a forceful delivery. Her preaching is characterized by sincerity, earnestness and posltiveness. She is warmly seconded in her efforts by her husband, Rev. Floyd Tolby, who Is a gifted song director, both in congregational singing and in choir leadership; He has several spirited c h o r uses which long linger in the minds of the people. The Tol- bys play several different instruments, am one them the, latest type marimbas. They appear in both instrumental and vocal solos and duets. Music is a big feature of their services. The Baptists ot Malvern consider themselves fortunate in securing the services of this strong evangelistic team when there are so many demands made on their time and effort. Remember the date, Feb. 11 through Feb. 23. "Once you hear the Tolbys preach, play and sing you will want to hear them often," says Rev. El. V. Goad of Rose Hill, business manager of the Tolbys, who has had them in three meetings, the last at Rose Hill, when there were 60 professions of faith.

DRAINAGE PROBLEMS AGAIN IN LITIGATION « Drainage problems of the Missouri river bottom area are again in litigation as a suit has been filed by 11 landowners against three other landowners of the same section, F. E. Dashner, Ella Warren and R. C. Good. The case Involves a 60 year old question of water disposal in an area of about 7,000 acres. The plaintiffs ask that the water have an unobstructed flow in the course of Ha natural drainage to the southwest. Their petition calls for an injunction directing the sheriff of Mills county to remove dykes and levees from the F. E. Dashner land which hinder the natural flow. Mr. Dashner was permanently enjoined in 1926 from constructing dykes to force waters so that they flooded the highway. A similar injunction is asked against R. C. Good unless he removes the obstructions from his land. The plaintiffs allege dykes and levees are attributed to the Dashuer and Good lands, while a silt obstruction has filled the natural course on Mrs. Warren's land. The plaintiff, George M. Graves, and his co-plaintiffs are Mary Welsh, Hattle Welsh, Harry E. Welsh, Winnie Welsh, Grover Mlckelwait, Nell S. Bogart, Mary P. Dean, Lee Sargent, S. W. John- sou and James P. Donelau. Ellis Graves Accepts Position with Cappels Ellis Graves has accepted a position at the Cappel Machinery Co., and will move to Malveru this week. Mr. and Mrs. .Graves have resided in Council Bluffs for several years. They are fortunate individuals who own a home on Prospect avenue and will not have the customary bousing problem.

Tragedy visited Mills county in two Instances this week when death came to a Olenwuod school lad in a coasting accident and an aged Silver City resident burned to doath in a farm house flrp. H.\nv C. ANDERSON* A night flro which destroyed his farm home caused the death of Harry C. Anderson, about 75, who lived with his son Dale north of Silver City. Dale was away from home at the time of the fire and Mr. Anderson, who evidently failed to awaken when the house caught fire Tuesday night, perished in the flumes. The Glenwood and Sliver City fire departments rushed to tho scene when the fire was discovered but arrived to late to save any part of the small house. When Mr. Anderson could not be located the next morning, several members of the Malvern fire department were called Wednesday morning and went up to extinguish a pile of coal which was still burning In the basement of the place. After the basement had been cooled enough to permit a search under the direction of County Coroner Floyd James, bones and parts of a skull were found in the ashes which, with other evidence were Identified as Mr. Anderson. A coroner's jury was Impaneled, upon which were John Hall, Orvllle Weak and Cal Ritchie ot Malvern, and they returned a verdict ot death due to suffocation and burning. Surviving Mr. Anderson are his son and four daughters, Mrs. Ona Lee Miller of Silver City, Mrs. Dorothy Handler ot Chicago, Mrs. Clifford Dundas ot Salt Lake City and Mrs. Sever Knudson of Sioux Rapids.
