There are around 7,500 varieties, in many sizes, shapes f and colons. However, only about 50 varieties are market; ed to any considerable extent. Apples can be eaten raw or baked, boiled, stewed or fried. They can be made into the world's best pies, and also into dumplings and tarts. 'Or they can be converted into jelly, butter, jam or sauce. They can be dried, too—if, as a last resort, you cannot think of anything else to do with them. Furthermore, apples can be pressed into cider, and cider in (urn can either stay cider or else. In fact, there are few products in the world that can be used in so many ways. A person might think, with all these varied uses, that there should be no difficulty in eating or drinking all the apples we produce. T5ut no one knows better than the apple growers of Mason county that such is not the case, especially when the crop reaches bumper proportions as has been the case in three out ofx the last five years. -, Ordinarily the nation uses about 7(5,000.000 bushels of apjuY.s a yeai-. This year the harvest is around 103,000.000 bushels, with Michigan producing the largest crop in its history. The Michigan crop, in fact, is nearly twice as large as that- of last/--year. And other apple-producing states are for the most part in the same situation. TUESDAY, OCT. 31'1939. By< '111 10 T T FTTLIO N_^, _____ WRITTEN FOR AND RELEASED BV CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION BTNOPSIS /„*••. Peake, proprietor of Hill Rouse New England summer resort, is foun murdered by the "spite fence" erectet ,aoar her property by her estranee( , fitter. Miss Ivy Newcomb. Previous t the the murder the guests had been con ; eerned about the poisoning of one o 1 their number, Mrs. Rutherford, whi recovers; strange sounds of a prowle on the property, and the ransacking o one of the rooms. Those at Hill House besides Dr. Neal and Josie Peake children of the dead woman, are Sally Gordon, spending her first vaca tlon there; her close friends, Rhoda and her flance Duncan; Dr. Paul am Pauline Rutherford, children of Mrs Rutherford; Coral Easton, Bruce Orton and Joseph Barry. Josie is friendly with Alan Murray, who lives at Miss Ivy's, and that inrQriates her brother Neal. He likes Coral Easton, for whom Josia has no use. The police begin their investigation. The police chief enlists the aid of Miss Gordon, then Introduces Captain Lancy, well-known detestive, who has been called in to take charge of the case. As Captain Lancy begins to question all of those at Hill House, Miss Ivy pays a surprise visit. During a heated argument Miss Ivy collapses from shock and Is taken home. Then Captain Lancy begin* his questioning. A heated argument between Coral Easton and Josie breaks out during the detective's examination of Sally Gordon. CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO LANCY SMILED gravely In answer to my avowal: "Ask me anything you want to. I'll answer." "I think," he said slowly, "that we may allow all but Dr. Rutherford, Dr. Peake, Miss Peake and Miss Gordon to retire, Chief Forrest. Do you agree?" The chief nodded and Lancy went on: "You may all go now. I shall want to talk to you again in the morning." "I don't want to go to the cot- 'tage alone." It was Pauline who spoke. She had not said one word T -i -.« «™ «™ , . spoJte, She had not said one word In some years around 10.000,000 bushels are exported. ,after her piteous outcry when nn item nt 4-1-. _ «.«« 1. „_ — — ii • — j T«i i t * t . \ f"Vfci»ft1 o rtrtrnin f»ftrl Vio^ ontrn cyamant* Coral announced her engagement to Neal. "I'll take you back, dear," Dr. Paul replied. "There is an officer there, Dr. Paul, " I said. "Will you either have him bring Chloe back to the house or, if you want him to stay longer, will you bring her back yourself?" He nodded and went into a huddle with Captain Lancy and Chief Forrest. I did not hear what they said, but as an officer was posted in the cottage that night I imagine that was the point under discussion, "Sally." It was Neal speaking at Recause of the war, however, it is not likely that exports this year will be anywhere near that figure. To put it mildly, all this gives rise to a real apple problem. What is to be done with the surplus? TJie only constructive answer for the industry as a whole is such a one as is presented by the Michigan Apple .institute—a plan to get people to eat more Michigan 'apples. It is an advertising and merchandising program to extend the market for apples, in exactly the same manner in which the now-enormous orange and grapefruit markets were developed. The first tenet in this plan is to make Michigan apples ,. ,. -t ,_. B _ a quality product in the eves of apple buyers—to make tho ' my slde - J had been so bus y watch, '••*•*•• " ino* .TftoorkVi T3ow«r «ritVi /"V\*«r»l fUn* wholesaler and ultimate consumer think of well-packed, well-flavored fruit when they think of Michigan apples. People cannot be "kidded" on such questions. Well- planned advertising can create a feeling of quality, but cannot maintain it unless the fruit itself backs up all statements made. So the real answer to an extendod apple market is a brand of fruit (hat is worth advertising. This ..year, for example, there is no excuse whatever for wormy, poor-quality fruit on the market. Where such inferior fruif does get on the market, it is merely restricting the further demand for that product. It is, in effect, cutting the throat of the very industry of which it is part. There is no simple solution to the apple problem. Put the best and .only solution at the moment is quality fruit backed by a .sound co-operative advei-tising and merchandising program to encourage more and wider uses for apples. • Change of Climate Benefit in Sinus- As Lancy nodded, Josie picked op the string of peaife and held them to the light. ing Joseph Barry with Coral that I had not seen him approach. "When Chloe comes in, will you ask her to make up the room next to yours in the wing. Coral ia moving Into the house." "I will." "And Sally." Josie's hand was on my arm, her eyes looking pleadingly into mine. "Will you move upstairs into my room with me? I want YOU." "I will." "And this time I forced a smile to my lips. After the trust By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. WHAT climates will prevent si- tUM disease? Now that winter is coming on, the question is important. There is no ideal climate where sinus disease does not exist. Any change in climate is likely to benefit a sinus sufferer, for a while. Thus, those who live in the mountains may do better for a while at the seashore, and the seashore dweller is Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. •improved by high altitude. Wherever there is plenty of ultra-violet j| < radiation is a good climate for sinus, and in children such radiation cleans up small residual infections. During the winter the best cli- .mate for the patient with sinus disease is a warm climate with moderate changes and a minimum amount of yainfall: desert regions — Ari- xdna, Texas, New Mexico or California. For the best results the change should be continued a long time.

Acne, the occurrence of disfiguring pimples on the face, is particularly a disease of young people at the age of puberty. It is doubly cruel in this respect because just when romance begins to blossom, the pimples also blossom. The causa of acne is not easy to state—many factors enter into the picture. The pimples occur usually at the site of the opening of the oil glands in the skin. The oil tube gets plugged, the secretions are dammed back and infection is then easily added. An oily condition of the skin, disturbance of the ductless glands at this' age period, perhaps errors in diet, all contribute to the production of acne. Success has .followed the use of pituitary, thyroid and other glandular extracts. POODS TO AVOID Ihe following foods are to be avoided: pork; all preserved, salted, canned, spiced meats and fish; crabs, lobster, shrimp, crawfish, salmon; veal, goose liver; hard- boiled eggs; fresh breads, hot biscuits, hot rolls, waffles, fritters; oatmeal; cheese; pastry, sweets, candy; fried meats, potatoes, breads; acid fruits and drinks; very hot or very cold dishes.

Lancys voice spoke briskly. "Is there a room I can have for priva** interviews ?" "Certainly, Captain Lancy. Miss Gordon will attend to it, and," Josie spoke half shyly, "I shall be very grateful if you will stay here in the .house until—everything is —settled." Her voice broke, stead- led itself and took on a deeper note. "Captain Lancy, I'm afraid." ( Just the one brief statement, but I'm sure it had more effect than if she had thrown a fit of hysteria Lancy's eyes shone with admiration as he regarded the slender | figure standing so quirtly before . him. Only her face, white and worn I and the terror lurking in her eyes' betrayed the strain she was enduring. "Thank you. I will be very glad, Indeed, to stay here, Miss Peake It will make my work much easier. But, as there will be officers on guard here, I am sure you need rear no further outrage." Josie's face did not lighten, though she gave him a grateful glance as she turned away. Then she stopped and came back to us Tin leaving everything to you Sally.

Then I wish ^to you and your brother "And Miss Gordon," Josie said er. rravely. "I wish her present at my nterviews." "That is agreeable to me, if it is your wish," Lancy returned. "We want to talk with Miss Gordon nyway." Josie went upstairs and I led the elective into Mrs. Peake's office. Is this suitable?" I asked. "It is Mrs. Peake's office, and I would esitate to put anyone else in ere; but I presume that you will wish to go over her papers. Am I ight?" ,"Yes. But remember, Miss Goron, to assure Miss Peake that we ire only interested in anything r hich pertains to the murder. Con- rary to general belief, the police, whether of state or town, do not ry curiously into private affairs." "Thank you. I will tell her; but your assurance was not necessary." As Lancy looked keenly at me, I said: "You see. Captain Lancy, your reputation is not unknown to my humble self." At that he smiled. "I hope what you have heard is the truth,"'he said mildly. . "I am sure It is," I returned. door. While Dr. turned with leaving him to speak to Chloe. who at that moment passed by the office Paul, who had re- Chloe, was closeted with the detective and Chief Forrest, Neal, Chloe and I moved my things upstairs to Josie's room and prepared two rooms in the same wing for Coral Easton and Captain Lancy. As we worked I svondered what she would say when she learned the- detective was in the next room. I may as well admit right here that I put him there deliberately. I was suspicious of Coral. Not to the extent of believing her guilty of Mrs. Peake's murder, but I distrusted her on general principles. When I look back and realize how far from the truth were my feeble intuitions or deductions or juct plain guesses, if you want to call them that, I am firmly determined never again to pass crack pot opinions on anyone. We had scarcly finished with our moving and bed making, when a trooper came into the wing to tell us Captain Lancy was waiting for us. Neal sent him to rap at Josie's door, while I went into the kitchen with Chloe. Before she and I were satisfied, every window and door was locked and bolted, if there was a bolt. That done, she went to bed, and I returned to the office, turning off the lighjs as I went. Captain Lancy, Chief Forrest, Neal and Josie were awaiting me. The latter, on a small wicker davenport, moved to one side and patted the cushion beside her as I entered. I had no sooner taken my place than the detective spoke. His voice was much gentler than it had been earlier in the evening. "Miss Peake, will you tell me what reason you have for believing that Miss Easton Is the one who ransacked your room?' Josi" stared at him in utter as opened it, and Neal, with white compressed "Now, Miss Peake?" Briefly Josie told of the state of icr room, or my offer to help her, and of my doing so while she sat and talked. "I went into the room tonight when I was looking for my mother." Her voiced faltered. "1 noticed something glittering on the loor. I picked it up and found— :his." She extended her hand. In t lay a silken thread on which were four opalescent beads. Lancy lifted the shining bit In his hand and looked at It. I craned my neck to see more dis- .inctly, and suddenly remembered he dress Coral had worn at dinner .he night I arrived. A billowing creamy chiffon bearing sprays of flowers formed of opalescent beads. There was something else, too, 1 almost remembered, or thought I did, for it nagged at me irritating- y as I listened to their conversation. "You think this Is hers?" "I know it is. She had the dress on at dinner last night, the night my room was ransacked." Lancy's face hardened. "Of course you understand, Miss Peake, that while she may have been the one who went through your room, she still may have had nothing to do with—what happened tonight." "I know that. And for Neal'i sake I hope she is innocent, but— t makes you wonder, doesn't it?" As Lancy nodded, she picked up .he string of glittering beads and held it to the light. At that Instant my evasive memory sprang to life. Be Continued) "*,«' ta '»«". Menus of the Day By MRS.

"How on earth do you know that I have a real reason?" she asked. "I am sure of that from the way you spoke, and as it is not always wise to allow a person suspected to know your reason for such suspicion, I stopped your conversation." Neal spoke gravely before Josie could reply. "Captain Lancy, I am sure Miss Easton has had nothing to do with any of the things which have happened here, and I cannot sit still and allow you to speak of her in such a slighting manner." The brief silence was electric with tension. Then Lancy replied sternly: "Dr. Peake, perhaps it will be better if you go out of the room • for a few moments, while I discuss I this matter with your sister. I have ! just this to say to you. I am here ! to find the person or persons who j killed your mother. 1 do not care I whojm he may be.
