Lightning Strike* Twice in Malvern in Thursday Storm .Two Transformer* Broken s Rain Bring* Relief to Dry Earth Lightning, which enjoys tbe reputation of never striking twice in the same spot, flashed twice in Malvern Thursday evening during the month's heaviest rain storm. With reverberations which sent nearby citizens rolling from their beds, lightning struck a transformer on a pole just south of'the Fred Farquhar home am another near the residence of Dr W. M. Hiett. Both transformers were broken and interrupted electric service in the areas affected. Workmen from the Iowa-Nebraska Light and Power company repaired the damage temporarily shortly after the crashes. During the night some .86 inch of rain fell which was so rapidly soaked tip by the thirsty earth that but little trace of it was noticed the next morning.

A tube of rubber is made first — and no ordinary rubber is used-—and around this must be placed fabric jackets to furnish strength and durability. So difficult is it to make fire hose — and to sell It—that purchasers must be charged from 40c to $1.25 per foot, depending partly upon the merits ot the hose and partly upon the bargaining skill of the buyer. Although they are in need of some 600 or more feet ot hose the council deterred buying until more thorough information about the product could be obtained. Chief F. R. Chantry and L. A. Talbott of the fire department, met with the council to bear the hose salesmen, Also before' tbe council was a from County Seat in County f reasflfier otto Jodklns and Deputy Batcher were two busy men the hut three days of Jane, receiving atfd receipting for all the tase* paltf in during that period.

BUY Bnbscrtbers to the hometown paper buy frott 12 to 21 frer eefct more merchandise from local stores than do non- ftntmcribefs, according to a survey of the school of journalism of the University of Southern California. Of the people in neighborhood rural or smaller communities, subscribers buy from advertisers from 9 to 35 per cent more merchandise than non- subscribers. This holds good, regardless of spending power. The investigators are convinced that retail business in the smaller communities would be 20 to 26 per cent below its present level without the push given it by newspaper advertising. — National Editors Association Bulletin. Fulkenon Tragedy Has Good Ending Malvern Recluse Attempt* Suicide; Despondent Over Finance* Luke Fulkerson, well known in Malvern and vicinity for a num her of years past, attempted to take his own life last Sunday while In a fit of despondency. Mr. Fulkerson, known to many as "Rosle" when he traveled this territory for the National Refln ing company selling White Rose gasoline, came to Malvern a few years ago when he retired from the road. He was associated at different times with the Galllher and Piper garages and a few years ago operated the Malvern Tire shop, at first in partnership and later alone, but this did not prove a paying venture. Since his retirement from the Malvern Tire shop he has maintained a small stock of auto accessories in his rooms, selling enough only to eke a minute wage upon which he lived. And this, with Depression, has slowly decreased. Taciturn, but not unfriendly, Mr. Fulkerson had grown despondent over his sltua- cally wltbout food, he planned desperate * measures. He called 2arl Hertz on the phone to meet him in his rooms on some business, Then he went out and paid, with probably his last dime, a mall bill. When Hertz reached his cham- iers he found "Rosle" lying on a ouch, a small paper knife pro- ruding from his side. He had plunged the blade twice into his abdomen near the heart but failed to reach the mark. Hertz quickly called medical aid and an ambulance and they took tbe wounded man to Edmundson hospital in Council Bluffs where his condition was considered not critical. Meanwhile one C, H, Sprague of Omaha made inquiry for Mr, Ful- Combine* Start Big Annual Harvest of Wheat in County Golden Gfaia of High QuaU itf Thi* Yeafj Good Yield* Reported Dry, hot early summers pins the rich Marshall stlt soil which makes up the larger portion of Mills county are factors which produce good wheat. During the first part ot this week the raucous whir and choking dost of Combines could be found on the county's wheat fields as farmers began their annual harvest ot the golden grain. And comparatively like gold is the crop this year, for good yields and good quality are reported. Even the price, compared with the lows of the past year, Is decidedly encouraging to an Industry sorely suffering from etces- stvely low prices. Into Malvern early Monday morning drove John Wilson of near Henderson with a truck ot the cereal, taking It to the Malvern Milling company where a price ot 8?c was paid. The wheat tested 63 pounds, graded No. 1 hard, and gave the Wilson's a yield of 30 bushels an acre. The large combine ot the Robbins brothers started to cut Wide swaths across their broad field east of Malvern the first ot the week and a heavy yield was recorded there. Harvesters could be seen alt over the county as their grain ripened. The larger part ot the grain Is being cut by combines this season, although a few threshing outfits will be used. Several of the fields have been cut and the bundles shocked. Although this county is not a heavy wheat producer, the grain will make a profitable crop this year as good yields and high , quality is evident generally. More over unfavorable advice from the main wheat areas have given the cereal a bullish following in grain markets and the price has been fairly good.

Ho had been an appren Correspondent Says World's Fair Highly Interesting (Special to The Leader) Beacon City (Matteson) Illinois, July 6,—Along last fall there were rumors afloat that there wouldn't be any World's Fair in 1933. Nobody could at ten, It was predicted, because of the depression. You remember hearing such comments, don't you? Mill'Miff '^"•mvSfilfr •etWa by tr»4.

The first fifteen days of tbe fair has seen over a million, paid admittances T-T more thea three times the number during the first fifteen days of tbe World's Fair of 1885, Last week tbe big loop hotels of Qbtasgo were reported, filled, travel Bu» reau bustaess was. boasted 190%.

It's fun to watch them. It's almost unbelievable tbe things they do and say. One guide told US that he was approached by a very much confused lady who wanted to leave 180 wttb him. She was afraid o pick-pockets. He was a perfect stranger, but be evidently looked honest. He politely declined the respoaslblUty. Because of all this confusion tbe bigness of Chicago, and the diStcuUies of eity travel. Beacon City has proved during its open- lag weeks tbat it has a genuine service to perform. Beacon City, you know, Is located OWt bere on the South Side Of Chicago, beyond the confusion area. We are living In a beautiful countryside, on tbe Indian Wood Golf aad Country club grounds.

The Indian Wood elghteen-hole golf course invites the golf fan, and if you've forgotten yoijr clubs, a set may be rented at a nominal fee. Last week a special dance and card party was held at the club house for Beacoa members, So successful was tbe occasion that it will probably become § weekly feature.
