Murphy, pioneer or chardist and one of the greates apple authorities in the Unite States, was found dead in th Carter orchard early Tnesda morning, lying peacefully a though fallen asleep among th apples he had done so much t establish as Iowa's crownin glory. Mr. Murphy had gone to th Carter orchard Monday even In and after visiting with Mr. Car ter, a life long friend, had gon out to pick up some apples. Mr Carter had gone with him ani after their return to the appl house Mr. Murphy decided to g, back and get some Delicious apples. Mr. Carter was called Jus then to supervise the loading ou of a truck load of apples and did not see him again and left shortl) for home, never thinking but tha he had gone also. Early nex morning some members of the Murphy family called Mr. Carter asking if Mr. Murphy had been there and saying that he had not returned home yet. Mr, Carter at once hurried out to the orchard and there found him lying beside a basket of apples he had picked. He had evidently sat down and Just passed away without a struggle as he was lying as though Just resting. Coroner Myers was summoned but decided an Inquest was unnecessary as death had evidently come from heart failure. Mr. Murphy had spent the greater part of bis life in Mills county and had done more to build up and develop the orchard industry than any other one man. He selected and showed apples from Mills county In practically every big horticultural show in the country and had probably won more premiums than any other. He brought great fame to Mills county apples. He died as he had lived much of his life among his beloved apples., geography. Questions and , $ -^Demonstration.

New Deal Much Talked About in National Capitol Congressman Wearin Tells of Recent Visit to Washington On my recent visit to Washington 1 found the Capitol still very much occupied with the New Deal. Everywhere In the city men and women gathered Jn little groups to talk about codes, jublic Works, the Tennessee Valey, and the new farm bill. So many new things have been undertaken by the energetic admln- stration since Its advent that no one can talk long about any one '.hlng. During my brief stay in the Rational Capitol I met my old Irlend who seems to be almost my relative, Congressman Edgar ioward of Nebraska. He has long ieen a National figure and Is today one of the most loved and respected members of the House. As I talked with him I recalled its recent letter to President Roosevelt urging and pleading with him to utilise the power ;ranted him by Congress to adopt a policy of controlled Inflation. "* «niled New Farm Holiday Started Saturday Leaders Hope to Withhold Products Until Price Comes Back With the declaration of a new strike by the National Farm Holiday association Saturday, farmer members again began to withhold their products from markets. The strike will be continued, declared leaders, until a fair price, representing cost of production, is obtained for farm products. The Mills County Holiday group has as yet taken no active part in the strike, nald Harvey H. Lisle, the county president, Tuesday, other than to urge members to follow the national plan. It Is expected that a membership move ment will be undertaken later and that an actlVa campaign to obtain Mr», W» J, Howard Died Saturday Morning Mrs. WyJ.

Time heals many things and some toes changes smiles of derision o smiles of admiration. Some of America's greatest statesmen ave not been appreciated until ong after they had left their vorks to other hands. That may ot be so with Washington's grand old man of the House, Congressman Howard of Nebraska. Secretary Ickes is one of the busiest men in the Capitol as he endeavors to direct the progress of public works. I waited in his long high celJlnged office while a number of Individuals, including the Secretary of War, preceded me on conferences following which I presented my own projects. A number of members of the House were in the Capitol attending to official business or chasing the illusive vision of patronage. The change Jn the date of the convening of Congress has caused considerable speculation as to when the membership of the two houses of Congress will arrive in the city to begin their winter's work. Many of them will probably spend the holiday season at home while a few will take" up their residence here prior to that time. »»,„* *£ pears fr °w m y observation that the regular session will be a memorable incident in the history of the Nation, Qtha D. Wearin, *- So1*r%t^weWW!nW>^^ ers report that no appreciable re-' suit of the strike has been'seen as movements to markets have been normal. In some sections of the state the strike has practically eliminated buying, as the buyers have agreed not to buy, producers not to sell and truckers not to haul. Efforts in this direction have not been made In this county, however.

This is one of the 1? plots In the state on which the Iowa State Cprn and Small Grain Growers association compare various varieties of open pollinated and hybrid strains of corn, Martin Weiss, senior in farm crops and soils at Iowa state col^ lege, a representative of the Jowa Corn and Small Grain Growers' association, and Claude Wilson, local cooperator, were in charge of harvesting the plot. Fifty-six entries were harvested which ranged in yield from 86 to 82 bushels. Kaoh entry wa« planted in five replications so as to give each one an equal chance- in allowing for difference in spij and mplBture in the plot. Maeb entry is known by num* ber only and the results of these yields will npt he given out until the annual ineetlng of the lows Corn and Snj«ll Grain Growers' association at Ames next winter. It was Interesting to note the difference in two different entries planted side by side. One with a good stiff stalk, large ears, and practically up barren stalks, and the entry beside it with over half barren atalks, which were diseased and proceed small, immature ears.

The services were started as ah experiment by the pastors of the local churches, four being planned for the test. The last of these will be held Sunday at the Baptist church with Rev. L. R. Bob- bltt preaching. Attendance at the services has been fairly good, the size of the audience showing a slight increase each week. The pastors of the churches wish to have the sentiment of their congregations on the matter, however, and plan to determine this Sunday. Dr. Henry D. White preached at the service last Sunday, on tho subject, "A Code for Christians." Special music was furnished by Miss May si 1 Barry who played a violin solo, accompanied by Miss Helen Jones.
