She was the only daughter of George C and Elizabeth Chapin and wai one of a family of three children Her girlhood was spent in Hastings with the exception o two years spent In Clayville, N. Y After her marriage she lived near Hastings until twelve years ago when they moved to their present home north of Malvern. She was united in marriage to Hosmer G, Parker Aug. 8, 1908. To this union was born five children, two of whom, Bernice and Kenneth, preceded their mother In death. A few months ago her health began to tail and since that time it has steadily declined. A few days ago her condition grew more serious and on Saturday morning, Feb. 3, she passed into that sleep from which there Is no awakening, having lived fifty years, one month, and one day. Her attachment to her home and her sacrifice for the comfort and welfare of her family was veyy, noticeable. In announcing his candidacy Wearln stated that he hoped his party wfciild see flt to reward him with the customary opportunity to run for a second term. He wen m to say that In the few months, le has been in Washington he las made acqualntanceB and con- acts that make It possible to render better service to hlB constituents. "Every day I am here," he said, "I learn something about the Intricate departments that aids me In serving the people," "I have," he stated, "endeavored to give the public an efficient administration and will continue such efforts if I am renom- Inated and re-elected." "My duties In Washington, should Congress continue in «es- sion until June, will probably prevent me from conducting anything like a strenuous campaign. My success at tho polls will have to be left largely in the hands of my friends and I am certain they will do the best they can tor me," ; ^l^1^T®kl^S^fe*rl««W Capacity crowd* flocked to the Community btilldlnj: last Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nlghU to see the county's basketball teams ulase a series ot unusually close basketball games In the Mills county tournament. On Saturday nlisht Henderson returned homo with the championship trophy, T'acinc Junction, the former champions, took home the second place trophy. Silver City and Strnhan took basketballs home, awarded for their respective third and fourth places. Only the trophy for the consolation rounds stayed In Malvern, won by Mnlvern high school. The account of tho Ramon In the order of their playing follows: (liy Donald Mllllknn) Silver City Wins Tilt with Emerson In the first minute of play the Sliver City quintet ran up a score of five points while the Emerson cagers had to be satisfied with a paltry tally of one. After the Inl- lal nervousness had worn oft Smerson settled down to the task n band and played straight basketball. Both teams were overanxious to score with the result that much of the time was spent In chasing fumbled balls. At the quarter the score was tied at .12 Emerson opened the second quarter with a field goal right off tho bat. Officials Hyan and Baldwin had a bard time of it keeping an eagle eye on the players in order to keep the foul average down. A capacity crowd filled the Community building and made BO much nolsa that at times the ret- eree'a whistle could not bo heard above the din. Silver City soon came out of their momentary slump and carried the fray ielr» , to have served my country during these strenuous times and ar even greater satisfaction to fee that I have been able to play a small part in formulating the recovery program that has so definitely Improved conditions.

The end of the third quarter saw the City etlll in the lead with a 31 to 22 tally. The last quarter Silver City had a hard time preventing the Emerson boys from scoring. The Emerson teammates started the fourth quarter with blood in their eyes, so to speak. In the last two minutes of play, with the score 33 to 34 in favor of Silver City .he opposing players opened a burst of speed that they had failed to show earlier in the evening. Emerson made a lucky shot ihat put them Jn the lead for perhaps a halt minute. This seemed to make the Silver City boys fight all the harder and a free throw and a basket put them decisively in the lead. When the last counter was made the galleries went absolutely wild. As the final gun sounded Silver City was In the lead with 37 points while Emerson trailed with 35, The outstanding players of the Silver City team were Klgglns and '0. Boult.
