UP)-- Agranularcytosis, a rare disease, has caused the death of John F. Thcrme, 14, of Keosauqua. He had been a student in the school for the deaf at Council Bluffs for several years and was sent home after he apparently was recovering from the ailment. He suffered a relapse and was brought to a hospital here. The cause of the disease which starts in the throat and destroys blood is unknown. Correct this sentence: "Now that I am at the top," said the man, "I shall never forget who helped me on the way." -- Dubuijue Telegraph- Herald. Local Woman Raises Plant* of Tropics as Hobby; Talks to Women. Orchid plants are abundant in the tropical Americas, where deadly snakes and insects guard them, according to Mrs. Herbert N. Brendel, 1025 East State street, but are more or less rare in Iowa. She has cultivated one in h«r own kitchen and it is blooming for the first time this year. The plant stands about two feet high, is composed of one half dozen or more long grass-like leaves of light green color and grows with its roots partly above ground. Only on« of the leaves is blossoming. The blossoms are from two to three inches across when open. They last only a day and disappear. A slip of the plant was given to Mrs. Brendel four years ago as a wedding gift by a minister's wife at Kanawha. The plants seldom bloom before they are five years of age, but two weeks ago last Wednesday the first blossom came on this one. A week ago Wednesday two blossoms appeared and last Thursday four blossoms appeared. Flowers Disappear. The blossom opens about S o'clock in the morning, remains open until nearly dusk and then closes in a cup-like shape. By the next morning the flower has disappeared and Mrs. Brendel could not say whether it evaporates or merely falls apart into such tiny particles that it cannot be seen. The blossom Itself consists of three petals of light lemon color which encase three petals of orchid when the flower Is closed. The petals turn back when the flower is open, with the petals alternating in color and appearing like a cross between an Iris, Lady Slipper and Daffodil. Snakes Fascinated. A small stem is found in the center of the flower, which is covered with the pollen, and which inciden- ially in the natural state Is spread jy snakes and insects that guard the plants. The chief reason that wild orchids arc dangerous to gather is that they are protected by this animal life which the plants fascinate. The stem of the flower grows up through the center of the leaf and can be seen as though it were a keleton structure before the x-ray. The stem protudes from the topmost point of the leaf and corresponds to the slips of other plants which are usually found on the roots underground. The blossoms appear on these slips. Seed from the flower, which is found on the tiny stem within the petals of the blossom, is so fine it cannot be seen and must be dusted on to moss to be cultivated. Mrs. Erendel stated that the crossing of species, which produces rare specimens, is accomplished through dusting the seed of different varieties on moss. Plants Not Parasites. Although the plants were formerly thought to be parasites, according to Mrs. Brendel, it was found they thrive on moss. They can also be cultivated in loose loam, although the roots seek the air and and tb-2 plant stands always partly above the dirt. Thursday when the four blossoms appeared on the plant, Mrs. Brendel led a general discussion on orchids before women of Mrs. Pearl Gable's division of the Ladies Aid of the First Baptist church. Each of the women brought pennies which were to be added to the mile of pennies the organization is raising and which will amount to $844.80. The orchids have earned $4.50 so far. Mrs. Brendel said she believed the plant would continue to blossom each week.

EMMETSBURG AUTO WRECKED SECOND TIME BY ACCIDENT EMMETSBUAG, Marcli 12.--Dan Sibi-el,' Emmetsburg, knew Sunday how fast his heavy sedan could go. Last November, it showed excellent speed possibilities, and might mvc outdistanced pursuing Palo Alto county officers, only that it nopportunely upset at a curve south of Emmetsburg, badly smash- ng the car, and--what's more, 20 cases of whisky, officers said. 'One hundred twenty-five dollars and costs," said the judge. Saturday morning Mr. Sibrel paid a ?300 repair bill on the renovated car and set forth in it, accompanied by C. R. Morgeson, local jarage man. The car performed admirably, going 75 miles an hour around a curve west of Emmetsburg, on Highway 18, and then, showing even .greater speed, it hurtled through Lhe air and overturned Uiree times. Three times and out went its oc- jupants through the top, neither hurt seriously. Saturday evening, the car again reposed in a garage, minus doors, two wheels and a top. Repairs will cost $300, garage men said. The car has speed, Sibrel said. HEINSELMAN IS CREAMERY HEAG Report on Plymouth Co-Of Indicated Past Year to Hare Been Good.

JAFfFP " (· *v*. · Irving Jaffee.OlympicSpeed Skating Champion, says: "It takes healthy nerves and plenty of wind to be an Olympic skating champion. I find that Camels, because of their costlier tobaccos, are mild and likable in taste. And, what is even more important to a champion athlete, they never upset the nerves," John W. Grout, Office Manager, who hails from Detroit, Mich., soys: "I can see how an Olympic champion speed skater needs healthy nerves, but just let me say something here that is also true --aman can't handle a tough office job without healthy nerves, either. Many hours of nagging details and the pressure of a heavy load of work tell on the nerves, if they are inclined to be 'jumpy.' I smoke Camels steadily...all day long...and I never even have to think of nerves. As for taste-Camels have the finest flavor I have ever known." Met How Are YOUR Nerves? Sooner or later today most of us 5 come face to face with jangled nerves. If nerves are a problem with you, now is the time to check up on all habits that may affect them -- your eating, your sleeping, your recreation. And get a fresh slant on your smoking by trying Camels. Much is heard about tobacco quality, so always remember this: Camels are made from finer, MORE EXPENSIVE TOBACCOS than any other popular brand. Note the way "edgy" nerves become a thing of the past. You can smoke more than ever, without a sign of "cigaretty" aftertaste. You'll be delighted to find that Camel's costlier tobaccos do make a difference--to your taste, and to your nerves!
