WEATHER CROP BULLETIN. For the week ending Sept. 29. 1912. The damp, cloudy and cold weather which prevailed during the third week of the month continued during the past seven days. Heavy to killing frosts were general, and freezing tem- peratures occurred in many localities on two or three mornings. Variable reports are received as to the dam- aging effect of the recent frosts on the late-planted corn, but the extent of injury will not he fully determin- ed until after the crop has been harvested. Probably 20 per cent of the crop was somewhat damaged, but as a whole, the crop is remarkably large and sound in view of the fact that the spring was laif. and at many times during the season the weather was ret considered to be favorable. Probably 80 to 85 per cent of thf total yield will be sound and mer- chantable, and the balance will pos sess much feeding value. That there was not more damage done by the frosts is due to the fact that over the larger part, if not all of the state, the weather became cloudy early in the morning after each frost and remained so during the day. The final reports for the seas- eon will show that Iowa has produc- ed one of the largest, if not the largest crops of corn and small garin in the history of the state. In fact, all crops have been good except ap- ples. The frequnt and wejl-distribut- ed showers have pat the ground in excellent condition for fall plowing, and considerable winter wheat was sown daring the past week. Pas- tares are in fine condition and stock is generally healthy except some hog cholera prevailing in the southwestern counties. GEO. M. CHAPPHL, Section Director. A Saturday's Des Moines report says: An epidemic of diphtheria, per- haps the most severe type of the disease which has ever come to the notice of Des Moines physicians, has broken out at Irving school at Tenth and Pleasant streets. To add to the seriousness of tie situation, al- most all of the cases have appear- ed in poverty-stricken families and are causing great suffering and pri- vation. Fourteen cases among the school children have been reported to the health department in fsw days. Four new cases were quaran- tined yesterday. It is probable that the epidemic resulted through the exposure of one case at the school, for almost all of the disease is con- fined to the territory surrounding Irving school. The health officers venture no opinion where the epi- demic will end The appearance of new cases daily lead them to be- lieve that tie worst situation they have had to battle with in recent years will develop before the dis- ease is checked. There are also a number of cases in Waterloo where the situation is about the same have occurred. and a few deaths Bankers' Life InstJranoe Company of Qes Mfclnes Busted.

The action was begun by Charles W. McLaughlin of Portland, Ind., who said he was acting in behalf of himself and 158.000 other members of the association, which does iusi- in more than half of the Unit ed States. McLaughlin charged conspiracy on the part of the officers and direct- ors of the defendant corporations to get control of the as- sets of the association, to divert the funds from their proper use and trust character and to deprive the plaintiffs of their interest therein without compensation- Fpnerr.en's Tournament.

The hallmark of the scholar is modesty, and Maurice Connolly is The feature of the Firemen's Tour nament was the four good games of base ball, two games each after noon at the Driving Park grounds and what made it most interesting for Greene people was that the home earn won all four games. Emmet Hanley captained the team and cer tainly used the best of judgement in selecting and placing his men Though not playing many games of ball this season. Walter Hanley caught all four games and was there with the big mit all the time. Ted rhorp held down first base and was 'there" every time and held ujt his 'eDntation as a batsman, and "shor- y" Earnist of Bennezette township was in tie game all the time on econd base. Jack Turner played a ;ood game in right field and Emmet Hanley covered left field in good hape. making the phenomenal catch f the series. Art Pagles was also there and played third base in his usual professional style. He also itchc-d tie game the last day with Rockford which was one of the clos est and most exciting.

Busby of Independence, Iowa, gives his follows: October wfll be a changeable month. Warm and cold althrough the month. October will have a good deal of rain but not as much as September. We will get one or two severe elec- trical storms in this antumn tinted month of October. October's torch is burning. The woods have chang- ed their garb of gteen for a somber red color, nature is like human life childhood and youth is the morning of life. Middle life is like the sun at noonday strong in the strength of- manhood. Old age is the winter of life like the sun going down. So It is with the season's death is like the naked woods. In four or five months they will have put on a new garb, and why not as we will be raised with a new body, and so on till time shall be no more. The planets, Jupiter and Mars, are evening stars, the giant Jupiter has been giving us plenty of rain through his influence with onr planet earth. Mars, the orange colored planet, is the direct cause of all the snicides, murders and accidents the world over'. This red colored planet, Mars, will be as near as he can get to our planet, earth in 191.5. Take it as a whole, October will not be so bad a month.

At Marshalltown Friday the Fred Deppe home, five miles south of the city on the Twelfth avenue road, was completely destroyed, and Miss Minnie Deppe, aged 20, was badly burned, when she poured kerosene on the kitchen atove fire to hasten the blaze, about this morning. The explosion that followed set fire to the young woman's dress, and hurled flames through the kitchen, which caught on flre while Mr. Deppe was rescuing tots daughter from being burned to death. Full of life and zeal, trained to the minute in the latest noveities, and expert in their maneuvers, the Dunbar Singing Orchestra more than fills the bill. In Des Moines the other day a farmer from near KnoxvUle lost in a poker game. He was met on the street by a capper who told him. confidentially, that he had jnst won from an old man who though he knew how to play poker, but who was just giving away his money, but as he was rich, it was all right, since it amcsed him. Thus led on the farmer bucke-i the old man and his pals. They let him win for a while and the farmer went out and got more of his money out of the bank. Before he got through he had tost aH of the money and he was walking the streets in a dazed con- dition. It gradually dawned on him that he had been fleeced and he com- plained to the police. That he a fool and an easy victim must be admitted, bat such men will continue to exist in the world. For Sale.
