diseases. Funeral services, conducted by
Rev. W. G. Hohanshelt, pastor of the

WEATHER FAVORS
GROWING CROPS
WARM DRY DAYS AND NIGHTS
BENEFICIAL TO HARVEST­
ING.
Des Moines, July 9.—For the, week
ending July 7, 1912:
The weather during the past seven
days was exceptionally favorable for
farming operations, and in moBt sec
tions for the growth of crops. The
average temperature was about 5 de
grees above the normal, and while the
rainfall was decidedly below the
average, many localities received
light to copious, and in a few seer
tions, moderately heavy showers. The
warm, dry weather, and the excessive
sunshine were very beneficial for hay
ing and harvesting. Much hay was put
up in the best condition the yield be
ing somewhat below the normal. Most
of the rye and winter wheat, and
many early oats are in shock in the
southern counties, and harvest has be
gun in central and northern sections.
All small grains give promise of good
to extra good yields, but late oats need
rain to fill to the best advantage. Con
siderable rust is reported, but prob
ably no more than usual. Corn con
tinued to make rapid growth, and half
of it is nearly up to the normal height
for this season of the year. Some of
the earliest planted fields in the ex
treme southeastern counties are begin
ing to tassel, while much of the late
planted corn is less than 12 inches
high. Pastures remain generally
good, but are beginning to dry up and
should have rain at once. Corn, pota
toes, late oats, fruit and garden truck
also need rain. Much of the timothy,
especially in the southern counties,
will be saved for the seed.
The following is a summary of re
ports from crop correspondents show
ing the estimated condition of staple
crops, July 1, 1912, as compared with
the average condition on that date in
past years: Corn, 89 per cent oats,
100 spring wheat, 95 winter wheat,
90 barley, 99 rye, 96 flax, 96 pota
toes 98 hay, 86 pastures, 95 per cent.
On July 1, 1911, the conditions were as
follows: Corn, 102 per cent oats, 72
spring wheat, 80 winter wheat 88
rye, 89 barley, 79 flax, 84 potatoes,
53 hay, 57 pastures, 60. The secre
tary, Iowa State Horticultural society
reports condition of fruit as follows:
Summer apples, 21 per cent fall ap
ples, 20 winter apples, 17 pears, 25
American plums, 77 cherries, 50 red
raspberries, 51 black raspberries, 65
blackberries, 40 grapes 69 currants,
70 gooseberries, 72 per cent of a full
crop.

Los Angeles, Cal., July 9.—By a
strange and romantic metamorphosis
Mrs. Elizabeth Murray Newman,a
charming young widow residing at a
local hotel, has become Miss Elizabeth
Murray Coffin and the heiress of mil
lions with which she is to conduct
many, philanthropic institutions in the
United States
One, and perhaps the
chief of which, is to be an industrial
farm and an agricultural college for
young women to be located in Iowa.
The peculiar manner in which this
rich transformation took place was
through the adoption of Mrs. Newman,
who is now Miss Coffin, by Lorenzo
S. Coffin, 89 years old, of Fort Dodge,
Iowa, one of the remarkable philan
thropists of the nineteenth and twen
tieth centuries.

Americans Win Heat?.
The fourth day of the athletic action
of the Olympic games began in dull
weather and with rain In prospect.
Several thousand enthusiasts assemb
led for the principal event of the morn
ing, which was t^e decision of the
first three trial heats of the 5,000
meters flat race.
Americans were well represented on
the spectators' benches in the stadium
and had the satisfaction of seeing two
of their men run away with two first
places.
George V. Bonrague of the Irish
American A. C. gave a fine exhibition
in the first heat. Louis Scott of the
South Paterson Y. M. C. A. took the
second heat by hard work. Garnet
Wyckolf, university of Ohio, was the
only representative of the United
States in the third heat and he was
unable to finish.
Wrestling proceeded simultaneously
with the running, but slow headway
was made with that part of the pro
gram. The list of competitors runs
into the hundreds and in some quarters
it is said that bouts will not be finish
ed until it is time to begin again at
the Olympic games to be held In 1916.
The principal events to be decided
this afternoon include the finals of
the javelin throwing and the 400
meters relay race, two more trial h^ata
in \the 5,000 meters flat race and, if
time permit^, all the trial heats of the
1,500 meters flat race, for which there
is a big field.
