(Bar United Press SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8. James Singleton went on trial today charged with a murder which for a time prov ed one of the most baffling the police had been called upon to untangle. On the night of July 27th his wife, Elizabeth Singleton, was found dead in her appartmcnt. At first it was be lieved she had died from an acute at tack of illness. An autopsy revealed signs of poisoning and the police im mediately advanced a suicide theory. Friends and relatives of Mrs. Single ton, however, would not admit she had ended her own life and there was a fur ther investigation -which revealed that she had been in apparently good spirits and was preparing to attend a theater just before her death. Chemists at last analyzed a Iwittlc of headache powders from which Mrs. Singleton had taken a dose, and found it contained strychnine. Tracing the origin of the bottle they found it had been given to Mrs. Single ton by James Singleton ,her husband, and he was placed under arrest. A few days later he made a statement which will figure in the trial as an al leged confession that lie placed the poison in the headache powders first intending to take some himself. PHILADELPHIA SHORT OVER 30,000 HOUSES By United Press PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8. Munici pal authorities here were considering a number of plans to relieve the housing shortage which is becoming aggravat ed by the unprecedented influx of immi grants. One plan would provide for construction of houses by the city, with municipal supervision. A canvass of the foreign sections showed that in nearly all cases houses built to roof one family were occupied by two and sometimes three families. This is a detriment to the health and welfare of the community, according to Dr. Furbush of the health department here. Kxperts figure that Philadelphia is short today 30,000 six-room houses, bt.ilders claim that due to the high cost of materials and lalor, more than $160 000,000 would be required to builH the t timber of houses needed. Six thous and dollars is the average cost to on truct a six-rooms house, according t- contractors. During the first nine months of 1920, only 1.170 permits to l-tiild homes were issued, as against ?,503 for 1915, and 7,758 ior 1016. " RAIL CARRIERS APPEAL TO t Bv United Press! rETALUMA, Nov. 8.

No action on the parole had been tak en up to the noon recess. A number of other applications are The public service commission has received word from the Interstate Com merce commission that the rail carriers have appealed the denial of a raise of rates in freights and fares as made by the Nevada commission. The carriers ask that the decision of' the Nevada commission be set aside and that the proposed rates as set up by the roads be allowed. The property valuations and the advanced rates both in freights and farts are asked to be set aside substituting the federal order as originally made. The roads further contend that the federal order is super ior and eliminates action by state com missions. Chairman Shaughnessv stat.es that this simply puts the state of Nevada on trial before the Interstate Commerce commission. He contends that the Ne vada commission is not the only de fendant to the hearing, but the entire state, as should the commission be de clared without power to regulate intra state business it leave the shippers and people without appeal from any order emulating' from the federal commission. A date of hearing will le fixed by the Interstate commission when Ne vada will have to be represented or lose what advantages she has so far gained. oo cars caught fire and a warehouse suf fered a large loss. A mcssboy is re ported missing, though the crew leaped to safety by jumping overboard. The origin of the fire is unknown. The Gold is the third steamer of the com pany to be destroyed.

The milking operation occupies about one half the time that was necessary under hand milking and it is a certainty it is far more sanitary. The concrete barn, which is as clean as a modern kitchen, is equipped with every convenience, steel stanchions and water flushed drainage, resulting in as complete an arrangement as can be found anywhere in Nevada. 1 The installation of milking machines came after investigation, and while this section has been slow to adopt modern dairy equipment the success of the ma. LADY FARMER Mrs. Julia K. Howard of Sacramento has undertaken the development of some land in the section northeast of J unjro, having made a filing todn. Mrs. Howard is an elderly lady who has made a succuss in California and now desires to continue active in the development of a virgin country. If she is successful in developing su?. ficient water for irrigation she will lose den or lawn. In practically all sections where at tention is paid to enrichment of soils the leaves are acumulattd and allowed to rot and then applied to the ground, in this particular section they are relig iously burned, thus depriving the ground from the returns that nature planned. No one wants to be his brother's keeper, but there are lots of lawn and gardens that would respond more abun dantly if given a chance with the cov ering from the leaves and twigs which are so abundently spread for protec tion.
