The letter below glvea na a hint ol what Rev. John Meeker, formet minister here, is doing and of the warm spot he holds in his heart for American Fork and Utah. October 1, 1925 Herrin, 111. Alpine Publishing Company: I am entering my third year.wlth my busy church at Herrin. The great revival here a few weeks ago attracted wide attention. Last Mon day the Chicago Church Federation had me address hundreds of min isters at the great Methodist Temple to tell them how God came to Her rin. We had a great tabernacle here in June and July where crowds up to fou thousand and more listened to Howard S. Williams, a former newspaperman. . Our daughter Mildred is a Senior in the High School, and Ben is first year High. Ben gets homesick fos Utah. The" little girls, Ma,ry and Ruth, are in school and growing fast. With our Dodge Sedan we had a great August vacation three hundred miles north of Chicago on Lake Michigan. Although wie have been away from American Fork nearly four years we feel that our seven years, residence there made us feel . wonderfully at home among its people and Its wonderful won-derful scenery. If it were not so far Mrs. Meeker and I and the family would certainly enjoy a vacation trip to the well known "Stakes of Zkra", Hearty greetings to all. John Meeker 0 . History Of William Armstrong Following is a life sketch of William Armstrong, early pioneer, read, by Mrs. Thomas Coddlngton at the Daughters of the Pioneers meeting meet-ing last week. William Armstrong was born Jan. 6, 1805, In Glasco, Scotland and was the eldest son of William Armstrong, third grandson of Johnle Armstrong, who was one of the swords men of the Queen of Scottland guardsmen. He started to work when quite young as a glass blower later learning learn-ing to be Chemical manufactor, which profession, along with soap making, he followed while in Scotland. When young he married but the following year there came a little baby girl to their home that cost the life of both mother and baby. He remained single a number of years. .Ho began to feel uneasy and decided to go to Engla-mt.-v? Aftr-binr-thrrr whort time and being interested in the chemical part of the factories he meet Catherine Cradoek; who IwtiB one of the spiners there. Thoir friendship grew untill finely on' Oct. 22, 1838, they were' married, Catherine Craddack was born at Old (Continued on page 4) Agriculture has been fairly profitable profita-ble this year and the improved pur chasing power of farmers will do much" to uphold general economic well-being through the winter, the United 8tatet Department of Agricul ture declare in Its October report on the agricultural aituation. The department de-partment points out, however, -that while conservative Judgement of the recovery of agriculture fs warranted, farm prosperity can be as easily overrated over-rated as depression. It Is a splendid harvest," the de partment says. "Not bumper yields but production well adjusted to reasonable needs. The two great money crops, cotton and wheat, are now along where some idea can be gained of their value. Cotton ap parently stands to bring Its producers produc-ers an income of approximately SI, 500.000,0000, which is about like last year, and wheat producers apparent ly stand to receive about $1,000,000,-000, $1,000,000,-000, which is also near or slightly below be-low last year. v "These 1 wo leadingTcropa probably index the general crop income. Agricultural Agri-cultural income will not be greatly in excess of last year, but the point fa that this is the second fairly profitable pro-fitable year. The season "will go a long way to level up regional conditions. condi-tions. The Corn Belt along with the dairy and diversified East have been slow to feel the. stimulating current of revival, but now the rising prices of hogs and cattle, together with a reasonably good corn crop means some profit in the Corn Belt The slowly strengthening prices for dairy products" plua "highef 'potatoea and minor cash crops promise somewhat better Income for the -East The whole agricultural map thus slowly emerges from economic shadow." Discussing the situation by key regions, the department says: !"The East is busy with sU flUing, potato digging, fruit harvest and fall work generally. Potato yields are disappointing. Corn, growth Is ex cellent, helped by late rains. , Beans, buckwheat and other crops in harvest were damaged by heavy rains in the north. Winter-grain is mostly seed ed. The Dairy situation is rather static but Improves rather than otherwise. The South in generally under the ban of dry weather. Drought and heat have been a real catastrophe in northern Georgia and portions of the Carolina. The whole Piedmont re gion is hard hit The cotton crop; is spotted but generally fairly good. Picking is well along and ginning has been heavy. Feed crops have been shortened by dry weather. General conditions are fairly good except in drought areas. "The Corn Belt has the corn" har vest well along with the crop matured matur-ed safely ahead of frost There Is some chaffy corn in areas hit by dry weather but the bulk of the crop Is apparently good grain. The region is busy with the late harvest and fall work. Winter grain has been planted under favorable conditions. The hog aad',calLU3ttaatJo 'favor optimism. 1 5 "The Wheat Belt has winter wheat seeding about finished. Local esti mates of acreage vary but general Indications are of some increase over last fall. Spring wheat yield are only fair but grain is excellent quality quali-ty and prices are stimulating. Threshing Thresh-ing is practically finished. The general gene-ral 'result of the season Is favorable to the region as a whole. "The Range Country has the cattle and sheep movement to market well along. Stock is moving down from the high range to winter pastures. There is a heavy demand for ewes. Many ewe lambs are being held back on range and many old ewes shipped to farm flocks for breeders. Some cattlemen are stocking up where resources re-sources are favorable, and the whole region is improving in tone; "On the Pacific Coast the apple and grape harvests are well along. Prunes are picked. Grain is mostly threshed. Fall seeding is about finish w! IrrthtriioTth; thmrslr Hindemi by dry weather., the same is true of winter tracks in the south. Cotton is being picked In the Bouth. Rlce( and citrus fruit. ajede.vclOp'lng well. The general sentiment is moderately optimistic." The department's Index of the relative re-lative purchasing power of 30 farm products la placed at 93 tor August compared with 91 In July, the five year 1909-14 everage of 100 being used as a base. Firemen To Buy ' ; ' New Electric Siren American Fork Is to have a new electric lire siren. It. isn't ordered " yet and . the city: hasn't appropriated money to get It but the firemen have decided we are going to have one and when they decide de-cide It's a certainty.- ; .. The type of siren selected will cost i;00.00 and Is to be placed on the City Hall or new fire Station, It will be electrically driven and controlled from the telephone office. With this siren any fire alarm going into central is Instantly flashed to the firemen and citizens by pressing a button, .
