crta's rejection of the American proposal
was a disappointment, officials were en
couraged by advices from Llnd that he
was conferring further with Huerta on
the suggestion. Discussion of alternative
measures was held in abeyance. The
proposal to grant exportatlons of arms
to tho constitutionalists on an equality
with Huerta cameto the front again.
Such was the situation following a
series of tclegramB from the embassy

of the note which constitutes the Huorta
reply to the American .proposal. Its pre-,
Uminary sections gave no hint of ulti
mate rejection, but were phrased in cour
teous terms. It set forth historically
the establishing of unofficial relations,
conversations with Foreign Minister Gam

Huerta and Llnd. In this note Huerta
referred to Llnd as a well Informed
man; animated by slncerest motives to
bring about a satisfactory solution of

Charge O'Shaughnessy cabled Becetary
Bryan from Mexico City today that Presi

Glmboa, emphatically denied there was
"any foundation whatever" for the state
ment that Huerta had Issued an ulti

recognition, with the alternative of hand

A dispatch from John Llnd Informed
President Wilson and Secretary Bryan
that he had been In conference with Pro
visional President Huerta at an early
hour today. He characterized his recep
tion and conference with Huerta as cor
dial. Last night's dispatches, attributing the
announcement by Minister Urrutla of an
ultimatum by Huorta, stirred offllcal cir
cles here deeply.
Secretary Bryan, an early riser, read
the morning papers and hurried down to
his office, where he found the reassuring
cable . from Charge O'Shaughnessy and
then went to the White House to confer
with' President Wilson. While there the
message came from Llnd telling of the
conference with Huerta.

LINCOLN, Aug. U.-Opeclal.) Ne
braska apples hava once more demon
strated their ability td cope successfully
with those of other states. Secretary
Marshall of the Southeastern Nebraska
Fruit Growers' association has olosed a
contract wth a Chicago nrm which will
take ail of tho apples grown by members
of the association this year.
According to Secretary Marshall, this
will be about three-fourths of the entire
apple' crop and wliu include the best or
chards of the state. The price to bo re
ceived will be about W per cent higher
than any previous year and the apple
will be sent to the Now York and Pitts
Mr. Williams, who made the deal for
the Chicago firm, says that Nebraska
apples will keep later In the spring than
any other apples ot a like kind grown
In the United States. All along tho Mis
souri river on tho Nebraska aide tho
aoll seems to be peculiarly adapted to
raising an apple which In flavor And
keeping ability exceeds that ot tlio
products ot any other state. It Is for
this reason, according to Mr. Williams,
that tho Nebraska apples are In such
demand and tho reason that eastern
firms are willing to pay tho high price
for the fruit. He has been buying ap
ples for fifteen years and thinks that
Nebraska stands far In the lead as a
producer of apples.
Apple orchards have not been hurt by
the extreme hot weather, according to
Mr. Marshall, where- they have been cul
tivated and sprayed.
Orchards which havo been allowed to
go through tho season with little or no
card will not develop much of n crop;
the apples already are drying up nnd
fklllng from the trees. In the orchards
wh'lch havo been cultivated the ground
seems to have retained tho moisture bet
ter and the fruit on tho trees which hQVe
been sprayed Is as perfect as In a rea
son where the rain has been plentiful.
Another strange condition which exists
In the face of the dry weather li that
fruit trees have put out a new growth
running from eight to fourteen Inches
more than In any previous year.
