GREENS WALLOP WARSAW IN TWO BATTLER ROYAL Specials Pl?y Good Ball But Fail To Stop Mr. Oswalt & Company. ' ' :- ---- -- - - i The Warsaw Specials, playing a high class brand of the national pastime, tiied to win a couple of ball jrames from our Greens Friday and Sunday, but they missed connection?. The 'Bremen crew came from behind to tie the score in a battle of thrills on the Focrth, sending the game into overtime sessions that ended when Claty HutT trotted home with the v i r r i r c run in the eleventh frame, taking the contest by 4 to S. The Sunday srame at Warsaw was just as v '- but not so close, J. Oswalt Sr Co. copping by 6 to 1.

Bremen scored in the first inning when Sheehan strolled, swiped second and came in on Brittons single. That was the end of the Green counting until the eighth. In the meantime the Specials had gore ahead in the fifth, when two singles and a double were bunched for two runs. Two Warsaw hits and an error by Wertz pave the visitors another in the eighth, and put them two to the pood. It was in this session, with two on and nobody down, that Oswalt was called on to relieve the weakening Winters. The Greens came back in the last of the eighth and started things. Oswalt flammed a hot one to Ulery and was safe when Bill booted it. Sheehan was out on a fly to left. Wertz singled and Touhey sent a drive to left that got through Burt. Britten's two ply whack scored Oswalt and Wertz, but the rally ended when Huif and Hall were both tossed out by Hamilton. That was all the scoring until the eleventh, when Huff opened the home half with a single, went to second on Hall's sacrifice and came in when Ulery overthrew first base after Phi-lion's grounder.

Zimmerman and Manual Families Hold Reunion About 'JT5 members of the Zimmerman-Manual family met in the annual reunion of the relationship at Lake of the Woods Sunday. Melvin Hat .man was elected president of the organization and B. H. Polen secretary. John W. Davis Named For President, With Gov. Bryan As Mate. Burying its bitter differences in a mighty landslide of votes after 102 futile ballots had been taken, the democratic national convention yesterday afternoon nominated John W. Davis of West Virginia for president of the United States. .Mr. Davis had received the necessary two-thirds of the votes 'cast on the 103rd ballot, when Thomas Tag-gart of Indiana rose on his chair and moved that the nomination be made unanimous by acclamation. A storm of "ayes" ended the long battle. Gov. Charles W. Bryan of Nebraska, a brother of William Jennings Bryan, was named as his running mate at the closing session of the convention last night. His nomination came in a stampede on the first ballot. This was after a conference of leaders in which Mr. Davis participated. As the roll was called many states passed to see which way the wind was blowing. When Bryan's strength became apparent, there was rush to his support.' He reached a total of 734 votes, more than the necessary two-thirds, at about 2.20 oclock. By 2.30 this morning the convention was over. Bryan was decided upon as the choice of the leaders after Senator Walsh of Montana and E. T. Meredith of Iowa had refused the place. Others considered were Berry, Owsley and Greenway. Mr. Davis has been before the public eye as ambassador to Great Britain. He is one of the country's most eminent lawyers and is a past president of the American Bar Association. He is at present counsel for J. P. Morgan and other interests. The nomination of Davis had been objected to by William Jennings Bryan on the convention floor because, according to the Commoner", there would be no choice between Coolidge and Davis. Both men represent the same economic ideas and both are of the conservative school, Mr. Bryan says. Two Men Killed In Bourbon Crossing Smash Two lives were claimed as the toll of . a crossing accident in Bourbon last Thursday, when a Ford truck driven by David Sponseller of Wana-tah was struck by a Pennsylvania train at the second crossing west of the Bourbon depot. The other victim was Willard Weirick of near Warsaw. Sponseller died on the way to Plymouth, where the two men were rushed after the accident. Weirick lived until Friday. The two men were on their way to Plymouth from Wei rick's home and appear to have driven on the tracks without seeing that there was a crossing there. Bremen Preacher Will Deliver Memorial Address Kev. A. E. Knepp, pastor of Grace United Brethren church of Bremen, has been selected to deliver the memorial address at the closing session of the annual conference of the denomination, on Sept. 14.

But the youngsters came back smiling this morning and put on their parade through the streets. IMore than a hundred kids of all sizes and denominations, dressed in as many different sorts of costumes as there were kids, paraded in the glad affair. Bizarre clothes and decorations, with wagons, bicycles, scooters and buggies, made the parade an interesting and colorful spectacle. The first session of the Chautaujua was held in the gymnasium last evening and was well attended. Leake's orchestral enterainers pleased the crowd with their program of music and opened what promises to be an excellent course of entertainments. This afternoon the Mordelia trio gave a musical program. A feature of the 'ay was the presentation of a tiny harmonica to every child present. The same trio will play the musical prelude of tonight's session, after which Capt. Kilroy Harris will give his lecture on "Through Unknown Australia." Tomorrow the MacMurray-Kackley Players will be here and during the afternoon will give a popular entertainment preceding a lecture, "The Confessions of a Lunkhead," by Arthur MacMurray.

Saturday's programs will be featured by Alexius Baas, baritone, and Waldemar Geltch, violinist. Dr. Y. Minakuchi will give a lecture on Japan at the evening session. The assembly will close Sunday with progi-ams afternoon and evening by the Black and White male chorus, , World Famed Pianist Is Coming To Winona The Winona Assembly management announces that it has never been more fortunate than it has been in securing Vladimir De Tachman, the most wonderful piano player of Chopin music in the world today, for the evening of July 18. Now that he is to be in this country once more, avowedly for the last time, music loving Americans will take advantage of the opportunity to hear this most unique of ail piano recital-ists. It is more than twelve years since his last visit to America. He is in his seventy-fifth year and has had personal acquaintance with many of the great masters of yesterday. It is his seventh visit to those shores in a period of thirty-three years. His career, however, as concert pianist lefore the public, numbers no less than fifty-four seasons. He comes before a new generation of concert-goers because he is convinced that this tour is a solemn duty. He must, in his own words, "disclose to America th last word in piano playing." Music lovers in this section are planning to hear him on the evening of July 18, at Winona Lake, Indiana. His recital will be given in the Billy Sunday Tabernacle, a building seating eight thousand.
