THE BREMEN ENQUIRER, THURSDAY, JULY 17, : acres was reduced to nothing, unless the heart can sustain the damage and the Solomon store from the K. of P. hallway was opened by cutting a hole in the wooden panel large enough EIGHBORHOOD NEWS NOTES DR.

As matters developed, however, the odds were rather against the road sleuth. Mr. Reed had not driven the car but had it hauled in from the farm for repairs and had his new license plates, Nappanee Advance-News, Bourbon News-Mirror, Culver Citizen, Milford Mail, Argos Reflector. would probably be hoarse for two days, and might seriously, perhaps permanently, injure his vocal chords. Yet a tender infant, with a throat as soft as water, can yell all night fortissimo and not only do himself no injury, but in the morning be fresh as a fox hound, and not only be able, but quite willing, even eager, to continue. What is the secret of the baby's voice production? It seems to be a matter worth serious investigation. In emission of tone the infant unconsciously has a system that imakes the Italian appear crude. If singing masters could discover what it is, and teach it, all present methods of vocal study would be revolutionized. William Lyon Phelps in Scribner's Maga zine. R. H. DRAPER. M. D.

That the part 6f Main street extending from the Wells' corner to the cemetery corner will be paved in the very near future seems to be the opion of a committee of loc?l townspeople who met with the county commissioners yesterday afternoon in Plymouth. Te committee reports that the commissioners wer heartily in accord with the proposition and promised to go ahead with the matter immediately. Culver summer schools opened in full force last Wednesday with a total enrollment of 855 boys in the Naval, Cavalry and Wood.crai : Schools. Wednesday was devoted to the registration and enrollment of the incoming midshipmen, cadets and woodcrafters arid on Thursday the first regular meetings of the classes were held. After teaching in Marshall County public schools for over forty-six years, J. F. Behmer has retired from the profession and will take up farming on his small farm on the Behmer road northeast of Hibbard, This announcement was made public last week. William Heeter, well known resident of this vicinity for many years, passed away at his home in Delong last Wednesday after a lingering illness of a few months. Mail Man's Whistle Always Brings Quiet There are few hours in the day when a New York apartment house is free from noise, remarks the Sun, of that city. Pianos and phonographs and music lessons and ordinary human racket contribute to the volume of sound that floats through the building. But there are a few moments in every day when absolute silence reigns, a silence brought by the shrill whistle of the postman. Just as surely as the traffic policeman's whistle stops the stream of traffic does the postman's whistle stop the ordinary noises of the day. All in the building listen intently in the hope that their own names will be called out. The postman departs and the temporary quiet ceases. How Can The Infant Cry So Loud and Long? In meditating the other day on one of the most familiar lines of Tennyson, "An infant crying in the night I decided that insufficient attention had been given to it by physiologists, phonologists, music teachers, elocutionists, singers and public speakers, i Even these men and women who are fortunate enough to possess-, like Marion Crawford's Roman singer, a throat of iron, do not dare to shout and shriek continuously for the space of "two hours; whilst the average adult, if he roared for 15 minutes, The Dietrich Co. come out again. 25 acres of wheat that was good has been ruined and the home was pelted by hail until many of the windows were broken. East of this place are the homes of Roy Carswell and David Fretz. Mr. Carswell sustained heavy damage to his corn and wheat. The corn was beaten to the ground and Mr. Fretz has one patch of 50 acres that looks extremely bad indeed and it is doubt ful if it will make much of a crop, i unless almost a miracle is performed on the remaining heart of the stalk. Both Mr. Fretz and Mr. Carswell were heavy losers. Harry Brosius was another heavy loser. His corn and other crops were leveled. , Wheat cutting will be in full sway the latter part of this week, if weather conditions prevail as they have the most of this week. Wheat conditions are promising, the grain looking good, straw healthy and while there is some wheat blown down that will require cradleing or mowing, the results as a whole give farmers cheer. The first cutting that we have heard of was on the farm southeast of town, of Othar Miller, and the wheat put out by his son, John R. Miller. They opened the field Monday and cut it on Tuesday and Wedneslay. The contractors for the Beltz road, soethwest of this place, Messrs. Fribley & Lemler, are putting in a good road. The contract is being lived up to the letter, in fact they are doing better than the contract calls for a much higher percent of gravel on the road than the contract calls for, and of a much better quality. George Beltz is the inspector, and Mr. Beltz will look after it in a most careful manner. When that road is complet ed we are sure the people of that com munity will find their contract was well placed. Floyd and Mrs. Williams, who twice previous to this have failed to get a planned wedding tour, started last week, and have been having a great visit on the lakes, on one of the steam ships that make a specialty of this kind of a triD. They visit at other points, ,also, before they return and the information we have is that thev are having the time of Cheir lives, when this is written. The cement floor and alterations incident to making the town hall the receptacle of the fire fighting truck, are in course of preparation. The. place, when finished will be splendidly adapted to the use of the above. The "jail" was moved from the building to the sun-light, and the both it has been getting will do it some good. A "contract has been entered into between Peter Cjahnowski, owner of the big Delp Elevator and mills at this nlaee. wherebv he comes into possession of Chicago property, in exchange for the mill, and the new owners are to be Frank Fishman and C W. Studel, practical mill men. ARGOS ITEMS Wm- D. Ralston met with a pain ful and most regrettable accident Thursday morning at his shop on Michigan st. He was engaged in at tacfring a cross brace to the fenders of a car when in some way the steel lever he was using got out of his con trol and flew up and struck Mr. Ral ston on the left jaw with such force as to break the lower maxillary, or jawbone. The wound was given care ful surgical treatment and no doubt, will yield to the healing forces of na ture. But meanwhile William is not eating overmuch or talking a great deal. He is able to be about most of the time but the injury gives him a good deal of distress. Some of the boys had a little fun at the expense of Isaac Reed Thursday when he found a card attached to his Buick on Walnut St. inviting him to appear at Judge Carpenter's office Last Friday, the Fourth, at the park at Plymouth the Argos ringer tossers "ALWAYS DROWSY" Tired, Overworked, Strained Eyes Make Yen Feel That Way Because They Really Are Tired And Need Assistance.

MILFORD NOTES Te S-M. All Stars 'were unable to score against the Jimtown Tigers, Sunday at Syracuse, the final results being 5 to 0 in favor of Jimtown. Slabaugh and Trump formed the battery for the All Stars and Zentz and Holderman for the Tigers. Jimtown has always been represented by a good ball team, and Sunday they proved to be unusually handy with the stick. On July 4th the All-Stars defeated the Fort ayne Collegians at byracuse, in a close game. The score was 4 to 3. -Next bunuay the All-btars will play Mishawaka at West Side Tark Miss Esther Tusing, teacher of the primary grade of the Milford school, opened the six weeks term of the Milford kindergarten, Monday morning.

Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Tobias Nappanee spent the week end Milford with he rmother, Mrs. E. Stoller. ot in E BOURBON BRIEFS A disastrous storm of hail, rain and some wind visited the vicinty of Summit Chapel, last Monday at noon and left a track of devastation to crops when it had gone. It came from the southwest travelling north east. The strip was abotit a mile vide, and as near as we have been able to learn, about three miles long At Tippecanoe it hailed heavily, and as it pi-oceded northeast across the country the effects of the element on corn, wheat, oats and potatoes was most marked. The marked damage began out on the northwest line of the Eugene Floiy place, where wheat oats and corn suffered. Then on to the Moore place, north of Irvin Fites it left a well blazed path of ruin to crops. At the Fites home, north of the Moore place, and south of Summit Chapel, a field of corn was practically ruined, while the wheat crop, which had been looking exceedingly well was reduced to a probable one-third crop. In the rues yam hail was 3 to 4 inches deep and all sizes from the size of a buck shot to that of a hulled walnut. The tree leaves were beaten off so that the road looked as if a lawn mower had passed over it and left a trail of cut leaves strewn over the roads. The hail lay in piles as late as five oclock the next day. On the Files farm near Summit Chapel, where Link Yarnian batches, the Fites family were gathering strawberries. The hail was so thick that it remained on the patch long enough to freeze many of the berries. East of that place is the John Rcichert farm, en which Seward and Mrs. Bitting live. Their corn crop of 25 NAPPANEE NEWS The Aviation base ball team from Chanute field, Rantoul, III., spoiled the Fourth of July frame by their poor playing: for the largest crowd of the season at the East Side park Friday, afternoon. They were no match for the Tigers and the game was a long- drawn out affair, lasting two hours and five minutes. Many commenced leaving the park as early as the fourth inning when they saw the quality of ball the visitors were putting up. Sadowski, a port side fiinger essayed to pitch for the visitors. About all he had was an out shoot and when he was able to locate the plate his offerings were banged to all comers of the field. In the second inning he threw down eleven straight balls before he could put one over. The aviators scored two runs in the seconl inning, but after that they never had a look in and went out in quick succession as they came up to bat. Nappanee scored one in the first inning, three in the second, one in the third and seven in the fifth and what n fifth! The Tigers had twelve men to bat in this inning and it seemed as though the side would never be put out. Many improvements have been made at Community park by the park board this summer, especially for the benefit; of the younger ones. Two toboggan slides, a set of three swings and a Maypole have been installed, ! which gives the youngsters full opportunity of enjoying their favorite amusements. For the older- ones there are the croquet and horse shoe pitching courts. Work is progressing on a double tennis court and when this is completed the park will be well equipped to furnish amusement for all. The comfort stations for women and men are now fully equipped and the park is as complete as can be found anywhere, and is one of our civic prides. Members of the state highway commission have agreed to go to Peru and view the route of a proposed new state highway to tei-minate in that city, it was announced by J. L. Mur-den of the Murden Ford Agency, who returned from a meeting with the commission at Indianapolis last week. With this consideration given the proposition it is believed that the proposed project will be carried through to a successful culmination. The new state highway as planned would run from Elkhart to Peru by way of Nappanee, Akron and Chili, joining state road No. 1 at Peru, which is mostly' paved from Indianapolis to Elkhart. The reunion of the Neher and Ellis families was held at Community park Sunday with about 225 persons present. A picnic dinner was served at noon after which a program was rend red consisting of songs, recitations and speeches by several of tre men. The following officers were elected: President, Charles H. George; ice president, William F. Neher; secretary, Mrs. Ed. Reed of Bremen; program committee, Mrs. Truman George, Mrs. William Deisch, and Mrs. Oliver Neher. The next reunion will be held at the same place, and the same date. At the meeting of the town board Monday evening, a resolution was adopted declaring it necessary to improve YanBuren street from the east line of N. Nappanee street to the east line of N. Summit street. This im-provf would give a paved street from Community park to Summit ' street, which leads to the r.ast bide park. YanBuren street also passes j by the ,uth or front entrance of the j high school building and the improve- I meat would be a mcst desirable ami from evr-ry point of view. j Ix-vi Burkholder, 18, of Nappanee, j on Wednesday pleaded guilty in the j Elkhart circuit court before Judge James S. Drake of attempting to pass a fortred check for $75. He was paroled to his fathe-r, Jacob Burkholder, and his sentence with-held pending good behavior. Burkholder attempted to sell the check at the Farmers & Tracers Bank of Nappanee, on June 2i. The farm residence of John Blessing, 2 1-2 miles northeast of Nappanee, was burned to the ground Thursday evening about G oclock. The fire cauirht from the chimney in some manner and had made considerable headway before being discovered by Mr. tt'.o-sinjr. Nelson Maust, a neighbor, saw the fire at about the same time ar.d with the assistnace of other neiirhbors succeeded in removing sotr.e of ti e household furniture before the building va- consumed. The U- - !- '.-limuted sit :dv.i.t ?1,.VV) with a etc., ready for attachment. The old porch at the front of the Dick Walker home on Church st. has been removed and a spacious new one is being erected across the entire front. It will be nine feet wide and will be approached by steps at the east end leading up from an entrance walk to be built back along the east side of the house. The house is being l-epainted and when all is finished a marked improvement will have been made. A truck load of colored folks, most ly women and pickaninnies, pulled up in Argos for a half hour Saturday, while a tire was being repaired, having conveniently gone down near tho Kuhn Garage. The troop embraced bout a dozen of typically carefree darkies. No one learned whence they come or whither they goeth but when last seen they were happy on the way north. The basement being installed be neath the M. E. church is now well along toward completion . Metal ceil ing is being put on this week. When this improvement has been finished it will be a real asset to the church and to the community. A detailed write-up of the improvement will ap pear later. Lloyd Thompson of the Nickle Tlate signal service operating between Cleveland and Buffalo, came home to spend a short vacation with his moth er, Mrs. Huldah Thompson and family. CULVER CLIPPINGS Robbers entered the Fred G. Solomon store early this morning and looted the place, taking about 12 hundred dollar's worth of merchandise. The safe containing some money, was not touched. It is presumed that the robbery occurred at about three oclock this morning since Marshal iMurphy found everything as customary at about one o-clock this morning. Police departments of all the cities and towns in this part of the country have been notified to be on the look-out for the robbers, although no clues are available. The robbery was first discovered this morning when Fred Solomon opened up for the day at about seven oclock. He didn't have to move farther than the door to realize that something had happened for one whole section of shelves on the north side was cleared of Men's trousers, and empty silk hose boxes were strewn all over the floor on the south side. He walked to the rear and found that the shoe shelves had been pilfered of the best grades of men's shoes. Marshall Murphy was immediately called. Tire robbers gained admission to the store through the door which makes a rear entrance to the K. of P. lodge, room stairs. It was said by W. S. Eas-terday that the door was standing open this" morning. It is not definitely known but it is presumed that this door was unlocked.
