The home team started with a bang, but as soon as the bang was over there wasn't even an ech ami Nappanee went home victors by a 6 to 3 count. The Greens did just about everything a team could do to lose a ball game, and they lost it. When both teams are going their best, they are evenly " matched and they make a good ball game. But it was one of those awful otT days for the Sox, ar.d they didn't have a chance against the fast going Tigers. Oswalt pitched for the Greens and pitched plenty good enough to get the verdict, but the breaks of the day and the boots of his mates were against him. According to the official score the Tigers got seven hits, but that's more than they deserved ar.d more than they could have got if the home guard had not faltered as it did. At the same time the Greens were charged with six errors, which does not include a number of misplays that contributed to the tragedy. Bremen started big in the home half of the opening frame when Shee-han banged one of Eggington's fast ones for a double and then stole third. Wertz was -tossed out by Eg-gington, but the big Tiger hurler was nervous and Touhey and Britten both worked him for passes. Hall delivered the timely single that scored two Greens and made the Bremen fans think the going was good. Nappanee came back with a double and two singles in the third, which combined with a kick by Touhey for three Tiger runs. They scored again in the fifth when Huff misjudged Claffy's fly and Tannehill followed it with a single. Joe scored when Bauerline made a wild heave to third. In the sixth the visitors added another without a hit, and in the eighth a walk, a sacrifice and a boot by Wertz let in the last run of the game. Bremen's third score came in the seventh, when Wertz crashed one to the left corner of the lot for three bases and legged it in on a hit and ran play that nailed Touhey at first. NAPPANEE AB R H ro A E "Fred" and "Dale," known to more people than most other town characters, have left this vale of tribulation. If there's a heaven for dogs, they're digging up celestial bones today and basking i n the fields Elysian. Schuyler Ranstead's "Fred," a pal of Doris Ellen Walter, and Noble Nusbaum's "Dale," both of them too old for the strenuous life of modern dog days, went to sleep together in the lethal chamber Sunday. There was no funeral service, but Doris Ellen was the chief mourner. THISTLES CUT FARMVALUES Purdue Expert Tells How To Fight Pest In Meetings Here. "The spread of Canada thistle is practically always accompanied by a corresponding decrease in land values, amounting in some cases to fifty percent and over," said A. A. Hansen of the Purdue Extension staff at a field meeting held on the farm of John Elliott near Bremen last week. The recent serious spread of the thistle was blamed largely to the mistaken idea that the plant does not produce seeds in Indiana, consequently many farmers fail to cut the plant in time. Numerous germination tests have demonstrated that Canada thistle does mature live seeds in Indiana and field studies show that the seeds are scattered by the wind and cause new patches. The Canada thistle law which prohibits the growth of the thistle to a greater height than six inches was fully explained and it was pointed out that the township trustee is the enforcing officer. Successful methods of eradication were explained and discussed. The use of Grimm alfalfa for three years, a method used successfully by Arthur Sheetz of Bremen in destroying an acre and a half of thistles, v a s highly recommended against the prickly pests. A similar meeting, organized by the county agent, was held on the farm of Oreal Kitch near Inwood. About 45 farmers took time from harvest work to attend these meetings. GREENS WILL GET CHANCE AT SOUTH BENDERS SATURDAY The Bremen Greens will get their chance at the highly touted South Bend club Saturday afternoon, when the Sox will invade Springbrook park to try their stuff against Louie Batchelor's crew. Oswalt will do the pitching for Bremen, and it is probable that Paul Castner will draw the assignment for the day from the Benders. Many Bremen fans are planning to follow their team to the big town, feeling that they have an even chance to win. On Sunday the Greens will travel to Elkhart for a l-eturn date with the Conns. The first meeting of the teams, scheduled here in May, was prevented by rain. Since then the Conns have beaten some of the best teams in this section, and gave the Nappanee Tigers a close battle two weeks ago, losing by a 4 to 2 count. Mrs. Roscoe Weiss Is Hurt in Fall at Theatre Mrs. Roscoe Weiss, who was formerly Miss Olga Milner of Bremen, was injured in a fall at the Black-stone theatre at South Bend Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Weiss, who were married only a few weeks ago, had just moved into their new home in South Bend. On Saturday evening they attended the Blackstone theatre, and Mrs. Weiss fell down eight steps as she was leaving her seat. Two bones in her ankle were broken and the joint was badly sprained. Mrs. Weiss was taken to Epworth hospital, where she will be for a week or more, and it is thought that she will bo unable to walk for six weeks or more. Marshall County Farmers Visit Test Plots 011 E. , r, xperimental Farm. ; ' Marshall county farmers gathered , . , t . , . , . vaiuable first hand information to the use of limestone and marl or. ac- id land on their trip to the Pin-, ney-rurdue farm near Wanatah last week. County Agent L. M. Butler 1 , , . . . ..... , has written his impression of the trip j for the Enquirer as follows: ; "The recent field meet held on the ! Pinney-Purdue farm near Wanatah was of interest to the spectators for the reason that the effect of certain materials when applied to that soil were very apparent. Of the materials studied and used most ex tensively lime of one form or anoth er was used Without lime the oil was very poor for cropping. And I yet five years ago this soil wasj virgin soil. "Most of the adjoining farms have been limed completely and today have some good crops growing on them. "An attempt has been made rather succesfully to compare different forms of lime for use on acid soils and! 1 HELP HI A 1R1P TO Ithe tropics . 4f 4, Bremen friends have received announcement of the marriage of Mrs. Hallie Ringgenberg, formerly of Bremen, to Mr. E. C. Downing of Chicago last fall. They spent their honeymoon in Cuba, remaining there through the winter. Mrs. Downing wrote her impressions of the country to Mrs. Carrie Place of Bremen, and because the story is well written and interesting, and by an author so well known here, it will be given to readers of the Enquirer. The story will be printed in four sections, one each week, and the following is the first installment: Foliage coloring in the fall does not depend so much on frost as one might think. The end of the period of growth is followed by a serene and prolonged maturity during which time the fruit grows. At fruit ripening time a quick and spectacular change occurs in the folias-e. Because frost comes at 1. .... .. . o-- aoout tnis time the theory ot Irost coloring is easy to believe. But f rost is not tlie rea agent as one can easibr see on a journey South in October and November. The woods arul dooryards are a riot of color as lar outh as hardwood lumber grows and quite a bit of hardwood is found below the frost line of these months. In southern Georgia a radical difference in plant growth is noted. Scrub palmetto has an important place in the outdoor scenery. Tines and palmetto supplant hardwoods and the dominant color is again green. The hanging moss adeis gray and farther south (below an imaginary line from Tampa to Cocoa) brown ami yellow- attest the dry heat of summer. Tropical plants begin to appear in abundance before reaching Palm Beach. Bananas, crotons, royal palms, hibiscus, giant oleaneler, sev- eral varieties of cactus ami ferns make a strong play for position in the riot of bloomlike coloring. The citrus fruits, ripening from November to March akl balls of gold to the greenery. Summer vegetables carpet many of the fields as far south as Homestead and Florida City. Add to this the ever present vine growth which literally covers fences, bare ground and trees; also, add the patches and vast stretches of salt and fresh .water in every shade of blue and green. That is Florida to the Everglades. Here an abrupt and sombre change takes place. A vast area of gray-brown water grass with island-like hummocks of scrub growth and patches of alkaline appearing pools of water. This for fifty miles and t! ion the thousand th Florida Keys. A full quarter of the mileage from L Continued on Page 8, Col 6 Asserting that the willful disregard of laws and safety rules as well as the rules of common decency, as practiced by a good many automobile drivers in Indiana, is almost certain to bring out a flood of stringent "thou-shalt-not" bills in the next legislature, M. E. Noblet, secretary-manager of the Hoosier State A. A., the state-wide organization of automobile owners, today calls for a "show down on the part of all decent drivers and those who want to do the right thing always." "Unless , the self-respecting, right-thinking drivers in Indiana rally now to subdue the reckless and lawless drivers, we are going to be tarred with the same stick when the lawmakers get through with us next winter," Noblet said. "We are all likely to have to suffer for the sins of the few, but the trouble is that few, instead of becoming fewer, seem to be getting - more numerous. "Whenever you hear of a driver who boasts that he drove from Terre Haute to Indianapolis in an hour and fifty minutes, a distance of 71 miles, and in the night-time at that, you have a sample of the wild-eyed, reckless driver who must be suppressed. We heard of this boast the other day. And the boast was further supplemented by the statement: 'It was raining cats and dogs, too.' We submit that no highway, no matter how well paved, is safe for such sustained speed of more than 40 miles an hour in the darkness of a rainy night. - Terhaps that fellow had headlights which enabled him to see for a half a mile ahead but what about the fellow who was driving against them? And what of the jeopardy to other traffic caused by such wild-eyed driving?" American Radiator Co. Official Taken by Death W. S. Morrison, jnanager, and Sam Miller, superintendent, of the Bremen plant of the American Radiator Company, were at Buffalo Saturday to attend the funeral services of R. L. Redpath, general superintendent of manufacturing for the company, who died in that city Thursday. Mr. Redpath was a brother-in-law of Mr. Miller, and has been in Bremen on business for the company. Mr. Miller left for Buffalo Thursday on receipt of word of his brother-in-law's critical condition, but Mr. Redpath dieei before he arrived. Mr. Morrison went Friday. Chapel ser-4, vices were held at Buffalo Saturday and the body was taken to Mr. Red-path's former home at Sparta, 111., where the burial service was held Monday. Mr. Morrison returned home from Buffalo Sunday, Mr. Miller going on with the funeral party to Sparta. The Bremen plant, in common with the company's other plants, was closed all day Saturday as a mark of respect. Samuel Haenes Suffers Slight Paralytic Stroke Samuel Haenes suffered a slight stroke of paralysis, affecting his left side, early Tuesday morning. He had worked all day Monday at the new residence of Mrs. Gerber on North Baltimore street, where he was putting in cellar walls. It is thought that he became overheated during the day, which may have been one of the causes of the stroke. He is recovering satisfactorily. Returned Missionary To Speak In Bremen Sunday Elder A. V. Ross, a returned missionary from India, will speak at the Church of the Brethren Sunday morning and afternoon. In the morn ing he will give an address on world j peace, and the afternoon the subject will bo mission's. Sunday will be ob-s. rvid as Peace Day by the Crop reports from over Marshall county, as reported through the county agent's office at Plymouth, indicate an unusually good hay crop. The fine yield is making the farmers smile, as it will help to provide feed for the stock next winter, in spite of the short corn yield. Marshall county's 5,000 acres of alfalfa have yielded perhaps the heaviest crop this spring since alfalfa has come into vogue here and a large proportion of the hay lofts are already full. The comparatively clear weather of the past two weeks has permitted a consistent campaign " on the hay fields. Many alfalfa fields have yielded two tons to the acre and some have beaten this. On many farms the second crop is already fairly well along although the season has been backward and this also promises to be good. Probably much alfalfa . will be stacked, a rather unusual situation in this county. Although there will not be much sale for hay locally, it is not improboble that hay will be shipped out of the county this season. Rumors are heard of preparations for baling the second crop of alfalfa later in the summer. Clover and timothy have been equally rank in growth with the wet spring and the yields have been good. County Agent L. M. Butler estimates that 1924 will see a larger acreage of new alfalfa seeded than the average of the last few years. Marshall County Man Wins Scholarhip Honor Roy A. Broman, of Donaldson, a senior at Indiana university during the past spring semester, is one of forty-three students carrying a minimum of fifteen credit hpurs who made "A" in all their academic work for the semester, according to an announcement made recently by Dean David A. Rothrock of the university. This grade made by tthe MarshalJ county man means the highest possible quality work in all subjects and is all the more remarkable when the small number of students receiving the "straight A" is compared with the total enrollment at Bloomington of approximately 3300 students. The standard of scholarship at Indiana university for the recent spring semester, as indicated by "A" grades, is twice as high as that of a j-ear ago, when only twenty-two students won the honor of a grade of "A" in fifteen hours or more of college work. John O'Connor Drives To Nappanee For Check John O'Connor drove eight miles to Nappanee Saturday to find the Hidden Check at the Clarence Deisch tailor shop. One other person was on hand with the correct solution to the puzzle, Miss Helen Minard, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Minard of Nappanee. They divided the prize. Scores of Bremen people solved the riddle of the extra letters, but Mr. O'Connor was the only one of them to take the trouble to make the eight mile drive. Turn to page seven again today and hunt up the letter. Tut them together and find out where the check is . No trick of any kind but you must read all the ads if you want to find the answer. ' Mrs. W.

Through some sort of error the rumor started in Bremen this week that the baseball club was done for j the year. The managers of the ' Greens are looking for the fellow that started the story with a big stuiT- ed sock. There's absolutelv nothing ' to it. The Greens are going good, and while the receipts have not been as large as they should be, there !kis never been a thought of quitting.

On this soil four tons of limestone has been found to be about the most economical amount to use , for all crops being grown on that farm. In comparing these two materials four tons of each were used. This fact should be of value to owners of farms whereon deposits of marl are to be found. "One other comparison which should be of much interest to users of lime on acid soils was between the ground limestone and the hydrate lime. When as much as two an a half tons of the hydrate lime was applied per acre it was possible to get the same crop yields as where four tons of ground limestone was applied per acre. The difference in cost was large for the hydrate cost $12 per ton while the limestone cost only $2.00.
