Culver Citizen, Nappanee Advance-News, Bourbon News-Mirror, Milford Mail, Argos Reflector. husky lads from Kosciusko county were compelled to bow down to their superiors, in the art of playing ball. Truly it was a great game, and the best of the season. For eleven innings both teams battled for supremacy, but the victory was landed in the eleventh by a score of 5 to 4. Owing to Earl Carbiener's absence, Harm Tobas, of Nappanee, was secured by the Crescent management and he made a worthy successor to our only Earl. Did he pitch a good game? Well, I like your nerve. He simply had everything; when the Etna Frank Nufer has given up his contemplated trip to Switzerland, and back to the bam, the bull rushed at him and knocked him to the ground. Mrs. Rookstool heard the cries of her husband and rushed to him driving the- animal off with a pitchfork, after it had rolled Mr. Rookstool about fifty feet across the barnyard and thrown him against a fence. He suffered four broken ribs and was painfully cut and bruised about the body. He suffered much pain following the accident and the extent of his injuries could not be fully determined. In a report made by the state board of accounts last week, the examiners point out that too much money is being paid out by township trustees of Kosciusko county, to Winona today to see the boys and to attend the Homer recital. General Gignilliat went out Monday evening to ride with the Cavalry Tuesday and today. Gen. Gignilliat is one of the men appointed by Governor Branch to make plans for the Defense or "Mobilization day program in Indiana on September 12. He will have charge of the arrangement in three of the northern congressional districts. The plans for the day are simply to make it a try-out of the national defense act and to familiarize the various bodies with the methods and places of reporting for duty in time of emergency. It will also be used to make bettier known to the general public the provisions of this act. $7.50 and $8.50 Shell Glasses Complete, Examination included, boys were not busy filling up the but this year the bulk of it is No. 1, and tests as much and is being graded as such.

John Fogle and wife have returned j from a two weeks' visit and fishing j trip to the Traverse Bay, Mich., holes in their bats they were going out on easy bingles to the field. His remarkable pitching had much to do in landing the game, as he struck out 16 men and held them down to four hits. Another noteworthy feature about Tobias' pitching is, that this was his maiden game, which gees to show that the young man is made of the right stuff, and with more experience is bound to develop in the making of a good ' pitcher. Anyhow he won a home with the Bremen farts, who will give him a glad hand, whether he comes to this city to pitch for other aggregations, or wears a suit of the invincible Crescents. Barring the first inning the locals played the snappiest kind of ball, Grove Walters coming in for his share of fielding honors, and Richardson for his batting powers. All in all, the boys are showing wonderful improvement in playing the game, and will soon be able to cope with stronger clubs. Let's tackle Plymouth. What do you say? attfunntfxJ tr srnrp after CAL.

Will Miller, the painter, had a rather serious runaway experience" while returning home from work, Monday evening. He was thrown out of the buggy and badly bruised, but no bones broken. Misses Maude and Helen McKinney entertained a party of eight young ladies at breakfast, Tuesday morning, the previous evening having been spent in music and dancing. The guests were Misses Besse Ros, Zeta Hayes, Eugenia Rittenhouse, Emma Stabe, May Fries, Ethel Garver, Edith Hans, and Franc Mensel. Among the fans who went to South Bend Tuesday to see the game with Ft. Wayne, were Will Helm-Iinger, Otto Walter, Clarence Car-biener, Otto and Norman Voegeli, L. F. Gerber, Harmon Wahl, Clyde Coverston, Urban Dietrich, Birt Ellis, Oliver Diertich, Buford Knoblock, Lloyd Dietrich, Tafield and Charles Kettering.

Roy has been on several interesting voyages since he was last home. That great parade of automobiles through the state, from New York to St. Louis, experienced a wonderful shrinkage from the first reports. Instead of 2500 machines, with four times as many people, perhaps fifty vehicles are making the trip, and will be at South Bend today or tomorrow.

Last Sunday night near the Jerome Zechiel corner south of town, two cars came together in a head-on collision. One car, a Buick, was driven by a Rochester man. His name was not learned. William Morgan o Mentone was driving a Ford. Both cars were badly damaged and had to be hauled in. Both drivers admitted being at fault and for that reason, each will stand the expense of repairing his own car. Although there is a large amount of inside work to be done on the Evangelical church, it is far enough along now that one can see what it is going to look like when it is finished. All of the stone work, and a large part of the carpenter work has been completed. There still remains some carpenter work to be done and the decorating of the interior. Russell Riddle and Robert Ewald will leave next Monday on a tour of the Wrest. They plan to go to Wyoming. The two are making no promises as to when they will return. O. T. Goss and family attended the twentieth annual reunion of the Huff relatives last Sunday at Lake of the Woods. There were approximately three hundred present. hundreds of acres on his farm devoted to cherries and other fruits. The fishing was something extraordinary, Mr. Fogle at one time catching a rainbow trout that weighed more than four pounds. He and his wife thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Grant S.
