Last week Owen Yockey ordered a little want ad, telling the world in a modest sort of way that he had pickles to sell. s Two weeks, he thought, would be long enough to run it. Maybe that would sell a few maybe enough to pay for the ad. Monday morning came a message from Owen: "Stop that ad! I'm sold out." As somebody once remarked, -those Enquirer want ads do get results. STAR GAZERS SEE RED PLANET MARS ON EARTHLY VISIT Mare, planet of ruddy glow and warlike attributes, came closer to earth last week than it has been for a hundred and twenty years. According to the calculations of the astronomers, it will be more than two hundred years before the planet is so close again. But in its closeness ! i it was still separated from us "by more than thirty-four million miles, which is quite a hop, as the flyers would say . All over the world astronomers and star gazers, scientists and students of the skies, looked at the planet through all manner of telescopic contrivances, seeking to learn more of Martian life, if such a thing there be. Photographic plates were made by the hundred, and the result of the study will not be known for several weeks. At the observatories at Williams Bay, Wis., and at Mount Wilson, Cal., the huge telescopes were kept on the planet constantly and many pictures were made. Although the heavenly visitor is already slipping away from us, and will continue to widen the mighty gap, astronomers expect to be able to make better observations later in the year than now. Baby Loses Finger In Gasoline Engine The little two year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Franklin, who live west of Bremen, lost the first finger of his right hand Sunday morning when he put his hand in the gears of a gasoline engine which was being used to pump water. The finger had to be amputated. Plan to spend next Thursday in Bremen that will be Dollar Day. Iligh powered pitching and speedy fielding marked a fast battle between the Bremen Greens and the Elkhart Conns at Elkhart Sunday, in which the Conns won the verdict of 2 to 1. Johnny Oswalt, going in good form for the Greens, whiffed ten of the band men and allowed four hits. Hartsaugh, working on the mound for Elkhart, let the Bremen clouters down with a like number of safe swats and fanned four. Beth pitchers gave a fine exhibition of hurling, hut errors at the wrong time, coupled with extra base knocks, gave Elkhart the edge. A fast double play by the Conn infield, in which Touhey forced Shee-han after Bill had singled, nipped the f.rt Bremen offensive. Elkhart stepned out ahead in the second fra;"e then and the Conn men were never headed. With two gone in the second VanAntwerp connected for two bases arid counted on an error by Wertz, Elkhart's other run came with two down in the fourth, when Kimmeth tripled with nobody on and counted when Bauerline dropped the throw to the plate. That was the end of the Conn scoring, although they reached third base in the sixth an 1 again in the ninth. Bremen's one run came in the sixth. Bauerline grounded out to first. Oswalt slammed to short and lived when, Scott booted it. Wertz drove out a double, scoring John. Wertz stole third, but Sheehan fanned and Touhey rolled an easy out to VanAntwerp. The Greens threatened in the eighth and ninth, but then Hartsaugh tightened whenever it looked dangerous and the Bremen men were unable to produce runs. Bill Sheehan collected two of Bi-e-' men's four hits;, Whiting and Wertz each getting one of the other two. Bremen ABRH PO AE The Bremen public schools will start the 1924-25 year on Monday, Sept. 8 just a veek from next Monday. Supt. C. B. Macy and the board of education have completed the teaching staff for the year, and the list includes instructors of known ability and excellent qualifications. The officials express themselves as satisfied that the organization in charge of the schools during the year to come will make possible one of the best years in the history of the institution. Preliminary arrangements for entering high school, including the preparation of schedules, may be made by students on Friday, Sept. 5. On that day Mr. Macy and E. D. Scud-der, the new principal of the high school, will be at the school build ing to meet students and assist them in these arrangements. Freshmen especially are asked to meet the superintendent and principal Friday, and all others who can do so, in any of the classes, are requested to come. A teachers' meeting will be held at the school building Saturday afternoon, when all teachers will be present to make their plans for the opening cf the year.

Miss Bertha Nixon of Lynn, Ind, is a new teacher in charge of the fourth grade. Miss Pauline Pittman of Corydon and Clyde Black of Danville, Continued on Page S, Col 6 Harold Beehler, veteran of the world war, missing for four days last week, was found Friday. On the fifth day of a search by his parents, his dead body was discovered by boys swimming in Yellow river a mile west of Bremen, just south of the Kiefer bridge on the Plymouth road. Evidently the young man had been dead since Monday, the day of his disappearance. Beehler had been working in South Bend for some time and a few days before his death he had come to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. August Beehler,- who live on the Fink farm west of town, to spend a short vacation. Monday afternoon he disappeared. " It has been learned since that he took a line and pole and went to the river near his father's house to fish. When he did not return home in the evening his parents supposed he had come to town and they were not alarmed. Even on the following days there was no fear as to his welfare, the parents supposing that Harold had probably gone to South Bend to see about his return to work. When Thursday evening brought no won! of the young man, his parents became uneasy. They searched the river along their place, but found no evidence that he was there. On Friday they drove to Elkhart, thinking that he might have gone to friends in that city. When they returned home Friday afternoon they learned that the body of the young man had been found by boys in the river. Young Beehler was a veteran of the world war. In France he was gassed twice, and from the effects of that gas he was subject to spells of dizziness. It is now evident that he vent to the river to fish and probably wliile baiting his hook he fell in one of his attacks of dizziness, falling on his face in the water and drowning before he recovered his faculties. His line was tangled about him and the hook was caught in his clothing, which, accounts for the fact that the body did not drift away from the place where he fell. Boys playing at the river Monday Continued on Page 8, Col 5. HIS DAY Lillian Kling was the lucky girl last week. She read all the ads in the Hidden Check page avid found the extra letters. Then she put them together and found that the pize was at the Breunlm tin shop. Saturday afternoon at two oclock she discovered that other people had been busy, too. Twenty-two correct solutions were presented at the Breunlm shop. Lillian won the draw. It was the last check of the ten week series.

A. AK1, si pt 1. c.ccoro re t : mr ' t'vs v ?ek by rinu-ak-i t. Next Thursday, Sept. 4, will be Dollar Day in , Bremen. Merchants of the town will offer their various lines of merchandise at reduced prices on that day, working together in one big co-operative effort to show the buying public of this trade territory that this is the logical place for them to make their purchases. Not just one store, but practically every business house in Bremen will unite in the event, which promises to be so attractive in the values that will be offered that buyers will come for many miles to see what the stores are offering. 31 any special values will be sold at a dollar that ordinarily bring a much higher price. And in nearly every line of merchandise buyers will find an opportunity to save considerable sums of money in their purchases. In these days of rather strenuous times for the farmer, this Dollar Day event ought to prove of real worth, especially to rural shoppers. The special values offered by Bremen stores will put the buying power of the dollar nearer to its former standard than it has Ueen in many months. Last year the Dollar Day sales brought purchasers to Bremen from a large territory. The automobile makes it easy to travel many miles to shop, if the prices offered are attractive enough to make a trip worth while. In their last Dollar Day effort the Bremen business houses served hundreds of buyers who do not get to Bremen for their regular trading. For the accommodation of those shoppers who will not be able to get into town during the day, the stores will be open during the evening, and the sale prices of the day will prevail through the evening hour. The Bremen band will give its weekly concert on the street, and the usual Thursday evening crowd will probably be swelled to a record attendance. Visitors to Bremen on Dollar Day will be more than ever impressed with the fine spirit of co-operation which has prompted the merchants of the town to make their special reduced prices on this day. All are concerned primarily with Ahe one idea of making the people who come here understand that they are welcome in Bremen, and .that this is the best place for their regular trade. This event is an invitation to thrifty buyers to see the Bremen stores and what they offer, not only in the special dollar values which will be on sale for the one day, but in every line of merchandise. Coming at-a time of year when many shoppers are making their early purchases for the winter season, just before the opening of the school year, Dollar Day offers an exceptional opportunity to make substantial savings in the purchase of the necessities of the season. Whether they want to buy or not, many others will be in Bremen next Thursday just to see their friends who will be here and to hear the band concert in the evening. If last year's event may be taken as an indication of what is expected next Thursday, Bremen business houses will be thronged with visitors. On account of the crowds, it will be well to remember that the early shoppers will get the choice of the Dollar Day offers. Don't Scratch 'em! Just Let 'em Itch and Itch Don't scratch mosquito bites, warns Health Commissioner Bundeson of Chier o. "The great danger from mosquito stings is the possibility of infection from scratching," says the commissioner. "If you refrain from irritating the spot, a mosquito bite will not cause any distress after the first few moments." AH of which loads one to wonder if the doctor was over .uorcii by arc ,. .

Then come o town next Thursday and let your dollas do .double duty for you. Ohio Democrats Take Stand Against Ku'Klux The democratic party of Ohio, in its state convention at Columbus Tuesday, adopted in its platform an anti-kla.i declaration, the pronouncement of the national leader of the party, John W. Davis. The Ohio plank said: "Whenever any organization, no matter what it chooses to be called, whether Ku Klux Klan or any other name, raises the standard of racial or religious belief as a test of fitness for public office, it does violence to the spirit of American institutions and must be condemned by all who believe in American ideals." NO SEWER NOW 0N: NORTH SIDE Board Rejects Petition But Orders Another Survey Made. Organized remonstrance against the proposed new sewer on Dewey, Washington, Bike, East and North streets defeated the improvement Tuesday evening, when the town board, meeting in regular session, rejected the petition. At the same time the board order ed a new survey made for the proposed improvement, in accordance with the original petition, which is still pending. In the resolution by the board proposing the sewer, it was specified that the drain should tap into the Center street trunk line at Mill street. In the survey the course was changed so that the tap was made at Dewey street. Most of the re-monstrators objected to this change, and it is thought that to change the course back to that originally planned, leaving out the sewer on Dewey and Washington streets, will meet their approval. W. E. Murchie, manager cf the Goshen-Warsaw district of the Interstate Public Service Company, which supplier Bremen with electric current, was present at the meeting of the board Tuesday evening. J. R. Mishler, superintendent of the lines out of Goshen, was with him. They expressed a desire to cooperate in every way possible to help the board "give electric patrons the best possible service. A special meeting of the board has been called for tonight to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Charles L. Berg from the board.
