A The Greentown. i.leani will be a fast one this seasoi::. Dr. Freeman stales and he is of iilie opinion his boys will be able i;o handle anything that Tipton ijsn offer. So far no attennpt has been made to organise a baseball team here but whe';i a few warm days appear, the baseball ;fever will start, there wijil be talk, and then will come a call for young stars to practice, lit won't he long. now. KOKOMO QUIT. Haskctball Team Refused to Play and Frankfort Is Coining. Owing to a misunderstanding betwe'en the managements of the Parr Memorials and . the Tipton Merchants, the Kokomo {letters will not appear at the • armory tonight, but our old friendly enemies the Frankfort Nickel .Plate team will furnish the opposition. "Fur will fly" so to speak, when these all star fives meet for the last game of the season, for seldom are two teams as evenly matched. Manager C. E. Gray of the Tipton Merchants explains the situation in a statement as follows: "Just a few words as to the cancellation of our neighboring team from Kokomo.'With all due respe-ct to the Parr Memorials, who are really a wonderful amateur organization, more so' by their decisive victory with the Kokomo Eagles and the Muncie Normals, the management of the Tipton Merchants is at a loss to understand why that out of sixteen home games this year, it Iliad to oe the Memorials alone to iask for their own official. It is j customary for the home team to : furnish the referree and such j considerate managers as Deak ; Noble of Kokomo',. and Ben Swan- Miss Lucy l -:Tliou ;has returnedison of Frankfort never doubted from Indianapolis where she" had ,°™' choice of officials.

Mrs. Clyde Barr of MUford, 111., is visiting, at the h.Ojnie. of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles McConkey on North West street. Mr. Barr, who. accompanied Mrs. Barr here last week returned t° Milford, they having left their son and daughter in school there. Mrs. Barr.only recently returned to her home from the Lakeview hospital at Danville, j.1 Illinois, where she had been'a patient for several ' weeks and underwent a, serious operation. Her recovery has. been slow and after reaching Tipton it was found ehe was having very serious sinus trouble which" had been causing much of her trouble. She will remain i.n, Tipton while-taking treatment for the sinus •complications. . Exports Balsa Which Is But Half as Heavy as Cork.

We judge and concede them tu be a remarkable team, and furthermore would not like to see them tumble off the high pinnacle they have, climbed, for they are young and need encouragement.. "However, next Sunday afternoon would be an ideal time for them to show the Tipton fans just how the game should be played, and .we are sure that the local armory could be rented for that occasion. In . .conclusion, if by chance the management of the Parr Memorials should read this offering, relative to the game Ihat 'wai- to have been, he can get some business affairs.

Guay quil, Ecuador, March 22 -—Queer cargoes, including, tagua nuts, which become buttons; cinchona bark, from which quinine is made; cocoa beans, the raw material for chocolate; hat straw and rubber, leave this port, but perhaps the strangest- is balsa wood now being exported to the United. States in considerable quantities. This tough wood, the lightest known, only half the weight of cork, weighs seven pounds per cu bic foot, so that it is much, in demand by factories making airplanes, life-preservers, -surfboards and toys. It has splendid insu latiug qualities and is used exteu sively for insulating ice-boxes and cold storage rooms. In this .country its uses are even more varied, ranging from hog pens to razor strops. One of the principal sugar estates, Yaldez, is using it for insulating steam lines and vaccum pans. The local electric lig .ht company 'used palca planks to fill the spaces between the ceiling beams of its new Guayaquil office, and a large proportion of the tagua, rice' and Dther cargoes is floated to market on balso rafts. Along the coast, where the Pacific surf is not quite peaceful enough for boats, the fishermen use what they call balsillas, or small rafts, made out of three balsa logs about .twelve feet long and flattened on one side,- that have -ample buoyancy to carry a couple of. men and their fishing gear safely..Sometimes at Playas, about .seventy .miles from Gmava- quil, a flotilla of sixty balsillas may be seen putting out at sunrise, each With a small luioun s:iil hoisted, to carry th ^m to the fishing banks, quite out of sight of land. i The Peruvians, or Sechuras, as they, are called here, make quite large rafts, capable of carrying a whole family and a stock of salt fish, sisal rope, and pottery, the usual stock in trade of these primitive navigators, who brave the danger of being carried half round the world by the Humgoldt current. These folk, also rum -runners, are adept at smuggling pis- co, the fiery brandy of 'Peru,-which they carry in kegs tied under their rafts, so that after the deal is made, delivery is effected by casting the. cask loose with a small buoy made fast to. the line which is picked up by a . canoe some distance down the river and towed to any convenient landing place. Balsa formerly was cheap, but now that it is exported in such quantities the larger logs near the river banks are pretty well gone, and those "used for making landing stages for the wharves of Guayaquil cost about $20 each. These logs are about forty feet long and are dragged by oxen to. the river bank. Occasionally an - alligator is tempted by a balsero, or raft man. and finds him very easy prey, as he stands up to MB ankles in the water, pulling his long sweep. Snakes of. all kinds find a balsa log a convenient resting place in their long swims across the rivers. When the balsa wood reaches; New York it does not look much like the rafts floated down the; river, as the logs are aawed-up into planks about • three inches thick, all the harsh, gray outer part.and the reddish heart being discarded and only the creamy or spow what inner wood 'used. This is soft and silky to the touch, but holds- in each pore enough fine siliceous, matter to dull - quickly (;he best saws or knives. At the mill selection is made of the logs, for, there are two kinds of balsa trees, made and female. The male balsa is much heavier and is not accepted in the United" States. The loggers know-this, but they are always trying tq slip in a few male logs oh the mill man, who has, to go carefully over the raft he purchases to avoid getting, a lot of 'unsalable wood. AT SISTER'S HOME. Mrs. Hettie McCoy of Vinccnues Now With Mrs. Belle Hoback. Mrs, Hettie McCoy of cennes, a sister of Mrs. Hoback of Goldsmith, Vin Belle . was brought to Mrs. Hooack's home Sunday. Mrs. McCoy who is 70 years of age has been sick for some time and was brought to the sister's home that she might have the sister's care. Lawrence Hoback of Kokomo, a son. of Mrs. Hoback, accompanied Mrs. McCoy to his mother's home. She stood the trip vefy nicely and seemed to suffer no ill effects from it. SPELLING BEE.

Hensley, of North Independence street and Mr. and Mrs. LawreDce Myerly and daughter Margaret, visited at Elwood Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Merle DeFord and little son Max Clark; and Mrs. DeFord's mother, Mrs. Matilda Clark. Mr. and Mrs. DeFord and Mrs. Clark formerly lived neighbors to Mr. and Mrs. Hensley, when their house burned eight months ago. The baby, Max Clark,' was just four days old, and he and his mother were carried to the Hensley home, where Mr. and Mrs. Hensley shared the home with the family until they could get readjusted and secure another- house to which they could move what household effects they"saved. Max Clark is now eight months old, a strong,, sturdy baby, and is doing fine. Mr. iDeFord was transferred to Elwood shortly after the fire here.
