team to defeat the Royal Champs. He
says that when the boys get pepped
up they can beat the Royal bunch
easily, and attributes their defeat Sun

LARGE CROWD AT TILE
RED BIRD PICNIC
A large and enthusiastic crowd
gathered at the community picnic held
in the grove near the Red Bird store
last Saturday. The crowd was com
posed of residents of Holt, Knox and
Boyd counties, many of whom came
many miles to take part in the fes
tivities and to meet old friends.
Rev. W. L. Philley was to have made
an address following the noonday bes
ket dinner, but owing to the death of
Date Sievers, of Ewing, whose funeral
was to take place that afternoon, he
was unable to remain for the program.
J. M. Hunter, acting as chairman of
the day, ably introduced Judge Robert
R. Dickson, who made a short talk.
The Greenwood Indians and Verdel
played an extra good game of ball
which resulted in a victory for Verdel
3 to 2.

leans was one of the principal draw
ing cards on the program. Many of
the fats have not played ball in
recent years, but notwithstanding this
fact, they showed, by the way they
handled the ball, that they had for
gotten but little of their former
knowledge of the game. The leans
were the cream of the young men of
the community but were unable to
make, the desired showing against the
older heads. The final score was 9 to
7 in favor of the Fats.

The fleas were first incited to en

latter began feeding upon the hosts
of the fleas. In the preliminary skir
mishes between the two insects the
fleas soon discovered that it was easier
to puncture a wellfed and drdwsy
mosquito than it was to drill through

on the mosquitoes, which, as a conse

their newly acquired appetites, fol

“AIN’T NATURE WONDERFUL”
By Uncle Pete in Omaha Bee.
O’Neill, Neb., July 26.—Noiseless
celery, Doc Wilkinson’s new society
vegetable, made its first commercial
appearance in the markets of Beaver
Flats this week. The new plant is
the successful result of several years
of experimentation by the doctor in
his horticultural and botanical gar
dens, located in the northern suburbs
of the city.
The doctor’s attention first was at
tracted to the possibilities from a
commercial standpoint of a silent celery
when Mrs. Charley Laughing Horae
announced that she was about to
abolish the common variety from the
menu at her weekly bridge luncheons
because it seriously interfered with
the conversation of her guests and
frequently caused misinterpretation of
bids. Since that time the doctor has
devoted himself to the hybridization of
the ordinary celery plant with other
vegetables of a like succulency but
lesser brittleness of fibrous construct
ion, and at last he has solved the prob
lem by a cross with a modification of
the Mexican rubber plant.
The new celery is of a slightly dar
ker shade of green than the ordinary
variety and of somewhat shorted
stem. It is able to withstand dry sea
sons much better and matures in the
north much earlier than does the
other. It is prepared for the table by
first soaking it in a slight sulphur
solution to overcome the elasticity of
the rubber fibers and then cooled on
ice for several hours. The new plant
was tried out for several months at
local social functions before placing it
on the market.
