TWO CROPS OF APPLES
ON THE SAME ME
Secretary Marshall of the state
board of horticulture has samples
of freak apples that grew in an
orchard near Weeping Water,
says the State Journal. They grew
on suckers or water sprouts that
came out of the sides' of large
trunk limbs on two trees of the
American summer Pearmain
varretyY'" The 'sprouts were pur
posely allowed to grow. The tree
bloomed April 25 and bore fruit
which has matured and has been
picked. June 1 blooms appeared
on the sprouts anil well-formed
apples of large size arc the result.
They are still green, but will evi
dently mature, although much
later than the other fruit on the
same tree. Secretary Marshall
says this is the first instance, to
his knowledge, of apples on wood
grown the same year the apples
appeared. As a rule the wood
growth of one year never blooms
until the following year. There
are three pecks of the freak ap
ples on two trees. This is prac
tically two crops the same year
from the same tree.
Preliminary Hearing Tomorrow.
To enable the slate to procure
additional testimony, the pre
liminary hearing of Arthur Jacoby
and Louie Kuhney was postponed
until Friday morning.
111 IHE LOUIS
Cedar Creek Don't Give Man ley
a Look-in at Big Game at the
One of the most enthusiastic
games of base ball ever pulled off
at the Louisville ball park was be
tween the two little burgs of Cedar
Creek and Manley. A ball team
cannot always be measured by the
size of a town, which was plainly
evident at this clash.
At the beginning Manley rooters
were strong in their belief that
Cedar Creek's machine would
crumble before such a lire as was
expected front the talented Mr.
Cunningham from Omaha, who
was on the mound, but when the
ever true Mr. Conner's south paw
got wound up and let loose of
some of his reserves of slants and
smoke it looked as though there
were others at their posts, which
fact became more evident as the
game proceeded. It was a pretty
battle from the mound until the
fourth inning, when, with two men
down and two and nothing on the
baiter, the famous Mr. Cunning
ham presented Wolff with a walk.
Conner was the next on the bat
ting order and he laced out a neat
little single, placing a man on first
and second with the big chief, Mr.
MeKeag, at the bat. True to his
name, the stalky Indian wcilded
his club with the accuracy of a
Roman and the ball went sizzing
through the opening between first
and second base and Wolff and
Conner both came marching
home "with the bacon."
There were two men down in
Mauley's half of the fourth in
ning, when Weeping Water's star,
Mr. Klipser, made an attempt lo
pilfer second base, but was caught
by four feel, when a very rank de
cision, which was later acknow
ledged by the umpire, game him
life and made it possible for Man
ley's only scores to come in. This
fact remains undisputed by all
fair-minded fans who witnessed
the game, and therefore they claim
it a shutout in reality. There was
never another chance for Manley
v. Mr. Durkee, an ex-Storz
Triumph, was there and over on
the shortstop line for Manley, but
he, too, humbled himself before
the slants of Mr. Conner. The
Cedar Creek machinery was work
ing so smoothly that even the
fleet-footed Mr. Routh and Mr.
O'Hrien were slabbed by a good
margin in I heir attempt lo steal
The whole team played a won
derful game and without the ex
cusable errors in the out field it
would have been without) a lainl
Again in the seventh the first man
up hit for two sacks and was fol
lowed by the topnolchers on Cedar
Creek's batting list with bingles
until the bases were choked, with
the little 18-year-old Walter Sal
berg at the bat. Well, he just
slipped a beautiful one over Ihe
infield and scored two, making his
second hit in the game and bring
ing in three runs in all, which Is
not so bad for a minor.
There were but seven of Man
ley's men who were allowed a
berth on the initial bag, and three
of this number were caught at
second attempting to pilfer. Score

torEditor Also Object of Attack.
Washington, Aug. 22. In a careful,
deliberate speech in the senate Sena
tor Penrose of Pennsylvania replied to
the charges made regarding a certif
icate of deposit for $25,000 sent hini by
John D. Arcbbold or the Standard Oil
company In 1904. ,
Senator Penrose admitted receiving
that sum from Mr. Archbold, but said
it was part of a collection of a con
tribution of $150,000 made by Archbold
to the Republican national campaign,
$100,0(10 of which amount he said went
to tho Republican national committee
and $50,000 to himself for use In Penn
sylvania. "Theodore Roosevelt had been ad
vised of the contribution," Senator
He said that later Cornelius N. Miss,
then treasurer of tho national commit
tee, asked for another contribution of
$150,000 from Archbold and his asso
ciates "Interested In the Standard Oil
"The demand was urgent, Insistent
I may say Imperative and It was re
ported It came direct from Roosevelt,"
declared Senator Penrose, forcefully.
William Fllnn, Roosevelt leader In
Pennsylvania, was scored by Penrose.
The senator charged that In 1904 Flinn
offered him and Israel V. Durham
"$1,000,0(10 or $2,000,000" If they would
favor his candidacy to the senate to
succeed Senator Quay. Senator Pen
rose read what purported to bo copies
of telegrams to show that Fllnn asked
John D. Archbold to assist him In se
curing the election.
( Editor Object of Attack.
Senator Penrose also attacked E. A.
Van Vnlkenberg, editor of the Pennsyl
vania North American, and referred
to the "effrontery, hypocrisy and men
dacity of the Van , Valkenberg Fllnn
The galleries of the senate were
filled In response to the announce
ment that Senator Penrose was to
upcak. He read his speech from print
ed proofB. At the 'conclusion or his
speech the senator promised further
disclosures. Senator , Stone (Mo.)
asked him If he knew anything or the
contribution of E. It. ilarrlnian to the
1904 Republican campaign fund.
"The papers are on file and letters
exist." said Senator Penrose, "which I
think during the campaign will see the
light or day. I think it would be very
beneficial to the country ir they should
become public." ' ' 1
"Where are they now?" asked Sena
tor Stone. j i i
