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. SO E 111 IHE LOUIS Cedar Creek Don't Give Man ley a Look-in at Big Game at the Louisville Carnival. 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 to score. 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 second base. 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.

Errors Man ley, 4; Cedar Creek, 2. There was plenty of Irish coin behind the famous aggregation and the Louisville sports were loath to get it covered, as their judgment, as usual, was very good and a neat little wad was cleaned up. There are two yital points to beware of before enter ing into a real battle over-confidence and underestimating Ihe enemy's strength. At 2:30 the Cedar Creek ag gregation went on the field for the second encounter of the day and were represented on the mound by the big chief, Mr. MeKeag, who hurled beautiful ball for live in nings, that being all he would go, as lie had a game to pitch Ihe fol lowing day. The sixth was where Ihe youngsters went to pieces, when the locals, with but one hit, put four scores across the platter. Two liils in the seventh allowed the second earned run for the locals, the first earned run being a homer by Ossonkop In the sec ond inning. Cedar Creek played a hard game after Ihe bad inning and scored in every inning but the last There is one thing that must be BALL PLAYInG VILLE CARNIVAL Local News W. M.

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 Penrose declared. 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 company. "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 combination." 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 "They are hidden in tho archives of the campaign committee, In the cellars and vaults or business men and In the offices of lawyers," retorted Senator j ' j Tenrosp i when th 'I think the 'time has come when theso charges should bo met and " " I" ' I'" riiv'UHi illl IIJIl i ,m gulled by answers which Insinuate 41... . 1 . ., that another man is a liar," Quotes Roosevelt Interview.
