DETAILS OF DROWNING
OF FORMER COLVILLE BOY San Diego, California, June 28.— A summary of the details of the tragic death, June 10, by drowning of Hale Broezell residing at .'504 Hawthorn street, San Diego, may be of interest to his many friends in Colville where he resided for more than ten years before coming here three years ago. Hale was a native of Maustin, Wisconsin, pass ed the grades in the Colville schools and had spent a year in the San Diego high school where he was a diligent student and popular. The Broezell home is on a high elevation overlooking San Diego bay and only a few blocks distance from the water front. Hale and a high school companion had con ceived the idea of a small sailing craft and executed their plan in a neat boat which was built in the back yard of the home and carried to the bay front where it was launched about three weeks ago. The parents looked with some mis givings upon the enterprise, Mr. Broezell said: "My boy, I have some fears as to the safety of your boat. It looks too frail for a salt water cruiser. You know you can't swim." Hale told his father that they would carry life preservers, exhibiting them to his parents, and with these as surances of safety the boat was re leased, carried to the water, launch ed and a successful voyage made across the bay—a distance of a mile or so and return. The next day another trip was logged, but when they went to the landing the third time they found the boat gone, evi dently stolen. They immediately secured a neighboring canoe and without leaving any message they set about a tour of the bay to find their boat. When about 1000 feet from shore the canoe encountered a swell from a U. S. cruiser swiftly passing down the bay and was overturned. The two boys had not taken life preservers. Hale was helpless while his companion, about the same age, was a fine swimmer, and was dexterous enough to rid himself of his clothing the better to enable him to render assistance to Hale who was floundering in a heavy sea. Hale's companion be coming exhausted was rescued by a sailor. Three attempts to take the drowning lad to shore failed and he sank in deep water beyond reach of the divers. Unable to find the body by ordinary means a number of heavy charges of dynamite were submerged in the place where the boy was last seen, and electrically discharged thereby releasing the body to the surface where it was recovered June 15th. The funeral followed on Saturday, June 18, at tended by many friends of the fam ily in the city and by high school companions. A feature was the gorgeous floral display drawn from '•■> choicest growth of the city. In terment was in Mount Hope ceme tery. Rev. E. F. Hallenbeck read the service at the chapel and at the graveside. A striking circumstance of Hale's young life was recalled by his moth er after their return from the fu neral services. She said that a few days before the drowning he came into the house quite composed but also quite in earnest and said: "Mamma, Billy overtook me and walked and talked with me today." His mother idly inquired who Billy was. "Why," he said, "don't you re member Billy Jackson who used to coast with me down hill in Colville? He walked and talked with me to day." Mrs. Broezell did not think otherwise than perhaps he met an old Colville chum on the street, but after Hale had been laid to his rest she remembered that Billy Jackson, who was the son of former Deputy Sheriff Jackson at Colville, was kill ed more than a year ago in an auto mobile accident in Portland, Ore. Edgar Hale Broezell was just reaching his first manhood and was meriting the honor by his strict in tegrity which won for him employ ment where others failed. His spare time was always employed. One of his accomplishments was wireless telegraphy, and he had a well equip ped station over the parental home where he picked up messages from far countries. He strictly observed the code of honor of the wireless field and never was known to reveal, even to his parents, any governmen tal information responding to his instruments. Besides his parents, young Brorzell is survived by a brother. John Broe zell living at Eauclaire, Wi*. An aunt, Mrs. P. C. Walston, and other relatives reside at Colville.

COLVILLE CHAUTAUQUA RENDERS GOOD PROGRAM The Chautauqua ended the annual series of entertainments Tuesday evening, and all numbers were en joyed by all. A large attendance was present at all entertainments. Enough signatures have been ob tained to insure a chautauqua for next year. The Junior Chautauqua was an important part of the Chautauqua held here this week. The education value of the organization is inval uable to small communities. The responsiveness of the children in bringing their pets Tuesday to the exhibition of domestic animals was especially noticable. Almost every chiltl in attendance carried tucked under its arm their pet. Harry Dorman kidnapped bodily M. A. Rodman's bull dog Schim from the- Examiner office, for the exhibition, and Schim is now proudly wearing a blue ribbon. The judges of the animals were "Miss Cameron and Glenn A. Hobbs. Glenn said the ex hibition well deserved second prizes, for many of the animals were well trained and above the average in in telligence. They were all well be haved with the exception of the dogs and cats who, because of racial prejudice, nearly started a melee. Blue ribbon winners were as fol lows: Bull dog, Schim, exhibited by Harry Dorman. Horse, exhibited by Klorstine Smith. Shetland pony, exhibited by Ida Fordan.

Reference: Name First National Bank of Hinsdale, Montana Address USE OF SULPHUR FOR POTATO SCAB Article Published in the Nassau Count} Farm and Home Bureau NVws by the Nassau County Farm and Home Bureau Association H. .1. Evans, Editor and Manager. (Mr Evans is county agent for Nassau county, Long Island, X. V.) Potato Scab I'nder Control Many visitors at the county fair (at Mineola, 1,. I.) were attracted by the exhibit of scabby potatoes grown by one of our prominent officers. The-<> potatoes were displayed partly for 'lie purpose of showing people how bad potato scab could make po tatoes look, but mainly to call their attention to a chart showing results obtained by Schreiber Brothers of Hicksville where they had used sul phur in an effort to control potato scab. The test was made on a field which had been producing scabby potatoes for several years in succession. Potato scab is a bacterial disease. The organism does not thrive in a sour soil, but in soil slightly acid or sweet, the organism is likely to de velop to such an extent that the crop is seriously affected. The sweetened condition of the soil in which the or ganism may be produced by the ad dition of lime, wood ashea or ex cessive amounts of manure. This accounts for the fact that more scab ia found in fields so treated. Oft times an old hedge that has been burned is marked for years by the few rows of scabby potatoes that grow in the area where the ashes were left. The application of sulphur was put on with the idea of creating an acid condition in the soil, which would discourage the scab bacteria. Schreiber Brothers used five hundred pounds per acre, broad casting after plowing and worked into the soil. Broad-casting would seem better than sowing in the row, because when drilled in, all the sulphur is in a very narrow strip, and the potatoes on either side arc not likely to be reached. These men applied sulphur to cobblers, and on the section where sulphur was applied they dug at the rate of 6 barrels of unsaleable po- Page 9 tutofs per acre, and where the ground was not treated, they dug twenty barrels of unsaleable potatoes per acre. Several other farmers of the coun ty are trying sulphur to fields that are producing scabby potatoes. Whether or not this sulphur treat ment will work in every case, is not known. It would not be surprising if some farmers did not receive fa vorable results. Certain conditions are necesary for the oxidization of the sulphur before it can tend to cause the soil to become acid. Thus it may be that better results will be secured the second year. However, the fact that sulphur has controlled scab in some sections makes the practice worth consideration. New Jersey fanners are also getting good results from the use of sulphur in the con trol of scab. A stranger drove up to Calamity Ed's farm a couple of weeks ogo, tied his horse and asked Calamity's kid where his dad was. "Pay's down in the hawg barn," answered the kid; "you'll know him. He's got a hat on.
