Cabool Noses Oat In Tenth Inning Wild base throwing by Crouch, substituting behind the bat for Brasher, lost the game Sunday to Cabool, 6 to 5. At that, the Grays made Cabool travel ten innings to win. Owens pitched a much better game than Havens and should have won by a wide margin. The Grays put up an excellent game, and witli their regular catcher on the job, the Cabool team is outclassed. No less than three of Cabool's runs were gifts duo to wild throws by Crouch. T Batteries Cabool: Haven and Hamilton; Mansfield: Owens and Crouch. Norwood is Overwhelmed. With a makeshift line up, and using recruit pitchers most of the tiino, Mansfield defeated Norwood, Monday, : by a score of 19 to 9. Two young pitchers Strong iind D.

They will -be used by the Grays against tho weaker teams this season, and with careful coaching, they should bo ready for regular mound duty next year. Batteries Strong, D. Dennis, .

Mansfield Mirror, Dear Mr. Davis: - "The Foul Broml.or Bee .Pest" is spreading out in Wright and adjoining counties, This disease is the most destructive to bee colonies. It starts in an apiary without noise, and it frequently happens that whole colonies be come infected before the owner realizes that disease is present The bee keeper may attribute tho losses observed to some oth er causes, -In this way, the d is ease gets a start, making eradi cation difficult when once the cause of the loss has been dis covered. In view of the widespread dis tribution of the diseases, it is most desirable that all bee-keep ers learn to distinguish the dis eases when they appear, and to know how to keep them under control. There are two infectious dis eases of the brood of bee, now known as American Foul Brood, and European Foul Brood. Both diseases weaken colonies by re ducing tho number of emerging bees needed to replace the old adult bees, which die from natu ral or other causes. If the beo keeper opens a hive that is diseased, a very charac teristic and unusually penetrat ing odor is often noticeable, of the decaying brood. American Foul Brood can perhaps best be liked to tho odor of heated glue While European Foul Brood can best be likened to a sour odor, which reminds one of yeast fer mentation. ' Treatment: Take all of the adult bees out of the diseased hive, and transfer same into a new hice. The aim of the man i nutations is to romovo or de stroy all of the bacteria (bacillus larvae). It should be reinem bered to stop the further spread of the disease by removing all material capable of transmitting the cause of the trouble. In all of the operations great pains should bo taken not to spread the disease through carelessness Now, then, all of you "bee friends", be on the watch, and help to stop tho distribution of these diseases. I am always to your advice, and close in the re spect of tho welfare of beo cul turo. Yours truly, Aug. Oetting Hicks. Rain is needed in this settle ment. Grandma Casida is very low.
