'The only way can account for the food running short was that the boys either threw it away or the officers in charge of the distribution gave them more at first than they could eat.

"After the first few trains had left for the border the War department officials anticipated that there might be a congestion of traffic in the southwest and ordered that all troops be given 10 days' travel rations and five days' garrison rations, which was done. I can't understand how there could have been any shortage on any of these trains. DECLARES EXTHADlYlOEND Pittsburg. July 21.

How many persons bought booze in the tent is not known but it was not doing business very long. Three and four policemen are on duty at the Fair Grounds and there is very little disorder of any kind going on.

Burglars attempted to enter the home of Mrs. Mary Deible, 318 Crescent Park, night before last. The family was aroused and the burglars frightened away. Beginning on next Monday the Warren Times will introduce to its readers a new feature in the shape of a humorous column written by Arch Bristow-. the author of "That Garland News Letter." which has grown famous throughout this section of the country. Bristow is a cartoonist in the employ of the Adams Newspaper Syndicate. of New York. His pictures appear daily in some IS 2 newspapers all over the United States, and in several Canadian papers. He draws the "Zinv mie and Lizzie" series, a stunt that has been running in the public press eight years. It is now seen by not less than four million newspaper readers each day. The modern newspaper syndicates make possible such immense audiences. The tendency of the newspaper of today is all toward syndicate features and most of the artists and writers employed by these concerns live where they like. It is unnecessary for them to tie down to any particular spot on the map, so long as they are on a fast mail route to headquarters, which is usually New York. Bristow has been living in Garland for several years past and has amused himself by writing for various INSANE MAN SHOOTS FOUR PERSONS IN NEWARK STREET After the Shooting Man Set Fire to His Own Clothing Newark, N.

Then he ran to the other side of the house and Sred at a crowd which had gathered there, but all these shots went wild. The flames from the inventor's clothing set fire to the house. A woman and her five year old son were rescued by firemen just in time to escape death. Before the fire started there was an explosion of a bomb in the locksmith shop. The police beleive Castronova touched a match to the fuse just before he fired his clothing. Beside the body of Castronova a shot gun and the four revolvers were found. papers a rural news letter. He also done considerable short story writing for the magazines. illustrating his own stories with pen drawings. The Garland News Letter has been quoted by the great dailies east and west, the Chicago Tribune recently reprinti ing an entire poem from it. Bris'j tow's skill as a writer is conceded to surpass his ability with a pencil, and j he is quite handy with a pencil, at jthat. His writing has a peculiar charm thai is all its own. His humor I is rare, and altogether spontaneous. His rural items, written without too much regard for facts, have built up I such a reputation that scarce a day j passes but some traveler pulls up in I his automobile in Garland to make inquiries about "the man who writes the Garland News Letter. Last week the Jamestown Trade Boosters, in their automobile tour of this seci tion. visited Bristow's studio in Garland in full force. Beginning with next Monday Bristow will do a daily column for the Warren Times. His writing will appear exclusively in this paper. It is not often that a paper in a town the 'size of Warren can secure the excluisive services of a man of Arch tow's wide experience and reputation. LOCAL POLICE LOOKING FOR MAN WANTED FOR SERIOUS OFFENSE Italian Attempted to Murder Murder American at Mayburg <_nief of Police Haag this morning received a telephone message from Sheriff Clark, of Tionesta. to be on the lookout for James Fantier. an Italian, who is wanted by Forest county authorities to answer to a charge of attempted murder. Fantier is described as being about 40 years of age. five feet four in height and when last seen he had a black mustache. Last Tuesday night Fantier in company with a number of other men employed in the lumber woods, attended a Polish wedding at Mayburg. and during the course of the festivities. Fantier became intoxicated and started out to look for trouble. He picked fights with several of the wedding guests who would not accommodate him. but when he ran up against Claude Davis. an American, he found his match, and when Davis seemed to be getting the best of the encounter the Italian pulled a razor and started in to use it to the best advantage with the result that Davis received a cut on the top of the head that took sixteen stitches to close. Davis also received a number of cuts on different parts of his body. Fantier was badly banged up in the fight and v.'hen he left Mayburg Wednesday morning he told friends he was going to Sheffield to have his hurts attended to. The Sheffield police were unable to locate him and as yet the Warren officers have not been able to rind him. Davis was at first not thought to have been seriously injured but his condition has grown worse and it was decided to swear out a warrant charging the Italian with attempted murder. The crowd in attendance at this afternoon's racing matinee was rather light, the attendance being of the same proportions as on opening day. The number of autos parked Oft the grounds proved that few were present. Today is "get away" day and strings of horses were seen leaving the grounds and before nightfall practically all the racers will be on their way to the next meet. The bills for today had but few starters, many of the horses listed, being withdrawn. In the first event, the pace, but five horses faced the wire. In this event, Lady Finley finished first, Miss Washington. ond; Rose Keeler, third; Barnetta fourth and Directioneer, fifth. time of the mile was In the trotting event, a field had to be made to fill in this event and Mr. Higginson, the horses that won the trot on Tuseday toofe the first heat in good style, the time being Mary Mac was second. Betty Wiggins finished third and Frank McKay, the other horse in. this event, finished in fourth position. Frank McKay and Betty Wiggins were the only one on today's card to start. I Driving Little Frank D to victory by taking the last three of the six heats necessary to determine the 2 20 pace Thursday afternoon, L. Turner, the driver without hands, sent thrill after thrill coursing through the 500 persons present at the big day oC the Lake Erie Meeting here. Turner won without pushing" his horse, Ma best mile being The 2 the first .event of the afternoon, "and Tattle' Frank D was the favorite -from the -start selling 3 to 10. In the initial heat Brother James, a rank outsider, came under the wire first with Little Frank D trailing the field. The heat did not look good to the judges and they called all bets off. In addition er was taken out and Shackleton substituted as driver for his horse. In the second heat Shackletotf drove cleverly, but he did not knoilf the bay gelding as its owner and the) best he did was to finish fourth, white Little Peter Pointer, a 15 to 2 shot at the start of the race, rambled home an easy winner. Turner was again permitted to drive Little Frank D in the third on an appeal made to the When he drove his horse past tha stand previous to the scoring he was given an ovation, the crowd plainly showing where it had placed its sympathy, and also money. Turner had the lines wrapped round his elbows. His arms are gone two inches below the elbows. He couches the whip between what is left of his arms, but is unable to ply it very Several times on the stretches ha tickled the gelding with it, to good effect. Little Frank D almost took the third heat. He went into the lead early in the mile and held it through the race. In the last 100 feet Peter Pointer, driven by Mr. P. Turner, came up fast. He won by a nose. The award of the heat caused some critiicism due to the fact a person not directly opposite the wire would have thought Little Frank D the winner. The heat was paced in. THE REASONS WHY That pacer of mine would have won had he not broken his hobbles Would have won in a walk if he had not throwed a shoe. She could have stepped around the bunch like a cooper around a barrel if she hadn't broken a knee boot. Would have stepped a mile in i '2: 10 if he had not made a break on the first turn. Would have got the dough if that grey pacer had not got his foot in my bike wheel over on the back stretch. The next tliree heats were almost easy for Little Frank D. although ha took the fourth in no better than In the fifth the field moved up on him and he was compelled to show In the betting before the fourth heat Little Frank D waa even money and 2 to 4 for place. la the fifth heat he was 1 10 2 to win. and in the last 1 to 4. The last heat was close, as Little Peter Pointer again came up on the gelding and would likely have won in. another fifty feet. The race so Continued on Page Four) SUBMARINE TO LEAVE PORT Baltimore.
