Probably the largest crowd ever seen at a ball game in Pike county was the Sunday «rowd when th^ Jasper team was here. The game was a warm one according to the fans. Twelve innings were played at the end of which the score was a tie, 2 and 2. Excitement was high throughout the game as the teams so evenly matched and played such good ball that it was in the air from the very start whose game it was. Base ball fever has gone op quite a few notches since the game. Some fifty or seventy-five autonnobile loads were here from Jasper and all wfre well pleased with the fj^me. The tie will be played off at Jasper on September 21st. Next Sunday the Princeton team will be here. Two times this season Princeton has trimmed the local team.

France is shown in Mack Sennett’s new five reel super-comedy to be shown at the Star theaitre. A young American, officer has disguised himself as a girl in order to find out the plans of the German office; he scemes to “vamp” the amorous Kaiser and finds the plans. When the All Highest is otherwise engaged, the supposed “girl” sneaks out into a balcony and wig-wags a rapid message to a scare crow standing crazily in the midst of a corn field. Suddenly the scare crow comes to life; wig-wags back a signal and sneaks away through the com field. It is understood that this device has actually been used in the field by the Yanks. August Burnett, a prominent yocqg man of Spurgeon, died Wednesday of last week after but a few days sickness of typhoid fever. He would have been 24 years old if he had lived until September. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Sim Burnett who live north-west of Spurgeon. He was a splendid young man who commanded the respect of every one who knew him. He went to school in Spurgeon and graduated from the school there. About four years ago he married Alda Tyring, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Tvring, who with the parents and many relatives and friends survive him. He had been working with his fatber-in-law on the farm during the spring and summer. He bad considerable trouble with his eyes and was not able, on' that account to pursue some studies he desired.

Sanders of Littles was instantly killed Saturday afternoon by a fall of slate in Dick Alexander’s country coal mine southwest of Petersburg.

He spent Sunday with his son Harry Troyer in Lockhart township and attended the home coming at Bethel church. Mr. Troyer was a resident of Lockhart towship for many years and comes back occasionally to meet old friends and neighbors. and four brothers, one of them being Jack Sanders of this city. The funeral service was held Tuesday from the family residence, the remains being taken to Petersburg for burial in Walnut Hills cemetery. uproriously funny Lytle Houchin, a resident of Oakland City, formerly of Arthur, was dangerously injured when he was struck by a west bound Southern freight at the Comer crossing Friday afternoon. In the car with him was his little daughter. She was thrown some distance but was only slightly injured. The train struck the car just as Houchin drove oif to the rails. Houchin was thrown from the car and then struck by the train. He was picked up by persons who saw the accident and taken immediately to the Methodist hospital in Princeton. His injuries consist of ^ broken collar bone, two broken ribs and internal injuries. He was also bruised and cut about the body. Word from the hospital is to the effect that he will probably recover. The automobile was completely wrecked. V Althouhg it is an comedy, it is said that one of the most accurate repreaetations of the Hohen-zollern family ever shown on the screen is in Mack Sennett’s new five-part super-comedy “Yankee Doodle in Berlin.” All the uniforms are actual war worn soldier clothes that were worn in battle. Ford Sterling, who takes the part'of the Kaiser spent several months on a study of the character of the All Highest. He also studied thousands of the photographs. The result is a make up so graphic that it would al most fool Mrs. Hoenzollern herself. Similar pains were taken by Mai St. Clair who takes the part of the Crown Prince and Bert Roach, as General Von Hindenburg and Baldy as Von Tirpit. At the Star Wednesday. Belmont Theatre V A hurnber of farmers east of town in Marion township met last week and worked a long stretch of road that has been a bad road for a long time. The work started a quarter of a mile west of Joe Gatton’s farm and worked east. They really worked and put the road through that section In fine condition. It had reached a point where the road was almost impassable but now a car can be driven through with perfect safety. At noon a big dinner waa spread by the ladies of which the hungry men partook with a relish. Under the law passed by the last legislatjure roads are not worked by the taxpayer by being warned out and in consequence the roads have received nothing this year. These farmers took the road into their own hands and worked it so that they can get to ,town with ease. Many neighborhoods need to profit by their example even though they do not feel like working their roads and then paying tiie cash for their road tax. But the people who must travel through such a community feel that tne spirit of enterase abounds there. Gilbert McCord, Bsaaager of the Grain Company li^ sent a team to belp the Marten tewwriiip farmers in their endeavor. Paralee Evans, one of Winslow best known ladies, died Friday about noon after an illness extending over several months. For about sixty years this had been her home. In that time she made many friends, many of whom she has seen pass over to the great beyond. Her maiden name was Crane. She was born May 18, 1846 in Harrisburg, Ky. When she was 14 years old her parents moved to Winslow. It was here her mother died and lies now in Oak Hills cemetery. March 24, 1862 she married Captain Nathan Evans while he was home from the army on a furlough. He came home at the close of the war and they settled down to a happy married life. Twenty years ago Captain Evans died. To them were bom six children, three of whom, Mrs. Laura Anderson who has been making her.home with the mother, Mrs. Harry Owens of Danville, 111. and Richard L. Evans of Texas survive. Soon after the death of her husband, ah^ united with the Methodist church to which faith she remained faithful until the end. Besides her children one sister. Mrs. Sallie Bee and a brother, John Crane of Texas, survive. Deceased waa one of the best known women of this town. She was always kind and pleasant and waa always considerate of others. She was a home body, her entire life having been spent with a view to making home a good place imhm. The community moume tíie deelA of a good woman In the cKiatb of “Aunt Paralee Evans. The funenl setvlea was held Sunday from the Hathodist ehunh, hr the pastor. Rev. D. W. Noble. B^al was in OaltftUt ^sHtity* Complimentary to Elmer Acheson. about 150 friends and neighbors gathered at the home of George T. Acheson and family Thursday evening and gave farewell party.

He will remain with his brother until the balance of the family joina him after the sale next Thursday. At the close of a pleasant evening spent conversation Ihe Woodmen, presented Elmer with a fine sweater coat. He has been in poor health and appreciated the gift very much. We are sorry to lose Achesons from the community as are fine people any community may well be proud of. They have rented their farm to John Thompson. Labor had the right of way in Winslow Monday when the entire community joined with the various local United Mine Workers unions in celebrating Labor day. The entire day was put in celebrating. A monster parade waa staged early in the morning in which many miners rode mine mules and in which were several floats. The band headed the parade. William MitcK. secretary-treasurer of district 11, delivered a splendid address in the forenoon at the old Young grove. In the afternoon a band concert waa held, the main feature of which waa the singing of Fred Monroe and the cornet solo work of Fred Benton. A number of athletic contests were staged in the afternoon and a ball game between Muren and Winslow teams was staged at Riverside park. Winslow won the game, the score being 4 to 1. Each team had some star players. Another speaker was expected for the afternoon but at the last moment telegraphed he could not get away. The crowd waa estimated at two thousand people. It was a superb body of men gathered to-jrether to celebrate the trinmph of labor. Secretary Mitch paid a splendid tribute to the miners of this community when he said they were as a whole a very fine body of men, represelitative of the ^eat canse of labor. ’ During the afternoon a small bat wild pig which had been greased was tamed loose in the field north of the park and several boys, all under twelve, went after his hogship, the one catching hint to have him for his prize. Heber Sharp succeeded in winning the Inekjr prize. He caught him by thé' ear and leg and put him under his aun. Labor nniona participating in the celebration were the teamstera of Petersborg.
