visitor.-.' scores. Harry Craig was the
batting star of the .fame with a home
iun poke over the left field fence
and Rockwell was able to secure a
three hr.girer off of one of the slants
-f Mr. McCerd.
The first inning was without re
sult in the way of scoring and the
start looked like a real hall frame but
the Son found the weak spot of the
Iowa aggregation in the second and
tallied twice. Ilerold opened the in-j-ing
with a grounder to third and
was out at the initial station. Rock
well opened the excitement by smash
ing the pi!l to the center field fence
for a three bagger and was followed
by Beesley with a safety to the cen
ter garden that brought Rocky home
with the first run of the game. Huff
struck out. Dyke hit to third where
the bail was muffed and Reesley scor
ed while Dyke was safe at first, but
did not go any farther as Ciaig
struck out.
In the third th? Iowa lads gathered
in run. G. Rarkus. opening the inninc
was safe at first on an trror by
Reesley at short and the two succeed

hit of Mc ord ever short. Rurkus
scored the opening run for Malvern.
The fourth again was a lucky ses

over the second tally rn a combina

field and was followed by L. Rarkus
with a drive to the left garden which
brought in the lond de-sired run by

for the Sox as they added three more
to their growing list of scores due to
a number of ei rors perpetrated by
the demoralised Iowa aggregation.
Crt the first man up hit to left
fiebi for two bags but was put out
while trying to pilfer third base.
Real was able to get on by McCord
dropping his fly and later scored on
the hit of Ilerold to left field. I'ar
riott wa- safe on a drive to third
base and both Purriott and Ilerold
scored when Rockwell drove a hot

more of the crimson hosed warriors
rattled over the plate. Huff, as the
first man up, was retired on a
grounder to second base and followed
by Dyke who was out on a grounder
te- first. Craig then proceeded to open
things up with a fine drive over the
left field fence for a homer. Beal fol
lowed with a hot one to third that
was thrown away by the fielder. Par
riott hit to third and was safe on a
wild heave to first and on which Beal
rame home. Smith closed the inning
with a grounder to shortstop.
In the seventh the locals again
lallied. Ilerold was retired on a fly
catch in left field and was followed
by Rocky who picked out a nice one
and pasted it for a safe hit to right
field and scored when Reesley hit to
right garden for a safety, but Bee

to stretch the three bagger into a
home run. Huff was the last out on a
grounder to McCord.

Mayor and Mrs. John P. Sattler of
this city, has become one of the mem
bers of the American army now as
sembled on the Mexican border. Al
bert enlisted in the Oklahoma Na
tional Guard on June 22, and is at
piesent stationed near Brownville,
Tex., to look after the work of patrol
ing the border. The news of the en
listment of the young man was quite
a surprise to the family and friends
in this city as the first intimation of
his intenton to become one of the
soldier boys was when a card was
received from the border where he
has been for the past few weeks. The
young man is showing the true spirit
of Americanism and proposes to as
sist in the defense of the Old Flag.

Another Serious Automobile Accident
in Which Both Cars Were
Badly Injured.
Another very serious automobile
accident occurred yesterday morning
on the main road just south of the
home of Charles E. Cook and result
ed in considerable damage to the big
Studebaker car belonging to Thede
Amick and a Buick Six-roadster from
South Auburn, Neb. Mr. Amick had
started out with a party consisting
of Anton and John Toman, Henry
Brinkman, Anton Hasson, Frank
Ashenbrenner and James Newasek,
and they were intending to drive to
the farm home of John Warga, some
four miles south of the city on the
Reck Bluffs road. As the car of Mr
.Amick was traveling south on the
main road near the Cook place, they
were caught by the car from Auburn
owned by a man named Tom Court
ney and the whole rear of the Amick
car suffered a great deal of damage
will total close to $300 to repair. The
differential, brake rod and the rear
spring on the right hand side of the
car were broken and will take a great
deal of time and money to place in
good shape. The car from Auburn
was in very bad shape as a result of
the encounter and the whole right
side of the machine was battered up.
The front fender was bent back al
most double, both of the front springs
were broken, the lamp on the right
hand side of the car bent and an ex
tia tire which was fastened on the
right hand side of the machine had
had a large hole torn in it and this
will total quite a neat sum of money
before it can be replaced. The car
from Auburn which was of the road
ster type had two men and two ladies
in it and was coming at a good rate
of speed eastward when it struck the
car of Mr. Amick and the only won
der is that some of the party were
not killed or badly injured as a re
sult of the mixup. The car was com
ing at such a rate of speed that it
tipped the heavy car of Mr. Amick's
cn one side and after being almost
demolished continued on quite a dis
tance across the road ana into a
i fence. A number of those witnessing
the accident state that had the Au
burn car not struck the machine of
Mr. Amick they woud certainly have
been thrown into the fence as the car
was going at a rate that made turn
ing the corner almost impossible and
the occupants seemingly not aware
that they would have to turn into tha
r.cith or south at this point. Both
machines were brought in and placed
in the Amick garage to undergo re
pairs. The loss to both automobiles
will easily reach $500 and possibly

On Wedneday and Thursday at the
Airdome will be shown "The Aveng
ing Conscience," a feature in six reels
which will be presented by an all star
cast including Henry B. Walthal
Blanche Sweet. Soottiwoode Atken
and this mysterious and masterfu
picture drama has been acclaimed one
of the greatest of that master genius
D. W. Griffith. The play is taken
from Edgar Allen Poe's "The Telltale
Heart" and "Annabel Lee" and is a
stirring play. The story of the play is
as follows:
"The Avenging Conscience" is
drama of the mind, completely visua
lized throughout and with a thorough
ly connected story. Though it deals
with the penence inflicted upon a mur
derer by his own conscience, this pen
ance is so personified that the result
is a very graphic narrative. This is
brought about by the use of some ex
traordinary photographic effects
which show the dead man returning to
haunt the living murderer, who
imagines, among other things, that he
can hear the heart of the dead man
still beating. "The Avenging Con
science" was suggested by Edgar Al
len Poe's famous story "The Telltale
Heart" (which contains the idea o
the murderer listening to the heart
beats of the man he killed- and by
Poe's famous poem of "Annabel Lee.
The plot follows: A baby boy has
been left to the care of his uncle, after
his mother's death. This uncle raises
the boy with the greatest care, hoping
that he will develop into a literary
jrenius. The uncle's ambitions for the
young man seems about to be realised
when the youth becomes infatuated
with a young woman, who reciprocates
his love to such an extent that they
are completely wrapped up in each
other. When the girl, "Annabel,
comes to take the young man to ;
garden party, the uncle insults her by
saying that she is pursuing his nephew
"like a common woman of the town.'
As a result of the uncle's interference.
the young people finally decide to sep'
Now come black and revengefu
thoughts to the mind of the young
man. Only that day he has been read
ing "The Telltale Heart" and some of
Poe's poems. He thinks of the happi
ness that he and his sweetheart might
have if only his uncle were out of the
way. With all the skill of Poe's char
acter in "The Telltale Heart," he
forms his plan to slay his uncle.
It is then that the saving grace of
conscience demonstrates its power.
How the avenging conscience in this
case operates and how its influence
in a mysterious manner, is used to
prevent a terrible tragedy, can better
be told by pictures itself. It seems as
if Conscience were God's way o
shielding mortals from fatal sin.
The subtle working of the inner
conscience, beyond the power of men
tal control, finds expression in the
weird visions that torture the cul
prit's brain. Avenging thoughts, such
as Poe might have conceived, are
made real to the quaking youth. Re
lentless fate seems to drive him to
despair until
But the end is the mot unexpected
part of all and shows that suffering
may teach virtue, that even the dark
est cloud may have its lining of silver
though the existence of that silver
lining has been entirely unsuspected.
