Mrs. Clark lb away from home, and on
Christmas night Henry itivlted a few
of his gentleman f i inds to his home
for a social game of whi-t. Sometime
near the bewitching hour of midnight
there came a hurried knock at the
front door of the Clark residence. Mr.
Clark answered the summons, and was
confronted by a frightened neighbor
lady, who br athlessly informed him
that "something awful" was .taking
place in his barn. With virions of
horsethioves and kindrod midnight
visitors, Mr. CI irk hastily lighted a
lantern and, followed at a safe dit
tanco by his Ruett, proceeded can
tiously to hisbirn. Tho glaro of tho
lantern revciled n wHderneis of de
struction. Tho bronco had olimbed
over the uiungor, nnd thin kkked it
into kindling wood; a largo feed box
had suffered tlm same ft to, and a cook
stove, which had boon htored in t'ho
spaco usually occuplod by a buggy,
was boing rapidly reduced to scrap
iron when tho risouiug party appeared

The football gamo Christmas day
between Red ("loud and McCook re
su'.t"d in no score. The game was
close and exciting from the start to the
finish, nnd at no time was eithor goal
in danger. Most of the playing was
neartbo center of the field and in Mo
Cook's territory. It seemed .almost
impossible for tho backs to get around
tho ends with tho hall, and tho. only
good gain on cither sido was niauo by
Lane when ho wont around McQuok's
right end for fifteen yards, licilgo
ko through tbo lino in tho last (half
only time a touchdown looked possible
was in the second half, when Red
Cloud bad forced McCook back to the
20-yard line, but Le Hew punted the
ball out of danger, and the game soon
t n I ed with the ball uear the center of
the field, iq McCook's territory. The
McCook team was much lighter than
the home' team, but was able to prevent
Red Cloud making important gains.
Oaring to the bad weather the attend
