ly did the right thing by Franklin
when her ball team came up Friday.
A special was chartered and a little
over l.VI people came up with their
nine, and that wasn't all. The big
band came with them, over twenty
strong and superbly uniformed in red
suits. I'pon reaching the city they
marched in procession to the grounds
and pretty nearly made it a Ued Cloud
day. Preceding the speaking in the
afternoon their baud discoursed some
most excellent music and later led
their followers to the ball park, and
an enthusiastic crowd it was. It
swelled our admissions thus day till it
almost equalled the banner day of re
ceipts. Franklin will surely have a
warm spot in her heart for Red Cloud.
The game was a fast one and was nip
and tuck to; the. end, Franklin finally
winning. The one marring discord in
the whole thing was the chagrin of
Burroughs (and others) because, they
could not fire oft" that load of rockets
and torches which they had brought

A MESSAGE FROM MARS.
His Proof That the Planet Was Inhab
ited and Civilized.
Kbenezer was driving his master's
plow straight and true, but none the
less with a thoughtful air. as though
his thoughts were elsewhere. And so
they were; they were soaring far
aloft above the plow and the brown
eat Ih 'turned up as to reach Mars.
The previous evening Iibenezer had
attended u lecture at the village school
room on "The Heavens," and what tho
lecturer had said about Mars being In
habited profoundly impressed Fben
ezcr. As he mechanically guided his
horses and his plow something struck
him suddenly on the head, and ho
dropped senseless to the ground. A
balloonist passing overhead had acci
dentally dropped an empty whisky bot
tle upon Kbenezor's fortunately thick
skull. When he recovered conscious
ness the balloon had passed out of sight,
but the cut on his head and the blood
stained bottle at his feet remained.
Ebonozcr gasped In amazement and
awe us he gazed all around the wide
brown fields and the blue sky above.
Then he picked up the bottle and
Htnelled at It and at once deserted his
team in great excitement nnd set off
postliaste for the vicarage.
"I inun tell vicar Mars be 'uablted
right enough," he muttered. "Civil
ized, too; they drinks whisky." Lou

How Flat Watches T(k Place of the
Old Time "Turnips."
When the neat man takes unto him
self a watch as thin as parchment he
little thinks that that thin watch re
sults from army regulations.
Up to the time of the allies taking
Paris the ordinary watch was convex
In shape and called from its outline a
"turnip." The officers of the Russian
and other armies objected to this be
cause Its bulbous form made the mil
form of a man on parade look untidy,
whether It were carried In the coat or
the fob. In Paris, however, they found
that the watchmakers of the Palais
Royal had contrived a chronometer
which got over the dllllculty.
Flat watches were the fashion In
Paris. The English when they ap
peared In the streets of the French
capital inarched In not In gala dress
such as the others wore, but In the
raiment which they had worn on cam
paign. Great was the Impression
which their habiliments created, but
they at once adopted the smart flat
watch and brought it back to England
