Mrs. Julia Wcesner
(By Rcv7f MTBrulincr)
While nil nature was liusv decoratinc
herself in the gorgeous robes of autumn
lime, while birds were calling to their
males to nrenaro for tho loot ioumcv
to the southland, while the earth was
pulsating in rapture at the wooing of
tim sun, amidst the laughter of children
on the street, the sounds or toilers nt
their tasks, silently, but upon his
swiftest wing, the death angel flitted
through our beloved city and bore
away a neighbor and friend, and yonder,
beyond the realms of pain and weak-
ness and parting nnd death, the
beautiful, motherly, Christian spirit of
sister Julia Wcesner hns uonc. but
robed in white now, full of exuberant
life now, singing with that mighty
chorus now, whose sweet strains
readied her cars n few days ago, free
from pain nnd weariness and ema
ciation now, yes. just over vonder.
"Awake in his Likeness."
Mrs. Wcesner made no pretensions
to distinction in the larger affairs of
life, but wrought with faithful untiring
effort in her sphere to provide for the
needs and comfort of those she loved
dearest. She claimed not perfection,
but recognized and lived for a higher
goal as the years swtipt on. She carried
no hatred in her heart, and malice was
not born for her in the hearts of
o'thers: Her greeting was cheerful,
nerwisnes lor all was well. She was
faithful to her duties, devoicd to. her
family and' home, and recognized her
creator m ner lire. She had virtues
that others mitrht well covet, and
habits worthy! of, emulation, We shall
miss ner as we walk the streets, and
assemble in llie house of worship, but
we have cood around to hone and
believe that her life has passed into a
broader and more iovous realm, nnd
that she is looking out upon tho sun
rise of a blissful eternity.

B. C. Boys Were too Rough
On Filday afternoon tho Denver City
high school football team defeated tho
local Ii1h school team In a fist game,
by thcM'uru of U7 to 11.
Doth team-, weic on tho Held prompt
ly ut il'.llu aud ns before a coin was leas
ed for tho decision of the klckoir. Tho
hickoIY fell to Denver City, who kicked
to the fouity yaid lino, their oppon
ents carrying tho ball Imok to the
twenty yard line. Tlio home boys ti led
line suiiihlios aud mudo good galus and
thou tiyiug forwaid passes lost the
ball to Dearer City on an incompleted
pass. Deaver City made very llttlo or
no gains on Hue smashes aud also tiled
a pass which was caught by
Pope ami he went over the Hue for tho
first touchdown in just 10 minutes of
play. Paul Newhouhe kicked goal.
Deaver City then, ou a Hue end iuu
also made a touchdown and kicked
At llu end of the Hist quaiter the
people felt Confident that they would
see a good game of football the score
being 7 to 7. The second quaiter
started out with lleavor City aualn
having tho klckoif aud our boys went
right into tho game liko veterans anil
ou a good forward pass Pope' went
across the lino for another touchdown,
al6o kicked goal Deaver City being
seven points behind, thought it time I
time for them to start but in their
great hurry on of their men was 'off
aide" und referee Banalized
tbeUi 10 yards. This seemed to put
additional 'pop" itito their players
aud on a flue' end run secured auothcr
touchdown, this time they failed to
kick goal. Thescore being 15 to 14 at
tho close of tho first half, in favor of
Red Cloud.
But tho home boys were doomed to
dissuppolntment. Owing to an injury
to the ankle of Pope he was taken out
and Ullbei t put in his place. Although
very good gains were made by Druliner
Dlajkledge and 1'. Newhouso and the
playing of Provost was nothing short
of maiveloii!), they could make no
moio touchdowns.
The heaver City boys made two more
touchdowns, one each quarter, but It
was the opinion of the onlookers that
the last ono was not fair. TIo ball was
.mined by the. visitors on a fumble on
the pnrt of one of our players and our
boys thinking tint opponent with tho
ball was down, lot him up and he made
a tush for a touchdown, and owing to
tho fuet that the leferoe's whistle had
not blown it whs allowed.
