Last Friday- "afternoon the McCook

teams met on the Hedge field to con
test for the honors of tbe game.

and a forward pass made a touch down
and kicked goal. Red Cloud kiokeH
off 'to McCook and the latter made a
few gains, after whloh McCook pulled
off an illegal play, the ball was taken
back and they were given another
They thon made a forward pass and
brought tho ball to Red Cloud's three
yard line, where the referee ordered
oue of the Red Cloud players out of
the game for rough playing. After
spending an hour chewing the rag the
Red Cloud players lined up to play
without the foresaid player and the
referee blew his whistle, but the Mc
Uook team refused to play. Thus they
forfeited the game.
In the estimation of mnny the Mo-
Conk team did not play any cleaner
game than the local boys and some of
those from out of town, who were in
attendance, who saw tbe McCook team
play at Oberllu, Kansas, a few weeks
ago ulalin that they attempted to Dull
off the same dirty tactics there that
they, did here
Those who paid to see this game can
see the game today by culling at the
Powell & Pope Cafe, where a tree
ticket will be given them.
The Alnsley team which has not
been defeated this year will meet the
Red Cloud boys on tbe local gridiron
this afternnou and it is to b. hoped
that there will bo a large crowd pres

secured to ofllc'ate at this game.

THE ACTUELLE-a Pathe Freres In
ventionmarks the first really radical
advance ip the science ot sound repraduction
since sound recording was invented.
The result achieved u a natural purity of
tone which would have been beyond belief
less than twelve months agn.
Now comes the real revolutionary ad
vanceand again it is the Pathe organizat
ion that has won out with the Actuelle.
Exit Sound Box, Tone Arm, Horn
The problem of the phonograph maker.is to take out of
the way of the tone obiticals wjiich affect the reproduction
in a.lesser way. The tone box, the tone arm, the tone
chamber and horn are in the way. The ACTUELLE dis
cards all the obstacles.. A taunt wire carries the tone di
rect from the record to a parchament cone which amplifies .
and reproduces the tone in its natural, vivid vigor, with a
tull lidelity tnat no pnonograpn couia ever equal.
