A soft track at Crolghton on the

ahead of the passenger , so that It
might , tlx the rails before the regular

Gossip of Football.
There are now only four contenders
for championship honors in the west.
Last Saturday's contests leaves Min
neapolis , Chicago , Michigan and
Northwestern still in the fluid. How
ever , it does not seem likely that
Northwestern will win out as she had
a very narrow escape with Illinois.
Wisconsin also claims a look In but
is not regarded as being serious. The
Chicago Tribune has the following
.solution of the situation :
"If Chicago beats Michigan nnd
Wisconsin defeats Minnesota nnd
Northwestern , Chicago will ho the
only unbeaten team. If Michigan
beats Wisconsin and Chicago nnd WIs
conaln wins its two big games , Mich
ignn will bo the only team with a
clenr record. If Minnesota heats Wis
consin. Michigan heats Chicago , and
Wisconsin heats Michigan and North
western , Minnesota will bo the lead
er. If Northewstern beats Wisconsin ,
Wisconsin beats Minnesota and Mich
igan , and Michigan beats Chicago ,
Northwestern can claim first honors.
This last looks like a long shot , but
those four nro the only possibilities
for any team to show a score sheet
unmarred by defeat. An unbroken
scries of victories for Wisconsin , with
u defeat for ( . 'hlrago on Thansglvlng
day , would give Curtis' team a chance
to claim llrHt rank. Other comhlnn-
tloim of deefulH and victories would
roimlt In various ties. "

Removal of Roundhouse Would
Relieve Crossing.
By a Shifting of the Switching Yards
by the Railroad Company the Train
Crews Would be Greatly Aided In
Work and the City Relieved.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
"Now that the old roundhouse has
burned down and another must bo
constructed. " snld n. business man to
day In spcnklng of the flro at the
Union Pacific yards , Thursday night ,
"why wouldn't It bo a most opportune
moment for the railroad' company to
so arrange their switching tracks that
the crossing over Norfolk avenue may
not need to bo blocked with cars and
engines so constantly hereafter ? "
For years and years the railroad
crossing over Norfolk avenue has boon
n plnco of much notion with the rail
road cars nnd switch engines and it
has often boon cause for comment
that so few accidents have thus for
happened. It is a dangerous place for
persons coining nnd going cither walk
ing or driving and the Incessant travel
nlonir this avenue Is no doubt onuallv
disturbing to the railroad crows who
are trying to work.
By a shifting of the roundhouse to
some out of the way spot the tracks
could also bo moved about and the
trains could bo made up and kicked
about Indiscriminately with neither
danger to human llfo nor inconven
ience to passers-by.
The company will without doubt re
place the hurned building with a mod
ern brick structure. The ono which
burned was old nnd dry and rather too
small , anyway , to accommodate all of
the engines which must of necessity
headquarter under its roof.
The lack of pressure upon the water j
during the fire was caused by the fact
that someone hnd entered the building
before the fire got much headway ,
and had turned on the hydrant inside ,
letting it run during the flro and tak
ing a great deal of force off the stream
which came from the hose.
The firemen stayed at the building
for flvo hours , never quitting until
11:30 : o'clock.
Lo Uoy Leach of Wood Lake , our
county surveyor nnd candidate for
re-election , gave an exhibition of his
skill with tlio rifle Wednesday after
noon In the presence of a largo crowd
a little north of the Episcopal church
snys the Valentino Republican. Mr.
Loach holds the world's champion
ship for rille shooting at Hying tar
gets , having twice beaten the record
made by Adolph Topervein of San
Antonio , Texas , who hit SOfi out of
n possible 1,000 Hying targets , throe
Inches in size at a dlstanco of eight
On August 2 , 100 ! ! , at Wood Lake
Mr. Leach broke OflO ono and three-
fourths inch targets at a dlstanco often
ton feet and on October M. 190 ; ! ,
ho made the unsurpassable record of
1,000 out of a possible 1,000 at a dis
tance of twenty foot , accomplishing
this wonderful feat In forty minutes.
While in his shooting here he did
not equal his former records owing
to the unfavorable condition , there
being a rathqr strong gusty wind dur
ing the entire afternoon , yet ho did
some excellent shooting , the most
skillful that has ever boon witnessed
bore. Had the wind been lighter ho
doubtless would have equalled some
of his previous records. As it was
ho hit 95 out of 100 targets at the
commencement of the shoot and af
ter having hit all sorts of objects , in
cluding pennies , small rubber balls ,
short shells , pins , souvenirs , pocket
mirrors , match heads and lead pen
cils ho concluded the exhibition by
hlttiift 211 targets out of a possible
211 at distances ranging from ten to
sixty feet. Ho also made several
doubles on double targets and several
doubles on single tnrgets nnd hit n
small tin can four times while in
the air. A bullet was driven through
a rubber tube the si/.o of the bullet ,
hold In the hand of a boy. and ho
exploded a 22 shell , striking it on
end at twenty-five feet. The most re-
mnrknblo font wns the hitting of
three ordinary brass pins thrown In
the nlr. Mr. Leach says he had never
tried this before and has never heard
of anyone else attempting such a
shot. He uses a repeating rifle with
solid ball nnd shoots off hand.
Besides his reputation as the
world's champion rifle shot Mr.
Loach Is a clover writer and has a
national reputation as the author of
Orl/el , a classic poetical legend , of
which there have been throe editions
published. Ho has also written a
novelette entitled Don Homoro , a
Mexican romance.
