Plans for the home-coming celebration,
which was proposed by the local press
couple of weeks ago, are beginning to
take tangible form. The provisional
committee appointed at that time have
Had a meeting at which the following
resolution was introduced and unanim
ously passed: Resolved, That it is
the sense of this committee that
the proposed celebraton know as Home
Coming Week' to be held in this city,
meets with the approval of this com
mittee, provided features of entertain
ment be coupled with the celebration.
We therefore commend that for the
purpose of securing the sentiment of
our citizens generally upon the sub
ject, that a public meeting be called
by the chairman on Tuesday evening,
August 22, at 7:.10 o'clock, at the
council chamber." Edgar Howard
and family, who spent last week at a
similar celebration held at Glenwood,
Iowa, report that they had a great
time there, meeting old-time friends,
who hail been gone for many years,
and who had been attracted to the old
hu,ir.e once more by the prospect of
meeting the friends, the schoolmates
and playmate of by-gone days. Let
everybody turn out to the council
chamber next Tuesday evening and
start the ball rolling with an energy
tha will allow no chance of disap
pointment to anybody.

SAVAGES OF ASIA.
The Untamed Chites of Tibet Are
Idolaters and Cannibals.
MURDER IN THEIR RELIGION.
At Their Wild Ceremonies the Priests
of These Barbarians Offer Up Hu
man Sacrifices to Their Grotesque
and Repulsive Stone Gods.
A religious festival by a savage tribe
of Asia, in whk-h occurred a human
sacriflce and the burning of the victim
on a funeral pyre, is described by Wll
liam Jameson Held in his book, "Unex
plored Asia." The rites were held in a
place called Chlte City, Tzucban
which was reached after a hazardous
Journey through the Ping mountains.
"Let me give a brief history of this
strange race, who for centuries have
defied the most persistent research of
explorers and ethnologists. Many cen
turies ago. in the vicinity of Shanghai,
there lived a highly enlightened race
known as the Chites. They were the
most fanatical and bigoted Buddhists,
so fanatical, in fact, that their turbu
lent spirits and eacer desire to sow the
seed of prosclytisin caused frequent
revolutionary disturbances. The gov
ernment, as its only means of salva
tion, made war on them. For years the
Chites battled against overwhelming
odds until at last, their numbers fear
fully reduced, they gradually retired to
the west, settling here and there, only
to be again driven back. After years
of wanderings they located in the wild
mountain nylon of northwestern Tibet.
"For untold centuries they have held
entirely aloof from their more civilized
Chinese neighbors, and today they are
as untamed and barbarous as were
their fierce ancestors. Many of them
are savajres of the worst degree; even
cannibalism is said to be prevalent
among many of them. They acknowl
edge no allegiance to the emperor, en
tirely ignore the authority of the man
darins and hold no communication
with the outside world. Yet we have
visited their wild domain; we have
penetrated into their stronghold and
have witnessed their strange customs.
"It had been our intention to steal
Into the city under cover of night, but
from our position of vantage we could
see that some religious demonstration
was in progress, and we did not dare
to move. For half an hour our guides
(natives) crawled out on the plain and
returned with the Information that
they had discovered a considerable
cave in the hillside to the left of the
town, which would screen us from ob
servation and at the same time permit
us to watch the movements of those
inside the walls. We had just time to
reach our place of concealment when
the leaders of the procession entered
the narrow orifice and halted while
torches were being lit to guide their
passages through the gathering gloom.
Following them pressed the unkempt
crew, until the interior of the dome
shaped cave was filled to the point of
"For half an hour the ear torturing
strife of discord waxed louder at every
moment until a hundred devils in hu
man form flitted beneath the flare of
flickering torches. A frenzied enthusi
ast would leap into the air. lacerating
himself with a knife, grasping the gory
strip of flesh and grinding It under his
heel, or taunting a neighbor Into the
spirit of emulation by flaunting before
his eyes the ghastly piece of flesh. Sud
denly from out the compact mass rose
a howl of mingled anguish and fury,
and a solitary Individual mounted a
sort of platform and stretched forth
his hand. Evidently he was a high
priest. Instantly there was silence.
The light of the torches enabled us to
see the man who had mounted the plat
form. He was a tall, gaunt individ
ual. All his right side was naked, and
his face was covered with gaping rents
of knife wounds, from which blood
"A garment of coarse cloth covered
his body below the waist Soon we
saw fivo others follow him upon the
platform, which was of raised earth.
In a recess In the wall at the rear of
the platform one could see the dis
torted form of a gigantic Image a
stony, impassive figure of such gro
tesque ugliness that one could not help
wondering how a race of people, how
ever unenlightened, could bring them
selves to worship an object of such re
pulslveness. "At last a fearful moment was at
hand. An old man was seized and
stretched upon a sort of stone altar,
raised above the platform. He realized
his last hour had come, and he strug
gled in fear and fury to escape from
the grasp of his captors, giving vent
to shriek after shriek until, exhausted.
he fell into a stupor. Four of the
priests helJ the faintly struggling
body, while from the gloom stalked
forth the sacrificial priest, his hand
holding a long knife. Once, twice,
thrice he abased himself before the
Image, and then, turning round like a
beast ready to leap upon Its prey, he
rushed toward the prostrate form. A
flash of light and the keen blade sank
to the hilt in the flesh of the victim.
"Three times did the worshipers on
the floor rise and abase themselves,
and then quickly the minor priests
seized the lifeless body and held It In
the air. For a moment It silhouetted
against the fitful glare of the fire; then
the flames leaped forward In eager
ecstasy to receive their prey."

at Thinking of Present
Day Ball Players.
A person might think that after
eight or ten years of ball playing it
would be a hard matter to pick oat
the greatest play a fellow ever saw,
but it isn't I remember perhaps half
a dozen plays: Mordecai Browm'a
stop' and throw that saved a game for
us In the series against the White
Sox for the world's championship;
Fred Clarke's catch in the crowd that,
I think, beat us out of the pennant in
1909; the running Jump by Germany
JOHN J. EVERS.
Sckaefer that robbed us of the open
ing, game of the first world's series
against Detroit, and a lot of others
but Jimmy Sheckard made the play
that I think was the greatest I ever
saw,aand one perhaps I never will see
At that. It wasn't a showy play, and
I doubt if a hundred persons in the
big crowd that saw the game realized
what a wonderful piece of playing It
was. He did it ao easily that to most
of the spectators it looked as if the
runner had blundered, and they did
not give Sbeck credit for his work.
The play happened in one of the
games against New York in 1908
when we were fighting them all
through the season for the lead and
the pennant It was on the Chicago
grounds, and I believe during the June
series. We were ahead two runs in
the lead, I think, and the game was
nearing an end, when a single and
Doyle's two-bagger put men on second
and third with no one out, and it
looked pretty bad. The crowd was
on the field, and near the stand In left
flld had cut in onto fair ground, 60
that a long fly was likely to drop in
there any minute and turn the whole
game upside down. The batter, Sey
mour. I think it was, hit a hard line
fly about ten feet inside the foul line
and straight toward that crowd.
Sheckard was playing the batter
perfectly, and by a hard sprint he
reached the ball just as it was going
into the crowd and made one of the
prettiest catches of the season. He
couldn't stop short after catching the
ball but plunged on into the crowd
until he was almost out of sight. The
runner on third base, of course, had
held his position, and when he saw
Sheck mixed up with the crowd he
started for the plate. Sheckard
leaped clear of the crowd and took a
long swing with his arm and cut
loose the ball. But instead of throw
lag to the plate he changed the direc
tion of the throw while his arm was
swinging and shot the ball on the line
fast and straight Into Stelnfeldt's
hands. Doyle had seen Sheckard's
arm swing and was fooled into be
lieving that he was throwing to the
plate, so he came sprinting to third
and Stelnfeldt met him and tagged
him out, of course letting the runner
score from third.. Sheokard bad fig
ured in a fraction of an Instant that
he could not get dear of the crowd in
time to catch the runner at the plate,
and that if he threw there Doyle
could trot te third and probably score
en a fly or hit, whereas If he caught
Doyle and Jet the other run count tae
bases would be cleared with two out
and Chicago still eae run ahead.
So, pretending and going through
every motion ef 'throwing to the plate,
he shot to thir and saved the game.
After Doyle was caught the next two
batters made hits, and if Sheckard.
