FOUND THE - RIGHT CREEK
Aathor of s Story About "llell-Fei-
Sartaln" Qoea to See h
John Fox, Jr., one wrote a story called
''Hell-fer-Sartaln," which so he says-
mad him' famous..' Though there really Is
a Heil-rer-Sartaln creek down In the Ken
tucky mountains, the writer -of, the. story
had not been there until recently, when he
set out to repair the omission.
"There, was a church en Hell-fr-8ar-taln,"
writes Mr. Fox In Scrlbner'a, ''and
I had heard there was a Sunday school
known ufflcU'.!)- cs' ih Hill fer Sirtaln
Sunday school, and moreover that a phll-
anthroplcal lady had offered to glv thl
school a library provided she should be
permitted to design tb book, plates. ' More
over, I had heard of the preacher of Hell-
fer-Sartain, and ha fitted the niche In
which Imagination would place hlrn. About
him I had beard these words;
"'He's a good man an' there ain't a
word - agin' him' the speaker ' paused
leastwise not for a long time. Bout fifteen
year ago he got In a fus with a fat-feller
an' he an' a friend o' hln waited for him
In the lorrel an shot him, but they didn't
kill him. They're good friends now. The
preacher paid the feller not to prosecute
him an' atter the thing wag over he tot'
as how bain' nervous he put a bullet be
tween hta teeth when ha saw the fat feller
comln', an' he was so blam nervous that
he bit the bullet In two.'
" 'And he kept on preaching?' I asked.
" 'Oh, yes, folks have never held that up
agin' hlni.' And he was still preaching on
Heil-fer-Sartaln. Now In the story I wrote
the creek had gotten Its name from the
fighting character of the dwellers thereon.
As the teller of the story says to the
" 'Jus' turn bp the creek beyond the
bend thar an' climb on a stump an' holler
about one' that la on mountain method
of Issuing a challenge 'an' you'll see how
the nam com. Stranger, you'll get hell
"As I was nearlng the waters of the
same I asked a mountaineer leaning on
the fence about the name and he grinned:
" 'Folks say an ol bear hunter goln' up
the creek met another one coming down.
"Whar'd you coma from?" he says. "1
com down a devil of a place," t'other
feller says. "Well," says the fust man,
"you're goln' into hell fer sartaln now." '
"From that point I was to ride up a
little creek that trickled past my Infor
mant's cabin and on top of the ridge I
would strike Devil's Jump branch of Hell-fer-Sartaln.
Then I could ride on down
to church. It was a wild ride up that
little creek. J lost my way, recovered It,
struck the head of Devil's Jump branch,
followed the rocky path and In less than
an hour I emerged at Its mouth between j
massive superimposed boulders to see the
placid stream I sought gleaming under;
more great boulders' below.
"I halted in the road and looked back at
those massive, moss-grown, rhododendron
tufted bouldera that branch anyhow was!
well named and I couldn't help thinking
what a perilous lean t that point th old
boy would have Into his domain. A 1

rreeielrat Jokaann at the American

PT.' LOriS. Oct.' 10-Each ot the five
local sporting - writers In commenting on
yesterday's American lesgue base ball
game between the Cleveland nnd St. Ixiuls
teams, charge today that certain of the
local team allowed Lajoie to obtain hits
The object of this, It Is charged, waa to
enable hlrn to score more hits during the
season than were credited to Cobb of !
trolt. ' Lajoie Is credited by the official scorer
as being at the bat four times In each
gam of the double-header. Each time ho
obtained a hit. In the summary he Is also
given a aaorlflce hit. The first time he
hit a liner and made three bases. The
ball went over the center fielder's head.
Six other times he bunted down the third
baa line and elthni beat Third Baseman
Corrlden's throw to first base or else Cor
liden did not attempt to throw.
Another time Lajoie grounded to Wal
lace, who threw wild to first base. Onoe
Lajoie bunted to Corrlden. who fielded it.
but threw wild to first. This was the play
that gave Lajoie tho sacrifice hit.
When Lajoie waa at bat Corrlden played
far back of third base. He ran up each
time Lajoie bunted.
Malloy and Nelson were the St. Louts
pitchers. In the only other game which
Malloy pitched against Cleveland Lajoie
got on hit in three times at bat. Nelson
never pitched to Lajoie before.
President Hedges of the local team re
fused to discuss the team's playing.
Denial of Charges.
"Lajoie outguessed us," said Manager
O'Connor. "W figured he did not have
the nerve to bunt every time. He beat us
at our own game. I will not send any of
my players in to play up close to Lajoie
when he tries to bunt."
In explaining his playing, Lajoie, In a
telegram to a newspaper, sent from Cin
"After 1 made my hit, a clean drive to
center for three bases, the St. Louis men
played deep, expecting me to pound the
ball out every time. I fooled them right
along. Th pitchers did their best to
deceive me, I am certain."
Corrlden and Pitchers Malloy and Nelsort
could not be found today.
CHICAGO. 111., Oct. 10. President B. B.
Johnson of the American league announced
late today that no more prises will be of
fered or permitted while he continues at
the head of that base ball organization. :
President Johnson stated that he had
taken this position as a result of the Lajoie
Incident ' He also said that he was making
an Investigation .of the allegations made
unofficially by SL Louis sporting writers.
"Even If the assertions prov Ainfound
d," said President Johnson, "th merest
suspicion of crookedness works Irreparable
Injury to the gam and from how on rio
more Individual contest for prizes will be
allowed."' v i - ,' ;
i ,. Pttehefs Not lan4U-i
Several Chicago gporting writers, In dis
cussing the Lajeife Ineidewt, deolared they
do not. think blame could be attached to
the St. Louis pitchers, Malloy. and Nel
son. They said, however, that , the case
presented the possibility of an understand
lng between Lajoie and soma of the fielders
of the St. Louis team. His feat Sunday
was not a new record in major league
circles, but it has not been excelled for
many years. The nearest thing to It in
recent years was the work of Tycker of
the Chicago Nationals, whb, In a double
header at New York, made seven hits In
DETROIT, Mich., Oct. 10,-Frank J.
Navln, president of the Detroit American
league base bail club, declared today that
th hitting of Lajoie In St. Louis looked
"It looked ilk a raw deal," he said, "but
I don't know whether or not the league
wiii tuke action. T&s league car. throw out
games for justifiable reasons.
"I think when th average are given
out It will be found that Cobb is the leader.
At least I hop so." ,
President Navln also stated that th
league will probably take action towards
the elimination of prizes and bonuses , for
President Navln, "only created dissension
President Navln, "only created distention
on a team."
CINCINNATI. Oct. 10. Auitust Herr
mann, chairman of the National Base Ball
commission, In discussing the .Lajoie Inci
dent tonight, said:
"Lajol and Cobb, according to unoffi
cial averages, have th race for the leading
batsmen In both leagues bet 'teen thein.
Which will win I don't know fd the na
tional commission cannot decile until it
receives the official average I of both
"1 do want to say one thlriS1, sine the
question came up as to the genuineness of
the hits made by Lajoie at St- Louis, and
that is that no more prizes or bonuses
will be permitted under the -Hies of th
national commission. We sir. 11 be very
careful to eliminate anything If the kind
In the future."

NEW YORK, Oct. 8. To the Editor of

years, others for twenty, thirty and thirty
five years, have borne burdens developlmj
this county, I nrotent against George K.
Hall, democratic candidate for- state treas
urer, being charged up to Franklin or
Hall came to Franklin lust November,
only eleven months ago, and In eleven
months more may be gone; he Is hence not
enough of a Franklin man to be charged
up to us. I speak of this for three reasons:
First, the press, naturally, not knowing
these facts, have been calling him a Frank
lin man. Second, It was Franklin's good
name that helped nominate Hall; and,
third, years hence, when the democrats
of Franklin county want to put up a man
on the state ticket, or the Franklin re
publicans have a candidate. It will not be
thrown up to them that Franklin or Frank
lin county had a candidate In 1910 on the
state ticket. If Hall were to be charged
up to us, then Hall, who has only been
In the county a few months, would perhaps
roh some long-time worthy citizen of our
county of a deserved honor.
Hall Is not Franklin's kind of a man,
and his views on some of the moral issues
of this campaign are not in harmony with
the views of three-fourths of the citizens
of Franklin, which Is a further reason
why he should no be called a FrankU;
Again, Hail Is alleged to be a general
seeker of office. He had barely arrived
here before some one, stepping off the
train, said, "Isn't that George Hall of
Verdon?" and then predicted he would
soon be running . for county . treasurer or
some other office. In March he talked of
running for mayqr of our city, . although
he had been In .town but four months. He

OMAHA. Oct. 9. To the Editor of The

and Police Commissioners are offering fire
protection to the , people of Dundee for

Omaha would be willing to maintain a
fir department at their expense In order
to protect people that are dodging from
paying taxes. 1 don't think that our police
commissioner stopped to think that they
can lose one pair of horses In one trip to
Dundee and they will be but the 1600. If
th people of Dundee want fir protection
let them Join Omaha and pay taxes, but
they can get something for nothing.

Either by accident In attempting to
board a Missouri Pacific freight train upon

The torso lay outside the track, while
the head severed from the body, was found

HOT RUN FOR THE MONEY
Rise and Fall of n Spender Whoa
rare Waa an I'nasnnlly
Tn searching around for thr remnant of
the loot taken from the Illinois Central
railroad by mean of padded car repair
bills In Memphis and Chicago, the com
pany' sleuths pounced upon a bank bal
ance of 130.000. supposed to be th fag nd
of th fortun of Henry C. Ostermann,
head and front of the looting combination.
Up Ilk a rocket, down Ilk a tlck,
epitomizes the career of Ostermann. One
day he blazoned on the front pages of the
papers from New York to 'Frisco with plc
tuies of 120 bills used as cigarette light
ers, champagne bottles In silver hooped
palls of Ice, and portraits of the spender
himself in all the poses or his reckless
prodigality, and the next day he couldn't
get a stickful of notlc In the eighth col
umn of the thirteenth pge of the dally of
any self-respecting managing editor In any
city of the fifth magnitude on the con
tinent. Ostermann Was brooding over Idea and
nursing ambitions the day h was wear
ing a conductor' cap, and he "made good"
with a car coupler. It was an excellent
device. The railroads liked It. A company
came next In order for the manufacture of
the patented coupler. Mr. Ostermann be
came the president of the corporat'on. He
turned in his uniform and his punch and
stood before hi former associates a a
man of genius and a leader of Industry.
The business prospered greatly. Chicago
began to nolle thl new concern, located
In the city as It had been only a short
time. Larger enterprises began to beckon
Result, a great car repairing Industry at
Memphis, Tenn. That concern prospered,
too. Had this man the Midas-touch? The
railroads gave htm lota of business. The
Illinois Central was one of the best cus
tomers. And Just here begins to glisten
the slime of the trail. There has been a
good deal In the papers lately about the
methods by which the Memphis company
drew large sum from the railroad car
poratlon. There were bill for repairs
padded, It I ald on the witness stand by
the bookkprs, to th extent of 1.000 per
cent. Things were decidedly looking up
for Ostermann. There were certain offi
cials of the road who were "In right," and
their pockets. It I undertood, began to
bulge. The former conductor had Invented
a coupler, but, when the fickle goddess of
fortune began to scatter gold In his lap.
he was not equipped with any sort of a
brake, and his spending pace suddenly be
came greatly accelerated.
He first displayed his prowess In Walla
Walla. Walla Walla took notice because
Walla Walla Is not quite so Inured to the
spectacle of laving spending as Broadway.
Three days he went the dizzy pare thftt
western town, and people gasp yet when
his name If mentioned. It Is mated upon
-'V-nt authority that a party of Walla
Walla solid men made choice between see
,i.t, uto Maltle exposition and seeing Oster
mann in action, and that they chose the
latter. They were Just about to start for
the exposition when they heard the great
news, and they stayed to se the how
right at horn.
A (100 bill torn In half and one-half given
to the orchestra leader as an earnest that
the other half would come If he satisfied
demand at pstetmann's little private
dance, bellboy scrapping in the hotel lobby
for the right to answer the Ostermann call
nd get Ska.-Ostermann tip, these i would
have been below par as head line occur
rences in New York, but then Walla Walla
Is not New York -
Last November Ostermann blew Into De
troit and started In to tnnke that town sit
up and take notioe. At the cahiei-'s desk
he flashed a 11,000 bill, and gave the clerk
a fiver for the trouble of making change,
he ordered champagne for the crowd and
the crowd grew rapidly at the bars about
town, he liked the color of the flame of
the twenties with which he lighted his
cigars, and lie was In the midst of a very
good time, Indeed, when, alas! and alack!
Mrs. Ostermann appeared upon the scene
and ordered him to go home at once.
StllJ looking for larger worlds to con
quer, Ostermann next tried to dazzle Chi

It Is caused, maybe, by poor eyesight,

You may. if you choose, practice welkin

head; you mav throw your shoulder back;
you may walk with arms folded behind
you; vtm may try to keep the upper section
of the backbone vrfeMiy flat; you may
try to push against your collar with the
back of your neck. You may practice, any
one of the seventeen other nohames to
stand erect. Undoubtedly one of th beet
of habits is that of deep and leisurely
breathing. To be round-shouldered Is to be
gtlllty of moral failure, since It can b
cured at will. Collier' Weekly. ,

A SPECIFIC BLOOD IMPURITY
Catarrh is a deep-seated blood dis
ease, one which no amount of local
treatment will ever permanently cure.
The beneficial effects of washes,
Bprays, inhalations, etc., are only
temporary, and when left off the old
condition returns, because the blood
is infected with catarrhal matter and
impurities. This impure condition
of the circulation Irritates and in
flames the delicate mucous mem
branes and tissues and produces ther
well known symptoms of ringing
noises in the head and ears, mucus in
the throat, headaches, watery eyes,
partial deafnes9, sore throat, general
impairment of health, etc. This con
dition will remain, growing worse as
long as the catarrhal matter is al
lowed to remain in the blood.' Being
a specific blood impurity, there Is only
one way to cure Catarrh, and that is
to purify the blood. Nothing equals
S. S. S. for this purpose. .It attacks
the disease its head in, the circu
lation and by thoroughly renovating
the blood and
cleansing it of all
makes a perma
nent and lasting
cure of the dis
ease. For forty,
years S. S. S. has
as the best blood
purifier, and the thousands of cases of
Catarrh it has cure4 is proof that it is
the very medicine needed by those
who suffer with this trouble. Book on
