tiua.uehanna, Nov. 10, The other
night a mnn at Rust flush treed what
he snpposed to be u coon and climbed
the tree to dislodge It. He encountered
a porcupine, which tilled IiIh face and
hands with quills, and caused hint to
fall heavily to the around. The en
laged animal then descended the tree
nnd attacked the hound dog, Minding
it In one eve and filling Its neck and
mouth with quills. The man was ren
dered unconscious, and was found by
a searching party the next morning,
"The fretful porcupine" went hence,

SOOTHING THE BKUEAVKD.
Some time since a .Susquehanna
county woman, tired of life, hung her
self to an apple tree. The evening af
ter the funeral service neighbors called
upon the husband to offer their con
dolence, and to cheer him up as best
they could. One of the party ventured
the remark that death was probably
nearly painless, to which the bereaved
husband leplled: "Wa-al, 1 hardly
think so. She must have kicked dread
fully, for she shook off more'n a
bushel of my best apples!"

This afternoon will be an oft day for
the Scranton High School eleven,
which, 'will not take part in any jrrld
Iron contest, but will content Itself
with watching the match at Athletic
park between St. Thomas college and
the Carbondale Indiana. This same
promises to bn a good one. The teams
arc evenly matched nnd are both com
posed of big, strong players.
The loral boys will probably go Into
the game with the same line-up that
has upheld the Purple and White In
the majority of Its games this season.
The Injury to Emmett Klrkwood's an
kle In ttoc Wyoming gnme, has laid
up that haid-wroklng young player,
nnd he Is now receiving treatment nt
a central city hospital. His place at
end Is likely to be filled by A. Mc
Donald, who may bo supplanted at
tackle by Burke, or Joe McDonald.
Hndglus, the Meet-footed, fierce
playing half back of St. Thomas, Is
a Carbondale Indian of last season,
and has on various occasions this year
played with his old comrades. They
count on lilni at full back today nnd
he will probably be lined up against
the collegians. Hanson Is another ot
the crack Curbondallans, and Ihe en
tire Indian back field is a fast and
strong one. The game will star', nt 3
The High School team was to have.
Journeyed this afternoon to Horns
dale nnd played the oft-postponed
game with the High School eleven
there. It was learned, however, that
the Honesdule men were unable to
put a strictly school team in the l'.eld,
In fact, that the greater part of the
eleven were outsiders. As a result the
local pigskin chasers cancelled the
date, and will today take a day off.
Next Saturday. AVIIkes-Barre High
School's fast eleven will be the at
traction at Athletic park.
Piofessionel foot ball has this year
secured a grip on numberless cities.
In which Iheie Is no representative
university eleven, and these teams,
generally made up of splendid ex-college
athletes, are making professional
foot ball as popular as ever was base
ball in the height of its glory. In
Western Pennsylvania there are a
number of crack paid elevens, the or
ganization of which was prompted by
the great success of the Duquesne
Country and Athletic club's invincible
heroes of last year. Homestead Is this
fall represented by an eleven on which
a few of the stars are Arthur Poe and
Church, both Princeton idols, Bemls
Pierce, the giant Carlisle Indian, Pete
Overfleld, whom the Pennsylvania
'Varsity men swear Is the greatest ot
college centers: Miller, the fleet-footi"!
half back of the Carlisle IndlanAt and
Hall, Yale's strong ex-end. Dave
Full!!, who when he played atiBrown
university was considered one of the
fastest half backs on the gridiron, is
another of the 'team's luminaries, and
Winstoin and Quarter Back Richard
son are two more of the eleven's star
players. Ralph Hutchinson, last year
quarter back on the Princeton team,
is captain of the Greensburg eleven,
on which he plays in his regular posi
tion. Seheca, the Indian who was
picked last year by some writers for
the position of half on the .ill-American
team, plays one of the backs,
and Steckie, the big tackle who was
one of the crack players in the west
last year, and Duval, of Cornell, are
two other players on the team. The
Latrobe team, another professional or
ganization, numbers among Its men
Knight, of Lafayette, and Gelger, of
A'bbatichio, the Italian base 'ball
player, who formerly covered second
bag for Philadelphia, Is playing full
back on the Latrobe professional team.
He is a splendid punter nnd drop
kicker, and has Invented a now mint,
by means of which the ball, after strik
ing tile ground, shoots along In a man
ner which makes It exceedingly diffi
cult to handle and pick up.
Hudson, one of, If not the greatest
drop kickers that ever put a hostile
goal In danger, is now playing with the
strong Duquesne team. The little In
dian has scored a big hit with the good
people of Pittsburg.
William Eagan, for many years the
Idol of the Syracuse base ball tiopu
lace, Is dead. Eagan, who was popu
larly known all along the circuit as
"Bad Bill," was the crack second base
man of the Eastern league, and for
awhile played with Plttwburg, In the
National, and there, too, made a great
record. He became involved In domes
tic troubles and while crazed with
drink shot his wife. He died only a
few days ago In Syracuse of injuries
thought to have 'been caused by a ball
which once hit him In th"iTlde. Eagan
was undoubtedly a great player, a
splendid fielder, clever base runner and
strong bntsman. He was up to every
trick of the trade, and It is doubtful If
any player In the country, with the ex
ception of Hughey Jennings, ever
worked with Huch success the hit by
a pitched ball game. In nearly every
match Eagan managed to bring his an
atomy In collision with the ball, nnd
thus he presented with his base. And
now It seems that It was a, pitched
ball which caused his death. Eagan' a
vicious sobriquet was the result of his
defiant attitude towards rooters In
general and very pugnacious dealings
with umpires In particular. Ho was al
ways a favorite In this city.

In this elty he expressed his willing

Irish sailor as a physical wreck, and

same right to change their minds on
occasion as lesser mortals, and a bout
between the champion and brawny
seaman will provoke much Interest
throughout the sporting woild.
