"Tlgern" of Hones dale were completely routed by the Crescents, the crackajack team from this city, In an Interesting game nt Lake Lodore yesterday afternoon. Tho score was 10 to 6. The game was Cnrbondnle's all the time nnd the only occasion In which things seemed to be going Mnple city wny wns In the fifth Inning, when the Tigers put themselves one ahead of the gnme In the last Inning the Cres cents made good, scoring four runs. The team work of the Crescents was admlrnhle and In giving credit there doesn't seem to be a single player who can be given more praise than nnother. Smith nnd Loftus nnd Hc.ssllng and Veeter were the batteries. There was a great aggregation of rooters from Corbondale nnd Hones dale, nnd there wns vociferous cheer ing nnd a running fire of "kidding" from the beginning to the end of the contest.

WORK FOR LAFAYETTE SMITH. The Vidocq of Wnymnrt Has a Case of Probable Incendiarism to En gage His Skill. Lafayette Smith "Lafe" Smith when the title Is stripped of Its dig nity the vigilant village policeman ot Waymart, hns an Important ense on his hands, one that will engage his skill to solve. The Wonnacott saw mill was destroyed by fire late Friday night and as there was nothing about the place to cause n blaze, 11 number of the residents are "pot" In their opinions that the only Industry of the village was "sot" afire. It Is this mys tery that Policeman Smith has under taken to unravel and If "Lafe" does not unravel It, It's because there's no unraveling to the thing. This Is the first hnppenlng that has stirred Lafayette since he brought nbout so completely the downfall of the flourishing "capital of Waymart." the speakeasy that became an Intol erable nuisance to the law nnd order abiding citizens of that community. As In that Instance Policeman Lafay ette Smith holds the good name above nil else, and If It Is In his power lv menus to suppress the lnwiefs spirits who might drift Into the peacenhle life of Wnymnrt nnd give play to their mischief. Speaking of Mr. Smith It might bo mentioned that he possesses nn his torlcal name of which few persons can boast. He Is known and called La fayette, hut this Is only a fragment of his surname. In full It tuns as fol lows: Marie Jean Paul Roach Ives ed Gilbert Marquis de Lafayette Smith. The good naturcd policeman would not burden his friends with addressing him f-o; plain "Lafe" Smith Is good enough. An Important Deal.

It Is announced, how ever, that tho display will take place Monday evening without fail. Dur ing the afternoon n huge number ot balloons were started skyward. A re markable occurrence thnt hns prob ably never happened before nnd may not hnpnen ngaln within a thousand years, was the return of one of the bal loons nfter n half hour's milling. When the balloon wns stnrted theie wns a northenst wind blowing which later changed to n southwest breeze, carry ing the balloon bnck irfter It hnd been list sight of nnd almost forgotten.

About 9 o'clock Saturday night con siderable excitement was created In the central part of the city, when a pistol shot rang out on the still night air. It came ftom the alley In the rear of Main street, between Rroad and William streets, and thither a large crowd hurried. Thnt no crime was chronicled was due to the poor aim of a man named ('awley. who adopted nn unusually severe method of Inflicting punishment on n misbehaved son. The latter had tied from his father' presmce and wns making good speed up the alley mentioned, chased by the Irnte fnthep. The son enslly succeeded In distancing his father, however, nnd the lntter, not to be outdone, pulled 11 revolver and Hied, hut fortunately missed his mark. Another big cave.
