'alone without the aid of the eleven er

away to the good.

Cuff had a great batting record; his
average for the game was S00. Out
of 5 times up, ho made 4 hits; two of
them weie corking two baggers.
Our Owney, beside holding Susque
hanna's heavy hitters down to nine hits'
'and striking out 5 of them, he made
two hits, one which sailed out Into deep
left and landed him on second base.
Every man on the team hit the ball,
with the exception of Jtosler, who had
the hardest kind of hard luck. He
knocked one to third base that looked
nil the world to be safe, but third

Emmett Gallagby, Harte and Mc
Andrew, each, had two hits.
The fielding of Rosier was brilliant;
the greatest of the game. He captured
two flys after long runs that anybody
would gamble were good for hits. His
quick return of balls amazed some of
the strangers, to whom such quick
work among amateurs was a novelty.
Murray added to his reputation ns
the best third baseman in the valley
or In Wayno or Susquehanna. His fly
catch after a run and Jump was great.

A FEARFUL STORM.
Passes Over This City, but Floods
Waymart Holds Up a D. and H.
Train for Several Minutes.
Curbondalo just escaped a wild sum
mer storm last night. It blew over the
city and broke crossing tho Mooslcs,
flooding the country east of us, almost
deluging Waymart, at tho foot of the
About G.S0, the skies darkened, and
great banks of black clouds began to
roll up. Residents who were on
porches, after the evening meal, with
drew to the Inside to avoid the threat
ened deluge. The wind veered, how
ever, to tho cast and carried the storm
until tho ruln-illled clouds were over
the summit of the Mooslcs on the
heights of Farvlew. Here they broke,
and swept down the 'mountain side,
carried by tho hurricane force of the
wind over tho fertile plain that sweeps
this country to Honcsdale.
At Waymart, it was a cloud-burst
that deluged tho village with a rain
such as was hardly ever seen there be
fore. The Delaware and Hudson pas
senger train from Honcsdale pulled Into
the station in the midst of the down
pour. A small boy was the flrst of the
passengers to alight. When ho stepped
onto the platform and darted for the
Inviting open door of tho station, he
was caught by the rain that poured off
the car roof Jiujt life a waterfall and
was knocked to the ground. Brakeman
William Cliff rushed to his aid and
carried the youngster back to Fafety on
the car. In doing so. Cliff was soaked
to the skin, though it was only an in
stant's work. Tho downpour was so
heavy that no passengers could leave
the train for nearly ten minutes.
Sharp flashes of lightning illuminated
the darkened scene and hall not as
big ns hen's eggs, but larger than
marbles beat a merry tattoo and
cracked numerous window-panes. Gar
dens were flooded and torn up and
considerable damage was visited on the
crops. It was one of the worst storms
that ever came down the Moosies.
DEATH OF MRS. SOLOMON.
Esteemed Jermyn Woman Succumbs
Mrs. Solomon, relict of the late John
Solomon, of Jermyn, died In Dr.
AVhceler's hospital last evening about 6
Mrs. Solomon was hurriedly taken to
tho hospital on Saturday afternoon to
be operated on for general appendi
citis. She was taken sick on Wednes
day nnd her condition became desper
ate so rapidly that tho only chance for
her life lay In operating. The opera
tion was undertaken late Saturday nf
teernoon, but the disease had sapped
so much of her vitality that she made
no rally. She sank until death came,
shortly after 6 o'clock last evening.
Mrs. Solomon's death will affect a
wide circle of friends in Carbondalo,
her former home, and In Jermyn, whore
she wns held in affectionate regard.
The suddenness of her demise accen
tuates tho grief of her taking away.
Mrs. Solomon lived In Carbondale for
a long time, where her husband was In
tho saloon business. Ho moved to Jer
myn, where ho kept tho St. George
hotel. She was related to Robert Max
well, of this city, and to tho Welgand
JOE COOPER'S STATEMENT.
Disavows Connection with Movement
to Change Strikers.
For a couple of weeks it has been
freely passed nbout that the Delaware
and Hudson company hns lind agents
among tho striking employes, urging
them on various pretexts to desert and
return to work, which was nt their
In connection with these rumors, the
Identity of the so-called agents was
llxed, which gave moro force to tho
stories. One whoso name was freely
passed was Joe Cooper, of iho West
Side, a former special policeman und
regarded somewhat us a lender among
a certain Itullun element of tho town's
foreign population, It was talked of
among tho miners, without much quali
fying, that Joo wus un earnest worker
among the Italians und wus getting
them in line to return to work before
the strike would bo declared off,
Mr. Cooper, however, comes out with
a vehement denial and requests Tho
Tribune to state that he has hud no
connection or Identity with any move
ment to Induce any ot his countrymen
to return to work.
"I could get work the first day after
the strike went on," Bays Mr. Cooper,
"but I would not go, I don't belong to
this miners' union, but I um not going
back t,o work until the others go, und I
am not going to try to coux any one
Why Cooper's name was connected
with the alleged strike-breaking move
ment can probably be explained by his
having been among the Italians of the
town for the past, few weeks with ref
erence to their naturalization, papers.
He has been gqttlng over a scoro of
them ready to 16 their papers, and
during his tlmo among them, getting
their signatures, etc., tho belief arose
that his activity was due to tho pur
ported strike-breaking movement,
Mr, Cooper states ho has boen ex
ceedingly annoyed by these stories,
which arc without foundation, nnd that
nu odium rests on him by reason of
tho hastily Indulged In gossip of some
of the miners. In the spirit of fnlr
play, he nslts that these Unfair judg
ments of him bo recalled.

END OP THE HUMAN RACE.
From tho Woman's Homo Companion.
In tho wise economy of Nuturo It is
so ordered that all vegetable life puri
nes the air for animal life, and vleo
versa. Animals consume oxygen and
exhale carbonic acid, while vegotatlon
absoibs corbonlo ucld, robbing it of Its
carbon und sotting tho oxygen free.
Tho original atmosphere of tho earth
before animal life existed consisted es
sentially of nitrogen nnd carbonic add,
pur supply of atmospheric oxygen has
been furnished by tho great forests of
vegetation, such us tho coal ferns,
whlcfl covered tho earth In tho Carbon
iferous age, when tho coal beds woio
formed, Tho same conditions, only on
a Binaller scale continue to prevail;
but It Is not likely thut tho oxygen
given out by prcsont vegetation Is, or
will be, sulllclent to koop pace with Its
enormously Increasing consumption by
man. Lord Kelvin bus estimated that
if the present consumption of coal In
human Industries continues wfth any
thing like its present ratio of Increase,
tho grout coal-measures will bo ex
hausted, and thq oxygen of our atmos
phere practically consumed by Its
combustion, within the noxt four or
five centuries. This Is tho most likely,
perhaps, of all possible calamities to
generally affect tho human race, and it
jnoro directly concerns us at the pres
ent time, from our realization that wo
are extravagantly wasting tho breath
of life of those who are soon to follow,
