GHOCTAWS SHUT OUT
IN GAME SATURDAY
BILL VETTER'S WORK IX BOX
WAS EVIDENTLY NOT ALL
3Ilko Fnrrcll of the Choctaws Held
Our Boys Down to Six Hits But
They Wero Bunched so That Sev
en Scores Wero Made.
"BUI" Vetter demonstrated on
Saturday that liis previous good
work as a pitcher was not more good
luck. He let the strong "Choctaw"
team of the Lackawanna County
League have but five hits and no
runs, while his teammates gave their
usual good support. In tho fourth
Innlne Vetter Ditched only three
balls to retire tho side.
Tho visitors brought tho much
touted "Mike" Farrell with them,
nntl that made it look bad for Hones-
dale's chances, but by patiently wait
ing him out, and making a few timely
wallops, the locals won out very
handily, vetter pitcneu tue same
easy floaters during tho whole game,
the kind that makes your heart go
up into your mouth every time the
latter takes a healthy swing at It,
as it seems as though they would
knock it out of the lot: but all tho
Choctaws could do was to knock lit
I tie pop flies or strike out.
For four innings It looked like a
great pitchers' battle, but in the fifth
Farrell began to weaken. Schilling
was given a base on balls, Farrell's
wild throw put him on second and
I threw low to third, when Ilessllng
rolled a slow one t o him, Shotto lot
it get through him and Schilling
scored. Vetter rolled one to coer,
Hessling going to second and Brader
shot a nice single to right, but Hess
ling was held at third. Lily rolled
a slow one to short and should have
Ibeen out but Morel dropped tho ball.
We scored two more in the sixth.
ISandy started the Inning with a
Itwo-bagger. Weaver now out to
Icentdr, and Tarkett was safe on
10 Donnelrs muff, Sandy going to
Ithird. Shilling chopped one to
Schotto who caught Sandy at home.
IHessling walked, and with the bases
ffull and two out Vetter, after fouling
two, shot a nice clean single over
short and two runs scored after
3rader flew out to short. Lily and
Mangan both walked. Sandy rolled
tine to Coer who caught Mangan go
ng to second. Weaver singled, scor
ing Lily. Tarkett lifted one to deep
right center for two bases and
Bandy and Weaver scored. Final
Icore, 7 to 0.

Dozen nnd a Half Miners Meet In
Mnnt Death In Schuylkill County
Pottsvllle, Pa., Aug. 3. Eighteen
men wero killed and two were seri
ously hurt by a double explosion ln
the East Broodslde colliery at Tow
er City yesterday.
About 175 pounds of dynamite, ac
cidentally detonated, blew down
props like straws and sent a column
of fire shooting into breasts and
gangways. Part of this flame struck
a pocket of gas which had collected
after tho fire boss made his morning
rounds, and a second explosion,
more deadly, followed, as it over
whelmed a rescuing party which was
endeavoring 10 rcacii men cuuguuu
the first explosion.
For five minutes the bottom or tue
mine, which Is 1800 feet below the
surface and is reached by the deep
est slope in the anthracite region,
looked like a fiery furnace, with all
the men lying prostrate on tneir
faces, where they had thrown them
selves to avoid breathing tho flames.
The fierce heat scorched the life out
of most who escaped tho severe con
cussion and flying rock.

Thlrty-Ono lUts nnd Twenty-Five
Tallies For Honesdalo Largo
Crowd of Local Fans Attended
Honesdale won the third game of
the series from Hawley on tho lat
ter's field Sunday in one of the worst
slaughters of the season. When the
dust of battle had died away the
locals had wolloped the ball for thirty-one
hits and had scored twenty
five times and left the Hawley boys
with only a third of that number to
their credit. And all of this despite
the fact that Honesdale did not have
their regular lineup in the field.
In the first inning Brader was out
on a high fly to left and Lilly went
to first on a single. Then things be
gan to happen. .Mangan, the next
in line, hit for two sacks. Tarkett
did the same and brought two
scores in to the dismay of our neigh
In the second to show that there
were no hard feelings Hawley tied
the score. Then followed the slaugh
ter. Loll was not in the best of
condition and allowed ten hits but
that was probably on account of the
fact that the game was cinched.
In the fourth inning McCloskey
was through on account of a weak
arm and Brown went In the box.
Brown is a little fellow but he had
hopes. Brown did not last long.
Hessling, Faatz and Schilling doub
led and Brown was recalled. The
next sacrifice was Custer and he last
ed the rest of tho inning and the
next. Dougherty erstwhile in left
field was put in to stop the fray but
nothing could stop Honesdale Sun
day. Dougherty did, however, hold
them down a little for the rest of tho
game. The following is the score:

WANTS TROLLEY' Rl'
Wayne County Rallv Company
has received a request Sj ;h is back
ed by a neat sum of money, asking
that the company extend Its line to
tho fair grounds before the fair thla
fall. Owing to the fact that the
trolley company voted to extend Its
line any time from the borough
limits and at the same time Increased
its capital from $100,000 to $400,-
000, it can go to the fair grounds if
It is thought that there would bo
business enough to warrant building
an extension In that direction.
Should Main street fall to bo pav
ed this fall there is a possibility that
the project may be carried out. In
that case the rails already laid on
Main street could bo utilized and a
new road built from the State bridge
north to the fair grounds.
In the event that the trolley Is
built to the fair grounds It Is a fore
gone conclusion that tho attendance
at that place would be a record
breaker in attendance. It would be
the banner year.

MAY NOT PAVE THIS FALL.
According to state officials, Main
street may not be paved this year as
was nrst anticipated, owing to the
hold up of state appropriations. The
bids havo not been advertised and
before any contracts are let these
ads necessarily have to appear In
we press tnreo weeks. If tho bids
are not advertised at once the pav
ing win come late in the fall when
frost will interfere with tho work.
It looks now as If Main street will
not be paved until spring.

Railroads AH'ected nnd Dams nnd
Bridges Carried Awny at
Stroudsburg, Aug. 2. A cloud
burst, sending down sheets of water,
and accompanied by violent light
ning and thunder, visited the Poco
no mountains and tho Delaware val
ley from 12:30 until 4 o'clock Fri
day afternoon, leaving havoc and
desolation in its wake. Tho rain fall
averaged seven and one-half inches
throughout this entire section, tho
heaviest fall in this part of the state
in its history.
All of the Pennsylvania railroad
trains reaching this section aro com
pletely out of commission and the
damage to that road cannot be com
pletely repaired for days to come.
The Stroudsburg, Wa'ter Gap and
Portland trolley lino is washed out
nearly Its entire length and its right
of way is covered with debris.
All of the Lackawanna trains
were stalled from 2:15 o'clock until
8 o'clock. At the East Stroudsburg
station the trains wero blocked for
four miles, two miles on both east
and west bound tracks. Passenger,
freight and coal trains were blocked.
The tracks of the Lackawanna
were washed out from Manunka
Chunk for a distance of between
four to five hundred feet. At this
point a railroad signal tower was
raised from its founuation and car
ried fully one hund.-ei feet from the
railroad tracks. It was later fouud
lying in a field and was a complete...
At EaBt Stroudsburg the dam of
the Pennsylvania Electric company
was destroyed for distance of ful
ly seventy-five feot, giving freedom
to thousands of gallons of water and
adding to the havoc of this region!
" At Delaware Water Gap a huge
concrete retaining wall, erected two
years ago by the Lackawanna Rail
road company, was washed awa7 for
a distance of fully two hundred feet.
This wall varied from fifteen to
twenty feet ia he.'ght and wa9 ne
tween the tracks of tho Lackawanna
and tho road leadinf, to the Kittatin-
ny hotel. It seems that a sore of
landslide occurred at this point,
carrying the tracks and also the sec
tion of the strong wall with it. The
wall was erected at a tremendous
cost and was considered strong
enough to withstand any force or
pressure. Tho fact that it was car
ried away as though made of the
flimsiest material gives some idea of
the fury of tho storm.

BALL PLAYER STRUCK OVER
HEART AND DIES.
Charles Deets, of Kingston, aged
twenty-one years, while playing base
ball at Harvey's Lake Saturday af
ternoon was struck over tho heart
with a pitched ball. He ran to first
base after the ball hit him but 'he
had hardly reached the bag when he
fell to the ground and expired.
Deet's death came as a shock to
the players and spectators. The ball
which struck him was not very
speedy and even after It hit him
tho player displayed no exertion as
he ran down the line. A doctor who
was looking at tho game hurried to
tho player's side but upon making
an examination the doctor discovered
tho victim was dead.
Two years ago Deets' father was
killed by falling from a breaker up

LUNCH WAGON FOR

a matter of fact tho borough council
ought to do something to got storage
out of the car. Ttentlng it might not
be a bad idea aftor all.
