A Disputed Game
Touchdown Made Near Close
Of Contest Was Fair and
' Must Count.
The DuBula High School football
team was defeated in a game with the
ReynoldsviHe team at this place
Wednesday afternoon, but the visit
ing team and the DuBols papers claim
it was a tie game. The score was
5 to 0.
Charles Robertson, the referee, says:
"The final dispute arose over the touch
down, Bohren was called on an end
run. He succeeded in Rotting past
every man (on the DuBols team) but
Dunsmore, who was fully ten yBrds
from goal. Dunsmore made an attempt
to tackle, but missed, and Bohren kept
going towards the goal at full speed.
Before reaching the goal line and with
in two yards of the goal, he slipped
to one knee, and fell over the line for
a touohdown. The Courier states that
Dunsmore tackled him, but be was fully
ten yards away when Bohren crossed
The Courier says: "It really should
have been a shame for a bunch of men
to enter the game with the Intentions
expressed before hand of 'knocking the
heads off of them kids.' " The Courier
would leave the impression that the
ReynoldsviHe team was composed of
men of mature years. Two of the
ReynoldsviHe players In Wednesday's
game have passed the twenty-one year
mile stone, but the other players are
not yet of age and it will be several
years before some of them can vote.
Several of them are high school boys,
It was not the old Indian football team
that defeated the DuBols team here
on 17th InBt. The real truth of the
matter 1b the visitors were outclassed,
and the team and DuBols newspapers
should be willing to own up that the
team was fairly defeated.

The Buffalo, Rochester and Pitts

near Cloe, some three miles east of
Punxnutawney, and the big force of
men and teamB that bave made the
site a beehive of activity the past three

to other points along the line.
The big enclosure, which has been
dubbed, unofficially, Noonan's Lake,
when filled with aqua pura, will be
the largest artlflcal pond In Central
Pennsylvania, and other dams in this
section cannot approach it In size.
The official figures of its dimensions
are not available, but roughly estl
mated, the pond is about 800 feet wide,
3,000 feet long and extreme depth, 30
Local Btatlstlcana, who have been
figuring on the capacity say that it
will, when full, hold about 200,000.000

Described by Duncan M. Duns
more, Jr., Formerly ot
About'four miles down the Mississippi
from the center of New Orleans Is the
battlefield of New Orleans, the scene of
the greatest American viotory over the
British, on land, in the war of 1812.
Its location Is now kuown as Port
Cbalmette, a very small village Inhab
ited chiefly by poor whites and negroes.
The battlefield borders on the river and
stretches back about half a mile from
Its banks. The entire plot was formerly
owned by a rich Creole named Cbal
mette, and for whom the present town
Is named. The gateway to the grounds
Is at the foot of the levee, and the vis
itor first sees an old time plantation
mansion, surrounded by a well kept
lawn, and flanked by anoient muzzle
loading guns set with their breeches In
concrete and their muzzles gaping to
wards the heavens. There is a book In
whlob the visitors oau register on the
porch of the mansion. . ,
Tbe mansion Is brick, with a porch
entirely around it. It Is In One condi
tion, considering that it is a century
old, but that is probably due to the fact
that the care taker of tbe battlefield
lives In it.
After passing tbe mansion, the next
object of interest is the cemetery, in
which are burled all the men of tbe
Union forces, both whites and blacks,
killed during the Civil war along the
Mississippi below the Red river. This
cemetery indwell laid out and in good
condition. It lays immediately behind
the American earthworks.
They are there to-day just as Andrew
Jackson threw them up nearly a cen
tury ago, except that a Bmall part was
levelled to make room for a wall around
the cemetery. About a hundred yards
beyond tbe earthworks, and with level
land intervening, is a long raw of trees.
These trees mark the British lines,
where they fell Id ranks before charg
ing the Amerloans, and where General
Pakenham was shot. Just on the other
side of the trees several thousand Brit
ish soldiers are burled. There was an
attempt made to have the British gov
ernment buy this land and properly
mark these graves, but the Britons re
fused to do so.
Half a mile up the river is a large
square monument probably fifty or sixty
feet high, with a pointed summit, and
oonstruoted of white marble. This
marks the location of General Jackson's
headquarters. Tbe house whloh was
there grew so dilapidated that it was
razed and this handsome monument
erected on the spot.
There is another house, or rather the

Pakenham was taken when he was
wounded, and under Its roof he uled.
His body was sent to England In a cask
of rum. Tbe ruins of tbe building still
remain and there Is an oak tree growing
up through tbe center of them.
The writer met an old gentleman liv

British, when landlnir on thn nhnrna nf

troops, so they dug a oanal. It still re

turned his plantation over to General
Jnckson to do as he pleased with It. in
erecting defenses on It. Jackson seized
ayery large quantity of cotton bales
and barrels of sugar and used them for
breastworks on his line of defense. , The
Irate owners of the cotton and suear
came down and demanded Its return.
Jackson asked them If thev could
identify their property. Thev replied
that they could, and as fast as eaoh one
picked out bis cotton and sugar, Jack

During the fight a British soldier
leaped over the American ramparts and
seizing a rifle started firing at bis late
comrades, and fought like a demon dur
ing tbe remainder of tbe battle. His
name was McKlnney and it later de
veloped tbat he had been forced into
tbe British army against bis will and
chose this way of leaving it. He mar

that water Is reached but a few feet be

Jews, however, bury their dead in the
ground regardless of these conditions.
