FIERCE BUT BAGGED
Central High Eleven Too Many for
THE GAME WAS NOT SO WORSE
Aaide From Fumbling, the Centrals
Showed Great Form—Some
Fierce, but ragged was the game be
tween the Central high school eleven and
a picked team from the alumni yesterday
afternoon. The latter had the weight, but
being without training and team work,
played an' Individual game, while the
lighter high school team was more of a
unit and a bit faster. The ball was badly
fumbled, each side being guilty of many
exasperating misplays. Particularly was
this tha case in the seocond half.
Aside from the fumbling the Centrals
played well against their big opponents.
They went into the game eagerly, a little
too eagerly at times, for they were penal
ized five times for off-side play.
All the touchdowns —two by the Central
and one by the alumni—were inado in the
first half. The first was the prettiest of
the game being made by Thayer after a
sixty-yard run around left tackle. Short
ly after a punt by Webster was blocked
and Marshall dropped on It behind the
line. Yerxa fumbled a punt just before
the first half ended and Tuck dropped on
It behind the line, scoring the only touch
down for the alumni. Score, 12 to 5.
The alumni weight was much in evi
dence during the second half, and they
might have scored had there been no
fumbling. Webster and Kayser distin
guished themselves throughout the whole
game. The cleverest players of the Cen
tral were Hunter, Thayer, Marshall and
Bidlake. The line-up and score:

England May Quit Trying
New York, Oct. 6. —The London cor
respondent of the Tribune quotes a prom
inent English yachtsman as saying that a
renewed attempt to capture the Amer
ica's cup has been made improbable for a
long time to come, owing to the general
disappointment in Great Britain over the
academy in twenty-three minutes of play
yesterday afternoon. On the kick-off
Myrick of South Side placed the ball fully
fifteen yards beyond the goal posts. The
academy never had a chance to see what
they could do by way of carrying the ball
at all, the South Side high never being
held for downs during the entire game.
The boys from south town put up a fast
game, Myrick getting away for a touch
down almost every time ho carried the
ball. Bang also did well and gained
ground almost at will. Hoover and Storer
showed up in fine form and Hughes at
center played a star game. Captain Sloan
bucked the line for repeated gains. The
academy boys went into the game with
spirit, but lack of training was evidently
the cause of their poor showing. The team
work of the South Side high was smooth,
and it was almost Impossible for their op
ponents to break up the interference.
The game was too one-sided to be of
much interest, except to show what the
South Side high boys could do. Arrange
ments have been made for the academy
team to practice with the high school
team, which will be of benefit to both.

Easy Money in Rattlesnakes
Milwaukee, Oct. s.—Many people imagine that the rattlesnake is a thing of the
past in Wisconsin, but there is some evidence in the records of several county offices
to show that the venomous reptile is increasing in numbers, notwithstanding the
bounties offered for his head. Up to the last day of September in Vernon county alone.
1,257 rattlers had been killed, for which that county paid in bounties 1613.50.
But Crawford county takes the lead, for her citizens have called on the county
officer having the work of paying the bounties in hand for 51,127.59 during the same
period, this sum paying for 2,213 snakes. It is said that La Crosse comity has paid
for about 1,000, while other countieß in the western part of the state, along the Mis
sissippi river, have records of several hundred each to their credit.
A report was published a few days ago that 22,250 rattlers had been killed and
paid for in Crawford county, but a resident of Prairie dv Chien, who was in Milwau
kee to-day, says the figure is an exaggeration. He says there are thousands of rat
tlesnakes in the Mississippi bluffs and that men properly equipped with the neces
sary nerve could go into the dens where they breed and make a fortune.

"Wisconsin Bear Story.
Special to The Journal.
Marshfleld, Wis., Oct. s.—lt is a stand
ing joke that a bear can cut down his
living expenses during the winter by
crawling Into his hole and sucking his
paw, but he cannot live with a beer keg
over his head, as the following will prove.
J. C. Davis, a farmer in the town of
! Richfield, was pestered continually by a
bear that came to his yards each night
and would invariably rob a bee hive or
carry away some of his stock. Honey
seemed to be the bear's long suit, so Mr.
Davis conceived the idea of leading him
into a trap.
Taking a beer keg, he knocked out the
top end and in the bottom placed some
honey. To make sure that the bear could
not extricate himself when once his head.
was inside, Mr. Davis drove spikes in the
keg in a slanting way, making ingress
easy, but egress quite a different proposi

all Mr. Davis could see was hair and con

there was no snow on the ground )• was
useless to try and follow the bru?e, so
Davis gave up, thinking the while what
would become of bruin and congratulat
ing himself that he had placed a muzzle
over the bear's head that would keep him
from robbing another hive.
Mr. Davis had given up all hopes of
hearing of the bear's fate, but a report
came from Chippewa county, some fifty
miles away, stating that a dead bear had
been found with a Marshfleld beer keg
over its head, and how it came there was
a matter of much speculation. To Davis,
however, it was perfectly plain.

Beaumont Oil Refined Produces 31
Per Cent of illuminating Oil—A
Monster Oil Refinery Started.
The largest, as well aa the most ex
perienced, oil concern in the Beaumont
field —in fact in all America —Is Guffey &
Galey. Being practical oil men with un
limited capital at their command, they
have taken the lead in all development
and have set the pace which others have
done well to trail after. They are not
offering their stock for sale, while at the
same time are investing millions of dol
lars in this field. Without taking the
public into their confidence, they have
erected a small refinery at Port Arthur to
determine the plans upon which a larger
refinery should be built and to their own
surprise they have developed an average
of 30 to 35 per cent of illuminating oil, the
residuum being even more desirable than
the crude oil for fuel purposes.
Upon this showing this concern is now
building the largest oil refinery in tho
world. They have contracted for 60 oil
tanks, each of a capacity of 50,000 barrels,
all to be near Spindle Top Heights and
Port Arthur, at which latter place the
new refinery is now building. This will
give them a capacity near the gushers of
2,500,000 barrels of oil. In connection
with this gigantic scheme, this same com
pany is erecting Tank No. 61 at New Or
The significance of all this development
to the investor is the practical certainty
that Texas oil is believed by practical
men to be the greatest oil proposition the
world has ever seen. This has been the
claim of those who have had stock for
sale, but the actual development under
the leadership of the most practical of oil
men, takes this matter entirely out of
the realm of speculation and makeß It a
simple business investment. The Beau

above stated facts at some length and

It is not often one finds an Aogelican
cleric so accomplished a scientist as Mr.
Bacon, the clever balloonist, who is now
engaged in a series of experiments in
war ballooning and wireless telegraphy
from the clouds on behalf of the British
war office. It requires a large amount of
pluck to ascend into the clouds and steadj
nerves to be ready for any emergency.
Such nerves come with drinking "Golden

purest barley malt and hops. Pure,
sparkling and refreshing, it is a
delicacy fit for the finest table yet
within the reach of all.
