tion of Schrank's revolver showed
that the bullet which entered Roose

comfortably and that there was no
change in his condition.
Absolute quiet and rest was all

the family the colonel will be per
mitted to see no one.
Among the messages received at
the hospital are: "Permit me to ex

form wondering wheer that bullet
was in you. It was all very well for
you to say that it wasn't in a fatal
place, but you couldn't be sure."
Colonel Roosevelt's reply was:
"No, I couldn't be sure, but I felt very
confident that it was .not in a place
where much harm could follow.
Therefore I wanted to make that
speech. Moreover, in the very im
probable event of the bullet being in
a fatal place, I thought I would ra

he would cancel all speaking engage

ranged for Thursday* and Friday this
week, until Roosevelt is able to take
an active part in the campaign.

the only candidate on the stump
against no active antagonist."

and people who will attend will be
given an opportunity to see a real

kind of a dance it was that had
caused the council so much trouble
that the dance will be introduced for
a few minutes in the last number of
the show. Two men will dance.
The two shows last evening
brought in $153 to the treasury so
that the total receipts for the first
two nights are $314.90
That the vaudeville has attracted
outside attention is evidenced by the
fact that two booking agents came
to Bemidji yesterday and after seeing
the show last night decided to re

Mock cars plunged thirty feet into
the Mississippi river from the end
of the open draw bridge at South
St. Paul at 6:40 Tuesday. The train
was part of the South St. Paul Term

The accident occurred about two
miles from Daytons Bluff. The train
was on its way to South St. Paul
with a string of eighteen cars. The
bridge was open to allow the pas
sage of the steamer Hiawatha.
The engine, driven by Charles C.
Cramer, 207 Fourth avenue, South
St. Paul, leaped ten feet beyond the
end of the trestle and then dropped
on its nose into ithe river, where it
turned until it faced towards the rear
of the train and settled on its side.
Eight cars loaded with hogs, sheep
and cattle were dragged behind and
fell in a splintered mass upon the
Engineer Cramer was buried be

Fenway Park, Boston, Oct. 16.
For the first time in wort's series
history the championship battle goes
to the eighth game which will be
played here today.
Rushing the peerless and unbeat
en Wood even more savagely than
they rushed O'Brien the day before,
the Giants drove Smokey Joe from
the field with the worst beating he
has ever had in his big league career.
In the first assult they ripped his
hide off with seven hits and six runs.
Before this fusillade of shrapnel and
cannister, Boston sat stunned and
crushed. The impossible had hap
pened. The world was coming to an
end. Gibralter could be toppled over
by human hands, for a ball club had
faced Joe Wood at home and "Shot
him to death within one round.
Conceding defeat after this shoal
of hits and runs, Stahl then derricked
Wood to give him his chance again
today, in a duel with Mathewson.
The big gun will blaze the eighth
and deciding game for his people and
it is almost a certainty that Wood
will oppose him.
Tesreau, working in a driving gale
which must have raced down from
one of Greenland's icy mountains
with a sting and a wip, was wildr un
steady and far below form. The
Red Sox hit him fiercely but bril
liant support pulled him through.
Wonderful work by Devore in
right cut him off at least two triples,
when Jeff was breaking badly, sav
ing a hogshead full of runs.
All through this rickety period
McGraw had Mathewson warming
up, but as the Giants continued to
whale the padding out of Hall, who
followed Wood, Jeff was never close
to the rim of dangen It was a
tough battle for any pitcher to work
as the gale ripped the field into a
swirling dust plate and blew the
ball around like a feather.
The Giants entered the seventh
battle with a world of confidence and
having fought their way to a long
lead were never in danger.

game was 32,694. The receipts were
