Philadelphia, Oct. 13. In the fading
sunlight of a beautiful October afteri
l neon, Harry Hooper of Capitola, Cal.,
yearning for the Golden Gate with all
the fervor of a native son, decided to
bring the world's series of 1915 to a
close. Hooper earns a tidy little livelihood
each summer by cohering right

American league. The honor of his ,
/- Inh ourl tho hnnnr of his; Ipa.ship were '
at stake this afternoon when he came j
to bat for the last time in the fifth j
game of a wonderfully hard fought !
series- i game tied fast and hard. Col.
Eppa Jeptha Rixey of iCharlottesville,
Va., was hurling for the faltering
Phillies and there was one out in the
ninth when Hooper faced the erratic
southpaw. The colonel made the batter
look foolish as he broke two fast
curves over the plate for called strikes,
and the home rooters were howling in
glee. This noisy approval evidently j
made Rixey overconfident, for a mo-1

to the ground and then with a long,
looping bound it went into the crowd
and Hooper trotted around the paths.
Ended the Series.
The Fhillie still were due a turn at
bat, but there was not a sonl among
the more than 20,000 fans crowded ir
the park who did not know that the
series was oyer and that the Boston
Red Sox had won another championship
of the world?four games to one.
Flustered, but still fighting, the standard
bearers of the National league
went through the formality of completing
the last inning, but not a man
could get to first. . . - '**'
This last game of the series was
one to stir the blood. It was a battle
from the jump with the issue ever in
the balance. Twice it seemed Philadelphia
had a winning margin, but
twice the. Ked Sox nammerea tneir
way to the front. Piling up three runs
in the eighth and ninth inning, they
got the decision, 5 to 4.
I It was a batting bee in which, the
Phillies got an early start. Their big
i war clubs were ringing merrily when
the Red Sox determined to take a hand
i in the affray. From that time forward
there was a crashing, clouting chorus
that sounded a sweet symphony in
the -ears of the fans. For the first
time in the series "the hum -of the
homer was heard m tne iana. rne i
Boston hitters got the range -of the
short centerfield and sent three -balls
hurtling there for the circuit. Hooper

blue October weather, the sweetest
month of all the year. James Whitcomb
Riley, the Roosier poet, was bora
in October and only recently the whole
State of Indiana joined in the celebration
of his 62nd birthday. He? too, was
fond of October, and why shouldn't
he be, as it was his natal month. He
wrote a poem on "Old October" and in
that poem occurs this stanza:
"I love old October so
I can't bear to see her go?
Seems to me like losin' some
Old-home relative, 'er chum?
'Pears like stort o' settin' by
Some old friend 'at sigh by sigh
Was a-passin' out o' sight
Into everlastin' night."
You see, I am sorter getting to like
Old October myself. But if you will!
read history and take note of it carefully
you will find most of the great
men were born in Febrlary and January,
and some few even in August.
(That's my month. See?)
Talking about James Whitcomb Riley,
he wrote another little poem about his
home town, and he was a great admirer
cf his home town and believed in stick- j
ing to it, and as all good men and good
women do, and as they should do. Stick
to your town and its people, they are
the ones that help you to make the
bread you eat, and then if you get in
trouble, theiy are the ones who are going
to come to your assistance. It
doesn't pay to run off after strange
gods. I am going to quote what he
said about his little hamlet, and I want
you Newberry people to take out "Tailholt"?and
by the way that is a pretty
good name, if you can't get any other
"holt,' why then take a "tailholt" and
hang on to it?and insert ^ewDerny
and then see and listen how the thing
would read. Here it is:
"You kin boast about yer cities, and
their stiddy growth and size^
And about yer county-seats, and business
And railroads and factories, and all
But the Tittle Town o' Tailholt is big
.. enough fer me/'
All of us in this town of Newberry
should feel that it is biz -enough for
me, and when we do not feel that way,
then -we should move on to the town
that is big enough to hold you. There's
no use remaining^ in a town when
you've outgrown it.
A white man of 'Union was sentenced
to six months o,\ the chaining Saturday
for slander. If all slanderers
could be rounded up and be siven the
same sentence, the good roads problem
would . be so 1< v ed.?uVew berry, Observer.

And then, mr dear Mr. Editor, who
-would make tne rations to feed them,
and who would,act as guards and jailers
and officers, if you put all of them
to working the roads? We couldn't
live by roads alone. ^
And, then, if all the prohibition people
were just good temperance people,
what a.glorious time we would have.
I mean temperate in all things. Not
only in the matter of drink, and yet I
1'nnw o/-irr??k r?r>rwh i hi H rm i who are

prohibitionists for the other fellow,
and some who are political prohibitioniets.
They want to take care of
the other fellow and keep him from
his glass of beer, but they would like
to have a little for their own poor
stomach's sake, and they have authority
that is good for its use. Talking
about temperance, I read a little squib
a while ago from the Birmingham AgeHerald
which is apropos in this connection.
It ran something like this:
"Dr. Shorter preached a sizzling serman
"I never before heard a man use so
"What was his subject?"
reopen the dispensaries tomorrow
morning. Every dispensary in Charleston
county has been closed since
Saturday in accordance with the governor's
orders given Sunday on account
of the primary election of Tuesday.
And so it goes. The loudest advocates
of temperance are sometimes the
most intemperate of men and women.
But I reckon it is all right, and for
the best, or it wouldn't be. At any rate
it suits me all right.
And this reminds me to remark that v
I read a little placard in a street car
the other day that ran something like
this: "Any tool can give advice, hut it
takes gray matter to use it." Now,
dear reader, you can make the application.
I am giving the advice and I
hope you have the gray matter to use
it. And to give you another little prOvor'h
frnm r?lH man Tiirvo-onoc T,??
"The sun, too, shines into cesspools,
and is not polluted." Old Diogenes, I
think, is the man who went around in
the broad daylight with a lantern looking
for an honest man. It seems to
me that I have read something like
that at some time or other. There is
a lot of truth in this proverb, even it
the old man was odd enough to go
around in the sunshine with a lantern
looking for his honest man. If
you want to help those who need your
help you must get down next to them,
and be able to do so without getting
any of the pollution which they have.
You can't reach them by preaching at
them on Sunday, when they are not
present, and can't hear what you say.
It is a mistake too many of ouf ministers
make. I remember on one occasion
f a long time ago, a minister
same to this town, and he was invited
to a dinner at which were seyeral citizens
and good men, but men who rarely
went to church, and this preacher made
the remark that he was glad of the
opportunity thus afforded to meet
these men, for in that way he would
be in better position to reach them and
to help them?that if he could not b3
thrown with them there would be no
nnnnrtnnttv for him to reach them.
And there you are. That remark made
me think. An<J he was not hurt by the
contact. The sun can shine into a
cesspool and not be polluted. Think
of this, you ministers, whose mission
it should be to seek out those who are
lost. The Great Preacher, if I am not
mistaken, said something, about Ho
came to save those who were lost and
not those who needed no salvation.
This in answer to the Pharisees who
could not understand why he associated
with sinners. But I did not start
out to preach a sermon and I beg the
pardon of the preachers.

Mr. Wells Secures New Charlie Chaplin
Comedies and T. L. S. E. Faitores.
"The Valley af Lost Hope^
Mr.' H. B. Wells, the movie man,
went to Atlanta this week and booked
some excellent features for his play- ^
hous^. In speaking of them Mr. Wells ' .
"While in Atlanta I booked the following
Charlie Chaplin comedies:
'^By the Sea," for November 13.
1 ''Jitney Elopement," for ^fotfember
A A _ . >
"The Tramp," for November 27.
"In the Park," for December 11.
"The Charley Chaplin comedies are. ,
not regular, but sometimes come only
once a month. Therefore I had to
take them as I could secure them.
"I also booked some of the best and ,
newest of the IV. L. S. E. feature?, Jp
which, beginning next week I will run
on Thursdays instead of Fridays as
heretofore. Some of these have not
been released yet. I will furnish you a
list later. The feature which I will
run Friday, the 15tht "The Valley of
Lost Hope," a five-jreel Lubin, was only
released Wednesday, which will be the
first time this picture has gone through
the machine. It is a very epecfcfcular
picture. I also selected a good program
from the World Film corporation
for Tuesday of next month. These
subjects are also much newer than I
have been using heretofore."
Mr. Wells also secured some new
parts for hi6 machine and, infacts, he
always had a fine projection and would
compare favorably with those anywhere.
Fat?My word, Tom, you have got thin!
Skin?That's nothing; you sn'ould see
