About 11:30 a. m. yesterday, as Mr.

was stricken with paralysis and fell
to the street. He was removed to his
home In the patrol wagon.
About fifteen minutes before this
William Boyton, a colored main
cleaner, employed by tho City Cas
Company, was knocked down and run
over by ti runaway team, the property
<>f William Starkey. This accident oc?
curred near the corner of Church and
charlotte streets. He was taken home

bicyclist and a wagon, but the results
were not serious.

will be kicked and squeezed and fallen
upon with all the energy and vim of

in League Park. The game will be
called at 3 p. m. sharp.
The boys from across the Elizabeth

I to turn the tables on their friends, the
I Portsmouth team, and do them up

j both teams are confident of winning.
I Norfolk has been practicing stead
' ily ever since the Christmas game, and
; Is endeavoring to get Devlin, the grrrrr
| Georgetown fullback, to 10111? down
j and play with them. Devlin, it will
be remembered, practically won the
I game from Virginia by his superb
; kicking. Portsmouth, on the other
j hand, has been far from idle, and
j those who see the game will no doub'.

expected to keep tire same lineup.
Norfolk has made changes in the cen?
