Outlook for Tri City Champion
ship is Very Bright.
Sterling high 'school comes for the
next battle with the local high school
team which will take place at Island
City park Saturday. Little is known
of the strength of the Sterling lads
and their record thus far this season.
The' boys neverttieless will be prepar
ed for them. The team's speed when
on the offensive and strength on de
fense will be used to advantage. That
the members of the high school team
deserve great credit for their work in
the fust giimes of Hie season, those
who witnessed Hie contests can say,
their accuracy in catching the ball on
the forward pass as well as punts, and
the lack of fumbling, causing much
favorable comment. They have been
receiving excellent training and their
work shows it at all times. Not only
have they leaned to use the forward
pass to good advantage, but their work
on defense is especially good. Coach
Hall feels very much encouraged at
the outlook for the championship of

THREE BULLETS FAILED
Sterling Farmer Shattered Bones Be
neath Brain and Still Lives,
.lejiti Duden. a farmer living near
Sterling despondent over an incurable
disease of the stomach, made an at
tempt in end his life Saturday night
by sending three bullets through his
head, all three missing the brain. The
three slugs entered the right side of
the face, just below the temple, and
glanced against the lower skull bone,
and deflected taking a downward
course. In their passage they tore the
right eye from its socket, it bulging
out on the face, and destroyed the
optic nerve. The nasal passage was
completely destroyed and the left
cheek bone was broken and splintered.
The destruction of the nasal passage,
together with the other injuries will
ultimately cause his death. iIov.v -ver,
Mr. Duden is still conscious anl says
that he is suffering no pain.
