had the edge upon the Islanders all the
way yesterday. He held them to three
measly hits by the top trio in the bat
ting list, and they did not get a man
further than second base. He hit no
body and was stingy with his transpor
tation, while the team behind him
played errorless ball.
Howard Start Well.
Howard, for Rock Island, got away
well, but three-baggers by Vandineand
Miller and a single by "Dutch" Ahring
in the fourth broke up his game, and
there was no chance for the champs
after that, though they struggled hero
ically till the end, making no errors.

OUR GAS TO LIGHT EUROPE.
Scheme to Pipe It From Oklahoma and
Across the Atlantic.
It is within the realm of possibility
that within ten years continental En
rope will be supplied by gas for both
illuminating and power purposes sent
directly through a pipe line from Okla
homa. Alexander A. Eberson of St.
Louis, who recently secured a conces
sion to establish at Havre, France, the
first American packing house in Eu
rope, is now figuring on the feasibility
of supplying Europe with the natural
gas of the United States.
"Oklahoma already supplies the
states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Indiana
and the northwestern part of Texas
with natural gas," said Mr. Eberson,
"and there are also pipe lines from
Oklahoma to St. Louis and from In
diana to Pittsburg.
"My clients, who have immense
leases in the Indian Territory and who
supply the Standard Oil compnny with
oil, have made up their minds to pipe
their gas, if it is at all ssible, to
Europe. The gas does not cost any
thing, and we see bo reason why it
should not pay to lay a pipe line from
Oklahoma across Kansas, Missouri,
Illinois, Indiana. Ohio and Pennsylva
nia o New York and then across the
Atlantic to Europe. The supply of
natural gas is illimitable. When we

striking fragments as would naturally
whet one's appetite for the remainder.
For over a year I tiled hard to locate
those mysterious poems and enlisted
half a dozen book dealers In the
search. At last oue of them wrote me
that I was wasting time and that the
alleged quotations were merely Mr.
Kipling's little joke.
"In other words, he manufactured
'em to order and stuck thera at the top
of his tales for the sake of the odor of
erudition they-lent to the production

same thing, and so, for that matter.
