from - some unknown cause, and was
overturned. Conductor DeWitt was
riding on tfie pilot and sustained an
injury to his knee. The engineer and

the worse for the accident.' The

attempted holdup of the Pioneer

Casualties 200 Killed or Wounded in
Fight With Albanians.
London, April 9. The Standard'
Constantinople correspondent reports
renewed fighting between the Turkish
' troops and the clansmen threatening
Pristina. The Turkish losses are re
ported to be 200 killed or wounded, 40
men taken prisoners and two guns
captured by the enemy. The losses
of the Albanians are unknown. The

that played those of their rival tribes.
- Wagers were heavy.
So far as the Cherokees were con
cerned, they had several songs of bal
lad style relating the prizes their ath
letes would win in their contests with
other aborigines. One of these songs,
replete with such words as "h'gana
yua." "higanuyahi," "sakwili-tega,"
' "uwatutsuhl," "tsitukatasuni." 'ige
J , skiyu," "hu," etc., may be translated
into English as follows:
. What a fine horse I shall win!
I shall win a pacer!
' I shall be rid try? a pacer!
' I'm going to win a pretty ore! ,
A stallion for me to ridel
What a pretty one I shall win!
V What a pretty one I shall ride!
' How proud I'll feel when riding himl
I'm going- to win a stallion hu!
And I am positive that no one could
resist the beauties of the Indian base
ball song entitled "Yo Wi Danuwe,"
even though it lacked the "hu."
. So here you are.
As all three theories as to the origin
of the game are shown by authorities
i to be absolutely true, you can argue
for or against all three and be both
right and wrong at the same time.
What better opportunity for a wrangle
. could any life sized fan desire?
'But the foregoing has to do only
with the doubtful origin of baseball.
What about the end?
The end. did some one say? There
Is an old European legend which goes,
"See Naples and die." '
Verily, he who can prophecy that he
- will one day see an end to "the sport
of presidents" should share a like fata.

reason that the McCabe

C-B A La Spirite Corsets
At the present time we are making a special window
Exhibit of the justly famous C-B corsets.
Some three years ago when we first took the agency
for the now well known C-B A la Spirite corsets, we
hesitated about placing an order amounting to about
$100.00, as we then douDtea
if a corset so little known in
this section "would meet with
a ready sale. However, the
salesman who had been sent
' here to arrange matters with
us agreed if at the end of sixty
days we did not find them sell
ing that we could ship them
back. Well, we've never sent
any- back. Before the end of
the week after our very first
advertisement we sold nearly
$200 worth of these popular
garments, and since then, well,
we've never been able to keep
quite supplied with full assort
ments of the C-B A la Spir
ites. The selling has always
been rapid and the models
have been the very perfection
of smartest syles following
closely the latest Paris ideas
The C-B A la Spirite Corset is distinctively the cor
set of fashion, and the 1910 models far surpass any
thing they had prev-iously produced. K
Whatever your figure, slender, short, stout or tall,
there is a C-B model to mould the form in comfortable
harmony with the prevailing modes in dress.
Retail prices $1 to $8.
During' the entire week
of this C-B exhibit and
demonstration, we'll give
to every woman buying
a C-B corset, one of the
C-B Dollar Corsets, for
just half, 50.
A woman who likes to
have an extra corset for a
change to save her fine cor
set, can have one of these
splendid C-B dollar corsets
any day all week for 50c,
if buying any other C-B cor
set. Remember only 50c
BLACK is a recurring note in the
new French millinery. Facings of black satin
black velvet under brim or above brim. Black
plumes and black velvet bows of a touch of black somewhere'
is most frequently seen on the new Paris hats.
Almost as prominent
as the note of black is
the prevelance of plumes.
They droop and bend and
bow and sway like a love
ly forest, sometimes a
bright gilt ornament or a
rose will peep out from
beneath the feathered
The only discordant
note in these plumed hats
is possibly that of ex
travagance, but there's a
perfect harmony of beau
ty, and lots of real pleas
