With first place In the Commercial
Bowling league cinched, and with nu
merous high scores tucked up their
sleeves, the Colts seem to be intent on
setting a few more records. Two
weeks ago the team rolled 2,832, the
high score of the season. Last night
they set a new mark, just 20 pins in"
advance of the old one. And this
was done in spite of the fact that the
captain of the team, Arthur Salzmann,
was confined to his home by illness.
The team rolled with a "kitty," and
the latter performed admirably, secur
ing 516 pins.
The opponents of the Colts last
night were the Pretzels, and they
were simply snowed under. In the
first game they came close to winning,
falling short by a margin of 24 pins.
In the other games they were left
hopelessly behind. In individual
work, H. Wich led the field, securing
a total of 627 pins, which is only 15
short of the record for the season.. J.
Wich was a close second with 614
pins. Patting rolled 54S and E. A.
Wich 547. For the Pretzels, Brandt
was in the lead with 527 pins.

Manager Barney Brotman of the
Peoria Herald Transcript: That
truth is stronger than fiction was re
vealed by L S. Pension Examiner
Charles F. Cain yesterday in the ef
forts of a widow of a civil war vet
eran to obtain a pension and the
story of the life of a soldier since
the close of the civil war.
The young soldier upon his dis
charge from the army married a girl
a mere child of 13 years, settling
down near Pottstown. After six
months 'time meddlesome neighbors
interfered, causing a quarrel which
resulted in the separation of husband
Shortly after the parting a child
was born to the young wife, and fol
lowing this she dropped out of sight
and knowledge of her whereabouts
could not be obtained by her husband
and old acquaintances. The husband
remained single until 1881. when he
again married, in the same neighbor-

Upon his death the widow

to substantiate her claim as his
widow she was required to prove that
the first wife was either dead or di
vorced. She admitted her inability
to establish the fact of death and
stated that she did not learn of the
former marriage until some time af
ter her marriage to the soldier. She
declared that she understood that the
first wife was dead.
Upon these statements of facts the
pension bureau ordered the claim
for special investigation, to deter-
,ne a8 to the probable deatn or pog.
Bible divorce, before the remarriage
of the soldier. After considerable
work in tracing the many fruitless
clues given by friends and acquain
tances of the deceased and his for
mer wife, the examiner learned that
the child by the first marriage had
been left by lta mother at the Peoria
county farm and from there was tak-
! en by a family livlnr in one of
j Peoria's suburbs, and had grown to j
! young womanhood. Upon interview- (

Tri-City Railway Planning Erection
of Model Plant in East Part
That the Tri-City Railway com
pany will eventually resume the build

in the tri-city lines is the statement
by President J. F. Porter. At present
the cars are made by the Cincinnati

Railway company are erected on Fifth
President Porter says the in

plant a model one, however,

will manufacture there. Detailed
plans have not been prepared, accord

her that six years' separation was
equivalent to divorce, she was induc
