The Twin-City Bowling leagie open
ed the season with a flourish last
night. The Cubs, who easily copped
lienors last season, hoisted the 1912
pennant at the Harms alleys and cel
ebrated the event by taking three
straights from the Reliables. They
did it so easily that It listened like
the oiden days of last winter, when
they chased ail opponents. Lau of the
"Molines took high single game score
with 228 pins. Lau a'so registered
200 pins in his first game. In addition
he took high series average with a
grand total of ."94 pins. Salzmann of
the Cubs, although hanging up some
good scores, was net down to real
form. He grabbed off a 202 score in
his second game and grabbed a total
cf b59 pics for the evening. The
cores were decidedly good, consider
ing the fact that it was the first try
out of the reason. The Cross Country
Stock Leader contest, scheduled for
the Hastings alleys, was postponed
until Sunday afternoon, owing to the
death of Ed Bleuer of the Stock Lead
ers. The scores:

The kid has secured the services of
Ed Kelly, an eastern man, as mana
ger for this season, and several
matches are now being arranged.
Page broke into the mat game In the
spring of 1911. , Since that time he
has been piUed against such men as
Peck of Burlington, Fischer, Sharkey
and K. O. Brown of Chicago, defeat
ing them all. His one defeat In two
years was at the hands of Hurley, the
Albany mat demon a year ago.
"Lonie" expects to wipe out that de
feat, and bis manager is arranging for
another match with Hurley, which
will probably be staged New Year's

That was the solution suggested
yesterday by President Johnson of the
American league on his return from a
brief vacation in the woods of Michl
can. He did not favor the suggestion
reported to have been made by Chair
man Herrmann of the commission to
call off the world's series in case
players permitted the misuse of their
names for coin, but was of the opin
ion the club owners and managers
would take action to ctop the evil
rather than have their teams crippled.
"The purpose is not to prevent play

PRIVATE BANK AT
Trouble of Institution With De
posits of $120,000 Stirs
Rockford. hi., Oct. 3. Citizens of
Ogle county towns were 6tirred yes
terday by the announcement of the
closing of the Bank of Creston, a pri
vate institution owned by George E.
Stocking of Rochelle, and carrying de
posits of $120,000.
The bank was closed after friends,
including former business associates
of Stocking, had gone over his finan
cial affairs with him. They have ex
pressed the opinion that his assets are
more than sufficient to meet all de-
interest of the late P. H. Hohenadel,
Jr., with whom he was associated In
these industries. He id one of the
three executors of the estate of Mr.
Hohenadel, who died about a year ago.
Included in Stocking's assets are
1.200 acres of farm land adjacent to
Rochelle, valued at $250 an acre in
which he lias a large equity.
Mr. Stocking establihsed the bank at
Creston about ten years ago. He has
been rated for several years as one of
Ogle county's wealthrest citizens. It
was said tonight there has been no
talk of r. receivership or bankruptcy

effects of terrible burns which she
had received, which it was hoped
cou'.d have been cured through skin
grafting, little Irma Boxtaele died Wed

take her home with them.

could do, tie little girl was started
