PUTNAM SHUT OUT. Score 24-0 in Favor of Windham High School. OBITUARY. Thomas P. Smith. Thomas P. Smith died Fridav morn ing at 5.30 o'clock after a lone illness. Always energetic and diligent In busi ness affairs, sympathetic and kind in times of sorrow, he won for himself the regard of all. Mr. Smith was born Feb. 3. 1S66, a son of Edmund and Mary (Sweeney) Smith of Hamnton. He, attended school until 17 years old and then became clerk for Albert fiartson in .North Windham movinr tn Willimantic about eighteen months lat er and going tn work in the twisting room at the Willimantic Linen com pany's mills. Later he loft the mill and became eateman at the TTninn street crossing and remained for a long time, conducting a confectionery store with J. F. Smith, a cousin, at the corner of JacKson and Union streets. He next learned the blacksmith's trade, serving an apprentieesnip under A. R. Burn ham.

A. gymnasium Iriday afternoon before the largest matinee crowd of the sea son. It was the last home game for Windham in the Windham county in terscholastic series and excitement was at a high pitch. A shutout was regis tered against Putnam the first half, the score being 24-0 in favor of Wind ham. The second half, for some few moments, looked as though the shut out would repeat, but Putnam finally managed to shoot three baskets from the floor. The contest, if it may be styled as such, was very fast and ex ceptionally free from flagrant rough ness. Windham's players had the vis itors at their mercy all the time and executed" series after series of bewil dering plays that had Putnam com pletely baffled. They never at any time had a look-in for the upper hand. Every man in the home team's lineup scored irom the floor with the excep tion of Bradbury, who went into the game late in thor last half. Leonard, Captain Kelley and Richmond shot baskets almost at will, each one ot tne trio caging some sensational shots. J. Rich, Sherman and McDonald played beRt for Putnam. Windham now leads the league and should she lose to Killingly at Daniel son the race for the pennant would be a tie and in all probability the deciding game would be played on a neutral floor. Norwich has been mentioned as the most probable place for such a contest, for it would certainly be a bat tle royal, with honors about even. A record crowd for the year would surely turn out and Windham would be there with a good delegation of rooters.

Catching twenty-two pickerel out of one hole In the ice Is considered going some, but the feat has been accom plished by John Casey, Charles Thomp son and Ernest Thompson, and the fish were all above the legal limit, too. This Is not a fish story about a string taken out of a stock pond or by some other method equally as easy as spend ing money. The twentv-two fish were caught In the Five Mile river, long de spised as a place for the sport, and credited as being fished to death. The lovers of Ice-vfishing .who have been chasing all over eastern Connecticut with the added expense of horse and automobile hire in an endeavor to bring home record beating strings will find little consolation in this truthful fish story.
