WATS LEADS IH THE SINGING Last Day in the House Is Giv en Over to Singing Many Patriotic Airs. MANY SENATORS LOOK ON SIXTH DISTRICT CONGRESSMAN LEAVES SICK BED TO GO TO HOUSE TO LEAD IN GREAT CHOIR WORK. MURDOCK GETS ANOTHER BUYS THE STOCK OF E. & P. Traction Line Built by Perry J. Free man Has Been Sold to Murdock Marshall Syndicate of Lafayette Will Extend Line. Louis Ludlow, writing from Wash ington, says: Indiana men were conspicuously in the lime light when the first session of the Fifty-ninth congress faded into history Saturday. Representative "Jim" Watson, whose singing is pro nounced by Speaker Cannon the sweetest of all earthly melody, per formed in the role of choir leader in the House. The senators are too dig nified to permit singing in the Senate chamber, but many of them stole qui etly over to the House and enjoyed the feast of music. Watson stood in one of the aisles and beat time with an Imaginary baton. He left a sick bed to go to the House, and although the perspiration rolled in great beads from his face, his musical perform ance seemed to do him good. The fun started about 11:30 when the House took its first fifteen-minute recess. That was when Watson got up and turned loose the opening word: of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." Gen. Keifer of Ohio, who was speaker of the House longer ago than most peo ple care to remember, climbed over a dozen or so seats, plowed through a group of his colleagues and joined the choir leader. The general is proud of his singing and he -never loses an opportunity to exercise his vocal chords. Chairman Tawney of the Appropriations Com mittee, who was once a real actoiv and Olmstead of Pennsylvania, who thinks he missed his calling by not going on the concert circuit, joined in to help out Mr'. Watson. In a little while pretty nearly every body on the floor able to speak above a whisper, had joined in the refrain and the grand old song was thundered out by 300 voices until it shook the glass skylights.

A VERSATILE ATHLETE AS PITCHER, FIRST BASEMAN AND GOOD BATSMAN JACKSON HAS HELPED YALE TO MANY VICTORIES. The Indianapolis Star yesterday said: 'Fielding Vaughan Jackson, the Richmond, (Ind.,) boy who proved to be a wonderfully successful pitcher on the Yale varsity nine last season, has proven that he is one of the most versatile of college players by play ing a game at first base for Yale this year. In the deciding contest with Harvard last Tuesday his stick was the big factor in the Yale victory. He got three of his team's eight hits. Throughout the season he has been fielding and hitting in excellent style. An injury to his arm prevent ed lis pitching again this year, but he proved just as valuable to his team as an infielder. It will be re membered that last season, while pitching he defeated Harvard by a timely hit in the last stages of the game. "Jackson learned to play baseball on t.he town lots at Richmond, and he aledv acquired there a physique that made him, with comparatively little training a good football player. He learned the rudiments of the latter game at Exeter and had no difficulty in making the Yale team. His cour age and coolness while on the playing field are said by his admirers at Yale to be the factors in his makeup that made him a powerful member af any team. Jackson Good Sportsman. "Jackson is only 21 years old an Is declared by those acquainted with present undergraduare life at Yale to be one of the best sportsmen in the school. He is a charitable winner and a good loser. He never loses his head in any game, no matter how in ense the situation may be, and that Is largely what made him a winning pitcher and a great pinch hitter. When only 10 years old young Jackson let the baseball microbe sink deep Into his anatomy. It will never be removed unless "Old Age" turns an X-ray on him and destroys it. Spending nearly all his four years of "prep" work at Exeter save a short time spent at the Episcopal High School at Alexandria, a., Jack son made his name one that the alum ni of Exeter honor. The love for outdoor sports Impell ed him to try for the football eleven. He made it and showed wonderful strength and 'intuitive football sense.' But the latter did not save him from an injury that might have kept a youth of less physical strength out of athletics for the remainder of his life. He played baseball too, at Exeter and did well. Yale appealed to Jackson. He liked the stoicism that her athle tes possessed. He believed in her discipline and longed for the day he could walk from New Haven a Yale "grad." Makes Freshman Team. "Scarcely had he been at New Hav en a week before he made the fresh man football team. Throwing him self into the practice work on the gridiron he became a central figure in the hard scrimmage between the varsity and the "chopping block" ele ven. It was a labor of love with him to be a scrub. It was for Yale that he left his cuiticle along the gridiron. "But the less strenuous work of the diamond also appealed to him. Here too, Yale found an admirable candi date for high honors. He pitched so well that the coveted "Y" was his. But sickness, a sort of malaria, over took him, and for one season Yale was without his services in the big diamond encounters."

The work of putting in brick crossings along North Eleventh street is now finished. The National Road from West Fifth street to the entrance of Earlham cemetery, which was recently taken into the city, has been rolled and the grass on each side cut down.
