Merry Quartet of Skaters, Three

Earl Rosslter, Employe of the First

Three Floundering Young

pations of four young ladies, as they
whiled away a few .pleasant hours
yesterday afternoon, on the frozen sur
face of the government ditch, a short
distance above the first lock.
Shortly after three o'clock yester
day afternoon, four young ladies, Miss
Elsie Bode, Miss Clara Trott of the
Keokuk Savings Bank, Miss ISmmis
Nlvling, general secretary and Miss
Meta Kummer, physical director of
the Y. W. C. A. with skates and
smiles wended tlieir way to the qanal
where they spent an enjoyable time
cavorting about the smooth mirror.
One. of the -party, Miss Kummer, was
delayed behind the other members dur
ing the sport, adjusting a skate strap.
Suddenly and without warning, the
dreaded c-r-a-c-k, splash and gulp of
the apperature's mouth, that is so
familiar to the old skatesman, re
sounded up the canal, and three lad
ies, with simultaneous expressions of
disgust and almost horror, of the sit
uation, found themselves floundering
in the deep of Uncle Sams' waterway,

man, Karl itossiter, who is employed
at the first lock shops ,put in an ap
pearance and gallantly went to the
rescue of Che immersed young ladies
and succeeded by careful maneuver
ing, in pulling the cold members of
the skating party from the icy water.
It was all done so quickly that before
they knew it, the skaters who had re
ceived a severe wetting, up to theii
shoulders, were seated comfortably in

The awakening this week in the
game of pool brings to mind the fact
that pool and billiards are not given
the relative standing among other
pastimes that they should have, when
it is taken into consideration the num

sport. Keokuk has quite a large army

no attention has been given the game.
Now that a league has been formed it
is expected that people will turn their
attention to it and follow the science
and progress from this time on. It is
interesting to note the large army of
followers the cue games have in the
United States. There are approximate
ly '60,000 billiard parlors in the coun,
try including public and private hails,
lodges, .M. C. A. and the like. In
smaller cities there are fewer tables,
while in larger cities they are more
numerous, but the number in all would
reach the 300,000 figure. Each of
these tables to be self supporting
must bring in an income of two dol
lars per day. The average charge is
fifty cents per hour. That means
that not less than four men per table,
and a minimum of 1,200,000 men
throughout the country play bil
liards and pool one hour each day.
That vast army is required to pay
the running expenses of 60,000 rooms.
The same men do not play pool Dr bil
liards every day, and it is safe, there
fore, to estimate those who actually
play the game two or three days
every week at not lesB than 3,000,000.

Quincy Whig: The crack bowling
team at K'eokuk comes down this
evening to meet the picked team of
the O'Brien alleys, which will repre

The regular scheduled match in the
Handicap league at the alleys v.-ill
start at 7:30 o'clock this evening, in
order to allow time for the big match
to be rolled in. The Keokuk team is
the one that defeated the locals earlier
in the winter, and a spirited contest
is looked for. The Quincy team will
be composed of Hoffman, O'Brien,
Gu8 VandenBoom, Joe VandenBoom
and Frank Bruggeman. In the game
between the Cubs and the Globes last
night not any of the Globe bowlers
showed up and only two of the Cu*
were ready for action. The former
team was given its average score,
while the two Cubs carried the aver
ages of their team-mates, winning all
three games.

Tuesday night is repentent.
Last evening Proprietor Thomas
Gray received a summons from Very
Rev. James Gillespie, pastor of St.
Peter's Catholic church, the character
of which he did not know at the time.
Arriving at the pastor's home he was
rewarded by the return of twenty dol
lars, or Just about half of what was
stolen, and received the promise that
the balance of the stolen money would
be returned In full at an.early date.
In return Mr, Gray promised that all
prosecution will be dropped, although
he himself, and possibly no one else
but the priest is aware of the per
son's identity. Mr. Gray has fulfilled
his part of the agreement, having, no

prevent any attempts to apprehend
the party.
Tells Part of Story.
Mr. Gray's visit to the parish house
of Father Gillespie resulted in him
learning a few of the details

priest, that the party, for thcxe was
but one intimately associated with
taking the money, was under the in
fluence of liquor at the time. He
commited the act and then it is
thought went and spent quite a part of
the money with friends. During the
day he realized the full gravity of his
crime and grew repen'-snt. Visiting
Father Gillespie he confided In Lim

Near to Pastor.
In speaking to a reporter about the
matter today Mr. Gray voiced in a
strong manner the close confidence
which the party had in the pastor of
St. Peter's Catholic church. He was
not reticent about expressing his
views as to this phase in the Cath
olic religion, which, he 6ays, works a
greater good than anything else. The
complete confidence that this man had
in the pastor and the fact that he
went and truthfully told the whole
story, will serve to materially change
him, and make his unlawful act prob
ably the last one that he will com
