Last Friday night the team rcpre senting Cumberland Valley State Normal School of Emmittsburg, Pa., came to town and engaged our Collegians in a game of basketball. The game was hard fought, the first half standing 23 to 17 in favor of the visitors. The locals were off form in every department, aad consequently the lads from the Keystone State had little trouble in running up the score in the last half. In their left forward the Normal School has a fast and aggressive man. During the course *>f the evening he caged the leather ten times. The local team was shooting some itself, nearly everyone on the team getting three or four goals. The final score was 60 to 35. Last night the Collegians journeyed to Hagerstown and took the measure of the Elks' Club, of that place, 22 to 11. The first half of the game was slowed up a good deal by the referee, who called 19 fouls on the Collegians, and the best that the Elks' marksman could do out of the 19 was 1. Then Rush shot three straight goals, Melester came through with one from guard, and Moler tossed in a fouli The first half ended 9 to 5 in favor of Shepherdstown. At the start of tho second half the Collegians pulled themselves together and ran the score up to 16 before the Maryland contingent could register one lone point from the foul line. We then got in some good pass work and drove tho enemy to cover, using our five-man defense, thus farcing them to shoot long shots. They were not very accurate, and only secured one goal by this method. Rush played an exceptionally good game at center, easily getting the tip off of four different men that were sent against him. In fact, the whole team nlaved well nnre thev got under way and acclimated themselves to the splendid floor in the new Y. M. C. A. building. Friday night at 8 o'clock the Waynesboro Alpha Club will play the local team in the community building. This team is one of the very best in Southern Pennsylvania. They defeated the home club in the opening game of the season, and we are going to try to even the count with them Friday night. Last year we tied with them in the number of games played. Farm Fires. An estimated loss of $40,000 was caused by fire about 6 o'clock last Monday evening when it destroyed a hay bam, silo, cattle barn, horse barn and a dorn crib, together with 30 head olj registered cattle, including a $3,000 Guernsey bull, 14 head of valuable horses, 1,200 bushels of wheat, several tons of hay, a large quantity of corn, wagons and farming implements, harness, etc., on the farm of J. Forney Young, near Hagerstown, tenanted by Roy Stouffer. A hog pen was the only building actually saved, together with a few hogs, a number of sheep and four horses, which were led from the burning buildings. The fire wa?f one of the most spectacular that has occurred in that section for some time. Hundreds flocked to the scene from Hagerstown and the vicinity. The sky was brightly illuminated for miles. A line of automobiles a mile long crowded the pike leading to the farm. The origin of the blaze cannot be determined. Many theories are advanced, among them that it was started by tramps. This is the second time that fire has visited the farm, the barn having been destroyed eleven years ago. Fire Monday night destroyed the barn on the Bishop place near Ganotown, in Berkeley county, the contents belonging to H. L. Stotlcr. About 500 bushels of corn was lost and several hogs burned to death. Mr. James W. Rothwell, formerly of Martinsburg, now of New York, and Mrs. Eleanor Josephine Conk, of the latter city, were married last Thursday. The groom is a son of the late C. P. Rothwell, a cold storage man of Martinsburg and prominent in business there. IN MEMOR1AM. MILLER?In loving memory of our dear sister. Emma Lee Miller < Mamie>. daughter of the late John T. and Mary C. Miller, who entered into rest February 13. 1920. A sincere Christian, she lived hef religion, and her life was one of sacrifice, self-denial and devotion to duty and high ideals. She was a devoted daughter, sister and faithful friend, and though quiet and unassuming, she injected her personality into the lives around her, and by her unfailing interest and uniform cheerfu'ncss and reliance on God radiated happiness and j harmony. She was loved and revered as a mother by her younger sisters and brothers, and they will ever cherish her memory. By Her Sisters and Brothers. PUBUC^SflLE. ' miciiuing io discontinue farming.
