Denton Looks Good. DWenton was at her best Thursday and all visitors were given a loyal welcome. The key of the city was turned over to the guests. Broadway was appropriately decorated. The town itself made a favorable impres sion on all newcomers. Its size was a matter of surprise to many, and when it is considered that the town Ims grown to its present proportions period of two years, the citizens re worthy of congratulation. The haracter of the residences and some f the business houses is especially the-high class, while there are some busi ness houses in the little town that would fit in well in a city of 11,000 | population. I While much of the wheat in the I nearby region ha been threshed, there were many shocks of grain visible in the fields.

Tin Philadelphia Nationals, new chain pious of their league, bad some good practice today in preparation for the world's series games which begin here on Friday. They wound up the regular playing season by defeating Brooklyn twiee, while a small but critical crowd looked on. Alexander, who is expected to carry the pitching burden of the Phillies, worked only one inning, the | ninth, of the first game. He merely went in to warm up and made no ef fort to extend himself. He is in as good condition as he lias been at any time this year. He lias done compara tively little twirling in the last two weeks. Manager Pat Moran prefer ring that the Nebraskan conserve bis strength for the heavy work to come. Pitcher Mayer who, with Chalmers, is expected to help Alexander, bring the world's title to Philadelphia, re lieved Deniaree, who started the j game. Mayer also took things easy, 1 but held Brooklyn in check. Inci dentally, Demaree, who was to be i given $.100 bonus if lie won 11 games, I failed (o get the prize by a narrow ] margin. He needed only one game to win, but Brooklyn batted him hard and be was taken out. With the regular schedule out of the way. Manager Moran will devote tomorrow and Friday morning to keep ing Ills men in condition. The fact that Whttted played in both, games today was encouraging to the fans. Wbitted injured his side in the final drive for the pennant and it was believed for a time that be ! bad either broken or dislocated a rib I Nielioff, whose legs were none too ] good, is also reported ready to play the game of bis life. The one great mystery that re ! mains to be solved is the condition of j Bill Killifer's arm. The big catcher's ■ throwing arm "went dead" several ] weeks ago and while he has since ap | peared in uniform lie has not at i tempted to catch in any of the j regular games. Killier says bis arm I is "coming around all right," but the I skeptics would feci much better if | they could see him in action, j All the Philadelphia players are i confident of winning the world's title ! Alexander will pitch the first game i and with him in good form they do not see how lie can lose. What lit tle betting there lias been on the se ries so far shows that the odds have prevailed in Boston's favor, but are gradually shortening. Some betters now want even money. The weather man still is trying to put a damper on the opening of the series. He predicts cloudy skies and possible rain for Friday. CDDS ON BOSTON. BOSTON, Oct. (1.—Kncouraged by the showing of the Red Sox twirlers in the games with New York today, odds again were offered tonight on a Boston tuocess in the world's se ries.

TO EXHIBIT THE MUCH INTEREST IN THE MILWAU KEE'S NEW ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES. HAVE MAXIMUM OF EFFICIENCY It is confidently expected that the new electric engines for the Milwau kee's extensive electrification pro ject through Montana and Idaho, will be received this month ami will be on public exhibition. They will be very interesting to see for they represent the largest and heaviest types of motive power ever construct ed. They represent something unique and entirely different in the trans portation world, and in construction and appearance will bold a keen int erest for railroaders as well as the general public. Arrangements will be made to ex hibit one of these engines before they are sent on, in the passenger station at the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul depot. The electric locomotive pos sesses the greatest efficiency within itself of any engine ever made. The big Mallett engines, which are the greatest of steam locomotives, have to take a decidedly second place. The electric engine weights 94 per cent, of the combined Mallett engine and tender and has a tonnage rating of 23.5 per cent, greater, and has a speed with drag tonnage of approxi mately 33 to 50 per cent greater. Fur thermore, it does not stop for coal or water, and operates equally well in either direction, thus eliminating turntables and yard delays. CHIEF CLERK RETURNS. C. A.
