Game—Castro Relieves Wilhelm
In the Seventh Inning.
Meeks Caught.
Before an audience of which the sup
porters of each team were about equally
divided, the Barons defeated Pell City
yesterday afternoon by a score of 7 to 0.
To the credit of the fast amateur ag
gregation, It Is said that the game was
a good and fast one, with much of the
honor going to the visitors. McFarland of
Pell City pitched an excellent game, sev
eral of the hits obtained by the Barons
being of the "dinkiest" nature. His sup
port at critical times went to pieces, as
all amateur aggregations will when play
ing with professionals, and In this way
the majority of the seven runs obtained
by the locals were made.
For the visitors, Darrell Pratt, short
stop, one of the fastest amateur play
ers of the south, starred In the field and
at the bat. His work was exceptionally
good, and when, by a daring stab, he
robbed Vaughn of a hit through the in
field, the manager was loud In his praise.
Seaborn, In center, played a good game,
too, one of his catcfies being of the phe
nomenal order.
For the Barons, Meeks was used behind
the bat, while Wilhelm did the greater
part of the twirling. Vaughn began the
game at first, but w«» afterward relieved
by Walters, while Alcoclt covered sec
In .the seventh inning Castro relieved
Wilhelm In the box. while the regular
pitcher played short.
All In all. the game was Interesting
throughout. The fans who attended were
enthusiastic in their "rooting." Some
merriment was injected into the struggle,
and the afternoon passed pleasantly
enough. The Barone will now begin leav
ing for home on every train. Walters
leaves today for O'Fallon, 111. Oyler and
Vaughn leave tonight, the first for Penn
sylvania, and the second for Cincinnati.
Manager Pratt gave out the informa
tion that his son. Darrell, who played
short yesterday afternoon, would leave
next week for the Georgia Tech. The
young man will try for the team next
spring, and his admirers here beiieve that
he will have no trouble In making good.

Tuscaloosa, September 18.—(Special.)—
The university football squad Is being
put through the hardest work, the warm
weather being taken into consideration,
that it has ever had this early in the
season. Coaeh Pollard is determined to
have every man In trim when the whistle
blows for the kickoff in the first game,
and he is bending every effort toward
rounding the men into shape.
With the adoption by the Athletic asso
ciation of its new constitution and the
election of officers for the coming year,
interest in football seems to have been
revived among the students, and the
squad grows daily in point of numbers
and size of the men. Each afternoon a
fast and scrappy scrub game is played
between two picked teams. As the race
for places is warm between several candi
dates some Interesting games are wit

lowing partial schedule:
October 6.—Maryville. Campus.
October 20.—Vanderbilt-. Nashville.
November 3.—Mississippi A. & M.
November 17.—Auburn. Birmingham.
Thanksgiving—Tennessee. Birmingham.
Efforts are being made to add several
other games to this schedule, among them
being Mercer university and the Univer
sity of Georgia.
Hazing troubles have about quited down
and those who were fearing that they
would be summoned to the president’s of
fice are beginning to rest easy. A total
of five men were dismissed before—in
the opinion of those who rule—the home
sick rats and freshies were safe from
the brutal sophomores. One of these men
was dismissed permanently, while the
others were indefinitely suspended. A peti
tion for their reinstatement was at one
time discussed by some students, but
no steps along this line were ever taken.
The people of Tuscaloosa regret very
much to hear that James Heyworth is
reported in a dying condition at his home
In Chicago as the result of an automobile
accident. It seems that his machine, which
was very large, collided with another ma
chine. both running at a terrific rate of
speed. The accident occurred on a dark
road in Rogers park.
Mr. Heyworth is well remembered here
as a member of the firm of Christie, Lowe

in the Warrior river between here and

years, brought his bride here and he and

This is the season that the fall garden
should be looked after and planted. Most
of the readers of this paper live where
It Is possible, with the proper efforts, to
have fresh vegetables right from their
gardens the greater part of the year.
There is, howevr, this fact that the grow
er should not overlook, that the first crop
of vegetables consumes a vast amount of
both plant food and moisture, so that It
becomes necessary to supply these for the
later fall or winter crops of vegetables.
PX'ery farmer should keep on hand and
ready for Immediate use, a large quantlty
of the compost, as described in a former
paper, and as soon as one crop Is removed
from the soli, spread on a liberal supply of
this well rotted compost, break the soli
deep and harrow It very fine. This thor
ough preparation of the seed, bed will
draw and conserve moisture, and this In
sures success with fall plantings. Much,
in every way, depends upon this thorough
preparation of the seed bed. This prepar
ation of the soil for fall crops is even
more Important than It Is for the early
spring crops.
As the time Is short for the growing
of these fall crops, everything possible
ought to be done to get the seeds to ger
minate quickly and to give the young
plants a quick and vigorous growth. There
are other points also to be observed in
this matter of fall plantings. Seed should
be planted deeper than Is necessary for
the earlier plantings. In this, however,
the grower will or should be governed by
the character of his soil; light or loose
sandy soils require the seeds to be covered
deeper and the soil pressed upon them
more firmly than would he required for
heavy clay soils. A good rule for cover
ing the seeds in heavy clay soils would
bo to cover about three times the diameter
of the seed and press the soil firmly upon
tho seed, while for the light sandy soils,
twice this depth might answer.
Comforts of the Garden.
As to the value and comforts to be de
rived from a well managed garden, they
are many. A garden of vegetables fur
nishes a good part of the ltvtng on the
farm, or should be made to do so. Fresh
vegetables and fruits are both healthy,
and as stated, a well regulated rotation
of crops will give a succession of fine veg
etables tho entire year In many sections
of our country. This Is especially true of
the southern states of America, Why so
many people are careless or Indifferent
about providing these things Is a mystery,
and why so many will deny themselves
the many luxuries and comforts of life
when the opportunity Is right before them
for living better, is still a greater mys
If there is any man In the whole world
who should live like a king, It Is the man
on a farm In this great country of ours,
where he may hove many of the good
things of the world at a very Utttle ex
pense and some labor. The farmer in this
country can have all the fresh fruits ami
vegetables, wine, cider, milk, honey, but
ter, poultry and fresh eggs that his fam
ily can use. by doing a little labor, prac
ticing economy, and by looking after these
things at the right time and in the right
way. I will mention a few of the many
vegetables that may be planted in tho
There are few better vegetables than
the asparagus, and It comes at a time
when fresh vegetables are highly relished.
The fall season Is the best time for plant
ing beds of asparagus roots. The seed for
the roots should have been planted In tho
early spring, and the plants kept well
cultivated so that the roots may be ma
tured by early fall, when they should be
taken up and planted In permanent beds,
where they are expected to remain. The
soil for asparagus beds should be broken
deep, twenty Inches, and a vast amount
of well rotted compost, or barnyard ma
nure worked Into the soli. In addition to
this air-slacked lime should be used at
the rate of forty or fifty bushels per acre.
Furrow out deep trenches, lay the roots
out straight, parting them at the crown,
and lay half out each way In the trench;
cover shallow and as the plants grow
work the fine rich soil In around them un
til the trench Is filled up level. The rows
should not be less than four feet apart
and the plants about three feet apart In
the row. This plan Is for growing on a
large scale for market, and where horse
cultivation can be used. Smaller beds for
family use may he spaded up and the
plants set closer. A good asparagus bed
once established will last for years, so
that It Is Important that no njlBtake he
made about getting the bed started right
and In keeping It right. In the spring
when the plants are ripe, then mow off
and give the bed a good top dressing of
well rotted manure. It Is often much
chenper to buy the plants from some
nearby nurseryman than It Is to grow
As to varieties, there Is little choice,
the mammoth white and Conover's colos
sal are both good.
• Beans.
Fine snap beans can be had up to frost
In great abundance, by making plantings
at Intervals of from a week to ten days.
There are a great many fine sorts to se
lect from. The pole beans are usually best
In quality. The Uma or butter bean may
[ be planted late In the Bummer of early
fall when It, too, will give good crops un
til frost.
The turnip varieties of beets may be
planted in early fail when they will give
fine, tender bulbs, far superior In quality
to the ones brought over from the spring
plantings. Brocoli, cabbage, collards, cu
cumbers and carrots may all be grown In
the falj.
Late plantings of cucumbers give the
finest fruits for pickles.
Mustard, kale, onions and spinach are
all fine fall and winter vegetables.
Then there is the radish, turnip and to
mato that come right along in the order
of good fall vegetables. A good plan for
'having fine tomatoes right up to frost is
to plRnt the seed in early July and set the
plants; keep them well cultivated and
they will bear fine fruit until late in the
Rhubard or Pie Plant.
While we are preparing the other good
things, we should not be unmindful of the
pie-plant. This plant, however, Is better
adapted to our northern climates where it
grows and thrives and where its best «
qualities are fully developed. Still, by se- I
lectfng favorable spots, and preparing the |
soil, planting and cultivating, as recom- !
mended for asparagus, many of our ;
southern people may succeed in growing ■
enough fine pie-plant to meet their homo |
demand. One thing, however, that will j
add much in growing this plant in the j
south, is mulching during the hot sum
mers. As soon as the weather begins to
get hot, use heavy mulch of well rotted
wheat or oat straw, and see that the under
side of the mulch is kept damp all the
summer or during the hot dry weather.
There are many other vegetables suitable
for fall planting, but what is here named
will give a great variety.
The readee should remember that I am
preparing a book on truck farming and
general vegetable growing, which will be

A farmer has a circular field, fenced, of
an area of one acre. He desires to picket
a horse to the fence so that he will be
enabled to graze on one-tenth of an acjre.
What shall be the length of the rope?
When fhe farmers have finished I would
like to submit a real nautical problem
which is beyond my mathematical knowl
edge. This is It;
What is the equation of the curve form
ed by a given length of signal halliards
secured between two fixed points not In
the same vertical line; and acted upon by
gravity, and in-addition by a wind of a
given pressure per square inch, it being
assumed that the rope is perfectly flex
ible and non-extenstble. The rope is of a
green cross section and weight, the direc
tion of the wind being assumed to be
'horizontal, and in the vertical plane pass
ing through the two points to which the
rope is secured, and from the direction
of the lower point to which the rope is
I have often observed this at sea and
tried to solve it.
A 'cow is tied at one end of a rope
100 feet long. The other end of the rope
is attached to one corner of a barn 40
feet square. How great an area can the
cow graze over?
A tMg track is to be constructed so
Chat it will consist of two straight lines

point and also tduch the circle at a tan

circle is a third of a mile In length; the
arc of the circle from one point of con

A comes to town with 30 lemons, which
C buys at 2 for a cent, or 15 cents. B
follows with 30 lemons, which C buys at
8 for a cent, or 10 cents. That is to say,
C pays A and B 25 cents for 60 lemons.
The following day C says he will buy AO
lemons in one transaction at 5 for 2 cents
(3 fof 1 cent and 2 for 1 cent). The result
is that 60 lemons cost C only 24 cents the
second day. Who handed whom a lemon

Automobile Jumps Over 100-Foot Cliff
And Occupants Are Uninjured.
Lesueur (Minn.) Cor. St. Louis Republic.
There was a wonderful occurrence out
in Burgomaster township yesterday, near
the place w’here the Utopian society was
holding Its annual picnic.
They wrere in the valley of the Sweet
water river, clown stream from where the
iron bridge on the Huiisbrake turnpike
crosses the stream, and about 3 o'clock in
the afternoon the attention of many of
the picnickers was attracted by the shrill
screaming of some little girls who were
on the edge of t'he 100-foot rock bank of
the stream near the point where the turn
pike takes its turn down into the valley
to cross the bridge. They saw the little
girls scatter out of the way of something
that seemed to be coming toward tnem
from up the road, and a moment later
there was a crash in the board fence at
the turn of the road, and an instant later
a great crimson, shining automobile with
two persons seated in it shot over the
bank into the air, 100 feet above the heads
of the picnickers who were gazing up at
it from below.
A gentleman named Roderick J. Kloiber,
from away over in Hermantown, and a
young lady named Miss Marie Bernadott®
were taking an automobile trip from Her
mantown to Hunsbrake, and were wholly
unacquainted with the road, and conse
quently knew nothing of the eminently
dangerous turn in the road at the top of
the cliff. They were coming down the in
cline at great speed, taking it for granted
that the road was fairly level all the
way ahead of them, when suddenly, not
fifty feet in advance, Just a^? they passed
around a clump of evergreen trees near
the road, yawned the deep, narrow valley
of the Sweetwater.
The sudden sight of the valley was too
much for the nerves of Miss Barnadottc,
and she screamed and rose to her feet,
evidently with the intention of Jumping
out of the automobile.
Mr. Kloiber grasped her with both
hands, releasing control of the machine,
and, being compelled to struggle a mo
ment before he could get control of the
lady, the machine bounded on at full
speed, broke through the fence and leaped
out into space.
Far out the beautiful vehicle flew, curv
ing outward and downward and turning
as gracefully as a bird in the air in its
Mr. Kloiber held the lady with one arm
and clutched the steering wheel with the
other hand, and thus, riding as easily and
steadily, so far as his relation to the au
tomobile was concerned, as If they had
been on solid ground, the young couple
stayed with it during its downward flight,
turning completely over once during tho
fall, so that the horrified picnlcers, look
ing up at the flight from below, saw at
one moment Kloiber and Miss Bernadott®
curving through the air writh the great
auto inverted above them.
Turning, fortunately, just right as it
went down, the machine fell with a
mighty upheaval of thfe water, exactly
right side up. into the river, where it is
as much as twenty feet deep, and rushing
down to the bottom with ever decreasing
speed, carrying the passengers uninjured
with It, the automobile still right side up
and facing away from the cliff, struck tho
level, sandy bottom without much force,
and, being still in motion and so continu
ing, it ran slowly up the gentle Incline, out
of the water and onto the shore, ran over
a cow and killed her and then stopped
and the passengers alighted and took sup
per with the Utopian society folks by in
vitation, proving to be very pleasant and
agreeable young people, although both
were naturally % somewhat nervous and
excited over the accident and unpleasant
ly wet.

“ 'There are only fourteen of them,

here’s your chance.’
•“Chance to die?’ I queried.
•• ‘Die nothing! You go at it and run
those fellows off. I want a quiet smoke.’
“He filled and lighted his pipe and lay
down on the broad of his back and left
me to do all the fighting. I had hi*

my teeth were clicking together l banged
away and did the best I could. Not a
word of advice or encouragement did i
get from my comrade. When I had flusil

and led the way over to where they had
been thickest. There we found two dead

two more wounded had crawled away.
