The police had been' in pursuit of tho band of twelve Indians for several days, believing that they were the murderers of four stockmen, whoso bodies were found about ten days ago in a desolate canyon on the eastern elopes of tho Slerrn Nevada Mountains. Tho victims' horses had been taken, *tnd ponies which had been ridden by the murderers were found shot nearby.

LEAGUE MANAGERS WILL CONTINUE ORGANIZATION Penin-tuln Magnaten Hold .Meeting In Hampton?Team Mny De Put In I'ltoebun. "~ [Spc'.1 to The Times-Dispatch.] Newport News, Va.. February 27.? The Peninsula Baseball League man? agers held a meeting in Hampton to? night, and decided to continue their organization during the coming sea? son, regardless of the formation or the Tidewater League. The Newport News athletics will continue in the league, and it is proposed to put in another team to replace the North enders, who have agreed to soil out. and quit ,n favor of the new league. No assumneeh that Fort Monroe will continue In the league were given, but it was decided to put in a Phoebus team if necessary. It was apparent that tho leading Hampton fans, who are backing the Hampton Peninsula League team, will fight the Tidewater organization to the limit, and It is entirely problematical what patronage a Tidewater team playing in Hamp? ton will he able to draw. The final refusal of Hampton to come tnto the new arrangements means that a team will be placed in Elizabeth City. N. C._ HOW RICHMOND'S NEPP POST-OFFICE WILL LOOK WHEN COMPLETED FUTURE BOOKING Syndicate Offers to Accept Bets on Outcome of Pennant Races. \ New York. February 27.?There were j received here to-day by express from Kentucky circulars of a betting syndi? cate which offers to accept bets on the outcome of the approaching pennan1 races In the National and American Baseball Leagues, and the American Association, and also on club against Club series. The circular caused some uneasiness Among local baseball men, who were quick to denounce the scheme, and It Is understood that immediate steps will be taken by the officials of the National and American Leagues to check, If possible, what they consider a menace to the national game. Gamb? ling has long been tabooed In profes? sional baseball, and the feeling seems general that If it is brought into the game it will be to the detriment of a sport that Ik now clean and healthy. Some persons attribute tho new scheme to bookmakers, whose revenue has been cut off by the passage of antl race-track betting laws. The syndi? cate announces In its circular that It It willing to accept hets of $5 or over, which shall be sent by express, tele? graph or telephone. According to the "book" it has planned, S to 5 Is offered that New York will not finish first In the National League race. That the Giants will not finish second 3 to f> is offered, and for third place 1 to -f i> quoted. In tho American Leagvie, Philadelphia is the favorite at 6 to f> to win, 1 to :> for second place and 1 to 5 for third. In addition to bets, on the pennant races, the offer 1b made to lay odds on the standing of the clubs In mid season In fact, every sport ol imagin? able combination for wagering Is of? fered baseball enthusiasts.

KILLS CHILDREN AND SELF Mother Given Them Lye to Drink, Then Swallows Fatal Done. Rochester, X. Y., February 27.?Af? ter dressing her two small children in their best clothes this afternoon. Mrs. Charles Lutz, thirty-eight years of age. gave each a solution of a patent lye to drink, and drank some herself. Her Jnisband. returning from work, found the children dead and tho mother dying. It is believed the woman was mentally deranged. "A man is as old as his arteries/' Old age is merely a hardening of the arteries?and hardening of the arteries comes from excessive eating of high-protein food such as meat and eggs. Gut down the high protein diet for awhile and eat Shredded Wheat. It supplies all the body-building material in the whole wheat prepared in a digestible form. Of course will not "cure" appendicitis?nor will any other cereal food. The excessive eating of indigestible foods, however, gradually brings on stomach and bowel disorders?and these can be prevented by a daily diet of thoroughly cooked cereals. Shredded Wheat is best for this purpose because it is steam-cooked, shredded and twice . baked, retaining the bran coat, which is so valuable in keeping the bowels healthy and active, f Heat the Biscuit in the oven to restore erispness and serve with'hot or cold milk and a little cream, adding salt or sugar to suit the taste. It also makes delicious combinations with stewed or preserved fruits. Two Shredded Wheat biscuits with stewed fruit makes a wholesome nourishing meal.

CONTEST OF PARSONS IS AGAIN LIVE ISSUE Attempt Being Made to Have House Give Him Seat Now Held by Judge S?unders. Washington. D. C, February 21,? The Parsons-Saunders contested elec? tion case from tiio Fiftii Virginia Dis? trict, which was believed to have been put out of the way for all time several weeks ago, when the report of the Committee on Flections, declaring the seat In Congress now held by Judge Saunders to belong to Stote Senatoi John M. Parsons, was sent back to the committee, suddenly came to life to? day. The committee held a meeting for the purpose of getting tho report he fore the House during the present week in order, if possible, to have Mr. Parsons declared by the House to be entitled to the place, and to award him the salary for two years and expenses, which amount to about ?18,000. Two months ago. on motion of Chair? man Miller, of tho Elections Committee, the report, which previously had been made, was referred back to the com? mittee. This was taken by tho friends of Judge Saunders to mean that for all time the matter was dead. It turns out now, however, that it was for tho purpose of permitting certain changes to be made in the report which prob? ably would be in the interest of Mr Parsons. One of the Republican mem? bers, who is anxious to have tho lat? ter seated now, is Congressman Ben? nett, of New York. He has beon a strong supporter of Parsons since tho case got before the committee, last .sear, and lias not lost an opportunity to testify to the sentiment of tho House, on the question of whether or not it would vote to oust Judge Saunders and seat Parsons. It appears now that he lias reached the conclusion that if a vote is had at this time Parsons may win, therein- entitling him to the $1S, 000. If the committee decides at to-mor? row's meeting to report the bill again It will be nt least Wednesday or Thursday before It can come before tho House, and a little filibustering now probably would keep it down alto? gether. On the other band, If the ro port Is brought In and the Democrats are caught napping Parsons may be declared entitled to the seat, every day now being suspension day under tho rules of the House. with anything privileged to be voted on which may meet the approval of Speaker Cannon. AMUSEMENTS Academy of Manic?Dark, Bijou?".My Cinderella Gin?'? mntince and nlpbt. 1.11 hin?? Vaudeville. Farce With .Music. Of the big audience that filled the Bijou last night, a great majority seemed to enjoy tho performance, so that the personal opinion of one man should not bo considered by those who contemplate going later In the week. "My Cinderella Girl" is a farce some? what after the order of those of the lamented Hoyt, and In the hands of a competent company would doubtless bo exceedingly amusing. John S. Marble, the stage manager, who also played an old man part, showed real ability. Alice Clark sang well and pleasingly, handicapped as she was by the ruffian? ly laughter of some young men who chose that method of showing their musical cultivation ajtd their superior contempt for a young woman who was doing her honest best to entertain the audience. The rest of the company also ran. However, the house roared with laugh? ter, and showed, by Its generous ap? plause, that the performance was more than satisfactory to the regular patrons of tho popular priced play? house. W. D. Q.

The disappointment to mil? itary officer Is that the Virginia Coast Artillery, with everything which a gov? ernment particularly partial to them could give, should havo turned out to be such a disgrace to the State as to call for Its summary and dishonorable d'smlssal, Order of Executive. The Governor's order, embracing tho recommendations of the court of in? quiry, is as follows: "The court Is of the following opinion: "Discipline in uny sense of tho word does not exist in the Coast Artillery Corps of Virginia Volunteers. Tho most glaring breaches of discipline have been passed over without notice being taken of them, save In some cases a personal reprimand was given. Case after case has occurred wherein enlisted men were allowed to treat offi? cers disrespectfully and nobody was punished therefor. Tho ofilcers do not seem to reaiize their responsibility be? yond their own respective commands, and only In a few cases do thoy seem to feel any responsibility at all. "The attendance of this corps upon their duties at Fort Monroe in August, 1910, was in the nature of an outing j or picnic, in so far as a great number of tho enlisted men wore concerned, md In so far as any effective stops wore taken by the ofilcors to persuade the men that they were there ns a mili? tary organization for military service The efficiency and discipline of tho companies of this corps rank In the following order: The Fourth Company the Third Company, the F'rst Company &nd the Second Company. The ofilcors of tho entire corps uro disorganized and demoralized. As a corps the dis? cipline and efficiency thereof cannot be characterized, for there is none. Tho officers and men in great part seem t . be Ignorant of the fundamental duties and responsibilities of a soldier, and little or no effort lias been made to remedy this fundamental defect. It has boon the habit and altitude of the , ntire corps to let things take their course, in the hopo that the very worst of conditions would he remedied by the election of a major. Discipline cannot he acquired or maintained by entire absence of any effort to pro? mote that end. It is hardly necessary to add thnt this court entirely concurs In the report of Colonel Townsley and Ills officers upon the discipline and efficlenoy of the Coast Artillery Corps, Virginia Volunteers. "Tho court, begs to recommend that tho Coast Artillery Corps of Virginia Volunteers be mustered out of the service of tho Commonwealth of Vir? ginia, and that one company be or? ganized In Norfolk and one company in "Right Medicine for Grip." So writes Mr. Hay Lymnngrover. He was cured two years ago and ever since he has been one of Duffy's most nrdcnt endorsers. "After an- attack of grip two years ago I was left in a very weak and run? down condition. On advice of a friend I tried Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey and found it just the right thing. I noticed a steady gain in strength from the start. Have user! considerable of your valuable medicine and find it to be the very best. I assure you I will advise my friends when needing a good tonic and cure for grip to take Duffy's."?Ray Lymangi-over, 547 Oakwood Avc., Toledo, Ohio. Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is a wonderful remedy in the prevention and cure of consumption, pneumonia, grip, bronchitis, coughs, colds, asthma, malaria, low fevers, stomach troubles and all wasting, weakening and diseased con? ditions, if taken as directed. You should have it in your home. It will do you good. It. has been before the public for half a century, and its curative value has never been questioned. Its success in curing disease has caused many unreliable deal? ers to put up substitutes and imitations with which to fool the people, claiming that their substitutes "arc just as good as" Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, but they are thinking of their profits only.
