T would like to see that fellow," said Mr. Kelley as the man made his way across the street to the Morris-Bon-Reeves library. "Well come ahead," replied the stranger as he took up his stand inimght as they can then work durin front of the library easily handling a large revolver.

The young men's meeting at the First English Lutheran church Tues day night was a success in every way, and a heart-to-heart talk among the workers followed the bounteous ban quet prepared by the young ladies of Oliver Nusbaum's Sunday school class and served in the dining hall of the church. Every man present pledged each minute of his j;pare time until the campaign is closed, and the work will be carried on with greater vim than has . before- characterized the campaign. The spirit of self-sacrifice was also evident as one prominent young business man pledged himself to the work one day each week, taking the time away from his-business, to do the canvassing.

KEYTOII KILLED BY A CAR Fatal Accident Occurred on Tuesday Between Dublin And Straughn Station. THE VICTIM QUITE DEAF.

Mrs. Keyton was quite deaf and Tuesday morning she was walk ing down the tracks to a rural mall Ijox. Tho work car approached from behind her at a rapid rate and every effort on the part of the motorman to stop his car and warn the woman of its approach was unavailing.

When the car struck the unfortunate woman she was hurled into the air, and when picked up from the road by members of the car crew she was breathing her last. Came From Illinois.

She was not noticed walking on the track by the motorman in charge of the car until too late for him to stop the car. He resorted to constant use of his whistle and gong to att her attention. . .

M. C. A., the annual banquet of the club held Tuesday night in the dining hall in the Masonic temple, was a success in every particular. Tha spirit of enthusiasm manifested by those giving toasts, was marked, while mond's future welfare and the duty of the Commercial club In all, were neg- lected. The most vital questions con fronting Richmond today were brought before the gathering and although In many instances no direct allusion was made as to tho duties of the members of tho club, they accepted such re marks and the general feeling of "We must do something" seemed to pre vail in the minds of all. The toasts were excellent, the banquet board la den with good things, an assembly-of more than one hundred and twenty five present, all tending to make the evening a most enjoyable one.

He indirectly referred to the Y. M. C. A. in such a manner. Reeves on Street Cars.
