CntOER'S GREAT GAME f AHLHAM STAR WAS VIRY MUCH IN THI OAMK AT ALL TIMES THOMAS PLAYED A PINE GAME FOR BUTLER. EARLHAM 17, BUTLER . Butler's football championship aspir ations died this afternoon when Earl- ham gave them the small end of a ' seor of 17 to 6. ' No team was more confident of vic tory than the Butler boys were when they arrtred In. the Quaker City. They had been circulating big bear stories and expected them to have effect on the local team. Bat contrary to their expectations Earlham was too strong and outclassed the visitors . at all stages of the game. Jt kick off by Earlham started the game. After working back and forth for time the ball was carried Into Earlham territory and Thomas, the Butler giant carried the ball across the Earlham line for a touchdown. Thomas kicked goal., After the first quarter Butler be came considerably weakened. Early In the second quarter Brunner made a , touchdown but failed to kick goal." Just before the end of the second quarter after the Earlham line had showed some splendid offensive work Brunner again carried the ball over the Butler line. This time he kicked goal. First halt ended 11 to 6 la Earl- ham's favor. The third quarter was marked by several long runs. Jones and Stanley each carried the ball seventy yards for touchdowns but the were not count- J. ' Near the close of the game Wilson made a , touchdown and Brunner kicked goal. Earlham has made much Improve ment since last Saturday's game. Their back field Is much stronger than It was and their line plays a great game. . Summary of the games Carlhem Butler Wilson. ' C Jones Thomas Left end. Nelson i. Batton MR tackle.

(Palladium Special) San Antonio, Texas, Nov. 12. In the absence of federal or state aid for good roads southwest Texas Is setting about the solution of the good roads question la a manner that may be of Interest to scores of other states where the organization for directing the construction of good rads is poor. In this state, aa In' a great many oth ers, there is no provision for the eon. traction of good roads by the state. This matter is entirely in the hands of the county officials. In a territory as sparsely settled as southwest Texas till Is, in spite of Its enormous Immi gration, good roads are particularly necessary because the distances to be traveled are long. Imperative neces sity baa forced the counties to organ ize among themselves counties which vote for good roads bonds and special taxes quite readily. Others refuse to do so. Now the proposition of each county Is usually to get a good high way across several counties la addi tion to providing its own little net work of good roads. Therefore, hav ing voted bonds the county officials of the fortunate county takes up negotia tions with the neighboring county through which a good road is desired on very much the same basis that one nation would negotiate a treaty with another. The obvious advantage of the good road in question, is usually sufficient argument to induce the back ward county to fall Into line. But the county having a good roads fund at Its disposal has force as well as diplomacy at Its command. Such a county, presuming that it has an ob stinate neighbor to the north, - can construct all county highways up to within two, three, four or five miles of the county line and then leave an Intervening area of very bad roads. This very seldom falls to force the neighboring county to action. Using these methods it Is possible to drive a highway straight as the crow files across several hundred miles of country where the, per capita cost of good roads is comparatively high owing to the fact that southwest Texas is far from being thickly popu lated. Such a proposition Is now ba ng handled between San Antonio and Corpus ChrlstL The Bureau of Good Roads at Washington was requested to send an expert to furnish the coun ty officials Information' about routes i FOOT BALL RESULTS.

BABY TURTLES. They Know Just What te Do and Do It Without Guidance. Just so soon as a baby turtle emerges from the egg off he scuttles down to the sea.- ' He has no one to teach turn. no one to guide him. In his curious little brain there Is Implanted a streak of caution based upon the" fact that until a certain period In -his life his armor Is soft and no defense against hungry' fish. and. he at oace seeks the shelter in the tropical profusion of the Calf weed, which " holds within its trenching fronds an astonishing abun dance of marine life Here the young tsrtle feeds unmolested while his ar mor undergoes the hardening procei .

Ctrptrs wetxiy. Texas Attempting to Solve Gobd Roads Question Alone sad road material. Fay McGIure was sent and baa recently submitted his preliminary report. Commercial clubs along the way and the Saa Antonio chamber of commerce are now lending their moral support to the proposition and there Is little doubt that the next few months will see under way a road going straight from 8an Antonio to Corpus Chrlstl through what was only a few years ago the vast stronghold of the cattle baron. Undoubtedly no other means now at the command of those who realize the Importance of good county roads could accomplish these results. A campaign to get fed eral aid for good roads has been waged in a desultory, manner, and thus far fruitlessly, for many years. State, aid for roads In a sparse settled state al ways presents the difficulty that the money can be spent several hundreds of miles away from at least three- fourths of the population. It Is Interesting to observe what a dynamo of activity one county with , a good roads fund at its command be comes. Some years ago Bexar county, of which San Antonio Is the principal part, voted a bond Issue of 8500,000, With this a network of good roads was built that made the automobile loops of this scenic bit of territory nation ally famous. Since then county roads have radiated in every direction from this city until now It Is possible to make at least 20 trips to as many dif ferent towns within one hundred miles of San Antonio over roads which are in excellent condition all the year, The suggestion for all of these roads came from the example set by this one county. In tact so successful have been the efforts of the good roads builders of Texas that a proposition is now being urged for the construction of a high way that shall run due north and south from the Red River, the north ern . boundary of Texas, to the Rio Grande, the southern boundary. Such a road will bevabout 600 miles long. It will travel from blizzard swept rzr lrle to a territory In which snow has never been seen. It will be long enough to cross at least two of any other states in the Union That such s proposition should be seriously con sidered by a mere collection of coun ties Is some Indication of thevresults which Texas Is obtaining in ita efforts for good roads. being the only man who ever repulsed Stonewall Jackson. At the close of his military career General Shields took up his home In Missouri. In 1872 he was chosen to fill out the unexpired term of United States 8enator L. V. Bogy. He took his seat In the senate for the third and last time in what proved to be the t year of his life. While engaged on a lecture trip he was taken HI and died at Ottumwa. Iowa, June 1, 1879. His remainee were brought back too Carroll ton and buried In the cemetery not far from the old Shield's home stead here. The memorial unveiled today was erected with an appropriation made by the federal government. The monu ment was designed by Jerome Connor of Washington. It is of white marble nine feet high and surmounted - by a bronze bust of the old warrior and statesman. A copy of the bust has been presented by the sculptor to this county and has been placed - In the courthouse. On the four sides of the base of the monument appears i the coats of arms of Illinois. Minnesota, Oregon and Missouri, the four states which shared his services as a public servant. News Forecast For Coming Week Washington, D. C Nor. 12.

Four States Join in Memorial to Gen. Shields, Noted Soldier (Palladium Special) CarroUton, Mo.. Nov. 12. Four states joined in paying tribute here to day to the memory of Gen.

An effort is to be made to establish a ma chine that will be militant and com bine the radical as wel as the conser vative in the Republican ranks. A campaign of education la to be started through a publicity bureau, and this winter may see the Republican ma chine made ready for the presidential contest of 1912. Postmaster F General Hitchcock. who is at the head of the present na tional committee is to completely sev er his connection with the machine it is said and devote all of his time to his position. A man is to be selected as the chairman who will be agreeable to both radicals and conservatives. It will be a hard job to select a man prominent enough in 'the public eye to command respect and - attention who will be acceptable to the LaFol- lette and Cummins brand of Republi canism as well as measuring up to the standard set by Vice , President Sherman.

Denied admittance , by the -secretary he approached the doorman and in a loud voice asked permission to speak to the admiral for a minute. So in sistent was the old salt that the ad miral heard the conversation through the partially closed door. ."Tell him to go to H-." shouted the admiral to the attendant. Tossing aside the guard with one hand, the old sailor stuck his head in the door 'and answered: "I know I'll meet you there, but I want to see you now." "Come in," said the admiral.
