GARY HOTEL EIGH NO TOWN AND CITY THE TIMES. FROM N CROWN POINT NEWS Death of Mrs. Matz. Mrs. Fredericks Matz, wife of Char ley Matz, died at their home on the east Bide of town last evening, from aggravated intestinal trouble, from which she had been sick only about a week.

The funeral will take place on Monday afternoon in charge of Merrill & Linton, and the inter ment will be at the Crown Point cemetery. Still Very HI. Mrs. Henry Griesel is still in a quite serious condition as a result of blood poisoning in the foot and limb. The injury resulted from the dressing of a corn some time ago, blood poisoning set ting in immediately after the opera tion. She is still confined to her bed and her many friends are becoming alarmed over her condition. Holds Weekly Shoot. The Crown Point Gun club held their weekly shoot at their grounds west of town yesterday and some good scoring was done, the day being ideal for slaughtering the clay birds. John Foss made the highest score of the day's ; ehoot, with 23 birds out of a pos sible 25 break. The following is the list of the other highest scorers: 'Touche, 22; Haberzetyl, 21; Swartz, 20; Gus Wirtz, 15; A. H. Farley, 13; John 'Wheeler, 10; Thomas, 10; Johnson, 9. i-The local club has practically yielded the laurels to the Carsten Gun club, having been defeated by them twice, and while some of the individual shoot ers on each team average about the same in the h.gher scoring, the team work of the Carsten club in general is must superior to that of Crown Point's and the members realize they would have the hardest kind of a time win ning against these odds, consequently no further matches will be arranged between the two clubs unless the Cars ten club is willing to shot a ten-man team. for Northern Indiana will take place ! here Sunday between the Standards of Valparaiso and the Oaklands of Lowell.

Jake Steeb is getting to be an ex Tprt in distinEuishing one automobile from another by the sounds made by their engines, hardly ever making a mistake on the kind of cars that hap pen to be coming up the street. The other evening, standing with a crowd oil men, Jake made the assertion that an automobile coming up Main street, nearly half a mile away, was a "Jack son" touring car. His companions at the time thought he was joking, but changed their minds as the machine passed by, when sure enough it proved to be a Jackson.

There is some talk of organizing a town foot baW team for the coming season, which, it is to be hoped, will turn out to be more than talk.
