Third Lecture Course Speaker Deals
With Charles Dickens.
Montaville Flowers entertained a
large audience at the Gennett last
night in the third of the series of
entertainments furnished by the Pop
ular Lecture Course. Mr. Flower is
President of the Flower Academy of
Speech and Dramatic Art of Cincin
nati and as a reader and reciter his
equal has probably not been seen
in Richmond for some time.
Although he has a repertoire of
about fifty different masterpieces he
took for his subjeet last night
Charles Dickens' masterpiece, "A
Christmas Carol." He portrayed the
different;characters in a manner that
showed careful study and under
standing. His style was dramatic
and he had the power of leading his
audience from the heartiest laughter
to the verge of tears without appar

Insurance Agents Are Becoming
More Numerous in Indiana.
In spite of the "revelations with re
spect to the large insurance com
panies of the country, the report of
Cyni s W.'Xeal. chief clerk of the in
surance department . of . the Auditor
of State's office, shows that the num
ber of insurance agents is increasing
in Indiana. During the year just
closed agents'. licenses were issued to
, 1"),244 persons, about 2,000 in excess
of the number issued the year before.
The taxes and fees of the com
panies amounted to $370,340.01 last
year, an amount about $24,000 in ex
cess of the taxes and fees the year
preceding. Of these total receipts,
$303.78().10 constituted the taxes and
,flfi,"vi3.S5 the fees paid in.
This report is interesting now from
the fact that, included in the finan
cial statement for the last year, are
items that will not be included in the
rjayments made to the Auditor of
State again. Hereafter, in accord
ance with the law, the tax money
will be paid directly to the State
Treasurer, so that the amount receiv
ed at the Auditor's office in the
course of a year will be cmpara
This plan has been followed during
the last quarter of the year, settle
ment for which was made yesterday.
The amount of the Auditor's set
tlement was only $4,077.00, probably
one of the smallest settlements in
YALE LOSES TO
SCARLET OF WEST TRIUMPHS
OVER BLUE OF EAST IN
BASKET BALL GAME.
THE FINAL SCORE 25 TO 8
The Game Was Very Rough and Re
sembled Much a Football
Special to Palladium:
Crawfordsville, Ind., January 3.
Six hundreds admirers of Wabash
crowded the Y. M. C. A. auditorium
tonight to see the Scarlet defeat the
basket ball team of Yale university
by the score of 24 to 8. Although
thegame was rough from the start
it was one of the finest ever seen on
the local floor. Many fouls coming
at critical moments gave Wabash its
advantage for Diddle threw almost
perfect from-the foul line.
During the first half Yale was
completely played off their feet and
seemed a sure looser. All team work
resorted to football tactics. The first
half ended 14 to 0 in favor of Wa
bash. Yale, however, took a decided
brace in the second half playing , a
brilliant game. Their team work. .was
fast and snappy but the Wabash
guards were equal to the task and
were always in front of the ball at
critical times. When the visitors had
a chance at foul goals they could not
locate the basket until the second
half when they seemed to make a
desperate effort to win out.
During the entire game the ball
was kept in Yale's territory with the
Wabash guards fighting like demons
to retain the lead they had secured
in the first half. The playing of Did
dle and Freeman at forward, and
Wicks and Williams at guards for
Wabash was the distinctive feature.
Sprow at center played his usual
Yale fought every inch of ground
during the game and had they not
been overconfident at the start
might have made a better showing.
Score: Wabash 24, Yale 8. Goals'
from field, Wabash: Sprow 3, Did
