WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1915 Got It Right There Secretary of Navy Sir Josephus Daniels in a recent speech said that the naval battles of the future will be in the air. As Josephus has had the entire American navy up in the air ever since he has been on the job he thinks he has it ready for immediate action. Evidently Some Mistake Lindsley M. Garrison, secretary of war, smiled the other evening when the conversation turned to the sub ject of dreams. He said he was re minded of an incident that happened in New England. Some time ago a party named Brown had a dream, and the thing so im pressed him that he gave a detailed account of it to several of his friends. “By the way, Jim,” he remarked to an acquaintance one afternoon, “did 1 tell you about the dream I had the other night?” “No, I don’t think you did,” re sponded the other. “What was it about ?” “I dreamed that I was in heaven,” answered Brown, with a reflective ex pression. “On one side there was u piano playing. On the other there was a cornet. Not far away there was a phonograph, while just beyond there was a vio—" “You must have been mistaken, old m an,” impressively broke in the other. That wasn’t heaven.”—Philadelphia Telegraph. ALL FOR TWO BITS Arkansas Valley League the Major League of the Country Valley League Standing P W L PC. Rocky Ford 7 6 2 714 La Junta 6 6 3 626 Fort Lyon 7 3 4 429 Lamar 8 2 6 260 Suuday demonstrated beyond dit> pule that the Arkansas Valley Leagu.- is the big league of the country, a> others being only imitators. Only two games were played and yet 60 runs were scored, whereas, the Federal League played three double headers and only succeeded in scoring 41. Each citizen who paid two bits for admission to either of the games got a run for each penny he paid. Thej say all an American citizen asks is to get a run for his money, and our val ley fans got a run for each penny. Can you beat it? The score at Lamar was Rocky Ford 15, Lamar 10, and at La Junta it was Fort Lyon 13, La Junta 12. The record day for the two major leagues with all sixteen teams working is 126 runs, while the four valley teams made 60. They are not in our class at all. The game here was filled with ex citing moments but the team had themselves entirely to blame for the disastrous result. They batted the Rocky Ford pitchers all over the lot. and were so tickled with seeing the ball roll that when they got in tl. • held they booted it about every tin • it came near them. Pitcher Hill, wl. » has twice delivered the goods for tl Lamar fans, found that the third til • • is the charm and the things Rod./ Ford did to him appeased Manag. r knause for what happened at Las An imas last September. He stayed j i until he demonstrated that he could hit a Rocky Ford bat every time he pitched the ball, and then with the game standing 12 to 3 the Littler bat tery took up the task for six innings. In that time Lamar made 7 runs and the Fordites only scratched out three against the Littlers, but they already bad enough to win. There was a good crowd out and they did a lot of loyal rooting, and helped the home team along with two good rallies but they could not over come tha nine run handicap that was established in the third inning. Jack son, the crack Rocky Ford pitcher was treated almost *3 badly as was Hill, and had to be pulled to stop a big rally in which Lamar was rapidly closing up the big gap. The Rocky < j Ford team fielded much better than t the Lamar boys, and they needed to as I I the Lamar batters hit Jackson's much 1 'talked of fast one every time it came i over the plate, and would have doubled ( their score if it had not been for the i splendid support he received in the field. Manager Byrnes, who has taken 1 time which he could hardly spare from i his own business to try to get the i nine in shape, has given up the job i and it is not yet decided who will un dertake the task of filling up the i weak places in the line-up, and get ! the team in shape for the game at i Rocky Ford next Sunday. The box score of the two games fol- I lows, as well as the league batting av- I e rages. LAMAR AB K H PO A E | 1 l'ate, ms 4 2 1 2 11 , Kenlin. If < J ; ? “ ' Hines, 3b 6 3 3 1 3 1 B.

ARE YOUTHFUL AT FORTY-FIVE Womtn of That Age in This Genera tion Do Not Look Over Thirty If They Use "Precautlone." The American woman of forty-five a Ccnc-ratlon ago saw her forty-five years unmistakably reflected in her mirror In worry lines, flabby throat, graying weir, and sagging fbcial muscles. The woman of that day turned away sadly enough, no doubt, but her predominat ing feeling was a sad resignation to '.be inevitable law which decreed that It was not only natural but right for a Human of her advanced years to ap pear old. The woman of forty-five to lay. yes. and even the woman of fifty, would laugh L oue advanced so absurd ru opinion. The life of today la more wearing, more active, than was that of % generation ago. but her mirror re flects a smooth white brow, from which the worry lines have been ban ished by the "forehead strap” and the ‘wrinkle plaster," and a firm rounded throat and chin, the contour of which Is preserved by the application of as tringents and the artful "chin-strap.” Her hair la abundaui and well cared for, and her soft skin Is tinted with a vegetable rouge that cannot be de tected. Perfectly corseted and llthely youth ful, she finds no difficulty In convlno lug the most arrant skeptic that she le under thirty.—Vogue.
