the Winchester pike, near Paris.
Mr. Pollitt and Miss Mabel Law
rence were driving in the Pollitt
machine, and as they approached a
point on the road ne,ar the Frank
Clay farm, they saw a machine in
front of them, apparently in trouble
with no tail lights. Another ma
chine coming in the opposite direc
ton, blinded Mr. Pollitt, who lost
control of his auto, plunging into
the machine ahead of him, which
was occupied by Sanders Roe, of
Stony Point, en route to Paris.
Both machines were damaged, Pol
litt's car being ditched. Pollitt's
right leg was broken, his upper jaw
bone broken in two places, and his
right eye knocked out. His compan
ion escaped with a few slight
bruises. Mr. pollitt was taken to
the Massie Memorial Hospital.
In a collision which occurred
yesterday morning at the entrance
of the covered bridge on the George
town pike, between an automobile
driven by Walter Kenney, Jr., and a
truck belonging to the Raymond
Construction Co., of Cynthiana, the
Kenney machine was demolished.
Mr. Kenney escaped without serious
injury. The driver of the truck sus
tained a severe gash on the right
side of the head, and other serious
injuries. The truck was coming to
ward Paris and in endeavoring to
pass both machines were struck, the
Kenney machine being pushed un
derneath the big truck. The truck
driver was brought to Paris, where
his injuries were given attention.

Maysville and the
came together in a
game at League Park Thursday, in
which the game was anybody's for
quite a time. Paris came from be
hind in the eighth inning, and made
a last inning finish, the score, 8 to
7, being finally chalked up for the
victors. Rumage started on the
twirling mound for the Mammoths,
but gave way to Cotter in the
third inning, after five runs had
been made off his delivery. One of
the features of the game was the
hitting by Wunker, of the Mam
moths, who drove out four hits.
Cicona lined out a three-bagger.
Maysville scored three runs in .the
third, one each in the seventh
and eighth, Paris putting across
one in the second and third, two in
the fourth, and two each in the
sixth and eighth. The summary:
Two-base hits Wunker, Kresser,
Hurst. Three-base hits Cicona.
Stolen bases Glass, Bosken. -Sacrifice
hits Nippert, 2; Fortner.
Double plays Fortner to Kresser to

Remember that sentence in the
Lexington Herald, relative to the
meeting of Lexington and Paris,
Friday: "While the Studes are
beating Paris, Saturday,, etc, And
remember how the" game came to be
a runaway for Paris?
The Mammoths trimmed the
Studebakers Saturday afternoon at
League Park by the one-sided score
ofv12 to 2, and but for an error in
the field it would have been a shut
out for Lexington. Shaw started
the game on the mound for Lexing
ton, but gave way in the fifth in
ning to Walton, who fared but lit
tle better. Both the Lexington
twirlers were wild, and when they
did put them over the plate the
Paris sluggers pounded them to all
parts of the lot. Wills, who started
,the game for Paris on the twirling
mound, was hit by a batted ball in
the fifth inning, and was forced- to
retire, being succeeded by Rum
mage, who held the Lexington team
at his mercy the rest of the game.
Lexington staged a rally in the fifth
inning, which enabled them to score
two runs, due to haTd hit by Ellis,
on which he scored, being followed
afterward by Resitenberg. The
hitting of Maples, Nippert, Wunker
and Brockman, for Paris, and Ellis,
kfor Lexington, featured the game.
A one-handed catch by Amato fea
tured forLexington in the fielding.
Paris scored five runs in the fifth
inning and followed it up in the
sixth by scoring five more.
The fortunes that follow along the
lines of baseball favored the Lex
ington team in, the breaks that hap
pened in Sunday's game, when the
Studes came back strong after their
ignominious defeat in Paris Saturday
and won the game by a score of 6
to 5. Speak of bad luck, isn't it
awful to make four home " runs in
one game and then lost out That's
what happened to the Mammoths at
Lexington Sunday. It is hard from
this point to put the blame for the
defeat, but just charge it to circum
stances. The Paris sluggers batted
Farms, Lexington pitcher hard, but
not often enough, while Lexington
hit safely in driving in runs. Four
of: the seven Paris hits were home
runs. Nippert making two, and the
others by Winger and Maples. The
other Paris run came in the seventh
on errors by Resitenberg and Ama
to, allowing Brockman to score.
Winger's homer in the first inning,
Nippert's in the second and seventh
and Maple's in the fourth. Lexing

by the Paris team, and got hits

people of Paris their organization

the large crowd that went to East
Paris could reveal any knowledge of

The blazing cross, thirty feet in

tion on a bluff on the Marsh farm,
and could- be seen for a long dis
tance. The cross presented a bril

viewed "from Main street, and was

FOOT BALL SEASON OPENS
- The first game of the 19 2" 2 'foot
ball season in Paris was played Fri
day afternoon on Hancock Field be
tween the Paris High School and
Carlisle High School teams. In the
first quarter Paris received the ball
and scored the first touchdown in
eight minutes. The ball was ad
vanced by hard line plunges and
was finally carried over the line by
Lfnllback Taylor. Soon after tne
six ,, .
start of the second quarter Deacon,
the fast little halfback, made a
pretty broken field run of twenty
yards for the second and last touch
down of the game.
Both attempts at the goal failed,
leaving the score Paris 12, Carlisle
0. The half ended with the ball in
midfield. The second half started
with Carlisle receiving the punt and
it seemed as if they would rush the
Paris boys off their feet, but they
were stopped withing .striking dis
tance of the goal. Paris punted the i
ball back up the field and kept it
there the remainder of the game,
mtte'game was witnessed by a large
crowd of enthusiastic fans. Officials
of the game were: Nash, George
town, referee, Arnsparger, Center,
umpire; Thomas, Kentucky, head
Prospects are that Paris is start
ing on its greatest football year.
The new athletic field given over to
the school by A. B. Hancock has the
appearance of a real college turf.
Three hundred and sixty students
have already joined the High School
Athletic Association for the year
and others are coming in. Nine let
ter men of last year are back on the
squad with twenty-five new ones out
for practice daily. Jimmie' Deacons,
of Eminence, a new man on the
squad this year, is one of the best
recruits Paris has had for years. In
Clay Ward the P. H. S. has one of
the best high school coaches in the
State. For three years he was
tackle or end on the University of
Virginia team, and in 1917 he was
captain of the team.

FAMOUS WOMAN BALLOONIST
Miss Stella Jeager, who claims to
chute to another, three in all. She
landed safely in the rear of the
Fuhrman barn, a short distance
from the starting point. She was
vigorously cheered and applauded
for her daring act. Sunday after
noon, due to threatening weather
and cross currents, the ascent was
late, but the daring sky-skimmer
made the trip safely. The balloon
rose gracefully and was carried
across the city at a height of about
eight hundred feet to a point over
the Hancock farm, on the Winches
ter pike, where the parachute jump
was again made safely.
Miss Jeager has had a number of
unusual experiences. One night
she landed in three feet of water;
once she landed on top of a five
story business house, and once, af
ter night she landed on a pile of
rocks, receiving bruises and straine'd
ligaments, but not enough to pre
vent her from undertaking her reg
ular program the following day.
Miss Jeager is a native of Middle
town, Ohio. She has appeared in
towns all over the United States,
and is everywhere recognized as one
of the most daring workers in her
