soldiers who were killed "Inadvertently"
bv bullets durlug a sham battle not
very Ions ujro. "I'd ratber take a
chance with honest Injun bullets up
this way than with a lot of the blank
cartridges that I know and have heard
about down in the low latitudes ot
this liemisherc.
"Something; quite neat of the blank I
cartridge kind came off. for instance,
while Antonio Ezeta was fixing up and
putting over one revolution after another
down in Salvador, with his headquarters
in La Libertad. Antonio was
the most ingenious boy of the whole
Ezeta family, and that's saying a lot.
for the bunch of Ezeta s made it a business
and a i>astiine for years to cook
up revolutions all the way from Panama
to Patagonia.
"It was simply a plain business proposition,
revolutionizing. with those
lively Ezeta boys. As soon as an Ezeta
would succeed in bundling up a package
of loot amounting to five or ten
millions away he'd skip to Paris, and
he'd be dead of absinth and things inside
of a couple of years. Tony was
the only one of the boys, if I remember
correctly, who didn't do that, for the
reason that, ingenious as Antonio was
at upsetting governments, something
always happened to shut him /out of
the dougli at the critical Juncture.
"Well, anyway, while Antonio was
the boss of La Libertad, Salvador, his .
vedettes brought in a prisoner one day.
The prisoner was the secretary of war
or secretary of state or some little thing
like that of the still existent but under
cover regular government of the republic
of Sulvador.
"This chap had been in secret communication
with Antonio Ezeta and

He hail swiped some $200,000 in gold
for Ills bit, and. figuring that Antonio
was going to win out, he had made up
his iniud to attach himself to the Ezeta
cause and divide his portion of the
hoodie with Tony rather than remain
with the almost defunct government
and have the whole package removed
frwn him by the disbanding elements
of the losing side.
"fto they brought him in. with his
leather trunk stuffed with gold disks.
Antonio pretended to receive him with
a gloomy brow and In a loud tone ordered
that he be instantly shot.
'"Tony winked the other eye, however.
and the ex-offlcial of the defunct
cabinet felt pretty good. He begged
for a private word with Antonio, and
the two got together In Tony's oliice
and embraced affectionately.
" "You understand, of course, my
cherished brother, the situation here.'
said Antonjo. "The troops hate you. I
must stand you up to he shot at. But
I shall see that nothing but blank cartridges
are used. When the officer offers
to blindfold you, wave him aside
and proclaim your desire to die with
your eyes upon your assassins. This
will arouse the enthusiasm of my brave
boys, don't you see? They will probably.
in their enthusiasm, beg me to
spare your life. If so, well and good.
You are to he spared in any event, lint
if they do not beg for your life in their
enthusiasm they shall lire at you only

the captured ex-official, especially as
Antonio told him that his tmnkful of
money, with a little subtraction to be
contributed to the Ex eta cause, would

captured man was led out to. as he j
thought. his phony shooting: party. The
poor devil was exceedingly, effective in ,
his dramatically aririounced determination
to die with his eyes upon his

PIED-MONT, \\\ Va., June 20.?
The Fairmont base ball team was defeated
here to-day by the strong- Piedmont
team by a score of seven to
three. The great record made this
season by the Falrmonlers had preceded
their arrival here, and Piedmont
had its best team in the field prepared
for a hard struggle, and they got it,
l'or outside of the disastrous first inning
the contest was an even one,
both sides playing nice ball. The
Fairmont team played an errorless
game, while Piedmont's only misplay
ras one by the first baseman on a
hard chance.
Qualcy started In to pitch for Fairi.unii,
but he was out of form and
was hit hard. After pitching three innings
he gave way to I_efty Core, who
allowed only one run for the remainder
of the game. Patterson, for Pied- I
rnont. was wild, hut tie kept Fair
r.iont's eleven lilts won scattered.
For Fairmoat, .McDonald played a
tine fielding same, besides hitting
well, getting two Idts and two runs.
Vasbinder, in riglit, pulled down several
long drives. He also got tils
usual hit. getting a nice l wo-bagger.
The rest of the Fairmont boys played
a nice game, playing without an error.
The Piedmont boys played a swell
game, their bitting being especially
good. Daily led. having two threebaggers
and two singles.
Fairmont was tirst at bat. Way man
drew a base on balls but was forced
at second by Glbbs on an attempted
secrifice. The next two men up went
out in order. They scored one run in
the second, when McDonald singled '
and scored on Vasbinder's two bagger
to light. In the third Glbbs started
off with a three-bagger and scored {
011 a passed ball, but the next tlireti
were easy outs.
In the fifth, after Wayman and
Gibbs went out Helm was hit on the
arm by a pitched ball, but was left
on first when Stillwell struck out. In
the seventh, after Gibbs had gone out.
Iieim hit .safely, but was on second
when the third man went out.
Bryson hit for two bags in the
eighth, and went to third on Core's
single, 1)Ut Wayman grounded out,
making the third out.
Three men went out in order in the
