Telephone No. 1 Wins itf Recent Local Contests, Leading in Features. Ia one of the most fiercely contested games of the local gridiron season Ken tucky Military Institute vanquished High School yesterday by the margin of one point, the final score being 21 to 20. Straight football was the chief depend ence of both elevens, and when the final whistle sounded both lines had been bat tered by the spirited charges. High School opened the contest with a brilliant line attack that swept the Cadets down the field in almost a rout. Within three minutes the Purple had planted the ball behind their opponents' goal for the first touchdown. The Cadets seemed to find themselves in the second quarter, and the Turpi was soon placed on the defensive. White sell, tne big K. M- I. tackle, it was who put his team in its stride. He tore through the entire Purple eleven for a run of sixty-five yards and a touchdown Maj. McGowan's proteges renewed the slashing play immediately following th kickoff in the second half and held the opposing offense in fine style and Higl: School was forced to kick. " Vicious line plunges by Wbitesell, Fargo and feck tore the Purple line savagely and the ball was carried down the field for another touchdown. TRIO UNDER WAY. The Cadets' triple-headed" battering ram was again brought into play, Whi'te sell, Fargo and Peck sweeping over their rivals for their third and last tally High School then displayed its char acteristic rallying spirit and soon forced the Cadets to assume the defensive, from ninety-six counties of the State. Exclusive of the vote in Union Coun ty, Welch, Democratic candidate for railroad commissioner, received a ma jority over his opponent, Sadler, of 18, 227, the former's vote being 123,503, and the latter's 110,336. The election commissioners of Union County failed to specify in their official returns the vote -in the race for railroad commis sioner. The following is a tabular statement of the official vote in the several coun ties of the State for Governor: TOLSTOI'S INDICTMENT AND VITAL PROPHECY 1 11 1 D Let me figure with you on your feeding this winter.

P1TTMAH, Manager Union City, Tenn, 35-yard run by Davis and terrific line plunging by Engelhard, Morey and Simpson sent the pig-skin across K. M I.'s goal line for the final touchdown of the game. Seraora is there a game between two more evtnly matched teams. Failure to catch a punt out after the first touch down cost High School its chance for i tie. ' While some players stood out more prominently than others, there were no .apparent shortcomings on either side Whites!!,' Fargo and Peck led the at tack of the Cadets, while Davis, Neal, Morey and Simpsen figured prominent ly for the Purple. , The heralded ad vantage in weight on the part of the Cadets was not perceptible, both teams apparently averaging close to the same mark. WHITESELL MAKES RUN. High School kicked off to K. M. I. and after an attempted line plunge the ball was given to Wbitesell, who thrilled tbJbig crowd by making a sixty-five- yard run straight through the entire Purple eleven for a touchdown. Fargo kicked goal. The half ended High School 13, K. M. I. 7. The second half began by K. M. I. kicking off to High School. The Purple was unable to gain through the soldiers' line and Caron punted to Skidmore. Play was resumed in midfield and the soldiers tore up High School's defense by a number of !ine plunges by White- sell, Fargo and Peck. , The ball was carried to the High School's eight-yard line, where Fargo succeeded in tieing the score, and by a successful goal kick placed bis team in the lead. High School kicked off to K. M. I. and the ball was brought back by Capt. Peck to midfield. Wbitesell, Park and Fargo started another march down the field and placed the ball on High School '8 six-yard line, and Capt. Peck was shoved over for the soldiers' last touchdown, and Fargo kicked an easy goal. Hunter Whitesell is a son of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Wbitesell, here, and friends read of his successes with interest.

Returns in Claiborne not yet canvassed. . Parisian ivory toilet sets. Dietzel. Made Years Ago Before the Au thor's Impairment Their spiritual outlines are now before my eyes. I see floating upon the sur face of the sea of human fate the huge silhouette of a nude woman. She is, with her beauty, poise, her smile, her jewels a super-Venus. Nations rush madly after her, each of them eager to attract her especially. But she, like an eternal courtesan, flirts with all her hair ornaments, of diamonds an rubies, is engraved her name, "Com mercialism." As alluring and bewitch ing as she seems, much destruction an agony follow in her wake. Her breath reeking of sordid transactions, her voice of metallic character like gold, and her look of greed are so much poison to the nations who fall victims , to her charms. Aud behold, she has three gigant arms with three torches of universal corruption in her hands. The first torch represents the flame of war, that th beautiful courtesan carries from city to city and country to country. Patriot ism answers with flashes of honest flame, but the end is a roar of guns and muskets The second torch bears the flame of bigotry and hypocrisy. It lights the lamps only in temples and on the altars of sacred institutions. It carries the seed of falsity and fanaticism kindles the minds that are still in cradles and follows them to their graves. The third torch is that of the law that dangerous foundation lof all un authentic traditions, which first does its fatal work in the family, then sweeps through the larger world of literature art and statesmanship. The great conflagration will start about 1912, set by the torch of the first arm in the countries of southeastern Europe, It will develop into a destruction an calamity in 1914. In that year I see all Europe in flames and bleeding, hear the lamentations of huge battle fields But in the year 1915 the strange fig ure from the north a new Napoleon enters the stage of the bloody drama, He is a man of little militaristic train ing, a writer or a journalist, but in his grip most of Europe will remain unti 1925 The end of the great calamity will mark a new political era for the old world. There will be left no empires or kingdoms, but the world will form a federation of the United States Nations. There will remain only fou great giants The Anglo-Saxons, the Latins, the Slavs and the Mongolians. After the year 1925 I see a change in religious sentiment. The second torch of the courtesan has brought about the the fall of the church. The ethical idea has almost vanished. Humanity without moral feeling. But then a great reformer arises. He will clear the world of the relics of monotheism and lay the corner stone of the temple of pantheism. God, soul, spirit and immortality will be molten in a new furnace, ana i see tne peace ful beginning of an 'ethical era. The man determined to this mission is i Mongolian Slav. He is already walk ing the earth a man of active affairs He himself does not now realize the mission assigned to him by Superior Powers. And, behold, the name of the third torch, which has already begun to de stroy our family relations, our stand ards of art and morals. The relation between woman and man is accepted as a prosaic partnership of the sexes. Art has become realistic degeneracy. Political and religious disturbances have shaken thespirilual foundations of all nations. Only small spots here and there have remained untouched by those three de structive flames. The anti-natidna! wars in Europe, the class war of America and the race wars in Asia have strangled progress for half a century. By then, in the middle of this century, I see a heroine of literature and art rising from the ranks of the Latins and Persians, the world of tho tedious stuff of the obvious. It is the light of symbolism that shall outshine the light of the torch of com mercialism. In place of polygamy and of 18 monogamy of to-day there will come a poetogamy relations of the sexes based fundamentally on the poetic concep tions of life. And I see the nations growing larger and realizing that the alluring woman of their destiny is after all nothing but an illusion. There will be a time when the world w ill have no use for armies, hypocritical religions and degenerate art. Life is evolution, an evolution is development Jroni the simple to the more complicated forms of mind and body. I see the passing show of the world drama, in its present form, how it fades like the glow of evening upon the moun tains. One motion of the hand of com mercialism and a uew history begins. NEWS NOTES.- : Adjustment of conditions at the re opening of the New York and London Stock Exchanges is the only point that remains to be settled at the conferences betw6en Sir George Paish and the Gov ernment officials. It is hoped that a credit can be secured in the Bank pf England to take up American securities thrown on the market.

In Memory, 0 When the first rays of day shone over the earth and the moon cast her pale ness on the deep solitude on Nov. 1 at 4 a. m, death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. W, Irvine, near Clayton, and put its cold chilly hands on Irene, age 19. She was sick many weeks of typhoid fever of which she died. When read of her death in the 'paper I wandered back to our many happy school days together end to the night when sbo become a Christian and joined the church, all were so dear to me. The memory of her sweet face and many kind deeds shall live on and on with me. can never forget her. A loved one has gone from the midst of a circle that once was so gay. . An angel possesses the soul of the body that now lays in the clay. The shadow of one they loved is gone from the home forever more. Tbey listen for the sound of that voice forever still,, but no more will ber voice be heard. Irene has found joy in the Master's will. Parents miss her from 'their home, and earth seems bright no more, and joy that once gladden has no more part, and they new witn heart of faith she rests for ever more, where never weariness or pain shall make her faint or fail. Up oo the fair eternal, hills the Master will meet and welcome her. Shis will feel the touch of his hnl, nd there trith loved ones she waits for those whose hearts are sore. Sad hearts look unto God, for whom be loveth ha cbsstencth. rene is not dead but is only gone to ve witn jesua lorever more. At sun rise hour the reaper passed from that cottager door and isafoly in bis bosom Irene's sou! he bore. ' The flowers she loved have withered. They, miss ber tender care.-: , Met pet, with drooping pinions, are slowly dying there. And by the -cheerless hearthside her !oved ones BiUingiQLC Wait, for reapers coming, wait forthe Master's will.
